Featured ArticleEdit

Featured Articles must be notable subjects with all necessary information included on the page, including links, quotes and proper formatting.

Beast of BodminEdit

After I suggested Roadblock, I noticed that the other robot from the Bodmin Community College hadn't featured, and I think it would be a good choice, it is quite a full article. Though, it should probably be left for another rotation or two, it would probably look a bit daft to have one robot from a given team after another. Datovidny (talk) 22:27, March 16, 2012 (UTC)

TsunamiEdit

In light of it recently returning to the scene upon Robot Wars' return. I guess you could choose another robot that still competes, but at least I'm sure Tsunami hasn't been done before. Datovidny (talk) 15:06, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

I don't feel Tsunami is good enough as an article for featuring, there's little detail on its Series 7 campaign, and its German Wars information is outclassed by other robot pages. ToastUltimatum 17:07, May 15, 2013 (UTC)


Robot Wars: The Fourth Wars/Heat JEdit

If you've read the article, then you'll know that it is a huge improvement over most of the heats pages, there is about 3 to 5 pictures per battle, with around 10 quotes on the entire page, including a couple of full-blown conversations. I'm hoping to expand the other heat pages as good as this at some point. RelicRaider (talk) 19:12, August 6, 2013 (UTC)

Chaos 2Edit

Put simply. Two time champion. Never been Featured Article, despite being one of the oldest article on the Wiki. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 10:29, August 3, 2016 (UTC)

Featured VideoEdit

Featured Videos should be notable and entertaining, and hosted on a public video site such as YouTube.

Series 5/6 Losers' MeleesEdit

Any of the four, I'm not fussed, but I put them forward because they all contained good robots, and since melees always seem a little bit more interesting than head to heads. Datovidny (talk) 15:02, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

Dantomkia's losers' melee in Series 6 is naturally the melee I would highlight as the best one. ToastUltimatum 17:07, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

Gravity vs. Das GepäckEdit

As well as being an entertaining battle, it's Round 1, so minimal spoilers for a series not everyone will have seen, and it demonstrates two foreign robots that were successful in the UK Wars. I'm not sure if we have featured a Dutch battle, so here's the chance. ToastUltimatum 17:07, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

Top 10 Battles according to Robot Wars WikiEdit

Many of you will have seen the videos I made counting down the battles in the Top 10 list which CrashBash made around the time of our fifth anniversary. This may seem like shameless self-promotion, but I think they would make good featured videos for the main page as they could not be more relevant to the wiki.

As there were only ever 5 nominees, I have limited it down to 5 here. Jimlaad43(talk) 19:09, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

I like the idea a lot. Christophee (talk) 19:32, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
I'll use them in the next three main page updates Jimlaad, if that's ok. Sam (BAZINGA) 20:05, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Sounds good!!! Best Engineering and Sportsmanship seemed a bit harder to award, so lets keep it at these three. Jimlaad43(talk) 20:13, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Awesome, that's give me until the end of the year to think of more polls. Sam (BAZINGA) 20:16, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
