Proposal: Tips and Tricks for Entering Events

After spending a good deal of my time creating this page, along with contributions from other well-know Y!PP fan arrrtists, I would love to see my article featured, in order to encourage players to enter the many art contests, especially the Avatar Revolutions Event.

The article does contain some personal opinion, mainly in the reviews of individual products/programs, but I believe the comments are justified and truthful. The page also covers general posting technique, including how to 'reply to post' and not to 'post new thread', which I believe to be important, and which also makes the article relevant to non-Event enterers and newer forum-goers alike.

The page is not Event-specific, and therefore can be featured indefinitely if required. The page will not expire of lose relevance over time. Feel free to PM me on the forums as seb_long_uk, or message me on my talk page if you have any questions or concerns.

Change this

This should probably be changed right, its been up for a while... how about something more recent, like Haunted Seas or Viking Raids. I can't find anything good at the moment, but I'll look later. --Lcawte 08:15, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

I addressed this a couple of weeks ago in the YPPedia Q&A thread in the forums, and I'll paraphrase my response here: the fastest way for the featured article to change is for you (or any other interested party) to write up a replacement. It's not a matter of sitting back and waiting for someone to get around to it, but rather it's something to be proactive about. Be bold, even. Whip something up in your user namespace. Though it hasn't been active in a long while, this article might be a good start for ideas. --Belthazar451 13:37, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
I've mocked up a new featured article suggestion (see this forum post) on the topic of expeditions. Feedback appreciated! --Therobotdude 12:54, 5 July 2014 (PDT)
The above post also links to a second featured article on the ocean merge based on the one drafted here by Chupchup. --Therobotdude 01:13, 7 July 2014 (PDT)
