Nominations for articles to be featured on the front page.

Guidelines

  • Nominations must be at the very least 350 words long.
  • An article is featured every month, or at the admins' discretion.
  • Whichever article has the most votes at the end of the month is featured for a month.
    • Each downvote counts as a point down for the nominee.
    • In case of a tie, the one with fewer downvotes wins.
  • Admin votes carry the same weight as regular users' votes.
  • All nominations and votes must be signed with four tildes (~~~~). Unsigned nominations and votes will be nullified.
  • Nominations and votes CANNOT BE CHANGED. Each user can only vote ONCE, for and against.
  • An article cannot be nominated twice in a row (if an article was nominated in the previous voting, it cannot be nominated again in the current one).
  • Users cannot nominate articles two months in a row.
  • Only six nominations max for every monthly voting are allowed. Any nomination surpassing this limit will be automatically disqualified.
  • CHEATING WILL NEVER BE TOLERATED. Any user who starts downvoting candidates just to rig the results or go asking other users to vote on his candidate will receive a warning and, in case of reincidence, a one month ban. No exceptions.
  • The use of sockpuppets in VFH is extremely forbidden, resulting in the permanent ban of the sockpuppet's account(s) and in the deletion of your nominated villain.
  • Once the vote was posted, there is no turning back to edit the description of your vote. If you voted against a candidate for a trivial reason and had your vote discarded by an admin, it will be forbidden to go back and edit the reason of your vote to make your denied vote valid again. Doing so will result in a week ban, NO exceptions.
  • There is a limit for how many times a villain can be nominated in a period of time. If a candidate is downvoted but still being brought to VFH more than once in the following months, the limit is 3 attempts. If a villain is downvoted 3 times, the villain can not be proposed again until 12 months has passed after the last proposal. Bringing the villain back before then is a violation of this rule and the candidate will be erased from the nominations. For this limit to reset, the villain must not be proposed for 12 months after the last proposal.

Suggestions

  • Be original and creative with the nominations.
  • Don't vote against a villain if you haven't read the article about it yet.
  • Don't vote against a villain just because you know nothing about him/her/it.
  • Don't say anything that may be offensive to another.
  • If you're going to vote against, present an actual argument for your reasoning. "He's boring" or "I don't like him" aren't arguments.

The correct nomination format is as follows:

Ernst Stavro Blofeld

For: 4
Against: 0
  • (if anyone votes against:) against reasons for against
Comments
  • Decided to give James Bond's greatest archenemy a headline nom for two reasons. 1) No Time to Die (hopefully) comes out next year, and 2) 2021 is the 60th anniversary of the publication of Thunderball, Blofeld's first appearance in the Bond stories. It’s a perfect year for this monster to grace the front page.
  • Due to his upcoming appearance in the new Bond film, it would be fitting to have this monster of a man featured. (Didn't we do the same for Candyman?)

Davy Jones (Pirates of the Caribbean)

For: 6
Against:
  • (if anyone votes against:) against reasons for against
Comments
  • I feel that the POTC hasn't gotten quite the attention yet on this site, which is a shame because these movies helped revive the swashbuckler genre. In terms of nominating a villain, I think Davy Jones is one of the best that the franchise has to offer, both in story, design and just overall character. Once a good sailor that fell in love with the sea goddess herself, cursed he felt betrayed and lied to when she wasn't there for him in person and as a result, he finds himself having to abandon every humanity left in him and subject himself to becoming the cursed sea monster that makes those become a part of the Flying Dutchman Crew.
  • Probably one of the only reason i saw Dead Man's Chest recently was because of him.

Dorian Gray

For: 1
Against: 0
  • (if anyone votes against:) against reasons for against
Comments
  • One of the first recognized supervillains as well as one of the first anti-villains.

The Undertaker (WWE)

For: 3
Against: 0
  • (if anyone votes against:) against reasons for against
Comments
  • The Undertaker is one of the most prolific professional wrestlers in history and probably the most iconic "heel" in wrestling. I think it's time we gave him the honor of being headlined. We haven't had a wrestler headlined at all before, to my knowledge.

Soraya Montenegro

For: 1
Against: 0
  • (if anyone votes against:) against reasons for against
Comments
  • It's time for a novela/soap opera villain to be headlined after seeing no novela/soap opera villains were headlined. Soraya Montenegro will live forever in the hearts of the telenovela viewers.

Katz

For: 2
Against: 0
  • (if anyone votes against:) against reasons for against
Comments
  • Although Skeletor was headlined recently, we don't often have western cartoon villains headlined, and this sly cat definitely serves up as a good antagonist for a good show.
