You can nominate an article you would like to see featured; just say a few words about why, and select a good time to go. Well-known and/or popular destinations should be nominated as Destination of the Month, while more obscure destinations should be nominated for Off the Beaten Path. Any destination, region, itinerary or event that passes the "What is an article?" test is eligible for DotM/OtBP.
The basic format of a nomination is as follows:
===[[Destination]]=== Great article and it's just luvvly-jubbly in the springtime. ~~~~
However, before nominating, please check that the article follows these basic guidelines:
You can also comment on any previous nomination based on timeliness and adherence to the criteria above, just add a bullet point (*) and your signed opinion.
===[[Destination]]=== Great article and it's just luvvly-jubbly in the springtime. TravelNut 25:25, 31 Feb 2525 (EDT) * Looks nice, but shouldn't the Do section contain more than just quilting contests? ~~~~
If an article gets several comments in favor and none against for a week or so, it's eligible to be placed in an appropriate time-slot in the queue.
Please note that the following are not considered valid reasons to oppose a nomination:
Upcoming DOTM / OTBP
The following queue should contain about months' worth of upcoming destinations. DotMs and OTBPs are changed in the first few days of each month, and the voting takes place in the Travellers' pub.
These are not cast in stone, and the order can be changed if, for example, an excellent guide for a timely event is found. Whenever a guide becomes a current feature, it should be removed from the list, the discussion archived, and a new month added to the end of the queue. Alternatives are OK; the whole point is to enable some discussion as needed.
The section below provides an opportunity to see what the DOTM and OTBP looks like on the Main Page. Please remember that main page real-estate is a valuable commodity, so keep the description brief and the photo small.
