Proposal of new features

As someone who has held the position of website admin/moderator in the past, I can vouch that introducing new features or elements to a site can vastly improve the interest of visitors, by standing out from other sites of the same brand.
I would like to put forward a few ideas for the admins' consideration:

Article of the Month - A lot of websites and Wikis do this. With 2000+ articles on this Wiki, AotM could filter out the pages which are deemed "well edited", among the other pages which are incomplete or minuscule. How do the other sites choose their page? Is it down to a vote or a random selection from a list?
Chat sounds - I'm not sure whether this is possible, but I find it really tedious to be in the chat, open a new tab and browse from there, then check the chat 10 minutes later and realise I've missed a few paragraphs worth of conversation. So would it be possible to add a bleep for each message? From my experience, we don't have any regular spammers in the chat.
Unique Templates for users - This one seems the most probable. In the vein of the MLP wiki, could users have their own templates to list all their characters (be it, as part of a series or not)?
Edit: I realized that several users in fact use templates on their articles to discourage other potential editors. I suppose if a template on the top of an article is okay, the same can be said for the bottom of a page.

Category:Organizations - Following up to User:CoryCodeRed's proposal, I'd like to further encourage the addition of this category to the approved list.
Template:Fanon - It would be nice if a template existed for the articles based on canon, with the purpose being to denote user created content below said template. Let me know if this exists or not.

"As for the Article of the Month: I am not sure if we should do that because in my opinion, this wikia is supposed to be a place where every page is special in their own unique way and "no page here is more special than another".

So I honestly dont think we should have an "Article of the Month", as while it might make some users (notably those whose pages are chosen) happy, then it might make others upset, like Absol said, which I think we should try to avoid."

Having an article of the month doesn't mean it's more special.

But I  can see some people getting upset over it. (which is kinda silly if you ask me)

How about this: One user cannot win page of the month for 2 months in a row

We can also have everyone pick out a number, and we put it through  random number picker program so it's totally random.

But I really think we should give it a try, but it's up to the other admins

Thanks for all of your suggestions guys.

Bleck, I just want to ask about where you stand on my suggestion of making the admins easier to spot to other users.

Also, I could take care of the coding and such for that as I know the codes. So it is a matter of all the admins agreeing on it.

About the category thing: I personally prefer "Organisations" over "Groups" because organisations sounds more professional, and this is a wiki after all.

1 Answer: I think it sounds like a good idea if it will really help other users knowing who all of the Admins on this wikia are and who they should ask for help, as they dont always seem to bother checking/reading the "List of Admins" here.

And ok, I am not sure if I will use that feature myself, but if you and the other Admins agree and would like to use it, then its ok for me.

2 Answer: Ok, well I still think "Groups" would be better to be honest, but it depends on what the other Admins thinks as well. :l

The more professional sound of Organizations is why I chose that word to begin with, over corperations.

Organizations is better.

Updated my post. Does a template exist for fanon on pages of canon (e.g. Tirek, Everfree Forest, etc).

So whats up it seemed like some progress might be made here and then the discussion just died, is there going to be a vote or something for these new features?, is the catagory going to be added?, what about Hypno1337's suggestion for the catagory for Hermaphodites?

1. No templates for fanon pages that I'm aware of.

2. There aren't enough pages for a hermaphodite category.
