Automatic Article Of The Week System

    Keywords: SL description

bugcat: As we know, Article of the Week has repeatedly failed due to lack of input.

So I've come up with a semi-automatic process by which we can choose a new Article of the Week every week.


1. We consider the most viewed article in the six month list on Most Popular.

2. If it's been chosen before, we skip it and move onto the next most viewed article.

3. We try to exercise some discretion about what's interesting. There were some historical rules but I think we can do without them.

History and Context

AAWS ran from May to August of 2022. It continued from the revival of August to November 2021. That succeeded a short period of activity in 2014, which (along with one update in 2012) came after the end of the original regular AOTW in 2009.

Since August 2022, there have only been two new articles of the week: one in January (Fuseki Revolution) and one in March / April (Michael Redmond's Go TV).


Shall we reactivate the system?

I'd suggest this order.

1. Schrodinger's cat
(avoid refeaturing Michael Redmond's Go TV)
2. Mikito
(avoid fool (a homepage) and Oskar Korchelt (just a respelt name))
3. Knight sealed corner
4. Group safety level
5. Igo-Shogi Channel
