  • 9th November 2010: Metroid Wiki has modified the requirements for a user to become autoconfirmed. Instead of needing 200 edits and the account 30 days old, users become autoconfirmed once they have made 20 edits and have an account 7 days old. We have also made several changes to our featured article and picture system. It now requires two staff votes and three votes from regular users in order to be approved, and the initial nomination will also count as one of the votes. Visit the featured article page to vote to make Metroid Prime 3: Corruption our first featured article and visit the featured picture page to vote to make File:Rundas.png our first featured image.
