Very Important QuestionEdit
I'm happy to answer that one for you. It is pronounced Tim-Owen. (The same way Jimeoin is spelt). Its literally my actual name, spelt in a fancy way, and minus the last letter of my surname. :) Hope that helps. Timeoin•Say G'Day•View my work 13:21, January 1, 2014 (UTC)
The reason why the current featured article has been on the main page for months is because there are literally no other articles on this wiki that we feel are up to standard. We have looked at the nearest contenders and even they need work to be up to par.
We would much rather have no new featured article than rush out a sub-standard atticle for the sake of it. Anyone is free to work on an article and get it up to standard - the problem is we don't have many users who do large edits and revamp entire pages. Hope that explains it.
