I think there should be a "Latest untested builds"-page. Currently there is no way to promote a new build. So some people already started to put there own builds up as featured builds. If everybody starts doing that the MainPage will be changed every 60 seconds. ;) Another thing could be a "random untested/trial build"-box on the MainPage. That would be a way to give new Builds a little starter. Masta Lani 09:51, 6 October 2007 (CEST)

You have to Edit the whole page (the tab at the top, of course), and then find the build you want to replace, and replace it with yours. Just make sure the style (spaces instead of underscores, no "Build:"...) matches. Also, make sure the build you want to replace is vetted. ــмıкεнaшк 23:30, 8 August 2008 (EDT)

The build you submitted was moved to Build:Rt/any Xinrae's RA. Just keep an eye on the untested featured builds, and once one is vetted (i.e. trashed, rated acceptable, rated good, rated great...) you can replace it. ــмıкεнaшк 10:47, 9 August 2008 (EDT)
I did that, I waited for a build to get trashed and then when I tried to add the build, everything I tried didn't work.--Ikimono 17:01, 9 August 2008 (EDT)
Make sure you're editing the whole page, and the Show Preview button doesn't actually work, so you just have to submit it. ــмıкεнaшк 17:30, 9 August 2008 (EDT)

That was likely the problem; I've added a note in the directions. ــмıкεнaшк 17:32, 9 August 2008 (EDT)
