To start of the year, how about a Peasant's Quest thing. Like [[Rather Dashing]], [[Peasantry]], [[The Three Keepers of Trogdor]] or [[The Trog-Cave]]? {{User:Sam the Man/sig}} 19:23, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

How about a daily featured article week with [[Compy 386]] emails. Just some classics: [[comic]], [[japanese cartoon]], [[dragon]], [[crazy cartoon]], [[personal favorites]], [[monument]], [[video games]], [[your friends]], [[invisibility]], [[time capsule]], [[monster truck]]. {{User:Sam the Man/sig}} 20:35, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

This is a placeholder topic for 5-year redirects. Due to overall decreased activity, FAs are now being reused more often. The common practice has become to redirect to the FA exactly 5 years prior to the current FA. When an article is re-used, mark it in the following manner:
-
:I think most Compy emails are big enough to be featured for a whole week. Plus, I don't really like having daily articles. {{User:Homestar-winner/sig}} 12:13, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
+
<pre>
-
::I think this is a good idea to do at some point (I ''don't'' think more than a few compy emails are worth a whole week), but I think it's still too soon after our most recent set of dailies. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 16:51, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Another grammar thing! I'd personally like to see '''[[Nondescript Nouns]]''', but it's prose is too short. Perhaps we could expand it? {{User:Sam the Man/sig}} 18:43, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

-
:I've always thought Nondescript Nouns's scope was a bit ambiguous, and I don't really think it's our finest work. Perhaps another running gag, such as [[Crapfully Yours]]? {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 03:55, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

:::I tend to think we already feature emails often enough. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 06:49, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
+
-
::::Perhaps but:
+
-
::::#A sizeable portion of the H*R content are emails, making them an important type of article to feature.
+
-
::::#In the last 26-week stretch, I counted 9 sbemails being featured. However, 7 of those were part of a daily feature of [[HRWiki:Featured_articles/Archive_5#Week_29.2C_2007.2C_Day_7|week 29]].  Only two have been feature since then: [[what I want]] and [[alternate universe]], although #150 is a milestone, both emails are pretty recent compared to some of the older "classics" that have yet to be featured.
+
-
::::#[[mascot]] has also been turned down, but I would like to take another step to complete [[HRWiki_talk:Featured_Article_Selection#Milestone_emails.ElCool's list]]. I feel like that 1-week spat gave a false sense of email over-featuring.  (Granted we definitely don't need another weekly email feature for some time.)

::At some point, we ought to feature something from the Lappynapping saga. Ideally, I'd love to feature the entire saga for a week, but we don't exactly have a summary article for the whole thing, and I'm not sure we should. One possibility could be just featuring [[cliffhangers]] one week and [[retirement]] the next (pros, it allows us to cover the saga; cons, it takes up two weeks). {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 21:42, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

[[Who Said What]]. That game is very popular now, and should be featured, especially since it is so far the only old game not featured.

-
:In case this is not clear to anyone: We will not be featuring Who Said What Now? until such a time that we can unprotect this article. In the meantime, please don't suggest featuring it, since such suggestions cannot be honored. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 01:52, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Redirects

This is a placeholder topic for 5-year redirects. Due to overall decreased activity, FAs are now being reused more often. The common practice has become to redirect to the FA exactly 5 years prior to the current FA. When an article is re-used, mark it in the following manner:

{{FA queue|<date>|Redirects|alternatediscussion=yes|decision=<article name>}}

Example:

{{FA queue|15 Aug 2011 |Redirects|alternatediscussion=yes|decision=1-Up}}

Please keep this discussion in the FA page at all times, but do copy it to archive pages as well.
