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:
 +
<pre>
 +
{{FA queue|<date>|Redirects|alternatediscussion=yes|decision=<article name>}}
 +
</pre>
 +
Example:
 +
<pre>

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

How about something 20X6-related instead? Perhaps either [[Make-O Your Own Stinko]] or [[Stinkoman 20X6]] (I know we're waiting until it's finished, but at the rate the site is going, I don't think it'll ever be finished)? {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 12:18, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
+
Please keep this discussion in the FA page at all times, but do copy it to archive pages as well.

::If we're going to do an interview or public appearance, how about a more notable one? I can't really think of one (I'm not really into that sort of stuff), and besides, I wholeheartedly believe that we should do something 20X6-related this week. {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 12:38, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:::RickTommy, that's the same thing you suggested for last week before it was deleted. So stop hogging the spotlight. --[[Special:Contributions/209.148.176.136|209.148.176.136]] 12:49, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

::::What's more, Stinkoman 20X6 is still incomplete. And judging by how things are looking on the website now, I think it will always remain incomplete. [[User:MHarrington|MHarrington]] 02:10, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:::::Um, I said almost those exact words. Yes, it doesn't look like it will ever be finished. So it's no use waiting for it to be finished before we can feature it. {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 06:10, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

-
:::::We ''could'' do Make-o Your Own Stinko... {{User:Power Pie/sig}}

+
-
:::::::Sorry if I sound pushy but I really really think [[Make-o Your Own Stinko]] should be featured. {{User:Power Pie/sig}} 01:45, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
+
-
::::::::Given the new recommendation format all you need to do is create a separate entry for [[Make-o Your Own Stinko]] so that it can be added to the queue. --[[User:Stux|Stux]] 15:01, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:::::::::How? {{User:Power Pie/sig}} 01:52, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
+
-
::::::::::Easy just follow the format for the other sections and add a header for the article in the wikicode like so:
+
-
::::::::::<blockquote><code><nowiki>==[[Make-o Your Own Stinko]]==</nowiki></code></blockquote>
+
-
::::::::::followed by your explanation for it. --[[User:Stux|Stux]] 21:56, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:::::::::::<s>How about featuring it for Jan 3-9?</s> Well, it looks like Jan 3-9 is reserved for [[Cheatball]], whose write-up was moved in favour of [[Timeline of Homestar Runner]]. So what should we do about that? {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 05:18, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
+
-
::::::::::::Again, RickTommy, the format of FAs has changed and articles are no longer reserved by date unless there's a compelling reason for it.  If you'd like a specific 20X6 article please suggest it the way all other articles are suggested.  In moderation of course. --[[User:Stux|Stux]] 19:20, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:::::::::::::But Jan 3-9 is 20X6 week. {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 22:31, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
+
-
::::::::::::::To elaborate on the above, Stinkoman was created on this this week a few years back. {{User:Power Pie/sig}} 19:10, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:::::::::::::::I think everyone knows that. :) {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 00:16, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
+
-
::::::::::::::::I actually like the idea of doing this one for the Stinkoman's birthday. Poor guy never got any Stinkoman-shaped pancakes, but at least we can give him an FA, right? {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 09:09, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:Well, while populating the queue I {{pl|l=http://www.hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=HRWiki:Featured_article_for_2011,_week_1&action=history discovered}} that the [[Cheatball]] was already {{pl|l=http://www.hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=HRWiki%3AFeatured_article_for_2011%2C_week_1&diff=691433&oldid=691136 postponed}} to this year.  While the actual [[Stinkoman 20X6]] article is in the queue (not set in stone yet of course), do we want to keep 20X6 and pre-empt the poor [[Cheatball]] again or do we want to postpone 20X6 instead?  --[[User:Stux|Stux]] 20:15, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

-
::Since there were no comments either way I decided to keep the [[Cheatball]] and retain the hope that the game will be completed in the near future and not turn into a [[Wikipedia:Duke Nukem Forever|Duke Nukem Forever]] :) --[[User:Stux|Stux]] 16:38, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

We haven't featured a Superbowl-themed article yet, so how about either [[Superbowl Dealie]] or [[Sloshybowl]]? {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 02:17, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:Ooh, I like that idea. I'm for either of them: both are funny, both are just as related to the topic as the other, and both are popular. [[User:doctorwho295]] 18 December 2010
+
-
::{{p|l={{fullurl:HRWiki:Featured article for 2011, week 5|oldid=717852&diff=prev}} It appears}} that there's been a change to the current FA, using this article instead. I say: too late. Just because everyone is slacking off on FAS does not mean at all (at least to me) that we should switch articles in the middle of the week to compensate. I hate to be blunt, but if people wanted this to be the featured article for the week of the Superbowl, they should have participated and put this into the spotlight sooner, if not to overthrow the nomination for [[#The Brothers Strong|The Brothers Strong]]. The nomination for The Brothers Strong went through the exact same thing. My sincere apologies to Ni, whose edits I'm sure are hearty and in good faith (and possibly hesitant considering the "if that's okay" in the edit summary, though that might be modifying the move of TBS), but I'm afraid I'm not for this sudden change at all. {{User:Soiled Bargains/sig}} 05:53, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

How about [[Strong Bad Sings]] instead? {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 01:06, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

:If you're talking about the toon, that's too short to work. If you're talking about the CD, we already did that. I'm all for featuring [[Credenza]]. {{User:Power Pie/sig}}

::For once, RickTommy, actually focus on what is already suggested instead of hogging the spotlight. --[[User:Kingdom Stars|Kingdom Stars]] 02:24, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
 
-
:::Of course I'm talking about the toon. And ''I'' don't think it's too short to work. One, it is one of the earliest toons on the site, and two, it was the inspiration for the CD. {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 06:28, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
 
-
::::Length has nothing to do with an article's featurability. In this case, I see no reason as to why this article shouldn't be featured, and a few compelling reasons it should. It did spawn the title of the only audio CD released by TBC, several song titles were used on said CD, and it's one of the first uses of the Casio Keyboard. It's written quite well, to boot. --{{User:Super Martyo Brother/sig}} 08:06, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

===[[Strong Bad and Strong Sad's Relationship]]===

The most obvious relationship on the site, and one that I have audibly cried at. {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 10:41, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
 
-
:An interesting topic, but the intro is pretty short. Could we maybe expand it? Then it'd probably make a fine feature. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 17:03, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Since FAs seem to be in a bit of trouble currently, I was so bold to expand Power Pie's writeup a little. Consider this:
 
-
<blockquote>'''[[Strong Bad]]'s relationship with [[Strong Sad]]''' usually consists of Strong Bad hurting or making fun of Strong Sad, though not all the time. He has given Strong Sad various [[Nicknames#Strong Sad|insulting nicknames]] and often hurts him. However, Strong Sad and Strong Bad occasionally get along, usually when Strong Bad is in need of an assistant. It appears that Strong Bad is at least partly responsible for his little brother's depression; Strong Sad [[Strong Bad Is In Jail Cartoon|writes]] that in his big brother's absence, "[He feels] cooler, and less like [he sucks] so bad.". It does however happen that Strong Sad stands up to his tormentor. This includes [[couch patch|revealing embarassing details about Strong Bad’s childhood]] or making him believe that [[your edge|staying in a deep, dark hole is "edgy"]]. Most of the time though, their relationship is one of abuse pointed towards the younger brother, just as in many families in real life.</blockquote>

:definitely not a bad idea. however, it doesn't look like we know the release date closer than the year and what the [http://web.archive.org/web/20010627143349/http://www.homestarrunner.com/fluffypuff2.html WayBack Machine] has told us. so theoretically, for all we know, just featuring it at some point in the first half of 2011 is accurate enough. Also, it would appear as though [[rock opera]] is currently the one selected to be the Featured Article for the week you suggested. That's not in stone until the week happens, but it isn't likely to change. Doctorwho295 - could you rewrite your nomination to make it sound less week-specific? {{User:The Knights Who Say Ni/sig}} 23:18, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

:I will detract from featuring this article.

::::::::It is definitely important enough for a week to itself. It's one of the classics, being quoted and referenced (as I said earlier) in later 'toons.

-
:No, in that one, TBC specifically point out how bad it is. Quoting DF a few days ago, "FA is supposed to be our best stuff." Right now it looks like the only other option is [[Rotten Eggs]], which is less bad, but also, since Easter this year is a full month later than it was in the year rotteneggs came out, that toon is able to reference college basketball (albeit subtly), which won't be at the front of ppl's minds this late in april.

:::As the second anonny points out, this article has a been a serious point of contention on-wiki. I'm not sure we should feature on article that a number of users think shouldn't even be an article. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 02:03, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

It's the biggest page on this wiki - I think it deserves to be featured sometime soon. {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 10:41, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

:It seems too list-like and without enough prose to make a good feature to me. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 17:05, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

::Per Heimstern. Although we wre able to feature lists in the past by putting key examples in the writeup, I highly doubt that will work for the fonts page. {{User:Power Pie/sig}} 01:45, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

:::I'd say it's feature-worthy, and I could probably write a good FA paragraph on it, but it is really just one big list, albeit a long, useful one. --{{User:Super Martyo Brother/sig}} 06:01, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

How about starting off the new year with [[homestarrunner.com]], an article that has been nominated many times before? {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 05:18, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

::Uh, I disagree. This seems like a last resort kind of selection. We have plenty of articles. I think we can pick something else. --{{User:Record307/sig}} 22:38, 7 November 2010 (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.
