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.

Bad Graphics Ghost

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 43 (Oct 22–28)

Surprised it was never featured; also, it was once accidentally bolded on the nominations page. RickTommy (edits) 01:54, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

This will be nice to feature next year for Halloween. Second'd! — Ngamer01 18:30, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
I think we should hold this one off until Halloween next year as well. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 18:35, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
I approve of a Hallow's Eve '12 feature. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie 23:45, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
I'm guessing you guys mean the week before Ween? RickTommy (edits) 04:24, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, week before. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie 13:57, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
I made a draft of a Bad Graphics Ghost FA. -- Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:19, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

While I understand that you guys want to feature this for the week before 'Ween, I intended this one as a feature for any time. RickTommy (edits) 20:16, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Then you're going to be annoyed at Halloween FA reruns if we do this ASAP. At least by waiting, you'll get one new Halloween FA this year that is if FAS isn't put on hiatus by that time. — Ngamer01 13:44, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
I also think this will make a fine feature for halloween. — Defender1031*Talk 17:29, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
You know what, I've changed my mind. I don't think this should be featured at all if it's going to conflict with the suggestions that I have in mind for Ween. And like I said, I intended this one to be featured any time. Also, the week of Ween is specifically for the big toons. RickTommy (edits) 23:15, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
RickTommy, you're not approaching this the right way. You're talking about it conflicting with "the suggestions that I have in mind for Ween" and how "I intended this one to be featured at any time" (emphasis mine). What you think is scarcely the point. It's what the community thinks that matters, and they clearly think this article should be featured the week before Halloween. If it's against your plans, I'm sorry, that's rough. Heimstern Läufer 00:31, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
Actually Soiled Bargains, Defender, and I wanted this for Halloween week. Rick was the one that stated that everyone wanted it before Halloween when actually only Power Pie wanted it for before Halloween. So technically this doesn't have consensus. I'll move this out of the queue. — Ngamer01 03:25, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
Could we please have clarification on this? I assumed when people said "Halloween" they meant "the Halloween season", not specifically that week. Since we do indeed nearly always feature a full-length toon on Halloween itself, and I don't really see why it would be different this year. Are people fine with making this the week before Halloween? Heimstern Läufer 04:49, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

I'm cool with this being the week before, though I see no reason for it not to be the week of, especially in a Hiatus where there is not an unlimited supply of big halloween toons. Also, Ngamer, there IS consensus to feature, we even have consensus as to roughly when to feature, just not clear on which of the two proposed weeks. — Defender1031*Talk 11:52, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

You're right that there's not an unlimited supply of big toons, but there are some left that haven't been featured, and I think at least one is highly deserving of being featured. In fact, from what I can see, we still have three more years before we'd run out. And there is tradition: while I know that "we've always done it" isn't in and of itself a valid reason, all other things being equal, there's a lot to be said for sticking to tradition. And I for one am in favour of keeping our big toon tradition. Heimstern Läufer 14:46, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
Fair enough. Let's stick with the week before. — Defender1031*Talk 00:09, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
I guess I hadn't explained well my reasons from earlier. I mean I know there is consensus for this to be featured, but there was no consensus on when to feature and without that, this had to be moved out of the queue until consensus on when to feature was reached...which is now. I guess if Halloween FA week is for big Halloween toons only, I guess I'm fine with Bad Graphics Ghost being a lead-in to the actual Halloween FA week. — Ngamer01 19:11, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
I know this is a done deal but I also wanted to give my support for the week before halloween (week 43 as stated). Even if we run out of big toons to feature I think we can rerun old big toons in the coming years. --Stux 17:10, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Halloween Fairstival

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 44 (Oct 29–Nov 4)

Halloween Fairstival. RickTommy (edits) 04:11, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

Sure why not. Support. — Ngamer01 18:04, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
Since this'll be October 29... how about Pumpkin Carve-nival? It'll be ten years old to the day (Oct 29/02 - Oct 29/12) ...just another idea. That'sBupkis! 17:24, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
First of all, weclome back, Bupkis. Where have you been for the past year and a half? Second of all, Carve-nival has already been featured. RickTommy (edits) 05:20, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
Oh, okay. Also, I haven't been very active here lately, with the hiatus and what not... I guess when sbemail206 rolls around things will pick up :p That'sBupkis! 22:36, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
So, you support Fairstival, right? RickTommy (edits) 13:07, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, we could do that. That'sBupkis! 23:31, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

I had attempted to expand Rick's stub after moving it here. As soon as the writeup is reviewed and fixed, the redirect I did for Week 44 can be reverted for the finished writeup. — Ngamer01 03:39, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Strong Sad's iPod

To do HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 46 (Nov 12–18)

I'm feeling a little random and want to feel less hypocritical, so I'd like to throw this out as an suggestion. SS's iPods were seen on Podstar Runner 2006 and it's last incarnation Podstar Runner, so the iPod was important in the past. — Ngamer01 18:03, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Support, I guess. RickTommy (edits) 10:44, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
I've got a draft up for review and fixing if it'll help any. — Ngamer01 18:37, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
I think it needs to be reworded to make it clear that strong sad has had many ipods over the years, rather than talking about "strong sad's ipod" as a singular item. I like the idea of this as a feature, the writeup just needs significant improvement before i put in my complete support. — Defender1031*Talk 12:32, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I've improved it as best I can. RickTommy (edits) 14:37, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
After seeing the improvements, I support. (That Other Anonny Guy) 121.219.232.190 11:09, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
The draft now strikes me as being disjointed and the same kind of laundry list as some of the other drafts i've made similar comments about. I'd like to see a draft that's both cohesive and comprehensive. — Defender1031*Talk 11:51, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
I think my recent changes to the draft have brought it together in a way with which i'm satisfied. — Defender1031*Talk 12:04, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

2-Part Episode: Part 1

To do HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 48 (Nov 26–Dec 2)

I'm wondering how we'd feature these. Should we feature them simultaneously, back-to-back, or with Part 1 getting half a week and Part 2 getting the other half? RickTommy (edits) 01:03, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Back-to-back weeks would be best since each episode has enough material to make 'em stand for their own week. I don't see a need to feature both in one week. Support'd! — Ngamer01 16:17, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
I agree with Ngamer. — Defender1031*Talk 17:24, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

2-Part Episode: Part 2

To do HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 49 (Dec 3–9)

I'm wondering how we'd feature these. Should we feature them simultaneously, back-to-back, or with Part 1 getting half a week and Part 2 getting the other half? RickTommy (edits) 01:03, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Back-to-back weeks would be best since each episode has enough material to make 'em stand for their own week. I don't see a need to feature both in one week. Support'd! — Ngamer01 16:17, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
I agree with Ngamer. — Defender1031*Talk 17:24, 29 October 2012 (UTC)


Decemberween in July Dailies

To do HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 51 (Dec 17–23)

Homestar and the Nice Present. RickTommy (edits) 13:07, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

I propose a bit of a bolder move, and do a set of dailies from Decemberween In July. Most of them have already been featured on their own, but it'd be nice to see these featured all together. It'd include the above suggestion as well as a couple of other toons that haven't been featured yet. Here's the order i'd propose, with a star next to those that have been featured already (we can reuse the writeups for those):
— Defender1031*Talk 13:24, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
That set of dailies sounds like a fun idea! I support it. Heimstern Läufer 14:26, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
Holiday dailies of old and new sound good to me. Support'd! — Ngamer01 16:47, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
As much as I dislike redirects, it's almost worth doing them if they're part of a daily, given how uncommon dailies are. So I support this daily too. RickTommy (edits) 01:33, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Article discussions

Week of Thanksgiving (Nov 19-25)

Limozeen Thanksgiving E-Cards. RickTommy (edits) 10:44, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

I never liked that one. Personally, I'd suggest re-featuring Let us give TANKS!. — Defender1031*Talk 11:18, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
Didn't even realize that TANKS would have been the default rerun for this anyway. Also, to be clear, when I say re-feature, I don't necessarily mean using the same writeup, since it might be nice to expand it now that we're far less worried about giving spoilers. The old one also seems a bit dry as compared to the writeups we tend to do nowadays. — Defender1031*Talk 20:41, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
Less concerned about spoilers how? What exactly do you think should be added to the old writeup? I certainly don't think the ending with the nuclear device should be revealed on the main page; I think the ending gag definitely needs to remain a surprise. Heimstern Läufer 02:37, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
What I meant by less concerned about spoilers was... not important. I think I was thinking of something else which in my fully awake state doesn't make nearly as much sense as it did last night when I wrote that. Anyway, I'd expand the writeup somewhat to be a little less dry and more fun, and have a few more details. — Defender1031*Talk 13:31, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
A re-run just because someone doesn't like the original suggestion? I think not. I'll also propose Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 9.2. RickTommy (edits) 02:14, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
Let me be a bit more clear then. E-cards and MAM9 are not big thanksgiving toons, and they're both kinda meh. In addition, reruns when there's no consensus for an original suggestion is EXACTLY how the system works, and let me remind you again that you seem to be the only person who has any sort of problem with that. If we don't get consensus it'll end up being tanks anyway. I'm just attempting to head that off and propose we at least feature tanks with a newly created writeup, rather than reusing the old one. — Defender1031*Talk 08:56, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
I agree with Deffy on nearly all points, particularly that E-cards is kind of meh and that redirects are a fine solution that no one hates but you. As for MAM 9, I don't think it's meh at all, I think it's really, really funny. But it's not a Thanksgiving toon. It contains a Thanksgiving afterthought. In fact, I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to feature it right after Thanksgiving, since that's when it was released and when it's set, apparently. It would fit well with what's on readers' minds. But putting a toon about "Is it next Thanksgiving yet?" during the week of Thanksgiving does not fit well at all. Heimstern Läufer 10:17, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 9.2

Like Heimstern said, it's really really funny, and makes sense to be featured right after thanksgiving, so i'd like to see it featured for the following week, Nov 26 - Dec 2. — Defender1031*Talk 10:23, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Agree per already stated reasoning. Heimstern Läufer 10:26, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Snowglobe

Since we had a re-run for the week before D'ween last year, I think that we should make up for it by doing three D'ween articles this year. For this week, Snowglobe, the article that was suggested for the week before D'ween last year. RickTommy (edits) 13:07, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

I see no reason to do three this year just because one was a rerun last year. I also am not sure there's enough to say about snowglobe to feature. It's pretty much just a dumb snowglobe with a timer. — Defender1031*Talk 13:14, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
I agree with DeFender on both points. Heimstern Läufer 14:24, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
I also agree. Snowglobe just doesn't offer enough for a quality writeup now that I take a second look at it. — Ngamer01 16:47, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
I also agree that Snowglobe isn't worth featuring. (That Other Anonny Guy) 121.219.232.190 11:09, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

Week of Christmas/Decemberween (Dec 24-30)

A Decemberween Mackerel. RickTommy (edits) 13:07, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Nah, i kinda hate mackarel. Senor Cardgage isn't at all his usual self, and the whole toon just makes me feel like TBC had waited so long to make one that they forgot how to actually create a homestar toon. Kinda like star wars episode 1. A Death-Defying Decemberween is a much better choice. — Defender1031*Talk 13:26, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
Aww, I like Decemberween Mackerel! I don't think SC's any more out of character than we would expect for someone feeling the effects of hypothermia. Then again, I also like Death-Defying D'ween. I could go for either here. Heimstern Läufer 14:29, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
Well, for example, SC doesn't call people by female names, instead calling them things like "pez dispenser". His words that are almost "one word and not quite another" are not in his usual style. Heck, IMO, if you give him homsar's accent and wail, the lines fit a lot better. — Defender1031*Talk 14:34, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
I'd prefer Death-Defying D'ween over Mackarel only because we end with a Homsar cliffhanger that scares me in Mackarel. — Ngamer01 16:32, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Firebert

It's been a while since we've featured something Cheat Commandos-related. RickTommy (edits) 01:03, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

I do support this, but could we save him for the final week of 2012 since 20X6 and Trogdor would get the two weeks afterwards? — Ngamer01 16:30, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
What does Firebert have to do with 20X6 and Trogdor here? — Defender1031*Talk 17:24, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
They all have debuts that happened in January. Though if we're looking at this from a Cheat Commandos perspective, Firebert officially didn't appear with the Cheat Commandos until May 2004... — Ngamer01 18:26, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Plus, the last week of 2012 happens to be the week of Decemberween/Christmas. RickTommy (edits) 08:47, 1 November 2012
Hmm... I was hoping we could do something special for Firebert, but I guess since 20X6 and Trogdor always have priority at the start of January, then I'm fine with Firebert being featured at any time. — Ngamer01 13:41, 1 November 2012 (UTC) (UTC)

Jibblies

An important running gag. RickTommy (edits) 01:03, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

"Important"? To quote a very wise man, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." — Defender1031*Talk 17:24, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Horrible Painting

An important pseudo-character. RickTommy (edits) 01:03, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Good suggestion and I support it, but could we save this guy for the week before Halloween week next year? — Ngamer01 16:17, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
I also agree with saving this for halloween. — Defender1031*Talk 17:24, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
But once again, what about giving a fair chance to suggestions that I or anyone else may have in mind for that week? RickTommy (edits) 08:47, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
That aside, I'm not sure I think it's that great an idea to save Horrible Painting for then. It's not all that Halloweeny an item/pseudocharacter. It was the subject of Jibblies 2, it's true, but that's only one appearance out of quite a few. Next Halloween is also a long, long time away, and I'd like to hope we might have finally gotten around to replacing FAS by then (I know, I'm probably hoping too much). Heimstern Läufer 11:44, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
It was very significantly used as a halloween item though, and is extremely halloweeny, which is probably why TBC retconned it into being a halloween item. The better point you raise is how far away it is and the somewhat likely possibility that the system will be gone by then. For that reason, I guess it makes sense to feature whenever, as I do rather like the horrible painting and would hate to see it go unfeatured after being suggested. — Defender1031*Talk 12:06, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
If FAS gets the announcement that it'll end soon, then I do want the Horrible Painting to get it's feature before FAS closes. Otherwise I'd rather see this next year to kick-off the week before Halloween week even if Halloween week itself has a reran FA. — Ngamer01 13:41, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
I also think it's better to save it for Halloween if at all possible. -174.63.109.210 01:05, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Poker Night at the Inventory

Well, it's a crossover, it was made by the creators of SBCG4AP, and it was released during the hiatus. RickTommy (edits) 01:03, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

But the game isn't Homestar Runner related. The most you'd get out of a FA writeup is "This is a crossover. The rest of the writeup is just a H*R trivia list!" I don't support it. — Ngamer01 16:17, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
I agree with Ngamer. — Defender1031*Talk 17:24, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Completely untrue. Just look at the intro of the article. RickTommy (edits) 08:47, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
The intro paraphrased: "This is a crossover." Nothing H*R specific here outside of trivia. — Ngamer01 13:41, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

20X6 week (Dec 31-Jan 6)

Either Stinkoman 20X6 or Make-O Your Own Stinko. In the case of Stinkoman 20X6, I know it's been suggested several times that we wait until it's finished before we feature it, but at the rate H*R is going, it probably won't be finished. As for Make-O Your Own Stinko, it's the very first article for which I have drafted a write-up, which you can see here. RickTommy (edits) 08:47, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

For many years, I was opposed to featuring Stinkoman 20X6 before its completion, but now that it seems about as likely to be finished as Schubert's 8th Symphony is, I am no longer opposed. Indeed, given its importance, I would consider it a good choice for featuring. Heimstern Läufer 11:46, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Yeah let's go with Stinkoman 20X6. This may be it's last chance at a feature especially if FAS closes at some point later. — Ngamer01 13:41, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Week of Trogday (Jan 7-13)

Either 8-Bit is Enough or Wormdingler, the latter of which I suggested for the week of Trogday of this year. RickTommy (edits) 08:47, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Somebody was hoping we could have Wormdingler featured to celebrate Troggie's 10th anniversary, but I'm fine with 8-Bit is Enough to celebrate Troggie's 10th too. I support both, but I'll also support whatever wiki consensus specifically decides. — Ngamer01 13:41, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Carol

An important item/pseudocharacter. RickTommy (edits) 13:58, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Could be cute. I'd have to see a good writeup before i'm convinced. — Defender1031*Talk 16:16, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
Here's a good write-up. RickTommy (edits) 13:14, 26 August 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure i'd call it a "good" writeup... Seems rather disjointed to me. Comes off sounding like "In this toon, this happened. In this totally unrelated instance, this happened. In this third place, something else entirely." — Defender1031*Talk 14:11, 26 August 2012 (UTC)
I tried to rewrite the draft. I don't know if this works, but I do hope it'll help get this to a more wanted final version. I'd like to see a final version of this before I'll offer my support. — Ngamer01 00:30, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
I fixed one point to make it more accurate, but it still strikes me as lacking. Is there any way we could spruce it up a bit more? I can't quite put my finger on what i think is missing, which is a shame. — Defender1031*Talk 04:30, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
I don't know what it is that you think is missing, either. But I have somewhat improved the draft. RickTommy (edits) 15:49, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 7.0

I know [the week before 'Ween] is reserved for Bad Graphics Ghost, but I'd like to go ahead and propose the article that I had in mind for that week: Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 7.0. RickTommy (edits) 04:11, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

We already achieved consensus for something else, and I don't see any reason to change just to accommodate one user's plans to the contrary. Heimstern Läufer 14:42, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
I wholeheartedly agree! Routinely using subterfuge to undermine the FA process is underhanded and borders on the conniving. The FA proccess is a team effort and not a one-man show. Ricktommy, you knew the group made a decision and arrived at consensus yet you unilateraly decide that your way is better and somehow try to find a way to prod or manipulate your way into having everyone else follow your whim. This isn't how consensus works and you've routinely have had issues where you poke, prod and complain your way through the system just so what you want is featured. If not then you make suggestions weeks, if not months in advance long before anyone else even gets a chance to even consider thinking about possibly suggesting a feature somewhere, somehow. In the end your features end up dominating the system if we don't keep you in check. This has the negative effect of turning potential contributors away from FA. I ask that you show more courtesy for fellow editors and respect for the HRWiki community in general. --Stux 16:06, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
Also MAM 7 is rather weak and uninteresting. It wouldn't make a good feature in my opinion. — Ngamer01 18:04, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
Well, can we feature it the week after Ween instead? And Ngamer, I completely disagree. I'll draft a write-up soon. RickTommy (edits) 23:53, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
We generally do two features for Halloween, and I don't see why that should be changed this year just to accommodate one user's desires. Heimstern Läufer 00:36, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
Well, let me just say that it was that same user who suggested Bad Graphics Ghost in the first place. If he - that is to say, I - hadn't suggested BGG, would it still have been put in the queue for the week before 'Ween? RickTommy (edits) 02:51, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
I don't see how that matters. The source of the suggestion is irrelevant here; only what the community decides to do with those suggestions matters. Heimstern Läufer 04:14, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
I also agree. I see no reason to change our methods here. Typical functioning in the world is that leading up to a holiday, as well as the holiday itself, is the holiday season. Once the holiday is over, no one cares about the holiday anymore until next year, and have already moved on to the next holiday. I mean, on November 5th, will you still be adding more skeletons, jack-o-lanterns, and witches brüe to your house decorations, or will you begin taking them down and replacing them with turkeys, pilgrim hats, and those fruit-filled horn thingies? If the former, I will gladly send you a calendar, because it seems you are in dire need of one. If the latter, then consider the fact that what you are suggesting is the wiki equivalent of putting up your spooky decorations almost a week after halloween. — Defender1031*Talk 12:14, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
