HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 21 (May 24-30)

Missy Palmer? RickTommy talk 01:52, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Missy Palmer's important to H*R, but that article's seriously lacking in content. At present, it wouldn't work for a weeklong feature. Heimstern Läufer 07:50, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Lookin at a Thing in a Bag? PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

We were talking before about putting Sterrance here if we featured Parsnips-A-Plenty the week before. Since it appears we're doing Sterrance the week before instead, let's move Parsnips-A-Plenty here. Heimstern Läufer 23:45, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Based on last week's and this week's discussion, I've written the feature for Parsnips-A-Plenty. We can feature Lookin at a Thing in a Bag at a later date. --Stux 19:24, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 22 (May 31-Jun 6)

How about a Videlectrix game? We have available: Secret Collect, Rhino Feeder, Thy Dungeonman, Population: Tire, Pigs on Head, Thy Dungeonman 2, 50K Racewalker, Duck Guardian One, and Thy Dungeonman 3. RickTommy talk 01:52, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Based on the ones listed here, I would say Population: Tire is probably the best bet. MHarrington 05:10, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
I'd pick one of the Thy Dungeonman games.
Either Pop Tire or a Dungeonman game would probably be good choices. Can't decide which I prefer at this point. Heimstern Läufer 08:06, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
I always thought Retro Gaming Character Variations was an interesting article. But out of the games, I think Thy Dungeonman games have more information. Rondleman! Stuff I did.Talk. 00:55, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
So which will it be? It's almost time.
Well, two of us are going for one of the Thy Dungeonman games, and two of us aree going for Pop Tire. I guess you're gonna be the deciding vote. -- 02:23, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 23 (Jun 7-13)

For this week, how about the jibblies? MHarrington 05:16, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Jibblies seems like a good choice. -- 02:29, 29 May 2010 (UTC)jibbliejibbliejibblejibblejibbliejibbliejibblie
I dunno, while not completely centered on Halloween, I think jibblies would be a good FA around, say, October. StrongAwesome 02:31, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 24 (Jun 14-20)

For this week, how about Strong Bad's Computer Malfunctioning? We could have the intro and all the little descriptions after it, sort of like that article on characters lacking certain body parts. MHarrington 18:45, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

That could work, although I'd prefer The Virus. -- 02:29, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 25 (Jun 21-27)

How about The Reddest Radish? RickTommy (edits) 00:20, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

While this is (once again) over the limit of ten, there doesn't seem to be a clear consensus in some of the nominations above. Why not contribute your opinion there first instead of adding more weeks? StrongAwesome 00:53, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

I agree with Strong Awesome in that you should discus other things before bringing up something else. On a more related note, I don't really like the idea of featuring Reddish Raddish, but I don't know what we could replace it with. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

I came up with something: 404'd. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie
Nevermind. That needs expansion. How abut Homestar Ruiner? PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie
If we were to do individual SBCG4AP episodes, they should be done in increments at a time. Instead, might I propose something that had been proposed before, but got bumped off by something else: Sterrance, but not Da Huuuuuuuudge, since the former appeared more often than the latter, and it was the one SB claimed to have gotten right. MHarrington 15:39, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Sterrance sounds good. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

Since we just did Sterrance, how about Basement of The Brothers Strong? PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 26 (Jun 28-Jul 4)

Cardboard Marzipan? RickTommy (edits) 10:44, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

What did the man say to you above? --Essence of Ghost Water 12:20, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
At this point, we're exactly 10 weeks out, so he's OK this time. Heimstern Läufer 12:21, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Oh. Anyhow, Cardboard Mazipan is a good choice. It's certainly better than Cardboard Homestar. --Essence of Ghost Water 12:24, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
While Heim's right and he's ok within the 10-week limit, RickTommy, why don't you give others a chance to make initial suggestions during the new few FA weeks for a change? There is no need to rush the FA process and you should give others a chance to weigh in their suggestions without them feeling rushed or like they need to follow a specific topic. Thanks. --Stux 18:08, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 27 (Jul 5-11)

New Paper? RickTommy (edits) 02:43, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Can We do Lookin' At a Thing In a Bag now? PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie
Umm, what about my idea instead? And besides, you could move this suggestion to Aug 2-8. RickTommy (edits) 13:17, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
Your idea totally ignored the repeated messages to your talk page. — Defender1031*Talk 13:20, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
New Paper is sloppy and not written well. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 28 (Jul 12-18)

Li'l Brudder? RickTommy (edits) 00:06, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Spotlight hogger. :P That aside, Lil Brudder is a good idea. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

I agree. Yeah, not much to say. -- 02:29, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 29 (Jul 19-25)

We usually feature a Sbemail around this time. How about either rock opera, bottom 10, your friends, death metal, or different town? RickTommy (edits) 00:17, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

You know, there's not much consensus on anything else. If you're so eager to get things done, I request you help with the others before you throw something else out.

Yeah, we could do bottom 10. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

And we need to keep this list below ten. And let someone else come up with an idea sometimes, please! MHarrington 15:30, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 30 (Jul 26-Aug 1)

It does end on August 2nd, right? Anyways, how about Everybody to the Limit? PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

That'd be a good one. MHarrington
Good. Also, I beat RickTommy. :D PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie
No, July has 31 days. The week ends on August 1. The Knights Who Say Ni 15:22, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
Ah. Thanks for clearing that up for me. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

HRwiki:Featured article for 2010, week 31 (Aug 2-8)

I'd like to go with a pseudocharacter for this week. Wormdingler seems like a good choice, but Credenza would work too. -- 12:44, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
