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.

Sickly Sam

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 21 (May 21–27)

It's been a while since we've featured something Old-Timey-related. RickTommy (edits) 10:27, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

It's a good idea! -- Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:19, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
Guess I'll unstall this and say I support this for a future FA. — Ngamer01 16:59, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

Super NES

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 22 (May 28–Jun 3)

Well, it was the first-ever H*R animation. RickTommy (edits) 00:40, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

There is a draft here, though the writeup needs some trimming. I'm in support for this. — Ngamer01 13:44, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
I agree with ngamer. This is a fine feature. — Defender1031*Talk 18:16, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

flag day

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 24 (Jun 11–17)

Week of Flag Day (Jun 11-17)

flag day. RickTommy (edits) 06:18, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

I'll support this. — Ngamer01 18:01, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
This works. — Defender1031*Talk 11:21, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
I'm cool with featuring this too. --Stux 17:16, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Breakfast Cereal

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 25 (Jun 18–24)

It has a long enough intro, starts with a quote from an interview, and is important to the TBC; what more could you want? RickTommy (edits) <08:12, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

draft -- Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:19, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
Can you trim that draft down to a more reasonable size. We aren't trying to shove whole articles in FAs. =P — Ngamer01 13:44, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I've done so. RickTommy (edits) 14:06, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
Better. I'll support this. Do note that Gfdgs never gave a vote for/against, so this can't be put in the FA queue yet, Rick. — Ngamer01 14:05, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
This would be a decent feature, i guess. — Defender1031*Talk 11:21, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

The Interview

To do HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 26 (Jun 25–Jul 1)

It's one of the oldest toons that hasn't been featured yet. RickTommy (edits) 07:17, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

A classic. I'm actually rather surprised that it hasn't been featured yet. This, for a change, is a good suggestion. — Defender1031*Talk 11:10, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Agreed. Count me in supporting this. — Ngamer01 18:13, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Bad Graphics Ghost

To do 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.

FAQ

An important page on the site. RickTommy (edits) 01:16, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Can we manage a writeup of this? There's no prose introduction to speak of, so it'd have to be some sort of summary. I'm not at all sure you'd be able to get enough content out of the FAQ page to make a proper main page writeup. Heimstern Läufer 03:23, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
I think we'll be able to do an introduction of this. I support nomination. doctorwho295 21 February 2011
I missed that this page had been "slated" to feature this week despite inadequate consensus for featuring. There is reasonable question whether there enough material to feature. This cannot be featured until an adequately-long FA has been made. I'd suggest writing one to show that there is and then featuring it on a different week. --Stux 13:40, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
I made a big draft of the FA. Click hear! -- Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:19, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
And a good thing it's big, too. It addresses the concerns about the article being difficult to make a write-up out of. RickTommy (edits) 06:18, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
A proper sized writeup is good to reach, but I don't think FAQ is interesting enough for a feature. — Ngamer01 18:01, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
I agree with ngamer. Really not very interesting. — Defender1031*Talk 11:21, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Legal

An important page, since it can be accessed from the Navbar. RickTommy (edits) 09:09, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

I don't think this has enough content to feature. --Stux 14:00, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Correction: The wiki page has too much content to feature. Here is proof! -- Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:19, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
You may want to trim that writeup down. We want to give viewers a small sample of what the article is about. Not shove an entire article on the front page. =P — Ngamer01 13:44, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I've done so. RickTommy (edits) 14:06, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
Now the question remains is that is Legal interesting enough for a feature? I'm leaning toward no myself. — Ngamer01 14:05, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
I agree with NGamer, the FA article draft pretty much just relays 90% of the page content. There just really isn't enough in this page to make a good FA out of it. --Stux 14:50, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
Correction: it had 90% of the page content before it was shortened. RickTommy (edits) 07:17, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Whether the writeup is the majority of the page content or not, I just don't think a page with a bunch of legal stuff is worth featuring. The only thing interesting that happens is homestar saying "bo-wing" which pretty much sums up what it would be like to feature it. — Defender1031*Talk 11:21, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

The Announcer

An important minor character. RickTommy (edits) 03:19, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Yes he is important. I scribbled down a draft here. -- Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:19, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
That draft is the entire article, and it's got grammatical errors and NPOV issues to boot. — Defender1031*Talk 18:16, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
You mean the entire intro of the article, and what are the errors and issues, exactly? RickTommy (edits) 13:05, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
No, i mean the entire article. The character evolution section doesn't count, as those tend to be separate pages for the more common characters. It's only part of the article for him since he's not big enough to have a series of pages devoted to him, and his appearance has evolved a lot. As for the issues, "rarely actually", "we know little of him", etc. I corrected as much as I could in the main article, but I still don't think it's worth featuring. — Defender1031*Talk 11:21, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Not the 100th Email

As teasers to milestone e-mails, I believe that one of them should be featured. 124.181.68.22 13:17, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

I'd say Not the 100th Email. RickTommy (edits) 07:20, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Start with the first one, makes sense. Although it is very short. --93.207.87.212 08:32, 11 October 2010 (UTC) (That Anonny Guy)
Anon makes a good point. Not the 100th Email is rather short. Would we be able to expand that enough to make a quality write-up? DENNIS T/C 08:40, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
I've drafted a quality write-up: HRWiki:Featured Article Selection/Drafts#Not the 100th Email. RickTommy (edits) 06:46, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
THe proposed write up is far too flowery and just makes me go "uch". No. — Defender1031*Talk 00:05, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
I've trimmed it down a bit. RickTommy (edits) 13:05, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
I didn't say it was too long. I said it was flowery and made me go "uch". The stuff you removed were among the less objectionable parts of it in my opinion. — Defender1031*Talk 15:36, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Doreauxgard

Another important pseudo-character. (Man, I hate sounding repetitive.) RickTommy (edits) 06:46, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Here's a write-up that G-man drafted. RickTommy (edits) 07:17, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Important how? — Defender1031*Talk 11:21, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

The Cheat's Gold Tooth

How about featuring TC's tricked-out grill. -132.183.13.68 18:12, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Maybe. It's not that significant but it's long enough. Rondleman! Stuff I did.Talk. 01:28, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I think this is one of those articles that should be expanded a little before featuring. (Alternatively, if a writeup is made that expands on the topic, it can also be placed in the queue that way). --Stux 21:23, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
I've drafted an adequate write-up. (HRWiki:Featured Article Selection/Drafts#The Cheat's Gold Tooth) RickTommy (edits) 06:18, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
The writeup is long enough, but i don't think the topic is really all that interesting to feature. — Defender1031*Talk 18:21, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

Population: Tire

It's been quite some time since we've done a game. RickTommy (edits) 13:05, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

I don't think there's enough content to feature. — Defender1031*Talk 15:36, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

your friends (Jul 23-29)

We've featured a Sbemail around this time for the last couple of years. How about your friends, the first email for which I had drafted a write-up? RickTommy (edits) 13:05, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

I don't see any reason to stick to a pattern which has no basis aside from happenstance. — Defender1031*Talk 15:36, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Strong Bad Emails (daily feature)

Since our recent daily was done a very long time after the previous daily, I think that we should make up for it by doing another daily rrll rrll soon. My theme for this daily is Strong Bad Emails from the second half of the Tandy era. I go for these seven emails: little animal, CGNU, superhero name, gimmicks, weird dream, dullard, and vacation. I have drafted write-ups for all seven of them (see the drafts page). RickTommy (edits) 11:10, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

RickTommy - for at least the fourth time, "we're running out of featurable articles too fast to merit doing any dailies right now." I'd say we should wait until the chaps are back regularly for at least a year before we do another daily. The Knights Who Say Ni 17:11, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

video games

As the first H*R toon I ever saw, I'd like to see it featured sometime soon. RickTommy (edits) 13:30, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Meet Marshie

We've featured Malloween Commercial, so how about featuring the original? RickTommy (edits) 13:30, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

cliffhangers

We've featured the second and third parts of the Lappy-napped trilogy, so how about featuring the first? RickTommy (edits) 12:00, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
