Floppy Disk Container?

Anybody mind if we do the Floppy Disk Container for week 26? Thunderbird 00:36, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

What about Minor Teen Girl Squad Characters for this week? Thunderbird 00:36, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)
How would we do this? —FireBird|Talk 00:40, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Simple, just write a brand new paragraph or two about Minor Teen Girl Squad Characters, and link it to the bigger page. Same sort of way of doing Floppy disk container, I'm still trying to figure out what to write, but I'm sure something'll come to me... Thunderbird 00:59, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)
The paragraph that is displayed on the Main Page should be the intro paragraph from the article. See the previous featured articles for examples. If an article one thinks should be featured doesn't have a good intro, then they could certainly write one and include it in the article. Part of the idea of having featured articles is that people will want to improve current articles to bring them up to "featured status" or something like that. -- Tom 02:43, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Quite true. So basically, if the potential article doesn't have a good enough intro, we could just write one for the featured summary, and then add it to the page as well, then it would be all set, right? Basically what I'm wondering is if my paragraph for the Floppy Disk Container is *almost* good enough. Thunderbird 06:20, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, exactly. And once we come up with other requirements, people can strive to improve articles to that standard as well. That's really what it's about, not just having something nice for the Main Page. Check out Wikipedia's requirements for ideas, but keep in mind that we aren't Wikipedia and can make up something slightly different that fits our needs. -- Tom
Okay, are we doing this or not? --ColorPrinter 22:42, 2 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Howzabout Strong Bad's Message Bored for this week? —FireBird|Talk 17:51, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I also wouldn't be against leaving Floppy Disk Container for another week. Since it really didn't get much of a week... -- Tom 12:02, 1 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Well, it's week 27, and there's a blank gap on the Main Page. We need to have something! «Rob» 02:53, 4 Jul 2005 (UTC)
So, week 27 became Bubs' Concession Stand. I think Strong Bad's Message Bored would be an okay choice. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 19:26, 6 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I hope you don't mind, but because Monday was fast approaching and it wasn't being written, I wrote the article about Strong Bad's Message Bored. -BazookaJoe 00:10, 11 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] HRWiki:Featured article for 2005, week 29

I nominate Stinkoman 20X6 Enemies and Items. I just love those little sprites. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 19:26, 6 Jul 2005 (UTC)
The Paper wanted Teen Girl Squad. I don't think that would be a bad idea. -BazookaJoe 00:10, 11 Jul 2005 (UTC)
The Cheat has my vote. Meh! Rogue Leader / (my talk)
I think 20X6 would be good choice. —FireBird|Talk 15:05, 11 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I nominate tape-legDothedoodoo
Well, I'm back from vacation. And given the nominations for this spot, my reccomondation would be to give it to 20X6, Leave Teen Girl Sqaud for a week or two, and wait until Stinkoman 20X6 has run it's course before giving it top spot. Any other suggestions anyone, or would we be happy with 20X6? Thunderbird 20:31, 15 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Sounds good to me... Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 21:04, 15 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Okay, it's in. How's the length looking? Too long? Thunderbird 08:23, 16 Jul 2005 (UTC)
A bit too long. You can trim off the the whole time capsule example, and {this will be debatable} the speculation about Coach Z, The Cheat, and The Poopsmith. (I forgot to tell you about the good points: expertly crafted and handed in before the due date!) —BazookaJoe 14:37, 16 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I just tried it with a quick preview on the front page and it is a bit long. BazookaJoe's recommendation seems the best course of action. I'm removing the third paragraph now. -- Tom 16:28, 16 Jul 2005 (UTC)
