[edit] HRWiki:Featured article for 2007, week 11 (Mar 12-18)

If we're continuing the Stinkoman patten all year, then I say The Homestar Runner should be next. --Trogga 15:27, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

If we're continuing the Stinkoman pattern all year, then wouldn't Pan Pan be next? and The Homestar Runner be set for January of 2008? Thunderbird 07:37, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
Well, there aren't many notable 20X6 characters, so I say we do any main character variation each month this year. But I'm fine with either The Homestar Runner or Pan Pan for March. --Trogga 21:15, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
If we do Pan Pan this week, it will be only two weeks after 1-Up. Seems a bit soon to me. Heimstern Läufer 20:23, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
Ah, I misunderstood what you meant. Come to think of it, I wouldn't mind doing a year of Strong Bad alter-egos. Those pages all have a decent ammount of content and are distinctively different. We could cycle through on a monthly basis such articles as Strong Badman, Sterrence and Old-Timey Strong Bad. Thunderbird 04:30, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
As I've suggested above, I'm not in favor of this idea. I think focusing on SB variations alone puts too much focus on one character. Re:This week: I think we should look in the direction of something not character related, since we will be featuring a character in week 9. Heimstern Läufer 21:22, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
We haven't featured a running gag in a while... maybe Aliases Used in Prank Calls? Heimstern Läufer 23:11, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
Sounds like a good idea to me — especially since the last release was an Answering Machine. Trey56 16:38, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes. I agree also. It looks like we're running out of time. Anybody else? --TheYellowDart(t/c) 22:39, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
There's really no time left for speculation. We should use that! — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 18:43, 11 March 2007

[edit] HRWiki:Featured article for 2007, week 12 (Mar 19-25)

I suggest we use Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon. This is the week it came out and it was a very funny cartoon in my oppinion. --Dacheatbot · Communicate 01:19, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

That's an OK idea, but I wanna see an Answering Machine featured for once. Maybe Version 9.2? --Trogga 17:34, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
Seeing that Aliases Used in Prank Calls was just chosen as this week's (or last week's) FA, let's feature something non-MAM related next instead. Maybe Sweet Cuppin' Cakes? --Trogga 02:06, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
I support Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon. I also think that all the Big Toons should be featured at some point. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 09:04, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
Pan Pan is also a good idea, if we're still doing a character every month. --Trogga 00:28, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Still a bit too recently after 1-Up, to my mind. I'm all for Stark Schlecht ist im Gefängnis. Heimstern Läufer 00:32, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
It's almost time to post the next article. Any last-minute votes? — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 13:39, 18 March 2007
Sure, SBIIJC will work. —BazookaJoe 20:44, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
Ahh, crap! I just noticed that the DVD commentary isn't even started. I guess that forces me to do that tonight. —BazookaJoe 20:46, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

[edit] HRWiki:Featured article for 2007, week 13 (Mar 26-Apr 1)

The King of Town's Castle or House of the Brothers Strong, anyone? --Trogga 15:27, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

I like House of the Brothers Strong. It's more organized, is seen more often on the site and is probably more important in the H*R universe. Not that I don't like the Castle, I just think that the House should be featured first. Has Matt? (talk) 13:40, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, of the two, the Brothers' House article is closer to being ready to be featured. More info and more central to the Homestar Runner universe. Trey56 16:43, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
Out of the main places (see the Places page), The Stick is the only one not featured, and for a good reason: If have hardly any info in it! I'm starting a talk there for people to add more info. If it's ready in two weeks time, then let's feature it. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 09:09, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
I'm not seeing that The Stick has been made ready for featuring. I'm thinking House of the Brothers Strong would work well. Heimstern Läufer 07:13, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

[edit] HRWiki:Featured article for 2007, week 14 (Apr 2-8)

I don't think we've featured a sbemail yet this year. Maybe rock opera? --Trogga 15:27, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Depending on the regularity of Strong Bad Emails, it is slightly possible that it might be almost time for email #173 by this time. It might not be until May or June though, or even later. In any case, I would like to see montage appropriately setup for the featured Strong Bad email of the spring, and used the week after the release of email #171 or so, just so that we're not left behind schedule if TBC decide to begin #173 an email early, and continue into another email story arc. That way we'll bring to light the long ago prophecy of The Paper's retirement to those who may have been unaware or forgotten it. I bring this up so we don't have rock opera and montage featured right near each other. Thunderbird 07:48, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
Well, why don't we wait this one out a bit and see where we are by mid-March or so; i.e., what number of sbemails we're at by then. Then we can make a better-informed decision. Heimstern Läufer 20:25, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
After last week's MAM and the KOT VOQPCS the week before, I think we're safe to wait this one out a bit more. If we get sbemails from here on out, we'll be at 171 by this point. Maybe this week we could feature Pan Pan, as some have suggested? Heimstern Läufer 00:39, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Still too soon for a 20X6 character. How about a 1936 Old-Timey? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 22:57, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
Why do that when we haven't finished 20X6? (If indeed we want to feature Pan Pan at all, which we may not.) Heimstern Läufer 16:08, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
Like I said before, there aren't many notable 20X6 characters. --Trogga 02:07, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Is this debate still active? We're coming all up on the end of the week, but it doesn't seem like anything's been decided yet.
Anyway, I would agree that we should feature a 20X6 character, but it seems to soon considering there was a 7-week gap between Stinkoman and 1-Up, while if we featured another 20X6 character now, there would only be a 5-week gap. I vote for an Old-Timey character, specifically The Sneak. — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 16:28, 31 March 2007
I'm neutral. People need to sing to the same chord quick, or we're keeping last week's featured article on the main page for the time being. Or at least until someone chooses an article by themself. Or at least until I choose an article by myself. Please don't make me do that. Pan Pan or The Sneak? Tell what U think. —BazookaJoe 23:24, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

I'll go with the Sneak. Sam already fixed up the article a little bit, so it's a perfect candidate. Bluebry 23:26, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

I like that idea (The Sneak) — although I don't follow FAS enough to know how important the continuity of the 20X6 character featuring is. Trey56 23:28, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
I don't like making the length of the article a big factor, but seriously, The Sneak is only a paragraph long. The entirety of the article would probably be on the Main Page. That doesn't seem good to me. Pan Pan isn't that great either, but at least it would require the reader to click on the link to read the whole thing. Has Matt? (talk)
True, but I think only half of that would go on the main page. Bluebry 23:37, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Half of what? The Sneak? If only half of that goes on the Main Page, it would be too short. Has Matt? (talk)
I've gone ahead and set up The Sneak, even though I disagree with featuring it (Like Has Matt?, I think it is too short for a featured article). If anyone could expand the article, it would really help. Thanks. Heimstern Läufer 23:43, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Well, if you believe Pan Pan would be better, I'm okay with that. TO be honest, We really do need to decide, and it's better to have it on one side than a tie. So, I'm okay with Pan Pan. Bluebry 23:48, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Now that we got the discussion going again, I can see that The Sneak is not a very good choice at its current length. Pan Pan seems hhhaaallllright. —BazookaJoe 23:52, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
After seeing Joe's edit, I have taken the liberty of changing it to Pan Pan. Enjoy. Bluebry 23:54, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Okay, Pan Pan's got a lot more info, and it's interesting, and it's 11:58 PM. Let's stay with it! Trey56 23:59, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] HRWiki:Featured article for 2007, week 15 (Apr 9-15)

Hey, how about Don and Harriet Chapman? He did die this time last year. Lest we forget... TheYellowDart(t/c)

I don't think that's a good idea. The death of the TBC's father is essentially a family issue, and I don't think it's our position to make a memorial on the anniversary of this event. Heimstern Läufer 06:10, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
Do you have any better ideas? What's wrong with remembering him? MAy his legacy last forever... like Steve Irwin! TheYellowDart(t/c)
Nothing's wrong with remembering him. But it's a little intrusive to put up a memorial-esque FA of him, as Heimstern said. Especially since they never even announced this officially. It's going to be a tough week for the family, and we shouldn't be showcasing it this week no matter how nice we make it look. —BazookaJoe 01:28, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
I agree, that's not the best idea. And I DO have a better idea! What about {fanfare} Cool Tapes!...? Bluebry 01:33, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Cool Tapes sounds better. Sure. But wouldn't that be better for August? TheYellowDart(t/c)
Just making sure: We're talking about the band, right? Not the toon, which is called Cool Things (and has already been featured)? Heimstern Läufer 05:15, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, the band. And also, Theyellowdart, we don't HAVE to feature things around the time they were released. (I assume by August, you meant Cool Tapes first appearance ;-)) Bluebry 05:58, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
Cool Tapes seems... a little on the short side. Maybe DaVinci's Notebook (which has just been greatly expanded) instead? --Trogga 20:09, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
That is something that most people don't know about. And that article has a good amount of content. I say we do it. --Dacheatbot · Communicate 23:46, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
Yeah... I guess... It does have much more content that Cool Tapes. Bluebry 15:11, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
Hm, I dunno: it's just that Da Vinci's notebook has only contributed to one toon. But in the vein of contributors, what about someone like Craig Zobel? He even helped direct some of the toons, which a lot of people might not know. As a side note, I think that Contributors could make a great featured article someday, but right now it's too much of a list. Trey56 17:03, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
Coach Z seems a little on the short side. --Trogga 19:31, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
Craig Zobel (Assuming by Coach Z you mean Craig Zobel)? Nah, it's a good length. Like that fish I totally caught that was like 20 feet. But, uh, while it seems to be a good medium length article, DaVinci's Notebook seems to be a really good article for some sort of feature. Bluebry 01:13, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
OK, it's crunch the contenders are DaVinci's Notebook, Cool Tapes, and possibly...Craig Zobel? Which shall it be then since it's now time to decide. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 00:55, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
I almost forgot DaVinci's Notebook even existed. I say to go with that one. It's something many people probably don't know about. Has Matt? (talk) 00:55, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
I'd say Cool Tapes, but I can live with DV's Notebook as well... --TheYellowDart(t/c) 01:07, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] HRWiki:Featured article for 2007, week 16 (Apr 16-22)

Now that this week's FA is finally out of the way, I'm going to suggest Cool Tapes for next week. Has Matt? (talk) 01:30, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

I think it's a good article. Well written, okay organizing, and good length. Yeah, let's do it. Bluebry 16:40, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] HRWiki:Featured article for 2007, week 17 (Apr 23-29)

Wow, no one has proposed anything on this yet? How about Physiology of The Cheat? ¤ The Dang, Pom Pom, you see that? That's a nice golbol. Talk to me. 17:06, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, interesting article, and obscure... might work, though it looks to me like it would need some cleanup. Heimstern Läufer 02:04, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
Physiology of The Cheat is pretty good, but a lot of it is just speculation. It is really interesting, though. I never get tired of reading that kind of stuff. Just throwing an idea out here for yous guys to comment on: Action Cool 5. Has Matt? (talk) 02:07, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
I was actually surprised how much of Physiology article wasn't speculation, but rather a detailed exposition of the sketch from big white face. I've removed a few sections that were more speculatory, though. I'm not sold on the idea of featuring that article, but it's still a thought. Action Cool 5 could probably be good, too. Heimstern Läufer 00:02, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
I like what you did with that article. Now it's still really interesting, but with much less speculation. I would feel pretty comfortable with making that our featured article. Anyone else want to contribute their thoughts? Has Matt? (talk) 00:08, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
As interesting as it is, methinks it needs a reword or two. I might do it myself, I might watch X-Play. Who knows? But, seriously, methinks we can do Action Cool 5 well. Bluebry 19:40, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
I like the idea of the Physiology article — I think it's more interesting than the Action Cool 5 article. Trey56 19:42, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
Agree with the The Cheat article. --DorianGray 19:49, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] HRWiki:Featured article for 2007, week 18 (Apr 30-May 6)

Fhqwhgads, perhaps? Heimstern Läufer 02:27, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Sounds good to me — it has a lot of components that a featured article should:
  • Importance to the Homestar Runner body of work
  • Good length
  • Hasn't been featured yet
Trey56 13:07, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
Yeh, I'm okay with it. 'Tis all of those things Trey said... and maybe more... So, I have no objections whatsoever. Bluebry 02:10, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
  • I like Fhqwhgads and think that it should deserve it. Whatever Trey56 said is what I think. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

[edit] HRWiki:Featured article for 2007, week 19 (May 7-13)

Since we've featured all the 20X6 characters that could reasonably be featured, perhaps The Homestar Runner? Heimstern Läufer 02:17, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

It would be cool if it was a little bit longer, but he is of central importance to the Old-Timey cartoons. Maybe tomorrow I'll see if I could add some more info about The Homestar Runner. For now, I'm neutral. Has Matt? (talk) 02:26, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
Wow! I'm surprised Trogador isn't a featured aricle. I propose we use Trogador. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:54, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
That article is pretty brief, looks a bit too short for an FA. Heimstern Läufer 23:04, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
Wow! I'm also surprised that Podstar Runner isn't a featured article. Anybody agree? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
Ooh, you're right! That would make a great featured article. Trey56 11:49, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
Umm, it appears there's been an oversight. Podstar actually has been featured. Someone forgot to tag it as such, though. So yeah, good idea, but already done. Heimstern Läufer 15:31, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
Well, all my ideas were rejected or they already exist, but what about Nebulon. He hasn't been featured yet. I propose The Green Alien Nebulon. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
Reading the above suggestions, it looks to me like The Homestar Runner is the best choice, with Nebulon coming in at a close second. The Homestar Runner is a more significant character, so I move for his article to be featured this week. Trey56 06:06, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
I'd like to see an Old-Timey character featured. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 08:51, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
I think The Homestar Runner now has enough content to be a good featured article. Has Matt? (talk) 12:23, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] HRWiki:Featured article for 2007, week 20 (May 14-20)

How about Marshmallow's Last Stand (place) since we already have the toon as a featured article. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Cheerleader, because she was on the everybody, everybody poster. Those should come first. -- Lazylaces Talk 00:37, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
I could go with Cheerleader. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
I'll third Cheerleader. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 09:56, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
Wow. Cheerleader IS a good long article. I like it :) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 08:47, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
WHOA. This is one of the few GOOD articles I've seen suggested EVER. The others are like: "Homestar is a person in He has a hat and a shirt/skirt. I is unknown as to whether it is a shirt or skirt, but Strong Bad has sarcastically said it's a skirt, so it must be a skirt. He is now going to go to the store."
I could go on, and on, and on. Then get lunch. Then go on some more. And then I'm done. So, yeah, Cheerleaders a good long article. I'm all for it. Bluebry 17:32, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
I could go with Cheerleader but what about Nebulon. Anybody?...Zombies?... Jelly? Note: If you don't think so then I'm fine with it
I'm not a huge fan of featuring a character immediately after feature another character. Heimstern Läufer 00:38, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
Wow... I didn't actually think it would get that far. I feel... Honored? -- Lazylaces Talk 01:28, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
