[edit] Dangeresque Roomisode 1: Behind the Dangerdesque

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2011, week 11 (Mar 14–20)

A game that I think would make a great feature. RickTommy (edits) 22:40, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Excellent, excellent article. Also, not a half-bad game, either. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 08:06, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
I agree with the above. doctorwho295 25 February 2011
Me too! PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie 02:09, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
It's getting close to crunch time on this one; someone needs to do a writeup. I would do it, but I've never played this part of the game. As an alternative, if an article in the discussions below has a consensus to be featured and it would be easier to do a writeup for that article instead of this article (thus giving us more time to do a proper writeup for this article), then by all means move it ahead of this article in the queue. I think that would be preferable to rerunning an old article. — It's dot com 04:37, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Blue Laser Commander

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2011, week 12 (Mar 21–27)

An article that once came close to being featured. RickTommy (edits) 02:22, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Seems ok. Why was it rejected back then? --93.207.86.183 10:56, 6 March 2011 (UTC) (That Anonny Guy)
LET US FEATURE IT, WITH MASSIVE CELEBRATION OF THE DAY I ATE A PANCAKE Sure, go right ahead. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie 13:25, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] HomestarRunner.com PAY PLUS!

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2011, week 13 (Mar 28–Apr 3)

Note: This article is locked into the week of April Fools' (April 1). Adjustments (if any) to the order of other articles in the queue should take this into account.

So far, we've only featured one April Fools' article that is directly related to the holiday, so how about April Fool's 2006? RickTommy (edits) 04:02, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

The major problem I have with this is the lack of information for an introduction. There's no information besides fun facts, and the only real way we can do one is put a bunch of fun facts together. Maybe HomestarRunner.com PAY PLUS! instead? doctorwho295 10 February 2011
I think Payplus would work well. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie 16:34, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

[edit] bottom 10

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2011, week 14 (Apr 4–10)

An e-mail that is definitely worthy of being featured. RickTommy (edits) 09:28, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Why? If you don't list a reason, then this page isn't any better than the featured article nominations page, which for some reason still exists. — It's dot com 20:52, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Well, it has plenty of information, it's one of the most popular Sbemails on the site and has lots of real world references. Those are several reasons why. I support nomination. doctorwho295 4 March 2011
I never said it would be a bad choice; rather, I was wanting an answer from RickTommy. If he's going to monopolize the nomination process, then he should do a better job giving reasons why an article should be featured. — It's dot com 21:43, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Yes. ^And yes. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie 13:27, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Also agree with featuring it. In addition to other good reasons given, it's significant as the origin of the Horrible Painting. Heimstern Läufer 14:22, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Strongest Man in the World

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2011, week 15 (Apr 11–17)

The only one of the "older" Big Toons that has not yet been featured. RickTommy (edits) 02:17, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Seriously, it hasn't? I say, go for it! --93.207.85.97 13:16, 30 December 2010 (UTC) (That Anonny Guy)
Yeah, I agree with everything above. Definitely a worthy article on almost all fronts. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 08:06, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Pistols for Pandas

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2011, week 16 (Apr 18–24)

Note: This article is locked into the week of Earth Day (April 22). Adjustments (if any) to the order of other articles in the queue should take this into account.

We haven't featured an Easter-themed article yet (it had to be called off last year due to Easter coinciding with April Fools'), so how about Eggs (toon)? RickTommy (edits) 04:02, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

No, in that one, TBC specifically point out how bad it is. Quoting DF a few days ago, "FA is supposed to be our best stuff." Right now it looks like the only other option is Rotten Eggs, which is less bad, but also, since Easter this year is a full month later than it was in the year rotteneggs came out, that toon is able to reference college basketball (albeit subtly), which won't be at the front of ppl's minds this late in april.
On a different note, that week is also the same as Earth Day. We could feature Pistols for Pandas. Yeah, that's my vote for that week The Knights Who Say Ni 05:06, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, I like the Earth Day idea. The toon is popular, inspired a Store item, and expanded on a character. doctorwho295 10 February 2011
Earth Day is fine, I guess, but if you want an Easter Feature, why not use Eggs (the running gag, not the toon)? --93.207.86.183 10:56, 6 March 2011 (UTC) (That Anonny Guy)
P4P sounds fine to me. As for Eggs the running gag, that's not really very Easter-themed, so I think the Earth Day idea is better. Heimstern Läufer 11:30, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Bad Sings

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2011, week 17 (Apr 25–May 1)

How about Strong Bad Sings instead? RickTommy (edits) 01:06, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

If you're talking about the toon, that's too short to work. If you're talking about the CD, we already did that. I'm all for featuring Credenza. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie
For once, RickTommy, actually focus on what is already suggested instead of hogging the spotlight. --Kingdom Stars 02:24, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
Of course I'm talking about the toon. And I don't think it's too short to work. One, it is one of the earliest toons on the site, and two, it was the inspiration for the CD. RickTommy (edits) 06:28, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Length has nothing to do with an article's featurability. In this case, I see no reason as to why this article shouldn't be featured, and a few compelling reasons it should. It did spawn the title of the only audio CD released by TBC, several song titles were used on said CD, and it's one of the first uses of the Casio Keyboard. It's written quite well, to boot. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 08:06, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
I agree with the above. doctorwho295 21 February 2011

[edit] A Mother's Day Message

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2011, week 18 (May 2–8)

Note: This article is locked into the week of Mother's Day (May 8). Adjustments (if any) to the order of other articles in the queue should take this into account.

A Mother's Day Message. RickTommy (edits) 09:28, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

This was originally submitted with the heading "Week of Mother's Day (May 2-8)", which I don't think is appropriate. A Mother's Day Message needs to be considered on its own merits, and as part of that discussion we can choose to feature it on that particular week if we like, but if it isn't approved on its own merits, there's nothing else that would fit the category of "Week of Mother's Day". — It's dot com 20:52, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
I like the idea of the article. It has enough information to be included and has no real problems. In terms of its time placing, I would have it on the week after Mother's Day, to celebrate it's tenth anniversary. doctorwho295 4 March 2011
Personally, I love this toon. I quote it to my mom every freakin' Mother's Day. I'd love to have it featured, and ideally on Mother's Day. Heimstern Läufer 23:44, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm all for featuring it on Mothers Day. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie 02:38, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] fan club

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2011, week 19 (May 9–15)

"Suddenly, an eight-foot sub sandwich constrictor engsmsploded out of nowhere!" Nuff said! :D --93.207.86.183 10:56, 6 March 2011 (UTC) (That Anonny Guy)

A really funny email, and one that's quite relevant to us a fansite. I support, but please, when we feature it, no one traipse in naked as a jaybird. Heimstern Läufer 14:24, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
I support. Fine, Heimstern, I'll just eat all them Twizzlers instead. For you. doctorwho295 11 March 2011
Be my guest. I dun like Tweezlérs. Heimstern Läufer 09:46, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Death

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2011, week 20 (May 16–22)

Another article that is both popular and frequently edited. RickTommy (edits) 00:45, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

It is mostly a list of incidences, but it also provides plenty of information and is one of the biggest pages on the site. I approve nomination. doctorwho295 00:21, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
If that was the only way to make sure this article got featured (wait until everyone is caught off-guard at how fast the time was passing, then sneak this in at the last minute), props. (or that's what it looked like to me.) I probably would have detracted from featuring this article as it is a morose topic, but if it's already on the main page, i'm not going to ask for a change. The Knights Who Say Ni 20:57, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
As much as I supported the article, I do agree with the above, there should be at least two or three people supporting an article, and someone looking it over before an article is featured. doctorwho295 00:04, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
The way I see it, discussion totally died down the past few weeks. So what else should have been featured? I think Death is a cool article to get the honour. Now to find the next one. --93.207.89.92 14:08, 19 May 2011 (UTC) (That Anonny Guy)
