Since I've agreed we should do Senorial Day for week 22, we should try again to feature this week what was originally intended for that week: [[Lack of Visible Body Parts]]. [[User:MHarrington|MHarrington]] 15:07, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

:::So, how were we planning to feature this? Was there some sort of plan to have a writeup, even though the introduction is very short?

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 27 (Jun 29-Jul 5)

I think it's time for another Old-Timey character. I'm thinking of either Fat Dudley, Old-Timey Bubs or Old-Timey Marzipan. MHarrington 22:51, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

This is the middle of the year, and because the page doesn't specify a release date, I think this week would be great for acknowledging the 10th anniversary of Marshmallow's Last Stand. As we don't know the date of release, the middle of the year gives us the best all round coverage of this significant subject. OpenSourceGreg 02:45, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
Unfortunately, however, Marshmallow's Last Stand was already given an article a long time ago. MHarrington 14:33, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, about 4 years ago... isn't that when the old wiki was around? I think that 4 yrs is long enough between repeats, and this is a VERY significant toon (like, the first full toon or something?). If not this, then we should do something RELATING to this. OpenSourceGreg 09:11, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
Nah, FAs started under the new wiki. As for repeating an FA, we've never done so in the past, and I'm disinclined to do so now, at least until we get to the point we really have very few new featurable articles. Heimstern Läufer 09:15, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
Shouldn't we expand the intro to fireworks and feature that for Independence Day? BBG 15:09, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
I don't live in the USA, and that thought never crossed my mind. Yeah, lets do it, or Happy Fireworks. Either one. OpenSourceGreg 14:20, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Happy Fireworks has already been featured. As for fireworks, find a way to expand the intro and we could definitely do that. Heimstern Läufer 23:36, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Is it long enough now or should it be expanded a little more? BBG 16:00, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I think so now. MHarrington 20:02, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
I concur. Good prize. Ding. Heimstern Läufer 14:26, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 28 (Jul 6-12)

I'd like to see one of my favourite toons that we still haven't featured get the spotlight this week: A Folky Tale. Heimstern Läufer 09:24, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

That'd be interesting, except we're running out of Big Toons to discuss. Maybe we should go easy in the future, huh? MHarrington 19:36, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
I think that's pretty much inevitable. We don't get big toons very often, so starting to exhaust them is pretty much guaranteed. Heck, we're doing better than we were a few months ago now, what with Kick-A-Ball having been released. Heimstern Läufer 00:58, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, maybe after they release a few more, whenever that happens? MHarrington 15:32, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
Ever since 2006, it feels like they either release 0 or 2 Big Toons every year. BBG 15:45, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
Which they have done ever since they started the website. Homestar-Winner (talk) 21:12, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
The years 2000 and 2005 had 3 Big Toons. BBG 21:34, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, now that SBemails are gone (maybe) and they've already made 2 toons this year, I'd say more big toons are on the way. Theycallmefree 22:14, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
I don't have a problem featuring Folky Tale. - 16:14, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
Nor do I. Theycallmefree 17:47, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Then I guess I don't either. But let's go easy on them in the future, okay? MHarrington 20:04, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Besides A Folky Tale, 9 Big Toons haven't got featured yet: Kick-a-Ball, Career Day, DNA Evidence, Strongest Man in the World, Shopping for Danger, Parsnips A-Plenty, Where's The Cheat?, The Reddest Radish, and In Search of the Yello Dello. Theycallmefree 20:26, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Make that ten with 2 Part Episode: Part 1, and if they don't merge part 2. And no, I am not going to keep updating this.Theycallmefree 11:03, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
Okay, we can do A Folky Tale, I guess. MHarrington 20:05, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 29 (Jul 13-19)

For this week, we need to do 50 emails. MHarrington 20:18, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

At the time this week comes around, it will have been about 3 months since we've featured an email (email thunder). It's a good idea, but many other articles that were good that got turned down by ones that were better (even ones that were suggested by you MHarrington) should be thought about for this week (SB's website, Crack Stuntman, etc.) Theycallmefree 20:29, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
Then how about Crack Stuntman? Of course, "50 emails" was once suggested but rejected, too. MHarrington 23:24, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
You're right, I forgot. Either one be's fine. Theycallmefree 00:00, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
So let's just do Crack Stuntman now and we'll do "50 emails" next week and Strong Bad's Website the week after. MHarrington 15:27, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
Looks like we're swapping this and Week 24 now, so Crimes Committed by Strong Bad is this week's featured article, and Stuntman will be featured 5 weeks ahead of "plan". free 11:04, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 30 (Jul 20-26)

I think we should try again to do 50 emails this week. MHarrington 15:30, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Well, no one's said anything for a while, so I'll go ahead and second it. Theycallmefree 20:16, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
More like, YOU feature 50 emails, NERD! Heimstern Läufer 14:28, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 31 (Jul 27-Aug 2)

As stated from the previous week, we now should feature Strong Bad's Website. MHarrington 15:50, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Actually, you stated it the week BEFORE the previous week. Seriously, though, it's a good idea. Theycallmefree 20:23, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 32 (Aug 3-9)

For this week, I was thinking of the Double Deuce. MHarrington 04:14, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

How about Doughnuts? It's had quite a bit of references, but the intro needs quite a bit of expansion. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 14:54, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
The intro is far too short, nor do I think that it could be expanded beyond what it has. We're looking for toons, characters or major themes of the site. While Doughnuts show up in a lot of unusual ways, I don't think it makes a good FA. wbwolf (t | ed) 15:07, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
Oh! I have a better one! First Time Here? is extremely important toon and gets constantly overlooked. It should be featured. wbwolf (t | ed) 15:12, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
First Time Here? seems like a good article. It's also VERY funny. " Dot Com!" Never gets old. free 20:16, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
And also, "Check me out! No, seriously, check me out." MHarrington 22:44, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 33 (Aug 10-16)

I still can't believe that G hasn't been featured yet. It's like, a healthy piece of real estate! --Darkangel Get offa me! 05:05, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

The big problem with the G article is it has very little prose and is mostly a list. It's a great theme, but it's not what a FA makes. wbwolf (t | ed) 05:52, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, and I'm not sure one could really expand it to the point it would be a good FA, though I'd be perfectly happy for someone to prove me wrong on that point. Unless and until someone does so, though, it's not a good choice. Heimstern Läufer 14:47, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Well, since it's being debated whether or not to do First Time Here for week 32, how about doing the article originally intended: the Double Deuce? MHarrington 20:00, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Since I upstaged the suggestion for Double D, I'll second featuring Double Deuce for this week. Great theme, and a lot of text for an intro. wbwolf (t | ed) 23:53, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Well, it! For reasons stated above and beyond! Take it away, sig: free 00:15, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 34 (Aug 17-23)

For this week, how about General Tso's Chicken? MHarrington 20:02, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
