HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 16 (Apr 19-25)

How about either Pom Pilot or Corpy NT6? Or, since it's Earth Day, Pistols for Pandas? RickTommy 10:34, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

They both have sufficient text amounts, but not really enough appearances. And as for P4P, no comment. MHarrington 07:41, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
I think the Corpy's not so bad (partly because of the gallery), but Pom Pilot does seem to me to be too short. P4P could be done, though I do kind of get the feeling we're doing too much recent stuff these days maybe. Heimstern Läufer 07:55, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
If we're going to talk about P4P, we should do the organization itself before we do the toon. MHarrington 18:30, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
Since we're already doing the Corpy NT6, that and Pom Pilot are out. Pistols For Pandas (organization) certainly could work. As lateral move, we could also do bike thief. wbwolf (t | ed) 01:27, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 17 (Apr 26-May 2)

For this week, how about something "live"? I'm thinking the the SXSW Panel from March 14, 2005. Combine the intro with a summary of the script and it would work, I think. MHarrington 07:41, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

Certainly would be good to something real-world. Yeah, I think that would work, from what I can see in the article. Maybe might be good to prepare the writeup a bit early so we can be sure it works (note: not saying right now. Just sometime as it gets closer.) Heimstern Läufer 07:49, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
I am not disagreeing with that article at all; in fact, I think that it would be great to do something real-life, seeing as how we haven't in a while. But, perhaps out of my silliness and stupidity, I feel that The Couch should be featured for this specific week. StrongAwesome 18:55, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
Good idea. The Couch. RickTommy (edits) 10:44, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 18 (May 3-9)

Since it's been a while since our last set of dailies, how about Dangeresque characters, as MHarrington has previously suggested? Heimstern Läufer 07:43, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

Good idea. But I have two other daily ideas:
  • Stuff in Old Flash Stuff (we can start off with Old Flash Stuff, then do six of the nine items in OFS. I'm wondering which three items will have to miss out; those three will probably need to be the three most important ones so they can have their own week.)
  • Main Pages (we can do six main Main Pages, then one of the secret ones. Sometime in the future, we will probably do three more MP dailies in this format. However, this means that one MP will get a week to itself; as Main Page 22 seems to be the most important Main Page, it will probably be the one.)
RickTommy 11:40, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Are you suggesting these ideas for this week or just sometime in the future? If the former, I really think the Dangeresque ones should take priority since they were suggested a while ago. Heimstern Läufer 11:45, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
If we're going to do the Dangeresque characters for a dailies set, how about this (as per what has been said repeatedly):
That seems a bit solid, don't you think? MHarrington 03:08, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, but maybe with one of them replaced with The Stunt Double. RickTommy talk 08:22, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
No, I think it's pretty solid how it is right now. MHarrington 05:11, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
I would really like to have Sultry Buttons included. She's an easily overlooked character because she's only in SBCG4AP (though she plays a critical role in it), and I think it's good for us to emphasize these lesser-known ones. And no, I don't think she should be substituted for Cutesy, as including them both (preferably consecutively, even) emphasizes the unclear relationship between the two. Heimstern Läufer 07:35, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
What if we fleetingly mentioned Sultry in Cutesy's article? MHarrington 05:20, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
I think the list we have now is fine! But we should stick with the characters in the toons and the games.So I say no Sultry Buttons Rondleman! Stuff I did.Talk. 18:43, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
And I say otherwise. The very interest of Sultry Buttons is eliminated if she's but a footnote in Cutesy's bio. She deserves a full day on the main page. Heimstern Läufer 10:51, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 19 (May 10-16)

How about a Limozeen character - Larry, perhaps? RickTommy 07:09, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

It's been, like, nine or ten weeks since the best thing email was articled, so I don't know. MHarrington 07:37, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I think waiting for a bit before featuring Larry would be for the best. Heimstern Läufer 04:13, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

How about Da Huuuuuudge? PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

How about Sterrance instead? RickTommy (edits) 11:16, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Please discuss; don't just throw out ideas without discussing what others have already said. Heimstern Läufer 11:19, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 20 (May 17-23)

Five years since the first featured article! Maybe we should do something special to mark the occasion? RickTommy 07:09, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I can't really think of anything. MHarrington 05:12, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
I was thinking maybe Index Page, the most imprtant page on the site (not really, but it's often the first page that one looks at on the site), or an early toon like Pom Pom Too, or one of the earliest articles to be suggested as a featured article: Schenactady Crispies. RickTommy (edits) 00:13, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
I don't know. MHarrington 18:58, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 21 (May 24-30)

Missy Palmer? RickTommy talk 01:52, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 22 (May 31-Jun 6)

How about a Videlectrix game? We have available: Secret Collect, Rhino Feeder, Thy Dungeonman, Population: Tire, Pigs on Head, Thy Dungeonman 2, 50K Racewalker, Duck Guardian One, and Thy Dungeonman 3. RickTommy talk 01:52, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Based on the ones listed here, I would say Population: Tire is probably the best bet. MHarrington 05:10, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 23 (Jun 7-13)

For this week, how about the jibblies? MHarrington 05:16, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2010, week 24 (Jun 14-20)

For this week, how about Strong Bad's Computer Malfunctioning? We could have the intro and all the little descriptions after it, sort of like that article on characters lacking certain body parts. MHarrington 18:45, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

HRwiki:Featured article for 2010, week 25 (Jun 21-27)

How about The Reddest Radish? RickTommy (edits) 00:20, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

While this is (once again) over the limit of ten, there doesn't seem to be a clear consensus in some of the nominations above. Why not contribute your opinion there first instead of adding more weeks? StrongAwesome 00:53, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

HRwiki:Featured article for 2010, week 26 (Jun 28-Jul 4)

Cardboard Marzipan? RickTommy (edits) 10:44, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
