HRWiki:Featured article for 2008, week 50 (Dec 8-14)

So, it's gettin' really cold out (probably), so why don't we do winter pool? Perfect for this kind of probable weather. That Game Dude 386 14:24, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

I dunno, it's still not actually winter at this point, not until the 21st. This seems a bit more suited to sometime in January to me. Heimstern Läufer 14:45, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
We could do that the first week of January. How about we do some Old-Timey character for this week instead? MHarrington 18:07, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
(Heim: Winter doesn't start until December 21??? Sewiously??? Acam30 19:22, 13 October 2008 (UTC))
Yes, winter doesn't start until the 21st. Anyway, I was thinking of an Old-Timey character, like maybe The Sneak. MHarrington 19:38, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Let's use something radio related, like Radio Sightings.--NintenEthan 01:31, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
No, that one does not have enough information for it to be a worthy article. MHarrington 16:21, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
True. Radio Sightings is only a list. I was thinking about the email radio, but I'm not sure if we should use another email yet.--NintenEthan 02:58, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
Let's save radio for another time. Anyways, I can dig The Sneak for this week. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:15, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
Just to make it known, i don't think any of the sightings pages will ever make good FAs. — Defender1031*Talk 22:47, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
On the topic of winter, winter pool seemingly took place before winter came, as there was very little snow, as if winter was a week or so away. But, if we say "no" to it, I'd say that, while I personally think that Fluffy Puff Air-Puffed Sugar Delights would be a cool Old-Timey FA, The Sneak is fine by me. No futher comments against the flow from me, I promise. That Game Dude 386 01:47, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Hey, I'm cool with The Sneak. I can't wait for the opportunity to use radio, though.--NintenEthan 03:10, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Hmm... How about since its 2 weeks before christmas, how about we do the email nightlife? it's 2 emails before winter pool , anyway...
...I find it a little out of the ordinary that you wuold suggest that at this point in the conversation. I'm wondering what other reason you have for your little interjection. (Also.... I thought we agreed on The Sneak? Acam30 01:20, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Nah, let's save nightlife for another time.--NintenEthan 03:00, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Before we do nightlife, we should do "Club Technochocolate". Not now, though. MHarrington 01:59, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2008, week 51 (Dec 15-21)

Winter FINALLY hits this week, so I think the time is right for winter pool. Any takers? That Game Dude 386 21:09, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

We frequently do a Decemberween feature this week (like with Halloween, we've traditionally done two features for D'ween). Mind you, I don't have any ideas about what we could feature that's D'ween-related, so if no one thinks of a good one, I'm cool with the pool. Heimstern Läufer 00:32, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
Have we featured Decemberween In July yet? I kinda like that one. (Nice rhyme by the way Heimi.) Acam30 02:18, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
D-Ween in July is a sort of short article, in addition, i'd think it'd be better suited to some day in july when people are dreaming of winter... — Defender1031*Talk 02:52, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
And in fairness, we have featured a short from "Decemberween In July" around this time some time ago, which was "That Time of Year". Anyway, we could try another toon that was featured then. I'm thinking Teen Girl Squad Issue 6. How about that one? MHarrington 03:04, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
I think that's a pretty good idea. We could do winter pool in January then. (Note to Game dude386, I'm really not trying to ignore your suggestions; it's just that we like to do seasonal FAs sometimes, and this is a good chance. Plus it's not that long until January!) Heimstern Läufer 04:04, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
I also support TGS 6. JCM 22:58, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
A little close after featuring Whats-her-face, but on the whole, why not? That Game Dude 386 02:11, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, it's not like it hasn't happened before. For Week 4 of this year, we had So and So, followed three weeks later by TGS Issue 12. So this has happened before. MHarrington 18:31, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2008, week 52 (Dec 22-28)

Since we featured Summer Short Shorts previously (coincidentally, about halfway through the year!), I think the Decemberween article we should feature is the follow up to this one: Decemberween Short Shorts. MHarrington 03:24, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

I would be in support of that. Heimstern Läufer 04:22, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
I was gonna suggest that one for last week but I wasn't sure if we'd featured it yet. I would be in support of that also. (No mocking tone intended Heimi ol' buddy.) Acam30 15:41, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
I suggest a Decemberween themed email, how about what I want ? Sp0ng3b0b 10:18, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
what I want has been done already. Homestar-Winner (talk) 11:09, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Even if it was available, it would have to be a minor article before the major article, which was exactly how it was done when it did receive its own article. MHarrington 18:30, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

So, Decemberween Short Shorts? JCM 23:39, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I think so, and not just because of Decemberween, either, but also because we did Summer Short Shorts, too. That was exactly halfway through the year, for Week 26! MHarrington 06:17, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 1 (Dec 29-Jan 4)

For this week, and the start of the new year, I decided that we should finally use That Game Dude's suggestion that has been proposed for several weeks but kept getting bumped off: the email winter pool. Now that all of the major holidays are out of the way, I think we can do that one at last. MHarrington 17:24, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

I'd be a hypocrite to say no. That Game Dude 386 20:49, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
After all, what better way to ring in the new year than to sink into a pool full of gelatin? Heimstern Läufer 02:05, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
I have to agree with you on that one Heimi. Who wouldn't? Support winter pool. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 14:46, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Winter pool? Sounds good to me TATPOJ121 21:58, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, that'd be perfect. It'd be the first time we ever did a post-2006 email. MHarrington 21:59, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 2 (Jan 5-11)

In the past, about this week, we usually feature something related to either 20X6 or Trogdor. This year, I was thinking of doing both at the same time with the Trogdor-centric toon: Happy Trogday. MHarrington 00:05, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm up for it! DrPepper42 02:04, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
With a 20X6 reference to boot! That Game Dude 386 02:08, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
I was thinking Trogday 08. It is the newest Trogdor-related cartoon and there is some historical significance (with the theme of The S is for sucks dragon) Any takers?TATPOJ121 01:23, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Who said it had to be a new toon? MHarrington 01:39, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
No one. just a suggestion.TATPOJ121 03:25, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
I think Trogday 08 is a good idea for sometime, but since Happy Trogday was suggested first and has a high degree of support, we should go for that this time. Incidentally, Tatpoj, if there's already a suggestion on this page and you make a new suggestion, it's best to make sure you address the previous suggestions and why you think yours is preferable (this is not really a vote, but rather a discussion). Keep on keeping on! Heimstern Läufer 03:33, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
Also, I personally think we should do TSifS before Trogday 08. JCM 01:54, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 3 (Jan 12-18)

This will mark a while since we've done a character or pseudocharacter. I think it would be well worth our time to feature Tire: A remarkably detailed article about an inanimate object that is nonetheless often treated as a character. Heimstern Läufer 13:19, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

That'd be a great one! MHarrington 01:58, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
I'm surprised ol' Poppy the Tire wasn't featured already! Go for it! Strongkinghomsarsmith 02:03, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
After becoming the national symbol of The Cheat and Tireia, it's a good time to feature the sole inhabitant of Strong Badia. That Game Dude 386 21:58, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 4 (Jan 19-25)

While we are on the subject of former countries in Strong Badia The Free, I think we should do a location that needs an article badly: namely, Club Technochocolate (formerly Pompomerania). It's been a while since we've done an actual location anyway. MHarrington 17:13, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

It seems like a solid article to me; I'm cool with it. Heimstern Läufer 08:06, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
As a location in the HR universe, I'm down with it, but we should feature SBCG4AP and all the games in it before we start listing SBTF loctions... or better yet, we could do SBCG4AP and the games on a daily baisis, like we did for Puppet Jams and other puppet stuff a while back. Sound good? Otherwise, Club Technochocolate is good, but I think we can hold it off until SBCG4AP has been featured... That Game Dude 386 14:33, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
I'm not talking about doing Pompomerania, I'm talking about just doing what it really is: Club Technochocolate. As for doing SBCG4AP on a weekly basis, we only have five episodes, not seven. And any of them would work well solo, I think. So I'm only talking about Club Technochocolate for this week. MHarrington 18:06, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
OK, CTC is good, and next week I'll elaborate on my plans to feature SBCG4AP... That Game Dude 386 21:36, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

HRWiki:Featured article for 2009, week 5 (Jan 26-Feb 2)

OK, so here's my proposal for an SBCG4AP week: We feature SBCG4AP, SBCG4AP Dev Blog, and each of the five episodes daily. Great idea, or no? That Game Dude 386 00:41, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Except maybe for the Dev Blog, I think those are all important enough to get a whole week, not just a day. How about just SBCG4AP for now, and feature the individual episodes another time? Heimstern Läufer 00:45, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
OK. Man, I still can't beleive we haven't already done it! That Game Dude 386 00:57, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
I think we were waiting to feature it until all 5 episodes were released, and until it was cleaned up a little bit. Personally, I think the actual SBCG4AP page should just be a disambig sometimes, and I certainly don't think it's ready for featuring. Acam30 16:14, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
Wow! Look who forgot to read the article before she commented again! *hits head on keyboard<nowik>*</nowiki> Nevermind guys, Disregard. Acam30 16:17, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
