[edit] Redirects

This is a placeholder topic for 5-year redirects. Due to overall decreased activity, FAs are now being reused more often. The common practice has become to redirect to the FA exactly 5 years prior to the current FA. When an article is re-used, mark it in the following manner:

{{FA queue|<date>|Redirects|alternatediscussion=yes|decision=<article name>}}

Example:

{{FA queue|15 Aug 2011 |Redirects|alternatediscussion=yes|decision=1-Up}}

Please keep this discussion in the FA page at all times, but do copy it to archive pages as well.

[edit] Sickly Sam

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 21 (May 21–27)

It's been a while since we've featured something Old-Timey-related. RickTommy (edits) 10:27, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

It's a good idea! --hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:19, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
Guess I'll unstall this and say I support this for a future FA. — Ngamer01 16:59, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Super NES

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 22 (May 28–Jun 3)

Well, it was the first-ever H*R animation. RickTommy (edits) 00:40, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

There is a draft here, though the writeup needs some trimming. I'm in support for this. — Ngamer01 13:44, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
I agree with ngamer. This is a fine feature. — Defender1031*Talk 18:16, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

[edit] flag day

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 24 (Jun 11–17)

Week of Flag Day (Jun 11-17)

flag day. RickTommy (edits) 06:18, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

I'll support this. — Ngamer01 18:01, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
This works. — Defender1031*Talk 11:21, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
I'm cool with featuring this too. --Stux 17:16, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Breakfast Cereal

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 25 (Jun 18–24)

It has a long enough intro, starts with a quote from an interview, and is important to the TBC; what more could you want? RickTommy (edits) 08:12, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

draft --hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:19, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
Can you trim that draft down to a more reasonable size. We aren't trying to shove whole articles in FAs. =P — Ngamer01 13:44, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I've done so. RickTommy (edits) 14:06, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
Better. I'll support this. Do note that Gfdgs never gave a vote for/against, so this can't be put in the FA queue yet, Rick. — Ngamer01 14:05, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
This would be a decent feature, i guess. — Defender1031*Talk 11:21, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

[edit] The Interview

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 27 (Jul 2–8)

It's one of the oldest toons that hasn't been featured yet. RickTommy (edits) 07:17, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

A classic. I'm actually rather surprised that it hasn't been featured yet. This, for a change, is a good suggestion. — Defender1031*Talk 11:10, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Agreed. Count me in supporting this. — Ngamer01 18:13, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
In order to not have another week roll by without doing it, I drafted a writeup in next week's slot to get the ball rolling. It's my first FA writeup, so it could probably use some improvements. — Defender1031*Talk 04:26, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
Looks fine to me. Good jorb. — Ngamer01 20:01, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

[edit] video games

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 29 (Jul 16–22)

As the first H*R toon I ever saw, I'd like to see it featured sometime soon. RickTommy (edits) 13:30, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

I'll unstall this to give it a vote for approval. This sbemail did introduce Thy Dungeonman which got three games in the series. — Ngamer01 15:43, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
Seems like it could make a good feature. I'll support this for next week. — Defender1031*Talk 16:16, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
I support this suggestion. If Ngamer meant "the week starting with July 22" in the strong badathlon discussion, then July 16 - 22 will work for this one. The Knights Who Say Ni 19:44, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

[edit] strong badathlon

Done HRWiki:Featured article for 2012, week 30 (Jul 23–29)

Why not feature this one around the time of the Olympics? We talked about doing so four years ago, but the suggestion came in last minute, and that was under the old format when it was kind of hard to shift the weeks of FAs around, so we didn't get to it. Heimstern Läufer 07:05, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. I support this. — Ngamer01 19:36, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
This is a great idea! — Defender1031*Talk 03:51, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Question. If we do feature this, when will it go up? The week of July 22nd since the opening Olympics ceremony is that Friday? — Ngamer01 15:43, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

I think that's a good idea. Featuring it the week after might be a little late and this might be a good lead-in. It'd be nice if there was something similarly-themed that could be featured the week after. Any other opinions? --Stux 17:09, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
Ngamer - did you mean the week of July 23 - 29? I agree that this is a great idea. The Knights Who Say Ni 19:44, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I meant July 23-29. H*R Wiki weeks are different (Monday - Sunday) from calender weeks (Sunday - Saturday) after all. — Ngamer01 20:10, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
Sure, that's a fine week to do it. Heimstern Läufer 17:15, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
