    As much as that is by far my favorite article on the site, don't think we should feature non-featured articles if they weren't featured first, since that's the physics of this idea, right? --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 07:28, June 20, 2012 (UTC)
    If the new VFH nom I just did goes through, Ill nominate this article for 2005 when it was written, and everybody wins, except for Lolipop, cause he's not here anymore. --ShabiDOO 08:12, June 20, 2012 (UTC)
    I am going to have to pull a "killer froggy" on this wiki and nominate it forever. I can be a very patient person. --ShabiDOO 03:35, June 25, 2012 (UTC)
  • No solid nominations yet, but an idea: we could run it 10 days with 2 articles per year up through 2009. A retro portrait of article evolution, and such. Also, to accommodate the format, 5 nominations per user. Anyway, some solid nominations now: Hot indiscriminate sex (2008), Fire Hydrant (2006), Volcano (2007), and if we're expanding to 5 if you like my idea, then Cabbage (2005) and Disorganised Crime (2009). --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 07:35, June 20, 2012 (UTC)


  • Kitten Huffing and Fish Puns have got to be on the list somewhere. Those are the two articles I first read when I found this joint. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, Jun 26 '12 8:29 (UTC)
    And yet you stuck around. Take that, your taste! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 10:47, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
    Threw them on the list for ya --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 22:49, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

Erm

Is it fair to include "Top 10 of the Year" articles, as they have already been featured twice? --Nikau (talk) 12:37, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

If there's one feature about featured features it's that you can't feature features too much. Feature. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 12:51, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, but even if you hit 88 mph and change the past, the feature will still be the same. Grandfather parody and all. Probably still applies if you fuck your own mother or disappear for extended periods with an eccentric bald guy. That series wasn't too child friendly in hindsight. --Nikau (talk) 13:02, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
I went out of my way not to include any for that reason, but I really don't see why not, since they're supposed to be representative of the year and good and all that jazz double-featuring nonwithstanding. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 22:50, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
If a user nominates it and the community selects it, then it will be part of it...though...I would be happy to see some "hidden gems" featured...articles that had little hype back then, but are utterly awsome or people appreciate them more now. If one of you would simply read all 1700 of those featured articles and nominate some, it would be greatly appreciated. --ShabiDOO 22:54, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
Gotta love the hidden gems. I can't nominate it because I used all mine up already, but I'm just going to throw out the name UnBooks:Tarquin Middleton: My Battle with Depression. for good measure, if someone else wants to bear its burden. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 06:12, June 27, 2012 (UTC)
Just re-feature all of Winstanley1's shit, what say. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usWed, Jun 27 '12 9:23 (UTC)

Why?

Can we just go for the 80's stuff? GiratinaOriginForme |Si Plebius Dato' (Sir) Joe ang Pinoy CUN|IC Kill 800px-Flag of the Philippines svg | 05:56, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

You shouldn't ride your fixie while wearing those skin-tight jeans, brah. It cuts off the blood-flow to your brain. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usWed, Jun 27 '12 9:23 (UTC)

The pictures cause all the edit-section links to move around. Can we move them to the left side of the page? --Qzekrom sig trans Sir CuteZekromOnTheRadio [CUNPBJ'12PLS(0)] 13:42, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Touch them and I'll hurt you. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usThu, Jun 28 '12 14:13 (UTC)
Had to be done. Besides, it looks better too. A (Ruins) 15:07, 28 June 2012
Aaaaaand the edit sections are still messed up. Way to go, 'splode. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usThu, Jun 28 '12 15:16 (UTC)
It does look better that way. --ShabiDOO 15:18, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
At least I'm half right. A (Ruins) 15:21, 28 June 2012
Except the whole thing about messing up the lists too. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 21:05, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Apparently

Nominations are still open, so I'm hereby editing this forum so people who don't know how to circumvent the "No Editing" button can nominate stuff.
