Would someone please clear up the nature of this article? Is this an ARG? And I feel that it is unclear in the article how this relates to LG15. I've seen this thread in the forum, but still don't really understand what it is after poking around in there and reading this article. --Treefunk 17:41, 7 December 2006 (CST)

It's basically an ARG, but I never had anything to do with it. I guess there's a Web site, students go to the Web site and do fake homework assignments. And there's also a backstory about how the teacher and some of the students are insane. The reason it's fan fiction is because the story claimed that Bree went through the homeschooler's aggregate. I have no idea what we should do with this page -- it's really confusing to someone unfamiliar with the game (like me!).--JayHenry 17:44, 7 December 2006 (CST)
HSA is my independent fan-creation. It is a story told within the Breeniverse. The students enroll for terms, complete assignments based on philosophy, art and technology (for example). Bree has been rumoured to have been a student. This spin-off creates videos that often uses Bree's life as an example (for how to or how not to behave). It is here because it is not an ARG; it is more along the lines of immersive fiction for people who like to discuss issues like philosophy, history and the humanities and do not find the forum a good place to do so. It was created during the rise of CiW for the lg15 fans who were looking for a different way to interact (and I did not like the focus on CiW), when it was at it's "heyday." There is a website where students interact with the story. However, no one is insane. There is a story that people follow, seperate from lg15's life, yet within her world. It is here because geeky intellectuals like to get together and explore the big questions in life (a bright student like Bree would thrive in this environment). After the videos came out, I was asked if I would object to having a section of the forum devoted to HSA. I was happy to comply. HSA has been a way for fans to get together to pursue intellectual ideas and to share their work. Guest speakerships (videos made by other lg15 regulars under the guise of HSA and appearing on HSA's YouTube account)have included twjaniak and LordGreystoke. I didn't create this page, but I have filled it in. It is probably a good example of a fan spin-off that some people follow (as encouraged by lg15 production team.) It is in no way as popular as CiW or Opaphid. However, it has been around since October and for those who frequent the official forum, it is a staple with regularly released videos. Perhaps I could clarify the introduction to explain the steps that students take to become involved and graduate from HSA. I will be happy to help you with further information on this spin-off series. However, I have been distracted by life, career and family. Hopefully after the New Year, I will be able to devote time to this entry.--gogo 12:52 EST 23 December 2006

I clarified the game aspect of HSA, so those unfamiliar with this activity would understand its relationship to lg15. I left the second section "HSA: On the Lg15 Forum" because it was written by someone else and I hadn't the time to remove it. Please let me know if this clarification is helpful or if you need more info. I will be back soon to finish and update. Thanks !).--Ogog 10:42 EST 26 December 2006

That's some great work on the HSA page! I was never that familiar with it but now I feel up to speed. The old page really didn't do it justice. Keep it up and thanks for contributing! OwenIsCool 23:46, 26 December 2006 (CST)

Cleanup Still Apply?

This page has had a cleanup tag on it for a while. Do people still believe it is in need of a cleanup? If so, what are people looking for the page to have that it currently doesn't? --Zoey 20:31, 13 May 2007 (CDT)

since the tagger never gave a reason, and there has been no discussion on the cleanup even after 2 months. I think it's safe to say that the tag canbe removed. -misty 11:47, 14 May 2007 (CDT)
