The Homestar Runner Wiki (HRWiki) is a collaborative encyclopedia designed to chronicle and document the growth of homestarrunner.com. There are certain things it should not be mistaken for:

HRWiki is not Wikipedia

The Homestar Runner Wiki uses the same software as Wikipedia and thus has much in common. But it is not part of Wikipedia, nor is it in any way affiliated with Wikipedia's parent organization, the Wikimedia Foundation. Thus, many practices and policies at the Homestar Runner Wiki are different from those at Wikipedia.

HRWiki is not a fansite

The Homestar Runner Wiki is not a place to publish Homestar Runner-related creative work; however, our sister wiki, the Fanstuff Wiki, is.

HRWiki is not a forum

The purpose of HRWiki talk pages is to allow discussion of the content of the page it accompanies. Talk pages are not for chit-chatting even if it does relate to Homestar Runner. (See Talk page policy.) Instead, the Homestar Runner Wiki hosts a forum at http://forum.hrwiki.org/ for non-encyclopedic discussion and an IRC channel for casual chat.

HRWiki is not a web host

The Homestar Runner Wiki is not for hosting media, blogs, or links. However, users are allowed to link to websites within the guidelines of the HRWiki User space policy.

HRWiki is not a soapbox

The Homestar Runner Wiki is not a place to publicly express opinions on current events or politics. Any speeches must relate directly to Homestar Runner or the Homestar Runner Wiki.
