Sorry I don't know proper wiki syntax here, but seeing this thread: made me remember that lots of articles have a "view forum thread re: this toon". I'd say this thread qualifies. --Forum user, strongio bros. 3 // edited as anonymous -- April 2, 2014, 12:49 AM @ GMT -6

On it, thanks for pointing it out! Next time, be bold and add it yourself! --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 06:03, 2 April 2014 (UTC)


Could someone who has more accurate equipment than I do put the length of the toon on the page? Thanks! Stev0 18:57, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Desktop Themes Fun Facts

What would you juys say to just putting all Fun Facts related to the Desktop Themes (including the sounds, but not including the visuals during them) on the Homestar Runner Desktop Theme and Strong Bad Desktop Theme pages? I still feel like that fact about the origin of Homestar's song is a bit redundant - maybe moreso - and I'm not too keen on duplicating the "Windows startup sound" fact here either. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 07:10, 4 April 2014 (UTC)


Because this toon is featured on the index page right now, the subtitles linked to it on the wiki are actually the subtitles for the normal index page. Will it be possible to distinguish between Index and April Fools' 2014 by the Flash file itself, so that Debra Simone the Internet can contribute some English (and then other-language) subtitles? -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 09:27, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

I recently added the work in progress subtitle using the toon's SWF file and it works! I'm now currently making the English subtitles for it, so expect that soon! --Anthonyjk 00:41, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
Still, the page is named index. That means if the Brothers Chaps move the SWF file you'll probably have to rename the page. Plus the other subtitles for index are still linked to the April Fools' page. I just have a feeling that the wiki wasn't designed to handle such a scenario (the index page being replaced with a toon for more than one day). -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 02:42, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

homestars eyes

in this toon, the shiny spots on homestars eyes move according to where he is looking. is this normal? if so, this is the first time ive noticed it, but if not, i see three possibilities:

1. it was an intentional style change, or it was done specifically to emphasize parts of the acting in this toon (though it would normally be frowned upon in animation, because the shiny spots on characters are determined by lighting and not by orientation)

2. the chaps could be rusty, having not animated the HR characters in a while

3. someone else animated this toon

thoughts? -- 02:25, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
