Ding! FeedBurner Page is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.


[edit] For those who never heard of this

(Including myself) What is FeedBurner? That should really be in the article. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 04:54, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Feedburner is an RSS publishing service. Basically, it allows someone to set up an RSS feed without installing and setting up the service on their own system. wbwolf (t | ed) 05:14, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Info for other prages

Somebody should go through this page and see if there's any info that should be added to other pages, since the descriptions are kinds like little mini-commentaries. - 16:37, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Move to individual articles

I'm not sure the data from this page should be one big page. Instead, it should be moved to a new RSS Feed Description section of each page's fun facts, where a person reading the articles can most benefit from it. — It's dot com 21:52, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

I don't see why the info couldn't be on both pages - Here and the toon's page. A person who just stumbled upon the feature would like to read all those tidbits on one page instead of looking into each individual page. Besides, there are updates that don't fit into toon articles, like the wiki donation update. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 22:05, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
Agree with Elcool. It makes sense to have them in both places. — Defender1031*Talk 22:18, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
I (also) agree with Elcool. The information presented here is unique to the Feedburner page and as such, should probably remain in one location. We can still either link to it in each topic's respective pages back to the appropriate section, or create mini-templates for inclusion both here and in the original page. The former approach would of course, be simpler and I'm slightly inclined to follow that one. Oh and this page should be added to the Weeklies Checklist as well (replacing the Podcast instructions). --Stux 22:20, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
I don't think a person should have to click from the individual articles to get to this information, and so it should be on both the articles and this page if indeed it has to be on this page at all. Are templates really necessary? The data shouldn't change after it's originally copied and pasted. — It's dot com 22:32, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
I think it should be in both places (a template probably isn't necessary).- 00:34, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
I too, think that this page is needed, but quotes should be put on indivudal pages. Do we really need the TTBD on the top? TBD isn't on the main article.--Jellote wuz here 17:24, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Removed the template. Now to get to the job of adding a fun fact to articles around the FeedBurner description. Anyone up to it? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 21:04, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
I've added the first two for Compy Catalog and independent. In both cases, I was just following the pattern used for the Podstar Runner descriptions, and stuck them under the "Trivia" section. Anyone got a better idea? wbwolf (t | ed) 23:09, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
That idea works. If anyone needs me to, I'll do so. I can do it anytime in the next hour and a half.--Jellote wuz here 23:38, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
I like it. The link back from each toon needs to point to the specific section on this article. It should also be first in the list of trivia. — It's dot com 01:41, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

RSS articles now added to all the relevant toon articles, sir! wbwolf (t | ed) 21:34, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] New Baby=Very Little Girl?

Wait, new baby? Do they mean Very Little Girl? CrabAttack1999 23:09, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

No. A newer one than that. --DorianGray 23:10, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
D'OH! Yeah, I just realized that, like, five seconds before I noticed this post. I'm so hardheaded that way, I always miss something extremely obvious. I call them D'OH!s. CrabAttack1999 23:12, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Why

Why did they make this so late in the site's history? RickTommy 00:30, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Maybe because they only thought about it just now? Also maybe before they weren't sure if they needed one, but with the upcoming baby break they knew was going to happen they wanted to create one to assure fans they weren't completely gone? OpenSourceGreg 13:29, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
