Matt on Twitter

So, one of my followers did a Follow Friday for someone named Ron Planet, saying they were the voice of Strong Bad. I followed them and it seems like it really is Matt, and he has some unofficial answers to questions being posted by users here on the wiki. Here's the link to his Twitter page: [1]--The Swedish Ace 01:10, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

STUFF namespace

Since STUFF has been dead for years and there aren't even any pages in the STUFF namespace, should that namespace still exist? RickTommy (edits) 10:20, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Category:HRWiki History. — Defender1031*Talk 11:25, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
There are pages in the STUFF namespace... They're just deleted. — It's dot com 10:03, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Website Dead?

Alright, there hasn't been an OFFICIAL toon or update or anything since December 22, 2010. In internet terms, this site is DEAD.

It's not dead as long as it's still being hosted, and it is. What's more, we just recently got some info from the Bros. Chaps, admittedly not on the website, indicating that they're still around. Besides, even if it was dead, what impact would that have on this Wiki? --Jay v.2022 (Auld lang syne) 23:56, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
Matt's on Twitter and he's said a few times that he really wants to get back into the business of making flash cartoons. I, for one, think we'll see a legit halloween toon this year. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 00:33, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
Let's just hope our "weens" don't get crossed again. Also, Forum? ColdReactive 21:49, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
Ween cartoon? Hope nobody got their hopes up for that one. 09:41, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Dates, please, look at the dates. ColdReactive 09:56, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Sounds promising...

From Matt's twitter: "no one in their right mind would willingly stop making Homestar cartoons for a living. #needlesslycryptic" o.O

Unless he's implying he and Mike are in their wrong minds! Holy crop! --DorianGray 08:21, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Or that he and Mike were forced to stop, unwillingly. - 02:04, 4 October 2011 (UTC)


I just rediscovered this place after, about what 3 years? There was a remembrance thread about H*R on /co/ and I remembered this place and still remembered my username so I typed it in and Bam, I just gotta say, wow, I look like such a kid back in '08 its unbelievable how much Ive seemed to change. but yeah the point I guess here is to just say thanks to anyone still here for bearing with me for my formative years on the Internet, I remember really loving this place. :) 06:59, 9 October 2011 (UTC) Coach B| PRANK CALL!|

I feel the same way myself about my looking like a kid here...See, back when I was on the forum as TheHumanScreenshot (and occasionally on the wiki as Mr. Screenshot), I had a habit of linking to a really lame crossover webcomic I wrote at the time everywhere that I could, including my userpage on the wiki, the Comic Sightings page (to this day, I'm still afraid to go there to see if what I wrote has been edited since then), and several forum threads. Once I started learning how dumb my comic was, I quit posting to the forum and stopped logging in on the wiki out of shame. To this day, if I want an edit made to an article, I will usually hope someone else makes it for me, occasionally post anonymously to the talk page about it, and, very rarely, make the edit myself (also anonymously); I also have gone back to merely lurking on the forum.
Maybe someday I'll start logging in again, have my username changed to something unrelated to my comic, and start being an active member of the wiki, but I'm still reluctant to right now...
Welcome back, by the way! Er...I mean, I don't know if we ever met on the forum, seeing as how I don't remember seeing your username, but welcome back anyway :) 02:41, 10 October 2011 (UTC)


We always knew we were special. Its is nice when the TBC give us a nod, whether it be exclusive content or contribution during a pledge drive. I wonder if there are enough of these occurrences to warrant its own page? I R F 11:05, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

You mean something like The Brothers Chaps' Fansite Acknowledgments? --DorianGray 11:12, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
Yep, precisely. We should do that some day :) I R F 11:14, 10 October 2011 (UTC)


A song from sbemails (200 sbemails to be precise) is being released on TMBG's new album "New Album Raises New and Troubling Questions" Notable news to be added to the page?

I think a note in the Fun Facts or somewhere on email thunder would suffice, with appropriate mentions on They Might Be Giants and links to the relevant places on This Might Be a Wiki (like Album Raises New And Troubling Questions). I don't think it needs to be added to "What's new?". -- Tom 19:27, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
Don't forget sightings. — Defender1031*Talk 21:22, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
I don't think sightings is the best place. They Might Be Giants are more affiliated with The Brothers Chaps than the entities listed there. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 22:05, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Holiday logo changeover

The Wiki logo hasn't been changed to the Ween-themed one. RickTommy (edits) 04:11, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

You don't say? — It's dot com 04:12, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
It's November. Shouldn't the Halloween logo be removed? StarFox 00:11, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Yes, actually. The plan has been to take down the decorations today, which we will do in just a little bit. — It's dot com 17:59, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Logo bug

And speaking of the logo, there is a problem with it that I and a couple of others have experienced: sometimes, it does not move out of view when scrolling down - the big word Wiki stays at the top of the screen, and there is a white box the size of the logo that just stays there. What is causing this problem? RickTommy (edits) 04:11, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

Could not reproduce. — It's dot com 04:16, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
RickTommy, are you using Firefox? Hovering over the left arrow button (back button) while at the top of the page brings down a strange white box that does not appear on any other element. un-hovering fixes that, but it re-appears if you hover it again. It only happens on the HRWiki logo, and no where else. ColdReactive 09:58, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Cookie issue

In Chrome, whenever I go to the forum from the wiki while logged in, then back to the wiki, I find myself logged out. Yet when I go back to my previous wiki session, I strangely find myself logged back in. What is causing this problem? RickTommy (edits) 05:27, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

If I'm right, the specific browser isn't relevant. My guess is you're logged in to (without the www), but the forum links back to, which for technical reasons that we haven't ever fixed is treated like a separate site. A workaround for the issue is to log in to both and — It's dot com 19:35, 10 November 2011 (UTC)


Mike and Matt read the wiki, right? Maybe someone could change the main page of the wiki to look like this and Mike and/or Matt will see it and think "Those people want us to make more H*R toons, let's do it!" -- Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:01, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Good idea or not a good idea? YOU decide! -- Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 02:36, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
Very bad idea. Makes us look desperate, and let's be honest: do you really think that Mike and Matt believe we don't want to see more H*R toons? --Jay v.2022 (Auld lang syne) 06:03, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
My ideas never work. :( -- Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 16:19, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
And why might that be?

Orphaned Articles

What should I do if I find an article that's not linked to from any toons' or games' articles, but don't have time to add the links myself? BBG 18:38, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Are they already on Special:LonelyPages? — It's dot com 18:57, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
Awesome isn't there, because my user page and some Talk pages link to it. However, last time I checked, no toons' or games' pages linked to it. BBG 02:21, 13 December 2011 (UTC)


The theme hasn't been changed to the Christmas one. Dagoth 15:05, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

  • True, are there official on/off dates? isn't technically winter yet. 01:47, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Ees Deg

Did you know that right-clicking on the logo and selecting "play" will cause it to toggle between, in this order:

  • Homestar in hat?
  • Homestar in mistletoe?
  • Marzipan with lights in hair?
  • Strong Bad in hat?

It's pretty cool. You should check it out if you didn't know.--Strongstarhomebad 16:39, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

...or you can just click on the characters. All of the special logos (i.e. not normal styles [yet]) have hidden secrets. — It's dot com 16:57, 25 December 2011 (UTC)


Okay so we can change the main page and tell people that we turned it into Homsar Wiki. And we can change the logo! good idea, eh? — Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:55, 27 December 2011 (UTC) (AKA Canadian guy)

But still, this idea will probably turn out a disaster, just like all my *cough cough* other "ideas" -- Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:57, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
