There are a lot of talk page discussions happening on this wiki. The problem is, this wiki is not very active, so such discussions rarely get consensus and very few things get done. (That's why I'm {{p|l=http://hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Links&diff=777176&oldid=777175 always}} {{p|l=http://hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Puppet_Character_Variations&diff=prev&oldid=776839 reviving}} {{p|l=http://hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Homestar_Runner_20th_Anniversary_Show&diff=prev&oldid=775801 old}} {{p|l=http://hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Teenage_Variation&diff=prev&oldid=776233 discussions}} with a phrase like "I still agree with this.")

Whenever I click the edit tab at the top of any page, it comes up with a window asking me if I want to save a file. The file is "index.php". I always click "Cancel" to be on the safe side but that means I can't edit. Strangely, it haven't got this problem before and it doesn't appear if I try to edit anonymously. Also, I can edit without getting this window if I edit a section, revert a page or start a new comment (like what I am doing now). It's only if I click on the edit tab at the top. Does this happen to anyone else and is the file OK to save? Please help because I can't edit efficently!  {{User:The Chort/sig}} 15:33, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

== Two Questions ==
-
:"Good news, everyone!" "I think I has the soloution!" OK, enough quotes. The main thing is, I don't have the File Download problem anymore! I think because of yesterday's April Fool's prank, my preferences got messed up somehow. You see, I had the "Use external editor by default" option checked which really meant "Download files onto my computer so they can be edited in a text editing program". By unchecking this option, it doesn't try to save any files so there's no more problems! "Thanks for your help, you old broom stick!" {{User:The Chort/sig}} 18:43, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Is WikiTikiTavi really easier on a single server than MediaWiki, or was that a joke as well? [[User:Jecowa|Jecowa]] 16:49, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm a stranger who wants to ask you some questions.
-
*Probably, considering that WTT is a less powerful engine, but it is pretty unlikely that there would be a need to switch softwares. The pages may have been less because there was less formatting, but images seem to me to be the most demanding. {{User:Dylnuge/sig}} 17:09, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
+
1) When will ALL the old Flash pages turn to HTML5?
-
::All that stuff about 'Tavi being better for our setup was made up. In fact, it was purposely exaggerated a bit so that people would realize it was a joke.

2) When are you going to UNBAN IP addresses who "committed" persistent vandalism?

4) Why wouldn't we see ANY updates from 2011 to 2014?

5) Could y'all please tell us what email The Brothers Chaps have?
-
:Eh, I thought it was really funny. I was serious when I said I was happy to use the WTT software, though. Not only was it a prank, but it was a special treat for people who didn't get to use it/a source of nostalga for older users.

By the way, for those who are wondering, there's already been a ''lot'' of conversation today that's been [[HRWiki:Main Page Talk Archive 11|archived]]. I don't want to rehash any of that, but I do want to seize the opportunity to get preachy as usual. This whole thing had ''me'' "seriously concerned," for a number of reasons.
+
:1) We don't know. Ask [[the Brothers Chaps]].
-
#A number of people knew, or were fairly sure, that it was a joke, but were very angry anyway and talked about crying for hours, leaving forever, or doing unspecified things with machine guns. I'm concerned about these people senses of humor. In particular it was called "cruel" more than once. People spoke as though we'd called a transportation strike in NYC, instead of simply changed the appearance (not even the functionality!) of a reference website about an Internet cartoon. If losing the soft blues and reds of the HRWiki really caused you substantial pain and suffering, then maybe the wiki is a ''little'' too important in your life!
+
:2) Never. Why should we?
-
#A number of other people decided it was for real, and reacted even more violently. Now, in their defense, it's kind of understandable that a change that huge, enacted with ''no'' warning or discussion, would raise some ruckus (see the next point: ''that's why it wouldn't happen!''). But I'm concerned about this demographic, too, and their ability to handle change. What if this ''had'' been real? I was really saddened to see that so many people were ready to simply throw in the towel and walk away, or used their departure as threats. While it's safe to say that this particular change will never happen around here, Change, in general, happens. Relationships break up. Parents remarry. You get a new boss. You get in a car wreck. If you can't handle your wiki changing color, how are you going to roll with ''those'' punches?
+
:3) You'll have to be more specific as to what that means exactly. We aren't involved with homestarrunner.com, so we can't take down someone else's website. And The Brothers Chaps are planning to give the site a HTML5 update, so they won't take it down.
-
#Finally, for both groups, a word of stern comfort. At one point, JoeyDay <span class="plainlinks">[http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=Talk:Main_Page&diff=next&oldid=298224 said]</span> that the sysops had been discussing the change for a long time in [[HRWiki:Da Basement|Da Basement]], and that it had been archived by now. A lot of people did a lot of tricks with code and other techie methods of trying to prove or disprove that it was a hoax, but ''all it really took was following up on his claim.'' There was no discussion there, archived or otherwise. And that brings me to the heart of today's sermon. '''This kind of change wouldn't happen without a lot of discussion and wiki consensus.''' Remember? That's how things are done around here. We vote on stuff. We talk about it incessantly for weeks. The wiki is not "run" by sysops or admins in the sense that they randomly decide, in secret, to do something and then put it in place overnight. (Um... hehe... with the exception of this once.) ''This'' concerns me, that people would seriously think a change like that that affected everyone would be enacted without discussion, warning, input, or participation. I would hope people trust the sysops ''not'' to pull something like that, or, if they did, would stand up to them and supportively, constructively, but courageously tell them it's not right.

:For the record, I trusted the sysops completely. I think that that's a sign of how truly good you guys were. But I still can't see why there was so many people trying to prove it wrong. I heard countless people (you know who you are) trying to prove to me that it was a prank. I ''cannot believe'' that you thought there would be ''any'' benefit in ruining the prank for everyone. Why? Why did you think it was so imperative to make sure people knew and the sysop's trick was ruined?

:::::Look, I'm not sure what your issues are, but the simple truth is that the best thing for you to do is behave like someone who has never even heard the name "Maudi Algabban" (we are not fooled, we know who you are) and has literally zero curiosity about the name or the user's history, while also showing no particular interest toward all the things you show far too much interest over (such as the Pyongyang reference, the hiatuses, and the possibility of homestarrunner.com being taken down) and never, ever, even for a moment, even consider writing loud yelling, swearing posts demanding people unblock you and give you answers to questions we have no way of answering. Also, make constructive Wiki edits (that means not vandalism, with or without scare quotes), not just Talk page chatter. Basically, you need to start over completely and pretend you are not and were never you and do not care about you - and that doesn't mean to insult yourself, it means ''do not mention'' yourself. You've built up far too much bad karma, so it's very likely that even the slightest hint that you are you will be treated with immediate suspicion, and likely result in further blocks. And if you think this is unreasonable, perhaps what you really need to do is to find a way to end your obsession with this Wiki. You've been pulling these bizarre stunts for literal years. --{{User:Jay/sig}} 23:50, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

:::::::Um, no. But you ''do'' need some authority before you publicly address the wiki as a whole. Let me clarify that I don't mean that sysops are the only ones with any authority. Lots of users have it to some degree, and in particular it comes with making good edits, showing good judgement, having experience, and being noticed for those things. Also, if you're going to address the wiki, it helps when what you're posting is, well, correct, and what was originally posted here was ''incorrect''. It tried to sum up the April 1 events while we were still in the midst of them, and it didn't take into account the fact that it was all just a prank. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 22:27, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

Then there's the fact that all the special pages, apart from existing at all for some of them, looked identical to before (watchlist, history, edit, etc, etc)... at that point I'd probably check things like the source code, [[Special:Specialpages]] and [[MediaWiki:Monobook.css]] to check it was really just MediaWiki.

:The fanstuff wiki link is on the fake main page. It wasn't a separate wiki back then and so isn't up in the links at the top. Since we were trying to make our prank as close to the original as possible (while still maintaining basic functionality), we didn't include it. I have enabled the skin choice in the preferences mostly for the sake of recording our history. If someone actually plans to use the skin on an everyday basis and needs the link, I'll consider going to the trouble to add it, but for now I'm not going to worry about it.

:::::Woah, I'm sorry about the "Era of Good Feelings" thing. It was just supposed to be a stupid reference to the time in American history after the War of 1812 when Federalist party dissolved and there were few disagreements. The graph wasn't meant to alienate anyone, or claim superiority of pre-NSMC users. Also, Abdi, sorry about making it look like there were no spammers or vandals pre-NSMC, I should've made that apparent. - {{User:Kookykman/sig}} 20:41, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

::::::This will sound strange, but, does ANYONE like me here? I joined after the "era of good feelings", because I couldn't join during it. So, what? You're gonna sacrifice other possible users, um, userdom for yourself? I mean, if the wiki's gettin' hit hard, I can understand a 1 or 2 day block of all IPs and new users, maybe even a week, but, this one was like a month or two. So, seriously, this "Era of Good Feelings" can be renamed "Era of Selfishness". Sorry, just I hate it when users say the time I had to sit here and bookmark all of the pages I found errors in and couldn't fix was a "happy time". And, no offense to anyone, just, please everyone, stop saying it was a happy time. It truely wasn't for me. {{User:Bluebry muffin/sig}} 22:41, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

It's sort of ironic that I'm posting this here...but would it make sense to create a [[HRWiki:General Discussion]] page for general discussion instead of having it all posted here? I'm not saying that it's a problem that general discussion is found here, I'm just saying that it would make more sense. -[[User:AtionSong|<font face="BankGothic Md BT">AtionSong</font>]] 01:30, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

This might be related to the subject above (I see that my old talkpage was mentioned). I got a notification e-mail for my old talkpage ([[User talk:Yeltensic]]), saying that it had been edited by Dot com, but when I went there it was unchanged (I checked the history). Then, when I logged in as Granola, I got the "new messages" box, but that talkpage was also unchanged. {{User:Granola/sig}} 03:23, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Featured content of the day (or whenever) issue

I noticed that the trogdor 08 link to "watch" links to trogday.html, and not trogday08.html is this a known issue? ColdReactive 13:04, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

Fixed. — It's dot com 15:48, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

[edit] Discussions

There are a lot of talk page discussions happening on this wiki. The problem is, this wiki is not very active, so such discussions rarely get consensus and very few things get done. (That's why I'm always reviving old discussions with a phrase like "I still agree with this.") I think there should be some way to keep track of all the ongoing discussions. Maybe a [[HRWiki:Discussions]] page or something to keep these discussions from becoming inactive. e0uZ2kQ.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:37, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

I still agree with this. (See? That proves my point!) e0uZ2kQ.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 06:17, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
There's HRWiki:Open Discussions - not really active, but since it's directly linked from The Stick it could be revived easily. -- Bleu Ninja 21:40, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

[edit] February 21?

Why does the Main Page say that the newest Skills of an Artist was released on February 21 when it was released this month? 76.184.27.104 20:23, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

My bad. I probably copy-pasted it when updating and forgot to change the date. Thanks for bringing it to my attention~ --DorianGray 20:34, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

[edit] Two Questions

These two edits raise two questions concerning wiki standards.

See HRWiki talk:Standards → Linking to articles with disambiguation in the page title
and HRWiki talk:Standards → Retroactive names in transcripts

[edit] Some questions we would like to ask about...

Hi there, I'm a stranger who wants to ask you some questions.

1) When will ALL the old Flash pages turn to HTML5?

2) When are you going to UNBAN IP addresses who "committed" persistent vandalism?

3) If Flash is dead, are you going to cancel HomestarRunner.com ?

4) Why wouldn't we see ANY updates from 2011 to 2014?

5) Could y'all please tell us what email The Brothers Chaps have?

--83.185.35.154 18:37, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

1) We don't know. Ask the Brothers Chaps.
2) Never. Why should we?
3) You'll have to be more specific as to what that means exactly. We aren't involved with homestarrunner.com, so we can't take down someone else's website. And The Brothers Chaps are planning to give the site a HTML5 update, so they won't take it down.
4) Kids, creative burnout, side projects, etc. See HRWiki:Hiatuses for more details.
5) Their email address used to be brotherschaps@homestarrunner.com, but it was removed from the site's Email page, so it seems @StrongBadActual is now their primary contact method.
Hope this helps! e0uZ2kQ.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:33, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
Concerning the answer #2, why never? --83.185.35.154 22:50, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
To reduce the risk of a repeat offender. The Knights Who Say Ni 23:32, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
THAT repeat offender is way worse than CE5, aren't we right? --83.185.35.154 23:36, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
Look, I'm not sure what your issues are, but the simple truth is that the best thing for you to do is behave like someone who has never even heard the name "Maudi Algabban" (we are not fooled, we know who you are) and has literally zero curiosity about the name or the user's history, while also showing no particular interest toward all the things you show far too much interest over (such as the Pyongyang reference, the hiatuses, and the possibility of homestarrunner.com being taken down) and never, ever, even for a moment, even consider writing loud yelling, swearing posts demanding people unblock you and give you answers to questions we have no way of answering. Also, make constructive Wiki edits (that means not vandalism, with or without scare quotes), not just Talk page chatter. Basically, you need to start over completely and pretend you are not and were never you and do not care about you - and that doesn't mean to insult yourself, it means do not mention yourself. You've built up far too much bad karma, so it's very likely that even the slightest hint that you are you will be treated with immediate suspicion, and likely result in further blocks. And if you think this is unreasonable, perhaps what you really need to do is to find a way to end your obsession with this Wiki. You've been pulling these bizarre stunts for literal years. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 23:50, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
I must tell you all that I'm NOTHING but a stranger, but if you would like to send some ANGRY emails to him, his email address is -redacted- . Maudi MUST be punished and he's WAY the worst contributor on Homestar Runner Wiki! LET'S GET HIM!!!! --83.185.35.154 23:57, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

[edit] Netiquette w/r/t interviews on defunct sites

As I clean up various pages on the site I'm finding that many cited interviews and links are dead and gone.
