Why weekly featured articles instead of daily featured articles? We're supposed to feature every article on the site - and we'll do it quicker with daily articles. User:60.230.37.94|60.230.37.94 06:53, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

''It has been [[HRWiki talk:Main page redesign|suggested]] that the Main Page be redesigned. Feel free to use [[HRWiki:Main page redesign|its project page]] for proposed redesigns.''
-
:Because not every article is up to snuff yet. Also, there is very little to write on some articles, especially [[:Category:Lists|list-based ones]]. Further, we'd probably run out fairly quickly if we did articles every day instead of every week. We only have about 1900. Even if we could find something to write on every article, we'd run out in about 5 years. And then what would we do? --[[User:DorianGray|DorianGray]] 06:59, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

== Flickering text/logo ==

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.")

-
:Currently there isn't.  The current template ({{tl|Podstar download}}) is just for creating external links in articles. Also, since podcasts are basically downloadable versions of existing content (and not exactly embedded media), I'm not sure if it's absolutely necessary to include a direct link, especially since both the [[Podstar Runner]] and toon pages would contain links. --[[User:Stux|Stux]] 20:50, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Where do you go to edit the recent toons template? If I can't, here is the problem:
+
Hi there, I'm a stranger who wants to ask you some questions.
-
Enviroment is listed as being posted "JANUARY 7, '''2007'''."

1) When will ALL the old Flash pages turn to HTML5?
-
-Sbemailnum314159

3) If Flash is dead, are you going to cancel HomestarRunner.com ?
-
==Unblock==
+
4) Why wouldn't we see ANY updates from 2011 to 2014?
-
Why isn't there an unblock template? People who think they have been unfairly blocked might want to ask to be unblocked. [[User:124.180.63.58|124.180.63.58]] 11:23, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
+
-
:Generally people in this position should post on a sysop's talk page - probably the sysop who blocked them - petitioning their block. Though, to be honest, I have seen very few blocks, if any at all, which have not been entirely reasonable. The few which were not were quickly corrected. {{User:Qermaq/sig}} 12:51, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

::Note also that, unlike at Wikipedia, our software is not set up to allow blocked users to edit their own talk pages.

 +
: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.

:::::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)

In IE7, I've noticed that when an image on the main page has a height of an odd number of pixels, the bottom portion of the border around it doesn't appear correctly.  The image appears to get shifted down a pixel and covers it.  I decided to try it in Firefox and the borders all appear fine.  But is there any way we can fix that for us die-hard IE users?  Still plenty of us around, you know...  {{User:OptimisticFool/sig}} 05:58, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

== One time anonnies - new template idea ==
+
-
 
+
-
I've noticed that a lot of times, anonomous edits get reverted and then the anonny never actually edits again. I am concerned that this is because the anonnies are turned off by their first edit being reverted, and don't come back. I feel like we might attract more users if they were somehow made to feel welcome. I therefore propose a template that says something to the effect of "thank you for your contributions, please don't get discouraged, i reverted your post because {{{1}}}, however new users are always appreciated etc." that the people who revert the anonnies can then subst on their talk page, just to let them know that we're not discouraging them. thoughts? {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 15:31, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

== Sewiously, you guys.  ''That'' is one ugly page. ==

The sightings pages--website, mostly, of course, but comics, too--are getting really out of hand.  Is it possible that we could break down pages into three separate ones: A-H, I-P, Q-Z, or something of the like?  Websites has 100+ (I believe; I know it's definitely 90+) different headings, and several of them have their own sub-headings, too.<br>
+
-
Obviously, the sightings lists which aren't pushing 32k should be left as they are, but, as the Wiki warns, it ''can'' be difficult to edit really long pages with certain browsers.  (Says the guy on the shared computer who can't change off of IE.)  --{{User:Onamuji/sig}} 15:52, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

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

[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. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:37, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

I still agree with this. (See? That proves my point!) Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 06:17, 15 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! 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 stuck at home (Talk) 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.

I disagree. YouTube is really more of a dumping ground for all the old Flash stuff that is still available on the site, but might not be should the Flash plug be pulled. And though I prefer to avoid YouTube, I don't think the Homestar Runner YouTube channel has been updated in months. Because YouTube is a place where absolutely nothing happens. I would mention that most new content is now posted on Twitter, but much of it doesn't qualify as full toons that demand full attention. (This may change, but not in the foreseeable future). -- 68.37.43.131 13:35, 26 January 2020 (UTC)
There actually is SOME original content on there, if you bother to look. ToaJuaraevo01 File:Homsar-in-motion.gif 04:12, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
What exactly do you mean "new content watchlist"? YouTube-exclusive content is already listed and documented in numerous places. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 07:38, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

[edit] Redesign

I was just looking at the HRWiki:Main page redesign, and it had something entitled, "On this day..." for H*R stuff that happened on that day in history. I like the idea of that, but when I looked on it, it had stuff for February 9th. Where I live, it's still February 8th. I know this wiki is centered around UTC, but it could be very confusing for someone who doesn't know that. -Minecraft lover147 04:50, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

[edit] Sick Homestar, BRAH

Why is homestar sick looking on the main page button? Found no other place to post this question --Jeffjman[2] 16:04, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

[edit] What's new correction

The "What's New" should have the Fan Costumes from Thanksgiving at the bottom. Wolf O'Donnel 03:52, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

I think whoever edited What's New last opted to take the Fan Costumes out instead, because the Halloween toon is a bigger, more significant update. The importance of updates should be considered alongside their recent,,,ness. A big toon should take priority over a short, and so on. --DorianGray 04:33, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
I did that. I was under the impression that the box was meant to primarily show the updates on the site's "what's new" button. The Halloween toon is there, while the Fan Costumes is not. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 04:37, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
A good rule of thumb is that we should list everything within the last month and anything that's still in the What's New button, and if we still have space to fill, we can include older things that you can actually watch, like toons. — It's dot com 14:07, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
