New... Game soon?

Telltale Games has just released a new teaser trailer for an upcoming game to be announced on 02 Sept:

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/exclusive-debut-untitled-telltale/703720?type=flv

A silhouette of Strong Bad can be clearly seen. Stay tuned for info... wbwolf (t | ed) 06:04, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Huh. That explains a lot. I guess we only have to wait four days for more info, if not the full game. At the end it said 9-2-2010, so... Thursday. We should finally see what's been going on Thurday. For now, the question remains: who are the other three he was posing with? One was definitely Max the rabbit, and another might have been Sam, from the same game. That leaves... The Heavy Weapons Guy from Team Fortress? Who knows? Anyway, let's check back next Thursday and see what all the commotion is up to.--Jellote wuz here 00:06, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
According to Kotaku, from left to right it's one of the guys from Penny Arcade, Max from Sam & Max, Heavy from Team Fortress 2, and, of course, Strong Bad. Based on the silhouette, there's been rumors that it's just a sequel to Telltale's poker game. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 00:11, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
Edit Conflict! Not to turn this into a forumy-style post, but the TellTale forum people have mainly decided that the four are Thycho from Penny Arcade, Max from Sam&Max, Heavy from Team Fortress Two, and Strong Bad from, well, duh. Since two of them are holding cards, it's speculated that it's a TellTale Texas Hold'em sequel. StrongAwesome 00:15, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
Hey, maybe after the game comes out this long period of inactivity will finally end! One can only hope.... 71.29.168.29 21:42, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

did it die

lets face it, there has been no updates in months. whats going on over there. did they just stop or are they working that hard on poker night at the inventory? please whats going on with our dear website that we worship?

TBC have been working on a few projects (baby, Poker Night at the Inventory, Jim Henson movie), so I would just be patient. They've hinted numerous times that they're not done yet. Also, this kind of thing should be posted in the forum. DENNIS T/C 01:46, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
Jim Henson movie? Whats that? Rondleman! Stuff I did.Talk. 02:40, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
Yessir. Here's the link. DENNIS T/C 03:17, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Do we have a "Experience the Fury of..." page?

It's a "phrase running gag" I believe, since it's been in more than one toon. 71.87.114.122 17:08, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Our policies say it has to be in at least three toons to merit a page. Honestly, that's one i've looked for too. Right now it is in two: theme park (thrice) and boring (really) (which i think was a direct reference back to theme park). The way I understand it, it would need to be in a third toon before we could create a page on it. The Knights Who Say Ni 17:56, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
See also: Talk:Experience the fury of. --DorianGray 20:01, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
Yes, we used to have a page of it. RickTommy (edits) 08:05, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

jayisgames mention

The website jayisgames.com has posted Peasants Quest on their front page as one of their "gems from the vault." I wasn't sure if this was frontpage worthy or not. --Shaggy | talk 07:25, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

It wouldn't go on the main page, but a section in Website Sightings would be a good place. --DorianGray 07:26, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

--Gotcha. I also noticed that on the games review page someone links to the walkthrough on hrwiki.--Shaggy | talk 07:29, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Redirect for <Article Name>s?

Just wondering, how do we do a no-pipe redirect again? for articles that we need to redirect from <ArticleName>s to just <ArticleName>. (Without using Move feature) ColdReactive 15:23, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Do you mean like this?
#REDIRECT [[''name of the target page'']]
DENNIS T/C 17:54, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
You don't need to manually create redirects for this... if the page name is "<something>s", and you make a link to [[<something>]] then the autopipe will handle it, and for vice-versa, if the page name is "<something>" and you want to make a link labelled "<something>s", then you can just use [[<something>]]s. --phlip TC 21:28, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
Nevermind! I misunderstood the question. What he said. DENNIS T/C 21:32, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
Apparently, the MediaWiki over at Aeria Games doesn't have autopipe :( So how do we do it then? For exa, when someone searches for Sharptooth Stone Ants, they get a search results page, rather than the page linked here. ColdReactive 19:07, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

In the "browse the knowledge base" thingy...

Should we have a link to The Brothers Chaps somewhere in the "browse the knowledge base" section on the Main Page? (most likely "miscellany") PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

Sure, that's not a bad idea. Maybe for the name of the link, "Real Life People"? doctorwho295 14 October 2010

Special pages

Special pages like Ancient Pages and Popular Pages only show mainspace articles. Is there a way of making them show articles from a different namespace? RickTommy (edits) 00:01, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

I don't believe there's a way to do so in MediaWiki without being an admin, if even at all. DENNIS T/C 19:56, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Halloween: Make it or break it?

Anyone else think that if the Brothers Chaps are gonna make a new cartoon this year it has to be for Halloween? — 88.193.42.92 (Talk | contribs) 13:37, 20 October 2010 (UTC) (left unsigned)

This kind of discussion would be better suited for the forum. DENNIS T/C 14:05, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
Though perhaps also better suited for the forum, I would just like to point out that TBC have put out a Halloween toon every single year since the year 2000, they've done Punkin Stencils every year since 2003, and Fan Costumes every year since 2003 (with one exception in 2004). Anyway, here's hoping! OptimisticFool 18:27, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Speculation 2

I know I proposed this idea in March and it got shot down, but I really feel we need to make a HR Wiki speculation page. The discussion above is happening way too often. We really need to get this thing off our chests. doctorwho295 22 October 2010

I don't really think there needs to be a speculation page, since we have a forum for that purpose. DENNIS T/C 02:18, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
Is there a page that addresses the hiatus? Huw 11:47, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
I understand your point DENNIS, but while most users understand that, it's the anonymous/new users that really need to be addressed. I think it's a rising issue that really needs to be addressed. doctorwho295 23 October 2010
What exactly is the difference between saying "Take it to the forum!" and "Take it to the speculation page!"? StrongAwesome 18:02, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
I agree with Strong Awesome. There is no difference, and that's why there is a forum. We don't need pages like that on a Knowledge base. A Forum is a Forum, and there's nothing wrong with it. --Record307 Talk/Contribs 21:56, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Hiatus page

I just posed the question above, but decided it's probably better as its own section. Does the HR Wiki have an article about the hiatus? If it does, I wasn't able to find it. If it doesn't, I suggest that one should be created. Huw 11:56, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

No it does not. But yes, I'd also like such an article to be created. This hiatus has gone on for a long time now, and has annoyed many fans (myself included), not so much the hiatus, but the fact that they gave no explanation about it. RickTommy (edits) 12:55, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
I may create one then, or at least the stub of one that can be further expanded. Given that there have been occasional (though much shorter) hiatuses in the past, I wonder what an appropriate title for the article would be? Hiatus of 2009-2010? (I trust it won't soon need to be renamed Hiatus of 2009-2011...) Huw 13:27, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
