Forum Registration

Hey, for a while now I've wanted to be able to join the HRWiki forum, but I've looked high and low and I've not been able to find a way to do that. Is this another thing you have to send via email, or what? Lira (talk) 15:03, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Yup! - Catjaz63 18:35, 2 April 2016 (UTC)


Whenever I go to a page's history and click on "Compare selected revisions", it says I have to download it. Is there some way for me to compare two versions of a page easily without having to download anything? hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:55, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

I don't experience that. Please list the exact steps you are taking, as well as your browser and OS. — It's dot com 23:01, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm using Google Chrome. What I do is I go to a page, click history, and click the "Compare selected revisions" button, and then a pop-up appears that says to name the file that I'm downloading. Then I just click that "X" in the corner to close the box. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:05, 15 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm also using Google Chrome and I cannot replicate this. My first recommendation is to check your browser and/or machine for malware, but that's unlikely. - Catjaz63 01:37, 15 April 2016 (UTC)
I fixed it! I got a new computer, but the problem was still there. And it worked whenever I logged out, so I knew it was a problem with my account. I went through my preferences and found out that the "Use external diff by default (for experts only, needs special settings on your computer)" box was checked for the last few years. I unchecked the box, and now I can compare edits! I shoulda done this like a million years ago! hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 04:47, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Jam parsing glitch

I wanted to check if there was a page about jam (of course there isn't — not even a redirect page with that name), but when I typed "jam" into the search bar, it brought me here. If I had typed "James", that would make sense, but I only typed "jam". What's more, if I type [[jam]], the href points to the James article before I even click on it, like so. Is there some kind of server-side string replacement going on here? -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 14:46, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

That is odd. What if you create the page? TheThin 15:11, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
Norwegian deals, it worked! But this kinda thing could still happen with other pages. For example, while it would make sense for "Jame" to redirect to "James", there is no redirect page for it, so the same glitch happens. How do we know it isn't happening with other words? -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 15:43, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
This is a side effect of autopipe. It's testing whether we have a page of the plural, but it can't discern that "james" is not a valid plural for "jam", only that the page James exists. It tries both "s" and "es" suffixes (and if the word ends in "y", "ies"):
  • "word" → "words" → "wordes"
  • "box" → "boxs" → "boxes"
  • "monkey" → "monkeys" → "monkeyes" → "monkeies"
  • "army" → "armys" → "armyes" → "armies"
In all of those groups, only one is the correct plural, but the function tries to match them all. — It's dot com 16:44, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Happy Cheatday?

Today is my 26th Birthday. I think we aught to do something to acknowledge users' birthdays. Like "It's Dot Com!'s" birthday. He's my favorite user.... ToaJuaraevo01 File:Homsar-in-motion.gif 17:39, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Well it's also my birthday. But, I really don't see the reason for this or where it would be placed. - Catjaz63 17:52, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Brainkrieg, not Brainkreig

The listing for the Brainkrieg shirt is not correct. It is BRAINKRIEG, not Brainkreig. Could someone correct it, please?—Bde1982 14:06, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for letting us know~ --DorianGray 14:13, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
You're welcome. Have a nice day.—Bde1982 14:28, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Halloween main page

Since Halloween is coming, can we change the wiki into the ween theme? -- 14:52, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Is it even time? We usually don't changes the styles for two or three more weeks. Putting up the decorations now would be the earliest we've done it by far, but I'll do it if that's the consensus. — It's dot com 17:22, 6 October 2016 (UTC)


So... homestarrunnerdotcom has an official Google+ page. It's linked to from their YouTube account. Just pointing this out. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 02:51, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

During the time that the YouTube page was created, you had to link your YouTube account to a Google+ profile or it made a Google+ profile for you out of your YouTube account. Nothing unusual or strange, just the YouTube page but the Google+ auto-created page. - Catjaz63 03:28, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

New content! sorta.

This. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:22, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Updated Main Page

Sorry 'bout all dese talk page posts, but... @StrongBadActual isn't linked to anywhere on the Main Page. And neither is YouTube, which has replaced FeedBurner on the NavBar. There's also a bunch of empty space beneath the "Miscellany" secion. There's at least 4 things we can do with that empty space:

  1. Put Strong Bad's latest tweets there, a-like so.
  2. Put featured article "reruns" there. Like this type.
  3. Bring back featured articles. There are as many active users now as there were back then, and over 300 unused drafts.
  4. Just... {sigh} leave it how it is.

So... hey, sysops? Ya think we should do these things? hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 00:26, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello? hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 02:48, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
We should probably fill that big gap on the left. I don't hate the Twitter idea, although really the whole main page needs a complete overhaul. — It's dot com 04:29, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
Yeah. We should also change it back to what it is before Halloween came. So, recap: Tweets will be in the main page, So does the featured article, and leave it how it is. So, CAN WE DO IT PLZ? :) -- 18:40, 3 November 2016 (UTC)
We don't change back for at least a week after Halloween. There may still be a costume commentary toon to come. — It's dot com 19:16, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

The old fanstuff wiki

Can I ask why the old Fanstuff Wiki has been closed? I know there's a second one but I'm just curious -- 20:45, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

The overall quality became increasingly poor to the point that we didn't want to host it anymore. While there were a few good things about it, it was largely a playground devoid of much substance. We tried to cut out most of the tired memes and drivel and start anew, but eventually even that became more trouble than it was worth. — It's dot com 20:55, 10 November 2016 (UTC)
Dude, are you kidding me?! The fanstuff was pretty cool and so was the art and little mini-games. -- 16:26, 14 November 2016 (UTC)
If you say so. — It's dot com 17:14, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

Main Page Glitch?

How come the pages are all back to normal colors and style, but the icon in the top-left corner is still Halloween themed? Is this happening to anyone else, or is it just me? Mml554 boo

Yeah, that's the case for me too. I seem to remember there was a brief time when the icon was normal type. Is it a mistake, or is it because of Fan Costumes 2016 besing released? Lira (talk) 22:03, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
I was waiting to change back from Halloween until after the fan costumes toon was released. I eventually gave up waiting, but then two days later they finally released the toon. Rather than change the whole theme back, I just put the Halloween logo back up for a few more days. — It's dot com 01:48, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
I also saw that the content of the day is showing both the fan costumes and the Thanksgiving toons. Should this be changed/fixed? Mml554 boo
It's intentional. Fan costumes have been up less than a week but today is Thanksgiving. I decided not to have to choose between them. — It's dot com 14:30, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
Clicking the snowflakes bring you to a random page; this makes me happy Mml554 boo

Deleted envelope since late 2015

Hi there! We detected that one letter saying "The Brothers Chaps" was removed, and we really want to know why they did this. We went to and detected it. Can anyone please tell us why? -- 22:26, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Because TBC decided to change it. That's really all anyone here knows, and really all that matters. — Defender1031*Talk 22:39, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

New Year logo

How did you get Homestar Runner to say 'Happy New Year'? Did you like, take some lines out of toons or did you get some Homestar Runner impressionists to say it? -- 22:09, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

April Fools logo

[1] You forgot that April Fools logo when Homestar says 'Umm what's going on here?'-- 15:40, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
