Ding! Thorax Corporation is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.

I really think we need to extend this page. We should transcript every page and give this it's own category. Maybe it should be the next big project we do after Peasant's Quest is done.-----User:RatherAnnoying

What about the profanity though? There are usages of "What the h*ll" and "a**" on Thorax Corp. This violates the profanity margins of the H*R Wiki. --Ian911299

Hm... good point. Hell isn't such a big deal, seeing as it's been said before in the HSR universe. I think that a** isn't that big of a deal. If it's been said by TBC, it's ok on the wiki, I think. — talk Bubsty edits 00:30, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
Except that transcribing every page would then bring up the same copyright concerns as we had before. Since the page is mostly text, it's just a simple copy-paste, unlike writing a transcript for a 'toon. See also: Talk:Strong Sad's Lament. --DorianGray
It's not "hell" alone that's a problem. It's when it's being used as an exclamation. THAT doesn't appear in the H*R universe. And as DorianGray mentioned, the copyright concerns are a problem, so overall, I think that we shouldn't transcribe Thorax Corp. --Ian911299
Oh, and I also saw usage of "p*ss" on Thorax. --Ian911299
Hm... you have a point. This may not have appropriate language, and there can be copyright problems. All the same, it wouldnt be the wiki way if we didn't transcribe it. Perhaps we ask TBC if we could transcribe it and censor out the bad words.... Never mind. I'm not very good at this kinda thing. (Especially since I'm only 12). — talk Bubsty edits 00:50, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
I'm not very good at it either. Is there anyone here who IS good at this type of stuff? --Ian911299
Hmmm... maybe we could discuss this on the forum with the others. --Ian911299
  • spits out coffee* Bubsty's only 12??!?!?!!?! Anyway, we could just put a warning on it, and do what we did on this page. SaltyTalk! 05:39, 23 December 2005 (UTC)
    • Hey! That's a pretty good idea! However, the copyright stuff is still an issue. --Ian911299
      • Well, we could also put one o' these: {{Template:web-screenshot}} except change it from screenshot to.... page. SaltyTalk! 06:11, 24 December 2005 (UTC)
        • I'm not sure that'd fall under fair use, though, even with the template. It's only fair use if it doesn't replace the actual site. --DorianGray

This site doens't fall under the domain The one page we have is sufficient. — It's dot com 06:20, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Yeah, the page we already have is enough. We really don't need more. — Ian911299


Gent Identity

Who knows who Gent really is? Is he Matt or Mike? Is he someone famous? Who is this blurred man? Deos anyone know? I'm really curious. Chess Cheese

Actually, to me it looks a lot like Matthew Perry. But then again I'm just a weirdo. Einoo 22:59, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Domain Business?

Where does it say Thorax Corp is a domain name business? It looks like it's only for stardome issues. (Of course, the site is full of links. It's not easy finding them all.)

So... uhhh... why won't anyone answer? THS Cheesia 19:25, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Probably because, so far at least, no one knows the answer off the top of their head, and they're not willing to go look for it. Stop yelling. — It's dot com 19:33, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Why is his image a broken JPEG? Dagoth 06:27, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Why not? It's kinda funny. --DorianGray 06:30, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Am I doing this right?

Okay, before I go too far and before all the hard work I've been doing goes to waste, I'm restructuring to get all external links in with some alt attribute values thrown in. Is this good so far? Is this necessary? All of these are there real values, since you're probably wondering.

NOTE: The "Alternate Text" details are found the HTML code. They specify what text to show if the image cannot load. This is required for images by the W3C. Examples of alternate text in action are found on the navigation buttons (if they were non-existent images), and Leg Delabor's photo is an actual example.

Oh yeah, and I remembered there was some article that had a bunch of external links organized in columns with page titles...anyone remember what that one was I thought it was? I thought it was The King of Town DVD or Yearbook, but that isn't it. -- 00:07, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
