Ding! What are you supposed to be? 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 know Wikipedia is prone to long article titles such as this, but can we shorten it to something like Costume confusion or something like that? — Lapper (talk) 20:53, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

Let's get a group consensus, but I just couldn't think of anything else to call it. I like your suggestion. I R F 20:57, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
Or, if we keep the title, it at least needs a question mark. --DorianGray
I don't think you can have one in a URL, but i could be wrong I R F 21:04, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
You can have one in a wiki title, which will translate to some sort of code when put in a URL. See: How Do You Type With Boxing Gloves On? --DorianGray
Right. Definitely with the question mark. — It's dot com 21:19, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

Finished all the Wikipedia links, added Sketchbook (museum) and de-stubed. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 08:16, 5 November 2005 (UTC)


Are you sure this article is "featured" material? It's very well written, but the article is sort of a stretch as it is, let alone to be the featured article. Maybe I'm just crazy. Darth Katana X (discussionitem_icon.gif user.gif mail_icon.gif) 07:57, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

I think in some ways the fact that it's on a somewhat obscure element of the Halloween cartoons (which is nonetheless a constantly recurring theme in them) may have helped in be chosen as a feature: while our norm is to feature articles that document major themes, we like to show the obscure stuff, too. When I supported this article, my reasoning was that it sets up Halloween by introducing a recurring theme in Halloween cartoons. Heimstern Läufer 14:40, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
Hmmm, seems like a pretty good idea. This is just sort of a fun page anyway. Or maybe I just think that because I dreamed that I said it last night. Man, I need to get a life. Darth Katana X (discussionitem_icon.gif user.gif mail_icon.gif) 23:18, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

I think it's fine. — Defender1031*Talk 17:32, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
Also, look above, the idea for a shorter name was proposed and never got any support. — Defender1031*Talk 17:34, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

oh. now that i read it, that other name sounds better. Slipknot6477 17:37, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

I think "Who are you supposed to be?" could be a better name. Homestar-Winner (talk) 17:40, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
I agree with Homestar. The other name from above is just bleh, but Who are you supposed to be? is good. — Defender1031*Talk 17:47, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
Who are you supposed to be? doesn't really cover when characters dress up as something other than a person or think that someone dressed up as someone other than a person. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 20:05, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
