;How I found Homestar Runner:A couple of people were talking about it in a chat channel once, and someone posted a link to [[crazy cartoon]]. I watched it, and was both amused and confused... then I watched the latest [[Strong Bad Email]], which at the time was [[mile]] - having seen two [[PbTC]] toons in a row, I thought they just couldn't do flash well, even though it was kinda funny at times (though I didn't really get [[mile]] of course). Then I saw [[First Time Here?]], and watched [[A Jorb Well Done]] as it said to, another toon with relatively bad graphics, and which to this day I still don't find very funny. But then I watched all the [[Character Videos]], and some other SBEmails, and got hooked.

;How I found HRWiki:I was actually planning to make my own site very similar to this one (except not a wiki) - Transcripts, Inside References, etc... Then, on one 1 April 2005, I thought "Come on, this is the Internet, someone's surely done this already", hit Google and found this site. I signed up immediately.

==What a debate should be like==
+
-
In a debate, unlike an argument or a good old-fasioned yelling-at-each-other, both sides present their arguments clearly, and accept the other side's arguments graciously. There's debunking of arguments, sure, but no "omg how can u think that?? u sux!!" or anything of that sort. Plus both sides must be willing to change their viewpoint - steadfast stubborness is a bad thing to bring to a debate. I would like to thank [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] for this enjoyable debate about a [[HRWiki:STUFF/Archive/Commandos in the Classroom#And Knowing Is Half the Battle!|fun fact]] that was in [[STUFF]] at the time.

-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | I really think if it was a "knowing is half the battle" takeoff they would have ended the toon with the Commandos all saying together something like, "and information is the key to the universe"
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:blue">'''Phlip:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | not all the cartoons that had these segments did something like that
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:blue">'''Phlip:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | remember it's a parody of the whole genre, not just GI Joe
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:blue">'''Phlip:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | though it is mostly GI Joe
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | there again, we disagree. I think they would have been more blatantly GI Joe if they meant it more than "health class" video
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | *film
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:blue">'''Phlip:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | yeah, I see what you mean
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | to me, it would be like having a robot that looked like a humanoid version of a car and fought in an army against an army of humanoids versions of jets, and then they never transform
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | my plurals are messed up in that sentence
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:blue">'''Phlip:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | still, it's characters from a (parody of a) kids cartoon show doing a public service announcement - it's worth mentioning that the kids shows it's parodying did that too
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | so ignore that
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:blue">'''Phlip:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | agreed the content of that PSA is worded more like a health class video
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | you can't see me, but I'm making that face you make when you're trying to agree with another person but just aren't quite convinced
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | kinda like, ehhh, with the teeth together and the mouth spread
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:blue">'''Phlip:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | this is exactly why it took me this long to vote on the fact...
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:blue">'''Phlip:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | maybe it deserves a rewrite - make it less GI Joe-specific, and less definite (add "could be" or something)
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | I think that would cripple it as far as usefulness. I think the more GI Joe-specific things we find, the better, and the rest is periphery
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:blue">'''Phlip:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | hmm... I guess so
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | and only about 1 in 500 facts is a good "could be", in my estimation
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | although notice I did not say zero

-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | every now and then, we need a "could be" or a "may be"
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:blue">'''Phlip:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | how about "This episode is similar to the segments that many 90's childrens shows (including GI Joe) would inclde after their show"
+
-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:blue">'''Phlip:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | removes "based on" and replaces "and now you know" with something more recognisable to people like me who've never actually seen GI Joe

-

+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | see, I don't think it's like those at all

-
|-
+
-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | it's not preachy enough

-
| style="text-align: right;" valign="top" | <span style="color:darkred">'''Dot&nbsp;com:'''</span> || style="text-align: left" valign="top" | and Gunhaver comes across as a coach or (naturally) a drill sergeant

How I found Homestar Runner
A couple of people were talking about it in a chat channel once, and someone posted a link to crazy cartoon. I watched it, and was both amused and confused... then I watched the latest Strong Bad Email, which at the time was mile - having seen two PbTC toons in a row, I thought they just couldn't do flash well, even though it was kinda funny at times (though I didn't really get mile of course). Then I saw First Time Here?, and watched A Jorb Well Done as it said to, another toon with relatively bad graphics, and which to this day I still don't find very funny. But then I watched all the Character Videos, and some other SBEmails, and got hooked.
How I found HRWiki
I was actually planning to make my own site very similar to this one (except not a wiki) - Transcripts, Inside References, etc... Then, on one 1 April 2005, I thought "Come on, this is the Internet, someone's surely done this already", hit Google and found this site. I signed up immediately.
Shiny new website
http://www.mrphlip.com/ – Hosted by FellowSites... cheap, friendly, and I'm helping (in an admittedly small way) to keep the wiki alive. On the downside, I sound like an advertisement when I talk about it...
