[edit] sleeping

I'm not really good at writing articles and using code and all that, so I thought maybe someone else should make an article about characters sleeping? Just thougt i'd put that out there. --Acam30 23:02, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

I'm not so sure the instances of characters sleeping is all that notable. We expect that the characters sleep. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 23:12, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Wait a sneeze...

I swear that I saw something like a sketchbook of The Cheat in a Strong Badman Style (not the way that he was in real life with the mask and cape, I mean The Cheat's head on top of a human body) somewheres? But I can't find it! Does it even exist? - Alex H.

Never Mind! I found them! - Alex H.

[edit] Fast Forwards

Is it just me, or does it seem like we've recently taken to putting a note under fast forward every time a later reference is made, instead of just when there's an actual story element that reappears? Thoughts? — Defender1031*Talk 23:12, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Anyone? — Defender1031*Talk 22:20, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Animation for Yo Gabba Gabba?

While surfing wikipedia, I found that the page for the children's show Yo Gabba Gabba claims the TBC animated a segment for the show. Do we know anything about this? Thanks. --MrsCommanderson 23:49, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] New Podcast

Underlings is now up on the Podstar page. Can't edit the main page, so could someone please update it? User:Kerny Mantis 16:49, 28 February 2008 UTC

[edit] Non-sequitur toon

There's a new toon about Senor Cardgage saying something coherent. But I don't know how to add it to the wiki. What shoud I title the toon, or should I just mention it in the store page? Homestar-Winner (talk) 01:49, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Forum link

Why is there no link to the forum on the front page? - furrykef (Talk at me) 23:45, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

There's a link to the forum on every page, under "External Links", right below the link to the official site. — It's dot com 01:43, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Ahh, yes, on the MonoBook skin. I don't use MonoBook. ^^; - furrykef (Talk at me) 23:03, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
The Classic skin doesn't show any links except for those that are in the first section. See Wikipedia with the Classic skin and you'll notice that the "Interaction" section is missing. Just for you, though, I made it so that the lower links will show up when using that skin. — It's dot com 23:39, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
It doesn't really matter to me. ^^; I was just under the (now obviously false) impression that there wasn't a link on the front page for most users. - furrykef (Talk at me) 06:23, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] One time anonnies - new template idea

I've noticed that a lot of times, anonomous edits get reverted and then the anonny never actually edits again. I am concerned that this is because the anonnies are turned off by their first edit being reverted, and don't come back. I feel like we might attract more users if they were somehow made to feel welcome. I therefore propose a template that says something to the effect of "thank you for your contributions, please don't get discouraged, i reverted your post because {{{1}}}, however new users are always appreciated etc." that the people who revert the anonnies can then subst on their talk page, just to let them know that we're not discouraging them. thoughts? — Defender1031*Talk 15:31, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Instead of an impersonal template, why not just type something to that effect on their talk page? — It's dot com 15:52, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
well, either way it still leaves us with having to get people to star doing it. The point was to bring up my concern. And yes, you're right, a personal message would be good. The thing is making leaving such messages common wiki practice. — Defender1031*Talk 15:58, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Limozeen LIVE

I thought this would be a good place to mention that Limozeen will be appearing LIVE in Atlanta on March 27!

Impossible, given that 3 of the members are the same person. — Defender1031*Talk 22:43, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
Well, not impossible. But considering the frequency of Matt's voice on the site as of late (there would be no chance he could be rehearsing a band amidst the H*R work), and considering a quick search of Atlanta ticket broker websites shows no concerts at all on that Thursday, I'd call it highly improbable. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 23:02, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
Why would the anonny make it up? Yes, it would be nice if he'd provided a source for his info, but there's no reason to label it improbable at this point, and certainly not impossible. Matt may occasionally play all the characters, but that doesn't mean he's always played them all, or has to. — It's dot com 23:13, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
We should also keep an eye on this forum thread. — It's dot com 23:21, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
It's certainly possible. I mean, there have been live concerts for the Gorillaz and Dethklok, both of which are devoid of members who even exist. -DAGRON 23:24, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
Dot Com, to answer your initial query, anonny could be trolling. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 23:27, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
The anonny is actually from New Jersey and Google can't find anything. I don't think we need to bother with this. Loafing 23:28, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
Of course I considered that he might be trolling when I originally posted. Just seems like an ineffective way to troll 's all. — It's dot com 00:09, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
Frankly, the point of trolling is to titillate and amuse one's self. In this case, the PBS-style moderated discussion is probably annoying the anonny to tears, if I am indeed right. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:31, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

So it's true. I think you all owe the anonny an apology. — It's dot com 06:19, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry, anonny! Loafing 11:05, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
Oh what have I done? — Defender1031*Talk 13:57, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
At the risk of sounding smug, I have to point out that there was one other poster in this thread that didn't greet the anonny with instant dismissal. =D -DAGRON 11:51, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Category:Recurring Themes

Where can I further discuss the value that a category of "recurring theme" articles would have? I 1st heard of plans for that category in the talk page of Best/Worst X Ever. Bad Bad Guy 20:09, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

HRWiki talk:Standards is my first thought. Or wherever we discussed the running gags standard, if it's somewhere different from that page. — It's dot com 21:01, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
Category talk:Running Gags is where we first broke them down into their current subcategories. There's also small discussion about changing them to "-related", to further differ them. --DorianGray 21:15, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
You could try HRWiki:Running Gag... It's kinda dead, but it can be brought back to the realm of the living. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 21:18, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Name This Article

I thought about listing all the toons that contain 1 scene that differs for each viewer (kind of cool, Homestar's video, Marzipan's video, fan club, etc), but the best name I could think of was "Randomized Outcomes". No good? Bad Bad Guy 03:35, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Well, we already have Category:Toons with Dialogue Alternatives. I'm not sure there's enough to expand on there to make a whole article about. I think the category is enough. --DorianGray 04:36, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] new update

Homsarstrongbad150 21:41, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] videlectrix and thoraxcorp

Can wanything we do anything with these three pages?:

-TheThin 14:03, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, we can't wanything those pages. I think that first you need to tell us what "wanything" is. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 20:23, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
The Hallrunner questions are already contained on, and linked to on, the Hallrunner page. --DorianGray 21:20, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Sewiously, you guys. That is one ugly page.

The sightings pages--website, mostly, of course, but comics, too--are getting really out of hand. Is it possible that we could break down pages into three separate ones: A-H, I-P, Q-Z, or something of the like? Websites has 100+ (I believe; I know it's definitely 90+) different headings, and several of them have their own sub-headings, too.
Obviously, the sightings lists which aren't pushing 32k should be left as they are, but, as the Wiki warns, it can be difficult to edit really long pages with certain browsers. (Says the guy on the shared computer who can't change off of IE.) --Onamuji (b/w T. C.  ) 15:52, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] I finaly got it to work somehow

I am finally able to log in to my account and stay logged in, the only problem is the only way is threw a different computer

[edit] Featured article is...


Yes, I know how many rules I'm breaking by talking in all caps like that. Anyways, I emailed Karen Wagner about what media (if any) was permitted inside the premises of the bar or club or whatever. And, I got this lil' email in response.

I talked to Matt and as far as he knows the club has no policy banning the taping of performances.



So, let there be FILM! Or any digital cameras, cell phones, etc. - Strong Devon 23:59, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

I'm kinda' wonderin'...did ANYONE tape/take a video/pic of the concert? I believe it was tonight, right? Strong Devon 03:01, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

the only symptom is that it screws up the Homestar Runner Wiki. Then it makes everything look normal for a bit, and then it starts producing vaguely
