While doing some research on this guy, I found a link th this. [1]. It seems that Chad here seems to be an artist.

Seeing "Atlanta, GA" on the page would also fit the profile, in my mind. -- Tom 20:06, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Should we add an image of his art? Rogue Leader / (my talk) 20:12, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
No. -- Tom 20:16, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Should we say/acknowledge he's an artist? Rogue Leader / (my talk) 20:19, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I think that what we sould do is contact him and ask him in what part in partucular was he involved in MLS. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 20:32, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I just asked TBC. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 20:36, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I think we're more likely to get a response from him than from TBC. -- mibluvr13dígame 20:37, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

We don't know how to contact him. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 20:40, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

You could contact him through Wonder Studios at info@wonderstudios.com. — Lapper (talk) 05:18, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

I remember there was a rumor back in the day that MLS and AJJC were removed from the site due to his involvement (despite the fact that he was never credited in the latter). I'm guessing that's just unlikely speculation? --JohnnyLurg 07:43, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Is Triumphant Tools cancelled?

[edit] Jumping Jack Contest Credit

I just noticed at the end of the booklet included with the DVD, when listing out all the writing credits, under A Jumping Jack Contest it says "Based on a story idea by Chad Eikhoff". I bring it up because he also wrote Marshmallow's Last Stand, & it just so happens the only two toons he's ever credited with working on are the ones that were pulled off for reasons that nobody can discuss. I double checked with the original Vol. 2 DVD & it says it there, too, so now I'm wondering is this like some **** * *** situation where I'll be disappeared by the HRWKGB for bringing this up? It's just weird that this, of all wikis, could possibly miss a detail like that for so long. -- nachobra 02:40, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

If you're referring to a booklet that came with the 3-disc set, "so long" has been basically "this last week", regarding information that's easy to overlook. The 3-disc set only just came out, and I don't recall getting a booklet with any of my Anything Else DVDs. And this is a Wiki. Be bold. The situation you mention is a special case. --Jay (Talk) 04:46, 3 April 2021 (UTC)
PS. You mention it being on the original volume 2, and maybe it is (mine is not in an easy-to-access location right now). Still easily overlooked. --Jay (Talk) 04:48, 3 April 2021 (UTC)
all’s I’m saying is that you guys will point out when like a character’s arm detaches for one frame or how a blank space in the strong bad sings toon is a unique font, but this one piece of info that has been sitting on a dvd I’ve had since 2006, nobody ever noticed or cared to document it. I’m not tryna be like “what a bunch of IDIOTS” I just think it’s amusing is all. -- nachobra 07:02, 3 April 2021 (UTC)
Hi Nachobra, please be aware that not everyone has purchased the DVDs and so there are fewer eyes that cover these things compared to details on the website. Since you do have the booklet in question, please feel free to add the fact to this page. Everyone here usually behaves civilly and simply strives to improve the wiki even with simple oversights. --Stux 16:05, 3 April 2021 (UTC)
Hi Stux! I'm failing to understand the last sentence in your message, as a non-sequitur I'm not sure what it's referring to and would like you to clarify it, please. Thank you! -Svetlana 00:48, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
I know I'm months late but I've been cleaning up Real People articles and wanted to jump in. The original release of "Everything Else, Vol 2" does indeed read:
all cartoons written by mike and matt except [...]
marshmallow's last stand
written by mike and matt chapman and chad eikoff
a jumping jack contest
written by mike and matt chapman
based on a story idea by chad eikoff
So you're right! Anyways it seems like you're bringing up two different things in your post.
  • 1. Did the wiki miss that Eikoff should have a "story by" credit on 'A Jumping Jack Contest' for almost 15 years? Yes, it looks like it! Things fall through the cracks all the time - I myself only found confirmation that original Marzi-Mei was a reference to Sailor Moon this year, after ~15 years of the question remaining open. Especially since this is only a small note on physical media when the body of work is primarily digital it's reasonable to see how it could've slipped by. But this is something you could add without opening a talk page (or if you're concerned, Be Bold and make the update and then make a talk post).
  • 2. Both of the toons Eikoff worked on are not on the site. Is this notable? It may be notable in a vague way if simply stated as fact. You may guess that Eikoff is involved in the "personal reason" why TBC "can't disclose why they're off" - but at the end of the day that's all it is, a guess - so the article should only state his supporting credits rather than theories about other connections or motive. The fact that Eikoff's HRWiki page is up and unlocked, and that he is still credited on a 2021 release is a sign that there is nothing limiting a discussion of his past involvement. Contrast how the WSWN article is semi-protected and has a notice on the talk page. -- Bleu Ninja 19:38, 5 October 2021 (UTC)
