[edit] The name of the game

Sooo... Is this article about the Easter egg or the comics produced using the Easter egg? It seems that the name of the Easter egg would be "Make-O Your Own Stinko", while the comics are called "Stinkoman Sunday Fun Talk". This article reads as if it's about the Easter egg, so I suggest we move it to Make-O Your Own StinkoLoafing 05:44, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, it looks like that. Move. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 11:38, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
Agree. Danny Lilithborne 22:20, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

I think both names are fine and either one applies. You can't have the comic without the tool, and the tool is pointless without the web comic result. I see them as two sides of the same coin. If TBC feature a gallery, maybe they'll clarify the name. I lean toward leaving it "Stinkoman Sunday Fun Talk" for now. — It's dot com 04:27, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure I believe that "Make-O Your Own Stinko" is the name of the comic generator — what if it's just the page title? That's what it sounds like to me, at least — one of the little page titles TBC put on their toons/games that doesn't quite correspond to the toon/game name. So, I lean toward keeping the article at the the name of the comic strip as well. Trey56 04:31, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
I lean in Trey's direction. Neither title is really definitive: one is a page title and thus would generally be given less weight than a title "within the frame", so to speak, while the other seems to apply to the finished product rather than the entire process.

Update: The newly added title screen confirms the name as "Make-O Your Own Stinko", at the very least. --DorianGray 07:20, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

The name actually is "Make-o Your Own Stinko(Man)"... Im a bell 18:17, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Anyone realized that "Make-o your own Stinko" resembles "Drink-o some Malinko"? -20eric06 logged off

Check the section a few lines down for the only other person who does. --DorianGray 21:06, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Example comic

ERROR IN IMAGE: "YOUR" should be "YOU'RE" "They're as different as night and day. Don't you think that night and day are different? What's wrong with you?"

I'm not sure the comic image should be there at all. --DorianGray 18:42, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
I think it was intentional. --Trogga 18:45, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
It's fanstuff. Away it goes. Loafing 19:00, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
But shouldn't we have an example of a stinkocomic? --Trogga 19:04, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
The problem with that is that people would fight over the image. "Mine is funnier!" "No, I want mine to go on the page!" --DorianGray 19:08, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
I'm hoping for some appearance of a comic in an official H*R feature, like a Hairstyle Runner-esque gallery or a Weekly Fanstuff... then we'll have something more official and neutral that we can include on this page. Trey56 21:49, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
I've posted something non-competitive and descriptive. Perhaps it will do. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:57, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
I think I love you.--The4swordImage:The4swordssigpicisbetterthanyours.PNG 01:56, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
Make-O Your Own Stinko!

I think Qermaq's idea of having an example comic that's taken from elements of the wiki is a good idea, but I wondered to myself if there was a way it could be done from the article space rather than the talk space. I think the result I came up with is neutral, informative, and representative of the game's various features. — It's dot com 04:01, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

If we're going to have a fan-made comic in the article, this is my favorite one so far: I like that it uses the four panels to inform about the features of the comic generator, which is the purpose of this page, anyhow. If TBC post any fan-made strips through Weekly Fanstuff or the like, I think we should consider updating the image, though. But who knows if that'll ever happen. Nice work! Trey56 04:09, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
Should have a comma in the sentence "I wanna be the guy, too!" Oh, well. We can't all be "the guy"! Ha ha. Ooh, I just realized it's wrong in the transcript of japanese cartoon, too. I'll fix that. OptimisticFool 04:23, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
I'm usually not much of a fan of the comma in phrases with "too". It breaks up the flow of the sentence. — It's dot com 19:11, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

You think we should have it mention you being able to MS Paint your way through several different non-punchlines, since that feature was added? If you agree, I already have a comic made. - Young Roy

[edit] TBC do read the wiki

This is proof! Look at all the piled up Stinkocomics on the Fanstuff Wiki! They DO read it! So parodic! I mean yeah, veryone on the fanstuff is feeling insulted I bet. --Grapefruit Polisher the 2nd — 70.108.46.178 (Talk | contribs) 18:12, 10 October 2007 (left unsigned)

Not half as insulted as TBC, I bet, at the veritible mutilation of their characters. — It's dot com 19:08, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
If everyone on the fanstuff wiki is feeling insulted about this email, I haven't heard about it yet. I believe the reaction was more like "Sweet! Official Pan Pan sprite!" Shwoo 08:27, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Drink...o?

Could the page title be a reference to Drinko some Malinko! Bad Bad Guy 21:13, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Do you suppose "Make-O your own Stinko" is a reference to "Drink-o some Malinko" in that one strong bad email? --Abelhawk 17:58, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Nah, I think it's just a coincidence that they both end in o. — Defender1031*Talk 18:01, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
I agree that this should be mentioned as a reference to the Malinko line. If something as vague as "..." can be listed as a reference to under construction, I think this qualifies. I bring the total to 4 people who think so, even if our comments didn't all make it into the section... LikeAsItself 18:37, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
"..." was clearly used there, here it's just two things that rhyme, also, each discussion is its own, "..." is in no way similar to this, and therefore should not be compared. — Defender1031*Talk 18:39, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
People seem to be feeling pretty strongly about this; I have a feeling it's going to make it to STUFF. I say it's not a reference. I agree with DeFender1031; it's just a rhyme of some words ending in o. Coincidence. OptimisticFool 20:22, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
It's not just that Stinko and Malinko both end in o, the similarity is in the fact that both were made into phrases with the same structure. Both are imperative sentences which start with a verb, to which an o has been added to mirror the final o, and both go {verb} {adj./adv.} {noun}. They're almost completely parallel. Also, thanks for compiling this all into one category. And on a completely unrelated note, I notice that the "..." reference has now been removed. This is a really volatile business when we don't take votes on each fact. LikeAsItself 21:34, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
It seems it's actually a reference to "Make-a Your Own Pumpakin", which has been the page title of the Punkin Stencils page since 2004 (according to the Wayback Machine). Do we add the reference? OptimisticFool 06:26, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Updates

On or around October 15, this page underwent some additions. A few extra enemies (ones from Level 9) were added, along with the Stinkowing. As well, it looks like stars were added to the Level 5 background (making it more like the scrolling shooter games menu screen). Also added were the ability to MS Paint your way to a non-punchline (a new button, which adds poor MS Paint to the panel. Five different scribbles in all, including one of Trogdor). Another addition was the "Name" button, which lets you alter the byline from "Stonk Bad" to anything you want to type in. Upon viewing the comic, two other changes can be noticed: an addition of "Totally Not" in front of the copyright date, and the byline is altered and randomised, with phrases like "ripped off", "poorly concieved", and "baby got stole". Finally, a title screen was added, cementing the name as (at least) Make-o Your Own Stinko(man) Sprite Comic Generator. I'm not sure how much of that to move the page to, however. --DorianGray 06:34, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Load Bearer

I thought that was a reference to "load bearing" bosses that destroy the fort/castle/dungeon when you kill them.

Off topic, but for crying out loud, could the image code be any more indecipherable?

With the "Find the" in front of it, it's clearly a ref to the more-recent slumber party game. --DorianGray 20:14, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] MS paint

one of the ms paint things remind me of kilroy was here

[edit] New Game

the toon catagory says that the toon is un catagrized, but it is now a new game. since i can't edit the toon catagory, can some one tell me how to?

There, how's that look? --DorianGray 12:43, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
Grood, i mean good! good and great! or maby just great!

[edit] Depth Button?

Does anyone know if they depth button in the sprites menu does anything? It seems to me to be pretty useless. --Happypasta 19:43, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

It determines whether the sprite appears in front of or behind other sprites. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 19:45, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Flipping an image

Being a math major, I just noticed something about this game: when it gives you the option to flip the image, "X" flips it about the Y axis (i.e. faces the other way), and "Y" flips it about the X axis (i.e. turns it upside down). In my field, this is counter-intuitive. Is this a notable remark? The Knights Who Say Ni 05:02, 9 August 2012 (UTC) (edited 19:13, 9 August 2012 (UTC))

Pressing X, for instance, flips it about the Y axis, but it flips it along the X axis, which is just as good a way of describing the transform (in fact, it's more relevant when you start talking about actually building the transform, computer-graphics side, or if you start talking about 3D stuff)... I for one find pressing X to do a horizontal flip to be entirely intuitive. --phlip TC 12:55, 9 August 2012 (UTC)
