[edit] Category

Now that we have 4 toons that have a widescreen format, it would seem to me that would be the sort of thing that we can make a category for. This a special type of toon, similar to how we use Category:YouTube, and very specific, out of the sheer number of the toons on the site. wbwolf (t | ed) 19:27, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

And to those making this page, you do realize you can have the page elements on the category page, this way we don't need an "Appearances" section. ColdReactive 20:17, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Aspect ratio

For what it's worth, the aspect ratio of most H*R toons is not 4:3, it's 11:8 (550×400). — It's dot com 19:38, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

[edit] YouTube

With Flash dying and YouTube exclusive content being what they're releasing more and more, I'm not sure it really makes sense to list YouTube videos, since YouTube expects widescreen videos by default. In fact, I'd be more interested in the YouTube exclusives that DON'T use widescreen. — Defender1031*Talk 16:52, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

I agree that it's not quite as notable, but it's still widescreen Homestar content, and I think it belongs on this page. Not to mention, most "normal" YouTube toons (like Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 17.2 or Mr. Poofers Must Die) aren't widescreen. Maybe there could be a separate section for YouTube/Kickstarter stuff. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 19:28, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
I was going to make my own talk post about this but then remembered this one existed. I agree with Defender; I think the scope of this page ought to be limited to Flash toons that are widescreen, otherwise we're kind of talking about a different thing. Whether Flash-animated YouTube exclusives like Stack 'Em to the Heavens! and Meeple Grove should count is open for debate. SRMX12 (talk) 18:07, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
I added a section for YouTube/Kickstarter stuff. I think that's a good compromise — it's still listed, but it doesn't interfere with the rest of the list. I still don't agree with removing them entirely. Even though they're becoming more common, it's still not the usual. And like I said before, only a few Flash-animated YouTube exclusives are widescreen, not all of them. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 18:58, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
