Okay, this may seem weird, but should we put pictures of the younger ones on their pages? Like, Lil SB on SB's page, Teen Mad on SM's page, Lil Coach Z. Sort of. Catch my drift? [[User:Strong Intelligent|SI.com!]]

== Ready for Primetime ==

According to {{p|l={{FULLURL:Characters|diff=717992&oldid=717989}} these two}} {{p|l={{FULLURL:Characters|diff=718181&oldid=718180}} edits}}, Strong Mad's name doesn't belong adjacent to Ready for Primetime in that spot. Apparently we've decided against it. However, I can find no proof that this has been decided against (i'm probably not looking hard enough), and I believe that Strong Mad's name certainly belongs there. In order to prevent a further edit war, I would like to either see evidence to back up Jay's claim, or to open discussion on whether or not Strong Mad's name belongs there. And maybe both; seeing evidence isn't going to change my mind. {{User:The Knights Who Say Ni/sig}} 20:21, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

:Because Ready for Primetime is his own body. He's a self-sustaining character like Homestar or Eh! Steve!. {{User:MichaelXX2/sig}} 22:08, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
 
-
::no he's not. he's Strong Mad's head. If Strong Bad's name belongs beside [[Keyboard Strong Bad]] since he's based on Strong Bad, then Strong Mad's name belongs beside Ready for Primetime since he's based on Strong Mad. oh, and the [[DNA Evidence (running gag)|evidence]] was probably more important in my earlier post than the discussion part. {{User:The Knights Who Say Ni/sig}} 00:03, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
 
-
:::Frankly, I think you have it backward. I don't think we should have the "(Strong Bad)" next to Keyboard Strong Bad. We put them next to the alternate characters (Old-Timey and 20X6 and so forth), but I don't think they belong in other portions of the page. Now then, Ready for Primetime has Strong Mad's face, but it's not meant to be a counterpart to Strong Mad; after all, where's Homestar's counterpart? And exactly which character does Eh! Steve represent? --{{User:Jay/sig}} 04:55, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
 
-
::::There's nothing to suggest that all the characters need variations. Strong Bad was making it up as he went, and he found a way for himself to fit in to the crazy cartoon, and later on, for Strong Mad to fit in. So, based on what I've said so far, would you predict that I think The Wheelchair should have (Bubs) next to it, or not? i'm closer to being swayed than i was this afternoon, but there still hasn't been any evidence provided to strengthen the edit summary in the first link i posted. anyway, what exactly does the name in parentheses mean? I might have that wiki terminology incorrect. {{User:The Knights Who Say Ni/sig}} 06:12, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

== userboxes ==

Do you think there should be userboxes on all the characters' (including TBC) pages (except "This user" would be replaced with the character's name)? Just a suggestion. --{{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 23:44, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Why on earth does bands and companies on a '''CHARACTERS''' page? they are not characters and they cramp up the page! Should they have onother page? --[[User:Jfilesguy|that guy who is Jfiles]] 12:37, 21 June 2011 (UTC) June 2011
 
-
: I believe if any of the characters have contact with the bands/ characters in question, Like, Sloshy, for instance, they are characters. And they are also characters is they simply appear in cartoons and SBemails more then 2 or 3 times. [[User:Jibblejibblejibble|Jibblejibblejibble]]

== A good idea ==
 
-
 
-
I thought of a pretty good idea to help Homestar Runner fans' knowledge get better. Maybe we should add the first time a main character '''spoke''' in a cartoon. If you don't like that idea, never mind. I thought it would help people's knowledge. After all, this IS a knowledge base.--[[Special:Contributions/90.203.153.27|90.203.153.27]] 18:33, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

:What are some notable times that this is different from their first appearance? Besides the Poopsmith (which of course we note), none spring to mind. — [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 23:16, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

::Didn't bubs and the KOT appear in a background somewhere before actually becoming main characters? I also seem to recall marzipan not originally having a voice... {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 23:45, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
 
-
:::Who cares about The Poopsmith? I just think a character's first speaking roll will make the wiki better and expand people's knowledge--[[Special:Contributions/90.203.153.27|90.203.153.27]] 15:44, 15 April 2016 (UTC)
 
-
::::It sounds like you want to add content for the sake of adding content; I see absolutely no benefit to the typical user the knowledge of when a character first spoke. It sounds like fluff that would be fine for a user subpage, but I really don't think it holds enough water to justify its addition to the Wiki. - {{User:Catjaz63/sig}} 20:27, 15 April 2016 (UTC)
 
-
:::::I think this is a good idea — though maybe not on it's own page. For example, on the page for [[Bubs]], we could mention under the bullet where his Filmography is listed that [[A Jumping Jack Contest]] was his first speaking role (off the top of my head, it could be wrong). Seems pretty useful to me.
 
-
:::::That said, I also think we should have a page for not-quite [[Character Relationships]], but I seem to be in the minority there. So take my opinion about what belongs on the wiki with a grain of salt, I guess. --{{User:Purple Wrench/sig}} 21:03, 15 April 2016 (UTC)
 
-
::::::The first few characters to appear in the Homestar body of work did so before sound was a factor, so the characters from the [[Original Book]] that have since spoken would be a few examples.
 
-
::::::I'd support the first speaking role as a bulletpoint under the debut. {{User:Mee/sig}} 23:41, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Should we include [[Large Bean]], [[Tucker Donaldson]], and [[Twelve-Times-A-Day Man]] on here? I mean, they ''are'' characters... {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 22:23, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
 
-
:Large Bean: <s>I mean, he's not even alive. He's just an attraction for Strong Bad's crappy haunted-type place.</s>
 
-
:Tucker Donaldson: I don't think Unseen Characters go here; they stay on their own page.
 
-
:12-Times-A-Day Man: Yeah, he goes under [[Characters#Other Alternates]].
 
-
:That's my two cents. - {{User:Catjaz63/sig}} 22:34, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

::Actually Large Bean goes on [[Characters#Pseudocharacters]]. - {{User:Catjaz63/sig}} 22:37, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

:::Wha' 'bout [[The Bug]], [[The Mountain Goat]], [[Pazquel]], [[Von Blaubloods]], and maybe the [[Turtle]]? {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 02:18, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

:::::::I added an "Animals" section. And maybe some more: [[Edgar]],  [[strong badathlon|Laconic]] (PBTC), [[Fish Eye Lens|"Your Mom"]] (PBTC), and [[PhoneTime XL8]] ([[Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 17.2|pseudocharacter]])? {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}}

== Atari Marzipan ==
 
-
 
-
I don't think Atari Marzipan should be here. She doesn't have a page, whereas [[Atari Homestar]] and [[Atari Strong Bad]], who are also listed, do have pages. If we include her, we might as well include the [[Retro Gaming Character Variations|rest of the Atari characters]] as well. {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 05:20, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
 
-
:Why are Atari Homestar and Atari Strong Bad singled out? Each of their articles consist of all of five sentences. They have more appearances than the other Atari versions, but are they really separate characters? Since we have the retro gaming variations page, I'd be fine with leaving them off here. That or we should list them all. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 15:44, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

== [[Minor Character Variations]] ==
 
-
 
-
So far, 4 out of 19 minor character variations pages are listed here. Highschool, middle school, Free Petry Dish, and Xeriouxly Forxe. Why those in particular? Should we remove them? Or include all the minor character variations? Or decide which ones should be here and which shouldn't? {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 04:43, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
 
-
:There's a link to it at the bottom of the page, so I think they can be removed. {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 05:06, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
