Would it be feasable to add small 'gallary format' pictures beside some of the character categories, as seen on such pages as [[Toilets]] and [[The Cheat's Head Exploding]]? It might help in the quest to clean up this page a bit. {{User:Thunderbird L17/Siggie}} 22:39, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Okay. Rejects only has like 3 things to go in it, so does it get its own page? Also, in the "Who?" section, there are a whole lot of "characters", so that would get its own page....right? -- AgentSeethroo 15:18, 16 Aug 2004 (MST)

Hmm. I'm looking at the page now... Yeah, I don't know. I don't think they need their own page if we are going to have the Cheat Commandos on this page too. I know there's those bands there too. We might want to do something with them. Or at least adjust the section heading level. And it sure seems like there's a lot on this page. I think furrykef has something in mind though. Whatcha up to, Kef? -- Tom 15:48, 16 Aug 2004 (MST)

I don't really have anything in mind. I just wanted to get the stuff indexed to make it easier to tell what's missing. - furrykef 09:14, 17 Aug 2004 (MST)

Arg. Okay...personally, I like the smallerer pages. They're less...big...and ugly. I dunno though...it may look too sparse if we split up the thing into lotsa pages... -- AgentSeethroo 10:15, 17 Aug 2004 (MST)

I think the rejects page was a good idea for all those "grey-area" characters places and things. But it seems to have been destroyed. What happened to it, and how was that decided upon? --Ogog

Oops. Please note that this conversation happened last August. Currently there are no more rejects. This was "decided upon" mostly here. -- Tom 19:38, 18 Jan 2005 (MST)

Pom Pom link

Can I fix that Pom Pom link? it's buggin' the snot outta me. -- AgentSeethroo 16:02, 19 Aug 2004 (MST)

Yeah, go ahead, I don't know what was going on there. -- Tom 16:20, 19 Aug 2004 (MST)

Character page official format

We need to come up with one. There's a lot of variation between the several character pages. I haven't followed the format for the few I did recently, simply because I couldn't see what the format should've been. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 10:17, 24 Aug 2004 (MST)

The format on Strong Bad and Homestar Runner seems fine to me. But I think we should limit each character page to one picture. -- InterruptorJones 10:47, 24 Aug 2004 (MST)
I kinda wanna just nuke the galleries, too. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 10:49, 24 Aug 2004 (MST)
You'll hear no complaints from me. -- InterruptorJones 10:53, 24 Aug 2004 (MST)

I want to know what happened to the halloween costume lists :) On the old wiki, each character had listed what they dressed up as each year for halloween.. It's been five years and TBC do not appear daunted in their love to painstakingly dress up the characters every year. Should the costume lists be added back on, nearby the 'aka' lists? MetaStar 02:11, 31 Oct 2004 (MST)

As a followup, even the halloween toon pages lack a breakdown of who dressed up as what. If noone else feels up to it, let me know it's allowed and I'll add tasteful lists both to the characters' pages and the 'ween pages. MetaStar 02:14, 31 Oct 2004 (MST)

Stickly Man

Please discuss in Talk:Stickly Man before editing Stickly Man's status as the 20x6 Poopsmith.

Brief descriptions?

I've added brief descriptions to the computers, similar to the links in the AKA section to the real characters represented by the 20x6 and 1936 crew. Are the brief descriptions of the computer appropriate on this page, adding to the usefulness of the information; or should we be trying to keep the size and scope of index pages to a minimum? Render

Character Heights

In the facts Strong Bad's computer analysis reveals that Strong Mad is 88 inches tall and 88 inches wide. Actually he's about 7.25% taller than he is wide. Anyway, I did a height comparison for all the characters based on Strong Mad's height being 88 inches, using The House That Gave Sucky Treats as a reference. Here's what I got:

CharacterHeight
Strong Mad7'4"
The Cheat3'0"
Marzipan7'4"
King of Town5'0"
Coach Z6'6"
Homestar6'8"
Homsar4'7"
Poopsmith7'5"
Pom Pom7'7"
Strong Bad5'5"
Strong Sad6'6"

Anyway the numbers were a little disappointing, as Strong Bad was indicated to be less than 4'0" tall in Strong Bad Is In Jail Cartoon, so I wasn't really sure if there was any way to incorporate this information into the site. I might run the numbers again using Strong Bad's height as 4'0" and see what I get.

Interesting calculations. I've dabbled in the height thing a bit myself. Check out the forum post. Of course, I think it would be rather difficult to come up with anything definite. -- Tom 20:07, 30 Sep 2004 (MST)
Another reference point for the character heights is that The Cheat is 1'2", as revealed in Where's The Cheat? --Paliosun 18:51, 17 Oct 2004 (MST)
Don't forget that Pom Pom's ID says he is 6'2" 67.161.224.65
The Cheat (sort of) puts Strong Mad as 6' in 'i she be'.
Dude, you have way to much free time. Get a hobby.
Nah, kudos go out to whoever did this -BazookaJoe 03:46, 9 Jul 2005 (UTC)
This is his hobby.

Where my ideas reallly that bad?

What's wrong the Different Town and Virus sections?

Simply put, they were all only seen once. --thatkidsam 18:43, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Character Evolution

Shouldn't there be a link to each character's Evolution on their character page? Seems like it should go in the bar at the bottom, but I don't know how to put it there. --Pianoplayerontheroof

Links in header lines

In my opinion, linking header lines is more convenient and less awkward than "Something is something something". --Trogga 16:07, 7 Mar 2005 (MST)

The Guys You Don't See Anymore

There are alot of old, un-named "characters" that have a one paragraph pages just for them. Can we just make a full, long page about all of those? they are Unnamed Girl, Homeschool Winner, The Unguraits, Dijjery-Doo, The Robot, the guys in the back of the arena and maybe Mr. Bland and Señor (as they appeared in flashback). We did it for Teen Girl Squad and The King of Town... E.L. Cool 12:21, 25 May 2005 (UTC)

Can someone please replay?? E.L. Cool 05:57, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I agree, unnamed characters it is! Template:Stongbah

Galleries

Would it be feasable to add small 'gallary format' pictures beside some of the character categories, as seen on such pages as Toilets and The Cheat's Head Exploding? It might help in the quest to clean up this page a bit. Thunderbird 22:39, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I tried it out on the Main Characters, and it seems the only problem might be people clicking on the pictures trying to reach the articles. Should we revert it and try something else, or do the same to the rest of the page? I'm voting for the latter. Thunderbird 22:48, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I think that looks fine. Is there a way to make the pictures link to a page, or is that the only way? But I really think it looks fine, I think if all of the other ones are like that, it would look alot cleaner--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 22:52, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Me too, but I'm curious about the picture link. Does anyone know if it's possible to link to the page instead? Thunderbird 22:53, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)
There's a way to link the pictures, but there's a lot of coding involved. I'm sure given time I could get it done if you want. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 22:54, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)
