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

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. --JoeyDay 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. --JoeyDay 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?

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)

Where my ideas reallly that bad?

What's wrong the Different Town and Virus sections?

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
