I made it! I was the Where's an Egg man! And Movie Magic Man was one of the "terrible Homestar"s. Strong Vader 05:58, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Hey guys, congrats. Per precedent from last year, and also just per our careful standards of documentation, we need you to demonstrate some evidence that you are indeed the people in this toon before it can be in the article. For that reason, I've removed the following for the time being:

If you could provide some documentation that these are true, we can put 'em back real quick-like. You may notice I have not removed Monkeytender's. This is because he made this post at the forum in advance of this toon's release, which seems to corroborate his claim. Heimstern Läufer 11:01, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Well, as for Movie magic man's, I'm pretty sure that picture of him in the same costume as the one from the toon has been up on his wiki page for nearly a week now. The Wheelchair 14:53, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Go to the Telltale Games Forums. On there I am called The Highway, there's even a link to my User page on the wiki from my user name on the ttg forum. I started a thread called the official Halloween costumes thread, for people to post their costumes. I hope this I evident enough that I am on the costumes toon. EDIT: how about I post a message on the ttg drums stating that the picture is of I, open source Greg, and I will include a link to the thread. that is the thread. Check the last post, then please restore my name to the artcle. OpenSourceGreg 15:28, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

So, what do I have to do? Show you a screenshot of my email client with part of the image? What about a screenshot of the full screen of my email client with the image? What about the original image? And the fact that I had my picture of myself on my userpage, to which those could be compared. Is that enough? And the fact that the II in my Where's an Egg II background was cut off in order to fit on Strong Bad's projector screen? Strong Vader 16:55, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Yes, that's enough. For the record (i.e. for others who want to make a claim), screenshots of emails aren't that convincing, especially if you upload them after the fact, because they could easily be faked. More convincing is the file where you show the whole image that you sent. Alternate takes or angles or images where you show yourself putting the costume together would also be good. Ultimately the most convincing image for me is the picture you uploaded of yourself months ago. Can't really fake that. — It's dot com 18:09, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

The only way I can convince you that my costume is the garden boy costume is:

  1. I changed the link that says Strong Sad to Garden Boy, which leads to AWMPSCE
  2. I can upload the picture and put it on here, but I've never uploaded a picture before

See Help:Image and Special:Upload. We need something more than just your word for it. — It's dot com 20:57, 9 November 2009 (UTC)


Can we stop calling the "stave it off" guy Davey now? I'd do it, but I actually have a job that pays cash-type money. There's got to be some industrious 13-year-old that can do it during 4th period study hall.--Periodic Table Greg 14:06, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

This is being discussed at Talk:Davey. Heimstern Läufer 14:09, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Text smoothing

As of Flash 8, you can set text smoothing to use a more detailed method intended for non-moving text (I believe it's called "antialias for readability", but I don't have Flash installed at the moment so I can't check). The captions at the end use the second type; this is the first time I've seen it or any other Flash 8 effect other than blurring. Does, or should, anybody give a crap? Seeing how we've mentioned in the past when a cartoon has a higher sound quality than usual... Octan 17:21, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
