== Forum-Appropriate Topics ==
+
There are a lot of talk page discussions happening on this wiki. The problem is, this wiki is not very active, so such discussions rarely get consensus and very few things get done. (That's why I'm {{p|l=http://hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Links&diff=777176&oldid=777175 always}} {{p|l=http://hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Puppet_Character_Variations&diff=prev&oldid=776839 reviving}} {{p|l=http://hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Homestar_Runner_20th_Anniversary_Show&diff=prev&oldid=775801 old}} {{p|l=http://hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Teenage_Variation&diff=prev&oldid=776233 discussions}} with a phrase like "I still agree with this.") I think there should be some way to keep track of all the ongoing discussions. Maybe a <nowiki>[[HRWiki:Discussions]]</nowiki> page or something to keep these discussions from becoming inactive. {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 01:37, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

:I wouldn't go through any previously existing posts looking for them &mdash; for example, a lot of them are leftover from days before we were so strict about this, and we'd like to keep those for historical reasons.

::::::::''{written in reply to DC}'' I feel this is the better way to go about it. Remember, lots of people just don't understand the purpose of talk pages.

== Article Request ==

1) When will ALL the old Flash pages turn to HTML5?
-
See [[Talk:Marzipan and Strong Sad's Relationship]]. [[User:Bad Bad Guy|Bad Bad Guy]] 02:20, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

3) If Flash is dead, are you going to cancel HomestarRunner.com ?
-
A discussion [[Talk:Georgia Tech - 26 Apr 2007#Use_of_intro_paragraphs_in_GT_Library_newsletter|over here]] got me thinking about licensing issues on the HRWiki. A few thoughts:
+
4) Why wouldn't we see ANY updates from 2011 to 2014?
-
# We should "upgrade" our license to [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ CC 3.0] (it even says we should on our [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.5/ current license's page]).
+
5) Could y'all please tell us what email The Brothers Chaps have?
-
# We should make the [[HRWiki:General disclaimer|licensing info]] more prominent, say at the bottom of every page.
+
-
# We should make it clear on the editing page that by writing something, users are automatically licensing that content to the HRWiki, and that HRWiki will in turn distribute it under our CC license.
+
-
Copyright issues on a wiki can be very, very tricky, so I think we need to be as clear as possible about how we will license the content people contribute. Thoughts? <small>&mdash;&nbsp;[[User:InterruptorJones|InterruptorJones]]</small> 15:53, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

--[[Special:Contributions/83.185.35.154|83.185.35.154]] 18:37, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
-
:As I have [[HRWiki_talk:Spoken_Articles#Legality_Issues|mentioned before]] (despite that project being abandoned) these licensing clarifications should extend to non-textual media such as original images and/or audio. (This might be even more applicable in the [[HRFWiki:|fanstuff wiki]]). Of course I don't think everyone would be willing to license their media that way, but most people I don't think would mind. --[[User:Stux|Stux]] 17:37, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
+
:1) We don't know. Ask [[the Brothers Chaps]].
-
::I strongly disagree with being required to license original images under a CC license. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 18:02, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
+
:2) Never. Why should we?
 +
:3) You'll have to be more specific as to what that means exactly. We aren't involved with homestarrunner.com, so we can't take down someone else's website. And The Brothers Chaps are planning to give the site a HTML5 update, so they won't take it down.
 +
:4) Kids, creative burnout, side projects, etc. See [[HRWiki:Hiatuses]] for more details.
 +
:5) Their email address used to be brotherschaps@homestarrunner.com, but it was removed from the site's [[Email]] page, so it seems [[@StrongBadActual]] is now their primary contact method.

:::::Look, I'm not sure what your issues are, but the simple truth is that the best thing for you to do is behave like someone who has never even heard the name "Maudi Algabban" (we are not fooled, we know who you are) and has literally zero curiosity about the name or the user's history, while also showing no particular interest toward all the things you show far too much interest over (such as the Pyongyang reference, the hiatuses, and the possibility of homestarrunner.com being taken down) and never, ever, even for a moment, even consider writing loud yelling, swearing posts demanding people unblock you and give you answers to questions we have no way of answering. Also, make constructive Wiki edits (that means not vandalism, with or without scare quotes), not just Talk page chatter. Basically, you need to start over completely and pretend you are not and were never you and do not care about you - and that doesn't mean to insult yourself, it means ''do not mention'' yourself. You've built up far too much bad karma, so it's very likely that even the slightest hint that you are you will be treated with immediate suspicion, and likely result in further blocks. And if you think this is unreasonable, perhaps what you really need to do is to find a way to end your obsession with this Wiki. You've been pulling these bizarre stunts for literal years. --{{User:Jay/sig}} 23:50, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

I know it's really only for what's new to the official site, but what about public appearances? I just watched the Georgia Tech video (''awesomenessssss'') and was wondering if I've missed anything else... I don't really know what I'm trying to suggest here &mdash; a new section for recent public appearances (ex. Georgia Tech), side projects (ex. that They Might Be Giants video sample come readily to mind), etc.? &mdash; but I thought I'd just bring it up. Perhaps it'd be too small, what with these instances being far and few, but I'd still find something like that beneficial.... {{User:4kai2lyn6/sig}} 15:38, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Maybe you could consider adding the HomestarRunner YouTube channel to the new content watchlist, since that's where TBC seems to be doing most of their work, now?
-
:The closest thing that I'm aware of is this: if you [[Special:Userlogin|create an account]], one of the [[HRWiki:Why create an account?|benefits]] is that you can put pages in your watchlist and set up your [[Special:Preferences|preferences]] so that the wiki sends you an email whenever those pages are changed.

:I disagree. YouTube is really more of a dumping ground for all the old Flash stuff that is still available on the site, but might not be should the Flash plug be pulled. And though I prefer to avoid YouTube, I don't think the Homestar Runner YouTube channel has been updated in months. [[website|Because YouTube is a place where absolutely nothing happens]]. I would mention that most new content is now posted on Twitter, but much of it doesn't qualify as full toons that demand full attention.

:So, shortly after new updates are added to homestarrunner.com, somebody on the wiki adds them to [[Template:whatsnew]] and [[H*R.com Updates 2007]]. If you have added one of those pages to your watchlist and set the "E-mail me when a page I'm watching is changed" option in your preferences, then you'll get an email about as soon as a new toon, sbemail, etc. has been released.

I was just looking at the [[HRWiki:Main page redesign]], and it had something entitled, "On this day..." for H*R stuff that happened on that day in history.

It has been suggested that the Main Page be redesigned. Feel free to use its project page for proposed redesigns.

[edit] Featured content of the day (or whenever) issue

I noticed that the trogdor 08 link to "watch" links to trogday.html, and not trogday08.html is this a known issue? ColdReactive 13:04, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

Fixed. — It's dot com 15:48, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

[edit] Discussions

There are a lot of talk page discussions happening on this wiki. The problem is, this wiki is not very active, so such discussions rarely get consensus and very few things get done. (That's why I'm always reviving old discussions with a phrase like "I still agree with this.") I think there should be some way to keep track of all the ongoing discussions. Maybe a [[HRWiki:Discussions]] page or something to keep these discussions from becoming inactive. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:37, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

I still agree with this. (See? That proves my point!) Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 06:17, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
I also agree with this. (You have a good point!) Minecraft lover147 04:58, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
There's HRWiki:Open Discussions - not really active, but since it's directly linked from The Stick it could be revived easily. -- Bleu Ninja 21:40, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

[edit] February 21?

Why does the Main Page say that the newest Skills of an Artist was released on February 21 when it was released this month? 76.184.27.104 20:23, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

My bad. I probably copy-pasted it when updating and forgot to change the date. Thanks for bringing it to my attention~ --DorianGray 20:34, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

[edit] Two Questions

These two edits raise two questions concerning wiki standards.

See HRWiki talk:Standards → Linking to articles with disambiguation in the page title
and HRWiki talk:Standards → Retroactive names in transcripts

[edit] Some questions we would like to ask about...

Hi there, I'm a stranger who wants to ask you some questions.

1) When will ALL the old Flash pages turn to HTML5?

2) When are you going to UNBAN IP addresses who "committed" persistent vandalism?

3) If Flash is dead, are you going to cancel HomestarRunner.com ?

4) Why wouldn't we see ANY updates from 2011 to 2014?

5) Could y'all please tell us what email The Brothers Chaps have?

--83.185.35.154 18:37, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

1) We don't know. Ask the Brothers Chaps.
2) Never. Why should we?
3) You'll have to be more specific as to what that means exactly. We aren't involved with homestarrunner.com, so we can't take down someone else's website. And The Brothers Chaps are planning to give the site a HTML5 update, so they won't take it down.
4) Kids, creative burnout, side projects, etc. See HRWiki:Hiatuses for more details.
5) Their email address used to be brotherschaps@homestarrunner.com, but it was removed from the site's Email page, so it seems @StrongBadActual is now their primary contact method.
Hope this helps! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:33, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
Concerning the answer #2, why never? --83.185.35.154 22:50, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
To reduce the risk of a repeat offender. The Knights Who Say Ni 23:32, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
THAT repeat offender is way worse than CE5, aren't we right? --83.185.35.154 23:36, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
Look, I'm not sure what your issues are, but the simple truth is that the best thing for you to do is behave like someone who has never even heard the name "Maudi Algabban" (we are not fooled, we know who you are) and has literally zero curiosity about the name or the user's history, while also showing no particular interest toward all the things you show far too much interest over (such as the Pyongyang reference, the hiatuses, and the possibility of homestarrunner.com being taken down) and never, ever, even for a moment, even consider writing loud yelling, swearing posts demanding people unblock you and give you answers to questions we have no way of answering. Also, make constructive Wiki edits (that means not vandalism, with or without scare quotes), not just Talk page chatter. Basically, you need to start over completely and pretend you are not and were never you and do not care about you - and that doesn't mean to insult yourself, it means do not mention yourself. You've built up far too much bad karma, so it's very likely that even the slightest hint that you are you will be treated with immediate suspicion, and likely result in further blocks. And if you think this is unreasonable, perhaps what you really need to do is to find a way to end your obsession with this Wiki. You've been pulling these bizarre stunts for literal years. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 23:50, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
I must tell you all that I'm NOTHING but a stranger, but if you would like to send some ANGRY emails to him, his email address is -redacted- . Maudi MUST be punished and he's WAY the worst contributor on Homestar Runner Wiki! LET'S GET HIM!!!! --83.185.35.154 23:57, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

[edit] Netiquette w/r/t interviews on defunct sites

As I clean up various pages on the site I'm finding that many cited interviews and links are dead and gone.

See HRWiki talk:Standards → Interviews on defunct sites


[edit] https

Hi! Can you make this site secure please, https. Thanks kindly!

 ?
I have literally no idea what you mean by that. -Minecraft lover147 04:53, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

[edit] YouTube channel?

Maybe you could consider adding the HomestarRunner YouTube channel to the new content watchlist, since that's where TBC seems to be doing most of their work, now?

If you just want your name, like this:Minecraft lover147, you just put 3 tildes after your post (~~~). If you want to do your name and the time, do the aforementioned 4 tildes. To do just the time, like this: 05:11, 9 February 2020 (UTC), do 5 tildes (~~~~~).

I disagree. YouTube is really more of a dumping ground for all the old Flash stuff that is still available on the site, but might not be should the Flash plug be pulled. And though I prefer to avoid YouTube, I don't think the Homestar Runner YouTube channel has been updated in months. Because YouTube is a place where absolutely nothing happens. I would mention that most new content is now posted on Twitter, but much of it doesn't qualify as full toons that demand full attention. (This may change, but not in the foreseeable future). -- 68.37.43.131 13:35, 26 January 2020 (UTC)
There actually is SOME original content on there, if you bother to look. ToaJuaraevo01 File:Homsar-in-motion.gif 04:12, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
What exactly do you mean "new content watchlist"? YouTube-exclusive content is already listed and documented in numerous places. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 07:38, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

[edit] Redesign

I was just looking at the HRWiki:Main page redesign, and it had something entitled, "On this day..." for H*R stuff that happened on that day in history. I like the idea of that, but when I looked on it, it had stuff for February 9th. Where I live, it's still February 8th. I know this wiki is centered around UTC, but it could be very confusing for someone who doesn't know that. -Minecraft lover147 04:50, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

[edit] What's new correction

The "What's New" should have the Fan Costumes from Thanksgiving at the bottom. Wolf O'Donnel 03:52, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

I think whoever edited What's New last opted to take the Fan Costumes out instead, because the Halloween toon is a bigger, more significant update. The importance of updates should be considered alongside their recent,,,ness. A big toon should take priority over a short, and so on. --DorianGray 04:33, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
I did that. I was under the impression that the box was meant to primarily show the updates on the site's "what's new" button. The Halloween toon is there, while the Fan Costumes is not. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 04:37, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
A good rule of thumb is that we should list everything within the last month and anything that's still in the What's New button, and if we still have space to fill, we can include older things that you can actually watch, like toons. — It's dot com 14:07, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
