::What program can I use to convert the picture? {{User:Bad Bad Guy/sig}} 00:29, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
+
-
:::A screenshot (if that's what you mean) is usually taken in a PNG format (somehow I got my old PowerBook G4 to take TIFF screenshots, unfortunately I don't know how I did it), so I don't exactly get the "JPEG to PNG" part of it. But, here are your instructions:
+
-
:::1. Open up Preview (Found in /Applications/, or just access "Applications" in the Finder's sidebar.
+
-
:::2. File > Open and then choose your image. It may be a time saver to have the folder open with the image in it, so you can just drag it into the file selector. It may also be a good idea just to Preview into the Dock, so that you can just drag the file on the program's icon for it to open.
+
-
:::3. Go to File > Save As... and choose the file format you wish to save it in.
+
-
:::4. Ta Da!
+
-
:::It should be the Save As menu item that did it, but I don't remember. I haven't used my Mac in a long time due to a couple technical issues I'm not willing to fix yet. :P --[[Special:Contributions/75.5.176.233|75.5.176.233]] 00:48, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Should we create a template for "''See [[Special:Random|whatever]]''"? It seems that I have done a lot of this recently. Would there be a need for it? --[[Special:Contributions/75.5.176.233|75.5.176.233]] 23:55, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

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.

== SVGs ==
+
Hi there, I'm a stranger who wants to ask you some questions.
-
Why were SVGs disabled? I mean, is there anything wrong with SVGs? Because I was trying to upload [http://htwins.net/SM_m.svg this] SVG that I wrote (my first SVG!) to replace Strong_Mad's_M.PNG. {{User:Fotoshop/sig}} 01:25, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
+
1) When will ALL the old Flash pages turn to HTML5?
-
:It's not so much that we've ''disabled'' SVGs, more that we haven't bothered to ''enable'' them. Mostly because the large majority of the images we upload are screenshots of H*R cartoons... so, while an SVG would be good (the Flash toons are vector art too, after all), it takes considerably more effort, and is much more likely to be inaccurate, than just taking a screenshot and uploading it as a PNG. Making it an SVG would involve either tracing a screenshot in an SVG tool (lot of effort, likely to not quite match the original) or exporting an SVG from Flash (also a lot of effort, would require a decompiler and a working version of Flash, and I'm not even sure if Flash ''does'' have an export to SVG option). {{User:Phlip/sig}} 01:45, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
+
-
::Still, if people want to do it, it's their trouble to go to, as from the administrative side, it's as simple as modifying one line in PHP to allow them. In my opinion, it's worth giving people the option, as i can only see it helping the wiki. (I'd really like to see svg exports of the [[Quote of the Week Character Heads]] as the gallery stretches them and makes them appear distorted currently.) {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 01:51, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
+
-
:::Well, to tell you the truth, I don't know why we need to use svgs. It may work for Wikipedia, but I wouldn't really relate us to them. {{User:HRjcm/sig}} 02:05, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
+
-
::::This has nothing to do with wikipedia. I already stated that i can't imagine any harm coming from it, AND gave an example of somewhere it would do some GOOD... I think that's all we need. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 02:31, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
+
-
:::::Sure, I have no problem with them being enabled... I just don't want to see them getting popular to the point that Average Joe Wiki User can't upload a screenshot of the new toon without SVGitising it first. As long as PNG is still the standard, it doesn't worry me. {{User:Phlip/sig}} 02:36, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
+
-
::::::Oh, and I think I might remember why SVG is disabled... before [[HRWiki:Main Page Talk Archive 27#What HAppened Today?|the server move]] we did a while ago, we were using a rather old version of ImageMagick... I remember some tweaks had to be made to MediaWiki to get it to work properly. I have a feeling that, because of its age, it couldn't handle SVGs, or reacted badly to them in some way... I'm not sure of the details though, it's been a while. {{User:Phlip/sig}} 02:47, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
+
-
:::::::I'll look into what it would take to enable SVGs the next time we upgrade (it's probably as simple as just enabling a variable).

:::::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.

Okay, maybe i didn't make myself clear. There is no point in discussing what will happen to the wiki. If they cancel homestar runner, we'll figure it out then. And when the sun goes nova in 4 billion years, we'll worry about that. And when the universe itself collapses in 30 trillion years, we'll probably all be dead already from the sun going nova. My point is, there's no indication that it's likely to happen soon, and no point worrying about it until it does. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 17:03, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

::I still think that it is probably the end of H*R.  Yes, the commentary for [[email thunder]] mentioned that it would be the last e-mail as opposed to the last toon, but in [[A Death-Defying Decemberween]], Homestar was referred to as "homestarrunner.com" twice and tried to kill himself, thus hinting that it might be the last toon.  Nothing like that happened any of the other times we thought the latest sbemail would be the last (flashback, alternate universe, etc.).

For the love of Bubs, pull yourself together. You're giving me ''deja vu'', for this is not the first time the website has been quiet. Hands up who remembers the 35 day wait between [[portrait]] and [[highschool]]? Everyone claimed that the end of Homestar Runner was nigh and then what happened next? They started updating again, everyone was happy and felt a bit silly. Yet it seems the lesson has not been learnt, and that lesson is that "It ain't over until the Chap Brother sings." Homestar Runner is more than likely to return eventually. In fact, it's actually only been 31 days since [[A Death-Defying Decemberween]] so the wait has been shorter so far. TBC are taking a break, and if you're getting so worked up about it, then maybe so should you. {{User:The Chort/sig}} 19:57, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

:Not to mention that there's one thing that doesn't make sense at all. In The Brothers Chaps' [[Georgia Tech - 26 Apr 2007|Georgia Tech appearance]], they state that do Homestar Runner for a living, as a hobby and as a job. Now, I realize that much has happened since then, with SBCG4AP and all and chances are The Brothers Chaps got a good deal of that share, but that contradicts what Mike said to one question "... [they're not trying] to let any financial things influence what [they] do. ...". Not to mention they have two kids to take care of. Sure, Homestar tried to kill himself, but that's just coincidence since lately a bit more violence has been depicted in the toons, at least in my opinion. There's a good chance we're all just being superstitious here. --[[Special:Contributions/69.150.85.66|69.150.85.66]] 22:05, 22 January 2009 (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. HweEloR.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:37, 6 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! HweEloR.png 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 (Gobble) 23:50, 30 August 2019 (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. HweEloR.png 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)

[edit] Site on the fritz

The wiki has been taking an age to load lately. Is there something amiss or do just that many people wanna know what the crap Bod is? Guybrush20X6 12:21, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

Yeah that happens sometimes, especially when there's a new toon. — It's dot com 16:35, 31 October 2020 (UTC)
