== Do we have a "Experience the Fury of..." page? ==

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.")

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

I know I proposed this idea in March and it got shot down, but I really feel we need to make a HR Wiki speculation page. The discussion above is happening way too often. We really need to get this thing off our chests. [[User:doctorwho295|doctorwho295]] 22 October 2010

:::::I agree with Strong Awesome. There is no difference, and that's why there is a forum. We don't need pages like that on a '''Knowledge''' base. A Forum is a Forum, and there's nothing wrong with it. --{{User:Record307/sig}} 21:56, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
+
-
::::::Yes, I see all of your points. I understand we have a forum, and that's where people speculate as much as they please. But here's the main problem: people don't know that. We are wasting our time going on each and every time it's mentioned and say, "I think this is for the forum." I understand that many people really don't see the point, but here's my main question: isn't it starting to get on people's nerves? [[User:doctorwho295|doctorwho295]] 24 October 2010
+
-
:::::::StrongAwesome74 and Record307 make a good point though: creating a speculation page would only change where we tell them to go. So, for example, when an anon posts in the Main Page Talk "Hey guys. I bet we're gonna get a punkin stencils this year" or something similar, instead of telling them to take it to the forum, we'd be telling them to take it to the speculation page. New users simply won't know where to go either way. And like Record307 said, it would also bring up the problem of putting non-factual things in a knowledge base dedicated to facts. {{User:DENNIS/sig}} 12:53, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
+
-
::::::::An article on speculation isn't going to happen. Our articles are strictly for factual content. It's not going to solve any problems, anyway, since people are going to keep posting speculation on our talk pages no matter what we do. Making a speculation page isn't going to solve that problem any more than the forum does. Making notes telling people "take it to the forum" is an inevitable part of our existence here. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 13:04, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:::::::::I agree we don't need (and shouldn't have) a speculation page.  What we need is a page that presents the known facts of the hiatus, which (let's face it) is a pretty huge event in HR history.  Facts may be few, but they're in no way absent -- we know when it began, what the brothers said about it, what little has been released during the break, and a little about other projects with which they're involved.  Even if it's short, it'll at least be someplace that people interested in the subject can go to see ''what's known for sure''.  Then if they want to speculate, they can take it elsewhere.  [[User:Huwmanbeing|Huw]] 14:14, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

== Hiatus page ==
+
4) Why wouldn't we see ANY updates from 2011 to 2014?
-
I just posed the question above, but decided it's probably better as its own section.  Does the HR Wiki have an article about the hiatus?  If it does, I wasn't able to find it.  If it doesn't, I suggest that one should be created.  [[User:Huwmanbeing|Huw]] 11:56, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:No it does not. But yes, I'd also like such an article to be created. This hiatus has gone on for a long time now, and has annoyed many fans (myself included), not so much the hiatus, but the fact that they gave no explanation about it. {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 12:55, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
+
-
::I may create one then, or at least the stub of one that can be further expanded.  Given that there have been occasional (though much shorter) hiatuses in the past, I wonder what an appropriate title for the article would be?  ''Hiatus of 2009-2010''?  (I trust it won't soon need to be renamed ''Hiatus of 2009-2011''...)  [[User:Huwmanbeing|Huw]] 13:27, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:::After careful deliberation, I agree. This is not just a delay. This was the longest break in Homestar Runner history, a fan crisis, and a long period of uncertainty. That, and it was likely a time where they had [[Poker Night At The Inventory|other things]] in mind. Yes, this is relevant. Perhaps as a supplementary page for Poker Night, but either way, this page has my support.--[[User:Jellote|Jellote]] [[User talk:Jellote|wuz]] [[Special:Contributions/Jellote|here]] 22:54, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
+
-
::::So, what do you think should be on that page? "There's been a long hiatus from November 2009 to the present (with a brief interruption around April Fool's 2010)."? That's not really going to make it for an article, and that's really about all there is to say about this. We don't know why the hiatus occurred (other than the baby), and airing our complaints (which is the main thing that's been written about the hiatus thus far) is not an acceptable use of our articles. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 13:07, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:::::No one is suggesting that the page will be an airing of complaints.  My thought is that the page could be about the brothers' hiatuses in general, including sections both on the earlier nine-month one and on the current ongoing absence.  Certainly there's not a ''lot'' known for sure, but what little is known can at least be presented there for those who are interested (and seemingly a lot of people are).  Further information can then be added as it becomes available.  Also, the fact that there's not volumes of material to include certainly shouldn't be a limiting factor -- we already have scores of pages that treat subjects very briefly (e.g., [[Russ T.]]).
+
-
:::::As to whether it merits having its own article...  If I understand correctly, one can usually decide if it's appropriate for a subject to have its own article by first determining if it has both relevance and significance.  The hiatus meets both criteria in spades.  Is there any reason why it should be considered either an insignificant or an irrelevant event in the world of HR?  Personally I'd say it's quite the reverse: at the moment it's arguably the ''most'' significant and relevant HR subject, one that bears on the very existence and future of HR and is on the mind of practically every fan.  It merits an article.  [[User:Huwmanbeing|Huw]] 14:07, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
+
-
::::::Articles are about content, though. The idea of an article about a lack of content doesn't seem terribly convincing to me. Of course, you're free to try, but don't be surprised if it's TBD'd. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 14:20, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
+
-
:::::::I'm not opposed to a hiatus article in theory, but I agree with Heim that there really isn't much to say. But, who knows, maybe there is. At this point, I think the only way for us to know one way or the other is for someone to make the article and see if it has legs to stand on. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 15:45, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

+
-
:::::::::Good start, SA74!  I like that it's entitled simply ''Hiatus'', since that can be both the singular and the plural form of the word (something I didn't know until recently).  One thing I'd suggest that I think would strengthen the page would be to have at least two sections: one for the brothers' earlier nine-month hiatus and one for the current one.  Then the page is about their breaks in general, and covers more material/content.  I'll see what I can contribute.  [[User:Huwmanbeing|Huw]] 18:36, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

::::::::::'''EDIT CONFLICT:'''I made a few edits to said draft. I have to say, this article could have merit, but I still have a few problems. The way it is written now doesn't sound very encyclopedic. It sounds more like a high school essay. Also, there's a point where enough is enough. As Elcool said in [[Talk:Ron Planet]], we're a Homestar Runner wiki, not a Brothers Chaps wiki.

:::::::::::I've done some rewording and have started to add some additional bits and pieces.  I agree that the wiki is about HR, and in that spirit I think that addressing the year-long absence of significant material to HR is entirely pertinent.  As it stands now it doesn't really speculate about anything, and just cites the brothers' own freely-made statements, as well as other publicly available information about their projects.  Obviously some mention of the brothers has to be made, but I don't think it's at all prying.  [[User:Huwmanbeing|Huw]] 19:15, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

:Remember me? I used to come on this wiki before there were no edits to be made. I feel that this proposed article may not be too good of an idea to create right now because, in my opinion, it does wouldn't look too great to write an article about a hiatus and not be able to place an end date anywhere on it. A hiatus is not a hiatus unless updates resume at some point. At this point, there is no way of knowing for sure whether or not there will ever be any new updates. But if the updates resume, I think this article would be a great idea to write! {{User:Homestar-Winner/sig}} 02:17, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

::::::Actually, the two are vastly different. AUD talks about instances when TBC have acknowledged the fact that they have not updated the site in a long time within the context of a cartoon. The hiatus has not been acknowledged in an update to the main site (Feedburner and wikileaks aside). This hiatus is significant because it has been significantly longer than any other, and it has caused a lot of doubt amongst the fanbase.

:::::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)

== Poker Night at the Inventory  ==
+
== https ==
-
Recently, a [[User:Guybrush20X6|user]] or two has been adding [[Poker Night at the Inventory]] to many of our pages, and personally, I disagree with this. This game isn't made or endorsed by the Chapman Brothers in any way, except for the fact that it has Strong Bad in it. If they actually made this game or Strong Bad had [[Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People|the leading role]], that would be one thing. But a minor appearance doesn't warrant being counted on pages as a reference, in my opinion. Any [[Wikipedia:Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney|objections]]? {{User:MichaelXX2/sig}} 11:56, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

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

:I think we should. I mean this wiki known for it's disturbing comprihensiveness and as long as we don't start adding irrelevent things form the other characters series (Like adding "All characters in Team Fortress 2 use guns" to the [[gun]] page) I think it should be fine. [[User:Guybrush20X6|Guybrush20X6]] 12:05, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

-
::I think that only things that strong bad says or does in that game are relevant. Entries like "Strong Bad plays poker with characters from other games." on [[Gambling]] are fine. Entries like "At one point Heavy says: "Beat me once, shame on me. Beat me twice, also shame on me. Beat me three times, I am sent to my death." on [[Death]] and "The Pac-Man watch that Tycho wagers is blood stained due to the rather bloody fights he and Gabe had over it." on [[Blood]] are not. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 12:10, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

::::That's more of a compromise than what I suggest. I went through the links to the page, and of them, the only ones I find problematic are [[Guns]], [[Death]], and [[Blood]], as they have nothing to do with SB and aren't TBC's reference.

-
With the impending release of Poker Night at the Inventory, I think we need to define a proper wiki policy on how we deal with crossovers. Do we write about them as a whole or just the parts involving Homestar Runner characters? [[User:Guybrush20X6|Guybrush20X6]] 14:28, 7 November 2010 (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?

::Definitely the latter. Poker Night isn't just a one off thing. We're talking about some three-dimensional interactions between our beloved luchador and three other, rounded characaters. We can't just brush this off as "out of scope". Our policies of crossovers have been outdated.

[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)
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)
