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)

If I recall correctly, Defender1031 isn't staff, and shouldn't be editing other people's signatures to conform to the validation of the Wiki's XHTML DTD, (nor was Homestar-Winner, etc. back before I knew about it as they weren't staff either.) However, what does the staff feel about this issue, as I just wanted to ask the question, "Should non-staff go about changing '''''other user''''' signatures?" I'm not trying to be rude or anything, rather, getting the question off my chest, seeing as Staff are the only ones really allowed to edit others' signatures, even though that reverting would go against the HRWiki rules, but a non-staff member editing another user's page (of any kind) is also against said rules, thus creating a rule paradox, if you will. {{User:ColdReactive/sig}} 04:55, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

== Aquabats Kickstarter Cameo ==
-
:There's no rule that says that non-admins can't fix the code in other people's signatures. There [[HRWiki:User space#Ownership and editing of pages in the user space|IS a rule]] that says "If you must [edit someone else's user space], it should be for a compelling reason, for example to correct linking errors that might confuse readers or to provide technical assistance." Validation, especially when a signature is actively breaking pages, falls under the latter category. Note also that the [[HRWiki:Validation committee|Validation Committee]] was created mostly as a response to people using incorrect code in their sigs. (The most telling is the section on font tags: "There are many <nowiki><font color="red">text</font></nowiki> tags hanging out here and there. '''Many people are using them in their sigs.''' Since font tags are allowed in XHTML 1.0 Transitional, it's okay if people want to continue using them, but they should make sure to enclose the color declaration in quotation marks to keep things valid. However, '''we should try to switch everyone''' to <nowiki><span style="color:#rgb;">text</span></nowiki>. This method is much more forward compatible.") Also, if you are somehow under the impression that I have no communication with the admins beyond that which is visible to you on the wiki, you are mistaken. I hope that answers your question. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 06:24, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

== Does a Base64 Image count as an image? ==
+
Homestar Runner makes an appearance in this Aquabats Kickstarter video
-
Base64 text can be converted from an image to text and back into an image [http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1124149/embedding-background-image-data-into-css-as-base64-good-or-bad-practice via CSS]. Is it still valid to count such images as personal images even though they are text data? As the base64 text does not require as much data to be sent and received as an image does. (Browser processes the information from the text data, rather than download the image data.) {{User:ColdReactive/sig}} 04:16, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
+
[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbfRQBFC3hk&t=0s]
-
:Actually, text-based base 64 encoding is MORE data per the same image than actual image data. Each byte of base-64 data holds 1/4 of the possible values that a byte of image data can hold (accounting for 6 bits as opposed to 8), hence for every 4 bytes of image data, there are 5 characters of base-64 data, meaning, more work all around. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 09:31, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

I've [[HRWiki talk:Featured Article Selection#Take-a-break.exe|retired the featured articles]] and have set up the beginnings of an automatic list of daily featured H*R content. The format of this list will change, perhaps drastically, as we experiment with redesigning the entire main page.

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

According to the Archive Wayback, There appears to have been an update on January 15, 2013, snd several others back in 2011 and 12... Or is it just me? [[Special:Contributions/65.33.225.225|65.33.225.225]] 13:09, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

1) When will ALL the old Flash pages turn to HTML5?
-
:The Wayback Machine is not correlated to when an update was made. It takes a snapshot of what the web page looks like at that time and keeps it. The main page snapshots in 2013 all say "last updated 12-22-10". So there wasn't an update to the website on the dates you mentioned. {{User:The Knights Who Say Ni/sig}} 17:11, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

-
:The site is back up, but I don't see anything new. It might be a false alarm, but keep looking. --[[User:GBAura|GBAura]] 28 March 2013

Over the last 3 months or so, I have been copying the flash files for several of the toons (including ALL of SBemails) to a flash drive, via the "save target as" right-click command.

: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.

:::::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.

::The reason the method of creating accounts was changed was because up until the words were removed from next to "log in", we were having a lot of trouble with spambots creating accounts. We prefer that all of our accounts belong to people <small>(with slight exceptions for the five bots that are run by admins)</small>. So they changed the method to ensure that a person was creating the account. Given that no spambots have created an account since then, the new method appears to be doing its job. And granted, it looks like there have been four total edits that were made by users who joined the wiki this way, and three of those four were to the sandbox. So yes, that is an unfortunate setback. However, just like anything else, there is no perfect way to handle the situation. In general, I prefer the old method of creating accounts, but I also like it when there aren't any spambots creating accounts every couple of hours. {{User:The Knights Who Say Ni/sig}} 03:14, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

:::Ok, I can understand that, Spambots are nothing to BLARG at (Not that I would know). I still like wikipedia's way of doing it, (and they don't seem to have any trouble with spambots, but why? The World May Never Know.) [[Special:Contributions/65.33.237.1|65.33.237.1]] 11:30, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

::::As far as i know, wikipedia's way of dealing with spambots is having a huge active user base who monitors editing activity and quickly revert them. It'd be nice if this wiki had a huge user base, but unfortunately, it was never that big to begin with and most of the great users left as the hiatus lengthened. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 12:19, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

:So wait. Are you saying that there are no more great users on the wiki? . . . and that Broncotroll and TKWSN aren't great? They seem worthy of adminship to me . . If they aren't admins already. On a completely unrelated note, I think that I have been spending WAY too much time on the wiki: I am in college, and for one of my online discussion posts, one of my classmates pointed out that I was starting to sound like Strong Bad. And on a RELATED note: I do not like the visual word varification picture things. Sometimes you can hardly recognize the letters, and when you can they are often the letters that have identical capital and lower-case forms (I.E.: V, C, X, S, O, W, Z). It usually takes me 5-6 tries just to get one right. Desparately in need of a break, [[Special:Contributions/65.33.237.1|65.33.237.1]] 13:33, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

::Woah, I didn't know that. That's not fair... especially because those imagecaptcha things are like impossible to read. Maybe if you contact an admin, (I recommend [[It's dot com]] as he is the main developer/the only active admin these days) and give them your username they could bypass the spambot security and set up your account. Big thanks for the compliment! I'm a very active but a relatively new user (most sysops joined around 2005 but I joined in 2011), I don't think I could handle being a sysop at this point but I've been learning the features pretty quickly. I was on long enough though to confirm that most of the ''eminent'' users have left, there are still some great users though. Defender actually taught me a lot about the wiki (albiet sarcastically) himself. There aren't very many active ''sysops'' though, we need more people with sysop privileges to combat spammers (but thankfully, since the hiatus, there aren't many of those as well). {{User:Broncotroll/sig}} 14:16, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

:::Anonny, look up the definition of "most". I did not say that those who are still present aren't great users, I said that most of those who were great users have left. Also, you're in college but your parents still monitor every email you send? That seems rather odd.

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?

Here's an idea. For the cartoons that star the entire cast, I think that we should have a filmography category for all of them at once, instead of having one category for each. "ONE for ALL" and not "ALL for ONE". {{User:ToaJuaraevo01/sig1}} 12:49, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

:This seems less than ideal for searching, as that episode would then not show up on the character's individual filmography list. Additionally, there would need to be changes to the [[Template:Film|film]] template. An alternative idea, though: perhaps a separate "Toons featuring all 12 main characters" category in addition to the individual categories. --[[User:DorianGray|DorianGray]] 12:58, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

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 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. -[[Image:Baby strong bad.png|20px]][[User talk:Minecraft lover147|<span style="color:#00ab33;">Minecraft</span><span style="color:#734e00;"> lover147</span>]] 04:50, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

I am losing my confidence in TBC. I do not, honestly, think that they have any intent to update H*R.com again. How would they explain the 3 year absence? I will stick around, regardless. {{User:ToaJuaraevo01/sig1}} 21:14, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

[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)

[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 v.2020 (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)
