Should We Keep Mustachioed Homestar Here?

Mustachioed Homestar Runner has a lot of info on his section. He appeared on moer than one toons. I know that his debut was behind the black, but he did make an appearance. He's not rejected like Homeschool Winner. Maybe we should give his his own page back. And if possible (but I doubt it), Coach Zed and Cardboard Marzipan. -Lotionman 22:44, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)Lotionman

I think this page is the perfect place to collect variations like this. I look at it like they really don't need to be considered for their own pages until the amount of description is at least as much as the size of the image, which even on small monitors is not the case here. — It's dot com 22:48, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)
There are many other characters that made a cameo appearance in one toon and they have their own pages. Like Sir Loodabert Comma and Goatface. -Lotionman 22:50, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I suppose the difference is that Comma and Goatface are standalone characters, whereas the others are variations on existing characters. — It's dot com 23:02, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)
P.S. I moved your new comments down to help with the flow of the page, since I was replying to them and not your original post. — It's dot com

Poorly drawn?

Anyone else think that 'poor' is bad choice of words in this listing of pics? I for one think that a poorly drawn picture refers more to the artist than a picture. If an otherwise good artist make something look its old, grainy, like it was drawn by a child, or reflecting early technology, than it should be referred to as stylized, or purposefully rough. I would change them all myself but I want to get some sort of consensus first I R F 23:29, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

Yet, they are still poorly drawn. Perhaps intentionally poorly drawn would fit as a better label. — Lapper (talk) 23:37, 31 October 2005 (UTC)
What is poorly drawn about that? I R F 23:40, 31 October 2005 (UTC)
Neither are poorly drawn. They are both examples of Powered by The Cheat, and should not be classified as poor. — Lapper (talk) 23:44, 31 October 2005 (UTC)
But those are some of the better examples. Most of The Cheat's work is much worse than that. — It's dot com 23:47, 31 October 2005 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Actually, "poorly drawn" does refer to the artist—which in this case is The Cheat. (Yes, I know TBC actually create it, but that's like saying that Shakespeare killed King Duncan (a common comparison in Calvinistic explanations of human agency). Like the arm separating in bedtime story, or Dickensian Malapropisms, these are intentional "goofs."

Change Formatting

Maybe we should put the Minor Characters and Variations into gallery formatting like Character page.--Super!SantanaDuper! 16:59, 27 August 2007 (UTC)


Should the diferent character variations from the books merit an article? -- 12:36, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Actually, most of the characters in the Storybook World are based on older designs, and are as such detailed in each character's evolution page. Those who don't (Tiny-Handed Strong Bad, The Prince of Town, etc.) have their own individual pages, which are still listed in the variations category. --DorianGray 12:39, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
Yes, but it would be easy to see all of them grouped together. Kind of like Character Video Transcripts. Each video transcript is written in 3 places, and yet we still have them grouped together on one page. Some of the evolution pages only have pencil sketches of the storybook characters (like Strong Sad and Marzipan), and the storybook version (which is in color) is nowhere to be seen. The Storybook characters are minor character variations, like Xeriouxly Forxe, and they should be listed on this page. (And yes, I know this discussion is 6 years old.)

Shoulds we do it? I already wrote the page in the sandbox. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:20, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
Halosche? Anybody? The Cheat? Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:41, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
If nobody disagrees, I'll just go ahead and make the page. Is that okay? Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 19:43, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Flashback characters...

so, I was thinkin' why isn't there a flashback Minor Character Variations page? -- 23:07, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Look up one section. the character variations that appear in flashback are covered in the topics that were discussed then. DorianGray has an explanation for why they aren't gathered into a Storybook Character Variations page. The Knights Who Say Ni 01:00, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
