Ding! Seriously is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.


I just realized seriously is also written as sewiously sometimes in the transcripts too. So, don't forget to search those too... Ed lim smildE / talk

A lot of the Other appearances clearly have nothing to do with Homestar Runner's catch phrase. Should we remove them? --Trogga 00:27, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Anyone? --Trogga 20:15, 19 January 2007 (UTC)
Nah, I don't think we need to, since they're divided up. It's like all the subdivisions in the Crap article. (Doesn't it sound funny to say that? Like, "this article is crap", but it's actually a good article. It's a play on words, or something.) They're not all Strongo Baddo's catchphrase. --DorianGray

[edit] Image Caption

Regarding this edit which stemmed from this edit and the one in the middle. The reason that the thumbnail caption was removed was because the image itself already contains a caption. Adding another caption in this case is rather redundant can take away from the fun of the actual image. It would be very hard, in my opinion, to find a very good caption and the current one I don't think is one. However, I did leave the "thumb" frame because I think it looks more wiki-like. Nevertheless, in order to avoid any kind of edit war, I have started this discussion here. --Stux 17:13, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

After looking at the page history I noticed that the caption was removed for the same reason as I mentioned above. And after looking at the most recent "captionless"" version, I do believe that the borderless version looks better than the bordered "captionless" version. --Stux 17:21, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Seriously. I think we should just get a caption instead. The wiki-ness of the article would be hurt otherwise. What about one of the quotes from the page? A zinger like "Seriously, Pom Pom, I'm about to pee my pants." or "Sewiously, Marzipan, how do you get so smart?" or "I am still awesome. Seriously." would do the trick. There's my two cents. Seriously. Bluebry 17:26, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
I agree with Stux that a caption is unnecessary (worse, actually). I say remove the caption. I'm neutral about whether or not we keep the thumb box. OptimisticFool 17:32, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Eh, if we remove the caption, we'd better remove the thumb box. Lest it looks like this:
Which isn't very good looking. It just looks lazy. Bluebry 17:37, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
How about we remove the thumb box, but add rollover text? Homestar-Winner (talk) 18:26, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Rollover text would pretty much be a caption. So we might as well just come up with a caption. Bluebry 18:37, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Actually, rollover text isn't such a bad idea, and it leaves kind of a surprise for the curious reader. In fact, I just realized that's exactly what the previous version did (roll over the image and you'll see!) --Stux 18:45, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Actually, that "rollover text" is the image's alt text, because, as i said, an image is never a replacement for actual words. — Defender1031*Talk 18:47, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Eh, I kinda like rollover text alt text. Depends on what the rollover text is though. I seriously like "Seriously, Pom Pom, I'm about to pee my pants." Seriously. Bluebry 18:49, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
That's seriouly a seriously good quote. I could seriously do with that. Homestar-Winner (talk) 18:54, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
It's a good quote, except that alt text should serve as a stand-in for the image. Changed to just "Seriously.", per the text on the image itself. — It's dot com 16:44, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
I think it should say "Homestar: Seriously", you know, to convey the fact that Homestar is in the picture. So I'll make that change. What I wonder is if we can use the other quote in the caption tag, as that is what you are supposed to use to create rollover text. That way, people with text browsers or screen readers get to know what the picture is actually of, but us rollover fanatics will get the admittedly "good quote" for their effort.
As I was suggested to me earlier, I'll go ahead and make the changes. You can always revert. --(The)trlkly 00:22, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
I don't think "Homestar" in the alt text is necessary. "Seriously." is plenty, especially since we're using the caption as much for the title text as the alt text. Unfortunately, MediaWiki doesn't currently let you split them up. — It's dot com 13:57, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
What do you mean by "title text"? — Defender1031*Talk 17:27, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
<a href="/index.php/Image:Seriously.PNG" class="image" title="Seriously."><img alt="Seriously." src="/images/thumb/7/72/Seriously.PNG/180px-Seriously.PNG" width="180" height="208" border="0" /></a>
The title attribute controls the little tooltip you see when you hover your mouse over an image. The alt attribute is what's displayed when the image is missing or if a browser doesn't display images. Ideally, you could have different values for each of them (probably making the alt attribute be a description of the image itself), but MediaWiki assigns them both to be the same as the image caption. — It's dot com 21:49, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Seriously having serious trouble looking for "seriously"

I saw the Seriously page and thought there were some missing but when I went to search the wiki to confirm, it turned up nothing when I clicked search. I tried it with other words that were also page names but they seemed to work fine. What in Pete Sampras is going on here? Guybrush20X6 18:10, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

It appears that "seriously" is a stopword (a common word for which searching is not possible). Check out the list at the bottom of this page. — It's dot com 18:30, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
Seriously? *checks* Cwap, err, crap. Is there a way to remove it? If not, I'll just brute force it. Guybrush20X6 19:54, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
You could also do a site-specific google search instead... — Defender1031*Talk 19:56, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
Well that does sound a little less Strong Mad. I'll give that a go. Guybrush20X6 20:00, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
