Do we add like any website that has anything to do with homestarrunner, like an easter egg website or a mention.

As long as it's relevant and significant. If someone's weblog mentions H*, no one cares. --Jay (Gobble) 08:23, 19 Jul 2005 (UTC)

My personal website has one of the old banners on it with a link to H*R. Is it worth mentioning? If it is, is it ok just to mention it without the link? I wouldn't want to put it out to a massive public like the WIKI readers or anything, since it is a personal site.--Martin925 02:34, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

Speaking of Atari Age, would this count? Homsar

In the last panel of this CTRL-ALT-DELETE comic, Ethan says "I'm crying on the inside. Homsar refrence? -TheJapaneseGeek


Kingdom Hearts

Could I add the reference to Homestar from the web cartoon Kingdom Hearts Chronicles?
Graffiti on the wall, right under the caption


Already there, man. Though you should probably look at Animation Sightings. -Marth 99 21:03, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

The Tenkay

On the comic "Stage 3: Time for plan B" page 15 one of the characters says "Talkin bout my email (But I'll never ever ever ever sing a song by Strong Bad)"


Many items here don't name the site, or are alphabetized strangely. As is, it's a pretty unwieldy page. Someone should take this on as a pet project. (Not me tho.) Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 14:12, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Spelling fixed, alphabetizing fixed, all the ones that don't exist anymore i think are out.. anything else?--- Image:Videlectrix man.sig.gif Collin - (T/C) 22:23, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Who in their right mind alphabetizes "The ..." under "T"? Unless it's The Cheat or something, articles are ALWAYS dropped. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:33, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

The computer does, for one thing... --DorianGray
But it's incorrect contexually. I'm going to be adamant here, I'm afraid.... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:38, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
EDiT:I do think we should count the second word after any "the"s, though. SO, I agree with ya. Bluebry 00:36, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
See, you're smart! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:38, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
Now, now. We don't want to say some people are unsmart. Thanks for the compliment, anyways. :-) Bluebry 00:41, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
That was a non-exclusive "smart" comment. It should not be read to imply that any other individual is quantitatively less smart. So long as they drop articles when alphabetizing, that is. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:43, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
It appears that the alphabetical concernes have been addressed. I'm removing the cleanup notice for now. Thunderbird 16:22, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
Oh was that me? oops. i'll remember that one.--- Image:Videlectrix man.sig.gif Collin - (T/C) 13:20, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Homestar Hunt 3

There's a game on called Homestar Hunt 3 which has you shooting Homestar in the first 3 levels, and, in the final level, shooting Strong Bad in a giant mech. I know this because I played it once. :wierd anime tear thingy: Also, a cheat for more than enough money to get the best stuff is "dik"It's fun when you just wanna get rid of stress, as long as you don't play the 4th level. you have health, because SB can shoot you back. The first level is the most fun with all the best stuff in the game. Itsame

Doesn't seem to be a real site, (or a game one anyway..) if you find the real site, possibly even to the game itself, i could put it in. and screenshots are good too.--- Image:Videlectrix man.sig.gif Collin - (T/C) 22:21, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

24-bit Theater

We now have 8-bit Theater linked in three places - once here, once in comics, and once in animations. The content partially repeats itself between them. We should standardize them (either by splitting the content, or putting the content all in one place). Which way, people? --Jay (Gobble) 03:52, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

My opinion: an animated cartoon goes on Animation. A static cartoon goes on Comics. A non-cartoon but on a website goes on Website. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 09:17, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Best Page In The Universe first account

"...and according to his book signing tour in 2006, he likes Strong Bad." This could have been a lie by the IP address.--H*Bad 05:15, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

August 17 Youtube sighting

YouTube is currently down for updates and maintenance. However, if you go to their page, their will be a random photo of their offices. 2 of the shots show a The Cheat plushie sitting on a bookshelf. The Spainish Inquisition

Olde English + Beanies

In the sketch Jurrasic Park, Joel Clark and Caleb Bark seem to be wearing what I thought were Homestar Runner beanies. The logo looks like an HR thing. However, I can't find that kind of beanie in the store or in the wiki. Could someone explain this for me? --Pladams9 02:18, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

I watched the whole thing and saw nothing even remotely reminiscent of H*R. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:31, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
I just thought that I had seen the red/white/blue star that was on their beanie caps. Thought it might be H*R seeing as it's a star and the H*R website uses that color scheme for the Homestar. Must have seen it somewhere else, though. --Pladams9 15:11, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Battery images - Objection!

Go check out the website (link provided). At the bottom of the page, underneath the image, the webmaster has found a link pointing to a site where, it seems, the Bros. have found the battery images used in the sbemail in question. He even says that people have been telling him it's from H*R! Maybe we should call this a fake.

I'm fairly sure the webmaster at Engrish is mistaken, and that the site that has those images also took them from H* Heimstern Läufer 22:58, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Funny Junk Banner?

Should we put one of those Parental Discretion Advised signs on the Funny Junk part? I've been there a lot and it's mostly ALL, as Strong Bad would say, "a bunch of crazy crap". -WeirdAl (talk · 18:31, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Homestar Runner Wiki Sightings?

I'm just wondering if we have a page for other websites that link to HRWiki. Many other wikis do, including Wikipedia and the Interactive Fiction Wiki (on the Thy Dungeonman 3 page, next to the link, they said we have an "extraordinary amount of detail" about the game). Would this be too much of a hassle to do or not pertain to Homestar Runner enough? I think it's a good idea personally and would be more than willing to make the page. -Brightstar Shiner 15:06, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Pages that are about/link to HRWiki: HRWiki:Articles about HRWiki. Bluebry 15:07, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
I know that, but those website sightings are purely about HRWiki, not just linking to it. The media in Sightings reference H*R, but they're not reviewing it or something. I thought we should have a page similar to Sightings for the HRWiki. -Brightstar Shiner 15:13, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
No, no, they're pretty much all articles or texts about the HRWiki. Bluebry 15:15, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
That's what I was trying to say. By Sightings, I mean this one, not this one. Do you sort of see what I mean? -Brightstar Shiner 15:18, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Oh, you mean like, if HRWiki is mentioned on some show, or website, we list it? Naw, I think we're fine just linking to pages that only give in-depth information about the HRWiki. Bluebry 15:21, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
If I read you correctly, you want to go farther than note pages that discuss the wiki and also note pages that just link here? I'm thinking that'd be a useless exercise. The Articles page is there to document the impact we have had on the H*R community for good or bad. But mere links here - that's not really offering anyone anything of value, I'm thinking. It's one thing to note links to H*R because it demonstrates their cultural significance, but we aren't in the business of demonstrating our cultural significance. We document H*R and to the extent we're described as a good, bad or some other type resource, that's notable as an example of how well we do what we do. (Am I making any sense? It's kinda early for me...) Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 15:22, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess you're right. It's not early for me, but I'm editing in my bed as we speak (type?). Maybe I'm just delusional from reading all of Addict 2006's Wikipedia userboxes (you try it sometime!). -Brightstar Shiner 15:36, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

April Fools 2006 Wikipedia

A screenshot Wikipedia:Image:Baleeted.png from Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Bad Jokes and Other Deleted Nonsense#April fools 2006 had a "Delete" tag renamed "Baleeted". --Addict 2006 16:33, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

It is now officially under Wikipedia:Wikipedia:April_fools/April_Fools'_Day_2006. The image still works. --Addict 2006 14:04, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

How notable?

Is The external website linked here contains offensive language and/or content. content warning this site even remotely notable? I ran into it the other day and thought that it was cool they referred to H*R, but it's just a blog. Still I wanted to post about it in case there's a glimmer of a hope of a chance that there's some notability to it. --Stux 00:47, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Belle of the Ball

This game is on Addicting Games. Is this a reference to halloweener or this that an actual phrase? D&d greg 01:32, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

See here for a real long view. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:39, 23 June 2007 (UTC) It's Dot Com!

That is the new banner on Final Fantasy XI's Wikipedia site (now officially PlayOnline advocated since Feb2007). It is to signify the fact they could afford to buy the domain. There is no way at all you can tell me that it isn't a Homestar reference. The wording and everything is exact. I am writing this here because I can't complain if I'm proven wrong here, but I can (and probably would because I am a jerk) if it is deleted from the main page of this. Now for the operative question....Does This Count? Stinkoblade 17:53, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

In my haste I forgot a VERY, VERY, VERY important detail that could justify even adding it. It is one of their temporary banners that will only be up for about 3 months, if even that. The thought occurred to me right before I left to watch MythBusters. You guys argue over it. I'll be back in about 2 hours from this post. Stinkoblade 18:06, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Page Reorg

Of the Sightings group, this page (naturally) seems to get the most activity. With over 100 sightings and exceeding WikiMedia's 32kb warning, this page is in need for a reorganization. Anyone have any ideas how to do a reorg? Splitting A-N, M-Z? Having collapsing letter categories? Mass removal? Other ideas? wbwolf (t | ed) 18:33, 9 September 2007 (UTC)


I put a youtube sighting and a sighting, and both of 'em are deleted. Does it have to have something? Why are they deleted?- LordJ

Don't know. Why are you asking this? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 23:27, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Can someone please REALLY answer me? I didn't make that JUST to put it on here!!

I did answer. Probably, not a really needed comment. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 00:07, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Oh! I thought that was sarcasm! Well, I'm going to re-post it! And NOBODY deletes it! Ceez! It's not like it's against the rules to post a totally relevent article!! OH, YEAH... THAT'S WHAT THIS WIKI IS ALL ABOUT!! Huff, puff, huff, puff..... Alright I'm better now!- It's that guy! With that plane!

another addicting one

i found another game on addicting games that has the Homestarmy motto. on portal flash version, in the description.

CSS fixing?

What about the "Dress Up Barack Obama" code? It kind of bugs me a little how it goes off screen and the background peeks out. And I even have a good screen width (1280px). Could anyone put in a span tag to fix this without messing the code up? I've tried what I know for CSS, but I can't seem to fix it. -- 20:35, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Another SA sighting...

Today's front page news on SA ( might be referencing Trogdor - scroll down the page - the last wresteler's signature move is The Burninator.


Speaking of Youtube...

I was watching a Super Smash Bros. Brawl video, one of the fake character rosters had Homestar and Strong Bad as playable characters. Coincidental! --Roboblob 14:01, 12 August 2008 (UTC)


Someone go to Newgrounds and check out "Arfenhouse". Those movies have a crap-load of H*R references. Not Dennis

check dis out _-Dr. S-_ 04:24, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Doesn't count, since it's just lifting the Roomisode game from TBC. wbwolf (t | ed) 04:31, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

The Kerrek At Linux From Scratch?!?!


I am a Linux-loving guy, and I found something that might be condicred a reference.

See That is a LFS mirror.
Notice anything about this URL?
Who made up the name was obviously playing Peasant's Quest. (heh, heh)

I'm just wondering, does that count as a reference?


Most likely STUFF'd or won't count

This was placed in the article just recently:


Notice The following website is outside of and contains crude or vulgar language and/or content. Personal discretion is advised.

In the Top Ten Best and Worst Gaming Peripherals video The external website linked here contains offensive language and/or content. HIGHLY inappropriate material for #1 best peripheral, an 8-bit version of the 20X6 theme (actually the Rad Racer theme, on which it is based on) is heard while the hosts and the Angry Video Game Nerd discuss the Power Glove (#4 worst peripheral on the list)

Sure I've tweaked it up, but it probably won't count due to it being the Rad Racer theme, which is from a NES game and ScrewAttack specializes in video games. Am I right? --Addict 2006 13:58, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Absolutely. I love the ScrewAttack guys and all, but I too say that this isn't a direct Homestar reference. Rexy-mberween (save the rabbits!) 14:48, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
