A-pretty Good

The chet is fune. That's gotta be the most awesome fanstuff ever! I hope general comments are okay... -- AgentSeethroo 15:17, 19 Aug 2004 (MST)

I don't know, we might want to have a designated section heading for them. Like "mindless chatter" or something. -- Tom 15:29, 19 Aug 2004 (MST)
Where'd that be? On this page? "Witty Banter" would be funny...but it's usually not witty... *sigh*. -- AgentSeethroo 16:01, 19 Aug 2004 (MST)
Yeah, I mean a general heading that would be used on a discussion page if someone just wants to leave a comment like you did. I don't want to encourage it though. And we've always called it "mindless chatter" in the disclaimer. -- Tom 16:22, 19 Aug 2004 (MST)
Speaking of chet, is it just me or is that NOT strongbad, notice the blue hair, its stinkoman!!!! --Frogz 10:46, 8 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Anyone have the pleh jallegiance screen shot? -- cyco

hey this stuff`is prettay goodUser:Vile.exe/Vile.exe

Yes, I had it archived on my computer for several months now (unknowingly, no doubt), and only yesterday did I realise I had it available all this time...and I had yet to see it here on the wiki. The flag of strongbadia (in all its glory) can now be seen in weekly fanstuff! --Teh P. 22:07, 3 Oct 2004 (MST)

What are homestar meltymen? -- Mithent 09:41, 1 Oct 2004 (MST)

Almost 100% sure "sweetchucks" means Sweet Chuck Taylor's .. because the shoes are Converse, a brand by Chuck Taylor. -- EMJS

Cardboard Tube link

I've removed the link to from the Trogdor Stand-up cabinet listing. Some of the images in their "images" section look similar to the cabinet, but I wasn't able to find that particular image anywhere. Perhaps the image was just created using the same software? Does anyone have any information regarding this website and its images? -- Tom 17:11, 5 Oct 2004 (MST)

It's definately there. Go to images => mapojects => old school arcade. They have a bunch or arcade cabinets, including the exact trogdor image. -- 10:49, 3 Dec 2004 (MST)

Indeed it is, linked to from this page: arcade_trogdor.jpg. Well done. -- Tom 12:40, 10 Dec 2004 (MST)


Are these dates positive, or do I just remember "sweetchucks" being before "The Cheat in a Crisper Drawer"? -- FireBird|Talk

As far as I know, they're accurate. — InterruptorJones[[]]
They are all correct. -- Tom 13:58, 10 Nov 2004 (MST)
I must have bad memory skills. Whatever that means. -- FireBird|Talk

Possiblity for a table?

A number of the images in this article are rather large and a few are off-site images. Nevertheless, does anyone else think that the weekly fanstuff article is a candidate for a table? I believe Tom implemented a nice table, very recently, on a similiar article over at Sketchbook, and I just wanted to know if anyone else thought that it would be a good idea? I could help with the image uploading if a few others think it might work. --Teh P. 22:50, 11 Nov 2004 (MST)

I've converted it to a table. All that needs to be done now is for the images to be described in the fourth collum there. -- Tom 12:43, 10 Dec 2004 (MST)


Is it just me or did they totally miss out on the "homestarmukle"???

Homestar Skullcap, what kinda name is that?

That's what TBC decided to name it, mystery poster. Appears to be a 'yarmulka' to me. "Skullcap" is a just a more neutral (politically correct) word for the same garment. --Teh P. 23:09, 11 Nov 2004 (MST)

Heh, I suppose the political-correctness is an issue, but I thought it was a great funny that got passed up. : ) I'm a long-time hrwiki lurker. --Aegd

Hey So that is my head and my Yarmulke. I didnt think anyone would get Homestarmulke. But how awesome.

Shouldn't this description read something like "Homestar on a yarmulka (Jewish skullcap)"? The skullcap mushroom description is flat-out incorrect. -- random lurker


This page should be archived periodically to prevent it from getting too long. Once a month mayhaps? - Drhaggis 00:47, 17 Nov 2004 (MST)

I agree. Perhaps we can have a poll on the forums for choosing the best time increment to archive? --The Paper 20:40, 2 Dec 2004 (MST)

Message to TBC from Jonathan Howe

Be sure to view the XML source of this file: [1]

I learned about this XML file when I was poking through these flash files: [2] & [3] when I found I couldn't view the image or the text when those two preceding files are saved remotely (i.e., on a hard drive.) Jonathan (I assume his last name is Howe, as he is a programmer) has left a message in a comment to the "Chapos" about the placement of certain "character shortcuts." He more or less 'signs' the comment with the words "Love, jonathan." I just found this rather amusing. Does anyone else? --The Paper 20:37, 2 Dec 2004 (MST)
this should be a fun fact!! --Frogz 10:50, 8 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Alt text

Please leave the alt text for the images as the exact text that appears in the images. This is for easier and better searching. Thanks. -- Tom 13:19, 16 Jan 2005 (MST)


Just a side note that the Dennis sign is cut off, below Dennis is probally "Willows Rd." or stuff like that. Not that un-common for roads to be nammed after people in the USA. Just for those that don't realize. - Mick

True or not, it's on this site because it's on H* --Jay (Talk) 07:35, 1 Jul 2005 (UTC)
UPDATE: But I'm going for not, because we can clearly see where the bottom of the sign is. --Jay (Talk) 07:36, 1 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Whoa, Didn't see that one.. Ok scratch that. - Mick
Here's what I could find on Mapquest. -- tomstiff 20:03, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Possible Homestar yarmulke sighting

Is there anyway to tell where these things come from? While I was scanning the page the other night, I saw the HR yarmulke, and remembered I had seen a yarmulke very similar to that at a baseball game I went to a few months ago in Little Falls, NJ (I'm from Clifton, NJ, a neighboring town). --ISlayedTheKerrek 23:09, 6 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Marraige Invitation?

Are Homestar Runner and Marzipan getting Married?¿?¿????????? If not, whats with the wedding invite??

No, they are not getting married. It's an invitation that somebody, somewhere, at sometime made with Homestar and Marzipan getting married. "A fan." —BazookaJoe 19:42, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)

OOOOOOOooh... okay. I understand now. It scared me there for a minute!

This is my wedding invitation. My wife created these two versions of the characters. We figured TBC ought to see them, so we sent them an invite. Aaronite 21:47, 18 Aug 2005 (PDT)

sending fanstuff

How do you send fanstuff so that they have a chance to get put on the weekly fanstuff? Do you email it to the BCS?

Posted by Martin F.

I don't know in every case, but as mentioned above, I sent in my wedding invitation in early May to TBC through the mailing address in the Store P.O. box. We didn't know if it would get to them, but it clearly did. It wasn't intended to be fanstuff; we actually wanted them to see it. At any rate, I suppose you could also e-mail them to TBC. Aaronite 18:38, 21 Aug 2005 (PDT)

Fairly On Point Kings

Is it just me, or is it quite plausable that Strong Mad is being played by a dresser? Thunderbird 17:06, 16 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Seems logical to me. Making such a rectangular costume might be a tad difficult (can YOU balance a thick wooden board on your head for a long time?). Obviously, it's a fairly thick surface, as it doesn't bend at the ends, like a piece of cardboard might if balanced on someone's head and draped with a sheet. Also, the place where Strong Mad's arms would be are kinda limp-looking (perhaps indicating that there's no person in the costume who would manipulate the arms). It looks about the right size for a dresser too, judging by the fellow dressed as Strong Bad next to it. And lastly, the Kick The Cheat plushie on top indicates that it's a level surface, which would be hard to do on a person. So, in summary, it's not just you. --DorianGray
Actually... I'm pretty sure there's a person in there. My wife and I are pretty sure we saw them at a Japanese culture convention or two, most likely Pacific Media Expo or Anime Expo. Note the badge hanging around Strong Bad's neck. I'd have to dig out my collection of conbadges to see if one of them matches, but I'm still quite sure that they're the same people, from the distinctively lopsided shape of the Strong Bad costume's head. Anyway, the Strong Mad costume mostly consisted of a wooden frame, and I'm pretty sure that they had handles coming down from the top inside the costume to support it. Here's another picture that also shows Strong Mad's feet: [4]. -- LGC&CS 04:09, 31 May 2006 (UTC)


Does anyone know of a site that archives all the weekly fanstuff? Or is there any way to access the old fanstuff from

Press article at the top of the page. There you go! --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif, 21:01, 16 September 2005 (BST)

Thanks. The reason I didn't realize this was because I came directly to this page (the discussion board) from google, and not through the site.

Archive Page

Should we split this page? It's getting really long and isn't going to get shorter. - Joshua 20:28, 16 Sep 2005 (UTC)

You mean like by years or something? That's a good idea. — It's dot com 20:40, 16 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Yeah. By years was exactly what I was thinking. - Joshua 20:53, 16 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Yah, it IS a good idea. --Ookelaylay 19:47, 29 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Going to "bump" this discussion so to speak, since the size of this article is becoming an issue. Even on my 4 megabit connection it takes half a minute to get the whole page loaded, so I dread to think what it's like for those poor ol' 56k'ers -- MisterTweek
I'm gonna just be bold and do this... and to Sketchbook, too... --phlip TC 07:56, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Kids dig the cheat

The kid in the middle for this weeks fanstuff is my sister. I made her that costume and we went trick or treating as homestar and the cheat. That one baby looks like it is wearing a modified chef hat... -Jenny 05:20, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

Do you have any other photos from the same set? -- Tom 08:05, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
She posted more images on the Fanstuff Wiki, and I linked to it here. Should we upload the image to this wiki, or should it stay where it is? - Joshua 17:13, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

I uploaded it it is on my userpage you can use it or do whatever guys. I have another one also of me holding her in my arms that is pretty cute lemme upload it offsite so you can see if you like that one. -Jenny 18:32, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

[Here it is] -Jenny


Call me stupid, but how does one submit fan stuff to TBC?—S*R 02:52, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

I emailed mine to them as an attachment... on a very polite email praising their site on behalf of my family ;) -Jenny 02:55, 9 November 2005 (UTC)


Yeah, it looks like a bookbag/bagpack of sorts. On the left, it seems to be carried by some lady and it hangs down to her waist (those are pretty long straps). The second it's just set against a pole or handrail of sorts, overlooking some hill and there's a staircase to the left. A needlessly detailed description, but a fun one to write nonetheless. --Stux 17:28, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Deryb Car?

The description for the pinewood derby cars say it's a 'Derby car made of pinewood'. This sounds a little strange to me, I mean am I the only person who knows what the Pinewood Derby is? The Pardack


I can verify that the person playing the tuba is in the LSJUMB, having played that very tuba (it's one of the ones in best condition) and having hung out with that kid. We're excited about the recognition on h*r. The Lyrical Wondermind 01:20, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

That's pretty sweet, knowing someone who was featured in the Weekly Fanstuff. Thanks for verifying that for us. Has Matt? (talk) 01:25, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, well, it's even sweeter to be the one in it -- the way I heard about this is he sent out an email to the band mailing list titled, "HOLY S***!!!!" :) We also have a toob painted with the Strongbadia flag that we haven't used in a while. The Lyrical Wondermind 01:46, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

Wait, so what are those? Tuba... bells? Like a little Decemberween ornament with a guy playing a tuba on it.. and also StrongBad?

The big round part of the tuba (or other such instrument) where the sound comes out is called a "bell."
Ok, so what are we looking at? I see a tuba player and above him a circle with strong bad's face.. is that like a blow-up of a smaller detail on the tuba that we can't see? Why are there three of them?
As far as I can understand, that's a cover-type thingy for the tuba. --אוקאלייליי (Ookelaylay)

Cheatar Jr.

hey you guys, is that Cheatar Jr. one of those BRatz Cheap-o fake Guitar things that they sell at Target? or is it the controller for the game Guitar Hero?

I thought it was a Guitar Hero controller at first. But the buttons are missing, as is the whammy bar, and the head is the wrong shape. --13:10, 2 March 2006 (UTC)~~


You really think that Strong Mad and Marzipan are missing? I see them as the second and third heads down on the right slope. I think everyone's there but Strong Sad...Homestar on top...Strong Mad and Marzipan on the nxt level...Coach Z, Bubs and Strong Mad...then Pom Pom, The KOT, The Poopsmith and The Cheat. - Guest

There's only 10 heads. Two mus' be missing. Strong Mad would be noticable by teeth, eyebrows, a nose, etc... And Marzy by her yellow hair. --DorianGray
On second observation (and remembering Homsar), It dfoes look like the head I see as Strong Mad could be Homsar...and Marzipan could be Strong Sad. - Guest


So. I agree that Trogdor forms the spout of the teapot, but I'm still trying to figure out what the handle is. Is it another beefy arm? Or a prawn? Trey56 19:12, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

If it has to look like something Homestar Runner-related, it looks like a croissant to me... --DorianGray

SB Onion

This is a joke about how there once was a piece of cheese toast that looked like the Mother Mary. I'm sure you knew that, but is it worth mentioning?--Jnelson09 18:40, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Could be, but I think it's much to common to refer to any one thing. -- Tom 18:49, 17 July 2006 (UTC)
You know, this has been repeated alot. Excuse me if this breaks any wiki rules, but there was also once a tortilla that looked like Jesus. THAT's why it is worth mentioning. it has been repeated so often that everyone would know what the joke is. -RadSkat3 20:15, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Man or not?

I'm not sure that that's Strong Badman fighting the Bear Holding a Shark. Looks more like it's a realistic version of Strong Bad. Exhibit A 02:11, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Strong Bad is not that muscular. --Jay (Talk) 02:19, 21 July 2006 (UTC)
No, but in a lot of fan art, he is drawn that way. [5] [6]-Exhibit A 02:26, 21 July 2006 (UTC)
I think it's pretty obvious:

 Loafing 02:28, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

It is Strong Badman. Here is a link to the original picture, the person who drew it even says it's supposed to be Strong Badman. I think I'll take his word for it. ;) - Image:TinySaturn2.GIF Saturn 15:33, 21 July 2006 (UTC)
Nice find Saturn, I've added the link to the article. -- Tom 15:52, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Strong Zim

I'm not happy with the Invader Zim reference for the "awesome cheatcow". The only connection between this fanart and Invader Zim is that they have beady eyes. It's a common drawing style. I also don't see that "that Cheat has the exact same facial expression as GIR".  Loafing 07:57, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

I am seeing absolutely no resemblance whatsoever. Please provide blurry photographic evidence. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 09:13, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
I can sort of see it, and think that H*R looks a bit like the nerdy kid who knows about zim (havent sen it enough to remember character names :S), dont really see The Cheat as GIR tho, dont really think its solid enough for the articl without outside confirmation DumbMuscle 20:09, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
I just watched a few episodes a few days ago, and I really don't see much resemblance except for the eyes. The drawing style for zim is more sharp than that. - link_icon.gifThe Joe(Talk) 00:43, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
The Cheat looks more like the pigs on the show, but I don't think this a reference. --Trogga 15:23, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

cant you see? its a homage to minimoose!

I think it's an homage to wiki users wetting themselve over the chance that it might be a Zim reference. I agree that the note should be laser-beamed from the record. Pointy King 00:52, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Please note that this is 2 years old, and the aforementioned fanstuff isn't even on this page anymore. — Defender1031*Talk 00:58, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
But it is still on the Wiki. Pointy King 01:36, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
yeah, that's not true. — Defender1031*Talk 01:39, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, it's there. Art thou delusional? Strongkinghomsarsmith 01:45, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
The picture is, but there's no mention of Zim. — Defender1031*Talk 01:49, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Oh. Didn't look there. I thought you meant the fanstuff. Strongkinghomsarsmith 01:52, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
That WAS what was in debate here, was it not? — Defender1031*Talk 01:53, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

A slice of marzipan?

Am I seeing things, or does that purple-and-yellow thing in the background of the "Awesome Cheatcow" picture look like a cross section of Marzipan's skirt? -- Mayosolo 19:12, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Doesn't look like it to me... --DorianGray
I agree with this, just thought that it might be me going crazy at the time so didnt post it earlier, definitely looks like the bottom of Marzy's dress turned sideways (think with all the area below the white ribbons on the dress as yellow). Try drawing her from memory after a few hours of non H*R exposure, will probs look pretty similar DumbMuscle 20:04, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
For what its worth, and to prove I sometimes agree with things, I think it totally looks like Marzipan's Dress. --JamesDean 05:44, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

I was just about to ask this question. I think it is her.----Marvelrulez 15:45 16 October


That car is a Gremlin. Retromaniac 05:37, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

I was thinking that too... "It's kinda the same shape, and if it is, that'd be awexome... But I dunno enough about cars to say anything definite. 'Cept that the steering is on the right side, like in England." Those were my thoughts. --DorianGray
Comparing it to the Gremlin in this picture, it doesn't look like one — at least the side windows in the back are different, and the hood seems to be longer. But perhaps a different year or model Gremlin looked like that one. Trey56 05:56, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
An image search shows similar cars to the one from the 'Kipedia article. Take good notice of the weird shape of those windows. Given that Gremlins apparently look very different from the Trogcar, that the Trogcar looks like any ordinary old European car, and that it has the steering wheel on the right-hand side, I'd say that's definitely not a Gremlin. Loafing 06:00, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Although it is not overly important to identify the make of car, I can with certainty rule out it being an AMC Gremlin. It would make sense given the exposure that car has received, but I personally believe the car is a Vauxhall Chevette. Additionally, the year of the car appears to be 1980 or earlier based on the style of the tail lamps and rear bumper. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 19:32, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Okay, so I went through and a few good images of the taillights of various years/models of Chevette: '76, '76, '76, '76, '77, '78, '79, '80, '81, '81, '82, '82, '82, 82, '84, '84, '84, '84, '85, '85, '86, and '86. I can't really make a positive match to a year though. -- Tom 00:00, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
Good investigative work there, Tom. The only snag is that the photos you found are of American cars (Chevrolet) and the trogcar appears to be a European one. That may explain the reason why the tail lamps are difficult to identify. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 01:07, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

European? The door handles look Japanese to me. --Jnelson09 15:36, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

If you're being serious, then you're probably right. People drive on the left side of the road in Japan. And as others have mentioned earlier, the car does have a steering wheel on the right side. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 00:45, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
Or as DorianGray already pointed out, it could be British. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 08:39, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
Or from New Zealand, Australia, .... a lot of placesLoafing 08:59, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Rag Doll?

That type of doll is called either a UFO Catcher Doll or a Plushie. A rag doll is made from scraps of leftover material.

All soft toys are plushies, a ragdoll is a plushie stuffed with scraps of rags, and a UFO catcher doll is a plushie you got from a UFO catcher machine (do people actually WIN those?)
This doll was actually made from cut up t-shirts, so the term rag doll does seem appropriate. His feet aren't actually preternaturally large, rather he was sitting in a chair in the original photo, causing his feet to look huge through perspective.

Eh, Steve?

Doesn't that ornament look a bit fake? Kinda looks like a photoshop filter was thrown over a screenshot. It's hard to tell cuz it's a little low-res...

It doesn't look fake to me. I think the artist made it out of a sheet of copper. ~Garnet Jell-o~ 02:02, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Cheatar Hero? Pfft. Faked.

The Cheatar controller is really just a Bratz Plug-And-Plau Guitar thing. Image! Compare the two (Bratz and Cheatar) and you can see they are the same shape, and have the same head. Although it has been engineered to look "Guitar Hero"-y, I doubt it works. Hell, the whammy bar is probably fake. Still. It looks cool, and I still want a (real) Cheatar Hero controller.

PS. I thought this referred to it initially. :P -- 20:40, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Well, it looks more similar to this one than to the bratz guitar. The only difference to the linked Guitar Hero controller is the mount for the shoulder strap, while the Bratz controller needs to be seriously modified. Loafing 21:04, 15 May 2007 (UTC)
You're right! I was thrown by it being an unofficial controller! Never mind then. -- 12:57, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Maybe it was taken a year ago, and it sat in some back corner of the persons hard drive for months and months before they got around to sending it to TBC, and then it sat in some back corner of THEIR hard drive for months and months before they got around to putting it on the site.

I was wondering if the awesome fanimation should make mention that the after the animation ends, there is a working link to an external website, something TBC said they would never put up on the site.--BenceJoful 12:32, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

I think that the external link is covered by the part that reads "At the end, it fades out to read 'By Dan Mackenzie' and 'play again?'." I'm curious though: where did TBC say they'd never put a link to an external website on I don't recall that, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's true... Trey56 09:00, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
I just looked it up, and I guess they never say never (especially since this time is most likely an accident), but in the Tastes Like Chicken Interview Mike and Matt talk about it. Almost all the way down, Matt says "Yeah. We don't even link to other sites" and explains why. -the Bence 1:40, 30 November 2007
Also, from the FAQ, it says this: "Q: Will you link to my website? A: There's no real place for that sorta thing on our website. We link to a couple sites here and there but only when it's appropriate." TheCoolBot 12:58, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Garden Boy Mirror

It doesn't work for me. All I see is a blank white screen. Does it work for anyone else? Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:58, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Yes. Try giving it a minute or two. It's a bit of a file. Took a while to load up when it was the actual fanstuff, too. --DorianGray 04:41, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

fun fact

whats this about clicking the F over and over and having the caption move up? i tried and tried and cant make anything move anywhere. -Jdhannan 22:43, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

It works for me. I think you just have to click really fast. Has Matt? (talk) 23:08, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
You have to do it when you open Fanstuff for the first time after loading the main page-- 00:20, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

strongbadgirlsquadstume, not StrongBadGirlSquadstume

Okay, since the XML source code now has the tag "<fanstuff>trogdor smash bros level</fanstuff>" and not the previous one, would it now be a good time to change last week's description to lowercase? Ya gotta match the image and be consistent.

No. Never. Screw consistancy. Keeping it caps preserves the XML's writing of it, showing a noteworthy deviation from the standard. You might as well say, "Okay, now that that Quote of the Week isn't there anymore, we should change the transcript to say "I say tomatermorts" instead of "I zader matermorts"." That's not how it works. The XML shows the true intent of how the caption was to be written, and as we don't have a record of each XML change (save for the history of Weeklies XML), the fanstuff/sketchbook sections should document the change instead. After all, this isn't the first time this has happened either. --DorianGray 04:45, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
Is it possible to depict the text in the "text" column as it was seen by visitors, and then comment that the XML was different? I don't know about you, but I don't think visitors care what the XML says, they care what the text looks like. That's why everyone and their sister seems to want to change it. Regarding your example, Dorian, we saw the text as "zadermorts" so there was never an argument on that one. This one, we see something different than what's in the code. That's notable. But this is not a "XML Code" column, it's a "text" column, and as such it should reflect the text we see. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 07:22, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. I was against the caps the first time I saw that they were put in. Qermaq made all the points I had and more. OptimisticFool 14:51, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
And where does the text come from? The XML code. The end. --DorianGray 19:17, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
If there's a difference between capitalization in the XML code and the actual viewed page (which is all the probably 95% of the page-viewers bother looking at), then I think it's notable. The only reason it wouldn't be, in my opinion, is if anything in the XML code is automatically converted to lowercase in the page view. If that's the case, then yes, let's capitalize it as the XML had it. But Dorian, please, we're all mature adults here. There's no need to be rude over something like this. Onamuji (b/w T. C.  ) 19:44, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
No, it's not the end, "name I can't call you here but I bet you can figure it out". The displayed text - the words Joe Fan sees - is different from the text embedded away in the XML. As such, the more prominent, visible, associatable text is not capitalized. No one but you and your loser friends looks at the XML. (that was a joke, not a putdown) The displayed text should be what is in the Text column. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:11, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
Hm. I really can't tell if you mean me or Dorian, Qermaq. Lol? Anydangway, I've been looking around at the weeklies wiki page and source codes and such, and it occurred to me: we don't cut the visible text off our picture of the picture. Anyone looking at the picture in question can, indeed, see the text as it appeared to Joe User. So, then, why not capitalize the text as it appears in the XML? After all, if all we're going to do is repeat the text exactly as it is two inches to the left...what's the point of having the column at all? (And I apologize in advance for my sig doing this. Dang nowrap command. I'm working the kinks out.)Onamuji (b/w T. C.  ) 20:19, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
Ooh, extra point I just thought of--since the text column is kind of useless if it just copies the text on the picceh (and I had thought that even before being a registered user), why don't we just change the label to "XML Code Text" and perhaps make it a link to the relevant wiki page? Onamuji (b/w T. C.  ) 20:21, 15 March 2008 (UTC) again
If we are going to document the XML code, the column title should reflect that. We should also reflect the text as seen on screen for usability reasons. So both shopuld be noted, but primarily the onscreen text, and secondarily the XML which I and most fans do not ever see. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:24, 15 March 2008 (UTC)


I just noticed something, the Brawl level is japanese because R.O.B. is named Robot in his health boxHooray4Trogdor 22:06, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

I was thinking that seemed strange, as well. Great jaerorb putting "Robot" and "Japanese version" together, I...I'm a bad Nintendo fanboy. Anyway, the question is, is this noticable, and if so, how do we note it? --Onamuji (b/w T. C.  ) 22:15, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
Well, it's pretty blurry and the text is small, but it still looked longer than R.O.B.(I only knew that because of Wikipedia, look it up)Hooray4Trogdor 00:05, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

How do I Send Fanstuff?

If you wanted to send something in, what email would you send it to? "strongbad's email"? or is there one specifically for fanstuff? — Jezzamon 00:11, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

I believe you send it to TBC's email, which can be found on the Email page. --DorianGray 00:16, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! I was going to make this fake record from around the 60's and then title it Homsar, but I probably won't get time. Someone else can do it though. — Jezzamon 23:40, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
Looking back, should we mention this in the article? – Jezzamon 12:08, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
I have to agree on that, it should be mentioned at the top of the weekly fanstuff page (really, for the current year.) ColdReactive

Bead Clock

Fanstuff clock

Right now we're comparing these two things. I don't think they are similar enough to determine that it was the intention of the creator of the fanstuff clock to match the look of the Strong Bad Clock. OptimisticFool 02:50, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

I belive this is what it is:


It's the icon for the Strong Bad Clock in My Documents or whatever. SuperfieldCreditUnion

Trogdor coat of arms blazon

The blazon would more properly be "Or, Trogdor Statant," since Trogdor doesn't have forelimbs. In this case, Trogdor isn't green, one could argue that therefore it should be "Trogdor Sable". But that depends on whether the given coat of arms is in error or the blazon. "Dragon" in this case is insufficient, since Trogdor is sufficiently different from heraldic dragons as to require more specificity (heraldic dragons don't have beefy arms coming out of their backs).

True enough, but I've seen plenty of different heraldic dragons. Trogdor definitely is a dragon, and the beefy arm could be considered his forelimb. I'd still go for a dragon rampant. Also, Trogdor is green, it's just a very dark green, probably because of the camera used. The only thing I haven't figured out to blazon are the crenelations on top of the shield.

Epic Fail Project- Homespore Runner

  • ...Yeah, about the Homespore Runner on the Weekly Fanstuff...that DOESN'T even look ANYTHING like Homestar Runner. For now, I would consider it an Epic Fail. -Ümläut76 (The C Zone · Talk here!)

This seems to be a forum subject. The HRWiki is devoted to having a full encyclopedia of Homestar Runner available on the internet. Personal comments do not meet the wiki standards. Try out the forums. He can't say job. Don't say jorb 101 Seriously, he can't say job!


As of today, (1/12/09)

The fanstuff is messed up. It's the banjo kazooie car with the "The Cheat on Cell Phone?" caption. Don't know if it's just me, so I thought 'd post here first.

It's not just you, I assure you. In fact, I think this is the third place this discussion is taking place. --DorianGray 05:36, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Sorry. I don't exactly go on the forums, and I didn't see it here.

Not a problem. We're aware of the thing what actually is the problem, though, although I have no advice (being one of the affected myself). --DorianGray 22:17, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Mirror needed for this week's Fanstuff

Considering that the last time the Weekly Fanstuff consisted of an animation (29 Nov 2007), a mirror was uploaded to the HRWiki server, could someone who's good at uploading mirrors do so for this week's? Alternatively, could we convert it into an animated GIF instead? – The Chort 17:16, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

They've updated the Weekly Fanstuff. I really, really hope someone out there saved a mirror for that Dangeresque Fanimation, because the current link has been deleted. – The Chort 19:50, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
The animator has posted it YouTube channel as part of a compilation of his other 2D animation. The Gardenboy animation was also posted. wbwolf (t | ed) 19:58, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
That's not the original file though. — Defender1031*Talk 20:11, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
But it may be the closest thing we've got, in which case it might have to do. So, does anybody have a mirror? Surely someone did. - 00:40, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Yep, they did. - 02:19, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Sounds Ace Cake'd, alright.

Can we confirm that the cake is really by Mary Alice? If not, could I at least add "alledgedly made by" to the description?--Jellote wuz here 13:40, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Reportedly, the Pom Pom cake was on TV, but the pictures are no longer on the website. At this point, the description should stand as is. wbwolf (t | ed) 15:06, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Here's an Egg!

I just sent to TBC a painting of Strong Bad's head lying on its side. It was actually made by my sister as part of an art class she took, so all credit goes to her. I thought it could be called "Here's an Egg!", referring both to Where's an Egg? and Eggs. I was just wondering, though, what's the process of doing pictures like these?
