The Brothers Chaps have publicly acknowledged many Homestar Runner fansites, including the Homestar Runner Wiki. They've been known to drop by when fansites are celebrating anniversaries or other special occasions, and their messages are generally very positive and appreciative. This article provides a listing of known public acknowledgments of fansites by The Brothers Chaps and other contributors.

Homestar Runner Wiki Acknowledgments

  • On the DVD commentary for love poems, it is suggested that the email be categorised as a "Not Quite Teen Girl Squad", based on the Teen Girl Squad cutaway scene (in reference to the Not Quite Strong Bad Emails category). They also parody the fun fact categories, suggesting that Homestar's hair tucking into his sweater is "a goof, and a glitch, and a reference, and a real-world reference, and an inside reference".
  • The DVD commentary for rated talks about how the wiki unscrambled the image on the TV.
  • In the DVD commentary for pizza joint, Mike mentions learning about hammerspace from the wiki.
  • In the DVD commentary for mini-golf, one of the Brothers Chaps mentions learning the concept of the ouroboros from the wiki.
  • The DVD commentary for rough copy suggests that the appearance of the barbed wire costumes' negative space was listed as a goof on the wiki (it was not). They claim it to be a stylistic choice. They also jokingly suggest that most of their goofs are a "laziness choice".
  • "The Homestar Wiki" is thanked in the credits for all of the SBCG4AP games.
  • For over a year, the Wiki incorrectly reported that Mike Chapman did the voice of Mr. Bland. This was corrected after Matt Chapman revealed that this was a mistake during the hidden creators' commentary of Strongest Man in the World on the DVD Everything Else, Volume 3.
  • In the commentary for road trip, Karen Wagner thanked the Wiki for helping them keep their facts straight.
  • In the DVD commentary for the email boring (really), Matt Chapman said that the phrase Be's should have an entry on the Homestar Wiki. (It did.)
  • At the Georgia Tech talk, Matt talked briefly about the wiki during the presentation.
  • Karen Wagner sent a donation to the wiki during the 2007 Spring Fundraising Drive along with a sticky note.
  • The Brother Chaps' friend, Craig Zobel, who has done work on HomestarRunner.com, registered on the HRWiki Forum on January 15, 2007. He made a thread regarding his film "Great World of Sound".
  • In the DVD commentary for In Search of the Yello Dello Old Version, Matt Chapman (jokingly) claims that South Park ripped off the joke about Pitfall! from the cartoon. Peter Olsen replies with "put it on the wiki".
  • In the DVD commentary for Bug In Mouth Disease, Mike Chapman mentions that there was a misspelling on one of Bubs's business cards that was pointed out by the wiki. The word in question was "paranormal", which was misspelled as "paranaormal".
  • In the DVD commentary for Homestarloween Party, Mike Chapman briefly mentions that the Visor Robot was never officially named, but that they began calling it "Visor Robot" after the wiki informally gave it that name.
  • At the Flashforward conference, Matt talked briefly about the wiki during the presentation.
  • On November 18, 2005, Matt Chapman sent a personal letter to Homestar Runner Wiki proprietor JoeyDay, enclosed with the following note and several pages of sketches.
H*RWiki people!!

Homestar resource & fan
community!! We couldn't

The Cheat's angry eyes in it
without you guys! Here's
my "notes" from Jury
Duty!! - Matt C
  • In the DVD commentary for Strong Bad Sings, Matt Chapman wonders if the Fat Bluebird has a page on the wiki. (It didn't, at the time.)
  • On Halloween 2005, Mibluvr13 put together a virtual birthday card for Matt Chapman's 29th birthday with the signatures from various wiki and forum users. (View forum thread) Matt Chapman received the card and emailed her the following reply.
Thanks Chrissy and the rest of you! You guys rule. That card is awesome. And so is the wiki and all the hard work you folks put into it. We use it all the time when we can't remember stuff from our cartoons.

High fives all the times,
Matt
  • Jonathan Howe, The Brothers Chaps' chief programmer, suggested to Bobby Blackwolf to post his interview on the wiki. Bobby followed his advice as an anonymous contributor.
  • In the DVD commentary for the email animal, Mike Chapman states that they made a goof regarding segmented/compound eyes, and that they discovered their mistake by reading the wiki.
