The paper, this is looking dark, right now email #172, and at the end, the paper comes out wrinkled, ripped, etc. and strongbad comes out and says "whoa, thats not a good sign" and he mutters about something. This is probably a sign about the papers demise, im sure that the paper will be replaced. But hey, ya never know the odds of something, like this onetime i found a 100 dollar (it was real) on the ground of a parkinglot. Can you think of the odss of that happening? exactly! the same odds could happen to the paper. But nothing will expose the truth...except time. weve got a week left, prepare the feuneral, Paper. I see a dark 7 last days of King of the Ring, becareful. You never konw whats gonna happen. *plays feuneral music* oh, Paper, I pine for thé ;_; {{unsigned|70.187.152.28}}

Those are awsome. I couldn't have done it better myself. Yea, feel free to continue uploading floppy disk screens, I'm being kept pretty busy with the floppy disk summaries anyways, so thats great that it frees up my time. I also like the 'King of Screenshots' title. I'm glad someone noticed. Please, feel free to "continue and... not stop". Me and you, we're gonna clean up this wiki. Whereever there is no pic, we will create a dozen in it's place! Hahahahaha!

Well thank you for the compliment. Yea, that one was kind of hard to get, when I realized the old box was no more, I switched to another browser which wasn't updated yet, and snagged the screenshot before it was too late. Then a few hours later, when I had time, I tried to get the new screen. I was trying to think of how to get just a generic shot of it, when I realized that the first time or two, when you open it, it took a second to load, and had the generic title of homestar saying that quote, just on the picture. But you couldn't hear it. Of course I didn't notice that until it had already loaded. So once again I switced browsers, and managed to grab that one a few seconds before it loaded too. Since it was on the [[Main Page 9]], the paper one, the background was mostly white, so I was able to just edit out the non-white parts by filling in the parts that weren't shadowed. Thank you for your notice of a rather difficult screen. Btw, I've started a new section that requires alot of screens, I haven't really done any yet, Firebird has been taking care of that, but it's [[Halloween Costumes|here]] if you want to help.

I come bearing good news on [[The Paper]] front. I was a little astonished when I heard that the paper would only survive 55 episodes, or one year. However, if you take a sample year, such as the e-mail [[labor day]] to the release of the toon [[Labor Dabor]], only 31 emails transpired. Therefore, by those calculations, with [[Teen Girl Squad]], [[Marzipan's Answering Machine]], [[Powered By The Cheat]], [[The Cheat Commandos]], and other e-mail replacements, I belive that The Paper has a better chance of surviving for one year and about 40 weeks or so, making it's date of possible replacement circa September 5th, 2006, or late summer/early fall or so. That's my prediction anyways. -- [[User:Thunderbird L17|Thunderbird]] 08:53, 26 Nov 2004 (MST)

True, but 2 years were more of predictions I think, and not neccisarilly fact. This seems like they're really gonna do at least... Something though. To name the e-mail by name, it seems alot more concrete than 'sometime in two years, [[Coach Z]] moves into Strongbadia' Just my humble opinion though...

Hi Paper! Thunderbird here again, with a special task for a few of my fellow users. On the [[Sketchbook]] page, in the [[Sketchbook#In The Museum|Museum]] section of that page, the last picture is a bunch of rejected halloween costume ideas. The caption gives the challenge '10 bucks to anyone who can identify them all'. So what I propose is to identify them all. I've already set up a basic 'top left to bottom right' type list under the 'Description' section, with the two most obvious costumes in it. But can we get the other costumes, and win ourselves $10? Any costumes you know would be a help. Thanks. [[User:Thunderbird L17|''<small><tt>[[User:Thunderbird L17|<font color=gold>⇔Thunderbird⇔</font>]]</tt></small>'']] 02:11, 2 Jan 2005 (MST)

:Update: The good Doctor Haggis was far faster with that task than I could have ever expected. All the costumes are done with the exception of one: The full body [[Marzipan]]. Many think that she is in fact Belle from Beauty & the Beast, but we're not quite sure about that. What are your thoughts? Any better ideas as to who this mystery Marzipans could be, or even just your opinion as to weather or not she's Belle?

Hey Pape, long time no see. Howsabout you helping me out with something, again? This time, it's a webpage. Namely, [http://www.homestarrunner.com/processing.html this one]]. If you're wondering where I got it from, check the [[Strong Bad Email]] Fun Facts section. Anyhoo, I was just trying to figure out if this was also linked to in some other way on the site, incorperated into a toon or whatnot. I recognize it, but can't figure it out. But that's all just sidestuff. The reason I chose to tell YOU about this, was the fact that it involves the paper to quite an extent, it's in a different venue, is chewed and torn repeatedly, and is actually seen to be PRINTED OUT!!! So yea, that's about the size of it. I added it to the Fun Facts, and I feel it should be meantioned somewhere in relation with [[The Paper]], but am unsure exactly where or how. Since you are the resident Paper expert on the Wiki, I figured I'd leave it in your capable hands. So what do you think we should do? Should we even make a seperate Printer page or something, since SHE's been meantioned on [[invisibility|other]] [[montage|occasions]] as well?

(P.S., on kinda a side topic, on the Paper page, under 'oddities', in 'invisibility', it meantions that the Printer is male, despite the paper being female. Then a comment is made that perhaps it is a refferance to computer parts being labled 'male and female' for obviousish reasons. So under the same line of resoning, Between a printer and it's paper, the Printer WOULD be female, and the Paper male. Get my drift? Anyways, if you want to somehow tactfully explain that on the page or whatnot, be my guest. But yea, there you go. There's my rambling done.)
