[edit] Keep?

I'm not really against this page's existence, but I don't support it either. It doesn't seem to match the stuff we usually document on this wiki. I thought a discussion should be started before the page is improved or deleted. Should we have pages for animation sprites? If so, should any other characters be documented this way?

I think we should have more animation sprite and method pages. I also think we should include a section on this page for Homestar's eyes. Pac2005 (Talk | contribs) 20:31, 16 March 2019 (UTC) (left unsigned)
That makes sense, but how do we decide which pages to create? Where does it end? Obviously we can't make a page for, say, Bozar's mouth movements. There should be consistent guidelines to determine which animation sprites warrant pages. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 03:35, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
I agree that this fills a niche on the site - for instance, Homestar Runner Evolution notes when he gains a new facial expression. As far as inclusion, at most we can include main characters who demonstrate a variety of expressions. We already denote irregular expressions for other characters (e.g. The Cheat Smiling), and many characters have such a limited range of expressions due to their design that having their own page is unnecessary. Perhaps an arbitrary number - like, "more than five unique expressions gets their own page". — Bleu Ninja 20:59, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
I see this as the sort of thing that's "interesting, though not article-worthy", à la Analysis of Homsar's Speech Patterns. RickTommy (edits) 00:52, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
I agree with RickTommy. This sort of thing might be interesting as, like, an animation guide or a model sheet. But we're not one of those, we're an encyclopedia. Some minutae is a bit too over-detailed, even for us. I'd be accepting of moving it to, say, a gallery on Homestar Runner Evolution, but not a whole table in a whole article. --DorianGray 01:20, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
I think we should expand this page into "Homestar Runner's Anatomy", where how the sprites are rigged together is documented as well as stuff like these faces. - Anonymous Contributor
That sounds like an animation guide to me. Interesting to those with certain hobbies, but a little outside the current scope of the wiki. I think I agree with RickTommy and DorianGray on this one. But feel free to mock something up in the sandbox to give us an idea of the page you're proposing. Lira (talk) 17:50, 9 December 2019 (UTC)
