[edit] Why it's not loading

  • The page doesn't load because the actual .swf doesn't exist. The .swf file needs to be there for it to load. -- 01:31, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Cleanup

This page may need to be re-written completely. For example, "For some odd reason" and "What is it?" are phrases and headings we shouldn't use at all. Loafing 01:35, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Why don't people know?

Why don't people know which toons menu is the 1st? Or games? Shouldn't people know? People should know what it looks like if they went on the site. How did they find the toon's name and description anyway.--ONESTOP 00:36, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

You can add the information yourself. The preserved flash file is available via Wayback Machine. — Lapper (talk) 00:42, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
Lapper - is that the right one? Isn't that the lava lamp one, which came later? Speaking for myself, I've only followed H*R since '02. Anything before that, I do not know first-hand. Even if I did, once you go back a few years it's all doodle memory anyway. I think the article is saying that this is the earliest menu we know of. And while the Flash file does not load, the HTML file contains information on the Flash file, that's how that is known. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 09:59, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
i've switched the html with swf before and i got the lava lamp toon menu... does that mean they are the same thing?!?! and how DID we learn about the links and descrptions!?! and how could the html name be "toonsold" without changing it!?!? this is a big mistery

[edit] "old" and "toons"

Could the title be a reference to Kick the Can's page title? Could this mean that this might be an Old-Timey toons menu?--ONESTOP 13:54, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Internet wayback machine

I'm crawling through the internet wayback machine's archives of H*R to try to find something about this. [[User: Poopskin/about|DOSEI-SAN!Image:Saturn.gif) 14:20, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] rename?

I was thinking we could be more specific than this, maybe renaming it something like "Blank Toons Menu?" Religious Corn   23:05, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit] toonsold

This could be the HTML file for the Lava Lamp Toons Menu. See how the HTML and SWF are called "toonsold" but it points to "toons.swf" in the page source? That is because when they deprecated the Lava Lamp menu, they renamed the files but forgot to point the HTML to the new name of the SWF in the source. Dagoth 05:13, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

  • And it most likely mentions Pom Pom Too because it's from an older version of the SWF which mentioned it. Dagoth 10:39, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
