[edit] Name?

Perhaps we could change the name? Maybe "Logos on Shirts"? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 01:56, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

how about just "logos" or "signs" or "Flags"(not likely)
I think logos is the best, because some are just that, such as Videlectrix and pistols for pandas
I think Logos would work. Homestar-Winner (talk) 14:33, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

On second thought, maybe something like Medallions would work better. Homestar-Winner (talk) 14:36, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

but some aren't medals.ex.Videlectrix

The title "insignia" is definitely inappropriate, as these represent symbols of power. After looking at Wikipedia:Logo, the word Logo reflects Commericial use. This applies to probably less than half of the entries in this page. I think the more generic Symbol would be a more appropriate term to describe all entries, but I think renaming the page to Symbols and Logos would be the most fitting (the pages Symbols and Logos can then be redirected here). The page of course, would have to be restructured accordingly. --Stux 19:38, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

I've gone ahead and renamed the page. I'll be renaming the sections accordingly. I'll also be making the redirects at a later time). --Stux 10:07, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Delete

This page is getting ridiculous. It's all over the map. These aren't all insignias. And a rename wouldn't help; they aren't all slogans, they aren't all logos, they aren't all on shirts, they aren't all band names. Delete. OptimisticFool 02:19, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

I like it. If we can find all of the examples of insignias, then I think this would be a good page to have. Though I do agree that we should rename it. Homestar-Winner (talk) 03:51, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
It's too insignificant to keep. Awexome 04:38, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
The signs show who they are. if you see the signs on someone or something you know what group they are in. — (Talk | contribs) 03:23, 23 November 2007 (left unsigned)
Insignias on Wikipedia say that they are "a token of power or ranking." Homestar's Star, and Coach Z's emblem aren't rankings or medals. I think we should keep this page, but it needs a better name, because they're not really insignias. TheCoolBot 12:53, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
That's only one definition. Wikipedia's article deals with that only. According to, it can also mean "a distinguishing mark or sign" which this page definitely deals with. So keep and retain name. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 18:45, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
On further reflection, perhaps "Identifying Marks" is better. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 18:48, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
As the creator I think that is a great idea Fusion-homstar (Talk | contribs) 20:21, 23 November 2007 (UTC) (left unsigned)
Nope. Pointless. Delort! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:49, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
Can you explain why you think it's pointless? I'm leaning towards keep myself, but if it's going to stay, it needs some major cleanup. Some of the things listed (Marshie, Bubs' Concession Stand sign) aren't insignias, logos or anything. Has Matt? (talk) 23:10, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure what i can add at this point other than keep and that i agree with qermaq that we should rename it Identifying marks. --Acam30 16:21, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, Identifying Marks does sound good. Though the next time someone gives an idea, I will probably agree with it also. Homestar-Winner (talk) 22:07, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
I doubt that someone will search for identifying marks, Though it makes sense to call it that. 21:16, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

I can see some merit in this page, but as it stands, it seems pretty sloppy and disjointed. I don't think renaming it "Identifying Marks" would really work, either. This list is essentially a mishmesh of logos/words on shirts, signs, and mascots, and there doesn't seem to be much of an overall connection between them all... -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 01:17, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Delete. All of these things can be adequately mentioned--which is to say, mentioned at all--on the respective pages of all these characters. This page serves no purpose. If someone wants to look up something about one of the characters and what sort of sign they have on them, they're going to go to their page, not to this one.--Big Dog 06:40, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Keep. The information has been organized a bit better now that it is in table format and has samples of the symbols/logos in question. I believe it is now enough to stand on its own two feet and have its discussion tag removed. It could, of course, use more content :). --Stux 14:10, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Keep. Now that much love and care brought this article to where it is now, It deserves to stay. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 19:53, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
With this page now having a better and more appropriate title, as well as a nice-looking table as opposed to a clumsy-looking list, we have a winner. Could use a few better images, though, showing just symbols rather than the entire characters, but beyond that, it's good. Keep -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 22:22, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Now that the article had gone a major cleanup, would any of the opposer want to comment? Or anyone else for that matter. The article Had just been through a major change, but it's still up for discussion. Please help decide. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 12:28, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

I would like to keep it. I don't see why people always need to downgrade the wiki - one that pops into mind is Matt Cake, which was included to this massive list, which is not the way to provide information. This article is informative and its deletion would mean that this information would be scattered all around the wiki. No, no, no. Nope. What? No. So keep. --Sysrq868 12:41, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

It's been a while since anyone last posted here, and the consensus seems to be that now that the page has been renamed and cleaned up, that it's worth keeping, so can we remove the {{tbd}} now? -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 07:13, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

I still think it's the worst article on the wiki; it's still all over the map. (And the names "homsar" and "carol" are symbols/logos!?) If we keep this article, I won't be touching it with a 50-foot pole. OptimisticFool 03:52, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Format

I don't really like the format of the page currently, i.e. the X has Y for all of them. It doesn't flow well. Maybe a table format? Like, columns for symbol, character, and (maybe) description, or picture? Something like that... That is, if this page isn't gonna be deleted. -DAGRON 12:38, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

I think you're right. A table will be far more appropriate for this. It can hold more info and as a plus, we'll have a good place to put an image for each entry. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 13:10, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Hm. I agree. A table is probably the best way this page would work. It'd be more standard, it'd be neat to look at, and it wouldn't look as forced and (frankly) amateurish as it is at present. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 02:47, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
The list is now in table format, similar to that of Fonts. It should looks better now and less deletion-y. Some of the image samples could be blown up and re-uploaded.

[edit] One band

What about Taranchula?It got its own logo too!Katonator3000 02:33, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Be bald. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 08:16, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] The King of Crown

Does the KoT's crown really belong here? (My answer: No.) --Jay (Talk) 18:16, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

I agree. It's the "Waldo" of this page (ie.The one thing that doesn't belong). If we remove it, we should then give an explanation specifying the wiki's definition of Symbols (and Logos). But, before we do that, we should probably see what the wiki's definition of Symbols and Logos is. DevonM(talkยทcont-ribs) 18:36, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Cleanup

I've put the {{cleanup}} message at the top of this page because this article could use some general cleanup, including grammar, spelling, and making sentences. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 07:11, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

[edit] H*R Logo

I think we should add that awesome new Homestar Runner logo on Main Page 24 and 25. -Absorr|Homestar Runner Wiki is a must 22:59, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

If we add that, we should also add the traditional h*r logo, the upside-down logo from Dancin' Bubs, the outline logo from Main Page 23, and the SB and KOT logos from their respective characters' main pages. BBG 23:05, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
No, not really. Even if, we can put those in. I mean, there are only 5 we would have to add! -Absorr|Homestar Runner Wiki is a must 23:22, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Arturo 9000!

We need to add this hremail computer called Arturo 9000! -Absorr|Homestar Runner Wiki is a must 23:13, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Countries in Strong Badia the Free

It seems that the flags are described well enough on that page to not need to be repeated here. — Defender1031*Talk 19:29, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
