Ding! Yearbook Character Page is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.

Odd. Even without the "www" the links worked for me. - Dr Haggis - Talk 22:30, 27 Jan 2005 (MST)

I left him a message on his Talk page (he's been doing this to other pages). I don't know why he's wasting his time; the "www" is always optional. --Jay 22:32, 27 Jan 2005 (MST)
I've read that there can be problems with URLs that don't begin with www.WHATEVER or http://WHATEVER. Maybe he's having problems like that. mathgrant 23:02, 27 Jan 2005 (MST)
Yeah, this sounds like it might be specific to a certain browser or something. Either way works for me. -- Tom 12:22, 28 Jan 2005 (MST)
This shouldn't be an issue anymore. What with the new Interwiki links and all! --THE PAPER 17:09, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Marzipans book

Is it just me or is Marzipan reading the book backwards? Surely the way she is turning the pages would bring her to the front of the book, and the position of the title makes it unlikely to be a Japanese or other right to left reading culture book (edit: oops, forgot the siggy) DumbMuscle 21:52, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

She is. It's noted on the page's fun facts. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 21:55, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
That's actually pretty common in cartoons, though I don't know why. I assume laziness has something to do with it. --Fourth of Jay (Fireworks!) 22:06, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
Oh yeh, guess I was expecting it in remarks rather than goofs (an example of Marzipan's wierdness rather than a mix up) DumbMuscle 22:32, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
There is the remote explanation that the book is in a language where books go that way, and the title is misprinted. But it was probably just an animation goof. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:35, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Hand Writing

Hey, doesn't Strong Bad have another hand than the one he usually writes in here? Marvelrulez 17:03, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Links: Why come so many?

So, there are a lot of links. Now, HRWiki:Standards says that there should be little to no links in a transcript. However, there are maybe two links per character page. This is problem, yeah? So, we could either a) move all links to the Fun Facts section b) move some links to the Fun Facts section and delete the obvious or unnecessary ones c) move some links to the Fun Facts section and keep the obvious or unnecessary ones d) delete all transcript links or e) leave the page alone, which would unfortunately go against the standards.

What, are you talking about the links to the characters? Those are fine, since this is a special case (not a transcription of the spoken words in a toon, but a record of a written item). As such, there is no cast list, and this is the most logical way to link to all the characters. "No links in a transcript" mostly refers to linking running-gag pages and such.

More specifically, it means "no links in dialogue". Links in stage directions and headings are perfectly fine. --DorianGray 22:50, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] So who's yearbook is this, anyway?

Logically, judging by the characters' autographs, the yearbook belongs to some girl within the school. It's worth noting that the page was made in the very early stages of the site. Also, if you consider Strong Sad's statement that he'll never see her again, and the way that Homestar Runner wrote all nervously... my guess is that it belongs to the Homeschool Winner.

Sounds like a good forum topic to me. --DorianGray 20:55, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Huh?

On the page, it doesn't say where you can find this little feature, no matter if it's on the site hidden somewhere, or if it on a DVD, or anything. Please explain where this is located and put it on the article page, please!

See the external links section. — It's dot com 23:40, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

[edit] 718

By the way, just explaining my inclusion of the phrase about hip-hop references to area code 718: My first thought was, "That's strange, the others are just 123 etc. Is there some significance to 718?" The fact that it's referenced in 8 or so songs and an album title seems "potentially" significant, given that hip hop has been known on occasion to appear in H*R works ... but not a clear enough situation for a "Real-World Reference." Yeah, it would make a lot more sense if attached to Coach Z. Hm. AbdiViklas 21:07, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

If you read the language of Pom pom's entry, I think that it's a reference to hip hop itself. Slang Phrases like "His IQ is off the charts" and "His sharp wits often get ol' Homestar out of some pretty tight jams" and of course his 27 girlfriends all point to Pom pom being the hero in his own hip-hop song. :) --Stux 13:30, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
The phrases that got me convinced were "I don't mean to call Homestar stupid or nothin" and "for sure and for true". — Defender1031*Talk 14:17, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

[edit] Found a goof

Most of the characters' pictures aren't really black and white. For instance, if you zoom in onto Coach Z's picture, you can see some colors from his hat and uniform. --95.5.20.155 22:26, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

We don't consider little stuff like that which is only visible in the flash file goofs, since the site was not intended to be viewed that way. — Defender1031*Talk 22:35, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
