Hello, and welcome to the Homestar Runner Wiki. (It's dot org!)

Welcome to the best place to learn everything about the cartoons on [HomestarRunner.com]. What's Homestar Runner, you ask? Well, if you don't know who Homestar Runner or Strong Bad are, then this place might be a little overwhelming for you. Feel free to look around and discover all the characters and toons, but if you want to understand what we're talking about, you really need to head over to [HomestarRunner.com] and start watching the toons. A good place to start is the [Strong Bad Emails]. A lot of the InsideJokes come from the Strong Bad Emails.

What's a wiki, you ask? Well, a wiki is a site where anybody--not just webmasters or members--can edit any page. Wikis are best used for collaborative knowledge-base type documents. For instance, one of the most successful wikis is the [Wikipedia].

What this means is that you could be an important author on the Homestar Runner Wiki. Know about some EasterEggs that might interest other users? Wanna help us transcribe every Homestar Runner cartoon created by The Brothers Chaps? Go ahead!

If you decide to stick around, use the Preferences link at the top of this page to set up a username (and get your very own free UserSpace). In addition, if you are a new user and just got a username, please put it on the bottom of the list at WikiUsers. Remember, you may only have one Username. Two is strictly against the rules.

To edit a page, click the link at the bottom of the page that reads "Edit this document". The "Summary of change" text field is for change summaries on RecentChanges.

If you ever have questions about this wiki, feel free to type them up in the HelpDesk page. A knowledgeable person will most likely provide you with an answer within a few minutes. If you have any suggestions for how we can improve the site, please let us know on the WikiIdeas page. This wiki is absolutely free, no money is ever paid unless one wants to donate for web hosting, but nothing is required. We hope you'll feel welcome here amongst fellow fans of the greatest cartoon of all time.

Wiki Etiquette

If you're still unsure of how stuff works around here, check out WikiGettingStarted. There you will learn how to make bold , italics , and other wiki stuff. Out of courtesy, you really shouldn't edit pages unless you are adding something meaningful (fixing grammar and spelling mistakes is okay). You also shouldn't delete pages unless you have an extremely good reason. If you want to play around and get a feel for editing pages, please do so in the WikiSandbox.

The Wikipedia has a great [WikiCivics] section. They cover a lot of information about what is accepted and what is not accepted on a wiki. There are really no rules, but there is a definite level of etiquette involved. Some of the suggestions they offer are only relevant to the Wikipedia, but many of them apply to any wiki. Anyone interested in being a valuable contributor to any wiki should read them.

A Warning

Above all, never use defamatory language or deface documents we have worked hard to create. Note that the wiki gives everyone the ability to revert documents back to their original state. Therefore, no one can permanently harm the wiki by deleting pages. All an offender will accomplish is to slightly annoy our wiki community, and after repeated defacings our administrators will permanently block the offender's IP address. If any defamatory language is seen it will be changed or deleted.

Thank-you for visiting The Homestar Runner Wiki! We would love to have you as a member!
