PomBook is a fake social network created by Tenerence Love on July 2nd, 2012. The name is a portmanteau of Pom Pom and Facebook. When the fanstuff was active, the reader would sign up as a Homestar Runner character (or fan character), and Tenerence Love would create the character's page. All characters' pages are accessed through the Sign Up page. Each page has an image of the character, a quote, and a list of information (Age, Lives in, Best Friend, Hobbies), and a list of posts. Posts can be made on any character's page through the use of specific templates, and those posts can be commented on or liked. Questions for the character can be posted on their talk page. In addition to the Sign Up link, the home page links to Chat, Help, and Credits. The Chat page includes a widget that embeds a #PomBook IRC channel onto the page. The Help page includes instructions for posting, liking, and commenting. The Credits page credits Tenerence Love for creating PomBook, and Gfdgsgxgzgdrc for making the like button. Over time, Tenerence Love became inactive, meaning new pages couldn't be created. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc created a sequel, PomBook 2, six years later. PomBook currently has four official accounts, and seven post-inactivity registrations. (more...)

PomBook 2 is a fake social network created by Gfdgsgxgzgdrc as a sequel to the original PomBook by Tenerence Love — a portmanteau of Pom Pom and Facebook. It was started on November 25, 2017 (over five years after the first), and finished on January 1, 2019. It was mostly created because the old PomBook's creator became inactive, so new accounts couldn't be created. The second reason was because Gfd believed he could make a better version, with a nicer design and more convenient user experience. Like the previous iteration, users may sign up as a Homestar Runner character (or fan character), and the fanstuff's creator (in this case, Gfd) will create the character's page. Each page has an image of the character, a cover photo (The Field by default), a list of information (Age, Birthday, Job, etc.), and a list of posts. Posts can be made on any character's page through the use of a template, and those posts can be commented on or liked. Accounts can be accessed through the front page. PomBook 2 is also more interactive and immersive than the first PomBook. For example, the front page changes depending on whether you're signed in or not, and who you're signed in as. Using the post template will fill in the character's name, date, and profile picture without having to type it in. The fanstuff has a more website-like look, with an orange color scheme. (more...)

Homestar Emails is an email show created on January 14, 2012. It features Homestar Runner checking Homestar-themed versions of Strong Bad Emails, in order (for example, the first one is some type of marshmallow, based on some kinda robot). All of the emails are slight variations of the originail sbemails, sometimes with minimal changes, including the titles. It was created by Gfdgsgxgzgdrc, but he abandoned it on March 26, 2016, after the eighth email (making it the first abandoned fanstuff on the wiki). On June 23, 2016, Branderson asked for the rights to the email show, and Gfd agreed. Branderson wrote two more emails, and the email show currently has ten. (Since ten is such a small number, the email show currently only features old, Tandy 400-era emails.) Branderson also added an inbox, so readers could submit their own emails. (more...)

Bubs Email is an email show created on April 27, 2015 by the wiki user Bubs (at the time, CoachErinStrongSad). It features Bubs checking emails on an unknown computer. It includes some of the creator's fan characters, such as Bubs's wife Babs, and his son Bubs Jr. It currently has five emails; childhood, the thnikkaman, concession stand, original bubs, and onion. All emails have been submitted by real users via an inbox page. It has been on hiatus since March 13, 2016, due to the creator leaving the wiki. (more...)

Homestripe Runner Emails is an email show created on October 24, 2013 by MrMenCentral. It features MrMenCentral's fan character Homestripe Runner checking emails on the Zlappy SQ6. In addition to Homestripe himself, the show includes the rest of the creator's fan characters, such as Homestripe's sister Slipstar and and his cousin Pandora, among many others. It currently has eight finished emails, and eight more that are listed on the page but have not been created. Although most of the emails are made up by MrMenCentral, some are submitted by other users via an inbox page. The show has seemingly ended, as it hasn't been updated since January 6, 2016, and a reboot was created on July 18, 2017. The reboot currently includes one email, who are you, and hasn't been updated since October 14, 2017. (more...)
