2015

  • On October 23rd, the wiki logo was changed to an animated gif of the Jibblies Painting. After a few seconds, the text "COME ON IN HERE" fades in.
  • The view counter at the bottom of the page was changed from "This page has been accessed X times" to "This page has given X people the jibblies".
  • The blue box on the main page was changed to an orange box. The introduction and some of the fanstuff portals and their descriptions were Halloween-themed.

2016

  • The logo was changed three times:
    • First, to an animated gif of The Goblin, similar to last year's. After a few seconds, he looks around and does a dance.
    • When the teaser was released, the logo was changed again to Homestar's silhouette with an orange and black background.
    • When Homestar's costume was revealed in Later That Night..., the logo was changed to another animated gif, featuring the previous silhouette logo revealing itself. After a few seconds, he turns into a music note, as he does in the toon.
  • The main page was changed to have a black gradient background, orange links, and an image of Homsar as the "Noony Noony Noo" Typewriter Guy from Jibblies 2.

2017

  • Like the previous two years, the logo was changed to an animated gif of a Halloween character— in this case, Large Bean. (After a few seconds, the background ominously turns red and his head flumps over to the side.)
    • After Large Bean was featured in a Skills of an Artist episode, the logo was changed to that drawing of Large Bean. The gif was otherwise the same, except that Large Bean's head fell off instead of flumping over, due to the lack of a chair for his head to lean against.
  • For the first time, the main page was automatically changed, as there had been a main page redesign earlier that year.
  • The forum was decorated for Halloween, with orange and black headers and icons, and the characters' emoticons wore costumes from previous toons. The Goblin and the Jibblies Painting were also added as emoticons.

2018

  • Continuing the tradition, the logo was changed to an animated gif of a Halloween character— in this case, Jaundiced Jerry and Stabby Gabby from the previous year's toon, Haunted Photo Booth. (Every few seconds, a camera flash transition alternates between the two characters.)
  • As per usual, the main page was automatically changed.
  • The forum was again decorated for Halloween, although it was a new forum, so the theme had to be remade. Like last year, the Goblin and the Jibblies Painting were added as emoticons, and the characters' emoticons wore costumes from previous toons, but different costumes than last year.

2018

  • The logo was changed to the picture on the left. This year, Decemberween inherited Halloween's long-running tradition of having an animated GIF of a holiday-themed character. In this case, Stingy Relenque drinking a mug of Hot Jones.
  • As per usual, the main page was automatically changed.
  • The forum was decorated for Decemberween. The emoticons were the same as the previous Decemberween, except the "Homestar in his winter hat" emoticon was replaced by "The Homestar Runner in his winter hat".
