This is just awesome!!! I REALLY wanted to use the original wiki, but unfortunately, I was too late. Should we link this on the regular wiki? BubsHeadStand

What do you mean? It's linked on my user page. --Leilana Lappy! (Chat) 19:53, August 10, 2011 (EDT)

I think he/she means to put a link on the main page. — Oh, Times, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 15:43, December 28, 2011 (EST)

A friendly hello

Hello, I'm a veteran of the original Fanstuff Wiki, and would just like to say that I hope this place will thrive if ever the Brothers Chaps take back to their game. It was a long and bumpy ride, especially through the purge for us, and I hope this place doesn't go through the same. I respect what you're doing, and fully condone the act of creating this; the people need a creative outlet, and this opens up a whole new door to those who wish to make Homestar Runner fanstuff, but arrived at the wiki too late. Good luck!

Swarthily,

Fanstuff of the Week

The Homestar Runner Wiki has a "Featured Article of the Week", Why not make a "Fanstuff of the Week" here? I was going to make it myself, But I wanted to get people to agree first. (PS: I changed the wiki logo.) — Oh, Times, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 09:59, January 17, 2012 (EST)

I agree!--Cee gee 15:27, January 18, 2012 (EST)
Good! Atleast someone agrees. — Oh, Times, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 18:20, January 18, 2012 (EST)

Actually...I changed my mind about the "Featured Fanstuff" thing. No more WeeklyFeaturedFanstuff. — Oh, Times, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 18:58, January 26, 2012 (EST)

I can continue it if you like. If it's just once a week I can handle that (since i'm on vacation). Can I have permission to make the featured fanstuff... stuff? I don't even need to edit the main page if it's just a template. Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 18:25, June 30, 2012 (EDT)

Okay, you can continue it. There's a lot more fanstuff on the wiki now. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc

Yikes! I'm wiped out... I think I need to take a break... That okay with you guys? I can continue in a couple of weeks. Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 12:41, July 27, 2012 (EDT)

More users

I noticed there isn't very many wiki-users on this wiki. Four isn't a lot. How do we get more users? — Oh, Times, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 10:43, February 5, 2012 (EST)

Okay, there are 410 articles on the wiki now... but the wiki still should be more popular. There's 6 sysops (Me, BHS, Cee gee, Tenerence, Micah) and about 7 normal users so...there's about 13 users on the wiki. Do you have any ideas how we could get more popular? 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
We've tried a lot... I dunno. Uh... We put a Google +1 widget on the front page?... A Facebook Like button?... A tweet button?... Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 14:13, August 28, 2012 (EDT)
Good job. I like it :D 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
Thanks! Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 18:11, August 28, 2012 (EDT)

New Logo?

It may be just me, but I think that the wiki needs a fresher logo, other than the one we have now. I designed one a while ago (like, in August) that's similar to the one in the knowledge base. I'll post it here once I've uploaded it. BubsHeadStand 12:05, February 11, 2012 (EST)

I changed the logo to your idea for you. — Oh, Times. Oh, Times, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (Let's talk! Cont) 14:56, February 11, 2012 (EST)

Questions?

I'm creating the HRFWiki2:About page, and I was thinking we could have a Q&A section there. So think of questions any newbies might have, post them here, and I'll post them on the page and do my best to answer them. And if you want, you can also add answers. Thanks! BHS · Talk to me

HRFWiki2:FAQ. (Also, thanks for creating all the portals!) — Oh, Times. Oh, Times, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (Let's talk! Cont) 10:07, March 5, 2012 (EST)
Already saw that, thanks for your help. And you're welcome! I'm always open for ways I can help this wiki. BHS · Talk to me
Me too! (Also, can you help me create the copyright templates? Thank you, if so.) — Oh, Times. Oh, Times, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (Let's talk! Cont) 21:50, March 5, 2012 (EST)
Finished. BHS · Talk to me

Test account

Just so you know...I will be creating another account named "Test" for testing the wiki and users, etc. It's not a real user, it's just a test user. — Oh, Times. Oh, Times, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (Let's talk! Cont) 13:53, March 6, 2012 (EST)

And why, exactly? BHS · Talk to me
Uh...I can't think of good words to explain. — Oh, Times. Oh, Times, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (T/C) 21:10, March 6, 2012 (EST)

hey

the users of the old fanstuff wiki found this place. you remind us of us when we were young. 04:17, July 6, 2012 (EDT)

Forum

I had an idea. What if we creat a montage create a forum? I created a forum using mediawiki. Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 01:01, July 11, 2012 (EDT)

You mean for the Homestar Runner Fanstuff Wiki 2? Hmmm...not a bad idea... 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
Yup. You got it. The original fanstuff wiki had a forum. So we should make one too! Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 15:55, July 11, 2012 (EDT)
It's officially up! http://fanstuff2forums.referata.com Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 16:29, July 11, 2012 (EDT)
What's the kitten thingy when you create an account? 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
Oh, sorry about that. That's referata's version of a captcha. I forgot to change it. Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 20:43, July 11, 2012 (EDT)
Changed to a question. Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 20:45, July 11, 2012 (EDT)

Siggy?

For some reason, I can't get my sig to come up with just the four-tilde thing. I'm having to manually type in {{User:BubsHeadStand/sig}}. Help? Somebody? The Cheat? BHS · Talk to me

"Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link)" should be checked in preferences. Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 21:29, July 14, 2012 (EDT)

Unused Images

I was browsing the images uploaded here, and I found a few images that were being unused. Not a big deal, but Referata allows 100 MB of storage for free wikis. If we go over that limit, we will have to start paying for this wiki. If the owner could please use these images, or delete them that would help. Currently we are using 20.5 MB of storage.

Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 14:16, July 25, 2012 (EDT)

Well, I'm planning on using P_Squared_House.png later. But I'll tell Cee gee and Leilana about the other five. BHS · Talk to me 14:45, August 5, 2012 (EDT)
K, they've been told. BHS · Talk to me 14:54, August 5, 2012 (EDT)

A new Fanstuff Wiki? Sign me up!

Hello all! I am Plastiware, known on the old, old wiki as Lazord. Some of you may remember me, but probably not. I mostly make games, so keep an eye out for a couple new pages in the Games section! - Plastiware 16:04, September 1, 2012 (EDT)

Hey hey, welcome to the wiki, Plastiware. Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 16:05, September 1, 2012 (EDT)
Welcome! to the Homestar Runner Fanstuff Wiki 2! 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc

Homestar Runner Account

I got a great idea! We (the sysops) can make an account on the HRFWiki2 and pretend it's a homestar runner character like Homestar or Strong Bad! 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc

Okay, but what would we use it for? Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 21:35, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
Just for fun. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
I know it's just for fun. What I mean is What actions will the user preform? Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 21:43, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
What do you mean by that? 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
I mean, once we create the account, it will just sit there. But in order to keep it from doing nothing, one of us controls it. What will we control it to do? Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 22:54, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
Well, any of the sysops (you, me, BHS, Cee gee- hey, that rhymes!) can control it to win textventures and stuff, but not create fanstuff. We can create a signature for him too. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
Hey, we should make a rap video! That sounds okay. Maybe we could have them comment on fanstuff too. Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 23:05, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
Okay. So we need to think of a password for him. This could be the signature: HstarR.png Homestar Runner NewestHomestar.png What do you think? 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
I like it. How about everybody meets in the IRC to discuss the password? Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 23:38, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
Good idea, Tenerence. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
When? 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
How about around midnight UTC time? Does that work? (For you to get an idea of what I mean, midnight October 1st UTC is 5 o'clock September 30th Pacific Time.) BHS · Talk to me
Or we could just PM eachother at the forum... 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc

Fontz

I'm not sure whether or not to keep the fonts. If anyone likes them, then they can keep 'em. If not, a sysop can change it right away. Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 02:39, March 15, 2013 (UTC)

Recent Spam

Hello fanstuff users, today I propose some measures that I think would be a good idea to take if we want to stop vandalism and spam on the wiki.

Recently, I've blocked a couple of anonnies because they have been advertising on here. Referata has been having the same problems for a while now, and I've been reverting them too, but I stopped a long time ago because it was just too overwhelming. Most of the advertisments are just random articles with external links to websites. I don't care to read them much because, well, it's spam; also, I don't read them because at my age, I don't really need insurance.

Anyway, my ideas are as followed:

  • Disable anonymous edits — We really need more users, why not make it so only users can edit? Worst case scenario, the vandals will create more accounts, and we will have to disable account creation without user-verification. (Sort of like the HRWiki.)
  • Black list — I'm not too sure, but if the spam-ber-tisments have something in common, (remember I don't read them) we can always blacklist a word or two that isn't mainly used with users as much as the vandals.
  • Golden Wiki?... — This is something a little bit different; what if we made another wiki, that was sort of the hall of fame of fanstuff. Like, all the finished work on this wiki gets put up to the wiki, and only admins can edit the wiki. (Like the original fanstuff wiki's Glorious Gravy Boat). That way, we can also have quality-control on that wiki. I don't know... It sounds like a big project, but if anyone can see it as a "good" idea maybe I/we can work on it.

Anyway, just my opinions. Any users are free to share their opinions. (I would also prefer that an admin or two shared his/her opinion.) *cough* I'm going to stop speakin' all official 'n stuff now...

Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 11:35, October 29, 2013 (EDT)

...Good idea, Tenerence. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc

April Fool 2014

I know I'm a month and a half early, but what should we do with the wiki for April Fools Day? Should we do what we did in 2012 (backwards writing)? 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc

AprilHomestarWiki.png
Hmm... I don't think I was on the wiki when that happened, but judging from the image here, that looks like a lot of work. I mean, if it's not too much work (because the wiki has grown so much) maybe we can do some mass April Fools Day joke. I'll reasearch it a little bit. But a couple years back I had an idea to flip the wiki upside-down with CSS. I'm not sure how accessible it will be, but if you want to see it, just edit User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/vector.css and paste this in there:

body {
    -moz-transform: rotate(180deg);
    -webkit-transform: rotate(180deg);
    -ms-transform: rotate(180deg);
    -o-transform: rotate(180deg);
    transform: rotate(180deg);
 }

And, if for some reason you can't get out of it (depending on your screen resolution), then use Google Chrome, and add this extension that allows you to disable CSS. Aaand to remove the code to flip everything upside down for you, just revert your CSS page back to nothing. And of course that's all if you want to test it out and see what it's like. Anyways, just saying that maybe this would be easier, but I would like to hear your take on it. Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 11:16, February 19, 2014 (EST)

Upside Down

Help, Tenerence! I did that upside-down thing and now everything on the wiki is upside down! Help! -Gfd

Hmm, I'm glad I'm seeing this sooner than later. I will revert your custom page seeming as you don't sound too hot. ;P Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 19:11, March 7, 2014 (EST)
Thanks a lot, Tenerence. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
You're welcome! So what did you think of the upside down CSS? I haven't tested it out fully on a real wiki yet so I'm not sure how it is, but I would like to hear your take on it. Tenerence Love Filetlovesig.png 20:02, March 8, 2014 (EST)

Images

I've been thinking, since we're running outta space here, maybe we should delete some unused or unwanted images. bubs.pngCoach Ecz.png

Yeah. I deleted the unused ones, but it didn't make any difference for some reason. — SBLOUNSKCHED!Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (Talk/Cont/Fanstuff) 17:05, June 12, 2015 (EDT)

The Fresh New Style

Dangtwice! It's finally happened! The new main page and logo and background everything look ultra-fine! I'm not seeing the favicon, though— just a white box with a capital R in it, which is probably the Referata logo. Maybe I'll be able to see it on mobile. But yeah, awesome jorb, Gfd. A round of pizza trophies for everyone! SRMX12 (talk) 15:19, August 1, 2017 (UTC)

Sorry 'bout the late reply. But yeah, thanks! About the favicon... yeah, I don't think I can do anything about that. I think it might be something only Referata can change. I had the same problem before the update— sometimes, the H*R logo would show up, but other times it would be the Referata logo. Anyway, thanks again! 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:33, August 8, 2017 (UTC)
