Is this the first time they didn't use bitmaps (as in, pixel graphics) to blur? I mean, other than Strong Bad's "O" mouth in myths and legends?

I dunno, they just havent used the blur effect very often.

SHINY BUTTONS.

But now I have to update my automatic main page randomizer.

Post subject: 

Ditto on the SHINY BUTTONS! thing :P They need to put those on the other pages! You know, where you can actually SEE them. :P

I... I thought Strong Bad was naked at first. And, um... tried to use the glasses to see what it looked like. WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY BRAIN D:

Anyway, this is the first main page since, what, 2005, right? Kinda weird that it took so long, but yay!

Hey guys, I'm on my Wii's Internet Channel, and for some reason, when I go to this Main Page, all I see is a darkened main page, and Homestar doesn't have a star on his shirt, and none of the buttons have words on them, and when I scroll over them, nothing happens. Is it my Wii's browser, or something else?

^The exact same thing is happening to me. Yes, I'm using the Wii, too.

This seems to be made in Flash 8 or higher instead of the Flash 5 they usually work with, hence the blur effect and shinier buttons.

Remember that in the video at Georgia Tech, they said that they have both, but mainly work in 5 and export in 8 just because it compresses better, and only work in 8 to do things 5 can't.

Hence why you can't see it in the Internet Channel, which only supports 7 and under.

Eh, toons and emails too me are a little more heavy duty than games and MP's, so I think we'd only need one of them for the baby break to be over.

I'ma agree with buhubs on this one. An email or two is a good ending to the baby break.

Do you think they make you do that on purpose?

Post subject:  New Main Page Design...?

The buttons are shinier and stuff... What if this leads to a new main page design? What if TBC are getting better at flash and as a result, are trying to make everything look 'better'? It's kind of jump-the-shark-ish if that's what they're doing, but if they're just showing off new skills or decided to make a change just 'cuz... I like it! I hope they keep this design. It. Ish. AWESOME.

Um, I've never been to a Wiki until this one nor have I updated one before, but I added the nonworking (on the Wii) main page and a description of what doesn't work under the glitches section in Main Page 24's page before I noticed that you guys were talking about it here. Should I remove it or place it somewhere else since it is only because the Wii doesn't support Flash 8?

The rules said to be bold and add things, so I did. I apologize if I was supposed to discuss this before adding it.

At least, I know it's not just me that had the problem though. I was worried that it was just my Wii or something...

I also thought Strong Bad wasn't wearing...anything at all... It seriously looks like it without the "glasses."

Um, dare I ask HOW exactly did Strong Bad manage to lose his pants? It wasn't something that Strong Sad did...was it?...I almost get the impression that he was, at least, amused by the whole thing.

don't worry, be bold means exactly that. BE BOLD. if you do anything wrong, it'll just be fixed by someone else, and it's pretty hard to do anything wrong on accident. If you're not doing something extreme like rewriting a whole section, just do exactly what you said. be bold.

Also, can this only be linked to from Main Page 23? Besides the new update bubble, I mean.
