You probably noticed that the forum was locked for the last few weeks. This was because of several factors, in particular dissatisfaction on the part of the administration over the direction of the forum (the hrwiki.org Admins, not ramrod and StrongRad). We have used this time to retool a few things.

  • The off-topic forums have been archived and locked. For the time being we are going to focus only on Homestar Runner-related subjects. Whether this move is permanent remains to be seen, but it will be for a while at least.
  • ramrod is no longer an admin. He and several other mods and users have moved to a new forum outside of hrwiki.org (here). We wish them—and you, if you decide to join them—all the best.
  • Stu has voluntarily resigned his adminship in order to take a less active role here. He and his backyard are still quite cool.

We're still in a transition phase as we sort all this out. Please continue to bear with us. Thanks one million.

Could this be considered the successor to the Summer of '04? :P

I'm sad to hear that the forum was shut down for so long for what appears to be nonsense. Hopefully people return, but I am unsure how wise it is to close down parts of the forum relating to non-Homestar Runner stuff. Removes a sense of community. One can only hope that with time that will return and a new community will form. :homsar:

Yay, the forum is back! :-D
I hope the off topic section will return after a while. I mean, I love Homestar Runner and all, but it's the off topic that brings life into a forum (only my opinion), especially since there are only so many new toons/sbemails a year to talk about.

You'll have to listen to the people sometime. It's a ghost town now.

I predict that General will eventually become Off-Subject.

We can't say it's a ghost town just yet, since this forum has only be reopened for several hours; give it a few days.

While I'm sure that a good portion of the KB members will make a return to here, most of the members that frequented the Off Subject sections have shown no interest in returning, which is fine. If this place can manage to maintain a regular level of activity while being focused on only Homestar Runner subjects, then the actions over the last few weeks would have been for a good cause.

For now, I'll probably drop my activity levels here to focus on both the other board and on school work.

Ian is probably right, unless the mods, admins, and modmins forbid it. Otherwise that will end up being the primary purpose of the General section I suspect.

No, not at present. We're going to try to keep it on topic for a while.

You might want to link to the new forum, SIBHoDC, for anyone interested in off-topic discussion or for any stragglers. But it's certainly good to be back.

You just did. In case anyone missed it, it's http://www.inversetiger.com/forum/index.php (that's a FellowSite, right? It would be real easy to make it forum.inversetiger.com. You should mention it to him).

It is a Fellowsite, but Inverse is planning on switching its domain sometime in the coming months (at least, I still think that's the plan).

I honestly didn't think i'd ever come back here. I probably wont be very active untill Off Subject is back.


See ya later...I'll still be at SIBAoC probably.

Ben, according to our last talk you said that you would post the link to the new forum. Not in a post, but as an announcement in big red letters on the front of the index page. People might not see your post here, so can you please properly link to the forum?

You're half right.
Code:
[22:05:28] ramrod: I still have another question
[22:05:33] Dot_com: what is it?
[22:05:52] ramrod: will you put up a link to the new forum?
[22:05:58] ramrod: when the time comes?
[22:06:13] Dot_com: yep
[22:06:46] ramrod: ok, at least I got that
Session Close (ramrod): Tue Jul 22 20:34:23 2008

Nobody said anything about big red letters. I think most people who need to know about the other forum already know about it, and those who don't are perfectly capable of finding this thread, since it's at the top of every board. In addition to the link in the post you quoted, there's one in the initial post.

That's right, the forum's back, and so am I. (cue loud boos)
Good thing too. None of my friends like H*R, so I no one cared what I thought about Strong Bad. (Why did I come back?) And I come bearing self-deprecating humour.

This place was my home for four years. Real shame it got destroyed, but I got over it.
(I am mostly posting so you can see the link to Sibhod in my sig)

I wondered what happened to the obligatory forum links on the wiki articles. Sad to hear what went down. I think from now on I'll be more active, if only to post the "OMG HILARIOUS" crap I always posted on the toon threads. Oh well. :cheatgrin:

Ah, the old forum's back.

Man, it was locked for a couple weeks and now it all feels so nostalgic... and kinda old... and boring.

I'ma go back to SIBHoD.

EDIT: Man, I'd forgotten what my av. and sig. looked like. It's kinda weird.

Well, since the forum is (pretty much) taken care of, are you going to bring your focus back to the fanstuff wiki?

Also, I was kind of sad to see this place close down so sudden. Even though I'm not extremely active here. :blush:

Wow, I'm not used to not seeing ramrod's name in red(or was it green?). Is the only reason you demodded him was because he was going to be on another forum, too? I didn't even know we had a competitor! :[

Nah, he was demodded for messing around with the forum settings, changing world filters, flipping the order of the boards around.

The higher-ups didn't like it.

We don't. We had a split. There's going to be a little bit of overlap, sure, but the two boards for the most part focus on completely different kinds of things.

Seriously, this is my home forum but SIBHoDC is cooler and less drama-y.
