(don't know if this is the right board to post this, as it's the entire site and not just one toon... if it's not, go ahead and move it)

Looks like this year's April Fools joke is already up... just go to any page on the site, you'll see what I mean. :D It's quite trippy. Does make watching anything on the site pretty hard without givng yourself a headache, though...

Haha, yeah. I was talking about this in the glitch thread. It's pretty wacked out.

EDIT: Oh wow, they must have just done that! That's awesome.

Cool, cool. Nice use of theyCallHimFlipper.swf.

And a lot of the pages don't work. Like the Strong Bad Email menu, for example. It's still funny to watch the toons upside down, though.

Go to the museum, and just try not to imagine all the files just falling out of the cabinet.

The MediaWiki software was getting too complicated and difficult to maintain, so we have reverted to using WikkiTikkiTavi.

Heh, Main Page 8 and Homsar's character video are great. Everything's NORMAL!! :P Well, at least as "normal" as Homsar can get...

Try clearing your Cache. And some pages might not be fully flipped yet.

Author:  Ninti [ Sat Apr 01, 2006 5:32 am ]
Post subject: 

Yeah, I have it now.

We must mirror all of this.

Post subject: 

Hahaha... it looks like they're still working out some kinks... for example, look at Homsar's main page. He does nothing except for a really pathetic looking spew of bubbles for Toons.

They seem to be going through it as of currently, a few things are flipped but a lot of stuff isn't (just click rando once or twice).

The flipped Homestar doesn't seem to be working for me. The front "come on in" page is flipped, but that's it. And yes, I cleared my cache. I about hyperventilated when I saw the wiki though. How long are you guys going to keep it like that?

Yes, you must!! Hurry!

Anyway, a site flip, eh? Pretty disappointing considering I've waited all year for this. Oh well. I guess they gotta work hard for a 150th email.

It's okay, though. Strong Bad runs offscreen in "virus".

The only thing that's new is http://www.homestarrunner.com/theyCallHimFlipper.swf - everything is run through that before being displayed. (I have it saved in case they deletes it tomorrow)

Wagh! More switching!

EDIT: Hmmm.... Me and Dormar have the same brains, obviously.

It's still a little buggy, but pretty cool.

I must do that as well. Also, try Peasants Quest if you get a chance.

well stinkoman is still upright

Post subject: 

Because, and again, I quote the wiki on this one-


The following pages / sites are exempt from the flipping because they are hosted separately from the main H*R content or are not Flash files:

* Strong Bad's Website
* Store
* Legal
* Strong Sad's Lament
* Stinkoman 20X6 and other games that appear in pop-up browser windows
