Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

We seem to have a tradition of using the Homestar Runner character 'Trogdor the Burninator' to request tag deletion.

I thought we could use crisper images, so I made my own. >:)

A Trogdor bat signal? – Robert Harvey Feb 7 '12 at 19:02
    
There will have to be a tag 'trogdord" or "burninated" for those that fall to Him – Raystafarian Feb 7 '12 at 19:02
    
@RobertHarvey Yes. – iglvzx Feb 7 '12 at 19:04

Nice! Only devs can completely burninate tags, but the burninator signal will be a nice addition to burnination-request posts. Now that Jeff's leaving, I'm not sure who will be the new trogdor... we'll see! – nhinkle Feb 7 '12 at 19:35

Shouldn't those images be posted as an answer, instead? – Chris Frederick Feb 7 '12 at 21:23

@Chris Why yes, they should... which also lets us up-vote multiple times! That said, I couldn't help thinking of Alex Trebek when I read your comment... – Andrew Barber Feb 7 '12 at 21:28
    
@Chris Fixed it! – iglvzx Feb 7 '12 at 22:25

The above were made using a Trogdor reference from an unknown person on the internet, which has some inaccuracies. I went to the source (Strongbad), and retraced Trogdor. This is the real Trogdor, in color, in higher definition:

So happy! @Jeff I hope you still stick around for some good ol' burninating from time to time. – nhinkle Feb 8 '12 at 2:41

@YiJiang'sProble_ You do not need to change the kerning. If you watch the cartoon, the text is actually spaced like that. :) – iglvzx Mar 17 '12 at 7:46

@iglvzx Oh, okay, but it's just that the... bad kerning... must... resist... argh! *stabs eye with pen* – Yi Jiang Mar 26 '12 at 14:43

@iglvzx's Trogdor is great, sure, but I always imagined trogdor as having a red skin (yes, I have played peasant's quest, but my artistic style is not to be questioned!).

I have also taken on the daunting task of converting our good friend Mr. Troggie into a vector format (SVG), which you can download here: imageDescr

And for those of you who don't have a browser capable of SVG, then here's a PNG render:

Trogdor PNG

Do what you will with this file, and hopefully trogdor can burninate more!

Inkscape? Pfft, I hand craft my SVGs. – bjb568 Jun 7 '14 at 5:48

@bjb568 Honestly I would have, I'm just a terrible artist. Here's the best I could do with about 10 minutes in pixelmator: imgur.com/lBQhmB2, just to give you an idea of how horrible I truly am. – Richard J. Ross III Jun 7 '14 at 6:19
