Question:

Why can't I use the BBS as a chatroom? Isn't that what it's for, to chat?

Answer

No, the BBS is not a chatroom. The BBS is a discussion board where topics have some sort of conversation going on. Threads like "I want to talk to User2343" are lame, and annoy the users. Keep it off the board, that is what our chatroom is for, and why we enabled the Private Message (PM) system on it.

Question:

August 28, 2003 - Why was Chris (Satan's EX) sent to Hell?

Why was Chris (Satan's EX) sent to Hell?

Answer

We have no idea, they never talked about that in the episode. Many things that aren't explained in the show are usually left unexplained. Matt and Trey's goal usually is to toally confuse it's audience.

Question:

August 28, 2003 - Why do I have to download the top ten FAQs? What i

Why do I have to download the top ten FAQs? What if I don't have Adobe PDF?

Answer

We decided to make the top ten FAQs downloadable because many people wrote in asking why I haven't changed the FAQs in forever, turns out they were just reading the top ten and not looking further down. Removing them from the header and making them downloadable cleaned up the FAQ board. If you don't have Adobe PDF just click the link at the top of this page and get it. The program is free, and many people use PDFs.

Question:

I think your show is funny, but how did you attract such a stupid audience?

Answer

Many people think that South Park is just funny because the boys curse, and say naughty things. They don't understand it's more than just curse words. South Park is both crude and insightful, unfortunatly when they're 13 and stoned most of the time, they just don't get it.

Question:

August 25, 2003 - When will the "Bart of War" be replayed? I cannot

When will the "Bart of War" be replayed? I cannot find that epsiode listed or available for download anywhere.

Answer

Perhaps it's because you're searching for a Simpsons Site, this is a South Park site, and "The Bart of War" is an episode of the Simpsons. :)

Question:

August 25, 2003 - Do yo buy or accept story ideas?

Do yo buy or accept story ideas?

Answer

No, Matt and Trey used to read them but so many people sent in such huge numbers it got too hard to read them all. Then there are the legal issues of accepting outside material. Since the very beginning Matt and Trey have written their own episodes without fan interaction.

Question:

August 25, 2003 - Have you thought about a second movie of South Par

Have you thought about a second movie of South Park?

Answer

Trey and Matt have thought of making another South Park movie once before. All they had to do was remember how much of a pain in the ass the last one was to make and they stop thinking about it! They hope to make another one some day, but so far there are no plans to do so.

Question:

Is there any place to get Beers jerseys or those cool beer mug helmets in BASEketball?

Answer

Many items from the movie BASEketball are being sold on ebay.com auctions as I type.

Question:

August 25, 2003 - Why does your banner say "All New Episodes Coming

Why does your banner say "All New Episodes Coming in October?" Dude, they're not that new anymore they just havn't been on tv yet...I downloaded them all in like...May.

Answer

WOW! You must have downloaded them from the magical psychic server because the episodes airing in October haven't even been scripted yet... can I have the URL?

Question:

August 22, 2003 - Why isn't there any video downloads for "chickenpo

Why isn't there any video downloads for "chickenpox?" That's the best episode!

Answer

When Southparkstudios.com first launched, we had taken various files for South Park from many sites, mainly Comedycentral.com and beef-cake.com (beef-cake.com was the largest fan ran South Park site on the net at the time, when SPS.com launched the owner of beef-cake and Matt Stone decided to take it down). Over the years I've been trying to get those downloads updated to at least five per episode, but it's been difficult due to program changes, and production.

August 21, 2003 - Since Matt & Trey thinks it's cool with people bei

Since Matt & Trey thinks it's cool with people being able to download episodes through the internet, does that make it legal to put them up on my own server?

Answer

No, putting up episodes on your server is not legal, unless of course you have the express written consent of Comedy Central.

Question:

August 21, 2003 - Why do you perpetuate false truths such as this?

Why do you perpetuate false truths such as this? Q: Was that really George Clooney in the Big Gay Al episode? How did you get him to do the show when still pretty new? A: Actually, Matt and Trey kind of owe the success of South Park to George. When their first short movie "The Spirit of Christmas: Jesus Vs. Frosty" was being passed around the Internet, George had gotten a copy of it, called them up, and paid them to make a new one. "The Spirit of Christmas: Jesus Vs. Santa" was born.

Answer

This is a true story. It is not a so called "false truth." Oh, and by the way... how can something be a false truth anyhow? Can we say oxymoron? I think this person has his/her panties in a bunch. God, I love it when people waste their energy on hating me ((evil grin #432))!

Question:

August 20, 2003 - Are Matt and Trey going to make fun of the up and

Are Matt and Trey going to make fun of the up and coming election with AHHHHHHNOLD? Those of you who don't vote for him... big mistake!

Have you ever "got it on" with Matt or Trey?

Someone offered me a South Park DVD today called South Park Winterland. I was told it is a new south park film. Were they just trying to con me or is there really a new film out that I don't know about?

Does Trey or Matt ever look at the BBS and read what their crazy fans are saying about them?

Answer

I know for sure that Matt reads the BBS a lot. I'm almost positive that Trey has too. One of the biggest users from the office (besides me) is Eric Stough, Director of Animation. He always checks the BBS after premiers!

Question:

August 11, 2003 - Some of the fire effects are really realistic, how

Some of the fire effects are really realistic, how do you do that in a cartoon like South Park?

Answer

South Park is made in a really awesome program called MAYA. It is created by a company named Alias/Wavefront. The program is responsible for movies like Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, and most Final Fantasy movie clips from the SquareSoft video game series. It's capable of doing super cool things, and obviously, pretty crappy things. When things like fire and portholes to hell need to be created and look cool, it's really easy for it to be made in MAYA.

Question:

August 05, 2003 - Hello, I am one of the Canadian's that you were ma

Hello, I am one of the Canadian's that you were making fun of for getting so angry at your comments. I just wanted to say that the last comment you made to me made me laugh so hard, that I realized that all you're doing is messing with people in good humor. I apologize if I seemed out of order, I hadn't had my snack time. :) Thanks again!

Answer

No problem, it's good to know that you Canadians have a sense of humor after all. :)

Question:

There is still no news about the dates of Team America. We'll keep you posted.

Question:

August 05, 2003 - I would like to know why Cartmans voice is differe

I would like to know why Cartmans voice is different from the first couple of seasons? Was it changed on purpose?

Answer

Cartman's voice has changed not on purpose, but just because the show has evolved. If you pay attention, all the boys' voices have changed (except perhaps, Kenny's). Things like this happen all the time with cartoon show like this. For example, Hank Hill's voice from "King of the Hill" has changed over the years from a sort of low grumble, to something more understandable.

Question:

UR stupid! seeling south park iz da lamest think eva!!!! UR running it! F*CK U!!

Answer

... I'm sure I can just leave this one as is, what a douche!

Question:

August 01, 2003 - At the end of "Here Comes the Neighborhood", they

At the end of "Here Comes the Neighborhood", they pull Kenny's dead body on a sled. Is it supposed to be an unexplained death, or did something actually happen?

Answer

That is an unexplained death. When Matt and Trey were making that episode they didn't want to deal with coming up with a Kenny death, so they just threw him on a sled, dead. I was told that the scene was one of the last scenes made because Trey was avoiding it so much. When it came time to do the scene, all Trey said was "Just put a dead Kenny on the sled that the kids are carrying, and lets not say why!"
