Can I get the original version of this picture from the opening sequence?
I REALLY want it!!!!
I recently bumped in this article which talks about Ted & Marshall's coliving bond. I don't know about you guys, But Marshall is my FAVOURITE sitcom roommate. What do you guys think? https://roomiapp.com/blog/us/ted-and-marshall-impart-living-advice/
In one episode (can't remember which one) he suggests that he and Robin should have threesomes with other people and I quote: "But just girls, not dudes, except maybe one time just to see what that's like..."
On this episode, at 18minutes and 54 seconds, when Robin and Barney are walking away, there's some pictures from different places in the world. Is that a sign for what Robin and Barney would come to live?
Hey all! As you probably know, June is Pride Month, a month where we try to highlight the core message of love is love!
While that should be not something to raise your head over, it sadly isn't as normal yet as it should be, but steps are taken to improve and create a safe place for everyone.
So as the Wiki Representative assigned to this community, I want to highlight the LGBTQ+ resources that Fandom shared with its communities and the guidelines for the platform. You can read the entire post here with links to many helpful resources should your ever find yourself in need of them.
The core message that Fandom is sending is to ask for continued kindness and compassion, that people participating on our platform all follow the following simple "rules" to make Fandom a safe space for everyone (though these rules really transcend "online life" and are just good notes to live by in general if you were to ask me):
Be inclusive and open to others.
Don't use slurs or homophobic, transphobic (including exorsexism), aphobic or biphobic language, even if it's not directed at anyone in particular.
Treat people as individuals; don’t expect a single person or their experiences to represent an entire community.
Respect a person’s identity and use the terms that someone uses for themselves by mirroring their language.
In articles, use the pronouns and gender identity that the character uses for themselves. If the character says "I am a woman", use that in the article - even if another character calls her a man.
Don't use the word "gay" as an insult.
Use the correct pronouns when you know them. And if you don't know, ask! To avoid misgendering someone, use they/them/theirs pronouns until you have the opportunity to ask them.
Don’t assume people’s pronouns. Even if you are correct, this can send a harmful message that you have to look or act a specific way to be seen as a certain gender.
Don't use deadnames, both for other users and the people/characters you write about. For articles, you can make a redirect page for the deadname. That will ensure that people looking for the character can easily find them under either name.
Speak up- if you see something offensive, report it to admins or Special:Contact
Speak to the person before advocating for them. Never out someone’s orientation or gender identity.
If you have any questions about any of this or just want to talk about it, please do feel empowered to reach out to a fellow community member or me personally--here in the comments, on my message wall, or even on Discord (Lostris#4280) if you'd prefer a more private venue--cause I believe it is important that people can get their voice heard, especially when you see something happening that makes you and/or others feel unsafe.
I have been a part of this platform in various community roles for 10 years now if I count it all up, and it truly has been such a welcoming, open, and fun experience for me. So let's continue to be inclusive to everyone and spread the message that love is love!

So hey there!!! I am new to this show and I have recently started watching it and I haven't finished it but I fear no spoilers...since this wiki is pretty quiet...anyways...it feels nice to be a part of this fandom...so I have joint it anyway!!!
We are a team of personality scientists and How I Met Your Mother fans from the universities of Cambridge (UK) and Mannheim (Germany). We grew up with Ted, Robin, Lily, Marshall, and Barney and loved the show! Now we want to run the first scientific study ever to investigate the personalities of the How I Met Your Mother characters. To do that, we rely on the expertise of other How I Met Your Mother fans – such as you here at the How I Met Your Mother fandom page! Concretely, we would really appreciate it if we could get as many diehard fans as possible to complete our brief, anonymous, gamified online survey (duration: 5-8 minutes), in which you rate the typical behaviors of your favorite How I Met Your Mother characters.
Many thanks and best wishes,
Michael Ohlinger, Friedrich Götz, & Tobias Ebert
Since we are coming up on the time in which "The Mother" dies, thinking this is the time (if there was one) to have a reunion special. Starting from the wake of Tracy's funeral there should be a show that recaps the series from each of the points of view of the characters besides Ted. We all loved the episode "How Your Mother Met Me" for its turn of the series that showed all the near misses Ted and Tracy had over the years. It should be a 3 part series (which could be added to CBS Streaming). Episode 1 would be through Barney's perspective filled with all the catch phrases, hook ups, and zoning outs. Episode 2 would be from Lily and Marshall. Episode 3 would be from the eyes of Robin leading up to Ted coming back with the Blue French Horn in 2030.
Ok so, here is my theory:
In the episode of "Aldrin Justice" Barney tried to help Marshall get a good grade by have intercourse with the 'cougar', where he ends up being a B+, even though he wanted to get an A, before Marshall stops him by saying he should be proud to be a B+. Later in the series (episode where Robin and Lily are trying to figure out what alcohol is best for Barney and Ted to be friends again) there is a short scene during New Years eve at Mclarens pub, where Barney is sat on the booth with Robin saying that he always thought he was an A but he always has been a B+. I think this is a secret reference within the series, but what do yous think?
