[edit] Stuffed animals

First, i want to talk to you about this. In the future, don't leave a note on the page about what you want on the page or you started the page and you need help. The right thing to do is to say that on the talk page. Second, I like the fact that you're contributing to our wiki. Bravo! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:38, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Okay, I got your message. It's fine, but it's a shower for the wiki if we do not say talk posts on the actual page. Thank you, and have a great wiki experience. Oh, and remember, to sign easily, type 4 tildes (~~~~) User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 23:32, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] How a wiki works

Hey, welcome to the HRWiki.

Allow me to ramble a bit on how a wiki works.

When you have an idea for a page, or an edit, or any addition to the wiki, you go ahead and be bold and do it. At that moment, it is no longer yours, it belongs to us all. It's a gift, with which we must decide what to do. Aunt Edna's crappy argyle creche went into the trash, and some of the submissions here do as well. But many are workable.

So how do we decide? We look for consensus. That simply means we try to apply the wiki community's opinion at large to the problem. Sometimes there is established consensus, like with 3 appearances needed for a running gag to merit a page. Sometimes there isn't consensus yet, and we need to discuss. And occasionally consensus has changed, and we discuss a lot.

Don't allow any one user to tell you an idea is bad unless he can cite consensus behind it. And even if they do, and you really think it would fit, go for it. The worst thing that can happen is it gats a-deleted. If you never put it up in the first place, it's the same thing, right?

So read the editing help, read the policies and guidelines, and get a feel for how we do business. We're all gonna help you along the way. I know you want to be a contributor, and frankly most 13-year-olds just want to play and have clubs and that's ok, I guess, but I'm happy you want to actually contribute to the knowledge base. Feel free to ask me at any time if you have a question, and I'm sure I speak for all the sysops and other power-users here with that. We absolutely love helping honestly interested users who want to further the wiki in good faith. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 04:14, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Question mark?

Hey, saw a note here that seemed unanswered. Yes, a separate login is required for this wiki, the fanstuff wiki and the forum. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 13:13, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Show Preview Button

Hi, Homstarstrongbad150. I'm not sure if you already know, but I just want to point out the Show Preview Button. It's just to the right of the Save Page Button when editing. By pressing this, you can see a preview of what the page will look like if you were to save, but not actually saving. By doing a preview, you can find mistakes or correct formatting and not flood Recent Changes and the page's history. Forgetting and having to re-save the page with a minor edit every now and again is normal and ok, but try not to do too many edits to the same page. Remember: I made this message to save you work.

[edit] hey, gotta answer

now, you seem nice enough to answer begginner's question.

how do you load screenshots? if possible, answer me on my talk not on this page.

thanks, Homsarstrongbad150 01:44, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

here's 2 more : how do you stop the site from clocking you out every 2 minutes. is that because i never signed out for 2 weeks once?

and another, how do you make your signature with the color writing and gifs like yours?

again, my talk, not yours, please

Homsarstrongbad150 03:37, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Hey, Strong Bad. I mean, Lionel Ritchie. I mean, Homsarstrongbad150. Screenshots are simple. When you're on the screen you want to shoot, hit your printscreen key, then paste it into a picture editor, crop and modify as needed, and then use the upload (in the left column) to put them on the wiki.
Constantly logged out? Did you check the box that says to keep you logged in?
And as far as sigs, read Help:Signatures#Customization first, that may answer your question. And feel free to reply here, I have set your page to watch. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:13, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

thank you so much for your help. i knew you were nice enough to answer my questions!  :)

Homsarstrongbad150 19:05, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] another question

hey, cornman, or whatever your name is (this guy User:Qermaq) , you said you watched my page, so i posted here. anyway, can you explain the basics of the forum. i joined because of this post.Talk:Strong Bad Email#place ya bets! plus, you can discuss random stuff having to do with H*R, which is cool. but the forum's in a different format, which confuses me.

whenever you have time. no rush

thanks, Homsarstrongbad150 21:06, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I am watching you. 8-[ Cornman, that's no place for a Qermaq warrior! Anyway, yes, the forum is a different realm than the wiki. I don't frequent it, so I don't have a lot to recommend aside from what the forum help itself provides. It is a separate site with a separate login, so it's a totally different animal, kinda like a jackal. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 08:09, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

oh, so you have no idea. oh, well, can you like, find out from someone else for me. i don't have any idea who to ask. what about you? know anyone on the forum?

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 15:30, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

I'd start with the forum FAQ, but if you have specific questions, I'd direct them to moderators there like Tom or It's dot com. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 17:02, 20 September 2008 (UTC)


HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 17:09, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] just needed somewhere to try my sig

Homsarstrongbad150 02:35, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

crap! hold on, why didn't it work....

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:39, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

that means it worked? woohoo!

[edit] fonts?

what are the names of the compy's and lappy's fonts again? i'd heard them before, but i forgot and have no idea where to look.

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 17:41, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

(also posted on Talk-strong bad email)

Look here for all the fonts used on the site. Sewiously. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:24, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Hellooooooooo!

Do you want one? They're very refreshing!
Finally!!! Someone my age who watches Seinfeld! Acam30 11:30, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

that's exactly the same thing i'm thinking. nobody in our generation watches seinfeld. i even have one friend who hates it, and when he told me that, i think, what are you stupid? nobody hates seinfeld. you're probably the only person in america who hates the show with every fiber of their being. for, like 3 weeks we argued/debated about it.

anyway, i also like the muffin tops, and also, i don't remember which this is from, but anytime soseone sneezes, i say "you are sooo good lookin'", and the finale, it was SOOOOO great! i'm not saying anything because that could totally ruin it for you if you haven't seen it. did you see any of those?

i have seen the junior mints, and everyone who watches the show, no matter how little, has seen the soup nazi. i use that jokingly in real life, too. if my friend is having soup at lunch and says something that could potentially be an insult to me, i say, that's it, no soup for you! then i give it right back of course. it is my friend. you ever done anything like that?

whoops, forgot something else. how did you find me? i thought the only user who knew about me is cornman (yes, sorry, i'm calling you that again) [and sam the man, but he was not nice and is no longer on hrwiki, so he doesn't count.] i watch it all the time, unless i'm on H*R or seinfeld is funny, but i like kramer. i actually like him so much, i named my yoshi kramer in TTYD (see my user page) he was so great in seinfeld, i'm surprised michael richards isn't doing something else in acting. like, Julia louis-dreyfus (elaine) is now in her own show on cbs, the new adventures of old christine. i watch that, too, but from what i saw so far, only once has she use something potentially related to seinfeld; giving away a peed-on couch. also, they turned the cusion over.

basically, seinfeld is cool, and damien is stupid!

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 19:14, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

You guys know we have a forum, right? Actually, this type of chatter would be more suited for IRC or a similar venue. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:57, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

i don't care. it's my talk page (sorry if that insults you, but i really don't. my tone is a little bad.)

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 21:59, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Allow me to introduce you to my leetle friend, HRW:TALK. No page on the wiki truly belongs to anyone - they all belong to the project. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:50, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

i just noticed the section title is a reference to the voice.

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 22:56, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Ha! You just noticed?

Yea, I had a science teacher who would always say "That's a shame", and nobody would laugh but me, lol. Acam30 01:38, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] coolest users list

Thanks for making me a cool user! I'm going to put you on my list now! Acam30 02:13, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Ditto for me! You're on my list now! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 15:07, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

i just needed somewhere to put this to remember to use it. i recently (about 2 hours ago) found out how to do the commentaries, so...bye!

[edit] my sig

hey, cornman, i don't like my current sig so much, and i forgot how to change it. then i figured it out and i still don't even know how to do half of this crap. on top of that, i'd like an image, and have no idea how to get a personal image. so, i really don't wanna deal with this crap. can you make me a new sig? make sure it looks kinda halloweeny for the holiday, like with a punkin picture, then one for the rest of the year, involving a medium colored purple. or just explain what the gibberish on help:signatures is supposed to even mean.

look, just help me comprehend help:signatures or make me some sigs i can use for the holidays like a christmas one with that picture of the stick from the 'we're snowed in' main page and a thanksgiving one with the turkey sb as the pic. then just a cool one for any other time.

just help, please!


HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 14:31, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't know who cornman is, but I'm willing to help with your sig if you'd like. OptimisticFool 18:20, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
"Cornman" is his nickname for "Qermaq". Don't ask why, i mean, i didn't. — Defender1031*Talk 21:13, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

thanks, are you making me sigs, or are you explaining the garglemesh? (i'm talking to the couch guy)

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 23:50, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

I can help you with your sig! I can help you with your sig 12 times! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:03, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

by the way, dfender1042 or whoever you are, i called him cornman because i didn't want to misspell his name, and i'm still afraid i will, so, i'm trying to make it stick

and to mikexxx3 or whoever you are, same thing i said to couch genius, are you making me new sigs, or are you explaining help:signatures and what all of that crap means

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:07, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

My name is MichaelXX2, and don't forget it. And no, there was a time where I thought Help:Signatures was garglemesh too. I mean the actual doing. I you give me a description of the sig you want, and I'll help you. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:10, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

well, michaelXX2, for the halloween one, i want a pumpkin picture next to it on the left(and right, if possible), and the name to be in black on Homsar, strong, orange, bad black, 150 orange, black if 2nd punkin fits. it should be like this if it all fits:

[pic] [homsar(in black)] [strong(in orange)] [Bad150(in black)] [pic]

now, for a thanksgiving style, light brown and orange text divided the same way and a picture of strongbad dressed as 'some stupid turkey' on the left(and only left). once again, this is the way:

[pic] [Homsar(in brown)] [strong(in orange)] [bad150(in brown)]

then, for a christmas/decemberween one, i want a picture of the stick from main page 16 when he/it has all the decorations on it/him. then for colors, red, dark green, and yellow sound christmas-ey? this one will be tricky the way i want it. again, like so:

[pic] [H(red)] [o(green)] [m(yellow)] [s(r)] [a(g)] [r(y)] [s(r)] [t(g)] [r(y)] [o(r)] [n(g)] [g(y)] [b(r)] [a(g)] [d(y)] [1(r)] [5(g)] [0(y)]

and for the rest of the year, maybe a pic of homsar(left) and strong bad(right), a medium shade purple, a lime color green and a blue like in your sig. for the last time, format:

[pic] [Homsar(in green)] [strong(in purple)] [bad150(in blue)] [pic]

also, i'll keep the format for each in a word document on my computer once we do them all, so don't let me forget!!


HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:04, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

crap. i forgot talk and contributions. just have it linked in the words. Homsar go to my page, strong go to talk, and bad150 to contributions for every one.

thanks again,

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:06, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Hmmm, give me some time. And I can only make a Thanksgiving and Christmas sig when it is Thanksgiving or Christmas. Your sig will be ready in under an hour. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:13, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

are you making it now? and the halloween one, right?

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:15, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it's almost done. But what picture do you have in mind? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:25, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

for what, the pumpkin? hold on, i'll load one if it's not on the carve-nival page. i'm looking for one of the game pumpkins that i like

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:32, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

What about the pumpkin below? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:43, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
How about this one?

Well, it's done. What do you think? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:51, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Talk page format

It's really preferred that you indent when replying to a message. This can be done by leading your comment with one or more colons, like so:

One colon indents once
Two colons indent twice

And so on. Also, it would also be nice if you would sign on the same line as the rest of what you're typing, rather than ending with your sig on a separate line as though you're signing a letter. Trust me, I'm not the only one who would appreciate it if you'd make these minor adjustments. OptimisticFool 03:41, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Remember, your talk page contributions are for the good of all the wiki. If they are not, they should not be put on the wiki, but elsewhere. If following the thread of conversation will not help the wiki, the conversation is misplaced. And as a general note, having the decent respect to remember our names is a basic social skill. I trust you see the value in learning it. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:48, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

sorry, couch guy, but i really don't care for the indenting, but i'll try to sign on the same line from now on

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:46, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry you do not care for indenting. It is our convention here. I don't think I am overstepping bounds by asking you to comply for the reward of being taken seriously as a positive contributor. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:51, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
And honestly, how can you forget so quickly? After typing the words "i'll try to sign on the same line from now on" you failed to sign on the same line. It's easy; I promise. OptimisticFool 03:53, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
sorry, it's become a habit and i didn't double chack after signing HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:55, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
(is this better?)
Much better. How about your sig? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:56, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
This is even better. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:57, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
That is soooo nice.. it is truly so much more readable this way! =] OptimisticFool 04:03, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
The sig or the format? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 04:04, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
The format. That's what this topic is about. The sig topic is above. OptimisticFool 04:06, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
not for long. soon it will be below.HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 04:09, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] my sig (newer)

(as the headline suggests, newer sig stuff goes here rather than the format tab.)

i like the new sig, i just don't like that picture. i have the one i want on my computer, but it's a bitmap image, or .bmp, which is not accepted by the site. any way to convert that any of you know of? HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 04:09, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

and another thing, strong's not linked to my talk page. or is that because we're on the talk page? HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 04:12, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
oops, sorry! HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 04:13, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
That's correct. Linking to a page while on the same page just makes the words bold. --DorianGray 04:14, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
There is an easy way to convert that image. Right-Click on the image and hit "properties." Then...
Crap, that might not be so easy...
Just put it on Mediafire and I'll convert it. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 04:15, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
no, i'll understand how to do it if you tell me how (unless there's like 10 steps and you think it would take too long to type). in which case, where is/what is mediafire and do i need an account? HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 04:18, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
crap! i did it again! see, couchfool, i don't do it on purpose. HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 04:19, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Mediafire is free and safe, so don't worry. It takes only a few minutes to make an account. And yes, there are 15 confusing steps, and it would be best for me to do them. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 04:20, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
There are only three steps. Get a decent graphics program, open the file you've got, save as a PNG. OptimisticFool 04:22, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
any way to shorten them? i don't want to have an account to a page i'll never use again. HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 04:24, 13 October 2008 (UTC) (ha! i remembered that time)
I prefer imageshack. No account necessary. OptimisticFool 04:27, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Maybe you can just use this image over there or tell me where you got this image. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 04:26, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
This one?
Well, I'm going to bed. It's 11:30 where I live. Homsarstrongbad, do you have anything else you want before I go? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 04:31, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
yes. me, the couch optimistfool whoever and i will figure out the picture thing, i'll upload it, and you can change it tommorrow, ok? thanks again!
and to optimistfool, what falls under "decent picture viewer?" ulead? windows picture and fax viewer? paint? HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 04:36, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
on my last post, i counted me twice. see how much more i should doublecheck? but when 3-5 people are editing a talk page, it's hard to get your post in. on top of that, i probably got, like 30 emails from the admin from those changes.
oops, forgot to sign HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 04:41, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
I currently use Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 and love it. But it costs money. If you want free, I'm afraid I don't have much in the way of suggestions. Some like GIMP and while I'm not one of those some people, maybe you will be. It should at least work to let you simply open your BMP and save it as a PNG, I should think. OptimisticFool 04:45, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Or maybe you'd like to use this image ( sbpunkinrk8.png ) and save the effort. It's probably not the one you had in mind, but it's pretty cool nonetheless. OptimisticFool 05:27, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Mspaint can convert to png. — Defender1031*Talk 12:07, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

really? how? HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 12:10, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Open the file, save as, select "png" from the file type options, boom, you're done. — Defender1031*Talk 12:15, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
that's so easy. i can't believe i never figured that out HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 12:17, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
and you know what? optimistfool had a great image above, so i actually like that better than the one i made on the game in carve-nival HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 12:20, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
No biggie. — Defender1031*Talk 12:22, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
does that mean your changing it for me? HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 12:39, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
nope, just commenting that it's not a big deal that you never realized how. — Defender1031*Talk 12:41, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
oh, ok. it just read like you were gonna HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 12:42, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm baaaack! I can change it! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 14:45, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
good. you see the one i want? it's on a previous post
this one
Done and done. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 14:59, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
thanks! HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 15:01, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Whew... That sure was a lot of work. Making that sig. I had fun, and I hope you like it. Just tell me when you want the sig changed for Thanksgiving.

Post your request here. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 15:04, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] you forgot something in my sig

hey! michaelx2/homestar vs yoshi, you forgot to make one picture on the left and one on the right. can you copy the same picture as on the left to the right?

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 19:35, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Sure thing. And I don't think I'll ever be Homestar VS. Yoshi... SNIIIFF... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:14, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] homestar vs yoshi

really? is it because of the length of it or what? if so, you can just think of a clever combination like Homestoshi or homeyoshi, or have it the opposite name in front. you could be Yoshistar! now that is clever and it sounds cool. Yoshistar. use it if you want. you're making me cool sigs, so you can take the name i thought of.
HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:21, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

by the way, the new sig looks great. thanks HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:22, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Its not that, the length is fine. But someone *cough*Dot Com*cough*won't change it for me. I can't change it, and it's up to him and other name-changers. WAAAAHAHAAA... I WANNA BE HOMESTAR VS. YOSHIHIHIII... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:24, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

then create a new account and name it homestar vs yoshi. then leave links on michaelxx2's pages and say "see homestar vs yoshi to talk to me" or something like that. go around the corperate opressors! only you can prevent scouting! BOY DO WE NEED FOREST FIRES!!!!!

(tee hee)

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:30, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Um, no. If I set up an account by the name of Homestar VS. Yoshi, that page will be considered what we call a sockpuppet, and it will be blocked forever. Making changing my name to that impossible. You have to know these things. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:33, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

really? you can't go around them? oh, well it was an idea. how would they even have known it was you without reading this talk post? through your IP? if so, maybe it's not such a good idea. i would hate for you to be gone. outside you, i really haven't talked to other users. maybe except for cornman. and that bleeding couch guy, optimist fool i think it was. i can't tell that font was kinda hard to read.

so basically, that wouldn't work. oh, well, try asking someone with higher authority like user:Joeyday or something. will that work?

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:43, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

thought i should move it. this really has nothing to do with my sig

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:45, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

And, no. Tried it, it's considered spam. I'm screwed. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:47, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

so, let's review. can't get dot com to change it. can't make a new account. you've even asked joeyday and he won't help?

i think you're right. you're screwed. sorry. talk to User:sam the man. he might know what to do for you. i think he's more experienced than cornman.

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:52, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

XD I can't get over how funny that is... HAHAAAA... You mean Qermaq! HAHAHAAA! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:55, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

neither could i for like a week, but now i think it's been 3 weeks, and it's only moderately funny.

anyway, if that doesn't work, you could ASK cornman.

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:58, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

i just hope it doesn't bother him. remember what optomitrist fool said. you're supposed to say their names right, unless it's an accident. i'm calling him that because he's got a tricky name to spell. don't even get me started on saying it. you think that's a grood reason to call him cornman. i called him that in the beginning, and i liked it, so on top of that, i'm seeing if the name will stick.

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:03, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:03, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

i don't remember signing twice. i kinda like it. i'll keep it there, but i don't think i'll be allowed to sign twice on any other page. above, there was something cornman said that made me say: i don't care it's MY talk page. does the same go here? double signing? we should discuss this with cornman, acam30 and optimistfool and see how many think it should be allowed, and who doesn't. i'll send them all messages at 3:00 tomorrow, make a new double signing page, and schedule a time for a huge debate with any user who acam, me, you, cornman, sam, and optimistfool van get to join. i'll make it happen...october 18th, saturday, from 11 am to whenever we conclude. email me on friday to remind me. bu saturday, we'll have 100 people voting (hopefully)

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:14, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:14, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

{written in reply to comment one before this one due to ec} Well, I don't see that "Qermaq" is really that hard to spell. It's just six letters and all. True, no U's after the Q's, making it a bit unusual, but surely you can remember that. If not, hey, I just wrote it on your talk page, so you can just look back here. As for "cornman", well, I wouldn't really think it'd be good to call someone by a name like that unless you know they like it. I know I wouldn't be too thrilled if anyone called me "hominyman", for example. So I'd advise using his real username. Heimstern Läufer 03:16, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

what if he doesn't like it per se', but it doesn't bother him? then can i still call him cornman? or is that up to him

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:22, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:22, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

One. One signature is allowed. It's to keep talk pages organized and non-sloppy. One is all that's allowed. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:20, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

is it written anywhere? if not, let's still have the debate

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:22, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't think it's written anywhere, but it's common sense. One sign per edit. And for God's sake, put the signature on the same line you typed! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:25, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
Guys, the purpose of a talk page is communication about this wiki. The purpose of a signature is to say who said what, now. One signature will do that fine; two just clutters up the page. So does not putting your sig on the same line. Also, please, please indent, Homsarstrongbad150. It also makes conversations readable. This conversation is exceedingly hard to read because of the lack of indentation. By the way, this conversation is really degenerating into being completely unhelpful. Homsarstrongbad, could you please read HRWiki:Talk page etiquette and take it to heart? Otherwise, I really think this conversation needs to come to an end about now. It's just flooding the recent changes. Heimstern Läufer 03:32, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

oops, sorry. i keep forgetting. you could at least say it nicely. HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:27, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

after a while it does seem less cool and more stupid to sign twice. HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:30, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, it gets pretty annoying after a while. Just imagine if every page had two signatures and didn't follow indention rules. Creepy. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:32, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

ok, but can we skip the indenting? i really don't like it too much and after like 6 replies, the text gets about a word a line, so i just think that's stupid.

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:32, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

No, it doesn't. I'll show you.
I can fit several words on this line with lots of room to spare, see?
There. That's indented seven places, as far a sixth reply. Note also that if it's not your own talk page, people will indent your comments for you, so it's going to get indented one way or another. Might as well do it yourself so you don't irritate others. Heimstern Läufer 03:36, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

on the contrary, i think it's irritating to indent. and look above where i did indent. but i actually think it was 15 replies, not 6 HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:40, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Yes, once the indentations have kinda' gone a little too far, you can always "kill the colons". You don't have to indent for EVERY response, but until the replies really start going only a few words before jumping to a new line, please remember to put a new set of colons under another reply or post. Like so:

Hello there, Homsarstrongbad150.~~~~

Why, hello to you too, Devon. ~~~~

DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 04:01, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Homsarstrongbad150, you may continue to think indentation is annoying all you want, but it's still going to be standard here at the wiki, so expect that your posts will be indented for you if you don't.
One more thing: You really need to stop calling Qermaq "cornman". It's just not respectful to call people by names other than their real usernames unless you've been told it's OK or you know they regularly go by it (example, people regularly call me "Heimstern", "Heimi" or "Heim" rather than my full username, and it's fine). Thanks. Heimstern Läufer 11:52, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] bday

i just noticed your post above. that was nice for meeting you yesterday/today, depending on the timezones. this is very confusing HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:26, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Same line. Sign on the same line. Not to be mean, but please remember. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:29, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] formatting

Same, freakin', line. And after a few indention's, you start over. That's how it's done. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:34, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

i thought i should move this down, but now i had a response and i forgot it. HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:37, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

i remembered.

i think you mean indentations. i think that way is the correct one. HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:42, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm gone for the night. It's a school night, and it's 10:42 here in Louisiana. I'll be back much later after ischool. (Pronounced Ih-school) XD MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:44, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

in my time zone, it's 11:42. i'm more of a wiki addict then you are. ha ha! wait, is it 11:42, really? oh, crap. i'm never going to be able to make it to school on time.

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:47, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Your signature

Hey there, your signature is too long. It needs to fit in this box: Please fix it. Thanks! Loafing 07:48, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Who am I?

Jason, I noticed that your "who am i" section of your page was severely screwed up. I went ahead and fixed that so it matches the Wiki's syntax. Just a heads up. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 11:00, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

oh, ok. i saw that my page was edited by someone other than me, and thought it was a vandal. that's a relief. and why'd you use my real name? just 'cause it's shorter or what? and that also means you've seen my whole page or just the top. HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 18:54, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
by the way, did you see loafing's above post. get rid of the right picture, please. HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 18:58, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] format (again)

Please, man. We've asked you around 20 times to indent and start putting your sig on the same line as the you wrote. Please just listen and try to start. I really don't wan't to come off as rude, but it's getting really annoying. Oh, and as a side note, please shorten your sig up a bit. Read the section above this for more info. Thanks, DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 19:20, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
Homsarstrongbad150: Have a look at the difference between this old version and this better version of this thread. Notice the formatting (indenting and placement of signatures) that DevonM was talking about. Thanks. — It's dot com 21:01, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

no, i wouldn't do that. just ask cornman. anyway, it's just because of all the hate comments all because of a stupid colon! and it's dot com changed my sig like 2 minutes ago. and on top of that, how do you even know about me? recent changes? anyway, devon, i thought you were only on the fanstuff wiki, not the knoweledge base. i saw some of your fanstuff before the remodel. "it is not a rip-off". that's you right? anyway, you people have given me a day to change what i've done for a year. NOT FAIR. i'll get used to it in a little while, but for now, leave me alone about it. if i.m still not indenting and leaving my sig a line down, then scream away, but for now, give me time to adjust to it. HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 21:10, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Jason, I'd watch my attitude. I learned the hard way, but that doesn't mean you have to also about indenting. I would be devistated if you were blocked by Dot Com or something because that's the way he is. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:19, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
Listen, we're not here to yell at you (Yelling at us doesn't help). Before now, we let it slide because you weren't such an active user. We just wan't the standards to be enforced. We've given you time to adjust to it (a few days), and it doesn't seem like you've tried a bit to do what we've asked. All we're asking is that when you do make a post or reply, just try to remember what we've said. We don't expect it to stick right away, but after a few days (and apparently you remembered in the sentence before this last post you made...which by the way was not an appropriate way to respond), we hope it'll become common knowledge. Thanks, DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 21:23, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

yeah, i know. i said in reality i wouldn't respond that way. and if you don't believe me, ask cornman, or any other user on my cool users list. i was doing that because i was tired of the comments. like, 6 people left remarks a couple different times each. i just forget when i'm posting. and the sig will be easier for me to change. the indenting will be harder. just before i typed that last sentance, i didn't remember. i'll do it now.....there. so, please understand. by the way, i'm still barely active outside this page. this page got BIG like 4 days ago. oh, by the way, again mike, why the real name? Homsarstrongbad150 too long for you? me, too. but i like the name, so i'm not changing it. and another unanswered question, any idea when fanstuff is coming back. HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 22:24, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
Same line. Get that in your head. SAME LINE. Put the 4 things (~~~~) Just a space after the line you typed. Easy. Space. One, two, three, four... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 00:07, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
