Hey Michael. I was just looking at the Recent Changes page, and noticed that you made a rather rude remark regarding (havin' fun with alliteration) an IP's edits to [[The Exact Same]]: "It's not a toon, so leave it alone and just set up an account already". I just want to say that although we usually encourage IPs who edit a lot to join the wiki as a user, its not disallowed for an IP to make very small to very large edits. Plus, if he saw your comment, that probably wouldn't make him feel very welcome here on the wiki. Please don't make comments like these in the future. Thanks, {{User:DevonM/sig}} 07:31, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
 

Revision as of 07:38, 7 December 2008

My talk archive. Don't mess with it.

Contents

sig length

Your sig is too long again. — Defender1031*Talk 02:54, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
In addition, there's no reason to have a separate subpage for your halloween sig. please save its data and mark it for deletion. — Defender1031*Talk 02:58, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Sorry. I'm really going all over the place and I need to finish the sig... I'll put the {tbd} template on stat! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif
I hope you realize that your pending username change (assuming it gets approved) will really limit you on what you can add to your sig next to your name. Just the name itself
Homestar VS. Yoshi
fits okay, but your "Talk to me" ain't gonna fit .. especially with your image, if you decide to keep it. Something to keep in mind. OptimisticFool 06:08, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Like DeFender1031, I just plan to have it like this:

Aww-wiiiight! Homestar VS. YoshiTalk

It goes out a bit, but do you think it'll work?

I don't think I'm going to be Homestar VS. Yoshi any time soon :.(..

Going back to an old version of a page

Easier than undoing all the way back, just hit History, select the version you want to go back to, and then Edit-save that version. Less impact on Recent Changes and easier for you. Just a little tip. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:44, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I tried, but it just said that it couldn't, because of conflicting intermediate edits or something... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif
That's where you have to note the intermediate conflicts and resolve them. Routine. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:42, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Oh. Thanks! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif

Take It Easy

Take it easy, guy. No one is abursing you, there are just some things that aren't done. We're just trying to keep the wiki clean by having appropriate subpages and sig lengths. I really do hope there are no hard feelings.. OptimisticFool 03:45, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks... I was just felling a little depressed last night. Like I did a few months ago with this. But I'm over it, i just really wish I knew a place where I could get the codes for colors, like #000000 or something. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif
Try this - or search for hex color. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:45, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Bless all you people. Thank you! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif

Talk page edit

Hey there, MichaelXX2. I noticed you recently left a message on User talk:98.227.0.180 that was rather inappropriate. Articles that are up for deletion will be dealt with on a per-article basis, and problems with MediaWiki syntax can be directed to Help:Content. Also, while creating an account gives users an identity, it is by no means required or necessary. Do consider these points in the future. — Lapper (talk) 17:16, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Requesting Name changes

Hi MichaelXX2,

Please understand that HRWiki:Changing username was created as a courtesy by the admins for us wiki users. They are under no obligation to fulfill our requests under any time frame, if at all. Bothering the administrators with constant messages will not speed up the process and will only serve to disrupt the wiki. You should keep this in mind whenever making edits. Whenever your request is looked at, you will get a response. --Stux 20:07, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

In addition, my suggestion to bug more people was sarcastic, and i apologize if you misunderstood and thought that it was the correct way to go about it. — Defender1031*Talk 20:23, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Oho, no prob, man. I just really want my user name to be Homestar VS. Yoshi, and no one that can change a user name has been in the page for months... Should I just make new account? No, I can't. It's too close to someone's other username blee blah bloo blick bleck... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 20:26, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
No, creating a new account would be creating what we call a sockpuppet. It's not allowed on this wiki. Also, I believe that it's unlikely that your username will actually be changed, as you are a prolific editor and you are relatively well known as MichaelXX2. Changing your name would probably confuse other editors. But it's not my decision to make, it's just a heads-up. Loafing 21:03, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
The first thing you should do is learn how to be patient. As was previously stated, pestering other users is unlikely to help your case. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 21:25, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Haiku Central

Hey there, MichaelXX2, your page User:MichaelXX2/The Haiku Central does not meet the user space guidelines. Please have a look at the guidelines what is OK and what is not. And please add the {{delete}} template to the page so a sysop can delete it. Thanks, Loafing 22:53, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

MP3s

MichaelXX2, please stop advertising making mp3s from homestarrunner toons. This does not sound like fair use and is probably not legal. You are also spamming talk pages advertising your services, which is not cool. Post like this one are also not OK. Thanks for understanding. Loafing 17:26, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry. I won't advertise any more, but I will continue my service if I'm asked for an mp3. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 17:40, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Please don't do that on the wiki. Loafing 17:48, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
MichaelXX2, when I asked you to not do this on the wiki, I really meant it. Seriously, it's not what the wiki is about, and it might actually get us into trouble. TBC are very lenient with the wiki regarding copyright. We try hard to not only respect their work but also their copyright. A part of this commitment is that we don't extract songs from their toons and make them available online. Again, this wiki aims at documenting the work of TBC. Please remove the links from your user page and support us in our cause. Thank you very much. Loafing 20:32, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks heaps, dude. Loafing 20:38, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Awesome People

Not trying to sound like snob, but how did I fall off of the table? BBG 21:13, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't think I kicked you off the table... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:14, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Whoops, I'm sorry! You're back on it. I might have just lost your sig somewhere along the line of adding the table. The only person I've kicked off so far is Dot Com. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:17, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

you forgot something in my sig

check out user talk:Homsarstrongbad150#you_forgot_something_in_my_sig to find out what (and continue the conversation there)

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:09, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

hey, why don't you watch my talk page so i don't have to keep coming back here every time i want to comment on my cool new sig. good idea? i'm also watching yours so you can change here if you're feelikg lazy (although, if it has to do with me, i want it on my page)

THanks HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:25, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

I am watching it. I'm a Recent Changes Patrol Officer. I see everything. And by the way, leave a space in between your post and your sig. It really messed up that time... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:32, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
i saw it and i fixed it. why come it did that?

Personal images

Hello, Michael. Please note that our personal image policy allows users only two large images plus one sig image, and you currently have four large images: Image:HomestarVS.Yoshiwelcome.png, Image:Homestar_Vs._Yoshi.png, Image:Homestarfish.png and Image:MichaelXX2welcome.png. Therefore, I'll need you to mark two of them for deletion, please. Thanks for your cooperation. Heimstern Läufer 02:41, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for complying so quickly. Carry on, sir. Heimstern Läufer 02:56, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
No problem. I'm an agreeable kind of guy. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:59, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

User Pages

Hey there, MichaelXX2, as you know, it's not allowed to edit someone else's user page. So please don't do it again without the user asking you to do it. Thank you. Loafing 11:12, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Welcoming

Once again, welcoming a user with a generic message especially one with no contributions to base any personal greeting upon is not helpful. Please refrain from doing this in the future. Wait until someone has a few edits and has developed a personality, and then welcome with something warm, friendly, and specific to them. Thanks. — Defender1031*Talk 19:44, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

You're still doing it. — Defender1031*Talk 01:37, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah...that's why we introduced the set message itself that automatically appears when a new user shows up to the wiki. Welcomes from other users usually help them out with something they seem to be having trouble with, telling them they're making very good contributions to the wiki, stuff like that. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 01:39, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
Whoops. Sorry. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 01:40, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

About IDC

Michael, this has gotten a little out of hand. Your constant remarks about It's Dot Com are getting old. You've been whining for a few days now about wanting your username changed, trying to make him or another sysop feel bad for you, and that's just plain ridiculous. He stated clearly that he wasn't going to change your username for a while, and he stands by that. If you really want him to trust you and change your username, you should start making more contributive edits to the wiki, instead of bashing him. On a side note, when you make a post on another article's talk page about something you suggest, its not un-normal for someone to not respond for a day or two. Don't keep editing the page in hopes that someone will catch your edits on the Recent Changes page and respond. Be patient. Thanks, DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 21:30, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry. I'll start by finishing a transcript of something or something. (That's confusing.) MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:32, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

HRWiki:Youth protection

Hey, as per the above linked page, please remove your email address from your user page. Thanks. — Defender1031*Talk 00:14, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

On second thought, i removed it myself. I still advise you read the above linked page to understand why. thanks. — Defender1031*Talk 00:19, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

On the contrary

I was not "making fun" of you on IRC. I think you did great work starting off the transcript. I just thought it was a bit funny that when you weren't sure of something, you typed what it sounded like instead of something like {unintelligible} or something. You can't deny that it IS sort of funny, can you? I meant no offense to you, none at all. Please forgive me. — Defender1031*Talk 22:15, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Civility

Hey there, MichaelXX2, please don't call other editors names on your user page or anywhere else on this wiki. Thank you, Loafing 23:50, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Michael, seriously. I don't want to sound mean, but your acting a bit like a drama queen. You first don't seem to want to respond to any of these people that said they were joking, then you take them off your coolest people list even though you thought they were some of the best users on the wiki before today, what's next? Again, I don't want to sound rude, but please learn to take a joke, or as DorianGray put it "ribbing". DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 00:40, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
I— don't— care. Leave me alone. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 00:42, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Invisible comments

Hi there. The reason this edit broke your page is because you're typing "<!-- comment --> {{clear}}" for invisible comments, when all you need is "<!-- comment -->". The "{{clear}}" template does something else entirely, namely, it makes the page text continue only after all images (and userboxes) have been cleared, which is why it sent everything to the bottom of your userboxes. So:

Clear:
A picture
Blah blah blah blah blah...
More blahs after the {{clear}}.
Invisible comment:

Hope that helps. — Defender1031*Talk 05:03, 24 October 2008 (UTC)


Hi Debra ;D

Personal Images

Hi there, MichaelXX2. As you know, you can only have two personal images plus one small signature image. You have three large images. Please tag one for deletion. Thanks. Loafing 22:43, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

More Civility

I asked you to not call other editors names. You have not removed the insults from your user page, so I have done this for you. Loafing 22:45, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
