Talk Page Posts

Hi, I've noticed that you've commented on some talk pages about up-for-discussion pages. Your comments were unprofessional and unrelated to the usefulness or lack thereof of the page in question. While keeping a good sense of humor is encouraged, there is a line, which I believe you might have crossed. Please try to keep it professional in the future. Happy future tranglings! — Defender1031*Talk 19:33, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

You know it's very rude to remove a talk post without replying to it. I'm trying to help you here. — Defender1031*Talk 19:38, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

srry. im new to this. so how am i not being professional? --Acam30 19:40, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Here, for example let's take your edit to Talk:Tentacle Skull:
he should totally have his own page, because he is not just just a skull, he is a skull with tentacles, which may i point out is way better. --Acam30 19:18, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
It doesn't matter how much cooler a skull with tentacles is, it matters how often it's appeared in the cartoons, whether it was a big enough influence on the toon, etc.
Also, you edited my user page by mistake, i think you meant to edit my talk page. I moved your comment there. I would love to help you out. Any questions you can feel free to ask me (on my talk page, not my user page.) — Defender1031*Talk 19:49, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

o right srry i didnt realize there was a difference. but how do u get pictures on your page because i can't figure it out. --Acam30 19:51, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

o and thanx for the advice. --Acam30 19:52, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

The basic code for adding an image is [[Image:<imagename>]] and then you can add different things like |thumb and stuff. It might be a good idea to read up on wiki code, or study the code of a page that has something similar to what you want to do. — Defender1031*Talk 19:57, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

thanx :) --Acam30 19:58, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

do you have to but the less than signs around the name? cuz it still isnt working for me. --Acam30 20:02, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

no, in computer talk <example> is an example of something. the signs just say "this isn't what you actually write here, you write whatever should go here". Hope that helps. — Defender1031*Talk 20:24, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

I saw on your user page u want tips to make it cooler? then make a user box! and put this awsome friend award!!!!

just edit copy the code above and paste in your user page it should work right defender? okay!!--Geoblu2 20:17, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

thanx for the pic! -Acam30 23:49, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

looks good! if u want to start a colum of user boxes (see my user boxes) add right above the code: { {user box top} } (minus the spaces) to make a starting box okay? okay!--Geoblu2 01:24, 31 July 2007 (UTC)


Hey there! you seem pretty new so... Welcome! You can copy my User Page if you want.--Super!SantanaDuper! 22:20, 10 August 2007 (UTC) P.S. Thank you for standing up for Tears.

Using Show Preview

Hello Acam30, I see that you have made several consecutive edits to the same page. I want to point out the Show Preview button. It's right next to the Save Page button when you edit. You should use it whenever you are making a lot of experimental edits, for example when you are trying to get formatting right. Using the Show Preview button is quicker and easier than saving and clicking "edit" again, and will keep recent changes and page histories from being flooded. Thanks,

--Stux 21:08, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip. Hopefully I'll remember. --Acam30 21:10, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
Not a problem! All it takes is a little practice and determination. Also, since the wiki is small we have a habit of keeping conversations in one place. Makes them easier to read. Take it easy. --Stux 21:15, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

You're goose is cooked

Just a single congraturation they had lying around the video game make place.

Can somebody get me a picture of when the goose is thrown at Strong Sad? I want it for me userpage but I don't know how to get it. And whoever gets me one... gets to be the coolest person ever. Thanks! --Acam30 21:41, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Here. If you need another picture of the site press the button on your keyboard that says "Print screen". Then, go into any drawing program and paste the image in. -PeterImage:Petersig.png

And here's your image of the lone congraturation. Keep in mind that this now marks your limit of two personal images. By the way, I can isolate just the congraturation by itself instead, if that's what you had in mind. OptimisticFool 03:04, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

I think only the one oyu gave me counts. I used the other picture for a userbox. --Acam30 04:20, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Since both of those images are used only on your userspace, I'm afraid they both count. You can abandon the goose one if you use one of these for your narrator userbox. It's up to you. OptimisticFool 08:07, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Oh alright thanks. --Acam30 16:45, 16 June 2008 (UTC)


Speaking of sigs, you don't seem to have one. And you don't have to have one .. even some sysops don't .. but you seem like the kind of person that might want to express herself with a sig. Correct me if I'm wrong. OptimisticFool 22:33, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes but the wiki stuff is too complex for my brain. I'd like one but I'm really just to lazy to get one... or figure out how to get one, rather. --Acam30 22:36, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm happy to help, if you want. Did it for Señor Pacoman just recently. Let me know. OptimisticFool 23:00, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks that would be awesome! Could you make it pink and have a pic of Homsar? That's pretty much it. --Acam30 01:54, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Not enough information. =] Homsar in what pose? Full body or cropped or what? Floating, standing, talking, costumed .. decapitated? Here are a few images that are already on the wiki:
Or if there's another image on the site that you want, that works, too. Or if you want me to get another screenshot for it, I can do that, too. Any pose from any toon, and I can even remove the background (or make the background pink!) if you want. Be specific. =] OptimisticFool 08:06, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Or maybe you'll just like one of these:
••Acam30 homsarpinkuk7.png
••Acam30 chibipinkpg3.png
What do you think? =] OptimisticFool 09:16, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Chibi robo! I like the Homsar pic a lot... But that pink chibi is awesome. Could you make the font bold and not italic on both of them? I'm kinda leaning towards the Homsar one but I wanna see them with a different font. Thanks! This is so awesome! --Acam30 18:58, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Bold, without italics:
••Acam30 homsarpinkuk7.png
••Acam30 chibipinkpg3.png
Here are some choices of fonts (#1 of each list is the font I used above):
1. Acam30 2. Acam30, 3. Acam30, 4. Acam30, 5. Acam30, 6. Acam30, 7. Acam30
Italics only:
1. Acam30 2. Acam30, 3. Acam30, 4. Acam30, 5. Acam30, 6. Acam30, 7. Acam30
Bold only:
1. Acam30 2. Acam30, 3. Acam30, 4. Acam30, 5. Acam30, 6. Acam30, 7. Acam30
Bold and Italics:
1. Acam30 2. Acam30, 3. Acam30, 4. Acam30, 5. Acam30, 6. Acam30, 7. Acam30
Want to see a "finished product" with any of those? OptimisticFool 20:38, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
I like the 5th bold one... could you take out the backround on this one maybe? And make him be wearing pink? --Acam30 21:22, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
The 5th one is the font the wiki primarily uses; it's called Verdana. It's what's used in my sig, and bold even. Nice choice! Now the problem with doing a full-body Homsar is that his face is white and without a background at 20px high it makes his head "disappear". (I took the gum off his face before shrinking the image, by the way.) Anyway, here are some comparisons again, this time with em dashes instead of bullets:
Acam30 homsarpinkuk7.png
Acam30 chibipinkpg3.png
Acam30 pinkhomsar20pxfn7.png
Acam30 soyrwooxt3.png
What next? =] OptimisticFool 22:34, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Oh... that is your font isn't it. Haha that last one is hilarious. I don't even remember where I linked to my DA page. I don't know if you could maybe put a shape behind the full Homsar or something? I just really don't like when the picture looks cut of with flat the edges. And maybe try the same font bold AND italics? --Acam30 03:05, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
The shape I chose was ... a circle! Anything else might be a pain in the butt, unless you wanted a rectangle, which it already was when it had its background. =] Anyway, this time I threw all the colors into one file... to save myself some time. Hopefully you can get the idea with this:
Acam30 homsaroncirclesgo6.png
•• Acam30 homsaroncirclesgo6.png
If you like the idea after having seen it, pick a color and I'll get it uploaded. And how about bullets vs. the em dash? OptimisticFool 04:35, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
I like the dash better than the bullets... the font is good and I like the first Homsar with the burgundy-ish backround. I think I'm gonna go with that stuff for the final sig. Thanks so much! --Acam30 20:13, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Done! That'll be $900. Now add {{User:Acam30/sig}} here where it says "Signature:" and check the box labeled "Raw signatures (without automatic link)" then click "Save". After that, ~~~~ will work to fill in your new sig. OptimisticFool 20:53, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Yay!!! Thanks so much for helping me! I have a signature now, whoo!!! Acam30 21:32, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
It's not quite finished. According to HRWiki:Signature, your sig must include a link to your user page. I tried adding it for you, but it wouldn't stay pink when I did it. --DorianGray 21:41, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
I fixed it! Now i'll do a dance. — Defender1031*Talk 21:44, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks guys... whoa you people are fast. Acam30 21:46, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Not fast my dear, just very very bored and obsessed with patrolling recent changes. — Defender1031*Talk 21:47, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks guys... whoa you people are fast and apparently very bored. Acam30 21:49, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Ha! I'll bet that guy that made your sig feels pretty stupid about now. After all that, he forgets to even link it. OptimisticFool 21:56, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
It's okay Opty. Everyone thinks I'm a broom. Acam30 23:47, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Background Colors

June 15
I'm getting the hang of user boxes kind of... but I need some help.How to you find the code for the backround colors? Thanks to anyone who helps!

Not sure if you'd gotten an answer to this yet... The codes for color are hexadecimal numbers and are commonly called RGB. They always start with the # sign and then are 6 digits long, the first 2 are how much red is in the color, the second 2 are for green, and the last 2 blue. 00 is the lowest value and FF is the highest. (The hexadecimal number 0xFF is 255 in decimal).

#ff0000 #00ff00 #0000ff

Some people who call themselves the "Web Design Group" have a little table reference of colors you might find handy.  Green Helmet 03:32, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

*is VERY confused* I think I'll check out that color table thing... Thanks so much! --Acam30 04:19, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Idea thief

It's okay, I stole the idea from countless other users. — Defender1031*Talk 03:01, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

So... I'm a DOUBLE IDEA THEIF? I wonder what my pay is like. Sounds like an interesting job. Maybe I'll start my own Acam30 Type Interview Progrum so I can ask myself. Acam30 03:11, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
I see you DID steal my "no life" userbox :) — Defender1031*Talk 07:22, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Well it's a good one. Half of my userboxes are stolen. Just don't tell nobodies...
Hey how do you put the strikeout effect over text? Acam30 13:23, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Easy. <s>Just put these tags around what you want to strike out</s> – The Chort 13:28, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Thank yooou. Acam30 13:32, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

The random musings of a (teenage?) girl

I like! It's kind of like an abstract thought of the day. Is a penguin a bird or a duck? — Defender1031*Talk 03:07, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Umm... I was under the impression that a duck was a bird. This raies some interesting questions...
Haha, mostly if something just randomly pops into my head while I'm on the wiki I put it there. So I can look at it later and think "Wow. There was another day when I was bored." Acam30 03:11, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
The link on your current one seems to be bad... — Defender1031*Talk 03:00, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
Ah, you have an extra | at the end of the link. — Defender1031*Talk 03:02, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I was trying to fix that but couldn't figure it out. Nice to know somebody's reading my rambling though. Acam30 01:33, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
For your information, my name ONLY starts with D in ENGLISH. — Defender1031*Talk 20:30, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

hmm... I could've sworn I stole the userbox from you... hmm I'll have to figure out where the came from. Acam30 16:16, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Maybe User:Qermaq, User:Raptor5ix, or User:The Teach! ? OptimisticFool 16:22, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Oh yes now ii remember... it was Qermaq. Acam30 17:02, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Theif. :) Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 06:02, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Did YOU steal it from other people? 'Cause even if oyu didn't I'm apparently not the only theif. xD Acam30 00:44, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
To my knowledge Raptor5ix originated it. But we're all human, aren't we? If you prick me, do I not bleed? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 05:58, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
LOLOLOLOL... Acam30 18:00, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Hey there.

Hey my bromide (sistide?) You look like a cool girl who likes to progress. I was wondering if you'd be interested in hanging out in the wiki's chatroom... Computer lab! — Defender1031*Talk 23:28, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Sure. But, uh, what do I press once I click on that link? Acam30 01:34, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
Haha I had to look up what email that was from 'cause when I first read it I thought:"What the heck is he talkin' 'bout?" I think I need to watch more new lappy-era emails. Acam30 01:37, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
Make sure "#hrwiki" has a check next to it, type "Acam30" into the nickname box, and click "Enter selected channels". — Defender1031*Talk 01:39, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
Um... now what? Acam30 01:41, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
I see you there, start talking. it's a chat. — Defender1031*Talk 01:42, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
So what exactly is the point of that? I'm still a bit confused. Acam30 02:00, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for telling me about that. You people are more interesting than talking to TBB from YouTube. Acam30 03:51, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
:) You should come back when sammi's online. — Defender1031*Talk 04:02, 16 July 2008 (UTC)


Hey wassup Acam30.I just wanna say that your likes is AWESOME!! I'm a Monty Python Fan as well. And I'm into music. So I just wanna say hi and that you may be onto something with Pom Pom and The Poopsmith Relationship comment. I think it makes some sense. - Sonicfirestorm44 21:39 19 July 08

Ha that's cool. Not many people can appreciate good british humor. And on the Pom Pom and Poopsmith article someone already kinda addressed what I said before i said it and i just didn't see it, LOL. But thanks anyways. I try. --Acam30 04:06, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
I do have to say that you did have a good point their. But yeah, british humor is really funny. -Sonicfirestorm44 13:35, 20 July 08 (UTC)
Have you ever seen Fawlty Towers? It has John Cleese in it. It's funny. Acam30 03:33, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
Yeah. Its awesome. Sonicfirestorm44 11:33, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Your SBCG4AP Question

Random Musings (August 10)

August 10
So is the game coming out at midnight? Or do I have to wait for tomorrow morning?

A Telltale employee said this:
[...] the U.S. WiiWare release will be at 9:00am Pacific Time on Monday. Barring any unforseen insanity, the PC release should be coming in around the same time.
PS— I've assumed you're in the US, bad news if you're in Europe... If so... I don't have the heart to tell you, but it's in the link above.  Green Helmet 04:03, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Thanks... oh poo. I was looking forward to playing it tonight. Acam30 04:06, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Tick Tock

I saw your rendition of the Main Page during it's brief appearance in the Sandbox, (which was awesome by the way), and just wanted to let you know: the game didn't really come out until 9am PST, so you've still got about 11 hours to finish it completely. No pressure.  ;-)  Green Helmet 05:01, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Oh yeah, no pressure at all. *''freaks out and drops everything to find the last TGS card and 2 trophies''*
By the way, Congratulations! But the real reason I dropped by was to thank you for helping me find those last two little things. Four! Four outrageous trophies! Ah hahaha! Thanks for the help!  Green Helmet 21:26, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
No problem. I like helping people when I'm able to. :D Acam30 21:31, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

My apologies

I thought the Sandbox was the Soapbox. I did not intentionally delete (or BALETE) code. My apologies good person! --O98-111-114-113 05:15, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Haha, it's okay. I found it again anyways so it's all good. Acam30 17:35, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Cool, cool, awesome! -- 17:46, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you!

Thanks for the help with the code...I was wondering how I might fix that, but I didn't get the time yet to find out! --Blow Up the Ocean 03:28, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

No problem. Glad to help. I just found that out a couple of weeks ago myself. Acam30 03:35, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

help with high school

Hello again. I read on your page that if anyone has high school advice to leave you a message. So I have some for you.

1. If you are one of the people who has trouble picking out their outfits for the next day, always plan what your goin to wear the night before.

2. Get involved with school activities, such as band, choir, drama, ect,etc.

3. Look to your best friends for relief from a tough day. Or vice versa.

4. Never wear skinny jeans on a hot day. Believe me, its get really warm in those pants.

5. Never worry about the drama of high school. You will have fun and learn stuff you never knew.

Hope that helps. =]

-Sonicfirestorm44 21:02, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. (Haha, 4 cracked me up!) That helps. I've already joined a couple clubs so I think I have the get involved thing covered. Thanks again! Acam30 12:25, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

No problem. If you ever need some more help, just leave a message. I'll be glad to help. Btw, the thing about skinny jeans is true.

-Sonicfirestorm44 17:41, 2 september 2008 (UTC)

Pwahaha! Acam doesn't really wear skinny jeans... XD But plenty of pink. ››› rly2cheat 22:32, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
I'm just saying. XD -Sonicfirestorm44 9:22, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Well, I'm glad to see from your userpage edit that you like high school! Study hard (says Heimstern, who's a teacher. :-) ) Heimstern Läufer 04:46, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

EEEEUWWW... teacher... hahaha just kidding. What do you teach? Acam30 14:08, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Have a good time in high school, Acam! It really is fun, and you'll make lots of friends who aren't in your grade. One tip: If you embarrass yourself, don't get too worked up over it (says Brightstar, who's a sophomore and has messed up more times than she can count ^_~). -Brightstar Shiner 16:38, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
