Welcome to The Homestar Runner Wiki!

Hello, and welcome to The Homestar Runner Wiki! This is the best place, as you've probably noticed, to learn about anything and everything Homestar Runner. There are a couple of things you should read up on before you really start jumping in and editing -

If you have any questions, ask them up in the HelpDesk or ask JoeyDay, or any other of the sysops or admins ('sysop' is just a special term for someone who watches over the wiki and has a few more rights than other users). I'm sure you'll catch on quickly, and all of the users are very nice here. Feel free to delete this message when you're done reading it, and I hope you stick around and join our team. Have fun! – Pertmywert (Talk·Edits), The Homestar Runner Wiki Welcoming Committee

Wilde Coincidence?

Your name is a reference to The Picture of Dorian Gray, is it not? And furthermore, does that indicate that you identify with the character Dorian Gray, or are you just a fan of the book/movie/story/author? If you are referencing the novel, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it. I'm a big Oscar Wilde fan myself, and I wrote an essay on The Picture of Dorian Gray for Philosophy class, back in June. -Polly 07:47, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Actually, I've been trying to find the novel to read. I only know about Dorian Gray from the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen film. I like reading the background of such things, which is why I want the novel. I haven't yet had an oppurtunity to get to the library yet, and it's never in at the bookstore...
EDIT: I got my mum to check the book out for me instead. All is well. --DorianGray

Sorry for the edit

Ya sorry, that was pretty stupid of me, I just wanted to see if anyone would notice and change it. I promise nothing of the sort will happen again.

That's quite all right. No lasting harm done, and it was all taken care of quickly. Thanks for apologising, though. I hope you enjoy the rest of your time here. ^-^ --DorianGray

Moved examples into list

I hope it's okay, but on Talk:Ice Cream I went ahead and moved your examples into the list itself and put a note on it so others will edit it as they see fit. If you want, repost with your opinion on whether it should be a running gag. — It's dot com 03:48, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Yes, of course it's fine. Anything for the good of the wiki, yeah? --DorianGray

England

Have a good trip! Never mind the bullocks! — It's dot com 03:30, 16 Aug 2005 (UTC)

England, huh? That's quite the trip you're taking. Hope it's a good one. We'll try to keep the wiki afloat during your absence, but it will be tough. Have a good time. —BazookaJoe 03:30, 16 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Away Message Song

I'll be away in England for the next three weeks, y'all. Sorry. To make up for my not being here to help the Wiki, I offer you this away message song. Yes, it's the same 'Believe It Or Not' song that Homestar and George Costanza have sung to before.

Believe it or not,
I'm away from the comp,
So leave a message just for me.
I must be out, or I'd IM you back.
Where could I be?
Believe it or not, you're alone!

Please, hold your applause. --DorianGray

Well, Seany-sama, how was England? If you're from Pennsylvania, how come you spell favorite "favourite"? I'm from Texas, one of your other favou—I mean, favorite places. — It's dot com 22:28, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I spell everything the English way coz, well, coz I'm so hung up on England. Originally, though, it was a side effect from visiting Neopets and it's just stuck with me. And all those other reasons about it actually being the real and correct spelling and all. And as for England itself... Well, to tell the truth, it's not so different from here, except for the television programmes, when you get right down to it. But, despite being faintly similar, it was a total blast.
Did you go to the tower, or the abbey, or the palace? Did you ride the Eye? The last time I was there, I got to drive a car by myself through the cities and highways of Scotland. That was fun, and not just a little weird being on the wrong side of the road. — It's dot com 23:57, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Me, I didn't really do much of anything a normal tourist does. I went up to stay with my friend, who I met a couple years ago online. We've been planning this forever. I stayed at her house up in Nottingham, so most of the sights I saw were generally A) really cool and loud, 2) around the general Nottingham area, and D) more "fun" than "historic" or "tourist-y". My mum and sister did the whole bus-tour thing throughout England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and even nipped down to France for a day, though. But I was more content to stay with my best friend than go sightseeing.

Sound Effects

I think it's great you're spearheading this project. Look at the formatting changes I just made (putting each table cell on a new line and a space after the align=center part). I think that makes the code easier to read. Also, be sure to link every instance in the last column. A user shouldn't have to search up and down the list for a link. — It's dot com 17:31, 14 Sep 2005 (UTC)

All right. Thanks for the advice (and the help). And I just like making lists. I have tons of similar lists on my computer (none are H*R related, though). --DorianGray

Secret

Yes, it does. I was wondering if someone would see that. you win. --— talk Bubsty edits 20:41, 25 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Synonyms

Um, have you been known to collect synonyms? I saw that in your entry. --The 386 00:31, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)

For some things. Synonyms are useful if you write a lot. That way, you don't come off as boring by repeating yourself. --DorianGray

So, we all know that. But do you REALLY do that for a livin'? --The 386 00:33, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Currently, I don't do anything for a living. I do it as more of a hobby. --DorianGray

Hobbies

I see. Why is that your hobby? --The 386 00:36, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I think 'coz I'm weird like that' works best here. Anyway, I have a lot of hobbies, some of which I take more seriously. Some, like my synonym collections, are just for fun. --DorianGray

I think you're right. If you want, you can tell me about synonyms in my talk page. --The 386 00:39, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Well, aside from all those ones for regurgitation, I only collect synonyms for 'crazy'. You can see them all here. --DorianGray

I remember learning that in school. But don't you want to tell me about it in my talk page? --The 386 00:57, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Well, I figure we're already here... Would you like me to move the discussion, then? --DorianGray

Uh, no. Just leave it here. --The 386 01:05, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)

All right then. Maybe we can continue some other time on your page. But for now, I'm gonna go... Place. --DorianGray

Okay then. I'll try to log on tomorrow. But till then, I'm outta here! --The 386 01:13, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Note

You asked for a note encouraging you to do that work on the Videlectrix games. I have left such a note here. See also the bit about the music. Thanks for being willing to do this. — It's dot com 05:05, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

Willing, yes... Unfortunately, by the time I got here, it seems someone already added all the music links (although I was able to make a few minor corrections). As to the other bit... D'you want me to just include a new "Official Videlectrix Description" section in each game, or what? --DorianGray 16:55, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
Oh, whatever you think is best. — It's dot com 17:26, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
Looks like someone beat me to the punch there, too. I did get to do some minor formatting, though... Ah, well. Next time, I won't get 12 hours sleep before starting a project. --DorianGray

Thank You

Thanks, Dorian. I didn't even notice it happened. — Lapper (talk) 17:11, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

You're welcome. Any time. Just remember: CONSTANT VIGILANCE. (And if you know that quote, you get a cookie.) --DorianGray

Yeah! Thanks, dude. First time someone trolled my page :) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:21, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

First time someone trolled my page too. But then, I was reverting all his edits, so it was to be expected. --DorianGray
I know that quote. Its from Harry Potter book 4, from Mad-Eye Moody. (Cookie please?) — talk Bubsty edits 05:30, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
*gives Bubsty a cookie* Right in one. =) Noice work, Clanky. --DorianGray

Bottommost vote

Hey Dorian. This is a reminder that only your bottommost accept vote counts in STUFF. The one from the upper voting section has been removed. Please review this and make any changes if necessary. Thanks. (And thanks for voting for my revision. :) ) — It's dot com 03:02, 20 October 2005 (UTC)

Oh, okay. I didn't know that. First time voting for a revision... Keep it the way it is, with the vote at the revised version. --DorianGray
As it turns out, I was persuaded that the revision was wrong, so I split the second half of it into its own item. You should review it an make a new vote accordingly. Sorry for all the confusion. — It's dot com 15:49, 20 October 2005 (UTC)
Oy. Complication upon complication, eh? And it seems such a simple fact... So, in essence, I voted the same way you did for both facts. Thanks for the heads-up. --DorianGray
Yeah, how did it become such a mess? ;) One last thing (and I'm really not trying to bother you with all this)... Would you like to fix your vote in the archive? If so, then please do so. Just put a note in the edit summary to see your talk page. Or I could fix it for you. — It's dot com 17:17, 20 October 2005 (UTC)
Yes, please fix it for me. No one will question it if it comes from you, I've noticed. =3 --DorianGray
I swear this is the last time I'll post on this subject on your talk page. After studying the evidence a little closer, it seems the drawing of Uncle Sam didn't come about until the 1830s. So I changed my vote to the revision. (Not that you have to vote the same way I do, but since we've been through it together this far, I thought it would only be polite for me to let you know I'd switched again. But I'm not switching any more... I hope.) — It's dot com 15:04, 21 October 2005 (UTC)
Thanks. I didn't realize that. Johnny Baby 15:47, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Hmm.. I thought I checked that

Must not have notice he was already blocked. (I really did check—honest!) — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 04:49, 26 October 2005 (UTC)

Oh, I believe you. Sometimes it's easy to glance over a name. I've done that sort of thing many times in my day. Nice catch anyway, though. --DorianGray

I wouldn't put anything in that yellow man's mouth!

Yes, your memory of a decision not to transliterate The Cheat Talk is correct: see HRWiki talk:Standards#Standardize "The Cheat Noises". —AbdiViklas 21:33, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

Ah, thanks... I can never find that when I want it. And I wonder if that urban legend about a dog's mouth being cleaner than our own even applies to yellow ones. --DorianGray

Defender of the Wiki

Handcrafted by Fell Blacksmiths
DorianGray was one of several users assiduously reverting the tsunami of edits of an IP-shifting troll-bot the night of November 11th 2005. For your heroism, this barnstar seems a small token. And your new Viking name will be DorianGray TrollBane. —AbdiViklas 08:00, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
Many congraturations!!! (Hey Wilbur, mind if I eat the last one?) — talk Bubsty edits 16:30, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
Woo! Thanks, guys. Glad to help out. I just did what anyone with the best interest of the wiki at heart would do. --DorianGray
P.S. Yeah, Bubsty, go ahead. I was just gonna put it at the end of my new card game anyway.

Yeah...sorry about that.

About the Star Wars intro on haircut, I was really tired when I heard that. The "Da Da Da Dear" sounded like the opening notes of the Star Wars main theme to me, at the time. Now it just sounds...not like that.

Anyway, sorry. ---Jeff J. W.(Talk·Contribs)hr.png

No problem. I can see how one might think that, but it's really kind of... not that. No need to be sorry. That's the way the wiki works, yeah? --DorianGray
Oh, come on. A Holiday Greeting most likely to be reverted? It doesn't sound like Chriiiii(st) to you? Listen to it one more time just to make sure. If you don't hear it though, I understand. Or did you revert it because you thought I was being in appropriate? Either way, I understand.

Sorry again. ---Jeff J. W.(Talk·Contribs)hr.png

Yeah, I'm thinkin' more of who it would offend rather than what it sounds like. The page has a history of that revert, and I was just following what AbdiViklas put last time I remember it being reverted (right down to the edit comment). Maybe we could take it to the talk page. --DorianGray
Understandable, but we didn't write/say/direct this. I thought we were here to report and act as a reference. I know it will offend a few people, but we're just supposed to state the facts, aren't we? Maybe it deserves a vote.
---Jeff J. W.(Talk·Contribs)hr.png

quote?

As you might have noticed, I have a new quote thingy on my user page. Do you have a quote you can/want to use? Just keep it under PG-13. — talk Bubsty edits 19:02, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
You came to the right guy, then. ^-^ I have a lot of quotes I use all the time... Let's see... How about this one: "Don't put off until tomorrow what you can put off until the day after tomorrow." --DorianGray
That is the first time I hear that saying in English. It's far more common in Hebrew. ("Al tidkh'e lemakhar ma she'ata yakhol lidkhot lemakhrataim") Elcool (talk)(contribs) 19:39, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
Really? That's neat... --DorianGray
Thanks. I'm usin that. — talk Bubsty edits 21:23, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

award'd

So... for being a cool person, (and for being the first person to notice my guestbook), you get the thank you award.
Thanks! — talk Bubsty edits 03:29, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
The thank you award presented to DorianGray
Thank you, and you're welcome. ^-^ And a very merry Decemberween to you too. --DorianGray
Sorry, to keep posting, but I have one more thing. After counting every single e-mail password reminder I got, (which took a long time), I found out that I got 4992 password reminders. Maybe next time Dorian... — talk Bubsty edits 03:45, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
Aw, man. Although I hope there isn't a next time... Ah, well. I'll go change mine to second place. Or "one of the most". Or something like that. --DorianGray

New Format

Hey DorianGrey. I was wondering, did you bring up your new format unto Standards? Try to clear it up with them before you implement new formats. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 00:03, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

Well, actually... It was discussed a lot under one of the Running Gags (I forget which), and was then applied to several other pages. I just was bored and thus decided to take the next step. If I was out of order, sorry. It was discussed with users I respect a lot, so I figured it wasn't too bad. --DorianGray
If you discussed it, it isn't out of order. Most people didn't like italics, though. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 00:13, 3 December 2005 (UTC)
Well, we liked italics better than the <small> tags, I think. --DorianGray

Awww, that's the sweetest guestbook signature!

Thanks! :) — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 21:53, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Any time. Coz it's true. If I had a list of favourite users, you'd be on it. --DorianGray
Really? How come? — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 21:58, 5 December 2005 (UTC)
I think it has to do with how you always get those OGGs for the debated wordstyles. That's pretty awesome. I mean, if I could do that, I'd be all the time making my own QOTWs. --DorianGray
Check out Goldwave (if you're a Windows user). It's what I use - all you gotta be able to do is record from your "What U Hear" or "Wave Out Mix" on your soundcard's mixer. STill, thanks. :) — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 22:02, 5 December 2005 (UTC)
Wow, that seems complicated. --DorianGray
It's a relatively simple and yet full-featured sound editor - personally, I think it's just as good as a more expensive package like Sound Forge. Give it a try. :) — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 22:16, 5 December 2005 (UTC)
All right, but what do I click on? Is it free? --DorianGray
On the main page, click on "Goldwave 5.12 is Available", then in the Download Links section, click on one of the links to download the program. It's shareware, and it will start prompting you to register it after a month (I think). It's something like $40 to register (or at least it was when I registered it, which was some time back). — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 22:26, 5 December 2005 (UTC)
Ooy. I dun care for shareware... Not if it's gonna prompt me for cash. --DorianGray
If you can't afford the money-cost variety, might I recommend Audacity. Or even if you can! This is the best of both worlds: it's free, and it's really high-quality non-crap. I mean, the digital music labs at both Eastman School of Music and UNC have it on their computers. Plus it's open source so it's good karma. —AbdiViklas 05:46, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
Actually, I already have Audacity. Smileyface pointed me in such a direction, when the .OGGs were being added to my pride and joy. --DorianGray

Nonsense con Carne

Hey man! what's up? I didn't even realize until now I had blatantly ... um borrowed, your nonsense incarnate line. My my, no wonder I was coming up with such "great ideas". --Stux 21:33, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

Great minds think alike? Or it could simply be that "nonsense incarnate" is simply such a great description of everyone's favourite blue midget Homestar. I, in turn, can say I got it from his character page's opening lines.
To be honest, I hadn't even noticed. But thanks for giving credit to me anyways. --DorianGray

theres water on mars!

I just saw this: PROOF THAT THERES WATER ON MARS! — talk Bubsty edits 05:07, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, there is. =3 Mars has polar ice caps. *checked the link before you even sent it* ;) --DorianGray
Aw crap. — talk Bubsty edits 05:10, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
...Bubsty. For one; what is the point of this outburst? And two; plenty of people have known for as long as I can remember that there is water on the moon. Except that it's frozen. So... Ice. There is icecaps on Mars indeed. Homestramy20|Talk 05:11, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
You guys don't get it. look at the picture. it's a joke.-- Benol, aka Coach B 05:15, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
... Homestramy20|Talk 05:18, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
{Edit conflict} Yup. Made me smile. Though it might have been more effective if they had used LIFE cereal, or the board game, and said "Life on Mars." —AbdiViklas 05:19, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
edit conflict x3 yeah, its just a joke homestramy. — talk Bubsty edits 05:21, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
I got it. I just commented with "...", because I couldn't believe how spaced of me to not realise that I shouldn't stick my nose into everything. :) Homestramy20|Talk 05:29, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
I stick my nose into everything... see! Okay, I gotta go study for my test tommorrow. --Stux 21:50, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

How could I forget?

In answer to your question of how I could forget to link Dot com's name correctly: actually, I forget that sort of thing all the time. I can be pretty absent-minded, especially when I'm thinking about otheer things, like a project that I'm working on. So, thanks for catching that one for me! I probably wouldn't have for quite some time. Heimstern Läufer 03:13, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

No problem. Maybe I'll watch it particularly, just in case it happens again. Or maybe he should just have a main namespace redirect. I mean, he's cool enough. ;) --DorianGray

Thanks!

Thank you for reverting the Peasant's quest page. I was trying to revert it, but my mom was yelling at me to get off so I didn't have a chance.--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 19:59, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

No problem. I would've reverted it earlier, but wanted to see if anyone else would get to it first. All about teamwork, isn't it? --DorianGray
Ayuh.--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 21:12, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Trollage

Wow. First troll in a while. What a waste of one of the few chances to troll nowadays. The least he could have done is waited until the dark of night, and then moved a million pages here there and everywhere... In any case, thanks for the revert. Thunderbird 21:18, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

That's what I'm here for... And it was a pretty sad attempt, truth be told. If I was a troll--which I am not, never was, never will be--I'd make something special of it, since the chance is rare, like you said. (Hopefully, we're not giving anyone any ideas. Although, my talk page and user page are rarely looked at, so there should be no problem.) --DorianGray
Oh, and just for the record, we actually had a similar incident of vandalism only about a week ago, when someone decided to blank portions of Homestar Runner (a similarly feeble effort, quickly reverted). So it actually hasn't been all that long. Heimstern Läufer 21:30, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
Haha, yea, I saw that one. I think it was Jay that got him. But the block log has been pretty sparce as of late, there's only been like a dozen blocks (3 or 4 because of trolls) since NSMC. I feel kinda special to have been able to block one of the few trolls in the past while. And yeah DorianGray, you gotta watch for 'em. Take it from someone who once was one - Trolls are a sly bunch. Thunderbird 21:34, 19 December 2005 (UTC) DorianGray's mother was a hampster, and his father smelled of elderberries!
Oh, yeah... That one totally slipped my mind. Shows how pathetic it truly was, yeah? And not all are such a sly bunch, yeah? --DorianGray (I use the word "yeah?" too much, don't I?)
Actully, it was PFloyedPotter who did the blanking, and *ahem* I reverted it. — talk Bubsty edits 21:57, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
Funny, that's not quite how I remember it... nor how the history of that page remembers it... Heimstern Läufer 21:59, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
Oh. *turns red* Then it was me who put him on the offenders list. — talk Bubsty edits 22:57, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

thanks

Thanks for putting me on your fav users list. — talk Bubsty edits 22:46, 23 December 2005 (UTC)
^-^ Any time. But shh! It's a secret! =P --DorianGray
Ditto. :D Thunderbird 01:55, 24 December 2005 (UTC)
SHH! How do you people keep finding this? =3 --DorianGray
I was seeing how you made the unnofficial QOTW, and saw it. — talk Bubsty edits 02:50, 25 December 2005 (UTC)
Peekin' at the secret inner workings of my page, eh? =3 Well, that's why I have it. Speaking of my QOTW, I should make some more of those... I only have enough to last 'til, like, February. --DorianGray
I'd like to take credit for having found the list minutes after it was created. Not exactly hard, though, since I was patrolling the recent changes at the time. But I decided not to mention it, since you said it was a secret. I guess not no more! Heimstern Läufer 02:59, 28 December 2005 (UTC)
And I thanked you for it on the IRC chnnel, so that counts too. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 06:29, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

Reverts

I would like to help out the site. Can you tell me how a revert works? Marth 99

Sure I can! When a page has been trolled or had a bad edit made, the simplest way to change it back is to revert it. Each page has a history of every edit made to it, see. Up at the top, you'll notice a little tab marked "history" (it's the fourth from the left, usually). Click on that and it'll bring up a page of all the edits made to that page, most recent ones on the top. Find the version you want to change it back to and click the date for that version. This will bring that version up in the window for editing. Just type "reverted" or "rv" (or "rv/v" for vandalism) ito the edit summary box beneath it and hit "save page". And that will correct the whole page! I hope that helps. If not, check out the Help pages for more information. --DorianGray

Danke

Thanks for reverting my user page from that vandal. That's a first for me, getting vandalised. Heimstern Läufer 00:19, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Well, I certainly wasn't going to just leave it, yeah? Oddly, I've reverted several people's first trollings. --DorianGray
Sure, I knew you wouldn't just leave it, but I thought I'd still thank you. I suppose with my revert-happy trigger finger I'm probably getting vandals mad at me by now and it was sure someone would come after me. Great way to celebrate the new year, don't you think? Heimstern Läufer 05:14, 2 January 2006 (UTC)
Happens all the time. If you check the Contribs of trolls who vandalise userpages, I bet most will have another edit that was reverted by the same person whose page they ruined. I know this coz it's happened to me several times. It's nice to get back in the trenches again, though, isn't it? --DorianGray
That's what I'd always thought about that (I remember one vandal who wrote an obscene message about Thesmokingmonkey after he made a revert). Which I find interesting, since I'd never reverted anything by this guy. He seems to have been nothing but a troublemaker: he just want after me and Has Matt? for no obvious reason. But I had always figured it would happen someday. And yes, it's good to be back in the trenches. I love reverting crappy edits again! Heimstern Läufer 05:33, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Happy New Year!

I know it's a little late, I just wanted to wish you a happy new year, and may you finally beat Stinkoam 20X6! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 10:20, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Thankies. And I'm getting pretty good at the -0 levels... I can get to somewhere 'round the middle of -0.2 (I think that's the one). --DorianGray
Happy also late new year! — talk Bubsty edits 03:28, 3 January 2006 (UTC)
And the same to you, my friend! ^-^ --DorianGray

Happy very, very, very, very, very, very, very, etc. with the verys, late New Year.LePorello / T / C 02:15, 10 January 2006 (UTC) P. S. I'll help you with Stinkoman 20X6 if you need it. I'm just a click (cool click sound) away. (Though I'm not on the Wiki as often as I would like. Booooooo.)

Ten days. That's very very. — talk Bubsty edits 02:19, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
Better late than never I always say. =D And my main problem with Stinkoman (aside from how small the life bar is, but that can't be helped) is that I have a slow response time. It's like, "Hey, that thing shot me. I'd better move in case it does it again." --DorianGray

Drawing of Darth Katana X

Yo, Dorian. I was wondering if you would draw a picture of Darth Katana X for my profile. I see by your guestbook entry and your deletion of AbdiViklas' note on John Reuben that you've seen my profile. You can read up on my Sith Apprentice there, if you haven't already.

He looks like Inuyasha dressed like Darth Vader, but he's only wearing Vader's headgear. And he has a big, glowing Katana Sword. So, would you mind drawing that? Because that'd totally rock - thanks one million! Darth Katana X (discussionitem_icon.gif user.gif mail_icon.gif)

I'd be totally willing to give it a try, although I can't promise top quality. But I shall still try! DorianGray never backs down from a challenge, believe it! I'll get on that first chance I have. --DorianGray

Awesome! Thank you! Supashi-bo! Darth Katana X (discussionitem_icon.gif user.gif mail_icon.gif)

And now it is complete. You can see the pic on DeviantART, complete with my comments, here. If you want to direct link to it, it's also on PhotoBucket. Feel free to copy and resize as you see fit. --DorianGray

That is so cool! Thanks so much for taking the time to draw my character. I'm-a post that on my user page. Darth Katana X (discussionitem_icon.gif user.gif mail_icon.gif)

Oh, any time. Glad to to it. Also glad you like it. --DorianGray

You've won the Platypus Award!

Yay! You've won the Platypus award! Congradgulationsingtonish! This award is really for you're help with my userpage, finding most of the Homsar quotes. Enjoy!Image:platypusaward.jpg

Ooh, many mahalos. I was glad to do it. And if you need any help again in the future, don't hesitate to give me a ring. --DorianGray

Ha ha ha!

Your Quote of the Week with Homestar saying he doesn't wear Marzipan's skirts anymore was hilarious! Keep it up, man! Nintendostar_Runner

Yeah, I liked that one. I should get to work collecting more. I only have enough to last for February... --DorianGray

lol

I burst out laughing when I saw this. It's just funny to think of someone gnawing their leg off all the time. Thekillerdynamo 20:48, 22 January 2006 (UTC)
You'd probably run out of legs awfully quickly, too. --DorianGray

Vandals

Yes, um, the Welcoming page said to welcome people no matter what. (Trust me, it's there). But, um, sorry 'bout that. I'll stop for the day. (or week, if needed) Bluebry 02:07, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Hmm. Maybe we need to change that...? I'll bring it up at the next board meeting. =P --DorianGray
K Bluebry 03:26, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
Anyways, good luck. It's at least a good thing that you read the policies and stuff. I'm sure you'll do HG HJHG HAAAALL right. --DorianGray
I learn'd a new word! WoW. Cool. Also, I made another poll. Bluebry 01:07, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

MLS QOD

Hey DG, how'd you get the Old-School Homestar for your newest quote? LePorello / T / C 14:39, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

I actually took a screen shot from... personal favourites, I think. I cropped out everything but his head, and rotated, resized, and/or flipped it 'til it was layered perfectly over a normal Quote of the Week box with the current Homestar in it. And there it was: one old-school Homestar quote. However, since my editing software is now kaput, I can't do any more specialised quotes like that. Ah, well. --DorianGray
What do you mean kaput? --Stux 18:36, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
It won't load anymore. Click it, nothing happens. Also, since all PNGs are saved to open directly from that program, now if you wish to open a PNG, you have to right click and find "Open With..." and open it with something like Picture and Fax Viewer or Paint. --DorianGray

Verboten

Re: this edit: Or, to put it another way, "If she could have done one thing to make absolutely sure that every single person in this school will read your interview, it was banning it!" Heimstern Läufer 06:02, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Yes, quite... =3 That one never occurs to me 'til later, though. --DorianGray

You won!

Combolations on winning the Object of the Week! You get these fine leather jackets. Bluebry 23:01, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Oh, awesome. My very own these jackets. Mahalo. --DorianGray

Oops

Well, good grief. Many apologies, DorianGray. How foolish of me; I really have no idea how that happened. Man, I need to take a wiki-vacation or something. —FireBird|Talk 22:29, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

No problem. It was easily fixed, although I admit I did have a sudden heart palpatation when I saw it on Recent Changes. It's easy to get confused when the RC is all clogged like that. Keep on doin' your thing, man. --DorianGray
Thanks for understanding. My heart, too, had a bit of a shaking when I realized what I had done. —FireBird|Talk 22:35, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
Wait, what did he do? Just wondering why you guys are having heart palpatations. Seriously (Talk) 22:49, 12 February 2006 (UTC)
He accidentally blocked me for a few seconds during a big flood of vandalism. --DorianGray

Clarifying edit summary

[1] That's the user list from the 'Tavi Wiki. I guess Jones copied that here in case old.hrwiki.org ever goes off line. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 06:43, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Ahh... I figured it was something like that. Thanks for clearing that up. --DorianGray

Parody wiki

Go here I'll make u a sysop --TheThin 19:44, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

No thanks, for the same reasons as E.L. Cool. --DorianGray

Userboxes (and more!)

Yeah, DG. I saw what you did with the userbox that I added. It's OK; I found it prooty humorous. And I remember you being blocked on the 9th. I actually saw the unblockage first, and I thought, "Huh? How'd Dorian get blocked?" HEE HO HEE! Oh, and is it OK if I use your "tomorrow" quote on my page. Keep up the good work! LePorello / T / C 16:57, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

A) Glad you don't mind. It was a little long, and it's actually how I feel. o_o I'm gonna be twenty in 5 months exactly, and I feel ancient.
2) Yeah, the block was pretty freaky. I had a premonition I'd end up on that list somehow, but I don't do anything bad. So that's that, then.
D) Sure it's fine. =3 I love that quote. It's the procrastinator's creed.
Keep on tranglin'. --DorianGray

Weird

You know, just now you reverted 3 pages that I was also reverting. Weird huh? LePorello / T / C 20:45, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Yep, that happens when two good users are fightin' an annoyance together. --DorianGray
Yeah. Hi-five, man. (loud clap)LePorello / T / C 20:49, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

HELP!!!

SOMEBODY MESSED UP TAMPO'S WELCOME MESSAGE HE SENT ME!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT HAPPENED???????????????? --Not a Robot

It was a persistent vandal around here by the name of Dr. Who. Don't worry, I fixed it. It's very hard to do permanent damage around here, especially with such vigilant users. --DorianGray

Hacking

I think someone hacked onto my compy. User:Some stupid idiot somehow came up on my watchlist, but I didn't even know it existed! Please tell me it's a problem with Mediawiki. Bluebry 20:56, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

Do you watch User:FireBird? Someone tried to move FireBird's page to that name, which is probably why it came up in your watchlist. --DorianGray
Oh, wait, I DID put his talk page under my watchlist because I was waiting fo a reply. Thanks! Bluebry 21:00, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
No problem. Glad to alleviate your fears. =) --DorianGray

Thank You Again

Thanks for rv-ing the vandalism to my userpage. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 22:52, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome. Glad to do it. =) I mean, not, like, glad to see vandalism. Like, glad to help out the wiki any way possible. You know. --DorianGray
Yeah, I know what you meant. It's kinda ironic, really, that Dr. Who vandalized my userpage. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 22:54, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
Ironic in what way? --DorianGray
Ironic that he would vandalize a former vandal's userpage. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 22:58, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
Ah, yes. Who knows, though, maybe you'll get to revert him. Then he'll be reverted by a former vandal, and that's almost poetic, I think. --DorianGray
Then he'll revert TARDIS, the next vandal to come along. :=) With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 23:03, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
And so on, until it makes a cycle, and Willy on Wheels and NSMC are simultaneously reverting each other. --DorianGray
Then it turns out that Willy on Wheels was Jimbo Wales all along, and NSMC was JoeyDay all along, LOL. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 23:22, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Gasp* WHAT?! Oh, scandalous Nah, I'm just kidding. — Seriously (Talk) 23:36, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
I've always wondered if Willy was Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger, who left the project and turned against the idea of such a site. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 23:40, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
Sorry for hijacking your talkpage. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 23:40, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
No, I don't mind. It's very quiet tonight. This helps. --DorianGray

Oh, well if it helps, this is another false alarm. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 05:41, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Pizza

Did you eat pizza? --TheThin 22:57, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

Not today, but I've been thinking about it an awful lot. --DorianGray

Why?

Why did you remove my picture from the halloweener page? You gotta give me some credit. I'm a full wiki member, and I don't deserve to have my image deleted. Also, if you think it's ugly, keep it to yourself. Sorry, but I don't find this very respectful. Chess Cheese

It's not relevant because tons of people do fanart of all sorts of toons all the time. That doesn't make it necessary to mention in an encyclopedic knowledge-base. It's nothing against you. Anyone's would be deleted. --DorianGray

Well, this is a big slap in the face to art. Chess Cheese

Sorry, but that's how things are. Maybe you should check out our Fanstuff Wiki...? That's the creative companion to this wiki. --DorianGray

Squeaketycoo

On the other hand, can we hold up just a sec on the unsqueaking? I think there are a few times when it's okay. After all, Strong Bad does call "a little yellow squeaky thing". Specifically, if he makes a single noise, like "Meh!", that isn't exactly a scream, then I think that could best be called a squeak. It's more wieldy than THE CHEAT: {makes a The Cheat noise}. Also this seems like a good candidate for squeaking: the intent is to say he "sings along," but what the Cheat does can't really be called singing. About the best thing it can be called, then, is squeaking. —AbdiViklas 17:23, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Well, there's pretty much nothing left to correct anyways, so I can definitely hold up for a while. =3 Fix whatever you like; I guess there ARE some times when it's okay, like you said. --DorianGray
Cool. I think I'll just revert a few on the basis of wieldiness. For the record, the original crusade was to correct instances where people had tried to transliterate The Cheat noises into our alphabet. If you see any of that still around, a small train needs to be dropped. At least a caboose. —AbdiViklas 17:28, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
I always look out for those. I think that's actually referred to a few entries earlier up my talk page. Along with putting words in his mouth. Always watch out for those, I do... --DorianGray

Hi, Dorian!

Hi Dorian, I saw you wondered about my name. Well--in short--I made it up. It's basically the name I use everywhere, unless it's more formal (in which case I use the long form, Katori), or in the rare case where there's something better (like Coach Z on BHZ's forum ;)). I made it up a few years ago. Occassionally I use it in stories as well. :) Nice to meet you!! --Kato

Likewise. =) I have a character named Kato, who's one of my most popular creations, is why I asked. --DorianGray

Awsomeness!

You like the same shows and games I like! =D (i.e. Kingdom Hearts, Drawn Together, Seinfeld, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Paper Mario Thousand-Year Door, the list goes on and on!) --Dacheatbot · Communicate 05:58, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

Cool-cool. =) Those are all among my favourites. Nice to meet another fan, yeah? --DorianGray
Yeah, I'm a PM:TTYD fan, too. Oh, and I consider it your fault that I'm now addicted to El Goonish Shive. =P - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)
Hehehe. I do what I can. And you're not the first to express a similar sentiment to me. =3 --DorianGray

Countervandalism

Prepare to feel the fluoride sting of the DorianGray!

Hey Dorian:

I wanted to let you know that you are one of the best countervandals I've ever known. Before I was a sysop, I remember how often the two of us were working together to stop a persistent vandal. Since I became a sysop, I find myself blocking vandals after being alerted by your reverts.

You've already received the Defender of the Wiki barnstar for revering NSMC, but I felt it was time for you to get a little more recognition: not for one act of countervandalism, but for a long history of defending this wiki. I'm leaving you this image to let you know you'll always be a colonel in the Homestarmy in my mind. Keep up the good fight, man. Constant vigilance! Heimstern Läufer 21:10, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

And the same to you. =) I'm happy to help any way I can, and will continue to do so as long as I can. ^-^ Thanks very much for the recognition. It makes me feel special. I'm glad to be part of such a dedicated wiki, and to know such dedicated users. May you continue to great things too. =) --DorianGray

You Following Me?

i was reading over my talk in random things, and ive gotten a lot of responses from you. thanks! now i know that other people patrol the recent changes pages:)-Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifHomsar7(Hom · Sar)Image:Homsar-in-motion.gif

Oh, yeah. Lots of people do. That's pretty much how I spend my day. Checkin' the recent changes for stuffs. --DorianGray

Hawaii

Since you wanted to know about Hawaii so bad I am making a Hawaiian Journal On my Talk page and Day 1 is up.--Dacheatbot · Communicate 23:08, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Cool. I'll definitely have to take a look. --DorianGray

Once again...

Like the other countless vandalism reverts you've done, someone has to thank you. So I will. :) Seriously, you astound me with your amazing abilities to represent the wiki like you do. — Seriously (Talk) 19:52, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

^-^ I jus' do what anyone with the best interest of the wiki at heart would do. *sweatdrop* An' I did mess up a little towards the end there, if you check the move log. Shh! Is a secret. o_o --DorianGray
LOL. Heimstern, we've got a possible vandal, and he doesn't seem stable...</useless gossip> — Seriously (Talk)
Nah, I jus' misread the move log entry and thought he'd moved my page, so I hit the revert. Then realised that was the entry for privileges I'd just done. So I had to re-revert it. Happens to the best of us sometimes... --DorianGray
Heh. I saw that error during that mess. Wasn't going to bring it up, but since you did... Well, you might be interested in this edit. Heh. I was a little new to the rollback button at the time. :-) Heimstern Läufer 21:04, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
Y'know, that reminds me of something Has Matt? and some others did a while ago in the sandbox...gimme a sec to find it, it's really funny. — Seriously (Talk) 21:07, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
Here it is. It includes sysops reverting vandalism fighters, Kilroy sailign the ocean blue, and much, much more! :P — Seriously (Talk) 21:10, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
Hehehe, I remember that... --DorianGray

Homestar Singing

Thanks for the help with the formatting and writing style on that page. - Totoro 19:44, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

Oh, any time. I love to help out where I can. And it's a neat page, too. --DorianGray

Copyright category

Hey Dorian. It looks like you found a good category for that category. Just so you know, those templates are some advance work I'm doing in preparation for our switch to MediaWiki 1.6. — It's dot com 01:07, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I wasn't planning to tag anything with them. Although, I do have a question. Is there anything you'd tag my personal image with? It's art a friend of mine drew, so it really doesn't fit anything that I know of... Also the one I drew for Darth Katana X. Anything you'd class those under? I've been wondering for a while now... --DorianGray
I think the path of least resistance would be to slap a {{permission}} tag on 'em. I should point out that there are others with way more experience than I when it comes to image copyright tags, so you might could get a better answer. — It's dot com 05:20, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
I'll put that on 'em, then, unless/until someone else finds something better. --DorianGray
Well, unless your friend specifically agrees to release the rights to the picture, {{permission}} is the most appropriate template. There's basically 3 types of image tag:
1) The owner says we can use it ({{permission}})
II) The owner says anyone can use it ({{gfdl}}, the Creative Commons licenses, etc)
C) The owner hasn't said we can use it, but we're using it anyway under Fair Use ({{web-screenshot}} et al)
(plus the tags that say "we really shouldn't be using this", like {{no license}}). This image is clearly under group 1, (unless your friend wants to move it into II). --phlip TC 05:36, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
I can ask her. Right now, even. --DorianGray
She says she'd prefer it left as {{permission}}. So that's all good then. --DorianGray

Sorry

I don't think I said this or not, but you know when I created those sockpuppets on here? Well if you do then I am sorry for trying to trick people into thinking that I wasn't making them. Do you forgive me?--H*Bad 21:00, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Apology accepted. =) The important thing is that you learned from your mistake, right? Not gonna do it again, yeah? =) That's what really matters. We can be quite forgiving 'round here, I think. --DorianGray
Unless your name has NSMC or ON WHEELS in it. And yes I did learn my lesson.--H*Bad 21:50, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
That's true. We don't have much forgiveness for those guys. They don't learn, or try to reform. Unlike you, eh? Good luck to you, and all your wiki...ing. --DorianGray

Wiki

How do you say Wiki?--H*Bad 21:56, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Some say "wick-ey", some say "wee-kee". I say the former. (See wiki at Wikipedia.) — It's dot com 21:59, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
Me personally? I say it "wee-kee". It's from the Hawaiian wikiwiki, which means "quick" (refers to how easy it is to edit on here). So I use the pronounciation that's directly from the Hawaiian root, mostly due to my slight obsession with Hawaii. However, for some reason, I pronounce "Wikipedia" as "wick-i-pee-dee-a". --DorianGray
I say it the same way. Which is why I was wondering. Thanks again.--H*Bad 22:03, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
Any time. Always glad to help, if I can. --DorianGray
"Wee-kee-pedia" is really hard to say... Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 22:08, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
I've always thought wick-ey has a nice ring to it. --Garfunkel 22:09, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
Due to a certain locational obsession I have, I've occasionally pronounced it "vee-kee". :-) But not usually. Heimstern Läufer 22:38, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
Here's a fascinating piece of trivia for you: Mike pronounces it "wick-ey" (cf. animal DVD commentary). — It's dot com 23:18, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
That is neat. =) Cool to know, as I have no DVD access myself. --DorianGray
Aw Hebrew don't have a letter for the W sound, some of my friends say it like Viki. I usually switch back and forth from W to V, depends who I'm talking to. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 05:27, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
Then there's always the less common "Why-Kai" (Sounds like Wi-Fi). Though I don't usually use it, it still sounds pretty cool. Thunderbird 05:51, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
That, of course, leads to the question "Why not Kai?" (Feel free to choose any other Kai you like, too.) --DorianGray

Senior Prom, I Am The Walrus edit

Oh, sorry. I thought my computer messed up, so I added it again. And by the way, iTunes Listed the song 'I Am the Walrus' under styx. Check if you have it.

Sorry, I don't. Maybe they remade it...? (*should look that up*) But it was originally performed by The Beatles. No harm done, though. Catch you later. =) --DorianGray
Have a look at Wikipedia:I Am The Walrus#Cultural references, in particular the "cover versions" bit. I'm guessing the version on iTunes is the Styx cover, rather than the Beatles original. If I remember correctly, there was issues between the Apple that owns iTunes and the Apple that owns the Beatles songs... so for a long time there were no Beatles songs on iTunes... I dunno if it was ever resolved. --phlip TC 12:37, 17 June 2006 (UTC)
Cool... Thanks for the info. That's neat. --DorianGray

um...

hello, i was wondering...as i was reading your page, you spelled "favorite" as favourite". i have a question.

are you english and if so did you enjoy sb_email 22? -Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifHomsar7(Hom · Sar)Image:Homsar-in-motion.gif

Nope, I'm not English, but one of my best friends is. I just picked it up both from her and an obession with Neopets. =3 And I still find sb_email 22 funny, if short. --DorianGray

Homsar's Speech

Hey Dorian. :) Just wanted to thank you for the flowers you sent me while I was in the hospital help on my Homsar's Speech project! Seems like we're almost done, and so far I've only found two, maybe three things he's ever said that are genuine word salads. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 22:17, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Oh, any time. It was fun, as Homsar is quite th' character... And now I have, like, most of his line memorised, I think. I really like seeing the analyses of each line... He's more coherent than I originally thought. o_o --DorianGray
Sure seems to be. I think this project conclusively proves that Homsar is actually pretty "with it" - just random in the way he communicates with others. Once the project is done, I'm wondering if we should make this an actual article that we can then point to from the main Homsar article or its Talk page... or otherwise include the analysis on the Talk page, or something. It's useful data that can help to define and refute the "word salad" assertion on both Homsar's page and the Wikipedia page. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 22:32, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I really like it... Quite an interesting article. Sheds new light on a beloved wacky character. And Homsar is now reminding me of a character of my own, who also speaks in an unusual way (example: she uses the word "circle" instead of "family"). --DorianGray

Thanks for the Memo

Yeah, I'm sorry about he mishap. Yes, it was me who was editing my page. I'm sorry for the confusion, and I've set it to auto log-in from now on so it does not happen again. Thanks again, Omegalord

No problem. I have mine set like that myself. Hope we didn't set you back too much with our reverts. --DorianGray

Dinosaurs and Genus

A "genus" is one single level up from "species", so saying that dinosaurs are their own genus is not only not true (there is more than one genus of Dinosaur - quite a few, in fact!) but also not relevant - They are part of the Sauropsid class, which is the class containing all reptiles (it also happens to include birds.) --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 05:03, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

I always get those rotten kingdom, order, phylum, species things mixed up... --DorianGray

Recent Valiant Efforts

I'd give you a defender sword, but I see you already have one. In any case, that was some first class reverting. Sorry there were no sysops on hand at the time to drop the hammer. Thunderbird 23:20, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

It was kinda fun. I haven't done high-class reverting like that in a long time. Thankies. =) --DorianGray

Sysop

Hey Dorian. It is my pleasure to announce that you have been given sysop privileges and responsibilities. If you have any questions, never hesitate to ask. May you always use your powers for good and for awesome. — It's dot com 05:04, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Y'know, I think I had something planned out I was gonna say, but now I've forgotten. Ah, well. Mindless meanderings will have to do. --DorianGray

Glad I didn't miss this by too much. I'm at my aunt and uncle's house and they only have dial-up, so I've been a bit scarce at the wiki lately. Well, I've been wondering for awhile when this was coming. ;-) Clearly my position as the new sysop with the most block log entries is in danger. I've no doubt you'll be ready to give those vandals some serious p0wnage. Now more than ever before, "Constant vigilance!" Heimstern Läufer 17:42, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
Didn't I say that you will be made sysop? Oh yeah I did. Heh, I guess I can pick the winners. Anyways, congradulations.--H*Bad 11:06, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
Congratulations Dorian. Sorry I haven't been around as much as I used to, or I would have noticed the promotion alot sooner. In any case, here's a belated congratulations upon your sysophood. Thunderbird 04:58, 2 October 2006 (UTC)
Dorian, After the long time I was gone, I am honored to server under you. (Explodes in Bows) --Dacheatbot · Communicate 03:13, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

Trying to make this Userbox work

Hi there, I was just wondering if you could help me (or know who could). I made a new userbox for my userpage which uses a random Homsar quote. I tried to add it to the Userbox page and it won't work because of the template inside a template format, the homsarquote template I mean. It works ON my user page and outside of the <userboxsampes> tag, just not inside of it. Any idea how to make that work? --Image:Stinkwing.gif »Bleed0range« 21:05, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

Hmm, I dunno much myself, but I'll certainly ask around. I know a few people who might be able to help, maybe. I's not much good with coding and stuff myself. *sweatdrop* Let you know once they get on, or something. --DorianGray
Have a look at this example in the sandbox [2]Loafing 21:20, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
Thanks Loafing, but I think you misunderstand the problem. It will work inside that. Look at my userpage and you will see what I made. It's making it work inside the <userboxsample> tag on the Userbox page. The page with the preview and code next to it? It won't work in there for some reason.--Image:Stinkwing.gif »Bleed0range« 21:38, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
Oh, I see now. That looks like a bug in userboxsamples. It's dot com would be the guy to fix that. Loafing 07:48, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
Anybody out there know if this Homsar Quote thing will work on the Userbox page? .... anybody--Image:Stinkwing.gif »Bleed0range« 07:29, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Great minds

Would you believe that I was attempting to add that "See also" thing at the same time as you and got Edit Conflict'd? And I believe it was last seen in big white face. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 17:52, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Wow, great minds do have similar thought processes, or however the saying goes. =3 big white face seems right, but I may have been thinking of another (can't remember where, though. I think it was a game, maybe). --DorianGray

Oops...

Sorry. I was the one who made that "Kick The Cheat" edit on the "Twin Characters" section. Thanks for correcting me! (I completely forgot about artistic licence)! Just wanted to let you know I appreciate the help, and I'll consider that factor next time!... 4kai2lyn6...

No problem. That edit, and many similar ones, all used to be there until very recently, when we started to rethink the page. Sometimes it's just hard to tell. --DorianGray

Quotes

Everything I've ever read or seen said that even if only one word of a quote was being used that punctuation should be in the quote. So before I go and change how I edit and grade such things, can you show me where you found the rule you're using? - Ilko Skevüld's Teh C 18:39, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

HRWiki:Manual of Style. --DorianGray
Got it. Not sure if I agree with it, but will abide while here. - Ilko Skevüld's Teh C 18:48, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
No problem. --DorianGray

Thank you!

Thanks for the fixes! My first STUFF contrib.  ;) Jedi liz 05:39, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

No problem. For a first-time STUFFer, you did very well. =) --DorianGray
w00t! and look, they're voting for me! ha. that's what happens when you delete MY contribution to hrwiki. Kay-POW! Jedi liz 14:15, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
Hehehe, you must have some very convincing arguments. =3 --DorianGray

Huh?

You said "This really can't be proven, seems speculative, not the full H'ween toon, and it's a real shirt." about my edit. Can you explain further? I thnk TBC put that there for people to ponder it? Can you please put it back? --TheYellowDart(t/c)

It's speculation to assume TBC put it there for people to ponder, because we don't know what they were thinking. We run a knowledge base, based in fact, not assumption. It was not the full, official Halloween toon for that year, and they probably didn't use Homestar's costume for spoiler reasons. To round it out, Homestar's shirt is a real shirt, generally used by people too lazy to wear a real costume (like people who answer the door for trick-or-treaters, for example). Those are the reasons I took it out. --DorianGray

Help out

  • Hey, I'm thinking about creating a new page, but I don't know what to call it and I don't know all of its info. The page will be about interuppted names Strong Bad usually starts sounding out before getting interrupted by someone. Such as in bottom 10: He says, "and the number one spot in my bottom 10 is... Th--" and then gets interrupted. Please help out. I am sending this to all sysops. --TheYellowDart(t/c)

Reverts

Ah, good to see someone noticed. I highly suggest protecting pages that transclude onto the main page. I don't suppose you all like pseudo-vandals who test security, but consider this a security wake up call, for lack of a better word. 74.224.137.55 01:54, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

STUFF talk

About Hrjogger's vote, I assumed he wanted to vote in the only valid voting revision, since he put his vote on the old one, even though the new one has been made. Does ths make sense? TheYellowDart(t/c)

Just because a revision has been made doesn't make the original vote not valid. --DorianGray
It doesn't? Then which revision gets the final verdict? Both of them can't. TheYellowDart(t/c)
I'd guess whichever has a better accept-to-decline ratio (if it gets accepted). --DorianGray
Okay, thanks for telling me. Now I know better.  :-) TheYellowDart(t/c)

DorianGray:

No need to be a jerk, dude. "Ugh?" "Not at all aesthetically pleasing?" Give me a break. That's an exaggeration -- especially since it's a matter of your personal taste -- and regardless of your preferences, the harsh words are completely unnecessary.

I guess you don't want people to constructively contribute if you're going to behave like that.

No offense meant. It's just that strong stylistic changes like this should be brought before the community and discussed beforehand, before any changes go into effect. Mebbe I was a little harsh, but it really does look bad. It doesn't fit at all. --DorianGray

STUFF

Yeah, got that. As soon as you pointed it out in the edit summ back there, I checked the rules. Thanks. Rowsdower45 18:15, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

No problem. In fact, if you look quite a ways up 'round about section 13 (heh. Section 13... Fun. =3 ), I had the same problem myself, eons ago. --DorianGray 19:30, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

KHI

Are you on KHI too? There is a Dorian Gray there too. Just curious. Toasty! 20:41, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Nope. What's KHI? =) --DorianGray 20:42, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Forum on Kingdom Hearts. Its pretty big.

forums.khinsider.com Toasty! 20:49, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Nope. HRWiki and related sites (i.e. HRWiki forum and that ol' fanstuff place) is the only place I've ever used the name "DorianGray". --DorianGray 20:51, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

OK then, just makin sure. :D Toasty! 20:53, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Yep. So don't go botherin' this person with fond wiki reminisces, coz I'm sure they won't know what on earth you're talking about. =3 --DorianGray 20:58, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Oh, he doesn't have what I have either. --DorianGray 19:01, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
You missed one. And so did the Ancient Egyptians, Babylonians and maybe even the Phoenecians, but not the Greeks. Definitely not the Greeks. =0 --Stux 20:27, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Ow. More than I wanted to read. --DorianGray 20:28, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Sorry about that crap on the grinch

My cousin added that he is Nine and likes Homestar but adds stupid stuff that are very unlikely so dont Blame me (75.8.34.131 is out)

Don't worry, he's not the only one who saw a reference there. And we also appreciate him trying to make a contribution to the article. He has done nothing wrong :-) Loafing 21:36, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, ditto. --DorianGray 22:24, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Podstar fix

Hey Dorian,

I just wanted to let you know that the podstar links need to be piped instead of spaced, otherwise the link will be broken! I'd fix all occurrences myself, but I have this big project to turn in for tommorrow, and I can't procrastinate any more than I have! :) --Stux 02:13, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Oh, right. My computer really effed up while doing that one, so I probably overlooked it in that case. Most of the time, I'm pretty sure I fixed it to be piped... --DorianGray 04:40, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
Oh! I see... sorry about that, nevermind then, I guess it was just a fluke that I happen to check out the one link that wasn't piped! :) --Stux 06:41, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
Well, I'm glad you did, coz it probably would've gone unnoticed for days, weeks on end otherwise. =3 --DorianGray 06:45, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
NP! Any time! And it's good to be lucky sometimes. --Stux 08:34, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

quite certain he says "oh my lan"

Considering that Renold says before hand: "Get your hands off those floppy disks and fiscal reports" it would suggest he says oh my lan. oh my land isn't even a saying.

For the sake of argument, I recorded the part he said and played it over, there is no audio wave that suggests him saying "d" after lan.

http://fileupload.ning.com/mov/3771583

"Oh my land" still makes more sense than "LAN", but whatever. I don't feel strongly enough about it to argue. --DorianGray 04:44, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

No longer newest

You were only the newest sysop for at most 59 seconds. [3] — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 03:40, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Hmm. I always felt he was before me anyway... Not even in HRWiki:A History, even though I thought I put him first...
Maybe, since it occurred during the same minute, we're BOTH the newest sysop simultaneously. A shared title. And thus my statement remains valid.
I was never one to be perfectly accurate anyway. =3 --DorianGray 03:43, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

"Spin and say"

I don't understand why the name was changed, nor why we can acknowledge the fact that it was changed. Can you tell me exactly why we can't acknowledge this fact? Was there a copyright issue? If so, we can just mention that the TBC got a (really out of place) C&D letter. --Crazyswordsman 20:08, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

When the time is right, perhaps. But that time is not right now. — It's dot com 20:11, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
Why can't we know? We have the fact that 1800-555-SBSINGS used to be 1800-BAD-SONG. Why can't we know this one? --Crazyswordsman 21:26, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
I don't think that one was as big a deal as this. --DorianGray 21:31, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
I still think we have the right to know what happened. I can't just pretend something I know happened didn't. All you need to do is tell me exactly what happened, and I'll shut up about this. You can email me the answer privately if you'd like, I just am that curious. Thanks a lot in advance. --Crazyswordsman 22:07, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

About the Unnoficial Quote of the Week thing

I was wondering...could I use it in my userpage? Thanks in advance! -Zephiel 30 March 2007

Oh, sure. 'Course you can. 'S long as you aren't stealing my quotes. =3 There's millions of quotes! Think of your own! *holds his selfishly* But I digress.
Sure you can use it. You don't even need to credit me or anything (after all, it's just a table and a picture--which are mine!). If you'd like to know how to do some XML editing of your own, Venusy has a tutorial on it--that's how I learned, even. In addition, if you'd like to use certain images of mine from past quotes, maybe we can arrange that... But making your own is half the fun! =)
I forget what I was saying, but you can make your own quotes, certainly. Feel free to even steal my section header name. =3 --DorianGray 04:31, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Don't go!

You can't leave! Stay here or else I'll be really sad. And then angry. Grr. —BazookaJoe 09:01, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm totally staying here. I'm just devoting my userpage to being a Bonus Stage mini-shrine from now on. I could find some other site, I suppose, but wiki code is the only code I understand. --DorianGray 09:03, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Don't change it! Change it back or else I'll be really sad! And then angry! Grr! If you are pulling a prank, I'm totally oblivious to it! Fooled, you might say! But don't tell me that. Now I've just confused mehself. —BazookaJoe 09:17, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Removing my post

Thanks for removing my post for no reason except that you thought I should "take it to the forum". Tape Leg's wiki page has a note saying that some think it's the worst episode. I mentioned that perhaps "Rough Copy" was, which would carry a similar note if their was a concensus. You had no reason to remove my post, but hey - if you want to be a jerk about a Homestar Runner wiki TALK page, that's your problem. -- Someguyerson

Such information does belong on the forum, not on the wiki. And please don't be rude to other editors. Thanks. Loafing 23:49, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
Hey there. DorianGray was acting perfectly within policy. Comments on talk pages concerning personal opinions of the toons are routinely removed for exactly the reason Dorian provided — they don't concern the content of the article. Now, tape leg is an exception, because the issue is actually addressed by Strong Bad. So, I understand why you consider your talk page post to be legitimate, but DorianGray actually did the right thing.
Regardless, your personal attacks of DorianGray were completely uncalled for. If you disagree with a user's actions, it is simple to say so in a civil way without insulting them. Please refrain from doing this in the future to avoid having your editing privileges restricted. Trey56 23:49, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
Additionally, the comments on Talk:tape-leg were made several years ago, before policy was more strictly enforced. --DorianGray 03:28, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
