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


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


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


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


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)


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


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)


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


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)


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 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)


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


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

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


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


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)


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


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


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 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


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)



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


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)


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 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


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


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)
