[edit] Welcome!

Welcome to the Homestar Runner Wiki! I wanted to extend a personal welcome, since I believe strongly that a Wiki should be a democratic and non-threatening place where everyone feels like they can contribute. Unfortunately it can be very frustrating at first if you make changes that are ignored or changed back by other users, but if so I encourage you to hang in there; as you get a feel for the way things are done around here you'll feel more at home. That was my experience, anyway!

If you need any help, feel free to ask anyone on the welcoming committee (like me!). You can also post questions on the FAQ talk page.

Here are some tips to get you started:

  • If you need general information, editing tips, or answers to frequently asked questions, check out the help page.
  • Before you do any significant editing, be sure to familiarize yourself with our wiki standards.
  • Read up on the rules and guidelines for your user page. What you're reading right now, by the way, is the "Talk:" page that goes with your user page. It's a good way to communicate directly with specific users. The best way to respond, though, is on the same user page where the conversation was started. E.g. if you have a question, go to my user talk page and edit it, then watch my page (via Recent changes) for a response.
  • If you're not sure what you can do to help out, head over to The Stick.
  • If you're looking for more community interaction, you can also register over at our forum and get More Community Interaction Than You Or Your Grandmother Can Handle!
  • Above all, be bold and have fun!

Feel free to delete this message when you're done reading it. (In general, it's frowned on to delete other people's input on talk pages, but this entry is just here to be helpful. When it's done being helpful, I guarantee you won't hurt my feelings by ditching it!)

[edit] Cool!

Yay, more national origins represented on the wiki! It sounds from some details like you're Filipino American; is that true, or are you living in the Philippines? Do you speak Filipino? I'm curious because I'm a teacher (well, a few months away from being one), and very interested in the educational experiences of people who speak a home language other than, or in addition to, English. —AbdiViklas 11:30, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Advisory

Hey, Ed500: I notice you have some profanity on your userpage. It's important to know that swearing is not tolerated on this Wiki (see this page about the wiki). You may also want to read the HRWiki standards page about editing; I've already had to revert a couple of your edits that weren't according to our standards. I hope this is helpful. Keep on tranglin'! Heimstern Läufer 06:16, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] this is just wrong...

Don't write comments like this, please. Although it's not vandalism, it is still really annoying and serves no point. Someone could mistake it for trolling. — talk Bubsty edits 20:17, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
