Here's to guessworking and translating!

Congrats. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 22:08, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Yay! Thanks. I'll frame it and hang it on my wall for all to see :). Elcool (talk)(contribs) 22:15, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

I dont understand

I don't understand what is wrong with my pic but ill remove it anyway.

Seems it was too large. It's fine now, I believe. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:18, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
... er, it was before you deleted it. Some helpful guy had shrunk it for you. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:19, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
Well, Breadsinger, I think you've got it now. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 22:12, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

labels

this was created in responce to a conversation here. It was talked about a while ago and I decided to try implementing it. It would be used on other pages only on a case by case basis if it was decided to be useful there. Thank you for the concern. Olleicua 16:34, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

See User talk:Olleicua#Template:label and Updates page

hey thanks

Hey thanks for informing me you could have the wiki prompt you about the summary. I didn't know you could do that and it's become real helpful in fighting the uh, disease. The disease I have that has impeded my ability to remember those things. lol.--Image:Stinkwing.gif »Bleed0range« 06:39, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Heh. There's a lot of cool stuff in the preferences pages. Now that we upgraded the software to 1.8 I too need to go over it again and check for new stuff :). Elcool (talk)(contribs) 07:29, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Is the E short for Elliot? User:Fireworks 15:38, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

No, it's short for Elad, as it says so on my user page. What made you think it was for Elliot? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 10:42, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Dude! You work too hard. You've even missed our little party for this. Must intern faster! ;-) Loafing 10:37, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Hurrah! So I missed the little tea-party you probably had on IRC, so what? There will be other things to party about. By this Thursday I'll be free (or free-er) for WikiStuff. If you noticed, I did do some work on the various SBEmail lists for the new email, so I'm not as stressed as I was the week before. In this job I can schedule in what time of day I want to work, so maybe I'll leave wiki-heavy days free in US time rush hours for days like X-dween and some Mondays (We already have a guy in our group who asked Wednesdays off so he can play World of Warcraft...)

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)

Tears Fall

...I guess I don't have a good impression on you anymore. I guess I have a horrible future here... TheYellowDart(t/c)

First of all, let me say that you have some good contribs under your belt, which I already wrote in the edit summary when I put you in. You got removed from the list for several reasons. Please read carefully, as I'm being as straightforward as possible, and please take it as constructive feedback for you so you can be a better editor and user.
You have too many user and user talk namespace contribs, that should be cut down and you should focus on main space with some talk page edits for a while. Leave your user page alone. Don't treat conversations like idle chatter, this is not IRC and people do not wish to know when you "log on" and when you "log off". We have patience to wait for your reply, even if it takes several hours. Also, don't snap on other users, even if you think they snapped on you first, doesn't matter if they are new, experienced or other. Be the bigger user. Take constructive criticism to heart and don't shut yourself from advice by blaming other people. I also noticed that said to be drinking cold ones while editing the wiki. Now, I don't know if you're referring to beer, but please try to edit the wiki only when sober.
Everything I said here was already said to you by other users on your talk page and various other talk pages. You would have stayed on the list, if only I saw you taking some of their advice and apply it instead of shrugging it off. I hope you learn from this, and you may wish to contribute the fine way that you do. :) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 05:25, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Hey, you're right. But i must say this: ROTFLOL! "Contribute when you are sober." ha ha. I don't drink. It's just a joke to play when I say something stupid. I'm a teenager. That would be illegal. Thanks for all of your help and I will learn to be the bigger user. Best wishes, TheYellowDart(t/c)
Well, I'm not implying anything, but some teenagers drink, so I kinda took those statements literally... Thanks for reading all that, and most importantly - Have fun wikiing! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 05:26, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

thanks

Hey there Elcoolio, thanks for setting my welcome page straight I R F 15:47, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi man, no probalo. I was just fixing that image everywhere (most of it was on talk pages you welcomed :P) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:14, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Sounds like a job for...

GrapeNuts! --Stux 00:51, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Nevermind. --Stux 00:55, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
The only thing that's left is your subpage, but I couldn't find where the link to the image is. Can you help? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 05:19, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
done! I R F 06:19, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
I had actually searched for them after I typed "nevermind", and they weren't there. The were inside {{tick}}. I realized they must be caused by cached information not being updated quick enough to show the actual link information, thus making it hard to properly assess which files were still linked directly. The images for {{done}} and {{todo}} have similar problems. Dunno if the same has been done for them. If it was up to me, I'd call it a bug! :) --Stux 07:58, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Wow! That's sooo cool of you!

Hi Elcool! I just checked out your user page, and saw my user name under "New Users I Like To Watch"! That made me really happy, especially since I'm up there with such users as Shwoo and The Joe, (both users who have made a great impression on me too)! So thanks for that!

I'd also like to thank you for a different reason. When I first started editing on the wiki, I actually sent you an (embarrassing) email concerning an editing issue I had had. Well, you emailed me back, giving me tons of useful info about how to properly interact on the wiki talk pages! So thanks for that too! Okay, see ya 'round the wiki! kai lyn 23:08, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

I'm very glad you noticed. That new list of users are for ones that's been here for less then 4 months and have less then 1000 contribs and still great editors in my opinion. Those who did major namespace contribs, had good and civil opinions on talk pages, helped other users in need and that are truly trying to be a better user for the sole propose of being a better user.
I remember your emails and I still keep them. I'm happy they got put into good use since I spent a good deal of time writing them. Have a good day, Elcool (talk)(contribs) 05:18, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Israel

So, what's it like in Israel? On the news in the USA, all we here is bombings, but there is obviously more to Israel than that. --Zerlock1124

Thanks for taking interest in my country, dude. There is much more to Israel then what you see on the news. As a matter of fact all the news does it distort the truth so it looks like the whole country is being bombarded, which is simply not true. We did had that war in the north two months ago, and one town is being fired at in the south, but it doesn't affect the day-to-day life of the rest 98% of the country.
Beyond what you see in the news, we have a wonderful country, that's have almost every landscape but smaller (as we are small. About the size of New Jersey) - Forests, mountains, a snowy peak, a beautiful sea-shore, a coral reef (the most north in the world), lakes (including the lowest and only in the world - the Dead Sea!), a desert, small towns (like the various Kibbutzim), skyscraper cities, ancient cities, holy places... I don't think there's a single place our size in the whole world that have them all in a driving distance.
When we took our country from the British, most of were scattered all over the world. When we all immigrated (a process which is still going) there was a kind of a culture clash that gave us one unique culture of food, music, language, traditions and lifestyle.
If you'd like, I can explain more, as you see I'm very patriotic and love this place I call Israel. :) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:31, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
I'm very curious about the Dead Sea. How big is it and what's it like? --Dacheatbot · Communicate 23:22, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

"WA" Y WIKI??? WOW!!!!!

Well, hey, Elcool. I noticed you're a member of the Weird Al Wiki, and I am extremely excited. I always knew that there'd be other Al-oholics out there. (No, that's NOT a beer joke, it's what we fans call ourselves.) Set up a post on my talk page an we'll talk Al and H*R, OK? -WeirdAl (talk · 21:00, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

These Personal Images Will Self-Destruct...

Hey, E.L. Cool. Since we're both online together, I'd thought I'll ask you something. Do you still need these two images anymore:

Seeing as the first has been replaced and the second is not in use, I'd thought I'd help clear up the Wiki a little bit by possibly setting them up for deletion. If you still want to hold onto them, let me know and no futher action will be taken. Otherwise, I don't think there's any need to keep them. Cheerio, – The Chort 19:06, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

I don't see any compelling reason to delete those. — It's dot com 19:14, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
About abandoned images: Our way of action so far have not to delete them, unless by the request of the user they used to belong to. Several months ago Me and Thunderbird cleaned the abandoned images of several inactive users, but I don't think that's going to happen again in the near future, unless some server problem is going to threaten us.
About unused old menus: Like the Toons Menu image, the TGS Menu image should also be updated in the same file name. I was wrong back then to upload it in a different name, so I want to check with the other sysops if we can delete it and what affect it will have on the page's history. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 19:16, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
I understand. It's just that some people remove personal images from their user pages and then forget about them completely. I just thought I could help by asking any active users if they want to keep them. If they don't want them deleted, that's fine. And I understand there's isn't a severe server problem that means we can't store unused personal images. I just wanted to help the wiki. Nevermind the bullocks, – The Chort 19:23, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Archiving Delight

Hey E.L.Cool! What's up? I just wanted to let you know that you missed an archive linking there. That's all. So keep an eye on these things. Later! --Stux 15:45, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks man. I guess I missed it because all of the open tabs I had at the moment. I looked for the best way to archive and started with Talk:Main Page-style one, but I found we only used it for HRWiki talks, so I started again with the Talk:Strong Bad Email template you see now. So my tabs were kind of a mess, as you could see. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 15:48, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
Ah! Makes sense. I figured it was because it was the first archive for that page. I don't think that the Main Page Talk's archive style is used anywhere else (It might be kinda nice to see it a bit more though). Most archives I know follow somethink like the SBEmail Templates. --Stux 15:59, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Hey, ELcool, nice to hear from you. No, I'm not Israeli, I'm from NY. I lived in Jerusalem last year (in the Ir Ha'Atikah!) while I was in yeshiva. Yes, I speak hebrew. much love, TheDude 01:49, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

That's pretty cool. I kinda speculated that you're not a localman, but probably a student/yeshiva guy. Did you ever get to visit the Tel-Aviv area? How well do you know Hebrew? You could help translating subtitles :) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 07:24, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

E.L. Cool/templates

I figured you might like to be informed of this: your template page contains 40 HTML errors. This is because HTML does not support calling an ID more than once to utilize CSS. The simple fix to this problem is to change all id="navbox" lines to class="navbox".· · T2|Things 18:02, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Hebrew preferences image

Hey, E.L. — I made a version of the preferences image with Hebrew letters here for User:E.L. Cool/Welcome/he. Let me know if I should change anything! Trey56 23:02, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

It looks perfect! But... You made a mistake. The forth letter is Talet (ד). You used Resh (ר). I know they are similar looking and why you were confused. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 00:17, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
Aha, I'll fix it straightaway... I tried to double-check everything, but I guess one slipped through. Trey56 00:20, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
Okay, I think it should be fixed now. Trey56 00:24, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Templates

Hey Cool! Thought I'd drop by to thank you for making Category:STUFF Templates. (I just noticed your flood of edits because I just woke up. Who eats breakfast these days anyway?) I'll make sure to give you credit on my userpage. But as a few final requests, the {{funfacts2}} template still bothers me, since we don't use it. That, and the {{checkstuffpage}} also belongs under STUFF Templates, but it was categorized before I suggested the new category. Thanks again! — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 12:11, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi man. I kinda did it without knowing you already categorized a million templates. I just went over the new special pages and looked for stuff to do. Now that I've looked at you contributions, you did an awesome job there with all the other templates! I don't know about funfacts2, but it's part of the wiki history, so we keep it.

Enjoy your day. I am older than you. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 10:16, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Just a couple more eons, and I'll be almost half your age, grandpa! ;) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 19:25, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Let n be the number of years in an eon, and assuming that in two eons E.L. Cool will be exactly half Qermaq's age, we have:
20+2n=\frac{1}{2}\times(Q+2n)
Solving for Q we get:
2\times(20+2n)=Q+2n
40 + 4n = Q + 2n
Q = 40 + 2n
In geological terms, Q would be, on average: Q=40+2\times550,000,000=1,100,000,040. However, if we take the sidereal definition of an eon: Q=40+2\times1,000,000,000=2,000,000,040 (years). QED. The definitions of some variables and values are left for the reader to determine. --Stux 21:26, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

I think you reverted your "pirate talk" too far - it went back to the last edit not made by you, which was over two years ago. In fact, your user page now says that you're nineteen years old again. I'm guessing that this was not deliberate. --Jay (Talk) 08:43, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
