Quote of the The Week?

Some particular reason you created the "Quote of The Week" (with capital T) page? It's more correct to spell it with a lowercase T, and H*R writes it in all lowercase... --Jay 13:23, 20 Jan 2005 (MST)

The reason I created the redirect was because a couple of friends of mine and I, who visit the Wiki, constantly type in "Quote of The Week" instead of "the week". My friends began complaining about it, so I created the redirect. --Gafaddict 18:36, 20 Jan 2005 (MST)

Want to become "Screenshot Pals"?

Hi there, Gafaddict. I notice that you upload a lot of fine, quality images. Perhaps you could give me a hand over at Minor Teen Girl Squad Characters? At the moment, I'm trying to weed out the improperly used JPEGs and replacing them with PNGs. As for the PNGs that currently exist, some of them are not professionally cropped yet. Maybe you can help me with this project. So... I hope we can join forces, and use our powers for good and for awesome! --The Paper 23:41, 18 Mar 2005 (MST)

Sure, that'd be great. I'll get started tommorow, I have a few things to finish up at the moment. --Gafaddict 23:50, 18 Mar 2005 (MST)

Comma The

Hi there Gafaddict. Just because I'm curious: what were you doing with The House That Gave Sucky Treats and House that Gave Sucky Treats, The? -- Tom 10:15, 19 Mar 2005 (MST)

I made House that Gave Sucky Treats, The because I had made an assumption that the MediaWiki software would show Wiki users the page title "The House that Gave Sucky Treats", but in the Toons category, put it in the "H" column. --Gafaddict 10:23, 19 Mar 2005 (MST)
Gotcha. That clears things up a bit. Thanks. -- Tom 15:09, 19 Mar 2005 (MST)

Blank userpages/IP sigs

Hi there Gafaddict. I know you did a bit of work on blank userpages, but I have removed the content you added to them. User pages are for the user and no one else. If you would like to leave a note for someone on how to create a user page, please use their talk page. Also, the links for IP address's user pages don't need to be removed from talk pages, simply because that's how MediaWiki handles their signatures. I'm sorry about this, because it seems like you worked really hard. Thanks for understanding. -- Tom 16:58, 20 Mar 2005 (MST)

Strong Bad Chirality

Not sure where the left-handed writing takes place in haircut. It appears that SB does all the drawing with his right-hand. Did I miss something? -- tomstiff 18:35, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

That was my mistake. I thought you had added (instead of removed) the fun fact, so I reverted your edit, putting back the fun fact which you had previously removed. --Gafaddict 18:38, 5 May 2005 (UTC)


Hi Gafaddict. On your last edit to the Old Flash Page site, it looks like your computer tried to add a "mouseover link" to the page. You should probably scan your computer for adware/spyware. Aurora the Homestar Coder 17:32, 15 May 2005 (UTC)

Other costumes

Hi. Why did you revert my edits about the other costumes it the character's pages? Have you seen those list and what actualy on the costumes page? I think it's usless to have the same two lists. Further more, each time someone adds a new costume the character's also needs to update. it's just silly and it brakes the Once And Only Once rule. I don't want to start an edit war, but I want your reverts reverted. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 06:00, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I was unaware of the "Other costumes page." However, an empty subsection looks somewhat silly. Wouldn't it be better if you referred to the costumes list through the "See Also" section? —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 16:38, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Good point there about the subsection. I will add other costumes in "see also" in a jiffy. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:03, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)


As a side note, Gafaddict, I want to point out that the edit made to Image:KoT Typing.PNG is not by definition "vandalism", nor is it even "trolling." It's just a user trying to make a humorous image description even funnier. On a related topic, the growing trend at the HRWiki is to make the descriptions on the image pages more encyclopedic. That is, it is generally now established that the image captions on articles should be humorous in nature, while the description in the image's page should be... descriptive. Hooray for learnin' stuff. —BazookaJoe 02:16, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Alright, got that. Thanks! —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 02:19, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)

It's also not necessary to add trolls that have already been blocked to WikiTroll. The list is not treated as a complete log; more like an easy way to grab the admins' attention. But thanks for WikiGnoming all the times. —BazookaJoe 04:16, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

It's okay for him to be logged so that the likely IP is on record. — It's dot com
That's true. Sometimes I like to keep stuff like that on record; other times I'd rather not waste meh thyme. —BazookaJoe 04:21, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Do you think that was really Willy? The M.O. wasn't quite the same. (Sorry for just chatting away on your talk page, Gafaddict.) — It's dot com 04:23, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
No, it's okay. I've never had this big a party here, so I'm all for it. Oh, and BazookaJoe, affirmative. —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 04:26, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Not sure exactly what M.O. stands for, and too tired to figure it out, but I catch what you mean. I don't think it was WoW. It didn't quite follow the pattern. —BazookaJoe 04:25, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Modus operandi. It is used in police work to describe a criminal's characteristic patterns and style of work. — It's dot com


Thanks for telling me. I'm not mad. I was feeling that this idea was stupid like the Mustachioed Homestar Runner Evolution page. Sometimes I can forget that this is an encyclopedia.-Lotionman 19:52, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)Lotionman


Hey, Gafaddict. I'm intrigued - what's the basis for the design of your signature logo? — THE SMOKING MONKEY 11:52, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

I not only would like to know as well, but I would also like to recommend that you re-upload a smaller version. The one you use now takes up more than one line of text, which is frowned upon in these parts. To save you from real trouble in the future, it may help to get it taken care of now. Thanks. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 14:41, 14 October 2005 (UTC)
@Thesmokingmonkey: A (very) small version of the New York State flag (state which I live in). @SHSRTUN: O.K. —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 19:59, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

Anonymous users

Do not call an anonymous user an idiot the way you did in the edit summary. Even if he's the biggest idiot in the world, there's no guarantee that the same person will be paired with a particular IP. It's probably best not to call anybody an idiot, because personal attacks will not be tolerated. If you want to explain your views positively and without harsh words, then that's fine. Thank you. — It's dot com 22:42, 18 October 2005 (UTC)

O.K. —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 15:42, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

Anonymous "facts"

Hey Gafaddict. When an anonymous user posts an absurd fact on a page, you don't have to STUFF it to decline it. You can just delort it. — It's dot com 16:00, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

OK, thanks. I'll remember that for future stuffing. —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 16:00, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

Wait just a darn good minute! If no one was going to give this fact any good arguments against, I was going to accept it myself. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 16:04, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

How do we know what he's doing is Taekwondo? —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 16:06, 19 October 2005 (UTC)
As a logged-in user, E.L., you have every right to put it back. But I can predict right now how it will turn out. — It's dot com 16:08, 19 October 2005 (UTC)
So, do you want me to undelete it? 'Cause I'll do it right here and now. — It's dot com 16:15, 19 October 2005 (UTC)
No. you're both right. I was thinking that the anony user knew what he was talking about. This can't be Taekwondo. the arena is different and also the gear. you can compare it to this picture. Sorry. Carry on, carry on. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 16:21, 19 October 2005 (UTC)


Hi, buddy. I would like to translate your sig and add it to my page with all the other cool-dudes, but I came to one snag: What does Gafaddict means? Does it mean you're addicted to gafs? Is it something else? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 10:06, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

You're correct, it means addicted to gafs. Gaf just comes from a combination of letters I punched into my keyboard at one point. —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 15:21, 23 October 2005 (UTC)
Well, I could translate it as Gaf Addict, but I want the real meaning. If you don't want to tell me, it's OK too, but I will have to translate it phonetically. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 15:37, 23 October 2005 (UTC)
Wait, what do you mean, exactly? There's no real meaning behind "Gafaddict," it just means I'm addicted to gafs — which is a nonsensical letter combination. It's pronounced "Jaf Addict."
Ok, thanks! :) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 15:46, 23 October 2005 (UTC) don't think you could do mine, do you? When broken down, it's Kooky K (Just the letter K) Man. Those sigs are really neat. Thanks! - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)

No problam. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 15:52, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

Strong Mad pic

Do you remember the source of this picture? Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 22:25, 27 October 2005 (UTC)
Ah. I decompiled that O Holy Crap cartoon, took the frame where all the main characters are standing, and deleted everybody except Strong Mad. Then, I converted the thing to a PNG. —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 22:27, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
