Where on Earth did you come up with this spelling of the canteloupe's name? --Jay 13:07, 17 Jan 2005 (MST)

Heh. I was waiting for someone to notice. Glad you asked. Take a look at weeklies.xml. — InterruptorJones[[]] 13:09, 17 Jan 2005 (MST)
Uh... how do you get it to work?? --Jay 13:11, 17 Jan 2005 (MST)
Oh, I'm guessing your browser puked like mine does 'cause of Jonathan's sloppy XML. When you visit the page, go to View > Source. That ought to work. Scroll down toward the bottom and you'll see the official spelling (between "ehsteve" and "oldstrongbad"). — InterruptorJones[[]] 13:14, 17 Jan 2005 (MST)
No, that doesn't work either. But I'll take your word for it. --Jay 13:17, 17 Jan 2005 (MST)
Never mind. Got it to work in a different browser. Interesting. It also lists "1up" (presumably, 20x6 Homestar) and "oldcoachz", who has only been seen in a short cameo. --Jay 13:21, 17 Jan 2005 (MST)
Yeah, I saw the 1up thing, too. According to hearsay, TBC have referred to 20X6 as 1-Up Xtraman (or ExtraMan or Extra Man or something). It would be nice if we could get word from the horse's mouth about his real name. — InterruptorJones[[]] 13:23, 17 Jan 2005 (MST)
"Chapos: here are the character shortcuts"
Hee hee. Chapos. →[[User:FireBird|FireBird]]

Fancy New Signatures

Hey Jordan. Is there a nifty little shortcut code to make your name show up all small like that? Kinda like the for tildes or whatever? -- AgentSeethroo 14:27, 8 Oct 2004 (MST)

Good question. Yes, and it's a feature that Tom came across last week. He's so smart. So, if you go to the Preferences page (at the top next to your username and "my talk") you'll see a "Your nickname (for signatures)" box. Leave it blank and ~~~ will just show your username as you're accustomed to. But you can fill it in with whatever you want.
But there's a bit of a trick to getting it to look like mine. What I have in my box is this:
<nowiki></nowiki>]]<small>&mdash; [[User:InterruptorJones|InterruptorJones]]</small>[[<nowiki></nowiki>
Yes, it's ugly. All that extra stuff is basically there to work around the formatting/linking that the Wiki does automatically. I hope I've been helpful. — InterruptorJones[[]]


Howdy, there, Interruptor jones! I'm Mega-Cheat 2.0, remember me? I was wonderin' if ya'll could help me with my T.R.O.L.L project. It was from the original wiki, but it got baleeted. See ya lorter!

What sort of help are you looking for? — InterruptorJones[[]] 10:01, 21 Dec 2004 (MST)
T.R.O.L.L is pointless. It serves no use at all, except a large list of people who like to hunt down trolls. It really doesn't need to happen. →FireBird

Just like building it. Every time I try to put in on the wiki, my computer freezes up. IT WON'T SAVE!

This is a problem with your computer, and I can't help you with that. Try using a better browser. — InterruptorJones[[]] 09:46, 22 Dec 2004 (MST)


Yeah, Drhaggis and I can't seem to fix the Kobe page problem. Here's the deal: When the pages were first thought up, they were linked to from the characters page as "Kobe#1" and "Kobe#2". Someone came along to those red links and created the page. Of course, this really only created one page called "Kobe", but somehow messed up the database. Special wiki pages treat it weird too. For example, "Special:Uncategorizedpages" displays "Kobe" twice but really link to "Kobe#1" and "Kobe#2" while "Special:Allpages" seems to not have a problem. We've tried deleting and recreating the page, but to no avail. Any ideas? -- Tom 22:12, 5 Feb 2005 (MST)

I have no idea. Maybe ask the MediaWiki folks. That's all I got. — InterruptorJones[[]] 23:59, 5 Feb 2005 (MST)

Cool. Yeah, it's not really a big deal or anything, it was just bothering me. Thanks. -- Tom 00:02, 6 Feb 2005 (MST)

Lime Freeze Pops

Well, I mean, his tongue really -was- green... ;)

I agree, but the way you incorporated it into the article wasn't very good. It may work better as a Fun Fact, for example. In all honesty, that article needs a lot of cleanup, and at this point adding items of trivia to the main body of the article is the reason it's such a mess. However, I appreciate your contribution and I think that the green tongue fact is relevant, it just needs to be added to the article's content in a more orderly fashion.
P.S. Please sign your posts. — InterruptorJones[[]] 22:40, 9 Feb 2005 (MST)


Hey, do you think either of these is worthy of being the logo? --noclip 20:33, 22 Mar 2005 (MST)

I think they're both brilliant and you did a fantastic job. However, the decision isn't mine to make. — InterruptorJones[[]] 22:41, 22 Mar 2005 (MST)
P.S. Homestar in that second one is a leetle bit jaggy.

I think the first one should be the new logopertmywert[[]]
