OK. Also, since I already made this one section on your user talkpage, I might as well ask another question that came to mind.

Unless you have über-1337 haxx0r access like our friend It's dot com here, the only way you're going to be doing anything to the wiki is with normal page loads, i.e. exactly as if you were editing it by hand, just automated. (more) (11 April 2006)

In regards to Freshley's, I know it's an apostrophe; I have no idea what I was thinking when I made the edit. (more) (12 October 2005)
Regarding the Article of the Day
Thanks for the image revert. I probably should have discussed the choice of image earlier, but hindsight is 50/50. (more) (19 October 2005)
2D Boombox

sig help
Can my signature have Easter eggs in it? (more) (16 January 2006)
That image
Just so you know, the reason I restored that image is just because there was support expressed for it and I felt that the person who removed it was acting rather unilaterally. (more) (25 January 2006)
What did you do
I would just like to make a counterpoint to hating guestbooks, even though the discussion is over. (more) (29 January 2006)
Sorry about re-making those User_talk:Drwho? pages. (more) (31 January 2006)
I understand why you think that the Babel towers will be better with the source code rather than the templates, but I really think that templates will make it a lot easier to use and more user friendly. (more) (7 February 2006)

Can you explain why you didn't you think my "Grizzly chomps" fun fact in the Candy Product was a good one? (more) (22 March 2006)
Dangeresque change
I'm the guy that changed the Dangeresque character page to note that dangeresque's glasses somehow stay on his head despite his total lack of ears. You changed it back, saying "(that's true, but it's not really very notable)". (more) (13 April 2006)
Just a little hello
P.S. Just out of curiosity, why did you revert my edits on the HR Wiki article on wikipedia? (more) (16 April 2006)

I really liked your take on it, making it "informational" on how to create one. (more) (10 October 2007)

Hey, I was just wondering why you blocked the anonny, when he'd only made three edits? Yes, he plugged the Sandbox with nonsensical links, but couldn't you have talked to him and asked him to stop it? I'm not sure if you did talk to him or not. If you didn't though, then 1 week was probably a little harsh. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 20:17, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Meh, maybe you're right. I was going primarily from this edit, and I thought that the anonny had been reverted three times and was being persistent with adding those links. I'll unblock for now. — It's dot com 20:44, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Whoops! Sorry if there was a misunderstanding. I was just fooling around and deleting some spam from the sandbox. The anonny wasn't spamming any other pages than the sandbox. Super Turtle Talk 21:51, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
No need to fear, Turtle, you acted correctly. Dotty just got a little carried away—which he rarely does, I might add, he does a bang-up job here and I'm personally proud of what he's accomplished—and made a premature judgement in absence of the facts. He fixed it, and all is well now, all is safe and sound. Sleep peacefully. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:10, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Dotty? Augh! Bleh! Ewww! Grugh! {suddenly sotto voce} No. Thanks as always to Qermaq for putting a bow on what was pretty much already wrapped up. ;) (Although I would recommend in the future not yelling in summaries if one is not trying to attract attention. But yeah, no big deal now.) — It's dot com 13:31, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Admit it, you kinda love it when I call you Dotty. ;) Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 23:41, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Personally, I think Dot Com should be quoting Dot Warner right about now: "Call me, Dotty and you die." wbwolf (t | ed) 00:30, 7 June 2008 (UTC)
"Yeah, you're probably right." Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 07:46, 7 June 2008 (UTC)
As long as this thread has gone completely off topic, I think I should mention that I always choose the names Yakko, Wakko, and Dot for the computer players when playing Hearts. — It's dot com 16:56, 9 June 2008 (UTC)


Okay, I know you have a fanstuff talk page. But this is serious. Joshua, the sysop, did something like blackmail. Now the forum is messed up and Super Sam blocked him. Can you please fix this mess? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 14:47, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

I do believe that what is occurring is simply playful banter which Sam here has taken a bit too seriously. Everything is fine. Nothing is ruined. - Super Sam 05:37, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Edit conflict: Lies. All lies! Clearly I'm the only one who knows how it all went down. Joshua randomly bans Super Sam on the forum and then Super Sam screws around with the forum skin for revenge. Also I think Supra tried to block Joshua on the wiki but Joshua just unblocked himself. Just a spot of fun, no need to get all grumpy about it. I think it's pretty dang hilarious the way it's going down. --Shadow Scythe 05:39, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for stopping by, you guys. Thanks for breaking my cow lamp. — It's dot com 17:11, 9 June 2008 (UTC)


Whoa, this is pretty awesome... great jorb! Trey56 13:13, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! I installed the feature back during the last upgrade (because the fanstuff kept pestering me to) but hadn't found a good use for it here at the knowledge base until now. — It's dot com 14:29, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

If you notice anything strange...

This may just be me being paranoid, but I just thought I'd let you know that MySpace told me I got phished and... I kinda had this thing going where I used the same password for everything... including my email, in which I saved an email to myself detailing how to log in to my account on this website...

So, if anybody does anything funny under my account, I just thought I should let someone with special authorities and privileges and whatnot know about it (although I have since changed my password). I might start a new account just in case, but I'm not sure yet how that'll work out.

Anyway... now you know. ~That Guy Over There (User talk:That Guy Over There) 18:10, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Don't start a new account. Changing your password should be adequate. By the way, to add a section to a talk page, just click the little plus (+) next to the edit button. It will give you a place to enter the thread header and format it automatically. — It's dot com 18:14, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Jolly good. ~That Guy Over There (User talk:That Guy Over There) 18:18, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Just the same, I think I'd like my username changed. (I've been thinking of ditching LuxAcerbus for a while now.) Sysops can do that, right? ~That Guy Over There (User talk:That Guy Over There) 19:03, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Bureaucrats can, yes. See HRWiki:Changing username. — It's dot com 19:15, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for the help, my good man. ~That Guy Over There (User talk:That Guy Over There) 23:57, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Forum Redirect

Since the HRWiki forum is down, alot of the regular users have taken refuge to . However, pretty much the only way for people on the forum to communicate to each other now is by email. Since barely anyone shows their email address, the last resort option is to communicate by editing your sig. Even then, most people don't go looking through a locked forum looking at people's sigs(which is where I found the link). The result: Only the regular users found link. So, I figured that it would be best if you posted some sort of link on the front page of the Wiki or something so people can find it. -strongfan

Fanstuff Purge: Wiki User Emails

There are currently a few Wiki User Emails on the list of fanstuffs to be saved, and it's been decided that this would be a great chance to get them over to the Wiki User Wiki. My question is whether it would be easier to use whatever fancy method you're using to transfer them across or whether it would be easier to just do it manually.
Cheers, Super Sam 19:39, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

I don't know if this is the specific fancy way that DC's going to use, but if you want to transfer stuff, then the easy way is to go to HRFWiki:Special:Export, and put in all the page-names (one per line), and mash go. That'll give you an XML file that you can feed into Special:Import on WUW (you'll need to be sysop to use Special:Import, but Special:Export can usually be run by anyone). As well as being able to copy lots of pages in one hit, you can also (if you want) include each page's history, and all the templates they use. --phlip TC 22:47, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
Yep, I concur with Phlip's suggestion. — It's dot com 18:45, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
Alrighty, thanks for that. - Super Sam 14:53, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you

Looking at this, it appears a lot of the forum users have been giving you grief over the locked forum. I just would like to pause for a moment and say thank you. You have dealt with this matter professionally, and I would like to say that in your shoes, I would have done the same thing. Thank you for managing this problem well. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 01:22, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments. It remains to be seen whether splitting off the off-topic discussion from the H*R threads will be a good thing, but I'm hoping for the best. — It's dot com 19:35, 12 August 2008 (UTC)


Hi. I'm having trouble on my userpage. I have three images. I'd like to have one image (Homsar) in the center between the other two of the Cheat Commando's. How can I do this? See my userpage in my signature. -- 17:51, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Fanstuff wiki

Look, for some reson, my computer doesn't show the link. so can you help me out? 10:25, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

The address is, same as it's ever been. — It's dot com 14:10, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Ummm... there's no more bar there. it completed. But nothing happened. It's just... the signup screen.
Also, I sent the email, but I didn't get a reply. TheThin 12:52, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Actually, you sent two emails. I only said you'd get a reply if it was necessary, and in your case it's not. The status bars only indicate that a certain step is done out of many. You'll know that the wiki is back up when it looks like a MediaWiki wiki. — It's dot com 19:46, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
Okay, also, can you not do the purge in the next 3 hours? I have to go somewhere. TheThin 21:27, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
Deal. Before I do it, I'll be sure to ask you if it's okay. — It's dot com 21:30, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

I already sent you my email. Should I post my new username on HRWiki:Changing username, or just wait? - The good...X On Fire (SSX)...And the good again. 00:56, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Sending the email is enough. I'll change usernames based on that. — It's dot com 02:13, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

So when will the new wiki be up?--‪‪‪X66x6615px-X66x66.png 18:54, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

When will the updates bar be back? -TheStick

Could you put the MediaWiki software on the fanstuff wiki and remove the signup page? Dagoth

Hey, Dot com, it has been like 3 weeks now. What gives? -AlmsforthePudgy 19:44, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Seriously, you guys. Stop pestering Dot com. He's doing his best, and he's working very hard for you. Yes, for you. Give him some credit. It's dot com is spending hours and hours (literally) of his spare time fixing the fanstuff wiki for you, and the last thing he needs (I'm sure of it) is someone poking him with a stick continuously, asking if he's done yet. So sit back and relax, give him some space, and when he's finally done, thank him very much for it. Loafing 13:05, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Okay, so, how long has it been now? A month? Two? TheThin 01:31, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Name Change

Could you change my user name to Raiku? Its going to be my last username ever. I am going to keep it. Raiku

Name Change, Too

I meant to name myself hremail24, not Hremail 22. Can you fix this malfunction, private?

You know, this is kind of like calling up a librarian at home asking them to renew a book for you. There are better ways.  Green Helmet 14:17, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Ops in #hrwiki-fanstuff

I hate to whine and complain like this, but please give someone ops in #hrwiki-fanstuff. It is impossible to control the channel. It doesn't have to be a fanstuff sysop, just someone easily accessible. Bluebry 17:42, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Hey man, we seem to have a few trolls in #hrwiki-fanstuff, Tom's not responding, you're not on, and we really need ops, so whenever you see this, please give someone ops. Bluebry 00:49, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Change Username

Uh, Dot Com, some people here have been hanging for months with no one changing their user name. Could you get those people up to date for me? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 18:33, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Please, Dot Com? I'm desperate.. Please... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:14, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Please? I'm sorry for bothering you... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:23, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Holy crap, dude. Why are you editing my talk page over and over? See Green Helmet's remarks a couple of threads up. Besides, you're already on (at least) your second username. I'm not really planning on changing it. — It's dot com 21:33, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
How do you know that? I haven't ever actually changed my user name... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:39, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Of course you have. This is you. — It's dot com 21:41, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm sorry. Very sorry. I admit it, MichaelXX2 is a sockpuppet. But when I signed up, I took a vow to change my ways about vandalism. I haven't done any vandalism for months, and I'm sorry for bothering you. I won't ever change my username again, please bail me out this one time... I will fully understand if you don't want to though. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:46, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Can you do me a fanstuff-related favor?

I need some files from the old HRFWiki, and I was wondering if you might be able to get them. It's okay if you can't do this, or don't want to, though, it would just make some things easier if you would.--KirbychuHR'D 02:23, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Fanstuff wiki

Would you happen to know when the purge will be over? Just wonder. ¡ÉlGavino! 01:01, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Oh, I do wonder, let me tell you. If I had to guess based on the (depending on your point of view) clever or smart-aleck front page currently at, I'd say sometime before or after TBC release Stinkoman Level 10. — It's dot com 01:25, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

thanks man.

What was that crap-for-brains doing? Being a freakin' vandal and everything? I owe it all to ya for helping my user page stay cool. Did you block him? --The 386 My talk 20:06, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

No prob, Bob. That guy shows up from time to time to do what he did. It doesn't usually take long to clean up. Yes, I did block him. — It's dot com 20:12, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Transcribing Permission

Sorry to interrupt, but I was just wondering if I could transcribe the toons at the Weeblpedia similar to the way we transcribe toons here. JCM 02:56, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Uh, yes? I don't really have any jurisdiction to give you permission. Our style is nothing special, and I suppose it could be used for any number of things. It may or may not be relevant, but some authors of works of fiction don't like their works being transcribed, so watch out for that. — It's dot com 05:19, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
OK, thanks. JCM 22:34, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Personal image templates

It's Dot Com, Your the admin I trust the most, and the only one I know actually. This page is in desperate need of an admin to look over the new suggested designs of the personal image templates, and to add to the talk page if you agree that we should/can change the personal image templates to the HR related ones, or not. Please do look into this. Thanks! —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 17:07, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

That discussion is over two years old. As I said when it was current, I don't think we should change the templates, especially given I'm the one who made the versions we're using now. — It's dot com 03:35, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Who's online

You guys need "WhosOnline", a special that can tell you whos online and what they are looking at. Can be used to quickly see when there is going to be spam. Elementio 18:58, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

From my old fanstuff talk page:

Check this out It's the recent changes page of The Mario Wiki. I made an account there, and I realized on the recent changes page, there's a little section for who's currently logged in. I figured I'd ask you if we could possibly make this a feature here. It would make things alot easier when trying to contact users and such. --TheDenzelTheDenzelsiglogo.gif 18:11, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
[...] This would indeed be interesting, but people shouldn't have their identities exposed just because they're browsing. Part of what a lot of people like about reading a wiki is that you're not publicly logged unless you edit. And there's the thing: one should be able to tell who's online well enough just by looking at the recent changes. — It's dot com 04:25, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Or do you mean something that only sysops and/or developers could see? If so, we already have enough behind-the-scenes access to handle our relatively minor spam load. Thanks though. — It's dot com 19:50, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

I mean that only registered users can see, and from my knowledge of it, noone EVER uses it but me, for some reason on the other wikis I go on. It would just help alot. Elementio 19:55, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Well, like I said last year, I don't think that information should be available to just anyone who happens to have an account. There's almost no reason (if any) to look over someone's shoulder if they're merely reading articles. — It's dot com 20:03, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
However, it can help if they are about to troll. Elementio 20:04, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
It would be nearly impossible to tell whether someone was about to vandalize based solely on what they're looking at. Even if it were possible, the vigilance required to make the extension effective would be prohibitively time-consuming. Considering the low volume of bad-faith edits we have to deal with and how easy it is to clean up pages after the fact, we simply don't have the need for an early-warning system. — It's dot com 20:18, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Hey, something to bring your attention to

Adventure Classic Gaming recently had an interview with the Brothers Chaps and the designers of their episodic adventure game series at TellTale, not sure how you usually feature new content related to the brothers chaps but figured you might not have seen it yet, it isn't on the interviews page at least: [1] -MarkN

It's actually on the SBCG4AP page, under Promotional Media. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 23:43, 28 December 2008 (UTC)


Thank you for deleting my fair-use-defying MacOrWinFinal.png image, Dot Com! — fuchsiania 18:31, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Sensitive to Bees

Thanks so much for agreeeing with my statements, It's dot com! I knew someone would believe me if I posted the edit there! The second video was just my proof to make sure there wouldn't be that much of a conflict, but if that's what made you believe me, I'm glad I made it! So thanks again!


P.S. Speaking of which, why did you think I went overboard trying to prove my point with the video?

I wouldn't say so. People have gone crazy before proving their point. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 06:12, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Maybe so, but if you look on the talk page for the article in question, you'll see that It's Dot Com himself said I surpassed him in levels of proving my point. -MarioMaster2008
The above link to that template talk page has nothing to do with what I'm talking about. I'm referring to people posting evidence they gather to try and answer a question of fact regarding something in one of the toons. I'm not saying I don't go overboard (my illustrations on Homestar's spinning buzzer are just the latest example), but I think making a whole YouTube video trumps anything I've done. So far. By the way, MarioMaster, to sign your name, just type four tildes, like this: ~~~~, and the system will automatically insert your name and a timestamp, like this: It's dot com 16:10, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh, okay. I was wondering how to do that. Let's try it now. MarioMaster2008 17:48, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

History category

Sorry, I didn't know we had a place to keep stuff around for historical reasons. - 21:51, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, if something was widely used in the past, but isn't anymore, then we put it in the history category rather than delete it completely. — It's dot com 23:21, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Redirect pages

Hi there It's Dot Com, hope you don't mind me asking something. I was trying to create a redirect from Coach Z's 110 percent to Coach Z's 110%, but it doesn't work as an actual redirect. How do you create a redirect page, and how is it different from a normal one? Thanks! —Guard Duck talk 01:02, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Note, it won't act like a redirect in the preview, you have to save it. And the syntax is "#REDIRECT [[Pagename]]". And this is probably the wrong place to ask this kind of question. — Defender1031*Talk 01:05, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh, so that's what happened, I only saw it in the preview. Sorry for bothering you, is there a better place for questions like that? —Guard Duck talk 01:08, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
You can ask me on my talk page, i don't get annoyed by technical questions, but the best place is probably the talk for one of the help pages or something... — Defender1031*Talk 01:11, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
HRWiki talk:FAQ is actually the place we've set aside for questions. If a discussion needs to be on a more specific page, it can be referred to the other page from there. And it is true that a question on any central or highly visible public talk page will likely be answered. Similarly, while I'm not encouraging you to post on any one user's talk page, you could do worse than this one. It's watched by a good number of users, and I have a whole section of the page devoted to technical issues. — It's dot com 02:58, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Blanking the sandbox


Hey, um, are you trying to make fun of me? That userbox, Um, NOT FREAKIN FUNNY! If you need to tell me something, tell me in my Talk page.--Record307

Strictly speaking, yes, I am making fun, but I'm not trying to be mean. I just think it's funny that you've blanked the sandbox once a day every day for the past 11 days (except the 9th (when you did it twice) and the 15th (which you missed)). I myself blank the sandbox on occasion, but not like clockwork. Generally speaking, having a blank or non-blank sandbox makes no difference, and so I find it interesting that you've kept it up. But I'm just teasing, not trying to be offensive. :) (By the way, if it's not obvious, the icon there is a blank sandbox.) Cheers. — It's dot com 01:42, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh, sorry. Y'know what? I'm gonna use the userbox you made. Can you do me a favor? My userboxes scroll But they mess up my page. I want it to blend in with the pictures on my userpage. Can you do that for me? Thanks!---Record307

I adjusted the width of your email box. Did that fix what you were talking about? Oh, by the way, to sign your name, just type four tildes, like this: ~~~~, and the system will automatically insert your name and a timestamp, like this: It's dot com 14:03, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks so much! See ya round!Record307 15:26, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Hey It's dot com, how's it hanging?

I've been good, nearly done hiugh school, which leaves me to my first question:

I'll be leaving Homestar Runner wiki, temporarily, for school reasons. Anyhow, can someone you tell me where i can find a banner template to place on my wikipage saying I'll be off wiki for a while?

Thanks a bunch.

Nikolce Kocovski 07:59, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Wow, Nikolce, long time no hear from. We don't really have a template for that kind of thing, but you can make a banner by taking some code from one of our other templates and putting it on your page. Then you can update the message to suit whatever you need it to say. I'm curious how long a while is (your last edit was last April, which is what I'd consider a while). — It's dot com 11:42, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Whoa, April, man school's been taking my time man. As well as school, sometimes my internets gets capped, meaning it becomes slow, and when it comes to wikis, they don;t load up.

Thanks for the help again.

Nikolce Kocovski 12:33, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

MediaWiki 1.14

According to the Wikitech mailing list, MediaWiki 1.14 has been released (link). Just notifying you. :) The Goblin!! 20:03, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. We're on the MediaWiki announce list, so we already knew that. Based on something Tim said, we may have even been responsible for prodding them into releasing the final version after the release candidate. — It's dot com 20:35, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for Your Assistance

Thanks for your assistance in the most recent vandal attack. Been a while since the last one, eh? Well, we all appreciate your ability to hide those edits from RC, as no one wants to read that. Also, good job getting the one everyone else overlooked--myself included. We really couldn't keep this place going without you. --DorianGray 03:41, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the thanks, and you're welcome! I'm glad I could chip in with those things that only developers can do. — It's dot com 03:46, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

I'm confused...

Hey Its Dot Com, can you tell me what happened to the fanstuff? I left a long time ago but when I tried to come back everything was different.

Invisible arms

When you said it was NOT better... I'm not gonna lie to you. It IS better. PLEASE, don't block me! --The 386 My talk 00:29, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Block you? You're wrong though. We consistently treat scenes as though the characters have normal arms and/or fingers (regardless of what's "really" the case) and are directly manipulating objects. In other words, we say that Homestar is picking up an object (and don't worry about how), not that it mysteriously starts floating. — It's dot com 00:37, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
I just DON'T want my edits reverted. The INVISIBLE arms show that these objects float in mid-air. I don't mean to sound rude. --The 386 My talk 00:31, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, but that's not our standard. We know that the objects appear to be floating, but that's not how we describe them. — It's dot com 00:37, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

When will the fanstuff wiki be back?

Hey Dot Com, when will the fanstuff wiki be back? Raiku 04:34, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Unfortunately, the fanstuff was a significant drain on our resources, and with funds being so tight we just can't justify it anymore. I'm afraid it will never be back. Sorry. — It's dot com 04:41, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

My new email address

I recently got a Gmail account. Now my new email address is So, could you change my email address on the forum to that. PS:If anyone emails me, I will send Barney to attack you. Coach 's Cool! 12:15, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

I will only change your forum address to whatever's in your preferences here on the wiki, and the address above (at least, what it was before) isn't it. If you don't want people to email you, don't post it here. — It's dot com 14:24, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
Oh, yeah. I forgot to do about that. I changed it. Coach 's Cool! 14:33, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Free Country Mountain Range files

Not to be naggy but I'm kinda wondering what's going on with ny Free Country Mountain Range files, because you said you'd put it on your to-do list about 5 months ago.--KirbychuHR'D 02:50, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Yup, exactly 199 days ago. I put it on my to-do list. It's still there. — It's dot com 03:08, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
That's one big to-do list.--KirbychuHR'D 03:12, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

What the pfargtl?

This is the edit summary from Recent Changes for one of your recent edits:

But in the recent changes IRC it looked like:

<+HRWikiRC> Talk:Main Page [2] * It's dot com * (-673) feel free to discuss that somewhere else (off-site)

The link provided by the RC bot goes to the same diff provided on the RC page. What the pfargtl is going on? --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 23:25, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Possible Trolls/Vandals

Hello, sorry if this is in the wrong place, I didn't know where to put it.

On the recent changes page, there seems to be a large number of accounts being made. normally if it was 1 or 2 I wouldn't notice, but there's been 8 in the last 5 minutes. I think it might be a troll or vandal. BubbleRevolution 01:11, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes, this is the wrong place to put this, but these accounts are all being made by the same person, because they all are common names (all having something to do with the Eragon series, I have read the books), except maybe User:Sbe-Mail Checker Dan, he's probably a coincidence. Also, you probably shouldn't use the word TROLL or VANDAL yet, since the user(s) haven't made any edits yet, and might not know about the sockpuppet rule. Can someone go talk to him/her? I'm not sure how to do this. free 01:17, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Would like Autocolumn extension for my own wiki

Hello Homestar, i would like to implement the Autocolumn and AutoPipe/AutoRedirect extensions on my own wiki, are these available? --Kevin danko 16:09, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

The Fanstuff Wiki!

How long has it been now? If your not going to do anything with it, just delete it and it's all over with. It gets my hopes up every time I go there and while it's loading the title says "Main Page" TheThin 01:15, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

My Weight in Pencil Shavings

How much does a page on the wiki usually cost? Espemon333 22:36, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Um, I don't know what that means... And you still smell like pea soooup! By the way, the reason you triple post is that my page is long and so it takes a bit of time to load and you get impatient and hit "Save page" three times. Only hit it once. It heard you the first time. — It's dot com 22:53, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
The reason we are having the fundraiser... the pages cost money... right..? Espemon333 23:34, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
In a sense, yes, I guess. The pages are stored in a database, which is located on a hard drive, which is part of a server, and it takes money for us to be hosted on that server. See our donations and ledger pages if you want specific information. — It's dot com 23:48, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

A Probably Bad Good Idea

We all know about the decomisionning of STUFF, which I do support, but I reviewed your new version of the STUFF template and I loved it. I think we need to incorperate that template INTO the talk page. It looked great, and I liked how it condenses the entire discussion into the smallest portions. I really think we should get it into the talk page. Espemon333 03:09, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

The "new" version of the STUFF template is what we used for years, and what we decommissioned. We decided to stop using the STUFF format in favor of regular discussions. We don't have any plans to reincorporate it at this time. — It's dot com 03:35, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Another Fanstuff Thing

I don't mean to kill the already several dead horses about this topic, but I don't think the sysops are going to fix the Fanstuff Wiki. I know you have a life, n'stuff, but we want some stuff done. I don't care if you do half a page a day. Any progress is good progress. And if your schedule doesn't allow for any Fan-Wiki work, then get people that will accualy work. The regular people word be WAY more willing, and more faster, to fix these unfinished pages. In short, I hope you take some time to work on the Fan-Wiki, get better workers, and always, ALWAYS edit blank pages. User:Anonomous

Possible spammer

Don't know if this is the right place to say this, please correct me if not.

Why do you still do this?

Why do you still do this? You're managing the same website you did three years ago, and still for no reason. You're thirty three years old! You don't think that maybe it's time to start a family? To take care of your wife or something? Take a page from me and stop going here. The "friends" you make won't miss you, they'll just drown their sorrows in computer code. Please, just stop this whole thing.

It's a hobby and I like it. In the last five (not three) years I've learned a lot of things about teamwork, management, critical thinking, and software development. Things I can carry over into my professional life. Plus it's fun, interesting, and challenging, I still think Homestar Runner is funny, and there's nothing what says you can't have a hobby and still pursue other things like work and family. By the way, if you're going to break your streak of not "going here" just to insult me, at least have the stones to sign your real name. — It's dot com 21:04, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the purge!

Hi Dot Com. I was just passing by to tell you that I, for one, am most delighted about how the purge took over 500 days. Without the purge, I'd still be dwelling on the Fanstuff Wiki with not much else to do, but since its absence, I've pursued other hobbies and personal projects, which most probably wouldn't have happened if the Fanstuff Wiki was still around. For example, since it went down with the purge, I've started to learn more about programming and website creation, not to mention polishing up my English skills and discovering my humble abilities as an amateur musician. That's really all I have to say. And again, thank you. No this contains no sarcasm whatsoever. -20eric06 02:07, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Duplicate user problem

Hey. Looking at the history of this guy, it seems him and User:Homsar Jean are one and the same. Since this is not a sockpuppet problem, what do you think should be done? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 04:20, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Probably nothing. He seems to have made one account and used it only briefly before switching to a new one. Yes, it would be better to have asked for a name change instead, but what's done is done. Used to I might merge the accounts, but it's a bit of a hassle and I don't think I'll bother unless he specifically requests it. As long as he doesn't use both accounts, it's not a big deal. — It's dot com 05:14, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Could you help with my account?

Sorry to bug you! During the Fanstuff purge I asked to change my username from Chituze to Happy: now it says I've got the wrong password, and I don't receive the verification email. I'm absolutely positive I've been typing the password right, because I use the same one everywhere. Are you able to find my password for me, or maybe allocate happypants3@hotmail to the account? Thanks so much in advance!
Also I'm so scared about how professional your talk page is, I hope I've put this in the right place. -

Well, that's a bit of bad luck, I'm afraid. The reason the password won't work is that someone else already has the name Happy. (The fanstuff and the knowledge base now share the same user list, and the Happy account was created here back in 2004.) You'll need to create a new account with a different name. You can choose Chituze or HappyPants or something else. — It's dot com 15:25, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
OH, RIGHT. Dang, somehow that never crossed my mind. Now I feel bad because I've sent about 4 verification emails to them.
(Ack, what if during the purge I got an email about this, but it went to junk? Whoops, sorry, just thinking aloud here.) Thanks for your help! -

Regarding Mirror Glitch

Hey, man. I just went over the articles for cleanup and saw Scroll Button Songs. The article looked OK and I went over the last few talk page posts to see why it should be cleaned up. I saw no problem, and I was just about to remove the template, when I decided to dig in the history a little and came across this edit from almost exactly a year ago. That discussion started two and a half years ago, and the article has been in "cleanup" ever since. Is that REALLY such a big of an issue? I mean, it looks like some technical thing to fix that should not bother the casual reader. I didn't even notice the email list on the mirrors after I read the talk page. I just listened to the songs. What I'm suggesting is to remove the template and you'll just fix whatever you need to fix whenever you got the time, since the article itself is fine. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 06:41, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure why you're asking me. I already removed that cleanup template once, and I didn't make the edit you linked to. The same user who made that edit is the one who put the template back. — It's dot com 17:33, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Ah! I see I hadn't dug deep enough in the history... I contacted you because you're involved in that talk page discussion. Oh well. I agree with you - There shouldn't be a template there. I'm removing it. Thanks for sorting this up :). Elcool (talk)(contribs) 18:48, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Little questions

Hey, DC. I was wondering:

It's not like you can't still talk to each other. I didn't close the Internet, or even IRC. If you want to have your own channel, then make it, post the location on your forum, and then go there. Anything with the "hrwiki" name on it means one of our admins has to keep an eye on it. We don't want to do that anymore. Closing #hrwiki-fanstuff solves the problem. It's win-win in the long run. — It's dot com 19:11, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

well, you caught my attention with the chat on Super Sam's talk on the fanstuff wiki, and i didn't get to put my idea in before you locked it out. i figure this is as relevant a topic as any. if the sysops and moderators are the problem, why don't you get some new ones over there? i don't think this is worth closing that wiki. I'm sure there's a lot of people that would be capable enough to run that wiki that update frequently enough to care. I'm not saying it's me, i haven't done anything on either for over a year besides now, but I'm sure there are people that care about the fanstuff wiki as much as you care about the knowledge base. and i don't believe either site deserves to die just for lack of usage after the purge. a lot of the users just said "screw it" after waiting so long for it to come back, it seems unfair to close it for good before there's time to get more people interested again.

I'm sad they didn't win it all, but I'm not really that disappointed. In fact, I'm very proud of how they did this season. Winning the pennant, especially when you never have before, is still a big deal. There are still two teams (Mariners and Expos/Nationals) that never have. The fact that the Rangers advanced to the World Series by completely taking apart the Yankees just made it all the sweeter. (Take that, Tom!) :) — It's dot com 20:14, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

New Logo

Did you make that? What a great idea! Homestar-Winner (talk) 03:11, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Actually, the idea came from the annony of this Main Page discussion, who was concerned about the bandwidth being sucked up by that giant, 1 MB GIF. That is some epic decompiler work you did there, Dot Com! I've always wondered how you got Homestar in the logo like that, and I enjoy the little Easter Egg. The addition of Flash detection is also very nice. Except I'm not that big of a fan of the lost Decemberween colors, but it adds consistency and balances the page, in my opinion. Also, you might want to remove the special no-click treatment for the 'flakes. It's making my cursor spazz-out. Anyway, great work! Now everything is tiny. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 04:16, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
Well, to be fair, all he said was that we should make it into a SWF, which is an idea that I had years ago but had never taken the time to implement. So really he just nudged me into going ahead and doing it. Redrawing the logo GIF as a vector format, designing the snowflakes, coding their motion (notice that they never repeat), and adding hidden extras were all me. Anyways, thanks! — It's dot com 06:17, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Aforementioned annony here, nice work on the swf! I'm a flash animator myself and I would have made it if you had said something "well why don't you make it yourself if you're so concerned" :P -- 06:51, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Nah, it's cool. I enjoyed the practice, and given the various issues regarding SWFs and security, etc., it's the kind of project I'd prefer to do start to finish myself if at all possible. Glad you like it! — It's dot com 08:28, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

I'm really impressed! Good job! I love the dween logo and the new years one too. I guess you're going to turn them all into SWF files now eh? Like the idea of little easter eggs in the future like with the dween one haha. Can't wait to see other holidays (especially Halloween) in the future. Maybe for Halloween you could make it where clicking on Homestar would change his costume or something in the logo, that's a good idea. I know Halloween is a long ways off though haha.Image:Stinkwing.gif »Bleed0range«

HRWiki celebrates New Year's with a logo

(This was made on 1/1/11 so don't say "I don't see it") Hey, I just like to comment the new years logo. I like how after a few seconds Homestar blows a party blower and confetti falls. It really caught my eye. I thought I saw something on the logo other (of course other than Homestar blinking every 3 seconds) and I waited a few seconds and I saw Homestar blowin' a party blower and confetti falling from Hammerspace!. It's a great way to celebrate 2011! Pgj1997 (Talk page · things I've done)

That is a nice easter egg. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 04:13, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Right now it looks like it toggles between homestar, marzipan, and strong bad wearing winter hats or earmuffs. eventually, homestar turns into a Special:Random type link. but i can't figure out if there's a set number of clicks for that to happen. The Knights Who Say Ni 01:53, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
The logo has been changed back to the not New Year's version yesterday, you know. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 03:02, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
...yes, i am well aware of that. there was a small piece that i omitted from the previous post b/c i thought it was overkill, but it looks like i had to invisicomment it back in. i was asking about the random page thing - if that was an intentional Easter egg. The Knights Who Say Ni 03:10, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
Yes, that is an intentional Easter egg. The trigger is not the number of clicks, but it is something specific. You can guess again or if you want I'll just tell you. — It's dot com 03:15, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Y'ello, Dot Com, I was wondering, in the vague interest of another wiki I contribute to, how and where you added the animated logo, both in its current swf form, and its previous form. (Though I can't help but wonder if I shouldn't already have figured that one out myself... *sigh* Oh well...) --Neumannz 02:24, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

We're using the SWFObject method of adding SWF files to pages, which seems to work well across many browsers while also being compatible with devices with no Flash support. It requires placing swfobject.js on your server in addition to your SWF logo. (Note: we're using version 1.5, but later versions have been released.) The following quick and dirty edit of MonoBook.php will do the trick (be sure to adjust the paths to point to the correct files). The next time we upgrade MediaWiki, I'll probably fancy it up a little, but for now it's fine. — It's dot com 19:45, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

OK. Also, since I already made this one section on your user talkpage, I might as well ask another question that came to mind. The MediaWiki extension that makes a new special page, which can allow someone to view a scrambled version of a specified page, is that available on request? Or is it already in the MediaWiki get extensions list? LikeLakers2 23:08, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
