Place ya bets

Sorry about that, I was using next epi-snowed as a starting template and meant to copy and paste the text into its own article. I fear I shall leave this up to those who aren't currently at work. GillanTheVillain 22:25, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Naw, it's an easy mistake to make. I do see now that, yes, the short IS real. --Jay (Gobble) 22:27, 15 September 2008 (UTC)


Uh, sorry about that Strong Badia the Free thing. I'll be more careful next time. Have you already reverted to the past version of the page, how it was before I edited it? Thanks if you did. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 21:35, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, and if it was an accident, it's all cool now. --Jay (Gobble) 22:11, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

A little thank you

I just want to pass a brief thank you for your assistance on Behind the Bad Episode 2's transcription. Though, I don't know if this is clear yet, but I'm a female. No biggie though, it happens :) Rexy 07:34, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Actually, the possibility of you being female occurred to me shortly after I typed that and took a second look at your user name. Oh well. No offense meant, of course. --Jay (Gobble) 07:41, 23 October 2008 (UTC)


"A game about love, honor, power, and giant taking kitty cats..."

Shouldn't that be giant talking kitty cats?-- 00:54, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

... ... ... ... ... Now how long has that been on my user page?!?!?! Thanks for pointing it out. --Jay (Gobble) 02:28, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
(To answer my own rhetorical question, that typo went unnoticed for almost four years. Oops. --Jay (Gobble) 23:54, 28 October 2008 (UTC))


Just to let you know, it's no longer thanksgiving. It's christmas. Raiku 01:04, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Oh, yeah. I wasn't even paying attention to my sig. --Jay (Gobble) 01:05, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
Jay, how do you change the colors in your sig? coz i want more than just green. Plz tell me asap. OpenSourceGreg 07:04, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

No Hard Feelings

Quoting one of your edit summaries for the Halfathlon responses in 8-Bit Is Enough:

"Okay, sorry I got upset. Anyway, sometimes the subtitles are wrong, as you can tell here."

Don't worry about it. I saw that most of your frustration was taken out on MHarrington's additions to the responses archive rather than mine, so it shouldn't be me you should be apologising. As for subs, I have them on all the time due to a personal hearing problem I have.

But yeah, in other words: don't criticise yourself. Stay cool. Drink pie-monade. Rexy-mberween (save the rabbits!) 19:56, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Sensitive to Bees

I made a second video to show how I edited the audio on the CD's track. Hope this is enlightening for you!

Re: this edit

Sorry about that, my American-learned grammar instincts reacted instantly. I'll keep that in mind for the future. —Guard Duck talk 05:36, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

No, it's cool. It's not the first time this has come up. Just remember: the policy on this Wiki is to only put punctuation marks inside quotation marks if they're part of the quote. --Jay (Gobble) 05:38, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Career Day

Jay, thank you for that info

--Jagger88 08:38, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

April Fool's Sigs

Which users are referenced? BBG 20:48, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Not as many as there should be. I'll explain it all when the protection on AFJAOBN lifts. --Jay (Gobble) 20:49, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
So anyway:
How many did you get correct? ;) --Jay (Gobble) 18:37, 2 April 2009 (UTC)


Wow, 27. I made sure to type this in a bigger font size so your eyes would still be able to see it :P Homestar-Winner (talk) 11:57, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Why Qermaq, you whippersnapper, my eyesight's as good as it has ever been! You kids today don't know how to respect your elders!! Back in my day, we didn't have any of these fancy-schmancy "big fonts"! Why, everyone wrote in three-point text, and we liked it! And further more, blah blah etc. etc. --Jay (Gobble) 17:52, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Wow, 27 eh? How are the wife and grandkids? — Defender1031*Talk 17:59, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Just fine, thanks for asking. Johnny, my youngest grandkid, has just proposed to his girlfriend. My stars and garters, they grow up so fast. Why, it seems like just yesterday I was a strapping young lad of 26, still working a low-level job, with no kids at all! Where does the time go? --Jay (Gobble) 18:07, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Happy birthday old-timer! Can all us cuddle around you and listen to stories how you came from the Old Country? And you fought a bear? Please tell how you fought a bear! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 06:18, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
Not much to tell. I was unconscious for most of it. Why do you think I have this eyepatch? --Jay (Gobble) 08:09, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
An unfortunate Coke bottle accident? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 07:11, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Ye-ru-sa-la-yim shel za-hav... (insert rest of song here). And I take it they only do Coke and Mentos there, too? VmKid 00:45, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
Hey, your birthday's so close to mine! Yours is the 3rd of April, mine is the 8th of April! Belated (and "late" 'd) birthday wishings! OpenSourceGreg 09:54, 7 April 2009 (UTC)


I made a message for myself for my birthday and want to post it on the wiki so's people can hear it. Is there somewhere I can do it? Like in a personal sounds file? Or do I has to wait for the fanstuff wiki to emerge from the depths of darkness? Jagger88 12:32, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

If it's not H*R-related, my recommendation would be to not do it. However, I'm not the leading authority here. Anyway, Wikis tend to prefer the obscure .ogg file type for audio. --Jay (Gobble) 19:36, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, if I put it in my personal files and removed it after, say, a week, would that be acceptable? The file is a montage of Homestar saying "Happy birthday" to me, and another is a montage of several characters saying "Happy freakin' birthday, jack!". Is this considered to be H*R related? Because I don't want to cause any dramas. Also, how do you convert mp3 to ogg? OpenSourceGreg 05:54, 6 April 2009 (UTC)


Jay, I was thinking that we should maybe compile a page with all of the times characters get hurt. I'm sure there are plenty of occasions to fill it up, ie. not be a stub. OpenSourceGreg 09:53, 7 April 2009 (UTC)


Hey, Jay. Earlier today you didn't go on theycallmefree's file did you? you no, about the periods? Fingerface 23:56, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

What you you mean "on his file"? I left a message on his talk page a few days ago because he made an edit that with a really, really long edit summary with no spaces that was making a mess of Special:Recentchanges and I told him not to do that. --Jay (Gobble) 00:31, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Double Punctuation

Jay, I do not mean to be pushy or anything, but earlier when you said you "weren't buying the double punctuation", well I didn't buy it first either, but there are quite a few times I've seen this. Which is right? Theycallmefree 23:41, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

If it were up to me, I'd say NOT having both an exclamation point and a period would be the way to go. But maybe that's just me. Perhaps we should bring it up on the Manual of Style page!. --Jay (Gobble) 23:45, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
This MAY be the first worthwhile thing I've done in my life! Maybe... Theycallmefree 23:50, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
[In the interest of not spamming Jay's talk page, I've added my 2¢s over on the Manual of Style's talk page  Green Helmet 00:38, 3 June 2009 (UTC)]


This is the second time i've been able to say this in the past week, but thanks for the reversion. lol
i thought the umpire said "You're out" instead of "Stee-rike." i must have been thrown off by the extra syllable in strike. and since they only showed the last strike of the KOT's at-bat (which of course that's all they would do), that also skewed my decision. The Knights Who Say Ni 16:40, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

KRAKOW! Yo do not belong on the Emails That Meet Strong Bad's Approval‎ page, Jay!

You will come into your own in college, and thrive! - The Arrow'd Guy 23:30, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

I've actually already graduated. But whatever. --Jay (Gobble) 01:48, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I figured.. well, it was supposed to be, like, a little joke. You know, we got the people watching at home. Just trying to be kind of funny for 'em, with the joke. A joke-post... {rapidly} I'ma kick you, too!! {kicks Jay's knee} {runs away} - 02:02, 18 July 2009 (UTC)


Re: this: disconnected could be considered another near-miss. But I can't think of any cases where he actually ends up in a race. Heimstern Läufer 04:16, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Jay's Journey

How long does it take to play? And what software do you need?- 21:54, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Oh, heh. I never timed it, actually, but it's moderately long. For software, you need the RPG Maker 2000 RTP (I'm not linking it here, but it shouldn't be that hard to find.) I don't know if it'll run on Vista. --Jay (Gobble) 22:17, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Recent Changes

Is there any way to view a recent changes list omitting the deleted pages? I've already found several useful options, like when people are doing image summary cleanup, to just omit the File namespace while viewing recent changes. is there a similar option for omitting deleted pages? The Knights Who Say Ni 03:57, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Unless someone flags them as "bot" edits or something, not that I know of, and he typically only makes them bot edits in special circumstances. Yeah, they're cluttering RC, I know. --Jay (Gobble) 04:01, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
Actually, looking at it, if you choose to hide patrolled edits, that'll do it, but it'll also hide all edits by sysops (and any edits marked as "patrolled", of course.) --Jay (Gobble) 04:02, 15 August 2009 (UTC)


THANKS! You rock! Espemon333 03:11, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Just doing what sysops are supposed to do. --Jay (Gobble) 03:12, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Great jorb! I thought those pages would stay up all night, but you came in and BALEETED them just like that! cash money tc 03:13, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Sorry 'bout dat.

Jay- Sorry 'bout delorting those things in dictionary instead of moving 'em. I Had brought up the editing window for that one section, and I didn't think to cut-paste into a different box. Just made a new signature, VmKid 00:40, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Jay's Journey Redeux

Sorry I had to post this here, but when I try to download Jay's Journey, It dosen't work! Well, the download works, but beyond that I can't play! Espemon333 00:26, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

1. AFAIK, it doesn't work in Vista. I don't know the workaround. 2. You need the RPG Maker 2000 RTP, and I'm not linking to that here (search for it). 3. You also need the .exe file, which is generic. I can't remember exactly what the .exe file is called, but it should be in the Readme file. If it doesn't come with RM2K RTP, it definitely comes with RM2K itself and some downloaded games. --Jay (Gobble) 01:30, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
For clarity... the file in question is called "RPG_RT.exe". Yeah, I work with RM2K, so... -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 02:21, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I thought it was something like that. --Jay (Gobble) 02:23, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
You Could have stopped at "It Dosen't work in Vista" :3Espemon333 22:20, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
I think there's a workaround to make it work in Vista. I just don't know it. --Jay (Gobble) 05:37, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
Ok, so I downloaded the Newest version of RPG Maker and I have one word to say to you... HOWTHECRAPCANYOUMAKEAWHOLEFRIGGINGAMEONTHATPIECEOFIMPOSSIBLETOUNDERSTANDABILITYGOODGOSHMAN!!!!!!!!! Espemon333 23:08, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Kinda lost what you were saying toward the end there. That said, making a game in RPG Maker 2000 is far easier than making a professional one. The "newest version" is not necessarily 2000, and I haven't seen anything since 2000 (if you have a version of RPG Maker that properly loads Jay's Journey and runs on Vista, I'd be interested to know what it is, but I realize you didn't actually say that.) --Jay (Gobble) 23:14, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
No, It wasnt 2000, and I dont know if it will run J'sJ, but my queston is... how did you do it??? Espemon333 23:18, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Patience. Planning. A bit of programming know-how. And a year and a half of spare time. --Jay (Gobble) 23:20, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
PS. Had I included custom graphics and music (beyond the maybe three tracks and small handful of modified sprites), that year and a half would have been much longer. There's a reason professional companies use teams... --Jay (Gobble) 23:21, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
The worst part of using the new one is that the people who used it havent put a tutorial up yet... can you tell me how to make playable charactors... and enemies... Espemon333 23:44, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Like I said, if it's not 2000, I'm not familiar it. And it's been years since I used 2000 anyway. But... if it's anything like 2000, there should be a "Database" option somewhere that allows you to customize the PCs, monsters, items, abilities, and so forth. --Jay (Gobble) 23:46, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Anonymous editing disable

Why don't you just disable Anonymous editing for a while?--Record307 Talk/Contribs 02:00, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Because I can't. I don't have the privileges to do so. --Jay (Gobble) 02:01, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
Crap. Only Bureaucrats have the privilege?--Record307 Talk/Contribs 02:02, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
Yeah. Don't let trolls under your skin, though. I get sarcastic with spammers only because I believe most of them to be robots. Vandals are usually actual humans, and they're just looking for attention. Don't give it to them. If they want attention, they can get it by being useful, productive users, just like everyone else. Any moron can add shocking images or nonsense to a Wiki page. Revert and otherwise ignore. --Jay (Gobble) 02:06, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Notes from Maudi

Hi, Jay!

A person behind the IP Address in Stockholm, Sweden wanted to improve the orders at Main Page 15 about Strong Bad's and The Cheat's 3 comments, but you prevented him to improve the orders at the page article. And he called you "moron", and he said disgusting words against you, and put the summary as follows: %&|-|()ę"=*¥. I agree with you, and he will stop calling you moron and he won't make personal attacks like at Main Page 15 ever again. Talk to, if you want to! --Maudi Algabban 11:55, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Concerning Danny Lilithborne

Re: this: After I saw the edit you reverted, I had a check on Wikipedia and found him listed as a deceased Wikipedian (I knew him a tad and can confirm that he is the same user as Wikipedia's JuJube). Wikipedia tends to be pretty good with verifying that sort of thing (more so in the mainspace, but still, they try to be careful all around), so I'm forced to conclude that it is most likely correct, alas. I don't know that we have any policy on whether hatnotes like that one are allowed on userpages (I suspect we don't have a policy, since I don't think this has really come up in the past), so I'm not saying you should revert or anything, I just thought it would be good to mention somewhere that the edit was probably accurate. Heimstern Läufer 08:34, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

I just saw that on the RC and thought to myself that all KiTA ever wanted was to preserve the user page as a memorial. So even if we don't say that he unfortunately passed away, be never delete user pages. Even old ones of users that haven't edited in years. So it will still be a "memorial" in the sense that no one is going to move it anywhere. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 21:51, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
I meant no offense to anyone. Danny's passing was something difficult for me to verify, and we have a policy against editing other people's user pages in most circumstances. Sorry if I was harsher than I meant to be. :( --Jay (Gobble) 03:30, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Jstone636 - spammer

I did a google search for Jstone636 and found several hits. He/she spoofed my IP address at Have you found a way to determine the IP address of users who have an account? I have stopped blocking IPs until I can figure out a way to determine if a spammer is spoofing the IP of a legitimate user. I see you deleted the spammer's account, which doesn't stop them from creating the same account again.
I can't determine the IP address that matches another account. I can determine yours, however, which is quite interesting. You say Jstone626 is, which "matches yours", but yours is Also, for curiosity's sake, I was going checking over your Wiki and it says my IP address is; it is not. I think there's something wrong with your software. --Jay (Gobble) 21:15, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
I get the same thing. Special:Mytalk takes me to instead of my real IP address. (For comparison, if I log out on our wiki and go to the same page here, it takes me to my correct IP.) — It's dot com 21:32, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Do you see what you've started? Homestar-Winner (talk) 02:25, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

I see that you have a lot of userboxes, and was thinging, maybe you could add the "too many freakin userboxes" userbox. Thanks. LikeLakers2 04:51, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Putting it on the page

Regarding this summary, I'm not sure whom you were addressing, me or Zoen, but if it was me then I just wanted to say I was waiting to give Zoen an opportunity to add the goof to the page since he was the one who spotted it. It had been missing for five years for all I know, so I didn't figure another day or two would hurt. — It's dot com 06:49, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Okay, sorry, I've kinda reached the point of "having the info is more important than who puts it up" on Wikis these days. I forget what it's like to be a new user sometimes. --Jay (Gobble) 07:45, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

2011 April Fool Explanations

I wrote that sig for 2010, but the overarching joke trampled it. I had it saved to a Notepad file, though. Almost all of the sigs that would randomly appear were quotes from something - mostly H*R related - and changed to match the colors of the speakers used in the subtitles, with estimations when that wasn't possible. As it was written in 2010, any changes made since then would not be reflected - in fact, one quote is a misquote (I didn't notice it until just now), as that's what the line was believed to be when this was written, and another is just simply wrong.

How many did you get right? --Jay (Gobble) 02:40, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
