Stinkoman 20X6 sprites!

I love the animated sprites from Stinkoman 20X6 you've been getting. Are you planning on making any of 1-Up? Aurora the Homestar Coder 22:31, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

Um, not at the moment. They're just for Stinkoman 20X6 Enemies, and 1-Up isn't in there. They aren't too hard to make, though. - Joshua

Marzipan's Answering Machine moves

Why did you move these? They were correct as they were. →FireBird

Beat me to it. I was about to ask the very same question. --Jay (Talk) 02:02, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
I didn't like it and asked about it in the talk page, but when nobody responded, I decided to try it and see what the response was. I had every intention to change it back if it wasn't wanted, but it seems like you did that instead. -- Joshua 02:16, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
If you watch the answering machines 9-12, you'll see that it says "Version #.2", but I'm sure you knew that. Thanks for understanding. →FireBird
Yes, but as I stated in the talk page, I don't like it, and if we do that, we might as well make all the others X.0. I just don't think it's nessecary, and I think it looks worse. I understand why it was done, I just think it needs to be changed. -- Joshua 12:11, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
We're just following what The Brothers Chaps do. If they decide suddenly to change all Strong Bad Emails to, say, "Strong Bad Email #5.8", we would, too. The other machine's don't need "#.0" on them because they don't on the offical site, yet the 9-12 do. Again, just doing what TBC do. →FireBird
Actually, they do have Version 2.0 and Version 5.0, in the same place where Version 10.2 is. -- Joshua 12:49, 3 May 2005 (UTC)

Places Strong Bad Made Up

Hi there Joshua. If you are moving an article's content to the Places Strong Bad Made Up page, don't mark the article for deletion. Instead, just redirect to Places Strong Bad Made Up. Thanks. -- Tom 15:32, 5 May 2005 (UTC)


Just noticced the problem you're having with your sig. In your preferences, make sure the box is ticked that says "Raw Signatures (without automatic link)" or similar. This should fix your sig problems. --Venusy (Talk) (Contributions), 23:05, 6 May 2005 (BST)
EDIT: And put the font tag [[After the line|HERE]].

Thanks. I just figured it out. -- Joshua


Hey, Joshua. I was going to share this on IRC chat, but since Freenode is refusing my connection, I thought I'd share this with you for fun. I'm at Disney World, and I was at the Boardwalk, and this stand was selling Kewpie dolls. I immediately thought of Kewpie Dan. Just needed to say this. :-D --Homsar999ß 23:50, 3 Jul 2005 (EDT)

Fanstuff Wiki

Hi, would you happen to know how to post a fanfic type thing at the fanstuff wiki? If you do, could you possibly help me, because I can't fuigure it out. Homestramy20 08:27, 27 Aug 2005 (UTC)

There, joshua, done and done. Now, do ya think you might be able to help me move it to fanstuff wiki? Homestramy20 00:51, 29 Aug 2005 (UTC)


I left you a message on your Fanstuff wiki talk page. H*R 700

I left you another message. I'm sorry. H*R 700

This seems as a good place as any to leave this. Joshua, excellent job with the Geddup! I didn't know I'd be putting all this work in! Arg! But it's looking good! --Stux 04:46, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)


Actually, it was not I who first noticed this, but Darklinkskywalker. — It's dot com 22:46, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)
P.S. If you're gonna put my name in the edit summary, notice the capitalization. I'd hate to be confused for a troll. ;) But you can call me "Dot com" for short, if you want. :)

But it was you who didn't want it to be changed to Old-Timey with everything else, because it had a verified date. - Joshua
Nah, I don't care about the actual date. 1933 just happens to be the name of the page for the pre-sound Old-Timey cartoons. That page could be called "Even More Old-Timey" and it would be just fine with me. Actually, that's a horrible title, but you get the point. My thinking on this subject is not very strong either way, but since 1933 is slightly more specific, I thought it should stay. I would, however, be interested in any suggestions or thoughts you have. — It's dot com 23:25, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Well, the page title itself reads "Old Timey." But as you said, I don't care either way. But do we even have proof that it was released in 1933 (2000)? It could very well be a 1934 thing. - Joshua
Like I said, the date itself isn't my area of expertise. Look at the Main Pages page again. I put in another link. Do you think that improves it? — It's dot com 23:51, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I don't know if that's an improvement. Either link to 1933 or link to Old-Timey, but not to both. Remember that the 1933 blatantly links to the Old-Timey page anyway. Linking to Old-Timey in the description is like... linking to something in transcript dialogue. - Joshua
Well, I see you changed it back. I don't care about this enough to really put up a good argument, but I will say once more that you seem to be fixating on the year 1933, when I'm saying that I was just linking to the page with the title "1933", because that's the page for the soundless H*R era. It's just like how "Old-Timey" used to be called "1936". — It's dot com 22:08, 1 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Yes, well, that would have been a good arguement if it weren't for the fact that your "1936" thing is about a week late, and now supports my preference. - Joshua

Stop editing me!

Joshua!! Stop editing my stuff!! What'd I ever do to you?! -FaceCrap

You were breaking the rules. So I fixed it so you wouldn't get in trouble. (Although it seems like you un-fixed it and got in trouble anyway.) - Joshua

( )'s

Why not? — It's dot com 16:49, 13 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Well, the way they were implimented was really messy. I wouldn't mind them back in if you could make them look neater. - Joshua

Random Toon

Sorry about changing the random toon thing, I didn't notice the piped link. -- Super Sam 09:26, 17 Sep 2005 (UTC)

It's okay. - Joshua

Quote of the Week archive

Hi there Joshua. There's no need to archive the Quote of the Week page. The page is neither too long nor does it have many images on it. Thanks anyway though. -- Tom 01:56, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Are you sure? I mean, it's going to get long eventually, and the other two weeklies need archiving. I think they should be archived in a similar fashion as H*R Updates. - Joshua
Have you determined if there is community consensus for this pretty major change? I already started a discussion on the Talk:Quote of the Week page, feel free to add to it. -- Tom 02:00, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Well, I sort of did here. I only got two replies, but they were both positive and that was 2+ weeks ago. I figured I would just do all three, starting with QotW. - Joshua 02:04, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

The Geddup Noise

Joshua, Yes, we're still missing some! Like i mentioned before in the discussion, I only went through 70-95 for sure on my end. That's why I put the "geddup noise approved" table, so that we could coordinate what emails had yet to be checked and where the noise was found if at all. That way we don't unnecessarily duplicate efforts and also guarantee thoroughness. Unfortunately I haven't had the chace to Finish the table (I haven't even put info on the ones I didn't find on the 70-95 range, nor are all the ones listed in the page in this table), but it's there for that purpose.

Your redesigned User Page

Wow. I greatly admire what you've done with your User Page! Let me be the first to say how sleek and easy to nagivate it is now. Very impressive. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 03:55, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

Thanks. I'm happy that I finally got a cool, unique main page. :) - Joshua 12:41, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

Action captions

Hey, as long as you're overhauling old sbemails, can you fix problems with the {---}-type action descriptions? HRWiki:Standards#Transcript seems to me to mean that brief descriptions should stay within the character's line, without a break, and may or may not be full sentences with capatilization and a period. Longer descriptions should get a new line, and the character can start speaking again after that. Those have to be full, capped, perioded, sentences. But if it has a period it should definitely start with cap, one way or the other. (I've also been reluctant to break character's sentences; see Family Resemblence. I left a lot of fairly short, full-sentence descriptions inline because otherwise Strong Bad's sentences would be chopped up into bunches of STRONG BAD: 's.) —AbdiViklas 13:21, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

I'm aware with how the standards work, although I missed the whole "actions more than a few words long should have their own line" part. I'll fix that up. (Also, I noticed modeling is a huge mess, I might fix that up soon) - Joshua 13:40, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
Also, I think all actions that take place inside the dialogue (and not on their own line) should not be full sentences, for consistency's sake. - Joshua


Sorry that I accidentally deleted your talk page. I was actually trying to delete "User talk:Joshua ON WHEELS" *rolleyes* Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 22:49, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

We speak American here dog-gonnit!

In reference to your revert about Enligsh spelling, I have a general question. I am American and so are the creators of H*R, but what are the wiki standards of language. This is obviously an int'l site as JoeyDay the commander-in-chief of this wiki is an Aussie. How do we determine spelling for things such as color vs colour? From any Aussies, I'd also be interested to know if your spelling closer resemble, American or English spellings? I R F 14:53, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

See here for a dicussion on this subject. And incidentally, you may want to read the second paragraph on this page as well. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 15:09, 25 October 2005 (UTC)
JoeyDay is an American, but this is an international site as it contains users from America, Canada, the UK, Australia, etc. Anyway, when it comes to favorite vs. favourite, do what you like, but I'm going to do it the way TBC do it. - Joshua 15:33, 25 October 2005 (UTC)
I stand corrected on Joey's country of origin. If there are any Aussie's here, I'd still be interested in how they spell? I R F
You could ask Phlip, Rainer, or Pertmywert. They are all from Australia. — It's dot com 15:57, 25 October 2005 (UTC)
One of my friends, Super Sam, is an Aussie. He spells stuff with unnessecary vowels. (i.e. colour) - Joshua 16:17, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

Games Menu Easter Egg pics

Good job on getting better pics for that table. I don't have any editing software at my current PC. I R F 13:53, 27 October 2005 (UTC)

Thanks. I would have done more if it weren't for school. :S - Joshua 15:06, 27 October 2005 (UTC)
