Hall of fame edit summaries

here's one that's very funny when taken out of context: DeFender1031 21:53, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Nice one. Not quite HoF material, though ;-) Loafing 22:26, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
Holy gorsh! I need to be paying more attention to what I put in my edit summaries! Has Matt? (talk) 00:27, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
Nah matt man, it's all good. It's just when i saw it in RC all i saw was that and started cracking up. DeFender1031 01:53, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

What about this one? (→Merge - and I like reruns of Arrested Development on TV ... er, I mean... reply!)

Yes, I saw that. Maybe if I liked that show too ;-) Keep try. Loafing 02:47, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

here's one by Jay that I thought was cool. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 22:12, 15 May 2007 (UTC)


I'm finally on your Hall of Fame. It isn't exactly me, but... heck yes!! --TheYellowDart(t/c) 21:37, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Nope! You're absolutely right. That's what I get for editing at 7:44am running on little to no sleep. --Stux 15:03, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

That Loafing

That Loafing is a computer genius man. Flashfight

He sure is ;-) Loafing 02:47, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Hey Loafing...

Is it o.k. if I borrow the idea of the hall of fame, but instead use talk page quotes? --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 16:01, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Sure, no probalo ^_^ Loafing 21:41, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the invite

In reference to the comment you left - Invitation accepted :) - Looking forward to working more on the subtitles project [Nebulon] 07:56, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

You're very welcome. And welcome to the wiki (again)! I'm glad you joined. And great sig! :-)  Loafing 08:07, 26 April 2007 (UTC)


Hey, it's me. I was wondering if I could possibly change my name on here. I know if I creat a second accound, it would be considered sockpuppetry. I decided to come to you, one of the many sysops on this wiki and ask if I could change my name. Please get back to me. -Cool Tapes.exe
PS: Post the reply on my talk page. Thanks!


Why do you keep deleting my welcome post on Kittyslasher's talk page? I'm just trying to help. Homestarmy Commando1

I can answer that. He is vandal and we don't welcome vandals. I welcomed a few vandals not even knowing that they were already vandals. Please see the block log or on the deletion log if you want to see if you welcome a vandal. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
Ah, I was just about to post on your talk page. I'm sorry, but that particular user is a vandal who has been blocked from editing forever. I do appreciate that you welcome new users, and I do know that it's confusing that some users should not actually be welcomed. I had the same problem when I started! Only very few users are vandals, and it's usually safe to welcome everybody. If you see that a new user has not been welcomed for quite a while (maybe an hour or longer), then you might want to check Special:Log/block to see if he or she has been blocked. Don't let this spoil your mood, it's no big deal! :-) Loafing 13:34, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks a LOT, guys. I had no idea that guy was a vandal. Homestarmy Commando1

Pfargtl pic.

Thanks for uploading a better one. I was trying to do five things at once on the toon's article and the screenshot was one too many, I think.— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 10:42, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Hey no worries. You actually beat me to the image by a few seconds. I was in the process of uploading a screenshot of the "DVD menu", but your idea was better ;-) Good jorb with the transcript(s)! Loafing 10:44, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. This one wasn't too hard. It's so short.— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 10:48, 30 April 2007 (UTC)


I don't understand. My comment re: the VA Tech tragedy was sincere.BryanCTC 04:14, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I'm sure it was. It's just that you're already the second editor to mix up Georgia and Virginia. ;-) And apart from that, it's not quite article talk page appropriate, as the talk page is for discussing article content. Keep on tranglin'!  Loafing 04:16, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
At least you're not the only one Byanc! Homestar-Winner (talk) 20:28, 3 May 2007 (UTC)


Loafing, I've seen other people make subpages that I don't think fit the H*R Wiki and they never get deleted. Do you think many admins just never notice or that I'm wrong about the Wiki policy. (Also, I might not do TODs anymore. I can't think of many good ones.) Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:42, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

That is a very good point. There are many subpages that really shouldn't be there according to our policy, and I have been meaning to bring this up for a while now. It's just a lot of work, and so I've so far concentrated mainly on new subpages. And really, only policing subpages is no fun, so I'm mostly doing other things, as I guess most other users will do, too. Apart from that, I like Trey's response on your talk page, and his post here, which must have been inspired by your question. And hey, you might have a good idea for another TOD tomorrow or next week. Never say never ;-) Loafing 01:36, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

i has a deletion

Hey Loafing. I was wondering if you can delete my "i has a crayon" personal image on my userpage. Instead of that, I am doing a Nintendo challenge like Trey. (with permission) So, if you could do that for me, it would make me happy. ;-) Keep on tranglin, TheYellowDart(t/c) 02:42, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

I has a deletion! Loafing 02:43, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
Thanks man. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 02:45, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

It's a new drill!

Oh, awesome!

Happy birthday! Here's a drill. Keep on doin' great stuff for the wiki and vanquishing that thesis! Trey56 23:56, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Threw it at Strong Sad, but it's still good
Yeah, Happy B-Day Loafing. I get to say Happy birthday to you all day. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 23:57, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
Note to self: Loafing doesn't suck. Happy birfday, Loafing! Keep on doing that sysop thing... that you do... Has Matt? (talk) 00:06, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Happy Birthday Loafing! Happy Birthday! Okay that wasn't very original. --Stux 00:45, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Happy Birthday Loafing! May you always keep helping me out with all the stuff I don't know! Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:49, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Awww, thanks a lot, you guys. Hmmm, a power drill and a cake... the plausibilities are endless! Loafing 03:37, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Happy birthday, man! I wish you that your New-Zealand gravity boots won't fail you and you won't fall from the earth for a whole year! :) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 04:06, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Happy Loafday. Have a time! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 09:05, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Pumpkin Carve-nival

Did you think that was a legit idea to make the transcript more accurate? Please reply at Talk: Pumpkin Carve-nival#Strong Bad as Homestar. Sorry if this annoys you; I am not intending to. Bad Bad Guy 22:24, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

If you don't know I was referring to the quotation mark thing. Bad Bad Guy 22:29, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Did you just...

The n00bity of this question is intense, but did you just...block yourself? It's been a long time since I've seen a vandal blocked, but it DOES say that Loafing blocked "User:Loafing" with an expiry time of infinite...· · T2|Things 22:51, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I've been suspicious of that Loafing guy for quite a while. He's a shady fella. Or maybe I was distracted and clicked the wrong link. History will decide! ;-) Loafing 22:53, 27 May 2007 (UTC)
I'm gonna find some way to preserve that for posterity, maybe even prosperity.· · T2|Things 22:55, 27 May 2007 (UTC)
So then I grabbed the Blue Laser Loafing by his collar and said, "You betta block yourself!"--Bobo the King 05:48, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
He's not the first to hit the wrong button accidentally... (or intentionally...) and he won't be the last. --phlip TC 06:18, 28 May 2007 (UTC)


I don't want this navbar for my user page anymore. Could you delort it? Homestar-Winner (talk) 10:53, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Sure. It's still used on your user page and your talk page, though! Are you sure you want me to delete it immediately? Also, a tip for the future: if you want one of your subpages to be deleted, put {{delete|No longer needed}} at the top, and it will soon be deleted by a sysop. So, just let me know if it's really OK to go ahead, and I'll delort it! Oh, and keep up the good work on the wiki! :-) Loafing 11:40, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
Done and done! Thanks Loafing! Homestar-Winner (talk) 11:59, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
No probalo! Loafing 19:03, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Png guy checks talk page

PNG GUY: I use an exe called PNGOUT[1] which was created by the Ken Silverman, creator of the Build engine used in Duke Nukem 3D, amongst other games. PNGOUT is excellent at optimizing PNGs if you use the right settings. Unfortunately, it doesn't check EVERY possible combination of settings for the smallest file size. That part I have to do myself. Well, there's your answer. Png guy 03:05, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply, that's really a cool tool. I've just tried it with PNGGauntlet, which tries out a set of combinations to find the best one. Oh, and usually, you should just reply on your talk page. Normally, I;d move this discussion back to your page now, but the "checks talk page" idea is so cool, i'm'a gonna go ahead and not touch it ;-) Loafing 04:08, 11 June 2007 (UTC)


Uhh... sorry for constantly questioning you sysops... but why didn't this guy's talk page have the automated welcoming tips and you welcomed him instead? Homestar-Winner (talk) 11:39, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

He/she joined in March, nearly two months before we started doing the automated tips. So someone from the welcoming committee must have overlooked him. Loafing 11:44, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

One heck of a guy

Well okay then

My plan was to make an account that you or any other sysop could use to block people so people couldn't flame ypu whwn you blocked themZorc 00:30, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Did what ya said on my talk page Hopefully you can't read french cause BAISE!Zorc 00:34, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
Oh come on respond already!

Talk pic

How do you get a pic for your Talk button thing? I guess I never really learned when everybody started doing it on here. Yours is a loaf of bread. That's what I'm talking about. Sanjuro 16:57, 30 June 2007 (UTC)


Thank you for fixing my user boxes and responding to my comment onTalk:Inkhole InterviewRandomnerd10 19:32, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

With lack of a better title...

Since you are always voting delete on my articles.(The bad ones, at least.) I figured you would know what a necessary or unnecessary one would be. Anyways, should I make Squinting on account of Strong Bad doing so to read long or unclear words. Super!SantanaDuper!

I'm gunna go ahead and give my two cents. Squinting is a natural function of the human body when reading long or unclear words, therefore, I don't think it merits a page. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 22:11, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
SantanaHomerunner, I do appreciate your eagerness to contribute to the wiki. However, you often create new articles too quickly. Next time, before you create the article, check if this is already covered elsewhere (as for example with Basketballs), ask yourself if this would actually make for an interesting article (Squinting is for example a very normal thing to do, so it's not very notable). Also, make sure you go through the points listed in our inclusion guidelines to see if that article would have a chance. You've created 2 decent articles, which is much more than most new users can say, so you really don't need to stress. However, 15 (!) of your articles have turned out deleted, redirected or will soon be. You need to make sure that you'll be more productive, as it is a lot of work for everybody to discuss those articles. Keep an tranglin'! Loafing 23:57, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

user gift.From a friend.

What do you think of this? I started wondering after DeFender1031's edit summary when he reverted it. Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:53, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

I didn't know what to make of it either, hence the question rather than a statement. — Defender1031*Talk 00:55, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
So far, the anonny has had decent contribs. It might have been a mistake or a glitch. Not sure. We'll see what happens. Loafing 00:57, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
Looks like they ran it through an online translation site. Shwoo 02:26, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
Shwoo, i immediately thought of something like babelfish, here i mentioned a "literary scrambling script". — Defender1031*Talk 02:27, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Also about Vandalism

What has done wrong? I saw you gave him a block warning a couple days ago. Homestar-Winner (talk) 02:35, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Go to that block warning link, hit History, and read the summary. He explains why. (And laugh at Loafing's screwup of posting it on the user page accidentally.) Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:42, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
yes, we all laughed. — Defender1031*Talk 02:43, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
So long as we all see the value in a good edit summary: you can laugh at it later. No, wait. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:51, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
Ha-Ha! But I still don't get what edit the annony made that was vandalism. Could Simone please give me a link to the edit he made that was vandalism? Homestar-Winner (talk) 02:55, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
It was not vandalism, it was, as noted, trolling. That is, the posting in a thread solely for attention. Read the thread cited to see what we're talking about. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:59, 31 July 2007 (UTC)


I was thinking about creating a page, when I thought, before I get stuffed, (Get it?) I should ask you because you seem to really understand the Wiki. Should I make Symbols? It would tell about different symbols used in the Homestar Runner universe. Kind of like Fonts. It could also tell about when something like ♥ replaced "love" or something like that. Is there already a page that relates? Is it unecessary?--Super!SantanaDuper! 23:11, 7 August 2007 (UTC) P.S. Your my new page consultant.

I gotta-nother: a- on account of a-the cheat or that one at the end of monument. Or mumbling.--Super!SantanaDuper! 19:21, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
Lol, thanks for choosing me as your page consultant. I charge $5000 per suggestion. Anyway, I strongly advise you to overthink these ideas. While these are certainly real occurrances, you need to think if anybody would actually be interested in the articles. mumbling for example is neither funny nor out of the ordinary. I'm also not so sure about your other suggestions. a- is for exmple something that really only Strong Bad does, so a whole article on it might be too much. You know, you don't need to create heaps of new pages if you want to contribute to the wiki. Gnome work is very much appreciated, too :-) Loafing 23:05, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
I will take that into consideration, but I want to inform you that I went ahead and made Stew. I was very confident in my idea. But I have another one: Mining.--Super!SantanaDuper! 23:11, 8 August 2007 (UTC) P.S. What about Symbols from paragragh #1 of this conversation.
One more. Spring Break?--Super!SantanaDuper! 23:35, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm not really convinced by any of these. Symbols would not really list anything H*R specific, would it? You always have to ask yourself if someone would actually want to read such an article. Not sure that mining is something that happens so often at, and there has never been any actual spring break. You should also definitely check out HRWiki:Spoons and it's talk page. Now, as per our agreement, you owe me $30.000 if I counted correctly. But seriously, I might not be the best guy to ask about those articles. I'm not too sure myself if an article is worth creating. Contrary to popular belief, I'm not all-knowing. Loafing 07:22, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
