Hey RickTommy, you've been doing a lot of subtitles recently which is awesome. But I do wonder about the quality. For example, [http://www.hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Subtitles:sbemail136/fr&diff=693502&oldid=693495 this] is how a native speaker edited one of your French subtitles. I see that now you've also tried your hands at German and Turkish subtitles. Please have a read of the [[HRWiki:Subtitles#Translating_Subtitles|translation guidelines]]. Right in the first paragraph it says "We ask that only skilled users of a language (native speakers or advanced students with real-life experience using the language) create translations for the wiki." Do you fall into that category?{{User:Loafing/sig}} 06:58, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Hello, I am DavidMichael. I will be messaging everyone with this message. Do not reply. Anyways, Happy Halloween! DavidMichael T C

Profanity?

Hi. Just saying, though not extremly vulgar in your case, please don't swear in subject bars. We all get that tense some times, but it really distracts us on the recent changes.. Keep up the good work anyway and happy Decemberween. --Jellote wuz here 02:49, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

Your recent message to anonny

I deleted a message you left for an anonny saying "How dare you!" I honestly have no idea what on earth you were talking about. I can find no evidence that the anonny made any inappropriate contributions at all, and even if he/she did, that message is totally the wrong way to go about it. If an anonny vandalizes a page, please use {{test}} to warn the user. Even then, make sure it's actually vandalism. Leaving and indignant and unclear message like yours won't do any good at all, so please don't do it again. Thanks. Heimstern Läufer 08:42, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Well, the anonymous user edited a page that had not been edited for nine months. I can get quite annoyed when someone edits a long-untouched page for no particular reason. Now the anon's edits have caused a miniature edit war. Oh, and I believe the anon user should create an account. Jc iindyysgvxc 20:43, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
There's nothing wrong with editing a page that hasn't been edited in a while. And it's not "for no particular reason"; the reason is that the anon thought there was something that should be added. The fact that this happened to cause a slight editing dispute is no fault of the anon's. Furthermore, while we do like for people to get accounts, there's nothing at all wrong with editing anonymously. If you're going to take offense at anonnies who edit pages that haven't been edited in a while, perhaps you should simply refrain from talking to anons at all, because it's not OK to post indignant messages for people who haven't done anything wrong.

May I ask...

Was there consensus on the Nicknames page to change every instance of self-nicknaming from the character's name to "himself"? You left no reason at all and the talk page says nothing, as well... --h o mj esa na rtalk contr. 23:13, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Real topic names

Hey there, RickTommy. I've noticed at least half a dozen times that you've just put "Question" in the subject/headline field when starting a new topic. This is less than ideal because it doesn't give someone reading the headline from recent changes or a watchlist some idea of what to expect (or perhaps ignore), it makes it difficult to search for specific topics, and it doesn't mesh well with the page history. Please use a real topic name in the subject/headline field when starting a new topic. It will make things much clearer and useful. Thanks one million! — It's dot com 18:10, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

"Changey" sig

With the text fading from one color to another? That'sBupkis! 00:50, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Mmm...hmmm. RickTommy talk 00:51, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
Or did you want your sig to be the same color and font as Heimstern's? And if it's two fading colors you want, just tell which two colors and I'll get to work on it. That'sBupkis! 00:56, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Little questions

Hey RickTommy. When it comes to site maintenance, you don't need to ask questions about every little behind-the-scenes detail. The answer to such questions (as far as you're concerned) is typically "because we need to" and doesn't involve any decisions related to the content of the knowledge base. Cheers. — It's dot com 03:37, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Userboxes

I noticed your userboxes are placed by themselves, it's the reason why they're messed up like that. Do you need help? ColdReactive 12:29, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Yes. Oui. Ja. Hai. Si. RickTommy (edits) 12:38, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
Notice the difference between your current code you use and the below code? If you do not, I can point it out to you. ColdReactive 12:44, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
Code:
{{userboxtop}}

{{userbox|border=red|mainbkgd=yellow|codebkg=white|code=NOSTORE|msg=Unfortunately, I do not own anything from the store. And I don't think I'll be able to until I get my own [[credit card]] (which won't be for another year).}}

{{userbox | border=black | mainbkgd=red | codebkgd=white | code=[[Image:Sbcg4ap105 235x225.png|45px]] | msg= This user got '''Maximum Awesomeness''' in [[8-Bit Is Enough]].}}

{{userbox | border=#FC3 | mainbkgd=#FFF | codebkgd=#39F | codecolor=#F00 | code=2007 | msg=This user discovered the H*R site in '''2007'''.}}

Please do not put random links in other peoples' talk posts. It's disruptive and not terribly funny - in addition, we have a rule not to edit other people's posts without a VERY good reason. --Jay (Talk) 10:51, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Subtitles

Hey RickTommy, you've been doing a lot of subtitles recently which is awesome. But I do wonder about the quality. For example, this is how a native speaker edited one of your French subtitles. I see that now you've also tried your hands at German and Turkish subtitles. Please have a read of the translation guidelines. Right in the first paragraph it says "We ask that only skilled users of a language (native speakers or advanced students with real-life experience using the language) create translations for the wiki." Do you fall into that category? Loafing 06:58, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

4chan vandals

Oh, how I hate you, you 4chan vandals! Especially when you edit long-untuoched pages! RickTommy (edits) 03:04, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
