Hi, sam the man. You posted recently on my talk page, something like editing with a wiki account... I didn't quite understand. BTW, if it's not too much of a hassle, something went wrong when i was editing in my userbox. It's coming along well, but could you check it?

(sigh) I'm having technical difficulties with my userbox again... I took your advice and put that little |} thing after my box, and I'm not sure what I did wrong. You're a great guy because you go around the site telling people like me how to fix their stuff. [[user:haldo]]

Hey, good call on that revert. I want to point out this discussion where we thought about how best to express this. Maybe you saw it, if so I'm just being redundant. Remember, you can link TTATOT in edit summaries to make it easier. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:12, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

A Cool Person

Haldo there, Sam The Man. I made a "cool people" list today, and I thoght I'd let you know that I put you on it. I think you are a good, helpful user to this wiki. Plus I liked when you made me your MVU. Eat a steak, Homestar-Winner (talk) 03:19, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Welcome to the homsarmy!

A Small Request

Can I be added to your Hall of Fame, in return for letting you use the design of my toolbox? Please pretty please with a glass of Melonade? – The Chort 19:22, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Sure you can. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 21:31, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
Hey sam, I also want to be on your hall of fame, i know i'm already on it, but can i be on it for a different reason, like somthing about my person of the week, or letting you be the homsarmy's coronel? i dunno, i'm just saying putting people on your cool list because they join your alliance is kinda weird.--Kanjiro talk 00:08, 14 July 2007 (UTC)
"He also asked me too"? Great, now I look like a jerk. Thanks for adding me anyway! – The Chort 17:06, 15 July 2007 (UTC)


If I'm anything, I'm a baseball player. But I'm also honest and I have to give credit to User:DeFender1031 for making Cheese. I just cut it.

Now that I think about it...

I do have a question. Or, alot of questions.

1. How can I get an image from the regular wikipedia and make it an embedded image on my page?

2. How can I get a custom image from a toon? (Or a not so custom image.)

3. How can I get one o' thems Userboxes?

4. How did A-Rod improve so much in one season's length and do you think he's consistent enough to pass Hank Aaron?

5. Are 13 year-olds allowed to be admins?

6. How do I get a signature? (Or sig. in abbrev.)

Also, you are my third "rockin' cool guy on the HRWiki". (Technically you're second but that's just the order.) SantanaHomerunner P.S. It's very bare on my page. Don't peek! I could use some ideas on how to fill it with crap.

I will answer your questions.
  • 1: On wikipedia, you click on the image that you want to upload, which we will bring to the image page. Then you right click on the image and click on "Save Image As..." and save at as the name you want your picture to be. Save it in the "Documents" section. On this wiki, click on "Upload Image" and when it says "Source Filename". Right next to it says "Browse". Click on that. Chose "Documents" (Judging if it already is in Documents) and double click on the image that you want. It will have the name of your settings + Documents setting in source filename and will have the name of the image below source filename. Write a little description (Optional) in Summery and click Upload and you have uploaded a wikipedia image!
  • 2: First, see the toon or email you want at right at the screenshot you want press "Print Screen" and youi have an image waiting to be uploaded. The next step is optional with either MS Paint or Irfanview. To get Irfanview (which is what I use) [ Google] Irfanviw. Then download it. You will now have a desktop thing saying Irfanviw looking like roadkill. (Pardon my foul words) Then click on the tab Edit on the Irfanviw desktop item then click Paste on it. Click and drag your mouse over the part of the picture you want and click on Edit again and select Crop Selection. Then click on Files then Save Image As... Do the same process you did for last part of uploading wikipedian images and you have uploaded a image!
  • 3: You might want to click on HRWiki:Userboxes on anybody's userbox tower and they kind of have a little totourial there.
  • 4: I guess A-Rod just practiced a lot.
  • 5: You will have to ask a sysop or admin for that answer.
  • 6: See Help:Signature

I hope that helped a lot for you. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 23:45, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Talk Posts

Hey, S to the M. Regarding this edit: we generally do not edit the talk posts of other users. It's just a no-no. Instead, in that case you could have left a follow-up post with your link. Wiki's awesome, wiki's weird, and I'll never forget the way it was, girl. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 13:47, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Signature Help

Hey Sam,

I'm working on improving my userpage and my sig, and I was wondering: How do I make the picture in my sig link to my talkpage? If you're confused, I want it so someone can click on the Hot Wheels logo in my sig, and it will take them to my talkpage. Like when you click on the SB head in your sig, it links you to your talkpage. If/when you get an answer, post it on my talkpage.

Homestarmy Commando1 14:07, 15 July 2007 (UTC)


Hey man. Thanks for the awesome answers and the info. Here's my sig. Super!SantanaDuper! It's simple, I know but that's how I roll. Also I made some new articles but I'm still just a bit confused with getting an image out of a toon. I paused it and brought up the print menu but from there I'm having trouble. I got IrfanView by the way. So don't waste your time telling me what to do just yet because I'm pretty good at figuring stuff out. P.S. Everything is fine except getting the paused image to become a saved image. I'll try printing it to a file and I think it'll work.

Alright I need help now. I tried it. Super!SantanaDuper!
I'm glad everything is going good for you. Oh, I forgot one thing. When you want the part of the toon in which you want the image, you hold down shift and at the same time print screen. Try that before you ask me another question. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 12:02, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Recent vandalism

Explain this, please. — It's dot com 14:22, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Sorray for the late rely. What do you mean explain this? I had nothing to do with that. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 18:27, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
I have evidence showing you vandalizing as an anonymous user yesterday and immediately reverting what you'd done using your username. Then you thanked Trey56 when the IP you were using—the same IP you used to write the reply above—finally got blocked. This morning you created a vandal account. In the logs, I can see you switching from your real account to the one you just created. Right now is your chance to admit what you were doing. If you lie to me, it will only make this worse for you. — It's dot com 19:09, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
Your right! It was me! I just wanted to be noticed. After all, every popular wiki user has thier page vandalized once. I used the computer from my Mom's work for the IP Address and vandalized my page and ( I was being really stupid) your page to make it look like I was just vandalizing my page. Then next morning I was stupid enough to create a sockpuppet so I could vandalise my page and Has Matt kept reverting it so I made realilistic nd trolled his page again. I am sorry to you Dot Com, and sorry to you Has Matt, and everyone that looked up to me. I as only trying to experiment, I ment no harm. But what I did was wrong. Punish me, I deserve it. From the wiki user formally known as Sam the Man.
Well, I appreciate that you owned up to what you did. Because you admitted it, we are only going to block you for one week instead of longer. I know the desire to fit in is a strong motivator, but we obviously can't have people going around vandalizing, no matter the reason. Even if you hadn't gotten caught, would that box on your user page really have been satisfying, anyway? In the back of your mind, you'd always know it's fake. I hope the lesson you learn from all this is that the wiki is not a toy. If you want to be recognized for your contributions, then you must do so in a constructive and positive manner. See ya after the flashback! — It's dot com 23:42, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
In regards to all this... I would have one thing to say to you, Sam, (you know, this basically happened to me once long ago[ish]) and that is to NEVAH MESS WIT' DA BIG DOGS! You will never get away with it. So now, just suck it up, and breathe anew..... --TheYellowDart(t/c) 15:32, 26 July 2007 (UTC) BTW, if you want more apologies, I forgive you. P.S.S. Dot Com is a genius.


Greetings User SAM THE MAN!If you've kept up with current events,I am releasing a story on a wedsite,and putting the link on my user page.On my talk page,there is going to be a party held in honor of said event.I hope you can make it to the talk page party.The party will starty at 8:00 PM EST Friday night.It will last an hour,at which the talk page will return to normal.Hope to see you there!

You moved X Had the Ball at the Top of the Key to Top Of The Key claiming that it had been "decided on the talk page". 2 comments is hardly a consensus. Please wait for a bit more before you take such a large action. — Defender1031*Talk 18:49, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

-Horrible Painting Chaos "77" story writer. 00:48, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

I don't really get any of the names? Plus, if we join forces that means there will be no more homsarmy, strong bad alliegence, or cheat commandoes, we would just be one big super group.--Kanjiro talk 01:00, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Good point.How a bout we Just call ourselves the On point Kings?I like that lots!

-Horrible Painting Chaos "77" story writer. 01:04, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

That still makes no sense. And also when you punctuate a sentence like this. place a space after the period or whatever, not like this here.You see? --Kanjiro talk 01:09, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
Sorry. Force of habit. Fine We'll make a new name. If we can think of any. How about the Big super group? It's just like you said. That's what we are. -Horrible Painting Chaos "77" story writer. 01:11, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
Also when you reply on a talk page you put a colon at the beginning of your sentence to indent, and if some body indents before you, you put two colons, so on and so forth. --Kanjiro talk 01:34, 31 July 2007 (UTC) ps- I fixed you sentence up a little.
Fine. Is this good? Now, about the name. What do you think about it? -Horrible Painting Chaos "77" story writer. 01:36, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
Well, no, you want to put your sig right after your sentence and not below your sentence.--Kanjiro talk 01:41, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
O.K. Everything's perfect. Now, Tell me what you think about the name that I made up.-Horrible Painting Chaos "77" story writer. 01:42, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
What name?--Kanjiro talk 01:44, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
The big super group. I thought of it and put it on, but then you added all the punctuational lessons. It's still there. Just backtrack a little. But yeah. What do you think of it?-Horrible Painting Chaos "77" story writer. 01:46, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
Oh, that, what I'm trying to say is that i didn't want our groups to fuse when i said join forces, i just wanted our groups to be friends and like, fight evil or something together.--Kanjiro talk 01:59, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
Oh. Well. I guess that'll work. I'm gonna add a hobbies list on my user page. Laters. -Horrible Painting Chaos "77" story writer. 02:03, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Filmography pages

Hey there, Sam. I noticed you're hard at work making filmography pages for many of the Sweet Cuppin' Cakes characters from mini-golf. But the necessity of those filmographies is currently pending discussion, so you may need to stop. Don't undo your work because we may end up accepting the new pages, but just as a precaution, you should wait for the discussion to come to consensus first. Talk atcha later, — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 12:22, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

I've only made one Filmography page for Sweet Cuppin' Cakes. It's The Wheelchair. I craeted it before you had that discussion on the Main Page. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 12:24, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
Okay then, that's cool. Great job on it, too. But in case the community decides to delete them, your work shouldn't go to waste. — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 12:39, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

User:DeFender1031/Character Relationships

I just noticed you fixed one of the links for me. Thanks! Feel free to do so in the future. Just so you know, every link on there would need 2 fixes, because each link appears twice. Trangle it onward! (or something) — Defender1031*Talk 20:35, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

How do you know how many visits you have had?

The title speaks for itself.--Super!SantanaDuper! 15:02, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

At the bottom of each page at the wiki, it says "This page has been accessed (How many page views you have) times." Check the bottom of my talk page once your done reading the reply and see how many page views I have. Same goes to every other wiki page. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 15:05, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Substituting templates

Hey Sam. It's good that you finally substituted your welcome template, but now you need to remove "Note: This not in use anymore. Please understand not to delete." from all of those pages and put two </div>s at the end of your welcome to close the formatting. Thanks. — It's dot com 16:21, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi, Sam, thanks for making those FA writeups. If you do more, don't forget that you need to include a link to the article at the bottom with the text (more...) like I've done here. Thanks, and keep on tranglin'. Heimstern Läufer 04:10, 2 October 2007 (UTC)


Why did you revert this edit? — Defender1031*Talk 20:15, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Obviously didn't check that hard. Won't happen again. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 20:17, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
Don't forget in the future to always give a reason for your revert; just "no" doesn't really explain it sufficiently. Have a good day. Heimstern Läufer 20:25, 2 October 2007 (UTC)


Hi, Sam: the message you have on your userpage in big letters taunting vandals isn't helpful to the wiki. Such messages are likely only to egg vandals on, not stop them. The best way to handle vandals is to revert them and, beyond that, to ignore them. I'd ask you to consider removing that message. Thanks. Heimstern Läufer 06:29, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Your Awards Subpage

Hey there, StM. Please have a look at our policy for subpages. User:Sam the Man/awards is not OK, according to our policy. Please save the contents if you want, and then put "{{delete}}" at the top of that page to mark it for deletion. Thanks for understanding. Loafing 20:14, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Okay, I'll put a delete thing on it. Also I'll put an awards section on my talk page. Thanks Loafy! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:43, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
But if you put it at the bottom of your page, the next time a user makes a new post it will be below your awards. Maybe you should move it to the top. Homestar-Winner (talk) 22:55, 5 October 2007 (UTC)


Da Iron Cup Award!

Hey, Sam. I saw you've been making tons of good edits, like creating Europa-pean Lobster, Trog-Cave, and all those other pages you created. So, I wanted to award you (drumroll...) THE IRON CUP OF BRUNSWICK STEW.

This award, the first on HRWiki, is given to recognize good contributions and to let people know that their hard work is seen and appreciated. It was given to The Cheat by Strong Bad for his good work on New Boots.

Keep up the awesome work, Sam! Dr. Clash 23:19, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Uploading new versions of old files

What up, Sam? I just want to point out that there is a link on every Image page that says, "Upload a new version of this file." You can use that to upload an improved version of the same image without changing the name of the image (and creating duplicate images). Also, make sure you check the upload log before uploading an image of a new shirt, toon, etc. Thanks man. —BazookaJoe 17:48, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Just to tell you, I uploaded the Wind-em up Homestar shirts image before the other one was uploaded. Sam the Man

You actually need two </div>s. I also think that this canned template needs to go. "Play your cards right and maybe you'll become a sysop too"? That's nonsense. And the fact that you leave {{PAGENAME}} visibile in the wikicode seems very impersonal to me. If you want to give a welcome, then take a minute each time and actually write one. — It's dot com 21:53, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Each post here says something new and essential for Sam to understand; we're not trying to "hammer it in." If I could combine this all into one post so that it didn't feel like people were piling onto him, then I would, but alas that's not how it works. Sam, we are not trying to gang up on you here, and no one's saying you're not a good and enthusiastic user, but you do need to adjust the way you welcome people. — It's dot com 22:14, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
Please stop critisising me. I've gotten all this. It's been from Day 1 of my wiki experience. You've been telling me what to do. Giving me orders. I'm not liking that. I might as well perminetly move to The Fanstuff Wiki. No, I'm not yelling at you. I'm just telling you what's on my mind. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 00:33, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
No one is criticizing, we're just letting you know what the order of things is around here. It's not a bad thing, i've been here for over a year and i'm still getting messages letting me know how to do things correctly every so often. Please don't get discouraged, you're a good editor and I'm sure i speak for the whole community when i say i wouldn't want to lose you. — Defender1031*Talk 00:37, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, Sam, we're not trying to criticize you. Calm down a bit, buddy. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 00:50, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

I just think the Sysops are picking on me. On my welcome messege, I'm trying to encourege new users. Telling them good edits can be great. I'm trying to give them the encouregement I never really got when I started out. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 00:56, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
WHAT!?! You CAN'T leave! Sorry about all the times I've corrected your problems, but you are one of my favorite users (thus explaining why I look at all your edits). Please consider staying. Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:59, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Sam, no one is picking on you, we're just trying to help. I understand what you are trying to do, but don't you think that an actual, thought-out welcome is warmer and friendlier than some template? I know i would prefer it if i were a new user. — Defender1031*Talk 01:06, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Good job, Samstray. Homestar-Winner (talk) 01:47, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Hey Sam, good job with the new welcoming scheme, it's improved a lot. I'd like to say that you could make it even better by making them more personal. I've seen the same welcome message from you on several users' pages, and I think it would be more appropriate if you were to type a new message for each, based on the person. Like... for example, you could welcome User:TheGirl with something like "hey, now Marzipan's not the only girl!" or something cute like that. Something personal will make people feel a lot more encouraged than they would from just a generic message (after all, we could just have the bot put up a generic message). I've seen your creativity at work many times, so why don't you go ahead and use it for welcoming people as well? Wouldn't you feel more welcomed with a message saying "Everybody says you're the man, I want to be the man too!" than you would with just "welcome to the wiki, I'm your guide, here's my talk page"? — Defender1031*Talk 20:12, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Sam: nice work :) Trey56 21:47, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Stay or Go?

For what it's worth, Sam the Man, I consider you to be "part of the furniture" around here (to use a line from Oliver!). You have solid opinions; hang around. I want to keep seeing that buttdance in your sig. =] OptimisticFool 04:31, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Stay! King of wikis 04:57, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Alright. I'll stay! Cold Ones on my! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 17:26, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Yay buttdance! Like the rhythm's down your pants now! OptimisticFool 05:36, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Hey there!

Thanks for the welcome Sam! You think you can help me get my page organized like youres?-DIZZYZAP478

Sure. What do you need? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 11:36, 27 October 2007 (UTC)


My name was just random.:-)Rinop 21:31, 27 October 2007 (UTC)-Template:User;Rhinop/sig5;30 pm (ET)

An unwelcome welcome

Sam, please stop posting on Rinop's talk page. His response to you may not have been the most polite, but pestering him isn't going to help. If I were you, I'd just move on and not worry about it. Trey56 22:24, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Sam, when a sysop tells you to stop, that means stop. It doesn't mean keep posting on the other user's page. — It's dot com 22:25, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
Okay Trey56 and It's dot com. I'll stop. If vandalizes my page, block him. He's personally attacking me after I'm try to help him/her. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:26, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
Sam, if someone doesn't respond well to a welcome, then you need to back off—immediately. I know you wanted to explain yourself to that new user, but it wasn't helping. You're coming across as too pushy. People who are interested in having a custom signature will ask about it in their own time, at their own pace. You don't need to force it on them. We need you to be less of the in-your-face car salesman and more like the nice person at the reference desk at the library. You know, the one who politely answers your questions if you have any but otherwise stays completely out of your way. I know you're trying to help, and I appreciate that, but before you do more welcoming I think you need to think about how you can be more tactful. — It's dot com 22:45, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
So that's what I'll work on. Thanks It's dot com! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:48, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Sam, stop editing his page, even if he's attacking you. We will handle it. Leave him completely alone for a while. — It's dot com 22:49, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Okay. I'll leave him alone. But what if vandalizes my userpage. Then can I revert that. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:50, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
Nope, just let other people handle it for the time being, please. Trey56 22:52, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
He just swore. On his talk page! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:52, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
Never mind. To the Fanstuff Wiki! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:53, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

When I said "a while", I meant a lot longer than 34 minutes. More like a week. In fact, you should not speak to him again unless he speaks to you first, and even then only if he's posting friendly conversation. — It's dot com 23:51, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

(Moved here from User talk:It's dot com)

He is insulting me again. Could you please talk to him. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 17:35, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm sorry It's dot com. I spoke to Rinop. Please make him stop insulting me. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 17:45, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
(Moved here from User talk:Trey56)

Trey, I know I can't talk to Rinop. But he's insulting. Can't I defend myself? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 17:58, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Sam, in this case, it's very important that you not post on Rinop's talk page, under any circumstances. I know that the situation is frustrating for you, but when you post on his talk page, it only exacerbates the problem further. Don't worry, others will handle it. Thanks very much for your compliance, Trey56 18:05, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
Okay. Just as long as I'm not blocked, I'll be fine. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 18:09, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Could you rephrase that?

Hi, sam the man. You posted recently on my talk page, something like editing with a wiki account... I didn't quite understand. BTW, if it's not too much of a hassle, something went wrong when i was editing in my userbox. It's coming along well, but could you check it? Haldo 12:48, 3 November 2007 (UTC) user:haldo :)

I mean it's not really a good thing to sign your wiki user name using your IP Address. But you can do that. Just giving you future advice. And I fixed your userbox thing. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 12:52, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

(sigh) I'm having technical difficulties with my userbox again... I took your advice and put that little |} thing after my box, and I'm not sure what I did wrong. You're a great guy because you go around the site telling people like me how to fix their stuff. user:haldo
