Hi man! You are a member of that wiki, right? Have you seen the article about us? I know it's a parody wiki, but why center around the vandals? I don't have problem about the 30 year olds arguing with childern, which is kinda true. But the part inviting people to troll? Bugh! Can you please fix it?

ACH! E.L., hey - I haven't checked this in a while, but I'll take a look. I can't promise anything, but the article is over the line, I see what I can do. THE SMOKING MONKEY 11:51, 20 February 2006 (UTC)


Ha ha! That term is priceless! I may steal it someday (without giving credit). I also like what you did with the conversation above, which, strangely, is much better than the original. I commented out my, er, comments there, because they seemed too serious in light of the revised wording. (For those of you wondering, I told Seriously and The thing to take their private chat somewhere besides a third party's user space, and I expressed my embarrassment that anyone, especially someone from here, would vandalize a wiki and then brag about it.) By the way, Dave, I'm sure you know this but I'll say it anyway: We don't like blocking people here; recently it just seems people are going out of their way to try and get blocked.

Ahoy, Ben, glad you liked the article and the new acronym. I decided, hey, if anyone had a good idea of the workings of HRWiki and how to lampoon them, it'd be me. Especially since the one that was there was mean. And stupid. Stupid and mean. You guys don't deserve that, so I did my best to fix it.
The "banning" theme struck me as a great comedy vein - I do know how the wiki was crippled not too long ago by that auto-vandal or whatever that NMSC thing was, and there are certainly enough clowns trolling through here that need to be banned. No argument there. But you have to agree, HRWiki: You Might Not Get Banned! is a great slogan. Well, I'm off to mock the elderly, keep on tranglin' yourself, THE SMOKING MONKEY 18:53, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
I did notice that quite a bit of the article was dead-on accurate. I thought that kind of thing was frowned upon over there. ;) All four of the user subcategories are funny (and eerily true), but I especially like the following one. — It's dot com 19:26, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
Normal Users
75% of HRWiki users fall into this category. Normal users is somewhat of a misnomer, as these are people who voluntarily choose to document a website. Like, not a movie, or a celebrity, or a television show, or a book. Like, holy crap, a website. Normal HRWiki users are all "gnomes" and aspire one day to be sysops, which they will never be. These folks actually know what The Cheat is saying and delight in organizing, re-organizing, and re-re-organizing things until they are "just right" and then re-organizing them again.

*What happened to the other five archives, you ask? Curiously, they have been eaten by a grue. Grues do that, you know.
