The last Don

I noticed on Limo-zeen page Perry_Palaroncini, you mentioned Don Chapman and Donnie Chapman. Are these 2 different people? If so further explanation, or this will be really confusing. I R F 16:05, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

Good question--I'm confused as well; I think the claim is that Don Chapman (father) played Perry in the E-cards but Donnie Chapman (brother) played Perry in monster truck.Trey56 16:09, 21 October 2005 (UTC)
I think they both play him. — talk Bubsty edits 03:16, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

Greetings

Just stopped by and I felt like saying hello.--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifImage:The-cheat-small.pngHomsarroksImage:kookysig.gif 21:49, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for the chocolates. Trey56 21:22, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Sig characters

Hey *****6. Just so you know, ever since you changed your signature, the first five characters don't show up. I have a pretty standard configuration with quite a few fonts, so it's likely that a lot of other users are experiencing the same thing. Cheers! — **'* *** **m 17:21, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip! let's see if this helps: Trey56 17:29, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
That did the trick! :) — It's dot com

Reverting massive page moves

Wait. Don't do that. — It's dot com 03:25, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

Yeah sorry, I thought I was going to help, and I realized it was a lost cause. Trey56 03:26, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
I did that once too. Sorry if I messed up the process. — Lapper (talk) 03:28, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
I got it all straightened out, and Jay and I just finished deleting all the pages. If that happens, just hang tight and wait for a sysop, 'cause you won't be able to fix it completely without deleting something. Sorry if I was abrupt, by the way. I didn't know what your plan was, and time was of the essence. Thanks for trying, though. Keep on tranglin'! :) — It's dot com 03:45, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
Out of curiosity, I thought we blocked Homestar walker a long long time ago. --DorianGray
Unless the logs were cleared somewhere along the way, it looks like the answer is no. As you can see, the only logs he has are moves. — Lapper (talk) 03:51, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
I changed that link to point to his block. — It's dot com
Oh, no problem...I entirely understand. I'm just glad all those pages got sorted out! Trey56 04:57, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

My babel Tower!

THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU!!!!!-glompglomp- Thank you! --אוקאלייליי (Ookelaylay)

You're welcome! Trey56 20:36, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

tanx oo

for templating my gifs... how do you do that??? sry for being a noob =( csours 20:57, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

For one of your two personal images, you add the line "{{personal-image|Csours}}" to the description. For your signature image, you add "{{personal-image-sig|Csours}}". If you ever want to abandon one of your images, add "{{personal-image-abandoned|Csours}}". Trey56 21:06, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
p.s., check out this page for more information. Trey56 21:08, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

500 The Cheats

Well, I don't care what anyone thinks...I liked it. Trey56 14:00, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

just wondering, who would i ask to get an official opinion about that? cause the homsar does move fast, but thats how fast he moves irl too (lol, irl). ill see what i can do... csours 04:30, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
I guess it's dot com would be the guy to ask, since he's the one who wrote the bit about the signature images. He clarified this comment a little on this page, indicating that he doesn't mind animated sig images, as long as they're not too distracting. I don't know, maybe it was fine the other way--they'll probably tell you if not! Anyway, sorry for the bother. Best, Trey56 05:14, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Interesting edit summary

You're messing with our minds, Trey. You're messing with our minds. ;) — It's dot com 00:16, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Indeed. -- Tom 02:30, 21 April 2006 (UTC)
I know--Stupid autofill! I meant to include "reword" as the edit summary, but my web browser thought it was so smart and reused this edit summary. I clicked "Save page" too early. I was wondering if anyone would notice! Trey56 14:26, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Sweet User Page

Nice User Page. If my computer wasn't so frustratingly slow, perhaps I'd have something as awesome. Maybe I'll get a userbox. But enough about me, no one wants to hear about that anyway... -RadSkat3 20:09, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks! If you need any help when you're working on your user page, just let me know. Trey56 20:16, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Closing stuff

Hey there. I find that it's easier to close the STUFF item before making the archive. (To get the code, I just go one back in the history.) That way, you eliminate the (slim) possibility of someone changing the item between the time you archive it and close it, plus it gives you a handy red link to follow if the archive page is new. Keep on tranglin'! — It's dot com 19:04, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

That's a good idea — thanks for the tip! Trey56 19:07, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

NES Endings Trivia Challenge

10 August 2006

"It's a showdown going downtown..."

Hey, Trey! How about Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! from montage? Do I win eternal happiness now?!?!?  Loafing 20:42, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes! You should start feeling something in a couple minutes. Well done. Trey56 20:44, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

15 August 2006

StarTropics, which of course takes place in the the tropics (more specifically, Chapter 4 takes place in the belly of the whale). -- Tom 21:17, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Very nice! Trey56 23:54, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

22 August 2006

In Stinkoman 20X6: The Pi Pi Pi robot from Bionic Commando. In levels 3, 5 and 10.  Loafing 21:38, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Bionic Commando. Referenced in levels three, five, and nine of Stinkoman 20X6. -- Tom 21:43, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes, yes, and yes. Since Tom provided the specific information about the location within Stinkoman 20X6, I'm going to split the happiness two ways. Trey56 21:52, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
Yay!  Loafing 22:14, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

29 August 2006

The sword of fire. Clearly.

Crystalis featured five swords: wind, fire, water, thunder, and Crystalis. The one toon that used thunder that I can think of is Homestarloween Party. -- Tom 02:04, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Whoa that looks pretty convincing, Tom. Loafing 02:08, 2 September 2006 (UTC)
Of course, apart from the fact that thunder has also been featured elsewhere on the site: Stinkoman 20X6 Walkthrough Level 9. Wind, fire and water are featured more than once, too. Neither "Crystalis" nor crystal seem to have made an appearance anywhere. I think there was some halloween toon where Marzipan was using a crystal ball to see in the future. But I can't find it. Maybe I made it up. Loafing 02:34, 2 September 2006 (UTC) Addendum: Lappy has Liquid Crystal Display. That rules at "crystal" as well.
My question was intended to mean, "which word has appeared only once on the site," in which case "thunder" is the only one of the five words that has appeared exactly once--in the Scrolling Shooter Games Menu ("Rolling Cheat thunder"). So, even though it was a poorly worded question, you certainly came up with the one that has appeared in any form the least amount of times, Tom (not counting Crystalis, which naturally has never appeared on the site). So, great job figuring out the name of this less well-known game, and sorry for the confusing question. Trey56 06:12, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

5 September 2006

Howard Philips would be proud
I'm not totally sure, but I'm thinking Dragon Warrior. --Jay (Talk) 19:22, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
You're right — any ideas about the associated trivia question? Trey56 19:33, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
Heh, I hadn't even looked at the question. And... I dunno. --Jay (Talk) 19:47, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
That's fine — to get you (or anyone else) started on the trivia, there are places on the internet that keep track of video game credits... Trey56 19:51, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
To answer #1: Howard Philips founded Nintendo Power... --Jay (Talk) 19:54, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
And, going strictly from Wikipedia, I do believe that the answer to #2 is a bowtie. --Jay (Talk) 19:59, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
And, going strictly from memory, this would make #3's answer Halloween Fairstival, through SB's Joker costume. I think. --Jay (Talk) 20:02, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
You're right about everything but the last part — there is a more recent toon that includes several bowties... Trey56 20:05, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
I know nothing of old-skool videro games, but bowties we're porminent in senior prom. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 20:36, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
Yep. Here's the summary of what I was thinking of:
Dragon Warrior is the Japanese RPG that started it all. This game's popularity exploded in Japan but would probably never have reached American markets if Nintendo Power Editor-in-Chief Howard Philips hadn't fought so hard for it. Howard Philips is fondly remembered for his Howard & Nester comics and for his ever-present bow tie. Bow ties appear several times in senior prom.
Well done to both of you (and in record time). Trey56 21:01, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

12 September 2006

The game is Batman featuring Batman. The screenshot is from just before The Joker dies. The Joker has been featured on homestarrunner.com when Strong Bad dressed as Cesar Romero as The Joker in Halloween Fairstival. -- Tom 06:29, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Great jorb! Trey56 06:34, 15 September 2006 (UTC)
By the way, after a second viewing under the tutelage of Pom Pom's keen eyes, if you look closely in the screenshot just to the left of the tallest tower, you can see a small purple blob — that's actually the Joker falling... Trey56 06:47, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

31 October 2006

I can't stop thinking about ninjas!

It's dot com is the administrator most like a ninja (he is a ninja, really), just like Ryu in Ninja Gaiden. -- Tom 16:15, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

That's right — I would have accepted either Dot Com or Phlip as acceptable answers for that one. Ah, Ninja Gaiden. Such a good game. Trey56 20:09, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

7 November 2006

(clockwise from the upright bass player)

 -- Tom 15:51, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Right, and Saint Basil's Cathedral was referenced in — oh wait, never mind. Good work, once again! Trey56 17:01, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

15 November 2006

Googly-eyed meekness
Good Prize?
Most Improved!

The game is Spiritual Warfare. As for the weapons, on homestarrunner.com we've got a pear, an apple/Puppet Jam: Apple Juice Blues/Stinko-apple, a bag of four grapes/The Grape Fairie/Grape-Nuts Robot, and a banana with an arrow through it/banana phone. No pomegranate, but plenty of Pom Pom... -- Tom 07:23, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Boo yah! (as they say) One of the more obscure NES titles I've got laying around. This game was produced by one of the few companies to make unlicensed games for the NES without being sued, probably for fear of public outcry. Trey56 07:34, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
In Spiritual Warfare I was thinking about the other weapons
Belt of Truth - Peasant's Quest Game
Breastplate of Righteousness
Boots of Preparation - New Boots
Sword of the Spirit - Trogdor the Game.
Helmet of Salvation - Peasant's Quest Trailer
Shield of Faith - In Search of the Yello Dello DVD
I R F 13:20, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
Wow, I hadn't thought about that; good work! Trey56 17:27, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
Do I get Good Prize? I R F 18:01, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
After careful consideration of your contributions, I've posted your prize on your talk page. Nice job! Trey56 19:41, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

22 November 2006

The game is Trog!. The Peasant's Quest Movie Trailer toon not only contained a Stop Motion scene (like the gameplay of the game), but also contained the Pterodactyl (a dinosaur, like Bloop) and Jhonka (a caveman-ish guy, like Spike). -- Tom 22:42, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

You're right about the game, but there's a toon that very directly resembles the gameplay of Trog: it features a dinosaur fighting with cavemen... Trey56 23:31, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

French subtitles

Hi Trey. I saw you did some edits to the French subtitles, saying that there were "superfluous spaces". Allow me to clear this : in French, we put spaces after some of the punctuation. For example we put a space before (and after, of course) "!" and "?", as in "J'aime Homestar Runner ! Et toi ?".
It's a simple rule but it's not like that in English, so I understand why you tought I messed up with the spaces. But trust me, for a French reader it will be more clear with spaces like that.
But thanks for your help anyway ^^ I'll go translate some more... --Meuhcoin 15:43, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Oh. And here I thought I was doing you a favor. Sorry about that! Trey56 15:52, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Sniff

I liked your old siggy.  Loafing 22:25, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks — I was just trying to conform to the signature policies...on the other hand, if I have the approval of a sysop, then maybe it's okay the other way :) Trey56 23:56, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
What! No exceptions unless you pay me five bucks! Hmmm, the policies state that "preferably a signature would include no more than one image", so it would be acceptable to have two. It's a bit tougher on animated images, which are "strongly discouraged". As a sysop, I do encourage users to follow these recommendations. But on the other hand, your old siggy did conform to the rules, just not the recommendations; so there was nothing wrong with it ;-)  Loafing 01:03, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
Hm. Well, what do you think about the following idea for a new sig?
Image:UserLoafingSig.png T Image:UserLoafingSig.png R Image:UserLoafingSig.png E Image:UserLoafingSig.png Y Image:UserLoafingSig.png 5 Image:UserLoafingSig.png 6 Image:UserLoafingSig.png 01:16, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
Eh, I guess I kind of changed it on a whim; I'll probably change it to the old one. Or this new "loafified" one.
Doode! It's too long!
Image:UserLoafingSig.png T Image:UserLoafingSig.png R Image:UserLoafingSig.png E Image:UserLoafingSig.png Y Image:UserLoafingSig.png 5 Image:UserLoafingSig.png 6 Image:UserLoafingSig.png
You'll have to go with your old one, then ;-)  Loafing 01:22, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
Nuts, and I really had my heart set on all those tiny loaves...*sigh* ;) Trey56 01:23, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Testing parserfunction

Let's see if this works... Trey56 05:23, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Bwoken

I think your sig blew up... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 09:27, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

It could have something to do with the HRWiki:autocolumn there. Dot com might have an idea on what's up. -- Tom 16:08, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
Well, it's definitely the autocolumn. I'll work on debugging it in a bit. — It's dot com 16:54, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
Sorry! I'm sure it is the autocolumn (it works everywhere else, and wasn't there another problem with another function in autocolumns?) For now, I'll just replace my sig on that page with the appropriate text. Trey56 19:21, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

Congratuidontcareaboutspelling

What a great prize this is version 3.69

Hey! Tanx 4 fixin' my userbox! Here is your reward (:P It's that guy, who does that stuff! 18:30, 07 November 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for this glorious prize! It has... all the goldness of a bowl... without any of the bowlness of a gold. :D Trey56 23:42, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Sig

This one's for U!

I kinda want my sig to look like this: Homestar's head, HeyMama in Homsar's shirt font, SB's head, and a jpg of the cheat whit a glowstick that leads to my talk page; if possible thanks!
