UNIQxxxxxxx-tagnamexxxxxxx

Whatever it is, it seems to have been caused by this edit, in that it worked before then and didn't work after... --phlip TC 01:15, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Indeed, it seems removing the userboxes tower fixes the problem (in Show Preview at least)... I have no idea why though... --phlip TC 02:13, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
This may be some old chat, but I believe it has to do with either {{subst:}} or <nowiki>. I can't remember which one it is. - Super Sam 14:36, 23 April 2006 (UTC)
Bug 1188. I'm pretty sure this is the bug that's causing your problem. It appears to have been fixed in MediaWiki 1.5, but apparently it hasn't. It says in the release notes of MediaWiki 1.6 that this bug has been fixed, so when we upgrade, the problem should be solved. This was a long and probably confusing paragraph. - Super Sam 14:14, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Monobook.css

So, if you create a file called Monobook.css and paste into into User:Yourusername/Monobook.css, does that automatically change your default style? -- Soapergem 21:42, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Yep. You may have to clear your cache for the changes to take effect, but essentially, that's what it does. Unless you have the "Skin" setting in your preferences to something other than MonoBook. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 21:45, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
I tried everything; nothing seems to work. --Sam Goldfish 15:35, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
I'm not sure about this, but I think the problem is that you created the page with a capital letter. Everyone else's (well, almost) begin with the first letter uncapitalised. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 16:12, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Friend code

I managed to change my wi-fi configs. I've now been issued a friend code. It's 3994-9884-4795. I've got a pretty cool town. Checkit-checkit out sometimes. Thanks a lot, I hope to see you soon buying stuff from nookway. That way, I'll finally get nookingtons. — Seriously (Talk) 13:33, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

Oh yeah, my town is willtown. With a lowercase W. — Seriously (Talk) 13:54, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
Hang on a few minutes, have to set up the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection thing on this PC. Is your AC name Seriously or something else? --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 15:45, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
Nah, my name is willdude/ Once again, without the caps. — Seriously (Talk) 15:49, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
The gates are open. Anything else I need to do? — Seriously (Talk) 15:52, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
No, but I'm still having problems on my end. I keep getting error 52003. I'm going to try uninstalling the software, and reinstalling it. Probably take about 10 minutes or so. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 16:01, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
You said you're doing it on your PC. To avoid the problem, couldn';t you just do it on your DS? Sorry, I'm a bit excited. This is my first time doing this stuff. — Seriously (Talk) 16:04, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
I'm using the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, so I have to use my PC. But I think I've fixed the problem now anyway. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 16:12, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
Sweetness. See you there. Hopefully. ;) — Seriously (Talk) 16:12, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
How do you talk? — Seriously (Talk) 16:15, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
Press SELECT. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 16:17, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
Darn. Can't let me go top your town, for some reason. — Seriously (Talk) 16:31, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
Working now. — Seriously (Talk) 16:33, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
Hey, can you open the gates again? Before, I ould go into your town and I would see you sleeping, but I could still do stuff there. But that'sno longer the case. ??? — Seriously (Talk) 22:27, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
Opening now.... --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 22:35, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

The Municipality

Hey there, Venusy. I'd just like to let you know why I reverted your upload of Image:Disconnected Easter egg.PNG. The bigger you make this image, the more pixelated it's going to become. Being already rather grainy in the first place, along with the fact that we really don't need it that much bigger, the upload wasn't really necessary. Thanks for your contribution, though. — Lapper (talk) 21:45, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

Try looking at my archived version, and clear your cache. It's bigger, and without pixellation (except that already present on the smaller image). At least on my PC. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 21:52, 13 March 2006 (UTC)
Apparantly, FireBird's and my eyes were failing. The image looks fine now. Feel free to re-upload this image. — Lapper (talk) 22:01, 13 March 2006 (UTC)
Sometimes (often) when you upload a new image, the old image stays in your cache. Since the HTML contains the width and height of every image, your browser will dutifully show the old (cached) image, scaled up to the new size (which looks awful when the new image has a different aspect ratio to the old one). A hard refresh (on the image page itself, and on a page which has it as a thumbnail) fixes things. action=purge is generally *not* necessary. --phlip TC 16:17, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Reverting vandalism

Hey. Are you able to revert these all yourself? I don't want to confuse you if I'm intruding on your system. I can't do a whole lot right now. If you are able to, revert them all and TBD them. You know the drill. ;) Someone will come by and delete the by-products. —BazookaJoe 15:25, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Nevermind. Looks like we got them all done. Way to go, team! woot. —BazookaJoe 15:45, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Piped Links

Hello, Thanks for catching my errors with Piped Links. I'm new to HRwiki (or any wiki for that matter), and I'm still learning the formatting and etiquette details. Thanks!

Coach Basketball

Venusy, thought I'd point out to you - when you wrote " If Coach B is considered a costume, then basketball head Coach Z should be, regardless of if his head is a basketball, or just jammed into one" you made an error. Coach B is a Character Variation. Does that change your vote? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 18:16, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

See below. And this doesn't change my vote, as I'm assuming Coach Z has somehow got his head stuck in a basketball rather than his head becoming a basketball. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 18:45, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Char var

Hey Venusy. Regarding this edit of yours, I just wanted to point out that Coach B is a variation, not a costume. — It's dot com 18:19, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Not according to Coach Z Other Costumes, which is the only place I bothered checking. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 18:39, 22 March 2006 (UTC)


Hey!

Willdude here! Wanna play ACWW? Captcha's annoying! -Seriously

Hang on while I find a Save Block in M&L:PiT. And connect. Your town or mine? --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 15:05, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
My gates are open now anyway. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 15:23, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
Cool. I'm really sorry I didn't, I really did not have much time to. Anyway, I'll go in your place soon. I just have to do some stuff. Thanks a lot. `24.55.187.201
Just a note: if you do come in, bring an umbrella. Stupid rain... --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 19:40, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Custom sig

Thanks for fixing my sig! But could you make the text after "Finest1" like superscript?

Yeah... Kind of. still a little too long ChrisF talk

Hi, Venusy

Just letting you know, I changed the HTML code in your sig so it would be valid with XHTML/CSS standards and stuff. I just changed the <font> part and added it in with the <span> tag. The style= part was also missing a ';' at the end, which may have been the reason why your sig wouldn't work before in some browsers. Don't worry, your sig should still look exactly the same. Ed smilde/talk 17:12, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

AFJAOBN

In case you didn't know, I changed my sig for part of that day. LePorello / T / C 13:02, 23 April 2006 (UTC)


Thank You!

Thank you SO much for helping me to get my skin back. · · T2|Things 21:39, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

No problem. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 21:44, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Quotes Box

hey dude, mind if i use that quote box you invented? -Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifHomsar7(Hom · Sar)Image:Homsar-in-motion.gif

If you mean the one here, that's fine. I just copied that thing off the main Quote of the Week page anyway. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 01:45, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

AC:WW

Hey Venusy. Long time no see. Can you do me favor? You don't have to, it's not obligatory or anything. But my brother really wants to play with someone on Wi-Fi. I know you'd be wasting your time by doing this, but he just wants to get some cherries and other fruit. It'd be really nice if you could do it, as my brother won't leave me alone. But if you don't have any time, then feel free to decline this. Sincerly [sic], — Seriously (Talk) 13:49, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

I have the time, but I'm not entirely sure where my DS is at the moment. Give me a few minutes to find it. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 13:53, 7 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks a bunch. A quote from My bro: "Venusy is awesome, isn't he?" :P — Seriously (Talk) 13:55, 7 May 2006 (UTC)
Mr brother had a blast. Thanks so much. — Seriously (Talk) 14:16, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

I think I'm missing a font somewhere... That just displays as question marks (in Firefox) and the [] boxes (in IETab). Unless it was meant to do that... --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 17:57, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
It's supposed to be Braille... I guess those characters just aren't in your font... oh well. This is what it looks like to me. --phlip TC 18:38, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
I can't be bothered translating all that, I've just spent 40 minutes comparing your image to the Wikipedia image of the Braille alphabet, and I only got about half way through translating! .Though I think the problem with the last word may just have been a problem with the translator I used. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 19:50, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Other baleeted nonsense

Hey, Venusy, I was just browsing through your April Fool's Jokes and Other Baleeted Nonsense and happened to wonder if this ye olde fake block log might belong there too, in the "From the Sandbox" section. Keep on tranglin'. Heimstern Läufer 14:52, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Fixed

Venusy, I fixed my signature. Why does it matter about the size???? I know it is part of the rules and regulations, but it doesn't really make sense to me. What if someone's signature had to be that long??? See what I mean???

England

I dunno about Ninjas, Lasers, and Gold, I just know of Tubes, Fancy Stores, and Protesters, but your map must be right because I'm proud of my Guinness and Fighting!

I live in a small village in the muddle of nowhere so we don't have Tubes (we have the Internet, but it's hard to even find a bus service around here), Fancy Stores (the best we have is a Co-op and a SPAR) or Protesters (not worth their effort to protest here). --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 03:10, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

I downloaded all the source files, how do I play the game (if you know how...). Visorbot 386 16:45, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

If you've put them all in the correct folder, then double click stinkogame.swf. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 17:53, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

About qotw...

I followed your instructions, and whenever I open the .swf, it just shows me a white screen and when I right click, it says "movie not loaded..." I waited for about half an hour too. Any suggestions? --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 18:05, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Weclome Back

Welcome back to the wiki, Venusy. Any reason you haven't been going on the wiki for the past 4 months? Homestar-Winner (talk) 22:53, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

No real reason, I was just busy and needed a break for a while. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 00:22, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

IRL Help

Being that you're in the UK, you might be in a position to help me with something. The topic is not HR related, so the wiki is not the place to discuss it. Would you be willing to e-mail me to provide me with your e-mail address so I can go into more detail? If you're not willing, that's totally fine, too. Let me know! OptimisticFool 20:02, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Forget I brought this up here. I thought I had tried to use the "E-mail this user" link from your page and it hadn't worked.. but now I see it does work. So, yeah, I've e-mailed you directly now. OptimisticFool 20:20, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
I'm not too interested, given a type of scam that used to be popular here (people set up a phone number that costs £50-ish per minute). Google give you nothing if you type the number in? --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 20:47, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
Nothing. OptimisticFool 00:58, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
But you did put me onto something; you're right.. I've found that numbers beginning as this one does (i.e. with 44 7xx) often cost money to call and can rediret anywhere in the world. So, uh... abort mission! =] OptimisticFool 01:08, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Mock Quotes of the Week

Can I do some mock QOTW, like what DorianGray has done? At the top of that list, it says that the user borrowed your idea with permission. Can I do it, too? MHarrington 19:49, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Yes, you don't need my permission to do that. Especially since I'm a lot less active here than I used to be. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 21:41, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
