[edit] Question

Why weekly featured articles instead of daily featured articles? We're supposed to feature every article on the site - and we'll do it quicker with daily articles. User:| 06:53, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Because not every article is up to snuff yet. Also, there is very little to write on some articles, especially list-based ones. Further, we'd probably run out fairly quickly if we did articles every day instead of every week. We only have about 1900. Even if we could find something to write on every article, we'd run out in about 5 years. And then what would we do? --DorianGray 06:59, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Lucky Yates Show

Why are there three non-talk page links to the Lucky Yates Show, but the article had never been created? I would create it, but I've never heard of the Lucky Yates Show. Homestar-Winner (talk) 21:33, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

We don't have any details on the content of the appearance at this time is why. We don't know anyone who was able to attend the show. --DorianGray 21:39, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
I don't link any red links look good. Could we remove them? Homestar-Winner (talk) 21:51, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
My take: a red link indicates that we should have an article about a subject, but nobody's created it yet. I think we should leave them, and hopefully somebody with some information will come across one of those links and create the page. Trey56 21:54, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Image

I desperately need to upload an image. What's an autoconfirmed user? Whatever it is, can I please be one so I can upload this image? Empaire 08:36, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi Empaire. Unless I'm mistaken, you will probably become an autoconfirmed user in the next few hours. Sit tight! Autoconfirmation is just something we do here so that trolls and vandals can't register a username and then immediately start uploading bad images. —BazookaJoe 08:47, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
I'm just curious as to what image it is that desperately needs to be uploaded or the wikiworld will a splode. Danny Lilithborne 10:03, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Flickering text/logo

The animated logo for Decemberween is making my cursor flicker in and out in the edit box. Why come? -Ein Poltergeist

[edit] Main Page Icon

How can you view the icons for different hollidays like the one with red, green, snow, and a hat? (The Wiki Logo in the top left of every page.)--ONESTOP 20:51, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

They are located at wiki-ween.gif, wiki-dween.gif, and wiki-winter.gif. — It's dot com 00:05, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Proofreaders?

Is anybody going to change the misspelling of Burnination (BurninIation) in the "What's New" frame? It's been there for two days now. Apparently I can't edit it, so this is my only option.

Fixed. Homestar-Winner (talk) 16:11, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Podstar Download template...

Is there a Podstar Runner download template similar to {{watch}}? I was trying to find one to add to the latest update.— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 20:44, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Currently there isn't. The current template ({{Podstar download}}) is just for creating external links in articles. Also, since podcasts are basically downloadable versions of existing content (and not exactly embedded media), I'm not sure if it's absolutely necessary to include a direct link, especially since both the Podstar Runner and toon pages would contain links. --Stux 20:50, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
That's the same with sbemails too, and we have that. The Goblin!! 21:42, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Recent Toons Template

Where do you go to edit the recent toons template? If I can't, here is the problem:

Enviroment is listed as being posted "JANUARY 7, 2007."


Good eye. You can go here to edit it. —BazookaJoe 20:19, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Unblock

Why isn't there an unblock template? People who think they have been unfairly blocked might want to ask to be unblocked. 11:23, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Generally people in this position should post on a sysop's talk page - probably the sysop who blocked them - petitioning their block. Though, to be honest, I have seen very few blocks, if any at all, which have not been entirely reasonable. The few which were not were quickly corrected. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 12:51, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
Note also that, unlike at Wikipedia, our software is not set up to allow blocked users to edit their own talk pages. This means an unblock template wouldn't work here, since a blocked user cannot add it to their talk page. If a user wishes to contest their block, email is one option. Heimstern Läufer 16:50, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Has anyone noticed...?

Has anyone noticed that when you enter there is a trogdor that pops up?

You were probably the first to notice. Combolations, Elizagerth. —BazookaJoe 19:31, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks man

[edit] New Podcast

I just downloaded Strong Badathlon through the iTunes feed... I'm too stupid to know how to update anything so I thought I'd add it here. rootbeersoup 17:20, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Sweet, thanks for the notice! --Stux 18:00, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Can someone help me?

I can't stay logged in it loggs me out the second I leave the main page. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Which user are you? This can happen if you close your page without logging on. Happened to me a few times. The thing to do is to log in right now then log out. That does the trick. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:55, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

I am Gary the legend, and what you said doesn't work.

First, go to the Main Page. If you see in the top-right corner your username, it will say "log out". Click that. Then, log in again. If you are not logged in, just repeat the same process. Hope that works. 23:10, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
Gary, try making sure you have cookies enabled, in your browser's preferences. The Goblin!! 23:22, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

It doesn't work

Wow. I'm puzzled. Why don't you log in. Then go to your preferences and enable cookies. That should work. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 23:54, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
Hey Gary, just checking some things: Which browser are you using? Are you sure that you have cookies enabled in your browser before you log on to the wiki? Loafing 00:22, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
Also, go through Wikipedia:Help:Logging in#Log in problems and see if you can fix it using those instructions. Good luck! Loafing 00:25, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry to keep bothering you guys but for some reason it's not working
Please be more specific and answer the questions. Otherwise, we can't help you. Which browser are you using? Have you made sure that cookies are enabled? Have you tried the suggestion from the Wikipedia help page? Loafing 01:09, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
I am useing Internet explorer and yes I tried the thingy on wikipedia And I checked for cookies
That's odd. I'm sorry, but you'll have to wait for one of our experts to help you out. Loafing 02:11, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
What version of Internet Explorer are you using? (If you're not sure, it's probably either IE6 or IE7... look at those and tell me which one looks like what you're using). phlip TC 08:24, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

It looks more like Internet Explorer 6...I have a question, does enable mean to get rid of or allow?

To allow. Or better, to make operational; activate. — It's dot com 22:11, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

I think a while ago we blocked a few cookies with norton anti-virus but is there any way to fix that

Google finds this site, which has some detailed instructions on how to enable cookies in NIS... just replace any mention of "" with "". phlip TC 00:20, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Talk Page Question

Is there a template you can use to draw people to your user page or talk page? 08:52, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

No. that would be not useful. To attract users to your userpage and talk page, why not contributing more to the wiki, like doing gnome work. Creating useful pages when sbemails and toons come out. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 16:04, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
Your talk page is not a MySpace or a Facebook, and it is not meant for idle chatter. Use a separate site for that. See HRW:TALK for what a talk page is really for. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 16:07, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
Well, Sam and Qer. Man and Maq. Mth and Rma. I believe anonny isp is referring to sigs like yours--in addition to the usual ~~~~, each of you have links to your talk and contribution pages. Frankly, this is something I've been curious about too. o.o --Onamuji 05:09, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
See HRWiki:Signature and Help:Signature. If that's not enough or if you run into a specific problem, I'm happy to help you. Just let me know. Good luck; I look forward to seeing your creativity! OptimisticFool 05:36, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Image borders

In IE7, I've noticed that when an image on the main page has a height of an odd number of pixels, the bottom portion of the border around it doesn't appear correctly. The image appears to get shifted down a pixel and covers it. I decided to try it in Firefox and the borders all appear fine. But is there any way we can fix that for us die-hard IE users? Still plenty of us around, you know... OptimisticFool 05:58, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

While I'm sure the developers want to ensure good rendering on all browsers, you must also be aware that IE is notoriously non-compliant with the recommendations of the W3C. As such, some problems may require a lot of work to fix in that one browser, and some may be irrpairable. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:15, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Participation

How do you get more people to participate in a discussion to delete an article? Bad Bad Guy 20:07, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] new valentine toon: don't call it old timey!

(groan) just because TBC called it "old timey"-which it is- dosn't mean we have to quote them! at LEAST use a heart icon, not homestar's head! SHESH! HaldoHelscome!

Plus, shouldn't old-timey toons have old-timey Homestar's head? 01:15, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
Check out {{u}} for the icons that we use. And please be more civil, Haldo. No need to sheesh. Loafing 01:20, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Should there be a "higher frame rate" section?

I was just thinking this after watching some toons over. The punkin stencils as well as the teen girl squad tenth issue seem to have a slightly higher frame rate than other toons. -- 04:40, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Awesome

Does the word "awesome" deserve its own article like the word "crap" does, or is awesome considered one of the spoons? Bad Bad Guy 05:33, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Does it deserve 1? Bad Bad Guy 00:29, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] CAPTCHA?

I'm trying to move a page but the CAPTCHA image isn't loading. What's going on? — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 14:29, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

What do you want moved? A sysop should be able to do it for you until the CAPTCHA's fixed. Heimstern Läufer 16:06, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
I was trying to move PokemonStar's Holiday template into his/her own userspace, but it's already been taken care of now. — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 16:14, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
