[edit] Early chatter

The Love Letter Worm does not create messages saying "i love you" followed by gibberish!

This is a Wiki. If you see something wrong with a page, just go ahead and fix it. Also, please sign your posts on Discussion pages so we know who we're talking to. Thanks. — InterruptorJones[[]]

The first sentence seems completely out of place; I would fix it, but I want to make sure it's not just me. -- anonymous

The commas seem a bit much. Is that it? -- Tom 22:46, 28 Dec 2004 (MST)

Some of the things on the filmography seem like they shouldn't be there. Fhqwhgads is only mentioned in sibbie, yet it is in the filmography. Does it matter if they are only mentioned? «Rob»

Y'know? Even IF it was the I love you virus, the reason as to why it didn't seem to affect Strong Bad's computer is probably because his computer was so primitave, there wasn't much that the virus could really mess with! :P TK600 20:39, 2 May 2005 (UTC)

Actually it's probably because the Tandy 400 is similar to a macintosh computer (judging by the logo), which the I love you virus doesn't effect.

I just think it's that whiffle ball you see in Everybody to the Limit. Unclepoopaw3

IF it was the I Love You virus, Strong Bad's computer wouldn't be affected no matter what. He was too busy reading Fhqwhgads to open the attachment. Btw, did anyone see a love letter attachment? 0_o I don't think that email was a virus... Sharri

[edit] Personification

 "Everybody to the Limit":  fhqwhgads is represented as the dragon from the Atari game "Adventure".

Re-watching the video, I would think that the whiffle ball with the words fhqwhgads printed on it would personify fhqwhgads, not the duck/dragon-- Dr Haggis - Talk 18:02, 3 Dec 2004 (MST)

[edit] Connections

Some of my friends know the person who wrote this email. pretty cool huh? --Martin925 04:48, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)

It is cool, but this sorta thing should actully go on your user page. Besides, this is about the person, not the e-mail. — talk Bubsty edits 21:32, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Headbang

If you remove the keys fhqwhgads didn't type from a QWERTY keyboard, you get this:

`1234567890-=
  QWE  Y    []\
   ASDFGHJK ;'
       VBN ,./

woddfellow2| 19:00, 8 Sep 2005 (UTC)

What signifigance does that have?-- Benol, aka Coach B 16:17, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Besides, it would be

QWE  Y 
   ASDFGHJK
       VBN
-- Benol, aka Coach B 16:19, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
So why excactly did we need to know that woddfellow? It's kinda interesting, but... who cares? — talk Bubsty edits 16:29, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Full name pronunciation

I'm not really good at the English stuff, but someone who knows how should add how to pronunce Fhqwhgadshgnsdhjsdbkhsdabkfabkveybvf as Strong Bad does. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 15:28, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Who would bother to though?It isn't like the Wiki is school and you get yelled at by your English teacher for the wrong pronunciation of something.=P--68.198.126.83 21:58, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

If I have the time I probably will. Or someone else could. I think it'd be fun. -WarthogDemon 23:30, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Capitalization

There's a great deal of inconsistency across the site regarding the potential capital F in "fhqwhgads". It seems most places only capitalize when this leads a sentence, but others capitalize it all the time. Of note: we have never seen it capitalized on the site (aside from writing it in all caps). If we were to vote on it, I'd say "no capital F unless leading a sentence". But we should discuss to reach consensus. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 15:00, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

I'm in agreement. -WarthogDemon 23:30, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

[edit] How you says it

Huh. So is it "fuh-HOO-kwah-gahds" or "fuh-HOO-gwah-gahds"? --Garfunkel 12:25, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

It says it's the last one, but I always say the first one.

[edit] i love you virus

the trivia section has a comment about a myth involving the i love you virus. My questions:

  • Is this verified?
  • Even if so, is it really worthwhile to keep facts about myths and nottrueities?

— DeFender1031*Talk 16:23, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

I feel the same way. There was no info on the linked Wikipedia article to back up this claim, so I removed it (...well, after screwing up). I'd say, proof is needed before something like this could be considered worthwhile. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 08:07, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
I could find nothing at all to back this up. The descriptions by the big virus scanner companies mention nothing like fhqwhgads being included. Apparently 17 people uninformed individuals on urbandictionary believe there's a connection, but that's in no way notable enough for us to mention. Loafing 08:32, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
Honestly, after reading the Wikipedia article, it doesn't seem like fhqwhgads or i love you even remotely resemble said virus. The only connections -- a bunch of random gibberish followed by "i love you" is tenuous at best. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 02:00, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Err, where?  Green Helmet 05:34, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Badia the Free

Someone (I don't remember who) said that Coach Z's country was having trouble with the Fhqwhgadi rebels in Strong Badia the Free. --Mettan was here. 19:56, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

It was Bubs, incidentally. --DorianGray 19:57, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Redirect

Is there a reason that fhqwhgads with a lower-case f redirects here? I think it should be redirected to Everybody to the Limit since most url addresses redirect to their url page. since that url is fhqwhgads, i think it should redirect there instead of here. Fhqwhgads with a capital F should stay here, just like pom pom vs. Pom Pom and marzipan vs. Marzipan. (now i'm referring to the case sensitive wiki, not the urls.) The Knights Who Say Ni 04:15, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

In response to your post on Dorian Gray's talk page, you're not breaking anything by creating such a redirect, you're just overriding the system. All you need to do is whip out some URL action, in this case, http://www.hrwiki.org/wiki/fhqwhgads?action=edit , to make a redirect for this. Apparently, there is no redirection message for autopiped redirects as there used to be, so it makes it a bit harder to set things straight. However, the only reason why such a redirect would exist would be to help the Greasemonkey script (or any other automation for that matter), and after thinking about it I believe that would only cause unnecessary confusion as the Greasemonkey script already has that exception covered. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 20:32, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
I just noticed you put two recently created redirects like this up for deletion for the exact reason they were created. They were created to interfere with the logical autopiping. Since i asked this question a year and a half ago, i have learned more about redirects and autopipes. Here, i was wondering if i could override the system. and i'd like to see what it does to the GreaseMonkey script. do i have to download it now? The Knights Who Say Ni 22:57, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
I don't have an opinion as to whether fhqwhgads should redirect to Fhqwhgads or Everybody to the Limit, but I would like to point out that the filename redirect was previously created and removed. — It's dot com 00:33, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
When making the filename redirects, I specifically avoided making redirects which were the same name (but different capitalisation) to an existing page. So, for instance, I didn't redirect fhqwhgads to Everybody to the Limit, or toons to TV Time Toons Menu, or suchlike. For the sake of avoiding confusion. On the basis that having pages with identical names except for the capitalisation is OK when there's a reason, like following the canon (pom pom and Pom Pom, for instance), but merely "having a filename redirect" isn't enough of a reason.
I mean, if someone plugs "sbemail152" into the search, it's pretty clear what they want to go to, but if they search for "toons" or "fhqwhgads", they probably want Toons or Fhqwhgads, not TV Time Toons Menu or Everybody to the Limit. Especially given that if they typed it in with capitalisation they'd get the non-redirected page.
Anyways, the main purpose of the filename redirects is for the Greasemonkey script, and that script has special-cases hardcoded in for when the filename redirects can't be made (or shouldn't be made). The only disadvantage to that is that whenever a new toon comes out that needs to be a special case, then people need to update their GM script, but if it's one that can be a filename redirect then they don't need to update. Which is a small downside, and not worth causing confusion over.
We have had this discussion before, and it's always come down on the side of not having a filename redirect in these cases. --phlip TC 02:08, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
Phlip took the words right out of my mouth. That, on top of how a lot of people type in lower case instead of proper most of the time; autopiping was just for case insensitivity to remedy this among other things, right? Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 02:17, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
Now that I see the reason, I agree that these filename redirects should be deleted so that searching will work properly, and the GM script can handle the special cases. — It's dot com 02:25, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Well, I marked the articles in question (though we only talked about one here, so fhqwhgads → Everybody to the Limit and sbcg4ap → SBCG4AP Advertisement) up for deletion since no one else has raised a finger. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 03:20, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

toons redirects to TV Time Toons Menu, so why shouldn't this redirect to Everybody to the Limit? And yes, I know this discussion was from several years ago. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:55, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Mentioned on XKCD

I came back after 7 years when I noticed that the latest XKCD comic mentioned this name- Car Model Names. I know some of the wiki pages have lists of popular culture references, what do you think about this one? --racerx_is_alive 04:29, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

It's already on the Comic Sightings List, and I put it there on said sightings list. ColdReactive 06:36, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
