[edit] Toldja so

I told you we should have waited another couple of days before making this move. Now everyone thinks this is a joke! --Jaycemberween (Ho ho ho!) 21:07, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Well Tom Thunderbird Jay, that doesn't make him feel any better about it. And besides, it's their fault. I don't know how many times I've told them it's not a joke. — Seriously (Talk) 21:09, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
I know. But they're not listening. --Jaycemberween (Ho ho ho!) 21:10, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
I know We'll just have to get it to them as clear as we can. And that means either putting it on the Main Page, or pulling some outrageous stunt like blocking everybod who doesn't listen. ;) — Seriously (Talk) 21:13, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
I don't believe, block me. --Collin 21:15, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
I'm starting to. i mean, Joey doesn't lie much, and, I dunno. I'm kinda nuetral now. I mean, maybe their right... Bluebry 21:16, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
I don't think anyone is stupid enough to make such a change on april fools day. people would be much more accepting otherwise... in my opinion. --Collin 21:21, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
I think blocking everyone may be going just an eensy bit too far. Oh, well,they'll all see tomorrow. --Jaycemberween (Ho ho ho!) 21:30, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
Y'know, I think I've grown a bit fond of 'tavi. If it leaves, I'll miss it. — Seriously (Talk) 02:38, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
Wow. I believed every excuse you sysops said. Good job. — Seriously (Talk) 13:36, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Donation

Did you get my check yet? I just want to make sure. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 05:31, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I have received your check. I've deposited it, but have yet to transfer it from my bank account into the my PayPal account. I'll list it on the register when that goes through. Thanks for checking up on it and keeping me honest, and thanks especially for your donation. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 18:11, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
You're welcome. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 19:56, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Hi

[edit] It's dot com

Hey JoeyDay this is Master Chief. I need to tell you some stuff. It's Dot Com blamed me and Tampo for vandal sockpuppets when we didn't do anything. Oh yeah could you de-admin Dot Com and then ban him? He is really annoying me and Tampo.--Master Chief 22:58, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Listen closely, Master Chief: you are playing with fire. The evidence I have against you is circumstancial, but I think I could make it stand up in a court. On the other hand, I have Tampo dead to rights. Incidentally, I have been keeping JoeyDay fully apprised of the situation, so you can post here if you want, but it really isn't necessary. — It's dot com 23:05, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
Master Chief, cut the bullcrap. We know you and Tampo are doing the sock puppetry and the vandalism, and we have server logs to prove it. Everything you do is logged by your IP address on our server. We have logs that show you both signing out of your own accounts and creating new accounts to vandalize the wiki. Lying about it isn't helping the situation at all. Crying to me isn't going to help the situation either. You need to 'fess up to all this and quit doing it or we'll ban you indefinitely. It's that simple. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 20:19, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Just letting you know

Hi JoeyDay stop giving crap that doesn't exist! We did not create vandal sockpuppets! Dot Com just wants to get us in trouble for no reason.--Master Chief 21:01, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

If you have proof of what kind of sockpuppets we created tell me and Tampo what are they. Me and Tampo DID NOT! Create vandal sockpuppets!--Master Chief 21:06, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Master Chief, you logged in today as KillerFrenchFry1 and vandalized Dot Com's user page. Stop or you will be banned. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 21:12, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
What?!?! Really?!?! I must be dreaming. Months ago on the recent changes for the user creasion creation log it said KillerFrenchFry1. No seriously. It was true. NO!!! PLEASE... DON'T SHOOT!!! Tampo (T/C) AND SOMEONE GET THiS FREAKiN CURSOR AWAY FROM ME!!!!! 21:28, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
I just checked the user creation log and I typed in KillerFrenchFry1 and User:KillerFrenchFry1 and got nothin'. Isn't that weird?!?! NO!!! PLEASE... DON'T SHOOT!!! Tampo (T/C) AND SOMEONE GET THiS FREAKiN CURSOR AWAY FROM ME!!!!! 21:32, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Hmm. I guess you just weren't looking hard enough. — It's dot com 21:36, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
I typed it in the second box instead of the first! That's probably why I got nothin'! Anyway, it said March 23strd. NO!!! PLEASE... DON'T SHOOT!!! Tampo (T/C) AND SOMEONE GET THiS FREAKiN CURSOR AWAY FROM ME!!!!! 21:48, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Joey didn't say the account was created recently. In fact, we already knew the account was a sockpuppet account of Master Chief, and we already told you we knew when It's dot com included that account on the list of his sockpuppets in that note on your user talk page. -- Tom 06:58, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Haldo

I was just randomly looking around the Wiki and decided that I would stop by and drop you a line. What's going on with the wiki lately? Anything need doing that a non admin can do to help out? Also, would it be okay for me to add you to my friends list? I mean, you're probably the biggest user around here and probably have done more for the wiki than anyone else. I'd like to honor you for that. What do you think?--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 14:56, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

I'm flattered, but I'd have to disagree with your statement about me doing more for the wiki than anyone. I've been relatively inactive for some time now and I'm sure Tom and lately It's dot com have done much more for the wiki than I have (and there are many more I could and probably should list). Feel free to add me to your friends list, though. On the wiki I'm friends with everyone (even though some may not be friendly with me). As for things to do, you can always check the discussion at HRWiki:Projects or HRWiki:Da Basement for ideas and the latest news and gossip. Cheers! — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 19:33, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Hi

Hey joey. I was just hanging around the wiki like a bad smell and I thought I would check in. How are you and your wife doing? Reply on my talk when you get the chance. Talk atcha later!--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 14:56, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Clock

Do you know what I am doing wrong? I entered the javascript code into my monobook.js page, but I still can't see the clock. Stonecold5987 (talk·edits) 18:47, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Try a hard refresh. If you're using FireFox, that means holding down shift and pressing the refresh button. You also have to paste both codes into their respective monobook pages. Thunderbird 18:49, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
Thanks. I had to enter in the correct CSS code, I had changed the js code to the one for placing the clock under my personal menu, and forgot to change the CSS code accordingly. Also, do you know how I can fix my user page? The details of the problem are at the bottom of my talk page. Stonecold5987 (talk·edits) 18:58, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Matt Chapman

Am I reading the Thank You page right? Is the Matt Chapman one of the donors? If so, that makes him doubly cool. Point7Q 01:54, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

See User:JoeyDay/talk archive 81-100#Congrats, and the other contents of the envelope. —AbdiViklas 02:16, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks! I never would have thought to look there on my own. Point7Q 02:21, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Ringtone

Sweet ringtones Joey. I have a Trogdor one myself, but that's because it's the only one I found online. How did you get yours? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 15:07, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Made 'em myself. My new Treo 650 can import any MIDI or WAV file as a ringtone. I used a couple free programs by a company called NCH Swift Sound: one called Switch to convert the MP3 files into WAV files, and another called WavePad to splice and crop the files. I just cropped them down to 30 seconds or so and saved them as mono, 32 KHz, 16-bit files to accomodate my limited storage space on the device. Although, at 16-bit they still take up a whopping MB and a half each (out of a total 23 MB on the device). 8-bit makes them half that, but then they sound horrible. You can't have your cake and eat it too. Anyway, they sound great, and I'll never again mistake someone else's ring for mine. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 22:22, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
I think I'll have to use this programs myself. This sounds awesome. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 03:41, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] New store address

The new store URL is, and old store URLs redirect accordingly. Could you please change the store link's base URL accordingly?

Thanks, X. I've updated the database and style sheets accordingly. — It's dot com 23:40, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Forum Problems

The FAQ on this wiki doesn't pertain to the forum, which I can't sign in at. I get a "user inactive" message when signing in and when using the "Forgot your password?" form. GWR_Wikisig.gifGWR 2004 TalkContribs 21:55, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Hosting

Hi Joey,

You're doing incredible work and I love your content. I'm the new CEO of and I'm trying to build the best place on the internet for all passionate wiki users. I had a few thoughts for you.

  • I'm not a user but if it's okay I can make a small personal donation to the site
  • We offer wiki hosting and are currently on mediawiki 1.7, so we'd love to host your site if you were interested
  • We are normally ad supported, but in your case we might make some sort of exception, either by leaving ads off for the first year or so, or some other idea if that made a difference
  • We also have a ton of tools for preventing spam and vandalism - I see you've had to add graphical logos to each edit page, which is a bummer
  • I hope I'm not offending you with the offer, so if nothing else, leave me a message at Wikia on my userpage Gil and I will make a small donation to your site, so you can keep doing great work.


Gil, thanks so much for your generous offer. Angela has tempted us with this offer before, but we have a strong desire to remain independant. We are very proud to do what we do on our own, and like to remain in complete control of the server and the software. Thanks again. -- Tom 22:12, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Images

Hey Joey. Y'know, I've thought for a long time how you made those great images such as the logos, the backgrounds in the main page, and so on. DFid you get them from somewhere. Or did you construct them yourself? The reaosn I'm asking is that I'm trying to trying to consturct a new main page idea for the Fanstuff Wiki, and I was wondering if you knew how to make a Pom Pom background much like the SB and Homestar ones. Cheers! — seriously talk 17:34, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] HRFWiki:Flashkit

I would greatly appreciate it if you would take a look at that page. --NERD42  email  talk   h²g²  pedia  uncyc  18:23, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Another fanstuff Wiki

Hello JoeyDay, The Mu has created another fanstuff wiki. Is that a bad thing?--H*Bad 05:03, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Nevermind, Tom answered my question for me.--H*Bad 05:16, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Frappr place

Hi Joey, I accidently deleted the place where you put the server in. Can you re-add it? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 09:55, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

[edit] My fanstuff JS:

it just won't load on the fanstuff. Any ideas why? (Maybe it's a problem with the server upgrade, I don't know. Also, my new fanstuff name is Y2K, if it'll help.) --Y2K (15px-Crystal_Clear_app_xchat.png15px-Crystal_Clear_app_kedit.png15px-Crystal_Clear_app_email.png) 07:02, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Have you tried clearing your cache, by doing a refresh?--H*Bad 07:26, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
Yes, I have. Customizations still don't work. --Y2K (15px-Crystal_Clear_app_xchat.png15px-Crystal_Clear_app_kedit.png15px-Crystal_Clear_app_email.png) 09:15, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
Accually there might be a problem with the code, let me take a look at it.--H*Bad 13:22, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
Ok, so it is your computer. I guess JoeyDay or whoever will have to help with this. Sorry.--H*Bad 13:35, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
Try your Monobook.css --Dinoshaur 13:42, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
Thats what he is using.--H*Bad 14:10, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
You may have to wait a day or so for the effects in your personal CSS and JS pages to appear. This is true most of the time. — Lapper (talk) 16:43, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Your name

Hi JoeyDay. Me and a few others are writing a story and I was wondering if I could get your permission to use your name in the story.--H*Bad 21:18, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Donated

Hi - I donated, but never got added to the list. See your donations page for my details. Gil
