Hello there. I'm a 20-something-year-old guy from Australia - more specifically, the state of Victoria. You can also find me on various other sites, such as Youtube, under the same username, and on Wikipedia under the name "Jc iindyysgvxc".

[edit] My history with Homestar Runner

October 2006: Saw an image of a wrestleman used humorously on several tiny Wikipedias.

November 2006: After a period of curiosity, searched and found out exactly who the wrestleman was: Strong Bad. I also found out that he was from a web cartoon called Homestar Runner. Though I did check out H*R for a little bit (if I remember correctly), I didn't actually watch anything on it.

March 2007: Did a Google search for something about text adventures. One of the results was a forum in which one of the posts contained a link to the Strong Bad Email "video games". I clicked the link to watch that email, and I finally got hooked on H*R.

April 2007: Discovered the Homestar Runner Wiki.

April-May 2007: Watched every Sbemail on the site released up to that point.

May 2007: First edited the Wiki as an Anonny. Over the next couple of months, I used several IPs to edit, this one being one of them.

May-November 2007: Watched some of the rest of the toons of the site. I also watched each email from underlings to business trip as soon as they were released.

November 2007: Lost interest in H*R.

August 2009: Regained interest after nearly two years.

September 2009: Joined the Wiki under the name "RickTommy" (though I started off with "Jc iindyysgvxc", my Wikimedia name).

January-February 2010: Watched every single toon on the site for the first time.

February 2010: Started writing French subtitles for toons.

April 2010: Joined the HRWiki Forum.

May-December 2010: Despite being an active Wiki user, rarely watched any H*R toons due to the hiatus and the fact that I had already watched them all. That changed, however, once A Decemberween Mackerel was released.

January 2011: Used the HRWiki IRC channel for the first time.

May 2011: Got my first item from the Store.

June-September 2011: Lost activity on the HRWiki, but eventually regained it. However, my activity now waxes and wanes.

[edit] Pages I've created

[edit] Subtitles- and French-related stuff

Being somewhat experienced in French (I studied it in my first four years of secondary school), I've created a bunch of French subtitles. The subtitles script for underlings, in particular, is for some reason popular, having amassed over 2,000 views, which is high by subtitles script standards, especially since it was created during the hiatus. By copying the relevant text from other subtitles, I've also created German, Spanish, and Turkish subtitles for Intro 2 and Flag Intro (subtitles:intro2/de, subtitles:intro2/es, subtitles:intro2/tr, subtitles:flagintro/de, subtitles:flagintro/es, and subtitles:flagintro/tr), as well as Dutch, Portuguese, and Turkish subtitles for 500 The Cheats (subtitles:500cheats/nl, subtitles:500cheats/pt-br, and subtitles:500cheats/tr). I also created the original English subtitles for SBCG4AP Advertisement. And my French work has not been limited to subtitles - I have gone as far as to translate an entire talk page thread on this Wiki into French.

[edit] Other contributions

  • I've significantly expanded to Hiatuses.
  • I've drafted FA write-ups for every not-yet-featured Strong Bad Email up to portrait.
  • I did not create Gum, but I made it a worthwhile page.
  • I've done some image summary cleanup, originally to catch up on the number of edits I could have made during my six-month exile from the Wiki.
