[edit] Once and only once and again

Hey Bad Bad Guy. Those two pages describe specific DVD featurettes, and as such are different from the larger lists. Thus, they should not be deleted. Talk atcha later. — It's dot com 19:23, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

I look back on this as one of the gleaming signs that that template needed to be reworded. Bad Bad Guy 18:24, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Link

Hey, saw a recent edit was reverted. In case you wonder why, here's a resource at Wikipedia which explains why and why it's not a great idea to make a big change just to illustrate a point. Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Do not disrupt Wikipedia to illustrate a point I find it's an excellent article in that it explains this rather simply. Keep on keepin' on... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 06:38, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

It's gone. Bad Bad Guy 17:23, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

[edit] sbemail173

Copied from Talk:sbemail173:

Could someone tell me how everything disappeared? I didn't get to finish what I was writing. Bad Bad Guy 02:46, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
This page was deleted on the grounds that unreleased emails do not merit an article, and that nonexistant unreleased email articles do not merit talk pages. If you'd like to discuss the concept of an article on this, I'd suggest Talk:Main Page as a better location. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:48, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
By the way, Bad Bad Guy, I can post the paragraph you had written on this talk page before it was deleted on your talk page if you like. Just let me know. However, this talk page will be deleted soon, for Qermaq's reason. Trey56 02:52, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

The talk page has been deleted again. Please do not re-create it. Keep on tranglin'! Loafing 03:03, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

I won't revive it, but here was my idea. Strong Bad receives an email asking him if The Paper's really getting replaced. He starts to go into some talk revealing he didn't actually get to by a new printer, but he believes we shouldn't be surprised after his predictions in stunt double and 2 years didn't come true. While he is talking, Strong Sad walks in carrying what appears to be a new printer, so Strong Bad beats him up and returns the DNA Evidence so he will finally leave him alone. Strong Bad asks us all to rejoice that The Paper is staying and proceeds to DELETE a few other emails regarding The Paper. An Easter Egg involves Marzipan discovering the Evidence Strong Bad gave Strong Sad was another tampered piece. Bad Bad Guy 03:08, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Interesting — that makes me wonder if there's a place on the Fanstuff wiki where users write possible scenarios for sbemail 173... it sounds like the thing that would fit right in there... At any rate, I'm looking forward to sbemail 173 — it'll be interesting to see if TBC remember what Strong Bad said so many emails ago. Trey56 03:11, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
My theory on this is on my user page. Good idea, though, BBG. :-) --TheYellowDart(t/c) 03:12, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
I thought originally the "DNA evidence" thread might lead us there, but it's going to be a while (I'm guessing early to mid May) till this email is released, so I doubt it now. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:17, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Since now it seems unlikely sbemail 173 will be related to DNA Evidence (I already knew there were other things it could have built up to, though my guess was the final Lappy email), I guess Strong Bad will put off any montage references until the very end, which I hope will go something like this:
STRONG BAD: Now, I'm sure these next few seconds are a moment of suspense for you guys. I'm sure you remember watching me creat credits for those pancake montages, and I got cancelled from Animal Planet, and The Paper got replaced in Sbemail 173. Well...
{drumroll, then the same The Paper that's been used since cartoon comes down.}
STRONG BAD: It's the same old The Paper you've seen since sbemail 21. {sarcastically} Big surprise. Especially after the stop sign and the cinder block didn't break up and I didn't make a 3-D Dangeresque movie. If you guys believed those credits the crap in your brains has crap for brains.

[edit] STUFF

Hey there, Bad Bad Guy. STUFF is for making decisions on disputed fun facts, not for proposing new ideas. If you're unsure if your suggested fun fact "This toon might include references to old Disney movies that began with a storybook opening" should be in the article, then you should post it on the articles talk page. Keep on tranglin'! Loafing 22:51, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

This thread was originally two threads. The second one began here.

Hi there, Bad Bad Guy: STUFF is only for Fun Facts. For other issues, such as the one you raised at Inconsistencies within the Homestar Runner universe, start a discussion on the talk page instead. Keep on tranglin'! Heimstern Läufer 00:15, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

How do you explain the existence of Talk:Fourth Wall Breaks#Closed STUFF? Bad Bad Guy 00:16, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
That is a good question. As far as I can tell, the answer is that those items should not have been STUFF'd. The dates on those are from relatively early in the existence of STUFF; that may have some to do with it. Heimstern Läufer 00:20, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Foot in mouth

I guess I was unaware that you were the one who put that comment there... Sorry. DeFender1031 22:16, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

The funny thing is, this is the 1st message I got since the welcome 1 and the fanfic comments where no one is telling me what not to do! And it's easy not to know that I wrote that. Bad Bad Guy 23:58, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] STUFF votes

Hey there, Bad Bad Guy. I noticed at STUFF:Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon#Where Credit Is Due that you voted to accept both the original fact and a revision. According to the STUFF rules (see the top of HRWiki:STUFF) you can only vote to accept one version of a fact. By default, only the bottommost of your two votes will count; if this isn't what you want, feel free to delete one of the two votes. Thanks, Trey56 20:08, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] "Only Time"

Continued conversation from Talk:Everybody to the Limit#"Only Time", since it no longer pertains to the content of that article.
It's not "Evident STUFF" that makes me think you hate me; it's "Where Credit is Due." How can you seriously think opening credits will come back soon if the last 6 or 7 Big Toons had none? Bad Bad Guy 00:52, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
You might be right that there will never be another big toon without opening credits; I personally voted against the fact because I didn't think it was notable enough. But I assure you that I and most other people vote on facts based on their merit, not based on the people who proposed them.
Honestly, I didn't even know you proposed both of those. I considered the facts, and did my best to make a decision on whether they should be in the respective articles. I'm sure this is true of most other people, too. There's no cause to become personally offended by people declining facts if most of them aren't even aware that you're the one who proposed them. Trey56 01:18, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Disc Five

Hey there, Bad Bad Guy — before you get too far into the tagging of the Disc Five emails, one correction. The "s" should be lowercase, like so:

{{dvd|strongbad_email.exe Disc Five}}

Thanks, Trey56 00:35, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

By the time I got this, I was on bedtime story. Bad Bad Guy 00:38, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
It's okay, I fixed 'em up. Trey56 00:39, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
Hold on, one more thing — you should actually put use this template:
{{dvd|strongbad_email.exe Disc Five}}
rather than manually typing in the "DVD: ..." This will automatically categorize them... Trey56 00:40, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Hey

Hey, judging by the overall tone and feel of your edits and summaries, you seem like a real cool guy. Why don't you hang out in the IRC channel? It's a cool place to get to know the other editors. DeFender1031 00:22, 18 May 2007 (UTC) P.S. watch out, ch`mera bites.

[edit] edit summaries

These summaries were vague at best and didn't tell me anything about why you made the changes you did. I have reverted them. If there was a good reason, (as I assume there was, you're generally a good editor) please let me know. Also, please be more specific with your edit summaries, and try to get your meaning across, rather than using vague ideas that only make sense if one knows where you're coming from. We now return you to your regularly scheduled trangling, already in progress. — DeFender1031*Talk 12:12, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Hey there, me again. this could have been avoided with a descriptive summary the first time. A summary is a good thing to use any time, but especially if the reason for an edit is vague. Okay, keep on tranglin. — DeFender1031*Talk 22:22, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Main Page Messages

I see no warning anywhere. Also, why should that be the case? — DeFender1031*Talk 18:16, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

The warning comes right before the fan costumes button. I'll move it to the bottom of the edit window for the convenience of people like you. It is the case because the "dna evidence" button repeats the name of the 'toon it links to. The part of the talk page that says not to add buttons like that comes before the contents thing:
Where would the navy blue "Sbemail 150?!?" one go? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 23:53, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
I don't think we record main page messages that simply state the toon's name. - Joshua 00:02, 4 April 2006 (UTC)
I can't believe it's taking me this long to explain. Bad Bad Guy 18:21, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
Actually, I can't believe I had to explain to you how adding "dna evidence" went against that warning. Bad Bad Guy 18:33, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
Dude, i didn't see the warning. And it would've taken a lot less time if you had included something like "We don't include buttons named after the toon on this page" in your edit summary, rather than just criticizing someone for not seeing some warning that may or may not be very noticeable. So what there was a warning? People may miss it. Better to just re-explain why you're removing it than make people hunt for something to figure out what you mean. — DeFender1031*Talk 18:44, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
{replying to BBG after EC} Def's comment was not to ask how the message went against that warning; it was about where the warning itself was. Furthermore, your comment above was rude, implying that there's something wrong with him for asking the question he did. Please don't write comments like that again. Heimstern Läufer 18:45, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
Why is this being called a "warning"? It's a notice; a request. Don't assign undue importance to something that has none. Or is there more to the discussion that you quoted above showing that more than just one user expressed an opinion? I'll grant that the intervening year could be taken as tacit approval of his statement, but it's not like we had a full discussion or anything. Moreover, if you're gonna put up a notice, then the place you moved it to is way better than where it was; I doubt anyone would have ever noticed it there. — It's dot com 18:57, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Requested in history

I find it interesting that instead of just saying "Does anyone have the 'interactive menus' thought balloon from sbemail dvd disc 5", you included the phrase "that I requested in history". I'm not sure exactly what that last part means. — It's dot com 17:12, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Read the 1st summary in the "history" section of Interactive Menus.
Oh, I understood that part. Where I was unclear is in interpreting the underlying meaning. Did you mean "see the history for more information", or "why haven't you guys responded yet? I left a note in the history"? If it's the former, then please let me suggest that it would be easier for someone reading the note if you just put your entire request on the talk page and ignored the history. If it's the latter, then please let me suggest that, relatively speaking, the history is an extremely low-visibility spot to request information and that the talk page for that article would be the place to bring anything up regarding what kind of image the page should have. — It's dot com 19:53, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
This is one of my little crusades. :) I am as guilty as the next guy, but summaries aren't a good place to put conversation. When I feel like I'm replying to another summary in my summary, I think hard about whether it'd be better as a Talk post. Often, it is. Just sharing the theory of wikiing... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:20, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Non-ownership of articles

Hello, BBG. I've noticed that you've said something like "link to my article" ([1]) three times now. I just wanted to point out that articles belong to the wiki, not any user in particular. Keep on tranglin'. — It's dot com 03:04, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

I agree with Dot Com, but would like to add that pride in your contributions to the wiki is healthy, positive, and encouraged. It's just that once you put it on the wiki, it's no longer yours exclusively, it's ours collectively. If you were not tranglin' already, feel free to commence forthwith. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:17, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] MVU (Most Valuable User)

Hey Bad Bad Guy. I saw your edits and might I say, very very good. You cleaned up Strong Bad Email Spin-Offs and wrote tons of pages. So I'd like to award you (Drumroll...) The MVU.

This award is given by Sam the Man for users contributing their hearts out and showing just everything the wiki is about. This is the 6th MVU award given out. It is a monthly feature only given to few users.

Keep up the awesome work! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 14:51, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] More Main Page Messages

Hey BBG, I see you're complaining about nobody documenting new main page messages. I must say, that's completely unfounded. Main Page Messages are constantly being documented on this wiki. We have this guy who seems to be mainly doing it. What's his name... Ah, Yes, Bad Bad Guy. You may have heard of him. So, yeah... no reason to complain. And I am out! Loafing 23:03, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

If you weren't volunteering to help me, what were you trying to teach me? To be more overt? Do you know how frustrating it can be to be the only person who cares about these things sometimes? Bad Bad Guy 18:20, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
I was trying to say that you're doing a good job with the main page messages. And that they apparently do get done - by you. But yes, I know how frustrating that can be. But that's how our wiki works: everybody works on the parts that they're interested in. There is no roster, and so there will always be parts that very few people work on. And that changes over time. You'll find that eventually, more people will work on the main page messages. And please don't forget that the main page messages are important to many people who don't actively edit them. For example, I care about many more parts of this wiki than I have time to edit. So don't let it get to you, things will change over time. And keep up the good work! :-) Loafing 18:32, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Small pictures

In reference to this edit summary: It's the large amounts of whitespace left from (I'm guessing) erasing the rest of the screenshot rather than cropping it out. I've taken the liberty of cropping that particular one for you. If you need any help on the rest, or even future ones, let me know. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 02:55, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Um, in addition to Coffee's comment, it would be good if you would crop out the black from images before uploading them, because somebody else needs to do it, in this case me, and it's usually the job of the original uploader to do said work.--~ SlipStream 00:55, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Sysnop

hey, i've noticed that you seem to keep misspelling sysop as sysnop. there's no n... Hope it helps. — DeFender1031*Talk 23:01, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Them pesky weeklies

Whuttup, BBG? We moved your image to Image:Sketchbook 10-18-07.PNG. Well, not exactly moved, but re-uploaded.

And by the way, when you upload sketchbooks and weekly fanstuffs in the future, can you please go to the .html main page and take a screen capture of them there? When looking at the .swf, the pictures get stretched out and pixelly. This is because the sketchbook and fanstuff images are not drawn with vectors like the flash cartoon images, so they get distorted when stretched or compressed. Thanks for the uploads. —BazookaJoe 05:42, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] this edit

Nice job. I was hoping someone would put up a more relevant photo, i couldn't come up with one myself, but the one you put up works... I didn't see the cat change though. — DeFender1031*Talk 14:25, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Everything Else Easter Eggs

Do you still want to know how to access Easter eggs on Everything Else, Volume 1? Because the answer is: after a toon on the DVD ends, you hit the down arrow 3 times and then hit enter to view the Easter egg. If there is a second toon, you hit the right arrow 3 times and then hit enter to access the 2nd egg. See ya, Homestar-Winner (talk) 13:55, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Inconsistencies

I recommend that you upload a larger version of Image:Strong Badia Bubs' Stand.PNG. The article is going to shrink it to a thumbnail anyway, and when people want to see the inconsistency represented by these two appearances, they're really going to want to be able to see the inconsistency. Know what I mean? OptimisticFool 16:52, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

I tried to make a bigger version, but the full-size images couldn't both fit in the MS paint window. Bad Bad Guy 16:53, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
I'll take care of it. OptimisticFool 16:55, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Your comment

[2] When you wrote this, did you think at all about how that might offend people who liked that article? Please think harder about what you say. Our community is built on collegiality. Your comments tend stir up bad blood rather than promoting this collegiality. Heimstern Läufer 06:30, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

That last part is supposed to show I did feel guilty about reopening the discussion to delete MH Homsar. Bad Bad Guy 22:23, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Spelling

I noticed you recently edited The King of Town and The Poopsmith's Relationship, but at the top of the page you wrote "They always get along, and it could even be said the the Poopsmith admires the King." I can't find any way to edit this myself (is it some sort of mod privilege?). Unbalanced 23:03, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Never mind. I was looking for an edit button beside the title, but I've found the correct spot now.

[edit] Podstar Runner

Hi Bad Bad Guy, out of curiosity, did you get an edit conflict from this edit? It happened just after I'd reversed the first table. --Stux 16:06, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

There was no conflict for me. Bad Bad Guy 16:15, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
Hmmm. That is strange. --Stux 16:17, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Respect for others

Bad Bad Guy, could you please be respectful of others' contributions once in a while? Dismissing others' edits as pointless is completely contrary to the spirit of collegiality we mean to foster here. In this case, a user accidentally added redundant info due to an edit conflict of which he wasn't warned, and you treated this edit with contempt. Please don't in the future. Heimstern Läufer 02:38, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Podcast Sumaries

Thanks for the fix! I had two windows open and I pasted the summary in the wrong one! :S --Stux 18:17, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Don't bite the newbies

Ok, I know that he very lightly put a nonsensical comment on your talk page. Twice. But that's no reason to hit a new user, on his first day, who was probably doing this in good faith with a block warning. First of all, there's should be a proper level of escalation. Use {{test}} next time, as it doesn't scare as much and give links and a reason so the user sees what he did wrong. Also, since it's a new user who created his account moments ago, try to welcome him and explain what is proper and what is not. If he continues then you don't need to worry, some sysop will probably notice. Although everyone can put a template on, only a sysop can block, so spreading them by non-sysops is just blank threats. What if we don't find his actions blockable? Consult with us before using this template. I'm sorry to see that after all this time people still bite the new guys. Hoping a lesson is learned, Elcool (talk)(contribs) 00:07, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

That was the 1st time I used that template, so I definitely learned something. (It was Sam the Man's talk page though) Bad Bad Guy 00:11, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Oh, right. Got mixed up with in the whole three-words-three-letters-each kind of usernames. Anyways, I'm you made something positive out of that. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 00:17, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] File Protecting

If you didn't know this before, the {{mprotected}} template does not protect a page, it just announces that protection is in force (which it isn't on that image you just put the template on). Better to wait for a sysop to handle all that, anyway. OptimisticFool 21:25, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] You can make good graphics

When I first looked at yours, my cache gave me mine. It took some intense negotiations with the 'puter to get it to go right, but nice clean image there. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:44, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Come shoot my April Fool's Day plans!

Would it be illegal of me to threaten another member as an April Fool's prank? Bad Bad Guy 21:24, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

I seriously need feedback. Bad Bad Guy 21:33, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
I would not. Anything resembling a violation of our policies could be acted against by a sysop, even on April Fool's, as who's to know it's a prank or not?
It's my experience here that April Fool's pranks on the wiki generally end up causing a lot of anguish. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:38, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
I had 2 other plans for April Fool's anydangway. Bad Bad Guy 21:41, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Homosexuality

Hey there, BBG. Check out Gender Confusion. It's got a different angle from your subpage, but maybe you can merge your info into it. Also, you need to link to your subpages from your user page. Please check out our policy on subpagesLoafing 23:33, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Oh, thanks. I was wondering how to make sure my subpage about the Answering Machine Greetings does not go unnoticed. Bad Bad Guy 23:45, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Patrolling Edits

Hey there BBG. I was just noticing that you do a great job reverting vandalism and finding unproductive edits. I would just like to request that you mark those edits as patrolled that you look at. The system works so that all edits just need to looked at once by a targeted group of users. Your input would be wonderfully helpful in this regard. Until next week...Flashfight 02:36, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Language

Re: your edit summary: Yes, that's over the line. Please refrain from using that word in the future. Thanks. Heimstern Läufer 04:51, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

[edit] All right ____ ____ brains

Just wanted to point out that I finally got to uploading sound samples from the DVD audio of Strongest Man in the World, and it only took me 6+ months! =] Anyway, I hope it helps. Here's a link. OptimisticFool 22:55, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Informative edit summaries

Hey BBG. These two edit summaries don't say anything about the edits themselves. The second one especially seems geared toward the recent changes page, which is temporary, instead of the article's history page. If you would, please write summaries so that they are meaningful to other editors days, weeks, or even years after the fact. Thanks one million. — It's dot com 03:03, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Grizzly deaths

Re: This edit: Does Strong Bad actually write out the word grizzly, or only speak it? If the latter, this word is probably not "grizzly" but "grisly", which has the same pronunciation and would be more usual for the context. Heimstern Läufer 22:37, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

He says something like, "But it needs more grisly deaths .. or grizzly deaths! Ooh!" Something like that. OptimisticFool 22:42, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
Makes, sense, then. Heimstern Läufer 22:45, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Edit summary

The tone in this edit summary is not called for. Please don't be sarcastic and insulting that way. Thanks. Heimstern Läufer 15:11, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Taking It To The Flipside

RE: Your question here:

This is one such coding for flipping things upside down. Text, images, whatever. However, it only works in IE, so keep that in mind. (Man, the things I know and random edits I can pull up at the drop of the hat, eh?) --DorianGray 04:34, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Aspect Ratio?

I don't understand what's wrong with some of the images that you added to User:OptimisticFool/Image Cleanup. Like this one for example. Can you please explain? OptimisticFool 01:15, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

I feared that the 4X3 version of SBCG4AP crops each scene like most VHS tapes do. BBG 01:23, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
That particular image was one that I cropped from a 1440x920 screenshot because the extra space on each side was uninteresting. So, that one need not be replaced. OptimisticFool 01:58, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Marzipan Frowning

Hey there, BBG. As you know, our user space policy doesn't warrant your subpage on Marzipan frowning. I have deleted it and its talk page. I am quoting the contents of the talk page at the end of this post. It happens regularly, that discussions on this wiki don't go anywhere. This can be because editors don't notice the discussions, and this can also be because people simply do not care enough about it to comment. Techniques that will usually not get you positive attention are "bumping" talk pages or creating subpages that that go against our policies. Instead, you could for example talk to people on IRC. Or, for example, if an instance of Strong Bad smiling occurs in a new toon, and someone adds it as a reference, then it would be a good idea putting a note on that toon's talk page. Maybe a discussion will start from there. But getting people's attention artificially is never a good idea. Loafing 10:11, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Someday soon, the rate of Strong Bad Smiling will increase to once per toon. The rate has already increased to the equivalent of once a month. If we don't clean it up soon, that article will end up like this. An overly long list of instances of a gag no one cares about. This message has been brought to you by Bad Bad Guy and his failure to understand what is so special about someone evil expressing happiness. BBG 01:26, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
I agree with you. However, once again, this is NOT an appropriate way to go about getting the issue resolved. — DeFender1031*Talk 01:30, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
I was hoping writing something like this would be less obnoxious than bumping Talk:Strong Bad Smiling every day or pestering people on their talk pages about why they haven't joined the discussion yet. BBG 01:35, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
It's still obnoxious, but yeah, i suppose you're right... you made me laugh at least. — DeFender1031*Talk 01:37, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
I actually didn't read the user page policy... BBG 18:36, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
That's OK, I still stumble upon policies that I hadn't known before ;-) This one is quite important, though. Loafing 10:35, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Sarcasm and communication with others

Bad Bad Guy, thanks for your continued work to keep our content solid. I need to point out to you, though, that you have a habit of making rather sarcastic comments in your edit summaries, such as this one. Whether or not you're right about the change you're making, there's no need at all for you to be sarcastic. For one thing, when you're dealing with newer folks, it's a form of biting the new users; for another thing, it's just plain rude, no matter whether you're directing it toward new users or oldtimers. Please stop. Thanks. Heimstern Läufer 03:56, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Best Load Screen Ever

Thanks for uploading Image:Best Caper Load.png. Here's a few "really appreciates" and a couple "I'll be your best friend!". That should get you a pair slacks down at Penny's... wbwolf (t | ed) 20:18, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Thanks for Your Assistance

Thanks for your assistance in the most recent vandal attack. We haven't had one of such serious nature in a while, and your help in reverting his work was most appreciated. Keep up the good work. --DorianGray 03:25, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Formatting

Terribly sorry for my "X often appears" thing. I suppose I was a little redundant. StarFox 03:13, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Well, it's nice that you listen to warnings. BBG 03:17, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

[edit] "1 of the Channel Awesome Wiki admins hates me"

I'm not sure if anyone is demanding an explanation for the summary I wrote that in, but I feel like giving one anyway, so here is what raised the possibility. Is there any way I can get back at them? BBG 01:54, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Uhh, Bad Bad Guy, we really need you not to bring disputes from off-wiki here. This wiki has plenty of its own matters to deal with without those of other wikis. Thanks for your cooperation. Heimstern Läufer 02:22, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
The issue's been settled now anyway. BBG 02:24, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
I feel I need to emphasize part of the userbox guidelines: "Please keep these boxes positive and related to your Homestar Runner experience." Whatever problems you're having with some other site really aren't important here, and you certainly don't need five edits at a time to change the box on your user page. We allow users a certain latitude to mention their outside interests, but this is getting out of hand. That wiki doesn't have anything to do with H*R, and you should probably just remove the userbox altogether. — It's dot com 00:45, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
Done. BBG 01:11, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] 2 Part Episode links

Is there any way I can link to both parts and only have one h*r logo? BBG 18:49, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Question

Hi, BBG. Dunno if you saw that I left a question here that you may be able to answer. Thanks. Heimstern Läufer 22:24, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Edit summaries 2! Electric— Wait a minute...

Hey there. I was wondering why you've been adding "/**/" to the beginning of your edit summaries. When you do that, the wiki attempts to add an anchor to a new section that doesn't actually exist. (This is how the wiki creates anchors to new talk page posts. Internally, the edit summary of new section posts are actually "/**/Post Title".) Would you mind explaining why your regular summaries have had this added to them as well? It must be extra work for you to type it, and it makes it harder for the rest of us when we see what looks like a new section, but is actually not. — DeFender1031*Talk 23:10, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

After I saw a reminder in Template:showpreview to put "/**/" in your edit summary, I thought it meant I had to add it to every summary. BBG 01:05, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I understand your confusion. No no, it's only for that one template to fool the system into thinking that the template you added was actually done with the new section button. In general, regular summaries are not only fine, but preferred and the only thing that makes any sense. Hope that helps. — DeFender1031*Talk 01:08, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] 8-Bit is Enough request

Do you think you could do the images of Munchox and Bubs being trapped Marzipan (as the Lady Crate Ape)? I've been dying to waiting for these images to come up! DarthWill3 00:48, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

My Mac has no SD slot, so there's no way for me to transfer pictures from the Wii to the Wiki. I'm sorry. BBG 17:44, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
There's always this link. It'll be easier to upload, once you find it on the walkthrough. DarthWill3 02:56, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
The Lady Crate Ape image was uploaded 10 months before you asked:File:LadyCrateKong.PNG BBG 01:42, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Crystal Fortress

Figure I should let you know that ONLY the intro and Strong Bad's attempt at derailing the song in the middle are Powered by The Cheat. The rest of Crystal Fortress is not. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 00:04, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

No, I can tolerate The Cheat's cartoons. What really turned me off at first was the fact it's been so long since they made a "PBTC" cartoon with a story. BBG 16:08, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

[edit] I'm Not Dead

This summary was supposed to say, "Something tells me the departure won't last *that* long a time." Not "departer". I know few care, but I just wanted to get that off my chest. BBG 15:57, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
