[edit] User Quote

"500 hits!!! Man, you guys really don't give a friggin' crap like this page, don't you?"-'SupremeRulerOfSBadia' 28, Nov. 2005

Thanks, that'll be my quote for tommorow. — talk Bubsty edits 00:48, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

"How many lemons would it take to drown all the fish in the sea? about 956436789543.0000004, depending on the size of the lemons." How's that for a quote?-- Benol, aka Coach B 16:55, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

Great, thanks! — talk Bubsty edits 17:18, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] History Repeating

Seriously, what's up with responding to comments left months earlier? That's four now. Could this be a previously undocumented medical condition? —AbdiViklas 05:24, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

Abdi is right, you should just take the time to read the dates they were posted on. There's really no point in responding to it a few months later. Homestramy20|Talk 05:27, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
Sorry. It just so happens I have this thing with my brain that like... won't let me read timestamps. No, actully, some of them were my fault, and I should be whipped for that. But some, I think it doesn't hurt to answer them. Like if someone asks a question I know the answer to I'll answer it, not just for the asker's benifet, but also for any other readers who have the same problem. — talk Bubsty edits 05:34, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
Yeah; this would be an example of that. But in cases where some IP asked a stupid question that's been ignored for months, it's best not to disturb nature's delicate balance. —AbdiViklas 05:41, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
Ok, I won't anymore. — talk Bubsty edits 06:34, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Apologies

My apologies. The wiki I am from doesn't require people to discuss uncontroversial moves before hand. I'll be more considerate in the future. BrokenSegue 06:42, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Just being curious, what wiki were you from? - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)
It's ok. Just warning you. — talk Bubsty edits 18:45, 25 November 2005 (UTC)
"the wiki", Wikipedia. (Wikipedia:User:BrokenSegue, I'm an admin/sysop/op there) BrokenSegue 07:41, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
I was gonna comment on this a while ago, but I just ... didn't. I I just wanted to mention, that I think the difference in culture between that wiki and ours is that almost nothing is an uncontroversial move. By that I mean that even the slightest letter, or slightest technical issue ensues into a "heated" debate. :) And that precision spills over into page names. I wish I had examples I could link to but I couldn't come up with any off the top of my head. So don't worry too much, it's just a cultural difference in some sense. And those usually lead to misunderstandings. That said, welcome to the wiki! --Stux 16:50, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
Isn't our wiki really annoying that way? — talk Bubsty edits 01:11, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Yes, especially how you guys vote on Fun Facts and other things. If I have a fun fact, I'm just going to add it. If you don't think it's "fun" or "interesting" you can remove it with an explanation. I doubt people would come to blows over this. *sigh* Alright, I'll stop bothering you now. BrokenSegue 03:58, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
I wouldn't. It's up to other people to STUFF fun facts. I believe the STUFF maker is furrykef, who's also a sysop at "your" wiki. — talk Bubsty edits 04:09, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Oh, you doubt? But actually I don't think it's annoying. Frustrating, at times, yes, but it's a byproduct of the fact that this is a fansite, focused on one body of work. At the Big Wiki the bioengineers don't give a crap about the literary historians' issues, neither of whom are particularly concerned about the hot topics in Balkan exports. Here, we're like, say, a bunch of Egyptologists all studing one dig site. Everybody has the same field of interest, and every edit is essentially peer-reviewed. Although this makes work slower, I think it ultimately makes it better. What our wiki culture lacks in spontaneity, perhaps, it makes up for in accuracy, which I think is ultimately a more desirable quality for a knowledge base.
And BrokenSegue, I like Stux's mention of culture; it is essentially a cultural difference, and I hope, instead of being scared away by it, you ultimately get acclimated and think of it not as "you guys" but as "us." Also I apologize for just doing the very thing you're talking about—respond in a big way to a minor detail!AbdiViklas 04:23, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Woah, hold your horses there Abdi. I lost you after that first sentence there. — talk Bubsty edits 04:25, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
I may point out that Abdi has a history of making extremely lengthy (but still interesting) essay-like replies to a variety of topics... But it's all true. --DorianGray
So I see. — talk Bubsty edits 04:36, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
The Reader's Digest version: Yeah, HRWiki culture seems petty. But it means a better product. —AbdiViklas 04:42, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
I like our wiki better this way. I think it's because the wikipedia is so huge that to monitor every little detail would be too much. We are just a branch of it, so it's a lot smaller and easier to take track of. We can use the time to refine our mini-wiki. --SaltyTalk! 22:38, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Actully, this wiki isn't that small compared to others. I think there was a discussion of this on the main page talk page. — talk Bubsty edits 23:50, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, but-- wait. this is way too far to the right.

ok, so as I was saying, HRWiki is still nowehere near the size of the wikipedia. Plus, this wiki is only one subject, H*R, so it's easier to debate something where everybody knows what their talking about. Whatever. I have seen some small wikis though. I think some may be new. --SaltyTalk! 03:20, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Such as the eskimo bob wiki. i'm a user there... but its not very cool. i dont like eskimo bob much. — talk Bubsty edits 03:23, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Welcome back

Good to see you're back :) Homestramy20|Talk 05:49, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
Me too. False alarm, no one got very hurt, and I'm still alive. So yes, I'm back. Thanks. — talk Bubsty edits 05:50, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
Holy cow! Whatever happened, did it involve time travel? Like, you travel either backward or forward and everything gets sorted out and you come back exactly 20 minutes after your last post with a complete reversal of fortune!! Anyway... glad we didn't lose you there. I just said the same thing on my talk page, but you're an affirmer. That's good. —AbdiViklas 06:37, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
No, one of my friends got hospitalised. Er... hospitalized. Um... how do you spell that? Either way, he's ok now. I think I'll say somethin bout it on my user page. — talk Bubsty edits 17:00, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Fanstuff

Hey, by any chance, do you know where to send in stuff for the weekly Fanstuff? - Madbird Talk 02:41, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

You mean the fanstuff's weekly fanstuff, or the homestarrunner weekly fanstuff? — talk Bubsty edits 02:47, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

It's a good way to communicate directly with specific users. The best way to respond, though, is on the same user page where the conversation was started.

Sincerely, — talk Bubsty edits and The Homestarrunner Welcoming Committee. NOTE: It was just now, that I realized I had never been welcomed. Ever. *sniff.* So... I welcomed myself.

What?? No one welcomed you? That's awful. Poor Bubsty. Please take an unofficial Weclome from me as well.
On a related note, I've always wanted to see a new user find the welcome template and welcome themselves one day... It would be interesting, and cheeky. People would comment. --DorianGray
Thanks Dorian, you rule. — talk Bubsty edits 06:05, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

2. Favorite character is definately Homsar.

3. Favorite toon... thats hard. Maybe Cool Things, or The Interview.

talk Bubsty edits 05:13, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Reply from Nikolce

Hey there, Nikolce here, got your message, we kinda have something in common, i to like homsar, but then again i can't pick one, all the main characters are great. The interview is what i like to:"STRONG BAD: {groaning} Ohhhh. Moving on. I've heard you enjoy prancing around like an idiot. Is this true?

{Homestar is outside prancing around.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: La-dee-la-da-da-la-dee.

STRONG BAD: I suppose that answers my question.

and the Homsar interview as well: STRONG BAD FIGURE: Okay, interview over. Commence beating!

{Strong Bad has the Strong Bad Post-it beat the Homsar Post-it. The doorbell rings.}

STRONG BAD: Whoa! That'll be the Cheat with my Thai iced tea! Come on in!

anyway, so your user name on wiki is the same,right?

Nikolce Kocovski 08:45, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

Yes it is. — talk Bubsty edits 17:04, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Adding a page-response

Thanks for the info, but I put that up a while ago, so I do know how to create a page now, but the question would be where and when and that sort of stuff. It was just an idea I had, for anyone who got something of theirs put on the site, like an email or fanstuff, or anything like that. Time is not a problem! Just do me a favor and if you know or notice anyone who did get lucky, remember that to see how many people you can get.--Martin925 04:31, 5 December 2005 (UTC) Retrieved from ""

Ok. Jus' checkin. — talk Bubsty edits 04:37, 5 December 2005 (UTC)
