[edit] Using Show Preview

Hello Dom, I see that you have made several consecutive edits to the same page. I want to point out the Show Preview button. It's right next to the Save Page button when you edit. You should use it whenever you are making a lot of experimental edits, for example when you are trying to get formatting right. Using the Show Preview button is quicker and easier than saving and clicking "edit" again, and will keep recent changes and page histories from being flooded. Thanks, — DeFender1031*Talk 12:50, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi there, Dom... It's good to see you're working on your sig, but I'd like to mention again the "Show preview" button next to the "Save page" button – if you use that, you can see what you've changed without saving the page, which is easier than saving and clicking "edit" again, and it doesn't fill up Recent changes with your edits. Keep on trangling, --phlip TC 09:10, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Aw, man. I've been mashin' up on that preview button, a few save pages must have sneaked through! --- Dom •talk• 09:14, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Hey, no problem... as long as you get it sometimes, it's all good :-) --phlip TC 09:35, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Costume

Augh! I don't even wanna KNOW how you got on the website! (Translation, good jorb, and welcome to the wiki. If you have any questions about anything, feel free to ask me or any of the other experienced editors here. Don't ask me how that translates to this, mine is a weird language.) — DeFender1031*Talk 12:50, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome! Long time lurker, even longer time fan :) --Dom 16:07, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
I see. Well, nice to see you're showing a little less lurk and a little more skulk. By the way, it's also customary to keep conversations in one place, like i did here. Keep on trangling, and let me know if you need anything. — DeFender1031*Talk 16:12, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Cool, many-a-thank. Would you know why I can't access the Upload file page? I did confirm my email. --Dom 16:16, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
It takes a couple of days before the system allows new users to upload files. We want to make sure people aren't gonna use uploads as another method of vandalism, as we already have enough trouble with the regular type. Don't worry, you'll be able to upload in a few days. — DeFender1031*Talk 16:18, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Ah, course. No worries just wanted to add a pic to my user page. --Dom 16:20, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
In doo time, cadet Dom. In doo time. — DeFender1031*Talk 16:25, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Oh, doo time. Even better! Looks like I have the rights. I'm takin' this baby TO THE MOOOOOOON!! Now I just wonder how you get those fancy pantsy colourful signatures? --Dom 16:02, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
Take a look at HRWiki:Signature and Help:Signature. As for the gradient in my signature... well, it's a proprietary technique i can't reveal! (Okay, fine, i wrote a script to generate gradients...) — DeFender1031*Talk 16:29, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
Take a look there, I think she's lookin' pretty good! --- Dom •talk• 09:04, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

You could have done with the Ab-Abber 2000! You know, for the perfect touch to your costume. – The Chort 20:20, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

I dunno man, they're already bulging all over the place as it is, they're already all up ons! --- Dom •talk• 14:40, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Skateboarding and MM

Hi, Dom. Thanks for making a new article for us. Do note though that while Mellow Mushroom has an article on the wiki to allow us to compare it to Homestar Runner, we do not cover anything but Homestar Runner in appearance lists. We are, after all, the Homestar Runner Wiki, not the Complete Works of TBC Wiki. That's why the MM ref you added is being removed repeatedly. If you really think there's a reason it needs to be included, please bring it up on the talk page. Thanks! Heimstern Läufer 13:18, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

No problem, thanks! I didn't realise why my edit wasn't being saved so I rewrote it, sorry! - Dom •talk• 13:19, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
