[edit] Hello

Hi, Fangoriously, welcome to the Homestar Runner Wiki. It's a wonderful idea to do cleanup like you did here, here, and here, but adding onomatopoeia's like you did here isn't really helpful, because here, we like to leave out those kind of things. So, keep up the good work, and welcome once again! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 05:37, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

I'm aiming to be a big level person, and I'm using the sbemails as a start! --Fangoriously 05:41, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
If you want talk page posts to be indented like this, put a : before your comment, and it'll indent it. Make sure you add as many of : as it takes to make it be aligned correctly. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 05:43, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
My mission is to clean up all the pages, starting with the sbemails. --Fangoriously 20:32, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Blockquote Classes

Hi there, I'm curious why you've been removing the computer name from the classes of blockquotes. If i recall correctly, them things are important. Would you mind enlightening me? — Defender1031*Talk 20:54, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Compy emails and Lappy emails blockquotes look the same, except for the Lappy having a subject line, but only when you give one. --Fangoriously 21:03, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
It's still probably a good idea to have it, you don't know what special stuff might be going on behind the scenes... — Defender1031*Talk 21:05, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Well, nothing special's going on behind the scenes yet, but having the computer name in the blockquotes means it'd be easy enough to add something behind the scenes in the future, if we ever want to. --phlip TC 21:20, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Why am I capable

Why am I capable of uploading files and moving pages?

Because you're a user. I am too. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:22, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
But the upload page has said it was limited to users that were autoconfirmed (?), sysops, or bots! And I know that new accounts can't move stuff! --Fangoriously 02:23, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Autoconfirmed means that the server has confirmed you as a user. It takes a few days. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:25, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] New Paper

Fangoriously, I've Replied to Your Message, See... My Talk/New Paper for details. Wi2K Talk-Favorites-173 11:29, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Your Test

Thanks for experimenting with the Homestar Runner Wiki. Your test (best) worked, and has now been reverted or removed. Please use HRWiki:Sandbox for any other tests you want to do, since testing in articles will normally be reverted quickly. Please see the Help:Editing page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our resource. Thanks. — Defender1031*Talk 01:47, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Sysops

Hey there Fangoriously! What's up? I couldn't help but notice that you seem to have an admirable desire to become a sysop. Just to let you know, edits like this probably aren't going to get you anywhere. I suggest you read these helpful tips, and just keep doing your part to make this encyclopedia even more vast and extensive. Edits like this and this are a great start, keep up the good work! —Guard Duck talk 19:29, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

I should point out at this point that very few wiki users are ever given sysop status. At the time of typing, there are only 26 sysops on this wiki and this number will only increase every few years or so. To be honest though, the only real differences between a regular editor, like you or me, and a sysop are that a sysop can protect and delete pages and block and unblock users. You can see the problems that would occur if everyone was allowed to be a sysop! However, if you continue to make good edits like the ones above, you will become a well-respected and highly trusted contibutor. Who knows, maybe in a few years when it's time to nominate new sysops, you'll be considered! – The Chort 19:44, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Nice Userpage

I like your Virus'd virus userpage. That's really cool.-Record307 Talk/Contribs 20:41, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! As well as randomly inserting gibberish in sections, I made some other changes, like changing "transcript" to "tandyscript", and Strong Bad using a program called "Homsar the Virus Hunter" to find "MORE THAN ONE" virus. --Fangoriously! Chat 23:51, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Another note: I got the idea for my cool userpage from a comment on virus's talk page. It said to make that page look virus'd, but it was rejected because this is a knowledge base. --Fangoriously! Chat 23:54, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
I know.-Record307 Talk/Contribs 02:47, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
Next, my userpage will be a virus'd Main Page 22 page. It will go back to virus after a while. --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 03:22, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
Whoah! Good Luck!-Record307 Talk/Contribs 19:26, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
You missed the Main Page 22. It's virus now. --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 19:37, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
Aw, man! I MISS EVERYTHING!!!!!-Record307 Talk/Contribs 19:49, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
I'll change it back now. --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 19:55, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
Whoah! That is awesome! A Virus'd virus main page!-Record307 Talk/Contribs 22:54, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I know. Very cool. --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 00:11, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] To make your sig work

In your user preferences, put {{User:Fangoriously/SIGGY HERE}} in the box that says "Signature" and make sure you have the "Raw Signature" box checked. Then all you have to do to sign is put 4 tildes (~~~~) and it'll put your sig and a timestamp. On a side not, if you want only the part that says "Chat" linked without including the parenthasis, i can fix that for you as well. — Defender1031*Talk 01:53, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Hey Deffy, I think it works! I have an awesome sig. --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 02:03, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
That's totally awesome! Glad i could help. — Defender1031*Talk 02:07, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] user Page Validity

Your user page's validity is being broken by your mainnav: {{mainnav|dhtr|23}}. I suggest you do something about it. ColdReactive 15:24, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

I'll delete it. --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 15:25, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Thank you, just making sure people abide by validity as I had to do with my signature ColdReactive 15:29, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

[edit] virus'd

Aw man, virus has to be one of my absolute favorite Strong Bad Emails ever! That's a sweet theme for your user page. Make sure to also drop a train on 'em! C-Son-L Sweaters 00:15, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, but I won't drop any trains! Just joking. Thanks for the compliment! --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 00:22, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

No prob bob. C-Son-L Sweaters 19:32, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] M-Dash

To do an em dash, just simply type in the code "—" — and presto, you have a long dash. wbwolf (t | ed) 00:31, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 02:14, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Congraturations, <---Insert Name Here--->!

Congraturations, Fangoriously! You've won this week's trivia! If you have not done so already, go to the sandbox, click on "edit", go down to where the userbox part is and copy and paste the code (including the {userboxtop} and |} parts, too, since you don't have a userbox tower yet). That's all for today. Thank you for competing and I hope to see you around the time of next Thursday for the the next Trivia Challenge. Well, see ya' round. This is a slightly modified version of a recorded message that will appear on the user talk page of any user who has won a pentuple trivia challenge and the message will end now. {end message} CrabAttack1999 22:41, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

I don't like userbox towers. I like single boxes. --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 22:46, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Okay, that's cool. Like I said above, next trivia challenge will be around or on Thursday, December 17, 2009. So, if you'd like, you may compete next week. Next week's challenge will be a good one and it will involve decoding things. It will be harder than this challenge, but anyone who has won so far should be able to do it with a little bit of researching for information. Hope to see you there! CrabAttack1999 22:56, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Combolations!

congrats, Fangoriously! you are the winner of the Mystery Phrase! also, you may put the name of the person who said it too! make sure, when you go to other peoples userboxes, tell them about my Mystery Phrase post! thanks and once again, congrats! Jibblejibblejibble 20:17, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] About the new wiki...

Are you gonna spread it out more? Y'know to other places? BHS · Talk to me

What do you mean by that? --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 13:37, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
So far, I think we're the only people there. Any ideas on how to spread the news? BHS · Talk to me
No, not really. --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 21:25, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
