These Peoples Try to Fade Me

[edit] Thundercolor

Hey Dot com. I noticed you gave me a color pointer on my talk page, which I'm greatful for. But what I didn't get was your pick? Which is your favorite? Thanks, ?Thunderbird? 03:42, 16 May 2005 (UTC)

My favorite is the one that's the easiest to read: #CD9B1D — It's dot com
Oh, my bad. You were there. Sorry 'bout that. I think it was because of the two different styles of sig, or something. I dunno. I need more sleep... ?Thunderbird? 14:43, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
No probalo. — It's dot com 15:45, 16 May 2005 (UTC)

[edit] That one guy

Hey man, I put your link on my page. Change it if you don't like the way it's linked. Everything is up for discussion on my page, go ahead and talk all you want and encourage others to do so also. Thechamp 02:58, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Thanks. — It's dot com

Thanks for all your help, um... where can I talk with people again? -it's that annoying guy again!

Well, it's late. A lot of people are probably going to bed soon. Most people like to talk when something happens, like the release of a new toon. So check back on Monday. — It's dot com 04:41, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, It is late, isn't it. I'm surprised you, BazukaJoe, and some other guy, are still awake... I'm too tired to spell rite.

Listen, In the morn' discuss the stuff I gots on me' page, if I'm around...n' stuff. Thechamp 04:49, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)Thechamp

Sure. — It's dot com 04:53, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Hey! It's dot com, are you awake? Thechamp 15:16, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Anyone know how long your supposed to cook beef stu? Thechamp 18:20, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Sorry about the edditing, I just neede to get your attention. Can you tell me who usually goes on the forums? Thechamp 18:24, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Hundreds of people. Many of them are on this wiki. Many of them aren't. —BazookaJoe 18:51, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)

How come no one is talking about my Idea that I had? I thought it was good, does no one else think so? Thechamp 18:35, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)

This isn't exactly the wiki where people care about story ideas. Fanstuff like that goes on the Fanstuff wiki. —BazookaJoe 18:51, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Martin F.

Hey, Its Martin F. lol Thanks for the inspiration. You and I both have a similar experience with being introduced wih Homestar. You do a great job editing. See you around the Wiki! --Martin925 03:02, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Thanks, Martin. See ya 'round! — It's dot com 20:07, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Go Bearcats!

Are you from missouri or the area? The Bearcats aren't well known outside the area.. --Adamlw 05:17, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Actually, no, I'm not. I've only been to Missouri a handful of times. I confess I looked it up. Go google! — It's dot com 05:22, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Signature

Hi, It's dot com. I need your help.. your the only one I really trust to have enough patients with me! Anydangways, could you help me figiure out how to make my signiture stand out? I notice that alot of people do that, but I have no clue how. Homestramy20 06:45, 30 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Oh, never mind. The Paper helped me Homestramy20|Talk 06:48, 30 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Glad you got that worked out. I made a couple of code tweaks for you so that the date would show up correctly on the same line as the sig. Wish I could've helped you more, but I've gotta sleep sometime. ;) — It's dot com 13:51, 30 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Thank you VERY MUCH

I want to say thank you for being concerned, the whole situation was awkward and strange, but in the end i'm glad to know that you cared. It's great to have such a great friend here on HRWiki. Homestramy20|Talk 23:58, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

Always. And should you need anything, don't hesitate to ask. — It's dot com 00:39, 18 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Fanstuff Wiki

Thank you for telling me. Man, I feel stupid right now... --thatkidsam 19:23, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Don't feel dumb. Stuff like that happens to all of us. — It's dot com 19:34, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Pronounced with an "RWiki"

This is a bit trivial, but an interesting fact. As you know, I'm all hung up on England, and even spent three weeks there. In response to your question 'wouldn't it be pronounced aitch-are-wiki?', the answer is 'no'. Not in England. Just the same way they pronounce the letter Z as 'zed', they also put an H sound in front of H, making it 'haitch' or something thereof. I'm not sure if this is of significance, but it's an interesting fun-fact nonetheless. I think so, anyway. But since the Wiki (and H*R itself) are American-based, your 'an HRWiki namespace' would technically be correct. --DorianGray

What do I think of the English, huh? Oh, I'll tell you what I think of the English! {the rest of this post has been BANNED IN THE U.K.}It's dot com

[edit] Archives.org

I wasn't sure where to ask this, but you seem to know alot. So what exactly is this archives.org that people keep retrieving treasures from? How does it really work, and would you be able to provide me with an answer to my question on Talk:some kinda robot? Thunderbird 05:50, 29 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I'm not really all that familiar with that, TBird. You might try the FAQ talk. — It's dot com

[edit] From Nikolce Kocovski

[edit] Greetings

Hey there It's dot com, i got your message from my talk page thanks for the greeting.

I'm new to Homestar runner wiki, but i'm also a member of Wikipedia it self, so i know about this (~) to write my name, and how to upload images ETC.

Lets get to know each other a bit:

  1. How did you find me so quickly?
  2. whats your real name?
  3. whats your speciality in Hrwiki?
  4. are you a member of wikipedia? if so whats your user name?

hope so see your reply.

Nikolce Kocovski 06:05, 29 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Well, Nikolce...
  1. I saw you create your user page in the recent changes.
  2. Ben.
  3. Read all about me on my user page.
  4. I edit Wikipedia as an anonymous user from time to time, but I'm not a member.
Again, welcome to the wiki! — It's dot com 06:11, 29 Sep 2005 (UTC)

by the way it's dot com, when you reply, reply the message to my talk page, it's just easier to know i have s new message, but thats if you want to. Nikolce Kocovski 04:45, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Actually, Nikolce, I'm a big believer in keeping threads in one place. But you're welcome to add me to your watchlist if you want, at least until you get a reply. — It's dot com 05:07, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Pledge Drive

Hey ther It's dot com, how have you been i myself have been doing great. Let me ask you something, what happens if Homestar runner wiki doesn't get the 2005 Fall Pledge Drive money? Nikolce Kocovski 01:53, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Hello, Nikolce. I'm just fine. Glad to hear you're doing well. I don't know the exact answer to your question. You should ask JoeyDay. — It's dot com 02:04, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Meaning

Hey there it's dot com, how have you been, can i ask you something, what does this mean:Thank you! The Homestar Runner Wiki raised over $980 in its 2005 Fall Pledge Drive. Unfortunately, we didn't reach our pledge drive goal. You're still welcome to make a donation.

We apologize, but due to circumstances beyond our control, new-user registration and anonymous editing have been disabled. If you are the vandal responsible, please email mail_icon.giftom@hrwiki.org. Thank you.

Also whats your Top 10 Sb emails, and your botton 10?

Nikolce Kocovski 06:55, 18 November 2005 (UTC)

I'll let It's dot com field the favorites, but I can answer your question about the header. I'm not sure which part of it you were asking about, but:
  • The Pledge Drive was a time to encourage users to donate money voluntarily to help pay for the wiki's costs (explained in that link). It's a way of raising money that some organizations use over here, especially public radio. We didn't raise as much money as we had hoped; discussion about that is at HRWiki_talk:2005_Fall_Pledge_Drive#Looking_ahead.
  • We had to stop letting people register as users, or edit pages if they weren't users, because of an attack by a vandal who used over 1,000 usernames to vandalize pages.
  • By the way, I'm not sure which internet browser you're using, but FireFox has a plugin that lets you click on a word to look it up in an online dictionary. I can imagine this being very helpful to people for whom English is not their first language; if there's an English-to-Macedonian online dictionary, you could even customize it to that! —AbdiViklas 03:07, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Hey there It's dot com

Nick here, how have you been, i've been doing great, can i ask you something, fo you happen to knoe some people called AbdiViklas, Heimstern Läufer, Sir strong bad, and bubsty?

Nikolce Kocovski 06:30, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

Sure, I know them all. — It's dot com

[edit] Something in common

Greetings there it's dot com, how have you been, i've been doing great, i saw on your user page and we have something in common, i too like simpsons and family guy, but i have a couple of questions(is there another word for question) regarding this and other unrelated topics:

  1. don't you like the recent episodes of simpsons?
  2. don't you like a cartoon made by the simpsons called futurama?
  3. what have you been up to?
  4. do you know a user by the name of elvis?
  5. did you have a bulling problem in school?

Nikolce Kocovski 11:27, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

My, Nikolce, what interesting questions you have.
  1. I don't like the new Simpsons episodes. I haven't liked them since about the time Maude died and Barney got sober, around six years ago. When the show first aired, the episodes had a completely different feel. The plots were more straightforward, a lot of the humor was biting and satirical, and the characters had heart and soul. One of my favorite episodes (#7F19) is when Lisa's teacher thinks she has Lyme disease and a substitute teaches her class. I found it to be so moving that nearly fifteen years later, as I type this, I still get a little misty-eyed. Nowadays, however, the plots jump all over the place (if there even is a plot to speak of), and it's unusual for story elements introduced in the first act to figure into the last act at all. The humor has lost its edge and is more wacky and non-sequitur (like a bad imitation of Family Guy) or just plain stupid. They seem to have run out of ideas and just rehash the same tired, unfunny running gags. The characters, which used to be more well-rounded, are one-dimensional shells of their former selves. I guess somewhere along the line the writers realized you can't have real character growth if your cast never ages. What saddens me most is that younger viewers, some of whom weren't even born during the early years, think that what they're churning out now is as good as it's ever been, and that's just not so. *sigh*
  2. Yes, I like Matt Groening's other main creation, Futurama. Being set in the future and largely in space means they can get away with more, and overall I appreciate at as a silly diversion kind of show. I'm not an avid fan or anything, but if I happen to catch an episode here or there on Cartoon Network, then I'll watch.
  3. Well, besides work, getting ready for Christmas, and working on the wiki, I'd say not much.
  4. No, I've never heard of a user by that name before today.
  5. Heh, do you mean was I a bully, or was I bullied by other kids? Either way, the answer is no, not really. Not more than normal kid stuff. What makes you ask?
It's dot com 17:27, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

If you go to my user page you'll see why i asked. Which is your favourite episode and which is your funniest episode? By the way, would you consider homestar runner to be a bit like simpsons: having lots of stuff from real life? Nikolce Kocovski 02:02, 10 December 2005 (UTC)


[edit] Trolls?

Hey ther It's dot com, how have you been this fine couple of days, i've been doing great anyway onto business:

i have a question for you, whats a troll?

Nikolce Kocovski 04:47, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

I hope It's dot com won't mind me answering the last part for him: In Scandinavian mythology, trolls are monsters. On the internet, the word is used for people who try to harm a particular community instead of help it. The way we use it is well explained at HRWiki:Glossary#T and also this discussion. —AbdiViklas 05:08, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
And even better explained here. — talk Bubsty edits 05:14, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

wasn't a troll a monster in overall fantasy eg:lord of rings, warcraft, dungeons and dragons etc?

Nikolce Kocovski 07:37, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

Yes, that's also true. They also appear in Harry Potter, and I have a quote on my user page that refers to that. But here on the Wiki, we use the term to refer to vandals who try to screw up the Wiki. Sometimes they add useless (and often offensive) messages to the pages, sometimes they delete material from the pages, sometimes they change the page titles to nonsense, sometimes they create useless pages. As good users, it's our job to fix whatever they screw up and report them to the sysops, because the sysops can block them from editing. Heimstern Läufer 07:41, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
It looks like you guys have covered everything here. — It's dot com

[edit] Chaps

Hey there it's dot com, how have you been, i've been doing great. Can i ask you something, do you think the brothers chaps are aware of Homestar runner wiki? Nikolce Kocovski 06:11, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

I don't mind if people ask me general questions like this, but it's kind of irksome when they turn right around and ask the same question somewhere else. — It's dot com 15:12, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Ps: have you answered my previous message, before the troll one, then one i added after you answered my original questions, particularly sompsons? Nikolce Kocovski 06:11, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

No, I don't have a favorite Simpsons episode. — It's dot com 15:12, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Sorry if i asked you the question about the brother chaps to you, it's just that i get annoyed when i ask a simple question on a discussion page, but no one answers it, sorry. Nikolce Kocovski 08:23, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

It's not that big a deal. You actually asked me first, but then posted the same question one minute later. Just try to keep discussions in one place. Rock, rock on. — It's dot com

[edit] Merry Christmas

Hey there it's dot com, how have you been, i've been doing great. I just wanted to say, merry christmas and a happy and safe holiday. thanks for all the kind messages you've been sending me. happy holiday. Nikolce Kocovski 04:57, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

A very merry Christmas to you, my friend! And a very cheery Decemberween, too! — It's dot com 18:47, 25 December 2005 (UTC)
Merry Christmas and Fröhliche Weihnachten from H*L, too, and thanks for all your help around the wiki. I'm sure I'd never had become as active a contributor as I am without your help. Heimstern Läufer 00:57, 26 December 2005 (UTC)
My pleasure! :) — It's dot com 00:58, 26 December 2005 (UTC)
Yeah it took me long enough to get around to say this but... Merry Christmas Dot com! Yeah it's been hard to post a heck of a whole lot, esp with dialup. But it's good to be able to nevertheless! New year's a comin' ... soon! Aaaaaaah! <insert girlish scream> ;) --Stux 06:37, 27 December 2005 (UTC)
Girlish scream? Wow, Stux, is it even earilier there than it is here? Merry Christmas, It's dot com. — Lapper (talk) 06:55, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Happy New Year

Happy new year and all the best wishes, see you around. Nikolce Kocovski 05:46, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

Happy New Year, Nikolce! Have a fantastic 2006 (and beyond)! — It's dot com 06:46, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

I know it's a little late, I just wanted to wish you a happy new year, and may archive your long friggin' talk page this year! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 10:40, 2 January 2006 (UTC)


[edit] What do you like most about Homestar Runner?

Hey there it's dot com (can i call you dot com) how have you been, i've been doing great, anyway the question i'm asking you is the title. see you around wiki, rock rock on! Nikolce Kocovski 10:11, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Hey Nikolce. Yes you can call me Dot com (see the top of my user page). My favorite joke is the one where I got my name (homestarrunner.net ... It's dot com), partially because it was the first joke I ever saw. The first email I saw was japanese cartoon, and that may be the hardest I've ever laughed. I like just about everything on the site, but in particular I like the live Puppet Stuff where Matt, playing Homestar, is interacting with an audience or an interviewer, because that's usually comic gold! — It's dot com 16:37, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] i'm back!

Hey there dotty (probably how homestar would say it), how have you been, i've been doing fantastic, i was on a 10 day holiday with my family to the gold coast. it was great. i've forgot to tell you, i've written it on my user page, but i removed it today. so how have you been these last couple of days since the 5/1/06? Ps: Whats happened to bubsty? i just checked he's user page and that was written was bye wiki, what going on? Nikolce Kocovski 03:26, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

I'm glad to hear that your vacation was good. I haven't been up to much... just helpin' to keep down the fort. Bubsty decided that he was spending to much time online and decided to take an extended break. That's about all I know about that. Good to see you again! — It's dot com 03:32, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] what happened

Hey it's dot com, what happened to your discussion page? Nikolce Kocovski 01:48, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

well, he archived it. this means that at the top, you can just go to the links and they will lead you to the headlines. pretty cool, huh?
Yeah, I just couldn't take all the whining from all you guys anymore. ;) But I figured out a compromise between keeping all the talk on this page and moving it all to an archive, so I went with it. — It's dot com 21:07, 23 January 2006 (UTC)
i wasn't whining. Nikolce Kocovski 00:39, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
I know. But take a look through the archives and you'll find quite a few requests for me to do so, and there were innumerable chat conversations to that effect as well. — It's dot com 01:17, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] guess what happened to me

Heloo there It's dot com, how are you, i've been doing great. About the heading, check out my talk page and user page, and you'll see what happened. Have you every got a similar award? Nikolce Kocovski 07:40, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Cool, man. — It's dot com 23:28, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, keep in mind, Nikolce, that the pizza trophy is superior to the Iron cup of beef brunswick stew. This means that that trophy is one of the greatest trophies you can get. Seriously (Talk) 00:14, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

wow, is there some sort of "lost of tropies or something?

Nikolce Kocovski 05:47, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

Yes. Check the Barnstars page. There's a lot of trophies you can get. Seriously (Talk) 16:44, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Userboxes?

Hey there dotty, how are these last couple of days. can i ask you something, i've been looking at people user pages, and i've been finding these things called userboxes? what are they?

is there a list of them or something?

Nikolce Kocovski 06:36, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

I might be able to help here. A list is located at HRWiki:Userboxes, as well as directions on how to add them to your page. Let me know if you need any help adding some, if you want to do so. Thunderbird 06:37, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Thunderbird, let me say sorry, about this message. Its because i don't like to order people around, but my user page is a bit of a mess, actually its chaos, please help its urgent. thanks a bunch. Nikolce Kocovski 08:06, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Nikolce, if you say please, it's perfectly fine. Don't worry about politeness, because it seems you almost unconsciously type in polite ways. Seriously (Talk) 23:46, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Message from Nikolce Kocovski

Greetings Dotty, how are you. I havn't spoken with you in a while. how have you been these couple of weeks? Nikolce Kocovski 11:32, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

Uhh Dotty, where are you, are you busy or something? Nikolce Kocovski 01:54, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
Hello, Nikolce. I'm fine, and I hope you're well. Yeah, life can be kind of hectic sometimes. But we gotta keep on tranglin'! — It's dot com 03:14, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] I need some help

Hey there its dot com, how are you, how;s easter in america(if you celebrate it?)?

I need to ask you something, do you happen to know any Homestar runner wikipedias that are star wars fans?

by the way, happy easter

Nikolce Kocovski 01:35, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

A quick search in the user and user talk namespaces turns up a number of users who may be fans of Star Wars. Hope this helps. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 02:05, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] hello from Nikolce

Hi Its dot com, how have you been these last couple of uummm time?? Anyway how are you doing in school? By the way, are there any user that play warcraft 3 on battle net by any chance? Nikolce Kocovski 06:58, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

I've been doing well, Nikolce. I hope you're well as well. I don't currently go to school (I graduated from college six years ago). Sorry, but I'm not familiar with the game you mention. Keep on tranglin'. — It's dot com 16:36, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] long time no see

Hey there It's dot com, how have you been, havn't spoken in a long time, but now i can bacause its the school holidays for me. What's been happening with you?

Guess what: i recently had a maths and science test, and i got GOOD scores. 100% for science, and 107% for maths.

ps: i need to ask you something, you remember the time i asked you why you don't like the later seasons of simpsons, well on your userpage, it also says you don't like the later seasons of family guy either, whats the reason? Can i say , to me sometimes the recent episodes aren't the same as before. some of them use the same joke as before eg: marge and homer repeatetl arguing. Marge has changed alot, before she was a likeable character, now she seems.... different, do you get me?

Final note: What would be your favourite quotes of the simpsons, from the top of my head it's:

"And i say, a monkey can mown our lawn". Homer of the distance. "I fell 8000 feet onto a pile of jagged rocks". Abe Simpson. "(Austrian accent)Good-moring and welcome to advanced physics,1-0-1, i see alot of new faces, but as the old saying goes: "Out with the old, in with the Nuclues".(everyone laughs except homer). "Now let me just- whoops(drops notes). Homer stars laughing hard:"aha aha hah haha, a did you see that jerk, ah ah ah ha hah , AAAAAA he DROPED HE'S NOTES, AAAAAAA HAH HA H AH H aAAAAAAAAAA HA HA H A.

To me, this is one of my favourite episodes, mostly becasue i can make jokes to my brother about him being in University himself: "Have you spoken with your Austrian professor yet", and "Have you found your secret "Dungeons and Dragons lairr, thats has Nerds secretly studing and playing with characters at level 40" etc.

talk atch you later (sp) Nikolce Kocovski 05:17, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

i forget to ask you so so, something serious: How do you make those things on wiki that link to other websiter, like insted of having this website in full writing: http://youtube.com/watch?v=nf1VMk0o4Iw, you shorten it into a small thing, how's it done?

ps: at this video on youtube, go to the time 09:26, this is where the joke is where homer is laughing.

I can't say that I agree with Cartman (from South Park) very often, but his feelings about Family Guy pretty much sum up my own. Over the decades, I think The Simpsons went from a smart parody to resorting to disjointed, uneven plots. By the way, we've recently implemented a YouTube shortcut. — It's dot com 02:28, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Alphabetizing Categories and Catchin' Trolls

This seems like a good place to put stuff... I don't wanna clutter your talk by making new categories, that's why I keep piggybacking my messages. Ever thought of Archiving!? (gasp!) Hehe. Anyway on to buisness:

  • Ooooohhh! Right! So that's what it does. I thought it changed how the entry looked in the category list, and seeing no change, thought it did nothing. I had to remove it cuz it was autolinking to PseudoCharacters edit page, and I am sure I had created the link after I made the page. And I think I tried to purge... the hard way... Maybe? Anyway thanks for the fix!
  • BTW check out my first troll person report!

--Stux 16:10, 3 Oct 2005 (UTC)

    If a comment really is a continuation of an earlier thread, then go ahead and piggyback, but if it's a new thought, then it's perfectly fine to (and I prefer that you would) start a new thread. :) I reorganize my talk page from time to time and it helps me keep everything straight. As for archiving, I'm probably gonna put it off for at least a little bit longer. Only recently has this page exploded to the point that archiving would be necessary. If you want to see a page really in need of being split, look at Tom's talk page.
    As for the user who deleted things, well, he's not a troll. You may disagree with the things he deleted, but each example was something that is borderline. I even agree with a couple of them. Also, there's no reason to think that he saw the message left him in the edit summaries. Most anonymous users probably never look there.

I thought you of all people would know that it's against the rules to tamper with other people's comments. I'll let it slide this time, but try to be more careful in the future. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 15:46, 5 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Well, at least I justified it by doing it for no good reason whatsoever. ;) ...Seriously (and I know you said don't take it seriously), you can fix others' formatting to a point, so long as you don't change the content of their comments. And, for purely aesthetic value, those color words really needed to be colorized. I would have gone with green for "greediest" (which of course is not a color word, just different from "greatest"), but it was already taken by "greenest." — It's dot com 16:35, 5 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Likewise, I only replied (partly) seriously because I don't like comments to go unanswered, especially on my own talk page, and I couldn't think of what else to say.

[edit] Playing horn

Hey Dot com, thought you'd be interested to hear that I've been playing my horn again over the weekend for the Christmas programs at my church. It brings back a lot of old memories of playing Mozart concertos and stuff... anyway, I didn't really have any other reason for leaving a note on your talk page; just thought you'd be interested to hear that. Hope all's going well for you. Keep on tranglin'. Heimstern Läufer 06:19, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

I've considered playing at my church, but I'm more useful doing some kind of backstage technical job, like controlling the video screens or running the camera. This past Thanksgiving, during our annual family reunion, we thought it would be fun to put on an instrumental ensemble. (There are at least 40 who attend Thanksgiving each year, and about half that number agreed to play in the ensemble.) We were able to use the band hall at the local university (where my uncle happens to be the dean of the school of music). It was a blast! I hadn't played for real in so long, but it all came back. And we were actually good! As it turned out, there were already two horns, so I played trumpet. I even had the melody all by myself at one point. (Now I know why trumpets think they're such hot stuff.) Good times! — It's dot com 02:38, 20 December 2005 (UTC)
Good times, indeed. We're having a bit of a family ensemble soon: my sister is having a senior recital in a few months and my mom, sisters and I are playing a sextet for piano and winds (we also had to draft a clarinet-playing friend.) That should be a lot of fun. I don't think my family could work up a twenty-piece ensemble, though, because only my immediate family is musical (well, except for an aunt who teaches elementary music in Washington). I wish I could play horn a bit more, but there's so little time. Not to mention that voice just has so much more great solo music (seeing that Schubert alone wrote seven hundred some songs) and that you don't have to do quite as much to keep up the chops. Alas, I'll just have to make do with our sextet performance for now. Anydangway, keep on trnaglin'. Heimstern Läufer 06:31, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Hi from Thekillerdynamo

Hi.

Yeah, Im new to the wiki, and was on my brother, Bubsty's account so I by accident edited bkmlb's welcome thing instead of my talk page. I didnt mean to mess it up. Lo siento! --Thekillerdynamo
Yeah, I was in the shower, she was on MY computer, and messed it up. She accidently edited the template, by clicking on the edit tab on the "welcome!" subject line, and accidently edited it. Please, don't edit stuff like that Sarah... talk Bubsty edits 22:41, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
Welcome to the wiki, Sarah! Ask your brother to show you how to sign your name. Bubsty, what happened is that she edited his welcome template because it was linked on the page instead of being substituted. Whenever a welcome message is put on a talk page, it needs to use the subst command in the form: {{subst:welcome|parameters}} or {{subst:User:Username/welcome|parameters}}. That way, actual code gets placed on the page instead of a link to the template. I notice that both you and he have a lot of pages that need fixing. — It's dot com 00:48, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

If there is a person abusing the Wiki, or a page that doesn't have any need, there are ways of alerting sysops even if you're not one (add abusers to HRWiki:WikiTroll and add the "tobedeleted" template to bad pages.) --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 17:19, 23 January 2006 (UTC)
Both are gone but the main reason I want to be a sysop is so I can help the wiki as much a possible. --TheThin 17:21, 23 January 2006 (UTC)
It's admirable to want to help the wiki. We need as many people—sysops and users alike—who will do that.
    Around here, we consider several factors when choosing whom to make sysops, and the most important consideration is trustworthiness. A close second is participation in the project. Rounding out the top six are the ability to deal with other users (especially in mediating disputes or deciding when to step in), technical know-how, the necessity for another position (that is, whether or not the wiki needs more sysops at any given time), and finally seniority. (Number seven on the top-six list is senority, which is the ability to make bad H*R-related jokes.)
    With those things in mind, at this time I would not be comfortable with making you a sysop. Not long ago, you vandalized this wiki and less than a day ago you were blocked from the fanstuff wiki for persistent trolling. I think it will take a while for people to trust you again after that. Additionally, you currently don't meet the participation requirements. That is, you really don't have that many edits in the main or talk namespace nor have you done a big project. I haven't seen how you handle stress or abuse from problematic users and I don't know the status of your technical know-how (again, because I don't have a large sample of edits from which to judge). Last (and this one matters the least to me but is nevertheless important) there's the question of seniority: In other words, even if all else were equal, quite a few deserving people have been here a lot longer than you, and would thus be ahead of you in line whenever we promote the next user(s).
    Please don't think I'm trying to be overly discouraging, but your persistence in asking has made me want to be as unambiguous as possible. (By the way, asking for a position of power—no matter where you are (except maybe Wikipedia)—is a sure way to guarantee that the position will not be handed to you. Just so you know.) I encourage you to read the link above about the requirements and follow its advice. Over time, perhaps a long time, if you make good contributions and keep your nose clean, then you might be more seriously considered. Until then, keep on tranglin'. — It's dot com 18:45, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

The thing: Darn

Has Matt? (talk) 01:59, 24 January 2006 (UTC) P.S. No offense to either of you. I just found that funny.

One other thing, Thing: as I'm sure any of the sysops can tell you, it might not be as fun as it looks from the other side of the fence. It means a butteload of work, and a commitment to a certain amount of involvement and responsibilities. It's like the Spiderman thing (you know, "With great power...). (Except it doesn't come with the ability to swing through Manhattan streets in spandex.) Also, about helping the wiki: yeah, deleting pages and blocking folks help, but it's really only a small percentage of the work that improves the wiki: the bulk of it is regular users editting and reviewing each other's edits. In other words, you already have the power for the single biggest part of wiki-helping that goes on. —AbdiViklas 04:02, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
Nevermind I'm a sysop on My own wiki now. But it would still be cool to be one. TheThin 21:59, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

If I may throw in my own perspective on this, "with great power comes great responsibility." From what I've observed, being a sysop means making a lot of tough judgement calls, speaking nicely to people when you'd rather not, getting blamed for just about anything that goes wrong (real or perceived) and a lot of really hard work. Given all that, I'm not really clear on why someone would want that job so much, but I have nothing but admiration for the people who do it. Point7Q 01:37, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

I mean, Ciberdude's got my IM screenname and my email address, and he won't stop from either. I know you can't help me with this, but I think I have to make myself a little more discreet the next time I come on here. That's why I'm taking a break. Just act like I'm gone for good, okay? I'll be back soon, just not for a while. Thanks for all the privelages. Seriously (Talk) 03:41, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Admin sigs

Why do none of the admins excepy JoeyDay have customized their sigs? I'm thinking maybe you guys are too busy to do that stuff. Just wondering if you knew. Seriously (Talk) 22:47, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Well, that's not quite true, unless you have a very narrow definition of admin. If by admin you mean someone on the Admin Team, then Stu definitely has a signature. If you mean people who are on the Admin Team and are currently active in the day-to-day maintenance of the site, then you're right, only Joey has really customized his signature. Of the six of us, however, only AgentSeethroo has no customization to speak of. Tom, InterruptorJones, and I all have subtle modifications from the standard. If, on the other hand, when you say admins you mean sysops, then there is quite a bit of customization. Thunderbird and FireBird have had special sigs for as long as I can remember, as have Jay, Homestar Coder, Kilroy, and The Paper. Dr Haggis's modification is a slight tweak, and FortyTwo and Furrykef haven't been here in a while. Even GrapeNuts (a bot) has a sig. As for the heart of your question: Why do Tom, BazookaJoe, and I have more or less "plain" signatures? Well, Tom's is like that because he's ornery about such things. BazookaJoe's and mine are like that because it just looks right. Since everyone else goes to such great lengths to customize their signatures, not doing so becomes a customization in itself. — It's dot com 23:30, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Cool font. I meant the admin team, without the sysops, By the way. Stu, well I've never actually seen him make an edit. Although I did hear that he was joey's friend. I just think that if you have a sig, you should make it have more convenience, like having a link to your talk page. Thnaks for the answer. Seriously (Talk) 23:35, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

And Dot com has toyed with his signature in the past once or twice, a long while back. That special sig you just made looks pretty cool, if you ever did decide to change it for good. ;) Thunderbird 06:35, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
GrapeNuts has a sig? Dot com customizing his!? What is the world coming to!? This message is grapenuts.gif GrapeNuts (talk·edits·owner) approved (not really, I just wanted an excuse to use his sig :). --Stux 07:04, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
Weird. And you, thunderbird, had a blue sig. That scares me. Seriously (Talk) 05:10, 18 February 2006 (UTC)
Um, I just wanted to know what subtle modifications you, Tom, and InterruptorJones have on your sig. Do you mean past versions? Also, what is DrHaggis's slight tweak? Seriously (Talk) 01:25, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
Tom has a nonbreaking space in front of his (and used to have an empty link). I have an em dash. Interruptor Jones has both of those and uses small tags. Dr Haggis's real username is Drhaggis. All of us put the modifications directly in the preferences box, instead of using a sig template. — It's dot com 01:59, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
So you don't have to put an em dash alll the time? That's really cool. I think Ill do that. Seriously (Talk) 03:00, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Fanstuff on the knowledge base

By the way, you say I have to delete my caption contest, yet you don't seem to think about the amazing amount of people doing translations on their userpages. Also, you should think about Has Matt?'s page that includes homsar quotes that other people can edit. Seriously (Talk) 23:28, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

I can't realy think of many people who do translations. Even then, the translations themselves are direct quotes and the replies are occurring on the talk pages. The reason I had a problem with your activity is because not only were you inviting people to edit your user page, you were asking them to create new H*R-related content based on the toons, which is the very definition of fanstuff. — It's dot com 23:38, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
Ah. I realize that my above comment was a little bit too harsh; I apologize for that. I try to stay nice with users, since most already have a reason to hate my guts (including you). So, yeah. Seriously (Talk) 23:42, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
Er, okaaay.... — It's dot com 23:43, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
Well, DBK does, after the extremely insolent remark I made on his user page, And you have a reason because of Something I can't mention. Also, Firebird has an excuse because I was blocked by him for trolling, and Yeltensic has a reason (although he's not a user anymore) because I was one of the people who asked him to stop most. Seriously (Talk) 23:47, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
One of the coolest things in this wiki is that everybody generally treats each other with respect and with maturity. Most of the people I know here do their job (be it editing pages, commenting on behavior, or taking action nobody wants to have to take but that needs to be taken) and then move on if need be, and so we try not to harbor little things that may be divisive or in the long run inconsequential. --Stux 00:04, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] 18,000 views

Hey, you've got a cool userpage. I agree, Marzipan's answering machine is underrated. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 05:02, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, man. Welcome aboard! — It's dot com 05:03, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
With over 18,000 views, it has to be good. Thunderbird 14:25, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
18,000 views?? When did that happen?! — It's dot com 16:59, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
I'm not sure I trust those counters anyway... The one at the bottom of this talk page currently shows only about 800 views, but surely that can't be right. — It's dot com 17:44, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
I've been having a similar situation on my user page. For some extremely odd reason, it says I have 28,000 page views. Seriously, I'm not that popular. Has Matt? (talk) 19:09, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
You were talking to Dot com, not Seriously. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 21:51, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
Oh, Granola. That's one of the worst jokes I've heard all day. :P — It's dot com 21:55, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
Of course, I, being a retard, do not understand that joke a bit. Also, dot com, you might as well delete that thing on the bottom I wrote, cause you asked the smoking monkey to delort it. Seriously (Talk) 21:58, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
Well, you see, "Seriously" can mean both your username or "in a serious manner". Has Matt? meant that in reality he is not as popular as 28,000 page views would seem to indicate, but Granola took it to mean that he was addressing you directly. Hilarity ensued. — It's dot com 22:16, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
Or a total lack of hilarity, as it was a crappy joke. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 22:38, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
Oh good, I knew you weren't that popular :P Maybe with all the code fiddling you do, you somehow reversed the number of talk page views with the number of userpage views or something. I've gotta say this has shattered my confidence in those little counter things, before I would have trusted those things with my life. Thunderbird 06:24, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
And I jumped from 2500 to 6000 in less than 24 hours awhile ago. That can't be right, either. Heimstern Läufer 06:28, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
The number is so small because the counter was reset to zero when this page was moved back incorrectly from a vandal. It had to be deleted and recreated, and that's probably what caused the problem. And Heimstern, do you have your preferences set to hold page caches? If you do, that's probably what caused the view count to jump. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 06:30, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
Aw, man! You're probably right, HSRusername. That really bums me out. I would reset my counter, except that I have no idea what to set it to. By the way, as far as I know, I've never messed with anything that would affect those numbers. Maybe they've gone up dramatically because an outside bot is gathering data or something (like for Google). — It's dot com 06:34, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
At the very least, as of 06:57, 7 December 2005 (UTC), you had over 6,000 talk page views, and just under 6,000 userpage views. I think it's safe to give yourself at least a 10,000 talk page view head start, as long as you give your userpage a 10,000 view handicap. That should get you somewhat back on track. ;) Thunderbird 06:38, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
Well, I found an archive just before all the hubbub that put the count at 10,071. I added that to the 958 currently showing to get 11,029, and used that figure to reset my counter. — It's dot com 06:55, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Talk page rate

These days, I've been trying to make more main namespace contribs and less user talk page contribs. The question is, has my diet (sorta) done any good for me? Check my contribs. On a rate of 1 to 10, how much would you say I've improved? — Seriously (Talk) 04:40, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Er, maybe we should give it a little more time before making a 1 to 10 rating. I say that because in the last three days, you have made more user edits than and twice as many user talk edits as all your main, main talk, HRWiki, and HRWiki talk edits combined (not counting sandbox). — It's dot com 06:42, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
Gulp. Back to work on the random refreshings. :( — Seriously (Talk) 17:59, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
I just did like fifteen. Sweet. — Seriously (Talk) 19:11, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, you've been doin' a LOT of edits, Seriously. Bluebry 19:12, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
Um, sorry about those things on tyhe videlectrix games. You're gonna be doing that for a long time. :( — Seriously (Talk) 19:27, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
Nah, you're fine. I've always been bugged by the word "exist" on those pages. How can we say that the games don't exist? I can see a screenshot right next to them! :) — It's dot com 19:39, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, that's true. At least I added some good edits to my reh—zoom. — Seriously (Talk) 19:44, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Documentary

Thanks for that page move. As I saw the whole thing unfold on Recent changes, I thought "what the heck is he doing"? — Seriously (Talk) 02:54, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

No problem. Hey, do me a favor: Instead of pressing [edit] over on the right to start a new topic, please press the [ + ] (plus) button at the top of the page (in between the main edit button and the history button). (Or, at the very least, please clear the old subheading from the edit summary.) Thanks. — It's dot com 03:02, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

I always wondered what that button did. Cool, I'll try hard to remember to. — Seriously (Talk) 03:09, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] H*bad

I would like to request to have my user name changed from H*bad to something else, at the fanstuff wiki, how do I do that?--H*bad 03:56, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

If the name of our changing username page is any indication, I estimate it would be at HRFWiki:Changing username. — Lapper (talk) 13:28, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] The Clamburger

Could you please mark Clamburger as a bot on the fanstuff? It's really cluttering Recent Changes. - Super Sam 13:20, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Why are you asking me when Tom has already given you an answer on this one? If you want to appeal, you'll have to take it up with him. — It's dot com 16:03, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Thanks!

I just thought I'd thank you for unblocking me. Sorry about that joke, I guess I'm just way different than everyone else here. What I did was still kind of disruptive, though, sorry. Darth Katana X (discussionitem_icon.gif user.gif mail_icon.gif)

[edit] IP check

Can you please do me a favor? I need you to check if Crusaders IP is 69.160.0.227. Please answer as soon as you can.--H*bad 22:15, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Access to that information is restricted, and unfortunately it's above your paygrade. Sorry. — It's dot com 22:35, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
I need to know, because I believe that he trolled the Funny Stuff in which he is on. Come to the Funny Wiki and tell me there please?--H*bad 00:36, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Theme song

There's some sort of unwritten rule that I live my life by: Every awesome person, by default, needs a theme song. Yes, you heard me right, a theme song. Why don't you try a song already titled after you: Dot Com. (Just to note, we still need one for Abdi. ;)) - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)

[edit] Email

Hey Dot comster. Can you check this email I sent you real quick? Thanks. — Seriously (Talk) 00:53, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

I saw that. Why don't you ask a fanstuffer to send that for you. Better yet, use the fanstuff's email features to send it to him. By the way, what happened to pressing the [+] button at the top for new topics? — It's dot com 00:57, 9 April 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, forgot about that. I'll try to be better (though it doesn't really matter anymore, I'm just here for the email). I tried emailing it to him, but he doesn't have an email address in his preferences. I'll copy the sent email and send it to someone. Sorry for all the trouble. — Seriously (Talk) 01:00, 9 April 2006 (UTC)
Wait, I can't. Since I did it from the wiki and not from Gmail, I can't cut and paste from any source. Looks like you're stuck with the burden. Once again, sorry for all the trouble. — Seriously (Talk) 01:01, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Username Change

If at all possible, please get around to changing my username. I left two notes on the HRWiki:Changing username page, but I still haven't had my name changed after a few days. · · T2|Things 14:32, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

You left your first request for a username change at 00:11, 27 April 2006 (UTC), fourteen hours and twenty-one minutes before posting your note here. You left your second request for a username change at 12:37, 27 April 2006 (UTC), only twelve hours and sixteen minutes after your first request. It has not even been one day, let alone a "few days." Please be patient. -- Tom 21:38, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] IP address change

My Ip I think has changed. I need you to check my Ip address and tell me what it is. If I am right then my Ip address has changed for some reason.--H*bad 19:21, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

To check your IP, just log out. It will tell you your IP where your username usually is. If it doesn't show it there, then edit the sandbox and check the history. — It's dot com 19:25, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

Am I allowed to say what it is?--H*bad 19:29, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

Um, if you want to. Some people try to protect that kind of info. (It won't be news to me, though.) — It's dot com 19:33, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
Here is the difference, this is my now 68.184.181.214, and here is what it was, 66.169.190.116. What is up with that?-H*Bad
Those IPs are both used by the ISP in your area. Speaking of, are you a Rangers, Mavs, or Cowboys fan? — It's dot com 19:41, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
Mavs fan. I also love the rangers. Do you happen live in the Dallas/ fort worth area?--H*bad 19:43, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
No, but I do live in Texas. (I did live in Mesquite and work in Plano for a summer, though.) — It's dot com 19:51, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
Hey, maybe we will run into each other at like a mavs or rangers game. I'll hear your name and look over and see you. Wouldn't that be nice?--H*bad 19:59, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
That'd be cool. I'm planning on going to the one about a week from now (Sunday night). You can see what I look like (in a Rangers cap even) in the photo on my user page. — It's dot com 20:03, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
There is a major problem though, I kind of told my parents that I know everyone here from school, so I can't say hi to you.--H*bad 20:10, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
That's okay. Although I traditionally wear my Homestar running shirt to ballgames, so that other H*R fans can spot me. — It's dot com 20:18, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
Although, I could make up a story that would make it ok for me to be talking to you.--H*bad 20:21, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Archives

Sorry if my last post was worded rude, mainly because I didn't word it very well. Anyways the reason I bring it up, is because anytime I post something on your talk page it takes forever for it to bring up your talk page.--H*Bad 20:21, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

It's okay, but you should be aware that people generally already know when their talk page has gotten pretty long. Pestering them about it rarely does more than annoy them. If you look at the top of the page, you'll see that I've already archived once before. Maybe I will again someday. Who knows, maybe even soon. There are a lot of other projects I'm working on, however, that require more of my attention right now (like the long-overdue upgrade). — It's dot com 20:53, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Hi

I was just lookin around on the wiki this morning and decided that I'd leave a brief hello message for you.

Hi, It's Dot Com.
I haven't really talked with you too much, so I felt like leaving you a message. What's up with you in real life lately? Anything cool happening that you'd like to talk about? Any interesting stories or other stuff? Are there any Wiki projects that need serious cleaning up or any pages that need creating? If so, I'd be glad to help with them. I don't really have too much wiki time any mroe, but I have a chance to be on this morning for a little while. I'd be glad to assist with any ongoing projects that are in need of serious help. If you get a chance, please reply on my talk page.

P.S. Could I add you to my friends list? I'd like to recognize you on my userpage for your remarkable work on this wiki over the time you've been here. Thanks for your time.

Well, sure. You can't have too many friends. To answer your other questions: The Rangers are still doing well, and that makes me happy. I can't think of any projects off the top of my head, but I'm sure there's some good ideas over at HRWiki:The Stick. I also can't think of any pages that need to be created. I wish they would release the next toon so we can make a page for it. (By the way, I replied here instead of your talk page because it's generally better to keep discussion in one place.) Talk atcha later! — It's dot com 16:36, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
Alrighty then. ADD'D!!!!!--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 16:44, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Rangers

Hey just in case you didn't get my memo, I am going to a rangers game on wednesday. I know your most likely going to erase this, but just so you know.--H*Bad 04:37, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

That's cool. I am thinking about going on Tuesday for the Fourth and the fireworks, but I'll have to see. — It's dot com 00:11, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
I would figure thats when its going to be the most crowded.--H*Bad 18:17, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
And I just got back. They won! Back to back homeruns. It was cool. Hey were you there? Or were you there at the July 4th game?--H*Bad 03:27, 6 July 2006 (UTC)
No, I didn't get to go to that one. (That's too bad, 'cause I love patriotic-themed fireworks.) Glad your game was good, and hey, they're tied for first right now! — It's dot com 06:30, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Ni hao!

Hey, Dot com, just wanted to say hello from China! Hope all's going well for you. Things have been crazy in China (in an awesome way), but I can't imagine I'll get much time to tell all you guys until I return to the USA... anyway, just wanted to give you a long-distance greeting. Zaijian! Heimstern Läufer 14:47, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

China man that's gotta be fun! Some day I hope to visit China. Just won't be any time soon. I do plan to go to Kansas City Missouri for a few days this summer! Hi Dot com! :) --Stux 02:09, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
Hey juys! Looking forward to your return! (Although, Heimstern, it's kinda like you never left. What an increasingly small world we live in.) — It's dot com 00:11, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
I think I'm in a bit of an abnormal situation here, to be honest. I'm in about the nicest hotel in Shuangliu county and stuff like that. So in some ways, I have a lot of the conveniences of home. A lot of places in China aren't like that, or so I hear. But then again, China is growing like crazy in terms of technology and modernization. It seems like everyone here has a cell phone. Like, more oft than in the USA. I don't have time to say much more now, though. We'll talk more when I return. Heimstern Läufer 05:30, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Thank you!

I wouldn't have lasted a week. Even though yes I am not on as much anymore because of band and whatnot, but still.--H*Bad 18:33, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

No problem, just see that it doesn't happen again. If it does, I won't be able (which is to say, willing) to unblock the IP so quickly. — It's dot com 18:37, 4 September 2006 (UTC)
Yeah I was about to say, "wait your an admin!". I get it, don't worry he won't be getting on the wiki anymore. I locked the internet with a very special password, that even with your "great" detective like skills couldn't get. Unless of coarse you have 20 life times tucked away with you..... anyways, thanks again. And I do mean again. --H*Bad 18:43, 4 September 2006 (UTC)
I guess he won't be a problem for you guys anymore.--H*Bad 21:41, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Inactive on Forum

You're an admin here and on the forum, right? Well, I registered to the Forum a long time ago, and I've been inactive all this time cause I didn't know what it meant, and I deleted the confirmation email. Now that I finnaly know (thanks to Joshua on the Fanstuff), can you please do something about my inactive-ness on the Forum? I'd really like to be there, where it's really active on topics. Spyrox6

I went ahead and marked your account as active. Enjoy. — It's dot com 15:15, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Sorry

Note to self: "Keep your mouth closed more often Ilko." Sorry that I seem to be defeating myself (and the process to some extent) in the logo discussion. I keep telling myself to just sit back and be quiet and not keep reacting to things, but so far have been far too reactionary. Just wanted to appologize for being too. . .well too whatever you want to call it. - Ilko Skevüld's Teh C 00:42, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Well, I didn't know when I'd be able to switch it over, and I didn't figure there was any harm in getting a jump on things (unlike this thread, which has taken me sixteen months to reply to). — It's dot com 21:03, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] My name change

I don't mean to bug you... sorry if I am, no really sorry. Anyways, I think that it is time for my name to be changed. It's not like I am leaving the wiki... not pulling a rainer... seriously... or whoever else.

[edit] Tsk, tsk, Dot com...

Hey Dot com, just wanted to let you know that your welcome template is not XHTML 1.0 Transitional compliant. I found out while validating my own page (that was the only correct way for me to fix it). Oh BTW, you might want to consider re-archiving your talk page! ;) --Stux 15:26, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

I'll get right on that. — It's dot com 15:58, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

[edit] In the future...

Hey. In the future please don't edit my page even if it's something like that. Ohhhh, but thank you anyways. I've been wanting to ask you a question. Who do you like more, Mark Texaira or Hank Blalock (Yes it's a Rangers question). I'm a big baseball fan too. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Sam, fixing technical issues on a userpage (including removing deleted images) is permitted and, indeed, is the right thing to do. So please don't give DC grief over it. Thanks. Heimstern Läufer 22:58, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
Teixeira. Although somebody once gave me a Blalock jersey, and I think he's cool too. I wore the jersey to Yankee Stadium last year the night the Rangers beat the Yankees in the opening game of their series there. Oh, and, in the future, please read all of these (especially this part) before posting here again. Thanks. — It's dot com 02:50, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Sabotage?

Hey It's dot com. As you may know, my password got changed recently not by me. Even my Fanstuff account was switched. Is there some way of tracking what IP or username requests password changes? I know I should not assume malice, but... I think someone did this to me on purpose. Thanks, --TheYellowDart(t/c) 04:16, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Unfortunately, that information is not stored in the logs (and even if it were, server logs only last about a day). Sorry. The only way your password could be reset is if someone either knows your old password or if they have direct access to your email account. Hope that helps you narrow down who might have done it. — It's dot com 07:01, 15 December 2007 (UTC)
It's alright. Thanks though. I just hope nobody does that again... --TheYellowDart(t/c) 15:25, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Why no delete?

Why won't you delete my user and talk page? The reason I want them delete is because I don't want people looking at the history. --Trogga 21:25, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Preserving the history is the primary reason I don't want to delete your talk page. Why should the history be deleted? — It's dot com 21:30, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
I don't want people to view stuff like this the wrong way. --Trogga 01:08, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
So, are you going to do it? Sorry if I'm bothering you, it's just that you haven't responded in two days.--Trogga 18:48, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
No, I'm not planning on deleting them. I still don't see a compelling reason. — It's dot com 22:37, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
It's just that I had my user page at Wikipeda deleted. --Trogga 01:32, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
