[edit] Block of

If you look at how he vandalized It's dot com's userpage, he was apparently Dr. Who?. Dr. Who? has since repented, and he currently edits as User:Taco Salad of My Dreams. Thus, I don't think it's that necessary to block him. — Seriously (Talk) 17:48, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Note how the IP address is in the AOL IP range Also note how any vandal has his or her impersonators. Please don't concern yourself with blocking. — Lapper (talk) 17:57, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] iMac

Do you have an iMac? --Dacheatbot · Communicate 02:35, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

I have a 1.25 Ghz iMac G5 in my basement, as well as my personal 800 Mhz iBook G4. They both run Mac OS 10.4.6. — Lapper (talk) 02:42, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
I thought you might have a Mac from the image on your userpage. (Power to the Tiger!) --Dacheatbot · Communicate 03:10, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
Actually, I don't have an iSight. I went to a retail store and used the camera there. — Lapper (talk) 03:13, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Drofic

Thanks man, for blocking Droifc. (Jody told me about it on IMDB). With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 16:24, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

No problem, Granola. If I may, I'd like to post the email he sent me regarding your block, my reply, and his subsequent reply:
why u block me?? and i thankd u for wlecoming me but u removd it why u remove it??? if u knew yeltesnic youd hate him 2!!
Personal attacks are not tolerated on this wiki. Additionally, yes, I do know Yeltensic, if not personally. I blocked you temporarily because attacks are not to be made under any circumstances. Feel free to contribute as a user when your block has subsided.
but he n his frinds on imdb are al rlly mean!!! he stole my old acount their by loging in as me after i said da pasword on my profil and he changed it so now i haveto be calld the_REAL_droifc with a new accont! i tryed to start a thred on imdb about him and how mean he is and how he sucks but da admins their delted it so i folowed him to hrwiki to do it on that site! but ok i guess im not supossed 2 do that?

but ive stoped expectng anyting 2 be done hes 2 popular on imdb...well i guess not meny hav heard of him but at lest da ones who know him...but i guess its probly da same on hrwiki isnt it! oh well
We're all here to stop attacks in the future. — Lapper (talk) 17:49, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, Droifc popped up a while back to defend the annoying author of a terrible fanfic that was getting really bad reviews, and who was being made fun of by some of us IMDBers for replying to all reviews (even constructive criticism) with "ur all prepz i hat u u suk!!" We suspected Droifc was either the author or one of her friends, but now we think Droifc is probably one of the reviewers under a different identity, because it's unlikely that this Droifc could be for real (although it would be funny), and s/he's right, s/he DID announce his/her password, so several people (such as me) helped ourselves to the account. Now Droifc is on an obsessive vendetta against me, and keeps starting threads about how much I suck, that keep getting deleted by the IMDB admins. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 17:08, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
I really don't think it was very nice of you to assume Jody Droif's (aka Drofic's) account, even if he or she posted the password. Although the vendetta is indeed petty, it is not without base. Do not commit acts of unfriendliness to others – on or off the Internet. — Lapper (talk) 18:28, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
Droifc started this vendetta before that; the password incident just made Droifc more obsessed with it. I don't think it was very nice either, but Droifc was already starting anti-me threads everywhere; I would never have done that if some random person had accidentally blurted it out, rather than an enemy saying something like "i changd mah pasword 2 'ihateyelt' cuz u suk yletnesic!" (I also returned the account shortly, by e-mailing the new password, but Droifc changed it back to the old one, so someone else stole the account and still has it). With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 18:40, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
What, may I ask, started this vendetta? — Lapper (talk) 18:43, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
Droifc hated everyone for disliking the terrible fanfic I mentioned, but me especially because I started Dandypedia. (admittedly that was originally a vendetta of sorts, but I started the site for fun). Now Droifc has either revealed him/herself to be, or is pretending to be, a right-wing religious extremist and is making lists of everyone on the boards who will go to hell for reading Harry Potter and His Dark Materials. (I suspect that this is all fake, and is automatic opposition to me, after studying my Myspace, Wikipedia userpage etc for things to disagree with me on). With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 18:57, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
Well, the best we can do for now is remove his future hate-material. And, not to take sides, but that is indeed a poorly written story. "Special fangz [to] ... bloodytearz666 4 helpin me wif da ... spelling...". That's some nice spelling. — Lapper (talk) 19:05, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
I don't think he'll be back; he found out that HRWiki admins are quicker to the draw than IMDB admins at deleting his hate-material. With crap, Yeltensic (T C) 19:09, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] phpBB

I don't think I have ever seen such a throughly elaborate and awesome format for a Talk Page. That is truly amazing. With your knowledge of wikicode, you could beautify formatting like nobody else. Fabulous job. — Seriously (Talk) 21:32, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Why thank you, Seriously. Your generous compliments flatter me. — Lapper (talk) 01:13, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
I agree with Seriously, Your talk page is intuitive and amazing when it comes to creativity and complicated wikicode and is something that I could have never thought of or performed. --Dacheatbot · Communicate 01:47, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
Thank you, Dacheatbot. You're very kind. — Lapper (talk) 02:23, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I think the main reason it looks so awexome is because it looks like the aforementioned phpBB. It's very innovative. — Seriously (Talk) 11:05, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Looks like a lot of work. Good job. Homestramy20|Talk 19:11, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Wikiholic test

Hmm, I got a bit over 1000 on that test too (replacing "Wikipedia" with "HRWiki", "Jimbo Wales" with "Joey Day, etc)... about 1015 or something, I can't remember the exact number... This is probably not a good sign. --phlip TC 15:47, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Well, it may be an addiction, but the skills pay the bills... or at least help add significant content to the site daily. — Lapper (talk) 16:52, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
Wait, you're getting paid for this? I had to pay them to let me become a syso... err... by which I mean that none of the admins, least of all Dot com, can be proven to have accepted massive bribes into their off-shore bank accounts. For real. --phlip TC 16:56, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
Well, I guess that indirectly makes me your boss, Phlip. You bribe them, they bribe me. I mean... bribe? What... bribe? — Lapper (talk) 17:01, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
Caught ya! I'ma go seel this to some celebrity newspaper or gossip column...or something...But yeah, where can I take this quiz, if possible? I'm on the wiki way too much to neglect it. — Seriously (Talk) 00:09, 21 May 2006 (UTC)
It's linked to from my userpage. — Lapper (talk) 02:21, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] MediaWiki fixation

I'm in the process of setting up my own wiki. I'm interested in how the Introduction page works. A few days ago, you wrote this on that page: "There is a MediaWiki message for this page, allowing people to edit the page as blank, even though the code appears at the top. — Lapper (talk) 12:27, 15 May 2006 (UTC)." Could you please tell me where to go learn how to do this? I've looked through the MediaWiki documentation, but to no avail. It explains how to create system messages (which I already knew how to do), but not how to attach a new message to a particular page. 03:44, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

That's one of our customizations to the software. For more information, email -- Tom 04:05, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks. By the way, I'm not sure who changed my name to "Jeremy.Visser;" I'm actually an unregistered user just visiting various Wikis for ideas. 14:47, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Pyjamas

Hi there, Lapper, I'm a bit curious as to why you deleted DorianGray's redirect Homestar Runner in pyjamas. Since this is, if I'm not mistaken, the correct British spelling, it seems logical to me that we'd have a redirect there for our British (and other non-American) users. Just wanting to make sure we do this right... — Heimstern Läufer 05:01, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Considering the page Homestar Runner in pajamas is no longer existent, I didn't believe that a British-spelling redirect to that page was necessary. You can recreate it if you deem it necessary. — Lapper (talk) 05:08, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Happy 16th birthday

Hey there, just wanted to give you a few-hours-late birthday greeting. May you never have to parallel park. :-) Heimstern Läufer 17:13, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks a bunch, Heimi. May I never get the black lung. — Lapper (talk) 20:17, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Boy am I late... Happy TB.--H*Bad 21:36, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

No problem, HBad. Thanks a lot. — Lapper (talk) 12:19, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Happy birthday, man! Mazal tov! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 09:21, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, El. — Lapper (talk) 12:19, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Template fixing

Hi it's me, the one who asked for help on those templates. ;) you linked me to your contact section, I went on AIM at about 21:30 UTC to see if you were on but I am pretty sure you meant dropping a line here in your talk page. So I guess you aren't on now, but I'm hoping you'll see this reply and can help set the template so I'll have something for my ugly main page. :P I think I'll be on 3:30 hours from this edit, I really can't pin-point an exact time. :[ 22:08, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

When I said "drop me a line", I wasn't referring to any specific way in particular; whatever was most convenient for you. Sure, AIM might have worked out nicer, and I was indeed online at 21:30, but it's all right. Unfortunately, since it's now about an hour and fifteen minutes past 21:00, I've started up a small project. I'll let you know when I'm free again. — Lapper (talk) 22:16, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Previous mistakes

Thanks you for telling me my mistakes in the past.Thanks to that I probably won't make many more in the future. Austio talk 01:01, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

It's no problem. I'm glad to see you're willing to become a solid user. — Lapper (talk) 02:03, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

[edit] HRWiki path

dear lapper, thank you for the welcoming mail mail i cant wait to talk to people like you on the path of a hrwiki member! TIK 05:04, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

You're very welcome, TIK. I hope to see you contribute often here. — Lapper (talk) 15:35, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Transcription of unnatural

How could you have nabbed it? I got in first! Okay, I'm a bit annoyed. Shwoo 02:02, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

I'm afraid the way that it works around here is whomever places the {{inprogress}} template down first as effectively "called" the transcript. As I did that before anyone else managed to, I am currently transcribing the email. You might note from my userpage that I haven't transcribed any new toons for about 6 months now, and I duely note that this should not be robbing anyone of his or her "turn". I'm sorry to say it, but better luck next time, Shwoo. — Lapper (talk) 02:05, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
I've never done one. And I've seen lots of pages where people who didn't start the page did the transcript. And sorry for being rude. I was upset. Shwoo 02:08, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
It's no problem at all. — Lapper (talk) 02:12, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

I never seem to be on when 'toon transcribing is avaliable (sic) to do, and I can't figure out any other ways to contribute to this Wiki. Can you give me any tips? Shadow Scythe of Strongbadia?! 02:19, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Toon transcribing is just one of many ways to help the wiki out. Why, not two hours ago Shwoo and I tackled a list of over 300 subtitle pages that needed template values removed. The best policy is to grab a hold of any opportunity you see for a project (or any edit for that matter). — Lapper (talk) 02:22, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
How can I find out about projects? --Shadow Scythe 02:32, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
Check out HRWiki:Projects. — Lapper (talk) 02:33, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
OKATE- {cough} Okay. I'll cram-a-lam that page into my watchlist. --Shadow Scythe 02:42, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Hey, I just want to drop in and say you did an excellent job on the transcript. There were like, no errors in it. Good jorb! TheYellowDart(t/c) 12:51, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Thank you. — Lapper (talk) 20:54, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

[edit] First base

I was thinking about making a page about references to "first base". Would this be a good idea? Drippingyellowmadness CoolS.png talk 17:40, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

That page is already located at scenic Making Out. Additionally, I'm not the one who approves pages; that's the community's job. — Lapper (talk) 17:47, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

[edit] #hrwiki-rc

Why did you undo my edit? TheThin 13:34, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

I belive I provided a sufficient summary. — Lapper (talk) 21:11, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
Still, there is a box for hrwiki-RC, so we'd might as well include them all. — It's dot com 21:49, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
Though we can't call it a discussion channel. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:07, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
I didn't. — It's dot com 22:22, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Thank you, Homestar-winner. — Lapper (talk) 17:02, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Getting a little tired of British English

I don't think you should use british english in your text. I have some reasons to complain about it on this wiki. --The 386 My talk 18:18, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

And what text would that be, exactly? — Lapper (talk) 18:25, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Lack of request for speedy deletion

Um, Lapper, I don't remember putting a {{delete}} template on [[Image:MichaelXX2sig.jpg]]. I don't remember if I ever did. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:01, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

You did on 26 October. Loafing 20:58, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
Sorry. I uploaded a new one. I forgot. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:01, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Request to delete Total

Lapper, if you can find my statement consent (if applicable), there is a page that I think it should be pending deletion due to *shudder* commonplace material. You get the idea. So, will you at least try to delete the page with acknowledgement from administrators/sysops? P.S.: The page I was describing is Total. -Ümläut76 (The C Zone · Talk here!) 20:26, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

That page describes a commonplace word being used in decidedly non-commonplace ways. It should not be deleted. — It's dot com 03:37, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
{mutters}: He thinks I'm the one who should not delete that page... Oh, sorry. I am actually muttering to myself about the pending deletion. Well, I agree. I'll let the page still exist. -Ümläut76 (The C Zone · Talk here!) 22:36, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
