[edit] Hall of fame edit summaries

here's one that's very funny when taken out of context: DeFender1031 21:53, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Nice one. Not quite HoF material, though ;-) Loafing 22:26, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
Holy gorsh! I need to be paying more attention to what I put in my edit summaries! Has Matt? (talk) 00:27, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
Nah matt man, it's all good. It's just when i saw it in RC all i saw was that and started cracking up. DeFender1031 01:53, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

What about this one? (→Merge - and I like reruns of Arrested Development on TV ... er, I mean... reply!)

Yes, I saw that. Maybe if I liked that show too ;-) Keep try. Loafing 02:47, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

here's one by Jay that I thought was cool. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 22:12, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

I must admit... I was kind of waiting for you to put me there. Ha! 21:32, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

That's cheating, then! ;-) I was kind of wondering if I should wait until you get an account, though :-p Loafing 21:35, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
Mac/H*R Irony: I typed in for the summary earlier "You won't believe this, the CHATPA says "compy386" this must be a sign from The Brothers Chaps. Oh God, this can't be good." and I told my computer to speak (not verbally, I used the key command I programmed in the system preferences) it with the TTS (Text-To-Speech Engine) it has nothing came out, and later fans were at full blast. Speech Synthesis Server (the name of the process, which acts as an application) was taking up 100% of the CPU, and my computer's temperature was over the limits (that I heard) that could start to destroy your computer. The temperature that could start it was 176ºF, and iStat Pro said CPU A (MacBook Intel Core 2 Duo) was at 184ºF! It was able to pop-up dashboard, so I could see the temperature. I had to do a force restart. All of this took about 3 minutes in all. And Now I'm back. Speech Synthesis Server, just made me go "What the?!" Is that CHATPA thing an actual easter egg in it? 22:04, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Are any of these worthy of going on your page: [1] [2] [3] BBG 16:27, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Wait. Isn't trying to be in the hall of fame defeat the whole purpose of Loafing having it? I mean, c'mon. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 19:59, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] YAY!

I'm finally on your Hall of Fame. It isn't exactly me, but... heck yes!! --TheYellowDart(t/c) 21:37, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Nope! You're absolutely right. That's what I get for editing at 7:44am running on little to no sleep. --Stux 15:03, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] That Loafing

That Loafing is a computer genius man. Flashfight

He sure is ;-) Loafing 02:47, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Hey Loafing...

Is it o.k. if I borrow the idea of the hall of fame, but instead use talk page quotes? --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 16:01, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Sure, no probalo ^_^ Loafing 21:41, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Thanks for the invite

In reference to the comment you left - Invitation accepted :) - Looking forward to working more on the subtitles project [Nebulon] 07:56, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

You're very welcome. And welcome to the wiki (again)! I'm glad you joined. And great sig! :-)  Loafing 08:07, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Name....?

Hey, it's me. I was wondering if I could possibly change my name on here. I know if I creat a second accound, it would be considered sockpuppetry. I decided to come to you, one of the many sysops on this wiki and ask if I could change my name. Please get back to me. -Cool Tapes.exe
PS: Post the reply on my talk page. Thanks!

[edit] Why?

Why do you keep deleting my welcome post on Kittyslasher's talk page? I'm just trying to help. Homestarmy Commando1

I can answer that. He is vandal and we don't welcome vandals. I welcomed a few vandals not even knowing that they were already vandals. Please see the block log or on the deletion log if you want to see if you welcome a vandal. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
Ah, I was just about to post on your talk page. I'm sorry, but that particular user is a vandal who has been blocked from editing forever. I do appreciate that you welcome new users, and I do know that it's confusing that some users should not actually be welcomed. I had the same problem when I started! Only very few users are vandals, and it's usually safe to welcome everybody. If you see that a new user has not been welcomed for quite a while (maybe an hour or longer), then you might want to check Special:Log/block to see if he or she has been blocked. Don't let this spoil your mood, it's no big deal! :-) Loafing 13:34, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks a LOT, guys. I had no idea that guy was a vandal. Homestarmy Commando1

[edit] Pfargtl pic.

Thanks for uploading a better one. I was trying to do five things at once on the toon's article and the screenshot was one too many, I think.— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 10:42, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Hey no worries. You actually beat me to the image by a few seconds. I was in the process of uploading a screenshot of the "DVD menu", but your idea was better ;-) Good jorb with the transcript(s)! Loafing 10:44, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. This one wasn't too hard. It's so short.— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 10:48, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] revert

I don't understand. My comment re: the VA Tech tragedy was sincere.BryanCTC 04:14, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I'm sure it was. It's just that you're already the second editor to mix up Georgia and Virginia. ;-) And apart from that, it's not quite article talk page appropriate, as the talk page is for discussing article content. Keep on tranglin'!  Loafing 04:16, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
At least you're not the only one Byanc! Homestar-Winner (talk) 20:28, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Subpages

Loafing, I've seen other people make subpages that I don't think fit the H*R Wiki and they never get deleted. Do you think many admins just never notice or that I'm wrong about the Wiki policy. (Also, I might not do TODs anymore. I can't think of many good ones.) Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:42, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

That is a very good point. There are many subpages that really shouldn't be there according to our policy, and I have been meaning to bring this up for a while now. It's just a lot of work, and so I've so far concentrated mainly on new subpages. And really, only policing subpages is no fun, so I'm mostly doing other things, as I guess most other users will do, too. Apart from that, I like Trey's response on your talk page, and his post here, which must have been inspired by your question. And hey, you might have a good idea for another TOD tomorrow or next week. Never say never ;-) Loafing 01:36, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] i has a deletion

Hey Loafing. I was wondering if you can delete my "i has a crayon" personal image on my userpage. Instead of that, I am doing a Nintendo challenge like Trey. (with permission) So, if you could do that for me, it would make me happy. ;-) Keep on tranglin, TheYellowDart(t/c) 02:42, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

I has a deletion! Loafing 02:43, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
Thanks man. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 02:45, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Just how did you delete my personal image, Sprinkles (Barfalamue).jpg? I don't see how. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 01:13, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

You don't see how because only sysops have access to the delete button. (Incidentally, this should probably have been a new section at the bottom of Loafing's talk, not part of one that's over a year old.) Heimstern Läufer 02:11, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] It's a new drill!

Oh, awesome!

Happy birthday! Here's a drill. Keep on doin' great stuff for the wiki and vanquishing that thesis! Trey56 23:56, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Threw it at Strong Sad, but it's still good
Yeah, Happy B-Day Loafing. I get to say Happy birthday to you all day. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 23:57, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
Note to self: Loafing doesn't suck. Happy birfday, Loafing! Keep on doing that sysop thing... that you do... Has Matt? (talk) 00:06, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Happy Birthday Loafing! Happy Birthday! Okay that wasn't very original. --Stux 00:45, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Happy Birthday Loafing! May you always keep helping me out with all the stuff I don't know! Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:49, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Awww, thanks a lot, you guys. Hmmm, a power drill and a cake... the plausibilities are endless! Loafing 03:37, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Happy birthday, man! I wish you that your New-Zealand gravity boots won't fail you and you won't fall from the earth for a whole year! :) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 04:06, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Happy Loafday. Have a time! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 09:05, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
It's my birthday in a few days! :) OpenSourceGreg 07:07, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Pumpkin Carve-nival

Did you think that was a legit idea to make the transcript more accurate? Please reply at Talk: Pumpkin Carve-nival#Strong Bad as Homestar. Sorry if this annoys you; I am not intending to. Bad Bad Guy 22:24, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

If you don't know I was referring to the quotation mark thing. Bad Bad Guy 22:29, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Did you just...

The n00bity of this question is intense, but did you just...block yourself? It's been a long time since I've seen a vandal blocked, but it DOES say that Loafing blocked "User:Loafing" with an expiry time of infinite...· · T2|Things 22:51, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I've been suspicious of that Loafing guy for quite a while. He's a shady fella. Or maybe I was distracted and clicked the wrong link. History will decide! ;-) Loafing 22:53, 27 May 2007 (UTC)
I'm gonna find some way to preserve that for posterity, maybe even prosperity.· · T2|Things 22:55, 27 May 2007 (UTC)
So then I grabbed the Blue Laser Loafing by his collar and said, "You betta block yourself!"--Bobo the King 05:48, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
He's not the first to hit the wrong button accidentally... (or intentionally...) and he won't be the last. --phlip TC 06:18, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] DELETED

I don't want this navbar for my user page anymore. Could you delort it? Homestar-Winner (talk) 10:53, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Sure. It's still used on your user page and your talk page, though! Are you sure you want me to delete it immediately? Also, a tip for the future: if you want one of your subpages to be deleted, put {{delete|No longer needed}} at the top, and it will soon be deleted by a sysop. So, just let me know if it's really OK to go ahead, and I'll delort it! Oh, and keep up the good work on the wiki! :-) Loafing 11:40, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
Done and done! Thanks Loafing! Homestar-Winner (talk) 11:59, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
No probalo! Loafing 19:03, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Png guy checks talk page

PNG GUY: I use an exe called PNGOUT[4] which was created by the Ken Silverman, creator of the Build engine used in Duke Nukem 3D, amongst other games. PNGOUT is excellent at optimizing PNGs if you use the right settings. Unfortunately, it doesn't check EVERY possible combination of settings for the smallest file size. That part I have to do myself. Well, there's your answer. Png guy 03:05, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply, that's really a cool tool. I've just tried it with PNGGauntlet, which tries out a set of combinations to find the best one. Oh, and usually, you should just reply on your talk page. Normally, I;d move this discussion back to your page now, but the "checks talk page" idea is so cool, i'm'a gonna go ahead and not touch it ;-) Loafing 04:08, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Welcoming

Uhh... sorry for constantly questioning you sysops... but why didn't this guy's talk page have the automated welcoming tips and you welcomed him instead? Homestar-Winner (talk) 11:39, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

He/she joined in March, nearly two months before we started doing the automated tips. So someone from the welcoming committee must have overlooked him. Loafing 11:44, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] One heck of a guy

[edit] Well okay then

My plan was to make an account that you or any other sysop could use to block people so people couldn't flame ypu whwn you blocked themZorc 00:30, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Did what ya said on my talk page Hopefully you can't read french cause BAISE!Zorc 00:34, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
Oh come on respond already!

[edit] Talk pic

How do you get a pic for your Talk button thing? I guess I never really learned when everybody started doing it on here. Yours is a loaf of bread. That's what I'm talking about. Sanjuro 16:57, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Thanks

Thank you for fixing my user boxes and responding to my comment onTalk:Inkhole InterviewRandomnerd10 19:32, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

[edit] With lack of a better title...

Since you are always voting delete on my articles.(The bad ones, at least.) I figured you would know what a necessary or unnecessary one would be. Anyways, should I make Squinting on account of Strong Bad doing so to read long or unclear words. Super!SantanaDuper!

I'm gunna go ahead and give my two cents. Squinting is a natural function of the human body when reading long or unclear words, therefore, I don't think it merits a page. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 22:11, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
SantanaHomerunner, I do appreciate your eagerness to contribute to the wiki. However, you often create new articles too quickly. Next time, before you create the article, check if this is already covered elsewhere (as for example with Basketballs), ask yourself if this would actually make for an interesting article (Squinting is for example a very normal thing to do, so it's not very notable). Also, make sure you go through the points listed in our inclusion guidelines to see if that article would have a chance. You've created 2 decent articles, which is much more than most new users can say, so you really don't need to stress. However, 15 (!) of your articles have turned out deleted, redirected or will soon be. You need to make sure that you'll be more productive, as it is a lot of work for everybody to discuss those articles. Keep an tranglin'! Loafing 23:57, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

[edit] user gift.From a friend.

I made a userbox for you.Hope you enjoy it!

[edit] Vandalism?

What do you think of this? I started wondering after DeFender1031's edit summary when he reverted it. Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:53, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

I didn't know what to make of it either, hence the question rather than a statement. — Defender1031*Talk 00:55, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
So far, the anonny has had decent contribs. It might have been a mistake or a glitch. Not sure. We'll see what happens. Loafing 00:57, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
Looks like they ran it through an online translation site. Shwoo 02:26, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
Shwoo, i immediately thought of something like babelfish, here i mentioned a "literary scrambling script". — Defender1031*Talk 02:27, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Also about Vandalism

What has done wrong? I saw you gave him a block warning a couple days ago. Homestar-Winner (talk) 02:35, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Go to that block warning link, hit History, and read the summary. He explains why. (And laugh at Loafing's screwup of posting it on the user page accidentally.) Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:42, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
yes, we all laughed. — Defender1031*Talk 02:43, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
So long as we all see the value in a good edit summary: you can laugh at it later. No, wait. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:51, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
Ha-Ha! But I still don't get what edit the annony made that was vandalism. Could Simone please give me a link to the edit he made that was vandalism? Homestar-Winner (talk) 02:55, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
It was not vandalism, it was, as noted, trolling. That is, the posting in a thread solely for attention. Read the thread cited to see what we're talking about. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:59, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Symbols?

I was thinking about creating a page, when I thought, before I get stuffed, (Get it?) I should ask you because you seem to really understand the Wiki. Should I make Symbols? It would tell about different symbols used in the Homestar Runner universe. Kind of like Fonts. It could also tell about when something like ♥ replaced "love" or something like that. Is there already a page that relates? Is it unecessary?--Super!SantanaDuper! 23:11, 7 August 2007 (UTC) P.S. Your my new page consultant.

I gotta-nother: a- on account of a-the cheat or that one at the end of monument. Or mumbling.--Super!SantanaDuper! 19:21, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
Lol, thanks for choosing me as your page consultant. I charge $5000 per suggestion. Anyway, I strongly advise you to overthink these ideas. While these are certainly real occurrances, you need to think if anybody would actually be interested in the articles. mumbling for example is neither funny nor out of the ordinary. I'm also not so sure about your other suggestions. a- is for exmple something that really only Strong Bad does, so a whole article on it might be too much. You know, you don't need to create heaps of new pages if you want to contribute to the wiki. Gnome work is very much appreciated, too :-) Loafing 23:05, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
I will take that into consideration, but I want to inform you that I went ahead and made Stew. I was very confident in my idea. But I have another one: Mining.--Super!SantanaDuper! 23:11, 8 August 2007 (UTC) P.S. What about Symbols from paragragh #1 of this conversation.
One more. Spring Break?--Super!SantanaDuper! 23:35, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm not really convinced by any of these. Symbols would not really list anything H*R specific, would it? You always have to ask yourself if someone would actually want to read such an article. Not sure that mining is something that happens so often at, and there has never been any actual spring break. You should also definitely check out HRWiki:Spoons and it's talk page. Now, as per our agreement, you owe me $30.000 if I counted correctly. But seriously, I might not be the best guy to ask about those articles. I'm not too sure myself if an article is worth creating. Contrary to popular belief, I'm not all-knowing. Loafing 07:22, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] the egg award

2nd place

u won it for showing me that the acount was not deleted

it hatched

Cool, thanks :-) Loafing 01:09, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Did you just call me insulted?

I didn't really think that... No problem! Bluebry 01:03, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Haha, just wanted to make sure you didn't get that the wrong way :-) Loafing 01:09, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Yay!

You won Person of the Day! I choose you becoase: You clear out the delete log, cool sysop. Numa Numa!! (T*C)

Thanks, I guess... Loafing 19:35, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
That was a long time ago, so I need to make you one agian. You win again. Numa Numa!! (T*C)

[edit] Gnomez

Hey Loafing. I was scrolling through the block log, and I found that you blocked Gnomez. I was wondering why. It said He/she knew old account Eguy. Does that mean he was originally Eguy. A little confused, User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 13:06, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

For some reason, Eguy thought his account had been deactivated and created the Gnomez account to edit the wiki. When he found out that his old account still worked, he abandoned the Gnomez account and used his Eguy account again. That's all. He didn't vandalize or anything. Loafing 19:32, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Okay, thanks Loafing. I was a bit confused. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 19:42, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Wow...

You revert EVERYTHING! For that, I'll make a song about you!

L is for Le Reverter

O is for Oh, I dunno!

A is for Artistic

F is for Fun

I is for interactive

N is for Nothing.

G is for Gnomez banner! (Yeah, you banned Gnomez) ~~

Erm, thanks, Mr. Numa. Loafing 08:26, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Somebody deserves this...

Congrats! Keep on subtitling!

For all your hard work with the subtitles, you deserve to be the first recipient of THE GOLDEN SUB. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 21:10, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Awesomeness! :-D Thanks, bro. I hope my teeth will cope with the gold ;-) Loafing 21:12, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Correct Confrontation?

I confronted this guy on his talk page and I just want to know if I did it appropriatly. (...or if I mispelled anything...) here. Mine is the one with this signature: Super!SantanaDuper! 22:20, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Well, as the edit in question took place on 16 August, over a month ago, it was probably unnecessary. Heimstern Läufer 22:35, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Instructions translation

Hey, Loafs. After the localized quick dip pages are (hopefully some day) done, do you think that it would be possible/necessary to also translate the text on the local viewer to the language of the subtitles currently viewed? Might seem a bit.. freakish, I guess, but I'm quite passionate about people needing and using my subtitles really understanding everything they should read. Thanks! --Sysrq868 11:26, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Ced tagged his user page and talk page for deletion

Are you going to delete his things, or do you want him to stay? I think he's a little upset because you reverted his edits. --Bill Hart from North Carolina 14:07, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Hmmm, what gives you that impression? That was no big deal, was it? Definitely nothing even close to a reason for quitting. Did he tell you that he was upset by that? Loafing 21:27, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
I asked him why he was leaving, to which he responded, "It appears I'm not a very productive user." --Bill Hart from North Carolina 21:17, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I saw that. I assumed that he said that because he thinks he's not a very productive user, not because I reverted an edit. I meant if he told you in person. Loafing 21:25, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

{in Strong Mad's voice} NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! kind of coolBill Hart from North Carolina 21:27, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Hurr

Hey Loafing, Mike here. Just dropping you a line to say Hi and I Found You on HRWiki. I tried to leave you a more subtle hello but someone reverted it :P -- 04:27, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Haha, yes, it did look very much like random vandalism. Especially with that edit summary ;-) Anyway, thanks for stopping by! Might see you on Friday. Loafing 04:48, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Pre-subtitles

Thanks, I think I copy/pasted from the page itself, not its Edit text. Hey, everyone's entitled to a moment of stupidity now and then. --Jay (Talk) 03:54, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Meh, that's hardly stupidity! You can do better (stupider) than that, I'm sure ;-) And you need to be on IRC more often... or at all! Loafing 04:54, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
I don't even have all the plug-ins to do so any more; I switched computers a while ago and it didn't cross my mind recently. Parhaps after subtitling. --Jay (Talk) 04:59, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Other Little Girl identity?

I think I found some YouTube videos of Other Little Girl (quite randomly, I might add) - here and a couple of others. It seems that her name is Thea. Do you think it's her? --Terlet Brush 05:31, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] IRC

Why you never talk to me no more? :( We miss you! — Defender1031*Talk 00:30, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

I'm a few months behind with my PhD, so I'm cutting back on IRC and the wiki. I just can't afford it at the moment, sorry! I'll be back eventually. Loafing 05:00, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Local viewer

Whether you may know it or not, there is a small bug in the local viewer. I asked Phlip over IRC, and he said that your XML parser spits out <br></br> instead of just <br> in the HTML generated from the subtitles data. Could you fix this, or take this to someone who could fix it? Thanks! --Sysrq868 11:27, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Whoops, thanks for pointing that out. It's dot com and I fixed it :-) Loafing 01:36, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] HEY! WHAZZUP?

Yo, I made an edit to a page, you reverted it (which is fine, this is why we have Wiki's) but, you posted your reason as "rv. complete stretch". If you could please tell me what that means, I would very much appreciate it. Thanks. — (Talk | contribs) 23:17, 22 January 2008 (left unsigned)

Cool, cool! Here's what it means: "rv" means "revert". That's so that people can immediately see the nature of my edit. "Stretch" means that the connection between the quotes from the toon and the movie was exaggerated. The Duke Nukem quote is (as far as I know) not unique to the game, and even if it was, it's not obvious that Homestar's quote was actually referring to it. It's something that happens all the time, don't let this discourage you! Sometimes, my edits get reverted, I take a step back and think "Oh yeah... it's not that obvious..." ;-) Keep on tranglin'! Loafing 00:24, 23 January 2008 (UTC)
Oh! I thought "Complete Stretch" meant that I stretched out the section of the article to an unacceptable length! Thanks.

[edit] Miketigershark

Are we going to block Miketigershark? Or do you have to wait a certain amount of times? Or does he just not know what he's doing? TheThin 23:02, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

I don't know why he lasted as long as he did. I guess because his edits were only mildly vandalish or because he had a few real edits mixed in? Whatever the case, he was warned not to vandalize and he's now blocked. --Jay (Talk) 23:08, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
I got distracted after reverting, and then was away form my compy for quite a while. I guess it's all over, now. Loafing 01:24, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] As much as I'd like to go on the forum...

I'd probably remove myself from editing anything here in the future if I did. Plus, non-expiring sessions aren't always non-expiring. 12:07, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

[edit] About your revert on TGS 8

I said the trolls' language was a take-off on Klingon, and you said it was too big of an assumption to make. It seemed to be a pretty clear reference to me, even though it may take a few steps to perceive it as such. To me, So and So's death by twelve-sided die makes sense if you see the trolls as nerds in costume, which would also explain why they want So and So's autograph (because of her new Goth look). The fact that they are nerds thus makes it possible that at least one would know how to speak Klingon. In either case, it does bear some resemblence to Klingon, whether coincidental or intentional, so maybe I could have made my edit a weaker yet more acceptable statement by simply saying so. 19:55, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

As you said, it takes a few steps to perceive it as a reference to Klingon. Seeing the trolls as nerds in costume is not something that most editors would agree with, I believe. Trolls and Klingons also don't match, as trolls are fantasy and Klingons are science fiction. It's a rather weak link, and not quite enough to be listed on an article, I'm afraid. Loafing 23:05, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Hey Look, It's Loafing

  • Hey. I just noticed that I haven't really seen you or talked to you (well, here at the Wiki) for a long time. How are you? --TheYellowDart(t/c) 02:14, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
Are you there, buddy? --TheYellowDart(t/c) 22:35, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
No, I'm not! My PhD thesis is due in 30 hours, so I'm not really supposed to be online at all :-p I'll get back atcha in a few days time :-) Loafing 22:41, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Gotcha. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 04:16, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

...Loafing? Are you sleeping again? That is your last warning. One more time and it's a lunch detention. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 20:20, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Mmmmmh, detention with lunch? Yum. Life is awesome again! I'm no longer a student, and I finally have time to catch up with all my friends. And the wiki. How's things with you? Handing out many detentions these days? Loafing 22:39, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Me? Oh, just enjoying the bits of summer freedom. And yes, a lot of people get detentions. I've been missing you on the IRC. You should make the big comeback!! --TheYellowDart(t/c) 01:29, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

[edit] PhD'D!

Loafing (right) with his girlfriend. (Sorry man, I had to.) — Defender1031*Talk 01:33, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Wait, did I just hear a "I'm no longer a student?" CONGRATS ON THE PhD, DR. LOAFING.
Yay Loafing! You suck a lot less now! u can haz cheesburger--TheYellowDart(t/c) 01:29, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Loafing- grats on the Phd (Piled Higher and Deeper) in Computer Science... if I went back to School i'd make the attempt myself. If you use that Phd for "EVIL" cause you would have a "Player Hater Degree". --Wi2K Talk-Favorites-173 14:51, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Right, I should probably put this right. I'm not a PhD yet! I submitted my thesis, but I still have to pass my thesis defense. So keep your pants on! You can congratulate me all over again in a few months ;-) But thanks anyway :-) And Deffy, that's not what my girlfriend looks like! She looks like this, only with more pixels. Or was it less? Loafing 19:45, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] UK English or US English?

Which are you more used to? I highly recommend using American English in your edits. --The 386 My talk 01:52, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure Loafing knows which form to use on this wiki. Heimstern Läufer 09:40, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
Umm, thanks for your recommendation, 386. I say, old chap, did you have any particular edit in mind? Loafing 18:10, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] I wasn't counting Jor-dan.

When I counted up the ten previous Dans, I did not count Jor-dan. That would make it eleven. Admittedly, though, I did count the obscure almost-email in 2 emails since that was on the list. --Jay (Talk) 18:50, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Ah, OK. Turns out I got it completely wrong, then :-p Loafing 19:46, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] A question about edit summaries

Sup Loafing:

Since you are a system operator on the Wiki, I felt comfortable asking you, when you fill the summary box during an edit, how do you make an arrow with a link to the section of the page you edited? Thanks! —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 02:29, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

This happens automatically when you hit [edit] next to the exact section you want to edit. You can also force a section link into your edit summary by adding /* Your Text Here */ in your edit summary (though it won't link to anywhere unless there's a section called that exact thing on the page). --DorianGray 02:34, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
The edit box starts with something like "/* words */". if you don't delete the slashes and stars, and just type your summary after that, it'll do it for you. — Defender1031*Talk 02:35, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
I didn't have to make a new section as Loafing already had an archive thing. But anyway, thanks so much DorianGray and DeFender1031. This summary thing is coming in handy. Like once Paul Revere said, "you learn something new everyday." I believe thats a life's thought. Bcause it's true. That your bleeding at that moment, you have a basement, and someone smells like Strong Bad. Although that one is pretty rare. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 03:44, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Is there...

anything specific I can do to help? Elementio 19:43, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Sure there is! :-) Have a look at Category:Stubs. This is a list of all articles that need more info. Loafing 20:34, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Flash Decompiler... HELP!!!!!!!!!

Do you know how to work one? Espemon333 00:02, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Try Flash Decompiler Trillix. It's easy to use. Every bit of Flash is sorted by Sound, Object, Sprite, etc. Even the hidden or unused stuff. Just click a group and there's all the objects! Click anything in the folder to see it. If there's any "behind-the-black" items, then use the preview window where you can see past the border. This is just a suggestion. I'd recommend it. That'sBupkis! 01:05, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

[edit] "Let the experts create subtitles"

Sup there! Long time... How are you doing? Still on that thesis? ;) I didn't want to hijack That'sBupkis' talk page, but I wanted to reply to your comment there. There is an interesting policy page in a wiki I frequent: Sloppy is fine. If we leave subtitling to the experts, then we'll have fewer subtitles. The way I see it, if a native speaker watch a toon that have mistakes in the subtitles, then he'll say "Hey! This is wrong! I'll just fix this really quick. Now it's fine." and now the wiki and everyone else have a true correct subtitle. But if there are no subtitles to begin with, the native speaker will say "Hmmm... I don't have the time to make the full subtitles now. I'll leave it to someone else" and nobody gains anything. Now, it's the responsibility of the original editor to put the right cleanup, or native speaker needed, in the first place, let's not forget that. So anyway, I just wanted to express my views here. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 13:05, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Hey, really long time! No, thesis time is over and you know it :-p Yeah, I've had a re-think of my opinion on subtitles. I always thought they should be as perfect as possible because when they're viewed, you can't see the fixtranslation tag. I was afraid that first-time subtitle viewers might be put off by bad quality. Well, that's what I thought when we started with the project and I never thought twice about it. But now it seems that people actually register with the wiki to fix subtitles. I think I saw that at least once. And really, whoever watches our subtitles will probably know it's from a wiki anyway. It seems I was a little over-protective which is something that doesn't really fit in with the spirit of this wiki. Ah well, it only took me a few years to change my mind. That's fast enough, right? ;-) Loafing 09:11, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Ha, nice. Ironically, I took Kawaiinot out of my daily cartoon bookmarks last weeks ;-) It's just not as good anymore. What are you up to these days? Are you a professional comic artist now? ;-) Loafing 08:42, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
We miss you guys swinging by IRC from time to time... don't be strangers! ;) And do let us know how you are doing! --Stux 23:29, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
Well, I'm still studying Visual Communications. I stayed back a year, but no biggy. It's summer vacation here, so school doesn't start again for a few months, and then I'll be in my 3rd year. I stopped working at Toys R Us and got a new jorb at a stupid gift shop. Oh! Forgot to tell ya! I have a new girlfriend now :) We've been together a year now. I tried getting her into Homestar, but it's hard when there's no new updates to look for... I'm thinking about making a nostalgic post about the site on my blog, Ganzakh. It's weird being nostalgic for something that ended a year ago, but when I think about it, I got SBEmails in 2003, 8 years ago! So it's weird like that. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 07:55, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
I found your blog but it's all covered in weird symbols ;-) Yay for having a girlfriend! We left Christchurch just before all those earthquakes started. We now have a little house in the suburbs and two cats. The only thing we need is a picket fence and we're saving up for that ;-) I can get quite nostalgic about Homestar Runner too. Although I did stop being active a few years back now so I'm allowed. A friend discovered my sbemail DVDs on the shelf a few weeks back and borrowed them from me. And there's a guy at work who uses Trogdor as his avatar. So it's still alive! Stux: I came by the channel but you were away. By the time I find time to log on it's so late that most Americans have gone to bed. Loafing 06:29, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
