[edit] Bloom County

Just wanted to give some kudos to the other user on here with a comic-strip based username. Bloom County is a wonderful comic. —Guard Duck talk 20:37, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Hey thanks, I got caught reading one of the books on a trip and the name just kinda stuck. You're the first person to get the reference though! (Besides those I have told) - Opus the Penguin 20:40, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Image.

OK, does anyone know why I can't use the personal image I just uploaded for my bottom ten section? I substitute the image in the code It's Dot Com gave me, but it just shows up as white. Any suggestions? - Opus the Penguin 03:32, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Use Phlip's code with the blank image and add your name. It'll save you a personal image as well. — Defender1031*Talk 03:33, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
I already uploaded a new image, but when I try to use it, it won't come up. I don't need the second personal image anyway, and i'd like to use it to give my page a little more character. Know how to fix it? - Opus the Penguin 03:35, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
You want to change the URL part of the code to url(/images/thumb/a/ac/Penguin_Bottom_10.PNG/600px-Penguin_Bottom_10.PNG) – you can get the url by putting [[Image:Penguin_Bottom_10.PNG|600px]] on a page, hitting Show Preview, right-click the picture and choose "Copy Image Location" or similar. Then remove the "" bit from the start, and wrap it in url(). --phlip TC 03:40, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
I fixed it for you. It'll break if you ever upload a new version of the image. To fix it, put [[Image:Penguin Bottom 10.PNG|600px]] on a page and preview it. that'll restore the image. — Defender1031*Talk 03:42, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks both of you, I was really confused for a minute there. I think I just had the wrong link or something. - Opus the Penguin 03:43, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Chick-fil-A

Do you guys get an employee discount or something? Just curious. Coach 's Cool! 22:05, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

We actually do. 50% on most items as long as we are scheduled for 10 hours during the week. Plus a free meal during our shifts! Btw, nice new sig. Like the pic! - Opus the Penguin 03:49, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
50%? And a free meal? That's pretty cool. And thanks. I thought my sig was kinda boring so I decided to jazz it up with a big round Z. Later! Coach 's Cool! 19:38, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Golf

Nice! Someone who actually plays golf! (and seem to be pretty good!) I've been playing for all of 3 months, and the best score I've ever gotten that I can remember/have the scorecard of it still is 139. Yeah, that's pretty bad... My drive is not what it could/should be. cash money tc 03:33, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

  • I've been "playing"/caddying for my father for as long as I can remember. I started playing for my school three years ago and actually placed fourth in my state individual tournament! I haven't played since then, so I don't know how well I can shoot nowadays. Opus the Penguin 20:39, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Oh man, I played like two days ago. Man it's awesome when you hit a nine iron off the tee onto the money tc 01:34, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
