[edit] Welcome!

Welcome to the Homestar Runner Wiki! I wanted to extend a personal welcome, since I believe strongly that a Wiki should be a democratic and non-threatening place where everyone feels like they can contribute. Unfortunately it can be very frustrating at first if you make changes that are ignored or changed back by other users, but if so I encourage you to hang in there; as you get a feel for the way things are done around here you'll feel more at home. That was my experience, anyway!

If you need any help, feel free to ask anyone on the welcoming committee (like me!). You can also post questions on the FAQ talk page.

Here are some tips to get you started:

  • If you need general information, editing tips, or answers to frequently asked questions, check out the help page.
  • Before you do any significant editing, be sure to familiarize yourself with our wiki standards.
  • Read up on the rules and guidelines for your user page. What you're reading right now, by the way, is the "Talk:" page that goes with your user page. It's a good way to communicate directly with specific users. The best way to respond, though, is on the same user page where the conversation was started. E.g. if you have a question, go to my user talk page and edit it, then watch my page (via Recent changes) for a response.
  • If you're not sure what you can do to help out, head over to The Stick.
  • If you're looking for more community interaction, you can also register over at our forum and get More Community Interaction Than You Or Your Grandmother Can Handle!
  • Above all, be bold and have fun!

Feel free to delete this message when you're done reading it. (In general, it's frowned on to delete other people's input on talk pages, but this entry is just here to be helpful. When it's done being helpful, I guarantee you won't hurt my feelings by ditching it!)

Sincerely, and the rest of the welcoming committee (23:20, 10 October 2005 (UTC))

[edit] Boxes?

What do you mean by fancy boxes?--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 04:11, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

I think he means graphics templates. POwned, one of the best ways to figure out wikicode is to surf other's pages, examine their code, and, well, borrow it for your own purposes. I've gotten help with my signature, graphics, thumbnails, formatting, and colors just by examining how others created their code.
Just make sure you don't accidentally edit code you look at, or directly copy someone else's look (unless the graphic/template/code is common domain, like the SBEmail screens), and you'll learn a lot. — THE SMOKING MONKEY 12:45, 25 October 2005 (UTC)
