[edit] Elbow lickage

Hey, in response to your fun facts- i actually have 2 friends who can actually lick their elbows! crazy, huh? (As I write this, my brother, Bubsty, is sitting here doing his math homework trying extremely hard to lick his elbow. Careful, there.) Thekillerdynamo 04:40, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

I also know someone who can lick their elbow!TheThin 20:33, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
So far all I've managed to do is trip over my math binder while trying. — talk Bubsty edits 00:02, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Wiki


It doesn't matter because that kind of subpage is not allowed. See our subpage guidelines. — It's dot com 01:05, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Hi

Hey the thing! This is — hr.pngBubyman Lets chat. This is all I'm typing for now.

[edit] Sysop

I'm a sysop because Tom looked deep into the magic 8 ball and it said "Signs point to yes. " - Dr Haggis - Talk 05:13, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] bye

Bye The thing! I hope you have a great time while I'm gone... — talk Bubsty edits 01:08, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Validation committee

Hi there The thing. I noticed you joined the validation committee, but your own user page has many validation errors. You might want to start there. Thanks. -- Tom 22:21, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

132 errors. That's why I'll never join the commitee. Thunderbird 00:46, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Welcoming

Why did you welcome Wesleycharles after I just did? DBK! 00:30, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

While I was working on welcoming Wesleycharles You welcomed him, and somthing went wrong and it welcomed twice.TheThin 00:34, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Oh, I understand. Well now Wesleycharles probably feels very loved. DBK! 00:35, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Welcome template

While you're personalized welcome template is fine, the datestamp is a bit outdated. Perhaps taking out the datestamp altogether would be a bit simpler? Also, if you type {{subst:User:The thing/Welcome}} instead, it will save a static version of the welcome template to their page. Then that's what they'll see when they edit, instead of just a one line template. The other thing you could try (to fix the datestamp issue) would be to take out your datestamp and sig, and just sign your template:

{{subst:User:The thing/Welcome}}~~~~

It's up to you how you want to fix it, but in any case it should be "subst'd", to leave behind a full version. I'm sure you can also come up with some kind of solution to clean it up a bit. Thunderbird 01:02, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Thanks

Hey, thanks for signing my guestbook. If you want, put your favorite Sbemail under the Sbemail section of my User page. Thanks again! Bluebry muffin 14:34, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Hey! sorry about being late on that. Didn't really know. It's fixed. Check it out! Bluebry muffin 14:45, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] User:The thing/Bye

Put User:The thing/Bye on your plain ol' user page please. You don't need subpages for that. —BazookaJoe 19:42, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Can I have a subpage for it?TheThin 19:43, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
No. —BazookaJoe 19:44, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
OKTheThin 19:45, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Signature

Just a heads up, that today we implemented our new signature standards. Below is your current signature, with the blue box being the maximum length allowed. I'm sure you'll be able to figure out some way of shrinking your signature a bit to fit inside. Thanks alot, Thunderbird 00:41, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

The Thing We need to talk.

I fixed it.TheThin 00:48, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
Still not fixed. TheThin
Can this be good enough? TheThin 00:50, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
Would you be okay with the one I put above the box? That one's probably close enough. If you don't mind it, then just copy the code into your own signature. I hate to be so nitpicky, but especially in things like the STUFF tables, one sig going over sets the bar. I'm sure you can understand. Thunderbird 01:06, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
Yea I like the way you did better.TheThin 01:15, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
Then would you like me to change your sig to that? Thunderbird 02:04, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Subpages

Hey, The thing. I noticed that you have a lot of subpages that you don't really need. I am going to help you clean these up. We are going to follow the policy in HRWiki:User space.

A redirect to User talk:The thing/Welcome. Nothing links here. This one will be deleted.
A manually maintained duplicate of the guestbook on your user page. It's only linked through an Easter egg in your own signature. This one does not fit the policy. It will be deleted. Please remove the link from your user page.
This is unnecessary because you keep the code for the signatures right on your user page. Please unlink this page.
Links to 3 pictures. They got deleted. This subpage is not linked to from anywhere. It will be deleted.
You may keep this.
This is some type of signature. If you would like to keep it, please move the code to your user page. Not linked to from anywhere. Will be deleted.
This seems to be a talk archive. Except you have all of this on your talk page. This isn't linked to from anywhere, and will be deleted.
Policy does not allow this. Please unlink this from your user page. You can use this similar link instead.
You may keep this.
You may keep this for now.
You may keep this for now.
The raw signatures of all who signed your guestbook. I find this to be overusing the privelege of subpages. No pages link to it. It should be deleted.
The good-bye for Bubsty. Not subpage worthy. Please copy it and put it somewhere. It can be on your user page if you like. This will be deleted. Please remove or change the two links to this that are on your user page.
Other users protesting the existence of User:The thing/Whatever. This will be deleted.
Code for another signature. Please copy the code to your user page if you would like to keep it. This will be deleted.
This will be deleted.

Thanks for understanding, BazookaJoe 02:40, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Poll

Hey, thanks for voting in my poll! Unluckily, you broke the rules. Umm, you added characters. Actually, I will keep Trogdor, but not his 20X6 counterpart. I'm very sorry. I will delete Trogador, and you may vote for someone else. I'm still so sorry. --Bluebry muffin 03:45, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Recent Changes Patrol

Hey, do they tell you when recent changes occur, or do you just have to look around. (I asked you this because I saw your name on the Recent Changes Patrol) Bluebry muffin 05:12, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

A red exclamation mark on Recent Changes is an unpatrolled edit. Click on (diff) to view the edit and patrol it. There aren't any on RC right now, because someone has patrolled them. —FireBird|Talk 05:17, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
1 (diff)?
2 Is it worth it?
Bluebry muffin 13:58, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
1. Yes, (diff). It is the first link beside any bullet on Recent Changes.
2. That's up to you.
FireBird|Talk 21:01, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Personal Images

The thing, you currently have four personal images (Image:Bowling.gif, Image:car.gif, Image:Cuddle.gif, and Image:edoller.PNG). You may only have two large images and one small image for your signature (you already have one for your signature, Image:Eggseaster.PNG). Please mark two of the four large images to be deleted. Thanks. —FireBird|Talk 21:01, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] My Sig Help

Does anyone know how to make the picture in my sig go to My Contribtions? TheThin 14:14, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

It can't-- Benol, aka Coach B 16:17, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
Why? TheThin 16:18, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
You didn't submit the pic, so it isn't your contrib-- Benol, aka Coach B 16:19, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] tofu

I don't really like tofu. teeeffoh! 19:08, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

Neither do I. TheThin 20:50, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Cool person

May I just ask why I'm on your cool person list and why I'm cool person of the week? DBK! 20:56, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

I rely don't know. TheThin
Is it just because I have a cool person list and you wanted to be on it? DBK! 21:17, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
No TheThin 21:19, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
Okay, just clearing things up. DBK! 21:20, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Re: Subpages

Hey, bud. Could you please follow through with the instructions above? Thanks. —BazookaJoe 00:13, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Guestbook

The thing, there's a certain aspect about randomly posting messages on talk pages that people don't like. You've been told not to tell people to make a guestbook, and even throwing it out to a user as a suggestion counts too.

We are trying to build an encyclopedia here. This is not the best place on the internet to "hang out" and chat with other people. You can go to the forum for that, or even the fanstuff wiki. Even if our forum doesn't load on your computer, there are a lot of other Homestar Runner forums out there.

Editing User pages and User talk pages all day is not what this wiki is about. It is about improving articles. I noticed some edits that you made about a week ago to some articles, and those were terrific! I was very proud. If you can find an article to improve rather than chatting on users' talk pages all the time, I can guarantee you better success in this community.

Crapfully yours,

BazookaJoe 01:11, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
