[edit] Pop

Curious as to what your issue is with User:Color Printer/Pop. According to our policy, it's OK to have a subpage for "a work in progress, until it is ready to be released". I saw no evidence of a user template there. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:44, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Actually, I included User:Color Printer/Project in there. Sorry, I didn't know I was doing something wrong. --Color Printer 01:45, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
I see it now. Actually, that might not be a bad idea for a wiki template for use by any user... hmm... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:46, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, it wasn't a big deal or anything. I have no problem with a similar communial template, I actually like the idea of it. But that template as a user subpage had no reason to be nested, when the contents could easily just be duplicated at the top. Hope I didn't offend anyone. Thunderbird 05:06, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Help!

My page is broken. I need help. Can you fix it? User:Strong Badman or User:Strong Badman 2

[edit] Hey dude, I am going away

Hey Thunderbird, I am offically leaving this Wiki. You were the sysop who helped me out the most, so I thought I would tell you I am going away. Thanks for what you do for the Wiki man. Not just you, but everyone else. I remember the one good thing I did on the Wiki, and that was helping Has Matt? stop a troll. Adios everyone! Beat 01:49, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

No problem. Though it seems you've been pretty inactive since March, so it looks like there won't really be much of an immediate change in your presence here. In any case, glad that I could help. Thunderbird 23:36, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Huh-whaa??

Did you catch a raven, or is no longer important to you to do so? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:20, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Haha. Well originally my task was to "Get a Danish", then later to "Catch a Raven", but at this point in my life I've decided to change my priorities, and simply wait for come what may. Perhaps one day I'll throw one of those tasks back up there, already crossed off, or perhaps even a different but similar one, but for now that kind of goal is no longer in my immediate sights. Thunderbird 03:26, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
I can understand giving up on a raven, but a Danish? Come on, this is accomplishable! Don't quit on that! What message are you sending to the UM-13's? You can't do what's in your reach? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:30, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
I haven't given up. Though I do plan on someday getting a danish, a raven, or something similar, I'm not actively pursuing such a goal at this time. One day, definently. If I were presented a danish, a raven, or something else tomorrow, I'd seriously consider accepting it. But for the time being the pursuit of such has been pushed to the back of my priorities. It's not that its not accomplishable, I've just re-considered my future goals. Thunderbird 03:36, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
Update: I did end up catching my Raven. :) Thunderbird 21:48, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Funnily enough, I ended up catching a spring swallow. Go figure! Heimstern Läufer 16:17, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Not done and not done

I didn't want to litter IRF's page with talkage, but your birthday wish is barely readably on a computer screen. The image is too small and the color is a bit faded. It's your birthday wish, but I'm just pointing out. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 22:04, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Hmmm... Seems to be fine on my computer. I thought images were more or less universal for size and quality from the source, but I could be totally wrong on that. Perhaps I'll ask IRF, since he's the only one who really needs a solid copy-and-paste of the image anyways. Thanks for the heads up! Thunderbird 22:08, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
Images that are small on a monitor (especially if they contain fine lines) almost never look good in printed form. That's been my experience as a printer. — It's dot com 22:11, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
Hi, no probalo. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 22:12, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
*Sigh*, I suppose I'll re-make it bigger then. In my experance, resizing a scanned printed message usually makes it choppy or pixely, so I was going for "actual size". Would you reccomend a larger printing size, thicker tip, etc? Thunderbird 22:15, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
Well, if it's handwritten and scanned, probably the best thing to do would be to just scan it again... Find some resolution setting in the scanning software and knock that up a couple of notches... Your average screen is around 72 or 96 DPI, for printing you generally want something in the order of 300... give or take a factor of 2, depending on the quality you're after. My signature was only about 3cm long on paper, but it's a hires scan. --phlip TC 03:16, 29 October 2006 (UTC)
I also could not make it legible on my screen. I R F 14:30, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Welcome Templates

Hi. I just became a member of the Welcoming Commitee, and I heard that you were good on making welcome message templates. Could you email me back about this? Makatota 16:15, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

It seems that you were sorely mis-lead on that, since while I have welcomed a fair number of new users in the past, I've only ever used the standard {{subst:welcome|~~~|~~~~~}} template, which in my opinion is all you ever need to use anyways. Sorry to crush your hopes and dreams, Thunderbird 16:46, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Page Deletion

I have some user subpages that are just taking up space. Could you delete them for me please? They are: ‎User:AtionSong/ISketch, User:AtionSong/Voting Testing Grounds, and User:AtionSong/Sighting Categories. Thanks. -AtionSong 22:08, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

I went ahead and took care of it. Heimstern Läufer 22:29, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
"And that's the end of that chapter". Thunderbird 00:54, 21 November 2006

[edit] Cell Test

test edit from my cell phone. don't mind me. -t bir

Huh. Works. Not very efficent, but it'd work in a pinch. Thunderbird 23:36, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
Congrats, You've earned ten extra points on the geek-scale. Loafing 23:46, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
Woo hoo! Thunderbird 15:22, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

[edit] One Day I Hope To Be A Sysop

Hi, bro. Um, yeah I hope to become a moderator on this wiki someday. I edited it almost everyday before I became a user for almost a year... and um... one day I want that wish to become true. Oh, and... tell "ramrod" from the forums that "Mr.Clucky1" is sorry. Please. --Theyellowdart 05:51, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
Ummm.... 'kay. Thunderbird 01:57, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
Thanks. ramrod is a good mod. Tell him I said that too... nah I'm just kidding. Anyway, thanks dude! --Theyellowdart 04:05, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Help out

  • Hey, I'm thinking about creating a new page, but I don't know what to call it and I don't know all of its info. The page will be about interuppted names Strong Bad usually starts sounding out before getting interrupted by someone. Such as in bottom 10: He says, "and the number one spot in my bottom 10 is... Th--" and then gets interrupted. Please help out. I am sending this to all sysops. --TheYellowDart(t/c)

[edit] Lucky Yates Show

Is there any reason why you made several links to the Lucky Yates Show but never created that page? It doesn't look very good having those three red links on non-talk pages. Homestar-Winner (talk) 01:35, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Those are there for concerned folks such as yourself to create a page for it. There should be a page, that's a constant reminder to create one... Eventually. Thunderbird 06:31, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] My way cool user's list

Hey Thunderbird, if you want you can put this on your user page:

It's not quite right and you don't have to if you dont want to. Pacoman 20:52, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Um, Thunderbird? I changed my users list box so people wouldn't get it confused with the subtitles project (because of the pic) so my new userbox is under way and will be available at my talk page soon (I hope). Thanks Pacoman 03:31, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
Here you go!!!

Thanks to theyellowdart for fixing it for me Pacoman 01:52, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

[edit] NYU Talk DVD

Hi, T-bird. You're back! At least it appears that way... or perhaps you never left? Anyway, I'm posting a message to you here in the hopes you'll find it. Long ago I meant to ask if you ever received the DVD I sent you of the NYU Talk. It probably arrived safely, but I never knew for sure. I also would like to thank you (four years belated) for the Flashforward 2006 Seattle CD you sent me. Have a great one! —THE PAPER PREEEOW 07:24, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I received it, thanks. I actually never left, I've still been here to check the new toon every week, I just haven't been contributing much, because all the things I wanted to do and projects I wanted to spearhead have been done, and I no longer feel my touch is needed on certain things or projects to get them just right. Since my lapse in contributing, everything has been running quite nicely, confirming my feelings of not being indispensable. I felt adding the first new toon in the longest hiatus ever to my previous pet project of H* updates was a fitting contribution I'd be proud to make. Also getting terribly busy with life, between work and school and wife and other commitments was also a motivating factor of cutting back my wiki time. Keep rocking on though, I'll still be around as long as Homestar is. Thunderbird 19:13, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
