[edit] Coolness!

Your user talk page (and everything else) is now in Trebuchet MS, Just like in JoeyDay's sig. It looks much better this way. — Seriously (Talk) 14:55, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] My sig

STAY AWAY FROM MY Sigg. Wait one sec. HAHAHAHAHA. Nah I am just kidding, but thanks for doing that for me. - H*Bad

Anytime. ;) Thunderbird 21:03, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
As you can tell I am very very happy today for no reason. So I will sound all weird. :) - H*Bad

[edit] Resoultion

You may be interested to know that I can see your page with no problems at 1024x768 screen resoultion. ~Linuxerist L / T 07:05, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Oh good. I just threw that up there a long time ago, I should probably change that. I just chose those numbers because that's what I use, and it looks good to me. Thinking about it now though, it's probably got a pretty flexible layout, yeah. Thanks, I'll change that a bit later to something fresh. Thunderbird 07:30, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] My bro

Is it ok if my bro makes a user on here. I am telling you this so you guys don't think I am creating sockpuppets or anything. He is wanting the user:lil H*bad by the way.--H*bad 22:34, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

I guess it doesn't matter.--The cheatman 01:01, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Seriously

I don't think that *'s are allowed on here. I don't want to be a tattle tail but he has a lot of them on his page.--The cheatman 01:01, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

Not here bro. The mighty thunderbird has no power at the fanstuff. So leave him alone.--H*bad 01:03, 7 April 2006 (UTC)
{This has since been changed}

[edit] Moving day

I am now moving in to this wiki. They don't like me so well at the Fanstuff so I am moving here to the good wiki.--H*bad 00:27, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] What's In a Name. Really

Hey why do you have your name translated into Spanish, German and Hebrew? Any particualr reasons? Raptor5ix-Image:Raptor5ixsiggy.png 00:42, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

Heh, not really. Just because we have users here that speak Spanish, German, and Hebrew, so I figured why not. You're welcome to add a translation of "Thunderbird", if you know it for Ukranian or something. Thunderbird 01:53, 9 April 2006 (UTC)
"Meh," He tought, "Why not". So here's the closest I can get to it as there is no such thing as a thunderbird in Ukraininan: гримовий птах. BTW don't wanna suck up or anything but SWEET PAGE Raptor5ix-Image:Raptor5ixsiggy.png 20:53, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
Thanks man, that's totally being added. is гримовий "Thunder", and "птах" Bird? Thunderbird 20:55, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] I left...

... something in the Sandbox... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:01, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

"I left something in the Sandbox". Heh, that's gotta be one of the funniest quotes of yours I've ever heard. But yeah, that would be a decent alternative. Perhaps propose a revision at Elcool's STUFF page. I'm just waiting for them to decide it's fate. :) Thunderbird 22:05, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Since mean ole Dot Com busted the party ;) Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:18, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

I realize I was the party pooper, but we shouldn't encourage voting on personal things or use STUFF elements outside STUFF pages. I like the userbox, though. — It's dot com 22:21, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
Oh, I understand, hence the winky. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:22, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the revision though, Qermaq. I'm gonna go change it right now. Thunderbird 22:31, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
Mind If I use this for my page? No, okay thanks (lol) Raptor5ix-Image:Raptor5ixsiggy.png 00:31, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
I came up with the original, but Qermaq added the image for me. In any case, go right ahead. Fair trade for your translation skills. ;) Thunderbird 00:43, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Canada?

You live in Canada? What is it like there? Do you ever eat interesting foods, like... back bacon? Did you perhaps learn a second language, like French? Or have a pet... walrus? In any case, nice to meet you Canuck. Qermaq (Talk | contribs) 00:10, 11 April 2006 (left unsigned)

Yes I do live in Canada. It's cold up here in the winter. I eat back bacon on occasion, but usually I prefer normal bacon. I probably should have learned a second language, but didn't. I used to have a few pets, Dogs, cats, rabbits, but currently I have none. Nice to meet you too, Qermaq. Thunderbird 04:14, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Oh, ho! I was indeed nice to meet you, Poopaw! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 04:24, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] autograph?

Woah, you got an autograph from Matt and Mike? Lucky! Man... I live in Seattle, and yet I didn't go to Flashfoward! — talk Bubsty edits 04:38, 13 April 2006 (UTC)
Heh, well it would have been pricey for you anyways. Upwards of... several hundred dollars. There'll probably be another chance for you sometime though. Thunderbird 07:21, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Contents Question

Is it possible to get a contents for your user page? I see that you got one in this user talk but when I went to see what you put in to get one of em the only thing I saw seperating the "⇔Thunversations⇔" from this part of the conversation page was a in caps message about not editing above this line or haveing to face the rath of some undetermined fate. So I look all over everywhere I can't find anything in there that let's you have a contents box though I did realize that the URL is different. Am I overlooking something, Is the Box supplied when you get a long enough page, Are some pages just equiped with this from the begining? When I held my mouse over the hide / show button it reads "javascript:toggleToc()" and I know what javascript is. Whenever i go to edit something I look at where the contents are and... it pulls a Houdini.... upon hiting the "Show preview" thing It includes this in the contents. If you don't mind clearing this up for my that would be appriciated.

The top line regarding Thundery rath and all that, is just to protect my Talk archives navigation template, so you can go from month to month of old conversations. The reason my userpage does not have a table of contents, is simple. If you look at the very bottom of the code (by clicking "edit" but not saving it) I put at the bottom a little "__NOTOC__". What that does, is prevents a table of contents from appearing. "Don't ask me why I did it... Because I already forgot." Now whether they appear or not, is somewhere under your personal preferences, the same place you set your sig, etc. You choose in your personal settings to display Tables of Contents or not. If you choose to show them, then once a page gets more than three headers (A header is defined by a little edit tag so you can edit the sub section), then it will display a table of contents for you. Putting "__TOC__", "__NOTOC__" or "__FORCETOC__" on a page will override your preferences. The first one will make the TOC appear after a page has three headings (regardless of what you have selected in your preferences), the second one will not allow the TOC to appear, and the third one will cause a TOC to appear on the page even when there's less than three headings. Some of these are used on pages around the wiki, for instance you'll notice The updates pages shouldn't have tables of contents whether it's selected under preferences for you or not. Since that page has so many headings, a TOC would be very long, therefore we use __NOTOC__. But whether they appear or not, they're automatically generated, you won't see a code for them or anything. I hope that answers your question Yoshi, let me know if you have any others. Thunderbird 07:45, 13 April 2006 (UTC)
To clarify: normally a page will automatically get a TOC just before the first heading if there are more than 3 headings on the page (provided it's turned on in your prefs). __NOTOC__ forces there to be no TOC, __FORCETOC__ forces there to be a TOC, and __TOC__ forces there to be a TOC and moves the TOC to where you wrote __TOC__ (instead of the normal place, between the opening text and the first heading). This lets you do fancy things, like <div style="float:right">__TOC__</div> to get a floating TOC (like on my talk page). On a tangent, is a similar tag, __NOEDITSECTION__, which stops the [edit] links from appearing next to the headers. --phlip TC 07:56, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Happy easter

hello thunderbird l17, how are you, how is easter (If you celebrate it?)?

Anything happen to you?

Nikolce Kocovski 01:58, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Hi Nikolce. Though I don't actually celebrate Easter, I do observe something similar, and I appreciate the sentiment. Not much has happened lately, except that I've been looking after somebody's house and dog while they're in Italy. Talk to you later, Thunderbird 02:14, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] NYU Talk

I noticed NYU Talk on your unfinished jobs. I have the DVD of it as was planning on doing it. You want to do it together? --Dacheatbot · Communicate 21:57, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Actually, I've been planning on getting around to it, but I'm still gonna be pretty busy for the next few days. What I was planning, was instead of trying to transcribe the whole thing, summarize it in the same fashion as the Flashforward page. Not only is that easier to write, as you can listen to a minute of it and then summarize without going over it repeatedly, but I find it's also an easier read than a terribly long mega-page. If you want to try and get some done in that way, go ahead. I'll also try and get it done sometime later, and I'm sure various users would go over what you write and fix any spelling or grammatical errors. That's what they did for me. :) Thunderbird 22:54, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
Good Idea. Can I do it with you? --Dacheatbot · Communicate 23:01, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
Sure. You can start working on it, if I have time I'll try to get some done too. And of course I and other users will probably try to help out a bit too, once you get the ball rolling. Thunderbird 05:19, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Personal Images

{In reply to a note left on Wiki grrl's talk page regarding excess personal images}

I decide to abandon the first one. Thankyou for helping me!

Wiki grrl

[edit] Personal Image

If it wouldn't be too much of a hassle for you, you could update the small homsar image with C Sours' image of homsar in motion, since this is the image in my sig right now. If it's too much trouble for you, you can just delete it. Thanks.--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 00:06, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

It'll be done by tomorrow. Thunderbird 20:16, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Excess images.

Nice work, man. You and Phlip. I'm sure you guys are having the time fo your life. I'm in school, so I can't help you there, but keep on tranglin'! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 06:43, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

All told, we managed to tag around 25 images as Non-standard linked images, and clear out around 180 long abandoned, duplicate, incorrectly formatted, or otherwise unusable images. Thunderbird 20:22, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] DELETE!!!! (Page Blanked)

I have seen what you have done and made one user very mad!If you want to know who, just ask E.L. drool!I am delteting everything! feel my wrath!!!!!!

[edit] Guitar

Hey, just so you know (though I'm sure you already do), I uploaded the guitar image for you folks again. Have some good times with it! - Jweb Guru 15:17, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks! Thunderbird 15:20, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
