[edit] Friendly Ware info on Floppy Disk Container

I was playing those Friendly Ware games back when I was 8! Happy to help with the info! --a WikiGnome

[edit] Re: note for Tom to enlarge virus Floppy image

I did resize the image. Hit ctrl+F5 to refresh. The image is Image:Floppy_virus.png. And I guess you didn't like the NPOV-type explanation for the game I put there? -- Tom 11:18, 15 Nov 2004 (MST)

[edit] Quote Of Week Box Design

Wow...I'm impressed yet again with 'The King of Screenshots.' You get a pizza trophy for 'image appropriateness' on the Quote of the Week article. I'm glad someone finally noticed what I was attempting to say when I provided those links to pictures/flash file of the new design. Your decision to make a thumbnailed screenshot was the best way to illustrate the current situation regarding the newest quote(s). I'm still not sure what to make of Homestar's appearance on a quote by obviously uttered by Strong Bad. What do you think is the reason behind this?

At present, I'm trying to figure out the best way I can state "Because of TBC's newly-implemented "Quote of the 'Whenever'" design, any attempts to open the file after you have saved "qod.swf" will be futile as the quote will not pop up from the screen like it normally used to with any quote file prior to the 'I doh du duoh crapfully yours' one. This may be due to changes in flash code/programming that now link directly to MPEG Layer 3 file(s) as opposed to a 'hot-wired' .WAV file and a link to a ZIP archive." Sheesh! I'm trying to consolidate all of the following reasoning into one grammical sentence, but it's difficult! sm02.gif --The Paper 05:42, 24 Nov 2004 (MST)

[edit] Discussions with Thunderbird

(This conversation is copied from FireBird's talk page)

Awww man, I haven't gotten ANY mail yet, hate or otherwise. Maybe I need to step up my workage. Either way, yea, you're doing great. I had no idea you were only a sixth grader. Makes me feel... Old. And your sig inspires me to one day upgrade mine. -- Thunderbird 00:45, 26 Nov 2004 (MST)  :)
Yep. Just a sixth grader. And you're doing great on your workage. You've been working on a lot of big projects lately (Strong Bad Email By Name of Sender, place), and you deserve some mail. In fact...→FireBird
Oh thank you. I still have to work on the Costumes alot more. I've been kinda leaving the info section adrift this whole time. But yea, I thought you meant ACTUAL in-your-inbox-email. Yea, I've gotten chatter and stuff on my talk page, but still no hate-talk. Still, maybe one day I'll have the priviledge of revert a troll from my Userspace or something... -- Thunderbird 09:07, 26 Nov 2004 (MST)
Oh, no. I really don't think anyone knows my e-mail address around here. But anyways, I noticed that you had a lot of clutter in you talk page, and I was wondering why you said you hadn't had any mail. And maybe you will get the priviledge of reverting a troll from your userspace. Even though it's not really a priviledge. It's more of an annoyance. :) → FireBird

Hey Fire, me again. I saw your awsome sig, and I was wondering... Would you mind if I kind of... semi-copied it? Not exactly the same, just the same kind of format, only in gold color for Thunder. Then we'd be like... The twin birds of power on this Wiki! Anyways, if you don't want me to do it, feel free to tell me and I'll completely change it in like 10 seconds. I don't want to tread on any toes, and if you want a different sig I completely understand. But here it is for now, please give me an answer sometime soon. Thanks.

'P.S.' If it is okay with you for me to keep it, then how can I get the blue line out from under the arrow. Also, is it possible to exchange the arrow for different symbols? If so how? Just to make it a little less... Copied. Anyways, once again, if it's okay with you for me to keep my sig, then could you give me pointers on just what all the symbols mean and how I can change them to ultimate my sig? Thanks again.

[[User:Thunderbird L17|→ Thunderbird]] The Raw Code: →''<small><tt>[[User:Thunderbird L17|<font color=gold> Thunderbird</font>]]</tt></small>''

Hey. That's a nice sig, and I don't mind if you keep it.
To get the arrow un-linked, the code should look like this:

→''<small><tt>[[User:ThunderBird L17|<font color=gold>Thunderbird</font>]]</tt></small>''

If it does, then I'm really not sure what to do.
And if you want to change the arrow for different symbols, there is a full list in the Editing Help page. →FireBird
What the heck? I can't get the arrow unlinked... Unless... Do you cut and paste your signature each time, or do you have it set in your Preferences and use the ~~~ meathod to display it? Because I have it set in Preferences and the Arrow is linked as well. If I just cut and paste it looks like this:


But if I use the shortcut then it becomes linked.

[[User:Thunderbird L17|⇒Thunderbird]]

So thats probably it. Correct me if I'm wrong. But other than that it looks awsome.

P.S. If you had yours red, then it would be like twin sigs, red for Fire, and Gold for Thunder... :) I don't know if this is gonna be my final sig design, but it looks pretty good and close now. Thanks for all your help. I'm gonna see if I can find a little bird symbol somewhere and cut and paste it, instead of the arrow. But it's pretty close now.

(Oh, and I fixed your spelling on your main page. Put it back if that's the way you wanted it.)

Well I just copy and paste it from my user page, so that's probably the reason. Also, you need to type out "→" for the arrow when you cut and paste. But if it looks like this:

→''<small><tt>[[User:ThunderBird L17|<font color=gold>Thunderbird</font>]]</tt></small>''

with "→ spelled out, it should work out. You do probably need to put it on your user page and copy and paste it every time you need it.
Oh. And I really don't want to make my signiture red because then it might look like a broken link. →FireBird(For some reason, "nowiki" isn't "nowiki"ing the arrow code. So when you reply back, just look here for the code for the arrow.)
I believe the right arrow (→) can be show on a page as "&rarr;". All one has to do is put "&amp;rarr;" in the edit box. You just have to be one step ahead of MediaWiki with those ampersands. Whoa, that's confusing. -- Tom 14:21, 28 Nov 2004 (MST)
I see. Thanks. →FireBird

Yea, you can also just cut and paste the arrow, thats what I did here: → so it seems to work fine. And for your sig in your preferances, so you can do the ~~~~ meathod with the time stamp, it does just link everything, including the arrow. But I've got a remedy of sorts for it so it doesn't look so out of place, and I think my sig looks mighty good now. Thanks for all your help. [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]]

Oh great, now it only links the first one... Oh well, it's a work in progress... [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔ Thunderbird ⇔]] 00:11, 29 Nov 2004 (MST)

Okay, my sig is done. Thanks for your help, and sorry that this conversation kinda spiraled into a huge mass of text. Feel free to condence it or what not now, since this conversation can probably finally be put to rest. What do you think of it?

My New Sig:

[[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 19:24, 29 Nov 2004 (MST)

Pretty dern awesome. →FireBird

[edit] Good jorb.

Good jorb on all these projects you've been working on. Good prize. → FireBird

[edit] Catagorization

I've been trying to move the categorization away from the Reject/Inside Joke/Full fledged thing structure for a while now. I don’t think the number of times something is mentioned should be a factor in this resource. Having said that, I'm still not quite sure where to put pages like the Halloween Costumes, and Floppy Disk Container. They are Lists for sure, but they go deeper than that. Those pages, along with the SBEmail by name/location are more like database reports rather than core articles. All the info on them is somewhere else on the site, but it has been reformatted into a kind of database query response.

We could make a Halloween category, to put in toons, Punkin Stencils and the costume list.
