:The easiest way to do it is to search for the page you want to create. If it doesn't exist/redirects to another page, you'll see this:
 
-
:<blockquote>'''There is no page titled "hogwash".''' You can [[hogwash|create this page]]</blockquote>
 
-
:Click the red link and you'll be taken to the editing panel. Write up the page, preview it, and save. It's that easy. {{User:Elcool/sig}} 06:05, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

== Changing a FAQ answer ==
 
-
 
-
If you'll look at the post above this one, I answered on how to create a new page. It's a different way that what we [[HRWiki:FAQ#How do I start a new article?|currently suggest]], and I think my way is better, because you also search for the term you are about to create a page about, and with it have fewer steps (Just searching, instead of editing the whole sandbox). Therefore, I think we should change the FAQ. {{User:Elcool/sig}} 06:11, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
 
-
:Sure, why not. I rarely create a page using the redlink method, and only then when it branches off a real page, never from the sandbox. The way you suggest is probably the easiest method to put in the FAQ. It's not the method with the least amount of steps, though. That would be to go to <code><nowiki>http://www.hrwiki.org/wiki/Some new page</nowiki></code> and then click the create tab. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 16:01, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
 
-
::Great :). And it's the easiest way if you're creating a page with spaces in the title or special marks (", ?, !, etc.) and don't want to be bothered with the correct code. {{User:Elcool/sig}} 20:53, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
 
-
:::Spaces and special marks (except the question mark) usually aren't a problem with the quick method, at least not in my browser. I type them in like normal and it converts them to underscores or codes as necessary. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 22:03, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

==A new template==
 
-
Alright, while I'm sure this doesn't belong here, I can't find any place else for it.
 
-
 
-
Is there a template for unanswered questions, such as the [http://www.mariowiki.com/Template:Talk Talk template] on the MarioWiki? I'm there too, and I like to [[Overdescriptive Nouns|answer unanswered questions that need to be answered but cannot be answered since nobody knows that they need to be answered]]. --[[User:Essence of Ghost Water|Essence of Ghost Water]] 11:50, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

== How do you get one of those columns? ==
 
-
 
-
I've noticed on user pages like [[Its dot com]] that there's a column on the right that shows what they like, the first [[Strong Bad Email]] they've ever seen, and what they've purchased from [[the Store]]. I would like to know how you get those on your page, and what types of info you can put on them. Thanks for your help, it's greatly appreciated! --R. Judd 20:48, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

== Separate school account...? ==
 
-
 
-
I was wondering if it would be acceptable to make a account for at school, i.e. since my main account is <b>LikeLakers2</b>, (I'm not making this logged in for security reasons, since its from a shared school computer) I could name it <b>LikeLakers2School</b>, or maybe <b>LL2School</b>. One of the main security reasons is that, if I accidentally forget to logout of the school account, that a vandalism by someone other than me, using my account, would not be as likely to be charged against my main account. (might be finished later, feel free to respond as it is) LikeLakers2, via [[Special:Contributions/204.122.254.23|204.122.254.23]] 15:45, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
 
-
:I really don't think that's necessary. When you log in, just never check the "Remember my login on this computer" box. That way all you have to do to log out is close your browser. Besides, we don't have much of a vandalism problem these days. Are there really that many enemies/morons around you that you think this would be an issue? &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 16:50, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

::Alternatively, you just edit anonymously while at school.  Then there's no chance of someone getting on your main account. -[[Special:Contributions/132.183.151.97|132.183.151.97]] 17:15, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

== Username Change ==

I want to change my name to "Seriously386" Because my current name is too long, unpronouncable, and hard to type. How do I change it? {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 00:34, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

== Can't Set Up an Account ==
 
-
I am trying to set up an account, but when I click the "log in" link in the upper right corner, the Login/ Sign Up page dosn't have a "create account" button. When I click on another link to the page, it says:
 
-
"Permissions Errors
 
-
You do not have permission to create this user account, for the following reason:
 
-
The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups: Bots, Administrators."
 
-
Can someone help me sort this out? [[Special:Contributions/76.182.207.195|76.182.207.195]] 00:53, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

:A few days ago, there was a spam attack, so account creation was disabled. {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 01:03, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
 
-
::That's partially correct. A few days ago, we got finally tired of persistent spam accounts. We'll fully reenable account creation once we improve our spam prevention. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 01:31, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
 
-
Send an email to admin@hrwiki.org with your preferred username and a ''temporary'' password. We'll create the account for you. Once you see that the account has been created, log in and change your password. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 01:31, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

== I can do a mean mocrophone impression, and can't seem to sign up for this telegram machine. ==

I want to have a sub-page of my userpage to have samples of my impressions of characters from Homestar Runner. I was just asking if it was OK, and another thing, I plan to showcase '''a lot more then two''' of impressions on that subpage of my userpage. It's something i've had in mind for a couple of days now. Also, I can't find the sign up area for the Wiki forums, and the Fanstuff Wiki. I want to sign up for at least the Forums, the Fanstuff, if i;m not mistaken, i've heard has some heavy cleanup and sorts going on, so editing is lacked right now, but I'm just curious. Please respond soon! --[[User:Camwoodstock|Camwoodstock]] 22:25, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
 
-
:The Fanstuff Wiki is closed, probably forever. We don't accept fanstuff here on the knowledge base. You'll need to find somewhere else to host it, sorry. If you want a forum account, send us an email and we can set that up for you. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 02:34, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
 
-
::OK. The forum I can just send an e-mail. But, what about my first question? --[[User:Camwoodstock|Camwoodstock]] 15:37, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
 
-
:::I answered that. It's ''not'' okay to have that subpage. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 15:47, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

::::OK then. I'm gonna have to look for where, which that's my own issue then... --[[User:Camwoodstock|Camwoodstock]] 20:21, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

On an article, why is each letter of the title and section titles capitalized? --[[Special:Contributions/88.226.133.92|88.226.133.92]] 14:34, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

:It's called [[Wikipedia:Title Case|Title Case]] and it's generally used in English for any sort of title. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 14:48, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
