Unfortunately, the fanstuff was a significant drain on our resources, and with funds being so tight we just can't justify it anymore. I'm afraid it will never be back. Sorry. — It's dot com 04:41, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

What do you have to say about running an archive of our deleted pages? Some sound interesting and I want to see them. I won't become a sysop anytime soon, so... --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 16:44, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

All of the pages that were previously deleted obviously don't need to be kept, hence wwhy they were deleted by the overlords and gods of the wiki. It would be too much trouble to bring them all back anyway, and a troll might grab the code and restore the page. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 17:33, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

50 best sbemails

someone mark this post as patrolled; visit the store if you have to. The post might need a clean up, but it's true. OpenSourceGreg 11:12, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

  • This is true. Someone patrol it; everyone needs to know this!

Can somebody who own the dvd please complete the article ASAP? Omnisweater 17:24, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

The sooner you buy it, the sooner you can take care of that. — It's dot com 21:38, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Image:Egg.jpg

Is it a good idea to make this image transparent so it doesn't look awful on black surfaces? I looked at the thing's user page, and that white box on black is really annoying. I have made a PNG of this, but I don't think it looks that great either. ColdReactive

Signature Size

is my signature size fine? Because the coffee cup only extends a few pixels outside the box -_-

http://hrwiki.org/index.php/User_talk:Iyeru/sig#testing ColdReactive

It's no worse than Phlip's, so I think it is fine. Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:34, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Looks fine to me, too, but I'm the new guy, so don't listen to me :-P LobStoR 00:46, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
edit: you also might be able to crop my screenshot a little bit further, to squeeze your sig down maybe another pixel or so. LobStoR 00:52, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
I made it 18 pixels this time, it should fit better now. ColdReactive
You can leave it 20 pix if you want. There's a slight inconsistency in how the box shows up, but 20pix is the guideline that the wiki's set, and is fine. -128.103.10.135 14:49, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Adopt-A-File?

I noticed there's a HEAVY LOURDE of files on the unusedfiles page. When do these files get deleted, and if they don't, shouldn't we start an Adopt-A-File campaign of some sorts? ColdReactive

No, that's not necessary. — It's dot com 21:48, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
So I'm guessing they never get deleted? ColdReactive
Not in most cases, no. — It's dot com 22:10, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Linking Internal Images to Internal Pages...

How do we do this? [[File:Example.jpg|link=http://wikipedia.org]] doesn't work according to MediaWiki forums because we do not have MediaWiki 1.14+. And I can't use imagemap tag on such a small image as my sig image (as it will just be a circle with an i in it) ColdReactive

Like this: <span class="plainlinks">[http://targetlink.com http://www.hrwiki.org/path/to/Example.jpg]</span>It's dot com 01:52, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
The picture I'm going to link to though is over 500 pixels -_- I doon't think that's small enough to fit in my signature. Plus, you're still linking externallyish using that. ColdReactive
Something like 18px-CupAJoe.png ? (Note: what I thought I was doing didn't actually work... but the end result did anyway... I'm not sure if the URL of the 18px version is permanent or a cache thing though, you might want/need to upload a version that is explicitly the size you want). —98.222.134.36 04:16, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
The 18px thumbnail thing is semi-permanent... it won't disappear on its own, but if you upload a new image over that one, then it'll disappear, and you'll have to look at a page with [[Image:CupAJoe.png|18px]] (either hard-refresh a page that already has it, or add it to a page and show preview, that sort of thing) to get it to re-generate the thumbnail. Best bet is to put that in a <noinclude> section in the sig template itself, just in case. --phlip TC 08:22, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, I did that. Now to wait for someone to vandalize the picture and upload a huge or really, really small one-pixel version of the image. :D ColdReactive
It's like no one knows of the {{pl}} template anymore... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 14:41, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
How do you even USE that template in conjunction with a file? Seems pointless to bring it up here when there's no input for a file. ColdReactive
Like this: {{pl|l=http://www.google.com http://hrwiki.org/images/thumb/e/ea/CupAJoe.png/18px-CupAJoe.png}} makes this :18px-CupAJoe.png. And please sign your talk posts with 4 tildes: ~~~~ MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 14:52, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Sure thing Mike, err, Micheal. ColdReactive 14:59, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
That's much better. And it's Michael. ;) MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 15:00, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Link to Job Queue

The link to the information on Job Queues in Special:Statistics is broken (sort of). It should instead link to Job queue on MediaWiki.org. Homestar-Winner (talk) 18:17, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

New article idea

I've an idea for a new article: fanscripts, people could post scripts that they invented about homestar runner's adventures, please can you consider my idea- posted 23 Thursday 2009 DJ Dumpy Dump

The wiki, as far as I know, doesn't put articles on fanstuff. There are other places you can post things, like the H*R fanstuff wiki (after the purge is over) and the fanstuff forum.--Mariofan1000 16:17, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

new videlectrix update,

im not sure if any of you saw this but theres a new update on the videlectrix site http://www.videlectrix.com/ -WHY ARE YAH MOUSIN MEH IMAGES?!?!?1/?!?GirrByTeWHY ARE YAH MOUSIN MEH IMAGES?!?!?1/?!?

So just post it. There's a template for recent changes that you edit to show the changes, you know. If not, well now you know!

Background Image

I'd like to resurrect a topic that I brought up almost a year ago. Here's a link to the tileable image that I suggest we use as our new background image. Plans were to make the change with update 1.13, which was skipped.. so, what's the plan now? OptimisticFool 13:07, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

I still haven't forgotten about that. — It's dot com 15:42, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
OptimisticFool, would it be too hard to make a different image in the style of the current design of the field? Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:25, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Maybe, maybe not. The sky might present a challenge. Here's a quickly-thrown-together new-style field with an all-white sky, first the tile, and then the tiled result. I'm kind of partial to the older field, but I'm willing to fight with the sky behind the new field if it's the popular vote. OptimisticFool 13:31, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
