the next epi-snowed

I added that fun fact because it is a little odd that Blue Laser would tell his minion to add something that has already been added, especially since Blue Laser appears to be staring at the list as he says it. I would think this merits some fun fact-ness. —Guard Duck talk 22:23, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

It's been added and removed a couple of times, and is on the talk page without much response. I personally think that something that obvious isn't notable, that's all. You are right, i should have been a bit descriptive in my summary. (Also thank you, my talk page is no longer lonely.) — Defender1031*Talk 22:31, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Happy 8600

If the template IS on the page, shouldn't we link to it? Why aren't the TD and iMac onthere, either? -- Lazylaces Talk 14:45, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

This is not the place for this discussion. They are not on there because they are not strong bad's nor has he ever used them to check an email of his... actually, on second thought, he DID use TG once... so perhaps that one should be... i don't know, why not start a thread on the talk page for that template, as in, not here. — Defender1031*Talk 17:46, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Good user

Would I be qualified as a good user? I know I don't do much, but I try to make articles and Images better... MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif

Everybody is a good user! We all do something to help the wiki as long as you're editing, I like to think. Acam30 12:30, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
Do I qualify? BBG 02:01, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
Of course! :] MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif

You deserve this. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 03:45, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. — Defender1031*Talk 03:49, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

You deserve this. You earned it, so hang it on your talk page in honor! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 16:26, 7 December 2008 (UTC)


Sorry that I was mad at you at the talk page. I hadn't exactly realized what you were doing. Sorry. Thanks! —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 22:44, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Not a problem. I understood that you were unaware of the proper way to move an article. — Defender1031*Talk 22:48, 7 October 2008 (UTC)


Will you umm... make me a... halloween sig? Acam30 01:25, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I can try, but my sig is very simple, just a gradient. All i did was change the colors of it. In truth, i'm pretty bad at sig-making. I would probably temporarily make homsar in orange on a black background and do something with the letters and those colors. — Defender1031*Talk 01:38, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
I can help with the image, if I'm not stepping on anyone's toes here.. (a pink pool of blood, perhaps?) ;) OptimisticFool 01:45, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm already in the process of uploading... some of the edges are a bit off, but i expect it won't matter in the 20px size anyway. — Defender1031*Talk 01:49, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Ooh okay. Coolio! Opty... for the image I was thinking maybe HOmsar dressed as Slash? Acam30 01:51, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
In that case, i'll let opty handle the image. (I suggest re-uploading over the existing Image:HomsarInPink.png so that it doesn't use another PI page for Acam, as well as so that that part of the sig doesn't need changing.) — Defender1031*Talk 01:55, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Done. OptimisticFool 02:17, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps it'd look better if you gave him an orange shirt? — Defender1031*Talk 02:19, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
I don't know. Orange and black aren't the only colors that would look Halloweenish. But here's what he looks like at full size and as part of the sig:
Acam30 orangeslash20pxva7.png
Acam, your thoughts? OptimisticFool 02:38, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
YAAAAAY!!! Thanks guys! Me likey! Acam30 11:33, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Do you prefer the blue- or the orange-shirted Homsar-as-Slash? OptimisticFool 17:02, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Blue is grood. I likes it! Acam30 11:22, 11 October 2008 (UTC)


DeFender, you need to be a sysop. I'm surprised that no one else has made you one yet. You would make an awesome one! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 11:40, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Wait, DeFender's not a sysop?! I'm speechless here, honestly! I agree, he needs to be one! -- 02:28, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Truthfully now, I wouldn't mind him to die in a hole. 19:32, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Wha... why?! What'd Deffy do this time? Acam30 19:34, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
He didn't die. 19:35, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
I assure you, i'm dead on the inside. Seriously, let's not do this here. — Defender1031*Talk 19:37, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Actually, I agree with Acam. He needs to live and live as an admin, now that I think about it... =370.148.111.10 19:47, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Your Pic

Defender, the Fire in your pic kinda looks like The Cheat is on Fire... a very crude The Cheat that is. :P --Wi2K Talk-Favorites-173 16:01, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

To me it looks more like a dinosaur smoking a cigarette... — Defender1031*Talk 16:06, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Your sig pic

Do you want me to possibly remove the background? Just wondering, I'm bored and have photoshop and need to do something productive. -- Lazylaces Talk 12:40, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

No thanks. I don't feel like wasting a personal image and wiki server space on a one-time holiday sig. — Defender1031*Talk 15:48, 21 October 2008 (UTC)


How do you write scripts? Like to do a gradient comment. Where do I go? What do I do? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 00:00, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't know what you mean by "comment". But the script i wrote to do gradients is in C++. I've spent nearly 4 years studying programming, which is how i know how to write scripts. I don't know where to tell you to begin. — Defender1031*Talk 00:01, 29 October 2008 (UTC)


Bee day!

Well, not where I am, but in Israel I guess it is. Here's a card I made you:

Quick Question

Hey! I just have a quick question. How do you submit fanstuff? I searched it, but I just got a link to a page that didn't do anything. I don't know if you know or not, but I thought it was worth a shot. Tigerstripe 21:58, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

I really don't know, having never done so myself. I assume it's as simple as sending a picture of it in an email to TBC, but i really don't know. Phlip once got his thing featured, why not try asking him? — Defender1031*Talk 23:47, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
You could always just Email TBC. Loafing 23:55, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

irc problem

hey, dan. i got disconnected and when i try to go back in, it says my nick is in use and doesn't let me in. any way around this? or do i need to wait? HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 23:43, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

nevermind. i'm back in HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 23:45, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

my mentor...

I'm probably thinkin' you're my mentor and all. I could nominate you for sysop abilities, but keep up the good work. --The 386 My talk 20:11, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. — Defender1031*Talk 20:17, 11 November 2008 (UTC)


Hi DeFender1031, It's Mas12806. I was meaning to ask you, how do you make a redirect? I wasn't exactly comfortable asking an admin, and I needed to know how so I could keep the Wiki moving. And your welcome for the Brunswick Stew! Thanks! —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 02:34, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

You create a page with the content #REDIRECT [[Target Pagename]] — Defender1031*Talk 02:41, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

I knew that way, but when I tried that, it came out as this instead as a regular redirect:

  1. REDIRECT Homestar Runner

And a regular redirect page looks like this. Thanks! —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 03:00, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 03:00, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

What do you mean by a "regular redirect"? what kind of redirect do you want? — Defender1031*Talk 03:37, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Did you put a space between the "#" and the word "REDIRECT"? That would cause the redirect not to work. Homestar-Winner (talk) 03:39, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Note that when you preview a redirect page, that's how it'll look. When you actually submit, the MediaWiki software does its magic, and it turns into a proper redirect page. --Belthazar 03:49, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Now I understand everything. Thanks DeFender1031, Homestar-winner, and Belthazar. A new redirect I did: The Brothers Chaps Office. Thanks! —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 13:04, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Could you set me up with a Sig?

homsarstrongbad150 sent me to you if I wanted a sig and colourful username, could you tell me how to do it? ALJ123456

You may want to start here and here. — Defender1031*Talk 20:01, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

"then why did you delete this too?"

If you really want to know, it's because I'm using the Wii to edit again. (my Lappy's battery doesn't charge) BBG 02:28, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

DVD transcripts

I did the commentary transcripts for coloring and trading cards, but they probably weren't completely accurate. Can you take a look at them both, please, and fix them both if you can? Thanks. MHarrington 00:50, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

What makes you think that i have the DVDs? — Defender1031*Talk 01:01, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
I've seen your scripting for the keep cool, which is on the same DVD as the two emails I did, so I figured you might be able to help. MHarrington 01:05, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
Whoops. My mistake, it was The Pizz who had done the keep cool email. MHarrington 01:10, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Sandbox problems

I checked the sandbox it it was all weird. there were blue boxes and black boxes covering everything. Can you try to change it back?Luis123Luis123Luis123 02:36, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Apparently I'm Not Helping

I have recently been charged with not helping when I post on the wiki.

user boxs

you used when you discovered hrwiki twice

Thanks, but it's not. One is when i discovered the site itself, the other is when i discovered this wiki. — Defender1031*Talk 23:50, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Pi revert

concerning this edit
Can you please give me a reason why you think it is not a stretch? Homestar-Winner (talk) 11:59, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

They picked those numbers and dates. They have been known to stick in references to pi in subtle places. It stands to reason that they purposely picked these to reflect pi. — Defender1031*Talk 12:10, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Why come

okay, sorry, I didn't know about that page.

nothing to apologize for. — Defender1031*Talk 18:57, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
oh. well then i guess i made ur bottom ten

Bottom 10

I saw your bottom 10 and I am sorry. --Blow Up the Ocean 21:23, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Hahahahaha, it took me a second, i was about to write "for what?" when i realized.... — Defender1031*Talk 21:26, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
I was going to write your opinions are total crap, but I thought that wouldn't be nice. --Blow Up the Ocean 21:30, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
That is correct. That wouldn't be nice... But since you didn't actually say it, it makes it totally fine to say that you WOULD HAVE said it. — Defender1031*Talk 21:46, 20 January 2009 (UTC)


Hey man! Thanks for fixing my page along with It's Dot Com. I've been trying to do that ever since I signed up! With Lots of Crap, Record307 01:33, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Any time bro, glad i could help. — Defender1031*Talk 01:33, 21 January 2009 (UTC)


Hey, I've created a new template at Template:Talkheader. I was wondering if you were any good at Wiki code, because I'm having three issues with it. Once the box is finished, I'd like to customize it to the Homestar Runner Wiki. Also, if this is redundant, let me know. Son 16:35, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Hey there, i'm actually curious what all these templates you're creating are for. We tend not to create templates without extensive discussion. I get the talkheader one, but not the others. (Also, there's better ways to put headers on all pages of a namespace than templates, and such a thing is best left up to the site developers.) — Defender1031*Talk 16:36, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for tagging those. I wholesale copied the Talkheader template from Wikipedia. In the process, it had these other templates layered in it. In my tired idiocracy, I tried to build those as well. It was becoming hopelessly complicated. At that point, I at least moved them into my userspace, though it's probably a lot simpler to just delete those in the first place. I thought that perhaps a talkheader would be a nice improvement to the site. I probably should have put in a request some where. If that's the case, I'll keep that in mind for the future. Son 16:47, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, i can tag the remaining ones in your user space for deletion if you want. As for the talk page header, we already have something sort of like it, {{talk}}. It might be worth expanding and seeing if the devs want to have mediawiki automatically add it to the top of every talk page. I certainly would support the idea, your template makes it very clear what talk pages are for, and it might be good to have a short list of talk page rules there. I think i'll bring it up with the devs and get back to you on it. — Defender1031*Talk 16:52, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, that sounds good. I appreciate your help! Son 16:55, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Anytime. And let me officially welcome you to the wiki. I notice you joined over a year ago, but didn't do much at the time and never got properly welcomed.
Thank you! I appreciate your welcome to the Wiki! Son 17:05, 24 January 2009 (UTC)


I looked up what < tt > means... From Wikipedia: An HTML element for teletype or a monospace font family, e.g. monospace. I'm guessing it's something that standardizes fonts if people use different skins in their preferences.

Hope this was of interest to you. It was to me when I saw you wondered (what I'm sure was probably more rhetorical than less...), so I looked it up. Thought I'd spread the word! Son 18:36, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. It was unnecessary where it was anyway, also i think that these days it's been obsoleted in favor of more standardized css. — Defender1031*Talk 18:56, 24 January 2009 (UTC)


Hey dude, one question. You wouldn't mind if you could send me pages that need images, I'll be happy to supply one! I mean you don't have to do it every day but, just tell me pages that are in DIRE need of images. Asking for a favor, Record307 23:09, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Actually, you can see that yourself if you visit the Articles Needing Images category. --DorianGray 23:13, 24 January 2009 (UTC)


DUDE YOU ARE A SAVIOR! THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH. I FINALLY HAVE A SIG! Just one question... How to I use my sig?--Record307 Talk/Contribs 01:15, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Look in your preferences under "signature", and paste {{User:Record307/sig}} into the box. Make sure to check the little box for a raw signature. Cheers, MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 01:06, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
Did you follow my link at all? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 01:11, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah see Record307 Talk/Contribs 01:14, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Side note to it acceptable to use a signature icon of someone's who hasn't been active on the site in over a year? Son 05:06, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm afraid you'll have to be a bit more specific. — Defender1031*Talk 05:11, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
I saw a user who's been inactive since November 2007 (methinks) with a Steal Your Face. I left a note on the user's talk page, so you can check in my recent contributions to see it. I'd like to use it, if that's considered kosher. Son 05:22, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Cricket Helmet

Hi, I dunno if you saw it, but I was hoping you could clarify your answer on the image talk page. - 15:42, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

The recent block warning

I can't tell any change between the post you did and the way MichaelXX2 "fixed" it for you. Can you explain the difference, just for the sake of someone unfamiliar with wiki syntax? - 23:44, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Sure. when putting "subst:" before a template, it will replace, or SUBSTitute, the template call for the actual code contained therein. For example, if i have a template named "example" that contains "This is a sample template", if i were to write "{{example}}" somewhere, then when i go to edit the page, it'll still say "{{example}}" in that spot on the edit page. If i wrote "{{subst:example}}" instead, it would instead have "This is a sample template" written. Outwardly, the pages would look identical, only in the code does it matter. I hope that answers your question, cause i don't know how to make it any clearer. — Defender1031*Talk 23:51, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
That was clear, thanks a lot. - 23:55, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
What I don't get is why you reverted it, considering that using "subst" is Wiki policy. --Jaycemberween (Ho ho ho!) 23:54, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
Feel free to ask me privately. And i don't consider that instruction sheet to be "policy". — Defender1031*Talk 23:56, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
Actually, reverting it myself was my mistake. Looking back on it, you're not supposed to edit people's talk page posts unless they're breaking the page, contain foul language, or similar. --Jaycemberween (Ho ho ho!) 00:18, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank youuu

I saw that crappy and unfunny vandalism that somebody did on a certain page. Thanx for reverting it. THAT was just an eyesore. If somebody's gonna vandalize the least they can do is make irt clever and funny. --Sonicstar Runner 23:49, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

That's my job, defending the wiki, defending the policies of the wiki, defending my friends, defending my family, defending good programming practices... But i guess now i'm just rambling... Sooo.... yeah. Vandals: 0 DeFender: 1031 23:57, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

kinda funny...

Do the proximity of these three edits seem a little ironic to you..? -

I'm unsure of the connection you're trying to make... and by "unsure" i really mean "no freaking clue". — Defender1031*Talk 01:36, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
Just that you accused the edit summary of "No" of being vague. - 02:01, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
