Personal image

Hey there, GuardDuck. Welcome to the wiki! Regarding your personal image, if you're using it, and no one else is, then it's yours, regardless of who actually uploaded it. I need to speak to you, however, about the image you're currently using. The problem is that it's not a free image. The Pearls Before Swine website offers access to strips for about a month after they're released, but after that, you have to pay to see the archives. What this means is that we can't allow the image on our site, as it is definitely not fair use. Sorry. Perhaps there is something else you could use to illustrate your page, but, unfortunately, I'm going to have to delete that image soon. Keep on tranglin', and, again, welcome! — It's dot com 02:35, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

I see, thanks for explaining, and thanks for the welcome. One thing though, I didn't find the image on the Pearls Before Swine website, I found it on a blog I sometimes read. Does this mean it's still illegal? —Guard Duck talk 03:17, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
I'm not a lawyer, but my guess is that either (a) the blog has a legitimate claim to fair use or (b) the blog is using the image illegally. Either way, fair use can't be extended to this site, as we are a wiki about Homestar Runner, not Pearls Before Swine. Hope that helps. — It's dot com 03:32, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
It does. Thanks for your help! —Guard Duck talk 03:35, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Using Show Preview

Hello GuardDuck, I see that you have made several consecutive edits to the same page. I want to point out the Show Preview button. It's right next to the Save Page button when you edit. You should use it whenever you are making a lot of experimental edits, for example when you are trying to get formatting right. Using the Show Preview button is quicker and easier than saving and clicking "edit" again, and will keep recent changes and page histories from being flooded. Thanks, The Goblin!! 23:37, 24 October 2007 (UTC) P.S. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, see this. The Goblin!! 23:37, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Thank you. The reason I didn't use the show preview button on that was because each time I had fixed it, I thought for sure that it was right, meaning I didn't bother to use it. I can see now that it does come in handy. —Guard Duck talk 00:12, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Quack! --Bill Hart from North Carolina 21:42, 5 November 2007 (UTC)


Hey! Thanks for the Haiku! And yeah I do wonder about the last Stinkoman Level (er didn't you mean 10?), but with the Halloween Costumes thingy there's a bit of hope. Maybe. Anyway, nice to meet you! Please say hi to Bubsty for me will ya? Later! --Stux 06:53, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks! I will. Oh, and speaking of Haikus, I was wondering... should we have a page on them? I've looked and I can't find one, or one on poems, both of which have appeared quite a few times. I'm not sure if they should, or if for some reason you guys decided to never make one... —Guard Duck talk 01:35, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Oh! Um... that's more of a ... Fan Stuff type thing I'd say. That or a forum thing. Granted, it may be interesting to have such a compilation on a small scale as a wiki project, I know that it wouldn't be a priority, or might balloon to exceeding proportions (as things here sometimes tend to do), thus relegating it to a fanstuff project. That's kinda why is stays as a user space kind of thing. That said, however, there's no reason you or any one of us users can't make a subpage that's a compilation of all the HRWikizens' HR-related poetry. I think. --Stux 02:08, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Oops, sorry for being unclear. What I meant to say was, a page documenting the actual haikus on the Homestarrunner website. Such as "So cool an email, I thought you would enjoy it! Ding dong dear Strong Bad." Those guys. I've noticed quite a few of them. —Guard Duck talk 02:24, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Ohhhhhhh! I see what you mean! Nevermind my senseless diatribe into the user space then. I did a quick google search on the word Haiku and I saw a couple of possibly relevant hits (Halloween Fairstival, japanese cartoon, Talk:Strong Sad's Lament and Foreign Words). I assume you know of more examples than that? Perhaps this may be enough content for a brand spanking new Haiku page? --Stux 03:35, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Well, I decided to be bold and Create it. Thank you for your help in finding them! —Guard Duck talk 03:55, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
