Fourth Wall Breaks?

Hey Heimstern, I was just looking around the list of articles that need cleaning-up and I noticed that Fourth Wall Breaks is on there. When you look at its talk page, it says that it's a featured article. Just curious, but why is it a featured article if it's marked for cleanup? -TVK 06:17, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Well, the problems that need cleanup may have developed after the article was featured, or it may simply be that we noticed problems that we didn't notice at the time of the feature. Note that we aren't quite as strict about the quality of our featured articles as Wikipedia is, also. Heimstern Läufer 18:39, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Gotcha. I'm just used to 'kipedia I guess, but thanks for the update!

Sandbox thing

How do I at least get the CODE for my sandbox thing back after that guy got rid of it? Can you please help me? Acam30 04:46, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

You can find in this revision. Heimstern Läufer 04:47, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes, thank you. I figured it out. Acam30 04:48, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Incidentally, Heimstern's post there points out a useful feature. Namely, you don't have to keep reverting the sandbox to any particular revision (and getting worked up in the process) in order for GreenHelmet to see it. Just use the permanent link. — It's dot com 04:52, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

I should have known...

H*Bad was banned here, too. *wry smile* -- Alex H.

Yes, that's true. Heimstern Läufer 04:01, 5 September 2008 (UTC)


Marshie is saying "You can't destroy me!". I believe it's from the sbmail candy bar. Ivoj Nob(HAP-E*HOLIDAYS) 18:49, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Yes. Though that quote had already been translated previously. Still, good work. Heimstern Läufer 01:00, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

I speak German. What's that little German contest you got on your userpage? With the language I'm not the best at it, but I could probably live fine in Germany. Es war eine gute Idee sein, daß Homestar Runner in Deutsch als Ihren Benutzernamen. Danke! —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 03:46, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

I haven't done the German contest in a while. It was basically something where people guess what lines from toons I've written in German. Heimstern Läufer 07:37, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Oh I see. Thanks. Also Sie nicht tun ein jederzeit schnell wieder? —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 22:55, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Complaint from Homsarstrongbad150

i already told you peoples why i edited my page is because i thought i never got a reply that mike sent and he was clearly online because i saw him edit a page. most people check their e-mail daily. technically, you're not it's dot com, so you weren't asked to not block me, but i had a good reason this time. on top of that, it is my page, so why should i not be able to edit it. someone get Q over here. he'll agree that thinking the email was missing somewhere in the internet is a good enough reason to post there. and it is MY page. i should be able to use it. get Q over here. he'll agree. we're buds. he's on my cool users list. y'know what? i'm going to get Q, and i'm going to see what joeyday thinks of you. yeah, that's right. i'm going to the top, asking the big man. this was one edit, do you get it? i think i never got the reply to my email, so i asked, and now i can't use my own talk page for 2 days. so i did try not to post there. i had a legit reason to this time. that was a good question.

"thanks a lot", says HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:11, 19 October 2008 (UTC) sarcastically and angrily

I know perfectly well that you've told us why you edited your talk page. Your reason was not acceptable. The fact that you are having email problems or that Michael did not reply as quickly as you thought he should have does not mean we have to let you use HRWiki as a messaging service. As for your assertion that it's your talk page, you are entirely mistaken. Your talk page does not belong to you, it belongs to the entire wiki, and therefore it's subject to all the wiki's guidelines and policies. Your use of your talkpage is a privilege, and, since you abused that privilege, it was revoked. Call for Qermaq, JoeyDay, Tom, whoever to look over my edits and admin actions as much as you want; I believe they stand on their own and that most users will completely understand. You, by contrast, have taken actions that have gotten you blocked for a week. And did you notice that no one is defending you? That should cause you to think that just maybe you might be in the wrong, and not me, Phlip, Dot com and others who've warned and taken administrative action against you. Please realize also that if you return to this behaviour after your block is over, you can expect to be blocked again for longer (possibly indefinitely). Heimstern Läufer 06:24, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Hate to break it to you, Homsarstrongbad150, but Heimi is 100% in the good here. You were not requested to avoid chat on your user talk if it was convenient - you were told absolutely that a consequence was awaiting further misuse of the talk, and when that happened you got that consequence. There's really no wiggle room here. Specific behavior was expected of you, and you didn't demonstrate it. Hopefully in the next days you can cool off a little and come back prepared to follow the standards, policies and guidelines we all share here in order to make it pleasant for all the users.

Just wondering...

Is referring to someone "n00b" considered flaming? I've been careful to restrain myself, but I was just curious. Something tells me it's not a good idea. ~That Guy Over There (User talk:That Guy Over There) 04:27, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

I was just going down my user talk page recently and discovered that I left this question unanswered. Sorry about that, I forgot; didn't mean to ignore you or anything. Anyway, I'm not sure "n00b" is always flaming, but it's pretty much never a nice word, so I would advise against using it. "Newbie" can be a nice alternative sometimes, incidentally. Heimstern Läufer 11:13, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
I actually prefer avoiding calling attention to it altogether - just say "I know this is new for you" or "It's clear you are like me when I first edited a wiki" or something. Particularly with a 'newbie', one should avoid language that might exclude and might telegraph their possible inferiority. They probably feel like an outsider, and the goal is to make them feel like they are welcome to edit as much as any insider. The language we use should reflect that. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 13:09, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Just for clarification, I have never referred to anyone as "n00b" on the wiki. I'm a good boy. ~That Guy Over There (User talk:That Guy Over There) 15:33, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Heimy vs. Heimi?

I never knew it was "Heimi" instead of "Heimy"? Weird. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:24, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

YES IT IS HEIMI. NO IT IS NOT HEIMY. THANK YOU. xD I prefer to call him Heimi. Acam30 04:22, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Umm, yay shouting? And the reason it's "Heimi" is that it's a German name, and therefore follows the German practice of having "i" instead of "y" (which is largely a foreign character in that language). Heimstern Läufer 04:35, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Mkay. That's all I wanted to hear. Thank you. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:06, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Signature Phase

  • Me again, Heimstern! And since I'm at your talk page, I was kind of wondering about replacing my old user shortcut with a signature just to make it look cöoler. Sorry about the "ö" in cooler. So until then, keep up the good work. -Umläut76 14:01, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
You could check Help:Signature; that would probably have more info than I could give you. Heimstern Läufer 08:40, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Ökäy. - Umläut76

User Subpages

We should at least be able to make user subpages like fake tv shows or fake tracks, and stuff. Opinion? Raiku 03:13, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

No thanks; just wait for the Fanstuff to be back. Heimstern Läufer 07:34, 30 November 2008 (UTC)


I am having trouble changing the logo on my monobook. Raiku 07:36, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm afraid I don't really know much about that. There's something about it here, if that helps. Heimstern Läufer 07:54, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

German Contest

Are you going to be doing another German Contest, I can speak quite a bit of German, for example:

Hallo! Ich heisse Alex! Ich habe am 24 Februar Geburtstag. Ich komme aus Newcastle Upon Tyne. Ich spiele fussball, weil es prima findet, aber ich spiele Schlagzeug, das ist fantastich! Ich habe keine Haustiere, aber ich hatte gern einen hund.

I couldn't get umlauts and please forgive me if my spelling sucks.

(ALJ123456 17:02, 9 December 2008 (UTC))

It's not too bad, really! Viel Spaß beim Wikiing! Heimstern Läufer 04:10, 22 December 2008 (UTC)


HI! Thanks for being so welcoming! I showed the translation of the names to my friend who is also taking german, and likes HR, and she wants to know if there is a transaltion for Sterrance? Thanks! -Stark Traurig

I don't think there would be, no. It seems like it's basically just a proper name that wouldn't be translatable (like Bubs). Incidentally, instead of typing out your username, you can write four tildes (like this: ~~~~) and it'll add your name and a link to your userpage. Hope that helps! Heimstern Läufer 01:29, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

What the...

Why did you revert this image? I liked the newer version a lot better. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 01:24, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

I reverted it because you shouldn't have overwritten an existing image with a completely different image, since some people may still want to use the old image. If you want to use the new image, upload it under a completely separate filename. Notice also that Bad Bad Guy is currently using that image on his userpage. By re-uploading that image, you effectively changed his userpage, which I don't think I need to tell you isn't acceptable. Heimstern Läufer 01:28, 22 December 2008 (UTC)


Sylar admitted it on IRC that Accel is a fake. So there. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 05:57, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Please see my comments on your talk. Heimstern Läufer 06:01, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

double post

Sorry about that, not sure how it happened. —Guard Duck talk 05:38, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Usually when that happens, it means you hit save a couple times and thus the system registered your post twice. It's especially common if the page takes a long time to load after hitting save: you're like "what's taking so long?" and you hit save again, but actually it already got it the first time, and hitting save again causes a double post. I dunno if that's what happened here. In any case, it's no big deal, as it was easy to revert to one post. Heimstern Läufer 05:41, 6 January 2009 (UTC)


Hey thanks for blocking that Ren Guy. Me and MichealXX2 kept reverting his vandalism till a sysop like you came! Thanks again!-Record307 Talk/Contribs 01:47, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

No problem. This sort of thing happens sometime (like that one time in '06 when Lapper and I kept reverting an annoying vandal all night after all the sysops went to bed). Keep it up. Heimstern Läufer 02:02, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Thinking of yooou...

Today I saw some kid wearing a sweatshirt that said "HEMI". Like the car or whuteva. And unconciously I think my mind said "HEIMI!!!" really loud and with extra exclamation points. LOL, i felt I just had to share that. xD Acam30 03:46, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
