Wow. You're fast, Thunderbird. I hadn't even finished setting my prefs, or made a single edit... But I've been lurking around here for a while, so I've got an idea of how things stand. The Wikipedia is my main home in the wikiverse, so I've got a little wiki experience, but not much, since I haven't been there for that long. Anyway, the username is my poor attempt at creating something remotely H*R related. Well, I guess I'll see if anyone figures it out, and then I'll know how well I succeeded. Anyway, I guess this means I'm here to stay, and hopefully do my part for the community! ^_~ -- LGC&CS 02:01, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
I know laser crabs were mentioned in These peoples try to fade me... --DorianGray
Hey there, Laser-Grilled Crab & Cheese Sandwich. Just a hunch but I'm going to say your name is referencing, first, the line in These peoples try to fade me "And your mother tried to show me all the laser crabs....", and second, the line in space program "Looks like he could use a grilled cheese sandwich." Happy to have you here on HRWiki. — Lapper (talk) 02:07, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
Yep, right on both accounts. Just what I'd expect from the people here on the HRWiki, where people like us are free to obsess a little over some fun flashwork. ^_^ Anyway, Coach Z is one of my favorite H*R characters, and the grilled cheese thing in space program really cracked me up for some reason. I like grilled cheese sandwiches, what else can I say? So I did a little wordplay, and came up with a goofy, excessively long username. But hey, the Wiki software doesn't care, so I figured I might as well. -- LGC&CS 03:16, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
Heh, you can join the ranks of other users with rather long usernames, such as Fhqwhgadshgnsdbkhsdabkfabkveybvf, The Homestrongzipansadcheatsmith and to a lesser extent, Some HSR themed username (The longest sysop name). In any case, welcome to the wiki. And yeah, I just popped in for a second on the wiki, and your username creation was the first thing on the Recent Changes list (an new enormous red username is hard to miss), so I figured I'd give you a quick obligatory welcome (all new users get 'em). ;) Thunderbird 03:20, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
It's nice to see a wikipedian come on over to the HRWiki. Welcome to the Team ^_~ --Dacheatbot · Communicate 03:49, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
Hmm.... I'm wondering if that ampersand was such a good idea... Turns out some links don't work properly, because of conversion of some characters. For example, [1] works, while [2] does not. The former is what clicking on "User contributions" in the toolbox produces while on my user page, whereas the latter is produced by clicking "ctrbs" from my watchlist. Yep, doing my job, finding nitchy little bugs just by doing things my way. Think I should find a bureaucrat/admin to rename me, or do they bother with that kind of thing around here? -- LGC&CS 04:54, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
If you want to change your name, you can put in a request at HRWiki:Changing username. --DorianGray
LGC&CS, I don't think that's your fault. The link should be ctrbs, with a %26 instead of a &. We'll have a look at it. -- Tom 05:08, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
All righty then. I guess changing the "&" to "and" in my username wouldn't really make it any easier to type, so if the links get fixed, then I guess there's no problem. And I suppose it resolves a bug now that might have otherwise raised its ugly head at a more inopportune time. BTW, thanks everyone for the nice welcome! I guess things are a little slower over here than at the Wikipedia, so I couldn't slip in unnoticed. ^_~ -- LGC&CS 05:51, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
