Hey there, LePorello. Welcome to our Wiki! I saw on your user page that you needed help making a signature. Go to this page to find out about all that stuff. Oh, and about pictures. Basically, all you have to do to put pictures on your page is to go to any page on the Wiki with a picture, click the edit tab, and copy and paste the image code onto your page. The image code should look something like this:

[[ThisIsACoolPicture.PNG|thumb|This is a cool caption.]]

Some will look different, though. I'm not really that good at explaining it. Ask anyone else at this Wiki for more help if you need it. Has Matt? (talk) 16:06, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

That's for images that are already on the wiki. If you want to add a couple of your own (and by the way, that's all that's allowed, two), see HRWiki:FAQ#How do I upload an image?. And hey, welcome to the double-threat wonder of Homestarrunner and this wiki! (I was a little disappointed to read your user page; I thought at first you might be a Mozart opera enthusiast; but props anyhow to anyone who uses the word "Leporello" in everyday conversation!) —AbdiViklas 17:04, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks! LePorello

By the way, I don't know if someone's mentioned this already, but one of the handiest editting tricks is that—if you're logged in—you can simply put three tildes (~~~) at the end of your comment on any talk page to leave your signature (it creates the same code you just used above). A fourth tilde will add the time and date (as I'm about to use), and a fifth will give just the time and date. And in general, it's nice to edit logged-in as yourself whenever possible, just so you're recognized. —AbdiViklas 17:12, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks to both of you! (By the way, I don't use "Leporello" in everyday conversation!) LePorello 17:28, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Just Stoppin' By!

Sup man? Just noticed that you were kind of new, so, I know you've already been formally welcomed, but I just wanted to stop in and say hi! Happy (oh, and check out your guestbook) teeeffoh! 21:33, 30 December 2005 (UTC)


Instead of using <b> and <i> tags , you can also just use apostraphies. doing '''''THIS''''' will come out as THIS, the same thing as the b and i tags. You can also change the number of apostraphies on each side to change the emphasis.




Hope that helps. Thunderbird 21:50, 30 December 2005 (UTC)


First of all, click on the button on the top of your screen that says "preferences". It's between "my talk" and "my watchlist" links. Then where it says "Nickname", type this in: {{User:LePorello/Sig}} and make sure that the little box underneath it, about "raw signatures" is checked. Make sure you press "save preferences" when you're done all that, then let me know when that's done. Thunderbird 22:29, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Go here. Whatever you make that page will show up as your signature. Let us know on the talk page there what you want your signature to be, and we'll help the best we can. Thunderbird 22:40, 30 December 2005 (UTC)


I found your easter eggs. From top to bottom: the i, the !, the ', the 3, the other ', the ?, and the other i. Yay!--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 22:52, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Congraturation! BTW, did you notice that the last "i" linked to you? LePorello 23:17, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

I made a minor fix on two of your easter eggs, to make them a bit harder to find. ;) Thunderbird 23:25, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

What minor fixes? I couldn't find the fixes (though the easter eggs were all still there). LePorello 23:29, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

It's kinda hard to explain. I did this. Basically I just made the underlines in the links solid by moving around the spaces a bit, to make the easter eggs a bit harder to see. Thunderbird 03:37, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Gotcha. Thanks for the sig! LePorello / T / C 13:40, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

I actually did noticethat the i linked to me. That was slightly more than minorly awesome.--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 17:51, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Update: There is now one more easter egg. Mu-hu-ha-ha. LePorello / T / C 21:02, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

I found it (it's a .)--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 22:15, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Stress Level

Can anyone find me a picture of the stress level indicator (the thermometer-like tube) with nothing in it? You know, just the tube and labels? LePorello / T / C 14:06, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

I don't think we have one of that. It only goes from "just fine" to "I quit/I need a vacation." teeeffoh! 20:59, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

OK. LePorello / T / C 21:02, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

It actually goes up to "Run for cover." I don't think I've seen one up that high, though...--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 22:16, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

KUL. LePorello / T / C 22:37, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

no, the thing has run for cover. but, how the heck do you even put images on a page? i don't get it. Seriously 21:28, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Homestar Quiz

That's a pretty cool quiz you got there! It's a lot harder than Bubsty's. I got 7 out of 10. By the way, did you actually count the number of clouds in level 6.1, or was it already on the page? Man, that question was hard! Well, anyway, see ya. Has Matt? (talk)22:51, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

I, believe it or not, counted the clouds in 6.1 (don't ask why). Hope I get more responses! LePorello / T / C 23:18, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Ooh! I like it! 9/10. — talk Bubsty edits 02:29, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

STUFF vote

Hey there: I just noticed that you've voted on the "Salad as a rock" item in STUFF to accept both the revision and the original. Therefore, I thought I'd let you know that you can actually only vote to accept one revision or the original (but you can vote to decline any number versions). You'll want to remove one of your votes or someone will do it for you (at least by the time this item closes). Keep on tranglin'! Heimstern Läufer 02:30, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

Done. Happy '06! LePorello / T / C 05:07, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

Foxtrot Referance, or am I just a rambling weirdo?

About your comment on Marth 99's guestbook; did you get that from the comic strip foxtrot? Or... am I just stupid and thats a popular sentance? Personally, I think Foxtrot is the greatest comic strip of all time next to Calvin And Hobbes. — talk Bubsty edits 03:50, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

I did and I agree completely. LePorello / T / C 22:21, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Woah! It's not often that you find a foxtrot fan. Most people just say "Foxtrot who?" — talk Bubsty edits 23:55, 4 January 2006 (UTC)


Please don't dig up the grave. :) Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 23:52, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Oh, now I understand. Has Matt? (talk) 23:54, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

You got it! LePorello / T / C 01:55, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

So, I couldn't find the second word. But based on the first I'm guessing it's "I doubt it. I drove." Heimstern Läufer 01:33, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Indeed. "Pellere" means "to drive" in Latin. You ARE awexome. (And I mean awexome!) LePorello / T / C 01:34, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Seriously. Homsar is the pride of the peaches. Has Matt? (talk) 13:32, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

As the quote says. Correct!LePorello / T / C 21:08, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Number 4: It's Homestar's quote from Potion-ma-jig: "Thanks. You win!" -Marth 99 18:13, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

It is! LePorello / T / C 13:10, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

"I'm a new man!" Coach Z, other days Did I get it? Has Matt? (talk) 19:55, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

In the quickest time yet. LePorello / T / C 19:56, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

"Dear oldie, Shut up! Your pal, Strong Bad." From Halloween Fairstival Has Matt? (talk) 23:37, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

Finally! LePorello / T / C 23:56, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

Here's a guess for the new one: "Where's the ghost?" from That A Ghost. Heimstern Läufer 01:34, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

And it is! LePorello / T / C 12:45, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

OK, I think this one is correct, here goes: "I'm doomed." -Strong Sad, Pumpakin Carve-nival Has Matt? (talk)

Nope. Good guess though. LePorello / T / C 00:16, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

SS isn't doomed. He's evil. different town -Marth 99 00:24, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Dingdingdingdingding! We have a winner, we have a winner! LePorello / T / C 00:25, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

This has gotta be a record. I too, am so glad The Cheat is not dead. -Marth 99 00:52, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Congratulations. You are tied for first with Has Matt? now. Now just cry out BOO-YAH! LePorello / T / C 21:23, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

How about this one, LePorello: I'm forever your girl? Maybe? --Nckinfn04 Talc! 23:52, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

"Now this is the thrill of a lifetime!" - Happy T Has Matt? (talk) 04:55, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Has Matt? got it. LePorello / T / C 20:01, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

How do you figure these quotes out? --Nckinfn04 Talc! 01:22, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

I'm having lots of trouble with the current Latin quote (like everyone else, apparently). All I'm coming up with is "And none of them lived" from Homestarloween Party. But that's probably not it. Heimstern Läufer 19:09, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

Is it "Don't touch that dial!!"? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 19:34, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

Not yet. Hint: Think of what "accommodant" could mean. LePorello / T / C 20:12, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

chat channel

The chat channel is an IRC Chat Channel... like a chatroom for wiki users. (I don't know too much about it; don't use it very often). On that bar at the left of the screen, below the words "external links" and below the link to fanstuff, there's a link to it. — talk Bubsty edits 01:04, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Gotcha. Good luck! LePorello / T / C 01:06, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

That said, bye LePorello, and may you always love Foxtrot! (I know I will...). — talk Bubsty edits 01:06, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

How to bring on? I haven't a clue.

How in teh world do u bring pictures onto the wiki from other places? LePorello / T / C 20:22, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Ya ya, Bubsty is everyones friend on the wiki(like me), but he isn't a freaken hero! I mean, Bubsty has done many great things. He is just quiting the hr wiki for a long period of time! It's not the end of homestar runner! So don't worry. You just have to wait. — hr.pngBubyman Lets chat January 14, 2006

To answer your question about pictures, have the thing you want on your screen. Press "print screen" (at the top right of the keyboard). Then, go to something like MS Paint and right click and click "paste". Crop it to what you'd want to upload to the wiki and save it. Then, go to the wiki. On the left, click "upload file". Make sure there isn't a picture with the same name by clicking "list of uploaded images" and searcning. Type something for a name that isn't taken under "destination filename", hit "browse", and go to where you saved it to, and click it. Give the picture a summary, then hit "upload file", then it's there. SaltyTalk! 21:27, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

It won't let me bring the picture on. It's the picture of the word "Homestar" on Main Page 4 (on Homestar's shirt). I want to add it to Fonts as the font "Brush Script MT" (I checked, it is that font). If someone could add it for me, that would be very helpful. LePorello / T / C 13:32, 16 January 2006 (UTC)


Can YOU find all of the eggs? Bluebry muffin 22:12, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Cool People

I don't know if you know already, but you have obtained status in my cool people list. Congratulations! -Marth 99 23:50, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

P.S. Do you like my new sig?

Yes to both! Thanks! LePorello / T / C 00:06, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

Totally Awexome

Thanks for putting me on your list of Totally Awexome People. I found my name under "Marzipan". -Marth 99 15:25, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Yeah. I picked 10 especially cool users, found a quote which could take 10 users, and alphabetized the usernames. So, you're welcome! LePorello / T / C 00:05, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

While I was out...

What kind of vandal was he? Did he use any expletives or did he simply blank pages? Did he attack user pages or just the Homestar pages? Please let me know. -Marth 99 18:34, 11 February 2006 (UTC) P.S. I can't believe I missed it! I would have helped you guys.


Thank you for the petunias! I like to talk with them in my mustard cage. AaAaAaAa!

He's just saying thakns for participating in my poll. Bluebry 21:07, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

Dude, there are actually three committees you can join. There's also the validation committee. You might want to change your welcome message a bit. Seriously (Talk) 13:47, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

LePorello, this is Thunderbird's project. You might want to ask him if you can do it first. And if you do, please do not do it one section at a time. It just creates a flood in Recent Changes. It would be best to do it all at once, or at least in large chunks. —BazookaJoe 22:25, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

OK. LePorello / T / C 22:30, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, bud. :) —BazookaJoe 22:32, 12 February 2006 (UTC)
Well since you're working on it now I'll just wait it out, let me know when you're done so I can finish up with a few minor tweaks. And as long as you're going along with Sketchbook and Weekly Fanstuff, could you do Quote of the Week at the same time? You do it the exact same way, just create the link INSIDE of the quotation marks. Thanks. Thunderbird 22:58, 12 February 2006 (UTC)
He's not working on it right now, according to this edit: [2]BazookaJoe 23:01, 12 February 2006 (UTC)
Oh great, I didn't notice that. Okay, I'm on it. NOBODY DO ANYTHING TO THE ARTICLE! (I'll stick an in progress template on there too, just in case) Thunderbird 23:02, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

An award!

Congrembolations, LePorello!

I hereby present you with the Old Timey Bandit Award for being the first to identify Fhqwhgads from his/her(?) full name. Good work, LePorello!--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 23:53, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Hey Cool

Yeah, that would be cool. Could you do that? Contact Nick (Nckinfn04) when your done. Thanks a lot, D|C|T|22 Talk! 00:41, 18 February 2006 (UTC)


I understand you were requesting my help with uploading. Describe to me the difficulties thou art having. SaltyTalk! 16:25, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm leaving for the weekend, so I won't be able to help you (until Monday at least). SaltyTalk! 17:19, 18 February 2006 (UTC)
Maybe the problem is that there's already an image with the same name as the one you are trying to upload. Did you check? SaltyTalk! 18:57, 20 February 2006 (UTC)


Dude, that's awesome. You should like do that for a living or something... Thanks a lot, D|C|T|22 Talk!

Fark sightings

I'm a longtime member of Fark, and I can tell you that aside from myths and legends, which didn't make the front page since 500 The Cheats did, just about every sbemail in recent history is there. Look through all the Mondays when they were released in the archive. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 17:07, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Nowadays, I have been. But I am going to keep doing this since I want to post the captions. (And also pop-up was on the Tuesday.) LePorello / T / C 17:10, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, man

Awesome! My very own a-The-Cheat-Bot! Thanks for the prize! -Marth 99 17:56, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
