Trivia

Hey Slipknot. About you trivia question on your user page, do you want another user to answer it? And if you do, what do you mean by the "longest sbemail"? Do you mean the longest running time, or the longest sent email in size, or what? Homestar-Winner (talk) 13:56, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Longest email: retirement. =) — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 19:34, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
Would the longest email in length be underlings? Homestar-Winner (talk) 03:05, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

that is the 2'nd biggest. heres a hint "too long clancey, to long!"

No no, not no more. I think underlings is longer. See here. Homestar-Winner (talk) 12:58, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

ok that one doesnt count.

Uhh, what does that mean? Does that mean that I didn't get the question right? Homestar-Winner (talk) 14:01, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
Or do you mean that the email underlings doesn't coun't. In which case I think the answer would be long pants. Homestar-Winner (talk) 14:11, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

because i thought the answer was long pants so i didnt know what the answer was. you get the you tricked the guy who wrote the question award.

Chris Kantus is the person with no life you're looking for. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 20:13, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
anything is the SBEmail where Homestar makes a "wet computer out of Strong Bad's computer" --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 17:47, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

that was short. Slipknot6477 17:49, 30 July 2007 (UTC) im not gonna put up another question until time.

Erm...

Hey there Slipknot. I saw what you asked me on my talk page, but I am not entirely sure what you meant (as I said here). Could you please explain to me what you meant? Homestar-Winner (talk) 19:50, 10 July 2007 (UTC) Oh, and thanks for the userbox.

you did win. the userbox should have said this user oursmarted slipknot6477. in fact, i will get started on that right now.

Hi, Slipknot. I posted over on HW's talk but thought I'd leave a note for you here. This is regarding the old version of Who Said What Now? See, I can't provide all the information I wish I could, but the fact is this wiki is in a position to not make any big mention of that old version of the game. This is per a request by the Chapman family which, as I hope you'll understand, we'd be pretty dumb to ignore. So I'm just asking if you could not request that image be linked anywhere, and probably even not mention it on the wiki at all. Please trust me that this is for the greater good of TBC and this wiki. Clear? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:01, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

no not really. Slipknot6477 (Talk | contribs) 12:32, 11 July 2007 (UTC) (left unsigned)

I'd be happy to clarify what I can. Did you have a specific question? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:48, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

why cant we talk about it? Slipknot6477 16:41, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Because of legal and copyright reasons. If you read the talk page of Who Said What Now? carefully, you can work out why. – The Chort 16:46, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Signature

You should start signing your posts on talk pages so it will be easier to tell who posted your comments:

When signing talk posts, you usually should sign it with the four tildes, like I'm about to do:
Homestar-Winner (talk) 13:15, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

  • ok, but how do you get it in color? Slipknot6477 17:23, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
Create a signature. You can customize your signature any way you want. As long as it fits the rules. For more help visit Help:Signature. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 17:36, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

[[User:Slipknot6477|<span style="font-family:font; color:633>Slipknot6477</span>[[Image:Sbemail158.png|20px]]]] 19:17, 11 July 2007 (UTC). ya, that seems complicated.

Slipknot6477: I think this is what you're trying to do. To generate this:
Slipknot6477
put the following code at User:Slipknot6477/sig:
[[User:Slipknot6477|<span style="font-family:font; color:#633">Slipknot6477</span>]][[Image:sbemail158.png|28px]]
Hope that helps, Trey56 15:55, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

ur jokeing right? that is it? im such a dummy dummy. [[User:Username|<span style="font-family:font; color:#003;">slipknot6477</span>]] 16:21, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

ok. that still doesnt work.

Okay, it looks like you need to...
  1. Go to Special:Preferences
  2. Copy {{User:Slipknot6477/sig}} into the "Signature:" line
  3. Make sure that the "Raw signatures (without automatic link)" box is checked
  4. Click "Save"
That should fix you up. Trey56 16:26, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

raw signatures?

Yes, it should be right underneath the "Signature:" box at Special:Preferences. Trey56 16:29, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
  1. REDIRECT Special:Mypage/sig 16:31, 12 July 2007 (UTC) i dont think it is working
You're almost there, but you put {{User:Username/sig}} in the "Signature:" line instead of {{User:Slipknot6477/sig}}. Trey56 16:33, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

?????

Go to Special:Preferences, delete whatever is on the "Signature:" line, and replace it with this exact text:
{{User:Slipknot6477/sig}}
Trey56 16:41, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Slipknot6477 16:42, 12 July 2007 (UTC) yes!!! ok. u can go back to doing what ever you were doing.

Excellent — I'm glad it worked out for you. Trey56 16:43, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Who Said What Now?

Hello, Slipknot6477. Recently, I've noticed you have been asking several questions to do with Who Said What Now? Well, the thing is, we cannot discuss the game at this time due to legal reasons and copyright issues. We have been asked by Karen Wagner, the official Vice President of Operations for the Homestar Runner store, to lock the pages in question until the dust clears. The reason why we have done so is actually pretty straightforward if you read the talk page of Who Said What Now? carefully and fit all the pieces together yourself. Nevertheless, we have decided to respect The Brothers Chaps' requests and therefore we can't explain everything yet. When the time is right, we will do so, but not at this time. We don't want to make things even more difficult than they currently are by discussing the subject any further. Thanks for your cooperation. – The Chort 17:14, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

is that why why come only one girl? is locked? Slipknot6477 18:52, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Yes. Thank you for understanding this matter. – The Chort 19:14, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Question

Is the email autobiography?--Kanjiro talk 18:17, 3 August 2007 (UTC) srry i didnt get to this. ya it is. Slipknot6477 14:38, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

Signature Standards

Hey there Slippy. While I do find your signature images funny, I'm afraid that they might not be up to HRWiki standard. Here's a quote from the standards page:

Preferably a signature would include no more than one image. If you add your own image, it counts as one of your personal images. Images that are distracting are not allowed. Likewise, animated images are strongly discouraged.

Your signature's animated images are very distracting at times. For this reason I say that it violates the standard. Please do something about this. Thanks, — Defender1031*Talk 17:45, 3 August 2007 (UTC) give me sone time. (unsinged)

Welcoming

Hi, Slipknot. First Time Here? wasn't down. Rather, those user talk pages were deleted because the accounts were indefinitely blocked vandal accounts. In the future, if you see that someone hasn't gotten links from First Time Here?, check the deletion log to see if the page has been deleted. Thanks. Heimstern Läufer 14:12, 5 August 2007 (UTC) I figured that out when qermaq sent the pages for speedy deletion. Slipknot6477 14:35, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

Re: little question

Hey there, Slipknot. About your question and why it was reverted, see HRWiki:Talk page etiquette#User talk. (I wish I could answer it, but then I'd get reverted too). If you have any other little questions or just want to chat, we have a chat channel for that. You can find me there, or you could research it yourself (there's always Wikipedia). Sorry you had to get reverted. — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 20:12, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

Answer

Hi, I'm Sam Fisher's friend, Elkmiester. The answer to your question is to add theyCallHimFlipper.swf to a homestarrunner page. |\|/[_}-Elkmiester-{_]\|/| 17:25, 29 August 2007 (UTC) finally! thats right! Slipknot6477 12:15, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

So what do I win?:p Oh BTW, in your user box where it says you discovered the wiki in 2007, you can change it so that instead of 200X it says 2007 by going to your edit page and finding that little bugger. |\|/[_}-Elkmiester-{_]\|/| im not much of a wiki user now, so just go 2 my page and at the bottom it will have a userbox. thats your prize. Slipknot6477 12:54, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Sig too big.

Hey Slipknot. I was reading some talk pages, and i found out that your signature is way tobig. It has to be able to fit into
this box.

Here is your's:

As you can see, it does not fit. This is against HRWiki:Signature. Please fix this. Thanks! The Goblin!! 01:00, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

fix'd! Slipknot6477 01:34, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, it's still a little bit to big. The Goblin!! 02:30, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
No. King of wikis 02:31, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Depends on your resolution. It's still too big for me. The Goblin!! 02:48, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
It's not too big on 1024x768. What's your res? --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 02:56, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Not too big on 1680x1050 either. —Guard Duck talk 03:14, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Not on mine. King of wikis 03:15, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
You already established that. But I'm on 1024x768. Oh well, if it works for everybody else... The Goblin!! 03:38, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

it fits in the box. its fine. Slipknot6477 12:33, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Your story

Could you cameo me? Unless no one would get it and thing you just misspelled Homestar Runner. Homestar-Winner (talk) 22:25, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

I don't really know the nature of this story you're writing, but as long as it doesn't harm anything, I give you permission to include my username in your story. Has Matt? (talk) 22:36, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

im gonna wait a day to see who else wants to- any groups or so. Slipknot6477

this message will be played over and over again to get people recruiting and will stop tomorrow night. Slipknot6477 00:58, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

also, i will want sam fishers permission for a little ending about his userbox saying "i ate the irc channel for breakfast" Slipknot6477 01:25, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

this message will be played over and over again to get people recruiting and will stop tonight. Slipknot6477 12:23, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

last warning for people who wants to be in my story. Slipknot6477 23:12, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

alright, cameos are now closed. time to write the story. Slipknot6477 23:19, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

broken copy, paste, and slash

ok, first of all, i noticed i can not copy and paste on any text fields and serch engines. i also noticed if i try to type the forward slash, a quick find opens up. i have a feeling something went wrong. Slipknot6477 12:34, 26 October 2007 (UTC) its fixed! see??? /////////////. Slipknot6477 13:01, 26 October 2007 (UTC) well, i still can't paste...... Slipknot6477 13:02, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

I moved this here since it doesn't really have anything to do with the wiki. I'm sorry to hear about your problem. You might try restarting your computer. If that doesn't work, the forum has a help desk, and maybe they could give you some better answers. Hope that helps! — It's dot com 13:05, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

no prob, it, it... it fixed somehow... ~~

Usetbox

A couple of things:

a) why is it called usetbox? You seem to have intentionally done that as you linked it with that name on your user page
b) subpages for userboxes are supposed to be used when embedding the subpage on your user page. You shouldn't just make a link to the page from your user page
We clear? Now gimme five, Homestar-Winner (talk) 02:57, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

ok, the thing about #a is that it was a typo, but it works. as for #b, i kinda got the idea from jhonny jupiter, and i have absolutely no knowledge of embed. Slipknot6477 03:00, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Oh, I noticed that the "R" key is right next to the "T" key. I guess you can keep it that way, but if you would ever like to embed it, you just paste {{User:Slipknot6477/usetbox}} on your user page. See ya, Homestar-Winner (talk) 03:03, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

screenshot

ok, i was wondering how you take a screenshot. i found something i need to take a screenshot of(for an incomplete list)so i would like to know. Slipknot6477 13:30, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Go to the toon you want the screenshot from. And at the right moment you want the picture, press the "Print Screen" button. From here, use MS Paint to adjust how you want your picture like. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 13:32, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

thanks. just to tell you, im taking a screenshot of atari marzipan. Slipknot6477 13:33, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

ok, i pressed the print button, and what do i do when the printing options come up?Slipknot6477 13:36, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Oh no. Not the "Print" Button. Look at the top right of your keyboard. There's a button called "Print Screen". Press that and do the rest of the options I told you. Thanks, User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 13:43, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

when i press the button, nothing happens. Slipknot6477 13:46, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Oh. Something does happen. Go to MS Paint and select "Paste". You see the picture you took with "Print Screen". Take it from there. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 13:47, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

do i have to download ms paint, because i cant find it on my desktop. Slipknot6477 13:51, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

No. Click on "All Programs" on the "start" button on the lower left corner of your screen. Go under "Accessories" and find MS Paint. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 13:54, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

wow, erasing all but atari marzipan from main page 13 is going to take a while. im going to be preoccupied for now, so hopes to find out about upload log! oh, and ur gonna get an iorn cup. Slipknot6477 14:02, 3 November 2007 (UTC) there must be a faster way to do this. is there, because, i would want to upload this soon. Slipknot6477 14:07, 3 November 2007 (UTC) found a faster way. now, how the heck do i use the upload log? Slipknot6477 14:11, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

please tell me how to upload images. Slipknot6477 14:23, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

In the toolbox on your left there, you'll see a link, Upload file. Under licensing, choose what best fits it. The rest is purdy easy. DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra 14:32, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

it says the file is to big. Slipknot6477 15:24, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Ignore that warning. Some PNG guy can dramatically shrink the file size. DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra 15:34, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

i mean it wont upload it. Slipknot6477 15:46, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

If you come into chat.hrwiki.org, I'll help you get your upload done, if you haven't gotten it all figured out yet. OptimisticFool 01:50, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

please dont make me go there again!!! Slipknot6477 01:53, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Only if you want my help.. I can't stand to see a talk page get so crazy long with a bunch of one-line messages. Besides that it would take almost as long as trying to help you via e-mail. OptimisticFool 01:56, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

i will try that website again-last time i was left clueless. Slipknot6477 01:59, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Re:Vandalism

Hi, Slipknot6477. In a couple of recent edit summaries, you've said you were removing vandalism from an article; however, what you removed was not vandalism. Vandalism is deliberately defacing the wiki, and it's a pretty serious thing to say someone's vandalized a page. In the future, only use the word vandalism if it's clear the user is trying make the page worse with his or her edit. Thanks. Heimstern Läufer 22:45, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Article Cleanup

Hey there, Slipknot! Came to thank you for all the work you've been doing on HRWiki:Article Cleanup. I should get back to that project now, too! ;) — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 15:25, 4 November 2007 (UTC) no problem! would like 2 see u get more than me! ive only been on it 4 about a day! Slipknot6477 15:44, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

november sig contest 2007!!!

welcome to the 1st super semi-annual signature contest! our contestants will show off their signature, and the judge will... judge them. just sign your sig, and you are entered in the contest! after 3 days, the winner would be chosen! amount of points is based off of color, image, links, and creativity! good luck! Slipknot6477 01:50, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, it's not november anymore, but is this contest still open? DAGRON 16:18, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
no, nobody went in it. maybe another month. Slipknot6477 21:31, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Welcoming

I'd like to point your attention to the discussion here. — Defender1031*Talk 01:30, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Talk:rediculous

Please don't give orders again. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 18:19, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

I wasn't trying to sound bossy, i was just saying it seems like nobody argues with deletion, so somebody should delete it unless nobody argues. sorry if i sounded bossy. Slipknot6477 18:22, 8 December 2007 (UTC)
It's OK as long as you don't do it again. Saying you think it's ready to be deleted now is OK, by the way, just refrain from saying stuff like "time for deletion", which makes it sound like you're telling people what to do. Sam, please follow your own advice. Thank you. Heimstern Läufer 18:27, 8 December 2007 (UTC)
What do you mean by "following my own advice"? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 18:29, 8 December 2007 (UTC)
Not giving orders. Like how you just gave Slipknot an order. Don't do it again. Heimstern Läufer 19:05, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Signature

You seem to have forgotten the length policy for signatures. It must fit in this box, remember?

The Goblin!! 03:18, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

it might be one of those times where legnth is uncontrollable. it is barely sticking out. an example would be bkmlb's sig. Slipknot6477 13:09, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
I doubt it, as it is 6 letters out of the box, more than a little of that uncontrollableness. The Goblin!! 14:59, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Its only 1 1/2 letters out for me. and i bet on trey56's browser, its just fine.Slipknot6477 23:37, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Duplicate image

Hey there Slipknot. I can't seem to find the image that is the duplicate of Image:CalebRentplayerBackground.JPG. I know that Image:Labeled CRP Background.PNG exists, but I don't think that counts as a duplicate. Is there something else? —BazookaJoe 18:39, 19 December 2007 (UTC) nope. its that. if thats not what makes it need to be deleted, then keep it up. Slipknot6477 22:43, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
