How do I join the welcoming committee

I want to help out on this site, and I saw you on the list for the committee, so I wanted to ask you how I can join. I put my name on the list by using the edit button, does that mean that I'm on the commitee?--Thecheat1234 23:16, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Yes! If you see somebody new, feel free to welcome them in the same manner It's dot com welcomed you. —BazookaJoe 23:27, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)
  • I find out where all the new users are on Recent Changes, right?--Thecheat1234 00:30, 28 Jul 2005 (UTC)
That is correct, TC1234. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 01:54, 28 Jul 2005 (UTC)


How do I create an online signiture? Besides this:Ampi? -Ampi

Hi there, Ampi. I typed out some instructions your talk page. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 01:54, 28 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Ever time i do my sig it comes out as:[[User:djm1791|DJM1791 · (Sup | Stuff I Did!)]] 05:09, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC) can you help?

Some HSR themed username has already answered your question on your talk page. Simply check "Raw signatures (without automatic link)" under preferences. Happy "signaturing"! —THE PAPER PREEEOW 05:40, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)

DVD images

Thank you, The Paper. Nothing quite spruces up a DVD page like your images. —BazookaJoe 16:19, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Hey thanks. That is quite a complement, coming from you. You do a great job with the weekly fanstuff and sketchbook. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 16:29, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Store Images

Sorry about the images I uploaded earlier. I got about halfway through when I realized the quality was terrible. I just finished editing them and was about to upload the new versions when I got your message. I sort of stumbled upon Homestar Coder's Store mockup and thought I'd finish it up. I've got it all finished, but I wanted to upload the pictures before I put the new store version up. -- mibluvr13dígame 17:26, 6 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Homestar's Shades

I saw that you made a bigger version of the picture on Homestar's Shades. The picture of Homestar on Main Page 3 did not have his glasses on. I already fixed it. -Lotionman 05:45, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)Lotionman

Thank you for fixing it! It is really funny, really. I got so caught up in making sure the image was PNG optimized that I forgot that Homestar wasn't even wearing his sunglasses in the bottom right corner. However, when you replaced it, the image seemed to be slightly blurred and the file size doubled. I have uploaded a replacement which is nearly identical to yours, except it is clearer and takes up 50% less space. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 14:55, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Item vs. Character

To the Paper- Hi! I'm new so, can I have some help. You are part of the welcoming commitee, so I went to you. Also, The Paper is my favorite character. Why is he listed as an item instead of a character? - User:Tompkins

Hi Tompkins. I'll give you an official welcome message on your talk page shortly. In the mean time, I will address your question: The main reason why The Paper is listed as an item instead of a character is because it has no speaking lines other than its sound effect "preeeeow" and the "Email Strong Bad" message. Also, The Paper does not interact with any characters other than Strong Bad. The Brothers Chaps said the following at the end of the animal DVD commentary:
MATT: ...Over the years, The Paper definitely has become more and more of a—
MIKE: A character.
MATT: It should have been on that big characters poster we made, I think.
MIKE: Yeah. It definitely has a personality.

Nevertheless, most users on the wiki would still agree that The Paper is not a character. But personally I am still open to the idea. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 22:39, 20 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Nice Jorb

Hey, nice job on your user page. You made it well. Keep up the good work! --Martin925 04:47, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Thanks, Martin! I appreciate the complement. I also look foward to working with you on the wiki. See you around. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 04:59, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I Noticed

Hi there The Paper. I noticed. -- Tom 17:51, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Trust you to notice. icon_mrgreen.gif Thanks! —THE PAPER PREEEOW 21:35, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)

The Paper Sighting

Just read what Tom is reading there. Thought of you the second I laid my eyes on it. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 14:38, 14 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Good find. It's funny when common things are labeled like that. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 15:57, 14 Sep 2005 (UTC)


The reason I had [[Image:wiki_tick]] instead of {{tick}} was because that was before the template was made. Otherwise I wouldv'e made it a template. :-) – Pertmywert (Talk·Edits) 23:04, 16 Sep 2005 (UTC)

But of course. And as I understand it, JoeyDay changed the checkmark/tick icon from Green to Red. Guess it's just a matter of color preference. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 23:11, 16 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I like the red one. Image:Wiki_tick.pngPertmywert (Talk·Edits) 23:18, 16 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Flash cartoon redirect

Noice work, Clanky. We took care of them all. Good prize. —BazookaJoe 04:58, 17 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Um, I don't think you got them all. I'm going to have GrapeNuts take care of the rest of these. Is this project listed anywhere, or did you two talk about this in chat or something? I was trying to find another place to note that I was helping, but I can't find this mentioned anywhere else. Thanks. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 19:34, 17 Sep 2005 (UTC)
No, I didn't want to touch any redirects that users made on talk pages. I'm okay with letting them stay as redirects. It was just a little unspoken project that I started, and The Paper followed through on, just on certain namespaces. But, it's okay to use GrapeNuts. I just had a quick change of mind. —BazookaJoe 19:38, 17 Sep 2005 (UTC)
The redirect links aren't just in talk namespaces (e.g. they are in the HRWiki namespace). I'll start with just those, and if there's really enough consensus here I don't see why we shouldn't change user and talk pages as well. EDIT: Heh, in fact, there was a very relevant bad link on the Projects page. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 19:49, 17 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Nice. —BazookaJoe 19:55, 17 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Okay, the ones in the HRWiki namespace are done, and I also did one in the main namespace. Should I start on the User, User talk, and Talk namespaces? — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 20:01, 17 Sep 2005 (UTC)


Hi The Paper! The image for geddup noise has an unwanted black border around it. I tried to upload a better version, cropping off the black border, but I realised the image was protected. Seeing as your online, can you please re-upload the image without the black border, or temporarily unprotect it so I can upload the better version? Thanks, «Rob» 12:41, 26 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I've been meaning to upload a new one. I was sidetracked on another wiki project. Thanks for keeping me aware of this issue. There should a cropped version uploaded now. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 12:49, 26 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Different Cursors

What kinds of different cursors are there? Besides the Arrow, Finger, and Crosshair? TotalSpaceshipGirl3

What the? Why did I post that on your user page? :S TotalSpaceshipGirl3

There are several. You can find a complete listing in the W3C spec. -- Tom 23:23, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)


Hi paper. Just thougt you ought to know that someone messed with the sandbox template. I fixed it, but it said that people who mess with it get blocked, and I figure you can. Their user was — talk Bubsty edits 01:28, 3 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know, Bubsty. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 01:31, 3 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Featured Article

Yep, I noticed that. I'm very impressed with how much it's evolved since I last saw things. Thanks for your help with keeping it going! -DMurphy 04:14, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
