Floppy Screens

Those are awsome. I couldn't have done it better myself. Yea, feel free to continue uploading floppy disk screens, I'm being kept pretty busy with the floppy disk summaries anyways, so thats great that it frees up my time. I also like the 'King of Screenshots' title. I'm glad someone noticed. Please, feel free to "continue and... not stop". Me and you, we're gonna clean up this wiki. Whereever there is no pic, we will create a dozen in it's place! Hahahahaha!

Okay, gonna go continue the Floppy summaries. Bye.

Well, just thought I'd give you an update on the page you helped me build. It's done, and it's excellent. Links can always be added to fansites for the games of course, but overall it's done, up, and thanks to a grant from the cheat, and viewers like you, it looks really good. Feel free to check it out at it's new location, Floppy Disk Container. Thanks again, if you ever make any pages, and want some help, count me in. I'm always up for a project.

Floppy Talk

Updated. What do you think? Thunderbird 21:30, 27 Oct 2004 (MST)

Awexome work, my friend. I hope TBC are looking at this wiki! --Teh P. 19:49, 11 Nov 2004 (MST)

Hey thanks, I didn't think to look for double-links to the Wikipedia. Sharp eye! [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 14:54, 8 Dec 2004 (MST)

I replied to the message you left on my talk page. In case you didn't see it, it was this:

I can't really take credit for the acronym -- that was Tom's idea, after we spent a few minutes trying to decide on a name for it. I asked if we should pick a playful name or a boring and adminstrative name. So we hit on the idea of a boring name with a playful acronym. We decided on this one when Tom noted we could go "STUFF'D!" whenever something had to be moved. :P - [[User:furrykef|furrykef (Talk at me)]] 02:01, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)


Well thank you for the compliment. Yea, that one was kind of hard to get, when I realized the old box was no more, I switched to another browser which wasn't updated yet, and snagged the screenshot before it was too late. Then a few hours later, when I had time, I tried to get the new screen. I was trying to think of how to get just a generic shot of it, when I realized that the first time or two, when you open it, it took a second to load, and had the generic title of homestar saying that quote, just on the picture. But you couldn't hear it. Of course I didn't notice that until it had already loaded. So once again I switced browsers, and managed to grab that one a few seconds before it loaded too. Since it was on the Main Page 9, the paper one, the background was mostly white, so I was able to just edit out the non-white parts by filling in the parts that weren't shadowed. Thank you for your notice of a rather difficult screen. Btw, I've started a new section that requires alot of screens, I haven't really done any yet, Firebird has been taking care of that, but it's here if you want to help. Thanks again. -- Thunderbird 08:42, 24 Nov 2004 (MST)

I'll be uploading as many halloween costumes as I can! --The Paper 08:58, 24 Nov 2004 (MST)

How Long Will The Paper Last?

I come bearing good news on The Paper front. I was a little astonished when I heard that the paper would only survive 55 episodes, or one year. However, if you take a sample year, such as the e-mail labor day to the release of the toon Labor Dabor, only 31 emails transpired. Therefore, by those calculations, with Teen Girl Squad, Marzipan's Answering Machine, Powered By The Cheat, The Cheat Commandos, and other e-mail replacements, I belive that The Paper has a better chance of surviving for one year and about 40 weeks or so, making it's date of possible replacement circa September 5th, 2006, or late summer/early fall or so. That's my prediction anyways. -- Thunderbird 08:53, 26 Nov 2004 (MST)

Well, if it takes that long, it might happen around the same time as the events listed in 2 years. Clever Ben

True, but 2 years were more of predictions I think, and not neccisarilly fact. This seems like they're really gonna do at least... Something though. To name the e-mail by name, it seems alot more concrete than 'sometime in two years, Coach Z moves into Strongbadia' Just my humble opinion though... [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 00:54, 5 Dec 2004 (MST)

Actually, 2 years should come to a finish before the printer, in 2005, since it was released 2003. But either way, I don't think anything will come of two years, (see above comment). [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 14:18, 10 Jan 2005 (MST)


So, does The Paper like his new brother? - Dr Haggis - Talk 12:43, 29 Nov 2004 (MST)

Of course! Anybody who can sport a Liquid Crystal Display is a friend of mine! -- The Paper 12:49, 29 Nov 2004 (MST)

A... Trophy?

I accept this incredible award with humble thanks and gratitude to all who have helped so much to get me this far, particularly the ones on my 'Favorite Users' list. And an extra helping of thanks goes out to The Paper. I couldn't have done it without you buddy! [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 01:00, 13 Dec 2004 (MST)

Quote Of The Week Flash File

Since you found the flash files for weekly fanstuff and sketchbook, (as told in sketchbook talk), I was wondering if you had the flashfile for quote of the week too, if there is one, for external links at the bottom of the page. Some way to see the new ones in fullscreen, like seeing fullscreen Fanstuff and Sketchbook. Do you follow? Is there a way? If you can, thanks in advance. [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 12:37, 30 Dec 2004 (MST)

I went ahead and updated the External links section of that particular article to reflect the addition of the this flash file: Thanks for asking! --The Paper 23:41, 30 Dec 2004 (MST)

Thanks, now all three weekly features have External flash file links. Makes me happy they do. [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 02:11, 2 Jan 2005 (MST)

Special Request Of A Task

Hi Paper! Thunderbird here again, with a special task for a few of my fellow users. On the Sketchbook page, in the Museum section of that page, the last picture is a bunch of rejected halloween costume ideas. The caption gives the challenge '10 bucks to anyone who can identify them all'. So what I propose is to identify them all. I've already set up a basic 'top left to bottom right' type list under the 'Description' section, with the two most obvious costumes in it. But can we get the other costumes, and win ourselves $10? Any costumes you know would be a help. Thanks. [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 02:11, 2 Jan 2005 (MST)

Update: The good Doctor Haggis was far faster with that task than I could have ever expected. All the costumes are done with the exception of one: The full body Marzipan. Many think that she is in fact Belle from Beauty & the Beast, but we're not quite sure about that. What are your thoughts? Any better ideas as to who this mystery Marzipans could be, or even just your opinion as to weather or not she's Belle? [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 12:10, 2 Jan 2005 (MST)
You know, I haven't given this much thought lately. I suppose she could be belle, but I think the situation is moot at this point. But thanks for asking for my opinion. --The Paper 18:36, 21 Jan 2005 (MST)

DVD Floppy Screens

Thanks pape, that's awsome. I was working and just got home, and was just about to check the thread. So I'm gonna do that right now, and start adding them the best I can to the Floppys list. Thanks man. [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 16:24, 9 Mar 2005 (MST)

Okay, it's up. Sort of. Any way to get straight PNG pics from the DVD? I think they'll turn out better if you can. If not, it's a pretty good base. I'll be working away at it for another little while yet... (Oh, and Btw, feel free to use my Talk page whenever need be. That's what it's there for). Oh, and what do you think of my Userpage? I've been working on it lots. [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 17:19, 9 Mar 2005 (MST)

Thanks, you rock. I've been really busy due to a recent spike in work, so any help on page would be much appreciated. [[User:Thunderbird L17|⇔Thunderbird⇔]] 23:31, 10 Mar 2005 (MST)

Thanks for your help anyways. At least SOMETHING is better than nothing. Btw, any ideas about the 'Cave Quest' one? Would there be any way to make a rotating picture of the two or something? (See that thar page fer more info). ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 09:52, 10 Apr 2005 (MDT)

Can people use those awesome FF&TB logos?

I'd really like to use them...

Sure, you may use them. Please upload them to another server - don't hotlink them if you can help it. I encourage you to make an account on the wiki (so you can sign posts) and you may place them on your future userpage, too! --The Paper 23:30, 26 Mar 2005 (MST)


I have a database ready, but wiki won't let me upload .xls files. I'll send it to you via e-mail if you give me your e-mail. --DMurphy 00:42, 27 Mar 2005 (MST)

Sent. --DMurphy 01:17, 27 Mar 2005 (MST)
Thanks! *goes to check email* --The Paper 01:20, 27 Mar 2005 (MST)

Your donation attribution

Did you want your name displayed on the donation ledger and the thank you page, or just your username? I've got your name up there now with a link. Let me know if you want me to take your name down. Sorry I didn't fix this sooner. Thanks. JoeyDay (Talk) 12:40, 12 Apr 2005 (MDT)

I would like my user name to be displayed instead of my real name on the ledger and thank you page, if possible. Thanks. --THE PAPER 10:10, 13 Apr 2005 (MDT)

Thanks Pape!

Not a problem, I would have done the same thing if I weren't so darn busy... And congratulations, you're now the first person besides myself to edit my userpage. (You could have just changed the whole link to just Floppy Disk Container, instead of leaving the 'Plus' on. That's what I did) Anyways... CONGRATURATIONS!!! ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 00:23, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Great Jorb!

Wow, you updated ALL those links! Cool beans & keen gear! Aurora the Homestar Coder 18:00, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Something Interesting...

Hey Pape, long time no see. Howsabout you helping me out with something, again? This time, it's a webpage. Namely, this one]. If you're wondering where I got it from, check the Strong Bad Email Fun Facts section. Anyhoo, I was just trying to figure out if this was also linked to in some other way on the site, incorperated into a toon or whatnot. I recognize it, but can't figure it out. But that's all just sidestuff. The reason I chose to tell YOU about this, was the fact that it involves the paper to quite an extent, it's in a different venue, is chewed and torn repeatedly, and is actually seen to be PRINTED OUT!!! So yea, that's about the size of it. I added it to the Fun Facts, and I feel it should be meantioned somewhere in relation with The Paper, but am unsure exactly where or how. Since you are the resident Paper expert on the Wiki, I figured I'd leave it in your capable hands. So what do you think we should do? Should we even make a seperate Printer page or something, since SHE's been meantioned on other occasions as well? ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 02:58, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

(P.S., on kinda a side topic, on the Paper page, under 'oddities', in 'invisibility', it meantions that the Printer is male, despite the paper being female. Then a comment is made that perhaps it is a refferance to computer parts being labled 'male and female' for obviousish reasons. So under the same line of resoning, Between a printer and it's paper, the Printer WOULD be female, and the Paper male. Get my drift? Anyways, if you want to somehow tactfully explain that on the page or whatnot, be my guest. But yea, there you go. There's my rambling done.)


Just letting you know, you have been given sysop privileges. If you have any questions, never hesitate to ask. Thanks. -- Tom 14:09, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Wow. This is quite an honor, Mr. Preuss. I will not let you down. Thanks a million. --THE PAPER 14:14, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Yay Pape! You're the last one. Now me, Firebird, Jay, you, we're all sysops! Sysops rock! Congratulations man. Thunderbird 06:26, 30 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Grats, you deserve it :-) --DMurphy 02:44, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
