NES Endings Trivia Challenge

12 February 2007

"MY PANTIES!"

The game is Rampage, which was ported to the NES. rampage makes reference to the game when The Cheat and Strong Mad rampage about in the Easter egg. -- Tom 06:44, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Exactly! Trey56 13:35, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

21 February 2007

River City Ransom is the game, and the email is theme party because the pink shirted enemies are frat guys. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 19:32, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Nice work — that's exactly what I was thinking of :) Trey56 23:24, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

6 March 2007

The game is Contra. Took place in the Amazon Basin. "amazon" is part of the URL for Bookazon.com which features Leomard Sportsinterviews. -- Tom 06:03, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Yep — as opposed to other versions of the game, which apparently took place off the coast of New Zealand. Well done! Trey56 06:11, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

This may be unrelated, but Strong Bad mumbled Super Contra in his sleep once. I think that may be a sequel or something. --Addict 2006 14:28, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Nope, not unrelated at all; that's the first sequel to Contra, and I considered using that as the clue for this one... Good catch! Trey56 15:19, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

14 March 2007

The game is RoboCop. Homestarloween Party introduced Visor Robot, who shares RoboCop's visor and the "Robo" portion of the name. -- Tom 02:35, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

That's correct — also, according to Strong Sad, the Visor Robot has a human brain, just as Robocop has some human organs...but that's stretching the connection :P Good work! Trey56 02:40, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Ahhh! So that was the connection! I knew it was RoboCop by looking at the Bigger image (it's the last scene of the movie) but it didn't occurr to me that it was the visor robot that was modeled after it :(. --Stux 14:44, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, the question was admittedly kind of a stretch on this one — way to recognize the game, though! Trey56 15:12, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Thank you! Next time I'll just have to beat Tom somehow. If that's at all possible ;). Dude, you're quick replying. Do you sleep? Both last night and this morning (US Eastern Time Zone) you replied quickly to my notes! I know you're a native german speaker (I think Dorian mentioned that in some other talk page): do you live in Europe? Anyway, next time, I'll be ready ;). --Stux 15:25, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Sleep? What's that? Naw, I live in Chicago, and I only speak English very well — you might be thinking of Loafing, who's a native German speaker. As for being on at weird hours, that comes from the combination of being a grad student and a parent of a young child ;) Trey56 15:34, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Ah! Loafing! Yes, yes I did confuse you guys. Did I tell you that I am bad with names? Ah! Yes, I know the Grad Student part very well. I can understand the parent part. I know this is late but, congratulations! (On the parent thing). :) --Stux 15:39, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks! :D Trey56 15:53, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

20 March 2007

The game is Maniac Mansion. The ending you have there is seen if you choose to shoot the meteor into space. The game is explicitly referenced in frame 792 of lackey in the Floppy Disk Container. -- Tom 19:07, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Wow, I can't stump you! Looks like I'll have to look for some more obscure games. Yep, that's exactly right — as a side note, I love it when TBC put little Easter eggs in their toons that you can only find by decompiling the Flash file (that floppy disk is mostly obscured by the black border). Good work! Trey56 19:14, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
(had an edit conflict and I just *now* noticed it.) How, just HOW do you do it!? --Stux 19:59, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Whaaa-donk. Click click click click click click click. This is not a drill. --Get what I mean? Why don't you try to explain this to the people here? Addict 2006 22:49, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
It's funny you brought that up — I noticed that too. It is clearly not the noise found in the NES version. Do you happen to know if it's the noise used in the PC version, or is the fact completely wrong? Trey56 22:53, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
Well, this and Wikipedia are subject to hoaxes... I wonder though. I don't have such a thing so I don't know. Man, if only a {{verification needed}} tag existed here. --Addict 2006 22:57, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes — anyway, thanks for reminding me about that :) Trey56 23:09, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

27 March 2007

So, since I have nothing to lose, I might as well observe that the statue that appears there seems to be a moai, so I'm wondering if the game might be Moai Kun. Mind you, I never played it and the screenshots I'm seeing don't look very similar to what you've got, so probably not. But heck, might as well try. Heimstern Läufer 05:12, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

You're on the right track; but that's not the right game... good guess! Trey56 05:14, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
Thought not, but hey, at least I could demonstrate my knowledge of the word "moai". Heimstern Läufer 05:15, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I would have said "Easter Island head" :D Trey56 05:17, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

The game is Arkanoid. The boss Doh behaves very much like Vector Strong Bad. -- Tom 06:06, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Yep, you're right! Can't fool you. In retrospect, I didn't know that there was an article on Moai in popular culture, although you perhaps didn't use that... Good job!Trey56 12:56, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
And in speaking Bubble Bobble series terms, and back into the infamous Bubble Bobble 2 ambiguation: Yes, Rainbow Islands has that boss and an island that makes a reference to Arkanoid (probably with deadly balls that once again kill the player instantly on contact, as it is with such games) too. --Addict 2006 23:17, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
And another game that features moais: Parodius Da (aka the "Nonsense fantasy", the first game released on the SNES). --Addict 2006 23:20, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
I didn't know about those ones — I'll have to play them soon! Trey56 23:56, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

3 April 2007

Super Mario Bros. 3 is the game, I believe. The toon is Pumpkin Carve-nival, in which The King of Town says "Sorry, king, but our princess is an another castle!" Heimstern Läufer 23:24, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Exactly — nice work! (and fast too) Trey56 23:29, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
Not exactly,
The game is Super Mario Bros. 3. The quote is "But our Princess is in another castle" which is quoted as "Sorry, King, but our princess is in another castle..." by The King of Town in Pumpkin Carve-nival.
See marioIII-4.gif :P -- Tom 23:30, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
Yes — you're right. Close enough, though :P Also, I should note that both Super Mario Bros. 3 and the KOT are referencing the original message at the end of the first seven worlds of Super Mario Bros. Trey56 23:41, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
Of course. Good work Heimstern! -- Tom 23:44, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, that last bit was more for completeness than 'cause I thought people didn't know it. Thanks for playing, guys :) Trey56 23:51, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

And you know what's more for completeness? And that people don't even know?!

Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

Well, I remember reading somewhere that what Princess Toadstool/Peach said at the end was different in the Japanese NES version (and even in the GBA remake, so I remember playing once). I do not wanna spaz out on every single unnecessary change, so I'll quote, from this site:

The Japanese SMB3 features a more serious Princess Toadstool. In the Japanese version, Princess Toadstool originally said, "Thank you! Finally, peace returns to the Mushroom World. The end!"

Picture: "Hahaha! Oh wait..."

As a side note:

...it is interesting to note that neither the Japanese nor English versions of SMB3 in Super Mario All-Stars are based on their respective NES versions. Instead, both games contain an amalgamation of the Japanese and English versions, with the level changes (such as the world 1-1 Fortress) remaining from English version, along with the graphic "gimmicks" (such as the suit flying off effect) from the Japanese version.

And if I must state again ("Oh no! Don't do it!!!") Oh drop that. Anyway, if I must state it again, I said that the non-joke ending was also repeated for the GBA remake. Princess Toadstool/Peach says "Thank you! Peace has at last returned to our Mushroom Kingdom!" And with that, I re-checked and it was like that.

Well, I'll have to ask you to go back to here and here. The original world names from the NES Japanese edit were mostly kept for the GBA remake. "Castle of Koopa" was kept but of course they changed it to "Bowser's Castle", in my opinion because they had to change that to fit today's standards... or something.

And if you ever play the GBA remake, you'll see they decided to add a little motion to the static pictures of the original, so that all the characters fit into the place when the freeze-frame sets in for each of them. (Get what I'm saying?)

Spoilers end here.

And so ends another ending plot expansion since the last time I stressed over Bubble Bobble and its own NES differences. Not that I'm stressing now. Really. And that's it. Hopefully I won't have to overload ending plot discrepancies again. Alright now. --Addict 2006 19:39, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Wow — interesting! I didn't know any of that! I think I like the English NES ending the best, though. That sneaky Princess! Trey56 22:19, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

12 April 2007

The game is Metroid. TBC finished it in under three hours but in more than one hour. -- Tom 04:00, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Yup, Quite good, quite good. And you got it in only 5 minutes! :D Trey56 04:04, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
While tempting, no pictures of you in a bikini are necessary. Thanks though. -- Tom 04:48, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
Oh, the picture of me in a bikini (=S) is reserved for 0-1 second replies. The 1 second—10 minute completions are rewarded with this tantalizing treat. Trey56 04:54, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Boom tick tick tick. Look, it is impossible for something to be submitted in only one second nowadays, with the inexplicable slowdowns and the time it takes for the Save changes button to work!!! Wait. I'm gonna put something else up. Let me verify it first. --Addict 2006 23:21, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

And who's to say how many seconds passed when you refresh a page and your thing is there?! It would already have been 29 seconds over the limit! Because everybody's at the limit. Now if you'll excuse me... Don't force anyone to try to reply to one second because it is downright impossible in a Wiki of this stature! --Addict 2006 23:24, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Well, let me tell you that if you put in someone named Justin whose last name is Bailey... I don't want to tell you any more because you'd have figured it out, along with the other way you can get into the Board. Uh, bored. Ugh, Detroit leads 2-0 over us... --Addict 2006 23:29, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, impossibility is exactly the feature of the 1 second limit that attracted me to it! Trey56 00:52, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

18 April 2007

Not working out for me. As I said, I am not familiar with many NES games. Someone can provide their guess now. --Addict 2006 13:12, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

The game is Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos. The Shadowy Figure is modeled after Ashtar, one of the main antagonists of the game. -- Tom 18:23, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Yes — great job! Trey56 18:52, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
Erm, is this true? (That is Shadowy Figure being modeled after Ashtar.) If so, why isn't this information listed in the Shadowy Figure page? --Stux 17:17, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
It was at one point, but it must have been removed... Trey56 17:23, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
Ah! Any idea why? Was it removed for a good reason? --Stux 19:07, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
Oh, it looks like it was removed here. I added that fact pretty early on in my wiki youthfulness, but I still think the similarity is intentional. I'm biased though, judge for yourself :) Trey56 20:11, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

1 May 2007

The game is Dragon Warrior II. The Gremlin's Armor and the Gremlin's Tail are both cursed items and share a name with the Gremlin. -- Tom 05:30, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Yup! I was thinking particularly of the tail, but you're absolutely right :) Trey56 05:32, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

12 May 2007

The game is Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight. Homestar Runner imitates Ken from Street Fighter in dangeresque 3. The English localization of the game changed the main character's identity and backstory from Kevin Striker to Ken to imply that he is the same Ken from the original Street Fighter. -- Tom 16:28, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Wow, nice work — I can't stump you! The pipes are broken! Trey56 18:27, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
And to think I read about that spinoff game once on Wikipedia. Guess I'm still not familiar with NES games. --Addict 2006 21:26, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Looking For Assignments

Hi, there. . . I'm really looking for some way to make myself useful to the Wiki community (so I don't feel like I joined for no reason ^_^), but I checked stuff out on the Stick and everything I looked at seemed to be done already. Any suggestions? I'm primarily suited for WikiGnome activities--correcting spelling, grammar, cleaning stuff up, etc. Anyway appreciate any help you can give me. Eh! Megan 03:26, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

When I am bored, I hit the random page link in the left column, and look for ways the articles I find might be improved. Try that. And incidentally, did you sign your talk posts with 4 ~'s? It didn't appear like I think you intended. Check your settings in preferences again, be sure you have the correct page "User:Eh! Megan/sig" in the signature box. I'm guessing it's not right. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 13:06, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
Eh! Megan! Qermaq's suggestion is a good one. Here are a couple other ideas:
  • Category:Articles needing cleanup — These articles need to be cleaned up, for various reasons (which should be listed on their talk pages).
  • Category:Articles for Discussion — These articles have been proposed to be merged with other articles or deleted. Getting involved with these types of discussions is a good way to find out what makes a good article and might give you some ideas of ways to improve other articles.
  • HRWiki:List of common misspellings — If you click on the links, they'll take you to any pages that contain those misspellings. I'm not sure how much luck you'll have there, but it's worth a try.
  • Lastly, there will probably be a homestarrunner.com update on Monday, so check back then and there will be quite a few things that need to be updated.
Hope that helps, and let me know if you have any other questions! Trey56 14:11, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Featured articles

Can only sysops create featured articles? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Do you mean, select which ones are featured? If that's what you mean, then no, it's a community decision: HRWiki:Featured Article Selection. Trey56 12:57, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
Can only sysops write featured articles. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
Okay, I think I see what you mean. No, there's no way to be able to predict if an article will one day be featured when it's written. As you know, anybody can create an article, but featured articles are selected from previously existing articles that are deemed to have major significance to the Homestar Runner body of work. Those decisions are made at the above link. Does this answer your question? Trey56 13:18, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
Close, but no. Let's say I wrote about Sports for a featured article. Can anybody create those articles or can only sysops create it. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
Anybody can, after consensus is reached about which article will be featured at the above link. Trey56 15:43, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

 :-)

New sbemail! Happy! -- Lazylaces Talk 14:08, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

Yay! Trey56 15:43, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

SB2O

Is there any way you could get The Stick and SB2O's history to say I created the page because I did create it. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Fixed. —BazookaJoe 15:26, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm Sam the Man but am in Hyperactive's profile

Hi Trey56. This is Hyperactive090. I'm actually Sam the Man at his house. Well, I was wondering, are my pages good enough to be a good page? Hyperactive090--(T) though I'm really User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Hello, Hyperactive090 / Sam the Man. Just so you know, you shouldn't edit the wiki from other users' accounts (see policy here). You should be aware of this, as users have been blocked for similar actions in the past.
I'm not quite sure what you're asking. Are you asking if articles that you've created are good enough to be featured on the Main Page? Trey56 19:26, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

ZAGNUT

Oddly enough Wikipedia alwways listed those candy bars on Homestar as ZAGNUTS. It was only us who were unconvinced, be fore you presented your evidence. (Geshmalderborgen 20:06, 17 April 2007 (UTC))

Yeah — it only specifically lists the appearance in 3 Times Halloween Funjob, but it looks like this editor added information in response to the more recent appearances... Trey56 20:21, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

sry

Sorry for being such a newb. I learned up by reading all sorts of policy and such. Is user js enadled here? Cause I can edit better with it. Thnx, --redirectltr.pngDarkest Hour 22:53, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

No problem. Yes, you can access your monobook.js page here. Hope that helps, Trey56 03:35, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Sysop?

How do I am becoming a Sysop? Many thank yous, -- Lazylaces Talk 16:56, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

There's a section on the wiki FAQ that addresses this. Keep on tranglin, Trey56 17:08, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

MVU

Congratulation! You won the MVU (The Most Valuable User). You are the 2nd user to win the award. Congrats on the award! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Thanks :) Trey56 18:52, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Template

How do I make a template? Because I want to make a template of all of Strong Bad's Computers, but I don't know how. --Jangles5150 23:39, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Have you read Help:Template? I rewrote that some time ago to make it easier to understand. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 23:46, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Help:Template has some instructions on it. You can also take a previously existing template and modify it. I see that you started a topic on this at Talk:Strong Bad#Computers — if you decide to create a sample template, you should probably post it in that section before you create a page on it, to get other users' feedback. Once you create a sample, I'm pretty sure users will be more likely to respond. Hope that helps, Trey56 23:47, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
By the way, if you decide to go the route of modifying a previously existing template, {{Strong Sad variations}} or one of the other navigation templates might be a good place to start. Trey56 23:53, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
I still don't get it. How do I start a new template? --Jangles5150 23:54, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Take a look at Template:Strong Sad variations — go ahead and copy it to the Sandbox, and the things you need to change are the text and links. Give it a try, and if you get stuck, go ahead and save the page (again, in the Sandbox). Trey56 23:58, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
What do you want me to change about it, and ill try my best. --Jangles5150 00:07, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
Well, that's an example of a template that might be of the form you'd use for the various computers. Use the syntax of that template, but replace the text with what would be appropriate for a computer navigation template. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:10, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
Oh. Groovy. --Jangles5150 00:11, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

I made it. Should I put it on the Strong Bad talk page? --Jangles5150 00:15, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Looks good (I made one tweak to the link of the title). Go ahead and post it on the talk page, if you like, and let's see what people think about it. Trey56 00:17, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
Did that. --Jangles5150 00:21, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
Sweet — I'll stop by and provide my input sometime soon... Trey56
Ok. Thanks for all the help with, like, everything.--Jangles5150 00:23, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
No prob :) Trey56 00:24, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

math problem

Awards
2+2=4
Q!

smooth, my friend. you got the math problem right. I'll probably make like a user box or something as a reward, so check back often.

-Zerlock1124

:D Trey56 16:22, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Here you go:

(userbox moved to tower to the right)

-Zerlock1124

Thanks! If I add any more userboxes on my other page, they'll creep into my NES Endings section and push down the image, so I'm gonna keep it here :) Trey56 16:32, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for telling me

Get rid of the following images:

Image: IMG_2617 Image: IMG_2434 Image: Sucky_Treats

Sure, upload bigger versions of the two images and use them in userboxes.

Stealthily Yours,
Homestarmy Commando1

Okay, cool — thanks a lot! Trey56 21:26, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Merging into another page

Hey, I need some help. How do I merge a page into another page that already exists? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

It depends on the pages, really. But generally speaking, once there's consensus on a talk page to do this, then look for any places in the permanent article where the new information might already be listed, and then add in anything that's missing. You may or may not have to create a new section on the page for the new information. Hope this helps, Trey56 16:28, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
Not really. Let's say I wanted to merge Burninating into Trogdor. How could I merge that? Every time a try to merge a page into a page that already exists, it won't let me. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
Oh, you're trying to do it with the "move" tab — that won't work. You have to edit the articles manually. Trey56 20:24, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
You can't really "move" a page into another if that's what you're trying to do. Mediawiki is designed to not allow anyone to do that. The only way to "move" into an existing page is to first delete the target page (an admin would have to do that). However, I doubt that is your intention here, so like Trey said: if you want to merge two articles you have to do it by hand, thus carefully you must "look for any places in the permanent article where the new information might already be listed, and then add in anything that's missing." There is no automated way of doing that. --Stux 20:27, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Thank-you, both of you. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Response to comment left on my talk page

See title... You made a bit of an oops. I think you may need to have your vision checked or something. Check my talk page for the response. Yadaman 22:18, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, you're absolutely right — sorry about that. Trey56 22:38, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

My page

Could you fix my page? it's all messed up. -- Lazylaces Talk 12:15, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Looks like Shwoo fixed it. Laters, Trey56 14:10, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Userbox

How do I make a userbox? Because I want to make one for the quotes thing on my page. --Jangles5150 19:49, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Take something like this:
{{userbox|border=#000000|mainbkgd=#FF6103|codebkgd=#000000|codecolor=#FF6103|code=RC|msg=This user patrols '''[[Special:Recentchanges|Recent Changes]]'''.}}
Just edit the parts you want to change. The six digit things are color codes for the various parts of the userbox, the "code" is the text that appears on the left, and the rest is the text that appears in the main box. Let me know if you have any questions! Trey56 19:55, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Ok. Cool. Thanks. --Jangles5150 19:56, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Monobook help

I need help with my monobook. Can you help me? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Unfortunately, I don't know that much about that, as you may be able to tell from my monobook.css page. Sorry about that. Trey56 16:26, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

How do you work this thing?

I don't get this talk page. Culd you please explain to me how to use it? Anyway, I left this here to thank you for correcting my previous and very large blunder before about the Atari Dragon. Go ahead and just get rid of this section when you've read it. Thanks again. Signed, 72.133.214.202

No problem at all — which talk page are you asking about? Let me know if I can help you out with anything else. Best, Trey56 01:51, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

SBemails

Can I make the transcript for the next SBEmail? I think I understand how the transcripts are formatted, and also, there's really not much else to do. I really didn't know who to ask, so I asked you. So, yeah. --Jangles5150 19:54, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Sorry this post turned out to be so long, but if you have time to read it, it should be helpful information:
Hey there — the only way to reserve a transcript is to be around when the toon is released and put {{transcriptinprogress|Jangles5150}} in the Transcript section. Assuming you're from the U.S., they're usually released in the wee hours of Monday morning or very late Sunday evening. On occasion, though, (usually when they post an "email soon" or similar Main Page message), the update is released Monday afternoon or evening. So, if you want to write a transcript, you'll have to be around right when the update is released, and I highly recommend being in IRC (particularly hrwiki-RC) to get first notice of when that happens.
Other than that, there really is a lot to do other than writing the transcript for the week's update. First, there are always a lot of other things that need to be updated after the week's new toon has released. Second, at any time of the week, check in on Recent Changes (or get a live feed of these at hrwiki-RC) and go through the edits people have made. A lot of times you'll find poor edits that need to be modified or reverted, and a lot of times you'll find talk page discussions that you can get involved on. As you do this more and more, you'll get a better idea of what kinds of things need to be done on the wiki throughout the week beyond the weekly update, and you may even find a project that you want to be consistently involved in.
Hope this helps, and let me know if you have any questions about anything! Trey56 21:49, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
Oh, nevermind then. I have sleeping... time... in the wee hours of Monday morning. So that's out of the question. I thought only sysops could revert, though. I do get involved in some talk page discussions sometimes. Thanks for the info, --Jangles5150 22:02, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
No problem. If I were you, I'd hold out for an "email soon" message and try to snag the transcript on Monday afternoon/evening. That happens fairly often. Trey56 22:04, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
Ok, I'll try to do that. But until then, I'll just keep looking at Recent Changes. --Jangles5150 22:07, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
Okay, sounds good. If I see any other projects that I think you might be interested in working on, I'll try to leave a message on your talk page. Trey56 22:10, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Cool. --Jangles5150 22:13, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Image Subpage

Okay, go ahead and delete it.- Saddy Dumpington 21:48, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Cool; thanks for understanding. Trey56 21:53, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

huh?

i was trying to edit naked homestar and i got some weird redirect crap, but was unable to fix a typo, because the text of the page wasnt there... how do i edit this page? thanks TheDude 13:14, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Strange — when I click on the link above, I have no problems. Does using this link (Naked Homestar) help at all? Trey56 13:21, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Up and Running!

Hey I got my Nintendo Challenge up and running on my userpage. Thanks again for letting me do this! I betcha you can figure out the question. It is pretty easy. :D TheYellowDart(t/c) 19:06, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Whee! Trey56 21:21, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
I got another one next week that won't be so hard. :P --TheYellowDart(t/c) 21:23, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Copyright

Could I copy your NES trivia thing please? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Sure, although Theyellowdart is doing the same thing as well. The more people that do the same trivia game, the less fun each person's will be, I fear. I guess I'd recommend that you try to think of your own Homestar Runner-related trivia game, but I don't have any objections to you copying mine if you want. Trey56 01:11, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
Thank you very much. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Personal Image

Even though I'm under 18, can I still have a personal image of myself, if it's impossible to see my face? Because I have a picture of me playing Bass at a local club/bar/concert hall, and you can't really see my face in it. So, could I use that? --Jangles5150 22:14, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Yes, as long as you're not under 13. That's the limit stated on HRWiki:Youth protection. Hope that helps, Trey56 22:15, 14 May 2007 (UTC)
But apparently you're turning 13 tomorrow! Homestar-Winner (talk) 22:18, 14 May 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I am turning 13 tomarrow. Wow. That was weird. So, I'll upload it tomarrow. --Jangles5150 22:22, 14 May 2007 (UTC)
