:::Glad you got that straightened out. I figured it was probably an honest mistake. I mean, the Wiki does involve computers, the Internet, and web pages. The potential for random failure just gets worse the more of those you involve. Considering the timestamps, you probably edited an earlier version of the page, and saved it, rather than it being an edit conflict.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Homestar Runner Wiki! I wanted to extend a personal welcome, since I believe strongly that a Wiki should be a democratic and non-threatening place where everyone feels like they can contribute. Unfortunately it can be very frustrating at first if you make changes that are ignored or changed back by other users, but if so I encourage you to hang in there; as you get a feel for the way things are done around here you'll feel more at home. That was my experience, anyway!

If you need any help, feel free to ask anyone on the welcoming committee (like me!). You can also post questions on the FAQ talk page.

Here are some tips to get you started:

  • The best way to start is with the HRWiki:Introduction, followed by a brief tour of the wiki: HRWiki tour!
  • If you need general information, editing tips, or answers to frequently asked questions, check out the help page.
  • Before you do any significant editing, be sure to familiarize yourself with our wiki standards.
  • Read up on the rules and guidelines for your user page. What you're reading right now, by the way, is the "Talk:" page that goes with your user page. It's a good way to communicate directly with specific users. The best way to respond, though, is on the same user page where the conversation was started. E.g. if you have a question, go to my user talk page and edit it, then watch my page (via Recent changes) for a response.
  • If you're not sure what you can do to help out, head over to The Stick.
  • If you're looking for more community interaction, you can also register over at our forum and get More Community Interaction Than You Or Your Grandmother Can Handle!
  • Above all, be bold and have fun!

Feel free to delete this message when you're done reading it. (In general, it's frowned on to delete other people's input on talk pages, but this entry is just here to be helpful. When it's done being helpful, I guarantee you won't hurt my feelings by ditching it!)

Sincerely,
AbdiViklas and the rest of the welcoming committee (23:00, 2 January 2006 (UTC))

ok, even though abdi beat me to you, um.........thanks for joining the wiki! Seriously 23:06, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, sorry for doing what I just complained about earlier (beating somebody to the welcome)! —AbdiViklas 23:21, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Signature

To answer your question, one would leave a signature by typing four tildes (~~~~). -- Tom 23:14, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

{EDIT CONFLICT (i.e. written at the same time as the above edit)}Hey YK! Here's the easiest way to sign something: type some tildes, like ~~~. If you use three it will automatically turn into your Username (linked to your user page); four will turn into the same thing plus the time and date; and five will turn into just the time and date. And as for figuring out how things are done, I highly recommend the links in my welcome message above, especially Help. (And, as you start doing more editting, the standards.) But really the best way to catch on is to hang out monitoring Recent changes and see what people do and say. Now, check out what happens when I use ~~~~: —AbdiViklas 23:21, 2 January 2006 (UTC)


Lemme give it a try here... YK 23:36, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Ah, good. Now I suppose I should make an "about me" page... eh. I'll do that later. =P Thanks for the help, guys. YK 23:36, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Strong Bad's Website on STUFF

Hi there, YK. I've removed your STUFF page on Strong Bad's Website because you're arguments were correct: bottom 10 came out two years after website; therefore, the fact was pointless and has been removed. Thanks! —FireBird|Talk 01:46, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for letting me know. I made a comment in the Talk page for said site, but it went unanswered for a week or so, so I decided STUFFing it might get it some notice. I thought it was kinda silly, but I didn't want to outright delete it, so...yeah. =P -YK 01:52, 4 February 2006 (UTC)


Good userpage

Y'know, I have to admit, Your userpage is pretty good. There's one problem: You should upload an image. If you know to cut and paste, than you could click on edit when visiting my userpage. when you click edit, you'll see how I put an image up. Just cut and paste, and customize the images any way you want! This way, you're userpage wil be great. Talk atcha later, — Seriously (Talk) 14:58, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

Ah, thanks for the compliment. Thing is, I don't really have any ideas for pictures to add there at the moment... though I'll upload any if I do. -YK 05:02, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

Sig

I fixed those links for you, let somebody know if you need any help designing your sig. Thunderbird 04:38, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Man, you guys are quick! Well, I read all the how-tos and stuff sometime back, but I ended up lost. At the least, it never mentioned how to include a small picture. I'm still fairly new to wiki...ing, so, can you (or someone else) explain that part to me? Beyond that, I'll try to wing it. -YK 04:44, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Click "preferences" (one of the options at the very top), and paste this into the line that says "nickname":
{{User:YK/sig}}
Make sure the "raw signatures" box is checked. (Done). When you've done that, let me know, and make sure to sign so we know if it's right or not. :) Thunderbird 04:53, 3 April 2006 (UTC)


Ok, I think I've got the basics figured out. However, knowing what that particular SBEmail means doesn't help me with my sig issue. =P

In all seriousness, I've figured out what to do. I've never messed with the buttons at the top of the edit pages before. However, I'm not sure what to do about adding colors and/or pictures. Currently, I just italicized my nick as a test. If it works, and if I can get some help with what I just said... I'll improve it. Thanks. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 05:06, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Removing non-arguments

It sounded like you were hesitant to remove this non-argument. Don't be. You did the exact right thing. :) — It's dot com 03:21, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

STUFF

I just read this — I don't think you need to STUFF it. If somebody strongly believes in it, then it's their job to start the STUFF process. Talk atcha later! Trey56 23:10, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Point. I'll let someone else STUFF it, then. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 23:11, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Cool, thanks. Just wanted to save you some effort :) Trey56 23:12, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Fraternal Order of Referential Explanations Local 4157

Good call on moving my comment from Real-World References to Explanations. That's exactly where it belonged. I was so disappointed when I checked this evening and my "Reference" wasn't there anymore, only to realize I'd simply put it in the wrong section to begin with and you'd corrected that! -ReverendTed 03:24, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

This section is a reference to your edit

I'm gonna go ahead and give you some brownie points for this edit. Good jorb! :-) Loafing 04:41, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Heh. Thanks. Actually, I was about to outright delete that fact as a stretch, but decided I'd look at the transcript for A Jumping Jack Contest first. And sure enough, it *does* seem to be the same line. Still, I've seen the word "reference" on this wiki so many times, it's all but lost its meaning, so I like to use worthwhile substitutions when possible. =P -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 04:44, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Please be to not stomping on other people's talkin's.

On Talk:web_comics it looks like you had a bit of an edit conflict or something, and just steamrolled right over other people's edits. On talk pages, I believe that's considered impolite at best, and downright malicious at worst. You're generally not supposed to edit what other people say. I'd suggest rolling back your edit to recover what Dementedc and KieferSkunk said, then add your own paragraph in properly. I'd have rolled it back myself, but that would have made it a little harder for you to repost your paragraph, so I thought I'd leave that in your hands. The other option is to have an admin sort the edits out, they might be able to fix it cleanly. -- LGC&CS 22:31, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

:Err... what? I, er, inserted my post in the conversation where it belonged, as I was specifically responding to Kiefer. If I accidentally removed posts, it was an accident (perhaps due to the fact that I accidentally editted an older version of the page) and nothing more. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 22:48, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Reverted. That's all it was. The Wiki hasn't been working right for me over the last few days... lots of slowdown, and sometimes my edits just flat out don't save. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 22:51, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
Glad you got that straightened out. I figured it was probably an honest mistake. I mean, the Wiki does involve computers, the Internet, and web pages. The potential for random failure just gets worse the more of those you involve. Considering the timestamps, you probably edited an earlier version of the page, and saved it, rather than it being an edit conflict. Thanks for taking care of it though! -- LGC&CS 23:53, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
