[edit] Vector Skin?

Im trying to use the Wikipedia Vector skin, but i can't find the .js! Can anyone help? - POM Z 18:15, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

This isn't Wikipedia. Why don't you ask there. — It's dot com 21:12, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
The user might've meant where s/he can change the style's JS here on HRWiki. You can do so by going here. ColdReactive 05:35, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Happy 10th Berfday, H*R!

Since we've got a good two months for this i'm gonna ask: Are we having a H*R 10th Anniversary celebration? Like, January 1,2010. That'd be the 10th anniversary. My friend said on November 1,2009 there wasn't any kind of celebration...or even a message (y'know, for Matt's birthday). So, I just wanted to ask. CrabAttack1999 00:12, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Well, techincally... --Color Printer 03:48, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
It is, however, the 10th anniversary of As for celebrations, though, I don't really think there's much in the works. Really, what would we do? We're basically a Homestar Runner encyclopedia, not a place for socialization. There's been talk about having a Featured Article themed for that day, but other than that, there's not a whole lot I can think of that we would do that fits our nature as a website. Heimstern Läufer 03:52, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
"Not a place for socialization."... Errr... Are we not? We sent birthday cards to both Chaps, we have thriving forums and some users met each other in real life. That aside, why shouldn't we do something for the 10th anniversary? TBC recently strengthened the bond between the two sites in the recent donation drive, and I think we should do something spacial. At least send a card, or something... I know for sure that they themselves are planning a big toon for the occasion (I read in a recent interview), so why shouldn't we? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 05:32, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
When I referred to socialization, I meant something like an on-wiki celebration, which I assumed was what was being referred to in the above post. Something like a card for TBC? Yeah, that could be reasonable. Heimstern Läufer 05:41, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
I won't mind a on-wiki celebration. Maybe we could open our doors for a weekend and let anybody edit. Oh... We already do that. Well, we can invite everyone to sign up for free... Hmm. That too. How about we let everyone the chance to view the secret archives of every article and see for themselves how the wiki looked like... Err. I think we already do. Ok. I'm out of ideas. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 05:57, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

dat would be nice. Matt & Mike deserve a LITTLE celebration, so does the site...... i concur with the birthday cards. HAPPY FREAKIN' BIRTHDAY! and we could show Strong Bad screaming! just like the Mothers Day cartoon. -Tothelimit66

How about we all do what we can. Just a little something from each user that celebrates TBC and the glorious thing they've created for all the world to enjoy. Maybe someone could make a little flash cartoon or a .GIF, something that goes by in a few seconds saying something like "10 Years". Something along the lines of that. We don't have to really worry about it now, anyway, on account of we've still got...calculating...32 days and 6 hours before new years day anyways. That should be enough time to make at least something to show our gratitude for the website. I mean, what if we didn't make something and TBC visited and saw there wasn't any kind of thanks or 10 years anywhere? Do you want TBC to think we don't really even care? And, unless your an evil, evil person, you most likely don't want TBC to think we don't really even care. So, we should do something. We don't have to immediately do anything right now, but we should just brainstorm out some ideas. CrabAttack1999 23:00, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

I got a little excited so I sloppily threw together a short Flash animation/presentation in around fifteen minutes. It's a rough draft, so keep that in mind when you notice the "rough edges", such as the lack of fading for the H*R logo and the lack of fading for the Compé. I was thinking that around the 15-second mark, when the images fade away, that there could be a few fading messages or quotes or thank-yous or yays or usernames... I dunno. Here's the rough draft. Suggestions, please? Mean remarks are okay, too. — fuchsiania 01:13, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
That's actually pretty good. Could probably add the Everybody Everybody music or something.
Isnt the anniversery the sixth? Though, that doesn't give us a lot of time, but still. StrongAwesome 22:21, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
That's extra-terri-cular-iffic! No, seriously, that was very grood. Beats my animation, I can't animate anything better than windows movie maker and microsoft paint (which, of course, wouldn't be actual animation, more like a slideshow of pictures). More to the point, it's something that could be of use to stuff we could do. And, as the wiki itself (and Wikipedia, I checked just to make sure) states that the launch date was January 1, 2000. So, it's a sorta Tenthennial Extravaganza. Or, as Crackotage would say, "A Tenthennial Extravaganza. Guest-starring Tony Danza... and (for no reason, whatsoever) some guy from Bonanza." I just know they're (probably) gonna have some toon to celebrate. CrabAttack1999 22:09, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
Heh, heh, thanks for the compliments!... but... suggestions, please? — fuchsiania 04:09, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
Hmmm. Suggestions, suggestions...maybe some background music. Everybody Everybody, like someone said above. Or, you could do the music from Old Intro and Old Intro 2. Or, maybe a quick comment from Strong Bad. He could say something like "Wow we're old." Well, that's just something he could say. You could probably think of something better for him to say, that was just an example. He could say something smart-alickey and clever. Something he would say. CrabAttack1999 18:38, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
May I suggest something? I think there should be some dramatic music in there. Back on Topic: There's probably the possibility that TBC will check the wiki on New Years, unless they forget (but how could they forget?). So we certainly need to do something. So, a card is a good idea. Stavey the Stupid Hippie 20:55, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
Well, whatever we're doing we need to decide on it NOW. There's only 11 days left for this. So, we really should decide soon. I for one vote we do a card. And maybe a little banner at the top, too. But, seriously we should decide sometime this week. Not a lot of time left. C-Son-L Sweaters 22:02, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
Maybe make a flash intro to the wiki? I don't know. We should have a page for ideas other then the main page discussion. TheThin 22:04, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
We could also try this. Using Powerpoint, Selteco Flash and Trillix Decompiler, I managed to make these. Perhaps we could use them on the Main Page. That'sBupkis! 00:33, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
Actually, these are not bad! I like those old versions! How about a storybook version of the wiki logo, too? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 04:13, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
I don't think I have the proper add-on (or whatever) installed to view that because I couldn't see it. How 'bout instead, you do the external link without the brackets at the beginning and end so we can just see the picture with out having to go through a link? C-Son-L Sweaters 23:06, 22 December 2009 (UTC)


That'sBupkis! 23:29, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
Nope. I guess I don't have the proper add-on (or whatever) installed, because it's still not showing the picture. It's showing one of those white boxes with the red "X" on the right side with the file's name in the middle part of the box.
It looks kinda like this:
X homestar-10thannfade.png
And this:
X strongbad-10thannfade.png
So, I must not have the proper add-on thing installed to see it. C-Son-L Sweaters 23:12, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
This is red-iculous. If you have an image that you're suggesting we use on the wiki, then just upload it here so we can see it. — It's dot com 14:35, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Here are the pictures. Sorry about that whole MediaFire thing. I won't do that again. That'sBupkis! 15:10, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Oh, hey, I like that a lot. We could do the logo in an early-Homestar version too. — It's dot com 17:48, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Good idea! I'll get to work on that, and upload it when I'm done. That'sBupkis! 19:28, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Well, here it is. That'sBupkis! 20:09, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Hmm...What program did you use to make this?--Record307 Talk/Contribs 20:13, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
I used Selteco Flash to make the logo. That'sBupkis! 20:18, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Fotoshop, I like the Flash! I could give you a better rip of the music, if you want. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 21:35, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Okay, SB (Soiled Bargains), I want! ... it... the rip... of the music, please! Just email it to, please! — fuchsiania 23:18, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, User:That'sBupkis. Those are great. I guess I should've went on MS Paint and made a little somethin' somethin', but I got caught up with the Holidays. I've still got three more relatives to visit (I wish they didn't live so far's a two hour drive), so I might not be able to do anything right yet. I'll try and get started on it around Tuesday. I won't be able to do anything on Wednesday or Thursday and I won't be able to get much done tomorrow, so I'll try and make something on Tuesday and I'll upload it when I'm done. Anyways, we could use those pictures on the Main Page or something. We only have until Friday, though. So if we're gonna do that, we betta' get crack-a-lackin'. C-Son-L Sweaters 19:23, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I've decompiled some .swf's and here are a couple antialiased .pngs anyone can use! — fuchsiania 05:09, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
Alright, we're getting further and further along with each passing day. C-Son-L Sweaters 21:18, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

Alright, we've only two days left. More specifically, 4 hours, 40 minutes and one day. If someone has something they want to suggest or present, now would be the time. Today is probably the last day for ideas, as tomorrow we're going to have to start preparing. How are you with that Flash Intro, FotoShop? C-Son-L Sweaters 20:20, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

We've kinda run out of time on getting together the Flash intro or a card, but that's okay, because the Main Page styles will be good. I think I've got enough ideas from the suggestions above to put it together, but it's not too late to make a suggestion. — It's dot com 02:15, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
I hate to ask this so late, but FotoShop, which page did you rip the music from? It's dot com, maybe a Flash and a card. I wish I could think of something myself, but...darn it. I can't think of anything! Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 03:03, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
Go forward! Move ahead! Try to detect it! It's not too late! We still have one more day to decide what we're going to do. That'sBupkis! 03:22, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
The time for deciding has pretty much passed. We're going to make a throwback Main Page style accompanied by a congratulatory note across the top. I'm actually pretty close to being finished setting it up. Any new ideas at this point need to be blow-you-out-of-the-water amazing, and I don't think there's time now to make a Flash intro that fits that criterion. — It's dot com 03:29, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
Wait, TBC registered H* on New Years Day? I thought they did it on December 6th or 7th? SBE-mail Checker Dan 17:48, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
See the timeline of Homestar Runner. — It's dot com 18:03, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
It seems that alot of users also agree to the card. What if we create a page on the wiki where users can sign it with a comment, like the Yearbook Character Page, where it could be like:

Happy 10th, --User:User1

Happy freakin' day! --User:User2
That'sBupkis! 18:14, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
I still think we should go with a card and a Flash. But I think we should be open to any ideas, since anything we do will be finished late, anyway. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 20:08, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Okay, I've thrown together a title image for the tenth anniversary. Notice it says "The Homestar Runner Wiki". If there's time, do you think that maybe, y'know, it could be used for the wiki? — fuchsiania 04:26, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Great jerb there, Fotoshop. I uh, I said you did a good jorb out there! A GREAT JEERRB!! That'sBupkis! 04:36, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
Hey, um, was the logo changed? Or is it still being worked on? 'Cause for me the logo is still the normal background with the frozen Bauhaus '93 type and Homestar still wearing his snow hat. C-Son-L Sweaters 17:30, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
Dunno. Maybe you need to clear your cache? Stavey the Stupid Hippie 17:37, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
According to the page source, it hasn't been put up yet. That'sBupkis! 17:53, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh, alright. Thanks, Bupkis M'n! C-Son-L Sweaters 17:56, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Okay, just to sum things up for some people who are confused as to what day the Anniversary is. It is today. While, yes, the Site was registered on December 6, 1999, it was launched on January 1, 2000. We are celebrating the day the Site was launched not registered. Which means the Anniversary is today. Thank you. C-Son-L Sweaters 18:07, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

So, in an attempt to get something late in, are we going to start a card? Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb)

Out of curiosity, how long will the wiki be like this? Not that it doesn't look great now! Religious Corn   20:14, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

I have to say I am really liking this theme, Can we put it on the list of themes to choose? and by we I mean you as I have no power. The McArby! 22:52, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Decemberween Theme

So, when are we putting up the decemberween theme for the wiki?--Record307 Talk/Contribs 03:32, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

Looking at the history, we usually don't switch the theme for another week, week and a half. We could switch earlier though, if people wanted. — It's dot com 02:37, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
Well, Decemberween is in two weeks. So, we should probably put the theme up sometime next week. CrabAttack1999 22:19, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
What's the name of the File for the Decemberween Logo? C-Son-L Sweaters 21:55, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
wiki-dween.gif. Sorry if we're not supposed to link to this. That'sBupkis! 22:21, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
I don't see why not, since it's publicly available from the Common.css. JCM 22:32, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
Okay, thanks guys. C-Son-L Sweaters 23:06, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
After all, it is a website component that you can't right-click and save. That'sBupkis! 15:51, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
That's true. When I right click the logo, "Save Picture" or "Save Picture As" or any of those related options don't come up, instead it has options about the link to the Main Page. Do you have the file name of the Halloween Logo, too? I don't have a .gif of the Halloween Logo yet. C-Son-L Sweaters 19:36, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
I thought maybe they were trying to protect the logo from modification? Anyways, the link to the Halloween logo is titled wiki-ween.gif. That'sBupkis! 00:20, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks a million, Strong Bad C-Son-L Sweaters 00:25, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Milestones

What are the milestone articles? Jc iindyysgvxc 05:03, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

I think it's very hard to find out, or maybe even Impossible. When we reached the 2000th article, the admins checked and found out there was a problem with the counting system, and recounted. Then we suddenly had a little bit more then 2000, so we missed that mark. Probably. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 05:24, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
Plus we're all the time adding and deleting articles, so the number is always changing, in various places. We could have something at number 15, and then delete 2, 3, 7, and 18 the next day, affecting the placement of everything else. --DorianGray 06:13, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
Also, there is the case that an article could have entered or left stub-ery, which would also affect the placement. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 00:45, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Password

Is there any way I can make a temporary password my permanent password? I forgot my original password. Also, instead of giving a temporary password to users with the "Email New Password" button, you should give them a permanent password, like on Bulbapedia. Deletehead No. 123193 16:23, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Image = File

Should all the "image:" images (example:[[Image:TheCheat.PNG]]]]) be changed to "file:" images? (example:[[File:TheCheat.PNG]]) or does it not matter? TheThin 17:22, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

It really doesn't matter as it's all backwards compatible with the namespace alias, and doing so would just add needless revisions... there's no harm in lumping that change with another, major revision you make to a page, but not much is gained even from that. — Defender1031*Talk 19:00, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Over?

I know Homestar Runner is on hiatus because of a baby break, but I have a feeling it might be over at the same time. There have been no updates for 49 days and counting - longer than any other break! RickTommy 08:07, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

I think babies take a lot of attention for at least the first 100 days. Also, there HAVE been updates, just no toons for 49 days. OpenSourceGreg 10:26, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
Regardless, all this is just speculation and forum talk. Heimstern Läufer 10:42, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Stinkoday?

In honour of Stinkoman's birthday, we should change the logo to 1-Up on the logo! Whaddya' say? This is A Website (T/C)

We'll see. We've got other logo changes going on already, with another one to come in the next couple of days. But maybe. (Or we could just go whole hog and change our logo all the time like Google.) — It's dot com 22:34, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Old Wiki

Are there any articles from the old Wiki that 1) didn't get moved to the new Wiki or 2) were deleted or moved at some point after being moved to the new Wiki? RickTommy 22:04, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

If by "Old Wiki" you mean the WikiTikiTavi Homestar Runner Wiki, then yes. Even though I wasn't registered back then (I was only 8 and had little knowledge, if any, about the internet and computers) there had to be. They were probably pages that didn't cite enough information and nonsensical useless pages created by vandals. C-Son-L Sweaters 22:57, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Menu

Why do some toons/games have a full Flash menu when right-clicking, while others have just Settings and About Flash Player? RickTommy 22:13, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

You have to give more information. What do you mean "Menu"? There are a lot of Menus and you could be talking about anyone of them. And are you talking about something here on the Wiki, or something on Because there are many menus on both sites. Be more specific so someone can help you out. C-Son-L Sweaters 22:20, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
It's because of the menu="false" attribute in the embed tag. Not all toons/games have that attribute, so some have menus (usually older stuff). — It's dot com 22:24, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh, he's talking about how The King of Town and In Search of the Yello-Dello have menus. They're both old (from the year 2000) and have menus. Also the Sbemail 169 Deleted Scene had that, too. Is that what he's asking about? C-Son-L Sweaters 22:31, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
No, I belive he's talking about right-clicking. You know, like in the flash file. You can right-click, and a bunch of options(like rewind, forward, and play)pop up. Star Guy T/C 05:17, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh, wait I got it now. Flash Files. Yes, that's it. Flash Files (.swfs) have the full flash menu and others (.htmls) only have settings and about adobe flash player. C-Son-L Sweaters 15:36, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] See also: crap for brains. See also: carp for brains...

I have a question on the technical work on the wiki. What happens when a redirect links to a page that redirects to that page? Will it freeze up, or will it not autodirect? If nobody knows, shall we test it?--Jellote wuz here 03:46, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

You'd end up at the original page. The system won't allow infinite redirect loops. To explain, let's call two pages A and B, which each redirects to the other. Until recently, only one redirect was allowed, so if you clicked on A you'd end up on B, and vice versa. With the last upgrade, multiple redirects were allowed. Our limit, however, is set at two, so now clicking on A redirects to B, which then redirects back to A, and it stops there. — It's dot com 04:18, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Can't create article

Whenever I click on a link to an article that does not exist, I get "Oops, This Page Appears to be Missing" instead of a box that allows me to create the page. What's going on? RickTommy 06:31, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

I can't duplicate the problem. — It's dot com 21:10, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Re-opening of HRFanstuff Wiki

If you weren't planning it already, there should be some message on the Main Page of the Homestar Runner Wiki when the Fanstuff wiki is back open. This would be for all of the people who have stopped checking to see if the Fanstuff wiki would ever be back and had given up hope. 20:04, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

When it re-opens? To my knowledge, it already has circa early December 2009. But, I remember It's dot com said something about this subject before. C-Son-L Sweaters 20:12, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
While yes, I bet that Dot Com will say something about it on the main page, it hasn't reopened yet, C-Son. December was just when they put up the pages and made it look not-terrible looking. StrongAwesome 20:46, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Dear whoever is working on the Fanstuff wiki, We are running out of January. I would think it would be a good idea to either open soon or push back the date. The McArby! 22:09, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Do you really want me to push back the date? As long as there is still one minute left in January I am still good. — It's dot com 04:03, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
okay, but just a warning there are 2 hours left in january (in my area at least)
There's more than that here. — It's dot com 03:15, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

[edit] They're back

Does this mean the baby break is redundant? RickTommy 04:35, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes. I treated it the way we do main page messages and removed it. — It's dot com 04:48, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
I don't know. They could just be putting up minor updates, and they're still on break. I say we put the Baby Break back up until we get a new toon. SBE-mail Checker Dan 19:55, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] newbutton.swf missing?

Visiting the site this morning, there is no news button for the main page. Trying to access just the HR:newbutton.swf (or even HR:newbutton_f8.swf) results in a 404. I know they are likely doing a Trogday update, but is other people seeing the same thing? wbwolf (t | ed) 14:36, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

They work fine for me. Maybe they were updating the files and the server something something. — It's dot com 15:31, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
It's been the same for me all day. And it still is like that. Broken. -cjk
I'm seeing it on both my home and work computers. Usually, a problem like this will appear on one computer but not the other (they're on completely different servers). --Jay (Talk) 19:06, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
Jay, I'm assuming that you mean you're not seeing the button? newbutton.swf is 404'd for me too. I'm sure it's only temporary anyway. Loafing 19:19, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
Right, sorry, poor wording. I'm seeing the error and not seeing the button. --Jay (Talk) 21:09, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
Is it still not working for you guys? I can see it, along with the newest update. Shine Sprite (complain) 21:15, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
Oddly enough, the main page messages haven't even updated for me. Even the PQ and dragon bubbles didn't show up on the tenth. I even cleared my cache, like, 5 times. It's definitely something wrong on my end, yet I have no idea what it could be...StrongAwesome 21:27, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
Just gonna note that I get the 404'd as well. Why would the buttons show up for some people and not for others? CompGrl323 (talk · edits) 22:37, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
It's long been suspected that the load for the official site is shared among two or more servers, but that they aren't perfectly synchronized. There are many threads on this wiki similar to the above. — It's dot com 22:53, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
Despite Wbwolf's removal of it from Site Components a few minutes ago, the button is back on both of the machines I use. --Jay (Talk) 18:31, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
There are two buttons mentioned. Are you referring to the _f8 version when you say "it" and "the button"? — It's dot com 19:54, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh, the non-f8 version. The f8 version is still down from my perspective. That said, the main page itself looks fine now. --Jay (Talk) 20:05, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Just a note, I'm seeing pretty much the same thing — main pages correct and _f8 still missing. That's why I commented out the older one. Thanks, Dot Com, for clarifying. wbwolf (t | ed) 22:52, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Can we *not* become Google?

So recently our monobook.css has changed three times within this month. While I agree that both were worthy celebrations, there's a reason I've stopped going to Google's homepage, and it's not only because I use the search in the top right. I don't really care what obscure holiday it is today, and neither do a majority of casual users. So while I think no line has been crossed, I would like to put in a request that we keep the site design changes to major anniversaries and, of course, winter. Thanks, Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 07:33, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

"Neither do a majority of casual users"? Speak for yourself. But I digress. If you think no line has been crossed, then why post here? Just what are you afraid we'll start doing, and what exactly makes it bad in your opinion? (Note, too, that we have no further plans for site redesigns at this time. My tongue-in-cheek suggestion above was not serious.) — It's dot com 16:23, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
I for one enjoyed the different wiki styles. They also coincided with regular H*R holidays, and I do like that we acknowledge those. My two cents. Loafing 21:23, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
Hey, I love those Google Doodles! (That is the official name.) I also love these special holiday skins! Shine Sprite (complain) 03:15, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Edit shortage

The Wiki was only edited 27 times yesterday. Is that the lowest number of edits it has had in one day? RickTommy 02:05, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

That information is not readily available, but it's reasonable to assume that 27 is unusually low for us (not counting instances where the database was locked or in some way unavailable). The overall edit count typically drops during extended breaks in between official updates.It's dot com 02:34, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
Recently, I remember the on Christmas there were so few edits, I saw three days worth of them on the RC. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 05:09, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] New Splash Page

Now three buttons are on the splash flash: Come on in (middle), watch intro (left) and shop our store (right). ColdReactive 01:17, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't see you guys already added it to Index Page, I normally call these things Splash pages, but eh. ColdReactive 01:22, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Store is in red now

That makes me want to buy things! Uh, where do we note that? Do we have an article on "the bottom of every page" ?

It's noted on the big updates page and the secton on the NavBar. — It's dot com 04:48, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Store link

Why did they add the Store link on the index page just recently? Why didn't they do it in the past? RickTommy 12:56, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

They didn't tell us. Any answer I could give here would be speculation. If you'd like to speculate about it, there's a thread over at the forum on this subject. — It's dot com 13:29, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
