[edit] Qermaq

That's a pretty unusual name, I'm curious, how you come up with it? That might be some good info to start building your User page off of. Thunderbird 22:14, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

Wow, where to begin! It's just made up to sound cool, I've been using it online forever. Do a Google search on it.... Qermaq 22:23, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Parody wiki

Go here I'll make u a sysop --TheThin 19:29, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Hi, The thing! I guess you missed that part where I am a n00b. (I even had to look up how to type that link in the previous sentence.) I saw the site, looks pretty fun, but I doubt I'm ready for that! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 19:46, 18 February 2006 (UTC)
OK --TheThin 19:47, 18 February 2006 (UTC)
Thanks, though. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 19:49, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Pronunciation

A question for you in this style of your userpage:

[edit] An Ancient, eh?

Hi Qermaq. I noticed on your userpage you've been around H*R since July 2002. I'm curious, do you perhaps remember anything from H*R that we don't know, from back then? The one thing in particular that's bugged me is the wireless bizness thing. Do you remember anything about it? Apparently the "I drank too much salty plum soda. - Stu" rollover email on the Toons Menu used to featured on it. I'd love to build a page about it, but currently there's not enough info. Anything else you remember from way back when would be awsome too. Thanks, Thunderbird 20:46, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Ya, I'm an oldbie. But I don't remember encountering that WPI thing - not that I'd have even looked at it if I had, since I don't use a mobile to access the Web. But if I do remember anything cool, I'll be sure to spread the love! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:56, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Homestar Number

If all goes well on Tuesday, my H*R number could spike right the way to one. As it stands right now, I'm a four. I know this guy on the wiki who's cousin is a guitarist who worked with TMBG, who had TBC do a video for "Experimental Film". But I guess that number's kind of a cheat. :P Thunderbird 03:52, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Hey, even the folks who got an email from TBC have me beat! Have fun Tuesday! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 04:54, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Spanish Quote Award

Congrats Kermie! Ding! Tres Veces!
--אוקאלייליי (Ookelaylay)

I'm so honored! And it was on one of my favorite Puppet shorts! Yay! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 23:21, 28 February 2006 (UTC)


[edit] Chords

Well, a few people mentioned in chat they liked the "different town" transcription, but I don't know what to do next! I mean "Because It's Midnite" is D F C D, done; "Trogdor" is riff-based so a chord transcription would be useless; "Secret Song" is just impossible. (That is a Gb major triad over a C major triad at the end, though.)

So what now? Any ideas? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 18:02, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

Could you send me the tab sheet? I tried playing it and have chord'd the CGNU fight song. LePorello / T / C 23:50, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
I've emailed you already, so...whenever you're ready, send it off. LePorello / T / C 19:54, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
Just got home. You should have it now. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:35, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
I gots it. LePorello / T / C 20:58, 3 March 2006 (UTC) P.S. Do you know the chords for Experimental Film?
Take a look at the TMBG Wiki, I bet they have it. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:59, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
They do. But I have a probalo. I am trying to get the notes for the boss music, and I've gotten the first part, but I can't get the rest. Can you help me? LePorello / T / C 19:49, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Welcoming

Hey Qermaq. Thanks for welcoming those two. Here's a quick tip: Remember that edit summaries are for the page itself as much as (or even more than) for the recent changes list. A new user might be confused by a summary of "standing in, no welcomers aboard". Keep on tranglin', though! — It's dot com 18:16, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip. I am still figuring this place out as we speak.... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 18:21, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Page

I noticed you edited recently, and need a quick responce (not an order ;-)). Is this page an "okay" page? I just don't want it delorted right when i move it. I know most of this is on the article's pages, but I kinda think it's relevant. I mean, TBC use this a lot.

[edit] Here Is A Question

About some of HIAQ's comics being down, it's normal as the site was just put up a few hours ago and there's undoubtebly some errors... Iris, the site's hoster, is working on it as I type. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

Hey, no preoblem, whoever you are! I just commented out the item rather than delete, so it'll be easy to re-add once everything's nice and peachy again. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:55, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Bad Email

Hi Qermaq! I was just wondering, what strong bad email were you in? With crap, Whatzitlover 22:31, 6 March 2006 (UTC)Whatzitlover

I wasn't in an email, but I do like to go into Strong bad's dryer now and again... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:32, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Easy does it

Hey Qermaq. I've been noticing you make some good edits lately. I also saw this, however. Don't look now, I'm just a friendly reminder. Thanks. — It's dot com 03:56, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Plan G

Plan G

The "Plan G" award for creativity. Ding! LePorello / T / C 11:28, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

And I got run over by a lawnmower blade! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 16:25, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Sad Smiling

Thanks for the reminder. :) Any other idea for articles worth such galleries? --PoweredByHomsar 05:12, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Apologies

Will this mean I'm considered a wiki troll? videlectrix.pngGrit7"Meh!" 05:21, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

No. Creating a page that you don't realize is against the rules usually won't get you blocked, so long as it's not offensive and you're not persistent about keeping it after being asked to stop. --Jay v.2023 (Auld lang syne) 05:23, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

Alright, thanks! videlectrix.pngGrit7"Meh!" 05:25, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, like Jay said, everyone makes a mistake at first when they don't know how things work all the way yet. 'Sok. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 12:19, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Sandlot

Not that I support it being on the page (winking is just winking), but to answer your question: The Sandlot. --DorianGray

Thanks. Is that well-known? Cuz I've never heard of it! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:01, 18 March 2006 (UTC)
It's fairly well known, I guess... With people I know, anyways. --DorianGray

[edit] Cupcake Catch

Hi Qermaq! Thanks for the rewording on my cupcake comment on the Candy Product email. That sounds a lot clearer now.

Twas my pleasure, Compdude. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:03, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Not a n00b

Dude, Qermaq, I just reread you user page. Nice update about the email and all, but everywhere on your page you mention that you are new, clueless and a newbie. This is just not true anymore. In the short time you're here you already made yourself noticable. You created three pages, reverted vandalism, voted on STUFF, helped other "new" users, and made more then a 1300 contribs (Almost 900 this month!). So pull yourself together and wipe that state of n00b from your userpage! :) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 19:51, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I guess I know my way around a bit better now! Thanks! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 19:55, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
You're weclome! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 21:09, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
