[edit] Leave me a message...

...and I will make fun of it. I mean call you back.

[edit] Your name

Hi there. I couldn't help but notice your username is very much like one of the main characters of the official site. In fact, it's exactly like one of the characters. I've noticed that sysops/admins have generally asked users to not use official character names here, though I couldn't find a specific page that stated this policy (or the policy was rescinded and I'm talking out my twees). In any event, you might want to request a new username over here: HRWiki:Changing username. (Note to Admins: If I'm wrong, please correct me and I'll apologize and never speak of this again. :)) — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 04:59, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

I know what you're talking about, KieferSkunk. The log in/sign up page says: "Avoid choosing a username that is identical to the name of a Homestar Runner character, toon, place, etc."
Anyway, I'm not trying to be an administrator, I'm just sayin'. Cool. --Garfunkel 23:12, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
I see why they might want me to avoid this. But is it an actual rule? I don't want to break any rules... but if it is just a suggestion, I am fine with my username and would rather not complicate things. --Meh Meh! 23:21, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
I know it's a rule on the forums, "Your name cannot be one of the main characters. It becomes too confusing." – I'm not certain it's a rule on the wiki, but it probably is. Probably best to be on the safe side and ask for it to be changed. --phlip TC 23:54, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
It is a rule. Lesser characters are okay, but the main 12 are off limits for several reasons. Confusion being one, and everybody wanting to be Strong Bad or Homestar being another.  ;) Thunderbird 23:59, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
Okay guys... thanks for your comments. Sorry for not replying sooner, but I have been kinda busy with stuff and haven't been on in a while. On the same note, I have realized that even if someone were to have this username, it should probably be someone with a little more contributions than me, since I honestly don't do very much here. Anyway, I am currently considering different usernames to which I might like to change. --Teh C. 05:28, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
You know, I noticed your siggie used to read "Meh Meh!" I believe that username is available, that might make a good change. :-)— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 07:09, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
Wow, more than four months later and no one's said anything more to me.... But I'll sign up for a different username, anyway. I'm honoured to have been The Cheat for at least a little while. Thanks!! --Meh Meh!

[edit] Your sig

I happened to notice that your sig is "Meh! Meh!" but it is policy that your sig contain your username or an shortened version of it (i.e. Thunderbird L17=Thunderbird, It's dot com=Dot com, ect.) So you could maybe change it to "The Cheat" or "Cheat". --Dacheatbot · Communicate 00:03, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
