[edit] Discussions

[edit] Hi Fire!

Sorry, check the recent changes in the special pages. I beat you to it. Last change of the old server, first change of the new server. I feel so special! ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 20:45, 6 Mar 2005 (MST)

But I was a pretty darn close! Oh well. You have the right to feel special. →FireBird
Btw, since the forum isn't up yet, perhaps you can help me with my... 'Progect'. Any idea how I could get my hands on the AhnbergHand font used on the Teen Girl Squad? It's not on Microsoft word. Could I download it or something? ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 20:52, 6 Mar 2005 (MST)
I'm not sure how. What kind of project is this? →FireBird
Sssssh. A secrety project. I'll let you know when I'm done. Don't worry about it then, I'll ask in the forum when it's up. Thanks anyways. ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 20:55, 6 Mar 2005 (MST)
Ooh. A secret. I'm good with secrety secrets. →FireBird
I'm sure you are... Oh, btw, since we're on the subjects of projects, perhaps you could help me with a not-so-secrety project I'm also trying to do. Do you have any way of getting screen shots off the DVD? (Mainly by having a DVD player built into your comp). ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 21:00, 6 Mar 2005 (MST)
Nope. I have the DVD, but have no DVD player in my computer. (I'm just a big help tonight, aren't I?) →FireBird

Oh you're always a big help... But yea, I got the DVD too, but not on my comp. I'll actually let you in on this project, basically I want screens of the floppy disk containers on the main pages of the DVD for the Floppy Disk Container. If we've got the Puppet Time Floppy Disk, I think CG'd Floppies are just as important. Oh well, FORUM'D!!! (Whenever it decides to come back on that is...) ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 21:09, 6 Mar 2005 (MST)

Why thank-you. →FireBird
Np. ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 21:16, 6 Mar 2005 (MST)
I got a font response in the forum. Come to think of it, why DIDN'T I google it? Oh well. I'll let you know when my project is done. (Ssssh, it's a SECRET). ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 16:54, 7 Mar 2005 (MST)
Sweet. →FireBird

[edit] The Lying Game

Wow, that was fast. Well this is L17's brother, J14. And I allowed my brother to change my userpage, since I don't really use it much. Thunderbird

Ah. Sorry 'bout that. Just thought ol' Thunderbird L17 was creating another page for himself, even though I thought it wasn't like him to do something like that. (Welcome to the wiki, by the way.) →FireBird
Heh heh, I fooled you didn't I? Well I've never been much for lying, so I'll level with you. This is Thunderbird L17. And I do have a J brother, but he would be 20, and he doesn't come to this site. When I first came here I got a bit confused with the create accounts thing, and I accidentally created two. Now there's always this nagging 'Thunderbird', which is kinda nice, since I don't really use the L17 in my sig or anything. If I could take it all back, I would have just gone with 'Thunderbird'. But the fact remains, the user is there. Now the only other option would be to delete the User 'Thunderbird', which I don't really like because that would mean just anybody could come along one day and steal my name! The other thing would be to switch to my other account, which I don't really like either because I like to feel I've made a name for myself which would be partially lost. So do you see my deliema? As I said before, I don't like to just see the account sit there empty. So do you see my quandry? Tell you what, you've got lots of senority on me, plus you're nearly at the Mod point, (you caught it in TWO minutes! That's awsome man!). So what do you think I should do? The ball's in your court. Thunderbird 19:49, 8 Mar 2005 (MST)
If we delete it, then it would be gone and forgoten, and you could keep Thunderbird L17. I find that's the only way out (unless you want it flipped- keep Thunderbird and trash Thunderbird L17.) The ball has been passed back to you. →FireBird
But that leaves the problem of Someone later coming in and taking the plain, origional, Thunderbird, and passing them off as... More Thunderbirdy than me. Any ideas? 20:12, 8 Mar 2005 (MST)
That's pretty unlikely... I see only one option which is just sticking with Thunderbird L17 and just deleting User:Thunderbird (or, again, flipped). You're in some pickle. →FireBird
But if it existed for so long with Thunderbird just being dormant, can't we just go back to the way it was? Or have I let the cat out of the bag? And it's not that unlikely, there's already two 'Birds' here. And Thunderbird is a very cool name... (Btw, I didn't offend you or anything by being slightly... untrue earlier, did I?) 21:51, 8 Mar 2005 (MST)
I know this- you can only have one user space. If we keep User:Thunderbird and User:Thunderbird L17, then you would have two, even if you do only use User:Thunderbird L17. I think the reason User:Thuderbird was just sitting there is because nobody really new it existed, untill you added that error message.
So, yeah, I think you're going to have to get rid of one or the other. (Oh, and no, I'm not offended.) →FireBird

[edit] The Mile Revision

Sorry if you didn't think it was trolling. If you know for sure that the toolbar does what it claims and does not contain adware, then it should remain. If not, it's spam, in my opinion, and this goes for nearly every toolbar except Google's. The user also went on the WikiTroll for the same reason, but obviously that can be removed...

In my opinion, even Google's toolbar is adware. Adverts pay for service, one of those could be infected.
It does not contain adware, and it is not spam. This fun fact is true, I checked it myself. I have removed this IP from the WikiTroll list and added his fun fact back. →FireBird
OK, doubly sorry then! Most of the time people plugging "special animations" you can see with a certain program are spammers. Guess I was too quick to jump to conclusions. Aurora Szalinski 16:33, 8 Mar 2005 (MST)
No problem. Trust me, I've made plenty of mistakes here. →FireBird

[edit] Character Popularity

Hey, remember that popularity chart you supported in the main page talk? Well, I went and made one, and I just think you should know that, because if you hadn't said that I should do it, I probably wouldn't have gotten it done.

So anyway, it's in the Interactive section of Fanstuff, if you want to check it out. --Joshua 19:17, 9 Mar 2005 (MST)

Awesome. I'll check it out right now. →FireBird

[edit] You Rock

Thanks firebird for giving me the updates on my page and told me what i was doing wrong

One more time


pertmywert[[]] 00:16, 13 Mar 2005 (MST)

No problem. And thanks. →FireBird

[edit] Questions from stotheb

Um...I'm knew to Wiki, whats a troll?--stotheb 16:22, 13 Mar 2005 (MST)

Fist of all, welcome to the wiki, stotheb!
To answer your question, a troll is a nasty person (usually with no username) who defaces an article or document just for the fun of it- trying to annoy us, I guess. Trolls will get blocked by an admin if they deface documents or articles enough times. →FireBird

[edit] To Be Deleted

Wassup? My man, FireBird, I'll fix the name of The Brothers Homes page, but I will ask you not to delete it. Your probably thinking what is this ten-year-old asking from me, well I work for The Brothers Chaps. I tend to put pictures of homestar, pom-pom, and strong bad on my stuff and putting t-shirts on and stuff like that, I was the one who sent the strongbad Email, funny and I know a lot about it I'd be willing to take a quiz rater than deleting that! Please don't delete that! Technochocolate

One, I can't delete it. I'm not a sysop.
Two, I'm having a hard time beliving you work for The Brothers Chaps. Just because you put a character on your personal t-shirt and other things of yours doesn't mean you work for them. Just because you sent in the email funny doesn't mean you work for them. And just because you know a lot about Homestar Runner doesn't mean you work for them. Besides, even if you did, it wouldn't help you in this disagreement- have they told you that Homeschool Winner, Homsar and Homestar Runner are all brothers? Did they tell you to create a wiki page about them and call it "Brothers Homes". I don't think so.
And we're not going to hold a quiz over it, for that would be silly. If we held a quiz over it, we'd probably end up having a quiz for everything that is pending deletion, which would also be silly. But I'm willing to discuss this over at the discussion page of this article. →FireBird
