[edit] Color Fonts

Hey Fire, my trusted compadre. I have a question/task for you, that I'm hoping you can help me with. Since you came up with the cool sigs idea, perhaps you know how to change the color from something obvious, such as just 'yellow' or 'red'. Basically what I'm looking for is a color for my font, still yellowish, but a bit darker, and therefore more readable. Any ideas? Is there some kinda list of the usable colors or something? Thanks for your help, ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 00:02, 8 Apr 2005 (MDT)

I'm sure you could ask or look around on the MediaWiki Help page or the MediaWiki "User Style" help page. I'll keep looking around for more info, but I'm finding out tons of stuff just reading it! →FireBird
A reply to this comment can be found on Thunderbird's talk page. — It's dot com 17:59, 8 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Can you not use HTML Hexidecimal tags? ---erson 00:33, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
From what I'm assuming that is, I think so. But I don't really know what that is, so I'm not sure. You should ask someone who is smart (as in, not me). →FireBird
Yes, you can. But they don't work. --Jay 00:44, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Thanks, Jay. They seem to work on It's dot com's signature, as well as one of Thunderbird's Talk Page section. Hmm. →FireBird
Ah, forget it. I accentally made them really dark instead of really light, forgetting which end of the spectrum was which shade. Never mind. --Jay 00:51, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Oh well. →FireBird
It worked on mine. --Posted by -erson 00:56, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
That it did! It seems Jay's is working, too. →FireBird

[edit] *sigh*

That's not a good commando name.-- 00:14, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Well, I'm FireBird, not Firebert. Oh well. →FireBird
Is that like, a cross between Firefox and Thunderbird? EDSMILDE
I never really intended it to be like that, no. But it does make since. I originally just misheard "Firebert" and called myself "FireBird". →FireBird
So it WAS a bad commando name, basically... EDSMILDE
Yeah, I guess so. I guess I'm just not cut out to have a good commando name. →FireBird
Uhh, FireBird, uhh, I heard about your problem and I think that I can help. This is a tape I made from when I was practicing comando names. Listen to it while you slumber. And tomorrow, you may wake to find that you have a good commando name. Kvb 13:16, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
Sweet! →FireBird

[edit] Sysop

Just letting you know, you have been given sysop privileges. If you have any questions, never hesitate to ask. Thanks. -- Tom 00:32, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Awesome. Thanks! →FireBird
HOLY CRAP!!! YOU'VE BEEN SYSOP'D!!! Seriously man, way to go. You totally deserve it. You've ben plugging away at this Wiki pretty much since it's inception, always watching, tireless in your war against the trolls. Way to go man. (Btw... What's it like? Is your computer glowing now, with a firey glow?) ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 00:45, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Thanks, man. I was almost sure that you were gonna' get SYSOP'D! too. Though I'm still figuring everything out, as far as I know the only thing special you can do is block, delete, protect and easily rollback pages. Oh, and yes, my computer is glowing. Oh so very firey. →FireBird
Mine's got lightning sparking out the sides. It's overwhelmed with the power of the Thundery Sysopness. ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 01:28, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Ah, dangit, my name doesn't have a cool elemental power in it, so my computer's just throwing these "J" things all over the place. (Congrats to you!) --Jay 01:32, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
We're, like, the Three Sysops- fighting trolls all day, every day! We need our own theme song. :) →FireBird
Hey Jay, you could be like.. Blue Jay! That's a bird. Kinda a weak one, but a bird nonetheless. What you need now, is a cool sig like ours. ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 02:18, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Hey, could work. Lemme test. --Jay (Talk) 02:32, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Yea, kinda sucks that the default color is already blue, eh? Maybe try darker blue than usual? You could even change your name, like I did. I always just leave the L17 out, so you could even call yourself 'BlueJay' or something. I dunno if you want to or not though. But yea, work on it. Distinct sigs rock. ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 03:05, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
It's a little lighter than the usual blue, as is. I don't think going the darker direction would help much. I'm usually more of a green person, but with the other avian sysops I took your suggestion. I don't think I'm going to change it to "BlueJay" but I'll tinker some more. --Jay (Talk) 03:09, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC) (Yeah, it's still the same for right now except that I changed the font tags to span tags.)

[edit] New Big Project To Break In Our Newfound Sysopness

Fellow Sysops, I call thee! How would you guys like to help on a big new project I came up with? The idea is on the Main Page talk, at the bottom, and has already been approved by Tom. Let me know on my talk page, especially with a good idea for the page title. Thanks. ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 01:58, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)

What exactly are we trying to do? I didn't really get it. I feel stupid. →FireBird
Did you read my summary at the bottom of the Main Page Talk Page? If you still don't understand, just ask me anything. Don't worry, I feel stupid too usually, with three older siblings... ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 02:16, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Ah. I understand now. I help out. →FireBird
Great! Then let's get this train wreck a rollin'! Tonight! Buuut... What should we name the page? Appearances? Interviews? Once that's figured out, we can start going nuts. ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 02:36, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
{lowly-non-sysop pokes her head in} Transcribing interviews is fun, I want to help! (I've got the second R!OT interview half-done on my desktop.) Aurora the Homestar Coder 02:38, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Can I rudely interrupt and give a suggestion as to what the page/category/website/whatever could be called? "Presentations made by The Brothers Chaps," seems spiffy to me. --Gafaddict 02:41, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Great, you guys are totally in. Wow, who'da guessed that Firebird's talk page is the main hangout on the Wiki? Anyways, basically, one of the biggest things is actually finding and collecting all the interviews known about, floating around on the Net and in our Wiki. And then transcribing of course, the Radio ones. But yea, I can just tell this project is gonna be alot of fun. Hopefully It'll also raise awareness of the NYU Talk Transcription need, and get that underway. So is there a decision on the Title yet though? Gafaddict, maybe you're on to something, but I feel it's a bit long. I think it calls for a one, maybe two word title. Perhaps just 'Presentations'? Or... 'TBC Presentations? Any more ideas? I've only got about an hour and a half before I'm going to bed, and I'm hoping to be a big part of getting it underway first. (3:30 am work comes awfully early...) ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 02:47, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Hmm, how about "TBC Appearances"? Aurora the Homestar Coder 02:52, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
As for the title, "Public Appearances and Interviews" works for me. I'll start on this tomorrow. I'm gettin' real tired and I'm gonna' hit the sack for now. →FireBird
Oh no! We lost Firebird! I like his idea though. Any yays or nays for 'Public Appearances and Interviews', or even just 'Appearances and Interviews'? Or 'Offical Appearances and Interviews'? Think about it, basically I jus chucked the whole idea out there to see if it would be met with a yay or nay. So far it seems the yays have it, so I'll get back to work on it tomorrow after work. Until then, I'm going to bed. ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 02:57, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Mind if another non-sysop interupts? I find in the sightings pagethatthere is qute a few appearances that are more significant than usual, and should be put on another page with less sightings, so that it can attract more attention. As this would include the interviews, why not something along the lines of "Significant Appearances"? -- Posted by: -erson Talk 12:31, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Alright, I'm saying Appearances and Interviews, or Interviews and Presentations? I'm gonna leave it for another half hour or so, hopefully somebody will make the decision for me. If nobody says anything, I'm going with the latter. But the page is always movable later. ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 00:19, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Okie Dokie, glad the page is finally up and running. Sorry I can't help more right now, but I'm going out with my family. Hopefully I'll be able to help a bit more later. ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 01:50, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Page now moved to: Interviews and Public Appearances, to match the Catagory. ⇔Thunderbird⇔ 05:22, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

[edit] loafing

what was wrong with my idea? It is true. (sarry for changing it back. I'm stubern.)--SBEMAILER113 21:12, 23 May 2005 (UTC)

I've already answered your question. Check on my normal talk page for May discussions. —FireBird|Talk
