[edit] bit o help there?

Sup Gfdgsgxgzgdrc, Im here to give you a couple pointers on a few things.
1. Span Tags: Whenever you change the <span style="color:blue;">Color of words. You have to end it with a</span>, otherwise, it'll keep going down the page with that color. If you have more than one span tags, you have to close each of them with a </span>, not just a single tag.

2. Templates you keep using: You also seem to be using unneeded templates. IE: Edit Remove, headline, and some maner of sig type deal.

This one, not that one. We got that? Now gimmie five.

3. Show Preview: I've that you have made several consecutive edits to the same page. I'd like to point out the Show Preview button. It's right next to the Save Page button when you edit. You should use it whenever you are making a lot of experimental edits, for example when you are trying to get formatting right, or checking to se if the above templates exist. Using the Show Preview button is quicker and easier than saving and clicking "edit" again, and will keep recent changes and page histories from being flooded.

That's all that I've noticed, but if there's anything thing else, anything at all, please contact me on my talk page. Keep on tranglin -cash money tc 23:13, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Outdated Conversations

Hey Gfdgsgxgzgdrc; just thought you should know that it is generally advised not to reply to conversations that are more than a couple months old unless you have an argument of some kind to bring up. People are on the ball around here, and things are generally taken care of pretty quickly. basically, pay more attention to the timestamps. if there isn't one, look around the talk post for others that are logically nearby. If the talk post was added in 2006, the discussion is probably dead by now. Also, if you want to put something on the talk page of a user who hasn't been here in a while, on the left side of the screen, right under the search box is a "toolbox" menu. you can click on "User contributions" in that menu and see how long ago the most recent date was. If they haven't been here in a couple years, maybe refrain from putting anything on their talk page. These are just basic guidelines to follow to keep the wiki running more smoothly. The Knights Who Say Ni 05:17, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

You did it again. That conversation is over six years old, and long dead. As the Knights said, it's not advised to reply to these. It's a simple matter to check how old a conversation is, and it's all explained in the message above this. free 15:29, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

[edit] April Fools'

Regarding your recent edit to the Main talk page, it's not as bad of an idea imo as the follow-up edit would suggest. The problem with your idea this time is the fact that you suggested it in the first place. If you spend much time on the forum, it's just like proposed Halloween costumes: suggesting one practically eliminates any chance of it ever being used on the site. It removes the element of surprise. Additionally, as far as i'm aware, the bureaucrats aren't really looking for suggestions, and even if they were, they would not want the suggestions to be publicly announced for the same reason. However, if you believe that it is a great April Fools' Day prank, you are more than welcome to replace your user page with it when the time comes. The Knights Who Say Ni 06:49, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Scalawaggery

"It's", with the apostrophe, is always short for "it is". If "it is" does not make sense, the correct spelling is "its". You wouldn't say "Strong Bad's Computer Exceeding It Is Technical Specifications", would you? --Jay (Talk) 02:23, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Well, "it's" can also mean "it has" but it can not mean "the X belonging to it". See also Strong Bad's Rhythm N' Grammar. — Defender1031*Talk 13:21, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh. I'm so sorry. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 00:56, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Homsar Wiki

Hey Gfdgsgxgzgdrc, I noticed that picture you have of Homsar. It's really funny. I was bored and decided to make an improved one for you, but you don't have to use it though. Hope you like it! Tenerence Love  22:54, 5 May 2012 (UTC)


That. is. AWESOME. Good job. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:03, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Main Page 15

How was the Main Page 15 picture without the button effects better? The other main page pictures have buttons turned on. --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 12:34, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Because it makes the picture look less crowded. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc

[edit] fish i lenz

I fixed the Fish Eye Lens subtitles some time ago and found out today that it was you that broke it. The Gfdgsgxgzgdrc. is GROUNDED. - Catjaz63 22:34, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Oh. Ummm... sorry about that... Gfdgsgxgzgdrc

[edit] Edit Summaries

Hi Gfdgsgxgzgdrc, I wanted to drop a reminder about edit summaries. I wish I had noticed this sooner but almost none of your contributions have any edit summaries. Edit Summaries help other editors know at a glance what it is that your edits are changing. So please don't neglect edit summaries and let the community know what it is that you're working on. Thanks and keep on tranglin'. --Stux 19:00, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Okay! I'll remember that. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 18:11, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
Hey man, just wanted to pop in and offer a friendly reminder about this again. Thanks! — It's dot com 01:03, 10 August 2016 (UTC)
Argh! Sorry about that. Thanks for the reminder. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:23, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Main Page 26 subtitles

Why does Main Page 26 have subtitles? the amount of frames you're listing isn't even on the page for me and none of the buttons use the Flash frames. Is it just me? - Catjaz63 13:52, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Oh. Umm... I tried to make subtitles for Main Page 26, but it didn't work. You can just delete it. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 20:47, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Meat and Cheese Subs

You gonna finish those subtitles? - Catjaz63 00:05, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Oh. Right. Umm... probably not. Nope. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 00:53, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
I did 'em. I can did it twelve times! - Catjaz63 05:11, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
Nice! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 18:37, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] I'm honored, but... it really important enough to redirect "Purple Wrench" to Hremail 62? Are users searching for it a lot?

I mean, I guess Homestar Dinoland does redirect there too... -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■00:29, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Well, it's possible that someone who's new to Homestar Runner might think that the purple wrench is a running gag, so they search it up on the wiki. I see no reason for it to not be a redirect. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 00:32, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Hey man.

Thanks for helping me with uploading pictures. I didn't even know that! Anyway, I kinda need some more help with creating a signature. I dont know how to do that. -Mml554

You should create your signature here. It should have a link to your page ([[User:Mml554|Mml554]]). And maybe a link to your talk page as well. It can also have colors and small pictures (like about this size: ) and other stuff. Just read this to know how to do everything. After you creat your signature, go to "my preferences" and in the text box where it says "Signature", type "{{User:Mml554/sig}}". Then check the box that says "Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link)". Combolations, you have a signature! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 04:27, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

[edit] new update!!!!!

Dude,Homestar Runner's LIVE!! There's a new update!!!! :D Mml554 talk

I know! It's awesome! I'm so excited. Also, your sig is too big. It should be this big: maximum signature size. And it should have a link to your userpage. How about this? Mml554 It fits the requirements and isn't to big. You can also make it different colors if you'd like (Mml554 ) or add a link to your talk page or contributions, or both (Mml554 Talk/Cont). I can design it for you, if you'd like. You can find out more here and also here. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:25, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks man! My only problem is I don't know how to make that my sig, since copy/paste doesn't work.

I can copy and paste it for you. What do you want your sig to look like? Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 03:03, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

The orange one should do.

Okay, I did it. Anything you want me to change about it? Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 19:37, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Nope. Thanks! Mml554 talk

Sorry to bother you, but can you make the picture a link to my talk page? Thanks, Mml554 talk

[edit] Incomplete articles are not necessarily stubs

You nearly doubled the size of that article. (Great! Unfortunately the "Others" section is rather unwieldy and is in dire need of further organization.) Still, that didn't necessarily make it a stub. A stub is an article that is so bare bones that it can't be considered encyclopedic yet. The stub template is supposed to be a cue to the reader that the current content is basically a placeholder. Once there's some real meat to the article, it loses its stub status, even if it can still be expanded quite a bit. Likewise very short articles that can't be expanded because there's nothing else to add are not stubs. They're just short. I did a random sampling of the articles currently in the stub category and noticed that most of them are probably not stubs. Also, edit summaries of articles are in general a poor place to make editorial comments directed at specific users. Cheers. — It's dot com 05:15, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Oh, okay. Sorry, I didn't know that. Thanks! (And it wasn't really an editorial comment directed at you, I was just making an ironic joke.) Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:43, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Everybody Everybody twitter post

Did you make that picture yourself? Pretty dang impressive. — Defender1031*Talk 08:21, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Why yes, I did. Thanks a lot!! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:41, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Subtitle Tips

Hey there! First of all, thanks for doing the subtitles. And so far, they've been great! But I want to give a few criticisms if you're fine with that. First, you should edit in your subtitles in one go. Use Notepad++ (I recommend Notepad++ heavily) or whatever text editor you desire and just type down the whole subtitles and release it in one go. There's really no point in releasing it in segments like with transcripts. Speaking of transcripts, don't include elements in transcripts such as italics on shows or other material like Seinfeld and don't include notes such as {speaking in a southern accent}. Transcripts are supposed to be a secondary source of the toons' actions while subtitles are meant to be a guide to the toons. Subtitles are supposed to simply show what the characters are saying and nothing else. (Besides SFX) Also, speaking of editing, test, test, test. Your last subtitles update has numerous errors in it, including a pretty obvious error with a line's start being before the end of a former line and an odd error where you had a starting bracket in the middle of a line which the all-in-one mistakes for a target. Testing subtitles before release and checking the timings to be as close as you want are good ways to make great subtitles. Other than that... you did a great jorb. - Catjaz63 02:40, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Hey guys Catjaz here. Back again with some new subtitles tips. Hey there. Few more tips. First is that you shouldn't let subtitles hang when the characters are done saying their lines. If the character stops talking, then just end that line there. You can leave blank frames without lines just fine and they'll appear more natural with the character's talking. Second is that you shouldn't let lines hang on the end frames. If a toon stops at 1255 frames, you should end the line, usually the (music) sfx line, at 1254. Alright that's about it. Great job with the subs! - Catjaz63 22:00, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
Yup, 'kay. Sorry. Thanks for the tips! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:42, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Anahnimus Kuntribewtore

Your edit summaries have not gone unappreciated. TheThin 06:07, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

They have now gone appreciated. - Catjaz63 07:13, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
Oh, thanks, guys. That warms my heart. Not enough to stave off the onset of hypothermia, of course. But a month-long coma's nothing I haven't dealt with before. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:36, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Creating redirects for a potential rename

Hey, I've noticed that a couple of times, there has been a discussion of renaming an article, and you've created a redirect in the intended move space to the already existing title. This actually achieves the opposite result than what we're looking to do, since it effectively keeps the page from being moved to that title. (I once tried to move Family Resemblence to the correct spelling of "resemblance" but was informed that I couldn't because the redirect was in place. I didn't know at the time that it was intentionally spelled that way.) Most recently you supported a move from "Keyboard Strong Bad" to "Casio Head Strong Bad", but then you created that redirect back to the original title. If we want to move it, we don't want the "Casio Head Strong Bad" redirect to exist, or it probably won't be moved there, as was the case with The Brothers Chaps' Side Projects with its suggested move to The Brothers Chaps' Other Projects. If you could chill on that for a while, that'd be great. The Knights Who Say Ni 17:32, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

Ohhh. Sorry... I didn't know that. Won't do it anymore. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:21, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Transparent images

Hi, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc. I've noticed you've been uploading images with transparent backgrounds. I question the necessity of that because it removes important context from the images. If you think this is something we should embrace, I'd like to see a discussion on HRWiki:Standards about it first. Even if we do decide to do it, you should not overwrite the old images. Please upload using a new filename instead. — It's dot com 03:06, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

Okay... sorry! I'll remember that next time! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 03:08, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Whoa

Wow, I didn't realize you were CoolGuyBug from Scratch! I'm i-like-luigi, by the way, if you didn't already know. -- Mml554 talk 23:42, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

[edit] About "Cut it out"

Hey. Just thought I'd mention something to you: Usually, telling a troll or vandal to stop won't help. Many of them actually like it when people are angry or annoyed at them, so in some cases, it may only encourage them toward more trolling and/or vandalism. Usually it's best just to make a simple edit summary like "rv/v". Anyway, thanks for the reverts, and keep on tranglin'. Heimstern Läufer 06:20, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Ah, thanks. Sorry, I didn't realize that. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 07:16, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
FYI, I have changed the summary to be simply "rv". Cheers. — It's dot com 17:06, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Transparent images improval

Please improve the transparencies on humidibot.png and AWFy.PNG. I can see visible pixels around both images. -- 21:43, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

A'ight. Thanks. I did those when I was still inexperienced at transparentizing stuff, and before I started using a Flash decompiler. I'm sure I could do better now. In fact, there are a few more images that could be improved. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 06:41, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Thanks

Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for cleaning up my edits yesterday. It's been quite a while since I edited the wiki, I just saw an unfinished project that seemed easy to work on and did a bunch of them when I had some free time. Freshasabagel 04:13, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks! I mean, you're welcome. I mean... both. Nice job on those descriptions, by the way. They're really good. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 04:53, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Replacing the content of an image

Hello. I'd like to direct your attention to File:SB bathroom.PNG and File:LaundryRoom.PNG, which are just two examples of images that you've replaced recently. I don't have a problem with updated or stitched-together versions of images, but if the content of the new image is dramatically different from the previous version, the new version should be uploaded under its own filename, especially if the old image has stood for years. With rare exceptions, we should completely overwrite an image only to improve some technical or compositional aspect of the image without changing the subject. — It's dot com 23:42, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

Okay, thanks! I understand, but I'm not quite sure why this is so important. If I simply replace the content of an image, hardly anything else will have to be updated. If I upload it under a new name, I'd have to replace the name of the image on all of the pages the old version was used on, and the old version will be unused and have to be deleted. If the image will only become useless, why not just change it instead? Replacing the content will have the same effect on the pages, but with less work, and nothing will have to be deleted. Additionally, both images are only used on two pages, so replacing the content won't make too much of a difference. Anyway, I'm fine with this rule, and I'll remember to follow it in the future, but I'd just appreciate an explanation. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 00:56, 4 September 2017 (UTC)
We would not delete the old versions. It's not hurting anything for them to stay on the server. (In fact, from a technical standpoint, the only difference between uploading under a new name and "overwriting" an existing image is a little bit of database overhead; none of the old versions are ever really gone unless we take extra steps. In addition, the only images we tend to delete are personal images.) The problem with uploading noticeably different content over a longstanding image is that it makes it impossible to properly view a previous version of a page. We also never know when an unused image might become relevant again. — It's dot com 01:31, 4 September 2017 (UTC)
Okay then. Now I understand. Thanks! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:37, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Look here...

Look here bud... My contributions were worth while... OK? (My notices and legal stuff were kinda stupid... BUT STILL!) The reason I edited that "FeedBruner" Article was because none of the "Old Feed Content was not old and is still on the FEEDBRUNER! So I suggest you all get with the program, and by "program", I mean the guidelines set forth on... Er... Eeeerrr... OH YEAH!! (Oh wait I don't own that website... DOH! Don't go on it you won't find me there... I was just... thinking... of a website... to use...) Anyway! My main point is, please at your immediate convenience, talk to me at my talk page, so we can deal with this matter. Hows that? Huh? I may be a kid, I may be naive, I may be stupid, I may of only joined this wiki yesterday! But I'm very political and kinda know my law stuff! OK?... M'KAY!?!? CoachZiscool1978 (Man now I feel like Derek Savage, I gotta stop getting angry at miniscule things...)

Errrr... little bit aggressive there, CoachZiscool... However, his edit was correct; the FeedBurner page does, in fact, list all of those allegedly "Deleted" entries. --Jay (Talk) 20:26, 4 September 2017 (UTC)
Wait, what?! Okay... that's weird. I distinctly remember seeing CoachZiscool's edit, checking the FeedBurner page, and seeing that the old content wasn't there before reverting the edit. I dunno, it might've had something to do with my browser cache... maybe I just didn't check thoroughly enough... I'm not sure what happened there. So I guess you were right. Sorry about that.
Also, no need to be so aggressive. Were you frustrated about the message I left on your talk page? I wasn't mad at you in the slightest, I was just giving you some pointers. Just trying to help you out, that's all. But if you were kind of angry about your edit being reverted by me... yeah, that I can kind of understand. I might be a bit frustrated if that happened to me too. I'm still not sure how I missed those old messages.
Also also, I'm not sure what the "defacements" box-style-type on your userpage is all about. I've never edited your userpage, much less defaced it. The only other person who has edited your userpage is Dot com, and it wasn't a defacement, it was for a good reason. (By the way, I like that Coach Z on your userpage. Looks cool.) Eat a steak, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:31, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

Lets talk ok? I was very mad at what you "did" to me, and... I guess the anger got over me a little... bit... yeah. (Thats what I'm going with) But I'm sorry if what I did was upsetting to you... I just fight back when I'm mad. On a higher note, You like my Coach Z? I took a lot of care into making look unique so I wouldn't be a user with a boring Coach Z... CoachZiscool1978 08:16 5th September 2017 (UTC) PS: The whole thing about "So I suggest you all get with the program" thing is just edited quotes from Marzipan's Answering Machine 17.2

I should point out that if you had included an edit summary stating why you made the change to that page, this could potentially have been avoided. Edit summaries are especially important when the reason for a change isn't obvious, and edits that outright remove data without explanation are often reverted with prejudice, at least until we can figure out what's going on. Edit summaries help us do that, so please use them. — It's dot com 18:13, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

Ok I'll take note of that... CoachZiscool1978 21:54, 5th September 2017

[edit] Because I can't put it any better than It's dot com did that one time

Take a look at this. It was in the aftermath of this catch by a new user.
Last night, a new user was trying to help the wiki, but his procedure was a little off. Like DC did in the above links, I was trying to give him an opportunity to get it right. I wasn't expecting you to do it for him. Basically, if a new user has an opportunity to gain some practice, you should let him have the chance. Just some food for thought. The Knights Who Say Ni 20:15, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

I'm sorry. That didn't occur to me. Thanks, I'll try to remember that! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 20:51, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

...And oh man are my fingers tired! I liked it so much. It's really funny and well made. One of the best user creations I've seen here! How long did it take you to all this? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 07:19, 25 November 2020 (UTC)

Thank you quite much! It's nice to know someone's played it. It probably took some hours, most likely over the course of several months. (I didn't really keep track of the time I spent on it.) Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:37, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

[edit] Template:@

Just wanted to say a quick thanks with regards to your template work, and more specifically about the {{@}} template. Turns out the template helped me inadvertently fix an issue! In this edit I switched to using the template and didn't notice until I was checking the preview that the old link was incorrect! So pretty cool beans! --Stux 13:33, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Thank you, and you're welcome! Those beans are quite cool indeed. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 20:09, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

[edit] Glitchy Glitches?

Hi Gfd,

I noticed that a lot of entries had been removed from the Stinkoman 20X6 Glitches page. (The RC shows a 1354 character reduction which doesn't balance out with the 272 character increase in remarks.) Were those removed because they were no longer an issue in the latest version of the application? Or were they never an issue in the first place? Or were they perhaps out of scope from what the page should cover? I started trying to go over them but realized many of these needed to be played through and/or carefully reviewed. I just wanted to get your rationale since a somewhat significant portion of content ahd been removed. Cheers, --Stux 07:46, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

Sorry! That edit ended up being much more significant than I anticipated, and I really should've split it up into multiple edits. The character reduction was also much more than I expected, and I was very surprised to see such a large number. But I'll try to describe everything that might have caused that:
  • I removed the "Part 1", "Part 2", and "Boss" headers for each level, as there was very little reason to divide such short sections. I also removed the "Flash Related" header, as it only contained one fact.
  • I shortened many long and/or redundant sentences, so that might account for some of the removed characters.
  • Some glitches didn't quite qualify as glitches and/or were already listed on other pages (e.g. Stinkoman can fall to 1-Up's level in 4.1 and 4.2).
  • Some glitches were mentioned multiple times (e.g. the explosion animation pausing), so I removed one of the instances.
  • As mentioned, I moved a small group of facts to Remarks.
So, it was a lot of small things that added up to a massive character reduction. I hope that clears it up! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:21, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Yes! It does! It makes sense now to see that there was a lot of repetition in the text and among entries. Thank you! --Stux 21:35, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

[edit] Discord issues

I know i asked you a few weeks ago on discord to send me those scans of the 2011 calendar, um, my discord broke. I was Potatogilz, by the way. I got locked out and can't get back in without deleting my account, so, 2 weeks from now is when I will be able to get back to discord. Just letting you know the only way I can. ----J∃ffJMan 15:19, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

Oh, okay. That's fine! I sent you the images, so they should be there the next time you log on (assuming you'll be using the same account). Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:10, 5 January 2022 (UTC)
Actually, that's what I was trying to tell you, I will have to delete my account entirely, so... may want to send those again when I get my new one, which I will publicly announce on the Hrwiki discord ----J∃ffJMan 22:35, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

I'm be's back! Send on back those hustlesome jpegs on over any time you want, Gfdrxerm'n! ---J∃ffJMan 19:11, 20 January 2022 (UTC)

[edit] how did you do that?

I was looking at your April Fool’s gags, and HOW IN HECK DID YOU MAKE THAT TEXT ADVENTURE? TMBGLOVER 00:00, 22 November 2022 (UTC)

I figured out a scrolling method that allows one text box to be visible at a time, then chipped away at the game in a Notepad document over the course of a few months. Then did it again for the second one. Glad you enjoyed them! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 00:18, 22 November 2022 (UTC)
is it easy to make? I might do it for April 1st, (with you credited with the idea, of course!) TMBGLOVER 00:22, 22 November 2022 (UTC)
I found it relatively easy, albeit time-consuming due to the scope. It helps to have some knowledge of wiki formatting — try looking at the source code to see what it would be like to make your own. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 00:53, 22 November 2022 (UTC)
Ok! Are you Ok with me using the idea? I’ll credit you with the idea. Edit: THAT WAS WAY TOO COMPLICATED. I’ll do something like edit my user page to something funny. TMBGLOVER 01:01, 22 November 2022 (UTC)
I’m playing Thy Wikiuser 2, and what is the answer to the PIN Easter egg? I haven’t been able to complete it, no matter what I’ve tried. TMBGLOVER 17:07, 22 November 2022 (UTC)
Try consulting the Downloads article for clues. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:16, 22 November 2022 (UTC)
I DID. NOTHING! Every time, “It says #WRONG PIN! I bet you stole this card!” And it won’t let me enter more then 1 number! Could you please tell me? TMBGLOVER 23:48, 22 November 2022 (UTC)
Re-read the entire first bullet point on the Easter Eggs section again. You may have missed a step. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:59, 22 November 2022 (UTC)
I'm sorry to bother you again, but does TW2 always end with Homeschool Winner burninating you? TMBGLOVER 00:55, 26 November 2022 (UTC)
No. You may have to utilize some of the skills you've picked up along the way... Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 02:21, 26 November 2022 (UTC)
Oh, I got it now. Bye! TMBGLOVER 18:31, 26 November 2022 (UTC)

[edit] help with the first clue?

I cannot find a word with "bovine" overlaid, if a word on top of a word is what you mean. help? I wanna be the TMBGLOVER too! 19:44, 1 April 2023 (UTC)

There is a wiki article with drawings of bovine overlaid on an object. This object is the same as the 18th word. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 20:54, 1 April 2023 (UTC)
I tried, I really tried, but I might need another hint. I poured over every sketchbook sketch, I quadruple counted every word in the Marzipan article (still the generic, really hard to narrow down "tall"), and I need a hint. I wanna be the TMBGLOVER too! 21:41, 1 April 2023 (UTC)
I guessed Marzipan Beef Reverser but I dunno. This Gfdgsgxgzgdrc person is a good riddler. — User:HoveringSombrero
Well, starting at the page The Only Girl, I counted eighteen words and got the word "lampshade". We have an article about a Cow Lamp. Then, I looked in the history for the Cow Lamp page and saw the page was created with a timestamp of 22:47. But I still don't know exactly what I'm supposed to type to get where I should be going. (Typing "cowlamp" by itself led me to an Amazon page selling a novelty night light in the shape of a cow. Adding numbers led me nowhere). -- 22:33, 1 April 2023 (UTC)
OK, [insert IP address] I get it now. (I’m autistic, so I do overcomplicate things sometimes) I’m trying to figure out wether to put “8” or “22” after the tiny url thing, but they returned a 404. I wanna be the TMBGLOVER too! 22:49, 1 April 2023 (UTC)
Using a 24 hour clock, 22:00 is actually 10 PM. (22-12=10). But neither number worked for me. -- 23:04, 1 April 2023 (UTC)
Carefully read the wording on the first clue. You'll want to type both the word and the number together into a specific URL, similar to the first link: Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:15, 1 April 2023 (UTC)

[edit] Not to be a bother, but...

Your page is still the april foolin' one, I noticed your sig says 13 years of Gfdgsgxgzgdrc on it, so I was wondering if you had any userpage anniversary plans in mind. (You know, the 13th year is the dollop of sour cream year ----J∃ffJMan 14:54, 20 April 2023 (UTC)

Yep, I'll change my page back to normal soon... it's already been solved once, but it doesn't hurt to give some others more time to figure it out. And no, I usually don't do anything for my userpageversary, but thanks! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 20:37, 20 April 2023 (UTC)

[edit] WOW

It's been 38 days since I started on your April Fools riddle, and HOLY COW that was insane!!! You must have planned this for months! I gotta say, no new Homestar toon on April Fools was disappointing, but this riddle (sorta) made up for the lack of new Homestar. How did you come up with all those clues??? — HoveringSombrero (talk) 17:52, 8 May 2023 (UTC)

Thank you! Unlike the text adventures I had made for previous April Fools' pranks, the planning and setup was done in only a couple weeks this time... I reckon it's a lot easier to come up with clues than to solve them. I just tried to think of every place on the wiki I could hide clues, then added the most difficult ones as optional branching paths. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:52, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
"Knights was attempting to decode the binary"? Yes, I successfully decoded the binary, typing each number into a decoder sequentially, and I got to the last clue that way. I couldn't figure out what you wanted for the other three options. Then I didn't know how to proceed until the type of cipher was identified - even if I did recognize that "aaxua://giyqnva.vvq/" translated to "". I was asking about the encryption on the last clue when I said that. So, "Knights had solved the binary on clue #7d" would have been more accurate. But, as I said before, I wouldn't have gotten past the first two clues without the first part of the thread on TMBGLOVER's talk page. And it didn't occur to me to search the Wayback Machine to find the number of orphaned articles on March 1, 2010, although I did think you were asking about the line in italics. So, thanks for that clarification, and well done with the adventure. The Knights Who Say Ni 05:33, 9 May 2023 (UTC)
Additionally, since you've created a number of intricate April Fool's pranks over the years, I might suggest creating a subpage to document them rather than having a single edit in your user page's history. The Knights Who Say Ni 14:35, 9 May 2023 (UTC)
Right, sorry, I missed that part when I was reading the discussion again. Thanks for reminding me! Also, the intention was that the revision would be linked on my userpage as if it was a subpage, but an actual subpage sounds like it might be a better idea now that I think about it. I'll be sure to note your achievements more accurately when I get to that! Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:15, 9 May 2023 (UTC)

[edit] No Mere Anonny

Thanks for writing about my contributions on your April Fools page. However, while I've been contributing to the wiki anonymously for a very long time, and I really prefer to keep my identity a secret, as a right-perpendicular bookstacker I have an objection to being referred to as "they" or "their" because I'm only one person. (I have no objection to "he or she". I'm definitely one of those). Don't worry about misgendering me. I get that a lot in real life, too. -- 02:20, 1 December 2023 (UTC)

[edit] Maybe we need a checklist?

In response to this edit: I don't think we have a checklist that says "when there's a new toon, be sure to update all these pages". And I'm pretty sure there are several pages that need updating. Perhaps we could create a new checklist? --Stux 19:09, 22 May 2024 (UTC)

Yep! It's at the top of Talk:Toons. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:42, 22 May 2024 (UTC)
Oh, man! It's clear I completely forgot about it! Thanks Gfd! :D --Stux 12:42, 27 May 2024 (UTC)
