[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[edit] Outdated Conversations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.

[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 v.2017 (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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont)

[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... Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont)

[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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 00:53, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
I did 'em. I can did it twelve times! - Catjaz63 05:11, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
Nice! Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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! Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 04:27, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

[edit] new update!!!!!

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

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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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? Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 03:03, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

The orange one should do.

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

Nope. Thanks! Mml554

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

[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.) Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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!! Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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! Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 22:42, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Anahnimus Kuntribewtore

Your edit summaries have not gone unappreciated. The thing Let's talk 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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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! Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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 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. Gfdgsgxgzdrc (Talk|Cont) 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)
