Oh Yeah Yeah

[edit] Brilliance

You sir, are quite a genius. I was trying to figure out a good way of keeping the two Inside Jokes lists the same. Your solution for its sister page, Running Gags, is perfect. Therefore I copied it on Inside Jokes. Thank you very much, and keep up the good work. Thunderbird 00:28, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Thanks, TBird! Organizing Strong Bad Emails in different ways I can understand. But it just didn't make sense to have two lists with identical information organized the same way. We misinterpret "Once and Only Once" around here, but this was a clear case where it fit perfectly. Thanks for the compliment! And I will keep it up! — It's dot com 05:07, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I know, it was kinda a tricky thing. I suggested just making Category:Running Gags the whole page, but Tom said they weren't meant for that. I never thought of just making the page link to the list, instead of being the list. Thanks for thinking of it. Thunderbird 17:17, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Man, you're the man!

How can you not be a sysop? You are one great user. When I read others' talk pages, you are alweys there to halp and give advise. Your edits and comments are alweys constructive and truthful. Your are the awesomest thing ever. Would you write a song about me? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 15:23, 8 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Sorry for not replying sooner (and I don't mean because the database was locked), but things were already in the works (see the thread two down from here), just not yet official. It's been a while since I wrote a song (I've written a few, but it was always for a class), but maybe I'll see what I can do. — It's dot com 17:18, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Manual of style!

Dot com, If I were British, I'd nominate you for a knighthood. I love it! I'll have to see if there's anything I can contribute to the new Manual of Style (although it looks like you've covered it pretty well yourself). You are my doge! Heimstern Läufer 23:43, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

I'm not British, either, so the most I can hope for is honorary membership in the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. That would still be pretty sweet, though. :) — It's dot com 23:53, 8 November 2005 (UTC)
Ah yes, then you could be called "It's dot com, KBE" but not "Sir It's dot com". Just like Andre Previn. (Well, except he's called Andre Previn, KBE.) Heimstern Läufer 08:21, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Mean to young people?

You're my least favorite admin ever.

Well, Bubsty (I was close. See below), one of the things you learn as an admin is that you can't please everybody all the time. I am, however, open to constructive criticism, so I'm a little disappointed that you didn't give me any more to go on than that one line. Or that you didn't at least sign your name. — It's dot com 20:23, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
What? Did Bubsty write that? Has Matt? (talk) 20:37, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
Indeed. EDIT: Actually, his sister said that it was she who wrote the comment.It's dot com
Or perhaps somebody from his computer or something. He did refer to Bubsty in the third person... Thunderbird 00:33, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
How did this person edit da Basement? Didn't you block him for 3 days, TBird? Heimstern Läufer 00:35, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
Yes, he did, but I unblocked the IP, since the edit wasn't trolling or vandalism. — It's dot com 00:38, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
I see. And in response to Thunderbird's comment: I don't know that third person is really evidence it wasn't he; he could have been covering his tracks. What does baffle me, however, is that that IP wrote false information about Bubsty's guestbook being gone, when in fact Bubsty himself removed the deletion tag from his guestbook, something one would think Bubsty would know. Heimstern Läufer 01:14, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
Haha, I just mentioned that point a minute ago. But on IRC- I didn't bother updating my theory here. Thanks for pointing that out. Thunderbird 01:18, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
That was me! Not Erik! And he told me he left the wiki, so I thought he had deleted his guestbook too. Thekillerdynamo 04:03, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
*Sigh*. So much for me leaving. Seems I have some explaining to do. Some things to clear this whole thing up:
First off, I DID NOT write that comment above. I recently showed Sarah the comment you left on my user talk page a while ago telling me to stop using the list of users list to welcome people. Although I really didn't care that much about what you had written, she seemed to think of it as rude and insulting. I assume that comment was her "blowing off steam".
It seems Dot Com thinks Thekillerdynamo is me. If you still have any questions about this whole thing, please tell me. I'll try to explain it.
Finally, I'm really sorry (not to mentioned embarrased), that this whole thing happened. I'll try to have something like this never happen again. (Depends if a certain family member agrees).
talk Bubsty edits 04:22, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
Well, as you can see below, all I knew for sure was that the edits were coming from your house. — It's dot com 05:21, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

You do a lot on this wiki, but you're mean to the young people here. 10, 11, 12, and 13 year olds shouldn't have to act like a 28-year-old! Can't you just be a bit nicer? I think more people would like you then. Please; I'm not trolling - although I did blank your talk page. But that was so you would see this easier. If you revert it (which I'm sure you will) can you at least think about being nicer? Once again, sorry for messing up your talk page. Just please read. Thanks! 04:58, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

PS: I think you're still a good admin. Just show some commen sense. (Of course, I should talk; Look who's about to get themselves blocked!)
PPS: Oh, and about my first edit on this page; I admit that was me. But that was back when I didn't know what a wiki was and didn't know who you were. You aren't my least favorite admin ever. In fact, you're one of my favs! If you want to block me for that, go ahead; I deserve it.
Why don't you log in so we can discuss this. Talking through an IP address isn't the kind of conversation we should be having. I'm not going to block you. If I wanted to block you, I would have blocked your IP a long time ago. — It's dot com 05:18, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
Ok, I made a user. That One User 06:29, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
I don't mean make a sockpuppet, I mean log in as yourself. You have obviously been around for a bit for you to hold the opinion you do, and, looking closely, you are either Bubsty or, at the very least, someone inside his house. So, c'mon now, Erik, Sarah, whoever... log in for real if you actually want to talk. — It's dot com 14:05, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
How did you know? Thekillerdynamo 00:49, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
Hang on now, let me make sure I have this right... You're telling me that someone who has 18 total contributions (as of this writing, none of which are in the article namespace) and to whom the only thing I've ever said is "Welcome to the wiki, Sarah! Ask your brother to show you how to sign your name," would suddenly and for no apparent reason get so annoyed with me as to put this on my page? I'm sorry, but that just doesn't add up. Perhaps you could explain yourself a little... or come clean. ;) — It's dot com 03:37, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
Seems odd right? Actully, I've just seen what you've said to other people (like the thing) and what you said to Bubsty that one time. That was why I said "you're my least favorite admin ever". When you said that thing about user welcoming... something like that. But I'm not mad anymore. Thekillerdynamo 04:01, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
Oh, okay then. Please allow me to speak to your points: Occasionally messages must be posted that are stern because it's urgent that the message be understood. (In the case of the message I sent your brother, it was because of the fact that edit summaries can't be changed, and so we have to be careful what we put in them.) I do try, however, never to be insulting, and as I said way back when, I do apologize if he took it that way. Also, I have nothing against young users, and I will happily give assistance to anyone who needs it (just have a look around this talk page). It should be noted that several of our exceptional users, including a sysop, are quite young, relatively speaking. Even though actual age doesn't matter, I don't see anything wrong with expecting a certain level of maturity from our users, once they've had a chance to get the hang of things. The wiki, after all, is not a toy. I think BazookaJoe put it quite well in his message to The thing when he talked about what the purpose of this wiki is. All of this can only bring us to one conclusion: ...Strong Sad's adopted. — It's dot com 05:21, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Profound Fanstuff Contributions

Hello Dot com. I just wanted to say that you did the best Poopsmith impression ever here! Oh, man. I never laughed so hard! Good day, and keep kickin' sockpuppet butt! ;-) --TheYellowDart(t/c) 21:16, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks! For those who wonder, I really did record it myself. I even got it on the first take! (My impression of Pom Pom, which is also on that page, took several takes to get right.) Talk atcha later. — It's dot com 22:02, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah I saw that. Keep on tranglin. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 22:23, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

[edit] a comment to it's dot com

hey it's dot com, you are awesome. that is all i have to say. 04:03, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, anonny! Every time that I look at myself, I can't believe how awesome I am. I mean, how awesome I aaaaaaaaaaaam... Out of curiosity, what prompted you to say so? — It's dot com 23:57, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
You are awesome for all you do for the wiki. 22:59, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
Now I'm curious, too! Good old Dot com really keeps the inner workings of the wiki going. But most of his awesomeness would not be visible to a "random IP editor" as you once called yourself ;-) How did you notice? And have you thought about creating an accountLoafing 00:51, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
I have been here for awhile, I just haven't thought about creating an account. I just see a lot of good things that It's dot com and some other editors do.

[edit] Awesome

You are awesome. Thank you for being awesome. Yt2005 03:17, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

You are right. Thank you for being right. ... I mean, thanks! — It's dot com 01:39, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
