[edit] Using Show Preview

Hello Jangles5150, I see that you have made several consecutive edits to the same page. I want 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. 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. Thanks,  Loafing 22:24, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Your vote

Hey, your opinion is appreciated but note that the last edit to Talk:The Periodic Table of Candy Elements was in April. I think this vote was decided by now. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:29, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Revenge is no way to go

I see you wrote a comment on the Old-Timey template. It was revengeful since you were trying to get revenge on me for Ketchup and The Decemberween Stick. Please don't use revenge on anybody just because they nominated or deleted your article. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man P.S:Great ideas!

Sam the Man, I'm seeing nothing vengeful in Jangles's comments, just arguments against that template's inclusion. Please assume good faith. Heimstern Läufer 16:23, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Signature

If you want to put {{words+help}} next to your username when you sign your name, you should get a signature. For more help, look at mine or click on signature on the help page. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Jangles, are you listening to me? Please get a signature if you want to put {{words+help}} next your name on a talk page. If you put words+help next to your signature again, I don't know what will happen. It will be nothing bad. Please do so. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
why? What damage is it causing? words means talk, and helps means contributes. --Jangles5150 (words+helps) 20:25, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
No damage at all — creating a preset signature is only a convenience for you, not a requirement. If you decide you want to do this, here are instructions, but you're completely free to keep doing it manually if you want. Laters! Trey56 20:29, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Wait, i don't understand: why was he mad about it? i already tried to make one, like a month ago, and it didnt work.--Jangles5150 (words+helps) 20:30, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Oh, I don't think he's mad — I wouldn't worry about it. What didn't work? I'd be happy to help you out, if you'd like. Trey56 20:31, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
i put some coler in it and changed the font, but when i tried it out it just said user:jangles5150/sig, and thats it. no link or anything. --Jangles5150 (words+helps) 20:33, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Okay — go to Special:Preferences, and make sure that {{User:Jangles5150/sig}} is on the "Signature:" line (and that the "Enable raw signatures" box is checked). Trey56 20:34, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

ok. i will. --Jangles5150 (words+helps) 20:37, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

I did. now what? --Jangles5150 20:39, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Looks like it's working — nice work :) Trey56 20:40, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
How do i put icons and coler and stuff in it? --Jangles5150 20:41, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
You can find all that info at Help:Signature — play around with it, and let me know if you encounter any specific issues, and I'd be happy to help. One other thing I'll mention if you're going to play around with it: right now, your sig is right on the edge of the maximum length. While you're changing it, it would be best if you could make it a tiny bit shorter (e.g. by putting "words" and "helps" in a smaller font). Here's a sigbox to let you know how you're doing:
Anyway, have fun! Trey56 20:45, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Thank you very much. i really appreciatiate it. --Jangles5150 20:46, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
You're welcome :) Trey56 20:47, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
I get angry some times. I'm sorry. I wasn't mad or going to do anything. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

No worries man. it wont let me upload an image. --Jangles5150 20:52, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Hmm — you tried using Special:Upload? What happened? Trey56 20:54, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
No i have not.... but i will. --Jangles5150 20:55, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
It just says '".bmp" is not a recommended image file format.'. soo, what does that mean? --Jangles5150 20:56, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Oh, you need to save your image in a different format, like PNG or JPG. You can do that with MSPaint, I hear, if you're using a Windows computer. Trey56 20:58, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Or Irfanview. Way better then anything! Well, what image do you want? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
im using MSPaint for it. im using an image of homestars head, and the cheat. --Jangles5150 21:01, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
What toon or sbemail? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

i got it off the internet. --Jangles5150 21:04, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

How about these images? and — maybe they're not what you're looking for, but it would save you the trouble of uploading different ones... Trey56 21:06, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
those are the exzact ones i was talking about. --Jangles5150 21:07, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
I'll help you if you need it. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
How about this? Jangles5150 (words · helps) User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
No, get rid of the words helps thing, and make hr's head on the left and link to my talk page, and put the C. on the right and link to my contribs. if its not too much. --Jangles5150
Here's the section that explains what you're trying to do: Help:Signature#Changing the target of images' links. Trey56 21:13, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

It didnt Work. --Jangles5150

What happened? Trey56 21:21, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
I can't really explain. can you just give me the code and stuff and i can copy and paste it into my sig page. --Jangles5150
Sure: <span class="plainlinks" style="white-space: nowrap">[][[User:Jangles5150|Jangles5150]][]</span> will produce
Best, Trey56 21:27, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks man. and you too Sam The Man. --Jangles5150 21:29, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Just one more question: How do i put color in it? --Jangles5150 21:29, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Here's what you're looking for: Help:Signature#Colors and fonts. You can find several three-digit color codes to replace "hexcode" with here. Trey56 21:33, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
It worked. thanks. to both of you. --Jangles5150 21:35, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
No problem. Keep on tranglin, Trey56 21:37, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
No problem. Keep up the good work. Ketchup will be a page with no deletion! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 21:50, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Are you sure

Hey Jangles. I would really like you to join my club. I promise you I will help you with anything you want. If you wanted to be a sysop, would be kind of like me a little. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Sure man, I'll join your club. But your comment about sysops doesn't make sense to me. Thanks again for the help with my sig. --Jangles5150 16:02, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] I got one...

Number one is "Suurender" by Cheap Trick. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 23:02, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, dude! my bands doing that song. try some other ones. --Jangles5150 (words+helps) 19:41, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Ooh, #2 is Office Space — Lumbergh says that line to Milton. Trey56 19:43, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Nice. yeah. thats it. i love that movie. --Jangles5150 (words+helps) 19:50, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Ooh! Ooh! I know numba 3! It's Psycho. Has Matt? (talk) 01:04, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
yep. Norman bates says it. try some others! --Jangles5150 11:52, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Number 5 is Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. -Zerlock1124

Number 4 is from "Dazed and Confused." Some guy called Wooderson said that. Thank you Google. גשמלדרברגן (Geshmalder) 02:16, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

Yes to both of you. --Jangles5150 15:48, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

  1. 1 is South Park and Cartman is saying that quote. Am I right? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
Yep. try some others. --Jangles5150 19:12, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
That last one is from Harold and Kumar go to white castle. DeFender1031 16:09, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
Yeah. thats right. --Jangles5150 16:16, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Member

Alright! Your a member! Please copy the userbox and have fun! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man (P.S) I want to be a sysop and I'm trying to act like one.

Well who doesn't?! I would like to be one, but I don't know alot about wiki stuff. --Jangles5150 16:03, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] I'm right

The "More quotes" #3 is spoken by Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) in the movie Forrest Gump. ¤ The Dang, Pom Pom, you see that? That's a nice golbol. Talk to me. 23:30, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

right. thats like my favorite movie. --Jangles5150 23:31, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
2) Led Zepplin I don't know what the song name is but my guess is "7 to 11" and it's about a guy who likes a girl enough to work that long each day. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 02:01, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
Oh, and it's Led Zepplin 2 on the album (or Led Zepplin II if you're picky) --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 02:02, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
It is led zeppelin, but its on led zeppelin III, and the song is "since ive been loving you". it is about working from 7 to 11. it was voted the best guitar solo of all time. =)--Jangles5150 19:13, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Quote box

Hey there Jangles — I like the userbox you made! Just a couple things. First, you should put it on your user page or your user talk page — this doesn't fall into one of the categories for permitted user subpages#What about user subpages?. Secondly, if you want it to appear outside of the context of a userbox tower without generating those funny lines, just put {| and |} on separate lines above and below the code for the box. Thanks! Trey56 20:10, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Lone Userboxes

Hey there Jangles. First, Let's Go Yankees!^_^ And second, I corrected your userbox quote. A userbox on a page not in a userbox tower are called lone userboxes and should have a {| at the beginning and a |} at the end. I give you this:


Hope this helps. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man

Thanks. I'll change that, when I have time to. --Jangles5150 20:19, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Don't Bite

Hey there Jangles — I think that this was an honest mistake I think it was an honest mistake — Sam didn't substitute his template, so when he said "Feel free to delete this message when you're done reading it", TheDude probably thought he was supposed to delete the actual template. Just wanted to clarify that so that you didn't think that TheDude was necessarily doing something wrong. Trey56 20:35, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Also, you can be sure that it's not a good idea to be aggressive towards newcomers when a sysop has already posted something on their talk page. Please read HRWiki:Welcoming_committee#Don.27t_Bite, thanks. Loafing 20:37, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
Actually, Loafing, I had was the first one to put something about it on there. And about not biting new users: I recall on the first day I joined this wiki, I went and created something called "The Addition Comittee". And I got yelled at, with people saying things like "We already have an Addition Comittee: every user!" and such. And I recieved no sympathy. It was my first day, and I thought "Well, since I'm new, I'll show them my skillz" and I tried to, and I got yelled at for it. The End. Also, how did TheDude find the subpage? --Jangles5150 20:47, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
Looking back at HRWiki talk:Addition Committee, I can see why that was discouraging for you, especially as a new user. Point taken: we can all stand to be more cordial and patient with newcomers.
The reason why it was so easy for TheDude to jump to the template was that when Sam didn't substitute his welcome template, an edit link appeared on TheDude's user page that took him straight there. So, when he thought he was clearing his talk page (as the welcome message invited him to), he accidentally deleted Sam's template. That's why it's important to substitute things like welcome messages.
Anyway, I hoping that clears things up. Talk atcha later, Trey56 20:55, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
Oh. Well ,it's like they say "you learn something new every day" or something like that. A'ight (That's Balmereese for alright), thanks again. Peace. --Jangles5150 20:58, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
guys, i don't what a template or subpage are so it was totally unintentional. I did manage to find my way here... sorry sam, it was an accident. TheDude 20:59, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
Not a problem. Trey56 21:00, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
Man, I feel like a total jerk. I'm not Sam though. I'm really sorry. --Jangles5150 21:02, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
no sweat, don't feel like a jerk, and sorry for calling you sam. TheDude 21:05, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Ok, and I take no offense from being called Sam. He is a very accomplised wiki-user. Also, when I was like 5 or 6, I would always yell at my mom for not naming me Sam. I liked that name. Also, I noticed that you don't yet have a signiture. Take a look at this for details. --Jangles5150 21:08, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

You know, a fancy sig is not mandatory, and not everyone needs (or wants) one. More than once I've seen very new users make a sig identical to the default, and when I mentioned that that was pointless and they ought to get rid of the subpage for it, immediately go spice it up like a fancy sig was a requirement. Sure I have one, but only because it's really long and messy in edit mode when you change the font, which is all I really did. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 08:51, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
It was just a suggestion. I was just thinking that the name "TheDude" would look very awexome. --Jangles5150 10:33, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
Hey there. Just saying thanks for calling me a accomplised wiki-user and to say that TheDude has a very good userpage. I should say this in TheDude's userpage. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man
You are very good with this wiki stuff.I personally don't have the patience to do all that fancy stuff. --Jangles5150 19:23, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] E-mail

Hey Jangles. I was wondering if you had an E-mail address. If you do, please E-mail from The Paper userbox thing on my page. Thank You for understanding, User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 20:35, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

I do have an email address, I did email you, and I also put the email box on my page. --Jangles5150 22:43, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] OMG!!! The quote!!!

"Where'd you get those shootin' skills?" "Grand Theft Auto 3, dawg!"

That is soooooooooo from Malibu's Most Wanted And remember, "Gamecast". So good! - Pants 3000 23:56, 5 May 2007

Also "It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple matter of weight ratios! A five-ounce bird could not carry a one-pound coconut!"

That would be Monty Python and the Holy Grail. A-thank you! - Pants 3000 23:30, 5 May 2007

Those are both correct. Very good. --Jangles5150 16:03, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Grab this while you still can (May 7, 2007)

This is your chance to do up Subtitles:sbemail171/en while you still can . I'm handing the chance over to you after I saw your post over at Trey56's talk page.

Just put a {{pageinprogress}}tag in, and look at the Subtitles article for guidelines.

--Be quick, Addict 2006 22:59, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

P.S. This SBEmail's quite simple, though you may be put in a rush by the many others waiting. As well, be careful with the code. And yes, I will be in check to improve on things further if need be. --Addict 2006 23:01, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

I wasn't looking for something that important to do. I meant stuff like making templates, or working on transcripts, for example. Thanks for the offer, though! --Jangles5150 19:18, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Something to do

Hey there, Jangles. I remembered that you had asked me for things to do, and I thought of one. I just moved two articles: Homestar Peeking to Homestar Runner Peeking and Naked Homestar to Naked Homestar Runner. This means that someone needs to go through the pages listed on Special:Whatlinkshere/Homestar_Peeking and Special:Whatlinkshere/Naked_Homestar and update the links on those pages.

If you're interested, go ahead and work on those projects. The one thing I would suggest is that you leave any links on User or User Talk pages untouched. Also, I'd leave them untouched on Category talk:Homestar Runner running gags, since that's where the discussion originated.

If you don't feel like doing this, just let me know, no problem. I just remembered you were looking for things to do and thought you might be interested. Talk atcha later, Trey56 01:25, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

I'll do it, but mabye not all at this exact moment. I'll see what I can do, though. --Jangles5150 20:10, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
Sounds great :) Trey56 20:54, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
Alright, I'm back. Just saw Spiderman 3. I got the Homestar Peeking thing, but couldn't find the one on The Paper. I'll get the Naked Homestar as soon as possible. --Jangles5150 21:08, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
I got all of them. --Jangles5150 22:02, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
Nice work! By the way, how did you like Spider-Man 3? I'm really looking forward to seeing it... Trey56 22:06, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
Way better then the first 2. The Sandman was cool, as was Venom. I think in Spider-Man 4 there going to put in either Electro, or The Rhino. Personally, I would like to see him fight the Fantastic Four. But it was a very good movie. I'm trying so hard to not reveal anything right now. --Jangles5150 22:10, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Happy B!

Happy 100th Birthday, Strong Bad! I mean 13th. And Jangles. Eat more cake, Trey56 19:38, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. I ate half a cheesecake last night, but I'll still have some more. I like cake. It's good. --Jangles5150 19:39, 15 May 2007 (UTC)
