[edit] Picture Text

On my user page, I'm trying to get the text "One of My Favorite Game Consoles" underneath the picture of the Nintendo DS, but it's not working... any suggestions??? --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 19:40, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Template for Customized Welcome

Am I allowed to make a template like this: "{{subst:User:RJMT/welcome|~~~~~}}" to make my own customized welcome like I saw before from someone else's talk page? --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 04:48, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Yes, although the page would be at User:RJMT/welcome. The "subst" is a special command that you use once you've set up the template to copy the text of your template to the page instead of just a link to the template. It's used in cases like these. — It's dot com 04:52, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Is the code that I put on my user page correct?? --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 05:31, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Yes, it's just perfect. — It's dot com 12:38, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Kool! Thanx! --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 18:55, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] 3 pics on the same line

Is there any way that I can get 3 pics on the same line on my user page??? --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 18:08, 6 Aug 2005 (UTC)

At least two ways:

  • Set them up as thumbnails all with the left attribute:
Excardon me
The Poopsmith speaketh?
I remember learning that in school

  • An image gallery:

Edit your page to see the source code. — It's dot com 18:55, 6 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Kool thanx --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 20:12, 6 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I told you wrong. It should be "clear:both" instead of "clear:all". I have fixed it on this talk page and on your user page. Sorry for any confusion. — It's dot com 17:06, 15 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Your Sig

First of all, it's generally considered useful to have a link to your User and/or Talk page in your sig. Secondly, you aren't actually linking to your Contributions page properly. As I recommended here, try a link to Special:Contributions/RJMT. --Jay (Talk) 04:04, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Hey Rebecca. I fixed your contributions link on one of the STUFF pages as well as some of the code for your color. Generally, if you want to go by a name other than your official username, then just go by it and don't worry about explaining it in a footnote. As long as you do it consistently, people will make the connection. Also, a good practice is to place long signature code on a sig template, like this: {{User:RJMT/sig}}. Then all you do to sign your name is put the braces and the code in between in your preferences. — It's dot com 04:18, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this kinda stuff. I don't exactly know what ur sayin about all that sig templates and stuff... mind if u explain it 2 me??? -~Rebecca~ Username: RJMT 04:25, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  1. Click on the (currently red) link in Dot com's above message.
  2. Create your sig however you want on this page.
  3. At the top of the page is a "Preferences" link. Click this.
  4. Where it says "Your nickname (for signatures)" type two curly braces, "User:RJMT/sig" (without quotes), and two closing braces.
  5. Save it. Whenever you type three or four tildes in a row, it will automatically add your sig while taking less space in the editing box. Also, if you change your sig (on the template page, not your preferences), it will change EVERY instance of your sig. --Jay (Talk) 04:30, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)
That's awesome! Thanx! -arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 04:38, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Now if only I knew where that blank line was coming from... (there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with your sig template...) --Jay (Talk) 04:42, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Blank line?? --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 04:45, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Eh, fixed now. Either I fixed it when I made a small edit to your sig (nothing that changes its appearance) or it was just an odd glitch. --Jay (Talk) 04:48, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Well thanx for fixing whatever it was!--arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 04:49, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I like your new sig font. :) — It's dot com 04:25, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

Oh! Thanx! :) --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 00:23, 10 November 2005 (UTC)
Wow, you really need to check your messages more often. ;) — It's dot com 00:25, 10 November 2005 (UTC)
Hehe... I guess so! --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 00:27, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Link using images

I have another question about my sig! I want to put the little speaker thing from here on my sig, but I want it to link to my talk page... how would you do that?? --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 00:07, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I don't think you can use an image as a link unless it's already uploaded to the wiki. External images can only be inserted inline. — It's dot com 00:22, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)
ok I uploaded it (Speaker.gif) Now what do I do??? --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 00:31, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I think I told you wrong. Gimme just a sec... — It's dot com

Testing. — It's dot com 01:09, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Okay, so far I can get it to work for things like contributions (that's what that is above), but so far not for talk. — It's dot com

When I use the talk link, here's what I get: ← click on that link and it will take you to my talk page. I'll keep looking...

If I try to link the image to anything except a special page, it doesn't work. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or if it is an actual technical limitation. Do you have an example of anyone else who has done it so I can see how it was done? — It's dot com 01:27, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Well I found one that had the pics linking to something, but they were only the special things. If you want to look at them, here's Venusy's sig. --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 16:07, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, that's the one I was using yesterday to try and make it work. Hmm. If you see another one, let me know. — It's dot com 16:15, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I tried to do that link-picture thing, and Rainer tried to help me out. His answer is here, do with it what you can. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 00:21, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Thanx! I'll try to get someone to help me with that, because I really don't understand it. Once I get an answer, I'll tell you, Some HSR themed username if you still need that info! --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 00:30, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)
That would be awesome. I got that answer and didn't get it either, and since I didn't think it was that necessary I didn't follow up, but if you get it you are far wiser than I. I offer you good fortune and encouragement on your quest. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 00:34, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Well even if I do eventually understand it, I probably would figure it out with a lot of help! --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 00:46, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)

By the way, I moved your discussion to the FAQ. I didn't notice that other thread above. Oh, well. — It's dot com 02:42, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Here is the combined code from the various replies on the FAQ (thanks to Tom and others):
<span class="plainlinks">[]</span>
I'll sign this post using code like that so that you can see how it looks. The "plainlinks" part removes the external-link arrow [] after the speaker, but it does leave a white gap. Hope this helps. — It's dot com Speaker.gif 06:43, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)
OMG! thanx a bunch! :) --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 00:51, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Did u suspect me?

jus' wondren, r u the person who suspected me of deleatin the sandbox line thingy on a different user? cuz if u did, ur wrong man. --Bubsty

NOTE TO ANYONE WHO SEES THIS: Er... don't see this. That was a stupid comment I made when I was new to the site and suspecting completely innocent people. (I still didn't do any trolling!). — talk Bubsty edits 03:11, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Wow, thanks!

Thank you sooooo much for including my fanstuff Runner Runner Revolution in your user page! Also thanks for the song! (=Pixelated=)

You're welcome very much! --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 00:03, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Two personal images?

I noticed you are linking to two non-Homestar-related images on your userpage and just want to politely direct your attention to our policy that only one personal image is allowed per user. You're free to use one of these images but the other should be removed from your userpage and marked for deletion. Thanks. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 19:13, 19 Sep 2005 (UTC)

oooo.... sorry I didn't see that article before! I deleted the Nintendo DS pic (Image:Nintendo DS.jpg) from my user page, so you can go ahead and delete it. Thanx for notifying me! --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 22:41, 19 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Aw, I always liked that one. But, delteeted! — It's dot com

[edit] Hi!!

You can always use external sources (like that image thingy magiggy), to post external images can you not?
Image thingys:

On another note:

I noticed that your The Cheat sticky note pic overlaps your "I want new messages" thing. I can fix that for you (or tell you how), want me to? Unless you did that on purpose...

--Stux 01:33, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Ok I'd like to explain my last post. When I first saw your page I noticed the aforementioned overlap in my page. Just recently I noticed another inconsistency in a page, thinking it was some formatting problem. It turns out that the browsers were interpreting the tags differently. I currently use Firefox as my main browser. I checked your page and all three of the Mozilla, Netscape, and Opera Browsers overlap The Cheat with the messages thing; while IE displays it correctly. It is not something I have liked about browsers but it is there anyway.
I can still fix it for you so that it's a little nicer but I'll leave that up to you. --Stux 19:19, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)
I use the SBC Yahoo! DSL Browser, so I wouldn't know what is wrong, but might I ask if you would please edit my little overlaps so it looks good on your browser? Thanx in advance! --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 23:35, 3 Oct 2005 (UTC)
It was my pleasure! And thank you for allowing me to make that change. I've checked it on all 4 browsers and it looks great! As a matter of fact all I had to do was copy one of your <br ..."clear"> tags that you had in that section and put it in the right place. If you ever wanna see what I was talking about feel free to download Firefox or Netscape (if you can and want to) and browse your history. Anyway, it's too bad browsers can behave funkily like that. Take care and have a wonderful day! --Stux 03:10, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Games

If u like RPG (Role-Playing-Games), then go to [1] its good!

[edit] Hi

Just thought that I'd leave you a new message.--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 20:48, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Yes

Yeah, you're doing the Shorts thing right. Bluebry 01:36, 6 February 2006 (UTC)

Oh, wait, that's a big toon. Oh, well. Don't worry 'bout it. Bluebry 01:37, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
Wait, something's not right here. Click edit on the section Hi (just above this one.) It shows the edit propmt for this one on Firefox. Bluebry 01:40, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
Yeah. I just noticed that when I was trying to edit this section. It does that on my SBC Yahoo! Browser also. Hm... I wonder what's wrong... --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 01:43, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
Ask Jeeves. No, I'm just kidding. Ask someone who fixes stuff on the wiki, like a sysop, User:JoeyDay, or GrapeNuts. Bluebry 02:37, 6 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Thanks

Hey, thanks fo pawticipating in Bwuebwie's pow. And you voted for me! Homestawe...Wunnew.

Thanks for freakin' addin' a holiday toon...mothers day!

No prob. --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 23:32, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] gif

ty for the complement on the gif. i originally made it for a trillian emoticon, and included a "meh" sound effect. but for some reason trillian didnt like the xml changes i made, and i would had to send the xml, gif, and wave to everyone i would have used it with.... that was the first and largest one on my user page. Too large for a sig, though, so i smallerized it. btw im on runescape also, as csours, but i havent been on for about a month now. You want your speaker animated? csours 04:16, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome. In response to the speaker offer... sure if it isn't any trouble! That would be great! In response to the Runescape comment, I haven't been on Runescape for months now so you probably wouldn't see me anyway. I'm more into MapleStory. --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 04:20, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Image:speaker-noise.gif meh, it dont look great.... changed it a lil bit and it looks much better to my eye csours 04:50, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

On the page of the speaker, it says that its a personal image belonging to you... I'll just change the page so it says that its my personal image unless you want it in which case just switch it back. --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 23:43, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
Sure, i just had it as mine so it wouldnt get baleeted. csours 06:02, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
The cheat is dancing to the music. or doing jumping jacks to the music... csours 06:03, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
Wow. You're so awesome at making those animations and such. How do you do it? --arrow4.PNG~Rebecca~ RJMT speaker-noise.gif 06:29, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] I think I fixed it!

The proper tag to make text big in MediaWiki is...well...<big>. The bigger you want it, the more times you want to want to use it in a row: <big><big><big><big> creates some pretty big text and lots of ways to screw up closing it right. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 05:09, 8 February 2006 (UTC)EDIT: I just tested it, and that did fix it! Now that comment that was causing the problems is displayed just the way (I think) the person who left it for it to. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 05:11, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
