[edit] Using Show Preview

Hello TMBGLOVER, 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, --DorianGray 14:50, 12 September 2022 (UTC)

Not to jump down your throat but you did it again! Don't worry though, with practice in using the "show preview" button you too can edit like the greats! -Not One of the Greats

[edit] Recent removal of information

Hey TMBGLOVER, I just wanted to let you know that certain information has been removed from your page by an administrator because of our policies about keeping our younger users safe online. Pay attention to that so that you know what you're permitted to share on your page, and what you should leave out. Thanks for understanding, and welcome!

Cool! It’s nice to know that people on here care about the kids in the fanbase. Thanks! TMBGLOVER 13:35, 16 September 2022 (UTC)

[edit] Forum login

Whenever I try to log into the forum, it says something dumb about “a incorrect username” even though I use the same username I use on here. So how’s about that? TMBGLOVER 21:12, 13 October 2022 (UTC)

I created an account for you on the forum just now using the same username and email address associated with your wiki account. You or your parent/guardian should check that email address for further instructions. Be sure you have your parent/guardian's permission before accessing the wiki or the forum. — It's dot com 21:27, 13 October 2022 (UTC)
Nahh, that’s my mom’s email. She said she’s fine with me using it for wiki accounts and stuff. Also, WHAT THE HECK IS THE PASSWORD!?TMBGLOVER 21:33, 13 October 2022 (UTC)
The email should have all the instructions for you. — It's dot com 21:38, 13 October 2022 (UTC)
I don't have access to the email you're seeing. I dunno what to tell ya other than to keep try. Perhaps a parent or older sibling could help you figure it out. — It's dot com 22:06, 13 October 2022 (UTC)

[edit] Adding descriptions

Hi TMBGLOVER. Thanks for your enthusiasm in the descriptions project, but you still do not have the clear to start adding them to toon articles. — It's dot com 17:06, 20 October 2022 (UTC)

Oh, sorry, this was a misunderstanding. I saw them added to emails 1-44 and thought this meant that we had started adding them. Sorry and have a good day. TMBGLOVER 19:50, 20 October 2022 (UTC)
Dude, you need to chill. If a description has been on a page for a while, then just leave it be. You don't need to add them or remove them from any pages right now. — It's dot com 01:00, 22 October 2022 (UTC)
Well, you said “you do not have the clear to start adding these” so I was just following what you said. Sorry! P.S: the links for the content of the day are broke. TMBGLOVER 16:10, 22 October 2022 (UTC)
My telling you not to add them is not quite the same as telling you to remove them. What I'm trying to avoid right now is a bunch of unnecessary edits. Really, though, I might not have said anything if you weren't shouting at other users in your edit summary. Please don't shout. Thanks for the heads up on the broken links. — It's dot com 18:58, 22 October 2022 (UTC)

[edit] Disruption warning

You have asked about installing Ruffle three times, one of which was on a random user's talk page. You have been replied to. While it's definitely something we will look into, and while I'm sorry you can't currently watch the mirrored toons on your phone, it's not a high priority at present. Impatiently spamming this or any other request to multiple pages is considered disruption, and if you continue you may be blocked from editing without further warning. Most everybody around here has a day job and sometimes things don't get done as fast as we'd like. Keep your pants on. For real. — It's dot com 18:50, 28 October 2022 (UTC)
Ok, I’m sorry, I will shut my mouth about this. TMBGLOVER 21:51, 28 October 2022 (UTC)
You're still being rather pushy, like how you insisted it's time to take down the Halloween decorations. Our Halloween decorations haven't come down this early in November since before you were born. The last few years it's been much later. How about you edit for more than two months before you start telling us how to run our wiki. — It's dot com 18:06, 3 November 2022 (UTC)

[edit] Goodbye.

Guys, I’m leaving this wiki at exactly 5:00 PM MDT tonight. Why? Because I didn’t get into the Fan Stumes. You see, all my friends moved away. When I discovered HR, It felt like I finally saw something that understood me, my humour, and my interests. I wanted to get into the Fan Stumes because why wouldn’t I? But now, it just proves one thing. No one in the world gives a crap about me. All my friends moved away, and my fav cartoon creators, The Brothers Chaps, don’t care about my costume. No one, even in Free Country, my happy place, even cares. Goodbye everyone. I’ll see you… like heck I will. (If anyone has any reasons why I should still like HR, please tell me.) TMBGLOVER 15:18, 20 November 2022 (UTC)

I know it's no fun having your friends move away and it must have stung not to be included in the Fan 'Stumes. So, I'm sorry about that. If you want, you can upload your costume and post it here on your user page if your face is not recognizable (you may not post your face here until you're at least 13). Hang in there. — It's dot com 16:35, 20 November 2022 (UTC)
I just… wish that I could have been in it. It would prove I was a person worth SOMETHING in this world, from two people I admire. But… now… what’s the point. TMBGLOVER 17:28, 20 November 2022 (UTC)
Lots of people dress up. They just didn't have room for everyone this year because it's incredibly popular. Chin up and start getting ready for next year. -- 18:04, 20 November 2022 (UTC)
My point illustrated: someone dressed up as a freaking WALL. A WALL, FROM ONE TOON. THAT… WAS WHAT THEY THOUGHT WAS MORE IMPORTANT THEN MY STRONG BAD COSTUME. TMBGLOVER 18:10, 20 November 2022 (UTC)
For what it's worth, the Brothers Chaps don't have anything unique to say about most of the hundreds of Strong Bad costumes they get each year, but that doesn't mean they don't care about them. They chose to feature a wall just because they had something to say about it, not because it was more important. I didn't make it into the Fan Costumes in 2008, but I still cared about Homestar Runner; not because of what the creators thought, but because of what I thought. I won't convince you to stick around if you don't want to, but if you were correct that no one in the world gives a crap about you, no one else would've contributed to this discussion.

yeah, I’m staying. I found I still love Homestar. I just felt a tad disappointed earlier. TMBGLOVER 00:30, 21 November 2022 (UTC)
If it's any consolation, I didn't get in in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2021 (which are all great years I have been a fan), but there is still hope, as Homestar will probably go on until the sun burns out and they will be making Fan 'Stumes every year until then. Don't give up, ----J∃ffJMan 23:14, 6 December 2022 (UTC)
