Do you think it might be worth starting an official monthly award for editors to contribute a requested article? I was thinking something along the lines of offering a "bounty" for articles which been on the list for a year or more or simply an article on a basic topic (e.g. [[Kissing]]). It would be great if someone at [[Uncyclopedia:RadicalX's Corner|RadicalX's Corner]] could help in making a special award. [[User:MadMax|MadMax]] 06:47, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

Re: I want to talk about my Chrome Edit of irefox

Hi

Thanks for correcting me out. Actually I just didn't realized those errors. No need to say sorry, I dont't mind my errors being pointed out, I just wanted to know so that i could improve. Dont worry, you haven't discouraged me in any way. --Hitesh 18:18, 16 October 2008 (UTC) |t~^_^~c 17:36, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Considering username change

This section may be obsolete

I am considering a username change per the discussion on my Wikipedia user talk page. As stated there, I still need to decide on a new username, but as soon as I do I will update this page with my decision. Please explain to me what I need to do to get my username changed; my quick and dirty searching didn't seem to help.

Said Wikipedia user talk page has probably been deleted, and I'm too lazy to check. See User:Pentium5dot1#Introduction for a further explanation. I obviously no longer want to change my username. --Pentium5dot1 t~^_^~c 00:32, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Impolite link to your user page

First, it's a link to User:127.0.0.1, which is, I believe, not your user page. Click it and see.

Second, what makes you think that the reason for that link had anything to do with you user page being poorly formatted? Did I make any indication of such a thing anywhere? I don't see anything particularly ugly or otherwise shameful about your user page or its formatting, although you might want to take a little more pride in being blocked by Wikipedia for such a silly reason. (P.S., I don't think anyone here is going to be bothered by your name having a trademarked word in it. I can understand perfectly that if you change it at Wikipedia you may want to change it here as well, but I'm pretty sure you don't have to unless you want to.)

Third, have you heard of Template:USERNAME? Did you read the submit comment? What user is logged on from 127.0.0.1 right now?

You don't have to respond on my talk page; just do so here and I'll see it. Check out the watchlist feature (click "my watchlist" up top); it's very handy. -- Falcotron16.png !!! ??? 02:07, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

  • In response to each of your points individually:
  1. I failed to actually check the target of the link. However, I feel that it's impolite either way.
  2. Your edit summary mentioned Template:USERNAME, which I failed to examine before posting the comment. Since I was trying to fix my userbox to align to the right, I assumed you were talking about a formatting issue.
  3. Oh, okay, you used Template:USERNAME in the link. May I modify the link just a little bit? I do have enough basic computer knowledge to know that 127.0.0.1 means localhost.

Thank you for your understanding. Pentium5dot1 02:14, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

OK, it sounds like you got it now. What modification do you want to make? (You know, you can feel free to make any modification you want, of course. If it's not funny, I'll change it back, we'll get into an edit war, and we'll both get banned for six months, but otherwise, you can do what you want.) -- Falcotron16.png !!! ??? 02:28, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
    • The modification is already in place, but as the source comment says, I would like some help making it funnier. Pentium5dot1 02:32, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
      • I think it's much less funny this way. Maybe if we remove it from See Also completely, and instead change the caption on the ping image to "OH MY GOODNESS! HE ALREADY HAS YOU!<br>(screenshot from {{USERNAME}}'s computer)"? What do you think? -- Falcotron16.png !!! ??? 03:22, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
        • Approved. Sorry I didn't try hard enough; I seriously considered reverting my own change once I realized it was of poor quality (but I was temporarily busy). Pentium5dot1 06:09, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Location for bug reports

Please go here: User:Pentium5dot1/Bug reports

(This is only a temporary storage place for bug reports that I wish to make about template functionality, etc., before I properly pass them on to an administrator. Bug reports from other users should not go there.)

Thanks

For formatting the Microsoft support colors, I was trying to figure out how to fix it...:) ~Jewriken.GIF 18:59, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

You're welcome. (It was just a matter of an HTML hex color code.) The new blue might be too dark for some people on older CRT monitors to see that it's blue, though; is that okay? Pentium5dot1 05:58, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Well, that would be their problem no? They should have gotten a new one ages ago! ~Jewriken.GIF 06:52, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Odd...

I thought my edit to Mozilla Firefox was creative! Oh well, I guess we can't have everything... --Defender 911 22:00, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

I apologize for not being as nice as possible (that is a link to the relevant Wikipedia guideline page), but just ask any of the other users who are frequently working on the Mozilla Firefox article about the problems inherent with the "new messages practical joke." The joke being overused really isn't the problem so much as the breaking of the recursion. Pentium5dot1 17:58, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
Well, we can't have everything! --Defender 911 01:10, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

HowTo:Get out of Jail

Hello, I was trying to get some votes for this, can you support?--Sir Manforman CUN 13:46, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

For all the work you're doing

Newcookie Cajek has awarded you a cookie!
Now go play in traffic.

You're doing a lot of the "little stuff" around here that I think should go recognized.   Le Cejak <-> (Dec 4 @ 02:14)

Um... Thank you very much. Pentium5dot1 05:31, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Firefox banner ad crashes IE

I just read the discussion page for my image and find this hilarious. What's more, I made it in Microsoft GIF Animator.

However, it wasn't intentional. Do you know why Microsoft GIF Animator would cause this? SteveSims 17:06, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Sorry if the discussion pages did not make clear that I already fixed the problems by reverting the image to an earlier version. The problem was that the image had one of the famous IE-crashing JavaScript code examples embedded at the end of the data, as detected by the Firekeeper extension for Firefox. I did not mean to imply that the image would actually have crashed IE, as I did not test that. Pentium5dot1 18:13, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
Today I tested one of the older versions with IE 7 and it crashes. Also, to be fair, the GIF animator was used on Ubuntu 7.04 with Wine 0.3.9. SteveSims 07:18, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
Would you like more information, such as a hex dump of the offending version? Anyway, the reason I reverted the image was that I didn't want to be too unfair to IE users. Pentium5dot1 18:00, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

re: Please explain edit of Spanish

I restored it to the original because it does have humor, which was judged to be unanimous amongst three other friends who looked at it. I have not made any other edits and I don't edit anonymously, so if someone else restored it as well it's probably because they share the view of myself and said unanimous group. DrunkieSharkie 22:08, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

FYI...

...Carling is a popular beer substitute here in the UK. It retails at around £2.50 for four cans and tastes very much like urine. They have an ongoing series of adverts which follow a "If Carling made X, it'd be the best X in the world" formula that wasn't particularly funny when they first came up with the idea back in, hmm - let's see - about 1645 and has grown progressively more stale since. Anyway, just thought you'd like to know. Keep up the good work in our eternal battle for correct spelling! :-) RabbiTechno 18:16, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

The user who made that edit was not logged in, so I did not assume good faith to the extent I should have. Was that you? --Pentium5dot1|t~^_^~c 18:27, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
'Twas not, and assuming bad faith is precisely what any of us would have done. Just thought I'd share the info, and take the chance to attack the beer I like least in this world. Assume good faith in the case of my previous comment, meanwhile, it was intended as such. :-) RabbiTechno 18:34, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

I read your mind

Looking for this? -RAHB 01:52, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, and sorry for not being more proactive about contacting you, but I wrote an HTML comment (silly me) when I commented on the VFD, saying that it should go under User:Pentium5dot1/Storage facility/Template:Funny. See User:Pentium5dot1/Storage facility for a more thorough explanation. I know this userfication convention of mine is highly nonstandard, and I forgive you for getting it wrong. Should I move it myself or wait for you to do so? Sorry for inconveniencing you. --Pentium5dot1 t~^_^~c 07:36, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
Word. Thanks for letting me know. Have a good one. -RAHB 19:54, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles

I've been talking with User:The Woodburninator on my talk page about improvements to Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles and I was wondering if you had any suggestions? MadMax 18:37, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

I basically agree with the reorganization; however, I would like to mention that you should probably use real level 4 headings (==== ... ====) for the finest subtopic divisions, in order to make things easier to edit. Note that in the future I will be quite busy with schoolwork, so I can't be expected to do a lot of useful work for UN:REQ on a regular basis. --Pentium5dot1 t~^_^~c 02:12, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Also, I am working on modifying the {{search}} template to use the urlencode magic word instead of requiring the editor to add plus signs between words. This should allow us to add a "what links here" function to the template, since the parameter won't have already been mangled, but I might need help from a bot to remove the plus signs from all the parameters when I'm done. --Pentium5dot1 t~^_^~c 02:22, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

That's sounds great. Do you think the youtube search option should be switched with google video? I think its a lot more efficient myself. I switched to the level 4 headers by the way and I've trimed the list down a bit too. MadMax 00:27, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I agree with using a Google Video search. Now we have the issue that the level 4 heading font is not much smaller than the lv3 heading font - but the section edit links are worth it, right? --Pentium5dot1 t~^_^~c 00:30, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Your right, it's a lot easier to edit the page now! I'm hoping to get UN:REQ on the navigation/communitity sidebars so the page will get a little more exposure. User:The Woodburninator thinks that's one of the main problems with the page. MadMax 01:01, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

I've nominated a new award for UN:REQ at Uncyclopedia:Vote for awards, decorations and honours and I was wondering if you had any suggestions (i.e. pictures, layout) ? Also I'm curious would it be possible for a template to display (preferably the top 20) results from Special:Wantedpages ? MadMax 17:55, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Sorry I can't think of any suggestions on that at the moment, but I have a question about this edit. I seem to remember a friend mentioning that "Telephone Sanitation Riots" is a plot element from a book in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, but I'm not too clear on the situation myself. I will report back to you if I find out any more info. How might we be able to work this in?
Also, I know that {{Special:Recentchanges/number}} can be used to transclude a list of the number most recent changes to the entire wiki, but I still need to test this with other special pages. --Pentium5dot1 t~^_^~c 01:54, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

That does sound familiar but I haven't read it in the longest time. Now that you mention it, I did like the idea of a Medieval-era telemarketing scandal myself (ex. Henry VIII and mail order brides). 1427 was also the year the first Gypsies visited Paris and the Azores was discovered (so its not exactly like there's nothing to work with).

It'd be great if we could get a working Specialpages template. I'd suggest asking one of the older editors who deal with the technical side of things (User:Algorithm, User:Sannse, etc.) but sadly I don't anyone whose still active. MadMax 15:43, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Sun Bee and Neanderthals

In regard to your changing Homo neanderthalis to Homo neanderthalensis in the currently featured article Sun Bee (am I bragging or what?), you are technically correct. I thought briefly about using the true name, but found it seemed awkward in the article (I still have trouble pronouncing it). I even briefly considered using Homo neanderthalanus, but rejected that too. I reverted your edits for humour's sake. But thanks for the thought! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 04:00, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Okay, sorry for not discussing it on any talk page first. But there was also one capitalization error - the second part of a scientific name should be lowercase. Are you telling me not to touch that either? Should we put HTML comments (i.e. <!-- ... -->) into the wikitest in order to explain this to other editors? --Pentium5dot1 t~^_^~c 04:03, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
I don't think you needed to put it on a talk page--it was a small, sensible edit. Another editor pointed out a while back that the species name needed to be lower case--I knew that and missed it at first, and I thought all those were fixed. (Apparently we had fixed them, then when I restored part of what I'd removed, I accidentally put the error back in--thanks for pointing that out--I just fixed it). I suppose the HTML message would be a good idea, but I decided on that very early when the article was just a bunch of rough notes and wasn't worried about fixes then. After that I forgot about it. And again, ordinarily I would be thanking you for your fixes. You had no way of knowing I done did it wrong on a purpose. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 04:17, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
I just added an HTML message to the article per your suggestion--thanks! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 04:25, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

DDR

Hi. I'm not an admin and I don't have a dog in this fight, though I voted against DDR and we discussed it briefly on the VFD page. Anyway, it doesn't surprise me that the admin who deleted DDR didn't read what you asked to be done with it. It can be gotten back and an admin can do it; surely pointing to the fact that you asked that this be done will be persuasive.

I am often on VFD looking for pages I can salvage. When it looks as though one is losing the election, I go into Edit, select the entire text (Windows: Ctrl-A) and copy it to the Paste Area on my local machine (Alt-E C). Then I create the same document inside User:SPIKE and paste in the text of the document in Mainspace before they kill it. Voila, a private copy (though it doesn't preserve the prior change history, which will be preserved if you succeed in getting a copy through an admin). Spıke ¬  19:02 22-Dec-09

I have now dealt with this properly at User talk:Under user#Re: DDR. I asked for the history to be preserved so that a transwiki to Illogicopedia can be considered. That's why I did not userfy the article myself earlier on. --Pentium5dot1 t~^_^~c 19:03, December 22, 2009 (UTC)
OK, sounds good. Spıke ¬  19:34 22-Dec-09

Idea for UN:REQ?

Do you think it might be worth starting an official monthly award for editors to contribute a requested article? I was thinking something along the lines of offering a "bounty" for articles which been on the list for a year or more or simply an article on a basic topic (e.g. Kissing). It would be great if someone at RadicalX's Corner could help in making a special award. MadMax 06:47, January 3, 2010 (UTC)
