Signature (2)

I notice that you recreate a new signature everytime you change something small. I suggest you change that slightly. Instead of recreating an entire signature code from scratch, make your original signature take paramaters and default those paramaters to what your 'default' signature uses. Then, when you wish to create a new signature, simply alter thos paramaters. For example, your Halloween signature could look something like this instead. {{User:Head.Boy.Hog/SigReal|background=orange|statement=Happy Halloween|color=black}} or something similar. You basically route the new template through the old template instead of creating a brand new one that will need to be error checked each time. If you have any questions, or want me to configure your original signature to accept what I am proposing, let me know and I will be happy to ablige. Rappy 22:54, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

I understand exactly what you're saying. Thanks! Head.Boy.HogTalk  Happy Halloween!  22:57,10/18/2011 
Also, I could use the help configuring it. Thanks! Head.Boy.HogTalk  Happy Halloween!  22:59,10/18/2011 
Seeming how you have two styles (one based off Monchoman45's signature and one based of Godisme's), I'd have to create User:Head.Boy.Hog/SigReal2 for the second and set up both to take parameters. I will look into it tomorrow. If you don't see any changes to it by Thursday, drop me a reminder here please. Rappy 23:18, October 18, 2011 (UTC)
That's fine and thanks! Head.Boy.HogTalk  Happy Halloween!  23:20,10/18/2011 
So... Any progress? Head.Boy.HogTalk  Happy Halloween!  14:03,10/22/2011 
You might want to nudge him with either a {{talkback}}, which I know you’re familiar with, or a {{whisperback}}. Face-winkSpikeToronto 14:56, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

 Thanks Spike! Head.Boy.HogTalk  Happy Halloween!  15:05,10/22/2011 

Sorry, HBH. Looking into this, it will be a much bigger project than I anticipated and will have to wait for a rainy day I'm afraid. I'm quite busy at the moment. I will remember about it sometime soon and my OCD will compel me to deal with it. =) Rappy 20:45, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
Face-smile No problem Head.Boy.HogTalk  Happy Halloween!  21:26,10/22/2011 

Status legend

Hey HBH! I noticed you removed parts of the Status legend that tie in to parts of the template. I’m curious why you would remove them when you could just not use them. Face-confusedSpikeToronto 07:41, October 31, 2011 (UTC)

Good question. Really because I didn't like the descriptions for them and wouldn't ever use them. Head.Boy.HogTalk  Happy Halloween!  21:56,11/1/2011 


Hey HBH! Would you be interesting in resurrecting The Admin Times? I’ve had it on a backburner for some time now. I do not know what your time commitments are on your other wikis, but if you would be interested, let me know! Face-smile Thanks!SpikeToronto 23:11, October 31, 2011 (UTC)

Face-blush I'm flattered but have no talent what so ever with writing. Sorry. Head.Boy.HogTalk  Happy Halloween!  21:56,11/1/2011 

Userpage design

Hey Head! I was just wondering, did you copy my userpage? Because it looks quite like mine, great! PS:I am not mad, it's a great to use other ideas, I like to do that! Thanks acutually for this!

23:34, November 8, 2011 (UTC)

Hey B10M! I didn't copy your userpage Face-blush, Spike did... I asked a question about the status thing and Spike added it to my user page and changed it up a bit. (I should have taken the credit Face-grin...) Thanks! HBH TALK 00:11, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, funny eh. Alright, thanks for the reply! --00:17, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
No prob Ben, thanks for the question. By the way, I like your sig. Did you "copy" WikiPim's? Face-grin HBH TALK 00:19, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
No, i found it on some random code, and replaced it with my info, WikiPim's does not look like mine, people gotta stop thinking that! --00:28, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

B10M: You have got to fix that signature. This is the second time I am telling you this. Look at how many lines of code you’ve left in this heretofore small thread? I told you to speak to Gracey or Rappy about how to minimize your sig’s footprint on pages on which it is placed. A signature that is too long to fit in the box provided for signatures at Special:Preferences, must be transcluded and not substituted. Since you’re here, you can also ask HBH to tell you how to transclude and not substitute your signature. After all, that’s how he was putting his old signature — that also contained tonnes of code — on talk pages. If you keep cluttering up talkpages with so much signature code, we are going to have to limit your access until you get it fixed. Thanks! — SpikeToronto 07:57, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
P.S. I do not know if you’ve done it already, B10M, but you should be sure to thank TK for the work he did improving and cleaning up your new signature template. — SpikeToronto 07:57, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

HBH: If you are looking for a variation of the pulldown signature, you might want to look at the one at User:SpikeToronto/sigDropdown. The way it works is that the first two lines are local, and the last two lines are your home wiki. So, in my case, were I to use the sig at Central, the first two lines would be links to my Central user and talk pages, while the last two lines would be links to my home wiki’s user and talk pages. — SpikeToronto 07:57, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

Um... I'm stuck... Just to make sure I was right, I used User:Head.Boy.Hog/Sandbox/Sig/2 as a User:Head.Boy.Hog/HalloweenSig and User:Head.Boy.Hog/Sandbox/Sig as a User:Head.Boy.Hog/HalloweenSigReal but it's not working... What am I doing wrong? (I'm not the expert you think I am Spike.) HBH TALK 00:42, November 10, 2011 (UTC)
I fixed it for him. It will work perfectly for him if he follows the one very easy instruction I left for him on my talk page. — SpikeToronto 07:28, November 10, 2011 (UTC)

Your wikia.css

Why am I in your Wikia.css? Is it because im a rollback? Because if that it is im a rollback, Thomas558 is not a rollback. Why am I in it? Thanks! PS:Im not mad, just always curious. Face-smile Mazter 23:19, November 20, 2011 (UTC)

B10M, the CSS code is pretty straightforward:
a[href="/wiki/User:Thomas558"]{ color:Black !important; font-weight:bold !important; }

It makes occurrences of your name appear in boldface black, overriding the settings in the highlight file as well as any colours you use in your sig (I think). —

SpikeToronto 12:23, November 21, 2011 (UTC)
Thomas558 is a rollback. Nowm about the overriding in the hilite, I'm not sure. HBH TALK 21:32, November 27, 2011 (UTC)


Sorry I missed you. The chat window was behind the others. Too bad Wikia chat does not have any sound effects like IRC and Skype to let you know when someone is talking to you. I am on IRC right now (#admintools). You can delete this message if you want. — SpikeToronto 01:54, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, you got me logging out. Anyways, chat wasn't working for me and that was why I left. Thanks, HBH TALK 01:55, December 8, 2011 (UTC)


Hey HBH! I’ve been missing seeing you around. Hope all’s well, and hope you return soon. Face-smileSpikeToronto 07:29, February 23, 2012 (UTC)
