The most AWESOME talk page you will meet on your journey from point A to point B

This is mah talk page.! Someone should really bother making a character that's a crossover of . and !. Wouldn't that be cool.!

If the font displays as Times New Roman, please let me know and specify your OS & Browser specs


Many of your articles are a waste of server space. Repetition is ok to a point, but you're over the limit, as least to this admins mind. I have taken the liberty of trimming the bulk of some of your stuff. Any questions? Ask me. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png 00:51, 12 Farbleum 2015 (UTC)

Almost forgot... welcome to Illogicopedia. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png 00:53, 12 Farbleum 2015 (UTC)

Sorry. I'll try to keep these shorter. I mean, I can just use bigger fonts to achive the same effect :) --Iamawesome  T | C | U  18:05, 9 Arche 2015 (UTC)
I think your articles need to be a bit more wholesome than just wall to wall blah-ing. XY008 (talk) 21:12, 9 Arche 2015 (UTC)

Are you Nigel Tomm?[edit]

He's written a book called the Blah Story. Here's an excerpt:

Blah intimidated, they blah to blah blah, where blah and blah passed a blah blah. Blah little blah that blah blah one blah surprised to blah what blah their blah were blah.

‘I always blah a blah to blah a blah,’ he blah blah.

‘I like blah.’

It is a 'book' which was 'written' by Nigel Tomm, It has 23 volumes, 11,338,105 words, 17,868 pages and 61,745,771 characters. XY008 (talk) 00:33, 11 Arche 2015 (UTC)

No. --Iamawesome  T | C | U  11:12, 15 Arche 2015 (UTC)

I'm n00b[edit]


--Iamawesome  T | C | U  25:61, 32 Farbleum 2015 (UTC)

The time and date are wrong. It's 02:01, 4 Arche 2015 (UTC) --Iamawesome  T | C | U  19:20, 15 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Hi yeah. I'm fine.. 2.08AM, 16 mar 15.
I would really appreciate signatures, XY007. --Iamawesome  T | C | U  07:19, 16 Arche 2015 (UTC)
All right then. XY007 T C 22:21, 16 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. --Iamawesome  T | C | U  11:05, 17 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Eh well. XY007 T C 22:11, 17 Arche 2015 (UTC)


Your userpage is already better than mine! XY007 T C 05:29, 20 Arche 2015 (UTC)

I'm kind of a part-time web developer, you know, so no problem :) Iamawesome  T | C | U  19:40, 20 Arche 2015 (UTC)
So you mess around with HTML and CSS and other stuff? I couldn't get my signature working before! XY007 T C 07:08, 21 Arche 2015 (UTC)
No problem! CSS + HTML = Cool webpages! If you want, I can get you a cool signature :) Iamawesome  T | C | U  07:55, 21 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Can you help me make a new wiki skin? XY007 T C 23:09, 21 Arche 2015 (UTC)
OK, what theme will it be? Something pinkish? Or futuristic? Iamawesome  T | C | U  10:59, 22 Arche 2015 (UTC) 09:20, 22 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Red in general. I would need minimalistic white icons.
So here's what it should look like: Vector sidebar on top (including search). Everything icon-based. Edit options bar (edit, history, etc.) below top bar. Other info (like page view counter and licensing) goes on the bottom. I'm hoping to have different colours (red, green, blue etc.)
OK. I haven't made a skin before, but I'll see what I can do :) Iamawesome  T | C | U  10:59, 22 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Argh! It's not what I expected. I think I'm gonna give up. I really haven't learnt PHP. Iamawesome  T | C | U  11:34, 22 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Never give up until the end! BTW, can you change the editnotice to have the same colour gradients as your talk page? XY007 T C 22:43, 22 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I actually figured out it was all a huge stylesheet, which makes it all SO simple. And editnotice is what? Iamawesome  T | C | U  13:23, 23 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Editnotice as in the text that appears when you edit a page. Yours would be at User:Iamawesome/editnotice. XY007 T C 05:51, 24 Arche 2015 (UTC)

You speak Estonian?[edit]

I'm a little surprised. XY007 T C 22:06, 24 Arche 2015 (UTC)

Oh yes I do. Iamawesome  T | C | U  04:08, 25 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Is it true that 73% of Estonians wear cowboy hats and levitate during Lent? LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png 21:07, 26 Arche 2015 (UTC)
At least according to Wikipedia. XY007 T C 21:59, 26 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Cowboy hats? Levitate? I don't think so... Iamawesome  T | C | U  04:44, 27 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Tha's intrestin. XY007 T C 04:47, 27 Arche 2015 (UTC)

Times New Roman[edit]

I have to use an old Windows 2000 / IE 6 computer at work (Magrathea) so it is Times New Roman on that system. On my laptop however, it is Windows 8.1 and perfectly fine. I can't believe that of all people to join Illogicopedia, one person joined who speaks Estonian! XY007 T C 09:25, 29 Arche 2015 (UTC)

BTW, are you going to join Big Brrother 2015? XY007 T C 09:27, 29 Arche 2015 (UTC)

  1. You see Times New Roman? Because Comic Sans MS should be supplied with Windows 2000... Oh well. I'll just supply some free comic fonts. Just checked Extension:CSS and figured out you can use the extension itself as @import.
  2. I think I will join that Big Brrother 2015. Iamawesome  T | C | U  10:39, 29 Arche 2015 (UTC)
Well, derp. {{#CSS:}} doesn't seem to work with external (or internal!) .css files. The best thing you can do is tell me which font on that computer looks the most like Comic Sans MS. Iamawesome  T | C | U  13:14, 29 Arche 2015 (UTC)
I like your new sig. XY007 T C 00:21, 30 Arche 2015 (UTC)
I like it too :) just seems to have problems with text right above/below it, I think I'm gonna make the 'metal plate' smaller. Iamawesome  T | C | U  11:56, 30 Arche 2015 (UTC)
When it is set up on here, you can't see the 'T' button, only 'C' and 'E'. And if JS is not working then the sig will not work, eh? XY007 T C 22:16, 30 Arche 2015 (UTC)
What are you talking about? This thing works on pure css! And I don't know why you can't see the C and E in my sig... Iamawesome  T | C | U  03:24, 31 Arche 2015 (UTC)
It works now. XY007 T C 04:13, 31 Arche 2015 (UTC)

Greetings, Herr Developer![edit]

Forgive me for making the first communication to you a webdev question...

Well, the thing is...what's the way to use javascript in MediaWiki? The script tag obviously doesent work. Fact is I'd wrote a crappy line drawing page with js and a grid of cells, and only discovered this after pasting it here. The article: CrapPaint

Well, I figured out that JS can only be used via *skin-name*.js, common.js and (i think) illogicopedia.js. Figured it out back in the days when I didn't know about #CSS and tried to make censor using JS event listeners. Iamawesome  T | C | U  04:02, 1 Arply 2015 (UTC)

Cheers! :D Lord Assbutt the Fourth |Talk to meh|BOINC! 21:37, 31 Arche 2015 (UTC)

No need for forgiveness man. XY007 T C 22:27, 31 Arche 2015 (UTC)

How does maze markup work?[edit]

Want to know. XY007 T C 09:08, 3 Arply 2015 (UTC)

You mean the one of my maze? Params n, e, s and w mean are these sides allowed (can you pass from here). If 1, then yes, anything else = no. n2, e2, s2, w2 mean where to go when the user goes for example east. Only useful when you can go to that side. wh means is there a warphole. whid is the warphole id (the number next to the w in the map), wht means target room for warphole. Iamawesome  T | C | U  09:16, 3 Arply 2015 (UTC)
YOU CAN'T GO DIAGONALLY!!!!!1!! Iamawesome  T | C | U  09:26, 3 Arply 2015 (UTC)
Made it simpler. Specify side=target.

The Ism Party[edit]

Would you like to join the political party? Our web portal is here. XY007 T C 04:04, 4 Arply 2015 (UTC)

But only if I can still belive in awesomeism. Iamawesome  T | C | U  04:51, 4 Arply 2015 (UTC)
Yeah you can. You can be our ambassador, I'll be the secretary. XY007 T C 05:01, 4 Arply 2015 (UTC)
I'll join. Where do I sign my name? Iamawesome  T | C | U  05:02, 4 Arply 2015 (UTC)
Go to the link I provided.
Actually we've moved:


Back to Earth now (not Magrathea), watching tonight's lunar eclipse. Sadly not visible from Estonia. XY007 T C 05:31, 4 Arply 2015 (UTC)

Hello. Still like the Ism Party? XY007 T C 10:42, 4 Arply 2015 (UTC)
I do, but the database seems (seemed) to be read-only for some reason. I could not even create an account! Iamawesome  T | C | U  12:38, 4 Arply 2015 (UTC)
Just checked. Still errors. Here is an image. Iamawesome  T | C | U  12:53, 4 Arply 2015 (UTC)
Yes it's a database issue. will try to fix it. XY007 T C 22:22, 4 Arply 2015 (UTC)
Some faulty database files I removed. Now try, it should work. XY007 T C 22:32, 4 Arply 2015 (UTC)

We need a logo and motto for the Ism Party. XY007 T C 10:03, 5 Arply 2015 (UTC)

About the Ism Party[edit]

I set up the page, Illogicopedia:The Ism Party. Do you like it? I'm secretary/central deputy, you are President. OK? XY007talkcontributions 10:06, 8 Arply 2015 (UTC)

Multiple Sigs please[edit]

Hey Iamawesome this is Twoandtwoalwaysmakesafive (look me up on this site). I saw how you are willing to make awesome signatures for users like me who are 1.) new to this site, 2.) young. REALLY YOUNG. 3.) too darned lazy to make their own signatures and 4.) insane. Well, that's why I'm talking to you. But the thing is, I have multiple aliases on this site, all of which I use frequently. They are: 2+2=5, Gozimnot, 4x4=12, and 1984.

Now, I'm not gonna ask you to do awesome signatures for ALL of them, although that would be AWESOME. All I want is a signature for User:Twoandtwoalwaysmakesafive. Message me on my talk page please. Thanks!

Mink! XY007talkcontributions 03:25, 12 Arply 2015 (UTC)

Taking picture with webcam[edit]

I have recreated the logo similarly to yourself on paper, but I need to use my webcam to take a picture. Can I do that without it being pointed to my face? Thanks. XY007talkcontributions 11:25, 14 Arply 2015 (UTC)

HMM... I don't think so. Don't you even have a phone that can take pictures? Because if not, then webcams aren't really the things made for high quality pictures. But if you have to, then if the webcam is built into the computer, then it's forced to point at your face. If it's external, then you can probably deattach it from your screen ( / the place where it is) and point it into the paper. Iamawesome  T | C | U  11:39, 14 Arply 2015 (UTC)

Dark template[edit]

Nice template, but is there anyway to stop the template inverting the colour of text inside quotes and on the category bar? Monkey-butler.jpg Sincerely, islandmonkey - go speak 18:38, 14 Arply 2015 (UTC)

Well, if I could mess with TOC then I bet I can with the category bar. Iamawesome  T | C | U  02:40, 15 Arply 2015 (UTC)

Big Brrother 2015[edit]

Could you join? We need 7 people and right now have only 5. XY007talkcontributions 04:29, 16 Arply 2015 (UTC)

Please don't spam everyone's talk pages, they'll join if they want to. We actually could go ahead with just 6 people if we don't get anyone. XY007talkcontributions 05:42, 18 Arply 2015 (UTC)
Fine. I just sent everyone one message, just to inform them. Iamawesome  T | C | U  05:43, 18 Arply 2015 (UTC)
Alright. So you've created 2 distinct signatures for me, and that's uber awesome. But how do i use them? I know how to sign, but how do i sign with one of the signatures you created for me? Twoandtwoalwaysmakesafive (talk) 20:35, 19 Arply 2015 (UTC)Synanim1.gif
Template. So in your preferences you can set your signature, but remember to check the 'Treat signature as wikitext' box. If it gets too big, make it a template in your userspace like mine User:XY007/sig2, but first I made the mistake of substing my signature rather than transcluding it, so for example use Radiohead.gif 2+2=5 Radiohead bear animated avatar.gif (Tay | Say) Radiohead.gif or something. XY007talkcontributions 01:47, 20 Arply 2015 (UTC)
XY007 is right. I recommend for example User:Twoandtwoalwaysmakesafive/sig1 and User:Twoandtwoalwaysmakesafive/sig2. But then your signature can't not subst a template (it'll always replace the template with SUBST:the template) so you should use {{SUBST:nosubst|User:Twoandtwoalwaysmakesafive/sig1}}. Iamawesome  T | C | U  03:51, 20 Arply 2015 (UTC)


That's the account of my pet cat, who knows about Illogicopedia now. XY007talkcontributions 22:55, 23 Arply 2015 (UTC)

Oh. Now I get it. Iamawesome  T | C | U  04:36, 24 Arply 2015 (UTC)
Excuse me sir? I need to ask you a question: DOes this website need another webdev? Synanim1.gif Twoandtwoalwaysmakesafive Synanim1.gif (Break my front door down.) Synanim1.gif 02:57, 28 Arply 2015 (UTC)
Ack. XY007talkcontributions 03:22, 28 Arply 2015 (UTC)
User:Fluffy Waffles told me that he showed this website to one of the Uberumpteenth (my grade, 10) graders, and I 'appen to know him. He's obsessed with Steam and he has Windows 10. He's also Armenian, and is planning on going to CalTech. Why do I mention him now? The webdev told me that he might join this website today, tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow and "succeed" you as the supreme webdev of Ilogicopedia. I've seen what he can do, and all i've gotta say is: "Gird thy loins." He's really good at it. Synanim1.gif Twoandtwoalwaysmakesafive Synanim1.gif (Break my front door down.)

Thank you for trying to update IllogiNews. —Marzipan (talk) 09:49, 30 Arply 2015 (UTC)

No probs, BTW did you even notice what has happened to IllogiNews categories? (You probably did, but if you didn't then the two category lines (pages in category "CATNAME", This category contains X pages) are hidden) Iamawesome  T | C | U  12:44, 30 Arply 2015 (UTC)

Akshun must bee tayken.[edit]

As you may know Iamawesome, we have a new breed of vandal here on Illogicopedia; a type of vandal who adds instead of subtracts. It is best that we give him/her an official warning first and see if she/he gets it the first time. If not, then you know what to do. At least, i hope u know. Synanim1.gif Twoandtwoalwaysmakesafive Synanim1.gif (Break my front door down.) Synanim1.gif 00:46, 16 Aym 2015 (UTC)

So you mean FlowerBase importing useless modules from wikipedia just because we have Scribunto? yeah [s]he is EEEEEEEVILLLLLL!!!!! Iamawesome  T | C | U  06:27, 16 Aym 2015 (UTC)

Something else to do, I suppose?[edit]

Can you please give my userpage a facelift? If i could pay yiu to do it, i would. Honest.

I want you to only use the colors #0000A0, #000000, and #800000 throughout my userpage. I already have a cool font on my userpage, so that wont be necessary. Please want to make.changes to anything else or if i need to.clear anything up befire you do anything.

I hope im not asking too much of you.

Sincere ly, Synanim1.gif Twoandtwoalwaysmakesafive Synanim1.gif (Break my front door down.) Synanim1.gif 22:47, 30 Aym 2015 (UTC)

Hm. ONLY if you let XY evict you in BB15! Then I would be the winner! And then I would change your userpage. Iamawesome  T | C | U  14:04, 4 Yoon 2015 (UTC

You won Big Brrother 2015![edit]

It's decided. I used a random number generator, (if 1 then you, if 2 then the other guy). So it came up as 1. You win! XY007talkcontributions 01:06, 5 Yoon 2015 (UTC)

GOM GOM GOM! GOM! Wow! Will I get a template? Oh, I'm so exited. Iamawesome  T | C | U  04:05, 5 Yoon 2015 (UTC)
You get a cookie! XY007talkcontributions 04:50, 5 Yoon 2015 (UTC)
Oh boy! What flavor? Iamawesome  T | C | U  04:51, 5 Yoon 2015 (UTC)
Chocolate chip. Like that template. XY007talkcontributions 04:55, 5 Yoon 2015 (UTC)

Put this on your user page:

Cartoon chocolate chip cookie.png This user has a (virtual) chocolate chip cookie given to them by someone else, not themselves.

XY007talkcontributions 04:56, 5 Yoon 2015 (UTC)

*facepalm* You're supposed to say "Cookie flavor. *insert wild west tone here*". Well, I'm fine with a virtual cookie. Iamawesome  T | C | U  04:58, 5 Yoon 2015 (UTC)

Adding news items to main news page[edit]

how can this be done now? I never got personal notice of your changes, so I am lost. Good on ya for coding improvements... Bad on ya for wasting my time. So, help me out and you'll be back to zero, which is good I you're coding arrays in C. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 12:10, 9 Yoon 2015 (UTC)

It's automatic, didn't you see the comment in Template:News? Iamawesome  T | C | U  12:50, 9 Yoon 2015 (UTC)
I saw "Instead subscribe to recent changes but add &namespace=114 to the end." I have no idea what that means. Please enlighten me. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 01:26, 10 Yoon 2015 (UTC)
Sigh. for Atom feed, for RSS feed. Iamawesome  T | C | U  05:20, 10 Yoon 2015 (UTC)
It does show there, but articles are listed by date of creation, not by date of last edit. Look right under "Illogicopedian saves day; becomes national hero". But if you really need it to show in the top, you can either make an exception and show it in the top or change the thing to show articles based on date of last edit (which I unrecommend). Iamawesome  T | C | U  18:21, 10 Yoon 2015 (UTC) (PS: is your caps lock button broken? you can use some software to re-map for example F10 to caps lock. Then you can press F10 to toggle caps lock.)
OK, now I fully understand. My aggravation was from not seeing the behavior I'd been used to, and not being able to figure it out from the code changes and comments. Thanks for clearing that up. The allcaps was my subtle way of telling you that I thought you were being a dick with that "sigh" comment. I interpreted your response to have a condescending tone. Unfortunately for you, I was in a rare foul mood when I read it, so you happened to be the third person I've reamed today. Good news, everyone! My meds have kicked in! LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 18:42, 10 Yoon 2015 (UTC) (PS: Thanks for your work here. Thus far, you have been proven to be capable as an asset, and (I'm not supposed to tell you this) you are in the running for Special Illogical Operations School in spring 2017. Cheers.)
