Hi and welcome to the site,--Bobbing up 17:22, 12 July 2008 (EDT)

Yes, greetings, N0sey. Say, what's your name supposed to represent? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 17:51, 12 July 2008 (EDT)
Hola otra vez! Like the intro. Hope you stick around.--Bobbing up 07:45, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

Thanks for the warm welcome! I certainly will be sticking around, though i probably wont be editing much. At least not the actual articles. I will be nosing around the site though. You can bet on it.Dan 08:12, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

Have a look at: RationalWiki:Newcomers. It's probably a good place to start. --Bobbing up 08:19, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
Thanks, will do! Dan 14:16, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

Warning: Please ignore any completely irrelevant messages: ill be experimenting. Well. You know. OK, messing around. ...Danrant at me 14:36, 13 July 2008 (EDT)


Not a clue what this does. Lets see... ...Danrant at me 14:37, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

Cool, im getting the hang of this. Now... im not supposed to delete apparently, so how do I archive all this nonsense? lol

You probably don't really want to get into archiving yet. Look at other people's userpages - half of them are messy! If you want a place to play about and then delete go here: [[1]]. (But if you really want to archive, I'll help you with it.)--Bobbing up 14:42, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
Hehe, you make it sound scary, lol. Thanks for that link, ill use that from now on. And i wont bother archiving anything just yet, though i may ask you later on! Thanks for all the help! ...Danrant at me 14:48, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
It's not tough. Just a series of steps like anything else. But an active userpage is usually a sign of an active user. It's a bit of "Wiki cred" so don't be to hasty to clean if off! (And thanks for the thanks.)--Bobbing up 14:59, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

Spring cleaning[edit]

Deleted all the stuff on my userpage. Too long. Utterly irrelevant. Watever.......LynadHello? 14:23, 7 April 2009 (EDT)

Oh, wow.[edit]

Guess what?

JĀvąṢ₡ä₰ hi there 09:43, 8 April 2009 (EDT)

My God I've been demoted! The immense burden of responsibility settles on my shoulders ...LynadHello? 09:54, 8 April 2009 (EDT)
It always mildly annoys me when I say "My God", since I'm an atheist... LynadHello? 12:40, 8 April 2009 (EDT)

Your recent move[edit]

Your signature shouldn't be in template space (despite being a template). --  Nx/talk  18:56, 8 April 2009 (EDT)

oh. Right, ill just change that... sorry I'm new at this. Thnx.Lynad ...Hello? 18:58, 8 April 2009 (EDT)
like that? Lynad ...Hello? 19:01, 8 April 2009 (EDT)
(EC) No problems. There's nothing special about template space, except that when you type {{stuff}} it looks at Template:Stuff too, so in this case there'd be no benefit. --  Nx/talk  19:06, 8 April 2009 (EDT)

that won't work[edit]

You can't make imagelinks like that, and if you're going to do that you should probably put it into a second template. But it would be best to just wait a little while, we're going to upgrade the mediawiki software soon, which will allow you to use image links and transclusion instead of substitution for your signature. --  Nx/talk  17:55, 11 April 2009 (EDT)

... o.O I dont think i understood any of that xD

i'll just leave it. Don't like how it looks much nyways lol LynadBunny.gif ...Hello? 17:58, 11 April 2009 (EDT)

By second template... you mean like that? (with the bunny) Lynad Bunny! ...Hello? 18:02, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
Hmm and while im at it... the bunny seems to take up a large section of blank space above my signature... (i assume thats why thers a large space above what i write). How can i solve that? :S Sorry for the trouble, lol. Lynad Bunny! ...Hello? 18:07, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
Took me this long to write this:
If you take a look at this page's source, you'll see that the four tilde's where replaced by the contents of User:N0sey/signature, so it looks like this: {{Imagelink|60|30|-2|-2|text-bottom|User:n0sey|Image:Lynad (small).jpg|Lynad}}[[image:bunny.gif]][[User_talk:N0sey|<sup><font color="red"> ...Hello?</font></sup>]]. This is called substitution: if you type {{subst:User:N0sey/signature}}, then save, that is what you get.
If you use transclusion instead, it would look like this: {{User:N0sey/signature}}, and if you update your signature, it gets updated everywhere you signed before. However, mediawiki does not allow you to do that with your signature (a result of wikipedia's strict policies), and forces you to use substitution, so we work around it by using two templates, for example, you put {{subst:User:N0sey/sig}} into your preferences, and then put {{User:N0sey/signature}} into User:N0sey/sig. The result is that when you sign, the contents of sig get copied over, and you get {{User:N0sey/signature}}
Anyway, I see you've fixed it with the imagelink template. --  Nx/talk  18:11, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
Ok, I see now (just been fiddling around with what you've told me). Thanks very much :D Lynad Bunny! ...Agh! Don't hurt me! 18:25, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
You're welcome. Btw, why do you sign as Lynad? Would you like to be renamed? --  Nx/talk  18:33, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
Oh. I just assumed i couldnt be renamed :S so um yeh i guess so. Is ther a quick way to do it, or will i have to move my userspace pages? Lynad Bunny! ...Agh! Don't hurt me! 18:35, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
There's a quick way to do it, and it will move everything in your userspace and leave redirects, so you'll have to update links. I'll rename you then. --  Nx/talk  18:37, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
There you go. Don't forget to update all the links. --  Nx/talk  18:38, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
Guess tht answers my question lol. Ty ^^ Lynad Bunny! ...Agh! Don't hurt me! 18:39, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
