Gang of Four[edit]

As somebody has decided to put us in the same gang I have created a "Gang of Four" userbox. But I'm not very good at this sort of thing - if you want to:

  • Use it.
  • Improve the wording.
  • Improve the colours.

Please feel free.

Err.... sorry Bob, I don't know who's put us in a gang & don't want to be in one so I'll not be availing myself of teh ooserbocks. I've never been in a gang in my life but have, on occasion suffered at the hands of gangs. SusanG  ContribsTalk 04:23, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

OK. :-) --Bobbing up 04:29, 4 September 2008 (EDT)
Susan, it's one of those things at RatWikiWiki. The three of us are in along with Jeeves. Click on the link in the ooserbocks. Redchuck.gif Генгисmarauding 14:47, 4 September 2008 (EDT)


I uploaded a new version of this picture because your blurred email address was still readable. I would have prompted you to replace it yourself, but it seemed not entirely safe to discuss personal information while it was still on display. I hope I haven't offended you. <font=""; face="Comic Sans MS">Jellyfish!</font>Fish can wish 16:27, 4 September 2008 (EDT)


"Susan" will be off line for a while. Marghanita Laski 17:54, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

I keep forgetting she's not actually called Susan. Nothing serious I hope? Totnesmartin 19:10, 4 September 2008 (EDT)
Tell her we hope the wazzocks don't bother her and we'll see her in a few days. Take care, the both of youse. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:24, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

Home (sort of)[edit]

Good to see you out of the asylum again. Take care and get some recuperation under your belt. The bathroom can wait another week or two before you need to clean it. Jolly-Roger.png Cap'n GengOh, me wooden leg! 09:09, 19 September 2008 (EDT)


Welcome back! Hau ar you? New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 23:23, 19 September 2008 (EDT)
Hmmmm. It seems from Genghis' comment above that I'm behind the times a little. Oh well :( New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 23:24, 19 September 2008 (EDT)

Paws off[edit]

I already preserved that, thank you very much :P New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 19:01, 21 September 2008 (EDT)

Where? Did you link to it? Multiple redundancy! SusanG  ContribsTalk 19:04, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
It is in this plaice. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 19:08, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, but mine is better! ħumanUser talk:Human 19:55, 21 September 2008 (EDT)

Test #77[edit]

It's working fine for me. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:55, 21 September 2008 (EDT)

Oh, I see what you mean, it repeats itself. I'll look at it. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:57, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
Weird, it works in preview! By the way, you can't add &action=edit to a double bracket wiki link, it has to be the index.php version of the link. Shall I work on a version at my talk page too, so we can independently come to brilliang solutions? ħumanUser talk:Human 20:01, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
You'd better, I understand you NOT, I'm afraid (Teh "Index.php" bit, that is). :-) SusanG  ContribsTalk 20:06, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
If you look at the "actual" link sent to the browser, that's what I mean. That's why your (floating) talk page link is red. Anyway, yours is still "stuttering", I tried a version at my talk page that seems to work. Next step: to duplicate all the tab bar links and place the floater so it sits exactly on top of the real ones! PS, what links do you think we really should include? I just put "new section" and "top of page" on mine so far. ħumanUser talk:Human 20:17, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
Guess what I just noticed... hold your cursor over the tabs... there are "alt" keystrokes that duplicate them all! ħumanUser talk:Human 20:18, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
Yes, there's alt keys for most things, but remembering them aargh - I can't even remember my name sometimes. Can't you use the PAGENAME thing? make it portable? I don't think that they'l work 'on top' - different screen sizes/ resolutions'll mess it up I think, anyhoe=w it'll look weird. (Oh yes, NICE WORK - see what you mean re iNDEX.PHP) SusanG  ContribsTalk 20:24, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
How's that (for some reason my previous ones are still there - deleted & refreshed but STILL THERE!) SusanG  ContribsTalk 20:33, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
Oh - PAGENAME works! SusanG  ContribsTalk 20:36, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
There is also PAGENAMEE and some other stuff like that. Your talk page is haunted, by the way. ħumanUser talk:Human 21:57, 21 September 2008 (EDT)


U shrink my bloons... New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 21:24, 21 September 2008 (EDT)

Bloons very nice & much appreciated, but FUCKING UP page formatting. Suggest you read up on CSS so that it not recurring too often. SusanG  ContribsTalk 21:29, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
Will do. Sry. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 21:36, 21 September 2008 (EDT)

Outing to teh doctor place[edit]

How come you haven't regaled us with tales of the recent experiences at hospital yet? Or did the goat we sacrificed succeed in bringing you a visit free of god-botherers and other assorted asstoads? ħumanUser talk:Human 21:53, 21 September 2008 (EDT)

Didn't know much about the first couple of days - those dialasys (sp?) machines are fearsome - and then was bored as hell until kidneys went back on line (their term - not mine). Ought to give CP's psoriasis article some attention - certainly disimproved mine. Off booze for good now it seems & got to drink vast quantities of liquid for forseeable future. Doctors apparently fought over who was going to get me - I was ambulanced in on the day shift and medics, surgeons & oncologists were nearly coming to blows (she [ML] says). (She bought me a new lens for my camera so I'm out tomorrow snap snappping) SusanG  ContribsTalk 22:03, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
And herself told the staff that the sight of a godbotherer would induce a relapse, so they were kept away - handy when your other half's on t'staff. SusanG  ContribsTalk 22:55, 21 September 2008 (EDT)


You spelt it wrong... "Userehead"? New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 22:30, 21 September 2008 (EDT)

FARGLE! Flollop! Flinge! And many other "F" words! Damnit! Fingers dodgy on laptop keyboard!!! — Unsigned, by: SusanG / talk / contribs SusanG  ContribsTalk
My keyboard is all lovely and nice Nods.gif I never midspell anything! New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 22:39, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
Gonna get this machine sorted with keyboard, screen & maus so that I can pretend it's a desktop thing. SusanG  ContribsTalk 22:42, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
Wai? Desktop are rubbish. Just get smaller fingers! New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 22:49, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
I already have the smallest fingers in the shop -ring size is negative- I suppose I'm just clumsy & tired going to bed now so: gute Nacht und angenehmes Flohbeissen! SusanG  ContribsTalk 22:52, 21 September 2008 (EDT)
Night. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 22:53, 21 September 2008 (EDT)


Thanks for adding that handy-dandy floating link box to Talk:WIGO, Susan! Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 06:10, 22 September 2008 (EDT)

Unfortunately the Userhead template doesn't seem to work if you have spaces in your name. See my talk page for what happens. I'm not clever enough to fix it. Silver Sloth 06:47, 22 September 2008 (EDT)
Ahh Blox! (Nor am I) SusanG  ContribsTalk 06:50, 22 September 2008 (EDT)
Template:Userhead2 does the trick - needs a bit of input but it's only once per page. SusanG  ContribsTalk 07:03, 22 September 2008 (EDT)
You might want to revisit ML's page and look at the top left. Redchuck.gif Генгисmarauding 07:13, 22 September 2008 (EDT)
It's that "put brain into gear before engaging save page button" syndrome! SusanG  ContribsTalk 07:34, 22 September 2008 (EDT)
Thanks for fixing it for me. Silver Sloth 05:30, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
It needed doing, thanks for pointing it out! SusanG  ContribsTalk 05:33, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Userhead version #93[edit]

I've stuck one here, does that look better? In a nice bocks. (dunno what that ghost is doing, there's no code anywhere I can find it saying "userpageEdit") [looks better on my user page!]SusanG  ContribsTalk 09:04, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Your talk page is definitely haunted. That is utterly weird. I wonder if everyone sees it, or only us? ħumanUser talk:Human 22:00, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Template help[edit]

Hi! Hope you are feeling better. I didn't know you were sick, till I heard you were SICK. Anyhow, I have a quickie, as you are very good with templates. do templates you make for your own user space go in the "template" namespace, or do they go in your user space as a template or what? Pet your cats, they probably missed you!--Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot"«I don't think in any language. I think in images. V.Nabokov»13:03, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

You're better off putting such as sigs & really personal templates in your user space, if there's a possibility that someone else might want to use them, then Template namespace is appropriate. If you put 'em anywhere but Template though, you have to quote the entire name (including namespace) when using as you do with your sig. Thanks for good wishes. SusanG  ContribsTalk 14:15, 23 September 2008 (EDT)



Sigh... New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 21:20, 23 September 2008 (EDT)


My Connection speed has dropped to LUDICROUS! SusanG  ContribsTalk 14:54, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Blog (new lens)[edit]

Do you ever put your pictures up on Flickr (or similar)? Totnesmartin 17:44, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Yes, I'm on Flickr - here not put any up for a while, but there's one or two up there & I'll get more up soon - the uploader for linux is a bit strange so I'll give it some time & have a go tomorrow. (perhaps) (procrastination's my middle name) SusanG  ContribsTalk 18:02, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
WAHEY! Mine's here, but I've lost my camera... I think it's in a hedge. Totnesmartin 22:30, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
How do you leave your camera in a hedge??? ħumanUser talk:Human 00:29, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
I was climbing over/through it. When I went back (some days later, having finally guessed where I'd lost it) it wasn't there. Totnesmartin 06:48, 26 September 2008 (EDT)


Please to be careful. Our friends from Prolix 8TM may be listening... Th unsure.gif New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 09:09, 26 September 2008 (EDT)

No, they'll be too busy milking the dragons (which are native there of course). SusanG  ContribsTalk 09:14, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
Did you notice that AK's a dragon? I always suspected as much... New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 09:15, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
Don't believe Pink, Susan. Pink is nothing less than an Angel in disguise. Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 09:16, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
Actually AK's only a marsh dragon. Not a genuine FireBreather. & Chaos! is a fallen angel. SusanG  ContribsTalk 09:19, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
AK is a Big Red Celtic Dragon (Bigvm redvm draco), albeit a kindly and highly civil one. And Pink is not an Angel of any kind, despite these lurid accusations. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 09:24, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
AK: Vertus Danske DrakoBoggius (Green Danish Marshdraggon). And too true! SusanG  ContribsTalk 09:29, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
Simply, there is no proof Dragons exist, hence I do not believe they exist. If you can banhammer one, however, I would definitally be interested in seeing it. Javasca₧ no hell below him
Dragon Banhammered, Java. SusanG  ContribsTalk 09:39, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
He can't be green, Susan! Don't be silly! Haven't you seen his big red userbox? New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 09:33, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
I most certainly have not, and moreover I have no intention of ever looking at his box, user or otherwise. SusanG  ContribsTalk 09:36, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
Just pop onto his talk page and you'll see what I mean Nods.gif New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 09:41, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
But I might catch Danishness! SusanG  ContribsTalk 09:43, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
There's a vaccine now, though. And it could be worse -- you could catch Nightwish.
But if you haven't seen my comparisons of him to Llewellyn, what on earth did you think we were talking about?? New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 09:46, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
I have no idea, but that's par for the course with you! :-) SusanG  ContribsTalk 09:52, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
Bah! Baaah!!
More to the point, take a look at this and tell me that isn't eerily reminiscent of AK. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 10:02, 26 September 2008 (EDT)
