D-raeD rae said:

Haha.. well, most of us are ;) Watch out for the chatters, though.. if ya get me.
I noticed your userpage is a bit blank.. up for a spiffy one? as I think you'll get quite popular here :) A nice userpage is always a plus, especially if you contribute to a FA or aFAC... I can doll something up for you, if you like?
-D

On 13:57, 10 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Sweet :) A page like mine, with different colours? Or how would you like to go about it? I work better with guidelines ;)

On 15:08, 10 September 2007

Cherry-Blossom-GirlCherry Blossom Girl said:

That'd be great. Thanks!

On 14:13, 11 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Ookay.
I'm not sure if we could add pictures of AFI (legal issues), but I can set up a page with your colour schemes. I'm on it :)
PS;; no worries if ya don't like it... we can always roll it back :P
-D

On 14:21, 11 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Alrighty then.
How's that look? I had to put in a UIB (the boxes in the column), so I put the Rock one. I assumed you liked rock... heh heh.. I made that UIB ;)
The colours working for you, or would you like something different? Don't hesitate to yell at me, or ask me to change something.. I live for that stuff :P
-D

On 17:31, 11 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

That's brilliant :) Woohoo, no yelling! ;) I'm glad you like it.
Would you like more UIBs? I can get you links and such. You know... :P
All that's left to do on your end is the filling out... can't wait to see how that turns out :)
-D

On 17:36, 11 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Hey, thanks for the mention ;) Probably should link that, though, right? :P
Good work, you're learning fast.

On 17:38, 11 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Em... do you mean you took the photos yourself? Like, with your own camera?! Jeez, you make me jealous ;) No, no problems if you took'em yourself, love.
Gimme two secs, and I'll snag ya the link with all the spiffy UIBs.

On 17:39, 11 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Okey-dokey, here we are. Enjoy'em ;)
-D

On 17:41, 11 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Au revoir, mes ami. (I just know I spelled something wrong :P)
Anywho, I'm just going to go ahead and adjusting the wording of sXe.. we've some sick people on here, and they would take that the wrong way. If ya get me.
-D

On 14:32, 12 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Ha ha :) That made me laugh! But, at least the "cool" people know what sXe means :P
I'll link it for you... then, I'll come back and teach you, once I organise my thoughts...
And hey, nice UIB! You should try filling the whole column, though; it makes things look proper.. and spiffy :P
-D

On 14:40, 12 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Okay, two minute crash course in wikilinks heading your way!
I thought I'd teach you how to wikilink, so things on your page will be clickable.
To link to a user- we'll use Peanut Baby- type in [[User:Peanut-Baby]]. Of course, you'll notice the dash, and you may not like that to show up. So, then you type in, [[User:Peanut-Baby|Peanut Baby]] instead. You can put whatever text ya like after the '|'.
For linking to wikiHow articles, say, Be a Punk, you'd type in ;; [[Be a Punk]], or [[Be a Punk|Punkish obsession]].. it's very important to never type in the How-to bit, and always type the article name the way it's shown on the page. =)
Let's see that in a real thing, then.
"So, I was to talking to my homegirl, the other day about this cool new punk trend... it's totally awesome. You should check it out, I've got links on my userpage!"
Of course, I'd try to avoid talking like that, but it's just so you get an idea ;) Here's what it looks like without the linkage.
"So, I was to talking to my [[User:Peanut-Baby|homegirl]], the other day about this cool new [[Be a Punk|punk trend]]... it's totally awesome. You should check it out, I've got links on [[User:D-rae|my]] userpage!"
Tada!
-D

On 10:32, 13 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

He-hey! Glad I could be of service :P
Nice UIBs, btw; and who said random was a bad thing? Eh?
If you need anymore help, let me know, alright?
And, if you would, could you add your opinion to Be an AFI Based Emo please? That, and Dress Like Pete Wentz.. Merci!
-D

On 21:47, 15 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Oh, people like me are hard to find :P I'm just odd that way.
But, if you're looking to meet relatively sane people, you might try editing some articles, as often, patrol members will send you a note of thanks. Or, you could join a project like wikiHow:Behavior-Saviors and befriend the teenagers ;)
Sound like a plan?

Nice job on the Lord of the Rings article.

On 03:21, 16 September 2007

KnowItSomeKnowItSome said:

I am so glad. Let me know if I can help in any way.

On 16:58, 16 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Heh heh.. well, I do get lonely sometimes, and I'm not on my rocker, so... :P I think we're lacking crazy nice people :P
I noticed your edits! Great job, we need stub savers like you :) Woohoo!
Well... you don't have to do anything special to help out with the BSP ;) It'd be nice if you popped the UIB on your page, though... *ahem-hem*
UNLESS you'd like to lead aa category? I can work something out ;) It'd really help us out if you decided to lead a category.
Wutchu think?
-D

On 21:32, 16 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Fantastic :)
Which category you interested in?

On 21:42, 16 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

For sure.. just pick one for now ;) Which one shall it be? I lead punk, with User:Jaydoubleyoubee and Goth is led by Jared and Crimson... what shall it be?

On 04:57, 17 September 2007

JackHerrickJack H said:

Nice editing!

On 17:13, 17 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

For sure ;) Do you know what to do as leader? Oh, that reminds me... did you want to be a leader or assistant leader?

On 22:39, 19 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Leaders are in charge of finding shoddy articles and posting them on the page. You've got to tag the articles (discussion pages) with the template, and then, once the article looks much better, you send it to CE'er ;)
Did that make sense? Sorry, I'm tired, it's like... late, here :P
-D

On 11:08, 20 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

A bit south, but close enough :P
CE'ers is wikiShorthand for copyeditors ;) Don't feel dumb darling, it's my fault.. I should've explained it better.
Did you see the photo I popped on the Ryan Ross article> Pretty sweet, eh ;)
Let me know what position you want, so I can add you!
-D

On 18:58, 21 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Super :D Check yourself out!! Now... get to work!! Just kidding, love :P I'm so glad you're a leader now... you're awesome :) :) :)
-D

On 20:35, 21 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Heh heh... I try ;) Thanks!
Let me know if you find any articles though.. I'd love to get in and edit'em :)
I may also call on you, for a copyediting job :P
Also, do you know how to find proper photos we can use on wikiHow? I can give you a quick crash course, if you're interested :)
-D

On 20:42, 21 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Ha ha... give me two secs, and I'll be able to explain the whole picture thing... gotta condense it all ;)
Yep! We edit everything on the "Articles That Need Saving" list; once an article looks much better, we pop it on the "CE Team to the Rescue!" list.
Then, we send it to one of our ACE copyeditors, they spiff it up, let us know, and then we move it on the the "Completed" section :D Get it? :P
BTW, I saw the kick boo-tay work you've done on the Metal Head article. Good start! I love you :P
-D

On 20:48, 21 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

My job description? Haha.. what? :P
Ookay, crash course on photo stuffs headin' your way.
Right. Let's pretend we're looking for a photo to pop on the Metal Head summary. The best place to find legal photos is Flickr :D BUT the site also has copyrighted photos, which we cannot use. To bypass this, we always click on the advanced search link at the top of the search page. So... let's try that out; I've already typed in Metal Head, now all you've got to do is scroll down, and tick the Only Search Withing the CC photos... let me know how ya get on.
Wow, I sounded so dumb. I'm sorry! If you don't get that, let me know, and I'll take some Tylenol and try again :P
-D

On 21:05, 21 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Heh heh.. it's like, late here, and I'm surrounded by kids well under puberty :P Don't worry about it, you take your time ;)
You are very welcome my dear! Anytime you need anythang, I'm right here :)

On 23:58, 21 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Hallo, love!
I took a look at the Metal Head article.. do you think it's good enough to pass along to a CE'er, now? I can find a piccie for it, unless you'd like to. It doesn't matter to me, I'm dandy either way :D
-D

On 01:28, 22 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Well, I am dandy :P
Can you send me the link to the photo, please?
I may have to go soon... I should probably get my arse into bed. I'll be hearing the morning sun in a few.. wait, what? Hearing the sun? I need to get to bed :P
Send the link to me, and I'll see what I can do :)
-D

On 11:00, 22 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

I got worried about myself, too. Ya kinda know you're off when you listen to an iPod... that's run out of batteries :P

Em.. now, for the sos thingie. Let Blabla know, and then she'll tell ya what to do ;) She's the leader, not me.
-D

On 18:11, 22 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Ah, I'm too slow I tell you. I was gonna upload the photo you sent me, but you've already added spiffy things to the metal head article. Boo :P
Nice picture btw, I like the hair :)
-D

On 18:02, 23 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Cult is putting it mildly ;) Stupid, stupid Massie trolls.
Em, I've made around 20+ UIBs.. 12 are on my page, while the rest I removed. I love making band ones, it's fun :P
I've gotta get to work answering people, now. Jeez, ya go away for a day and look what's waiting for ya! Heh heh, I feel loved ;)
How you doing with stuffs? Is wikiHow working for you?
-D

On 17:22, 24 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Wow, you're hitting the BSP already :) I was looking for an article to pop on Goth.. thanks!
-D

On 09:29, 25 September 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Heh heh.. I think the fact that I'm getting to bed 'round 3 AM every night is starting to take effect :P
But I'm still dandy ;)
How you doing? I'm just sitting here for a little while, catching up on some stuffs.

Hey I heard you were helping us/me with BSP and with Goth. I'm so happy to have you helping! I just wanted to introduce myself and let you know that I'm glad to have you helping me/us! Alright, this is getting to be a bit over-happy and strange so I'm just going to post it before I start doing something really strange!

I just got home from a school dance where I ate about five cupcakes ... with frosting ...

Wait .... you counted my exclamation points?! :-)

On 03:10, 29 September 2007

Frosting is the best ... espically the kind that comes in cans that you buy at the grocery store ... Wow I'm using alot of dot dot dot's today ...

I just came across this intresting article (http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Gothic-Fairy-Costume) I think it needs to be tagged. It's not a bad article, but I'm not sure it's entirely accurate.

On 03:13, 29 September 2007

I regret to inform you that I must leave. (How formal! The cupcakes must be wearing off!) My parent's are kicking me off the computer =P Tell me what you think about that article!

It's brilliant! I just put it a tip and added a bit on to step 5, but other than that major improvement. Sorry I wan't able to edit it any last night, but you did a fantastic job!

P.S. your letter was very good for a friendly/formal letter. I've never gotten a letter on wikihow before! Just messages! By the way, I only used three exclamation points this time (so you don't have to count them). ;)

Haha, ya :D I got paralyzed with fear when she said that :P
I was wondering, since your a sXe, Crimson a sXe, I'm a sXe, do you think I should make UIB for it? It's just an idea.
I love the edits you made on the goth fairy article; I tagged it for the BSP. If we work really hard at it, it could be an FAC, and maybe be up there for Hallowe'en. That'd be awesome :) Wutchu think?

Happy belated birthday! *blushes* I knew I shouldn't have eaten sugar before reading your userpage... I usually remember things like that. Did you have a good one? Sorry.
Don't worry about it, don't apologise! It was funny! AND I embarrassed myself; nothing unusual, it's just the first time I've done so on wikiHow.. I think :P No, wait, never mind... 'tis the seventh.
Scottish and Irish :D I like to keep the Irish bit hidden these days, though :P Jeepers. In fact, let's just stick with Canadian... or Eh'er, I'm fine with either :P
Ooh! Two admins support FA'ing the article.. I'm all giddy, I am :P
