Hey, great edits. Gofer, keep up the good work!

Ooblah Hip! Thanks! Frum Lanky

Yeah, nice job.SaudyTalk!

Good Job[edit]

Good job on your edits and keep it up ;) Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC

Thanks! Frum LANKY KONG!

Ya, ya... especially on your user page! That rocked my socks. Oh, and by the way, if you want to set up an signature template for yourself, just let me know. It's pretty easy, but it takes some explaining. Anyway, it's worth it, and you can see that Xzelion and myself are using it. :) Stumpers! 13:52, 27 June 2007 (EDT)

Yeah Stumpers, I want to know how to make a signature template. As you can see, my sig is Frum LANKY KONG!, and I want to make something better. Oh, and thanks for the comment on my user page. If you don't want to post the explanation here, we could always go to you User talk. You decide. Frum LANKY KONG!

Donkey Kong Jet artwork[edit]

If there is any official artwork released please upload it. No offense, but the rips are kinda bad quality. --Taj The Genie 16:36, 27 June 2007 (EDT)

I did not load those on the site. I just rearranged them better in the gallery and put them on other articles. I made a near perfect Lanky pic, but I have no idea how to upload it from Paint. If I find any official artwork, I'll replace the bad quality ones. Frum LANKY KONG!

RE: Sig Template[edit]

Hey, Lanky! No problem. Here's how to make a signature.

  1. Create a "User Subpage" for your signature. Mine is at User:Stumpers/sig so yours could be at User:Lanky kong/sig. You can use any word after the / that you want, but for the sake of this example I'm using sig. I'll let you know down below what you need to change if you don't want to use sig. Anyway, if you click that link or type in the desired URL, you can start making your sig.
  2. Now, as for what you type, here's what my page says as an example: [[User:Stumpers|<span style="font-family:Matisse ITC; color#hexcode;">Stumpers</span>]] The text between the double brackets is the sig. Let me show you how it looks: Stumpers
  3. Here's the breakdown of what all that mess means.
    • User:Stumpers This code allows users to click my signature to bring them to my user page. You would use "User:Lanky kong"
    • Matisse ITC This is the font I used for my signature. You could replace it with just about any font you find in Microsoft Word. The problem with fancy fonts like mine is that they don't show up so well for people using Mozilla Firefox as their Internet browser, but it shows up perfectly for people using Windows Explorer.
    • color#hexcode This I'm not too sure of. But, to the best of my understanding it changes your color if you put something like "color#hexcode:123" in place of it. See, the hexcode assigns each color a three-number code. By putting that number in for 123, you should be able to change it. Actually, just leaving in 123 should give you a color, but I don't know what!
  1. Now, where the last "Stumpers" is in my signature code, you can put whatever text you want. So, for example you could put, "Frum Lanky kong"
  2. But, it gets even cooler as you can place multiple effects on your sig. For example, if I wanted to say "Hey there" and have "Hey" link one place and "there" link another, I could do this: [[User:Lanky kong|<span style="font-family:Times New Roman; color#hexcode;">Hey</span>]][[User talk:Lanky kong|<span style="font-family:Matisse ITC; color#hexcode;"> there</span>]] So, that code would produce this: Hey there
  3. Note the space in front of "there" in the code above. That gives you a space between the words. If you would like to use the code I just made and replace "Hey" and " there" with "Lanky" and " kong" you can. If you have any problems, let me know, okay?
  4. Oooh... yeah. If you have more complex questions, like more on the color code or adding pictures to your sig, you should post on the Help Desk section of the forums. You need to create a Forum Account first, though, as your account on the Wiki doesn't work there. Good luck with the sig! Let me know if you have trouble.
  5. Next, you need to assign the signature template as your personal signature. To do this, click "My Preferences" in the upper right hand corner, look for the signature box, and paste this in: {{SUBST:nosubst|User:Lanky kong/sig}} If you used a different name for the page above in step one, you need to use that instead of "User:Lanky kong/sig". Just make sure the page is a subpage to your user page! (see step one :D). Make sure the Raw signatures box is checked.
  6. Finally, how to post it. This is simple. There are three things you need to know. Typing ~~~ posts just your signature, like this: Stumpers! Typing ~~~~ gives both the signature and the date, like this: Stumpers! 19:53, 27 June 2007 (EDT) Typing ~~~~~ gives only the date.

I hope that explains things for you! I look forward to seeing your signature! Stumpers! 19:53, 27 June 2007 (EDT)

Thanks Stumpers! You were really helpful. I will probably take your advice and check the forums, because I want to change the color and maybe add a picture. Well, here it is! Frum LANKY KONG ! f_Lankeem_dd436b6.gif

Hey, no problem. I hope I wasn't too long winded... I'm not sure how familiar you are with programming and the Wiki codes and all of that jazz. Well, glad to help! (p.s. the new sig is perfect! It makes me want to redo mine!) Stumpers! 22:00, 27 June 2007 (EDT)

RE: sig[edit]

Sure but my sig was made by Plumber (talk) so he might be able to make it better than me, but what colors do you wany i can add it. Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC

I want it to be an orange similar to the shade of Lanky Kong's "fur". Could you help me? Thanks! Frum LANKY KONG ! f_Lankeem_dd436b6.gif

No problem if you want it changed again just ask me also you want color for your user page too? Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC

Unless you can somehow make it in a blue and white fashion similar to Lanky's overalls(which I doubt is possible), I don't need a color. But thanks anyway! Frum LANKY KONG ! f_Lankeem_dd436b6.gif


Like this or... This?

Or neither :P Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC

I like the second one. Would you mind applying it? Thanks! Frum LANKY KONG ! f_Lankeem_dd436b6.gif

Sure. Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC

Wait, why isn't the border blue? In this post it was a white background with blue words and a blue border, but on my user page it is a white background with blue words and a black border. Why is that? Frum LANKY KONG ! f_Lankeem_dd436b6.gif

K I think I fixed it. Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC

Thanks for everything, Xzelion! Frum LANKY KONG ! f_Lankeem_dd436b6.gif

No problem if you need any more help, feel free to ask me. Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC
