Gateboy42 is currently OFFLINE

Hello everybody! This is my talk page. Gosh what am I a robot? Lol! Anyways feel free to leave a comment here!

Namaste. (I love saying that!)

And now for a blank space that contains absolutely nothing, even if you go to the edit screen:

42 is a cool number, I'd say...

Hi and nice to meet you, I like your enthusiasm. I am one of the mighty sysops and after a wikivacation I'm back. Hope you feel comfortable around here. If you need help there is a very comprehensive database in the navigation box, however. if you still have questions feel free to ask me or any active user. I'm proud to say we have formed a very nice community full of fun guys n' gals. Thank you and namaste. --†††GodEmperorOfHell††† 13:11, 14 July 2006 (PDT)

Thanks! --Gateboy42

Easy; just write Template:Hulabaloo in the search box and click go. then you will get to a page where you will be asked to create it, then utilize your l33t wikiscript skills to create a table and its contents (you can always take another template as a blueprint, though), After that just add {{Hulabaloo}} to any page you want to insert the template, wipe hands on pants and you're done! --†††GodEmperorOfHell††† 16:44, 16 August 2006 (PDT)

Just a note that there is no such thing as a copyrighted template (at least not on this wiki). Anybody is free to copy a template of my page and put it on theirs, AS LONG AS THEIR PAGE DOES NOT LOOK EXACTLY LIKE MINE. This is a free wiki. You can also use them as blueprints if you wish. Namaste. -Gateboy42

Chill out.

There was no incident. Cpt. Insano is loud , rude and hotheaded, I wouldn't like him to be otherwise. Maybe you hadn't been here long enough to know that this is not the first time an argument has come up. Things were, while loud, in control, no powers of reversal or bannination. just two jerks clashing in a bar fight and then drinking together. --†††GodEmperorOfHell††† 15:39, 17 August 2006 (PDT)

PHEW! Glad to know that. I was panicking for a second...or two...or three...or whatever. :P --Gateboy42 15:41, 17 August 2006 (PDT)
And now you know why I am so proud of the LOST community, even Flamewars are fun. --†††GodEmperorOfHell††† 15:44, 17 August 2006 (PDT)
Fun for me, and I was barely involved. :\ >> -- ||[ K i t s u n e ]|| 16:24, 17 August 2006 (PDT)

DRWho2k5 and SG-1

Hey - I notice that you have a Doctor Who picture on your user page but don't list that as a show you're watching. Have you seen Season 2? Also, episode 200 of sg-1 airs tonight. There is also a special airing at 8ET/7CT before episode 200.    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 08:07, 18 August 2006 (PDT)

Thanks, I didn't notice that. I'm looking forward to 200! It's everything the fans ever wanted, I hear! Thanks for telling me about the special, didn't know. --Gateboy42 08:43, 18 August 2006 (PDT)
Oh, and I've seen Doctor Who up to the part where he transforms in the 10th Doctor (David Tennant's guy) --Gateboy42 08:50, 18 August 2006 (PDT)


You're very welcome, very happy the guide has helped! Incidentally, you're on the model userpages list from now on --Nickb123 (Talk) 09:19, 25 August 2006 (PDT)

Side note, your sig is leaving the full formula when you sign. To sort this out, read my sig guide about "autosig" so when you sign it just says your name instead of the whole color thing. It used to be that this just happened to a few peeps, but since the system maintenance earlier this week its happening to everyone with a custom sig. Following the guide though should sort it out :-) --Nickb123 (Talk) 15:04, 25 August 2006 (PDT)
I noticed it on the talk page for Lost Experience clues August 25th tis all, as well as on my talk page now. Its easily rectified with an autosig thing like I said and is a recent anomaly due to the system change --Nickb123 (Talk) 15:52, 25 August 2006 (PDT)

It's not easy being green

This color really hurts my eyes, could you choose a lighter color for this background? --†††GodEmperorOfHell††† 17:32, 25 August 2006 (PDT)

Done. --Gateboy42 07:17, 26 August 2006 (PDT)

Too many boxes

Too many boxes are taught to heal.
Too many boxes are trained to kill.
On the command of men wearing money belts that buy
Mistresses sleek animal pelts.
Too many boxes...

I would highly appreciate it if you could tell me one thing: WHAT THE GELL DOES THIS MEAN?????????--Gateboy42 08:02, 27 August 2006 (PDT)

Do you like Primus? It's a reference to their song 'too many puppies'

No, actually not! It's just that I don't want the box thing to get out of control. I will draw the line when the Template:Presbilutheran box or the Template:Nachoeater is created. --†††GodEmperorOfHell††† 08:25, 27 August 2006 (PDT)

Project Sumo

Incase you have not noticed the template at the top of this page:

Due to extremely faulty pipes in my basement that I never even knew about, I am forced to put my not-very-infamous "Project Sumo" on hold until I get this mess cleaned up (god do I hate choors...). So, even though it's 8 AM here on the east coast as I am writing this, I already have a wet mop in my hand, and the memory disk where the list is saved in the other (hope the two don't mix...). So I'll try to get this done and over, and since its a rainy day here I'm allowed more time on the computer. Namaste.

Oh, and incase you don't even know what project sumo is:

Project Sumo is what happens when you practically dream about LOST every night. "OMG, who will Kate go with???" "Wow, is that The Flame???" "So who are these freakin' Others???". Ya you get it. Theory machine gone wild. The destination is User:Gateboy42/Theories, which will of course appear blank until I copy and paste the thing off of Microsoft Word. Sysops, please be notified that I am 100% against any edits on any subdirectory of my username; NO USER IS ALLOWED TO EDIT THIS LIST ONCE IT COMES ONLINE.

Namaste (Happy Season Three). --Gateboy42 05:14, 1 October 2006 (PDT)

Darn tests! Looks like it'll have to be left incomplete for a few (enter amount of time here)s. Thanks, --Gateboy42 15:10, 7 March 2007 (PST)

Comments on Project Sumo


Hey Gateboy :) Don't worry about it, I'm sure a sysops will be around soon... til then, just keep reverting and no need to communicate with the troll. Do you know the simple way of reverting? You just click on "History" and then the last date before the vandal, and it will give you that version. Then click "Edit" and "Save page" without changing anything, and it will give you the prior version. You can also do it manually for short vandal msgs like this guy leaves, but it's easier that way for long pages, where you don't have to manually search for the changes. I'm watching this guy too. Thanks for helping out! --PandoraX 07:09, 2 September 2006 (PDT)


Oh I'm sorry I will get that fixed--Fan99 14:44, 6 October 2006 (PDT)

How do you make boxes like that any way?--Fan99 14:46, 6 October 2006 (PDT)

I'm sorry about every thing I'm just trying to fit in and I didn't know that copying other peoples things was a bad thing like you ask me real nicely to fix it but other users are being very rude about it--Fan99 14:58, 6 October 2006 (PDT)

thanks--Fan99 15:09, 6 October 2006 (PDT)

Is it ok if I use your NOTICE thing Not as the way your useing it of couse--Fan99 16:45, 6 October 2006 (PDT)


<span style="font-size:96%">_______</span> should sort you out. Adjust the 96 to suit the size you want. I'm not wonderful at using it, but the higher the percent the bigger the font. I'd suggest just using trial and error with the preview button! Later, --Nickb123 (Talk) 03:58, 10 October 2006 (PDT)

Fwd: Hows this look?

I'd like a vote on how this Template:Banned looks. If we should use it or not, if it would be practicle. Thanks for your time --Ironman 08:25, 12 October 2006 (PDT)

Awwwww.... =

Sorry you felt so left out :) I added you into the parody, hope you like it "dude." Lostpedia is the Hanso Foundation (parody theory) -- Iron Man  Send a message  View contributions  21:53, 25 October 2006 (PDT)


Hey mate, when uploading images please use the copyright templates which are listed under Lostpedia:Use of images. This just covers the site in case ABC wanna sue lol. Cheers, --Nickb123 (Talk) 14:23, 4 November 2006 (PST)

Thanks, I'm not yet real familiar with the Fair use templates. I've seen them on Wikipedia (and I have to say they are a bit over-the-top with all this copyright stuff). Ty, --Gateboy42 15:37, 4 November 2006 (PST)

Ray Mullen letter stuff...

Hey GB, just so you know, the Ray Mullen stuff is a fake, and was confirmed I think a little while ago; when I find the reference I'll show you. Believe it or not, it's not the most complicated fraud that's ever come across as being part of TLE; there was something called "The Coppenhagen Letter" that was really complex, and I know the guy who even admited to making it... he confessed, and still people wouldn't believe him :) Just a lot of people with a lot of free time on their hands. So anyway, it's just FYI if you see it around. Thanks and take care... --PandoraX 16:49, 6 November 2006 (PST)

Your Templates

Hey, I noticed on your user page that you have cool templates, such as "My fave character is John Locke". Would you mind if I borrowed the code you used, and edit it to suit my own purposes? It's just I'm not very good with the coding and stuff, and see how great you are. Don't worry, everything would be changed - colours, text, pics - I just would appreciate if I could use the base. Is that alright? It's OK if not... --   Lost Soul   talk  contribs  12:02, 13 December 2006 (PST)

User and talk pages

Hey, just dropping a line to let you know that something in your User Page and Talk page changes the text size of everything on the screen, including the navigation menu and the editing tabs across the top. It's probably just a <small> function somewhere that isn't closed out. It doesn't affect the rest of the site or anything, I just thought you'd like to know. -BearDog 12:10, 6 February 2007 (PST)

Should be fixed now. Not very easy tracking down the problems, but they were rogue div statements that were never closed out.    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 13:34, 12 February 2007 (PST)


  • Hey Gateboy, not to step on Nick's toes or anything, but you just archive your user talk when you feel that it is getting too long. There is no bot that does it (I'm not even sure if we have any bots!). Hope this clears up the question. You might also want to check out LP:GUG and LP:UT for more info. Regards, Marik7772003 15:01, 7 March 2007 (PST)
    • Thank you! --Gateboy42 15:05, 7 March 2007 (PST)
Yeah what Marik said. I personally just do a link to e.g. User:Nickb123/Archive_1 and then just dump the talk in there. Then on my page I just do the dates of correspondence, though I guess I should really do the fancy template think like most other users use --Nickb123 (Talk) 15:52, 7 March 2007 (PST)


Are you ready?    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 15:24, 13 April 2007 (PDT)
At least Amanda Tapping is going to be carrying her character over too Atlantis.    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 07:16, 14 April 2007 (PDT)
I'm assuming she'll be over there as Samantha Carter and not a replicator. Did you see the season premier? I think the rest of the actors engaged filming another Stargate motion-picture. The site gateworld.net has pretty accurate news.    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 15:35, 17 April 2007 (PDT)

Re:Online player

Sorry I don't live in the US so can't access the online player - so I have no clue how good the quality is on it. If Lostpedia is without images on something then I always say just upload as any picture is better than nothing. If they are lower quality than normal, then we can always just add {{Images To Be Replaced to it later. --Nickb123 (Talk) 02:34, 4 May 2007 (PDT)

Yeah against copyright, --Nickb123 (Talk) 14:32, 20 May 2007 (PDT)


I've seen you've got some pretty nice userboxes, I'm a little stupid here in Lostpedia (I'm more used to Wikipedia), is there a page with all userboxes, thanks and tchau.
