  • Does there really need to be a category for "admin"? There are only two; I'd think it would be enough to simply mention that, as the creator of the game, Jick is also an administrator of it. --Thræryn 19:29, 12 May 2005 (Central Daylight Time)
    • your probably right. i put it there so i'll go ahead and delete that category :)

--Hairykais 22:27 May 2005

    • Well, now there's at least five, up to a dozen or so depending on how you count it. I'd say maybe it's time to reexamine this category. --DVuser.giffile_icon.gifmail_icon.giflink_icon.gif 14:09, 7 April 2007 (CDT)


He isn't in Jicken Wings anymore. -Carados 20:08, 19 Sep 2005 (Central Daylight Time)

If someone can think of a better place to put the refference please do so...--Thou Shalt Perish 14:15, 31 January 2006 (Central Standard Time)

Wow. This page's formatting looks really ugly. Can someone fix it?--Jubbers 06:12, 3 November 2006 (CST)

  • Better?--Dehstil (t|c) 16:48, 3 November 2006 (CST)

"Brick is no longer jickable" is a reference to a Chuck Norris joke - "When Chuck Norris falls into water, Chuck Norris doesn't get wet. Water gets Chuck Norris." Not too sure how to edit stuff, though, so can someone put it in for me? --Azn dr4g0n 00:59, 6 November 2006 (CST)

  • Which is, in turn, a TMBG reference. What's the reference like? It's not important. Banjooie 03:02, 10 December 2006 (CST)

Has anybody else noticed his Ascension count is 2 however under his Ascension history there's actually 6 ascensions, with 4 being lost in the time disaster and restarting after that?--Esko 23:22, 9 February 2007 (CST)

grammer plz?

it says he collects flyswatter... um, even though he sais it himself in his desplay case, shoudln't it be gramaticly correct on his wiki page and then list his gramatical error under notes?--CSDragon 20:13, 26 April 2007 (CDT) PS: because this is discussion i not do correct grammer crazy here :D

  • People like you make the Ghost of the English Language cry. Also, no - on his display case, he clearly collects "flyswatter", not "flyswatters". --Quietust (t|c) 21:16, 26 April 2007 (CDT)
    • I think that's what was he was trying to point out here. Saying that we should note that there is a "grammar error" in Jick's display case. And then list it grammatically correct in the actual article. At least that's what I got from it. --TheDotGamer 21:35, 26 April 2007 (CDT)
      • It's a joke... the joke being that Jick has a grand total of one flyswatter in his DC. Which he seems proud of, despite the fact that he could, if he wanted, have a collection of 72 hockey sticks in his DC. Correcting the grammar would ruin the joke, and if you're going to do that, you may as well get rid of the whole line. Phlip 08:25, 29 April 2007 (CDT)
        • OK, yno' that's why i asked, and btw thedotgamer had it right sorry for the confusion. I just thought that i should check :)--CSDragon 20:58, 8 May 2007 (CDT)

According to Jick's ascension history, he recently did a Hardcore Casual run. Somehow. Worth nothing in the article? --Missingno 17:57, 19 September 2007 (CDT)

Contacting Jick?

I'm very curious why there is nothing on his page of how to actually talk with Jick, I know he probably gets way to much feed back anyway but I would be willing to bet that he does like hearing from players with good ideas.--Moonmur 15:42, 9 November 2007 (CST)

Thats what the radio show is for, send your questions to radiobugbear.--Lord Poopypants 09:14, 6 December 2007 (CST)

New Avatar?

Could it be that animation he mentioned was included in the new content? And it also has "outfit" in it's name. --VlaxanV 15:03, 8 February 2008 (CST)

Zack

I am pretty sure he spells his name Zackary not Zachary. This is because there is a golfer called Zachary Johnson that he has spoken about on the radio and he made that point that at least they spell their first names differently. I'm gonna change it, but if someone else can confirm that it is Zachary chance it back. --The monkey 13:29, 15 June 2008 (CDT)

  • afaik, he spells it zack but he's a zachary. --Evilkolbot 13:42, 15 June 2008 (CDT)

Conebread

Jick's favorite food is Conebread. Any clue what that is? Undiscovered/Future content? --Creamy 21:24, 18 July 2008 (CDT)

D.I.V.O.R.C.E.

In a post on a blog Phoenix links to on her profile dated September 3, the last time she logged on she recounts being dumped. Does this mean Jick is now single? --Suship 20:50, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

  • you don't "get dumped" if you're married. so no, keep your hopes down. --Evilkolbot 22:03, 19 November 2009 (UTC)
  • I've heard him imply that they were divorced several times on the radio show recently. I can't remember the exact show but something was said about marriage and Jick added sarcastically "yeah, look how well that worked out for me." There was another reference somewhere about her taking half his stuff.--Stufff 18:23, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
    • What Jick says about on the radio with regards to his personal life is his prerogative. However, unless he himself decides that he wants the details of his marital affairs posted publicly, I do not think that this information should appear on the Wiki. Respect the dude's privacy, publicly, man. --Nightvol 17:40, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Of course not, but the whole thing is very strange. Whatever, it isn't relevant to Kingdom of Loathing in any way. --Suship 11:34, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

  • thinking about it, if my partner was always gadding off without me i'd feel dumped, too. especially if the relationship they had with the person they were gadding with was as publicly close as jick and hotstuff's is. perhaps you're right, he's spending so little time at home because the dream is over. --Evilkolbot 17:11, 21 November 2009 (UTC)


What is this, The Days Of Our Stick-Figure Lives? - Msanychta (talk|contribs) 13:11, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

  • four hours a week they allow us in. seems soapy to me. when's xeno going to step out of the shower? --Evilkolbot 17:02, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Noticed that after someone added this info to the page it was removed on "citation needed" grounds. Jick does state definitively on one of the radio shows that he used to be married. Don't recall which one, but it was probably 1-2 months ago.

If the info about them getting married is on the page, their separation should be mentioned. Otherwise it's just misleading. (I'm fine with removing all relationship style details.) --Starwed 17:33, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Yeah I feel like it would be better to just remove the relationship info from the page. Divorce information just seems "uncomfortable" to have on there. --Melon 18:03, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

I've taken the liberty of putting it back in. It's disingenuous to put in the start without the end. Since I've redone the page into sections, one of which is Personal Life very close to the bottom, it doesn't seem any more uncomfortable than having the proposal there in the first place. Quite happy to be overruled, but I don't believe it'd make sense to. --Chyld (talk) 09:52, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Look and Feel

Do you think we can make the top of the page a little like the top of my page? It would make for a better summary and it would make it look nicer.--User:Icon315/sig04:14, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Custom Title

Just so it can be added; I, darkbladed, gave Jick the custom-title "The <level> pound Birthday Creature" a couple of years ago on his birthday (near when the titles first came out). Darkbladed 13:51, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Profile

Jick's profile has changed. Check it on KOL. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Albino Toad (talkcontribs) on 2011 November 23

Jick's profile now has weird positive messages at the top of it about kenny kamAKAzi. I noticed after midnight EST, on Jan 18, 2017. I have no idea why, but I've been checking his profile regularly (I have Psychoanalyic Jars) and I don't believe it was there before now. I spotted it immediately as out of place, so I feel confident in saying it was not there yesterday. Oh, and as an experiment I closeted all my jars, and the messages persisted in appearing over his profile.--Godspeed (talk) 05:42, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Nothing exciting, he's probably just the Unmotivated text, which I guess that user used on Jick. --Fig bucket (talk) 12:55, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Ah crap. If I ever knew that status existed I forgot it. Thanks for the rollback. --Godspeed (talk) 05:43, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Obsession for Skeletons?

Maybe I'm the only person that's not getting the joke, but it would be nice if somebody could explain Jick's Obsession for Skeletons and Sweet Swords on this page. --Yatsufusa (talk) 01:00, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
