Shouldn't this be in the "help" space? ħumanUser talk:Human 22:14, 31 January 2009 (EST)

It's mainly for Trent (see saloon bar) so it's where he'll seee it. have a word with him & move it if you think it should be. Toast s.png (Toast) and marmalade 22:21, 31 January 2009 (EST)

I don't actually care where it is as long as I know where it is. Those of you "in the know" if you could start moving conversations involving tech issues to this page I would appreciate it. And if you see something new come up direct others here. tmtoulouse 23:15, 31 January 2009 (EST)

Should satisfied queries be archived or summat? Toast s.png (Toast) and marmalade 15:52, 3 February 2009 (EST)

Searching[edit]

To help wiki newbies out can we add a search box. It will require a fairly old extension in inputbox but I think people that are new will find it easier. - π 07:06, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

I have a sudden urge to put the "turning it on and off again" clip from the IT Crowd at the top of this page[edit]

I suspect, however, that it might not go down too well. Harmonic evil Phantom! 13:44, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

IRC[edit]

Is there an IRC channel for rationalWiki? If not, perhaps we should register one (I'm thinking freenode). --emc [TALK]

Actually there use to be something about that on the mainpage once, I'll go have a look. - π 11:28, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
Here. - π 11:31, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
I quit when someone (can't remember who) started saving it and publishing on wiki. Not that I'd said anything out of order - it just seemed to be a waste of time: the wiki talk pages are just as useful. yummy Toast&  honey(or marmalade) 18:49, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Renaming...[edit]

Can I get this account (SuperJosh) renamed to SJ and my sock account (LessThanAverageJosh) renamed to El Taj please and thank you very much. SJ Debaser 14:44, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

C'mon you bastards do it already! SJ Debaser 23:33, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
Our glorious oligarchs appear indisposed. ТyYes? 23:38, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
I got yelled at (I think) last time I renamed someone, but if you really want ask on my talk page. Once as SuperJosh asking to be SJ, and once as the other creature, with sigs on the fossil record, etc. Happy to help. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:58, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
Not having Human's 'baggage' I tried to rename SuperJosh to SJ but there already is a user with the name SJ who made a single edit back in 2008. I am loath to rename a previous user unless it was SuperJosh in the first place. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science.Moderator 08:08, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

I've renamed the LessThanAverageJosh account as requested. Alas, as Gengis pointed out, the account name "SJ" already exists. The Punk Symphony of Noise Your mental puke relief 08:12, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank y'all, Human, Genghis, RNS. SJ Debaser 11:53, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
Not a problem. If you need anything else, you know where to find me under a rock somewhere. The Punk Symphony of Noise Your mental puke relief 11:58, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Useless assholes[edit]

Nice work at simply being rude. Hope you don't still have the tech rights you don't deserve. It is still broken after a freaking month. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:10, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Human, I don't think you get to call anybody rude. And honestly, Nx was just responding to your own pattern of asshole behavior.--"Shut up, Brx." 04:29, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
What were you expecting to happen? You were abusive to him and he left like you wanted. Nobody else wants the tech job because they saw how you treated him. Now something is broken and there is no one left to care. - π 07:43, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, let's face it Human, you have pretty much pissed off anyone who would ever be able to solve any of your technical problems on the internet - and yet when they don't come running to help you with a problem that's entirely at your end and seems to affect no one else, you wonder why no one is interested?

Unprofessional Subject Discussions - Information Bullying (Racism, Sexism, Name calling, Bigotry, ect...)[edit]

Just so you know, I used print screen to save the discussion that was being made. You guys really are idiotic.

"Oh lets remove that discussion, because we are so cowardly that we cannot properly discuss something that is against our beliefs about being bias to rationality."

Make up as much garbage you cannot intellectually defend as much as you want. You underestimate my abilities and that is gonna cost ya. Maybe I should blackmail you guys, since you are not going to have your way in removing what I say outright. Well you could, but then, it might hurt you image even more. This is a losing fight for you guy. Give in to rationality, actual rationality, not this religious safe space you created for yourselves, before you end up being the laughing stock of the internet.

Pressing Print Screen and will save. Tootles. ~ The Lord of Existence.

No, the discussion was just move to its correct place, the MGTOW talk page. Go here, Talk:Men_Going_Their_Own_Way. Petey Plane (talk) 19:30, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
What a total twillock! Pippa (talk) 19:32, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
Here, BoN if you're so incapable. Pippa (talk) 19:33, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
Actually, it would have been a good idea to leave a link here so that the IP poster - who is quite probably not familiar with wikis - could have seen where his comments had been moved to.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 20:13, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
It's linked twice above, Bob, but yes it would have made sense to leave a link at the same time as moving it. Pippa (talk) 20:19, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
You're right, i should have rather than just delete the section after the move. My bad, but we did try to correct it. The BoN already appear to have his mind made up, though. Petey Plane (talk) 20:20, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
