Editorial notes

Incoherent, lumpy, jargon-filled and not a good intro to an outsider. We need this article to be really good because we are the go-to site on Conservapedia.[dubious]

[edit] What Conservapedia needs

... is a good dose of creativity (as distinct from Creationism), regular doses of the 'more interesting, 'Er What?' and lurid' chapters of the Bible, BibleCelebrityGossip (tm), irony traps, and exposure to the inherent contradictions in their arguments, until until they get into a mirror maze and vanish/undergo spontaneous combustion. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

[edit] I've got blocked without making a single edit

My userpage at Conservapedia got blocked by Andrew Schlafly within 10 minutes of me creating the account. However, if you look at my "User Contributions" page, you will see I did not do anything at all before getting blocked. Is this a common issue at Conservapedia?-- (talk) 19:08, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Oh, happened to me too! TeslaK20 (talk) 08:47, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Jeremy Corbyn

No article on the bearded one but several mentions including under cat ' It should also be noted that Jeremy Corbyn (the British Bernie Sanders) has a cat named "El Gato", due to a mispronunciation of the name "Fidel Castro".' (talk) 18:39, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Up-to-date

The 2016 U.S. presidential election page talks about the future nominees.

And the 'natural born citizens' does not mention Barry Goldwater (born in what was not yet a US state). Would there have been more of a birther case if Obama had been born before June 27, 1959 (the Hawaii referendum on becoming a US state)? (talk) 16:50, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Catch it before it is gone

Came across [1]

Conservapedia proven wrong

This article has been proposed for deletion. Please discuss this here.

This page list instances when Conservapedia has been shown to be wrong.

Currently none. (talk) 18:26, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

16TB hard drives are expensive and you would need one to store all the instances that Conservapedia has been wrong.--Mercian (talk) 22:45, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
'Wait six months' and you will get a flash drive that size. (talk) 14:35, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

On the selfsame day there is a comment on the talk page 'Maybe it's just me, but having this page as it is seems both unnecessary and pompous. Is this really beneficial?' and on 22 August 2016 the page was deleted with the comment 'content continually created by liberals against this website.'

Should [2] be included on the page? (talk) 12:22, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Stopped Clock?

I remember to have taken a look at some articles of Conservapedia. While they're pretty much terrible in both content and pictures (ie: rather short description of a large European country including to call them "socialists" and the like plus very badly chosen pictures -place in one of its towns instead of one of its capital-) the one on Dungeons & Dragons is at least quite well balanced and not full of Fundies' BS mentioned on the game's article here (maybe because of [3]. But who cares?. At least it was that way the last time I visited it)--Panzerfaust (talk) 00:23, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

That's interesting, considering the panic that roleplaying games caused in certain conservative circles back in the 80's and 90's. To some, roleplaying games were distinctly part of a plot to make kids chant black magic spells. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:26, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Yes, even here there was stuff of that kind. But not because of Satanism but of some ignorant/dishonest/both reporters instead who related a 90's crime with RPGs even if the criminal's "game" was just the result of his psichopathy and was anything but a RPG. That stigma, even if quite diminished, still lasts to this day. --Panzerfaust (talk) 00:38, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
You write "even here" — you mean, here at RationalWiki? Or some country other than the US? ^^ Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:22, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Oops, sorry. I meant other country, not US. As an aside, never mind the Ministery who's in charge about things such as education as well as professionals had later published articles defending the benefitial aspects of playing role-playing games (you mention them on the D&D article) --Panzerfaust (talk) 08:20, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
