[edit] Postmodern Christianity.

You think of this?: Indeed, the link between contemporary religious conservatism and postmodernism is perverse. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

[edit] The Corbett Report

I thought it fair to bring this to your attention, since it peripherally involves an article on this site, James Corbett, and I've documented a brief history on the talk page summarizing recent events. Regardless of whether you care about or even agree with "fake news" or not, it might be interesting to see what traffic differences, if any, occur due to whatever attention this may or may not get. I am posting this on Main Page talk page and the Saloon Bar because I'm not sure which is appropriate. Feel free to delete one of them if necessary.

[edit] RW hats

When Christmas hat goes, can we have some other decorations? (After all the first Valentine's Day cards are out.) (talk) 16:24, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

I was going to suggest a fez, but then I found out the Nazis wore them. Now I don't know what to believe anymore. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 16:32, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
Hats are not just for Christmas (nor are most pets). (talk) 16:46, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
But could it really follow that most pets are ultimately hats? Reverend Black Percy (talk) 17:01, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
If you wish to get up and do something, your cat will decide that it is a very good hat :) (and passing mention of a certain book applies).
Perhaps if the brackets are reversed we could have the RW spider crawling around? (talk) 17:18, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
...There's an RW spider? Reverend Black Percy (talk) 17:25, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
Thusly ]](brain)[[ (you can see a version in action here [1]).

Perhaps an Uncle Sam hat for July 4, a Marianne Phrygian cap for July 14, a Leprechaun hat for St Patrick's day... All good clean fun :) (talk) 18:38, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Hat comes down January 6th, as is proper (unless someone takes it down before then) - David Gerard (talk) 00:52, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
No Nazi fez, in other words? Reverend Black Percy (talk) 08:54, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps there could be a funspace 'decorated RW logo' page to which people could post their artworks.

The only drawback to logo-hats might be occasional accusations of [2]. (talk) 16:53, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

So what could we have next? A little red heart for Valentine's Day? (talk) 15:14, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

How artistic are you feeling? - David Gerard (talk) 22:02, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Can I remove content from my talk page?

? CheeseburgerFace has locked my talk page because I removed some comments I put there. Where is it written that I cannot do this? And what are the rules vis-a-vis delete someone else's comments in the Saloon, because CheeseburgerFace deleted mine yesterday? Levi Ackerman (talk) 06:36, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Realised you were in breach of the rules, did you, CheeseburgerFace? Lol.Levi Ackerman (talk) 07:06, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Please note, it was CheeseburgerFace who moved this topic to this page. I was originally posted in the Saloon. So I find odd that he would move it to a more serious page and then try to convince people not to participate in discussion. :/ Also. — Unsigned, by: Levi Ackerman / talk / contribs 07:29, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Is a user (with the relevant rights) allowed to lock another user's talk page and do so indefinitely?

CheeseburgerFace appears to be doing so currently to Levi Ackerman.Levi Ackerman (talk) 07:27, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

You don't have the right to remove discussion from talk pages, even your own, because the whole point of this site is constructive dialogue. Diacelium (talk) 12:24, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Generally, you're only allowed to remove outright trolling from your user talk page, but you can archive old threads. The tradition of not being allowed to scrub your user talk page is well-established at RW. ScepticWombat (talk) 14:38, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
{ping|CheeseburgerFace}} you hear that assface, I mean, CheeseburgerFace, "You don't have the right to remove discussion from talk pages". Levi Ackerman (talk) 12:34, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
"CheeseburgerFace locked my talk page because I deleted some comments" "I don't have the right to remove comments, take that CheeseburgerFace !" Wow. Diacelium (talk) 13:15, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
Apart from the fact that he now seems to be veering into naked trolling, I think that Levi either misses or deliberately ignores that moving a debate from a user talk page to a more relevant talk page while leaving a redirect is not the same as simply deleting content from a user talk page (i.e. scrubbing), but is similar to archiving old threads: Neither approach involves simply wiping the information.
