Thanks Christopher (talk) 19:25, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

[edit] You're like some sort of non... giving-up... school guy!

Because of your edits to and time on the wiki, Autopatrolled has been added to your user rights. This allows you to bypass the CAPTCHA and edit more frequently. If you have questions, goat ask away.

And while we're increasing your ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ, some external tools:

  • Rbutr: Shows user-submitted rebuttals to your current webpage.
  • Google Scholar Button (Chrome, Firefox): Searches your highlighted text in Google Scholar. Easily check citations!
  • and Save permanent copies of webpages for future citation.

Also, see headline context here. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 10:04, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. Christopher (talk) 10:09, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Page deletions

For pages that don't require community discussion to be deleted, such as typos, spam and obvious vandalism, you don't need to go through the Articles for Deletion page. You can just notify someone with an administrator rights (which is pretty much anyone of the regulars).--ZooGuard (talk) 12:10, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

OK, thanks. Christopher (talk) 12:14, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Mop and bucket

Because of your edits to and time on the wiki, wizard Sysop has been added to your user rights. Feel free to let your newfound ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ course through your veins. Once the high wears off, see RationalWiki:Sysop guide for more information. If you have questions, goat ask away.--JorisEnter (talk) 17:00, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

Nooooooooo! Christopher (talk) 17:05, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

[edit] The Whataboutism edit

I see you reverted me here. Let me point out, that the same basic point is made in much more concise words here even with the same references and having the same basic thing in the text twice (with the same references to boot) is needless. I think my wording is much more concise and does not level accusations against one side exclusively or bring some weird attempt at justification into it. It says that both sides accuse the other of whataboutism and gives examples. I think we should not go into more detail on this page that is fundamentally not about anything but whataboutism. By the way, the problem with the captcha and the "vandal bin" or whatever it is called seems to persist. Can you check whether you did what you said you'd do or whether something with the software is not working?

"You are unable to edit because you have been placed into the vandal bin. You were put in the vandal bin by Owlman and the reason given was: "Autoblocked because your IP address has been recently used by "Zionist Goy". The reason given for Zionist Goy's block is: "Blanking page content: It wasn't fun while it lasted, Avenger, don't come again" ". While we hope you had fun, we had to do something, so you can only make one edit every 30 minutes now. If this is a mistake or you have turned a new leaf please alert any sysops. You will be able to edit again in 2 minutes. The block ID is #3126. Please include this in any queries. "

That is the error message. Zionist Goy (talk) 18:47, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

I don't know why you're still in the vandal bin because I definitely removed you and when I tried to do so again it said "this user isn't in the vandal bin", I suggest you discuss the whataboutism thing on the talk page before editing the article again. Christopher (talk) 18:54, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
Well, I hope you find what the problem is. Maybe try switching it off and back on again? (talk) 19:54, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Unbinning Zionist Goy

I see you unbinned Zionist Goy, I don't think that was wise. This user is likely AvengeroftheBoN who was banned for constant edit warring over a topic, Zionism and the I/P conflict, they concern troll for after they lost an Internet argument over it. This user has returned several times under new socks like Pizzamesiter, Laurogeita Hamabost, Jagulard, and Worzelpete; based on the fact that Zionist Goy's first edits were to RBP's talkpage and the deletion of sections concerning the I/P conflict, I would say this is yet another sock of this no-life. I leave to you to handle their mess. Good luck.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 19:27, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

I looked through some of the contributions of the socks and it looks like Zionist Goy is yet another sock. Apparently unbinning him didn't work anyway. Christopher (talk) 19:32, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
I was too hasty in assuming Zionist Goy to be a sock. Overall his edits seem to be fine. Christopher (talk) 19:03, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

[edit] My Edit

Hi, Why was my edit to the Time travel page reverted? It is explicitly stated at the top of that section that space and number, in addition to time, are also thought to constitute fictitious mental constructs by this same idea. Why, then, is it not okay for me to point out that, since movement through space both forward and back (for example) is undeniably possible, even if this view is correct, then, travel both forwards and backwards in time is not necessarily rendered impossible? Troodon Roar (talk) 18:34, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

Sorry about that, on closer inspection of what the edit actually said it's apparent that I misunderstood what you were implying. You're free to put it back (maybe make it a bit clearer what you were saying). Christopher (talk) 18:56, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
No problem, you're good. I was just a little confused, that's all. I'll re-add it, and try to clarify it a little. Thank you for understanding. Troodon Roar (talk) 19:12, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Sig


I don't know if you have done something odd to your signature but when you signed your last post I see my name. I don't know if my computer is possessed, old age is finally catching up with or if there is something odd your end. Any thoughts?--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 20:58, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

nope, it wasn't anything to do with you :). Christopher


21:02, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
In case you haven't caught it, it's just a <span class="myName"> messing around with you, heh. I myself thought it was some if function that some people like to use in their signature as well. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 21:18, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Cover blown. Better change it now... Christopher


21:22, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
I've seen similar ones before, but I didn't think anyone would actually use it in their own signature. Each to their own I suppose.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 21:23, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Doesn't DiamondDisc use it? (Allthough in his case it's "Not Anonymous user") or was it CheeseBurgerFace? I think it was cheeseburgerface actually. Christopher


21:41, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Wasn't there another earlier user who did the same? (Actually, I was looking to ask the same thing as Bob up here, but I found my answer). Ɀexcoiler Kingbolt Noooooooo! There's a roach on my Wall! 15:48, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

It'd be nice if you could indicate -- perhaps with a winking smiley -- that your sig isn't authentic. Pretty please. FuzzyCatPotato!™ (talk/stalk) 21:22, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

I'll do something. Christopher


21:32, 13 March 2017 (UTC)
DiamondDisc1 (talk · contribs · block  · rights  · rename) has a sig with Not {{USERNAME}}, where I guess the USERNAME part is taken from a random username, but that also uses that myName span class. But yeah, I also agree with FuzzyCatPotato to make things more obvious to people. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 04:02, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
I've kept it as just the standard signature for now. I know I could just change it in preferences but this way everything is public in the history. Christopher


15:46, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
this ok? Christopher


11:15, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
I don't really understand what this is about (a technical issue? a quantum joke?) but it is a bit confusing to see my pseudo on stuff that I didn't write (it seems to happen when someone uses curly braces instead of square brackets). --Cmonk (talk) 13:28, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
It's [[User:Christopher|<span class="myName">ASchlafly</span>]] I don't really know why I did it. (I did put Do You Believe That? after it at least though). Christopher

[edit] Ninja

Do you know how to use it? It would be great if you could, cause you're kinda clogging the RC feed at the moment Th hug.gif All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 19:35, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

I don't have it. Christopher


19:37, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
I've got rid of all of them (except recursion obviously) so it's fine now. Christopher


19:40, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

[edit] FYI

You may wish to go easy on the sysop tools, friend. There's already moderators on deck, and we're the ones primarily tasked with handling blocks and binnings, especially concerning Mikemikev. I hope this message finds you well. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 20:59, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

ok. Are you sure he's Mikemikev though? There are (unfortunately) loads of racists in the world and on the internet. Christopher


21:14, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
While I don't wish to openly disclose which exact hermeneutical techniquesWikipedia's W.svg I may or may not be using in order to determine — to an undisclosed degree of certainty — that it is in fact Mikemikev we're dealing with here, I'll say this much: there is a broader point here.
By which I mean, your basic assumption of good in others is itself very good of you to make. It's what we need. However! It's very important that you also note that the vandal bin does not prevent a user from posting anywhere on the site. It just makes a vandalous spree impossible from the same account.
Further; autopatrolling someone means that whoever autopatrols the user in question is deeming said user to be safe for editing mainspace articles without oversight from any other member of the community. That's clearly not the case with this person.
Now, crucially. Being patrolled doesn't make impossible posting or editing of any kind. Being vandal binned doesn't make impossible posting or editing of any kind. And — let's face it — this user is here to spam a single talkpage. I've already had to clean it up once from this sock alone.
For these reasons, and others, I'm willing to go with my decision as moderator to vandal bin this user at this point in time. And I hope that you will assume good faith not just on his part, but on mine as well. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 21:27, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, I realised that even if he wasn't Mikeminev it was a bad idea to autopatrol him, sorry. Christopher


21:30, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
No problem! It's why pencils have erasers Th hug.gif All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 21:33, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Florida department of Agriculture of Agriculture and Consumer Services

It's a meme that began as a trolling attempt ([RationalWiki:Saloon_bar/Archive99#Beg-A-Thon "not to troll, but..."]) by Conservapedia user and bygone pest DMorris. In other news, the only thing i do here these days is talk about those days. oh well... (talk) (Sophie/Bicycle wheel/about 53 socks) 15:53, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, I always thought that was a bit odd. Christopher


16:29, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
He's lying to you. RMF Board member here... Trust me when I say that 80-90% of what me and FCP do all day is file paperwork destined for the state of Florida. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 20:24, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Question

What is 'a confirmed mustard jar' (and do you ever 'cut the mustard'?)? (talk) 22:24, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

I honestly have no idea why that's in there. Christopher

[edit] Frank Christoph Schnitzler

Hello Christopher, Why is this article not here? Best regards Moni — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

I deleted it due to being completely irrelevant to rationalwiki's mission. Christopher (talk) 20:29, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Minor wiki

If that's your attitude towards this site, why do you bother contributing to it? (talk) 14:16, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Because I agree with its aims. I presume you don't? In which case why do you bother wandalizing it? (I presume you are the Romney vandal, <sarcasm>very original by the way</sarcasm>). Christopher (talk) 14:24, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
No, I'm the Grawp vandal, also known as countless other personas (some original, some copycat), and I saw a newbie vandal joining the cause from my ISP. I do it because I *don't* agree with its aims, and children read this nonsense, so the more people I annoy and run away, the less nonsense is affecting young minds. Believe me, I have run PLENTY of people away. (talk) 14:42, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
If you disagree with some of the stuff on this site why not simply debate on the relevant talk page? Christopher (talk) 14:43, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
What makes you think I don't do that too? I am known by MANY names. (talk) 14:44, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
I've been a candidate for moderator more than once, and one time it was pretty close... (talk) 14:47, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
If you've "been candidate for mod and have got pretty close" you must've also been contributing to the wiki (unless you were one of the joke candidates which I wouldn't class as "pretty close"). Christopher (talk) 14:50, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
Now you've got it! Two things RationalWiki doesn't know about fundamentalists: we can find ways to get along with those we disagree with, and we aren't completely boring and dry. (talk) 14:55, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
PS, you should really get rid of JorisEnter. He's an idiot, and he makes wandalism fun. (talk) 14:57, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
(edit conflict) oh so you're that kind of crazy. Oh actually know a fundamentalist Christian and they're not all idiots as such. He's quite a nice chap unless you mention teh gays. (He thinks we should stone gays to death).
I can't and wouldn't "get rid of" JorisEnter. May I ask how he makes wandalism fun? Christopher (talk) 15:03, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
BTW, I'm not the original Grawp from Wikipedia, but then again, neither is 80% of the Grawp socks over there. Grawp was a 4chan/ED army. (talk) 15:14, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
JorisEnter was stupid enough to hardblock a major state university NAT gateway for infinity because of me. If someone else wouldn't have cleaned up that mess, 15,000 diverse college students wouldn't have been able to edit RationalWiki from campus without a sysop account. That kind of stuff makes it fun. (talk) 15:14, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
I'm not sure if this IP is sufficiently entertaining to receive a "don't feed the troll" template or not. Nobody knew that health care vandalism could be so complicated.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 16:20, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
Another question: is he really a "fundamentalist"? He called himself a fundamentalist and not many of them do that. He also appears to have seen Harry Potter (GRAWP = some minor character, HAGGER = Hagrid HERMIE = Hermione PENCIL COLA = ??? (read his WP thing(allthough he says he isn't the "original")). Christopher (talk) 16:24, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
Pencil Cola = Retarded way of saying Pensacola, which did not appear in the actual Harry Potter series, so the original Grawp, who is a Harry Potter fan in California, never thought of that. Most people just mindlessly copy something without any original thought, that's why most religious debates are just regurgitations of evangelists' and atheistic authors' talking points. The real Herimone from Harry Potter probably isn't the type to sing in choirs or wear knee-length skirts, but hey, I'm autistic, so... Fun With Writing Utensils (talk) 17:04, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
Hey, aren't you kind of doxxing Grawp by talking about his Wikipedia page? Isn't that a big no-no here these days? Fun With Writing Utensils (talk) 17:06, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
That would be a very broad definition of either "doxxing" or "kind of". (talk) 17:16, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
True, but RationalWiki has a weird definition of doxxing. If I were to post the public WHOIS information about an IP address, RW would call that doxxing. I've been blocked for that before, so I would know. Fun With Writing Utensils (talk) 17:21, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
He's previously had accounts that are variations on "Grawp" blocked and had his page on TOW mentioned and he mentioned it earlier, also, TOW's page doesn't mention any personal information so I think it's fine. Christopher (talk) 18:09, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
