[edit] Yo dawg

I heard that you were sober and bored. How's shit going? MĖSSIÅH ØF DØØM And joyously screams out its painDolan.png 09:47, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Going well, albeit bored. I'm not used to being up this late and having no substances at all (not even caffeine) in my system. I'm 2 weeks in on this whole "No drinking/smoking/coffee/other things for a while" shit that I started as a way to get my health issues under control. Unfortunately, this has made me realize that being awake until 6:00 a.m while stone-cold sober without even so much as coffee or a smoke is terribly boring and actually makes me act like a drunkard. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:53, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
That must suck. I understand the boredom and tiredness stuff you're talking about. Studying for exams until 3 am every day for the past couple of weeks has really left me in the same kinda situation. GØØBY PLS The epitome of Gods and Men alike Dolan.png 10:12, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
Ick. No fun at all. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 10:15, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
Meh, it was worth it. I totally pwned that shit. DØØM MĖSSIÅH Suffer the stormsDolan.png 09:01, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, how I wish I was still just a full-time college student. Sure, there's the poverty of the situation to bemoan (or deal with the way that I would), but there's also a certain level of freedom to experiment and think for yourself and a level of error that you are allowed that you don't get once you reach the professional world. If I knew back in college what would happen after college, I would've tried my best to just stay in college. Perhaps, of course, that's a sign that I'm in the wrong profession. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:05, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Well, it sure as fuck beats high school. What university education did you get? DØØM MĖSSIÅH Remembrance of the transcending moonDolan.png 09:12, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
I am a mechanical engineer by trade, though I have currently found myself in the dual role as one of the bosses. I will say that the most curious thing ever in my schooling career was that, in high school, they tell you ever goddamn day, "This is going to prepare you for college." Then, you get to college, and all the professors for the first year tell you that you are starting with the basics because nobody ever comes out of high school truly prepared for college. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:21, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Grade-wise, I completely aced high-school, leaving with an OP1, and I found that the only real struggle I ha going from high-school to uni was that it was a lot less structured, which didn't really work out for me at first. The problem I had with highschool was just that people were such cunts, y'know? But the uni people are (mostly) pre' kewl. MĖSSIÅH ØF DØØM Deaf and blind and dumb and born to followDolan.png 09:27, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I completely understand. I loved everybody in college, even the ones that I knew I couldn't stand outside of the college's walls. To be honest, I am glad that I chose college over what my original plan was, even though that plan was working and I miss it sometimes. In reality, it wouldn't have been sustainable and I would've been damned to have settled for an entry level job or something. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:33, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
What was your original plan? MĖSSIÅH ØF DØØM Dark seas of endless pain…Dolan.png 09:36, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I thought I could drop out of society, and had for a while. There are, of course, extenuating circumstances that helped my cause, but I won't get into those. But for about 7 months when I was 19-20, I was an aimless drifter/hobo living off of dumpster diving, train hopping, hitchhiking (yes, it's still a thing), and panhandling. It was an adventure, to be sure. But one of the most dangerous things I've ever done and something that, looking back on it, I will never repeat (until I have a mid-life crisis, of course). Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:47, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Mmm, that sounds pretty interesting, actually. Being a doctor/medical research has always pretty much been my Plan A since I was about 15, which is what I'm studying for now, but, for a little while, I thought that I was gonna be a lawyer. But then I realised that law was boring as batshit. DØØM MĖSSIÅH What is this that stands before me?Dolan.png 10:09, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
If you are bored, would you like some light reading to pass the time? :D --ZooGuard (talk) 09:28, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Ooooh, looks fun. Thank you ZooGuard! Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:33, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Cool shit, part II

Don't worry, no 20 minute songs this time. Also, please ignore the terrible sounding shit in the suggested videos. DØØM MĖSSIÅH Don't read look every behind second you wordDolan.png 10:21, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Not bad. Thanks for sharing. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 07:41, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Do you think

[edit] LQT

Say that I was to want to apply LQT to my talkpage. How would I go about doing such a thing? I apologise if this info can be found somewhere else- I looked in, like, three places, then gave up. So yeah, could you please help me with this? Thanx br0. GØØBY PLS I know the pieces fit, because I watched them fall awayDolan.png 11:42, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

A better idea: don't. LQT is not maintained, which means that at some point, an update to MediaWiki may break it. RW's instance was already partially broken by an update (e.g. the toolbar doesn't load). Otherwise, if you are willing to take the risk, the instructions are here: mw:Extension:LiquidThreads #User documentation. It's a good idea to archive the previous contents of your talk page first and provide a link to the archive.
P.S. Also, this should have been directed towards RationalWiki: Technical support.--ZooGuard (talk) 13:17, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
See also RationalWiki:LiquidThreads. WëäŝëïöïďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 13:40, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Dangit, Dolan, just when my estimation of your RW activities had risen to "useful, and not an idiot," you go and ask something like this. ZooGuard's first bit of advice, viz. and to wit, "don't" is worth repeating, IMO. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 13:51, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
K. I just saw it as a thing and I was like "heh, might try that shit". I was unaware that it was all dodgy and shit. THE GREAT RIGHTEØUS DESTRØYER Too close enough to touchDolan.png 13:59, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Also, I would have put it on tech support- however, I thought that it was only for when shit wasn't working, not for asking questions about stuff that everyone else knows. GØØBY PLS Sorry if I piss you offDolan.png 04:26, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
If I were you, I'd stay away from LQT. It seemed like a good idea back in the day, but given how unstable it is and the fact that MediaWiki no longer supports it, you're better off avoiding it altogether. Trust me, there is a good reason why I stopped using LQT, even though I had been an huge advocate of switching to it back in the day. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 06:00, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Cool, I'll keep that in mind. It just looked cool when I saw it. MESSIAH OF DOOM Reaching out to embrace the randomDolan.png 06:04, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I think it's far superior as a talkpage format, but it is so buggy that it's not really worth the effort, especially since it being functional is dependent on whether the techies at RationalWiki care enough to fix it. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 06:07, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Ah, okay. Also, sorry for spamming your talkpage with useless shit about LQT and cake and dumplings and whatnot. MESSIAH OF DOOM Wired were the eyes of a horse on a jet pilotDolan.png 06:09, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
It happens. I've often found that changing troll posts into discussions about things like food are music are the ultimate ways to repel further trolling. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 06:11, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Retirement

Oh no you fucking don't. Please, the Wiki needs your musical genius and your calmness and your amazing person-ness. Please stay. Seriously, if you quit, I'm fucking quitting with you. THE GREAT RIGHTEØUS DESTRØYER …Sate the Suicide ChoirDolan.png 10:14, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm not gone for good. I just am not going to have time to hang out here for a while. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 17:18, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
So, you're just having a break kinda thing? That's okay, then. MESSIAH OF DOOM Push the envelope, watch it bendDolan.png 00:16, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Bot account (sticky)

NoiseBot, for editing Edit Filters and not clogging up RC. NoiseBot (talk) 05:16, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

That red button- what does it do? Should I press it? MĖSSIÅH ØF DØØM Weird attention whoreDolan.png 05:35, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
It blocks that account. Only press it if that bot goes awry or, in this case, if an edit filter goes haywire as a means of drawing my attention to an edit filter problem. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 06:25, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Concerning the New Deal

"Especially, it must be discussed if you leave no real sources in your edits with which we can fact check your assertions."

Actually, it was sourced extensively. I put in seven new footnotes and multiple graphs and charts.— Unsigned, by: The Honest Intellectual / talk / contribs

And none of the actual footnotes were very good. Cato Institute as a source? Really? Worse, the reputable sources like Wikipedia didn't help draw the conclusions you were drawing. As I said before, the best place to discuss your revisions would've been the talkpage. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 08:52, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Can I please be a ninja?

I mean, I spend most of my mainspace edits just, like, fuckin', deredding and correcting grammar. So yeah, I mean, you don't have to, and I don't really mind either way. I was just thinking that, you know… THE GREAT RIGHTEØUS DESTRØYER Adorn the new king…Dolan.png 05:46, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

What specifically would you want/need to "bot" yourself for? Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:01, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Just fuckin' small shit, like, fuckin', redlinks and grammar and stub templates and shit- for example, last night (well, night for me), I went through and deleted a whole bunch of links to a deleted page. I mean, like, it's not that big of a deal whether I am or not, but I guess it would be cool. Also, if I ever get annoying with all this questiony shit, feel free to tell me. MESSIAH OF DOOM …But spirit is foulest, devoid, askewDolan.png 12:39, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
I was wondering about this meself the other day when DM was making his presence felt in RC with an unredlinking project. Kindly consider this a good word put in, Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 14:12, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] You're in charge of edit filter, right?

Because, yeah, it's good to have a machine do shit so I can sleep. Much appreciated. MĖSSIÅH ØF DØØM Cacophonous aura of illness and woeDolan.png 13:50, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

I help maintain them, yes. But nobody actually is in charge of them. People with technical rights just have the power to oversee them and edit them. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 20:46, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] DFTT

Hi. Sorry for bothering but at least Brx and I hope a couple others seem to have decided to minimally tolerate my existence for now, and I'm putting up some texts on my talk page. So could you please remove the filters? I promise not to spam crap here and there; if I do you can just ban this account and put the filter back in place I suppose. I'm also already assuming that for now I'm banned from even creating any topics at all in the forum which talk about the topics I've been talking about. Likewise on the Saloon Bar and Chicken Coop, users' talk pages other than my own, etc. I suppose I will limit activity to my own user page, talk page, the "child sexual abuse" page, and the talk page of that. Is that OK? Drotsky (talk) 18:12, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Brx is an accommodationist idiot. As somebody who does his best to represent to best interests of the RationalMedia Foundation, I have zero intention of removing the abuse filters. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 20:46, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Do you have a Facebook?

If so, could you please friend me? You can find me at "Cal Doommessiah". Thx m9. DØØM MĖSSIÅH Deaf and blind and dumb and born to followDolan.png 05:50, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Your thing at the SB

Have 666 applauses for that. You fucking win. DØØM MĖSSIÅH Push the envelope, watch it bendDolan.png 13:07, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. Unfortunately, that kind of idiotic bullshit has gotten me to recoil away from this place. I know I had some unfinished business over at talk:New Deal, but my heart and mind aren't into this place at the moment. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:16, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry, be happy. The tide washes this way and that. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 12:39, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] magic robot powers

Could we have some to make the thomas the tank enginge shit not happen? Your the only person i know who knows the edit filters enough (that i remember) to do that.--Miekal 16:58, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Give me some links (even red) to where it was occurring and I will get to work on it when I get home. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 19:57, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
