No mention of TK's aborted attempt to return with a plagiarised UCLA article which he denied/lied about? Followed by his 6 month sabbatical and return with a vengeance in November making a blatant grab for power by felching Andy? Redchuck.gif Генгисunbelieving 23:30, 12 February 2009 (EST)

Yeah, TK's rehabilitation is near the top of Andy's 2008 insanity, culminating on new years itself. PubliusTalk 23:32, 12 February 2009 (EST)

This is awesome, but I think the return of TK deserves a place in the top 10. Actually, 10 and 2 are sort of redundant, both being about "chivalry", so maybe one could be removed and replaced with TK? Also, I think the Glory of the Teens, in which Andy declares teenagers have been responsible for most of the world's accomplishments, should be in there too. DickTurpis 23:47, 12 February 2009 (EST)

It's a great start, and, yeah, it will get edited and improoved. But seriously, thanks for building this, Pi guy. (It was Pi, right?) ħumanUser talk:Human 00:38, 13 February 2009 (EST)
The top ten is based on the results of a poll Debate:Top_Ten_Conservapedia_Moments_of_2008 TK only secured 4 votes for his return, which put him at 13th. I am hoping he will do better this year. - User \pi 01:25, 13 February 2009 (EST)
Maybe there should be a Sysop section - DanH's retirement over the Obama article, PJR's attempts to have Andy's articles based on fact, the massive contributions by CollegeRepublican, Ed's pwnage at WP. Also, is there an equivalent article for 2007? I'll update my pageview stats when I get back home and post a chart for the total page views. (If you think Ken's obsessive with his running stats you should see my info). Redchuck.gif Генгисunbelieving 02:02, 13 February 2009 (EST)

Lenski and PNAS should really be the same entry, as the narrative just flows better in chronological order (and it was essentially the same hilarious story). PubliusTalk 16:02, 13 February 2009 (EST)

I thought the same thing. Neveruse513 16:08, 13 February 2009 (EST)
I agree, they were the same event, really. ħumanUser talk:Human 17:07, 13 February 2009 (EST)
If we do that it makes either Ed's RfA at WP or Ken's Operations number 10. - User \pi 22:26, 17 February 2009 (EST)
I vote for Operation hands down. Much hilarity ensued. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:02, 17 February 2009 (EST)
Okay I like that. An interesting fact for Richard Dawkins ♥ Hitler, richarddawkins.net gets about half as much traffic as CP again if anyone is looking for possible sense to Ken's plan. - User \pi 23:15, 17 February 2009 (EST)

While it's not reflected in an official vote, I still think Andy's assertions about teens and their accomplishments deserves mention, just because it is so obviously wrong (his Jesus/comedy thing would qualify as well, but it was 2009). Can we put some of these to some sort of initiative? DickTurpis 23:30, 17 February 2009 (EST)

I don't know how much Andy's teens and their accomplishments actaully exists. I get the impression the essay came from someone else (Bugler ?). Start collecting screenshots now though so it makes next year quicker to write. - User \pi 23:35, 17 February 2009 (EST)

Consolidate a little?[edit]

Seems to me the "Adultress" and "King Andy Version" entries, and the "Fair Maiden" and "Gurls iz Stoopid" entries, could be be squashed together, giving room for even MORE ConservaCrazy. --Gulik 00:05, 18 February 2009 (EST)

I agree. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:43, 18 February 2009 (EST)

Political Science[edit]

Funnily enough, Ace McWicked didn't don the disguise of a Political Science student. He actually is a political science student. Though far less young and naive as JJacob appeared to be. Ace McWickedRevolt 00:15, 18 February 2009 (EST)
