Carbon Dating (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View log)



  1. Shameless Self Promotion Zero (talk) 17:09, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
  2. It's linked at WIGO Webcomics, which seems enough. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 14:19, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
  3. Why not just delete the whole wiki while you're at it? I didn't realize this was for a web comic. RW has become a dumping ground for too much non-mission nonsense just because it's some editor's pet issue or interest. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 22:10, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
  4. Some BoN drove by and posted a thing about a new webcomic. Apparently it has some stuff about pseudoscience. (reads a few) and it's not even especially interesting. SophieWilderModerator 08:49, 20 March 2014 (UTC)


  1. Seems appropriate per the mission, but the self-promo is off-putting. Perhaps a subsection of something else? Aboriginal Noise (talk) 01:14, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
  2. ehhhh *waves hand in air* - David Gerard (talk) 10:36, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
  3. #REDIRECT [[radiometric dating]] Sterilesig.svgtalk 20:44, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
    Are you thinking of Carbon dating (the radiometric age measurement method), or Carbon Dating (the webcomic)? This page is about the webcomic. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 22:20, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
    On that note, if we do keep the page on the comic, we should probably move it to "Carbon Dating (webcomic)" to prevent just this sort of confusion. Capitalization doesn't really disambiguate in the typical reader's eye. Wehpudicabok [話] [変] [留] 22:23, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
    Sorry, webcomic fanboys, the webcomic page shouldn't exist at all. Sterilesig.svgtalk 22:59, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
  4. Change title as above. (nothing inherently wrong with self promotion if it's worth it) Scream!! (talk) 22:52, 17 March 2014 (UTC)


  • Sheesh. Have any of you guys actually looked at the webcomic? Pretty uniformly four panels of two talking heads saying mildly interesting things. Occasional buzzwords tangentially related to the mission, with pseudoscience debunkery only in homeopathic doses. I'm not even sure it deserves to be included in WIGO webcomix. Any fanboys here on RW? This is the place to out yourselves. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 23:46, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
