Just on contact points, does anybody know how to un-moderate a Wordpress blog? It seems as if that is the default state and darned if I know how to change that. --psygremlin 11:30, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Does this help?--Bob M 12:33, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for that! I've clicked what seem to be the right buttons. Somebody want to swing by and test it pleez? --psygremlin 12:58, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Dun. It's OK. Toast 13:10, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Schweet! Thanks. --psygremlin 13:43, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
If Ken finds the address you might want to moderate again ;-) (Kan I haz Smilies Please?)Toast 15:20, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Erk. I can just see a gazzilion "Gentleman! Your message is wrong. If you link to cp:Homosexuality you will see why Lord Shlafly prefers intellectuals over strangers he picks up in the park. Harder, deeper, faster!" --psygremlin 15:32, 22 August 2009 (UTC)


Clicking on "recent changes" there have been literally 0 edits in the last week. And you guys think RationalWikiWiki and Liberapedia are slow... SuperJosh 11:03, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

I added it as a joke. Phantom Hoover 19:40, 23 August 2009 (UTC)


Who owns the twitter account?--Bob M 02:47, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Dunno. Genghis? You're up early/late, Bob. Toast 02:49, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Couldn't sleep so I came on-line for a while. And you?--Bob M 06:32, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm the archetype of insomnia. Comes of living with someone who used to be on permanent night shift: we both run on a rather inverted timescale. Toast 16:29, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Where people come from[edit]

Looking at my site statistics of the 58 locations which people have linked in from this month, I can identify the six where RW associated traffic is coming from. (Updated on 25 August.)

  • Trent's RW blog 20
  • Wikiindex 7+4+1+1 = 13 (total of various hits)
  • Human at Ask 9
  • SuperJosh at Liberapedia 7
  • Sid at Ask 4
  • Bob M at Wikisynergy 3
  • Weaseloid at Wikipedia 3
  • Huw Powell at Wikipedia 1
  • Unidentified at ask 1

--Bob M 10:57, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Woo! Six! SuperJosh 13:59, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, you're the ace individual link at the moment. It's also ironic that although RW's relations with Liberapedia and Wikiindex aren't the best at the moment, between them they seem to have helped a number of individuals find this place.--Bob M 16:23, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
When people say LP and RW have bad relations I think it's mainly Proxima Centauri just irritating the RWians. I'm the only other active sysop on Liberapedia (unless you count Ajuk but he's there ever less than I) and obviously I'm fine on RW, a lot more active and such. There's only a couple of other users at Liberapedia after me and PC, and they're not very familiar with RW as far as I'm aware. SuperJosh 12:24, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
OK. When I made that comment recent changes on Wikiindex was awash with vitriol over the RW article and on the other side was the best known individual at LP. But it all seems to have blown over now.--Bob M 15:40, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
What Josh said about WI is the same for LP. Human 20:55, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Final analysis for how RW contacts came in in August. This a rough and ready calculation extracted visually from 87 different referring sites - the majority of which were looking at things related to English teaching.

  • Rationalwiki at Wikiindex: 49
  • Teflpedia at Wikiindex: 48
  • Human at ASK: 42
  • Liberapedia: 28
  • Rationalwiki at Liberapedia: 23
  • Trent's RW blog: 20
  • SuperJosh at Liberapedia 9
  • Wikiindex: 6
  • Sid at ASK:5
  • ASK: 4
  • Bob M at Wikisynergy:4
  • Weaseloid at Wikipedia 3
  • Gooniepunk at Wikisynergy:2
  • Huw Powell at Wikipedia 1
  • Nx at ASK: 1

It seems a bit strange that so many hits came from wikiindex. It is possible that casual users there clicked across to see what the fuss was about. --Bob M 18:45, 4 September 2009 (UTC)


I'm not complaining, but why is Liberapedia's main page linking to my blog? Well, according to my stats anyway. -- PsyWhut? 16:04, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Probably the wikiindex thing, I guess this is her way of saying sorry. Nx 21:04, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Why did Human remove the reference to Liberapedia? Was that vandalism? Proxima Centauri 10:19, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
Nah, PC cited your blog PsyGremlin shortly after I added the original welcome message. SuperJosh 10:29, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

If everyone's OK with it[edit]

I'm going to unilaterally merge this article with RationalWiki, on the basis that more people will see it there, notably visitors to the website who most likely would not search for an article entitled "contact points". No objections? OK. Good. SJ Debaser 10:00, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

You know what, scratch that. I'm just gonna make a new list on RationalWiki article. SJ Debaser 10:11, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
