RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $3500Goal: $3500

Don't worry everyone, Nx will do what he likes again. Aceace 06:12, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

It's a better solution than blocking you for violating the community standards. -- Nx / talk 06:23, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
What is abuse filter #6, and why is it not publicly visible? Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 06:14, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
Grawp vandalism. It's not publicly visible because that would let the vandal know what to avoid. -- Nx / talk 06:22, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
I'm going to recommend that Trent withdraw his offer to you and that you be discharged. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 07:26, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
Nx has done the right thing here. No one should be editing another user's page (as opposed to talk page), except in exceptional circumstances. An example of such exceptional circumstances, would be if a user had used their user page to host libel/defamation, and allowing tech and mods to edit the user's page is sufficient to cover those exceptional circumstances. Ideally, we'd have such a limitation for all user pages, whether across the board, or I think it would be better to be opt-in. However, where a particular user is experiencing this problem (as I have been recently), I think his solution is appropriate. It should not be limited just to myself, but extended to any other user who is facing the same problem. (((Zack Martin))) 08:55, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Nx, moving the talk page without the corresponding project page makes it so we don't know what we are talking about. Please fix ASAP. Kumquat west (talk) 08:42, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

There was no corresponding project page. This was originally the talk page of MediaWiki:Abusefilter-disallowed. -- Nx / talk 08:54, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
Problem solved, project page created. (((Zack Martin))) 09:01, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
