The time has come[edit]

for a new poll. That old one has literally been up for months, someone replace it already. Oxyaena Harass 06:34, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

I'd like to put a new poll up, but I don't know how. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 21:24, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
Neither do I, time to call @D, RW's underpaid handyman. Oxyaena Harass 22:01, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
Just put one on RationalWiki:To do list/Pointless polls. I think Kazitor used to be one of the main contributors to it. —RWRW (talk) 23:45, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
I put up a new poll. Better poll ideas are welcome though. — Dysk (contribs) 19:50, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

How Do You Get to Post to The Different WIGO's?[edit]

I wanted to ask a question about whether an edit/creating a new article under Hinduism was justified but I can't post to the Saloon Bar. Isn't the Saloon Bar supposed to be for posting anything? I thought maybe there might be an article under the Help section but I couldn't find anything. So... is it just the Talk sections then that function as the 'post anything' part? Is the Saloon Bar then for special posts that get promoted from the (hic) posts? How do you get access to the WIGO posts? Do you need to perhaps prove yourself through quality edits and posts? Cumulus (talk) 06:46, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

I believe you need to have been here a bit and made some edits, and occasionally pages get locked once in a while for various reason. AMassiveGay (talk) 07:06, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Any idea on how many edits and how long? How often and how long are pages locked? What are the various reasons? Cumulus (talk) 08:23, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Harassment of Oxyaena[edit]

I've been seeing relentless harassment of Oxyaena in saloon, both from IP and named users. This is beyond childish, and there has been a severe absence of mod intervention. I don't care what bones users on the wiki have to pick with her, this is pissing me off. Minish (talk) 14:52, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, I banned the latest BoN to try their luck, doubtless someone will either revert the ban or the BoN will simply change their IP, but nothing much else I can do about it. Lord knows I've tried. Oxyaena Harass 14:56, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
I've been reverting the harassment as I find it and blocking the offenders. There isn't much more we can do. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:59, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
Which I appreciate, I've noticed. Thanks. With this kind of format there's not much we can do, I mostly have taken to trying to ignore it now, not let it bother me as much, but it's still makes participating in this community less welcoming. Oxyaena Harass 15:04, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for doing what you can. I didn't realise that there isn't much that can be done in the long-term. Minish (talk) 15:09, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
Morris takes every opportunity to cause problems tbh. EK (talk) 14:00, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

Quick Question[edit]

Some of this place seems totally off the wall bat shit insane, and some of it seems serious and I can't tell what the intention is. So I'm asking if this wiki is ironic, or if some people use it as so and some people are serious, or if all of it's serious because I can't really figure it out. — Unsigned, by: / talk

It's a bit of both. БaбyЛuigiOнФire🚓(T|C) 22:02, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
To answer your question: yes. ShabiDOO 22:58, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

Collapsing drama?[edit]

Hey, I wasn't sure if I am allowed to collapse drama threads. I am pretty sure a lot of users don't want to read about it in the saloon. If I did collapse it without being allowed to, let me know. — Godless Raven SDAPOe logo.svg talkstalkwalkbalk 🌹 Flag of Europe.svg 13:46, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

its normally encouraged to collapse obvious trolling. EK (talk) 14:01, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
well... not sure if the drama is quality-wise better than trolling tho — Godless Raven SDAPOe logo.svg talkstalkwalkbalk 🌹 Flag of Europe.svg 14:04, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
I collapse stuff a lot. Sometimes I get a bit carried away, to the point that HBC once scolded me for collapsing a few of those awful Oxy/Cory flame wars, if a bit harshly. (And of course, I collapsed some of GR's.) All this drama from HBC, GR, and Oxy has made this saloon bar that was supposed to be fun a toxic cesspool ruled by someone you can bait with a pointless poll that isn't even about her specifically- and her arch-nemeses' (also toxic) drama isn't helping either. Heck, I even invented the following new collapse:
