Menu Update: Everything Else.

As there is a annual bar meeting to bring booze to the bar for a taste test, how about the other stuff, namely the food and the non-alcoholic beverages. Perhaps this can help with building the dedicated menu for the bar itself. TheEternalOutsider (talk) 03:01, 3 October 2023 (UTC)

  • Dunno about non-alcoholic beverages, but i'm more than happy to mix some mojitos for everyone!

Here's the menu link. It's for booze, food, and more. TheEternalOutsider (talk) 01:15, 22 January 2024 (UTC)

Sarah Haider's recent descent into neo-reactionary garbage...

Hey, since we all know and have pointed out Ayaan Hirsi Ali being a transphobe, a Donald Trump apologist and incredibly reactionary liar, why haven't we made an article for Sarah Haider doing more or less the same thing? (maybe except for the donald trump apologia, though Haider is literally claimed US immigration policies in the past used to be better and these past polices were "better" than multiculturalism.) Can we make an article on how much of reactionary fool she is?

I learned about a lot of reactionaries from rational wiki maybe we ought to inform others that haven't gotten attention and the ones rational wiki hasn't criticized yet, the same way as well.

Initiatives Beyond RationalWiki

I am unsure who to find and talk to past RationalWiki for help involving taking action on topics like the fight against pseudoscience and alternative medicine.

I have a few questions involving stuff at the Bar, and all of which involve taking initiative beyond the confines of RationalWiki.

  1. As editors here, is there anything that can be done past here to push for projects and initiatives past this site and onto the rest of the real world?
  2. If collaboration with fact checking organizations like those at Poynter can be set up to tackle bunk and misinformation out there.
  3. Is the Bar a good place to rally up support for further projects?

Thanks for reading. TheEternalOutsider (talk) 04:55, 19 November 2023 (UTC)

@TheEternalOutsider The Bar would be a better place than the Back Alley. Not many people are going to see this. Spud (talk) 05:42, 19 November 2023 (UTC)

It would be nice to have a random saloon bar logo every time someone refreshes the page, and MediaWiki has all of the technical capabilities to do this. Should i give this idea a shot or nah? If yes, would using something like the Jack Daniels logo cause copyright problems?

I think it'd be best to find a public domain image or make your own. Also software issues again. Carthage (talk) 13:19, 17 December 2023 (UTC)
Software issues?

@TheAlePower because of what you did to your fucking signature, you twerp. I've had to undo it. Spud (talk) 13:24, 17 December 2023 (UTC)
And since you can't even get your own signature right, I wouldn't trust you to make any major changes to the look of the Saloon Bar. Spud (talk) 13:26, 17 December 2023 (UTC)
Okay, i think i fixed my signature for good. --

Spoiler warnings

So, I have a new idea for a topic, but it involves posting a spoiler for a video game that was recently published. How do I properly mark spoiler alerts? --Luigifan18 (talk) 05:22, 21 January 2024 (UTC)

I would imagine you could put it in the topic header or beyond that, if you want you could collapse it. Chillpilled (talk) 22:17, 21 January 2024 (UTC)

I know, I know, I'm bad at drawing. But I drew a little RationalWiki os-tan! :D she's got goat horns, goat eyes, and a sysop pin! i've had this idea in my head for a while but only drew it today. (mainly because i didn't know if there already was a rationalwiki-tan) --Chicken4War (talk) 19:02, 27 January 2024 (UTC)

It looks cute! --Goatspeed. Fossil evidence of my evolutionCircularREmail2.gifasoningPrototype lab 19:04, 27 January 2024 (UTC)
She's freaking adorable… are those little goat horns? --Luigifan18 (talk) 00:09, 15 February 2024 (UTC)
Neat. Carthage (talk) 00:21, 15 February 2024 (UTC)

Oh, for goat's sake…
