What is going on?

(talk) (talk) (talk) (talk) (hic)

We kinda have a policy of not linking to racist garbage like Maetpedia or Stromfornt (typos intentional). --transResident Transformers fanform! 18:23, 7 May 2008 (EDT)

We feed CP like this, don't we? And you'll notice I refrained from actually linking to them. — Unsigned, by: 85.25.151.22 / talk / contribs 18:26, 7 May 2008 (EDT)
Can't the site be configured in order to prevent links to feed their google rankings? (I'm assuming that's why the policy exists). NightFlareSpeak, mortal 18:30, 7 May 2008 (EDT)
It's already that way - links are "nofollow", as far as I know. humanUser talk:Human 18:34, 7 May 2008 (EDT)
That's accurate. --Linus(plot evil tech) 15:08, 10 May 2008 (EDT)

Oh, dear. I refuse to even open those sites... Sterilexx 18:46, 7 May 2008 (EDT)

So, why exactly is it that we have such policy? NightFlareSpeak, mortal 05:06, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
It was an "accident of acclamation". At the MP article, I once wrote under External links something like "we don't link to racist garbage", and then a series of RW editors reverted EL additions back to that. So everyone sort of agreed. As far as maintaining WIGO-reichworld, I see no problem with using appropriate links to illustrate points. We could always put a disclaimer at the top of the WIGO section warning those who get freaked out by neo-Nazism in the flesh (so to speak) that these links go somewhere rather uncivilized. By the way, did anyone add a link to here from metapedia and stormfront (and neo-Nazi and Nazi, etc.) yet? humanUser talk:Human 13:26, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
I think not. Jigsaw 14:06, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
Now there are. NightFlareSpeak, mortal 14:28, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

Intelligence gathered so far[edit]

For whoever is interested in MP:

  • Most editing in english MP seems to be done by NatAll75 and CHM8318
  • Most editing in spanish MP seems to be done by Walter Romero and Argentum 1976
  • Adding spoof looks easy enough to do for an amateur such as moi
  • They're so unmotivated to remove obvious vandalism it should probably be considered too cheap

--NightFlare

They're clearly not used to this kind of thing. The most annoying thing about MP is that we're going to have to set up sock accounts really slowly if we don't want to be spotted. If this was CP they would have banned the last five users to sign up as soon as we starting this discussion. MP just aren't paranoid enough... yet. — Unsigned, by: 85.25.151.22 / talk / contribs 13:01, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
Ehh, I don't understand. If MP is so not-paranoid why would we need to be so careful in setting up our socks? NightFlareSpeak, mortal 13:06, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
A dozen users signing up at the same time looks suspicious even to a neaderthal. But they haven't blocked that Old Swenson guy yet, have they? Not paranoid enough, I say! :)— Unsigned, by: 85.25.151.22 / talk / contribs 13:11, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
Well, of course that does look suspicious, but one or two accounts per day per person seems more than fine even considering the low activity they get. NightFlareSpeak, mortal 13:28, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
Excellent! They're going to end up with a "Sock to Human" ratio of about 30:1!— Unsigned, by: 85.25.151.22 / talk / contribs 13:33, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

Did you like my Old Swenson thing? It'll probably be a while until they start reading us so I wouldn't worry. Jigsaw 14:01, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

Indeed, it was most lulzworthy, and long may it stand unnoticed! I bet a couple of them are aware of RW, though -- we had Metapedians over here a while back, didn't we? They were fretting over the article we had about them.— Unsigned, by: 85.25.151.22 / talk / contribs 14:09, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
Now that you mention that, they probably will notice us soon. Its probably better that way though, it could accelerate their descend into paranoia. Jigsaw 14:19, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
Now you're talking :). I am fighting the urge to make a pun about your name...— Unsigned, by: 85.25.151.22 / talk / contribs 14:21, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

Couple things[edit]

  1. Namespace comes after fame and success prove its worthiness
  2. The WIGO voting mechanism is a backend program Trent wrote. If this gets rolling, we can ask him to duplicate it for WIGO Naziland.

'sup[edit]

Quite a few user pages just say "'sup". What does this mean?--Bobbing up 15:23, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

It means I couldn't think soon enough in something good to spam. Jigsaw 15:26, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
(Damn you and damn your damn edit conflicts) I think it means they've been sandalised by Sigjaw and no one noticed yet. Excellent. You know, I think we might be able to finish off Metapedia before the weekend.— Unsigned, by: 85.25.151.22 / talk / contribs 15:28, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

I'm toying with using this for a future WIFR, but for now I'll just stick a link to it here so I don't have to wade through all that crap again to relocate it: Ugly Aryans!

I really hate to ask this...[edit]

But, is this true? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 16:07, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

Looks like the answer may be yes & no. Check out snopes.com for their take on it. They are normally quite reliable. Jollyfish.gifGenghisIs the Pope a Catholic? 17:18, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

That really is a "Royal Flush" :D Fox 16:13, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

That's right, my radioactive friend! But we should be shush shush about this, really. They're not especially bright when it comes to weeding out parody/vandalism, so there's a good chance they won't even notice this. But did you see the others, too? — Unsigned, by: 85.25.151.22 / talk / contribs 16:14, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

Me too! That was you, was it? I think they probably know what's happening now.— Unsigned, by: 85.25.151.22 / talk / contribs 17:00, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
How do you know? They haven't even responded. Jigsaw 17:22, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
You're right. But next time they glance at RC they're sure to work it out, aren't they? And, in other news, I hope whoever's doing this is writing down the passwords. Some of the accounts will probably get through.— Unsigned, by: 85.25.151.22 / talk / contribs 17:27, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
From my (admittedly limited) experience, they really don't mind much whether something is a spoof or not and likely wouldn't see much wrong in so many new accounts in such a short time (if they notice the time logs at all, after all, they weren't around to perceive it). We probably should calm down a bit with the new accounts though. Jigsaw 17:40, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
Maybe somethings here could be deleted just in case. I doubt they'd bother checking our RC. Jollyfish.gifGenghisIs the Pope a Catholic? 17:45, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
I meant their RC. The one with scores of new accounts on it.— Unsigned, by: 85.25.151.22 / talk / contribs 17:48, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
Gawd, I hope you guys are around to help clean up the mess when the retaliation comes. If they figure out who is playing with them, anyway. Hint: Don't let on and maybe they'll just think it was anonymous. humanUser talk:Human 18:07, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
They've only had 2 obvious wandal attacks today, haven't they? Unless they do notice the spoofs (and I bet they won't) they'll think it was a single individual or 2 and we should stay undiscovered. Jigsaw 18:12, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

Holy shit, there is more than a hundred Star Wars things now. NightFlareSpeak, mortal 18:18, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

Hiding Identies[edit]

If people are going to go play with neo-nazis, shouldn't we deep-burn anything on RW that would let them trace any of us first. Sooner or later we will get visits from the Cyber-SS, and I think it would be wise to take precautions before finding a problem on our hands. Angband 13:50, 11 May 2008 (EDT)

Nah, the sysop-only pages were exposed by Tmtoulouse, icewedge, and Linus within hours of creation - all with different methods. I'd look for something more secure. --מְתֻרְגְּמָן שְׁלֹום

Delete?[edit]

We have not updated this since the 28th of July, almost two months ago, hence, I am nominating this article for deletion (not to mention that it is against our policy to link to site of this particular content). It was nice while it lasted, but I don't see much reason for it to go on. ĵ₳¥ášÇ♠ʘ sysop and 'crat! (does it matter?)

Well, it seems to be moderately active (like, a days worth of edits almost fills the page, as opposed to Wiki4CAM, which, frankly... anyway) but I'm not sure who keeps an eye on it or whether that activity is reportable. I don't think there's much need to delete the entire thing though but if there isn't a link to it via the main page like the other WIGOs it's not likely to recieve any attention from anyone. Is there any way of just integrating the metapedia stuff into the other WIGOs or somehow making a new category that includes it and others like it (as it's not particularly a blog, clog or news site)? ArmondikoVnarchist 22:28, 26 September 2008 (EDT)

Restarting 4R[edit]

In 13 March, there were about 300 edits in MP. CP's edits the same day were a hundred or two hundred more. 4R deserves to be alive.--Seonookim (talk) 07:24, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Coverage of Conservapedia gets grandfathered in because of its cultural importance to RationalWiki — it is not a measuring stick for the importance other sites. Ten edits a day on a racist wiki still makes for a very pathetic site not worth our attention.
