Editorial notes

Incoherent, lumpy, jargon-filled and not a good intro to an outsider. We need this article to be really good because we are the go-to site on Conservapedia.[dubious]

What Conservapedia needs[edit]

... is a good dose of creativity (as distinct from Creationism), regular doses of the 'more interesting, 'Er What?' and lurid' chapters of the Bible, BibleCelebrityGossip (tm), irony traps, and exposure to the inherent contradictions in their arguments, until until they get into a mirror maze and vanish/undergo spontaneous combustion. — Unsigned, by: 212.85.6.26 / talk / contribs

Where's Conservapedia's true quote that says "sentences should not be facts."?[edit]

Where is the citations of Convervapedia's quote that says "sentences should not be facts? I can't find it in this article because there is no citation for it. Please, cite or give proof that this is Conservapedia's true quote "sentences should not be facts". Cite the proof here:

Problems with CP[edit]

Have tried two different browsers and going via RW - there is a 'Your connection isn't private [do not proceed]' message.

Would a link to [1] be appropriate? Anna Livia (talk) 12:22, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

Their security licence has expired. Unfortunately, it will probably be fixed soon. I say, "Do nothing." Spud (talk) 12:41, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
Given it is CP and the intermittent discussions here, reasonable to mention the site. Anna Livia (talk) 13:14, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
Why is it that they never seem in control of their own website? Is it incompetence or carelessness? IveBeenFrank (talk) 13:17, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
Minimal overlap of technically-competent people and contributors (and the know-it-all-teenagers are otherwise involved). Anna Livia (talk) 13:49, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

I got banned from Conservapedia. Wanna know why?[edit]

Because I said that certain statements should have citations. Maybe that explains their shitty article quality. TheOneAndOnlyCirrusMan (talk) 04:54, 19 June 2021 (UTC)

That could possibly be a reason but you signed up as "ArticleNeedsCitation" and it can read as a troll account or not adhering to their ludicrous username standards, but Conservapedia's community is still dumber than a sad crop of pansies. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 06:40, 19 June 2021 (UTC)

My essay mentioning the main problems with Conservapedia[edit]

I wrote an essay on CP where I mention the main problems of Conservapedia. I've interacted with some of the people there, and I think that they are inherently nice people, even though I don't agree with their views, but I think they need to fix these problems ASAP. This is why I am fine with using my real name here, but not on CP. (But to be honest, I'm not a huge fan of this website either. I spend most of my time on WP.) https://conservapedia.com/Essay:The_Problems_with_Conservapedia Félix An (talk) 19:27, 16 October 2021 (UTC)

Perhaps showing one of the problems of Conservapedia, I wasn't able to view that essay until looking directly at the edit. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 19:39, 16 October 2021 (UTC)
still pretty sure everything over at conservapedia can be explained by them all being pricks AMassiveGay (talk) 19:54, 16 October 2021 (UTC)
and schafly getting trounced for pres of the harvard law review by future pres barack obama. why isnt that in this article? AMassiveGay (talk) 20:04, 16 October 2021 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I don't find regular editors at Conservapedia nice people. It doesn't take an essay to know this. They might be misguided bigots, but they're still raging bigots who promote causes denigrating and harming other people, and they have one admin they never bother telling off that's been registering and constantly harassing us on this wiki. Maybe have Conservapedia start there dealing with that guy. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 20:39, 16 October 2021 (UTC)
