Sysops should not be able to change the main page.[edit]

Sysops are not able to change the mission part of the main page, so why are they allowed to edit the most visited page on the entire site?𝗦𝗾𝗿𝘁-𝟭 talk stalk 06:59, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

  1. You never know when some troll comes by and vandalizes it. It's basically our job to make sure it stays clean as it is, and clean up any messes. Though I'm sure you already know that. Jake Holmesyell at me 13:23, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

Alfred’s theory of subtraction proves that the noughts can beat the crosses[edit]

As the editors here show, they always choose the crosses, so they are more advantaged, but the noughts have a trick up their sleeve if they pull up and use this theory in action. What a discovery! Noughts and crosses rules! (talk) 17:00, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

Page idea[edit]

Hello everyone, I had an idea for a page to be written up if anyone was interested (sorry for asking, I just joined rationalwiki and I have no idea how to create a page yet), there's a crank website called and there's no article on it on rationalwiki which makes me sad because I think we've possibly found another Andrew schalfy if not worse, is a website with all manner of conspiracies (as well as being extremely pro putin and anti American) relating to 9/11, moon landings' Zionism, anti Israel the whole nine yards, it's internet traffic is tiny but there's a lot of articles if anyone was interested in having a laugh and writing on it, anyway bye for now, Bobby2shoes (talk) 02:24, 1 June 2022 (UTC)

There are a lot of sites like that, just the other day I saw a local kookmobile decked out in faux-military stylings, calling itself 'The Disinformation Response Unit', with a website URL stenciled all over it. I checked it out and it was a typical wingnut site, it is easy to put up a site with links to YouTube videos made by the usual suspects. There are far too many of these to merit articles, and none of them are notable unless they commit a mass shooting. And that's probably why it's not a good idea to give these people any grief; the Shafly's of the world are too high-profile to commit violence over a RationalWiki write up, but these lone wingnuts are already unhinged. But if you want to write it, a more formal discussion on its notability would be warranted. FairDinkum (talk) 05:28, 23 October 2022 (UTC)


Isn't linking to RationalWiki excessive to be done twice? Deadbeef (talk) 12:58, 16 July 2022 (UTC)

A suggestion regarding translation[edit]

Just a small suggestion; Perhaps we should begin using DeepL translate when translating things instead of Google Translate? DeepL seems to be much more accurate from what I've seen and experienced, even if it's still a bit jank around the edges. TheOneAndOnlyCirrusMan (talk) 23:28, 29 September 2022 (UTC)
