Did you just take the absurd action of making Bohdan a sysop? Why?--Bobbing up 17:46, 14 November 2007 (EST)

I may have, yes. Because I need my daily dose of lulz. Locke User is Vandal/sysop Always Watching...... 17:50, 14 November 2007 (EST)
Ah well, if it keeps you happy that's all right then.--Bobbing up 17:51, 14 November 2007 (EST)

It's not like he hasn't been a sysop a bunch of times already. --Kels 17:52, 14 November 2007 (EST)

Yes, but I'm usually asleep, and when I come on line in the morning I see all the weird stuff that's been caused and think WTF. This is the first time I've seen it happen when I've been on line.--Bobbing up 17:55, 14 November 2007 (EST)
Yeah he's mostly harmless. CЯacke® 17:59, 14 November 2007 (EST)
I still think it's absurd, but I'm off to bed. :-) --Bobbing up 18:00, 14 November 2007 (EST)
Hey, as long as Locke/Pinto bean guy cleans up his pet's mess when they're done, it's all good fun. humanUser talk:Human 18:30, 14 November 2007 (EST)

Bart Fraden[edit]

Beat me to it, dammit. --Kels 14:37, 22 December 2007 (EST)

Heh, right place at the right time, you know. I just wish I'd got the block. Locke Eye.jpg Always Watching...... 14:39, 22 December 2007 (EST)

Sorry to steal your thunder. I'm sure he'll be back before dinnertime, though. I'll let y'all have at him then....PFoster 14:41, 22 December 2007 (EST)

Nah, I'm out of here in a half-hour for a Solstice get-together. Consider it your present. =3 --Kels 14:54, 22 December 2007 (EST)
Also, I can't see the guy's name without thinking GLAVEN! --Kels 15:02, 22 December 2007 (EST)

Nice one[edit]

Go on, don't be way too harsh, block me for 3 days, mmm. It's not harsh is it? </sarcasm> -- 22:16, 22 December 2007 (EST)

Why thank you, it's good to know my work is appreciated. Locke Eye.jpg Always Watching...... 22:26, 22 December 2007 (EST)
Stupid authoritarians. -- 22:30, 22 December 2007 (EST)
Authoritarian? Where? -- 22:33, 22 December 2007 (EST)

He was edit warring, and he said he had no intention of stopping, I feel it was justified. If anyone disagrees, please open a discussion here, and we'll try to work something out. Locke Eye.jpg Always Watching...... 22:34, 22 December 2007 (EST)

If you blocked Ryan for constantly deleting at NWO, I think you did the right thing. And 3 days seems reasonable considering he said he would keep doing it indefinitely. Just MHO, of course. By the way, don't/didn't you want to be renamed "Locke", Mr. Pinto bean guy? humanUser talk:Human 22:45, 22 December 2007 (EST)
I might leave it just to confuse people, thanks though. Locke Eye.jpg Always Watching...... 22:49, 22 December 2007 (EST) P.S. If I want to change it I have the power to. P.S.S. That is, indeed why he was blocked.
Ah, ok, cool, you can do it on your own. I'll quit bugging you about it for a while! And, that's what I thought. humanUser talk:Human 23:29, 22 December 2007 (EST)


u don't liek dem? ;____; --Mudkip.png I CAN HAS MUDKIPS? 15:41, 23 December 2007 (EST)

The next time[edit]

You feel like banhammering me, please for to make sure it is a blockable offense. YOU FUCKING MORON! CЯacke® 23:00, 9 January 2008 (EST)

You know that you coulda unblocked yourself, or just emailed me about it, right? Pinto's5150 Talk 23:07, 9 January 2008 (EST)
Oh, and calling someone a drag queen is a personal attack, unless the whole post was a joke, in which case I apologize. Pinto's5150 Talk 23:09, 9 January 2008 (EST)
It was an analogy, by saying what I did I made it clear that TK is tolerated but not entirely welcome as part of the "group". (This is all tongue-in-cheek, BTW, yes, I could have unblocked myself but when faced with these sorts of "justice" issues I don't think it fair to use my powerz to mine advantage...I waited out the block as if I were a lowly editor as should oughta be the case.)CЯacke® 23:15, 9 January 2008 (EST)
Sorry for being so quick on the block, I'm just tiring of this whole wiki vs. TK thing. Pinto's5150 Talk 23:20, 9 January 2008 (EST)

I protest this: "I waited out the block as if I were a lowly editor". What in the name of the Holy Goat is Cracker saying here? Is this CP? "Lowly editor" indeed! I demand he be blocked for no less than 2 minutes! --TK/MyTalkRemember: Communication actually works! 23:45, 9 January 2008 (EST)

Whe he is un-blocked I will block for 2. Pinto's5150 Talk 23:49, 9 January 2008 (EST)
Fair enough! --TK/MyTalkLowly editor 23:51, 9 January 2008 (EST)

Deletion record[edit]

When an admin (like you) deletes an article, does it automatically read, to use a recent example, "deleted "Goon Squad on a plane": content was: '#REDIRECT Goon Squad' (and the only contributor was 'Radioactive afikomen')"? Or do you have to put that in manually? Just curious, because it makes me feel like the article is "my fault", so to speak, when I see my name in there, and I feel a little bit embarrassed/guilty/silly. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 21:06, 13 January 2008 (EST)

It's automatic, I could get rid of it but I usually don't bother with mass deletions like this. Pinto's5150 Talk 21:08, 13 January 2008 (EST)
Thanks. I feel better now. :) --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 21:09, 13 January 2008 (EST)


The "on a plane" guy left this one and I can't revert for some reason.PFoster 21:24, 13 January 2008 (EST)

Perhaps because it was the original location? But, I'm not admin, so what do I know? — Unsigned, by: Radioactive afikomen / talk / contribs
Did that page ever even exist before this? Pinto's5150 Talk 21:32, 13 January 2008 (EST)
I just checked the history. Thunderkatz created Paleoconservative as a redirect to Paleocon. Later User:Snake Solid moved Paleocon to Paleocon on a plane. I felt the title "Paleocon" was too informal, so I moved it Paleoconservatism. So at the end of the day, we have a broken triple redirect. Did that help any? Or were you asking a completely different question that I wouldn't be able to answer? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 17:53, 14 January 2008 (EST)
If I may intrude, I think "paleoconservative" should be the article title. Whatever mess it takes to get there... but that's just my opinion. humanUser talk:Human 19:08, 14 January 2008 (EST)
RA, it does help, now I can make paleocon a redirect to Paleoconservatism and be done with it. Pinto's5150 Talk 19:23, 14 January 2008 (EST)

What happened to our wiki?[edit]

Is the old vandal wiki still operational? Can you get us a wiki? user talk:Bohdan 19:13, 15 January 2008 (EST)

You mean the wikia? I'll try to find it. Pinto's5150 Talk 19:24, 15 January 2008 (EST)
Here it is. Pinto's5150 Talk 19:35, 15 January 2008 (EST) P.S. It sucks, I know, but it's the best $0 could buy.
can €0 get us anything better? user talk:Bohdan 19:40, 15 January 2008 (EST)
Hello? Hello? answer the question! user talk:Bohdan 20:02, 15 January 2008 (EST)
Yes, it would buy us approximately one picobyte of server space. Pinto's5150 Talk 20:14, 15 January 2008 (EST)
  • "Is that really what we want this site to become?" - Why do you think I want us to get our own wiki? So far you and I are the only ones who have voted no. We will be the ones banned after TK. user talk:Bohdan 20:16, 15 January 2008 (EST)

Re: Demotion[edit]

I've changed my mind (again) on your offer to "demote" me. So, my answer is yes. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 15:37, 16 January 2008 (EST)


Indent Nazi!!! A user's userpage is his/her castle, and none may touch it. Their talk page is the moat, where all the crap gets trapped. And you peed in it! How dare you, you red balloon! --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 20:35, 17 January 2008 (EST)


Stop signing with my name! Locke 23:50, 4 February 2008 (EST)

Nevar! Pinto's5150 Talk 00:11, 5 February 2008 (EST)
OK, that was a strange response. Locke 00:15, 5 February 2008 (EST)
You expected less from me? Pinto's5150 Talk 00:17, 5 February 2008 (EST)
What are you talking about? Locke 00:18, 5 February 2008 (EST)
Well, I am the strange one around here. Pinto's5150 Talk 00:21, 5 February 2008 (EST)
This is getting really odd. Are you feeling alright? Locke 00:35, 5 February 2008 (EST)

Heh, I stole it from Hojimachong in the first place. Pinto's5150 Talk 22:49, 18 March 2008 (EDT)

excuse me?[edit]

What did you just do? Move me back to Locke. Now. Bohdan 314 02:37, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

I really, truly dislike saying this. But because Locke did not ask to be renamed, doesn't this qualify as abuse of bureaucrat powers? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 03:11, 27 March 2008 (EDT)
But it's Bohdan! (yes, I know all about this site, I've been browsing it anonymously since September '07) --Jake K 05:02, 27 March 2008 (EDT)
I don't think we can dismiss this just because the victim was an ass. A member's identity is of fundamental importance. Altering it should not be done lightly. By changing Locke's name against his will, Pinto violated one of the most important aspects of online communities. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:33, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

I am not calling for any sort of punishment upon you, Pinto. I just think you need to change his name back, consider what you've done, and apologize. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:33, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

I do apologize, perhaps an explanation is due? You see, IIRC this was sugested last time Locke was active but I never took action due to his leaving shortly after. That's the simple reason that upon seeing his return I took the action in question. Per consensus I will fix it when I am next at my computer (currently editing from Ipod.)

What does "IIRC" mean? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 08:36, 27 March 2008 (EDT)
In this case, it means "If I remember correctly". Pinto's5150 Talk 08:40, 27 March 2008 (EDT)
I try very hard not to be internet-savvy. This makes me ignorant of many things not worth knowing anyways. : ) --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 08:42, 27 March 2008 (EDT)
