Hello unity. I am the circumference of a circle with you as the radius, as you can see I get around. - π 11:44, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Pro Tip[edit]

Your lists.

Moar proer tip[edit]

Even more proer tip: Category:Conservapedia. Saves the cpu from completely unnecessary work. -- Nx / talk 23:53, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
True, but he seems intent on making lists. - π 23:54, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
Mind you, he could save both his and the cpu's time with a few API queries. - π 23:56, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
Is Category:Conservapedia not a list? -- Nx / talk 23:56, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
Obviously not to his satisfaction. - π 00:00, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
All very neat ideas but I'm trying to break down the CP pages into sub-categories. That code thing above might be useful though, for retrieving stuff from the CP category that doesn't appear in the CP namespace. Ta! ONE / TALK 09:04, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Your or the actual cat tree? Because by putting category=conservapeida* you get everything in that cat, including the subcats. - π 04:17, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

A pat on the back[edit]

Congratulations! Our student advisory board has decided you meet our incredibly low standards of "mostly harmless" and has mde you a sysop. Here's your reference book. The Goonie 1 What's this button do? Uh oh.... 18:44, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Your name[edit]

It's simple. I like it. (Though you may have inspired me to rename myself to "0".) Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 11:14, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

WIGO CP[edit]

Thank you for improving it. I had no idea what the original WIGO was about. Keegscee (talk) 20:41, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Deleting pages?[edit]

We got a template for that. ( {{delete}} ). Discussion is nice. Some people might like the page in question. thanks. P-Foster (talk) 15:44, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Srsly. Stop deleting pages--even crap ones--without discussion. P-Foster (talk) 15:47, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
I made a section on the saloon bar about my intention to delete some pages. Even that didn't get a whole lot of discussion. I fear that if i use an AFD template on each one of dozens of articles, there won't be any discussion, and I'll end up deleting them anyway out of lack of interest. I'm not really a fan of waiting that long to clean up the CP namespace. Also, I strongly suspect the deletions I'm making are likely to get unanimous consent. I think it would be a lot easier to delete the articles first, and let people restore them if their deletion is contested. It's not like I'm doing anything irreversible. ONE / TALK 15:50, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
Most of it wouldn't be missed by me. Although flagging the {{delete}} template up would probably be best. Scarlet A.pngd hominem 15:51, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
I do intend on using that template for articles that I suspect will be defended by someone. ONE / TALK 15:53, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
EC If you're so sure that AFD tags will get unanimous consent, then put AFD tags on the articles. but just deleting stuff that isn't obvious spam/wandalism is really not advisable. i agree the articles in question should go, FWIW. P-Foster (talk) 15:54, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
Okay. But I'm confident the tags will get little to no discussion on most of the articles. How long should I wait for an AFD to get discussion before I go ahead with a deletion? ONE / TALK 15:58, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
10 years. P-Foster (talk) 16:05, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
Right. Shall I take that to mean I can make up a time period myself? ONE / TALK 16:25, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks...[edit]

Behe[edit]

I vaguely remember you saying that you live in Scotland. If so you might be interested that Michael Behe is giving an Intelligent Design public lecture in Glasgow on Tue Oct 23 (£6). A few folks from Glasgow SiP are planning on attending, listing politely, and then asking some awkward questions afterwards. CS Miller (talk) 18:10, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

That sounds fun but sadly you're mistaken; I'm in Birmingham :( ONE / TALK 18:13, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Ah well. It was a comment you made about Joe Ratzinger's visit; must have read it the wrong way. CS Miller (talk) 18:21, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Re:Alan O'Reilly[edit]

I'm afraid I've only just got here so I'm not a sysop - any chance you can restore the article? I should have the time to work on it tomorrow. Thanks, Baljit (talk) 21:03, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Since you're so in love with Alan O'Reilley[edit]

I don't care how you do it. You WILL scour this wiki with a fine tooth comb for every mention of his name and you WILL ensure that each mention of that name links to the article in question. Am I making myself clear? P-Foster (talk) 14:39, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

oh ya got me.[edit]

nice april fools wigo. Rationalize (talk) 12:08, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Are you in the UK?[edit]

I work in the south east, near a large regional business airport which has a biennial airshow. Oldusgitus (talk) 11:41, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Nah, I'm in the UK but in the west midlands. (That said, might be living in london soon :D) ONE / TALK 11:47, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

For saving my poorly worded WIGO. I have been sleeping but three hours/ day, my humour qi is drastically low. Thank you again, you're one of the good 1's. 01:18, 28 May 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ

Olympics[edit]

Slightly more seriously than the banter in the Saloon Bar, my missus and three of her pals are planning on going. However after they applied for a great many varied events, all they got tickets for was (and I quote my darling girlfriend directly here) "fucking volleyball. Fuck's sake". (They only applied for VB tickets to appease the one friend who loves VB). I'll let them know about your offer, although I think they've already began sounding out everyone they know in and around that London.

Jquery[edit]

This sorta does something like you were doing. Javascript is a very cool language, but Jquery makes it even more powerful with less writing. http://api.jquery.com. There is also something called Jquery-UI which make stuff looks spiffy and allows you to use add-on controls like a calendar date picker, number roller, etc. It is pretty much plug-n-play and allows you to build really cool stuff fast. Best of luck.

Awesome, thanks :D I'll have to play around with it this weekend ONE / TALK 16:05, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
No worries, your code is working fine after I closed the 2nd div. Just make sure your tags are closed cause it can cause hell. It may be good to find an IDE or a better document editor that points out when you do not close tags. Visual Studio 2010 is what I use at work, but notepad++ or PSPad are good alternatives.

<html> <head> <title>Test</title> <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> function togglePannelStatus(content) { var expand = (content.style.display == "none"); content.style.display = (expand ? "block" : "none"); var chevron = content.parentNode .firstChild.childNodes[1].childNodes[0]; chevron.src = chevron.src .split(expand ? "expand.gif" : "collapse.gif") .join(expand ? "collapse.gif" : "expand.gif"); } </script> </head> <body> <div class="squareboxgradientcaption" onclick="togglePannelStatus(this.nextSibling)">test </div><div class="squareboxcontent" style="display:none;">test</div> </body> </html> TheCheatI run on alcohol 16:08, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
