Hi, I don't know if you know, but with the wiki code, you italicize something by putting two single apostrophes around it, for example, check the code on this. When you made this edit, you broke the index..... However, I won't abuse my sysop powers and block this time.....maybe I'm just kidding SirChuckBCall the FBI 04:58, 8 July 2008 (EDT)

Sorry about that, I must have stopped paying attention for a minute. Armondikov 05:00, 8 July 2008 (EDT)
No big deal. It happens... you should see some of my early edits, my Wiki coding sucked to hell :) SirChuckBCall the FBI 06:17, 8 July 2008 (EDT)

Re: Evolution of Heroes[edit]

At first when I read that I thought "well clearly he's wrong, since I've never met anybody (in real life) who actually believed in 7-day creationism". So I looked it up and realized why: I don't hang out with high school dropouts. JazzMan 12:59, 2 October 2008 (EDT)

Yeah... those stats are fairly well known but it's good that they provide the wording since that can alter the results; results for "Evolution was simply the means God chose to create life on this planet" I would certainly combine with "Evolution is not just a theory, it is a fact" as in practice they say the same thing! Though it's not just "high school dropouts" that you're talking about as it's still remarkable how high belief in near-literal creationism is even up to college level! Scary stuff, truely.

Why thank you for welcoming me[edit]

Hey Armondikov... now that I have an account, what do I do now? I'm from Uncyclopedia, so I'm interested in humor. Do you guys know about the crazies at Conservapedia? Cajek 12:39, 19 October 2008 (EDT)

Know about the crazies at Conservapedia!? Check Conservapedia:What is going on at CP?, the article Conservapedia and the whole name space dedicated to it. If you're mostly interested in humour, try the fun namespace as that has very few standards. ArmondikoVd hominem 12:42, 19 October 2008 (EDT)

RE: Your intercom message[edit]

An interesting idea, but Good ol' Ken has a huge online history of his continued idiocy. So if he's not legit, he's so far into his character that even my hero Freud couldn't bring him out of it. SirChuckBCall the FBI 13:11, 22 October 2008 (EDT)

Hmm... good point. He'd be so far into it that it would be taking method acting to extremes. ArmondikoVd hominem 13:13, 22 October 2008 (EDT)

Well, he ALLEGEDLY has two daughters. If he can't even prove where he was born, how can we trust that those two kids are his, and that he doesn't have a son from somewhere like Russia?

Indeed, though one or two of the edits weren't completely off. We'll see in a month or so. If it happens again, we'll see him in two. Simple, effective and applicable to everybody as far as I'm concerned. It's there as policy, people just need to start using it rather than just going with the gut. It's tempting to say that's okay to just wing it, but it can lead to accidents and HCM so an actual policy and procedure that works regardless of what someone is feeling is a good thing.

Holocaust Denial[edit]

What are you doing? TheoryOfPractice (talk) 18:58, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

It's on the talk page. The references weren't working and I was wondering what the hell was wrong. Scarlet A.pngsshole 18:59, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
It's a dpl bug. You can't fix it. Nx (talk) 19:00, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
Ah. Scarlet A.pngsshole 19:01, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
I can't reproduce the bug on the dpl home wiki running dpl 1.8.7. I'll try to upgrade, but because of the major code rewrite in 1.8.0 it's not that easy. Nx (talk) 19:02, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
I was wrong, it was the Cite extension, which apparently isn't part of MediaWiki, and we never upgraded from our ancient version. Nx (talk) 19:21, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Open Mind[edit]

After I made the Conservapedia:Open Mind article and you made the Open mind one I kept my eye on both of them and I've just noticed you added my Essay:Quantifying Openmindedness to the See Also section of your open mind article. Genuine thanks, as it's always nice to know people read your stuff. SJ Debaser 18:41, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

It's what the see also sections are for. The open mindedness stuff I think is where RW can and should excel - Wikipedia doesn't (and shouldn't and couldn't) say anything at length on the subject but we can. Scarlet A.pngsshole 18:54, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
Indeed, an open mind is a main ingredient of a rational mind. I just like laughing at Andy Pandy with my essays (as well as debunking and refuting the anti-science and anti-crank movement, etc, etc). By the by, your sigtalk link just read "I'll voice your calculator" which I thought was quite pleasantly amusing. SJ Debaser 18:57, 12 August 2009 (UTC)


An interesting set of page edits you're doing at the moment. Got something on your mind? CrundyTalk nerdy to me 10:15, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

My rollback on Conservapedia:Banwatch[edit]

Hey there. Was the revert I did okay, or was there something odd about it? It's the first revert I've done, so wasn't entirely sure how it worked out? --Concernedresident 16:26, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

It was fine actually - although "rollback" doesn't let you leave a comment unfortunately, so, unless it's obvious vandalism it's often best to click "undo" instead to leave a rationale. However, I didn't notice that the page had been "archived" and shouldn't have been changed or edited, so you were right actually and I rolled back my own rollback... if that makes sense. Scarlet A.pngsshole 16:30, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
I was wondering why there was no option to leave a comment? I'll save rollbacks for vandalism - thanks for the tip. Is it worth me protecting that page if it's not intended to be edited? --Concernedresident 16:35, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
Nah, protection doesn't tend to happen with RW. Mostly it's pointless as you can only protect it from non-sysops and everyone is a sysop. And if someone with an interest in logging Conservapedia bans wants to keep an eye on it and start it up, they can. Rollback is good for vandalism because you can do it so quickly without having to load up a new page and leaving the comment, but undo is the method of choice. I it that also lets you do an edit to the previous version while you're at it if it's a worthy change, but messed up somehow. Scarlet A.pngsshole 16:42, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
I think it might actually be better to move the banwatch link in Template:Conservapedia to a different location (e.g. under an archive header or something), since a link in the Guide & Notes section implies that the page is semi active. -- 16:44, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
Cheers. Appreciate the advice. --Concernedresident 16:46, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Question Time[edit]

If you missed the first couple of minutes, it's here on iPlayer. I watched the whole thing there earlier today as I'm too poor to own a telly. SJ Debaser 16:18, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

It was only a few minutes. I might go through it again as I missed some of the mumbling, but considering that it was 95% devoted to troll-baiting Nick Griffin it's probably not worth a second run through. Scarlet A.pngsshole 16:21, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
...too poor to own a telly... Surely you can save up the funds at least for a small one? Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 16:36, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
TV license, nearly £140 a year. You don't need one for iPlayer, though. At least, so long as you're not using it to view things that are going out "live" (not live in the usual sense, but stuff that's on TV now, rather than just using it for repeats or catch-up). Scarlet A.pngsshole 16:42, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Oh. Over here you just buy the television. On the other hand good programs are few and far between except on PBS, and half of those are imported from the BBC. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 16:47, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Precisely. Though the license fee is really just a £10-a-month subscription to the BBC - it's cheaper than Sky and arguably much better value for money. I'm sure we should have an article on it, it's an interesting subject when you get into the odd reasons that people protest against it, the actual position it holds in law and the adverts about it that can only really be classed as mis-informative propaganda. Scarlet A.pngsshole 16:50, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Cable television here can run upwards of $100 per month. I hear it is less expensive over in the U.K., or at least I saw a flyer to that effect when I was there. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 16:57, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Well, I think for a full package with Sky, which would include phone and broadband (a lot of companies do this combined) plus installation costs, wouldn't be far off that figure, but I'm pretty sure I've never seen it go above the equivalent of $100. Scarlet A.pngsshole 17:04, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Well, I own one of those small TV/DVD combo player things but I leave it in my family home as I can watch DVDs off my laptop. After moving in to my uni house (a month ago today in fact) we shortly got letters telling us about TV licensing and how paying £142 pa would keep us out of jail. I didn't bother, as a) I'd left my telly at home, b) there is absolutely sod all on telly nowadays anyway and I only watch DVDs. If there's something that I want to watch I can just see it on iPlayer, i.e. this weeks Question Time. SJ Debaser 18:50, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
You could get one of those digital USB dongles which allows you to watch TV on your laptop. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 19:01, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

My 'good point'[edit]

I feel compelled to use an internet meme here to express myself - LOL. Methinks that the mob will have their fill again tonight. If you ask me peoples reactions to very innocuous things is what makes RW interesting. Even this post will somehow be construed as trolling. Even me messaging you will be considered as the great crime Toast accuses me of (Of seducing people to get on my 'side' - whatever that means on the internet. The drama of it all!). It really is remarkable what a reactionary mindset can do when given fake internet authority. Ah well. Should be interesting. MarcusCicero 21:59, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

The fact that your last edit was 666 characters makes me highly suspicious... Scarlet A.pngsshole 22:02, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

I always thought you were alright. RaoulDuke 23:59, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Just dicking around having an abrasive "Dr Cox" moment, really. Sorry for any offense. Come to actually think of it, I do have a tendency to agree with you - Operation Move On, for instance. Scarlet A.pngsshole 00:04, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
Sorry myself--a little sensitive today I guess. RaoulDuke 00:05, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
Don't be. My fault. Anyway, time to check the fallout... Scarlet A.pngsshole 10:48, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

My "beliefs"[edit]

Let's see - I'm the one who actually examined the scientific literature about the issue, I was the one who bothered himself with reading encyclopedias and articles, it was me who sent letters to expert, and as it has turned out, every single source has stated exactly the opposite of what your beloved article says.

You, on the other hand, have presented really marvelous "evidence": "I could ask ten people around me and they would answer differently" and "We should not question what Scott Gilbert says, no other source is needed".

The question is: Who is actually "believing" and who is trying to find out the truth? --Earthland (talk) 12:33, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
