How do you make the cards? Harmonic educated Hoover! 16:43, 30 January 2009 (EST)

Go here. Please make sure to add damage values- these are designed to be parody, but actually be able to be played with. --"ConservapediaUndergroundDiode'This isn't wookiepedia, fanboy.' 16:45, 30 January 2009 (EST)
I can has one? Harmonic educated Hoover! 17:08, 30 January 2009 (EST)
Sure. Wait till I generate the rest of the ones I already know that I'm going to do- I'm next. --"ConservapediaUndergroundDiode'This isn't wookiepedia, fanboy.' 17:10, 30 January 2009 (EST)
Don't forget to make cards for Goat and Long-eared Jerboa. Yours trulyDear Sir 09:33, 31 January 2009 (EST)
How about "Long-eared Jerboa: only creature able to defeat Goat"? Oh, and CUR, please don't use the self-flattering card you made; use the funnier one Weaseloid did. Harmonic educated Hoover! 16:31, 31 January 2009 (EST)
Too late, thy Ghostly Vacuum sweeper. But the main reason I used mine was because A. That's the one that can actually be played with. B. I'm attempting to reform. C. I still have self-depredatory humor in there- did you see the flavor text? --"ConservapediaUndergroundDiode'This isn't wookiepedia, fanboy.' 16:34, 31 January 2009 (EST)
"Self depredatory humour." You mean that your humour hunts down from itself? Harmonic educated Hoover! 16:43, 31 January 2009 (EST)

I'm trying to make one for myself, but I can't get local hard drive or imageshack image links to work, and the initial version of the image stretches too much. And why are the numbers so big? The Magic cards I collected and played with as a child had attack/defense values of less than ten! KlapauciusEsteemed Constructor 16:45, 31 January 2009 (EST)

(unident) EGAD! Speling! As for the numbers being big, it's a different game. By the way, you need a squarish image. --"ConservapediaUndergroundDiode'This isn't wookiepedia, fanboy.' 16:47, 31 January 2009 (EST)

RationalWiki Card flavor text[edit]

We don't actually plan any attacks on Conservapedia... -Diadochus 21:03, 31 January 2009 (EST)

Yes, we do. Sort of. --"ConservapediaUndergroundDiode'This isn't wookiepedia, fanboy.' 10:22, 1 February 2009 (EST)
Oh noes, now TK is going to quote you (you're sysop, that must mean your word is RW policy!) in his attempt to prove RW is an Internet Terrorist staging site. Jokes aside, Diadochus is right, we do not condone vandalism. That is not our mission. -- Nx talk 10:29, 1 February 2009 (EST)
We don't condone vandalism- but we do condone page bump operations, adding facts to articles, etc. which, on CP, are 'attacks.' --"ConservapediaUndergroundDiode'This isn't wookiepedia, fanboy.' 10:32, 1 February 2009 (EST)
Well yes, but maybe "war" is a bit too harsh word to use, and a few days ago TK tried to "prove" RW was a vandal staging site on Tony Sidaway's blog, using this very argument (an RW sysop made the Hitlist parody, therefore RW condones vandalism, terrorism, and kitten-huffing). How about changing the wording to "war against anti-science"? -- Nx talk 10:38, 1 February 2009 (EST)
I can't modify it. I've tried. --"ConservapediaUndergroundDiode'This isn't wookiepedia, fanboy.' 10:39, 1 February 2009 (EST)
You can remake it. I did that to fix the spelling mistake on Darwin's signature. -- Nx talk 10:44, 1 February 2009 (EST)

From what I've gathered, most people on RW who've done the vandal thing were operating alone and came here to brag. Take Bugler. He was one of us but never sought our advice.-Diadochus 11:06, 1 February 2009 (EST)

Making a template[edit]

On a sidenote, I was thinking about making a template for this (instead of using that website to generate the images), but since I'm unfamiliar with Magic, I don't know how these cards are made and what the individual parts mean. But if you want to help... -- Nx talk 10:44, 1 February 2009 (EST)

Go to this site: here. Make one, and then you should be able to figure something out. --"ConservapediaUndergroundDiode'This isn't wookiepedia, fanboy.' 10:46, 1 February 2009 (EST)
Problem is I'd need the separate pieces of artwork, and I can't find them, but then again those are probably copyrighted and all, so I don't know if it's a good idea to upload them here. -- Nx talk 11:30, 1 February 2009 (EST)
I think it would be relatively straightforward to make a template that looks a bit like Magic cards (i.e. sort-of recognisable) without needing to look exactly like them or necessarily use the same symbols. WēāŝēīōīďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 11:42, 1 February 2009 (EST)
How about this? Looks best on Firefox and webkit-based browsers, and browsers that support the CSS3 border-radius property. -- Nx talk 12:40, 1 February 2009 (EST)

Designing our own cards[edit]

Is it okay if we design our own cards? I did one for me alredy, it's on my userpageThe EmperorKneel before Zod! 20:49, 1 February 2009 (EST)

the title[edit]

So we have two of these now. It's like that famous saying. "Find a need and fill it - TWICE!" Mei 18:30, 17 March 2009 (EDT)
