I am sure you can do a better job in your User Page.
Could you try soon? I will be patrolling it.

...Very funny. --transResident Transfanform! 15:22, 6 August 2007 (CDT)

Irrational number[edit]

I don't understand the "usually a decimal" bit in this edit. A number is itself, and irrational, regardless of its representation. Irrational numbers are non-repeating and non-terminating in any rational base. --jtltalk 19:32, 27 June 2007 (CDT)

TK unblocked me :)[edit]

Whoo Hoo!

So can you please tell them that The Daily Show profiled their site so they can put it on the front page? There are probably some other things you could tell them, but I wouldn't bother, if I were you. humanbe in 12:58, 28 June 2007 (CDT)

More IPs![edit]

Now i gotta make more..mmoreeee.moreeeeeeeee..Muwhahahah..--PalMD-Goatspeed! 19:58, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

Funny. Very funny.--AutoFire 20:00, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

that Christian "Science" book evolution thing[edit]

Apparently, we both decided to get it ready for prime time at the same time. But your version worked, and mine shat. Thanks!

Please help out by adding "====" headers to the middle section? That's all that's missing now. I appreciate your help!!!!!! humanbe in 22:15, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

this was funny while it lasted, although it was gone before I found it... nice pwnage, dude/ette. humanbe in 22:23, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
It's dude, and thanx, man. --AutoFire 22:24, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
You don't have to thank me, dude, I was in the middle of completely destroying the format of that file, and went to revert, and your version was stable and solid. So, thank you! humanbe in 22:26, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
PS, B:3/4 and B:5/6 still need to be separated :( I tried, but made a drunken mess. I really appreciate your efforts on this. humanbe in 22:34, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

Oh, GL...[edit]

Why do you torment me so?! --AutoFire 22:52, 3 August 2007 (CDT) </sarcasm>

I feel so evil... GHammer and Sickle text gold.svgdlessLiberal 22:56, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
It was so difficult to lock your userpage. It took me three tries. GHammer and Sickle text gold.svgdlessLiberal 23:09, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
So I saw. --AutoFire 23:10, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
I've gotten my fix of pwning/blocking fun. I think my userpage is still Bohdan-pwned though. You should go double-pwn it, so he has to repwn. Or something. GHammer and Sickle text gold.svgdlessLiberal 23:20, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

Custom sig[edit]

How do I make it work? --AutoFire 22:27, 4 August 2007 (CDT)

There are many options. What do you want to do? Basically, you can go to your "preferences" and create a sig in the place where it says. You can also go hard core and link to self-created template... Ask and I will try to help. humanbe in 22:40, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
"Basically, you can go to your 'preferences' and create a sig in the place where it says."

Where is that? --AutoFire 22:42, 4 August 2007 (CDT)

In the top bar, where it would say "log in", one of the choices is "my preferences". That screen gives you many options of how to interact with the wiki. One of them is your sig. I would advise you experiment in a "sandbox", or on your own user/talk page, until you get it right. And again, feel free to ask me, or any others whose sigs you admire. If you want to know how someone did something, I'm sure they will show you how. humanbe in 23:04, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
You mean under "Nickname"? Tried it; code didn't work. --AutoFire 23:14, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
Here's what I have: {{SUBST:User:Human/sig}}, then, in a file called /sig under my user space, I created the code. I hope that helps. We should really have an article on how to create shiny shiny sig files! If you got to my sig file, you'll see what I did. User:Human/sig a quick link for ya. humanbe in 23:25, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
Not working; Help! --{{SUBST:User:AutoFire/sig}} 23:43, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
Sorry. make this link: User:AutoFire/sig. It will be red. Go to it and edit it. make it show what you want your sig to be. Then, enter the "subst" thing in your nickname box. humanbe in 23:58, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
One more thing (sorry). Below the sig box is a thing that says "raw signatures" or some such crap. check off the box there. That is important. humanbe in 00:00, 5 August 2007 (CDT)
Got it! Thanx! --Resident Transfanmeh 00:04, 5 August 2007 (CDT)
Awesome, yeah! Sorry it took me so long! We should write this up somewhere before we both forget how to do it! Glad you got where you were going, in the end, though! 00:08, 5 August 2007 (CDT)

Join Me..[edit]

..on the team of RW resident vandals. Say, did I ever meet you on CP? Are you currently blocked? Bohdan

I had been banned by TK for a brief period of time, but the matter was resolved. I currently edit cp under the same username as here, although the "f" isn't capitalized. --transResident Transfanform! 00:52, 5 August 2007 (CDT)
Alright. So, are you in the vandal club? Bohdan
Count me in. --transResident Transfanform! 00:54, 5 August 2007 (CDT)
We need our own special vandal namespace that only us vandals can see. Bohdan
Indeed, like our own secret club. Or, if you like, a cabal. --transResident Transfanform! 00:58, 5 August 2007 (CDT)
It's called "pmail". You write each other in secretz, and unleashz your secretz planz on us when we least exxpect itz! humanbe in 01:00, 5 August 2007 (CDT)

In regards to your demotion to Sysop[edit]

There is very little that this site uses sysops for since they aren't really rule enforcers or makers and we don't really block anyone. What we do need sysops for is the few added buttons that let them clean up the site, like the delete button for getting rid of redirects. Also it signals you as a user that I (particularly me cause I like to channel Ed poor sometimes, kidding) and others can ask to do jobs most users don't really like to do. Check out RationalWiki:Project Whitewash to get an idea. If you are still interested we need some more active sysops that really are willing to do the grunt work. I wouldn't have a problem demoting you at all. tmtoulouse irritate 12:09, 6 August 2007 (CDT)

I am willing to do what would be asked of me. I am ready for demotion. --transResident Transfanform! 13:38, 6 August 2007 (CDT)
Okay, the main things we need are still main namespace clean-up and we need to mark articles as high priority or needing RWification. Read through project whitewash and its corresponding support pages and see what you can do. tmtoulouse irritate 13:43, 6 August 2007 (CDT)
Condolences on your demotion seem to be in Order, so here they are. --Ë. 17:48, 19 August 2007 (CDT)
Yes, you have my condolences also. And you can now share some of my calluses! humanbe in 23:47, 19 August 2007 (CDT)


What is your ID there? Dagomar 02:18, 8 August 2007 (CDT)

personal attacks[edit]

No personal attacks? Have you read your Andrew Schlafly article? "Doesn't matter. We try to avoid stooping to CP's level on this site." When is the last time you were insulted, mocked, and cursed at over at CP? If those are the rules, RW isn't doing a good job of enforcing them. Bohdan 12:41, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

Um, every time TK emailed me he was rude, condescending, and profane. As he was on this site. Schlafly is a freak of nature. His views represent maybe 3% (!!!) of the population, and yet he thinks he speaks for 97% of them. humanbe in 03:25, 31 August 2007 (CDT)

Friendly message from Project whitewash[edit]

You are receiving this message because you signed up to participate at project whitewash. If you no longer want to here from me about this then just remove your name or let me know. I want to create a push to get as thorough coverage as possible for two new categories the first is Category:Best of RationalWiki and the second is Category:Almost the best of RationalWiki. Both categories should tell you what belongs in each. If you could take some time to go through the article space and the essay space and label these with the corresponding categories it would be very helpful. Godspeed. tmtoulouse irritate 13:39, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

MediaWiki programming[edit]

Ha! I do not think MediaWiki is really designed to support complex programming, probably pushing the limits of its abilities with our bots. Maybe I will port it over to a local copy and work out the kinks since debugging would just spam RW. tmtoulouse irritate 00:04, 13 August 2007 (CDT)

link change[edit]

re: this, why did you change it to the IP we are at right now? We will have the domain name back under this very shortly... I undid it. humanbe in 13:54, 12 September 2007 (MDT)

All those wp links don't improve the articles... maybe better to just unlink anything that wouldn't make a good RW article? I really have a peeve about too many "in line" links to wp. Add 'em to "external links" if they are needed... humanbe in 00:38, 19 September 2007 (EDT)
