I didn't change anything you edited. All I did was add a warning label to the website. Aurelius (talk)23 February 2016 (EST)

This point[edit]

I saw you replied to my post, but you didn't answer the second question: "Shouldn't be better to address..." -Lankaster (talk) 19:38, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

Can you take a look at this urgently?[edit]

Not sure why this was taken down. Please read. (talk) 23:22, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

The chicken coop isn't the place to discuss your particular vendetta in your quest of petty witch-hunting of other people. Bring it up to talk pages first, maybe of the person you're accusing of being a sockpuppet perhaps? БaбyЛuigiOнФire(T|C) 23:24, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
That is correct. Bongolian (talk) 23:25, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
I've probably been here longer than you both, and I know a fake account when I see one... There has been a complete decline in RationalWiki; you're not even patrolling page creations anymore and are just allowing users to add dubious, false and potentially libellous content. As long as someone poses as a liberal or "progressive", you don't even look at what they are writing. (talk) 23:34, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
Take our advice rather than complaining to us. --It's-a me, 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 23:35, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
You claim to been here longer than any of us, yet you can't even settle page info dubiousness properly. БaбyЛuigiOнФire(T|C) 23:42, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
The point here is is not the correctness of the page. It is how you went about pointing it out. You have two options for this to start with: 1) Correct the page yourself. 2) Go to the talk page and discuss the problem. If someone disputes your corrections and you can't resolve it with them, and bringing in other Sysops to the dispute doesn't help: then and only then should you even consider taking it to the Chicken Coop. Bongolian (talk) 23:49, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
I have looked at this, and it is indeed dire. Not sure if moderation action is warranted for the user, but editorial action is probably due on the pages they modified. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 23:58, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
Probably my bad, but my red flag when up when I saw yet another accusation of a random user being a Michael Coombs / Kirkegrade / whatever alt and I'm still pretty burnt from all of that drama that has been commonplace. I'll parole the user, but seriously, all of this should have been brought up in their talk pages to begin with rather than straight up chicken coop material БaбyЛuigiOнФire(T|C) 00:03, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────OK, so are you able to fix this, @Ikanreed? Bongolian (talk) 00:05, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

I guess so. I'm a bit extreme about these things, one page has only one edit, and that edit includes and outright lie, so I'm tempted to burn the whole page. I don't tend to do half-measures on stuff that seems to be built on lies. But yeah, I can fix it "my way" ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 00:09, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
It's fine to delete it for now. Check the content of the deleted page if we can salvage anything. The content is, after all, still there, but just not for viewing eyes. Then rework the article from the ground up and we hopefully don't have an article that has the potential to poison a person's reputation. --It's-a me, 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 00:11, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
What about Robert Plomin's article? Ikanreed has also brought up stuff against it. I don't know exactly what to edit out though. БaбyЛuigiOнФire(T|C) 00:13, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
I took out the parts that seem to be inaccurate, after a bit of attempting to search. The guys' work is all the fuck over every neonazi hive on the internet, and I don't mind having a quiet "yeah this guy writes racisty stuff with academic pretense" kind of page, given that the actual citations don't seem far off. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 00:20, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
All right, thanks for cleaning out the dirt. And the BoN / Concerned, I apologize for the vandal binning. I would have paroled you myself if my idiotic twin didn't beat me to it. Recent trolls have shooken me up to have a shoot first, ask questions later attitude especially when I hear the phrases all too much from bad users. БaбyЛuigiOнФire(T|C) 00:23, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
@BabyLuigiOnFire Occupational hazard? Just relax. This is a wiki. Bad edits can be undone. Nerd (talk) 00:50, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Well I made a mistake. I felt like I should apologize. *shrug* БaбyЛuigiOнФire(T|C) 00:54, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
I leave you all alone for more than two hours and you go to defcon twelve over little shit like this? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 01:05, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
@BabyLuigiOnFire Sounds like civilized behavior to me. No worries, miss!
@GrammarCommie XO to Captain, I still have my key. Nerd (talk) 01:18, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
GrammarCommie: Pshaw, that's nothing when I sleep for a night and come back to see a freaking chicken coop case between Lankaster and James Earl Cash and it has been developed. --It's-a me, 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 01:23, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
BoN if you've been here so long then why don't you have an account? Or are you a sock?Doublethink (talk) 17:08, 28 November 2018 (UTC)Doublethink (talk) 17:12, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
He was right it's probably a sock. The acount only has one contrib and it was to delete that chicken coop request.Doublethink (talk) 17:12, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Creating David Wood (Christian apologist)[edit]

Hey mate, I created this page while trying to figure out how the {{wpr}} format has been implemented on RW. The page here currently redirects to a Wikipedia disambiguation page rather than the article on the actual subject, so I was trying to correct this. What do you suggest is the best solution for fixing this mislinking? NothingToSeeHere (talk) 01:08, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

The redirect was unnecessary, @NothingToSeeHere. I think what you actually wanted was a "wpa" not a "wpr". See the current page for David Wood for how I fixed it. Bongolian (talk) 01:33, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Chuck Schumer[edit]

HI Bongolian, I was wondering why you vaporised my Chuck Schumer article. I found it on the to do list and it was just a stub?Doublethink (talk) 23:04, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Unless you're planning to rapidly expand an article, @Doublethink, it's better to start working on it in the Draft space. I've copied the contents over into Draft space if you want to work on it there: Draft:Chuck Schumer. After you make it missional and expand it, feel free to move it back to Mainspace. Bongolian (talk) 00:39, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
Ok I will do thatDoublethink (talk) 01:07, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the bone broth research[edit]

Thank you for the time and effort. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 19:36, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

Internal links[edit]

Thank you for helping out with universal healthcare. But please be advised that having too many internal links concentrated in a section or paragraph can be distracting and thus counterproductive. Nerd (talk) 19:18, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

OK, thanks, @Nerd. Bongolian (talk) 19:33, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Welcome message[edit]

Hey, thanks for the welcome message from a few months back. I don't visit here often and I just returned today. I've left many welcome messages on Wikipedia in my time (unfortunately many with a side order of {{test1}}). Auntie Fra (talk) 00:23, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
