Because of your edits to and time on the wiki, Autopatrolled has been added to your user rights. This lets you bypass most of the abuse filters, bypass the CAPTCHA, and edit more frequently. If you have questions, bleat ask away.

We hope you enjoy your newfound POWER — and these external tools:

  • Google Scholar Button (Chrome, Firefox) searches your highlighted text in Google Scholar. Easily check academic citations!
  • and can save permanent copies of webpages. Never lose a crank website or racist Tweet ever again!

Please use the preview button[edit]

You’re making loads of consecutive edits to the same page, which really clogs up recent changes. Wikipedia has a help page on the subject if you’re unfamiliar with what it does. Christopher (talk) 18:12, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

ok --CharlotteTakveis (talk) 18:17, 19 March 2021 (UTC)


Because of your edits to and time on the wiki, wizard Sysop has been added to your user rights. Feel free to let your newfound POWER course through your veins. Once the high wears off, see RationalWiki:Sysop guide for more information. If you have questions, bleat ask away. Christopher (talk) 09:30, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

Thanks. --CharlotteTakveis (talk) 09:33, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

Good work![edit]

Thank you for your excellent work in articles on TERFs/transphobes. Splainer (talk) 02:41, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

Article suggestion[edit]

Hi, me and another user were talking about the article Sheila Jeffreys and we think it can be improved. Problem is, I don't know anything about the theme. Since you're the one working on the theme right now, can you please take at look when you have time? Thanks a lot. GeeJayK (talk) 05:21, 3 June 2021 (UTC)

Oh, wait, you've already started working on it. GeeJayK (talk) 05:23, 3 June 2021 (UTC)
I only made some small edits to that article, but I might take a further look on it later. --CharlotteTakveis (talk) 21:32, 3 June 2021 (UTC)

In case you hadn’t seen[edit]

I deleted a page you created yesterday. There’s no chance of it staying in mainspace, but you could resurrect it and move it back to your userspace if you really wanted it to exist somewhere on the site. Christopher (talk) 07:19, 10 June 2021 (UTC)

Afd notice[edit]

I’ve nominated an article of yours for deletion. I’m sure you saw as you were editing it a few minutes ago, but someone will still get annoyed if I don’t leave this message. Christopher (talk) 15:53, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

The articles for deletion vote is not going your way on the Kishwer Falkner article. You put a lot of work into it. I don't know why others are not adopting a more cooperative spirit about this matter. NorthWasNotTaken (talk) 22:41, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
Charlotte is the third or fourth trans rights-supporting woman contributor who's had her work methodically dismantled. Make of that what you will. Mermaid (talk) 12:24, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

The more socks one sees, the more likely one believes that here be a troll who needs to have far more AfDs raised. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 12:32, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
The ideal outcome here would be for RW to take a hard look at itself and correct course. But, given the previous incidents, that outcome is unlikely. Charlotte deserves to know exactly where things stand so that she can assess how to proceed. Mermaid (talk) 13:37, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

Common words on TERF glossary and recent AfDs[edit]

Hey, just wanted to let you know; could you please refrain from inserting common dictionary words under the TERF glossary? I know that TERFs like abusing certain innocuous words to create double meanings for them but it kinda seems insane, especially when you don't bother referencing these claims or further elaborating on them. If you really must have them, please put them outside of the Terms header and instead under a different header like say "Double meanings", to make it clear that these words are more often than not not TERF slang.

To be clear, this was prompted by this and this edit.

As a small aside, since we had two recent AfDs on articles you created, one on a twitter account and another on a politican; please keep in mind that we have higher standards for articles on living people (RW:BLP). This is not a warning of any sorts yet, just a reminder that if you are writing about still living people, it is often more useful to be a bit cautionary in what you say about them specifically, that you properly reference major claims with sources that back up those claims and that in general it is not useful to go on extensive spiels about a persons beliefs being wrong, because it makes the voice of RW sound a lot more agressive than they actually are. If you need a good reference for this when a person is known for multiple crank beliefs or holds other beliefs besides crank ones in general, check Ben Shapiro#Transphobia. You'll find that we prefer potholing and references over extensive essays.

Of course if you really want to write essays, we have Essayspace for that and I would encourage you to write Essays there if you prefer that.

That's all, keep on editing! Techpriest (talk) 21:04, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

A third afd[edit]

Afd grand finale: Your magnum opus[edit]

Red x.svg Someone wanted to let you know that they think Women's Human Rights Campaign, a page you created, should be deleted, arguing that "Has a grand total of 17,000 followers worldwide and Twitter followers numbering in the lower quadruple digits; obscure groups as scummy as these degenerates don't even deserve the free clout from an RW article. Also, 98% of this was made by an insufferable, overly-passionate, holier-than-thou editor who has a very shitty track record when it comes to editing."
Please discuss this assassination attempt on this article's entry on Women's Human Rights Campaign's Articles for deletion page if you wish to defend your creation.

Feel free to defend it, though it probably won't matter at this point, because as of now, nobody's voted to keep it yet. --Goatspeed. All holidays matter🎄CircularREmail2.gifasoning🎄Prototype lab 22:10, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

Discussion at RationalWiki_talk:All_things_in_moderation[edit]

Hi Charlotte, as per what was discussed at RW:ATIM I've decided to remove your autopatrolled and sysop rights, as I feel that your contributions need closer scrutiny in the future. I've also noticed that you deleted your userpage citing that you do not wish to be associated with RationalWiki anymore which I take to mean that you're retired and are not particularly concerned about that. However I could be wrong. If so then feel free to ask for those rights back at RW:ATIM, I'd suggest creating a new thread. Thanks. Harry Potter (talk) 00:32, 19 June 2021 (UTC)

Sorry I was wrong to do what I did, I panicked as I was worried that you'd manage to get bad articles past new page patrol, and completely forgot the way things are done around here. Please feel free to stay as you're still welcome here. :) Thanks. Harry Potter (talk) 00:42, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
