Oh. First, I thought the October one was sandboxed - I never had the intention of posting it since it was basically just a copy and paste.

As for the one today, I heavily revised that article. Sure, it was based on the Wikipedia one, but language was changed in most paragraphs, whole sections were removed, and so on. As it was substantially different from the Wikipedia article, would there really be copyright issues? — Unsigned, by: Hochichi667 / talk / contribs

Removing WIGOs[edit]

It's not a filter, but hopefully this change to the edit notice should help. β€”Kazitor, pending 22:02, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

That should do the trick. Christopher (talk) 22:30, 7 January 2018 (UTC)


Do you think we should reconsider our policy on Sysops? Personally, I think people get promoted way to easily, so much so that it degrades the prestige of the status. On top of that, such speedy promotion overlooks possible trolls and vandals. What do you think? Nerd (talk) 02:43, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

There’s not meant to be any prestige. Trolls can’t cause any damage even as sysops because we have so many. Christopher (talk) 17:41, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
Fair enough. But that could pave the way for ugly conflicts between Sysops. Nerd (talk) 00:41, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
@Nerd, ??????? Christopher (talk) 10:01, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
Ah, so you haven't been here long. I have seen more than my fair share of Sysop using their tools against each other, not just the ultimately benign blocks but de-mopping. This has led to some rather unpleasant drama at the Chicken Coop. Yes, really! That actually happened. Nerd (talk) 14:43, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

Really brief tenure as mod[edit]

Congratulations to the new cabal (there is no cabal). Cheers, Cosmikdebris (talk) 04:55, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
Congratulations, once again other people beat me to it :P β€”Kazitor, pending 06:15, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
Have fun. Try not to be too serious...and congrats!Ariel31459 (talk) 14:55, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Something to keep an eye on.[edit]

I have been trying to keep the Jordan Peterson article from getting too hysterical. One of your demotions (johnny fog) has torched any hope of doing that myself. I am not opposed to criticism of Peterson and would like to help with the page, but this sysops has created a disneyworld of ridicule, much of it unjustifiable. I am going to leave it alone, but I think some of the horseshit in the revision needs to be flushed.Ariel31459 (talk) 05:37, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

I know very little about Peterson, but the article as it stands is a poorly written joke. Christopher (talk) 16:08, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi Georgie[edit]

What a nice boat. Do you want it back?--Pennywise (talk) 17:16, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

Basic income (James Earl Cash's revenge)[edit]

Hi, recently I added few criticisms in the section "Advantages" of Basic income. Soon after, James Earl Cash reverted my edits. It seems to me that my edits are founded and I think that James Earl Cash reverted them just to spite me, since recently we had a discussion.

Please take a look. I added my criticisms in the talk page of Basic income. --McLaghing (talk) 08:46, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

That guy is like a Trumpist: thinks he knows a lot, knows very little, can't or won't learn. We need more sysops like him/them.Ariel31459 (talk) 14:24, 22 February 2018 (UTC).
Responded on the basic income talk page.
@Ariel31459, who is the guy you’re talking about? James Earl Cash, McLaghong, or me? Christopher (talk) 18:10, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
@Christopher I am sorry, and embarrassed that you have to ask. Not you, not Mclaghing. Sorry, maybe I should not have butted in.Ariel31459 (talk) 14:04, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
@McLaghing See the Basic Income talk page. Went ahead and elaborated my conclusions. James Earl Cash (talk) 19:24, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
