You should put that into funspace too. It looks pretty good. Pumpkin pixel glow.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoTry our pumpkin spice lasagna! 01:41, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

Alrighty then. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 01:42, 31 October 2020 (UTC)
Update: I have just copied it over from my sandbox to the funspace. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 03:52, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip![edit]

Forgot how dangerous it can be out there. Semipenultimate (talk) 21:31, 7 November 2020 (UTC)

Username blocks[edit]

Curb your enthusiasm, please. There's nothing in RW policies that would prohibit CaptainCrackCocaine as a username. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 23:33, 7 November 2020 (UTC)

@Helena Bonham Carter Oh. Sorry. Noted. (Note: Next time I make a mistake like that, feel free to trout me. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 04:23, 8 November 2020 (UTC)


I read about the guy you think I am. I don't really see the similarity. Monke (talk) 17:31, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

@. .The similarity I thought I saw was the tendency to mention on the Saloon Bar YT videos from relatively obscure channels with subs numbering in the lower quadruple digits at most, and make them out to be 100 times better than they actually are. But in case you aren't him, I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. As they say, innocent until proven guilty. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 17:36, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

I don't think exaggerating the quality of obscure videos is something that dude has a monopoly on. Speaking of that dude, his username sounds like the Latin name of an extinct species of crocodilian

Also, thanks for the doubt-benefiting. I appreciate not being burnt at the stake Monke (talk) 19:44, 11 November 2020 (UTC)
Hmm, "burnt at the stake". Reminds me of how he used to go on about how we were "blocking everyone who mentioned him" and "destroying this wiki like Maple Street" in one of the many socks he made... --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 19:48, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

Your sig[edit]

The formatting on your signature seems to be failing. Bongolian (talk) 20:04, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

@Bongolian Yeah, I've noticed that. As stated here, methinks it's some kind of bug in my recently-created {{FontedText}} template. I'd like some help in fixing that template. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 20:06, 11 November 2020 (UTC)
Update: I've fixed both the template and my signature. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 22:52, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

sysopping two dots[edit]

Arguably premature for an editor that has needed consistent coaching up until a few days ago was still doing weird stuff like editing another user's sandbox. Also I don't know that I'd even given them autopatrolled status--Hastur! (talk) 15:22, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

Hell they've been here for like two months and the overwhelming bulk of their edits is to the saloon bar--Hastur! (talk) 15:25, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
@Hastur Well to be fair they are waging a war on naked links and it's kind of our policy to make everyone who isn't an obvious bad faith editor a sysop- though yes, admittedly they could wage their War On Naked Links themselves, instead of compiling "hit lists" for others to RWify. And aw man, you forgot the {{trout}} template! Smh I am disappointed in you. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 17:22, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

This shit[edit]

Not your job. Knock it off. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 21:13, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

... Kay?... --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 21:14, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
Not gonna lie, your style of "moderation" is more irritating than anything else, CircularReasoning.--Hastur! (talk) 06:01, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
@Hastur Sorry, I guess I went a bit too far with those collapses on the saloon bar. I'll try to only do it if someone's really annoying and produces a troll/Drinkable thread. Was it the collapses you didn't like, Hastur? I just gave that reply earlier in this thread because I think @Helena Bonham Carter's comment seemed a bit harsh for calling out a good-faith overcollapsing. She could've just friendly-blocked me or trouted me. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 06:20, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
I didn't even post in that collapsed thread. Do I have that kind of reputation? CoryUsar (talk) 19:54, 25 November 2020 (UTC)

Responding to the "Wet trout"[edit]

Hello! In response to the wet trout left on my talk page, I genuinely have no clue why I protected the page. Either way, it's pretty silly, so I'll remove the protection on the James Buchanan draft if it's not already done :)

@ThyFluffyDolphin On talk pages, please sign your comments using four tildes (~~~~) or by clicking on the sign button: SigButt.png on the toolbar above the edit panel. You can also indent successive talk page comments using one more colon (:) for each line. Thank you. Friendly reminder: next time, start a new thread at the bottom of talk pages. You can also click the "Add Section" tab at the top of the page to do this automatically. And also, I already unprotted it. --Goatspeed.

Are you Indian[edit]

@Iwillprobablygetbanned हां, मै भारतिय है। --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 15:36, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
Which state? btw I‘m from Tamil Nadu. Iwillprobablygetbanned (Reply) 20:15, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
since you both appear to be from that part of the world, i wonder if i may ask what your opinions of our India article might be? AMassiveGay (talk) 20:57, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
@Iwillprobablygetbanned @AMassiveGay Ah, just to clarify, I'm not from India; my parents are. I am from 'Murica, and am an Indian-American. Sorry for the confusion. (Though I do like being close to my cultural roots- minus the religious and "Ayurveda" BS, of course.) --Goatspeed.

I am Swiss-Indian, my parents are from Tamil Nadu, but I live in Switzerland. Iwillprobablygetbanned (Reply) 09:11, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
@Iwillprobablygetbanned Cool. Maybe if I improve my Hindi, I could translate some articles into it. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 22:07, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

Wow. Looks like atheist/agnostic Indians are a lot more common than it seems; even here in the very-liberal Pacific Northwest, many Indian-Americans either are or pretend to be devout adherents of at least some religion or another. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 20:05, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
Always good to see people wanting to translate articles. Hindi would be a great language for the project! Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 20:07, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
@DuceMoosolini Agreed. I hear that in India, politicians and Hindutvas are getting butthurt over a drawing of "Sexy Kali"- to the point that some are even trying to sue in the Indian Supreme Court for "blasphemy" (which is a crime in "secular" India btw)- an atheist activist who lives in Canada. Muslims in India are slaughtered by lynch mobs for eating beef. And as I trust a lot of us know, that one Indian skeptic had to flee the country for "hurting religious sentiments"- by pointing out that a spring of "holy water" at a church in Maharashtra was only sewage that had been sucked up through the stone in the sculpture by capillary action. Ayurvedic medicine uses dangerous amounts of mercury and lead. It is shit like that that necessitates the breaking of that language and cultural barrier. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 20:13, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
@DuceMoosolini Unfortunately, I only speak Tamil, not Hindi. India is a country with multiple languages. Iwillprobablygetbanned (Reply) 19:47, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
Oh, I always thought Hindi was national like Mandarin Chinese vs. the other Chinese languages. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 19:50, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
I could try typing in Hindi, as I am fluent in it, but it’s quite, how should I put it?... Not शुद्ध. Also, my spelling sucks. I took German as my third language than Hindi, that should say volumes about how bad I am at it. Writing essays and understanding reading comprehension questions took ages...𝗦𝗾𝗿𝘁-𝟭 talk stalk 13:39, 26 November 2020 (UTC)
@Sqrt-1 Sprichst du Deutsch? Iwillprobablygetbanned (Reply) 18:02, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

I'm a man of my word.[edit]

You'll get them back in nine hours or so. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:42, 25 November 2020 (UTC)

@GrammarCommie Um, why did you do that? Because while I get it that joke block sprees happen all the time (having handed out countless of them), we don't usually joke-promote people. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 20:45, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
I'm not joking around. You're stunt in the saloon with the {{USERNAME}} template wasn't funny. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:49, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
@GrammarCommieOh. How so? And how did it necessitate a temporary promotion/ban? --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 20:51, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
It's all fun and games until you start a fight via a joke. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:53, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
@GrammarCommie Assuming bad faith aside, I still don't see what would make you think that merits a promotion/tempban- or such a response as what you wrote in that thread. That's what I'd like to know. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 20:59, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
So congrats, you described my behavior in several arguments with Cory! And thanks to someone DMing me elsewhere, I know who you were trying to make fun of. And that it was supposed to be a joke. >_> Yeah, I wasn't amused. As for why you got blocked, it was because you hit some serious poe levels there. As for your tempt promotion, it was because you kept unblocking yourself, and I wanted the block to stick ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:06, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
@GrammarCommie I only meant to vent my frustration at that person for all of those toxic rants on the Saloon Bar, which have made it less enjoyable for not only me but many others. That was why I did it. I still don't see how one comment that was a contribution to a thread where others seemed to be doing the same merits a serious block. Please explain what you mean by "serious Poe levels". --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 21:12, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
On initial inspection it seemed that you and Cory were being dicks about me and my rather annoyed take on your responses to political theory. Specifically anarchism and its flaws. (I read and study that and a few similar subjects as a hobby, yes I know I'm a loser). And yes, I've noticed how a certain individual's constant aggressive and at times seriously out there takes have been polluting the Saloon, i.e. the main social hub, and have made a request that such... let's call them debates, be moved to debate-space. I've also been getting into arguments with them myself. So, yes I noticed the problem (and you're dislike of it) and have been trying to deal with it. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:26, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
@GrammarCommie Welp, there you go. I wasn't referring to you. So, could you please unban and redemote me? I wasn't referring to you; after all, from my POV I was venting at myself. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 21:30, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
Sure, you seemed to have understood what happened after I explained it. But now I have a new problem to figure out. Both Cory and your own posts have been flagging as unpatrolled, which shouldn't be possible since I only took your mop. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:35, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
I don't think board members can unilaterally act like that. If you were acting as a sysop I don't see the point of promoting somebody for nine hours unless they were edit warring.--Hastur! (talk) 00:50, 26 November 2020 (UTC)
@Hastur Agreed. Even if I did intend to attack GC (which I didn't, as we discussed above a few hours ago), a promotion still would not have been warranted IMO. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 01:16, 26 November 2020 (UTC)
A definite overreaction particularly given the threats of physical violence he made on Discord.--Hastur! (talk) 01:19, 26 November 2020 (UTC)
It's okay. Really. While GC may get a bit carried away at times, let's just act like all this drama never happened. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 01:20, 26 November 2020 (UTC)
@Hastur I was acting as a Sysop. I would say if I was acting as a board member. I explained my reasoning above, and after a discussion reversed my actions. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 01:22, 26 November 2020 (UTC)
