Awesome Award

for Cosmikdebris

Reason: being awesome

For going through the RationalWiki:Websites page and pruning some of the examples in that list. I'd intended to get to examining it closer for a bit (it's honestly somewhat bloated up with people where I question the missionality for when I saw it), but I had completely forgotten of it's existence.

Facilitated Communication[edit]

Thanks for fixing my formatting errors! I also noticed there was a change to the "reflist", from 90 to 80%. Sorry for being a newbie, but what does this mean? Has the article become less referenced than it was? Also, what should I do when several, separate, passages, make use of the same reference? Type in another ref with the same URL, or is that bad form? UninspiringNickname (talk) 19:06, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

@UninspiringNickname The reflist number simply specifies the scale at which it is rendered, i.e., 80 percent versus 90 percent.
To use a single citation in more than one place in an article, use the name parameter in the ref tag. For example do this for the first reference:
...as seen on the zappahead site.<ref name=zappahead>[http://zappahead.net Zappahead] home page.</a></ref>
and for subsquent references do this:
...as also seen on the zappahead site.<ref name=zappahead />
In the reference list the two citations will appear on a single line.
My editor's guide shows this code in action. Hope this helps. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 19:14, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

I formally resign.[edit]

Go replace me with some delusional asshat or whatever. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:56, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Should I edit the user rights, or give GC a day or two to mull everything over? Corgi (yak) 19:00, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
@CorruptUser I'm going to wait a while before making any action. Thanks. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 01:00, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

How stupid are you???[edit]

It says in the deletion log:

15:20, 11 April 2021 Cosmikdebris (talk | contribs) deleted page Category:Populist wingnuttery (unnecessary and empty category)

Since I'm vandal binned, I have to wait thirty minutes just to put one article in that category. And did you even read the edit summary for when I created that category????? Unclescrooge (talk) 15:29, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

You’re right about the vandal bin, but there’s no need to jump to insults. I don’t think we need any more Category:Political insanity subcategories, in fact I don’t think we need any, I’ll nominate them for deletion at some point. Christopher (talk) 15:36, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Huh, I did not know you were in the vandal bin. Regardless, I consider all of the various "wingnuttery" and "moonbattery" categories as superfluous, opinionated, and subject to abuse by random internet slobs who just like to push their political opinions on the wiki. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 15:40, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
The whole point I created the category is because of how increasingly relevant populism is becoming in current politics. Unclescrooge (talk) 16:05, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Populist wingnuttery would apply only to right wingers, populism or populists is a better category imo. Christopher (talk) 16:08, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Unrelated, but I miss category batshit crazy]] and category insufferable assholes]]. A category about populism (not populist wingnuttery or moonbattery) would be good, but it's also dangerous because populism became a snarl word. We can have a discussion on that though.

As your name is "Cosmikdebris"[edit]

And sounding like a denizen of Spacejunk Galaxy. I expect you know a bit more about Super Mario Galaxy lore. and I hope my Mario references aren't anywhere near obnoxiousalso the only good Super Mario Wiki is Super Mario Wiki; it's my internet persona birthplace; at that wiki, you can even see posts where I was still a 14-year old teenager --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 03:51, 15 May 2021 (UTC)
