Most unfortunate news[edit]

You've been made into a sysop. Please report to your nearest bureaucrat with your broom and dustpan. Thank you. Gooniepunk2010 Oi! Oi! Oi! 00:18, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?! Dalek (talk) 00:18, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
Because I needed a janitor of my very own. Lord of the Goons The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 00:21, 12 October 2010 (UTC)


In addition to {{ken}} to render  K e n  D o l l  we also have {{kens}} K e n D o l l ' s  to avoid the cumbersome looking  K e n  D o l l 's.


Seeing that template get so much use makes Baby Jesus cry. Scarlet A.pngpostate 17:04, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Ahha, thank you. Dalek (talk) 17:47, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Election chart thing[edit]

Should we put it in Forum or main space? TyrannisAn Iron, but caring, fist 17:52, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

I'd be inclined to a simple Fun or RationalWiki page. We can all put predictions on the page, and then discuss things during the night on the talk page? Wikitable can be copied fairly easily from the Fun:Best Liberal Words page. Dalek (talk) 18:01, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
Ok, I'll make the article(mainspace). TyrannisAn Iron, but caring, fist 18:03, 2 November 2010 (UTC)


We have them, they just forgot them, or the fact that some were created by a rather controversial member who has since retired. [[Category:Barnstar_award_templates]]. TyrannisAn iron, yet caring fist 14:14, 10 November 2010 (UTC)


I like your sig[edit]

That's all. Now run larronsicut fur in nocte 21:23, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you sir. DalekEXTERMINATE 21:40, 10 November 2010 (UTC)


We don't delete talkpage posts here, unless they are obvious spam or vandalism. Thanks. Lord of the Goons The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 01:22, 12 November 2010 (UTC)



You revealed your IP by accident again. If your IP is static then you can block it if you want, just check the anons only box and you can still edit. --Onion Hi! :) 02:03, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Will block it now. Any chance you could remove that edit? Sorrrry! And thanks for all the help. DalekEXTERMINATE 02:06, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
I already blocked your IP. No further action required. AnarchoGoon Swatting Assflys is how I earn my living 02:08, 12 November 2010 (UTC)


Per user request, you are a ninja now. Lord of the Goons The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 20:41, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks a lot. Daleks are known for their stealthless murder stealth. DalekEXTERMINATE 20:53, 17 November 2010 (UTC)


Have you see MediaWiki:Welcomecreation? It's the message every newbie now sees automatically after they create their account. --Onion Hi! :) 21:43, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Oh, that's cool. Can we edit this just like any other article (I know it is bureaucrat-locked), or is it limited in size and style? DalekEXTERMINATE 21:44, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
I don't think there's really a limit on style, I originally created it to look just like the welcome template. --Onion Hi! :) 21:48, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
Maybe I'm paranoid, but I imagine a lot of people skipping it over and barely noticing it, just going back to main page or whatever, maybe some colour would help it out. If I made a suggested one, in my userspace, would people be at least prepared to look at it, or shall we just leave it to the 'crats? DalekEXTERMINATE 21:51, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
There's no reason not to. --Onion Hi! :) 21:53, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

There's only thee and me ...[edit]

... and in a minute there'll be only thee. - gone shoppin'. have a nice day. 10:15, 20 November 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast

Have a nice day too :). Wait, there's only me?! Finally, time to go into bot mode and start pushing my Creationist agenda! DalekEXTERMINATE 10:16, 20 November 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for that. I have no idea why it double-posted, I only hit it once. --Kels (talk) 14:11, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

No problem, my computer seems to do it sometimes too. No idea why. DalekEXTERMINATE 14:12, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

That bouncing ball[edit]

I was away for a while, and missed the mass removal of the {{wp}} template. How about putting something like this in a visible spot on the template page or its /doc page?

Information icon.svg This template is reserved for individually determined special cases.

Before adding it to any mainspace page, first seek consensus on that article's talk page.

Good call, shall do. Thankies. DalekEXTERMINATE 23:37, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Cheers, I see what you did. Well, some of it. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 23:53, 20 November 2010 (UTC)


I think I'll try to write up something about pi woo tomorrow to fill out the pseudomathematics stuff a bit. Do you have any thoughts about what pages should be created? I'm thinking that infamous Indiana law might deserve its own page, but I'm not sure what to do with the other stuff. All the claimed values for pi stuff is closely intertwined with squaring the circle, but as it stands that page is more or a less a subset of compass and straightedge constructions. I'm thinking of changing squaring the circle to focus more on specific claimed values for pi and other stupid stuff people have said. Another possibility would just be to dump all this stuff on a page "Fallacies about pi" or something and keep it in one place. Any comments? --MarkGall (talk) 05:29, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
