Hey man, sorry about the article being deleted. The mob just has these missiony tasks. Here's this and this if you need it.--Colonel Sanders (talk) 20:40, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Your writing[edit]

I'm guessing that you're not a native English speaker. If that's the case, I'm impressed by the effort that you're putting into the Slovenia article. That being said, it's just about impossible for us to figure out what you're trying to say so that we can edit your work and bring your prose in line with the rest of our articles -- not a lot of us have a very refined sense of what's going on in slovenian politics. Perhaps you can give us a sense of what you'd like the article to say on the Talk:Slovenia page, and we can help you get it up to scratch BEFORE putting it into the main page. Thanks. P-Foster (talk) 18:32, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

No, I'm not native English speaker. I'll try posting on talk more :D DasRationalpersone (talk) 19:01, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

China![edit]

Your mop was made there. Get to work.--Colonel Sanders (talk) 18:30, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Qu'ran[edit]

Reworked your "perfect" section. Please review the changes to make sure they still say what you wanted to say. :-) good changes, we should add them to "bible" if they are not already there, cause of course the creationists do the very same thing with biblical texts.--Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 14:05, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! "Perfect" section is now even more perfect  :) DasRationalpersone (talk) 14:40, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Tolkin[edit]

He's also a wizbang linguist. Some of his studies on Gaelic (which he used as a sort of base, both in sound and structure for the various elven languages) are really well researched in insightful.--Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 17:08, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

I know I'm responding to an old post here, but it doesn't surprise me that he still addressed the priests in Latin. Guy was crazy about languages, and would be loathe to give up a language that he knew and loved. --Eira OMTG! The Goat be Praised. 13:13, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
Probably. I like latin, too and can't wait to start learning it. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 17:29, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

"Initiative."[edit]

I'm getting tired of correcting the exact same mistake. It's "initiative." Use your spell check, okay? Thanks. P-FosterCan't we talk about this, baby?Moderator 13:52, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

TAA Link[edit]

Well spotted. I checked the fossil record and it was slipped in by a BoN under cover of more pertinant edits. Oh well, no one said we were immune from trolling. Bad Faith (talk) 18:20, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

I want the article searched daily for "banana," m'kay? -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 18:27, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

"Slovenian"[edit]

In English, I believe the adjective would be "Slovenian," the noun form "Solvene." A Slovene speaks Slovenian, just like a Serb speaks Serbian. PintOfStout Talk Good people drink good beer. 01:20, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

"Slovene language" can be used. Since "Slovene" people are ethnic Slovenes while "Slovenians" are citizens of Slovenia, I figured using adjective "Slovene" would be more correct. Using "Slovenian" language is not wrong though. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 09:55, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
You could write something like "DasRP speaks the Slovene language", (note the definite article in there, something that a lot of Eastern Euros forget to put it), and maybe be grammatically correct, but most native-English speakers and writers wouldn't. They would say "Slovenian." As for distinguishing between Slovenian citizens and Slovenians as an ethnic group, you're right, this is an issue, like it is with lots of group/nations/etc. in that part of the world and elsewhere. Your solution doesn't necessarily solve that ambiguity. That's why you'll often see the phrase "ethnic Albanians" to describe Albanian people living in Kosovo, say, or something similar to talk about people who identify as Serbian living in Bosnia...PintOfStout Talk Good people drink good beer. 14:36, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
W/e. Piši što govoriš. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 12:24, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
I don't read Slovenian, but if by "W/e" you mean "whatever," that's a pretty nasty attitude to display to somebody who is simply trying to help you improve your contributions and who has edited some of your prose into shape so that it fits the project better. If you mean something else by the phrase, my apologies and please do clarify what you mean. PintOfStout Talk Good people drink good beer. 13:35, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
I wanted to say that I don't really care if it's "Slovene" or "Slovenian," that I won't fanatically defend one option and that if you really want me to write "Slovenian" I will do so, you just say it. Sorry for being zen ... (Btw, piši što govoriš is Serbo-Croatian for "write like you talk.") -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 14:47, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Style[edit]

I've had users complaining about my style, I tried to put stuff right but whatever I did they just found new reasons to complain. I suggest you try and put problems right, if they just keep on complaining look for less critical websites. You're welcome at Liberapedia or Atheism Wiki. If English isn't your native language you can always look for websites in your native language. Proxima Centauri (talk) 16:15, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, man. Appreciate it. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 16:22, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

"Feminazi-hijacked wiki"[edit]

Stay classy. If I knew the way/I would take you home. 21:07, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Oh, you're so witty. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 16:43, 21 June 2013 (UTC)
