RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $720Goal: $3500

Because of your edits to and time on the wiki, Autopatrolled has been added to your user rights. This lets you bypass most of the abuse filters, bypass the CAPTCHA, and edit more frequently. If you have questions, bleat ask away.

We hope you enjoy your newfound ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ — and these external tools:

  • Rbutr shows user-submitted rebuttals to your current webpage.
  • Google Scholar Button (Chrome, Firefox) searches your highlighted text in Google Scholar. Easily check academic citations!
  • web.archive.org and archive.is can save permanent copies of webpages. Never lose a crank website or racist Tweet ever again! Oxyaena Harass 09:27, 15 November 2019 (UTC)


How do I edit my signature so that the talk page link has a different text?--Deli-delibirda! (talk) 09:53, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

I'm not sure exactly what you are asking, but the answer may be here. If you can't find the answer there then you might ask in the saloon bar as not everyone checks user talk pages.
In any event, it's great to see international users and welcome to the wiki.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 14:21, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
Didn't work for some reason. Maybe the help page is outdated. Or it is something else, I dunno.Alola, my name is Delibirda! (talk) 14:43, 17 January 2020 (UTC)


Am I a Sysop?--Alola, my name is Delibirda! (talk) 19:31, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

No, you're not. And your user page is a hell of a mess. Clean it up and get rid of those categories. You're not a userbox and you aren't notable enough to be in the Norway category. Spud (talk) 10:04, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
Okay. I will do it when/if I have time.--Alola, my name is Delibirda! (talk) 10:12, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
Better now?--Alola, my name is Delibirda! (talk) 10:17, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
A bit. Get rid of that DEFAULTSORT:Evo to get the error message off yur page as well. Spud (talk) 10:35, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
Done.--Alola, my name is Delibirda! (talk) 11:58, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
Now that's better! Spud (talk) 13:00, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
We do have categories specific to RW users that you can put on your page if you want. Look under if you're interested. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 14:08, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

Another question, can I become a sysop?--Alola, my name is Delibirda! (talk) 09:09, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

Yes. You'll probably be made one soon.
And here's a question for you. Do you still plan to translate some pages into Norwegian? More pages in more languages is something I'd like to see. Spud (talk) 12:11, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
I have never said that I would do that, but maybe I can do that in my spare time. Can you send me link to a help page on translations or sumfin'?--Alola, my name is Delibirda! (talk) 12:37, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
I will refer you to RationalWiki:Languages and in particular the bit that I wrote on that page about translations. Please feel free to ask me if you have any further questions. Spud (talk)


Hi there. Unless, you know User:GretchenDahl9 from elsewhere, we generally discourage sending welcoming messages until the account has shown that it's not a spambot or troll. Thanks. Bongolian (talk) 20:05, 21 February 2020 (UTC) 'K. Is the welcoming message removed?--Alola, my name is Delibirda! (talk) 20:34, 21 February 2020 (UTC)


Because of your edits to and time on the wiki, wizard Sysop has been added to your user rights. Feel free to let your newfound ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ course through your veins. Once the high wears off, see RationalWiki:Sysop guide for more information. If you have questions, bleat ask away. Oxyaena Harass 17:06, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

You were a bit too quick to delete that page[edit]

You know, you really should wait until more than one person agrees with you before deleting a page you've nominated for deletion. I usually wait until eight people have voted for delete. That means I generally wait for a week or 10 days before doing anything. There are exceptions, of course, some pages I've nominated for deletion have had eight delete votes within 30 minutes of being nominated. Since you said the page was a hopelessly tiny stub, I'll let it go this time, But please give the mob some time to have its say in future. Spud (talk) 14:49, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
