Welcome to the melodramatic xylene of the internet! Aboriginal Noise Oh, what a lovely tea party! 18:16, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Hello!The Goonie 1 What's this button do? Uh oh.... 19:55, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
Welcome! Don't mind the xylene! — Sincerely, Neveruse513 / Talk / Block 20:02, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! - I'm not quite sure what to make of the first comment..... May I congratulate you all on your outstanding work DeltaStar 00:12, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
My comment uses random adjectives and nouns. Usually sounds like a Mad-Lib. Aboriginal Noise Oh, what a lovely tea party! 00:24, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Sysop[edit]

Due to an excess surplus of sysopships, you've been demoted to the rank of sysop here. There's a guide around here somewhere for you. Cheers! The Spikey Punk I'm punking my punk! 21:45, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Wow! I'm honoured! I've never been a sysop before! What makes it even more flattering is that I'm joining so many others (everyone?) as a sysop! DeltaStar 13:44, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
Welcome to the Dollhouse, DeltaStar! Nice to have you around. ħumanUser talk:Human 10:07, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
Why thank you very much. I think we should be grateful for the lord blessing us with the endless entertainment that is bible-bashers! DeltaStar 12:14, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Who were you on cp?[edit]

I'd like to take a look at some of your work if it's still around. — Unsigned, by: Opcn / talk / contribs

No problem Assfly, I'll point it right out so you can delete it! DeltaStar 09:23, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Oooh, clever. They'll just have to wait until you forget to log in so they can spot your IP like everyone else. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 09:31, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Right enough, that's rather foolish of me. It is early still...
Here's my contributions before that last account got blocked. I started with a dig at those stupid 'oil will one day run out' liberals with an edit to [1], and also added to the CP article matrix with this baby!img

I was in initially reluctant to post my CP edits up on here, in case they find them and revert/delete them, but they've blocked my account so they know what I've posted anyway. It's all still up there, so they must like it! DeltaStar 09:42, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

They don't usually delete the parody after blocking the parodist anyway. they probably can't tell the difference. Totnesmartin 09:55, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Bah, I'm still trying to get the hang of this formatting.... What's the general procedure for showing off one's work without CP deleting it?DeltaStar 10:01, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
That's the point. If you stick in something, even if you're taking the piss they'll probably still like it. It definitely happened when I last went on an article-matrix drive - they eventually deleted some of them, though. But I suppose that's why Poe's Law had to be invented. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 10:27, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Sig[edit]

You don't need a link inside User:DeltaStar/sig/name, just put the style you want the sig to read. - π 03:23, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Now you will need to wrap the link around the template so it says [[User:DeltaStar|{{User:DeltaStar/sig/name}}]] - π 03:26, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your help - let's see how this goes... DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 03:28, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
You need to put, [[User:DeltaStar|{{User:DeltaStar/sig/name}}]] on User:DeltaStar/sig and how you want your name to appear on User:DeltaStar/sig/name. - π 03:30, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Hmmmm, right. I'm back to where I started DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 03:37, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
I'll fix it. - π 03:37, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
You are THE man! Cheers! DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 03:40, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Okay I rolled you back to about 4 hours ago when you had it right. Just edit User:DeltaStar/sig/name and User:DeltaStar/sig/talk to change the appearance of the links, don't put any links on these pages. Change User:DeltaStar/sig to adjust the style of your sig; ListnerX and Genghis for example have picture in front of their sigs that don't link back to anything. - π 03:42, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Right-ho, but why is my speciationspeed not linking to my talk page? If I go to User:DeltaStar/sig then it appears correctly, but not in my sig. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 03:47, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
You are on that page, see. - π 04:11, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
D'oh! - It's been a long nightshift. Thanks again Piman! DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 04:41, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Jinx[edit]

Taking a cheap shot/trying to score political points/argument points/calling a guy who's obviously in a bit of a situation a "twat" is a little dickish to me. Dude has "abnormal cells" in his lungs. Not a good time to take a stranger on the internet to task--a better time to remember he's an actual human being.TheoryOfPractice 02:36, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

I think Jinx is a twat - have you read some of his contributions? Yes, now he is ill, and I genuinely wish him all the best; but that doesn't stop me from thinking he's a twat. I don't think it's any more diskish to call someone a twat when they're ill than when they're not, but of course it would be wrong to have a go at someone because of their illness, which I'd never do. Should I have called him a twat whilst wishing him a speedy recovery? Possibly not... DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 02:47, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

From my conglomerate to yours...[edit]

All the staff at McWicked Co. wish you a merry christmas.

I resent that. -- Mei (talk) 21:35, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

You are jealous because I am Superfast. -- Mei (talk) 21:35, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
Mei, I award you the Hat of Comedy Achievement and Edit list Obfuscation. Wear it with pride. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 21:37, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
The fact that you say Huzzah! makes me imagine you as a toaster. Good times. -- Mei (talk) 21:38, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
Now that was some good KenDoll editing! Well done Sir! DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 21:40, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

Dara[edit]

So I'm guessing "Mock the Week" isn't on your list of favorite comedy shows then? CrundyTalk nerdy to me 12:23, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Nope, it's not even on my list of 'comedy shows what I can't stand'. The guy's not funny, I know that's no reason to detest him, but I can't help it, he's just a complete fucking arsepiece!. There was a series on recently called '3 men in a boat', in which Rory McGrath, Griff Rhys-Jones and Dara Fucking O'Brian went on a narrowboat holiday around Ireland. It was a nice little show, the sort of lighthearted bumf that I'd happily watch (McGrath and Rhys-Jones are good blokes too) but I just couldn't watch it because of that fucking prick! Arrgghhhh! I think I need help. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 12:37, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Talisker ...[edit]

... after Ardbeg & Lagavulin, is #3 on my list. yummy Toast&  honey(or marmalade) 17:06, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Good stuff Sue, have you sampled a good MacAllan's? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 23:04, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

not fake[edit]

It was not fake. I was editing during that three seconds and I claim my ten shillings. Mei (talk) 21:32, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

You are just jealous of my ip address. Mei (talk) 21:32, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
That is pretty sharp editing! Congrats! (Your 10/- are in the post) Good IP address though! DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 21:35, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

cuz u asked[edit]

yes i Speak spanish its my major rational ghey (send a message) 22:25, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Fucking good for you mate, I wish I'd paid more attention in Spanish lessons at school, it's a very good language to know. As a grown-up I've learnt rough Scandinavian, of course that's not a language, but I can make myself understood across Norway, Sweden and Denmark (Finnish is absurdly far away). Have a good time in spain fella. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 02:30, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

WIGO Conflict[edit]

Sorry about that but by the time I saw you had added it too, the separate WIGO already had three votes, none of which was mine. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 21:53, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

No problem, great minds think alike. I was going to sock-up and do some Hitlering, but Kenny obliges of his own accord! DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 21:55, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

This is just so I don't forget where I put it[edit]

Great work! Is it vandalism if it's completely accurate?

Curry[edit]

Well, here's the first draft. It's based on my Keema recipe so I might need to modify the quantities a little, but that's the gist of it. CrundyTalk nerdy to me 11:41, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

EvilFlyingMonkey: Metapedia[edit]

I think the bits inserted by EFM were quotes from Metapedia. Not going there to check though. 14:13, 27 May 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast

That was the impression I got as well. Don't think it was his opinion. CrundyTalk nerdy to me 14:15, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, sorry, my mistake! I didn't check the context, just the stupidity. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 14:31, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, those are definitely quotes from the wiki about the relevant pages, demonstrating the stupidity of Metapedia. Javasca₧ whats up? 14:46, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Did I miss something? Hopes not. rational ghey (message) 15:22, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Yes, you did. 15:24, 27 May 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast

replied[edit]

you piece of shit. rational homohey 22:19, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Now that is being a dick! You asked for feedback, and I gave you my opinion. I was polite, and even ended my edit with 'cheers'. I didn't pull any punches with my description of your edits because I do think they were terrible. If you are so hurt by someone calling your childish edits "fucking shit" that you feel the need to call that person a "piece of shit" on their talkpage, then maybe the internet isn't the place for you. Peace. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 22:40, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Tyre pics[edit]

Why the copyvios when you've got a cc-licenced barely legal? (A pun I loled at.) - David Gerard (talk) 14:27, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Which one is the CC? I've got one of them on a share-alike. I will contact to owners of the copyrighted ones and ask if I can use them here (although they'll probably think I'm a weirdo) DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 14:45, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Dear gentleman at a rather liberal talk page[edit]

I note that you're a big fan of a certain article beginning with "Article". I've made a number of improvements to the article. I have learned that there may be a number of further improvements that may be made to the article in regards to the article's improvements. How can I email TedC? The crow flies at noon. *cough* ONE / TALK 14:11, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

I have worked tirelessly with regards to said article beginning with 'A', and if required I could facilitate an email forwardation arrangement between myself and a gentlemen whose name begins with 'T'. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 20:55, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
Excellent. Do you have IM? ONE / TALK 09:54, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Nah, fraid not. I'm not really in to all that crap. If it's simple enough to setup then I don't mind giving it a shot. Which one in particular do you use? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 11:01, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
No worries, we don't need it really. Pop me an email and we'll discuss the Ides of March ;) ONE / TALK 12:42, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
You need to set your preferences to 'enable' with regards to receiving email from other gentlemen. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 14:17, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
'Ere, just 'oo does youse fink youse is callin' a gennleman? Youse wanna take it outside? --PsyGremlinSiarad! 14:25, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
With regards to a certain gentleman with a username beginning with P, I will not tolerate liberal threats with regards to my talk page. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 19:32, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Gerard thinks he the cock of the walk around here. He truly is an obnoxious wanker and I don't know how he is tolerated. Thanks for having the courage to stand up to him - if only more did. I also going to add you as a Champion of Liberty. 86.40.96.239 (talk) 20:50, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

argumentum ad Brad Pittium[edit]

I laughed for a solid 2 minutes. Thanks! Tetronian you're clueless 16:19, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Nobody laughs that long. Ever. And that was an example of a person using a relativistic argument, not an argument itself, stupid wannabes. --Idiot number 59 (talk) 16:23, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
No, seriously. My roommate got a chuckle out of it as well. Tetronian you're clueless 16:26, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
What, in the dormitory of nerds without any sense of humor? --Idiot number 59 (talk) 16:31, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
Why thankyou Tet! Now to write the article... DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 16:32, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Borked![edit]

Sir! I regret to inform you that the [tinyurl.com/37jx3o URL] you sent to fight the good fight, has been reported missing, assumed borked. --PsyGremlinSnakk! 12:34, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Bollocks, it's meant to have a 9 on the end. I don't think you can edit comments over there either.... DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 12:37, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
Post another comment correcting yourself. CrundyTalk nerdy to me 12:44, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
But then people will think I'm a sock of Ken! DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 12:58, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Dara fucking O'Brian?[edit]

I quite like him :P Dalek (talk) 16:58, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Me too. 17:14, 2 November 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast
For some reason, I pictured Donncha O'Dulaing, who presented Fáilte Isteach (a very quaint show on RTE). Used to pick it up on late night world radio network. --PsyGremlinParla! 17:22, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
It is your right to decide to like him, but unfortunately the man is a complete twat. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 20:07, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
Patrick Fucking Kielty on the other hand, I can agree with. Did you see his stint on that big Channel 4 comedy charity gig (where they had a bazillion comedians do a short piece each). He went on forever about having a "Christian Jihad" on the middle-east. I've never seen an audience at a comedy show look so uncomfortable - and I've seen people react to dead baby jokes. It would have been forgivable if it was actually funny. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 01:34, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
Nah, fortunately I've not seen that, although I can imagine how cringe worthy it must've been. A lot of unfunny twats like that seem to think that if you are 'edgy' and controversial then it's automatically funny - it's not; on the contrary in fact - you have to be very funny to be able to get away with material like that (one of the reasons I don't like Frankie Boyle). I have seen a bit of O'Brian recently, and as it's the season of goodwill, I'm going to downgrade him a notch. (Although this is only for a probationary period) DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 22:29, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
I think Frankie Boyle actually gets away with it, most of the time at least. Even at his most tactless he isn't cringeworthy, exactly. Although he does get a little predictable when you can tell he's about to say something like "hey, I masturbated to a video of Hitler eating a baby last night!!!". It's also a good thing that he finally left Mock The Week as it was turning into the How-Is-Frankie-Going-Piss-Everyone-Off-Today Show. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 22:49, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Banging tunes[edit]

Dance music from the 1990's and 00's you say? I have always been partial to Detriot Techno myself. Aceword up 18:13, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Aye man. My current car (a tank of a 1990 Vovlo) doesn't have a CD player in it, so I've been listening to my old mixtapes (yes, cassette tapes!) from when I fancied myself as a bit of a DJ. Kind of got me in the mood for delving through youtube after a few beers! <midlifecrisis>I must dig my 1210s out of the cupboard sometime!</midlifecrisis> I was never really in to the Detroit stuff, although I don't mind a bit of funky house. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 18:37, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
Now that is one genre I could never get into. Then again, being into psy/goa trance (hence the nick) does put me on the opposite end of the banging scale :) altho these days old age has guided me into the more sedate realms of progressive trance. --Ψ GremlinRunāt! 18:44, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
I was into banging bouncy house and big vocal trance, some people considered it too cheesey, but I was more concerned with having fun than looking cool. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 18:47, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
Heh, when you're having a stomp in the middle of a field, with a bunch of hippies, looking cool isn't an option :) --Ψ GremlinFale! 18:55, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
GGAAAR! I hate trance, a corruption of techno. It makes a mockery of the legends in the field - Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Jeff Mills, the Underground Resistance. Also, nasty Swedish techno from Smith and Selway, Cari Lekebusch, Adam Beyer - ahhhh that's the money maker... Aceword up 19:51, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
