RationalWiki's 2019 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 2019.

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: $5800Goal: $6000
Information icon.svg The 2018 moderator election has started! We are electing 6 moderators and 2 alternatives to serve in 2019. Nominate users here and read their campaign slogans here!

If you need anything just ask me, I am a pretty big deal around these parts. I have had over 25 years experience on this new technology of wiki. Acei9 09:51, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, you can't go wrong by asking ACE MCGIANT for help in any way. Well advised. ħumanUser talk:Human 10:00, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

OR[edit]

To answer your question, RationalWiki doesn't have an original research policy. However, as RW articles are best described as "collaborative essays" rather than "encyclopaedia articles", original research and the synthesis of new ideas - providing it's good, of course - is reasonably encouraged.

Thanks for clarifying. Watching your edits shows me the way it's meanta be done, so thanks for that, too. Named refs, I see :) DewiMorgan (talk) 10:27, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
You pick it up eventually. There are a couple of tricks, such as the named refs, in the help section and for everything else there's always the Media Wiki files. Scarlet A.pngpathetic 10:30, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Yah, I'm reading the newbie guide and stuff now. Which is the wrong order, I know: I'm usually better about reading community rules before posting anything. But I'd just intended to post some notes, and do clean up in the morning. ...And I'm pleased to have just discovered that this is actually how it's MEANT to work! [1]. Except I did it wrong, by forgetting to sleep. Ah, well.DewiMorgan (talk) 10:43, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
