RationalWiki's 2018 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 seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

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: $2835Goal: $5000

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! Fuzzy. Cat. Potato! (talk/stalk) 22:56, 19 November 2016 (UTC)


Is English your second language? If so, there is nothing wrong with this, I will probably just follow you in order to correct it.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 19:20, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

It is indeed my second language, I am french. But I write pages fast, to check the grammar mistakes when the page is complete. Diacelium (talk) 19:23, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
I thought so. I also type quickly which creates errors due to my poor skill. Also, using a colon(s) will space your comment which helps users know who you are responding to.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 00:17, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

On the Égalité et Réconciliation page you use the above term three times but I have never heard this term before. I looked it up and the closest thing I could find was a Wikipedia article called CommunautarismeWikipedia's W.svg which, when translated, appears to mean a philosophical belief that individuals don't exist outside their identity. Is this the translation you were going for?--Owlman (talk) (mail) 18:52, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure about the translation. What it's supposed to mean is a life in community, gays live with gays, muslim with muslims etc... And they are a community, and follow the same rule. It places the community à vive the others, it is to community what nationalism is to the Nation. But I'm not sure What Soral meant by communautarianism (english translation). From Wikipedia : "Although the community might be a family unit, communitarianism usually is understood, in the wider, philosophical sense, as a collection of interactions, among a community of people in a given place (geographical location), or among a community who share an interest or who share a history" Diacelium (talk) 22:57, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
How I read it is that Soral is attacking what he perceives as an identity which creates a class division with loyalty to other social constructs like race and religion; at least, that is what I interpret from what you wrote.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 00:06, 21 December 2016 (UTC)


I'm sorry about reverting some of your edits at the melenchon article. I added all of the links and fixed the spelling and grammar to English standards. PbFreespace (talk) 00:38, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

I put the references back, so it's not a problem. Thanks for helping ! Diacelium (talk) 00:40, 29 December 2016 (UTC)




HAVE YOU NO INKSCAPE FuzzyCatPotato of the Slimy Rucksacks (talk/stalk) 03:21, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

I know, I know. I don't know how to make something better. Diacelium (talk) 03:28, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
1: Download Inkscape.
2: Download the source .svg of AmericanPolitics.
3: Download an .svg of the French flag.
You can probably figure it out. Fuzzy. Cat. Potato! (talk/stalk) 03:46, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
I don't know if Inkscape will change it, but I can't download .svg files. Diacelium (talk) 03:52, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
Inkscape won't change it, because you can. Try this: Go here, right click, download. Herr FüzzyCätPötätö (talk/stalk) 04:33, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
The problem is solved. Doesn't it look much better now ?

Now, the question is why the fuck doesn't the text show up. Diacelium (talk) 04:37, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

On welcoming new accounts[edit]

While it's always nice of you to toss out a {{welcome}}, the existence of the {{unwelcome}} and {{meh}} templates basically mean that all three templates are supposed to be given out based on the contributions made by the new account. Meaning, we generally don't give out the {{welcome}} template to an account with zero contributions, as it's too early to tell if it's a troll or w/e. Just saying. Th hug.gif All the best buddy, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 11:22, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

OK, I thought it was for all new members and that we changed it if they were trolls. Thanks for the info. Diacelium (talk) 11:32, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Well, I mean, you could do that too if you want to, of course. It's always nice to assume "innocence" in new users (hehe). But it is also my impression that users feel more welcomed when they recieve their welcome template as a result of having done their first edit, no matter how minor. If they just get one immediately upon registering, it becomes less personal and more like an automated message, in a sense. Oh well. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 12:06, 15 January 2017 (UTC)


It would be better if you could spend some effort doing the hard work of making pages better than Wikipedia, rather than the easy work making a series of stubs (e.g., Économistes Atterrés, Yanis Varoufakis, Currency competition). Bongolian (talk) 21:41, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Well, Currency competition shouldn't really be a stub anymore, other people have worked on it. I said pretty much all that had to be said on Yanis Varoufakis. For Économistes Atterrés, I actually just wanted to make it about SLAM, but it was too small, so I decided to make it about all the group of economists, but I realized there wasn't much to say. The better should be to just vaporize the page. Diacelium (talk) 22:01, 20 January 2017 (UTC)


You made a mistake with the <vote poll=worldxxxxx> widget when you put your link about the Trump medal to the Saudi prince (two articles shared <vote poll=world15499>). This has already been corrected. I'm just warning you to be attemptive next time. Faunas (talk) 16:32, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Your recent deletions[edit]

Hi there. I see you deleted several pages all at about the same time and without apparent explanation. Can you explain why you did this? Bongolian (talk) 23:33, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

A big part of the pages I deleted were user pages, the other were pages that didn't deserve their own pages (New Anticapitalist Party), other were useless stubs where that weren't useful to the Wiki (Degrowth, for example). I think that all the pages that I deleted were pages that I created in the first place, and that I probably shouldn't have created. If I deleted someone else's page, it was a mistake. Diacelium (talk) 23:43, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
OK, in the future it would be better to give an explanation for the mainspace page deletions at the time that you had deleted them. Bongolian (talk) 03:14, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
