My name[edit]

Strange name, you didn't mean Diadochos did you? Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 06:47, 15 January 2009 (EST)

Hi Genghis - I don't know, actually. I took what I imagined to be the singular of "Diadochi," or, the peers of Alexander the Great during his conquests. -Diadochus 16:46, 15 January 2009 (EST)
'Tis Greek, not Latin. Phantom Hoover 16:48, 15 January 2009 (EST)
Ah, Hoover, 'tis both. "Diadochi" is the latinization of the Greek "Diadokhi," or so sayeth that repository of anti-family liberal bias Wikipedia.-Diadochus 16:49, 15 January 2009 (EST)
Ah, but I have only studied Latin, and it would seem that someone is using something other than the nominative here. Phantom Hoover 16:51, 15 January 2009 (EST)
Bah. That article was clearly the work of liberal parodists. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 16:53, 15 January 2009 (EST)
Fine, you have caught me. I have a year of college Latin tops, and little more history, but I like the name :). What should it have been? Hopefully I accidentally declined it in the vocative. Having a name that translates "O, Successor of Alexander!" would be AWESOME.-Diadochus
Actually, according to my Latin textbook, it could be 2nd declension nominative plural, which would make sense. Phantom Hoover 16:56, 15 January 2009 (EST)
I wish I could help you with that; I took two years of Latin in high school, but I've forgotten most of it. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 16:57, 15 January 2009 (EST)
Don't worry Diadoche, you're on solid ground. Phantom Hoover 16:59, 15 January 2009 (EST)
Should I add a new entry to the "differences with Wikipedia" entry at CP, indicating, "unlike Wikipedia, Conservapedia never gets its f#%*(&(&% Latin wrong"?-Diadochus 17:04, 15 January 2009 (EST)
But Wikipedia was right in this case. Phantom Hoover 17:05, 15 January 2009 (EST)
Wasn't there a scene based on this in "Life of Brian?" CorryDr. Funke's 100 Percent Natural Good Time Family Band Solution 08:37, 16 January 2009 (EST)

Condolences.[edit]

See, I told you, the right word is "condolences" when being made a sysop. hold on a moment, I'll dig up the paperwork for you. TheoryOfPractice 17:35, 18 January 2009 (EST)

Ah, here it is. Now you can vandal-bin offenders, too. It's easy. TheoryOfPractice 17:37, 18 January 2009 (EST)
YOU FOOLS! Cower before my "special pages"! In other words... thanks, I think!-Diadochus 17:38, 18 January 2009 (EST)
Holy crap, the vandal bin thing is a great idea. Why doesn't CP use that to create a more friendly atmosphere? Then again i suppose that's not their point...-Diadochus 17:39, 18 January 2009 (EST)
"to create a more friendly atmosphere" a-hahahahahahahahahah. You crack me up. TheoryOfPractice 17:40, 18 January 2009 (EST)
If the CPers could press a button and make wandals' computers explode, they would. Why whould they want a LESS stringent punishment? --Gulik 17:49, 18 January 2009 (EST)
I just got this great mental picture of Karajou range-exploding all of Oxford's computers.-Diadochus 17:52, 18 January 2009 (EST)

Ref[edit]

Why remove the xref? I thought it was quite Logical.--Tolerance 15:40, 28 February 2009 (EST)

I didn't see what the Villainy guide had in common to your article.-Diadochus 15:41, 28 February 2009 (EST)
There were two links. One to another RW Article. As to the Relevance, all three articles talk about Infiltrating wikis.--Tolerance 16:04, 28 February 2009 (EST)
They are, but not in anything close to the same manner. The Villainist's guide is about subverting the rules by becoming the only person they protect; your guide is about using our much broader rules to be contrarian, but honestly so.-Diadochus 21:02, 28 February 2009 (EST)
