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: $2120Goal: $3500

Mod elections[edit]

Per election rules, you're ineligible as you have not edited the wiki at least 300 times. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 06:31, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

See here for verification. It's too bad, but mod elections are every year, so I'm sure you'll be able to run then! :) Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 06:36, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Rules as written state:

  • "All candidates have to have made 300 edits by the time the election starts."
  • "All candidates have to have edited at least 10 times in the two months before the election."

Now, I'm likely going to need to wait until next year, but my eligibility under these (very reasonable) rules would depend on the definition of election:

  • Election starting with the Voting Period November 19th, 2018.
  • Election starting with the Nomination and Campaigning Period November 2nd, 2018.

Not sure who has the ruling on defining that, and the only My Cousin Vinny precedent I could find at best argues for terminology ambiguity. I think that yourself as a moderator probably has the gavel on this one. If so no hard feelings, but do me a favor and tell me what you think of My Campaign before/after a ruling is made.

To clarify my point in all this, is that if the date is the latter then I can make the 300 meaningful beneficial edits in time.

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

  • Rbutr shows user-submitted rebuttals to your current webpage.
