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: $3900Goal: $6000

New template for you[edit]

Charlie Kirk[edit]

Why did you undo my rollback of the recent edits to the Kirk article? All the guy did was strip out content in order to make it "less biased" which to me seems to be against the Wiki's mission. Was something there false that I'm missing? DuceMoosoliniForum Romanum 09:06, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Don’t worry, I just fixed it. LuodiWang (talk) 17:52, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

Is It Hard?[edit]

Doing this and RMF at college? I just wrapped up my first week and I was wondering if, for the good of the wiki, I should nominate myself and run. Someone needs to. But I don't want to do so if my personal life is going to be messed up because of it. RoninMacbeth (talk) 06:53, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

There's no harm in running. The RMF meets electronically for about 1 hour (usually 45m-1.5h) each quarter (3x during sch yr, 1x during summr) to discuss direction of site, legal issues, finances, etc. I'll try to pester Huw to set up formal roles for the next board (ie, Secretary, etc.) so you might have to take notes for the meeting, to check X or Y email account, etc, but that'd be about it. The board is mostly a legal formality. TLDR: 4 hour active commitment per year. oʇɐʇoԀʇɐϽʎzznℲ (talk/stalk) 06:58, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
A concern you may have: your name (and nothing else) is public on the IRS and nonprofit filings The FCP Foundation (talk/stalk) 07:02, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
I'll consider it. If no one else runs, I guess I'll do it. RoninMacbeth (talk) 07:03, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
I noticed that Abd ul-Rahman claims that there is board member named "Eric Doe", which sounds like a pseudonym. Is it necessary to give one's legal name as a board member? I would also like to second your nomination for the board, FCP. Bongolian (talk) 19:31, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
For people with common names, this may be comforting, but for people with unusual names, it is not. Bongolian (talk) 04:33, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
I admit, I have been considering dropping out. I guard my identity rather jealously, and I hope that I helped get more people involved with the election. I'm somewhat torn... RoninMacbeth (talk) 04:41, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

You need a ballot reader for the election?[edit]

If so, I'd be willing to do it. —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 07:52, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

You may need to email FCP directly, @Kazitor. See User:FuzzyCatPotato. Bongolian (talk) 07:04, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

@Kazitor sure, will let you know Mʀ. Wʜɪsᴋᴇʀs, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 19:44, 7 September 2018 (UTC)


Hi. I sent you a very important email using the RW email function. Did it work? :-) Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 16:22, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

@Bob M Yes, I'll respond today, I apologize. FuzzyCatPotato of the Incompetent Earlobes (talk/stalk) 07:50, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

This article is pretty shitty[edit]

@ShiningSwordofThoughts I unilaterally deleted it: it was not even worth debating. Bongolian (talk) 03:46, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
