Thanks ...

... for de-Kenning my talk page. 😀 — Unsigned, by: Scream!! / talk / contribs

I would like to propose the creation of a new article

We don't seem to currently have a page on ancient lost technology, such as the recipe for Damascus steel, which I find odd considering we have pages on plenty of individual examples. The world would be better able to sort the woo from the facts if we had one. Browsing the "Real Life" tab on the tvtropes page on this phenomenon, I've noticed several key differences between how this usually happens in fiction versus how it usually happens in the real world. For one, half the time it's simply because we figured out a better way of doing it (such as the breed of dog known as the turnspit being rendered obsolete by the electric motor), or it would otherwise simply not be that big a deal if rediscovered (such as Cuir-bouilli, a Medieval process by which leather could be hardened into rigid and solid 3D objects. Useful, but hardly society-changing).Skadooshbag (talk) 00:39, 3 July 2022 (UTC)

@Skadooshbag I'm retired. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:32, 3 July 2022 (UTC)

two choices

saw the block log. I got two suggestions for you.

  • you either unblock yourself and contribute to the community without taking swipes at other people
  • you stay blocked.

@LeftyGreenMario What exactly am I supposed to contribute? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 22:24, 3 July 2022 (UTC)
Such as if you want to join us needing to block a troll, you can voice your opinion without flaming everyone. That'll make that process go slightly faster. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 22:26, 3 July 2022 (UTC)
@LeftyGreenMario What, exactly, am I supposed to contribute? I try to deal with trolls and asshats, I get burned. I try to clean up categories, I get burned. So. What, exactly, am I supposed to contribute? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 11:57, 4 July 2022 (UTC)
For starters, work on your patience. That category dispute was months ago and that should've been dropped. It's a typical wiki dispute where disagreements are held, sometimes strong sentiments are exchanged, but it eventually resolved. This is not a last-straw situation, that's what's expected when you're dealing with people. As with dealing with trolls, people seem to have different thresholds with how to deal with them. I know I've egged that Styx fan a while back, but we've egged with Ken socks and that Dutchbag RobSmith guy without banning them on sight. It seems like we need to come to some sort of agreement on how to deal with them, and we're not going to respond to these issues with quitting all together and flaming other people are we? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 01:49, 5 July 2022 (UTC)
@LeftyGreenMario Thank you for you comment in ATIM. It helps to contextualize your current engagement with me. Please cease any and all further communication with me. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 02:12, 5 July 2022 (UTC)
Nope. You're at the chicken coop. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 03:07, 5 July 2022 (UTC)

Oi are you back?

I seen some recent edits from ya in the Saloon bar. I hope ya are returning. You are are beacon of hope in my remaining sanity. One more interaction with Cory and I am going to fucking lose it. - Only Sort of Dumb (talk) 20:37, 17 December 2022 (UTC)

@OnlySortaDumb Too busy with moving and study at the moment, though I have considered it somewhat. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:39, 17 December 2022 (UTC)
Don't let those shitheaded vandals at the bar get to you. I just protected it to stop those shenanigans. Welcome back, good to see you here again! King Bowser K. Rool (talk) 01:06, 18 December 2022 (UTC)
I nuked the vandals for a couple of hours. If they come back, I will nuke them again. Cheers. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 01:40, 18 December 2022 (UTC)
I was wondering where the resident shithead went. Out of curiousity how? At any rate, good work! King Bowser K. Rool (talk) 01:41, 18 December 2022 (UTC)
glad to see you're doing ok. hope to see you on here more, in time. The G (talk) 20:04, 22 December 2022 (UTC)
Hello. Glad you’re back. You’re like me. Acei9 21:42, 22 December 2022 (UTC)


Every time I remember to check this site the Saloon is full of the most inane bullshit. Grow the fuck up. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 19:11, 20 January 2023 (UTC)

I lose brain cells every time I engage with it. I feel with every post Cory makes I get dumber and dumber. - Only Sort of Dumb (talk) 19:36, 20 January 2023 (UTC)
Do you think it used to be better? I have mostly found it to be tedious to read since 2016. Ariel31459 (talk) 21:15, 20 January 2023 (UTC)
Then there is this other one who vaguely skirts around suggesting questionable shit then calls you a narcissist if you call them out on it. - Only Sort of Dumb (talk) 00:14, 21 January 2023 (UTC)
Personally, ever since I was active around 2014. I've been always in and out of Saloon Bar. I prefer mainspace talk pages over Saloon Bar. But it's just preference. From bloc log, I do tease people who post regularly there though. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 01:00, 21 January 2023 (UTC)
"Questionable shits." Now that's some interesting rhetoric. You don't have to call me out amigo. I've always been out. Ariel31459 (talk) 02:17, 21 January 2023 (UTC)
hmm. I don’t recall explicitly naming you? - Only Sort of Dumb (talk) 03:19, 21 January 2023 (UTC)
Then I apologize for that. Every day is a new day for me. That happens when you get past 50, I think. Ariel31459 (talk) 03:25, 21 January 2023 (UTC)
