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: $4200Goal: $6000

More bluntly, you need to demonstrate that you're not a troll. Your few mainspace edits are shit, and your User page is trollish. Bongolian (talk) 04:57, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Vandal bin[edit]

Hello, I have vandal binned you for the ludicrous amount of nominations you did in a span of a very short time (a lot of them I feel aren't honestly motivated), and I feel like you did this only to be disruptive. If you want further dispute, discuss at the chicken coop. Thank you for your time. Π‘aΠ±yΠ›uigiOΠ½Π€ire(T|C) 01:22, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

I have no issue with the binning, however, I can see how other user may see it as going a bit overboard.β€”β™₯CheeseburgerPlateβ™₯ Spinning-Burger.gif (talk β€’ stalk) 01:24, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
Never mind, the first topic of the talkpage shows that this user has a history of trolling.β€”β™₯CheeseburgerPlateβ™₯ Spinning-Burger.gif (talk β€’ stalk) 01:25, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
Additionally, I don't think honest people would nominate editors who haven't been active in years for a mod position. Π‘aΠ±yΠ›uigiOΠ½Π€ire(T|C) 01:28, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
I don't think anyone with a brain would nominate PB or MC, regardless of whether they were active or not. Comrade GC (talk) 01:33, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
MC was a mod in the past. It's Jenn (talk) 01:35, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
MC was a self admitted blatant troll who abused his power. Fuck him. Comrade GC (talk) 01:36, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
MC was sometimes annoying, but he sometimes made the site more interesting. This authoritarian way of handling things is exactly why I want to see some old guard step up to the plate to be moderators. It's Jenn (talk) 01:55, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Your edit summary:

With all due respect, fuck you

and @GrammarCommie's comment:

Fuck him.

you cannot talk about our editors like that. Rationalwiki is a place for civil discussion. β€”ClickerClock (talk) 02:01, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
This user has also accused me of being a sockpuppet of LeftyGreenMario too. This user is not assuming good faith. Π‘aΠ±yΠ›uigiOΠ½Π€ire(T|C) 02:03, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
@It's Jenn please address this. Again, Rationalwiki is not for petty fights. β€”ClickerClock (talk) 02:04, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
@ClickerClock You are correct, apologies for my outburst. Comrade GC (talk) 02:09, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
I'm sorry. It's just upsetting the way these people have been treating me. Please forgive me for the foul attitude. It's Jenn (talk) 02:11, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
It's okay you two. Th hug.gif β€”ClickerClock (talk) 02:12, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Apologies[edit]

I'm sorry for suspecting you were Grawp. You don't really seem malicious like him, so I'm kind of sure you two aren't the same. Just do some good edits and I'll try and get you unbinned. Once again, sorry. Also, Happy New Year. RoninMacbeth (talk) 05:56, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, Happy New Year. We're very sorry for all this inconvenience this is for you. I hope this mess gets cleared up, all right? --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 08:29, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Advice[edit]

@It's Jenn Since you were nominating 19 people at once, my advice would be to go to the talk page before making any nominations, and ask if anyone would object to you doing this. Since you're new, and haven't really established yourself yet, I hope you can see how your actions can be interpreted as deliberately disruptive from our point of view. It certainly didn't help that many of the people you nominated have been inactive for a long time. Please note that this doesn't mean I think you should be punished for your actions, but that good communication is helpful for everybody. CowHouse (talk) 15:43, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

I don't see the harm in nominating loads of people for modship, I suspect that it wasn't done in good faith (sorry if I'm wrong) but it didn't really make any difference to anything. If you genuinely believe someone is a good candidate for modship, just nominate them, if it's a bad choice they'll say no or just won't win. Christopher (talk) 15:52, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
I'm not saying there was any harm in it, but it did result in a vandal binning. In order to avoid this, my suggestion is to be careful not to appear trollish if you're a new user, especially since multiple people had already told J. Zoia that they were acting like a troll. CowHouse (talk) 16:07, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
Or just start afresh with a new account not connected to your (supposedly, I still have my doubts about whether or not you're a troll) real name. There will always be people who suspect that you're a troll if you stick with this account. Christopher (talk) 16:53, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Endorsements[edit]

I think you accidentally anti-endorsed Bigs. CowHouse (talk) 01:46, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, you don't say that someone would make a good mod in an anti-endorsement. π”Šπ”¬π”žπ”±-π”ˆπ”ͺ𝔭𝔒𝔯𝔬𝔯 𝔅𝔦𝔀𝔰 (𝔴𝔬𝔯𝔑𝔰 𝔬𝔣 𝔴𝔦𝔰𝔑𝔬π”ͺ/π”žπ” π”₯𝔦𝔒𝔳𝔒π”ͺ𝔒𝔫𝔱𝔰) 01:57, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Alyssa Bryant[edit]

If I may ask, just why did you switch accounts? RoninMacbeth (talk) 23:50, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

I forgot the log in to that account ages ago. I actually wanted to vote in last election, but I didn't know the password to my account, and I couldn't just create a new one (rest assured, I would not have voted for Avenger). I want to thank you, @LeftyGreenMario, @Christopher, and @CowHouse for being nice to me. Hugs. All four of you plus @Rationalzombie94, @JoaquΓ­n MartΓ­nez, @RobSmith, and/or @Koidevelopment should be moderators or alternate moderators. I'm sorry if I caused trouble. J. Zoia (talk) 03:17, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
@J. Zoia I'm not active enough to be a mod. Also saying that nobs should be made mod is heeeeeellllaaaaa sus. Koi "dammit Koi stop making such long sigs!" development 20:45, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
