Sorry to bother you...[edit]

Can I ask you to rename me "Alexa" and leave off the "J"? (P.S.) The "new messages" on your talk page logged me out, second, how did you get the font on this page? AlexaJ 23:23, 18 September 2008 (EDT)

AlexaJ, soon to be Alexa, I can indeed rename you. In answer to your P.S, the "new messsages" box is a prank that I set up. Gotcha =). Second, to get this text, I used <font color="black" face="Monotype Corsiva" size = "3"> Just wait while I rename you. JÁνąŞ₡Ωp Talk to ME BAN SOMEONE!The fire mowse.gif MOWSE!

Not cool[edit]

Why did you delete my user page? http://rationalwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&type=&user=&page=User%3ABeastmasterGeneral BeastmasterGeneral 09:03, 19 September 2008 (EDT)

Hm? Oh crap O_O. Well, I suppose the short story would be this, I was on a mop and dust spree cleaning up RW, and I suppose I accidentally wiped your page. It did say in the edit summary "Someone delete this page please" so... I followed through. Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!

OOB[edit]

Okay, lets talk, whats the evidence? I am intrigued because you brought it up in terms of a cognitive psych class. tmtoulouse 14:50, 22 September 2008 (EDT)

winning a debate with a creationist[edit]

I moved your winning a debate with a creationist thingy to the essay namespace. Could you delete the redirect when you're ready? Cheers. --JeevesMkII 10:31, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

Will do, just adding a fre touches before I remove it. Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!

Announcement[edit]

Allow me to be the first to congratulate you on your announcement. Welcome to the Dark Side, oh newly deconverted one! CSimpacted with knowledge 22:03, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

I would think that, naturally, in the complete absence of a "light side" to compare to the "dark side" it would be more of a "semi-gray side"? Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!

I struggled for many years with how to present my beliefs to the outside world, particularly family. I started by slowly introducing concept of skepticism into my conversations with them, sometime not about religion at all. Once they were used to thinking about my general skepticism towards paranormal, mysticism and general spirituality the revelation of atheism wasn't so harsh for them to take.

Beyond my family the whole "outside" world presents a conundrum. The easiest thing to do to get along is just not talk about it at all, even if pressed. If really pressed I used to only admit to a form of agnosticism. It was just easier than the debate or whatever you want to call it that ensues in day to day encounters. I enjoy structured debate on my own time. Hence the internet, it is great. But I really do not feel like getting into a debate with my barber or some guy at a bar.

With in the last 1-2 years though I have started to shift form that perspective. It is more about wanting to stand up and demonstrate to the world that atheism is far more common than they are led to believe. I am much more open about it, and more willing to engage in conversation about it. It works great in Canada, back home though in the States it has been a mixed result. --Tmtoulouse 23:38, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Thanks for the advice, Tmtoulouse. If I may point out, I generally don't debate my barber, as such a debate can leave you in a somewhat compromised posistion... Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!
Hm. Interesting, Tmtoulouse. I'm kind of surprised you chose to share this story so out of the blue. I would've liked to have heard it earlier; I enjoy hearing such things. Don't take that the wrong way. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 23:57, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

I can haz powerz back now plz? DickTurpis 22:44, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

I was about to give them back to you when I finished banhammering everyone... but you already went to Kels, so... meh. Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!
Yes Kels is better person than U. And iz grrl too. DickTurpis 23:25, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
And haz no weird fonts and floating boxen. DickTurpis 23:25, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Would you like me to create a floating box that follows you eveywhere? Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!
I says "Thanx but no thanx on that box to nowhere." DickTurpis 23:28, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Hehe he. Fair enough. By the way, your complaint about the font has been observed, and is now a vivid colour of Green. Enjoy =) Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!

Intestinal blockages[edit]

You do realize I already blocked all sysops in alphabetical (and ascending numerical, by minutes) order a few months ago, yes? Yer stealin' my bit! --Kels 23:04, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Deconversion[edit]

Do your Real Life friends and family know yet? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 23:31, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Nope, none of them yet. I am planning on telling them around Thanksgiving, but I don't think they will take it lightly. My closest friend does know, and as does my roommate, but aside from that, nobody else. Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!

Random words[edit]

[1] You know, we also have a template:location to say things like "about". Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 00:58, 28 September 2008 (EDT)

And I am tickled pink that you like my random word templates. : ) Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 00:58, 28 September 2008 (EDT)

And I am glad to see you like the userbox I made with the templates you made =). I did take a look at the location template, and I honestly cannot think of a way to squeeze it in without the userbox becoming shoddily long. (While it is random, every now and then I do get a string of words that extend the userbox quite a bit. I am thinking of making "User Insane2", which would have "location". Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!

Moar deconversion[edit]

You said on my talk page, "Well, Human, I have just joined the ranks of atheists... now how do I manage this thing? Any hints or words of advice from an experienced atheist?" In reality you're on your own. We don't have a dogma, or rules, we only have in common that we don't believe in any gods. How we move beyond the time when we make that known to ourselves is pretty much a personal process. For me, I still enjoy stuff that can't be explained - but I don't think I have an explanation for it. Does that make any sense?

Like, let's say for the silly, I hear rocks or trees talking to me. To me, that is personal, and not part of "how the world works". In other words, it's my own trip, and there is now god or gods behind it, it's just a "wow" experience. I don't try to explain it in supernatural ways, mostly I think it's just part of being a chunk of meat.

Do I worry about "death" or other things like that? No, I just hope that my life is worth living, and that I enjoy of it what I can. Then the worms eat me ;)

Any more questions I will gladly mislead you with answers for. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:21, 28 September 2008 (EDT)

Your sig[edit]

I know the flashing mowse is cool and all, but it irritates the hell out of me on talk pages where you have commented several times. No complaint about your comments, but that fucking flashing mowse gets on my last fucking nerve. No offense intended with my flashy language ;) ħumanUser talk:Human 23:57, 28 September 2008 (EDT)

Dear Human, as per your suggestion, I have gathered that you do not see enough of the mowse to have learned to love him. Hence, he is taking a prominant space on my user talk page. Look at him go!!! Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!

Deletion[edit]

Could you tell me why you deleted my articles? They did not exist so I created them. Thanks.--Herbert the Hamster 17:48, 3 December 2008 (EST)

I deleted the articles as they had little to do with our mission statement in this wiki. We are not wikipedia, so for the most part, we stick to science and politics. You can find more information in the Newcomers Guide. Hope this helps. Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!

Hello Javascap. Thank you for pointing out the guide, it explains many things. It would have been nice if somebody had pointed it out before removing my articles. I'm still not sure why you used the vandal brake on me though. I'm not looking for a fight, I'd just like to understand the rules. Could you also explain why you (or somebody) deleted, for example, "Chlorophyll"? It was only a stub, but I would have expanded it if you'd asked. I see there is an article "carbon".--Herbert the Hamster 03:30, 4 December 2008 (EST)
I do deeply apologise for my mistake in vandal breaking you (probabally had something to do with my remarkable lack of sleep that day, so I jumped the gun on the vandal break. As for the Chlorophyll, I do not know if I deleted that... let me check that out, be right back. Javasca₧ and his Sword of Wiki-Editing!

I'm pleased you're impressed. On the 8th of July last year Radioactive afikomen was less impressed. I don't want unpleasantness that I feel happens here to follow me. I don't suppose you can give any guarantee individually or collectively that it won't. If you can give a guarantee I would be happy for a link but I fear that's impossible. It's not personal.

'Crats[edit]

Could you ease up on the 'crats a bit? We rarely hand these out. Gauss was fine but Nate River's was a complete Wiki Noob when he came and he has been here less than 3 months. If we make everyone a 'crat it could do a lot more damage than sysops. - User 23:44, 11 February 2009 (EST)

Fair enough, makes sense. I had no other intentions for any further demotions, just those two. I do realise River was a wiki noob, but I think he is ready for Cratship. And I do understand that 'crats can do more damage. I guess "don't worry, you have a good point" is the default response here. ĴάΛäšςǍ₰ edits from 1.231.42.12
No worries. - User 23:48, 11 February 2009 (EST)

Yeah, I am thinking that if we did establish rules on 'Crats, it should follow along the lines of this -
Hangs around enough to know the community, has been here for a while, maybe 6 months (I know River was only here for 3 months, and it seems hypocitical... meh),
Have to have contributed to articles, provided suggestions, and been involved with policies.
They also have to not be too particually emotional, to prevent revenge promotions.
Furthermore, I think a good 'crat should be able to tell between a vandal and a new user (A mistake that I made in the past, and felt awfully guilty about Herbert the Hamster... :(. ĴάΛäšςǍ₰ edits from 1.231.42.12

Embarassing Conservatives[edit]

Your latest addition doesn't seem to make any sense. It seems to assume that the readers of that article will be American Conservatives, which they mostly won't be. Besides that, personally I'd say it's way too snarky. Do we really want another article with a remark that fundamentalists are stupid? I don't anyone is really waiting for that. --GTac 12:10, 16 February 2009 (EST)

The Vandal usergroup doesn't do anything as far as I know, and it's definitely not the same as the vandal bin (Special:Userrights is a core part of MW btw). The bin stores users in a separate table, and I'm flying was in there, but there was a problem with the code that calculated the time elapsed from a user's last edit. I replaced that with code from Vandal brake 2.0, and it looks like it's working now. --  Nx/talk  10:51, 28 March 2009 (EDT)
