Heya back. And @Brxbrx, yeah I was thinking it could at the very least use gradient edges... --JoeOnSunset (talk) 04:18, 31 May 2011 (UTC)


Pretty turned off by RationalWiki right now. Really was excited to discover it and contribute here. But it seems editors here are really reversion-happy, and not really interested in discussion with the newbies. Even adding a measly missing period at the end of a sentence has been undone, and quickly, by editors who've been around longer--with not even the bother of an summary explanation. :-/ I'll go back to minding my own business, I guess. Maybe this place is just a clique?

Where was your period reverted? At the moment everyone is revert-happy because of the vandalism, so if you were editing as an IP a mistake like that is not unbelievable. Peter mqzp 03:20, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
It was one of my earliest edits but I was signed in, and I had a talk page. Maybe its a lot of "article-owner" syndrome, I dunno. I haven't been around long enough to know, but as a newbie it's not worth trying to swim against the tide. I've been editing on Wikipedia for a long time and haven't had any issue like this, surprising since I'd expect less of that crowd. Anyway.
I have gone through your mainspace contributions and cannot find the edit in question--are you sure it was on this website? Polar Bear in the Jungle Peter Tosh > Bob Marley 05:26, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Somebody objected to this edit, chosing to revert and thus also removing this edit. It appears to be a misunderstanding, and a rather old one at that. Peter mqzp 05:52, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
And obviously not the only thing I was referring to: only the first *example*. You can hand-wave my reaction on this talk-page, but that just seems like more of the same. --JoeOnSunset (talk) 15:17, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
So what can we do to make you happy, Joe? Polar Bear in the Jungle Peter Tosh > Bob Marley 15:23, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Not much, I guess. Like I said, I enjoy the content here and think it's mostly great. I've been reading for some time. Editing on Wikipedia--where I've made fairly small but mostly well-accepted contributions for a number years--I suppose didn't prepare me for editing on the same small level here. (The objected-to edit PeterL refers to was benign humor in an article already full of humor and sarcasm, one of the few I've made beyond grammar and style. That was maybe too soon to jump in that far.) I'm not a controversial editor, so I didn't expect the difficulty of getting through tiny changes here. If reasonable edits of mine (i.e., clearly non-vandalism attempts to contribute) were reverted with at least a summary note, that would go a long way. But as it stands it just seems too contentious for me to join in. And that's fine, but it was disappointing and I felt like posting about it on my talk page I guess. To be honest I certainly did not expect any users to notice. lol. --JoeOnSunset (talk) 15:47, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
