Wow[edit]

What a cursed userbox section. Oxyaena Harass 18:06, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

Ok commie Iwillprobablygetbanned (talk to me!) 20:06, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
What’s cursed about it? None of those userboxes are even halfway controversial. I actually have most of them on my page too. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 19:59, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
I think that you're pretty safe ignoring it - it's just Oxy being Oxy. Scream!! (talk) 20:07, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
It's because this user isn't supporting Communism, like Oxy does. Gunther1987 (talk) 20:15, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
Oh no, the dreaded C word! Oxyaena Harass 11:55, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
I'm going to guess it's the formatting that's complete whack. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 15:39, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
Every single time I see a userbox farm it reminds me of MySpace and Geocities. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 16:11, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

Auto-patrolled[edit]

Because of your edits to and time on the wiki, Autopatrolled has been added to your user rights. This lets you bypass most of the abuse filters, bypass the CAPTCHA, and edit more frequently. If you have questions, bleat ask away.

We hope you enjoy your newfound ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ — and these external tools:

  • Rbutr shows user-submitted rebuttals to your current webpage.
  • Google Scholar Button (Chrome, Firefox) searches your highlighted text in Google Scholar. Easily check academic citations!
  • web.archive.org and archive.is can save permanent copies of webpages. Never lose a crank website or racist Tweet ever again! Fowler (talk) 12:46, 27 August 2020 (UTC)

Userpage categories[edit]

Remove the categories that suggest you are a userbox.--Delibirda (talk) 11:05, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

How? Iwillprobablygetbanned (Talk to me!) 17:52, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
Edit the page and remove the two categories. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 17:53, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
Can‘t someone else do this? It didn‘t work. (My page isn‘t locked.) Iwillprobablygetbanned (Talk to me!) 17:56, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
Just edit your user page. Highlight the text of the categories and backspace to get rid of them. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 18:00, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
To be honest I just looked and I couldn't see an option to remove it on the userpage. I think the category is on the userbox itself, and appears here when the userbox is put on the page. --RWRW (talk) 18:53, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

You didn't have to upload that picture[edit]

We've got it here already. Spud (talk) 13:40, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

Grammatical error[edit]

You made a grammatical error in your German userbox. Feel free to remove this section once you have fixed it.The 𝗦𝗾𝗿𝘁-𝟭 talk stalk 05:42, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

Where? Iwillprobablygetbanned (Reply) 08:16, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
He's probably refering to "This user speaks fluently German". It should be either "fluent German" or "German fluently" to be grammatically correct. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 09:34, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

Sysop[edit]

Because of your edits to and time on the wiki, wizard Sysop has been added to your user rights. Feel free to let your newfound ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ course through your veins. Once the high wears off, see RationalWiki:Sysop guide for more information. If you have questions, bleat ask away. — ElectrosPardon? 16:31, 5 December 2020 (UTC)

Good work, but your name has been a disappointment since there has been no reason — as yet — to ban you. Bongolian (talk) 18:35, 5 December 2020 (UTC)
@Bongolian I want to change my name, but how is this possible? Iwillprobablygetbanned (Reply) 18:25, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
The normal procedure is to request the change here: RationalWiki:Requests to change username, specifying your desired new name, and optionally the reason for the change. Bongolian (talk) 18:30, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

User page protection[edit]

I noticed you protected your user page to administrator level, which is of course fine. I'm a bit baffled about the "excessive vandalism" reason though, since as far as I can see from the page history, only you have ever edited it. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 15:22, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, it wasn‘t on purpose (exzessive vandalism) Iwillprobablygetbanned (Reply) 18:13, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

Do you live under a bridge and collect money from people who wish to cross said bridge?[edit]

Just asking questions Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 19:42, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

You mean like the other type of "troll"? --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my experiments 20:04, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
wdym? I‘m just curious. Iwillprobablygetbanned (Reply) 20:14, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
I mean what CircularReasoning suggests. Your random questions about peoples nationalities. You asking whether Trent is active. You could have checked his contributions to find out that he has a grand amount of 12 edits this year. Which is 3 more than he had last year, so I guess it's relatively active of him. Even if basically all of it relates to his role as operations manager.
You are behaving very strangely, unless the point of that strange behavior is to annoy us. In which case, congratulations! Mission accomplished. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 20:29, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
What strange behaviour? (Except from the nationalities part) Iwillprobablygetbanned (Reply) 07:09, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Sorry I got a bit antsy last night, too much whisky and beer. Anyway, mostly it was just about the randomness of your talk page questions in general. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 07:19, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

Eine Herausforderung für einen Sprachblick[edit]

Also willst du das machen? Sprichst du nur Deutsch mit mir? Lass uns gehen, Kumpel! Ich werde nur als Antwort Finnisch sprechen. Mal sehen, wer zuerst aufgibt.

Protecting talk pages and deleting comments[edit]

Listen, talk pages are supposed to be community property. You're allowed to delete or collapse "vile comments" or trolling. If there's excessive problem with your talk page being trolled, you can protect it temporarily (π days or at most π weeks), but don't stop BoN's or new users permanently from commenting here. Also, I don't think those comments you deleted were vile enough to warrant that. Collapse maybe, but you're getting a bit too excessive in the use of your goat given mop. I'll let you undo the damage yourself, but I recommend you do so and consider your acts a bit more carefully in future. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:33, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

Ok, aber solltest du nicht Finnisch reden? Kevlarstar and his dog (Woof!) 18:34, 13 December 2020 (UTC)
@Knight Commander Gut, die Diskussionsseite ist für alle offen und der User ist nicht meht geblockt. Kevlarstar and his dog (Woof!) 18:38, 13 December 2020 (UTC)
Hyvä. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:40, 13 December 2020 (UTC)
(EC) Ajattelin antaa sinulle mahdollisuuden muuttaa mielesi saksanpuhumisen suhteen. Mutta jos aiot pitää kiinni aiemmasta uhkauksestasi puhua vain saksaa minulle, niin käyhän tämä kahdenkeskisissä keskusteluissa. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:39, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

Unblocking GR~2020[edit]

He was coop-banned. I've reverted it. Don't unblock him again without trying to make an appeal. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 13:52, 21 December 2020 (UTC)

@Sirius Sorry, didn‘t know that. Kevlarstar and his dog (Woof!) 14:27, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
No problemo. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 14:28, 21 December 2020 (UTC)

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!
You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Somebody just wants to let you know you did something silly.

If you had seen that editor's contribs and their talkpages, you would've seen that this user was only a drive-by prudish, holier-than-thou concern troll who was obsessed with lecturing us on how evil and perverted we are for not agreeing 100% with his well-meaning but low-quality and excessively remove-happy edits on some of our less-than-well-written crime related articles. I wanted to let you know that I have just promoted TSRXD2 to not-autpatrolled so if he ever returns to shit on our site, his easily-revertible edits will be unpatrolled and thus easier to notice. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my experiments 22:42, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

Sir!!![edit]

How dare you? how VERY dare you? HOW the EFF dare you ... steal my block reason; to whit: "being a twat"?

I have little choice but to challenge you to a duel at dawn on the morrow. The choice of weapons is obviously yours but I would recommend flounders (or haddock should none be available) at thirty paces. Scream!! (talk) 20:57, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

Yes, I'm bored. Scream!! (talk) 20:59, 31 December 2020 (UTC)
No, I only changed the block from infinite to 3 days, because I thought infinite is too excessive. Kevlarstar and his dog (Woof!) 22:20, 31 December 2020 (UTC)
Kevlarstar, before you shorten infinite bans of clearly renamed users, maybe check the User rename log. You would have found that he was originally called "L h8 Ñiggers", so clearly not a desirable editor. Protip: Anyone with a poot in their username, tends to be renamed. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 23:38, 31 December 2020 (UTC)
Also, I'm pretty sure he's another stinky sock of banned User:Mikemikev or Michael Coombs. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 23:41, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

For trying to edit MM's userpage[edit]

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!

Don't take this too seriously. Somebody just wants to let you know you did something silly.

While well-meaning, we don't edit the pages of other users- unless they're foul or spammy ones, for which we have a nuke-and-block-on-sight policy. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my experiments 08:18, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Template:User Communist[edit]

Any reason you're reverting to the revision that misuses Cyrillic? I find it a problem to misuse Cyrillic. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 00:05, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

I think he's doing it as a throwback to when, back when we had a lot of Russian users who created accounts whose usernames were written in Cyrillic script even here on the English project, and even some of the non-Russian/other former Soviet country-nationality ones would misuse Cyrillic letters that resemble Latin ones in their names as a running gag. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my experiments 02:21, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
@LeftyGreenMario Most people don‘t know Cyrillic. The other one is more obvious. Kevlarstar and his dog (Woof!) 07:30, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
I don't think it's a "throwback", I think it's a misunderstanding of how Cyrillic is used and pronounced. It might be "more" obvious, but there's a lot of times people misuse the Cyrillic thinking it's the actual thing and to mimic Russian propaganda. Perhaps it's fine for Russian users to intentionally misuse, but I find it a problem to abuse the Cyrillic to do this especially when the practice is widespread and criticized, and some may find it cliche, stereotyped, cultural appropriation, promoting ignorance, disrespectful to the language etc. See here, here, and here's a subreddit. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 21:46, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
