Would care for some goat? Or perhaps some unholy Fig Newtons? ThunderkatzHo! 12:42, 27 June 2008 (EDT)

I don't know what the deal is with goats around here, but I'll take that Fig Newton before I hit the highway. Marty 12:51, 27 June 2008 (EDT)
Hi. And welcome.At some point in the past we adopted the goat as our mascot. Some other special usages may be found here: here :-) --Bobbing up 13:01, 27 June 2008 (EDT)

Conservapedia OpenSearch plugin for Firefox[edit]

Hi Marty. It looks like a thing of some beauty. I know what a Firefox search plugin is (or I think I do - it adds itself to the search engines in the top right?) but how do I make this work?--Bobbing up 13:16, 27 June 2008 (EDT)

On Firefox 3 on Linux, you can just copy the XML ("edit" the page, copy-and-paste everything out of the edit box) into a file called conservapedia.xml in the directory ~/.mozilla/firefox/hsomething.default/searchplugins/. I'm not sure where it needs to go on Windows, but I would guess that the path has "searchplugins" in it.
If you click the drop-down in Firefox while browsing Conservapedia [or RW], you'll see "Add Conservapedia [or RW] (English)" as one of the options. (This is something MediaWiki provides by default.) Clicking that will put a file called conservapedia-english.xml in the proper location, and then you can go find it and replace its contents with my version.
Warning: Conservapedia's default "Add Conservapedia (English)" will give you a slightly malformed plugin. The <os:Image> tag is supposed to contain a base64-encoded PNG file, but Conservapedia's actually contains a base64-encoded HTML page! This seems to heartily confuse Firefox's "Manage Search Engines..." dialog. But my version contains a proper PNG icon, so it's fine. Marty 22:49, 27 June 2008 (EDT)
Ahhh Cool. Thanks for that.--Bobbing up 02:34, 28 June 2008 (EDT)

Moar homosexuality debate![edit]

Thanks for resurrecting the debate page. CorryMom signed me up for the army, just because the fat man dared her to. 17:09, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

Heh. Do you guys want to continue the debate over here? :) Or do you think it would be more elegant to spam copies of the debate, under different titles, all over Conservapedia? --Marty 17:13, 29 October 2008 (EDT)
I felt tempted to go place delete tags on every debate and essay, but I didn't. This was clearly a double reverse rearguard. CorryMom signed me up for the army, just because the fat man dared her to. 17:16, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

I have protected User:Marty/Debate:Do we put enough emphasis on homosexuality and made a copy at Conservapedia:Debate:Do we put enough emphasis on homosexuality in hopes that it will draw conservative moths to the flame that is Rat ionalWiki. :) --Marty
