BrainMop.png As a confirmed mustard jar for taking on this job as a Sysop on RationalWiki: I pledge to only block users if they ask for it, or insert unfunny vandalism.
I furthermore pledge that if I indulge in secret private conversations about you, we will make a formal report to the mob. Is that all?
If you impugn my motives without warrant, or challenge my "AUTHORITY", er, there is nothing I can or will do.

Linx and Lamb[edit]

Linx and Lamb are Nazis. I don't use the term lightly.

We know. A lot of vandals here spam mentions of them while they're active. It's their calling card.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs 17:55, 11 May 2008 (EDT)

Nazi trolls[edit]

How Liberapedia dealt with Nazi trols. You could learn from Liberapedia.Proxima Centauri 18:11, 11 May 2008 (EDT)

Thanks Barbara. I was in need of a good chuckle.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs 18:14, 11 May 2008 (EDT)
Interesting. NightFlareSpeak, mortal 18:15, 11 May 2008 (EDT)
Hmmm, thanks for the corroboration of my guess, 85. PC, "learn" from that? We just delete their crap. When we bother, we can unleash some pretty high-powered scathe here. humanUser talk:Human 18:59, 11 May 2008 (EDT)
PS, we also don't write in a series of short declarative poorly punctuated sentences. Writing in a series of short declarative sentences makes for very abrupt reading. So does repeating ideas in each short declarative sentence. Writing should be better. Better writing helps show that Nazis aren't masters of anything. Nazis aren't masters of anything. Especially Liberapedia. Liberapedia are the masters of the Nazi trolls. Nazi trolls are bad people. Nazi indoctrinators are very bad people. Liberapedia dealt with Nazi trolls. You could learn from Liberapedia. How to deal with Nazi trolls. All your base are belong to us. humanUser talk:Human 19:05, 11 May 2008 (EDT)

He wanted potentially identifying information to his person removed from his talk page, especially since he's interested in getting involved in the whole anti-MP thing. Since it's quite a way down in the history, I couldn't get rid of it without getting rid of quite a bit of other stuff. Is there an issue with that? --מְתֻרְגְּמָן שְׁלֹום

You did? Well, I suppose it isn't too bad then (I thought it was a joke for Hans Johnson). NightFlareSpeak, mortal 06:04, 13 May 2008 (EDT)


Argh, I'm sorry. That was rather idiotic of me… --Linus(plot evil tech) 16:28, 29 May 2008 (EDT)

You win an award for highly creative wandalism against Essay:Illegal Immigrants. I haven't yet figured out precisely what the award is, but you've definitely won it. --AKjeldsenPotential fundamentalist! 16:57, 7 June 2008 (EDT)

I noticed I got blocked for three seconds due to that little box at the top of my User Page. Ah well, as long as it is all in good fun, eh NightFlare? =D Javascap 20:06, 10 July 2008 (EDT)

Heh, I've always wanted to do that (on the recent changes page) but never though of something worth linking to the message. Didn't know that log-out page existed. NightFlareStill doesn't have a (nonstub) RWW article. 20:41, 10 July 2008 (EDT)
Of course it exists... you go to it every time you log out. I figured out how to get the link to work by looking under the "Special" pages on Uncyclopedia, and found USERLOGOUT on it... and as such copied it into Wikipedia (the stuffy admins didn't like it >_<) and here, where it is apparently tolerated (3 second block aside!) Javascap 20:44, 10 July 2008 (EDT)
Heh, on Uncyclopedia (my pre-RationalWiki haunt), fake message boxes at the top of pages are so common that I grew to consider them cheap and overused. But here, it seems to be a rarity. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 17:18, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

I challenge you to a game of chance[edit]

~ Gloom(is never asleep) 21:29, 31 July 2008 (EDT)

Tell me more about these unpredictability-based amusements you speak of. NightFlareThis is a talk page. 21:33, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
It is the height of simplicity, mine adversary. Each of us two shall select a work of fictive writings to present. If but one of us presents a volume comprising of fewer than one hundred pages, that fellow be the winner -- but if we both do, we've both of us failed. Do you accept? ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 21:42, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
Isn't that just the Prisoner's Dilemma, played with antique "reading devices"? ħumanUser talk:Human 22:33, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
I think I've come up with a version that doesn't work, as well :( ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 22:39, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
*Takes glove off and slaps* NightFlareThis is a talk page. 21:48, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
Very well. We must find a method of revealing our choices at the exact same instant. Thoughts? ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 21:51, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
We are in need of an arbiter, I believe. NightFlareThis is a talk page. 22:05, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
Yes! We shall choose an intermediary, and submit our answers to them in fiendish code. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 22:09, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
If you wish, you may each email me your selections, which I will then reveal here once both are submitted. ħumanUser talk:Human 22:34, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
Super. Must wait and make sure KnightFlair is still online. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 22:39, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
Hmm, an interactive prisoner's dilemma game..that is a good idea. I need to test my theory for how to create "multiplayer" games over a wiki. tmtoulouse nettle 22:40, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
But there's no motivation to choose a long book! You just choose a short one until you win!</drama>
Needs tweaking, is what I mean. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 22:45, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
That's why you need a multi-round prisoner's dilemma game: both cooperate worth x points, one defect one cooperate defect gets 3x cooperate gets 1/3x, both defect each gets 1/2x. tmtoulouse nettle 22:47, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
I don't speak fractal. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 22:49, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
Ready. NightFlareThis is a talk page. 22:59, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
I have submitted my choice. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 23:10, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
I have received the sealed envelope by special courier and placed it in the time-locked vault. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:13, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
CHARGE! NightFlareThis is a talk page. 23:15, 31 July 2008 (EDT)

And the envelopes are sitting side-by-side in the safe. Shall we compare choices, gentlemen fireworks and forces of nature? ħumanUser talk:Human 23:19, 31 July 2008 (EDT)

<childish glee>I am a force of nature...</childish glee>
Go ahead, anyway. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 23:20, 31 July 2008 (EDT)

Round One[edit]

According to the carefully sealed and notarized missives I have withdrawn from the safe at this very moment, which none of the contestants have been able to see, the entries are:

  • Gloomy Chaos: The Importance of Being Earnest (how uncyclopedic!)
  • Flare of the Night: Marry a Conservative (found here)

Let the debate over the scoring begin! ħumanUser talk:Human 23:24, 31 July 2008 (EDT)

We both lose, I believe :) ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 23:26, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
It's all your fault. NightFlareThis is a talk page. 23:29, 31 July 2008 (EDT)

As a devout solipsist, I must inform you that it is you who am a figment of imaginations.
Yes, I am ready. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 23:38, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
Done, how about we play rock-paper-scissors next? NightFlareThis is a talk page. 23:42, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
I choose scissors. Your move. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 23:46, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
Paper zomg i win. NightFlareThis is a talk page. 23:47, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
Wrong! I secretly chose scissors made of rock! So... ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 23:48, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
And I secretely chose paper made of scissors. NightFlareThis is a talk page. 23:50, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
So, where are our deathmatch's results? NightFlareThis is a talk page. 00:00, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
Only the roman candle has thus far submitted its second round choice.... ħumanUser talk:Human 00:42, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
Oh, sorry. I didn't know we were playing another round. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 00:46, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
PS, which one of you figments sent me an email about "improoving [my] girth"? ħumanUser talk:Human 00:43, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
I don't want to know. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 00:46, 1 August 2008 (EDT)

Round Two[edit]

I have sent my entry. En garde. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 00:51, 1 August 2008 (EDT)

I have several crumpled up, variously stained bits of paper being handed to me by decrepit characters... and they read:
  • Some conflagrant offered this: "The Pet Goat, which presumably has less than 100 pages."
  • Anetohr chaotic contribution reads: "I chooses "À la recherche du temps perdu" by Marcel Proust. New translation, of course. Would you like some tea?"
Gentlemen and entities, start your scoring! ħumanUser talk:Human 00:59, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
I lose! And epickly so! Yeah! ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 01:03, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
Let Round Three commence, unless there are to be discussions regarding improoving the rulz. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:13, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
Lay on, MacGruff. I have submitted my... submission. ~ Gloom(is never asleep) 01:17, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
I just sent you a very important email. NightFlareThis is a talk page. 18:34, 1 August 2008 (EDT)

Round Three[edit]

And the keeper of the seekrits ambles back in from "somewhere" with the contents of the envelopes:

  • K*A*O*S picks: I choosen the word "post". (may have been impaired)
  • Fight'n'Lair chimes in with: "The Importance of Being Earnest" of course. Of course.

Let the scoring be updated and on to Round Four! ħumanUser talk:Human 18:58, 1 August 2008 (EDT)

Natural Logarithm[edit]

What got erased from the natural logarithm page were a few quick proofs of the basic properties of log(x). For example, the proof that log(xy) = log(x)+log(y).--Mathoreilly 00:30, 24 August 2008 (EDT)

The same think happened to me... Short version of what you're wondering... Take all that, and create a second signature subpage as a template, that way, all you'll have is a short link that look like this {{User:SirChuckB/signature}} there are links to my signature pages on my userpage if you want something to look off of SirChuckBDMorris for new Jinx! 11:40, 29 September 2008 (EDT)

Community Standards[edit]

In an effort to update our sometimes too-vague and too-often ignored existing Community Standards, I drafted a possible update of them. The draft can be found here. I invite you, and the rest of the site, to discuss this important issue. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:13, 9 January 2009 (EST)
