Would you be able to write a Javascript script that would create popup window that would appear once per visitor (either once per computer or IP address)? I'd like to be able to make windows that can pop up to give users information, but without making them pop up every single time they go to a new page. Since I might move webhosts, it would be good to have a notice so people can expect that the site might go down, and where they can go if it's down for an extended period. –Nazis are bad and I don't like them 01:25, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Yes, but it would have to wait until I get a few coding projects out the door in the next few weeks. If you want to take a run at it yourself, this works fine out of the box. You could also fiddle with this code and make it a modal. You'll use a cookie on the user's computer. You can set it to expire whenever you wish. But what you're describing is totally obnoxious since you can easily set up a landing page with updated information and redirects. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 03:12, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Poe? I think not.[edit]

If Poe, they're incredibly good at staying in character. Too clueless and literal-minded. Also check the publicly available info on IP location. Could be a spoof, but I doubt it. Unique pinion (talk) 21:50, 25 April 2013 (UTC)


For some reason, I can't get it up with SSH. I tried setting the SSH key path and making a new key, but some reason, it's not working. Google Code uses .netrc, so that's why I was able to do it before. –Nazis are bad and I don't like them Deadhorse.gif 21:33, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Check it out. Also, your animated GIF is horrible. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 21:43, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

What's this about again? Did you want me to write a stylesheet or something? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 22:42, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
I thought you were interested in working on the Vector skins. You can work on the CSS page for it if you want. I'm going to start several variations for different color styles, since there's not a lot of Vector customizations out there. –Inquisitor Ehrenstein (Talk | Contribs | Mikal's ragebox) 02:24, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
There's no stylesheet in the repo. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 03:11, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

An Email[edit]

...has been sent from me to you. Pdoke2 (talk) 23:09, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

You don't have to post here. I pretty much respond to all emails, including yours. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:06, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

What the hell[edit]

He made a single word edit, fucking deal with it. Bin him if you think he's a vandal, but it's mostly been non-offensive edits. Not sure what your problem is between this and Brxbrx but you need to lay off. Captain Swing (bringer of nachos) 04:32, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

Have you been fucking off enough lately? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 13:24, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

Have you been lurking in the Weegee Hallows, lately?--Thrinaxodon (talk) 02:41, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

I don't know what that is. Is it a place where Captain Swing fucks off? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 03:46, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
I'd appreciate it if the locations of where I fucked off were not the topic of conversation thank you very much >_> Captain Swing (bringer of nachos) 03:57, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
It's true. I'm with you on that one. I wish you would fuck off, but I don't want to know where. I certainly won't tell you where I do it. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 04:26, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
Perhaps we got off on a bit of the wrong foot, would you be willing to let bygones be bygones to borrow an old cliche? Captain Swing (bringer of nachos) 04:29, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
Now you're getting it. Sure thing. 15:47, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

freakiest sexual fetishes[edit]

I like toasters and once got my dick caught in one. Acei9 00:31, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

I like frozen chickens and once got my dick caught in one, Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:34, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, that was hilarious. Remember when you called me up and I advised you to defrost the chicken in the oven so your knob could just ease out? Heh, that was a great day. It was handy you coated your dick in marjoram and garlic butter before hand because the stuffing was perfectly seasoned. Acei9 00:44, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
Great Thanksgiving for sure. And those sweet potatoes. ... Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 04:03, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

What did Brx do to earn an indefinite block (along with a threat to desysop anyone undoing the block)? I see nothing in his contribs or logs. SophieWilder 20:17, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

A history of lying about people in order to stir shit and cause the most damage possible in political and organizational discussions from the very beginning of his presence here; failure to integrate; refusal to take responsibility for miserable behavior despite years of pleas from people far more temperate than me going back to nearly day one; trolling; open racism; cheating in the last moderator election despite purporting to be all about order, showing that he intended, yet again to cause unnecessary trouble. He's a bad person. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 20:39, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
all stuff from the past that was dealt with (if not very well) at the time. I see someone who changed his ways. What have you got apart from "I don't like him"? SophieWilder 20:44, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
I'd also kind of like to see some references to this, since I'm not really aware of any of it, and it kind of seems like before you go on a scorched earth campaign, you should probably provide some evidence that this isn't you going "I don't like him, so he's banned"--Token Conservative (talk) 20:55, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
Oh, yes, one block every once in a while is a "scorched earth campaign." MARCUSISEVIL. Jesus, he can unblock himself, and there's 80 gazillionty joke blocks a day. What's the big fucking deal? EVERYONE MUST LUVS EACH OTHER. Where's my beer? Sterilesig.svgtalk 21:55, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Common descent[edit]

Would you like to field the Common descent article? It's "Gold" and I don't feel I have sufficient background in Biology to find better articles. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 15:38, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Sure thing. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 05:46, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you! --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 00:12, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. Updated. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:19, 17 June 2013 (UTC)


Is it possible to make source code between <ref> tags show up as a different color? It makes well-cited sections difficult to read. –Александр(а) Ehrenstein (Talk | Contribs | Ragebox) 23:29, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Sure. I don't know exactly what you're talking about tho. Give me an example of a page with these and I'll write it. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 23:54, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
Do you mean highlighting the text when you're in your edit window? Otherwise \<ref\> tags aren't really real things in the sense that when MediaWiki renders the HTML for a page it's making anchors that link to the references section at the bottom of the page, which it creates dynamically. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:02, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Use WikEd. Turn it on under Preferences > Gadgets. They're grayish. Sterilesig.svgtalk 00:04, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

I'm responsible for nearly half the NSFW images on this site. *bow* Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:07, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
I saw that. I chose not to do anything about it. No one's noticed at its current size. Sterilesig.svgtalk 01:11, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

I'm looking for something that would change the color of the <ref>text in here</ref> tags and the text inside them. That way, it will be easier to see which source code is for the article and which is footnote text. This should be in the edit window BTW. Sorry for not clarifying that before. –Александр(а) Ehrenstein (Talk | Contribs | Ragebox) 03:57, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Below is an example of WikEd. It's sorta what you are looking for. You can learn more about it here. You could also probably use Greasemonkey to change the color if you want, but that seems like a lot of work. Sterilesig.svgtalk 10:45, 17 June 2013 (UTC)


Sterile's solution is pretty good. I couldn't figure the Regex out in the 20 minutes I devoted to it. It's not as trivial as manipulating a CSS selector or counting shit so it's over my head. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 02:58, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
I had a feeling it was going to be too complex. It would have to rely on some sort of regex, as it doesn't have any sort of class or HTML tag to attach to it, since it's just the source text. Thanks though for looking into it. –Meine Ehere heißt Toleranz (Talk | Contribs | Ragebox) 03:02, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
np Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 03:30, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
If I find something that does the same thing or I isolate what parts of the script mentioned here control the ref tags, I'll let you know. I was hoping for something that does just the ref tags, since it looks a little cluttered otherwise; still much better than footnotes in the text though. –Meine Ehere heißt Toleranz (Talk | Contribs | Ragebox) 05:09, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
Huh. I don't find it too cluttered. Sure, it does more than the ref links, but pure markup is always kinda hard to look at. I wish it didn't put in the pictures, but I like that the hyperlinks are a different color and that the headings are more visible. There may be offsite markup editor that is customizable, and there may be a WP project or gadget for other editors, and you may want to look at the preferences there and see if they could be installed here.

What's up[edit]

Fat cunt. I'm in London and flying to Berlin in a few hours to indulge in multiple vices. Acei9 10:24, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Why Toast was blocked[edit]

When she passed, in consultation with her friend real-life "Scream," we decided to block the account because there was concern that somebody else might have access to the account through her laptop. If I knew the way/I would take you home. 13:53, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

I understand wanting to go down that road, but it makes no sense. Why would some random person log on to a random site try using the random account of a deceased person? Susan was a revered member of the community. What does blocking her user account achieve other than sending a crummy symbolic message? But more to the point, I don't care to have a long discussion about this. No offense. If you want to go redo the blocks, go for it. I'll undo them again in two years. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 14:01, 25 June 2013 (UTC)


Hi mate, don't know if I was meant to do something or if I missed the mail, but was I meant to be getting a logon for the dead links app? Tielec01 (talk) 00:28, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Sorry about that dude. I just emailed your login credentials. Thanks for reminding me. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 01:55, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

about your project[edit]

I got remarried in October 2009, so if you need input and that's not to far back, I'd be glad to help. -DinsdaleP (talk) 19:29, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for responding. We're trying to understand the online wedding planning industry. If you guys planned your wedding yourselves and remember what made you suffer in the process, I'd totally like to talk to you. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 21:20, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Protection of my talk page[edit]


While I appreciate the protection you gave to my talk page against constant vandalism, you made it possible only for sysops to edit my talk page and therefore I cannot edit it myself. Maybe change level of protection from "edit=sysop" to "edit=autoconfirmed"? - Vote Markman for a better tomorrow! (talk) 22:52, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Why the vendetta? The Invisible ManI spoke to Him 06:21, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

I'll just email you. It's late. Short version, he voted sockpuppets in the last moderator election, is a racist, a troll, lied about people who did nothing to him to stir up trouble when he got here, contributes nothing of substance, and is a drain on energy when his personality disorder flares up. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 06:48, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
You should just make a presentation at the Saloon Bar. Much more efficient to get everyone to realize the evil of brx all at once--"Shut up, Brx." 13:42, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
You've never once denied these things. Nobody else here has done this kind of stuff. What makes you so different? What's so wrong with that you're forcing yourself on people who don't want you here? Please go. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 14:09, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
Oh my, you've gone Glenn Beck. Well, I've never voted with sockpuppets, I'm not a racist, I'm not a troll, I have never lied about you or other users, and I don't have a personality disorder.
You, on the other hand, have been nursing a very long grudge, and have even threatened to ban and desysop anybody who unblocks me. [1] You're basically attacking me out of the blue. Apparently you think about me at random moments throughout your day and in a surge of anger seek me out to block me, even if I haven't edited in a while (do you have my user page on bookmark or something?)--"Shut up, Brx." 14:30, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
I didn't start this, Brx. You came to RW trolling out of the gate and then started lying about people to stir up discord at a troubled time. I'm not attacking you. That would imply the treatment you get is unjustified, which is stupid. Not even you deny being everything I've said. I'm also not angry. Sure, I loathe you, but the issue here is my concern for RW becoming a more attractive resource. That's not happening if the most reviled editor in 2 years becomes a moderator. Please have the courtesy to leave. Nobody here wants you. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 14:54, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
You are so full of shit--"Shut up, Brx." 15:14, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
Not so much. I make my way by telling the truth, dude. Let's give these people a good look into your character by having Trent tell us all about some of the things you've done. What do you think? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 15:30, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
As a fairly generic, uninvolved editor on here, you come across as the obsessed asshole, Nutty. — (talk to) [æn əˈmɛɹɪkən ˈnaiːɪlɪst] 23:19, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Hey buddy[edit]

I'm back from my hedonism tour of Europe so we should have a skype session. I gotta lot on my plate at the moment (looking for a job, moving house and trying to convince my pregnant wife that letting me go on a four day bender in Melbourne is in her best interests) but lets catch up soon. Say in 24 hours? Acei9 23:08, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Welcome back, fat cunt. I'm working from home tomorrow. Email me and I'll log on. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 23:16, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
Done. I have tales of extreme debauchery for you. Acei9 23:30, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
I'll show you a picture of PsyGremlin's wang. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 23:54, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
I've seen it. Remember I visited him in Johannesburg last year? Yeah, well we fucked in a public bathroom near Nelson Mandela square. Acei9 00:02, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

So hey...[edit]

Yeah, you. Fuck you. Cunt. Fucker. Fuck.


I'm sorry about all the crap today. Sometimes I do stupid shit, and I really try to improve on that. I also get mad about people doing certain things, and I should engage constructively and directly about those things. People putting back a video that I said did not represent my views when I remembered how it started was one of those things. Apparently putting a notice of that worked fine, and maybe I would have figured that out with dealing more constructively. –Александр(а) (Talk | Contribs | Ragebox) 04:57, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Surveying readers[edit]

I'm not really technical, can you write something up the same way you made the DLP App, or would we be better off using a third party? Could we put up some site-wide message like when we do elections, or fundraising, and just link to a new namespace for it? --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 22:47, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

I could but it's stupid when there are cost-effective and extremely super awesome third parties like Slim Surveys that handle all the metrics and analysis. The question is how to reach people to take your surveys. Banners on RW only get through to a fraction of people interested in well-conceived skeptical, pro-science, anti-denialism, etc. material. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 23:36, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
Considering the only feedback we get is from angry bunches of numbers, we could invite them to make their displeasure known through the survey. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 15:19, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

With all the discussion in the Saloon bar this week...[edit]

Has anyone asked to be signed up for the Dead Link App? --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 16:44, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

No. 1 person shortly before the discussion started is the only request since within a week of me announcing the app. Surely you already knew that aside from a very few people who actually follow up on stuff, RWIans typically talk a lot about how to do shit they'll never lift a finger to help with. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 17:11, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
I'm aware of that. I just remember having posted something to the effect of "Look at the sticky at the top and help us" in the past, no one cared then, no point trying, now. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 17:21, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
We will simply have to do some things by fiat and give the finger to ass talkers who don't help. We will figure out how to reward editors and assemble a cabal to just fucking get rid of trolls whatever it takes. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 17:46, 17 July 2013 (UTC)


Thank you for writing the app and spearheading the Dead Link Project. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 18:07, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing. I try to help out here and there. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 21:39, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
It's certainly more than "here and there". --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 00:17, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
Naa, I'm a troll and I don't do anything for RW or the RMF. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:43, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Sometimes people forget thing[edit]

Sometimes this can be embarrassing. It does not entitle you to commit libel against people once you realize it. If someone kills over their political views, it's murder and they're totalitarian for being so intolerant in their views. Jesus. I think I've made it clear how anti murder I am with the one subject I have an interest in.

I don't want to create hostility. I'm not angry. Just point out how I felt. –Александр(а) (Talk | Contribs | Ragebox) 21:43, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Your defense here is revolting. You endorse violence against people expressing views you disagree with. It doesn't matter that you claim to be "anti-murder." That you think that's laudable says something terrible about your moral sense. Please don't post here again. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 21:54, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
No, I do not think that murder is acceptable. To say so is to commit libel. I recommend that you not commit libel against me. –Александр(а) (Talk | Contribs | Ragebox) 21:58, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
Want my address so you can sue me? I don't want to ever see or hear from you again. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 22:04, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Adding domains to the DNS blacklist[edit]

When adding them to the list, I need to make sure that the domain corresponds to a blacklist so that the wiki can access it properly. Would the domains listed here be examples of domains that could be added to the list? –Александр(а) (Talk | Contribs | Ragebox) 19:31, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
