There is RussianalWiki if you're worried about anglophone bias. There are some attempts to integrate other languages, but mostly it's just a practical side effect of the fact that not everyone can speak 15 different languages. Scarlet A.pngpathetic 13:24, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Far right, far left and conspiracy theories[edit]

Someone has said something on the lines of "The ends of the political spectrum bend and the far right meets the far left in the land of "batshit insane"." :) Otherwise, I've noticed that most conspiracy theorists can be better described as "anti-establishment" than with the conventional left/right labels. Paranoia is another common trait.--ZooGuard (talk) 18:37, 19 March 2012 (UTC)


ohhhh I see you are adding boxes and this is distracting. I have been trying to think up more boxes because I am bored and people seem to really like fighting and not writing cool things for me to get inspired by lately. Got any ideas? ±Knightoftldrsig.pngKnightOfTL;DRyeah, well you fight like a cow! 00:51, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you mean. Are you being sarcastic? I have not created any userboxen, if that is what you are referring to. Rand0 (talk) 00:58, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
No, I'm serious. I was thinking of making some more boxes and was wondering if you had ideas. ._. ±Knightoftldrsig.pngKnightOfTL;DRfree guybrush threepwood! no new taxes! down with porcelain! 01:01, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I see what you are telling me. I had an idea the other day, but I don't remember it. Let me get back to you. Rand0 (talk) 03:01, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

When you start an article...[edit]

..the first mention of the subject should be in bold. More importantly, you need to make sure that germanne terms in the article are wiki-linked to the relative articles, and that there are links from other articles going in to the new article. Thanks!

On, it chief! Rand0 (talk) 20:44, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

You're doing good work.[edit]

Seriously, those are some solid articles. That said, you have a tendency to use a lot of passive voice--"It is often argued that..." and to say things like "many people believe that...", which really weakens the thrust of what you're trying to say. Get that under control and your articles will be that much sharper...

Thanks for the compliment, and thanks for the constructive criticism. I appreciate it! Rand0 (talk) 22:03, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

Stop it[edit]

"White house mouthpieces"? Really? We already have a category for "pundits" who are basically partisans already so stop wasting my time with this shit just because these liberals aren't libertarian enough for you. Just label them as "pundits" and we have other categories for this I'm sure. Now fucking stop it you haven't even created the goddamn category page so the red makes us look cheap too.ClothCoat (talk) 08:07, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Normally my policy is be nice or be ignored, but I'm in a generous mood today. I don't mean "White House mouthpieces" in a necessarily partisan way. In fact, I intended to go through the articles for the fuckfaces at fox news and elsewhere and tag them with the category "White House mouthpieces" for being exactly that during the Bush administration. "White House mouthpieces" is a neutral category, potentially. If Jill Stein of the Green Party, who happened to be the presidential candidate I supported in 2012 had actually won that election and made all the policies I wanted and made none that I disagreed with and some pundit was constantly taking her side, I would still be likely to tag that pundit with "White House mouthpieces."
