Hey there big stuff! Welcome to RationalWiki! LimpWrist (talk) 01:23, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Hey, welcome to the dollhouse! You and I discovered this site in similar ways - I actually found my way here after I was immediately banned from CP literally within seconds of joining, before making even a single edit. Anyway, here's hoping you enjoy it here. We try to be as awesome as possible. I Eat Glue (talk) 18:11, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

I had the same problem. I made myself a nice account with good intentions, i.e. no plans to vandalise or argue in talk pages, yet was banned before I could make a single edit. My only consolation is that yet another block of IPs got blocked. BTW, the sysop thing normally happens after you've demonstrated that you're not here to block up the toilet and steal all of the tea. Just depends on a crat wandering past and noticing. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 23:12, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
Ah I see. Is there like an RFA here? BigGuy (talk) 23:13, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm not aware of any formal process. I suppose popping a message on a crat's page, or posting in the Saloon Bar would probably do the job. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 23:19, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
Maybe some other time. I'm scared :P BigGuy (talk) 23:20, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
Nah, a big guy like you could deal with them. Some ground up chili peppers on the hands always goes down well. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 23:22, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
The only potential disqualification for 'sopery here is asking for it. Don't worry, as said, some 'crat will trip over you and you'll be running this place singelhandedly within days. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:04, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Oops forgot to reply. Sorry, I would but dont use social networking sites. I'm all for a RW gay club though lol Tweety (talk) 21:50, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
Please use indents. If you don't and don't leave a blank line, comments wrap into each other. No big deal here, but good to remember as you wiki around. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:21, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Renaming[edit]

It does not work like that, you can not simply move the pages as you have stuck yours over the top of an unregistered users page, also you fark up the talk page notification box. If you want a rename ask a crat to do one for you. - π 01:08, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I like the word ghey. I've been using it for years and years and wondered if I was the only one. Everyone seems to know exactly that I'm talking about when I describe people's gheyness quotient, so I guess so. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 21:59, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

questions about rationalwiki[edit]

As a new user to rationalwiki, I have a few questions. Do any of the administrators on Conservapedia have checkuser privileges on this site? I want to make sure that if I make an account on conservapedia (for "serious editing" so I can observe the inner workings) that none of their admins will be able to detect that I'm a member at both sites. I would prefer to use the same email address (as it's my primary address) but I don't want to be blocked from CP. Thanks! Pythonscript (talk) 02:56, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

No. This website got rid of CheckUser long ago. You are safe in anonymity here. Gooniepunk2010 Oi! Oi! Oi! 02:58, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
No one, not even RWians (expect possibly the owner), have check user. Just becareful not to post as your IP here. Acei9 02:59, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
As posted. Trent, Nx, and Pi, who I think all have root access, can dig out IP addresses of editors, but it's a chore. And you can trust them. Also, didn't you kind of let the horse out of the barn by editing here to ask? ħumanUser talk:Human 03:06, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
PS, you'll get blocked from CP. Typical reason: "registering user name". ħumanUser talk:Human 03:06, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
Maybe. Does he use the same username at both places? Just curious.... The Goonie Punk Can't sleep, clowns will eat me! 03:08, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
I'm actually traveling right now so my IP address is dramatically different than what I normally use to edit CP, and when I edit CP "from the road" I use my home server remotely to do it so no worries there. The email address and user name on RW are also different than what I've been using on CP for the last two years, so I should be safe in that aspect as well. Thanks for the quick responses, everyone! Pythonscript (talk) 03:18, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Are you interested in parodying CP? Is that your plan lol. Good luck with that, they are seriously anal motherfuckers. And yes, CP does have checkuser, which they use liberally, but as others have said, RW does not have checkuser. We don't care. Most of us are sysops so it's easy to stop an attack, if needed. rational ghey (send a message) 21:38, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

I'm interested in trying to get a glimpse of the inner workings of CP, if only to fulfill my morbid curiosity. I've been editing there for almost two years but haven't had much time to make substantial edits. unfortunately. I only questioned because I found a record somewhere that User:Newton /  K e n  D o l l  is a sysop both here and on CP, and I wanted to make sure that he couldn't cause me any problems. Pythonscript (talk) 12:58, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Advice[edit]

Thanks for the advice on my talk page; I've survived almost two years on CP and am still editing strong and inserting pieces of misinformation into as many articles as I can. It's quite fun. As for advice, I've also found it helps to be buddy buddy with RW's favorite parodist TK. Two years later, I've still yet to be blocked once! Pythonscript (talk) 03:27, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

I think I know who you are, and I just may block you over there just to make things interesting....P-Foster (talk) 04:07, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
I'm shocked you managed to accomplish that. Wow, you should be giving me advice then! rational ghey (send a message) 12:46, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
P-Foster, I can't tell whether or not you're serious, but I'm curious as to what you feel is my user name on CP. As for advice to you, rationalghey, it isn't too hard to insert misinformation galore into CP articles considering that most of the content on CP is misinformation anyways. When you have a personality cult built around one person, reinforced by a small group of people that have built their own personality cults around themselves (Conservative, TK, Ed Poor, Karajou, even RSchafly, etc) it certainly makes for a bizarre world where complete factual oversight is impossible. The sysops might be able to stop outright vandalism (like the recent example of someone replacing Obama's name with "McGee") but simple misinformation is far more subtle. I pity the people attempting to use CP as an educational resource. Pythonscript (talk) 14:14, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
I'm a prolific vandalism fighter on Wikipedia, so I see what you mean. rational ghey (send a message) 23:44, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Fun:User:RationalGhey[edit]

Will be deleted in a few minutes. Since you are a sysop you can get the source to copy to your user page if you wish. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:10, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Oh, don't worry I just moved it back to where it once belonged. What the hell were you thinking? ħumanUser talk:Human 04:11, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
I liked the colored logo rational ghey (send a message) 11:30, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Ah, ok, I see. You can do that on the pages, let me find out how for you. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:56, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Shoot, I thought Mei had done it on her user page. You can alter the logo either you or everyone sees. Try asking Pi or Nx? Obviously it is done to the funspace, but that's probably in the sitewide common.css or monobook think or something. You need to do it either for just your pages or your monobook (so you see it everywhere). If I see one I'll try to remember to tell you how it's done. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:59, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks!! rational ghey (send a message) 02:00, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

I've asked on the talk:help page, if you figure it out first put the answer there, ok? Also, I'm sure it would be fine if you posted an intercom message asking how to do it. Beware, though, you'll probably start a trend ;) ħumanUser talk:Human 02:26, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Excellent, thanks, Pi! ħumanUser talk:Human 02:17, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
But how did you do it? You had to edit common.css? Isn't that a bit of a server load/slowdown to page loads? Like, say, if 100 of us do it? ħumanUser talk:Human 02:19, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Better way, start with this: Troll01.png And delete the change to common.css I will return. ħumanUser talk:Human 05:25, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

Get Conservapedia to "notice my user page"[edit]

Know of a way I can get Conservapedia sysops to notice my user page? I'm trying something out and I want to see how well it works on their psyche. Pythonscript (talk) 18:32, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Honey, they will notice in due time, I promise you. The psyche of a conservative (okay, at least the kinds we're dealing with) is one of paranoia and delusion. rational ghey (message) 18:38, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
By the way, there re a couple Conservapedia sysops who do regularly check on RW... just a warning (for your userpage). I can delete it if you want. And nice cp contribs. rational ghey (message) 18:39, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, please don't delete it. I want to see where this goes. :) Pythonscript (talk) 03:56, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Is there a way to add a permanent day counter to my page? I'm trying to count up the days since I posted my CP username on my RW user page, but I don't want to have to update it manually every time. I just want it to count the days since May 21, 2010. Thank you! Pythonscript (talk) 19:17, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Not that I know of... ask User talk:Human. rational ghey (message) 22:33, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Whatever, I asked for feedback, not to be a dick. Exactly why I think conservapedia's alexa's rank is higher than this site. Really can't help yourself, can you DS? rational homohey 22:18, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Lets all settle down. Also, Alexa ranks us so low because it only looks at IE users (only 10% of RW uses IE I think). Acei9 22:19, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Yawn. Human can be annoying at times, but even she never went ^ that far. rational homohey 22:21, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Alright then, you can be dicks on your own then. Acei9 22:23, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Just to chime in on Alexa, its changed is algorithm to be a a bit divorced from the toolbar but in a way it has made it worse. For example, if we get linked by facebook or reddit or somethingawful, etc. a 2000-3000 person increase in our base traffic will jump us 40,000+ "ranks" on alexa. However, if PZ Myers links to us and we get 8000-10000 new people coming in for the day it doesn't even register. So alexa is flawed, and even still is a poor substitute for understanding traffic patterns. CP gets external links because people post a link and says "wow go laugh at this bat shit insane thing" we get a link that is talking about some subject and merely links to us for "background knowledge." I would much prefer the later links, even if its not as much immediate traffic. Also there are many other ways to look at a sites activity, on a wiki take a look at number of edits, daily edits, and active users for one. All of this is talked about in depth in many places, the gist is simply be careful how you analyze success or failure and traffic patterns. tmtoulouse 22:25, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Digg[edit]

Just added the CP home page to digg [1] Tell your friends! I doubt the server will crash, but there's always a chance, and it's sure easier than mounting a DDOS attack that'll just get the server to block my IP. Digg it! Pythonscript (talk) 15:52, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Your opinions of sysops[edit]

Vandalism is boring. ÑR/Señor Admin/Hablar 01:25, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
Na. I would like to crack TK though. rationalI don't care 01:26, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
You won't crack him, he is to arrogant and self-important to crack. He will just dismiss you a liberal vandal and not care. If he even thinks of you at all it will be to look down on you. They are all like that. - π 01:28, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
I'd like to think differently. TK isn't as blind as the other ones are. Sure, he's an arrogant douche, but he's a bit more of a thinker. I suspect he's only there because he is terminally power hungry and enjoys feeling powerful, that's it. Again, he even swore at assfly and he was the one who thought a parodist was assfly himself. He likes to think. Perhaps, if not terminally power hungry, he does this for religious purposes, like he's on a mission. Regardless, I can't help but think he's just not as dumb as the others are. rationalI don't care 01:31, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

I really don't see what there is to combat, they have their site, we have ours. Chill, I am giving you some rep for the length of run. Pity Schlafly has no skills, a bot would have that cleaned up by now. I might write one for here. - π 13:18, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
Would be funner if they caught me sooner. :) rationalI don't care 13:21, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
Not really, the funny part is that it has taken Schlafly 14 minutes so far to clean up your mess, at this rate all the activity in an hour will be because of you. - π 13:25, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
True, but it does get boring after so long. I like changing the IP and then coming back and back. It's like playing whack-a-mole. Umm... they suck. rationalI don't care 13:27, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
I may not even believe everything i put into that site, heh, it is exaggerated, for the lolz. rationalI don't care 13:36, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
