Thanks! Readymade (talk) 13:49, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
You're welcome! If you want me to erase your IP from the edit history of the saloon bar I can. Christopher (talk) 17:20, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
No, that's fine, thanks :) Readymade (talk) 17:23, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Ok, some people just don't like having a very convenient way of finding their location broadcasted to the world. Christopher (talk) 17:26, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

  • and can save permanent copies of webpages. Never lose a crank website or racist Tweet ever again!

Is it appropriate to give sysop rights at this point, so you can block?—Kazitor, pending 10:54, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

As a result of you're repeated rule breaks, I hereby expel you from Conservatives and Right-wingers alliance. You may request to rejoin on or after 7 March 2018. Right-wing RationalWiki, President of the Conservatives and Right-wingers alliance

As your position is purely honorary, and also because you are suspended, you do not have the power to expel members. WilderBicycle 21:00, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
The more you edit that page, the longer your suspension will be. I have control over the party, not you. --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 21:02, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
As you are suspended, you have no power to impose suspension, let alone extend a suspension. Under current party rules I am not suspended, or indeed expelled. You, however, are still suspended. WilderBicycle 21:03, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
I was never expelled or suspended in the first place and you never had the power to remove me from my positions. Please dpnt make me make your suspension permanent.--Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 21:06, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
As the position of President is purely honorary, you have no power to expel members. As Membership Secreteary, I have expelled you. WilderBicycle 21:13, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
Fear not for I am forming a new party as we speak! ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 22:13, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

You are hereby invited...[edit]

To join my new political party!! ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 03:23, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

The Daily Wire and the 2018 Winter Olympics[edit]

Hello, you disagree with the use of the Daily Wire in regards to their commentary on the mainstream media's coverage of the North Koreans in the 2018 Winter Olympics. What about the source and/or information do you disagree with? -- (talk) 01:31, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Hello? Any response? -- (talk) 23:27, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

Successor Party[edit]

After the inevitable leadership coup, I have reformed RWRW's paltry organization into my new party: User:RoninMacbeth/Party of the Haunting Abyss and Snickerdoodles for All. As Supreme Overlord of the Party, I hereby extend an invitation for you to become the Party's new Chancellor, seeing as how we're the only two sane Party members. RoninMacbeth (talk) 05:25, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

Sane? Sane? You won't get people to join by insulting them! WilderBicycle 10:28, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
You cannot ‘reform’ my party! --Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 12:25, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
@Right-wing RationalWikiTwo things. First, I totally can, because I am currently in the process of doing so. Second, "your" party? I advertised my intentions as clear as day, and you ignored them. Really, you lose the party through sheer incompetence, if nothing else.
@Readymade: OK, sure. We're a different kind of insanity. Call us "super-sane." RoninMacbeth (talk) 16:03, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
Its MY Party in MY userspace! And do you not see the irony in trying to reform a conservative party?--Right-wing RationalWiki (talk) 17:02, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
@Right-wing RationalWiki Well, it's not so much a "party" as it is a weird pet project. It's kind of like the book club I made for myself in second grade sad and pathetic with only one real member. And I actually don't think reform is necessarily opposed to conservatism. Plenty of historical conservatives have advocated reform to keep the whole system intact. If there is indeed irony here, it's that you seem to lack any understanding of the ideology you supposedly adhere to. RoninMacbeth (talk) 18:59, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
I recommend joining my party instead. 𝔊𝔬𝔞𝔱-𝔈𝔪𝔭𝔢𝔯𝔬𝔯 𝔅𝔦𝔤𝔰 (𝔴𝔬𝔯𝔡𝔰 𝔬𝔣 𝔴𝔦𝔰𝔡𝔬𝔪/𝔞𝔠𝔥𝔦𝔢𝔳𝔢𝔪𝔢𝔫𝔱𝔰) 03:30, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for giving the wiki what it needs. CamelCasePragmatist (talk) 16:00, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

Today I'm snowed in at home and bored silly, so I'm hanging round here a bit more than usual. WilderBicycle 16:13, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

Abd Lomax[edit]

I created a coop about him [1], you can respond there if you like. He has now written about your account on his blog. Debunking spiritualism (talk) 16:53, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

i can't find a reference to me on his blog. Link please? WilderBicycle 18:16, 11 March 2018 (UTC) CowHouse (talk) 04:28, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
Ooh, I'm a paid AP sock! How delightful. I'll let the gender assumption go by for now, it's part of his obsession that we're all The Smiths. WilderBicycle 08:49, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Talk:Ben Steigmann[edit]

I figured I should delete it because the pertinent article no longer exists. Steignmann's complaint was irrelevant. RoninMacbeth (talk) 19:33, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

We still don't delete talk pages, even for deleted articles. Instead, add Category:Talk pages for deleted articles (remove that first colon when you do). Thanks. WilderBicycle 19:38, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Protecting Elvis is King[edit]

Would not the best method be to alter the ban to disallow editing the talk page? —Kazitor, pending 22:43, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

I suppose so. Just as long as we're rid of the twat forever. But why would anyone want to edit a retired user's talk page? WilderBicycle 22:45, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
It just seems like a convoluted way to achieve the desired effect, I guess. —Kazitor, pending 22:48, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Sorry for making you **sigh**[edit]

>*sigh* belongs in elections

Sorry for making a mistake of putting election material on WIGO. I’ll do better next time. Dogeatsdog (talk) 19:40, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

No problem :) WilderBicycle 15:27, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

What's wrong?[edit]

You seem angry, if so why? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:17, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

I've spent the last couple of years here in two minds. I still had a feeling of wanting to still make some sort of contribution, and be part of a place I've been involved with since (almost) the beginning, but I've been growing increasingly frustrated at the decreasingly poor quality of the contributions here (apologies for lack of specifics, but it's kind a of a trend). I finally blew my top after asking for ninja rights (which i've had before) and, after saying in a jokey way that I can't write bots even though I want to, I get idiot comments from people thinking I want to write a bot. Are there really people who don't understand that "I would do x, but..." means "I cannot do X" rather than "I can do X"? Anyway, I'm off elsewhere. Do as you wish with the place, I've had enough. (talk) 17:40, 18 May 2018 (UTC) (Sophie)
I'm probably too late here, but it seems that by moving the page back to "requests for user rights" it wasn't on my watchlist anymore, which is kinda dumb. If I had seen what was happening, I'm pretty certain I would have understood what you were asking. Shame about how you were treated, but if you'd like you can ask again I'd give you ninja Th hug.gifKazitor, pending 06:54, 27 May 2018 (UTC)
I too should apologize as it was my drive-by joke that likely caused everyone else's teasing of you. Again, my apologies, I never intended to hurt you. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 12:48, 27 May 2018 (UTC)
