I set you to auto-patrol since you're clearly not a vandal. Unless you're a deep cover vandal. (And hopefully I'm following the right procedure here, since I only messed with user rights twice, and both times for testing a bot.) Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyar~) 14:44, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry, you've been demoted - enjoy your mop[edit]

I'm sure one or two corners of RW could do with a bucket of slop and a good mopping out. You have my sympathies. ScepticWombat (talk) 20:59, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

First person[edit]

Articles generally shouldn't contain first-person narration, even in references. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyar~) 15:53, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Could you link Bubba41102 42 is love 42 is life 15:54, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
Link what? Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyar~) 15:55, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

This edit is in conflict with the manual of style, in addition to a few spelling and grammar mistakes. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyar~) 16:03, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

"Dave Bernard"[edit]

Are you really going to fall for this shit? I mean the screenname is just blatantly trolling by copying DG's.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 03:59, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Or it's a guy named David Bernard, take your pick. PacWalker 04:00, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Someone chooses a screenname practically identical to a prominent member here and the first edit is about Gamergate. Assume god faith but don't be stupid about it.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 06:00, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Or chooses their own name, which is equally plausible. PacWalker 06:03, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes. A man named David Bernard decides to sign up on RationalWiki while we are heavily dealing with Gamergate idiocy and decides his first edit is to ask what a "hot take" is and then knows how to categorize a page without having 10 edits locally.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 06:07, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
I'm guessing you, along with anyone else experienced with TOW upon arrival here, knew how to categorize pages when you showed up. Am I right or am I right? (answer: I'm right) PacWalker 06:10, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Ryulong, please stop being paranoid. You're making the Texas sharpshooter fallacy. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyar~) 06:19, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
When someone's first edit is Gamergate related and they're mimicking the screenname of someone else I should be allowed to realize some shit is going on.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 06:56, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Ohmidog, he touched your talkpage! PacWalker 06:58, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
That's not the fucking point. RationalWiki is gathering eyes from the Internet nutters that make up Gamergate and these are people that make impersonation accounts for shits and giggles.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 07:02, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
That's not the fucking point. RationalWiki is gathering eyes from the Internet nutter that is Ryulong and that person is bitching at every new account in sight without shits and giggles even being attached. PacWalker 07:05, 3 May 2015 (UTC) (woah, I can do it too!)
Eat a dick.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 07:05, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Eat a dick. PacWalker 07:07, 3 May 2015 (UTC) (damn, I am on FIRE!)
Guys, please. I may personally find dicks disgusting, but I still refrain from using insultive phrases that stereotype blowjobs and/or gastronomic dick-consumption as inherently negative. (talk) 09:47, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Actually people in many countries eat bull testicles. Bubba41102 Taste the shortness` 14:58, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
I can guarantee you I have never gone by DG on this website or any other. Dave Bernard (talk) 06:21, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
I don't think that's quite the accusation. PacWalker 07:19, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

when somebody doesn't sign a talk page post...[edit]

Don't just ask them to sign beside the offending post. Tag the post in question with an {{unsigned}} template, piping the link to their username, and then put a polite {{sign}} notice on their talk page. Thanks, Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 15:44, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Got it didnt know the procedure for that Bubba41102 Taste the shortness` 15:45, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Starting an article of questionable missionality does not merit an "unwelcome"[edit]

Save it for trolls and wandals. That guy's intentions were good, and you shat on his talk page. Dial it back a little, will you? CamelCasePragmatist (talk) 20:50, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

I disagree, primarily because it is a BoN. --Castaigne (talk) 20:52, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Since when has editing from a bunch of numbers been prima facie evidence of bad intent? (Hint: since never.) CamelCasePragmatist (talk) 21:02, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Where on the unwelcome does it say bad intent, it says you may not understanc the mission statement so you should read (insert stuff here) Bubba41102Taste the shortness 21:04, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
I was asking Castaigne about his disagreement. Are you going to speak for him here?
See Template talk:Unwelcome where Human says, "This template is more of a pre-block shot across the bow, eh?"
Show me where you think BoN.94.219 was cruising for a block. CamelCasePragmatist (talk) 21:15, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
I think Template:Meh is more implicit Bubba41102Taste the shortness 21:06, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
it is nevcer implicitly stated on teh template Bubba41102Taste the shortness 21:16, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
I was trying to tel him hat he may not understand teh mission statement so he should read up more. Bubba41102Taste the shortness 21:17, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Did you read {{meh}} or {{meh/doc}}? Not for semi-welcoming so much as "go away", and addressed pretty clearly at registered users. WalkerWalkerWalker 21:22, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Tha tis waht i was saying, unwelcome immplies, read more, meh implies go away you troll, actuall we might need to give that to viharo Bubba41102Taste the shortness 21:24, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
When a BoN creates a pure science article for no apparent reason, especially after we've spent time weeding such out, it does not take anything further for me to render judgment. --Castaigne (talk) 21:20, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Take a look at how the AfD is going, and reconsider your judgement. CamelCasePragmatist (talk) 21:26, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Duude your acting like ive perma banned him, i just told him to read on the mission statement, cool down bro Bubba41102Taste the shortness 21:28, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
If you want to i give yu permission to cahnge it Bubba41102Taste the shortness 21:29, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
[EC] Telling him his welcome is "lukewarm at best" is a particularly tone-deaf way of trying to smarten him up about the mission. Please don't be the guy who makes a habit of dismissing good-faith contributors like that. CamelCasePragmatist (talk) 21:32, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
If they're good faith, they can get an account like everybody else. --Castaigne (talk) 21:35, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Except this awesome BoN Bubba41102Taste the shortness 21:38, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
[EC] That sounds too much like "Ihre Papiere bitte", and plenty of BoNs have made useful edits. CamelCasePragmatist (talk) 21:43, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
yes but 99% of them create accounts (the except the aforementioned BoN) Bubba41102Taste the shortness 21:47, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Ich werde weiter hart in meinem Urteil anderer zu sein. Für Rationalität! --Castaigne (talk) 21:49, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Genau. Und für dich ist mir kein Wurst zu teuer! Spoken like a true wotsit, sir, all the weirder who doesn't want to be a sysop "like everybody else." This ain't Citizendium, or did I miss a memo? BoNs are nominally welcome to add what they can. CamelCasePragmatist (talk) 22:26, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
OKay i am sorry it was a mistake. Bubba41102Taste the shortness 22:29, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
German? Should I send the BoN {{willkommen}} also? — Unsigned, by: PacWalker / talk / contribs
Also btew, i gave you permission o change it ages ago. Bubba41102Taste the shortness 22:31, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
It is my mission to make a welcome that is between welcome and unwelcome, so that people who dont understand the mission but arnt vandals get a welcome! Bubba41102Taste the shortness 20:54, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
(ec) {{welcomeip}}
{{welcome}} with an explanation of why that creation is questionable
{{welcome}} which has a link to what a RW article is to be anyhow
See an option you like? WalkerWalkerWalker 20:56, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
I like my idea better Bubba41102Taste the shortness 21:00, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Why would you need a template for something so specific? Say it in your own words. ЩєазєюіδWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:38, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

Now, if they were creating articles that were wildly off-mission, I would drop {{unwelcome}} down, but this appears to have been someone acting in good faith to contribute an article on a topic at least approaching missional, so I'd say the person should be welcomed whether the article is or not. WalkerWalkerWalker 21:09, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

I appreciate that you really like it here and want to contribute....[edit]

...but you've been here for two whole weeks, and seem to enjoy telling editors what they're doing wrong after their first fucking edit, even when those first fucking edits are not all that problematic. Think about dialling it down a bit, maybe. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 00:50, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Just one question what is the procedure when somone braks the RationalWiki:Community Standards? Bubba41102Taste the shortness 01:19, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Discussion, Vandal Bins/Bans, Bans/demotions, and Coops sometimes followed by sanctioned bans and demotions. --Miekal 01:23, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
And if you're unsure, there's no harm in doing nothing until someone who's been here a while shows up. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 01:25, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

The CP:-template links to Conservapedia, not RationalWiki[edit]

Just a heads up: The CP: template links to pages on Conservapedia, not articles on RW about Conservapedia which are instead prefaced by Conservapedia:. Hence the difference between Night of the blunt knives and Night of the Blunt Knives. Just for future reference, mind you. ScepticWombat (talk) 14:06, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Sorry was just linking to the article, was trying to use the namespace shortening. Bubba41102Taste the shortness 18:12, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
On an unrelated note, I can see that you've reverted Jarrah White's BoN champion's deletions (welcome to the club). I'll just point out that the problem isn't that this BoN hasn't "talked it out" on the talk page first, but that he simply will not accept that other editors don't agree with his repeated claims of libel. His references to Weaseloid are problematic in that the latter simply wrote that there shouldn't be any libel in the article (duh), but hasn't (yet) sat down and evaluated whether there is. I flagged the article some time ago and managed to get yet another two RW editors to check it and they also couldn't discern any libel. Anyway, I thought I'd give you a quick run down on this particular BoN, if you intend to interact with him further than simply reverting his Whiteknighting and -washing blanket deletion (lame pun, I know, but my patience with this BoN ran out half a dozen responses ago). ScepticWombat (talk) 06:23, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

whoooooo pibot setup[edit]

if i messed up please fix the code if i messed up massively. Bubba41102Taste the shortness 19:09, 18 May 2015 (UTC)


Note I expanded the section in the undo. (talk) 13:03, 1 June 2015 (UTC)


Why am I being referenced on multiple user's pages, even though I have done hardly anything? Godless Liberal 10:14, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

not sure what you are talking about? i haven't referenced you at all. please explain. Bubba41102Anonymous user is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike an editor 16:16, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

Interesting signature[edit]

Just not sure what it means (to clarify, I know how you're generating it, I'm just wondering what I'm missing). The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 22:38, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

You use {{USERNAME}} it has to be all caps for some reason Bubba41102Anonymous user is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike an editor 00:07, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
I find your sig amusing and I am absolutely NOT an editor yet. I hope you didn't think I was. I can barely wiki but I haven't died even once.Sacrelicio (talk) 06:06, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Bubba Baby[edit]

Would you care to elaborate on, "Carptrash is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike an editor?" What might I do, for example, that would make me "entirely unlike an editor"? Cause I might as well go the whole nine yards. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 04:58, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

sorry to be asking but what is the question here, is it in reference to how did I do it, or are you asking for an explaination on what it means? Bubba41102Anonymous user is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike an editor 11:56, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
Not sure why you should be "sorry" (is that done with a Canadian accent?) but I am after meaning. I am guessing that I could figure out the "how" by looking at your codes (or whatever). No, it's the "why" that I am after. Or, as Artie Johnson used to say, if you are another ancient, "Very interesting, but vat does it mean?" Carptrash (talk) 16:46, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
oh basically you just put in {{USERNAME}} It has to be all caps for some reason here is what turns up Anonymous user Bubba41102Anonymous user is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike an editor 20:00, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
So when those letters and codes are typed in my user name shows up? Those folks might have been right. I am a legend. Carptrash (talk) 21:15, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
No it shows the user looking at its username. Bubba41102Anonymous user is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike an editor 11:56, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
I suppose this is why I shall never make it as a rational being. Carptrash (talk) 14:07, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

What is this I don't know[edit]

Woah, dude, my name is on your tagline... Zexcoiler Kingbolt (talk) 23:14, 22 August 2015 (UTC)Zexcoiler Kingbolt

it's a bit of wiki code it's fine I'm not targeting you, it shows whoever is looking at it's name Bubba41102Anonymous user is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike an editor 00:12, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Oh. Didn't know that. Thanks for clarifying. Zexcoiler Kingbolt (talk) 00:17, 23 August 2015 (UTC)Zexcoiler Kingbolt
