Name filter[edit]

Can you not block Oliver Smith's name on the word filter for new account creations? Coombs is creating them almost everyday (view the block log) 2A06:1700:0:12:0:0:0:1 (talk) 12:49, 18 May 2021 (UTC)

Don't ask me. Ask someone who knows about technical stuff. Spud (talk) 12:50, 18 May 2021 (UTC)

Award[edit]

HardWork.jpg Tireless Worker Award
To Spud for protecting RW from account creation spam and harassment when no one else could.

Unrelated, but since I'm already here. Can you please answer my question here? GeeJayK (talk) 02:16, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

@GeeJayK Thank you for the award. It's much appreciated.
To answer your question, I also believe UShistoryanalyzer's primary reason for coming here was to be disruptive. Not to be disruptive just for the sake of being disruptive but to push a political viewpoint that he knew was the opposite of that of most RW editors and he knew would lead to conflict. OK, he has abided by the topic ban, although he tried to evade it at first by still writing on talk pages and writing about American history and politics on other users' talk pages, but I'm not aware of him making any worthwhile contributions anywhere else on the wiki. He has recently taken to writing very poor quality entries on the WIGO CP talk page about things happening on Conservapedia that aren't worth paying attention to and just make us look pathetic by paying attention to them.
As you are yourself, GeeJayK, I am concerned by UShistoryanalyzer's close relationship to LT. I am particularly concerned by his constant insistence that LT is somehow better than the other Conservapedia editors. He isn't. If he had any decency, he would stop editing Conservapedia. And he's now trying to follow in Ken's footsteps by creating multiple socks to troll us over here.
But this does seem to be pretty much irrelevant now. UShistoryanalyzer has made multiple edits today but hasn't responded to your post. I guess he doesn't want to be sysop too. Spud (talk) 06:55, 30 May 2021 (UTC)
Hum, I see your point. I have more important things to do, like taking care of my wedding, so don't expect me to do anything for the next few weeks as I won't be able to come here for more than a few minutes a day. But most of his edits over the last month were in fact reverting vandalism, which we all have to agree it's productive. In my opinion the main problem is the grudge with Flandres and Plutocow. He answered on is talk page, saying that he agrees with the conditions, maybe we could ask him to not revert their stuff, kinda like an informal iban, that won't automatically result in a block. This could happen even without a demotion, maybe. I'll think about your points when I have time. Thanks again for your answer. GeeJayK (talk) 16:06, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

Board nomination[edit]

You've been nominated to the RationalMedia Foundation election. Please accept or decline; if you accept, you may wish to campaign. Bongolian (talk) 07:31, 7 July 2021 (UTC)

Congrats on the board membership[edit]

You have been re-elected to the board for the next 2 years. I'm assuming @Cosmikdebris will take care of all this from here as the secretary of the board, I just ran the results. -- Techpriest (talk) 22:21, 26 August 2021 (UTC)

Hey, Spud, do you have a Discord or something we can discuss Board matters at? Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 03:12, 27 August 2021 (UTC)
@DuceMoosolini The right place for discussing board stuff is in the Google Group.
I joined Discord when I still had my old computer that stopped working in April 2020. Now I haven't got a clue what my password is. I suppose I ought try to do something about that, Spud (talk) 04:06, 27 August 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, I can’t seem to make that work, and the other four of us are in the Support Chat? Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 18:14, 27 August 2021 (UTC)

Hope you're having a great birthday Spud![edit]

For this special occasion I wanted to give you something. You will be happy to know that I have scoured the entire website to find the finest gift GIF known to humanity. Here:

Mind yourself. - Rairyu75 (Talk) 17:24, 29 August 2021 (UTC)

@Rairyu75 Thank you very much. I had a great birthday. I decided to do no work of any kind (either work-related work or wiki work). And I'm now a bit hung over after drinking a bottle of Famous Grouse. Spud (talk) 00:44, 30 August 2021 (UTC)

Happy 10th RW anniversary[edit]
