Time for the big leagues[edit]

Danfly san. In the spirit of Karate Kid, your training now involves having to do a bit of cleaning, painting, and general odd jobs. See our Sysop Guide for advice as to how you can get those floors sparkly clean. Incidentally, the Zeitgeist stuff you've been writing is interesting. Concernedresident omg!!! ponies!!! 23:21, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Wow. I'm a sysop already? I've never been a sysop before. This is exciting. I will try not to go on an insane rampage of power abuse. Glad you liked the essay by the way. --Danfly (talk) 17:22, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

When you make a new article.[edit]

Hey Dan. When you create an article, try to include a coupla internal links to obvious targets. Thanks! P-Foster (talk) 23:31, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Also, make sure something links to the damn thing as well. Cool. P-Foster (talk) 23:38, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

I normally do follow the first step. I was just lazy yesterday (and surprised JfJ didn't already have a page). I'll pay more attention to it in future. --Danfly (talk) 07:50, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Or you will be shot. P-Foster (talk) 13:16, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
How dare you talk to me in such a manner sir! I'm going to make a hate page especially for you now! --Danfly (talk) 16:38, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
Hate pages are so yesterday. ТyTalk. 16:39, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
Tch! Now I'm adding you to my Hate page --Danfly (talk) 16:42, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
I've only just realised P_Foster is TheoryOfPractice. Damn, I'm slow. --Danfly (talk) 00:05, 4 April 2011 (UTC)


But it gives me a error every time. :< ТyTalk. 19:37, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

O noes! I think I done bad :( Has this happened before? --Danfly (talk) 19:39, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
I honestly have no idea. ТyTalk. 19:40, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for trying anyway. I'm sure it can be fixed whatever happens (at least I hope!) --Danfly (talk) 19:42, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Nuked it. ТyTalk. 19:54, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! You are awesome! --Danfly (talk) 19:55, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
I've tidied up a bit - the page should now be gone from the Wanted List. :) --Sid (talk) 20:06, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Ah cool! So there is a way after all? You are also awesome sir, but it will lose meaning if a third one comes. --Danfly (talk) 20:09, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Try User talk:Danfly/Archive%(counter)d ТyTalk. 22:59, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
Ah thanks. I'm lucky you seem to stalking me :P --Danfly (talk) 23:01, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
-char edits on a userpage draw my attention. ТyTalk. 23:02, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
Got it. Thanks! --Danfly (talk) 23:08, 6 April 2011 (UTC)


Controversial how? And why'd you remove all of its categories? ThunderkatzHo! 18:01, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

I didn't mean to move all the categories. Sorry if I did. The idea of animal language is contentious because we have no way of knowing if animal systems of communication are comparable to human language and human language is generally what is meant by the term language. It's mentioned at the beginning of the language article. --Danfly (talk) 18:04, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
Gotcha. On a side note, looking at your recent articles, keep in mind that we try our hardest to not use Wikipedia as a source. ThunderkatzHo! 18:11, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
I'll keep it in mind. I'm sure I can work around it, since you seem to be a lot more lenient concerning blogs than wikipedia is. It's really just that wikipedia is a pretty easy way to find what you need. Assuming I have to use it, would it be better to cite their sources directly? --Danfly (talk) 18:15, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
This heading is misleading. You guys aren't talking about cat languages at all. Occasionaluse (talk) 18:17, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
@Danfly: Yes. @Occasionaluse: Meow. ThunderkatzHo! 18:18, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

Preview button[edit]

"Show preview" is right next to "Save page".--ZooGuard (talk) 15:34, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Doesn't change the fact it's easier to do them one at a time. --Danfly (talk) 15:43, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
No, but people will worry that Ken is trying to infiltrate RW. Röstigraben (talk) 17:07, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
Isn't Ken's account, i.e. User:Newton still there for him to log in to whenever he wants? --Danfly (talk) 17:11, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
Yes, but that partiular cover has already been blown, and the man of mystery requires a new secret identity if his schemes are ever to come to fruition. Don't worry though, we all know he's too cowardly to pop up here again. Röstigraben (talk) 17:17, 4 June 2011 (UTC)


New to you though it's an old one here...When the wiki sees the code [[Special:Mypage|<span class="myName">Anonymous readers of this site.</span>]] it renders it thusly:Anonymous readers of this site.. I see Cracker. You don't.

Ah, right. That makes me feel stupid, especially since I'm 99% certain I would have read that article before joining (and presumably seen my IP). At least I wasn't the first one to fall for it I guess.--Danfly (talk) 21:21, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Right. I used to get all hot and bothered by it until I went to quote the "offense" and saw the code there. Yeah, ya feel silly and then it's mildly funny and next time I'll let you inform the poor slub who hasn't gotten it yet. 21:24, 30 June 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ

Name change[edit]

Done. Blue (is useful) 06:09, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
