Moral Matrix[edit]

On the moral matrix graph (Talk Main Page) it looks like we're about the same, morals wise. I can't work out if you're on top of me, or I'm on top of you, though. Don't mind, either way ;) Spica 18:51, 16 January 2008 (EST)

Well, we're both Brits & I think I'm on top though it wouldn't matter as I'm not into guys (which I assume you are by your strange hiverishness). I don't think that we really understand the Murkan mind - they (at least AS) don't undestand ours. They seem much more polarised than our political system (sic). The Religious Right are further out than te Brit Nats and their leftists are probably to the right of the Tories. It's all rather strange really. I just don't want us to go the same way. TB going Catholic has really annoyed me - that Liberal guy is Atheist how about that! I tend to rant - sorry. SusanPurrrrrrr 19:09, 16 January 2008 (EST)

<Pulls foot out of mouth> Ooops! Apologies for the "on top" remark - I should've been more broadminded, being a psych nurse ("when you assume, you make an ass out of u and me"). Me, I've done the whole wife+2 kids+mortgage+dog+2 cars bit. And yes, even our beloved BNP are less right-wing than the American right-wingers. I think their lefties are watery though, not like our unionised lot.Spica 19:17, 16 January 2008 (EST)
BTW, Hivers don't have genders - they reproduce by passing genetic material between each other with their rear limb, and there's no pleasure involved. They call it "shaking hands". You really don't want to know where they keep their eggs........... Spica 19:17, 16 January 2008 (EST)
This place is still such a wonderful source of lulz! Yup, USAians are insane. As one who has lived here his entire "adult" life, I think, "wait, I'm really a socialist/liberal". Then I remember, I'm still a British citizen. 200 miles north is escape if I ever need to. Or, if it's not an emergency, there's always the "right of return".

template style[edit]

Have you noticed that many WP infoboxes (etc.) now contain three small links, to "edit/talk/(something)"? I think we should start trying to do something like that, to make the path to fixing things shorter. The "something" might be "view"... yeah, it's "view/talk/edit" I think.

We could just use a "pagename" thing and burn through a bunch of them pretty easily I think. And double "small" tags to minimize visual impact. Just a thought... humanUser talk:Human 11:56, 21 January 2008 (EST)

I was looking at this very thing myself on MediaWiki today and it is just a standard template that transcludes the template name. And Human, if your eyes are so bad why do you want double small fonts? Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding 12:40, 21 January 2008 (EST)
So they don't take up space. Though, I think I have also seen them set up as "V/T/E", which can be bigger but not intrusive. So, yeah, we could have an easy to type template that can be put anywhere we want in various navboxes and tempaltes? template name? "vte"? humanUser talk:Human 12:46, 21 January 2008 (EST)


Something about this seems to have broken helpnav, and although I keep thinking I'm gonna fix it, nothing helps.

It probably didn't help that we were both editing it at the same time! Do you have any idea what's wrong? I even tried deleting almost all the text (to eliminate nowikis and noincludes) and it didn't help.

I'm gonna try removing it from the help category & helpnav just to "heal" helpnav for now... Sorry if I messed up your work. humanUser talk:Human 12:30, 24 January 2008 (EST)

Seems ok now! : - p SusanPurrrrrrr 12:34, 24 January 2008 (EST)

I fixed it - it was the nowikis on the main help page, check my last edit there. Somehow one was getting hung up and puking the rest of the list on helpnav. humanUser talk:Human 12:35, 24 January 2008 (EST)
Hmmm, the third line of instruction at the bottom of main help is still half-breaking. Right now it's deleted. Apparently, even though it is nowiki'd, the part that says "{{keyword|helpkey=parameter}}" is being read and the word "parameter" gets added to the "Main help page" thing in helpnav. What's the "gibberish" for curly brackets so we can get rid of them? That might fix it. humanUser talk:Human 12:43, 24 January 2008 (EST)

Hey, don't forget to start a section called "cover story" on a talk page when you add the nomination template... I did it on a couple you added, along with "(please do not archive this section)" above where discussion would occur. I wish we could automate starting that section! I could add a link to the template, but it would have to be able to figure out if the section exists in the talk page first. (if not, the link would be "talk xyz &action=edit &section=new", thereafter it would be "talk xyz #cover_story", or some such. humanUser talk:Human 12:22, 29 January 2008 (EST)

Broadband cost[edit]

Re broadband - we're a tad cash short @ the moment so I'm continuing as I am - this cell phone/pda contract includes unlimited internet access - BT is about £25 ($50) per month) & it's a bit over budget @ the moment. Sorted them (BT) out - down to £60 from initial bill of £327! Only slight downside is we have no landline at all! SusanPurrrrrrr 12:53, 29 January 2008 (EST)

Well, I try not to judge a book by its author.

I agree re book/author (in theory) but I;'m allways wary that they might be pushing a point of view. Ender's game I felt (all awards aside) to be written for15 year olds with a reading age of 8. I think it's poorly written and plot weak. (I've had this conversation with someone here before - Thunderkatz?) It just didn't have that "want to know what happens next" feel & I couldn't empathise with the characters. Just btw I enjoyed a lot of Piers Anthony's books until I read a diatribe in the back of one - can't remember what it was exactly but it put me off him for life. I can't help colouring my view of the book with my opinion of the author - ignorance is bliss. SusanPurrrrrrr 21:25, 3 February 2008 (EST)

Sorry about that, I forget your pageload time issues. See what I said about the ref thing, though? I viewed the "source" of template talk:ispage as it is now, and the "ref" sets up as a link, but where the references tag should build a list, there is nothing - so it might be a "bug" in how MW parses pages for output.

Inasmuchas AKJ has apparently taken his godbothering to the extent of being the ultimate guiding conscience of RationalWiki, I can't in all honesty stay. user:SusanG 04:02, 18 February 2008 (EST)
Susan, a wiki is the sum of its contributing editors and the loss of one editor ia largely irrelevant. There have been many here whom I was not sad to see the back of despite the Oh Noes bewailing their loss. However, if you leave then the hole will be disproportionately large. I am still unhappy with the conflict resolution here as it is arbitrary and AK's blocking shows a shameful disrespect of another sysop which in my view oversteps the limits. If there were issues about your edit then it should have gone to a sysop discussion. Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding 04:33, 18 February 2008 (EST)
AK, that was incredibly heavy-handed. Susan has been part of the backbone of RW. Kip the Dip? A wandering follower of his buddies from wiki to wiki, at best. I think you acted poorly, whatever she may have said. I think the question "Is RatWiki becoming a haven for children with strange non-mission agendas?" is well put, under the circumstances.
Susan: I hope you don't mind, I restored your user page. Don't leave in a snit. It's been a weird weekend overall, what with Ungwie's deceptive insertion of ID trolling all over our articles.
Back to AK: Do you really think that Kip the Dip, future preacher, is as important an asset to this wiki as, say, our Susan? Sure, we'd like to "keep" Kip the Dip, I suppose. But why, exactly? humanUser talk:Human 04:42, 18 February 2008 (EST)
Actually, I have a different question. Why was that edit supposed to be so offensive to Mr Dip anyway? I must admit that I've not been following this one, but the comment could just as easily (or indeed, more easily) have been directed at New Gwension or our New World Order fanatics.--Bobbing up 04:46, 18 February 2008 (EST)
Think about this for a moment... a new user who contributed nothing, but whinged about there being a lot of atheism on this site, caused AK to block a long time trusted and valued editor here. As I said elsewhere, I will be happy to entertain discussion of a brief promotion of AK to "editor" from "sysop" for incredibly poor judgement. humanUser talk:Human 04:56, 18 February 2008 (EST)
Jesus Fucking Christ! You're all just itching to turn this incident into website-dividing schism, aren't you? AKjeldson—discussion would have been more productive than a ban. That was poor judgment on your part. Susan—how is AKjeldson "godbothering"? He made no mention of god at all—you did. Clearly, his concern was the people here, rather than the abstract intellectual purity that you seem to be seeking in this site. Ghengis—"a wiki is the sum of its... editors... the loss of one editor is largely irrelevant"? That's rather cold of you. I also find it interesting that you think of Kip the Dip as "just one editor", a loss we can easily sustain, and then turn around and call Susan invaluable. Quite the double standard. Kip the Dip expressed that he was interested in discussion, and as a religious user, was part of a minority on this site that we desperately need more of. Susan is major contributor to this site. And you can't think of a way to keep both of them? Human—"But why, exactly"? Since when did we need a reason to keep our users? He was clearly interested in discussion, and yet you just brush him off? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:08, 18 February 2008 (EST)
Sorry, RA, Kip the Dip was not interested in discussion. He followed some friends here (like, today), and discovered it was not a place he was comfortable (like, after looking around). So AK blocked Susan - an editor of long standing and immense contributions to what RW is. Does that make any frickin' sense? humanUser talk:Human 05:12, 18 February 2008 (EST)

Gah. More drama. To cut to the point, people, Susan made a comment which I found hostile, which was pretty clearly directed against Kip (being on his user page), and which he took exception to. There are certain standards of behaviour, both in the rules here and in the "common law" of netiquette. Also, in my personal opinion, these rules should especially protect newbies - long-time users are probably used to the tone here, but new users are easy to scare away. For that reason, I found it appropriate to impose a 9-hour block which was short enough to be just a bit of a nuisance, but long enough to not be entirely symbolical. Maybe that was poor judgement on my part, but all I can do here is to enforce the rules as I interpret them.

I could hardly foresee that Susan would overreact by quitting entirely, but that would not make me change my decision - I don't think anybody should be above having to follow the rules. Moreover, I strongly reject the idea that being an asset - which I fully agree Susan is - should exempt you either. If anything, that should mean being held to higher standards.

Anyway, ask youselves this: If Susan had not quit, whould there even be a problem here? If not, should drama of all things exempt you from following the rules? --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 05:14, 18 February 2008 (EST)

AK, you blocked Susan for nine frickin hours, for a comment she made to some fly-by-night visitor. And you think she over reacted? How exactly did you determine 1) that she should be blocked, and 2) for how long? PS, you have email. humanUser talk:Human 05:29, 18 February 2008 (EST)
To be fair to her, it was not on Kip's User page, it was on a Debate Page by him, and probably also meant as fun, as you can expect from, and towards, the Uncyclopedians coming over here. Editor at RWwas rooting for HD DVD 05:17, 18 February 2008 (EST)
Having read (I think) all Mr Kip's comments about his leaving he doesn't seem to regard it as his primary reason. In fact, he give his reason for leaving as "Not being clever enough". I also note that he found the whole tone of the site a bit too atheistic for him. He only made a small reference to Susan's post some time after AKjeldsen explicitly asked him about it. Holding Susan primarily responsible for his departure would seem, to me, to be excessive. I'm also not sure which community standard, if any, Susan is supposed to have broken even if she were responsible for Mr Kip's departure.--Bobbing up 05:40, 18 February 2008 (EST)
I think his debate page, where Susan posted first, then me, was what started Kip's decision. There was a fun part, at least by me, and I guess by Susan, and may be a bit of disappointment with these newbies from that other wiki, who come here and start using it as their own house (which RW is, but you should first see how it works). Then Kip overreacted. Then I overreacted, and Genghis overreacted. Then AKJeldsen overreacted. Then Susan overreacted. Then Human overreacted. Should we just call it quit? Editor at RWwas rooting for HD DVD 05:50, 18 February 2008 (EST)

AK: Quoting you and commenting:

"More drama.": That you created.

"To cut to the point, people, Susan made a comment which I found hostile" It wasn't directed at you.

"which was pretty clearly directed against Kip (being on his user page)" Wrong, see above. You did not even get your facts right.

"There are certain standards of behaviour, both in the rules here and in the "common law" of netiquette." We don't have "rules", we have guidelines.

"Also, in my personal opinion, these rules should especially protect newbies - long-time users are probably used to the tone here, but new users are easy to scare away." This Kip the Dip was barely here, obviously following some buddies from other wikis, and simply had already decided that RW was not for him.

"For that reason, I found it appropriate to impose a 9-hour block which was short enough to be just a bit of a nuisance, but long enough to not be entirely symbolical. Maybe that was poor judgement on my part," Yup, really poor judgement. A nine hour block? Based on what, exactly? Your being offended by talk between two other editors?

"but all I can do here is to enforce the rules as I interpret them." We don't need no stinkin' "enforcers". Susan broke no rule I know of. You, however, have ignored the internal nature of RW's society and the nature of how we know each other and get along. To me, that is 100 times worse than losing some Kip the Dip who doesn't even want to be here anyway. Mr. Kjeldsen, I am disappointed in you. humanUser talk:Human 05:37, 18 February 2008 (EST)

I'm disappointed that you're disappointed in me, Human. :-( Obviously, this has uncovered some considerable differences of philosophy regarding the role of a sysop. Anyway, I'll just point out that the user said himself that the comment in question was part of the reason behind his decision to leave. But you didn't comment on the last part of my comment: Is this really a community that bases what few rules guidelines we have on respect of persons? --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 05:52, 18 February 2008 (EST)
AK, you make some valid points but that is all the more reason that you should have taken any reservations you have about the action of a sysop to discussion. It is poor netiquette to punish your peers. Try doing that on Wikipedia and see how far that would get you. It is actually common courtesy to request an explanation and permit time for a reply, then allow a group of peers to adjudicate.
RA I'm sorry if you find my comment cold. There have been a lot of editors who came here, did some stuff and moved on. We can't weep over all these sparrows who are lost to us. Wikis are like that, the wiki continues even though the body of editors change, it's not like we are consigning them to starvation or a life in poverty. You are also twisting my words, I did not say Susan was invaluable I said that her loss would be much greater. There is no double standard just a recognition of worth. No one editor is paramount but Susan has done a lot of exceptional work here. I think most editors recognize that she has been more than just another editor, particularly one who just drifts in, decides maybe its not their scene and relly just want's to go back to another wiki after all. As for wanting discussion KtD pretty swiftly withdrew from engaging in discussion. I have no qualms with religious people here but this is a rational wiki and those with a religious inclination should be arguing their case from a rational viewpoint. It can be done but I sincerely doubt that basing arguments on biblical inerrancy will achieve much. We may like to have lots of new editors here, but we cannot expect to unreservedly accommodate every point of view, that's why white-supremacist, jew-bashing, homophobes get short shrift here. Before some idiot tries to twist my words, let me point out that I am not lumping anyone here in that category, just pointing out that we already have some limits.

IP's Rant[edit]

Regal Rant ( Genghis'll get the allusion)
My comment on the Debate page referred to the fact that the editor had arrived from Uncyclopedia, apparently following or at the invitation of friends, with the intention of continuing infantile discussions which had begun on that site (Family Guy!). At no time had the editor's religious inclination been mentioned, if it had I might have held back for fear of being castigated for picking on him for his beliefs. I believe that it was after AKj had learned of his intention of becoming a pastor (whatever that is - I'm afraid I neither know nor care) that he asked the leading question "was it anything to do with this", this being my comment. The next thing I knew was that he had blocked me for 9 hours. When I commented on his being a "godbotherer" he later accuses me of bringing religion into it!
I might have been out of order in my comment but I think that there is a childish element among some of the younger editors (aided and abetted by some of the older ones) that waste time and detract from the purpose of the wiki. Occasionally (no I can't give examples!) Recent changes is full from bottom to top with inanities. It is no wonder that we're not taken seriously by some casual visitors.
AKj's attitude seems to be that his vast learning entitles him to decide the rights and wrongs of a situation without consultation - star chamber anyone?
A couple of weeks ago AKj was, I thought, rather rude to a new editor, I apologised for him, in an understanding manner in a conversation (sorry it's partly in German!) on my talk page #Ja ich habe dich gesehen (a rough translation of my comment is: " Here we are all friendly but Akj is a little like a schoolteacher, he is very clever and knows very much, but he thinks that others know nothing") - some such would have been appropriate in this case. User:SusanG12:56, 18 February 2008 (EST)

Good that you want an armistice. And good that you are back :-) . The scapegoat of all this should be the young Uncyclopedian (he brought religion into this, not you or AKjeldsen), but what did he do? He just followed his colleagues, but was surprised by the "hostile" (was it?) welcome. AKjeldsen took his defense, also after "atheist" attacks from GK and others, and sure knew you could unblock yourself (couldn't you?). Who hasn't been blocked here before (EVEN I have been blocked once UPDATE:twice)? Frankly, he overreacted, you overreacted, everyone else overreacted. People, block me for a change if you feel like that. And let's direct our efforts against our common enemy. Editor at RWwas rooting for HD DVD 13:22, 18 February 2008 (EST)
Ed, comiserations about the HD-DVD thingy. Let me reiterate that I was not making an atheist attack on Kip. I have no quibbles with people of faith, my concern is about how they use that faith to control others. I could go on at length but don't want to soil someone elses talk page. At the moment, I am just glad to have Queen Susan back. Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding 13:52, 18 February 2008 (EST)

First of all, Susan, it's good to see that you haven't left after all. I'll follow up on your candid Regal Rant with a more plebeian one of my own. (Hope this won't make you quit again ;-) ). Anyway, there are so many issues involved here, I barely know where to start, but the fundamental question seems to be one of management philosophy, so let's begin there.
Firstly, above, Human was kind enough to remind me that we have no rules here. He thinks that's a good thing. I strongly disagree. I think this is a bad thing. It is a very, very bad thing, because it leads to exactly this sort of situation: One sysop sees something he thinks should be acted upon, and does so to the best of his ability, experience and interpretation of the few guidelines that we do have. This interpretation turns out to be contrary to what a bunch of other people think, and the whole thing breaks down into a shouting match. Result: Nobody is better off.
Now, on other sites where I've been involved in moderating, a block of some hours' time have basically been a slap on the wrist, especially if it's against a sysop who can basically unblock themselves whenever they feel like it. Here, it's apparently considered a serious punishment. That's perfectly fine, but then let's have RationalWiki:Blocking policy reflect that fact!
Also, the gist of the discussion above seems to be that long-standing editors shpould be granted greater leeway in their behaviour than newbies, while the latter are not given any particular protection. Again, that's practically the opposite of the policies I'm used to from elsewhere, but no matter - if that's the concensus here, then again: Let's put that in RationalWiki:Community Standards. As far as I'm concerned, anything would be preferable to the current situation where we have some semi-vague rules "guidelines" combined with a whole bunch of unwritten rules which apparently can get a sysop lynched if he dares to displease the opinion of the mob. And frankly, I honestly think it is a little bit unfair to shout at me for violating some rules which do not even exist. But enough about that - any further discussion on this subject should probably be taken to RationalWiki talk:Community Standards.
Secondly, since my personality has been tuned into an issue here... Let me say that I more than anyone realize that my behaviour and attitude are frequently far from than ideal, but honestly speaking, Susan, there is a certain number of black pots and kettles involved here. I know few people who behave as openly degrading towards people who deviate from their own world-view as you do, and as someone who has been on the receiving end of that more than a few times, let me tell you it is bloody unpleasant - I've seriously considered leaving permanently several times after reading through something like that. So what do you say about if we make a pact to both try to work on our manners and our openness? I suspect our mutual efforts would considerably improve this place on that account.
Finally, thirdly - a few people seem to have gotten the idea that this whole blocking thing has something to do with the fact that both I and, for all any of us know, KtD are Christians, and that Susan is definitely not. I had to take a moment to wrap my head around that one.
WTF, people?! Are you seriously suggesting that I have based my decisions as a sysop on who is or is not religious? If so, I inform you that you are now officially too far removed from reality. Seriously, sometimes it seems as if everything in this effing place has to be turned into a question of religion, no matter what. I had really expected much better
However, this particular little aspect of the matter seems to be an indication of a different and more general problem with RW which I am going to address here soon, because I don't want to clutter up Susan's talk page more than necessary. Thank you for your attention. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 16:29, 18 February 2008 (EST)
I agree with some of your points AK. There are no proper conflict resolution procedures here. I argued for them after TK was blocked but Trent wanted to carry on in the same vague way. It's a pity that he's not around to join in these discussions. I won't address all your points here as you will probably open a more appropriate forum elsewhere.

Ah you're capped, obviously not a big mp3 or pron user then. I'm not hot on security for 3G (I was going to check your hardware firewall and wifi security settings). For anti-virus try AVG-Free. You'll need a decent software firewall, something other than Windows own so try ZoneAlarm. Check your ports with Shields Up! do this before and after you install your firewall so you can see if there's any difference. Spyware products vary and can give a lot of false positives (many harmless cookies) as well as missing some stuff, the consensus is to run several different ones. I'll dig out some names for you later. Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding 12:08, 20 February 2008 (EST)

Are you certain about recommending ZoneAlarm, Genghis?

Before Genghis comes with his spyware list, mine are Spybot and Adaware - I stay away from the Windows one instead. Editor at RWSchumi on Ducati? 12:58, 20 February 2008 (EST)
Oh, and yes, I am with Genghis regarding antivirus, AVG is free, good, and not annoying. Editor at RWSchumi on Ducati? 13:00, 20 February 2008 (EST)
You can configure Zone Alarm to be quiet or verbose. Personally I like to know what is requesting access out of my machine but don't need to know about every foiled inbound attack. Also I wasn't aware of a free Norton version. DP I wouldn't be too smug about OSX, there are fewer viruses out there but that is only because Windows has the biggest market share and the black hats play the percentages. Any major increase in market share will encourage the virus writers to target Apple products. Anyway I don't believe that viruses pose the same threats that they used to. It has become much more difficult. The hackers now concentrate on phishing and Trojans as the weakest link in any computer security system is normally the bit that moves the mouse and presses the keys. Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding 13:15, 20 February 2008 (EST)

So you blocked me for being mean to Hoji on another site?? Or are you saying I'm a scumbag for blocking a vandal? JazzMan 19:05, 24 February 2008 (EST)
Shhhhhhh. Don't tell them they are hypocrites. They don't like that. Lurker 19:06, 24 February 2008 (EST)
The argument was brought here (by Hoji) & you continued it here. Therefore the actions on cp were relevant. (Oh & piss off Lurker. Now that's mature - @ the cp level)SusanPurrrrr 19:09, 24 February 2008 (EST)

This conversation is about to go badly downhill, inevitably ending in comparisons to Hitler, and hurt feelings all around.
Stop now. Step away from the keyboard.
Go pet a jerboa, or milk a goat.

Thank you NightFlare. Susan, that line of logic makes no sense. JazzMan 19:15, 24 February 2008 (EST)

By the way the site your looking for that has the policy of not blocking/responding to users based on what they do on other sites is down the hall (now that is hypocrisy). tmtoulouse annoy 19:13, 24 February 2008 (EST)

Too late NightFlare it got to the bottom when a cp-ite opened his ugly fascist mouth here. SusanPurrrrr 19:15, 24 February 2008 (EST)
WTF? What have I ever done that's the slightest bit fascist? You'd better check your hatred before it consumes your entire life, Susan. JazzMan 19:17, 24 February 2008 (EST)
Fascist? being a member of CP! nuff said Now get off my talk page. SusanPurrrrr 19:19, 24 February 2008 (EST)
Susan - you are pathetic and an embarassment. 19:22, 24 February 2008 (EST)
Actually, it's been a while since we discussed how cp mirrors fascism, but now i'm thinking it's becoming more like a cult.-- Asclepius staff.png-PalMD --Unhand me, scoundrel! 19:26, 24 February 2008 (EST)
Can we stop the tit-for-tat retorts now? NightFlareSpeak, mortal 19:28, 24 February 2008 (EST)
