Sorry I deleted your article[edit]

Well, not really sorry. It was badly written, badly formatted, uncited, lacked an introduction, incoherent, and inaccurate. But I don't want you to be discouraged. Please take a look at what makes a good rationalwiki article, and try again. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 20:14, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Your complaints are all fair. In order: it was sort of a joke, I wasn't actually sorry it was gone because of the reasons I gave. It had real problems. I deleted "annointed". In order to improve, you've gotta do a few things: 1. Start with a 1 paragraph introducing the concept, what it is, where it comes from, what it means, and a snarky first-glance hot take on it(if it's bad). 2. Create a subsection for any kind of listish content(like what you had before), and format the list with # or * entries. 3. Coherence isn't easy to describe, but following advice 1 and 2 will get you a lot closer. Basically try keep on topic as much as possible, and jokes should be pointed or witty. 4. Citations. Cite statements of fact, especially ones someone might argue with. 5. Accuracy is fuzzy, but I felt for such a short article, you were even more short on facts, rich on generalizations. Hope that all helps. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 12:57, 2 January 2019 (PST)
Dear, Ikanreed - RationalWiki is not a joke, son. The first thing you need to do is tell the truth. Why the heck are you even 'a moderator'? This is supposed to be a website to catalogue the rational truth, not 'snarky first-glance' hot takes. You are a categorical failure when it comes to basic intellectual intercourse. What you did was irresponsible and wrong. You should be apologizing and then you should reinstate the article. Also - I am the one who correctly spelled 'anointed' and in your defense of your unjust deletion you just misspelled 'anointed' writing it with an "ann-" instead of "an-". Good luck on your heist, E-1. thenextgenwins🐐Bleat at me 12:57, 2 January 2019 (PST)
I'm not a moderator. My only unusual credential is "tech". If deleting crap articles is irresponsible, call me the goddamn manchild king. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 21:09, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
Dear the goddamn manchild king (AKA "Ikanreed") - it is irresponsible for you to interfere directly with the work of individuals who are clearly intent on develop a catalogue of academic truth. There is a time and a form for humor and for you there are only times and forms for rebuke against you. I would hate to have your editing privileges revoked. thenextgenwins🐐Bleat at me 13:15, 2 January 2019 (PST)
Oh that'd be terrible to lose my posting privileges. Whatever could I do with my time when I can't get fish to feed the sea lions. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 21:32, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Don't alter them. You've done so three times so far, a fourth earns a loss of talkpage privileges. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:38, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
