Please, create them on RationalWiki:Drafts if they're only a few lines. You may also want to check RationalWiki:What is a RationalWiki article? before creating a new page. GeeJayK (talk) 01:05, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

@GeeJayK @Plutocow Ok, and can I also be paroled from the vandal bin? Thanks. Unclescrooge (talk) 01:09, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
I'm not a mod, you'll have to ask on ATIM again. GeeJayK (talk) 01:14, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
Since your last few edits appear to be constructive, I'll parole you under the conditions outlined here at ATIM. If you break them, I or someone else will put you back in. Plutocow (talk) 03:00, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
I'll repost them here so you're aware:
  • No more inserting pointless trolling comments on the bar, talkpages, user talkpages, coop or anywhere else.
  • No edit warring with other editors; take it to the talkpage instead.
Plutocow (talk) 03:03, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
Thanks! Unclescrooge (talk) 03:06, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

Remember your parole conditions[edit]

“No more inserting pointless trolling comments on the bar, talkpages, user talkpages, coop or anywhere else.” Christopher (talk) 22:42, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

Just came here to say this. Thank you, Chris. GeeJayK (talk) 22:44, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
I'm returning you to the bin. You violated the terms of parole:[1] Bongolian (talk) 03:16, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

John Kerry[edit]

I have no problem with the criticism re private jet etc, and it is well sourced. But you package that edit in with a bunch of other minor nonsensical changes. Kauri0.o (talk) 05:18, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

AHEM[edit]

@Cosmikdebris So based off the block log detail, are you saying that CNN is propaganda? Unclescrooge (talk) 04:11, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Vandal Bin[edit]

You promised not to start flamewars and troll talkpages, so your vandal bin was revoked, but now are starting doing it again. You remind me of TAOB when he said he would stop vandalizing this wiki, you two can't keep promises. MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 13:07, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

About Donald Trump[edit]

Problem is not the information, it's where you're putting it. This article is huge and has a better place for your edit. I won't spoonfeed so much and tell you where though. This and the civil rights category, that IMO shouldn't be added. GeeJayK (talk) 03:11, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

That doesn't justify Plutocow being an intolerant fascist. He should be permanently banned from the wiki. Also, can you please make me an administrator?? Thanks!!! Unclescrooge (talk) 04:00, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
@Plutocow was the one that paroled you when you asked to, if you have a problem with them, I think you should just talk to them before calling them fascist, which is never civil or productive. Regarding your request about becoming a sysop, I can't, you'll need to be autopatrolled first, and to be autopatrolled you'll need to leave the vandal bin, and to leave the vandal bin you'll have to engage into talk pages discussions when people disagree with you and don't shitpost. GeeJayK (talk) 04:07, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

Ahem[edit]

Did you see that I had pinged you here? Thanks. UShistoryanalyzer (talk) 03:07, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

Why was I blocked???????????[edit]

  1. Analyzing and refuting pseudoscience and the anti-science movement"

The SMG debate I started is literally about refuting pseudoscience, so it makes no sense for you to block me over it. Unclescrooge (talk) 21:03, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

Pinging someone more times isn’t going to help them see it, at a certain point it actually prevents them from getting a notification.
You were blocked for this, it’s an annoying habit to the point that it was a condition of your (short lived) parole from the vandal bin. Stop it. Christopher (talk) 21:06, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
(EC) Spud blocked you because of this. Though I doubt he blocked you only because of one edit, he probably took into account a few other shitposts of yours. I understand you're trying to be funny and snarky, but ATIM is a more serious place and you shouldn't do this, especially when you're on the vandal bin. GeeJayK (talk) 21:10, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
But why does Spud have to be such an intolerant fascist????????? Unclescrooge (talk) 22:38, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
I don't think calling a very right-minded and easy going mod a fascist will do good to your cause. He blocked you because you violated the paroles conditions yet again, it's not hard to understand. GeeJayK (talk) 22:44, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Christopher and GeeJayK are right about everything. If you keep up this trollish behaviour, you'll be looking at a much longer block than 3 days. Spud (talk) 02:56, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
And maybe even coop-banned. Kevs Ping! 08:25, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
Are you and Spud trying to one-up each other to see who's the most fascist on this site or something??? I thought most people don't openly admit to being sadists, but I guess you guys are the exception????? Unclescrooge (talk) 21:04, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
Given the distinct lack of rhetoric about a national/cultural rebirth, I hardly think the word "fascist" applies here. Do keep abusing Godwin's law though, it makes you look like a twelve year old and makes everyone less inclined to assist you. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:11, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
LOL, if you think I'm abusing Godwin's law, I'm only following the example set by this site, which labels Candace Owens as a fascist. Haven't you ever heard of irony, comrade????????? Unclescrooge (talk) 21:37, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
So you're misusing terminology and acting like a troll solely because a grifter you like had a category you disagree with? A category I might add that I have removed? I take it back, you act not like a twelve year old but instead more like a five year old. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 22:01, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
Also scrooge, responding to a charge like this (calling Spud and apparently Kevlarstar fascists) by saying "oh but look what you did" is not a valid argument. You called Spud a fascist, it was pointed out you were wrong and...you brought up something tangentially related.-Flandres (talk) 22:28, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Troll videos in the Saloon[edit]

Stop putting troll videos in the Saloon. There is an actual problem with videos in the Saloon because excessive numbers of them cause system slowdown. Bongolian (talk) 20:49, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Just because you don't understand humor doesn't justify editing my comment like that. Also, I was about to add some content to Draft:Red Eagle Politics, yet here you go blocking me again because your feelings are hurt??? Why are users like you and Spud often so pathetic??? Unclescrooge (talk) 20:53, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
If the video is causing technical issues I don’t see anything wrong with editing the comment. Doesn’t justify a block though. Christopher (talk) 21:08, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
I agree that Scrooge in this case didn't act in bad faith but was just unaware of the technical issues and a block is too much. But I think you should ask before just reverting edits too. Edit wars never end up in a good way. Like, maybe there was a reason why people edited your post.... GeeJayK (talk) 21:15, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Tip[edit]

Before reverting, try to talk to the user on the talk page. Avoid at any costs edit wars. GeeJayK (talk) 16:13, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Or just don’t revert at all. Your WIGO entry was downvoted considerably, it’s not unreasonable to remove it. If you keep getting into these fights people will get more annoyed with you and you’ll spend half your time blocked. Christopher (talk) 16:15, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, this too. Not everyone here is like Christopher and me, some users have a lot less patience. GeeJayK (talk) 16:20, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Unclescrooge, I reverted your drama-stirring attempt in the Chicken Coop. If you really want more drama related to such a petty short-term personal squabble, you can post something on the moderator noticeboard instead, but I don't think you'll end up liking the general response (unless you're looking to make people express dislike towards you). --ApooftGnegiol (talk) 16:52, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for moving it, ApooftGnegiol. It's on ATIM right now. GeeJayK (talk) 17:20, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Liberalism[edit]

You know Liberalism is centrist right?.. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:18, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

<facepalm/> Why do you sometimes bonk your head against the wall so much???????????????????????????????????
Wall.gif
Unclescrooge (talk) 20:50, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
So you're admitting that you neither know nor care about proper political classifications? I see, I'll be sure to point and laugh at you next time instead of treating you as if you were engaging in good faith. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:17, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Please remove me from Room 101!!!!![edit]

@Sirius @Hastur @Ace McWicked @GrammarCommie @Christopher @GeeJayK Can someone please remove my block and parole me from the vandal bin??? I really need to create some pages on the Prankster Comets from SMG. Thanks!!!!!!! Unclescrooge (talk) 20:33, 14 May 2021 (UTC)

I’ve undone a lot of your blocks, but this one was justified. I’m beginning to lose patience with you, once I have lost it I imagine you’ll spend a lot more time blocked. If you want to write an article, I suggest you draft it off-wiki or make heavy use of the preview button to get around the vandal bin. Christopher (talk) 20:45, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
You beg more, your blocks will be extended. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 20:53, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
The beatings will continue until morale improves. Gangster Computer God (talk) 20:57, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
You should give us a reason. Why should we trust you? 3 days ain't a long block, work on your drafts (I'd suggest you to focus on the Read Eagle one) and then ask again. GeeJayK (talk) 21:09, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
[EC]I was willing to let the extended blocks slide, but I see GeeJayK has taken up the mantle. Eventually he’ll also get tired of siding with a boring troll over productive members of the community, you’ll be blocked for 3 months again and everyone will look the other way. Christopher (talk) 21:12, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
I stand by my decision, though I probably should have made it a mere 24 hours. Trolling talkpages and the saloon is one thing, but stuff like the WIGOs and mainspace are off limits to that sort of behavior. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 22:28, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
I echo Marquee's statement about morale and GCs statement as per reasoning. Also, you deliberately vandalized the wiki. Also a stupid joke response suggesting you'd vandalize the site even more isn't doing you any favors. Go outside for a bit, talk with some people, make some friends! Spend some time away from this site you seem to really want to make 1984 allegations for. Techpriest (talk) 00:17, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────This person's plea to get out of the bin and ban is because they want to "create some pages on the Prankster Comets from SMG". I had no idea what hell they were referring to, and a quick search shows that it has something to do with a video game. This completely and totally disregards the mission of this site. There are several super mario wikis out there and this is not one of them. The community here has bent over backwards appeasing and tolerating this user, and yet they seem completely oblivious to everything that's been communicated to them. They're either oblivious, or a stupid little troll. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 00:39, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

What did I do wrong to get blocked for 3.6 days??????[edit]

Also @GrammarCommie, I didn't say that anti-Zionism is equatable to anti-Semitism here (although it's technically a form of anti-Semitism). Why can't I mention the fact that Fuentes is anti-Zionist? Why are you so lame????????????????????????????? Unclescrooge (talk) 15:17, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

Note - @Marquee Moon blocked you. --Gale5050 (talk) 15:24, 26 May 2021 (UTC)
Anti-Zionism is only antisemitic insofar as there are antisemtites who oppose Jewish Nationalism, due to being antisemites. If one were to oppose all forms of nationalism, one would in fact logically take a position of anti-Zionism but, due to the underlying motivators and reasoning, not in fact be an antisemite. Etc, etc, etc... As for the page, I deleted the description of him as an antisemite and a white supremacist in the introduction, mainly because he's a Neo-Nazi. These sorts of things should really go without saying, or be elaborated on in the body of the article. (Preferably beyond shitty bullet points.) ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:55, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

Notification:Blocked by Bongolian[edit]

You have been blocked, for 1 hour

The reason for your block will be provided with this template. We don't care apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Your block time has been calculated using either RationalWiki's fibonacci sequence blocking policy or some random number of digits of pi, taking into account the nature of your transgression and your previous block record.


--Gale5050 (talk) 00:26, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

It appears you were blocked for disruptive editing relating to your previous ban. --Gale5050 (talk) 00:31, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
You are now unblocked. Please stop your disruption. --Gale5050 (talk) 01:16, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
He won't. We're all giving this user far too many chances at this point. Let's make a list. What did he do? Poor quality edits that are borderline vandalism, make a frivolous chicken coop after being petty blocked for a week, motion to permaban a user in Chicken Coop for a petty block, spam Saloon Bar that irritated even Hastur, get quickly booted off Discord, ban evaded after getting kicked off Discord, create useless stubs that are borderline vandalism, constantly harass mods (ping spam) to be removed from vandal bin, quickly break terms and conditions to immediately get back in vandal bin, spam with disruptive giant GIFs in response, accuse others of "voter fraud" and "fascism" when getting muzzled for violations, writes in spammy punctuation as cherry on top. Does this seem like a user we should keep around for the long term? Any of the pettiest blocks on him is justified at this point. Don't break your back bending backward. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 04:45, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
He's not even a funny troll, which is sad. He's just mildly annoying and extremely unoriginal. 主要行事月 (talk) 12:27, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
Perhaps a trip to the vandal bin? I'll try that, feel free to parole if you think it is not appropriate though. --Gale5050 (talk) 14:34, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
Nvm, already vandal binned. --Gale5050 (talk) 14:36, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
In his defence, alleged Discord behaviour doesn't matter. Has his on wiki actions justified being binned? Harry Potter (talk) 15:53, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
The only consequence of his discord behaviour was getting banned from the discord server, he was binned before he showed up there. Christopher (talk) 15:55, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
@Harry Potter I suggest that you read LeftyGreenMario's paragraph above. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 15:56, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
The Discord, to be clear, is just supporting background information. He got blocked here, acted disruptive in Discord, got kicked quickly off the servers for similar behavior here, and tried to rereg while still blocked to complain about it. Just to let you know the behavior is constant and was technically another chance. I'll ask, is this is the kind of user you want to accommodate? I don't think he's worth it. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 21:04, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
Why do you act like you're the RW version of Kowardjerk????? Are you one of those sadists/masochists who get a high out of smashing block buttons?????? Unclescrooge (talk) 21:10, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
Blocked again for 1 hour, please stop, this is exactly whats landing you here in the first place. --Gale5050 (talk) 21:14, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I'd say yes, and also say if they need to be blocked again it should be 3.14 weeks/22 days due to repeated disruption.-- Gale5050 (talk) 21:07, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

It definitely says something that the first thing he did after a three month block was continue to do what resulted in his block in the first place. Plutocow (talk) 22:42, 10 September 2021 (UTC)
