Hi there, enjoy etc. AceLiquid Room 05:57, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Darn! Ace beat me by a microsecond! Oh well..... Welcome! Conservative Punk (talk) 05:57, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks guys, much more impressive than Wkipedia's welcoming. WSC (talk) 06:14, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
Much more impressive than wikipedia!

When writing a new article...[edit]

...please make sure there are at least a few wiki-links to other articles in the new one, and that other articles link to the new one. You gotta find other mentions of the Westlothian Question and link those to the article you just wrote, and link them to the new one. Thanks!P-Foster (talk) 21:59, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

I spotted this on RationalWiki:To do list so I thought you guys wanted an article on it and figured I knew enough to at least give this a bash. Don't worry I can add a few links. WSC (talk) 22:11, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm so depressed, and so should you be.[edit]

You've been doing some pretty good stuff over the past twenty days or so. Your punishment for this is a deeply unsatisfying increase in powers through the magic of demotion. Our depressing Sysop Guide will add to your sense of dread and be as intellectually fulfilling as being trapped in a lift at a Dan Brown/Hannah Montana convention.

Oh My, what a dishonour, demoted already and I haven't even been blocked yet. I wonder if other wikis are quite this quick to give mops to newbies? WSC (talk) 00:53, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Probably not, but be glad you're one of 9,999,999 in a million who made the cut. It's actually pretty handy having an army of janitors around, and I feel oddly underpowered at Wikipedia and Wikia. Concernedresident omg!!! ponies!!! 01:07, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Jeesh those are impressive statistics, hats off to whoever calculated that and worked out that 1 in a million have 9 rather than the usual 10 accounts. WSC (talk) 11:03, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Verily I suck at proofreading my posts. Seriously though, nice to have you around. You make the stuff good yes. CR 62.40.36.13 (talk) 19:25, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks that's very sweet of you. I'm conscious that I need to get out some books and go back and add loads of footnotes. But its great to be here and I have to say I'm beginning to feel at home - even though I've not grokked the house style yet. WSC (talk) 19:30, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
The balance between fact and snark can be fiddly, but ask away if you've written something that you're unsure about. Armondikov is a fairly good person to emulate for the more serious stuff. Psygremlin is is good at the writing and funnies. Generally though if you've done something very wrong you'd hear about it pretty sharpish. It's not a big concern though given that an article can be fixed as long as there's a shiny diamond in the shit. CR 62.40.36.13 (talk) 19:39, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Really?[edit]

Really? Was it like "Urr are my besht-ist freid... now, thre's thisss webshite..." Beer.gif Scarlet A.pngd hominem 15:26, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

Well not quite like that, this was more one of those civilised drinking establishments where the focus is on conversation, not on getting drunk; I'd probably only had three myself. But otherwise, yes really and truthfully. WSC (talk) 21:13, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
I can see the conversation now:
Righ', righ' theresh thish shite righ'? Righ'? An' itsh... an' itsh Rashshunal."
"Itsh whut?"
"Whut?"
"You jusht shed shomshing abou' it bein' rashshunal."
"Nah. Never. C'mon itsh your round." --PsyGremlinPrata! 21:19, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
