About my "Shit-ton" of sub pages

I really don't see what the problem with having an assload of subpages is. The editing pages even say I can use it to my leisure, so I don't suppose I'm breaking some sort of newfangled editing rule... am I? My answer to your question is that I am so lazy when it comes to typing a, pardon my restatement, shit-ton of "html-wiki" markup, that I'd rather have a shit-ton of subpages to make my life easier. Because it's way easier to type "{{User:B1KWikis/SF|YES|150|center}}" than it is to type "<div style="width:100%; height:100%;"><div style="font-family:Times New Roman, 'Meiryo UI', 'Kozuka Gothic Pro EL', 'Kozuka Mincho Pro EL', 'Arial Unicode MS', 'Segoe UI Symbol', 'MS Mincho', 'DejaVu Sans', Code2000, 'Y.OzFont', 'Everson Mono Unicode'; font-size: 150px;line-height:1em;text-align: center">YES</div> </div>" I mean jesus christ that's a lot of typing to remember.

I hope I answered your question

- B1KStuff

You aren't breaking any rules at all, you know, but you show up in Special:RecentChanges so often I'm inclined to ask. When you make a lot of edits, they do pop up somewhere.
Anyway, I find it weird that you have so many subpages and templates but your signature is still subst'd. You might want to read UN:SIG; not only is your signature too big height-wise, but wikimarkup wise it is pretty enormous as well.
I make the code as an insurance policy, so that when I have to type in big text, I don't have to tear my hair out looking for a page with that markup, I can just type in the subpage
At any rate, you didn't really answer my question. You said they were shortcuts to typing out longer amounts of code, but what is that code for in the first place? And I can't honestly see a use for, say, "the largest text ever". It's not meant as an affront to you, but it's just got my curiosity about what you're doing here on this site. If you wanted to test out markup rather than edit the wiki, why not just install a personal wiki on your home computer instead? I'm just confused.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 20:40 May 31, 2011
Okay, I'll reduce the size, but The signature thing automatically puts that, I honestly don't even know why it does that. I do put ~~~~ into the code. Whatever it is, I'll fix it.
What do you mean "personal wiki on my home computer"? I don't spend my life on it so that would be a waste of time and energy. - B1KStuff
What I mean is, you seem to be here not to edit the wiki itself, but to test wikisyntax in your personal space. Am I correct in that?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 21:16 May 31, 2011

I'm being BULLIED

Lyrithya and Ljlego are bullying me. They are vandalizing my userpages and protecting them. --Maple leaf >> Hello, my name is Sir Lollipop, and I am Canadian! 02:25, 1 June 2011

Oh dear. Have you tried not using font tags?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 02:28 Jun 01, 2011
I don't know what you're talking about. Maybe you also don't know how to use the edit button.~~ Sir Ljlego, GUN  [talk] 02:29, June 1, 2011 (UTC)
Maybe you don't know how to properly click the protect tab. --Maple leaf >> Hello, my name is Sir Lollipop, and I am Canadian! 02:32, 1 June 2011
I sorta got an apology from Ljlego, but Lyrithya is bullying me. --Maple leaf >> Hello, my name is Sir Lollipop, and I am Canadian! 02:34, 1 June 2011
I wouldn't worry about it. It's just her way of trying to win UGotM. Sad, really.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 02:36 Jun 01, 2011
She should probably win Useless Gobshite of Eternity. --Maple leaf >> Hello, my name is Sir Lollipop, and I am Canadian! 02:42, 1 June 2011


The joke block log entry you made? In that BHOP forum, where I jokingly claimed to have been "silenced". Well, Ljlego deleted that forum topic, and the only word in his deletion summary is "silence". When I asked him why he'd deleted my forum entry on his talkpage, he didn't respond (the "Fascist" bit was a joke, just so you know). Could you please ask him why he decided to delete my forum topic, because given that this was in BHOP, I don't think I did anything wrong while posting it. I'm taking this matter to you as Ljlego hasn't responded to my complaint for almost a day now. --Scofield & Dudes 06:01, June 2, 2011 (UTC)

Restored. Prepare for an epic admin revert war that will undoubtedly tear wikifriends apart.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 06:04 Jun 02, 2011
Thanks, dude. You might want to place it back on the BHOP index too. --Scofield & Dudes 06:08, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
It is already. Are you fucking blind or something?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 06:12 Jun 02, 2011
Hey, hey calm down. Lol. What's that fleshy thing I touch? It feels like balls, though I cannot be sure..... --Scofield & Dudes 06:17, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
No no no, balls is what you suck, you cockmunching peabrained sunuva IP.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 06:18 Jun 02, 2011
If I'm a sunuva IP, then you're a sunuva IP! EVERYBODY's a sunuva IP! You wouldn't even have an account if it wasn't for your IP! Most people are so ungrateful for having IPs, but not you. Not anymore. --Scofield & Dudes 06:28, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
I don't use my IP. I edit with my mind.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 06:31 Jun 02, 2011
Oooooh, do you block with your mind too? Aaaaaaah! --Scofield & Dudes 07:57, June 2, 2011 (UTC)

Bot restoring {{subcat}}

Hypothetically, if I were to bot replace [[Category:Category name]] with {{subcat|Category name}}, how would I go about doing that with AWB? --Mn-z 01:03, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

First, you'd have to learn regex, and then you'd get banned for essentially getting into a revert war spanning hundreds of pages.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:17 Jun 05, 2011
It's not a revert war until I revert a revert, and it would involve thousands, not merely hundreds, of pages. At any rate, it looks like Lyrithya haz consensus. --Mn-z 02:09, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
Indeed. But yeah, learn regex. It's helpful.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 02:10 Jun 05, 2011
Do you have links to any sources that show how to use it? --Mn-z 02:15, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
How about this one?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 02:28 Jun 05, 2011
...Just wandering past. I thought you could do find & replace in AWB without needing regex. It does have a find replace feature. Perhaps I dreamt the whole thing. Forgot I was ever here... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 22:46, Jun 9
You can, but standard find and replace isn't very good at, say, yanking a parameter from a template and sticking it somewhere else (in this case, a category). Regular expressions, on the other hand, are just dandy for that.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:09 Jun 09, 2011

You forgot to close my (unnecessary because not serious and admittedly annoying if you didn't find it funny) VFH nomination of that article which has been clogging up VFH ever since. Schamschi, 23:18, June 6, 2011 (UTC)

I was just being lazy and hoping somebody else would do it. But I'll do it!  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:21 Jun 06, 2011
Wow, Mrthejazz' Don’t some work (or/and its recent VFH nomination), which, for some inexplicable reason, has a "right single quotation mark" instead of an apostrophe in the contraction in its title, seems to have an effect on people. Don't think that I care whether the nomination would have continued to exist or not, I just thought it might be good for maintenance. In fact, come to think of it, it would be interesting to see a deleted article featured on the Main Page. I believe this hasn't been done before? Schamschi, 23:33, June 6, 2011 (UTC)
I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to say about Don't some work (though the nomination is really annoying with the apostrophe, and the fact that Fnoodle managed to handle it is pretty cool, I think) but yes, it's interesting for two reasons: one, it brings up the old discussion of "is vanity too alienating or can it be funny sometimes?", and two, it's a rather scathing parody of someone whose opinions used to be the most prominent on the site way back when, so it shows that we've finally "grown out" of that era.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:48 Jun 06, 2011
I was just (jokingly) referring to the fact that you were too lazy to close the VFH nomination, thereby not doing an amount of work. Also, I must admit that, while I have read the original article, I have not studied in detail looked at any of the changes Famine made to the Accordion article or the state it had been in before Famine edited it, so I cannot really talk about what Famine actually meant, although the idea that putting work into an article is good doesn't sound bad to me per se... and what does Do/Don't some work have to do with vanity?
Also, speaking of work: A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon your story UnBooks:The Frogs, and, believe it or not, I actually read it, and I must say, I'm impressed. I didn't really find it funny, but I think that this hardly matters, because I enjoyed it, funny or not. I didn't quite understand why Osiris needed frogs, or maybe I just can't remember, I don't know, and I didn't get the part at the end where the elevator leaves a gap in the room, but I'm glad I've read it, and I suppose you put some work into it... Pity the sequel seems to have died or something. Schamschi, 00:28, June 7, 2011 (UTC)
Frogs is actually absolutely, unforgivably terrible compared the stuff I've written lately. Same goes for the sequel. It's really childish, the entire thing. I guess I can't really hate it, since everything I write just helps me figure out how to write better in the future, but still, yeesh. It was also written during a very angsty time of my life, which didn't help matters.
Speaking of terrible things, so is Accordion. Famine had a lot of opinions but humor-wise he fell pretty well flat. And anyway, vanity was the wrong word, you're right. I meant "in-joke". Apparently I can't type today.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 00:39 Jun 07, 2011
Eh, Accordion was a lot worse before Spike gave it a go-over. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 00:48, 7 June 2011
I was referring to the pre-SPIKE edit, which is how I remember it. I didn't realize SPIKE did anything to it.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:04 Jun 07, 2011
Well, I haven't read any of your other stuff except for your article huffing forum, the 10 reasons to defrost Frosty, and, as I just discovered by looking at your user page, the Ode to the Monotony of Life (for some reason I had been under the impression that this article was written by Thekillerfroggy). I found that the article huffing forum was starting out hilarious, but seemed to drag on a bit towards the end, the 10 reasons list was slightly chuckle-worthy but not too great in my opinion (wtf, this got featured? So much for in-jokery. Oh dear, this place is really going to the frogs dogs), and the monotony ode was excellent (and funny). HowTo:Rob A Bank With Your Penis sounds interesting, though, I might have a look at that. And about the Frogs: I think what you describe as "terrible" might be the fact that not really everything wraps up, or at least I got that impression. I found most of the ideas contained in it really good, but some of them didn't really seem to have their place in the story, they were just there and could just as well not have been, for instance the part at the beginning where the first guy (don't remember his name) dies and that woman appears to him, saying that she is his death, and that everyone's death looks different. I like that idea, but it's just that — an idea, not really integrated into the story. Or the old dude with the blender (Charon?), he is also rather dispensable. But the fact remains that it is well written, so yeah (or yeesh or whatever). Also, say hello to Fnoodle from me. Schamschi, 01:44, June 7, 2011 (UTC)
"Article huffing" was written (and I do use the phrase lightly here) with the intent of taking up as much space as possible in as little time as possible, since anyone could have chosen to edit conflict me at any time and ruined the joke. "10 Reasons to Defrost Frosty" was purposefully horrible because it was a jab at his similarly terrible listy articles about users in his userspace. And I'm not saying it was horrible just to cover my butt, here, it wasn't supposed to be anything. The joke is really that it got featured. So you've basically read the two things that were a) written under time pressure and b) supposed to be unfunny. Monotony, while also very old, is at least some of my actual writing.
As for the plot threads, Frogs was actually the beginning of a trilogy of short stories, most of the things you've mentioned there were picked up in the second one. But really, I'm not going to defend it more than just that. It's old, it's loosely plotted, and while it has its clever bits the overall presentation leaves much to be desired in comparison to the stuff I try to write today. I'll have to get Amadeus Winds a Watch in some sort of readable order if you want to read something actually recent.
What with having three authors and all I can't say I contributed much to the bank article but, well, there you go.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:52 Jun 07, 2011

Hey Skully,

Sannse says it works now. --Tophat headless 20:37, June 7, 2011 (UTC)


[1] You should do something about that or something. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:36, 9 June 2011

Huh, that's weird. He's made to resolve redirects, and he's managed to do so on a number of occasions. Wonder why he stopped.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 05:47 Jun 09, 2011
Well, I ran a few tests, and the only conclusion I could make is that the API was somehow lagging behind, as he resolves the redirect perfectly now. I did add in another check, though, to see if #REDIRECT exists on the page, so this doubly shouldn't happen.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 05:58 Jun 09, 2011

Could you...

Protect all the pages of UnBooks:Let's take a walk in the city!? Seeing as they're all technically featured articles, and could still suffer from article rot. Thanks. --Tophat headless 22:02, June 9, 2011 (UTC)

The modification I just made to the protection script should have done so, but seeing as they didn't, this article is officially my testbed. Muhaha!  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:04 Jun 09, 2011
Oh wow, did I ever make a dumb mistake. Think I fixed it though. If I did, this article's subpages should be semiprotected in the next few minutes or so. If I didn't, well, you know where the shelter is.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:13 Jun 09, 2011

In case you haven't noticed

You have a redlink category on your talk-page. --Mn-z 22:16, June 9, 2011 (UTC)

I know. It was to prove a point. Sadly, the point was not proven.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:16 Jun 09, 2011
What is the point? --Mn-z 22:18, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
I was under the mistaken impression that a category added to a page's talkpage could somehow list the actual page rather than the talkpage on category pages. Would've been useful for maintenance templates. Alas.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:21 Jun 09, 2011

Fnoodle has a new homework assignment

Something has got to be done about Special:LonelyPages. They are a pretty big oversight and a pretty big bad thing to have, since all unlinked articles only show up on random, or to their lone authors who most likely gave up caring long ago too, so it's a big maintenance thing we oughta pay attention to fixing. The problem is that right now it's absolutely cluttered completely with UnNewses. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 01:43, June 11, 2011 (UTC)

mmkay. So what do you want my bot to do about it?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:46 Jun 11, 2011
Make a big page in his userspace where he links to all of them or something i dunno you figure it out --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 01:48, June 11, 2011 (UTC)
So then the list would be... empty? But the pages would still not be legitimately linked to. So I'm not sure where you're going with this.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:50 Jun 11, 2011
Or you could take the first page in the list and add a link to the second one. Then you insert a link into the second page pointing to the third one, etc. Schamschi, 01:54, June 11, 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure how any of this would actually solve the problem of a lack of legitimate links to these articles.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:55 Jun 11, 2011
(That was the joke, at least in my suggestion). Actually, I don't get it either. It seems to me that the only way to solve this problem besides huffing all the articles in the list is to look for articles where links to the orphaned pages could be inserted, which is hardly something a bot could do (unless it's a super-intelligent bot). Maybe TKF's announcement of a new homework assignment for Fnoodle was a joke in the first place. Schamschi, 02:03, June 11, 2011 (UTC)
No. What you can do is add all of them to a page, which would take a long time for a human to link, then a human like myself could preen out the few non-UnNews articles out of the bunch so they go back on the Special page, while all the archived UnNews remain linked. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 02:30, June 11, 2011 (UTC)
Or we could just delete everything in Category:UnNews archives.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 02:38 Jun 11, 2011

Thanks for the vote on VFH!

Thank you for voting on my article HowTo:Face your upcoming death! I heard people send out message to people who voted for them as a sign of thanks. I would try personalizing this message instead of copying and pasting it into everyone's talk page, but I'm lazy. I once tried to save time by putting on my clothes while taking a shower. Didn't work.--White Toaster Talk - Contributions 12:13, June 12, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, anytime (you write a good article and it's nominated for VFH and I'm actually online)! Yes, people used to give VFH thanks messages all the time. Not so much anymore I'm afraid. You're making me nostalgia.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 17:29 Jun 12, 2011


I wasn't paying attention. To what, exactly, were you referring? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 08:34, 13 June 2011

Sorry, I've slept since then. To what, exactly, are you referring?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 14:44 Jun 13, 2011
I don't know. Do you? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:36, 14 June 2011


That image was displayed on my user page. It was done with a link rather than be posted there directly so I could display the animation. I did not know that the gif animation feature had been restored. Can I please have it back? --Naughtius Maximus Leaf F@H Woof!Za slice MeowMUN 22:14, June 14, 2011 (UTC)

Whoopsers. Restored, and I put a {{notorphan}} on it so it won't get mistakenly deleted again. Sorry about that!  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:19 Jun 14, 2011
Wow, what a user page. Good work Naughtyned. Aleister 23:34 14-6-'11

Thanks for the help and great advice. I must explain that there is probably an entire section of my brain that is tuned differently than most peoples. Most math I had in school was Algerbra, and it took me two years and two summer school sessions to pass it with a D. I can't diagram sentences, and they gave up on me on that in school because labeling words as parts of speech makes no sense to me (seriously). Computer talk and programming, codes, etc. falls within there somewhat, although not as serious as the math, etc. Which is why I've never studied it closely, and that's where my problem with it comes from. Your kind leading-me-by-the-hand approach is appreciated (again, seriously). Thanks. Aleister 23:40 14-6-'11

Sure thing! Sorry it took me so long to reply, I was busy with Fnoodle stuff and got sidetracked for most of yesterday. But yes, anytime. And I appreciate that you've taken the time to read what I say, too, cuz knowing what a browser is is pretty important and all. So go us ^_^  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 18:48 Jun 15, 2011


Can you help me? the first phrase of the Matt snow blurb is buggn me. It needs more words to help with the flow. It is uneditable by me I am presently on IRC and no ops are answering. --K evillips эвилипс MUN,CM,NS,3of7 18:44, June 15, 2011 (UTC)


You seem like a self appointed expert and I thought up an idea. You know you discourage the use of <center>BLAH BLAH BLAH</center> and instead encourage <div style="text-align:center;">BLAH BLAH BLAH</div>. Well I think and have noticed the center tag is still being used for one simple reason: PEOPLE ARE LAZY, <center> is simpler to the alternative.

So this got me thinking, is there another simple way to do it? I think so. User:Frosty/center, check it out. It auto-centers texts using a template and holds two major advantages:

  1. Laziness is no longer an excuse, its easy to remember and does the job.
  2. If HTML convensions ever change, one edit will fix hundreds of pages in one go, rather than individually find them all and fixing them one by one, which takes ages.

So what you think? --Snowman111 Butlerstar Frosty dah snowguy contribs KUN PLEB Big GREEN Button Big red button 05:23, June 18, 2011 (UTC)

I like! So far, anyway. You/I/we'd still need to solve a few more issues first - <center> centers a few elements that aren't text too, like tables and images. Kind of a shame it's deprecated, almost.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 15:40 Jun 19, 2011
Mmmmm, what are your main issues? --Snowman111 Butlerstar Frosty dah snowguy contribs KUN PLEB Big GREEN Button Big red button 08:41, June 20, 2011 (UTC)
I guess we'd have to wrap more stuff around it to get it to truly act like <center>. I'd just have to work out what that stuff is.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:10 Jun 21, 2011

You lied.

Or were wrong or some such, anyhow.

Gradients don't work with IE. Not the IE I'm using right now, anyhow. Which is the stable one. 8. Relatively stable. Less stupid than 9, anyhow. That one broke as much as this one fixed, apparently. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:44, 18 June 2011

Friggin' frig this frig. I distinctly remember getting gradients working in IE, and yet, I opened my userpage in IE8 to a gray background. Maybe it was just a dream.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 15:37 Jun 19, 2011

Mate (as every Aussie would say)

I am considering that we should rally for reform in Uncyclopedia. Currently, the bureaucratic system is shit. And regarding the "SubSpaces" thing or whatever you like to call it, we need a simpler, easy-to-understand-by-an-idiot version. Put simply, the simpler the system, the better it is.

I hold no responsibility for any dicks blown off by your sheer awesomeness for voting for this. --Lock'd And Loaded ~CUN ~ (Shoot!) 07:27, June 21, 2011 (UTC)


Ok, I have no idea what grudge you have against me, ever kicking me out for stuff nearly everybody so rampantly does and being so cold attitude wise nearly every time, or why you are so sure I won't try and dodge the ban again and succeed (which I don't want to do anymore because I respect you, even though you probably don't care for nOObs who know nothing and are annoyingly interrogative) but seriously tell me. I asked you about the IRC client thing you didn't respond, I asked you about the Opera thing you didn't respond. I'm not asking to be friends with you and grow old flying kites or anything, but seriously. Shit, I still am using a web client and don't even know the name of any client because you admins just wouldn't answer on IRC when asked about things. My nick too irritating? My writing? What? --Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 21:28, June 25, 2011 (UTC)

I had you on /ignore, and thus didn't hear these questions. /ignore-ing a user is perfectly common practice on IRC when you find another user irritating.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 21:30 Jun 25, 2011
Oh. Never knew that. If by irritating you mean pinging people and asking too many questions, then I guess I don't really care, it's purely your choice to do that. And yeah, btw, I only pinged the people who I talk to and who I was sure wouldn't be irritated by it, well except maybe Chief, but I just needed to ask him something. Anywho, now that you know why I said what made you ban me in the first place, will you remove it? --Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 21:44, June 25, 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, what ban?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 21:46 Jun 25, 2011
If that's a smart way of saying you have already removed the ban then I guess it hasn't worked because I am still unable to join. The ban on IRC.--Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 21:57, June 25, 2011 (UTC)
And I just edit conflicted with myself, fuck! Nevermind--Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 22:02, June 25, 2011 (UTC)
I did find a matching ban in the ban log, however, after a quick poll of the active users on IRC there is a strong consensus not to lift said ban.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:05 Jun 25, 2011
Ok so you mean to say you did not make that ban and just happened to have found it. But how does that matter it's IRC? If a poll were to hold to keep the bans on people on IRC, then polls should be conducted to ban people from IRC in the first place too. And the very command /ignore really makes poll on keeping bans a moot point because they can just ignore the said user whenever they want. And it's not like I want to invite them all for a sunday brunch or something, I need IRC for discussions on articles which I don't think the said users very much care about. So again, can you lift the ban which /you/ put based on a non existent reason?(as you had me on /ignore)--Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 22:11, June 25, 2011 (UTC)
No, you don't. You use IRC to bug and bother and pester people for help, and every time after you leave there's a sudden explosion of activity from a half-dozen users that have been holding their breath until you /part.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:13 Jun 25, 2011
Hmm..Hmm. Ok. So you are saying, a new user tries to do something, maybe edit a picture or change a skin or whatever, and he comes to IRC asking for help, he puts up the question, and he's got absolutely no help off Google or anything, he waits. Nobody answers, he's still in the middle of what he's doing and can't proceed without any assistance, but nobody still doesn't answer. He asks for a couple of times and then leaves (which I stopped doing a long long time ago as now I only ask specific someone). Then the users start chattering about how they were holding their breaths because of how irritating that guy was? And you're saying it's my fault? For asking for help? And it's not like I am asking about how to save a page. Only when there is a real query do I look for help in IRC. And are you saying these users are right in what they're doing, holding back when a new user is asking for help and talking as soon as he leaves? And bug bother pester is really an over statement as I only ping specific people when asking for help. I stopped shooting out questions to anybody who would care to answer because that's just 'irritating' long ago. --Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 22:30, June 25, 2011 (UTC)
Being new is never an excuse to be irritating.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:33 Jun 25, 2011
But what comes across as irritating to people is never directed towards them in the first place, so why do they even look at it? Apart from asking too many questions, which I again say I don't anymore and if I do I always ping, anything else you find irritating?--Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 22:39, June 25, 2011 (UTC)
You are, in short, the absolute neediest user I have ever come across on this site. When you aren't pestering people for help (and subsequently berating them for not taking the time required to stuff a concept into your puny little skull), you are requesting that people create conversation for you or amuse you, you derail conversations in progress, you repeatedly ragequit IRC for reasons largely unknown, react to the slightest criticism with such malice no one wants to converse with you, and whatever else you've managed to do to convince five people to jump up and shout "no" the moment I ask if I ought to remove you from the banlist.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:42 Jun 25, 2011
Ok, the needy user part I get. Which I have long stopped doing. Same with the berating them for not taking the time, namely the Lyrithya fiasco(which was only one time).. Which I very well apologized for and have long stopped doing. But potential reasons for me coming across as annoying really come to a halt there. That was the first..ragequit?, I ever did and never have I taken ill to any criticism. Well if you don't count "It's Unnews it isn't supposed to be on the front page" as criticism that is. Again, only one instance. Ok. You be there, nevermind the 5 people who shouted no for removing me from the banlist because not everybody likes everybody you know, you unban me and be there. If ever I do which comes across as annoying to you, all of which I am now willing to shout off the top of the Eiffel Tower I have stopped doing, you ban me from Uncyc for a day, or whatever time you feel like. And if there's something I haven't stopped doing still, I won't do it now. What do you say to that? P.S. Again I have no particular intent to be on the IRC again but I need it for what it was made for, constructive discussion. --Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 23:00, June 25, 2011 (UTC)
And if you in anyway feel that I purposefully derail conversations or request people to create conversations, I apologize for that, not because I want the ban removed but because that's not right and will make it a point to not do it again. --Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 23:31, June 25, 2011 (UTC)
PoopManPoop, IRC is there for users looking for help when they're stuck. If you've encountered something on the Wiki and have tried working around it until you are completely out of options and are still stuck, please ask on IRC - that's what it's there for, and the people online will be helpful if you politely state your problem and what you've tried that doesn't work. IRC is not for questions like, for example, "where's so-and-so's article that he's working on?": IRC is not the place to ask for a shortcut to something so you can save time or because you need results now. If you want an article reviewed, put it on PR. If you need that feedback now, you can ask on IRC, but if no one wants to do it, don't bug them; run the article out into the open and let it get reviewed on the fly. If it fails, pull it back in and use that as your feedback; this is a Wiki, no matter how shitty your article is, there is one or thirty out there that are even worse. So don't worry. As for socially, if nothing's happening on IRC, then nothing's happening on IRC. It's okay. It's like the lounge in the apartment building where everyone's chill with each other; sometimes people have cards out and are playing Nertz, the radio is going and everyone's talking. Sometimes you go in and it's just a few people sitting there, reading. You can bust in and try starting something, but if no one responds then oh well. Rule #52 from TheHumbucker's Rules of Thumb: "Only be on IRC if you're also doing something else." Doing something else too is a) more productive than staring at text dropping down in a chat window, and b) Gives you something to do when things aren't popping on the channel, which makes you less likely to say pointless things, which makes it less likely for you to get banned, which, I do gather from the wall of text above, is what happened. As always, if anything here needs clarification or if you have any questions, please ask me (but only after you've thought about all the options and are still stuck). ~ Humbuck Talk 00:57, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
PMP, this happened to me too. And with Skully's help, I realized that IRC would only lead me trouble and I should keep away from it in the future. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! - 01:00, 26 June 2011
TheHumbucker, yeah I understand. But I will still say I do not do anything of that sort anymore, you can be there to see for yourself anytime. But again, if I do do it then I won't. An IRC ban is no point though. Not that I did anything to earn it, but I can't gather up enough people to vote for lifting it up. That is just, not how IRC should work. You guys are admins your choice. You want to lift the ban lift it you don't want to lift the ban, I think I can't do squat about that. But please, as I am saying it again and again and agian, the major chunk of things everybody is telling me not to do are things I don't do anymore. And if I do, I promised above I won't. Totally your choice in the end. --Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 11:27, June 26, 2011 (UTC)

Oh you have me on ignore again. Perfect. --Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 14:58, June 26, 2011 (UTC)
You can't ignore someone on-wiki (at least from a technical perspective). I've been reading everything that's been going on, but ultimately I'm at the mercy of what other ops and users on IRC want, and right now there isn't anything I can do that wouldn't go rather against consensus.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 15:01 Jun 26, 2011
IRC doesn't work on 'consensus' unless there's a specific instance (like trolling) and you know it man. Do whatever man, cya. --Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 15:08, June 26, 2011 (UTC)
I've never seen a user actually hating another user. I think there was some sort of (quarrel?) that happened between me and another user, where the other user was suggesting that I had sockpuppets floating around and suggesting I should be banned. Almost left the wiki after that. But Skully dosen't hate anyone (well, maybe Olipro). He's just helping you out so you don't mess up at the end. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! - 18:37, 26 June 2011
It's mostly my bum that hates Olipro.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 18:58 Jun 26, 2011
Bum Soup. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! - 19:25, 26 June 2011
Yeah and that's the way to do it. By /ignore and /ban. and yeah he doesn't hate me but those five users do. That's a help. :)--Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 20:13, June 26, 2011 (UTC)
You like bullying huh. You like making arch enemies huh. Don't like when people like you eh. Very bad job with the ban though Google helps more, nick combinations? Seriously? Let's keep this up. Let's take this forward. You are misusing your op position man, and the policy you were talking about, there is no policy which says you can keep a user off IRC unless he's a vandal or a troll. You think there aren't five people in that room who don't like you? Or anybody else? Ok, let's keep doing this. I will at least get to learn how to change hosts and stuff. And hey, I do not like you too. :) --Wiggly pFiry mWiggly p -> That's Poop Man Poop 22:13, June 26, 2011 (UTC)


I've been trying to style the Oasis skin and for some reason can't seem to get the background to stick. Any idea what's wrong with it? And I mean besides that it's Oasis... what specifically about it, or some such. *shifty eyes* 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 13:04, 26 June 2011

Works fine for me on Windows 7 in Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and IE8. Where're you having the problem? Unless you're trying to get the background to literally stick, that is, not move in relation to the rest of the page, in which case that's something different.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 14:40 Jun 26, 2011

Hey, you!

Let me tell you this now. Remember when I said "AN has 12 proxies you will never find"? well, you only managed to ban 4. I have been editing Anonymously since the day I was perma-banned. And guess what? I'm going to open another 7. Have fun trying to catch them, fool!

I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. I barf at the very thought of you. You have all the appeal of a paper cut. Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. An insensate, blinking calf, meaningful to nobody, abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling beasts who sired you and then killed themselfs in recognition of what they had done. You are a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. And did I mention you smell? FUCK YOU!! - Another_n00b 15:15, June 26, 2011 (UTC)

The best part is that he isn't even vandalizing anymore. He's become such an ineffective vandal that he's started actually contributing. Hey A_N, here's a tip, and I really mean this from the bottom of my heart, because I've dealt with vandals and for a time was even one myself: you don't want to go for subtlety. Go big or go home. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 19:36, June 26, 2011 (UTC)
