Questions, questions ?
I thought the Village Dump was the place to ask questions. I take Spam on Rye by the way. 18.104.22.168 07:43, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
- The village dump is not the place to spam questions. If you have questions ask them all in one topic, or use IRC. → Spang ☃☃☃ 15:29, 13 Feb 2007
Hya Spang, I tried to upload an MP3 file which is aprox 5.5MB, and got rejected by the server. Any advises? Thanks.18:48, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
- Hey, sorry I forgot about replying here! I see braydie has already answered your question though. Another solution may be to encode the MP3 at a lower quality, or if the upload was just timing out, upload it from a faster connection. → Spang ☃☃☃ 23:48, 14 Feb 2007
- Do you have an encoder you recommend? And the server didn't time out, just game me a "you can't do that it's too big" notice.... 15:30, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
- I usually use LAME (google for it if you haven't got it). Try different bitrates and settings until it's under the limit. If that results in a noticeable drop in quality, try using that one and linking to a high-quality version hosted somewhere else. → Spang ☃☃☃ 16:17, 15 Feb 2007
- Yep, that's the one I'm using. OK, thanks again! 16:21, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
awwww!!! :D bless ur lil cotton socks.
don't blame Insineratehymn, to the untrained eye my recent edit could be classed as drivel or rubbish :D
personally I blame the wine! --Ceridwyn 07:17, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
- Hehe. I figured someone would see your edits and revert them thinking they were vandalism sooner or later. But don't worry, they're safe as long as I can still edit here! → Spang ☃☃☃ 07:56, 4 Dec 2006
- Hmmm, edits which appear to be vandalism but are in fact, not! Sounds like a new power to me... --Ceridwyn 08:00, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
- Ooh, that power sounds mighty trifling... → Spang ☃☃☃ 08:01, 4 Dec 2006
- NOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Not..../gasp....TRIFLING! I'm just /hitched breath not...ready for trifling powers, because with them comes.../pained look...trifling responsibilities! --Ceridwyn 08:06, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
- So tempted to change that hatehate template just to the hate one :P oh and i got a nice random this refresh:
- "I have often been described as "somewhat similar to a belittling cuddly toy". I once liked to sniff stuff, but since You constructed George Washington, I now mostly earn squids." --Ceridwyn 08:23, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
- You may not think it, but I think you're ready now. You just have to believe in yourself, man, and the trifling power will come with it!
- Yeah, the random thing can be pretty good sometimes :) And funnily enough, I do mostly earn squids now. Weird.
- Hey, how about adding both, right next to each other? There's some contradictory fun right there! Plus I do hate myself. And, I'm already in both the male users and female users categories, so more things that don't make sense can't hurt! → Spang ☃☃☃ 08:30, 4 Dec 2006
- Hmmmm both WOULD be hilarious, I think I shall... yeah I did notice the ambiguous/androgynous group membership there.
- As for the squids I guess you are right! I didn't think of quids-squids, just actual squid-squids. thoughts of a template are blossoming.
- RE:being ready for trifling power, I'm still not convinced, and technically that should read: "You just have to believe in yourself, woman, and the trifling power will come with it!" but then who am I to quibble with s/he who aligns themselves with both genders. All I know is I'm not you, nor am I Mhaille (yes, days of musing on this topic have assured me on both counts.) --Ceridwyn 08:43, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
- I actually meant actual squids. It was a lie though. It also would be a lie in the money-making sense too, but I can always pretend.
- Oh, and I meant "man" in the hippy way, the kinda non-gender specific way. Saves me typing two extra letters! I'm lazy in a very complicated way. I'm sure you'll know when you're ready for trifling power... best stick with the trivial for now then, until you're ready for the trifling responsibility!
- And I'm glad you're not me or Mhaille, no offence to mhaille, but that Spang's eeevil. → Spang ☃☃☃ 09:05, 4 Dec 2006
- In the interests of aesthetics I've decided to undent one edit at a time so this forms a lovely arc back around.
- Earning actual squids would be awesome. I wish I was. I'm not earning either sadly.
- The irony of being too lazy to type "wo" is that now you've had to type much more than 2 letters in the explanation/defense of the lack thereof. Take that hippy!
- I think given the appropriate amount of time I may be ready, but as I apparently can't be trusted to use the Move button and therefore right yet another trivial wrong, I can't see that that time has arrived.
- I too am glad, I heard that everyone hates Spang. Even Spang does, according to his user page. Maybe I still could be Mhaille? --Ceridwyn 09:19, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
- Heh, talk page aesthetics sounds like another trivial power to me!
- I imagine getting paid in squid would be all fun until you decide you need to eat, and you can't cook said squid because the power companies don't take squid as payment. And squid don't pay the rent neither!
- I did say I was lazy in a complicated way! That includes believing that the time saved missing out 2 letters is worth the many more explaining that, and the more explaining my special laziness. Totally worth it.
- Yes, in time you'll be ready... though I think the move power will be granted very soon, unless I'm very much mistaken.
- I'm pretty sure you're not mhaille now, as your userpage tells me you hate users who hate me, and he definitely doesn't do that! So I think you're safe there for now... → Spang ☃☃☃ 18:29, 4 Dec 2006
- If you were to build a fire out of dried quid (possibly last months pay check, this months is too fresh still, and we'l be using that later...) and cook the more fresh squid, for example this months pay (see!) atop the fire, then one could consume the charred flesh of the fresher squid, providing important nutrients and proteins in a process also known as eating.
- I'd say thats more than 'complicated' I'd go so far as to say that laziness of this caliber warrants the title 'sophisticated.'
- Well technically, I didn't put that there, I asked for EITHER the I hate users who hate Spang tag OR the I hate Spang tag. You can blame Tooltroll for that one. Technically he could put it on Mhaille's page too, which voids your argument for why I am in fact not Mhaille. --Ceridwyn 22:39, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
- Wow, this eating sounds fun. But I'm not sure the squid would like it.
- Aha, I like "sophisticated laziness". I'd make myself some kind of award, but, y'know, I'm too lazy.
- This is interesting... perhaps you are actually Tooltroll? Or any number of other people? Maybe you should go on one of those self-discovery things, and let me know when you find out. → Spang ☃☃☃ 06:24, 5 Dec 2006
- Whether the squid enjoys it or not is neither here nor there, the squid was payment, it is nought more than a form of currency. Its feelings are irrelevant.
- You know, I had no such questions about my identity prior to coming here, I think you all want to confuse me. I know who I am. But I'm not telling :P Anyway, I can't be Trolltoll if you look at the evidence, he edited my user-page, and I have sworn an vow to not edit my user-page, so I can't be him, unless schizophrenia or alternate accounts create loopholes in the vow.
- I'm considering making you a sophisticatedly lazy award, but I'm terribly busy writing my piece on Kralnor so can't right now :P
- Maybe I'll just pinch a different award and change the words? --Ceridwyn 21:31, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
- Well, so long as the squid go peacefully, I'm sure I could live with it.
- Yes, confusing you has been my aim all along. Soon you'll be more confused than you've ever been, and then I can brainwash you. I haven't decided what for yet, but it will be decidedly evil, no doubt.
- I love awards, I'll do anything for one. And stealing another award and just changing the words I think is appropriately lazy for an award for laziness!
- And that kralnor article is coming along nicely! Looking good so far. → Spang ☃☃☃ 04:08, 6 Dec 2006
- Oh noes, only one more un-dent left before we have to begin re-denting!
- You may help the squids along however you please, but it does modify the flavour somewhat unfortunately.
- I'm certain your nefarious schemes to brainwash me shall not succeed sir for i gird my brains with cheese.
- As for awards I have some ideas, but as mentioned earlier, Kralnor is taking up all my time.
- On that note, do you really think it has potential? I think its becoming awfully long, but I am very proud of my "not at Wikipedia" template! Its veritably squee-worthy!
- If you can think of any suggestions or tips for it, please feel free to leave them on its talk page! I would be most honoured!
- My main concern with it at this stage is when is it ready to be moved into main article space. I'm rather nervous about my first article being ridiculed =/ --Ceridwyn 04:27, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
Aha! I got back to the margin first! I think I should win something. Maybe squid. Although undenting past the left hand side is technically possible, it might not be a good idea. How do you know my brainwashing scheme doesn't take the cheese into account? Or perhaps uses it in some way? Or maybe I'm just saying that so you no longer trust the cheese? My powers of confusion are strong, you see.
As for Kralnor, I don't play WoW, so I know next to nothing about the subject, so I don't know if I could help with the content. I can offer general editing tips though. It is pretty long, so make sure to keep the readers interested through it. Maybe some pictures if possible. Don't worry about it being ridiculed, I pretty sure it won't be :) Take a look at some of the new pages we get, and you'll see that yours is already like 100 times better than the majority of those already! → Spang ☃☃☃ 05:02, 6 Dec 2006
|The Squid Award|
Ceridwyn hereby bestoweth upon ye the Squid Award.
For Sophisticated Laziness & for being the first to undent back to the left margin.
May you cook it well upon a fire fueled by the dried corpses of its brethren.
- Congratulations to you for being the official first recipient of the Squid Award!, although we probably could have worked out who would hit the margin again first from the time I started un-denting :P still its award worthy. you award whore you!
- Your powers of confusion are indeed strong, but this cheese is blue cheese, so you must try harder than that!
- I don't think that not-playing WoW should be a problem when it comes to Kralnor, his teachings have wisdom we can all benefit from :D anyway the bulk of the content is made up really. only the three posts he wrote aren't, the rest is gibberish either by me or other nutty warlock types, so i think anyone should be able to read along with it. as for the length im struggling to see where i could cut it down, so ill resort to adding more pictures in an attempt to keep the flow going, probably once i have finished the text though. Thanks for the compliment, even if the others are shite, it makes me feel better that at least mine is 100 times better than shite! --Ceridwyn 23:47, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
- Hooray! An award for me! My day is made. Thanks!
- Aha, my confusion is working already! Because that cheese is green.
- As for Kralnor, I shall try to apply his wisdom to my life as best as I can. I don't think you need to cut the article down as long as it keeps people's interest which it probably will do. And being at least 100 times better than shite is more than most people manage in their whole time here! → Spang ☃☃☃ 09:02, 7 Dec 2006
- Glad my meagre award made your day. I'm considering making a little "This user" template too for your growing number of categories to belong to.
- "as long as it keeps people's interest which it probably will do" /gasp! That would indicate that you didn't stay up all night feverishly devouring the details of Kralnor's Simultaneously Third and Fourth Gospels! or reading about the Minor Prophets! What about "Winning converts to Kralnoricism" ?! Blasphemer! ;P
- Just think, What Would Kralnor Do? and remember, don't report him, he might get in trouble! :)
- --Ceridwyn 22:03, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
- Heh, that's ok. I haven't made my own award to give, but I may make one up sometime, for starting this nice arc shaped conversation.
- Sorry, most of my time is taken up with worshipping satan, which is a lot more time consuming than one would think. I have hardly any time these days to read about other people. Perhaps I will consider converting to Kralnoricism, though Satan may not like that. → Spang ☃☃☃ 04:29, 9 Dec 2006
- The arc is indeed coming along quite nicely, no award necessary, just the lovely shape of it is reward enough. As for being busy, thats understandable, The Big Red Guy must be a demanding boss at this time of year, no wait, wrong big red guy. He may not like it, but surely in the interests of research he wouldn't mind? In the immortal words of Zach de la Rocha; "Yeah! Know your enemy! Come on!" --Ceridwyn 05:21, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
- A beautiful arc it is. Oh, both the big red guys are in fact the same guy. Ever wondered why the names were so similar? It's all part of a smear campaign by this hippy Jesus dude, just because he didn't get any presents for being bad one year. But I shall do my best to apply the teachings of Kralnor to my life, and also the teachings of Rage Against the Machine. → Spang ☃☃☃ 02:53, 11 Dec 2006
- Ah, it all becomes clear now, I had always suspected their involvement...And I'm sure Kralnor would approve of RATM as medititive music. so long as you LOOK IT OVER. Can't think of anymore to say, too tired! --Ceridwyn 04:07, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
- I can't think of anything more to add to this conversation other than the fact that I want to keep this lovely arc going, so that it might one day turn into a wave. Which would be cool. → Spang ☃☃☃ 01:21, 20 Dec 2006
- Me either really :D Perhaps we need new topics to discuss? The squid seem to be exhausted now... --Ceridwyn 06:20, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
- Yes, the squid are probably quite finished now. They should work on their stamina or something. As for what topics to discuss to keep this arc going, I have no idea. Maybe we could discuss the economic climate in Peru, or maybe tell tales of past adventures in exotic far away places, or maybe talk about the weather. The possibilities are surely endless! → Spang ☃☃☃ 04:07, 21 Dec 2006
- Trying to see just HOW far I can push the arc this time before it becomes ridiculous. Or am I attempting to rig the winning of the next margin contest? You be the judge! I'm not sure I know anything about the economic climate in Peru, and I haven't had many adventures in exotic far away places, unless London counts? But then again, had no adventures there. Umm, my parents took me round Europe when I was 3...and the weather here is lovely at the moment, looking forward to a barbie with some friends tomorrow! Noice one bro! --Ceridwyn 08:32, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
- Heheh, well I'll let you choose when to undent it. Undenting must be one of those trivial powers I lack...
- Well, the economic climate in Peru is going interestingly, I've been on hundreds of exciting adventures I could tell you about, and I made both of those things up. Although I am going to London for a bit this summer, and it should be very exciting. But those suggestions maybe weren't the best. The weather here is dull and dreary, but that's just normal here. We didn't even get snow over christmas :( Enjoy your barbie, I probably won't be able to have one of those until Scotland's three days of summer arrive, which is ages away! → Spang ☃☃☃ 09:11, 5 Jan 2007
- Wow this section really requires a lot of scrolling these days. I hope it doesn't break my poor mouse. Its so comfy and gamer-ly. Shame about the weather, its just lovely here. No purveying cherries isn't a euphemism, at least not in the context I used it, its my summer job =/ Really tiring and unexciting. But pays ok.
- As for a lack of trivial powers, I would have thought that your admin powers would encompass and include all lesser powers also? Surely? (Yes I did just reply to at least two different sections in one post. Some of your lazy must have infected me.
- Oh and, I forgot a couple of things, I thoroughly approve of the trademarked colour, in fact, I'm rather humbled by it all! I'd like to thank my manager..../forces out a fake tear and a giggle simultaneously. Also I LOVE the new rainbow sig! Are you SURE you're not a girl? Oh and you should SEE what my friend made me, a BINARY CLOCK! It definately surpasses sliced bread as the best thing ever. --Ceridwyn 10:01, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
- Hmmm, perhaps a sub-header would be the next step? That seems a bit drastic though. At least your mouse would have broken for a good cause! We're used to weather like this here, it's pretty normal for it to be cold and wet and not very nice.
- I think any other powers I have other than the admin ones must be somehow blocked out by the power of laziness I have. Which is fine by me really, it means I have less to do, which is always good.
- Yes, you know you've come far in the world when you've got a colour named after you! As for my sig, I made it so it only shows like this on my talk page, because the random colour template was making it take ages to load up! So it's still the same old one everywhere else but here, but I quite like them both. And yes, I'm pretty certain that I'm a guy! I just liked the colourfulness of the old one, and a rainbow seemed appropriate for non-random colourness. Or something.
- Surely a binary clock would be difficult to read? Well done to your friend for making one anyway! I have a backwards clock in my room, it confuses everyone who tries to read the time from it. → Spang ☃☃☃ 02:36, 6 Jan 2007
And I see you've archived our lovely arc! /cry!
I go away for a couple weeks and you've erased all memory of me!
Well except for changing your name on your userpage, of which I heartily approve! --Ceridwyn 00:54, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
- What are you talking about, the arc was never gone! It was merely hiding until you came back! It is by far the best-shaped conversation I've ever seen. Although I do like the coloured section header on this one!
- So were you off purveying fine cherries again? Or perhaps great apples this time? Lovely bananas? Can't have been nearly as fun as conversation-arc building, that's for sure! → Spang ☃☃☃ 01:52, 16 Feb 2007
- It warms the cockles of my heart to see the arc's return :) Where have I been? oh, here and there. If you must know, the expansion for WoW came out, so yeah...but I'm lvl 70 now, and all is right with the world again. I gave up the purveying of assorted high-quality fruit to study Lua programming for WoW for 2 wks, and an now resuming normal student life :)
- I am in agreement about the aesthetic value of the conversation, certainly the prettiest I've partaken in! And thank you ever so much for the delightful colouration on my user page! <3 --Ceridwyn 06:01, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
- You're welcome! Wait, are you trying to tell me there are things to do for fun that aren't uncyclopedia? I didn't know such a thing existed! Congratulations on becoming level 70, you must be proud!
- You're welcome for the colouration too, I'm sure you would have done the same for me, should the situation ever require it! → Spang ☃☃☃ 13:25, 17 Feb 2007
- I'm not certain fun comes into all the time, more compulsion these days :)
- I logged into IRC yesterday and was sad to hear I'd missed you by 20 mins :(
- You know of course I'd repay the favour, or have I already? I've lost track of our tit-for-tat edits of each others userpages, can't tell who owes who anymore!
- In fact if I was to be completely honest, I've forgotten which pink is the correct pink these days too, its been so long. IIRC i liked FF3399, but you were in favour of FF69somethingsomething? Perhaps you can shed some light on this :)
- Also one day I'll get around to making an all pink signature for myself. the blue name and black time/date mar the pristine loveliness of my paragraphs.
- I see a bit of a trend here, could this be arc 2.0?
- <3 --Ceridwyn 22:39, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
- Compulsion, fun, it's all the same, right?
- Aw, what are the chances? Though I'm usually on IRC at quite odd hours, and usually not at any regular times. So it's often quite difficult to catch me on it.
- I can't remember who owes who what as far as the userpage edits go. Basically now I would just go by editing whenever I feel like it! Much easier than keeping track of things. I think the correct pink os the one that looks the best. There may be a reference to Ceridwyn Pink™ above, but I'm going to use my powers of advanced laziness to not look that up. I remember mine was more of a hot pink. Or something. I'm not really sure, to be honest, I though you were the one to keep the pinks in check!
- Ah, a pink signature would be rather good! It would make your paragraphs that much more pink, which is always a good thing! If you find your trivial powers aren't quite enough and need help making the signature, just ask and I'll assist (if I'm not feeling too lazy, that is)!
- I was thinking of making my paragraphs some kind of blue to offset the pink, and make arc 2.0 even better looking than arc 1! That'd be awesome. → Spang ☃☃☃ 04:24, 18 Feb 2007
- Yes I think I was the self-appointed guardian of Pink, but I've caught your laziness. I'm sure you are quite right and that all we'd have to do is scroll up and the answers would be there, but meh :)
- I'm sure I'll figure something out in the way of a signature, although my earlier dabblings didn't acheive my secret and nefarious goals, so perhaps I just suck at this CSS stuffs.
- Blue would be nice, however then we'd really be falling into awful clichededness. Perhaps you could find a nice gender-ambiguous muave, or even puce? Perhaps a shade of olive? Olive is quite nice, although it might not go well with my pink. Better stick with puce. I think I shall change the name of this heading to arc2.0 Yes without a space. I like it that way --Ceridwyn 07:07, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
- Oh dear, I didn't realise my laziness was catching! I'd do something about that, but meh... :)
- If it's not above, then it'll be in the archive somewhere... but that clicking as well as scrolling and looking, so I'd probably only do that in the case of some kind of Pink-emergency.
- If I see any signature-dabbling, I'll be sure to lend a hand if I can. I sucked at the css stuffs before I came here, and now I'm like the best, ever. So I feel honour-bound to pass on The Knowledge whenever I can!
- Ah, I didn't consider the clichédness of the pink/blue combo, I was just thinking of using the blue in my sig. Can't be having with terrible clichés, though, so a different colour it shall be! I'm too tired for colour choosing right now, but later I shall peruse a big colour list to find the perfect one. I'll keep your recommendations in mind though!
- Hmmm, arc2.0 without a space? Is omitting spaces a hitherto undiscovered trivial power? Maybe even trifling? :o → Spang ☃☃☃ 04:36, 19 Feb 2007
- The blue in your sig IS quite lovely, and might perhaps dispell those pesky rumours of your being a girl :P
- No ommitting spaces, as far as I can tell, is not part of my trivial powers, more part of my fleeting whimsy.
- Bleuch Ethics class is getting in the way of my arcing =/ --Ceridwyn 21:45, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
- Damn, I thought that userbox I made would have convinced anyone beyond their gender-doubting. Damn you, false rumours!
- Hmmm, how about this colour? I don't know how well it goes with the pink, but it has the manliest name of any colour I could find: Burly Wood. I don't know if I'll stick with it, but it'll do for now.
- Perhaps ethics class can be useful to the arc: I wonder how ethical it would be to retroactively colour all my parts of this arc? I don't know if your class covers arc ethics specifically, but if it doesn't, it probably should. → Spang ☃☃☃ 09:05, 20 Feb 2007
- Burly Wood eh? Certainly sounds very manly, however sadly it is quite a hard colour to read =/ Perhaps a darker shade of it? Although bear in mind it is critical to avoid it looking like poo. On that note did you intend to make the pun about "sticking" with it? If not its mightily funny anyway.
- My opinion on retroactive arc colouring is that it would be unethical, although under Rawlsian justice theory, those sections of the arc have been under-priveleged or deprived, and should therefore have more given to them to make up for this injustice. Its a heavily debated area of retroactive arc colouration ethics.
- Much to my dismay (and yours also I'm certain) my Ethics class is shamefully neglectful of recent retroactive arc colouring theory, almost conspiratorially so I might add. My trival powers fail me as to the correct spelling of the act of being privy to a conspiracy. :( --Ceridwyn 00:21, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
- Ok, today's manly-sounding colour is "golden rod". *snicker* It's quite similar to the last one, and maybe easier to read. Though I don't know how well it achieves the "not look like poo" goal. I think it's just enough gold in it to save it. Don't know if I'll keep this one either. I just get distracted by the ones with slightly funny names.
- I think it would probably be best just to leave the old ones as they are. It's like history. If I was to start retroactively colouring my arcs, it might start me on a slippery slope, and before I know it everything I ever did would be variously coloured with colours with vaguely amusing names! And that just wouldn't do.
- I think it is quite unethical that ethics classes aren't teaching people what they need to know about the modern-day issue of arc-colouring. What kind of world would they have us live in, one without arcs and colours? That's be a terrible place to live indeed. It's obviously a conspiracy - perhaps there ought to be a secret undercover investigation into this... → Spang ☃☃☃ 01:09, 22 Feb 2007
- Lol@golden rod, just where is this master list of colours you peruse? I'm not sure which is easier to read tbh, but its probably closer to baby lamb poo yellow than traditional brown, so you are probably safe at the mo.
- I definately agree on the anti-retroactive arc colouring stance you are taking, more power to you!
- Uggh I started writing this ages ago lol, got distracted. Thats enough from me for one arc segment! --Ceridwyn 10:12, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
- Aha, so you want to know the location of my super-secret ultimate list of all HTML colour names, eh? The place where I derive all my (admittedly inferior) arc colouring prowess? Ok. Awesome colour list here!. Today's pick is light sea green. I think it compliments the pink nicely, though it may be getting into the clichédness we were avoiding just a little. Ah well. I had considered "snow" colour at one point, but decided against it. :)
- At least it's definitely not poo coloured in any way! Which is always important.
- Hmmm, not very many section to go till we're back at the margin... I wonder who is going to win? I have absolutely no idea who it could be! → Spang ☃☃☃ 06:34, 24 Feb 2007
- Light seagreen is quite nice actually, and definately well clear of looking like poo! I think the argument that its actually a green, not blue would negate the cliché aspect easily.
- As for who is going to win, I suspect I know at this point, although I wonder if the decision to turn back was entirely random or is this somehow rigged? /suspicious
- What will the winner receive this time?
- Also, this raises an interesting question that I hadn't thought of last arc, once we reach the margin and arc back out again, are we locked into turning at the same point as the last arc, for symmetry's sake, or is each arc another race back to the margin? --Ceridwyn 06:49, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
- HAI GUYS I WANT TO PLAY TOO
- I WANTS TO MAKE BIG ARCH
- HAI GUYS I WANT TO PLAY TOO
- Well seeing as light sea green is ok, I'll stick with it for now. Also, I'm too lazy to find another good one right now :)
- Well, not so much rigged, as come to the conclusion that as long as each person indents or undents by one each time, the winner will always be the same, no matter where it turns back. That's the science of conversation arcs for you. I suppose one could use html/css to do a half indent, but it just wouldn't be quite the same.
- Hmmm, I'm not sure what the prize should be... Perhaps whoever is going to lose should think something up soon!
- Hmm, I'd say that one should be free to indent or undent at will. Others may feel that a more evenly structured approach would be better, but I say they're living in the past. The past! This is the future, there's no place in these arcs for rules any more. You could even start indenting from the right, or go crazy and indent both sides at once! The possibilities are endless!* → Spang ☃☃☃ 07:10, 26 Feb 2007
- *not actually endless
Woohoo! I win! Lets play again! The fun is trying to win when you play ArcConversation™ by Milton Bradley
I think I've figured out the formula for winning, the person who starts the undenting will lose. Always. Although I think this needs stringent testing. Also in the interests of aesthetics, I think if arc2.0 is ever left to die, we cannot let this happen until we reach the lefthand margin again. For example here would be an ok place, but another complete arc first would be preferable.
Not that I think we *should* let it die, its clearly superior to arc1.0 and I accept full responsibility for the expiry of that one, although I have seen the future, and its arc3.0, better, brighter and more colourful! Why we didn't start colouring it earlier I shall never fathom, and although we decided retroactive arc recolouring was inherently evil and wrong, it does somewhat offend my aesthetic sensibilities.
Anyway, I digress, the point here is 'I win', and I want a purty award, akin to the Squid Award, but much more topical to THIS arc (lets look to the present and future not the past after all!) with which to furnish the dusty recesses of my userpage, perhaps something in a tasteful light seagreen? --Ceridwyn 22:26, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
Alright, I need some help here. Is there a way to attract some willing contributors (not the ones who delete every page on site) to help me work on this page? My Idea-O-Meter is reading zero, and if I don't get it done in a few days some nutjob is going to baleet it.
Cast your wisdom on me! --User:Midnight 7 04:30, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
- Well pee review is your best bet there. I would suggest making it less listy and more sentencey. Also make the formatting look nicer. But as for content, I'd have no idea where to start, knowing nothing about the subject. → Spang ☃☃☃ 04:38, 16 Feb 2007
One second blocks?

Favor to ask
Considering all of the work to deny recognition to He who shall not be named, I feel that we need to take further precautions to send him the message that we don't want him here. The reason why I come to your talkpage is to ask if you could go on a "proxy hunt". Considering He who shall not be named uses proxies near exclusively, we need to deny him a workable proxy. I ask that you go out into the internet and find sites that supply proxies. Once found, you must ban every proxy that site supplies. Call it a "proxy holocaust" if you must, but these precautions must be taken if we don't want He who shall not be named to come back here ever again.
PS. When I was saying "He who shall not be named", I was of course talking about Power**** dude. --05:15, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
- Yeah, I got that :)
- Could do, but that an awful lot of work for one lazy person. It's probably be easier searching for a place where all the proxies he has used occur in the same place, then blocking all that appear there. Though having said that, most proxy listing sites add loads more proxies every day, so blocking "old" ones is likely to not make much of a difference. Though I think some wikipedia admins regularly go to these sites and block all the new ones. If someone gave me a list of proxies to block, I'd block them, and have done before with such lists, but I'm not sure it makes much of a difference really. For each proxy that's blocked, there's thousands more to choose from. That's why it's more important to try and make them give up in the first place, rather than trying to stop them coming back against their will. → Spang ☃☃☃ 06:34, 24 Feb 2007
- If you are to block a list of proxies that someone gave to you, could you block the proxies found at this site? I know that you said that new proxies are sent to these sites everyday, but it's at least worth a try. -- 15:20, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
- To be honest, I really don't think it's worth the effort. There are hundreds of free proxy sites, each with thousands of proxies listed at them. If someone was using a proxy that was blocked, it's about 10 seconds' work to find a new one. I think now that most mentions of him have been removed, it's time to just forget about him and move on, and just report him if he shows up. Good work doing what you've done so far though. → Spang ☃☃☃ 07:27, 26 Feb 2007
I've crowned myself
Can you please see if did everything right? I've archived and cleared AOTM, get the prize to my Trophy Room and placed my name on Unbooks Temp (something like this). -- herr doktor needsAgear [scream!] 05:05, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
- I know I replied in IRC, but I can't have an unreplied bit here, that'd be wrong. Well done, you did everything right. And congratulations! → Spang ☃☃☃ 06:06, 1 Mar 2007
