It's not like the admins ever update it, so perhaps users could do it for them? And I've pointed out several errors needing correction on the talk page. --User:Nintendorulez 22:24, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Consider it done. --Drauhx 00:58, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

Sorry? Who are you? -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 13:01, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Ha ha ha. Oh man that two line exchange just made my day! --Sir Zombiebaron 15:08, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, how's that nobody supposed to unprotect the page? --User:Nintendorulez 21:03, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Don't diss Drauhx, he can unprotect the page if he wants to! Spang talk 22:24, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
I say we joke sysop the guy. And then de-op him three seconds later, of course. --User:Nintendorulez 00:05, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

It shouldn't be unprotected. But the admins should definitely watch it more. Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 01:39, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

Well, what about semiprotection? --User:Nintendorulez 13:30, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
I mean, I'd be fine with semiprotection, if there were a way to make it so only veteran users can edit. Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 21:18, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Does 3 days count as veteran? ...Yeah, that's what I thought. I have it on my watchlist though, and reverting isn't hard. --User:Nintendorulez 21:47, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
I would say one month. But you should need not worry. And if some trusted users would become DYK stewards they could prevent bad DYKs from making it. Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 01:38, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
"Trusted users". Now there's an oxymoron if ever an admin heard one... -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 02:08, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
Hey guys, I still can't edit it - what's wrong? --L 05:11, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
The admins haven't unprotected it, that's why. --User:Nintendorulez 00:33, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

I think we should let Drauhx decide which DYK's should be selected for usage this time around. I shall post a link to the list on his page and ask him to pick his favorites. Then I'll put them in the template. Problem solved. Tompkinssig Smallturtle t o m p k i n s  blah. ﺞوﻦ וףה ՃՄ ண்ஸ ފއހ วอฏม +տ trade websites 02:12, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Okay

It's balefully obvious that Drauhx doesn't seem to be carrying the mantle of DYK responsibility placed upon him. So, I hereby volunteer myself to violently usurp his position as Guardian DYKeeper. --L 04:41, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

As far as I can tell Drauhx has yet to contribute anything except for this little gem of wisdom. Talk:Beginner's_Guide/Purpose Are we supposed to start panicking now or something ? --Vosnul 12:05, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Dammit, Drauhx, start doing your job! --User:Nintendorulez 00:33, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Drauhx isn't doing his job, and the errors on the template still haven't been corrected since this topic began.

See Template talk:DYK. The errors I pointed out haven't been fixed, and a few more were just pointed out. Honestly, if admins are going to protect a page, they need to watch the talk page to add things, fix issues, etc. Otherwise, semiprotect them so users can handle things. Where the hell is Drauhx anyway? --User:Nintendorulez 19:58, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

You fix them, and then tell me when you're done, so I can re-protect it. If the page didn't have to be protected, it wouldn't be. However the template is on the Main Page, and as soon as someone realizes they can fuck up the main page, they usually go ahead and try.

Done. Let me know if I missed anything important. I even got parserfunctions to work for ...that September is National Boycott Websites that Insult Their Contributors Month? See ya in October, asswipe! --User:Nintendorulez 23:48, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Also, somebody come up with a DYK involving Drauhx, quick! --User:Nintendorulez 23:49, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Did you know... that Drauhx can do anything? —Braydie at 23:51, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Alright, I'm fully protecting it again, if someone thinks of a good Drauhx DYK, I'll add it. Tompkinssig Smallturtle t o m p k i n s  blah. ﺞوﻦ וףה ՃՄ ண்ஸ ފއހ วอฏม +տ trade websites 23:53, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Too much pressure ;) (yeah, that's a great excuse) —Braydie at 23:57, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Maybe you should take a look at some of KHAAAAAAAAAAN's stuff, as far as I'm concerned, he's the best DYK-er we've ever had. Tompkinssig Smallturtle t o m p k i n s  blah. ﺞوﻦ וףה ՃՄ ண்ஸ ފއހ วอฏม +տ trade websites 23:59, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
