Boring Reference Shit

The following is transcribed from User_talk:Dr._Skullthumper

Have put a redirect to Ethine's Skype page and put a protect on it, so that both pages now exist. Ethine seems somewhat keen to keep her little side project under her page where it was originally created. This isn't meant as a criticism but sometimes it pays to ask the person who created the page if they mind you moving it before you do.... :) Anyhoo...nice to see you around these parts... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

Thanks for the heads up. Actually, it was originally created under my userspace - being it was my little side project - and I only moved it to her userspace because she seemed interested in running it, and it didn't seem appropriate to keep it under my userspace anymore.
Recently, however, she has left her post as the person running UnSkype, and it's something taken over by a few other users along with myself. So I was faced with a choice - move it back to my userspace (even though I'm not the only one running it anymore as I had in the beginning), or just say to hell with it and put it in the main Uncyclopedia space. I chose the latter, as it seemed to make more sense.
I would have asked Ethine personally, but because she has voluntarily vacated her position, and it was my project in the first place, I didn't see the need.
If you'd like to leave a redirect, go ahead, but as it is not her project, I don't honestly see the point.
Thank you,  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:43 Jul 11, 2010
P.S. I note that it is back in her userspace, now. I'd like to put in my request to have it moved back to the space I designated for it. I'd say I have the authority to do so as the creator of the project and the original author of the page itself. However, I'll await your ruling on the matter, so as to avoid conflict. I'd just like to emphasize that it is currently headed by other users, not her.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:47 Jul 11, 2010
UnSkype is being run by others? That seems odd- I'm signed into Skype right now in the chat, and I believe she's the host. --Andorin Kato 23:53, July 11, 2010 (UTC)
The chatroom can be found at if you like. That's an unofficial room.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:57 Jul 11, 2010
If I understand correctly, there are four problems with your statement.
  • The channel is currently being run primarily by Dex and EMC, who, in our correspondence, don't at all portray it the way you do. As I understand it, they agree that both rooms are "official".
  • Ethine has not "voluntarily" left, so much as had the channel forcibly removed from her control without prior notification or discussion as to the terms and details of it.
  • The Unskype project was collaborative, and undertaken in cooperation with Ethine, who has played a significant role in its development. Your statement implies that she worked for you in this endeavor. I should hope that you're ready to pay her severance if this was the case.
  • Weren't you going to take a leave of absence? Is this how you try to cool down ire against your bad self, by waving your admin e-peen and causing drama? I'd further this diatribe, but you already seem to have missed the point of your own sabbatical.
  • Fish heads, fish heads, roly poly fish heads.

I have not voluntarily vacated my position, it is and always has been a cooperative project. The implication was not that I was not working for you, but simply that we were working together. Love, Ethine sig 

I actually don't have much time to get involved in what appears at first glance to be another potential dramafest, to be honest I'm not really that bothered who started what and who was "in charge", if you are doing something for the community it is about the community, not our own egos, and if personal differences arise between individuals involved, because hey, we're human, then its time for people to nut up and ask are you still doing something to benefit the community or because of something lacking in our own lives. If neither of you feel that you are capable of working together then maybe you should both step aside and let someone else take over? From what I can see from the outside, between you you are creating a neat little schism amongst the users that are UnSkyping in forcing them to use one group or the other, which no matter how you dress it up is not serving the community in any way and creating unnecessary drama we can do without. Again, this is just my opinion as an external observer.... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
FWIW, I went as a mediator for the Ethine and the, at the time, active channel admin, Dex. Aside from DrS saying all kinds of wacky things that were not agreed upon on their end, everything seems to be pretty peachy. In fact, there's a lot of good vibes coming form the split, since each channel seems to serve different purposes. Everyone seems pretty happy with the new arrangement, except for DrS, who seems to be doing his own thing. By the way, everyone is welcome to join both channels, and Ethine, Dex, and I will have the details for both channels up on the UN:Skype page when I move it into the mainspace later tonight. And then we will have Murderball tournaments.--Flammable 21:40, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

By the way, we should move this shit into the dump: Forum:UnSkype

And now back to your regularly scheduled programming.


UnSkype is running as per usual. I have not voluntarily vacated my position, despite rumors to the contrary. Love, Ethine sig 

Right but lets face facts, there's now two unskype channels claiming to be the official. I'm not saying two channels can't coexist, but one of them has to be the official one. Orrr there could be like, two official ones. Orrrr there could be no more official channels. I don't know, but something has to be decided sooner or later. By whom, I can't say. -Bretthead

You're all a bunch of idiots.

There are, and have always been two official unskype channels. Which one is more officialer than the other will be determined by double elimination games of Murderball. Double elimination means ZOMBIES. --Flammable 02:01, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, but is the drama gone?

Is everybody back to being happy time go-lucky friends? Because I don't like the idea of choosing who to be loyal to. Basically, I decided to keep my distance until this whole UnSkype thing blows over.It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 04:08, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
