Bot Issues

For some reason, my bot hasn't been working recently. I have not be able to log in on the auto-wiki browser. I tried asking around, but got no responses. --Mn-z 02:05, March 9, 2011 (UTC)

That's because AWB is run by a bunch of incompetents except for one guy, I think his name was Reedy? Anyway, the version you want to download and use is 4.6.2.0; it'll actually let you log in. Hi, by the way!  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 02:07 Mar 09, 2011
The download is at http://toolserver.org/~awb/snapshots/ incase anyone else needs it. Nice to see you came back btw. --Mn-z 02:32, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I can log in, but apparently, when I go it edit, it doesn't change anything. --Mn-z 02:42, March 9, 2011 (UTC)

I don't seem to have that problem... are you gettin' any particular error messages?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 02:44 Mar 09, 2011
I randomly messed with it, and then it starting working. --Mn-z 02:51, March 9, 2011 (UTC)

Oh hai

I was unblocked 6 hours ago, just wanted to mention. I won't do it again. Thanks for your help! - Barn-owl LOL vandalz

Apparently you've got quite a track record, so lemme just put this in plain English for you: I know it doesn't make sense sometimes, but you really can't modify others' discussions or comments. Ever. Even if they make a really blatant mistake. Remember that and it'll serve you well. You're a very polite user and I don't wanna see you get blocked again.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 19:08 Mar 12, 2011

Thank you. I'll try my best not to get blocked. I'll be as careful as possible not to initiate a burnable offence no matter how minor, I once stared at the Mediawiki:Blockedtext for 2 hours, I'm not doing that again. - Barn-owl LOL vandalz

Haha, been there done that. Just so long as you follow that one rule though, you're good!  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 19:17 Mar 12, 2011

Your brilliant. You deserve an award that isn't a "Useless gobshite of the month". Also, I'm thoroughly impressed by
Fnoodle the bot, by the way. You are FTW!! - Barn-owl LOL vandalz

Hourly writing contest

Hey DS. I'm considering running a writing contest for UN:TAW in the near future and I was wonderng if it would be alright with you to base it on the hourly writing contest you ran last year? MadMax 15:30, March 13, 2011 (UTC)

I totally support this but there's an hourly writing contest coming up this very week!  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 02:27 Mar 14, 2011

AdminBots presents: The UnSignpost

1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:12, 17 March 2011

By the way...

Well done with the spam filter, and thank you. Much better than my messy clueless muckery, though something tells me I don't need to tell you that. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 06:30, 18 March 2011

I've still likely fucked something up, but thanks. How it works currently is that it blocks any pages that have a single digit on a new line, followed immediately by a space. Unless someone truly sucks at formatting, I can't imagine why this would ever be used on a real article or forum or whatnot. If you can think of an even more accurate filter I'd love to hear it though.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:26 Mar 18, 2011
Nope, seems to be one thing they all have in common, and something only an idiot would do otherwise... probably as good as we're getting. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 00:11, 19 March 2011

Hi

I saw you huffed those card images, claiming that they were unused. But I would like to point out that they were in use. I had them in my old sig. I used a <choose> tag, so that might've been why they looked unused. Could you please restore them? Thanks. --Tophat headless 17:25, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

Skully huffed those? Woah! Neat! Anyhow, mon, in the future, could you be a dear and use {{notorphan}} with such things, or even better, put them on the signature page itself outside of the choose, within <noinclude> tags? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 19:28, 19 March 2011
Not only did I unhuff the ones I huffed, I unhuffed all the other ones that were huffed about three days ago by not-me. And added {{notorphan}}, by hand, to each of them. You're welcome.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 20:00 Mar 19, 2011
Thank you! I would've added them myself. But still, thanks! --Tophat headless 00:42, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

Eer....

Why can't I type anything on IRC now? - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 20:44, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

You're not banned or anything. Probably just need to disconnect/reconnect your client?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 20:45 Mar 19, 2011

I had the sneeking suspicion that I had been banned.... Luckily it was all in my head. I thought you or Lyrithya had banned me because of my constant Error codes. - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 20:50, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

mw:Extension:AbuseFilter

Think we could get enough support for this one? Works for WikiMedia, does the same thing as what we've got, but can be configured for less false positives. Incidentally, we got another false positive. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 22:59, 21 March 2011

Symbol for vote Hell fucking yes. I'm still very sorry about the false positives. Any alternatives at all are welcome, and of course, if anyone decides that the current filter does more harm than good, they're free to remove it.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:32 Mar 22, 2011

The spam filter is acting up again

It won't let me save this message on this page. It says it's blocking the "word" "7 r". Please help. --Tophat headless 23:28, March 21, 2011 (UTC)

What it's blocking is any single digit on a new line immediately followed by a space. If you add anything before the digit, or anything immediately after it that isn't a space, it'll go through.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:27 Mar 22, 2011
Okay, thanks. --Tophat headless 02:14, March 22, 2011 (UTC)

That thing you had me rewrite

Since there's no good time for us to meet up on IRC, I'll just leave this here for you to look at whenever you feel like and post any advice you might have for me. — JCM 01:12, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

Oh yeah, this is definitely an improvement, cuz you've totally got a concept going on now. Definitely cut down on the exclamation points, though; when you use exclamation points every sentence the emphasis is totally lost. Also it sounds like the narrator is straining himself but that might just be me.
Basically now that you've got the concept nailed down you can "cool down" a bit on the exaggeration (such as the exclamation points). It's already pretty obvious that the narrator is a troll who doesn't understand trolling, so you don't have to worry that the audience won't "get it". If you want to be really clever maybe you should take the extra exclamations of "Motherfucker!" and the like littered throughout the article and put them in footnotes. For example:
We're so 1337, we made 1336 run home to his motherfucking fucking mother in fucking tears![1]
1Motherfucker!
It's just a suggestion, but I find it funny since footnotes suggest "this article is serious, it's got footnotes" but it's using footnotes for a totally superfluous purpose: to swear more often. Not too many, though, maybe 7-8 at max.
Oh, and if you want a good example of over-the-top writing check out the "extreme advertising" meme. You can find it through Google Image Search or ED, choose your poison.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 17:28 Mar 23, 2011
Alright, I chilled on the exclamation marks, added the footnotes, and did a few more things according to the Pee Review I was given. In your opinion, do you think it's good enough yet for a feature, or is there anything else you want me to do? — JCM 22:59, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

Lyrithya's signature

Dude, you should so totally be banned for huffing Lyrithya's signature. I was just going to point out a serious spelling mistake in one of the mouseover-texts of her signature in the forum she has recently started, and now this. Schamschi, 19:33, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

I know, I don't know what I was thinking. I'll begin flogging myself immediately.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 19:39 Mar 23, 2011
Alright Mister, you might have thought that nobody would notice, that you could fool me into thinking that the changes you made to Lyrithya's signature were just an accident and that you would get away with this, but you thought wrong. I don't know what is going on, but it is apparent that you are involved in some conspiracy which involves, in whatever way, the user Zork Implementor L. Maybe you thought that, because Zork Implementor L's signature was last used on April 1, 2009, that nobody would make the connection between Zork Implementor L's signature and your changes to Lyrithya's signature. Maybe you are intending to dispose of Zork Implementor L and replace him with Lyrithya. But whatever your twisted aims are, I will not allow them to succeed, and you will now be reported to ban patrol. So much for "I don't know what I was thinking". Schamschi, 23:47, March 23, 2011 (UTC)
He wasn't trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes. Skully is too stupid to ever attempt that. Fnoodle, however, may have done it on Skully's account. Fnoodle is awesome. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 23:52, March 23, 2011 (UTC)
Oh my god, why didn't I see this before? April 1! This must have something to do with the current efforts going on regarding this year's April's Fool joke! Schamschi, 23:58, March 23, 2011 (UTC)
Spelling mistake?! Where? I have restored it so that you may resume, now tell me where! 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 00:40, 24 March 2011
Hehe, I thought you would be getting crazy about it. But yes, indeed, unless it is intentionally, there is a mistake in the mouseover-text of "KUN": It should be "You wear a mask for so long, you forget who you really were beneath it...", and not "whom you really were...". Schamschi, 00:48, March 24, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, that was in the original quote. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 01:12, 24 March 2011
No, it wasn't. The quote is from the movie V for Vendetta (which I, incidentally, have seen), and the word should be "who" ("whom" wouldn't make sense). Just Google it, or, if you are too lazy busy, you can alternatively click this link. The only place were it is written "whom" is the website you copied it from. BTW, I think you should check the MDA-mouseover... Schamschi, 01:45, March 24, 2011 (UTC)
It is? I don't remember that part. Why do you assume everything comes from online sources? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 02:12, 24 March 2011
What do you mean, I assume that everything comes from online sources? You said "whom" was in the original quote, so I assumed you copied it from that website, because it was the only Google result for the quote with the (incorrect) "whom", that was all. Schamschi, 02:25, March 24, 2011 (UTC)
I'm suddenly convinced that Schamschi is Watson.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 03:15 Mar 24, 2011
Yeah, this discussion is getting tedious (and the indentations unaesthetically big), we should get back to accusing Dr. Skullthumper of plotting murders and conspiracies. I was just getting to the conclusion that the conspiracy was indeed a plan for this year's April's Fool joke, and that Lyrithya had been in on it all along, which would explain why she voted against all the ideas in Forum:April_Fools'_2011. Schamschi, 03:25, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

Game and

I'm just saying, but I'm glad that some one else does not appreciate the +r now needed to access #Uncyclopedia ಠ_ಠ . You are amazing. Anyway, How did you make Fnoodle the bot? I am quite impressed by that if it is automated. Also could you please validate this please? Again thanks. - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 20:38, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

Actually my give-a-shit-o-meter just stopped reading anything in regards to the +r issue. Don't get me wrong, I think it's dumb and full of stupid, but it's not worth getting all UP IN ARMS about. Unless someone decides it's a permanent change, in which case, obviously, it will be on and I will be forced to bring it.
And the thing about userspace is that no one gives a crap what you do in it. You can copy someone else's userspace, or copy articles into your userspace, or store porn, or run around naked. Don't give a second thought about it, just do it.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:23 Mar 23, 2011
As for Fnoodle, it's just a regular ol' account I use wikipedia:Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser to run. You can use AWB on your own account, too, but keep in mind that mass edits clog up recent changes something fierce. The only thing that makes Fnoodle special is that it has a bot flag, which you can get by talking to anyone in #wikia. The bot flag hides edits by default in RC, which eliminates the problem.
For now, though, feel free to load up AWB (you'll want the most recent svn version, not 5.0.0.0) and give it a whirl on a more controlled basis.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:26 Mar 23, 2011


Thanks. I was thinking of making my own bot one day. Anyway, I'm glad I can copy and paste Userspace. (・∀・) - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 08:06, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

To say sorry for treating you like a n00b,I give you a lollipop.

Yeah, that's fine. Enjoy your lollipop. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 23:08, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

I fucking hate your guts

Except when I don't. --CharitwoTalk 07:16, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

Well I mean that just goes without saying.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 07:17 Mar 24, 2011

"Minor" edits

That was the longest 5 minutes of my life! I took a shit and drank an entire bottle of Coca-cola in that time! Anyway, The last time I made a minor edit on Uncyclopedia was on a major formatting fix. I don't think Some people where happy with that. - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 23:20, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

Basically, marking an edit as minor is a way of preventing yourself from flooding Recent Changes (since hiding minor edits is optional there). If you make an edit and immediately make two edits right after it, in which all you do are correct your own mistake, you ought to mark them as minor. If you're doing something major to a page, you shouldn't mark it as minor, otherwise it's like you're hiding what you're doing. Basic rule of thumb, you shouldn't be making a bunch of major edits in the same minute.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:23 Mar 26, 2011
Paint1

...this is obnoxious.

I think I see why now.... - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 23:25, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

A fair bit, yes. That's also what the preview button is for. Minor edits don't solve everything - for example, you edit conflicted me twice trying to add a comment to that forum. If you'd hit "preview" beforehand, it wouldn't have happened. The More You Know.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:28 Mar 26, 2011

You know, Your userpage is on VFD? Just saying, in case you didn't think. - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 23:37, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

I just got that "new messages" message twice, because you couldn't get it right the first time (apparently). Also, I knew. Also, you could have linked that directly instead of using external link syntax. Also, when you use external link syntax, you only need one space between the URL and the linked text. Whew, glad I got all that out of my system...  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:40 Mar 26, 2011

Can a button be beaten into a bloke's head? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 00:07, 27 March 2011

I'm sorry, I'm just illy educated in the subjects that where related to my ban. But anyway, don't worry I'm going to be pay a lot more attention to the "minor edit" button. Fucking please don't Edit conflict.... - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 00:29, March 27, 2011 (UTC)

tl;dr version:
1. Use the preview button.
2. Don't edit someone's talkpage twice in a row, because it gives them two notifications.
3. If you absolutely must make a correction you somehow missed after using the preview button, mark the edit as minor.
Follow these three simple steps and you'll remain a free user for the rest of your life. Probably.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 00:31 Mar 27, 2011
Assuming you don't do anything else, that is. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 00:32, 27 March 2011

Ok, thanks. That probably means I'll fuck up something different. Always the case. Isn't Lyrithya supposed to be banning me now? this message probably isn't going to go through.... Well, anyway thanks! (・∀・) - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 00:36, March 27, 2011 (UTC)


FUCK AN EDIT CONFLICT AND AAAAAAAAA.......

Generally, after an edit conflict, one puts their comment underneath the previous user's comment. Also, your signature should go all the way at the end of your comment, even if you feel the need to comment in all caps on your edit conflict. I can honestly say I've never seen a newbie fail quite as hard as you're doing now. You have a true talent, my friend.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 00:52 Mar 27, 2011

For the UncyclopediaTV forum, he kept doing the same thing. It is starting to get very irritating and we are all losing our patience. If you are changing a few words, then you put minor edit. There's a little boxon the bottom. That's why it's there. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 01:24, March 27, 2011 (UTC)

(edit conflict - 'buxon'?) Oh, for crying out loud... anyhow, is he a newbie? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 01:27, 27 March 2011
I think so. He also has earned the right to be banned on Smakapedia. Lyrithya, being the great admin dear you are, please suggest a ban for Another n00b on Smakapedia. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 01:30, March 27, 2011 (UTC)
Picard disapproves
NO ONE GIVES A SHIT ABOUT YOUR PATHETIC GODDAMN PROTO-WIKI NOR WILL THEY EVER GIVE A SHIT ABOUT IT. Even if this weren't the case (which it is), an offense on one wiki should never mean a ban on another. Seriously, focus your efforts on being a productive member of an already-established wiki or wikis. Creating a new wiki bleeds arrogance until it is eventually clotted up by failure.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:35 Mar 27, 2011
*runs away crying* --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 01:39, March 27, 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, man. I tried being subtle about it, but you just haven't been getting it. Contributors to one wiki don't want to keep hearing about another wiki all the time. Especially if it's one with no unique purpose. And it sucks starting up your own individual project only to have it fail due to disinterest.
But Uncyc isn't here to see you fail. If you choose to contribute here as you've been doing, you will have an audience and (if you don't already) friends and a support base. If you make another ill-defined wiki, you're not going to have anything but a waste of energy. And who knows - you might start your own wiki sometime down the road, you might not, but either way, editing on one with an established userbase is only going to help you when you decide to make one in the future.
So do yourself a favor; edit here. Do the rest of us a favor; stop talking about that other thing.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:42 Mar 27, 2011
*finishes crying* So, what do you think about Lolliflix? --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 01:46, March 27, 2011 (UTC)
It looks like you're taking a bunch of YouTube videos and linking them from a page in userspace. Am I missing something?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:49 Mar 27, 2011
Not just YouTube, i'm making parody movies too. You'll see. It's a mix of sorts. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 01:52, March 27, 2011 (UTC)
I think you ought to focus on writing before you take on big projects like that. Also, check out already established video series, like 5secondfilms, or SMBC Theater, or How It Should Have Ended. The list goes on...  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:54 Mar 27, 2011

April fools!....  ?

Hello, I was wondering "What is Uncyclopedia doing for April fool's day?". And I decided to ask an responsible Admin, so here you go. I was hoping for something chaotic. - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 15:03, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

We're making a Conservapedia reskin. See it here. --Tophat headless 15:41, March 31, 2011 (UTC)


Oh yeah, that's REALLY funny. Of course, a reskin plagiarised from a wiki which isn't even available in my country (¬_¬) . - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 15:45, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

Man, I have no idea. Maybe you should try asking a responsible admin next time.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 17:12 Mar 31, 2011

Oh, no, no. No one bother to help me polish this turd. -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us 17:22, Mar. 31, 2011

That time I got banned by an admin during my sojourn on another admin's talk page

Dude, that ban was so out of the blue. Like, WTF?

So there I was

about to harass some admin on his talk page, over something nobody really needs to know about. You know, like annoying troll shit.

And then this fucking block message

pops up, telling me that another overzealous admin, instead of politely warning me, had outright banned me for "talking to myself" on VFH.

So I

immediately, lawyer-ed up, and prepared to confront him on IRC, only to realize he had anticipated that very move, and had reduced my ban settings.

I spent my entire ban period banging the desk in frustration. This resulted in me getting a major sinistral external abrasion and a severed brachialis radial.

No, seriously. I got banned for COMMENTING ON VFH! --Scofield 09:34, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

It sucks even more since I've decided to get into the "web development" business (I say this with a heavy amount of irony), where working around its lack of respect for standards or CSS3 compatibility makes me want to crack a pipe over someone's skull. There's something in that, I think... thumping heads, hitting skulls...
Anyway, get a real browser and stop contributing to Microsoft's dominance in browser usage. I recommend Chrome, it can import all your settings and is actually easier to use. Plus, it actually renders webpages the way they are supposed to be rendered.

Hello Skully,

I was wondering what was going to be today's feature yesterday, and then I just went to look and that was fucking hilarious!! I laughed my ass off so hard, I dropped my can of coke on my new shoes and ruined them. OMFG I'm just glad it's not me being humiliated. But anyway, can you see any whitespace now?? - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 13:54, April 25, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, Frosty isn't being humiliated here. If he were, I'm sure he wouldn't have voted for the article when it was on VFH. It's a loving parody of his tendency to make long lists supporting the de-opping of our most beloved administrators. He got me back for it, though; now I have a special place on his ignore list. Namely, the majority of it.
I don't see whitespace, which is a good thing. I should mention, however, that a single linebreak in HTML also serves no purpose. Only a double linebreak, or the <br /> tag, makes a difference. But that's a minor thing. Speaking of minor things, good job on the use of minor edit, though you really should try to avoid double-editing someone's talkpage. Keep up the good marginally less sucky work.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 14:04 Apr 25, 2011
Also, one more thing: What is this?? I was looking through some very old village dump archives and I found a link to this. What is it supposed to be about? - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 14:23, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
Google says it's in Vietnamese. Other than that I have no clue.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 14:25 Apr 25, 2011
Whoops! I gave you the wrong link. I wrote Vi: when I actually meant Vd:. Sorry about that. - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 14:27, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
Looks like a V Day reskin. Also, you just edited twice again (and managed to edit conflict me). Watch that, will you?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 14:30 Apr 25, 2011
It says on it's description page "Victory in Euroipods Day", but I don't see how that's relevant to anything. It's a good re-skin, but I think this is the best re-skin evar. - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 14:33, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
Do you know what V-Day is? I even linked it to you because I figured you wouldn't understand. Also, you added two indents where you only should have added one *grinds teeth*  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 14:36 Apr 25, 2011
I read it now, but it is a weak joke that doesn't really warrant a re-skin. And what the heck was with the dodgy Vi: link? it looked vandalised. - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 14:40, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, V-Day. Definitely a "weak joke". Not an important historical event at all. And the Vi: link is a fucking translation.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 14:42 Apr 25, 2011
No, I meant it in the way of "coulda been better". And the vietnamese translation page looked nothing like the uncyc main page, assuming it was just the vietnamese uncyclopedia's various differences to our one. - Barn-owl LOL vandalz 14:52, April 25, 2011 (UTC)

Fnoodle requires ops in order for him to perform site maintenance properly, as many pages on the wiki are currently protected. Also he will eventually have an admin-only control panel that allows other administrators to control how he operates, which ideally he would be able to edit as well. However, in order for him to be opped, there must be a vote. Since he's not a regular user, he doesn't need to go through the typical voting process like everyone else. Since we have more than enough ops at the moment I've hijacked VFS for the purpose. Good?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 03:38 May 01, 2011

Shabidoo

I noticed Shabidoo got a one day ban for his comments on VFS regards admin votes and whether that was elitist. I know it isn't, that is the system but I thought Shabidoo was being humorous. Perhaps a sharp reminder to tell him that VFS wasn't the place to continue with that conversation and then see if he tried to carry on the argument? I know it's a judgment call and no situation is identical. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 13:27, May 2, 2011 (UTC)

It's not? From Wikipedia: "Elitism is the belief or attitude that some individuals, who form an elite — a select group of people with intellect, wealth, specialized training or experience, or other distinctive attributes — are those whose views on a matter are to be taken the most seriously or carry the most weight or those who view their own views as so." --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 13:30 May 2 2011
And from Merriam-Webster:
Elitism
  1. leadership or rule by an elite
  2. the selectivity of the elite; especially : snobbery <elitism in choosing new members>
  3. consciousness of being or belonging to an elite

(heavy sigh) Someday, I'll write an essay - a really long one, well-researched, with more diff links than you can shake a stick at - about why Uncyclopedia is not a democracy and wouldn't be any fun to participate in it if it were one. For a short version of the point I'll eventually get across, see User talk:Famine. Or an even shorter version, democracy is a lot of bickering and not a lot of getting things done, and that's boring as all get-out.

Romartus: The situation was resolved on that person's talkpage. I really thought they were being a dick purposefully. Dickery tends to give me an itchy banning trigger - particularly using voting pages to express one's opinion aside from that which one is voting about - and it looked like a jab at the person they were conversing with (e.g. me) rather than actual humor. However, I was proven wrong, and we've come to an understanding.

Electrified mocha chinchilla: You are the number one reason that essay is going to get written someday. But I'll give you a quick preview version of it: in a site such as this, there is a specific pool of users who are trusted with higher-level functions. Their actions, by definition, hold more weight. Two votes instead of one is just another representation of that weight. (Hell, I'd fully support giving b'crats three votes and letting them outvote me.) It isn't elitism, at least, not any more elitism than "I can delete a page and you can't". There are lots of things admins can do that users can't. That's the nature of the site's structure.

You also seem to be operating under the grossly incorrect assumption that this "weighted voting" system somehow cheats users out of (for example) adminship. In doing so, you fail to realize just how imprecise voting on Uncyclopedia really is. It's a far more symbolic measure than you make it out to be, a kind of happy medium between something that is "discussion only" (and if you've ever participated in a "discussion" on Wikipedia you will realize exactly how bloody long it takes for a "discussion" to reach any meaningful conclusion) and something that is purely voting (where user input and suggestions are disregarded and only votes are counted).

Voting is imprecise on a wiki for any number of reasons. It seems strange that a user who has only registered a week ago carries the same weight as a user who's been here for three years. There aren't any ways to make sure that every single voter is actually a unique person, either; sockpuppetry is totally possible. Or even if they are unique voters there's the possibility that one voter has convinced their otherwise indifferent friends to jump on a bandwagon.

It's going to be an imprecise vote anyway with a hell of an error bound. One way to offset that error bound is to come up with a complicated Spang-like mathematical system that weights each user according to their time on-wiki, their number of edits, participation in past votes, and so on and so forth. Such an algorithm would become quite the heated issue for obvious reasons. So instead, we've got a system that tries to offset that error bound in a different manner, by weighting the votes of trusted users.

And again we could have made a group of "trusted users", maybe adding templates or categories to users who fell into the "trusted user" group, except that would only lead to even further discussion and bickering about the criteria and why such-and-such a user isn't in that group despite (insert reasoning here). So another shortcut is taken: take an already established user group that the community has already decided to be trusted with higher-level site functions and give them weighted votes.

It's logical, not elitist. And you might protest that the admins are running the site, at which point I'd simply hit myself on the head and say that's what they're supposed to be doing. The community has input, of course. A rather strong amount of input, especially compared to other large wikisites. People start forums and admins carry out the will of the majority. Someone complained about featured article titles not being on the front page and lo and behold an admin fixed it.

The wiki is organic. That's the point I'm trying to make here. The users cough up suggestions and the admins implement them accordingly. Sometimes the users are right. Sometimes the admins are right. Both parties are prone to major fuck-ups. It's not a perfect system, but neither is anything else.

Anyway I think I've said enough. None of it is entirely as accurate or as articulate as I'd hoped to make it. My language isn't tight enough; there's still a lot of holes in my argument; that's why an essay will, someday, be forthcoming on the issue. But I will say this: I was a user, and I am an admin. I love(d) being both. Never felt like I was being ruled over by an elitist class. I can try to understand your point of view, and I can certainly respond to your arguments, but I don't think I'll ever share whatever it is that you feel against the admins.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 08:53 May 03, 2011

In any case, the whole thing was resolved. Skullthump said sorry for the misunderstanding, and I made my amends for having goofed around on VFS of which I had no idea it was such a sacred place to make no jokes.
That being said, I didnt say it was eletist, I asked if allowing the people in power to have more votes was elitist. To which Skullthumper said "Yes" and nothing more. Was that a joke? I dont know. That doesn't mean I think it is elitist (though it could possibly be).
Any system where the people with power have more say over who gets to have power (not over daily administration or advanced policy), is, in danger of becoming some self sustaining power group. Especially when theres no system to vote these people out and there is no limit on how long they are in power. It seems like those with power have a whole lot of say with who will get power. Which reflects they way they think and want to run thing, giving them more weight than other people who do different things, have different views and represent a large amount of people with a concern for who runs things.
This still doesnt mean I think it results in a power group here, only that it very well could be. There is simply a danger of that happenig. Im not here long enough to know if thats the way it is. Still, in my humble opinion giving anyone a weightier vote is done rarely in any organisation except in company boardrooms (where people make money), corporate shareholder meetings (where people lose money), the German Provincial-head parliament (a very boring place) and the Chinese Politburo. I never see any reason to make a vote weighter than any other no matter the justification, no matter the excuse, no matter how experienced anyone else may be. If someone bothers to vote, they certainly cared enough to express their view, are relating their own experiences theyve had with some candidate admin or higher up and their vote as a user is no less valid than an admin, especially if its a case of asking users to hand over their trust to aministrators or higherup. But im probably the only person on the website who sees it that way, so no point in going any further, nor considering this much more than me explaining why I wrote it out. Having the system this way, im completely uninsterested in voting on things or playing politics. --ShabiDOO 22:34, May 9, 2011 (UTC)
I've already pointed out several possible justifications for the weighted vote system, so I won't go into that. I will say this, though: what's so terrible about a self-perpetuating power group? Personally, I think such a thing would run the site more smoothly than if people were "voted out" over time. It'd always be the same story - new users get opped, spend a long time adjusting to things, and only after a month or two do they actually feel comfortable deleting articles or banning people. By that time, it's already too late.
Uncyclopedia requires a very tough hand to maintain, lest the bullshit pile up. It makes more sense for such a quickly-changing website to entrust its operations to a certain group of users and let that group of users have the most say in who joins their rankings. A typical user's judgement on the matter is indeed peanuts compared to people who have both a) been on the site for a long time and more importantly b) understand what the job is like.
This place wouldn't work if it were a democracy. I don't agree with everything he says, but I will quote Famine on this issue: "No collaborative projects work well without an absolute dictator involved and at the helm." It's true. When the admin crew is less active, Uncyclopedia virtually always degrades into user cliques and drama. When they're more active, the community works as part of a larger unit and drama is dispelled extremely quickly. Before you scream bias, I've witnessed this behavior from both sides - as a user, and as an admin. If I were a user, I'd be saying the same thing (and I'd be surprised if somewhere along the line I hadn't expressed a similar view prior to my oppage).
Active admins and a controlling usergroup = shit gets done; equal votes / democracy / what have you = shit dissolves into arguments and factions. This isn't pure speculation. I've watched it happen, and I've watched it get fixed. I just happen to be on the fixing side, this time around.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:56 May 09, 2011
Skullthumper, what you dont seem to get is that im not screaming "bias" nor anything in particular. Take a step back: Ive asked questions and made illusions to things. Ive made no claims about the website or how it works, im pointing out that things "could" be or become some self-perpetuating elite. Im not behind the scenes and these elusive things "I don't know about as a user" are obviously that very thing: unknown to me...so how can I comment with asurity? Maybe the voting system as it is...is the best way...I did't say it was not, nor did I scream anything.
PS I admire how you and Lyrithya are capable of saying "oops pity there was a misunderstanding". This is nice efective ways of dealing with things. I myself have said sorry numerous times on my talk page. So thanks :) --ShabiDOO 23:10, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

There is a wide gap between having legitimate complaints and 75% of one's edits to the wiki being outright trolling.

Actually, in his defense, only 50% of his edits to the wiki are trolling. The other 50% are more direct reminders of how terrible the site, and everyone on it except himself, Colin and Dexter, are.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 00:35 May 06, 2011

I do think you're, you know, capitalizing on an opportunity here. It was just an edit summary, and a pretty accurate one (if rather strongly worded). Let's just all calm down here. —rc (t) 00:38, May 6, 2011 (UTC)
If you feel that way, I defer to the wisdom of other admins; please undo my ban. I, however, strongly feel (even more strongly now looking at his contributions) that he is on the wiki more to insult and offend people than anything else. I'll admit I've taken into account his past behavior by administering said ban, and perhaps that was unfair, but just once I'd like to see a vote go through without his cursing everyone out.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 00:40 May 06, 2011
Children please... look, it was just a 1 hour ban so how about this: if you think he can bear to sit it out, surely you can bear to get your arse on IRC and talk it out, if not, just unban him. -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 00:41, May 6, 2011 (UTC)
I don't have access to IRC currently. Again, like I said, if someone feels I am that much in the wrong, undo what I did. I'm really okay with that. But I'm not going to undo it, because I strongly believe that in order for e|m|c to become a more productive member of the community... again... his behavior requires slightly more regulation than it is currently given.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 00:43 May 06, 2011
I'm just going to let your ban expire. He could probably use the extra half-hour to chill out himself. —rc (t) 00:46, May 6, 2011 (UTC)
Sorry about the controversy, guys. I'll definitely talk it out with other admins next time just to be super-duper-safety-sure I'm not treating e|m|c unfairly.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 00:49 May 06, 2011
I think the more important thing is giving warning and trying to talk it out with the user first. If he/she still abuses you, then use your own judgment for banning. I also talked to EMC about this on IRC, just so you know I'm not singling you out. —rc (t) 00:56, May 6, 2011 (UTC)
In fairness, he's received a great deal of warning about his... extremely hateful comments throughout the site, which is the only reason I moved towards the action of banning. I feel like he's not "getting it". I mean, all users make hateful comments now and again, myself included (hell myself especially) but that's virtually all he does whenever he's let anywhere near a voting page. He crossed himself out of last month's VFS, only to make a point about how much the voting system sucks. Most of his VFH votes are along the lines of "I only voted for this article because I liked the author," which is nothing more than pointed sarcasm about how supposedly corrupt we are. When he claims a vote about user powers is illegitimate it's usually because he suspects everyone's only voting for someone because he/she is their friend. Which brings me to tonight's edit summary, where he assumed bad faith (the new vote was started just to annoy everyone) over a legitimate concern (there was a great deal of joking and unclear votes, making an accurate tally on an important issue - cratship - impossible). It's starting to become A Problem, I think. If I suspected it could be talked out, I would. But I think we're beyond that.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:04 May 06, 2011
I'm banned on IRC too, and I don't whine about it. EMC is a whiny whiner. --Chupa chups(talk) 01:12, 6 May 2011
Yes, hello, please come in and insert your entirely irrelevant opinion. This is about the site, not IRC. If I were capable of getting on right now I'd see about unbanning ya, but that's another matter.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:17 May 06, 2011
That's fair criticism and I know his edits often toe the line between acceptable and abrasive, but I still think bans-as-warnings are often more vindictive than productive. If the voting-page patterns continue, we could always talk about Flammable's Office. —rc (t) 02:20, May 6, 2011 (UTC)

Guys, guys, guys....I won't defend some of Mr Chinchilla's past activities, but he has served his time and should be given a fair chance to demonstrate that he is a reformed character. We ALL make mistakes and occasionally situations escalate out of all proportions placing us in a situation that we may later regret. Emmy can be a little quick to bite (but then so can a number of people who have managed to bypass the hurdles to reach adminhood), sometimes we just all need to calm the fuck down and find a way to move forward.
Most of the "conflict" here is due to the fact that many people actually care what happens to the site, and merely have differing ways of projecting that. Each and every time that we stick someone back into Flammable's Office we have to reflect that we have failed to connect with people or to recognise (in some cases valid) concerns. In the recent VFS one of my votes went to EMC because I recognise certain qualities that he does have that would benefit the site. None of us here are perfect though, and we all have foibles that are reflected in how we deal with others. Some prefer to use confrontation, others diplomacy. Somewhere inbetween there's a balance. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
I don't suspect that changes the fact that if anyone besides e|m|c acted in the way e|m|c does (by attacking the community with the majority, if not the entirety, of his edits at or near voting pages) they would be banned without question. While I agree e|m|c has much to offer Uncyclopedia - running the Facebook page, the shop, and continuously bursting with ideas about how to promote us or make the site better - his behavior around voting borders on intolerable. If it were not for that, his sarcasm and inflammatory attacks in regards to voting, I for once would have no difficulty with his being here, especially on account of the many positive things he brings to Uncyclopedia. But I think that doesn't outright excuse the voting issue. I hope against hope that he will simply stop the trolling around voting pages and realize that the only way his demands would be met is if we completely changed how everything around Uncyclopedia works, which would, in effect, make it no longer Uncyclopedia.
If the trolling stops, there will no longer be any issues. Again, I can't stress enough how much I hope this will be the case. But I think we can all get tired of being shouted at and accused of conspiracy. As I said to him previously, some of us do vote for articles because they're funny, and do vote for people to be ops/crats because we think they are qualified for the job. While there may be people who do not have such a moral compass, there is also no way to regulate morality in a community where voting is open to everyone; "corruption" will be rampant until someone invents a machine that can extract pure, unadulterated opinion from users and slap that on the voting pages instead.
My point is that there is little that can be done about the problems e|m|c continuously complains about short of gutting our entire structure and starting anew. As such, biting sarcasm and shouting/ignoring everyone who disagrees with him on IRC is somewhat, I think, unacceptable behavior. Again, I feel I must stress that we wouldn't let anyone else get away with as many personal and communal attacks as e|m|c does. Certainly he does bring up some good points - I have had entire discussions with him on the subjects of voting, etcetera. But for Sophia's sake, we can't lose sight of the fact that he's still making attacks. And attacks scare people off a lot more easily than a biased vote.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 15:25 May 06, 2011

Minor edit button

The minor edit button is a check box at the bottom of an editing page for typo/formatting edits, correct?--Dorkadorkreece 15:22, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

Correct. If you find yourself adding / removing / changing less than 100 characters every time you edit, you're not doing it right. If you do happen to be doing a minor edit like that, tick the box. But preferably you ought to be making fewer edits in a row; it's unnecessary and also clogs up Recent Changes. (And when you do it on a talkpage like you just did to mine, it gives me a "new messages" banner three times instead of one; it also causes edit conflicts.) So, please use the Preview button to preview your edit before saving, and if it doesn't look quite right, keep previewing your edit until it does. If that fails you and you still need to make a minor edit, mark it as such with the checkbox.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 15:27 May 15, 2011

Hogfather is definitely a challenge to understand what with all that duality of gods and belief and whatnot, something that's more fully explained in Small Gods. Hogfather took me about three read-throughs to understand, although you might be better off watching the movie made of it. The easiest reads are definitely the more recent Moist von Lipwig series (Going Postal, Making Money); I'd recommend those until you get more used to Discworld's mutable sense of reality.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 06:35 May 24, 2011
Okay, but I only found Making money at english. The small gods I`ve read already in finnish. So I read also Hogfather at finnish before the english one. Good books, both. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 13:19, 24 May, 2011 (UTC)

A question, if I find, for example, an old 2005 feature which is ravaged, and revert it in the history back to an earlier copy, will that remove the protection or does the protection ride thru reverts? And did Fnoodle protect the older features (I know there is a separation in the archives between mid-2007 and previous features). Thanks! Aleister 12:27 25-5-'11

As I said in the forum, yes, please revert articles back to their last-good state if you find them in shambles. That won't remove the protection as protection is totally separate from the article history. And also Fnoodle protected every single page in Category:Featured, which should have included all the features. All of them. Unless something got miscategorized.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 15:51 May 25, 2011
If they've had their feature templates removed at some point, that would miscategorise them. So if you find any, Al, let this guy know. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 19:48, 25 May 2011
What she said; also, pages that have {{FA}} on them that shouldn't. Both are pretty hard to find, since we don't keep some kind of master list of features. I mean, we kind of do, but there's no way to be sure that what's listed here is accurate either. (Also the ones from 2010 onward are done by DPL which is no better than going off of the category.)  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 21:33 May 25, 2011

Fixing the search box ...

Hi there. Currently there are no search results while typing in the search box. Those monkeys @Wikia fucked that up I think.

Two variables aren't defined so the autosuggestion script throws errors. You can fix that by defining those vars in MediaWiki:Common.js (needs some time to work for everone because of caching). I would put those vars right on top. This is the "code":

window.wgMWSuggestTemplate="http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/api.php?action=opensearch\x26search={searchTerms}\x26namespace={namespaces}\x26suggest";
window.wgSearchNamespaces=[0];

--Nachteule 11:45, May 26, 2011 (UTC)

Yesss, it works :)
And no, it's not harmful at all. Take a look at the source code of german uncyclopedia where you will finde both variables [1] --Nachteule 16:32, May 26, 2011 (UTC)

Unnecessary dickery

You and I used to get along, but I have been feeling as of late that there's some serious miscommunication between you and I. On this forum, I feel like you became very personal and condescending to those of us disagreeing with the proposal, likening us to "...a bunch of political science students, commenting on policy without taking the history into account as the proper context of our present state" (you've made similar analogies on IRC before). You then went so far as to call me either an "idiot or a troll" and then made it clear you wouldn't address the issue when I asked you what political beliefs you seem to have noticed people promoting in that forum. I also take serious issue with your belief that anyone disagreeing with you is "whining". You recently banned me for a VFH comment that was not meant to be a criticism of Uncyclopedia at all -- it was meant to be a joke. Misunderstandings are ok, but you promptly banned me for it instead of trying to be diplomatic (I consider this matter resolved, and only point it out as another example of this tension). In all of these cases I feel that I have been nothing but reasonable with you and if you believe I have not been reasonable towards you then I ask you to point to specific examples (as I have done just now to you) so we can better understand what we mutually seem to be taking out of context. If you believe any of my grievances above are a misunderstanding on my part, then please feel free to clarify your comments. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 17:14 May 26 2011

Man, remember when you were this guy? Whatever happened to that guy.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 17:17 May 26, 2011
Famine left and took a piece of me with him. But seriously, why are you being a dick towards me? --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 17:24 May 26 2011

Content namespaces

I'm too slow writing and I'll get editing conflicts all the time. So here's my point:

You can modify the sidebar per namspace with JavaScript, so "Random Page" will only show pages from that namespace:

So there's no need to mix all content alltogether.

MediaWiki can show the number of pages per namespace ({{PAGESINNS:}}), but it's disabled by default [2]. If Wikia won't enable this, we could get those numbers with the help of DPL I think.

If you have the number of pages per namespace, each Uncyclomedia-project could show its pages on their mainpage. I hope my english is somehow understandable ;) --Nachteule 16:55, May 26, 2011 (UTC)

I know (all those things), but the point is that our faux-namespaces are already mixed in, so I don't understand why we can't just throw the lot in. And Wikia won't enable anything called "SlowParserFunctions" :) They're already horribly annoyed by ParserFunctions as it is. If you can do that with DPL, though, it'd be a major breakthrough.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 16:58 May 26, 2011
My concern is usability. Imagine you are in Wikipedia, click on Random Page (expecting an article) and and up in WikiNews or so. Quite disturbing. I think it would be better to mimic Wikimedias different projects as good as possible (we have the same problem in our wiki, that all project-parodies ar in fact namespaces instead of differnet sites).
You can still show off all those funky numbers on main page (27.xxx articles, 10.xxx UnNews, ...)
I think it's possible to better handle the faux-namespaces with JavaScript (so they behave more like real namespaces)
I'll try something out in my local wiki (will cripple its functionality as Wikia does and try to get around it). --Nachteule 17:18, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
Hey, if we could have separate article counts, all the better. That'd be my dream solution. I thought it was impossible, was all.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 17:20 May 26, 2011

Don't let the terrorists win

What the monkeys? With all the good things you've done lately, and the innovations you've come up with, right in the middle of it you eat some loco weed and begin a killing spree (can I watch?). If you leave now you let the terrorists win, and then if they leave because of you then they let the terrorists win (a viscious circlejerk). So please leave for, say, two hours, and then come back! There, a perfect solution. Yay! Aleister 19:18 26-5-'11

I hope this is just a one day flip Dr. Skullthumper. Your recent ideas in Village Dump were very good and I was also impressed that you apoligised to a contributor when you revoked your own ban. I don't often see that here. So I trust you haven't packed away your tent and mosquito net and will make a speedy return. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 09:25, May 27, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, dude really. Your "parting comments" were nothing short of a slap in the face. I'd hate to see you leaving on such a bitter note. --Scofield & Dudes 19:08, May 27, 2011 (UTC)

Sincere thanks for supporting one or more of these articles on VFH:

A brief reflection on my even briefer absence

As should now be painfully obvious to anyone with a brain, I never actually did ragequit. I haven't edited that much in the past several days, but that had far more to do with work and other real life things than Uncyclopedia being the worst. (Which it is, by the way. I can't really ragequit if I already know I'm on the worst site ever, can I? Any offense taken would be pretty much my own fault.)

A few days ago I was in the difficult position of proving that at least one certain individual in the forums was purposefully using irrational arguments and ad hominem attacks to incite me, being the forum's creator. Such a practice is commonly known on the interwebs as trolling. Now, as everyone knows, the best trolls never admit that they're trolls. Even if you think you can corner them with logical contradictions and the like, they will squirm out of the situation by pretending to be as genuine about their supposedly good intentions as possible. Never will they admit that they enjoy upsetting people, because if they do, the fun ends.

So I certainly couldn't prove anything by sitting around arguing all day. I mean, yes, I could have ignored them, but really, there comes a point where you want to make it public knowledge what these people are doing. The problem is, it's virtually impossible to tell an expert troll from someone with genuine opinions and concern - except for one tell that even the most expert of trolls fall to from time to time.

And that tell is revealed simply by ragequitting in the most cliched manner possible.

So I did. Sort of. Actually I've more or less been here the entire time, since I had no intention of quitting Uncyclopedia in the least, mostly working on some Fnoodle scripts in the background. And while I was here, I observed exactly what I had hoped to observe.

A person with a true concern will not stop discussing the issue until they are either satisfied with an answer or satisfied that whatever they do won't make a difference. A troll, conversely, will stop the moment they get their desired reaction, one that has little or nothing to do with the actual issue being discussed. In this case, that desired reaction was me flipping the fuck out.

And in an almost depressingly predictable manner, said troll or trolls immediately stopped posting on that forum, and instead moved onto another forum I had created recently, speaking of myself and all who voted "for" in the most condescending tone possible and pressing us to undo what had been done for the weakest reason I've ever heard. It was a slip-up, one brought about by the overconfidence following their previous "victory". Again, I must stress, if this had been a real person with a real concern, they would have continued to voice their concern in the appropriate forum; instead they simply moved on to wreak havoc elsewhere. That is troll behavior.

Additionally, it should be noted that said parties increased the frequency of their on-site edits dramatically during this time, further indicating that they were sticking around for the "show" I suppose you could call it. One of them later went on to dredge up another drama-filled subject, the one of UnNews, again very coincidentally around the same time.

Obviously this isn't proof. If I had conclusive evidence of anything it wouldn't have taken me the last several paragraphs to elaborate. I won't hide the fact that this isn't the most airtight of arguments; that it is flimsy and opinionated. But anyone who's been around online communities for a few times will almost certainly agree that what I have described here are telltale signs of trolling instead of genuine concerns or arguments. And I think that's enough, really. I've proven it to myself, for myself, and I don't think I need to take this matter any further.

Anyway, thanks for all the nice messages on here, but I wasn't actually gone! Crazy. You all must feel a bit silly and/or probably want to kill me. And I won't deny you that right, but I'm afraid you're going to have to wait your turn on that one.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:52 May 29, 2011

If you think he is a troll, why don't you just ban him? Established users have been banned or driven away for less. --Mn-z 01:35, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
No hardcore evidence, and being more than capable of talking his way out of any situation, it would only last for a matter of days, if not hours. It would only serve to kick up more drama, thereby giving him more attention, and more excuses to troll in other forums and IRC. It's a lose-lose situation. Or more accurately, an ignore-lose situation. Having made my point, I'm switching to "ignore".  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 01:41 May 30, 2011
If the system is scaring off useful, but occasionally abrasive users, but is letting sufficiently skilled trolls troll with impunity, something isn't working. --Mn-z 21:22, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
