"Wikipedia barnstars are the party participation medals of narcissistic sociopaths." -- Froglich

Welcome to Infogalactic: the planetary knowledge core! We know you will contribute greatly. Please read the editors' guidelines. Have fun! Crew (talk) 16:37, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

Thing were temporarily horrible, but they're all better now

As you may have noticed you were banned for a short period because one of the editors with sufficient privilege noticed a large amount of deletion in articles. I had also noticed it but noted it appeared to be balanced with additions in other articles.

I have reviewed all of the different types of your activity and I am largely sympathetic as I stated on my talk page.

I am going to reinstate access and request that you fix up the issue related to the redirects to the FALN individuals. The article redirected to now links to the former articles, which goes straight back to the same place. You could:

  1. Create stub articles for them that says see "the place you redirected to", or
  2. Remove the links in the article redirected to.-- Crew (talk) 02:33, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

I'll remove the links. (It would be nice if some of the Wikipedia bots that drop notifications regarding this sort of thing were in place...although I suppose even they might not notice if an article remains, albeit in redirect form.)

Anyway, all's well that ends well. --Froglich (talk) 07:17, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Your Global_Warming_Policy_Foundation edit

That was a heavy-handed edit. Can you explain your reasons for removing so much content? I'd like to see most of it restored. Rectified (talk) 17:30, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

I eliminated "coatracking" (the use of an article to predominantly display the piling-on of critics). Restore what you think fit. (Disclosure: My training is in weather (among the other Earth Sciences), and have held anthropogenic global warming theory to be propaganda since it was first mentioned in the 1980s. From within that context, the scent of "XYZs Always Lie" is very strong in my nostrils when regarding articles concerning the subject. The "Carbon trade" racket is a multi-trillion dollars per year scam enervating Western productivity and diverting the proceeds to socialist institutions and kleptocracies while propping up oil prices for the benefit of Russia and its Middle Eastern satrapies. During the last twenty years (and especially during the Obama administration), pretty much all of government-funded science worldwide has been thoroughly corrupted. Indeed, the SJW "invasions" of smaller walks of life all around us merely mirror earlier successful putsches within journalism and research. The dinosaur press and government-funded academia are enemy-held outposts.)--Froglich (talk) 17:51, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I'll put a piece of it back with edits, see what you think. I'm also moving this discussion over to the talk page for that article. Rectified (talk) 18:46, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
Works for me (and I've replied over there).--Froglich (talk) 19:31, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Search Engines

For a long while we were being overwhelmed by people doing weird searches, and there was also a bunch of sites doing api searches.

I probably over reacted and blocked the search engines from using the special pages that list new and changed articles.

I have just re-enabled those and will monitor them this week to see how it goes.

"Contradictions do not exist"

Nice to see another Rand fan here. She is eminently quotable.
