dude[edit]

what's with all the random all caps joke blocks.--Miekal 01:43, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Nothing really. I only do short blocks, and sysops do friendly blocks from time to time. But I admit, I may have went a little overboard with stuff like "GOD SEDUCED MARY" or "2015 WILL BE THE YEAR OF THE APOCALYPSE!!!!".--Palaeonictis (talk) 17:30, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Nice[edit]

Or rather, ᵑǃais! I enjoyed your pseudo-religious ramblings, but do you have anything which more closely resembles Yoruba or Mayan material? Say, a poem about Tlazolteotl or a goddess, with Sapphic innuendos (saphism is a must)? BobRoss (talk) 23:50, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Yes.--Palaeonictis (talk) 11:42, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
Or rather, I can cook something up from the cesspit I call a mind, but I`m not terribly familiar (read: not at all) with Yoruban mythology, and isn't Tlazolteotl Nahuatl rather than Mayan?--Palaeonictis (talk) 09:14, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
Sorry I took 2 months and 28 days to harass you Don Juan, I've been busy destroying reputations. Yes Tlazolteotl is Nahuatl, I got mixed up. Instead of Yoruban mythology, just use anything you're familiar with. Mí má kȍhà hńg gǀȕì ō ǁȁhìn-ā ō hȁ ō gǀè gù ǀxūúnnu. (talk) 22:34, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
@BobRoss Good, Bob, I`m most familiar with American Indian and Germanic mythologies, although the placeholder category "American Indian mythology" is quite a broad brush, considering that the demonym "American Indian" is comprised of hundreds of different, unrelated tribes that are often as far apart from each other as the Chinese are to the English (well, before the days of globalization anyways), one wouldn't place the Haudenosaunee together with the various Apachean tribes, right? The ethnonym of "Germanic" is also a broad brush, but not nearly as big as "American Indian," and the Germanic peoples are a valid ethnolinguistic group, comprised of a set of ancient, medieval, and modern day peoples each characterized by a shared usage of the Germanic languages and cultural elements unique to the Germanic-speaking peoples, such as the Norse gods replacing the Roman gods as the names of the week, except for Saturday anyways. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 00:52, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
I agree, try comparing Arapaho to Navajo. One of my all time favourite Indian myths would be that of Bakhbakwalanooksiwey. Mí má kȍhà hńg gǀȕì ō ǁȁhìn-ā ō hȁ ō gǀè gù ǀxūúnnu. (talk) 05:21, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Anything involving Coyote would be bring a smile to my face. But I'll follow your suggestion, instead.. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 15:07, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Sysop[edit]

Hello Don Juan,

Thank you for making me a Sysop.Doublethink (talk) 21:39, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

You're welcome.--Don Juan (talk) 21:41, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Blocking[edit]

You should not infinitely block or vandal bin IPs. See RationalWiki:Blocking_policy#Vandalbinning. CowHouse (talk) 09:44, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Even spammers?--Don Juan (talk) 09:46, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
"Spambots can be blocked for up to 3 months, but sysops should only block if there is repeated spamming from an IP address". You can block an IP spammer for a few days, and if they spam again block them for up to 3 months. CowHouse (talk) 09:59, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
Okay, got it. I had seen other sysops doing so and thought it was now okay. My mistake.--Don Juan (talk) 10:17, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
I just thought I'd check if I made a mistake. You blocked this IP recently but there have been no edits since May 2018. Am I missing something? CowHouse (talk) 13:43, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
As far as I`m aware you made a mistake. Somehow the IP reuploaded a spam page already deleted, so I blocked them. Maybe the logs are glitching out or something. Anyways, I see fit that I reblock the IP, pending approval of the mob of course.--Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 13:46, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Why is there nothing under deleted user contributions? CowHouse (talk) 13:56, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
I have no clue. Perhaps I`m just insane.--Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 13:57, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Seems like there was a mistake, it was actually this IP. It recreated the spam page that was created by the first IP in May. --RWRW (talk) 14:20, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Ah, thank you, I'll see to it that the IP gets blocked right away.--Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 14:21, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
@RWRW Apparently you've already blocked the turd. Good, I'd hate to be the only one doing maintenance around here (wink wink, nudge nudge).--Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 14:23, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
He would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for meddling Sysops. --RWRW (talk) 14:25, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
@RWRW Considering that he uploaded an obscure piece of spam, I`m reasonably confident it's the same guy. Anyways, sincerely, thank you for pointing out the mistake, I was starting to worry if I was going insane or not.--Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 14:29, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
I expect this IP spamming on the page of an unrelated IP trick is especially worked out to confuse us. Dysklyver 16:01, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

OOLON!!! (fiter 55)[edit]

WTF with the "Oolon" filter? You configured it to block and remove all userrights on any account creation without warning! Dysklyver 16:27, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

My mistake, my wiki-skills are rusty, I meant it to block any username containing the name "Oolon". I'll reconfigure it so it doesn't fuck up like that again.--Don Juan (talk) 16:29, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
Ah right, basically copying filter 54 is the solution. You forgot to give it anything to match against, so by default it was matching everything. Dysklyver 16:36, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
You have my thanks.--Don Juan (talk) 16:37, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
Just out of interest, why are we blocking oolon accounts? Dysklyver 16:39, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
Because a user blocked with a permaban keeps creating new sock accounts to avoid that permaban, so I figured that we should just cut this Gordian Knot, easiest solution to the problem.--Don Juan (talk) 18:22, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

New users[edit]

It's best not to welcome new users until they make themselves known by at least an initial edit or two (e.g., User:Holocaust deniers are stupid). Bongolian (talk) 04:11, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Got it.--Don Juan (talk) 11:56, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Swearing[edit]

When I use words like "frag(ger)", "slag(ging)", or "flippin" I actually am swearing. If you want I can link the books that I took them from. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 23:17, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

Flipping might be one of those words that are no longer regarded as "profanity" among the eyes of today's society, sort of like the word "crap", once regarded as an expletive, but not so much anymore. I could get away with saying it in elementary school, and that's saying something. If anything, what you mean is that you're using euphemisms for harsher swear words, but not actually using any swear words themselves, so it might still be swearing, but saying "flipping" instead of "fucking" counts as using a euphemism, instead of using a cuss word. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 23:58, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
slag is a pretty common swear word in uk. its synonymous with slut. what is the definition you using? AMassiveGay (talk) 00:42, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
CUNT. FECK. ARSE. GOIRLS. --MtDBogan 00:54, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
thats just rude AMassiveGay (talk) 01:01, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
@AMassiveGay To be honest I rarely use "slag(ger)/(ging)", partly because I don't know what they mean outside of brief usage in Shadowrun novels, sourcebooks (commentary by fictional characters in the sourcesbooks to be exact), and video games (context is not always there with swearing in Shadowrun). @Don Juan As I said before, I'm not using them as euphemisms, I'm using them as swearwords in and of themselves. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 01:40, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
thems not proper swears if they dont mean anything, or no one knows what they mean. it would be like having to explain a joke AMassiveGay (talk) 02:04, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
@AMassiveGay I wasn't aware of that, I was basing my definition of "swear words" based off of American profanity. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 08:30, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
american swears are rubbish, and they are mostly the same as ours. take cunt for instance even now i am surprised when people take umbrage at it - its still generally considered bad mind, it just does not have that specific application that riles folk. you'd get a slap from ya mother though. and when americans use english swear words - bollocks and wanker specifically. sets my teeth on edge. you just dont say them right. its just weird. any other nation, any other accent, no problem. almost adorable with french accent. american? stop it. AMassiveGay (talk) 01:03, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
A bit of a prejudice against Americans going on now? The reason I suspect that you feel that way is because Americans tend to use those swears in jest, since our cussing vocabulary, while containing a large amount of overlap with yours, doesn't contain everything that the Brits' does, and vice versa. Compare "bollocks" with "bullshit". Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 14:05, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Special:AbuseFilter/examine/log/30443

Spam or legit?

Doesn't seem to match the usual pattern. Dysklyver 00:16, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

@Dysklyver I'd recommend we be cautious about it, don't be too hasty to block him, but keep an eye on him just in case. He did mention his (supposed) real name, so one of us will have to investigate further to see if it's legit or not. The question is, which one of us will? Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 11:00, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Ninja[edit]

So what can RW assassins do as well (as the term is not on the list) over and above ninjas? Anna Livia (talk) 17:59, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

They have super secret pirate powers. Its very secret. Dysklyver 18:03, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Only a RW Templar would dare to question the almighty power of the RW Assassins. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 18:29, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
What are RW Templars when they are at home (and do they have access to the supposed lost treasures of the Templars?)?
As they do not appear on the User group rights page 'just asking.' Anna Livia (talk) 19:41, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
If you want access to such privileged information you'll have to contact the Grand Master of the RW Templars. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 19:50, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
As you were contemplating my inclusion in the RWA, I am, reasonably, curious. Anna Livia (talk) 00:04, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
You'd have to undergo the initiation process, a grueling task that may task the soul, body, and mind. Are you up to the task? Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 00:11, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Providing it does not interfere with other activities in the wikiverse and elsewhere in the user-contributory-verse, my limited interest in 'the technicalities of wikis', automatic correction of minor mistakes in other users' contributions to talk pages, Real Life, and 'being "more patient" than some fringe contributors to RW who do not like their views challenged.' Anna Livia (talk) 13:04, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
You really think that such a thing as the RW Assassins actually exists? It was a joke. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 16:23, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes for the sake of clarity, there are no pirate or assassin user-groups... yet. Dysklyver 16:47, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Be careful of what you mention. Anna Livia (talk) 18:31, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

So what does it involve - given that I am 'somewhat miffed' by the behaviour of several IPs. Anna Livia (talk) 11:47, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
Are you interested in becoming a tech? Do you have any coding experience? Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 11:49, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
No to both - my skills are elsewhere. Besides talk page activity (in some areas) is getting to the point where it is no longer appropriate to access the website on public terminals. Anna Livia (talk) 12:13, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
So you're not interested in RW anymore? Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 12:24, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
I do have my home computer - and RW has always been merely one component: so more 'less activity.' Anna Livia (talk) 13:07, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
I can actually relate to you on that. RW is only one part of my online activity as well, and historically I've never been nearly as active here as I have been over the past month or so. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 13:11, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
Why did you delete the Dove Rose Smith article? It was a reliable source. 2Cute4U (talk) 14:11, 27 December 2018 (UTC)
Fine, I'll revert that deletion, and make the mob vote for deleting it. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 14:12, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

Stoopid categories[edit]

Do we really need these stupid categories that you created (Category:Cunts and Category:Useless fucks‎)? Bongolian (talk) 05:47, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

Yes. We do. It's nearly NYE. Why don't you unclench for 5 minutes? --MtDBogan 05:48, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
Just as we don't allow vandalism in April's Fools, it's not good practice to allow "joke" categories. Deleting them. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 07:41, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

Against Fascism[edit]

Hi @Don Juan, I was wondering if you could think about paroling @Against Fascism. He might be a troll but it also seems like he could do some good. I would also like to ask him about his bar story. Sorry for bothering you. Tabula Rasa (talk) 07:15, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

@Tabula Rasa Binning someone isn't the same as blocking them, it merely restricts their editing rate to one edit every thirty minutes or so. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 08:34, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
@Don Juan, Ok thanks and sorry for bothering you. Tabula Rasa (talk) 18:25, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

News commentary[edit]

I deleted that because WIGO World is for news stories, not commentary. Nerd (talk) 18:28, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

@Nerd I left a note on your talk page, I'd prefer to discuss it there. Having two discussions on it only serves to add needless confusion. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 18:30, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

DUDE[edit]

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Somebody just wants to let you know you did something silly.

Sucker! You gave sysop to an active troll! Dysklyver 22:55, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

No need to rub it in. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 23:01, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
I assume you did it before I renamed them to Trolly McTrollface, so no biggy. :/ Dysklyver 23:03, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Yup. No offense taken, I was semi-joking with the above remark anyways. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 23:04, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

saloon bar[edit]

what the fuck did you do? AMassiveGay (talk) 14:21, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

I archived most of it, the page was getting too cluttered. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 14:24, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
most of which was current. put it back. do properly or not at all AMassiveGay (talk) 14:26, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
Most of which was days old and hadn't been updated in days. So therefore NOT current. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 14:28, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
there was plenty of stuff there updated just yesterday, and even today. AMassiveGay (talk) 14:47, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
Oh well. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 14:54, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Mops aren't for padlocking articles you like the current state of[edit]

If you're looking at the options and you see "excessive vandalism", maybe see if the fossil record has more than 10 edits in the last month, first. Zionism is contentious and prone to provoking intense arguments, but the actual article was pretty much left alone. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 22:38, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
