Is it OK[edit]

If people edit your drafts? RoninMacbeth (talk) 12:51, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

RoninMacbeth It sure is, they are only drafts because I don't consider them finished enough to have in mainspace yet. Add whatever you like. Dysklyver (talk) 13:28, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

Message from the RationalWiki Ministry of Demotion and Personal Impediment[edit]

Dear Dysklyver,

We regret to inform you that you have been demoted to the rank of sysop. You have been granted a mop and bucket for the purposes of cleaning up the mess around here.

No questions are allowed. If you have any further questions, (further questions are permissible) please refer to the enclosed pamphlet So you are now a sysop.

At your leisure, please go to the dungeon Room 202 to see the reward mops and hammers you can work towards having!

So... why are you so blocked from Wikimedia projects?[edit]

Is it just because you socked a lot? —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 01:27, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

I stood for their Arbcom election. Got blocked. Evaded with a new account. Got banned. Evaded that with a succession of accounts. Got globally locked. Dysklyver 08:31, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
I don't hang around Wikipedia, but... is "Arbcom" the arbitration committee? What does that actually do, and why were you blocked the first time? Just curious. —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 10:59, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
The Arbitration Committee is sort of a coop/mods combi. See Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee. I got blocked because well, this:
Stop icon
You have been blocked indefinitely from editing per the consensus and your own consent here.
After 6 months you can apply for the block to be lifted, please read the guide to appealing blocks, then add the following text below the block notice on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.
This was of course later replaced with a ban. Dysklyver 11:37, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
There's so much bureaucracy there I can hardly make out what the issue is... is it just that you were doing some things they didn't like? Regardless, just try not to cause trouble around here eh? —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 11:45, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
The nub of the issue is basically that some topics are sacred. (I nominated some biscuits for deletion and some administrators did not approve). It is amazing how much bureaucracy it took to get rid of me from that point onwards. Made much harder by the whole Arbcom election bureaucracy, and the ongoing attempt to out-wikilawyer a lawyer. Dysklyver 12:28, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Indent your first replies[edit]

Multiple times now, you've responded to a post without indenting. You know how to do it, so do it please :) —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 12:31, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Do not encourage vandalism[edit]

Unless it is a link to your account, you should remove the "Click here to vandalise!!!" link on your user page. CowHouse (talk) 04:22, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

Hey little buddies![edit]

@Kingdamian1 I'm still waiting for that Florida Department of Agriculture to come and get me at the Miami airport that you think I'm located at! I'm sitting here in my boiler room watching Dexter, waiting for Adam Putnam's swat team to take me down. Fucktards.... ZombiesRComing (talk) 21:19, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Yeah I gave up on that when I realized that Miami was the wrong place. Chill. Dysklyver 22:13, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Tables are bad[edit]

Not the colours so much, but if it all works properly I see no reason I couldn't push your mockup to the actual main page. Death to table-based layout! —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 05:37, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

@Kazitor It should all work, most of it is inspired by the main page at Wikipedia and various portals I did there. Dysklyver 10:09, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Nominating everyone ain't great[edit]

I know free and fair elections, but you should seriously only nominate people you would be okay with modding you. I can't take words from your mouth, or deny you the chance to pick users you personally feel are appropriate, but I caution against your choice. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 21:24, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Ha! Well you never know, the good candidates might forget to accept the nominations and let... well I did try and pick a fair representation of loons... um, better make sure the most sensible candidates are running eh. Dysklyver 02:57, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
"a fair representation of loons" I hope I'm not considered to be one of these loons :p --RWRW (talk) 03:03, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
I was on the fence until I saw your propaganda, really the main loon category includes "Fake news", the Grand RW Judge (who my have problem accepting the nomination due to being blocked) and my sockpuppet, etc. Dysklyver 03:07, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
You should also inform nominees on their talk page with {{modnotice}} CowHouse (talk) 03:04, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
ya, will do. Dysklyver 03:07, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Done. Although it might seem like a nominated everyone, I really haven't and there is still room to seek out and nominate a few more. Dysklyver

I already know...[edit]

... About my nomination. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 03:21, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

A word of Thanks[edit]

I want to thank you for nominating me for a moderator spot in the election. I don't know where you place me on the spectrum between the competent and the catastrophic, nevertheless I quite enjoyed the mention. Thanks again, Ariel31459 (talk) 02:33, 19 November 2018 (UTC)


HardWork.jpg Tireless Worker Award
For ingenuity beyond the call of duty
For overseeing the 2001 moderator elections.

Thanks, Cosmikdebris (talk) 00:33, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Seconded. And for your work overseeing the RMF board election. --RWRW (talk) 00:49, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
Hey thanks :) Also good to see the time travel going on here :D Dysklyver 10:10, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
And just for looking into the possibility of making the Hoydaze templates timezoe sensitive, I think I owe you this. And, of course, thanks for everything you're doing on that other wiki. Spud (talk) 12:25, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

My Essay[edit]

Hi there Dysklyver thanks for adding to my essay. You wrote basically exactly what I would have said.Doublethink (talk) 03:18, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Why did you revert my topic?[edit]

That was rude. (talk) 00:45, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Reversion of comment on Tech Support page[edit]

Seriously, what the hell? Was it a mistake?--Don Juan (talk) 16:03, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Oh, shit. Brain fart on my part. Just saw the edit summary. Still, I recommend keeping the [redacted] in place with auto[redacted] enabled.--Don Juan (talk) 16:06, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes no worries. The best thing would probably be to rewrite the comment minus the bit I was complaining about. Dysklyver 16:07, 4 December 2018 (UTC)


Harrassment no. Ban evasion and trolling yes. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:09, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Harassment yes, crosswiki. See wikipedia:User:JaySmith2018, wikipedia:simple:User:Vermont/Reports/JRS, wikipedia:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/JaySmith2018/Archive etc. Affected users are registered here. Dysklyver 18:21, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Activity in other wikis don't qualify. Focus the scope on this wiki. Permaban is inappropriate. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 20:35, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
this is one of their esteemed contributions to this wiki earlier. I have unblocked, but am completely convinced they will be a complete pain in the proverbials and be permabanned by someone else for something else later, as they have before. Indeed I am pretty certain the only reason they are here is as a wind-up... Dysklyver 20:57, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
I would agree to a short-term block. Three days block is fine for me, and the user can spend the rest of its numbered days in the vandal bin. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 23:20, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

About that guy...[edit]


Come to any conclusions about it yet? I don't want to be too hasty, it might be him turning over a new leaf, or a potential new editor who has nothing to do with EIK. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 11:15, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

The normal spam has a distinct pattern, and this doesn't match it and no further similar spam has appeared. I think it is just a Fun:Elvis Presley fan who could maybe be a contributor, although his stated aim "to share with others some facts/collections about Elvis that are rare and ... cool" may not be particularly missional. And the whole thing could have just been a joke, given that he didn't reappear. I think we just leave it go and worry about it if he comes back and adds Elvis facts to every single article. :D Dysklyver 13:15, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Thank you for the sysop status! --TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 22:08, 23 December 2018 (UTC)


Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!
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.

For handing Trolly McTrollface a Mop --RWRW (talk) 22:49, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Actually you can Trout me, I just realised it wasn't you. --RWRW (talk) 22:50, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
I think we should both trout the Don! Dysklyver 22:53, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
OH! So this is where you guys plotted your evil plan! You going to be robbing banks next? Who will put a stop to this madness!? WHO!? Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 00:16, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Aye, maybe this place was too public for conspiring. That isn't a bad idea, the best thing about bank robbery is you don't have to pay tax on the money you 'earn'. --RWRW (talk) 15:26, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
There's always the Cabal to do your evil plotting, of which there is none. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 16:27, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
There is no cabal. Dysklyver 17:25, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Only a member of the Cabal would say there is no Cabal. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 00:38, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

I'm not LogicNSuch[edit]

I just thought you'd enjoy having this clarified for you. Guffer (talk) 18:32, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
