Hey Bethany. I got it from Isaiah 41:10. --Be not dismayed 12:56 XXI June 2007

Hi Bethany. I think it's great that you are adding so many new articles, especially the American History related ones. Can I offer a suggestion? (well I will anyway haha) It would help readers if you started with a more powerful lead in sentence. For example, I just read your Benjamin O. Davis Jr. article, and I didn't realize he was a member of the Tuskegee Airmen till the very end, which is something that is very important about him. Something similar to this - <Person> was/is a <occupation, or whatever they are noteworthy for> who is famous for <whatever they are most well known for>. That will serve to grab the reader's attention, they will know what the article is about, and then can read further to gain more information.

Keep up the good work. --Colest 17:49, 30 May 2007 (EDT)


Hi Bethany, I see you're dealing with a Carlowcrab problem. How does he keep creating new accounts like that! Omniscience

Reply: He just keeps creating accounts like you would if you were a new user. He is VERY annoying! :P ~Beth~ 17:42, 8 June 2007 (EDT)

I guess great minds think alike Bethany. ;-) That had never happened to me before, but I'm glad you jumped in. I just added what I had in the opening paragraph. God Bless ;-) Learn together 12:20, 12 June 2007 (EDT)


I hope you don't mind if I steal some of yours. --SimonA 20:10, 13 June 2007 (EDT)

Sure go ahead!(permission granted) :P--BethanySTalk 20:27, 13 June 2007 (EDT)

Thanks. I always prefer to ask before I steal a userbox, as people may become irate. I don't want to get on the bad side of a person who normally has such a nice attitude, that would be kinda lame. --SimonA 20:54, 13 June 2007 (EDT)

Very smart! Better safe than sorry! :P--BethanySTalk 14:15, 15 June 2007 (EDT)


Thats the way you do it sister. Hit em right in the face with a ban.--Will N. 14:28, 15 June 2007 (EDT)

Ha, Ha! :P I was away for the past day and as soon as I got home I jumped right on to the computer(I missed not being on Conservapedia). --BethanySTalk 14:30, 15 June 2007 (EDT)

This place is home away from home for me. I was part of the HS class that created this. I helped with this for homework and it brings back good memories. We had debates in class, thats why we have debates here, no one else has debates on a a wiki.--Will N. 14:32, 15 June 2007 (EDT)

I know what you mean. I miss everyday away from Conservapedia.--BethanySTalk 14:34, 15 June 2007 (EDT)

Hey were you at that class? Your name sounds famaliar.--Will N. 14:37, 15 June 2007 (EDT)

No. My sister, Sharon, was in the class. I will be taking classes with Mr. Schalfly this upcoming fall. I think he is doing American Government. Will you be taking that class?--BethanySTalk 14:40, 15 June 2007 (EDT)

Nope going to Seton Hall Prep next year. I wish i could though. I remeber your sis, she was a kick butt student. Man o man the things she did at class.--Will N. 14:40, 15 June 2007 (EDT)

Yea, I know. I wish I was that smart. (someday) Seton Hall Prep! Cool! (though it may not be anything to look foward to) :P--BethanySTalk 14:49, 15 June 2007 (EDT)

Actually I can't wait. I live right down the street and drive past it everyday for like 13 years. I am also a Catholic and that makes it even better because it is a good Catholic High School.--Will N. 14:50, 15 June 2007 (EDT)
Thats great! You probably will like it a lot since your sorta familiar with it.--BethanySTalk 14:53, 15 June 2007 (EDT)
I'm pretty sure I know where the school is located.--BethanySTalk 14:55, 15 June 2007 (EDT)


Let's just wait a bit. The other one hasn't edited yet, so it could be a shared IP. But I suggest keeping an eye on both. Thanks. RobS 13:49, 16 June 2007 (EDT)

  • Bethany, we have a page, Sysop's [[1]] where it is always best to post about these things, so all of us (including Andy) will be informed and help watch, since we don't have any one Sysop in charge of "security".  ;-) --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 16:21, 16 June 2007 (EDT)

Oh yea! I always forget about that! :P--BethanyS 20:09, 19 June 2007 (EDT)


  • Let's not even go there, Beth. Did someone being "helpful" suggest that you post that? --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 15:21, 21 June 2007 (EDT)

Nope. Just thought it was getting a little long. Sorry if I offended.--BethTalk 18:32, 21 June 2007 (EDT)

  • Not at all! It's just a "running joke", Beth.  ;-) --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 19:07, 21 June 2007 (EDT)

Main page discussion edit

You made some minor change (removing spaces or something?) to the main page discussion page, but somehow managed to delete several other paragraphs[2]. It's been fixed now, but you might want to figure out how you did that so that you don't do it again.  :-) Philip J. Rayment 09:39, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

Oh my gosh! I didn't even realize I did that! Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I will try to figure out what I did. --BethTalk 09:53, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

Upload favor

Bethany, I tried contacting a few other sysops by email and didn't get a reply. Could you upload the following files from Wikimedia commons:

Some of the current images on CP are not that good. All these are public domain. If you like you can give some of them simpler names. Hope you enjoyed your party last night and happy 4th July from a red-coat! BrianCo 14:34, 4 July 2007 (EDT)

First: What a lovely white flower.

Second: "Djtla" send me an E-Mail asking for a second chance. He wrote: "I joined the site recently to share my views about conservativism..."

22:22, 5 July 2007, BethanyS (Talk | contribs | block) blocked #12727 (expires 22:22, 6 July 2007, account creation blocked) (unblock) (Autoblocked because your IP address has been recently used by "Djtla". The reason given for Djtla's block is: "'")

Could be honest, so it is up to you.

Hope the contest could begin soon, partner.

User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 23:11, 5 July 2007 (EDT)

I also received an email from Djtla asking for unblock. Your call, Beth :) File:User Fox.png Fox (talk|contribs) 07:13, 6 July 2007 (EDT)
The user Djtla seems to be inquiring of every sysop having an e-mail address. I got one, too. I watched you block quite a raft of users as soon as they had been created; Djtla was one of them, and I couldn't figure out why you blocked him. Did you see something I didn't?--TerryHTalk 07:32, 6 July 2007 (EDT)

My Mistake! He was not supposed to be blocked. He is unblocked now. Thanks for pointing that out to me! And Yes I do hope the contest will begin soon Joaquín. --BethTalk 08:37, 6 July 2007 (EDT)


I don't think I have blocking compatibility's. It would be great if someone would give me them since I run into vandals all the time. Thanks for asking though--Tash 08:47, 6 July 2007 (EDT)

Oh Yeah! I can't give privileges but you could ask Aschlafly. Why aren't you in the sysop contest anymore? --BethTalk 09:18, 6 July 2007 (EDT)

Welcome notice

Do you realise that you can put a welcome notice on a user's talk page in the form of {{welcome|sig=~~~~}} and it will include your signature and time inside the box? Philip J. Rayment 07:53, 7 July 2007 (EDT)

No, I did not know that. Thanks for showing me that I will do it in the future.--BethTalk2ME 12:41, 7 July 2007 (EDT)


Thanks for helping me fight off the trolls/vandals and for reverting their mess. --Crocoite 10:29, 9 July 2007 (EDT)

Your welcome! They were really annoying!--BethTalk2ME 10:30, 9 July 2007 (EDT)


Thanks for the page links...that's just what I needed. But would you explain to me what the "Day 1", "Day 2", etc. are? In order to "qualify" for the day do you have to do all that? Or is that just suggestions? Thanks! DeborahB. 18:50, 10 July 2007 (EDT)

No. I just like to keep a record that way. You do have to keep a record page of your edits for the contest that the judges can view. The judges also would like if you keep the page under you user page. Use the same title that I used and you should be fine.--BethTalk2ME 21:24, 10 July 2007 (EDT)

Where are you Bethy? --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 10:53, 13 July 2007 (EDT)

Sorry, I haven't been contributing much lately. I've been very busy with work, family issues and Toastmasters. I would appreciate your input on the new section at the Team 1 contest page. --Crocoite 12:30, 14 July 2007 (EDT)

New article

HEy that new article, was it typed or copy and pasted? --Will N. 10:04, 11 July 2007 (EDT)

Which article? They are all from a public domain resource which Mr. Schalfly said we could copy to Conservapedia. As Mr. Schlafly said:

Joaquin, one good type of resource that I want you to be aware of is this: United States government websites. Because we funded those websites as taxpayers, there is no copyright protection and we can almost always copy information from them without attribution or restriction. If the information is unbiased, as in scientific terms or information about countries or numerous other topics, then copying from those websites is fine. The same is not true for state websites (e.g., California or Florida), because they often do assert a copyright. Also, there may be prohibitions on copying certain US government images, such as the emblem for a division of government like the CIA.

Please ask if you have any questions. The judges should know if you prefer to ask them. Godspeed--Aschlafly 01:15, 9 July 2007 (EDT)

This should apply to you to and should be helpful.--BethTalk2ME 10:10, 11 July 2007 (EDT)

o ok then. Your good. Just checking to see if it was copyright or not. --Will N. 10:28, 11 July 2007 (EDT)

Thats great! You should always do that! You should use these sites. They have really good info.--BethTalk2ME 10:30, 11 July 2007 (EDT)

US Navy ships

Eventually, it is going to be more than mere "cut and paste" from the DANFS site. If, for example, you upload "South Carolina", you'll have it listed as South Carolina", and people looking at the catagory will see "South Carolina"...they will not see "South Carolina (BB-22)" or "South Carolina (CGN-37)" or the other three ships because they're not labled that way in the heading. So in the future, move each one into a new label, begining with "USS", and catagorize each one as needed (USS South Carolina (CGN-37) would fall under nuclear-powered cruisers).

Thanks for the block

Bethany, thanks much for that recent block of Phyllis Schlafly!--Aschlafly 20:10, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

No problem!It was obviously a fake by the edits "she" made.--BethTalk2ME 20:12, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

Why don't you just range block the proxy that the vandal is using rather than sit here and block the usernames 1 by 1? Jinkas 20:23, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

He's using more than one proxy and I don't know how to do it.--BethTalk2ME 20:26, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

Never done it before and I don't want to mess the site up so I'll just stick with what I've been doing. Thanks!--BethTalk2ME 20:33, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

Thanks much, Bethany, I think you broke the record for consecutive blocks! You can take a break now. I've blocked this nuisance completely now.--Aschlafly 20:45, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

Thanks so very much. If you could explain blocking proxys in detail, it may be a little more helpful in the future.--BethTalk2ME 20:46, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

OK! But where do you get that info? When I search it always comes up with the wrong stuff! :{ Thanks. --BethTalk2ME 16:35, 18 September 2007 (EDT)

Some of this I just know. :-) You will too soon! Your entries are well done, and they are on important and interesting topics that I like to improve them even more. See Bill of Attainder. Godspeed.--Aschlafly 17:01, 18 September 2007 (EDT)

Good job and suggestions

Good job deleting that article. When it's something that bad, you might want to clear the edit summary so the content of the article doesn't show up under recent changes. DanH 16:42, 18 September 2007 (EDT)

I see you "stole" my animated slide show I found and put it on your userpage. :) I am referrning to
Evolution - A Fairy Tale For Grownups

Anyways, I am glad you find it humorous.Conservative 16:57, 18 September 2007 (EDT)

I love it.(LOL) I've been looking for something just like it! I hope you don't mind.

I was just joking. I want the "evolution slide show" to spread across Conservapedia. Tell your friends about it. :) Conservative 17:23, 18 September 2007 (EDT)
Sometimes I think evolution is a "refuge" of atheists who have given up on establishing a relationship with God. If they have no Creator (they reason), they still have to account for their lineage and ancestry. If they are materialists, they can only think of naturalistic theories.
Too bad they are so narrow-minded that they cannot conceive of the possibility of supernatural intervention in the world. A creator certainly ought to be able to intervene in His creation. --Ed Poor Talk 17:31, 18 September 2007 (EDT)

True, Humans have to have something to worship, they were made to worship God. Evolution is just another way of substituting God and placing it in the place of worship! It's very sad. I pray for people such as that every day.--BethTalk2ME 09:53, 19 September 2007 (EDT)

though why they teach a THEORY in the schools as if it's blatant truth is beyond me KTB 17:27, 23 September 2007 (EDT)


I asked Andy to forward on an email I sent. The guy isn't what he seems. --şŷŝôρ-₮KṢρёаќǃ 19:46, 19 September 2007 (EDT)


I saw on Mr. Schlafly's talk page that you asked him about question number 4 on the homework (drafting a law)...I don't think he's on the computer right now, so I figured I'd ask you...I'd like to know the same thing (what he meant). Did he ever respond to you? Thanks! (see you tomorrow!) DeborahB.
