Why? There is nothing wrong with those links. On the contrary, It can give us more traffic. Do you have a proof that Google would not like it? --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 22:05, 16 March 2008 (EDT)

I talked with Andy about it awhile back. Also, I've discussed search engines with User:Conservative. Google does not like it when links are placed at random without a clear correlation. DanH 22:06, 16 March 2008 (EDT)
Ok. Let them be until Andy say the last word. They are not without correlation. They are actors all of them. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 22:10, 16 March 2008 (EDT)
He is already in the Actors category, which links to all other actors anyway. DanH 22:11, 16 March 2008 (EDT)
For us it is better to have more traffic and that is a better way than in the Category place. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 22:13, 16 March 2008 (EDT)

Possible Bans?

What is the highest possible block time? (besides infinite). Also, can you make a ban of User:Liberal9188 and User:HHSFake.. so I'm not tempted to use either of those accounts again.

I have one final request.. could you ban me for 3 years, 1 month, and 4 days? Or 5 years if you don't want to type all that in. The reason can be: "request by user". Thanks. -^_^- Fuzzy 09:44, 20 March 2008 (EDT)
I once copped a fourteen year stretch. I think the sysop must have been bored. HarryWharton 10:43, 20 March 2008 (EDT)

For banning, can you do something like "3 days, 1 day, 4 days, etc." o_0 Fuzzy|AFD 21:37, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

So, what's the policy

The reason JM unfairly banned me was because I was removing the nonsensical see-also links on various pages. My reason for doing so was because it isn't encyclopedic. I began doing it en masse when I saw what you wrote to JM that it wasn't our policy. His response: It'll boost our google rankings. (VERY encyclopedic).

So, what's the policy now? I don't want another ban. ד.לערנער 22:43, 17 March 2008 (EDT)

Tread lightly when working with Sysops showing them the respect they are due. If you are going to be making changes to their work, then talk with them first and make sure there is a common understanding. This should be followed for all people, but of course Sysops can also ban you for it. Unless there is a specific written policy saying all 'See Also' sections should be removed, then it is unwise to attempt to remove them en masse on your own. Talk page discussions between sysops, especially before a specific resolution has been reached, do not count. Learn together 15:59, 20 March 2008 (EDT)

Dear Dan, I am currently trying to get night edit rights so that I can better contribute to Conservapedia. As a sysop who has had experience working with me, I would like to ask for your support.

Name-calling

Could there be any more damning evidence of the bankruptcy of liberal thought then the incessant campaign of name-calling by liberals against conservatives? If they had a rebuttal to conservative thought, they could simply present it in the Marketplace of ideas. Calling people liars isn't going to help their cause much. --Ed Poor Talk 13:14, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

Dan, you just protected a bunch of almost identical templates (user, Protestant, Baptist etc.) which could be better written as a single template with a parameter.

Really good block there Dan, hearty congratulations. Never mind he's been working his fingers to the bone making improvements to CP, he's a sock so he's got to go.... Clever guy. Peason 14:38, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

How would you know? You don't have access to checkuser. DanH 14:52, 4 April 2008 (EDT)
So what's the scoop? I'm interested as well. He added a lot of thick, meaty content with nary a peep. Are these the people you don't want here? Donaldson
It's a user making a whole lot of socks, some of which engaged in poor conduct besides Gomez, and it's all been done by one individual. If this user wants to come back, then it's only going to be one name, one account, no proxies. Karajou 16:20, 4 April 2008 (EDT)
I see. Are the posts which are considered "poor conduct" by the other user(s) being made at the same time as ChrisGomez? What I'm saying is all it takes is a spiteful lib co-worker, using the same proxy from work, to walk behind is desk and see that he's editing CP. Any liberal would be sneaky enough to create his own username and password and start trolling.

Recent comment:

Maybe they're so conservative that they're liberal. Like they go around the whole political spectrum? Or maybe, just maybe, this "encyclopedia" is just a load of BS written "conservatives" who are upset that their beliefs all too often don't match up with reality so they need their own little sand box where they can censor any dissenters and tell themselves they're trustworthy and honest all they want without the threat of having their (crazy) beliefs mocked or criticized by anyone.

A major online conservative christian newspaper.....

A major online conservative christian newspaper is very interested in regards to Conservapedia's atheism article and the reporter said she would very likely do a story on it. She said her readers are VERY interested in the subject of atheism and the story that we are promoting our article and that some major Christian internet ministries have started to feature our article is a good story. I am making the conservapedia atheism article the article of the month which I think fits in nicely with the Expelled controversy. I have sent Andy an email on this matter and I am awaiting an answer. Conservative 14:46, 1 May 2008 (EDT)

Why did you delete then restore an article that kills its view count and decreases its ranking-- 50 star flag.png Deborah (contributions) (talk) 14:54, 18 May 2008 (EDT)

Hi

I noticed you deleted an article on Liberal Depravity just now for being parody. Although most likely written by a scheming editor, is it not a bit of a double standard to allow articles that scream parody to remain here on this site? I'm referring to Liberal tricks etc. and the homosexual articles. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by JEdgar (talk)

I don't think Conservative has parody in mind. DanH 17:32, 23 May 2008 (EDT)
You are seperating the intent from the crime. If someone murders someone, its largely irrelevant if they intended them to die or not. By pointing the gun, even if they didn't mean to kill, they are asking for trouble. The same goes for these ludicrous articles. They make Conservapedia look like a parody of conservatism though are written by genuine people of a particularly reality-divorced position. You are a reasonable man, yet you never stand up to this nonsense. Why? JEdgar 19:08, 23 May 2008 (EDT)

This person appears to be a trouble-maker, Dan. Check his edits and especially his userpage message. I think that's a good indicator of the type of behavior we should expect from him. Jinxmchue 21:51, 23 May 2008 (EDT)

About the "Screamo" page

You commented on my talk page about "Screamo" and asked about sources, proof, ect.

Here goes:

1. You beleive that bands such as "The Used", "Rise Against", "Atreyu", and others are "Screamo" bands. This is not the case

Here is a sample of real "Screamo" http://youtube.com/watch?v=pmkHtTWcCPM

Here is a sample of something that is NOT screamo http://youtube.com/watch?v=vDz2mWMMRN0

Clearly, there is a difference in the two songs. The "Screamo" sample includes music that is nearly completely composed of screaming vocals, while the "Non-Screamo" sample is composed mostly of singing vocals with little screaming sections.

To be classified as "Screamo", a song must have mostly screaming vocals in it, and not for only 10-20 seconds. It has to be nearly the WHOLE song. Here is a link to a site which contains user votes on what is "real screamo" and what is not

http://www.last.fm/tag/real%20screamo http://www.absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=159848

2. Next up, you questioned why i listed bands that did not popularize the genre. Well, here is what is going down: The Used, Atreyu, and Rise Against are not screamo, thus they did not popularize the genre

However, I listed bands such as CTTS, Envy, and Funeral Dinner because they are the bands that have started the genre, as well as popularizing it. You can read it on other sites (including wikipedia)

Alright, theres my discussion for the day. I suggest you keep the "screamo" page as it is, because non of the bands that were originally listed were considered as "screamo" bands

Thank you for noticing, and reverting, the ridiculous comment someone left on my talk page. Taj 18:20, 2 June 2008 (EDT)

Why did you revert my edits?

Hello Dan,

Why did you revert my edits to the Apartheid page? It added a wealth of new information to the article.

Regards.

Because they reflected a pro-apartheid viewpoint and we do not support that here. DanH 21:16, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

Sorry? Pro-Apartheid? I simply said that PW Botha put the idea of the creation of a Colored and Indian Houses of Parliament to the White electorate, of whom 66% voted to include. Can you tell me how that is pro-Apartheid? It's fact, not opinion.

Secondly Dr.Verwoerd did change the name from Apartheid to seperate developement, check on the United Nations website if you don't believe me.

The previous person to edit it put "unfortunately" the West backed them. How is it unfortunate? Conservative regimes in the West backed the Christian, capitalist regime of the National Party against the Marxist, atheist ANC and PAC.

And thirdly, I came here to be with fellow Conservatives. Forbidding pro-Apartheid material is a very liberal course of action, in my belief.

Regards.

Rule 5 of the Conservapedia Commandments

"Do not post personal opinion on an encyclopedia entry. Opinions can be posted on Talk:pages or on debate or discussion pages. Advertisements are prohibited."

The person who editted Apartheid before me inserted their opinion by putting "unfortunately" Western governments backed Apartheid. Shouldn't their edits be reverted?

Alfred123

AWB

What??? Are you out to get me here or something. You are watching my every edit and then reverting them on a whim.

The AWB is conservative, it wished to conserve the regime that was in place. It was not racist, it was racialist yes, it acknowledged the existance of different races.

Why would a "racist" organisation enter in an alliance with the Black Inkatha Freedom Party?

Alfred

What "different races"? There's one race: the human race. Philip J. Rayment 08:23, 5 June 2008 (EDT)

Indeed, but that was not the view of the AWB.

Alfred

Black people could vote under Apartheid

DanH,

Black people could vote under Apartheid, in their Bantustans, but not in White South Africa. So it is unfair to say that Black people were only given the vote in 1994. In fact in the Bophuthatswana Bantustan it appeared most of its Black residents did not want to vote, as there was only a 0.6% turnout.

Conservative Style Page

Please see the "Colleges" Section of Mr. Schalfly's talk page. In that section, he gave express permission for a "conservative style" page. --AndrasK 21:34, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

But this was an express parody. DanH 21:35, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

How so? It was merely trying to emulate the format and style of the Liberal Style page. It is not parody, it is creating a more complete encyclopedia. --AndrasK 21:36, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

It was parody, and even if it was sincerely meant - which I doubt - that still wouldn't make it acceptable. Faulty appeal to "balance" or "a more complete encyclopedia" is part of Liberal Style. We are not here to make a "complete" encyclopedia. We are here to make a truthful and accurate encyclopedia, and attacking the project won't get you anywhere. Marty 21:42, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

But what defined it as a parody? I know parody as defined as "a literary or musical work in which the style of an author or work is closely imitated for comic effect or in ridicule." The Conservative Style page, however, is imitated not in ridicule but only in the name of being "truthful" and "accurate." The style of the liberal style page was imitated to maintain consistency. --AndrasK 21:45, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

There's really nothing more I can say. I'm not a big proponent of demonization of ideologies... DanH 21:46, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

So you are saying that because you are a counter-example to one of the points made, that the page merits deletion? --AndrasK 21:48, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

No, that's not what I meant. I was referring to my personal opinion of the liberal style page. DanH 21:50, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

I apologize, but I am not quite sure I understand what you are trying to communicate. I believe that what you are saying is that you do not agree with all the points given in the liberal style page. Is that correct? If not, some elucidation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you --AndrasK 21:53, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

Yes, it is correct. DanH 21:54, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

If that is your basis for the deletion of the conservative style page, then why is the liberal style page also not marked and processed for deletion? --AndrasK 21:55, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

It was not intended by its authors as a parody - the new page was intended to parodize a page with sincerity in intentions. DanH 22:01, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

So you are saying that you presume to know the intentions of its authors? It interests me as to how you could know this, as the authors never expressly dictated their motivations. Unless if I am missing something, I cannot see how you could definitively know the intentions of the authors. --AndrasK 22:05, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

No, though I can reasonably infer. Even if that wasn't the case, I can't delete something written by the site owner. DanH 22:07, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

But you can delete something that was given express permission by the owner of the site? Be careful with assumptions, they can lead to a faulty conclusion. --AndrasK 22:09, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

It was re-created I see, so I'll let others sort it out for now. DanH 22:12, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

Glad we could reach a compromise. Pleasure talking to you good sir. --AndrasK 22:14, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

Obama and Islam

DanH, please don't leave over it. Just make your disapproval known. It's the best you can do, and we really need you here. HenryS 20:52, 19 June 2008 (EDT)

Burning a sock

Hi Dan, this is your old pal FIippin. A long time ago, when you banned me, I was a little upset, but I appreciated the fact that you did so in accordance with your principles. As FIippin, I actually only committed a small act of vandalism for which Ed banned me for a week. I came back and lasted until the purge about a year ago. At that time, one of the pages I was working on was about a poet. I forget who, probably my favorite, Richard Hugo. After the block you left a brief note over at RW saying you were sorry to block me, and that the pages I'd been making were good. I really respected that, and I know that kind of treatment of others kept you from being included in the usual taunts and scorn brought to bear on folks like Karajou.

I am writing to say I am sorry to see you go. I respect you as a person, and an editor. Leaving CP in this manner is a brave move on your part, and I sincerely wish you the best. Maybe you can put in a good word for me with Andy so he doesn't call the CIA or FBI.

That said, in solidarity I will be discontinuing the use of any and all of my socks on CP. Currently that's about 4 users, so not a huge break for karajou, or Andy, but heartfelt, and sincere.

To the greater CP community, I think this should signal why this project will not work. In the end, it will never be completely safe from liberalism as its owner hopes. There is simply no way to create a static social system. People change, interpretations of history change, and perspectives broaden experience. This last point is something I think Dan just learned.

Respectfully, FIippin

I agree, FIippin. DanH, you were one of the most fair-minded and principled sysops here -- you will be sorely missed here. ClassicBlue 11:47, 20 June 2008 (EDT)

Flippin, I might add, is a liar. He had no respect for this site from the start; he had no respect for its users. And to that end he boasted of his own cyber-terrorism against this site to a newspaper reporter. So, the question is should we continue to be fair-minded to people such as him? The answer is a clear no. The bottom line is that Flippin was never man enough to be an honest, responsible human being. Karajou 12:23, 20 June 2008 (EDT)

Obama issue

While I can see your point about Obama and Christianity, I don't think Americans should always believe politicians when they falsely claim to be Christians. 1 John 5:1 does not say otherwise.

Obama himself has claimed to be a Christian in ways that have been politically beneficial to him. As with any claims by a politician, voters have a right and a duty to inquire whether the politician's claims are in fact true. We would do no less when allowing someone to care for our children. Why who would we do any less in voting for a president?

This issue, frankly, has as much to do with the candidate's honesty and credibility as it has to do with his actual religious belief.

More information has recently been posted on this issue in the Barack Obama entry.--Aschlafly 08:34, 22 June 2008 (EDT)

August

It's August now, you've been gone since June and we still miss you. :( Taj 15:37, 7 August 2008 (EDT)

Seconded. Foxtrot 21:30, 7 August 2008 (EDT)

November

I'm recreating cannibalism as a redirect to Anthropophagy. If there's any problem with this, please let me know. (From what I can see you were the one who deleted the previous page, so I though I should let you know and see if there were any objections.) ArnoldFriend 12:49, 4 November 2008 (EST)

DanH has been gone since June, so you won't get an answer from him. Ed Poor deleted Cannibalism once, but a new article was created and has been there for some time, so I don't see why there needs to be a separate Anthropophagy article. So instead of Cannibalism becoming a redirect, the content of Anthropophagy should be moved to Cannibalism and Anthropophagy made the redirect. Although I think that the content of Anthropophagy needs a bit of work done to it. Philip J. Rayment 21:07, 4 November 2008 (EST)
