Ha ha David. Great banner!--Aschlafly 00:11, 5 April 2007 (EDT)
Thanks! :) I kind of borrowed from yours a bit and then changed a lot around. I still haven't fully grasped how to use divs in Wiki; my HTML tables don't seem to work very well. --<<-David R->> 00:12, 5 April 2007 (EDT)
Honestly, I thought it was a programming error that my name was mentioned in his comment. Please forgive, I'm VERY new to the site. I haven't gotten a straight answer on this: Is any variant on the word Sex forbidden on this site?
Still, you should not have edited his comment. As for your question, I'm not exactly sure what you want to put up. I suppose a good safety measure is to not write anything you wouldn't like your little brother or sister to see. I don't know what that is for you, but you will certainly know if you cross the line. --<<-David R->> 23:53, 6 April 2007 (EDT)
personal talk pages
I don't have a problem with someone clearing their own talk page. replace it if you must, please don't block someone for doing it. --CPAdmin1 00:03, 7 April 2007 (EDT)
Talk pages can be placed in Archives, but they shouldn't be cleared. I don't know what user you really are, but last I heard, comments are not supposed to be deleted unless they're obscene. --<<-David R->> 00:05, 7 April 2007 (EDT)

Hard to read
The whit lettering on the bluish background ar hard to read, i suggest changing it to black lettering. --CPAdmin1 13:20, 16 April 2007 (EDT)

The word "parody"
Please forgive me for pointing this out... People are starting to use the word "parody" a little bit incorrectly, and it's starting to grate on me. If your comments were just typographical errors, my apologies.
A "parody" is to writing what a "caricature" is to sketching. A parody is a piece of writing which imitates its target, but exaggerates or warps it for comic effect. For example, the 1991 movie "Hot Shots!" was a parody of the movie "Top Gun."
The parody is the work, not the person who creates it.
In the context of Conservapedia, it is the remarks or articles which an insincere user writes, not the user himself. The user would properly be called a parodist, not "a parody." Similarly, one would not say "you are not that good a parody" but "you are not that good at parody." Dpbsmith 05:56, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

Tigers letter D
Now how do you go about making one of those little info boxes, like what you have for the Yankees, but inserting the Old English letter "D" in it? I would love to have one for the Detroit Tigers. Karajou 22:54, 21 April 2007 (EDT)
- Many thanks for the userbox, and to a fan of (and I admit it!) the greatest baseball team in history...but I still love my Tigers! Karajou 23:19, 21 April 2007 (EDT)

I will only say this once, and then move on, and let you decide what to do.
Lactose intolerance is an example of microevolution, which creation scientists have no problem with.  And the claims of the natural selection are supported by reference 2 of the article.  You don't have to scrub a sentence just because it has "natural" and "selection" in succession with each other.
But I will let you decide what to do. Sterile 09:03, 23 April 2007 (EDT)
Red Sox logo Image:BOS Red Sox.png
I have made a userbox thingy for Juaquin Martinez, as he is a Red Sox fan, and I did use the logo...with the required warning that it might be changed, etc. I am thinking of the possibility that such a logo can be used by a fan as mere fan support for his team, but for that we'd have to check with the owner of the logo. Do you think it's possible? If so, then we could have the real thing displayed on our pages! Karajou 19:30, 23 April 2007 (EDT)
I sent a message to the powers that be on the Tigers official website about the fan-use of their logo yesterday. I should get an answer shortly, and I'm thinking that they allow it; this reasoning is based on official fan-sites which support a positive image of the Tigers. If it's a yes, then the same rule may apply for the Yankees...so get to writing them! Karajou 10:32, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
the bad news
This came in my email from Ron Wade, an official from the internet side of the Detroit Tigers website:
- "I'm sorry, but use of our marks or logos on the internet is prohibited. Major League Baseball Advanced Media has exclusive internet rights to MLB team marks and logos. The only exceptions are news gathering and reporting sites and only if the use of the logo is in conjunction with box scores or game summaries. (ESPN, Fox Sports, etc.)"
So that means no one can use a baseball logo as a fan on a website. Both your's and mine are different enough to get away with it, but Juaquin's is not. Karajou 18:52, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
Okay, I'd better remove a couple of sports logos off of my page knowing that now. It's probably safe enough, but I'd rather err on the side of caution. DanH 18:58, 25 April 2007 (EDT)

An idea to build more internet traffic to conservapedia
Wikipedia gives the top 1,000 articles for its website as can be seen here: http://hemlock.knams.wikimedia.org/%7Eleon/stats/wikicharts/index.php?lang=en&wiki=enwiki&ns=articles&limit=1000&month=04%2F2007&mode=view
I think we might be able to drive more http://www.google.com and other traffic to Conservapedia if we make the following articles at Conservapedia better based on the first 100 or so most popular articles at Wikipedia:
- United States
- Columbine High School massacre
- World War II
- Global warming
- World War I
- Adolf Hitler
- Battle of Thermopylae
- William Shakespeare
- The Holocaust
- Abraham Lincoln
- Vietnam War
What do you think about starting a Conservapedia improvement drive for these articles? Clearly these are serious subjects that people are interested in based on Wikipedia statistics. Therefore, I believe from a strategic point of view in regards to creating internet traffic to Conservapedia it makes a lot of sense to start a improvement drive in regards to these Conservapedia articles.

Why did you delete my page?
I worked hard on that article, why did you delete it? --Protocletos 15:34, 2 May 2007 (EDT)
- What if you restored it, and I worked some more on it? Obviously I had not completed it, it is simply convenient for me to work on articles small parts at a time. --Protocletos 15:48, 2 May 2007 (EDT)
- Well, which pieces were "said pieces"? I assume you mean the examples, which are vital to the article. If they were not there it would be infintely harder and more tedious to explain what exactly a "Your mum" joke is, and the end result would be just as offensive. (And I fail to see how the jokes could be taken as offensive when they are not directed at anyone.)
- Fair enough, you're the boss, I suppose.--Protocletos 15:56, 2 May 2007 (EDT)
- Apologies, by boss, I just meant someone whose rank was superior to mine. I agree with what you say and will do my best to clean up the article if you restore it.
User page in main space category
Typically, it is considered good wiki style to not include user pages in main space categories. You have your user page in Category:Anti-secular humanist. Would you consider either removing that or moving it to a User category name space? --Mtur 17:16, 17 May 2007 (EDT)
- I am refering to User:David R - not User talk:David R. These are probably included from templates. --Mtur 16:33, 21 May 2007 (EDT)
Perhaps you could help me out a bit
I was writing up a draft dodging article, andd linked out to your Alvin York article. I have written that York changed his mind about filing for CO, your article basically says he was sent despite it. I just do not know the truth, and may have been influenced by Hollywood in my version, so if you are certain or have a good souce, I will be glad to conform my article and resolve the discrepancy. If you get a moment, please get back to me on this. Thanks very much.

Theory and practice
Hi, David. I liked what you said  about theory and practice. I read a couple of university-level textbooks on Communism, and I daresay you are "dead on" about the consistency of theory and practice.
The inconsistency, of course, is between the political promises made to the "working class" before each revolution. Andrew Wilson wrote Communism: Promise and Practice about that.
But the idea of lying to people to get their support is by no means inconsistent with Communist theory, which adopts an ends justify the means philosophy. --Ed Poor Talk 23:09, 4 January 2008 (EST)

- Well - luckily his socks are becoming pretty obvious (see the user I just blocked)--IDuan 00:05, 1 February 2008 (EST)

- He's an obvious parodist - he said on the mastectomy page that the cancer was a result of sin - I'm not letting that guy stay unblocked for any amount of time. Oh and david - can you delete User_talk:NOTASOCK--IDuan 00:10, 1 February 2008 (EST)
- Yeah. Must be really bored to add the same thing every couple of weeks. He obviously knows it won't stay if it gets reverted every time. HelpJazz 00:14, 1 February 2008 (EST)
