Operation: Iraqi freedom

Hi. If you have a moment, can you please take a look at some recent edits to Operation Iraqi Freedom? The article now discusses how alleged American "war crimes remain unacknowledged and unpunished" and a passage about "the evil unleashed on the people of Iraq" with a citation to "Alternet," a hard-left web site. Thanks! EddyJ 13:28, 4 September 2013 (EDT)

Then sorry.--JoeyJ 10:09, 7 January 2014 (EST)
You're OK. I think I forgot two of them. Karajou 21:11, 7 January 2014 (EST)

Here is an actual list of wanted Flags and/or Coat of Arms: Comoros, Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Monaco, San Marino, Liechtenstein and Tuvalu.--JoeyJ 15:19, 18 September 2014 (EDT)

So... Will you upload them?--JoeyJ 15:15, 15 November 2014 (EST)

Yep...today. Karajou 16:17, 15 November 2014 (EST)

Obamacare

I made a new section at Talk:Obamacare#"Obamacare fines to be seized from bank accounts?" article is false. GregG 22:51, 8 October 2013 (EDT)

DanAp

I've just reverted this idiocy of his as well. TBH he seems to be a bit of a parodist imo. Davidspencer 10:32, 20 October 2013 (EDT)

Thanks for reverting it. He's going to explain his edits if he wants to continue here. Karajou 10:45, 20 October 2013 (EDT)

Can you please uploud these pictures for me? [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] I already asked Ed Poor but he didnt answer.--JoeyJ 13:06, 29 October 2013 (EDT)

Use the InstantCommons. Dhdidnac 10:25, 8 January 2014 (EST)

Kathleen Sebellius deletion

I saw you removed the section about Kathleen Sebelius‎'s Nazi symbols on her clothes from her article. This was featured on the main page, should we not add it to her article? I have readded it but I will remove it if you can give a good reason why this information shouldn't be featured in the article.

Thanks, --PhilE 17:45, 10 November 2013 (EST)

First, you're just a troll. Period.
Second, the pin was identified as being "similar" to a Nazi symbol, but that doesn't make Sibelious a Nazi, does it?
Third, it's her actions that identify her as to who and what she is, and if she can deny a twelve year-old girl a liver transplant with the haughty phrase "some people live, and some people die", that would make her of the same ideology as a Nazi, wouldn't it? What she did confirms the death panel accusation that is part of Obamacare; it confirms an ideological link between her and some tenants of Nazism...and based on your own silly little postings past and present, "PhilE", it means you're just like her, aren't you? Just a typical racist, bigoted liberal. Karajou 17:55, 10 November 2013 (EST)

Happy Veterans' Day!

Happy Veterans' Day, Karajou! DMorris 22:14, 11 November 2013 (EST)

speedy

Please look at the Category:Speedy deletion candidates and delete some articles.--JoeyJ 07:56, 15 November 2013 (EST)

Please delete the article International Democratic Union.--JoeyJ 08:30, 17 November 2013 (EST)

USS Liberty

Please take a look at USS Liberty images. --Joaquín Martínez 13:19, 24 November 2013 (EST)

Hello!

Hi, I'm a new user here. Since I don't want to go by my real name, is it okay if I keep the name Atum? I use it and variations of it on many other sites. If it's not good, please tell me. Thank you! Atum 23:02, 14 December 2013 (EST)

Picture needs fixing

Picture needs fixing: http://conservapedia.com/Rufous-throated_dipper Visible in Chrome/Opera browsers. Not visible in Firefox. Conservative 00:27, 15 December 2013 (EST)

Picture

Hey Karajou - I was going through the president articles we have - and I was wondering if maybe you could find and upload a good picture for Ronald Reagan. I think the one we have at the top is fine for in-article, but if you look at any of the presidents after him or before, we use these very official photographs/portraits (George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama) - so I can't help but feel that Reagan's looks a little goofy.--IDuan 22:14, 20 December 2013 (EST)

Awesome - great finds.--IDuan 23:59, 20 December 2013 (EST)
I agree, nice picture finds of US presidents for their articles. --JohnJustice 11:24, 21 December 2013 (EST)

Qing dynasty

CMOS says to lower case "dynasty" (§8.71). "Qing dynasty" is actually given in the book as an example. CMOS isn't online, but Grammar Exchange has a discussion. So I was wondering if you could move Qing Dynasty to Qing dynasty. PeterKa 00:25, 8 January 2014 (EST)

Hey, thanks. Could you move Japanese Dance to Japanese dance? I don't know what the logic for capitalizing "dance" might be. PeterKa 14:50, 8 January 2014 (EST)
Thanks, again. PeterKa 11:08, 10 January 2014 (EST)

User templates

I was stalking people to figure out what to put on my user page and noticed the Navy template. Thanks for your service. I may steal "This user knows the Declaration of Independence was written and signed by right-wing extremests" eventually that's okay. I love it! JohnBD 00:12, 10 January 2014 (EST)

Thank you. You can access the complete index from Conservapedia:Userboxes. Karajou 06:55, 10 January 2014 (EST)

Thanks!

Hey Karajou! Long time no... type. Thanks for undeleting my pages. HelpJazz 10:01, 10 January 2014 (EST)

You're welcome...and welcome back! Karajou 10:59, 10 January 2014 (EST)

2 requests

I have two more requests, if you don't mind. Can you move dark ages to Dark Ages? When it refers to the period of European history, it should be capitalized, per Merriam Webster. Also, something needs to be done about {{bibleverse}}. The University of Sydney site isn't working any more. Wikipedia uses Bible Gateway, so perhaps we can switch to that site. In any case, it seems pointless to protect the template when it is not working. PeterKa 11:07, 10 January 2014 (EST)

I'll look into the Bibleverse template; perhaps it's something that should also be addressed to ASchlafly. As to the Dark Ages, it's corrected in a second... Karajou
Thanks. Could you also move Viet Cong to Vietcong, per Merriam-Webster? PeterKa 10:31, 11 January 2014 (EST)

Homo

Could you move Genus Homo to Homo? I don't see anyone else calling it "genus Homo." Homo is currently a redirect to Genus Homo. Both Britannica or Merriam-Webster give this classification as simply Homo. PeterKa 02:20, 15 January 2014 (EST)

Ireland

Could you move Republic of Ireland to Ireland, and Ireland to Ireland (island)? I give my reasons here. The short version is that if you look up "Ireland" in Britannica and other reference works, you get an article that focuses on the modern state. PeterKa 04:20, 22 January 2014 (EST)

OK, but here's the thing. There has to be two separate articles on the governments of Ireland: the one for the republic, the other for Northern Ireland. The one you propose should be about the island as a whole, describing geography, people, etc. Karajou 09:37, 22 January 2014 (EST)
I see you've already moved it. But if someone objects that "Ireland" should be the island, I am fine with Ireland (state). My point is that the title "Republic of Ireland" is misleading. This is neither the common name nor the official name. PeterKa 11:00, 22 January 2014 (EST)
I was more concerned with the two particular governments on the island. But please do what you think is best. Karajou 11:22, 22 January 2014 (EST)

Chinese dynasties

I was going through the Chinese dynasties and I noticed that User:Wuhao1911 gave them incorrect, and sometimes ridiculous, Chinese character names back in 2009. He's already been blocked, so I guess there's not much you do about it at this point. PeterKa 04:33, 2 February 2014 (EST)

Please make any corrections as you see fit. Karajou 16:51, 2 February 2014 (EST)
  • I created People's Republic of China, which includes the material I trimmed earlier from History of China. The other historic eras already had their own articles, so I think it's logical. Of course PRC usually just means China. But someone who goes to the trouble of typing in all those extra letters is probably looking specifically for the PRC. PeterKa 05:21, 24 February 2014 (EST)

I have to edit via proxy.

My IP seems to be banned from even seeing the site. Any chance of fixing that? EddyJ 15:04, 1 March 2014 (EST)Coun

Requested Move: Great Library

Could you move Great Library to Library of Alexandria? I think this is what pretty much everyone calls it. See Britannica and Wikipedia. PeterKa 01:43, 16 March 2014 (EDT)


Excuse me, Sir.

What are some of the "unspoken rules" of this wiki? I just joined, and there doesn't seem to be a guide page, so I've decided to come to you, open of the site's well-loved sysops(and someone who presumably knows the ins-and-outs of conservapedia) and resident solider. Could you help me out a bit?

Sincerely, Patrick Anderson Ruargh! 21:17, 28 March 2014 (EDT)

Use this as a guide to writing articles; follow this page for overall conduct. Karajou 22:18, 28 March 2014 (EDT)
Thanks.

John Wilkes Booth

Why did you remove the category for conservatives on John Wilkes Booth?

Because he's not a conservative.

I thought he loved his country.

Booth's "country" was the Confederacy, a place run by Democrats; a place where Democrats enforced slavery, and created Jim Crow and segregation and the Ku Klux Klan after they lost the war. Booth supported slavery, and voted for those who enabled it. Karajou 22:37, 9 May 2014 (EDT)

5 maintenance tasks that need to be done - some of which could be automated

Some editors like to do wiki maintenance tasks. I started on two of these maintenance task, but I don't have the time to do it all myself.

There are 5 maintenance task that need to be done:

1. De-orphan pages which have no category tags or links to them from other pages.

2. Remove about 8% of the wiki pages which are ex-editors' user pages and user talk pages who have not edited in the last 3 years. And this task could probably be automated, but it could be done manually too.

There is a list of editors/users here: http://conservapedia.com/Special:ListUsers

If you go through the list and put delete page tags on the user pages and user talk pages of users who have been inactive for 3 years, then those pages can be deleted.

You can also find the pages that need to be deleted by looking at the pages that have these templates on them and then see if the users have been active in the last 3 years: http://www.conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Special:WhatLinksHere&target=Template%3AUseful+links and http://www.conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Special:WhatLinksHere&target=Template%3AWelcome

3. Delete the templates that are never being used.

4. Build up the 2 sentence stub articles so they have at least 500 words. Using the random page search function, I estimate the stub articles are at least 30-40% of the wiki articles.

5. Within 10 years, about 50% of links become broken links. Xenu's Link Sleuth can crawl your website and find these dead links plus make a report: http://home.snafu.de/tilman/xenulink.html

Alternatively, using this Firefox tool https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/linkchecker/ or this chrome tool https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/link-checker/aibjbgmpmnidnmagaefhmcjhadpffaoi?hl=en these dead links can be found.

I did this link maintenance already for the atheism, evolution and homosexuality articles.

I think these 5 maintenance tasks being done would enhance the user experience for the readers plus these are maintenance tasks that need to be done. Conservative 12:37, 20 June 2014 (EDT)

Automating some of these tasks

I mentioned Xenu's Link Sleuth above in order to help automate spotting the dead links. I think that deleting the the inactive editors who have not edited for 3 years could be automated as well. Maybe using something like User:EdBot. Conservative 13:36, 20 June 2014 (EDT)

Can you get in contact with Ed Poor to see if he can write some code to automate some of the maintenance tasks?

Can you get in contact with Ed Poor to see if he can write some code to automate some of the maintenance tasks? I believe he wrote the code for User:EdBot. Conservative 14:04, 20 June 2014 (EDT)

Jeffpw

Okay, thanks for getting him. I was about to contact someone. Atum 23:51, 7 July 2014 (EDT)

Unprotect request

Could you unprotect Qin Shi Huang? PeterKa 06:32, 30 July 2014 (EDT)

Move request

Could you move Three Years of Disasters back to Great Leap Forward? This move was made by a user who was blocked years ago.[9] PeterKa 23:34, 2 August 2014 (EDT)

Hi

You have reverted some edits I made. You obviously know what you're doing, but are you actually supposed to revert edits made on talk pages? By which I mean, doesn't that take away the purpose of a page used to log everyone's suggestions on the accompanying article? I'm going to revert your reverts on the talk pages on the assumption that you weren't happy with my edits and only reverted my talk page comments automatically.--Monbuoy 21:15, 17 October 2014 (EDT)

Edit access during "off hours"

Hello Karajou. I wish to be able to edit between midnight and 7 AM Pacific Standard Time since I am free during those hours. Would you please unblock my editing ability during those hours? That is when I have the most free time. I sent an e-mail to conservapedia@zoho.com, cpwebmaster@conservapedia.com but with no reply.

Thank you, God bless. Jefferson Franklin TheAmericanRedoubt 11:06, 9 November 2014 (EST)

I agree, and I'll ask. Karajou 17:02, 9 November 2014 (EST)
