James Madison

What information is contradictory to my point? He said in that quote that he favoured seperation of church and state. RDundas 22:04, 2 May 2009 (EDT)

I was referring to this source:


...which illustrates that the source in which James Madison supposedly expresses his belief that religion is the basis and foundation of government is a quote mine and Madison's words were completely taken out of context. RDundas 22:48, 2 May 2009 (EDT)

Thank you for the compliment. --Jpatt 19:39, 10 May 2009 (EDT)

Conservapedia is needed in other Languages also!

As an user bored and fatigued with extreme leftism from wikipedia, and because in other languages wikipedia is even many more leftist and atheist; I need to contact with people as you in order to work in a spanish version from conservapedia. And I need to know if I can post articles on conflicts between catholics and evangelicals in Mexico. God Bless you!. Eliécer Guillén.

Featured Articles...

All of the above seem fine to me, my friend. Hope this finds you and your family well and prepared for Summer! --₮K/Admin/Talk 20:15, 22 May 2009 (EDT)

Fine. I will see if any of them has already been selected. We are just fine of health, thank you so much. --Joaquín Martínez 21:37, 22 May 2009 (EDT)
My thought was although some were once considered unsuitable, many have undergone many changes, and we might want to re-consider. Of course I bow to your and Dean's judgment on this! --₮K/Admin/Talk 22:44, 22 May 2009 (EDT)
OK. --Joaquín Martínez 10:43, 23 May 2009 (EDT)

Thanks for the message, Joaquin! At the moment, I have nothing to recommend, though I've personally been working for a while on expading Twentieth Century period (music). There are still a few more sections and references needed before I can consider it finished and ready for suggestion, but you might want to take a look yourself and feel free to add some media. My next section will be about Latin American composers, including a special mention of Carlos Chavez; I notice that you've been responsible for CP's article on him, so please add whatever you like.
All the best to you and yours, JDWpianist 13:13, 24 May 2009 (EDT)

Boy martyr

  • What really happened may never be known. But the previously unthinkable theory, backed by considerable evidence, is that a Palestinian shot the boy in cold blood to create a needed martyr to advance the Palestinian cause. [1]

Based on the above, and my recollection of other reports, it's possible that the Arabs who attacked the Israelis also created a fake "martyr". --Ed Poor Talk 14:38, 27 May 2009 (EDT)

It isn't exactly an unknown ploy, historically speaking, is it? The Nazi's and Communists frequently did and do employ such tactics, when it serves their political interests. To a committed Muslim, in point of fact, it would be an honor to be murdered in furtherance of their cause, same as the Homocide Bombers believe. Alinski merely used history to make his "Rules for Radicals" which are merely the tried-and-true tactics of terrorists down through the ages. --₮K/Admin/Talk 15:15, 27 May 2009 (EDT)

Fair use of Floating Icebergs

Could you please explain to me the situation regarding the fair use of that photograph? I admit I don't speak Spanish, but I was under the impression that El Pais charged for the right to reproduce photos.JohnathanS 20:07, 11 June 2009 (EDT)

Image_upload_requests page question

What does the strikethough of the text requesting an image mean? I requested some images and I noticed you edited them to place a strikethough, what does that mean? -- BMcP 10:13, 24 June 2009 (EDT)

That those images are already uploaded. --Joaquín Martínez 10:16, 24 June 2009 (EDT)
Oh! Thanks, I will try and look for them then. -- BMcP 10:20, 24 June 2009 (EDT)

Well, thanks for your work too! AddisonDM 19:16, 23 July 2009 (EDT)

  • Joaquín my friend, that user was indeed a lying liar, the one who purported to be in the military. He has been blocked several times, and like all deceitful liberals, keeps coming back. Your instincts were correct. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 20:07, 23 July 2009 (EDT)

Great addition to time

Joaquin, I love that Dali artwork and it is a superb addition to time! Thank you for sharing that insight!--Andy Schlafly 23:25, 1 September 2009 (EDT)

My pleasure, as always! --Joaquín Martínez 23:28, 1 September 2009 (EDT)

Empty set

I see you've added the bit about Christian mathematicians back to the page about the empty set. I'm a Christian math grad student, and I've never heard of anything like this. This was the only edit this user ever made to the CP and it reeks of parody. But I'm willing to believe I'm wrong and just haven't encountered this -- do you have more information? Thanks for your work on the site -- I'm a big fan! --MarkGall 19:49, 2 September 2009 (EDT)

Sorry, I did think deleting that information was a mistake. Fixing it right now. --Joaquín Martínez 20:07, 2 September 2009 (EDT)

Edit summaries

Hi, Joaquín. I was just thinking about edit summaries when I noticed you left one out on your main page edit. So I added "your" edit summary; I don't mean to take credit for your addition, though.

By the way, some friends of mine are holding a prayer service (in the rain) at Ground Zero this morning. --Ed Poor Talk 10:10, 11 September 2009 (EDT)

Fine. --Joaquín Martínez 14:33, 11 September 2009 (EDT)

art article request


I do like your art articles - especially when you feature Christian art. Could you please create these two articles: Christian paintings and Christian art. I think these two articles would be very beautiful articles since there is a lot of great Christian masterpieces. conservative 06:17, 21 September 2009 (EDT)

Sure, it is a great idea! --Joaquín Martínez 07:26, 21 September 2009 (EDT)
Thanks, I am especially looking forward to the Christian paintings. Perhaps, this will help: http://www.allposters.com/-st/Christian-Masterpiece-Posters_c5922_.htm conservative 04:05, 22 September 2009 (EDT)
Done, thank you for the advise. --Joaquín Martínez 17:03, 26 September 2009 (EDT)
Joaquin, thanks for creating the article. I tweaked the title of the article plus a few headings so people could find your article easier via the search engines. People do more searches on Christian paintings rather than Christian painting. conservative 19:20, 26 September 2009 (EDT)
It is fine but I got 51,400,000 for Christian painting and 25,300,000 de Christian paintings in Google at this moment. --Joaquín Martínez 19:38, 26 September 2009 (EDT)

Expert help needed for images

Joaquin, you're the master at the images. I need to reduce the images in Economics Lecture Four to half size, but when I use smaller sizes (e.g., 200px) the images will not display. Do you know how this can be done? It would be immensely helpful if those images could be reduced, because they are interfering with the printing of the lecture. Thanks so much, and thanks for teaching us with all of your contributions.--Andy Schlafly 10:29, 21 September 2009 (EDT)

Joaquin, thanks so much. Actually, I did more investigation and testing and just discovered that it was a long link that was causing the printing problem, rather than the images. That was bizarre. But your tip about preferring jpg to gif is very useful also. Thanks!--Andy Schlafly 16:45, 21 September 2009 (EDT)

Thank you

I appreciate your understanding. Godspeed to you as well. RoyP 12:27, 22 September 2009 (EDT)

Can you fix the current featured article?

The text for it include some Wiki code. Jinx McHue 21:49, 19 October 2009 (EDT)

Thanks for the informative news posting

Thanks, as always, Joaquin, for your informative news posting!--Andy Schlafly 18:12, 24 October 2009 (EDT)

Thank you Andy for your friendship. --Joaquín Martínez 22:05, 24 October 2009 (EDT)

Nice image of the Bible!

Thanks for the nice image of a Bible! You are the master of good images, Joaquin!--Andy Schlafly 14:37, 25 October 2009 (EDT)

Thank you so much! --Joaquín Martínez 20:40, 25 October 2009 (EDT)


Hello Joaquin;

You seem to be the artistic man on Conservapedia - I love the frontpage series - could you help me find/upload some good Stanley Spencer images? I just visited Sandham Memorial Chapel, which has some amazing and inspiring work by the man, but I can't find any good, free-use pictures of his frescoes. I was going to start an article on him and his work, and your help would be invaluable. Thankyou. AungSein 19:52, 31 October 2009 (EDT)

OK, good idea! --Joaquín Martínez 08:00, 1 November 2009 (EST)
Thankyou very much. AungSein 08:37, 1 November 2009 (EST)
Again, thanks for all the images. I borrowed some of your article layouts, but as I'm not very experienced at this whole wiki thing, it came out a bit weird. It's nice to have someone who knows about art - I've been browsing through some of your masterpiece archives, and especially like the Posada. There's an exhibition on Mexican engraving on right now at the British library, I might try to bring some post-cards back. AungSein 09:58, 1 November 2009 (EST)
Great! --Joaquín Martínez 10:19, 1 November 2009 (EST)


Joaquin, the masterpiece is superb as always, but I think we can now move to the next masterpiece. This image might be a bit depressing to keep up all week. Thanks. Also, I'm going to suggest to User:Conservative that he trim the front page images near the bottom. Thanks much.--Andy Schlafly 16:57, 2 November 2009 (EST)

Done. --Joaquín Martínez 17:29, 2 November 2009 (EST)
Thanks! The new one is much more pleasant to look at, although does not make as lasting impression as the other one.  :-) The prior one was very effective and a compelling work of art. Your presentation of the masterpieces has been superb and much appreciated by many people.--Andy Schlafly 17:41, 2 November 2009 (EST)
Thanks Andy! --Joaquín Martínez 17:42, 2 November 2009 (EST)

If you please, I made a minor adjustment to your Masterpiece and World Treasure blocks on the main page; this was done to tighten up the whole and allow space for editorial cartoons as they come up. Hopefully, it works for you, but if not, feel free to revert it. Karajou 14:58, 4 November 2009 (EST)

Take note. --Joaquín Martínez 22:35, 4 November 2009 (EST)


Joaquin, "Allahu" has to mean "Allah", not God. The Muslim chant, which is what this is from, is to Allah, not God.--Andy Schlafly 19:49, 6 November 2009 (EST)

Andy, the word "Allahu" means in Arab "God". It comes from: Al-lâh. "Al" means "the" and "ilah" means "god". --Joaquín Martínez 19:58, 6 November 2009 (EST)
Joaquin, I have an open mind about this, but Muslims chant to "Allahu" and they're not chanting to "God", but to "Allah". I suspect that the sources that translate "Allahu" as God would also translate "Allah" as God, but theologically that is not precise. Allah is now a common English word all its own and should be used here, rather than replaced by God.--Andy Schlafly 20:01, 6 November 2009 (EST)
I wonder if Arabic-speaking Christians/Jews refer to God as Allah/Allahu? -- Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 20:04, 6 November 2009 (EST)
Good question, but this individual was Muslim, so I doubt it matters. He was referring to Allah. By the way, Allah has been an English word since ... 1584.--Andy Schlafly 20:05, 6 November 2009 (EST)
Please try: [2] --Joaquín Martínez 21:03, 6 November 2009 (EST)
Good point, Joaquin, and that seems to support your position. But on closer examination the dictionary is simply explaining what the English word "Allah" is: a synonym for God (which is an oversimplification). The dictionary is not translating "Allahu" as "Allah". Later on that page is the fuller definition, under "Word Origin & History": Allah 1702, Muslim name of the Supreme Being, from Arabic Allahu.--Andy Schlafly 21:33, 6 November 2009 (EST)
Joaquin is correct, Andy. The Arabic word "Allah" is formed from the word "al" and "ilah" literally meaning "The Lord." Arabic speaking Christians and Jews also refer to God as Allah. Moreover, Muslims worship the God of Abraham, just as Christians and Jews do. Indeed, even Jesus called God "Allah." When he cried out to God, he said "Eloi Eloi lama sabachthani" or "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Eloi in Aramaic is the same word as Allah in Arabic.
You seem to be under the impression that Muslims worship some deity whose name is Allah, which would be as wrong as me saying that Christians worship a deity named God. ArabicLesson 20:25, 7 November 2009 (EST)
Christians do worship God, and Muslims submit to Allah. Allah has been an English word and the accepted translation of "Allahu" since 1584.--Andy Schlafly 23:45, 7 November 2009 (EST)
Do you mean that the Muslim Allah is not the same deity as our Christian God? Cambrian 23:52, 7 November 2009 (EST)
According to dictionary.com, the word originated in 1702, not 1584. Furthermore, it is a synonym for the word 'God'. It is simply the Arabic word for God, used by Christians, Jews and Muslims speaking Arabic. Since the words God and Allah are synonyms, it doesn't particularly matter which is used, however I would argue in favour of using the word 'God' rather than 'Allah' when translating from Arabic into English. EJHall 23:56, 7 November 2009 (EST)
Note: Indication of synonym status. EJHall 00:00, 8 November 2009 (EST)

The Compact Oxford Dictionary defines "Allah" as "the name of God among Muslims (and Arab Christians)." The Cambridge Dictionary of American English says: "the Islamic name for God." The 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica: "the Arabic name used by Moslems of all nationalities for the one true God." The Catholic Encyclopedia: "The name of God in Arabic." MichaelHWC 23:57, 7 November 2009 (EST)

Dictionary.com is wrong in the date of origin for Allah in English.
In response to Cambrian, the words are different, and have different meanings, differences that precise translation preserves.--Andy Schlafly 23:59, 7 November 2009 (EST)
Apologies if you've done this before, but would you mind linking to a reference that supports your 1584 claim? EJHall 00:01, 8 November 2009 (EST)
Thank you for your response. We learned in school that Muslims worship the same God as us Catholics do. Are you saying they don't? I would like to know more about this so I can speak with a Syriac priest at my school who grew up in Lebanon. Cambrian 00:12, 8 November 2009 (EST)
In reply to EJHall, the reputable Merriam-Webster dictionary and its date of origin of words are available online. In response to Cambrian, please do explain to your teacher that in English Allah is a different word, with a different meaning, compared with God. If they had identical meanings then they would not be two different words.
Thank you. I'll take Merriam-Webster over dictionary.com any day. However, I don't think it's wise of you to deny the existence of synonyms. EJHall 17:00, 8 November 2009 (EST)
The Oxford English Dictionary, which I place above Merriam-Webster in terms of authority, lists 1702 (which has been referred to been borrowed from by other dictionaries, apparently) and it would be interesting to know MW's reasons for the earlier date. The definition in the OED is simply: "The name of the Deity among Muslims." The etymology from the OED: "[a. Arab. all{amac}h the (true) God, contr. of al-il{amac}h, i.e. al the + il{amac}h god = Aram. {ebreve}l{amac}h, Heb. {ebreve}l{omac}ah.]" which shows that Arabic, Aramaic, and Hebrew are all much more closely related to each other than any to "God," which is of course of Germanic origin. But isn't all of this moot, as the gunman was speaking Arabic at the time? He wasn't using "Allah" within an English sentence. Arabic speakers of all Abrahamic religions use the same term for "God." So, it is perfectly reasonable for newspapers and other sources to translate the word as "God." CPlantin 15:25, 9 November 2009 (CST)
Andy, you don't speak Arabic, so for you to claim authority on transliteration of Arabic is comical. Arabic uses modifiers to alter a root word to indicate relationships between words in a sentence. What you would transliterate as "Allahu Akhbar" is the word Allah modified by the "u" suffix to indicate the verb "to be" and then akhbar meaning "great" hence "God is great." Allahu is not a different word from Allah, as you suggest. It is the same word with a verb modifier. ArabicLesson 00:33, 8 November 2009 (EST)
Your argument that "Allahu" is "Allah" plus a modifier provides even further support for translating the term as "Allah" in English. Does your nit-picky point amuse yourself also? "Allah" remains the correct translation under your own argument.--Andy Schlafly 11:01, 8 November 2009 (EST)
ArabicLesson is right. Allah is Arabic for God. If you open an Arabic-language bible, the first thing you'll read in Genesis 1:1 is 'Fee al-badi' khalaqa Allahu as-Samaawaat wa al-Ard.' AdeleM 15:03, 8 November 2009 (EST)
This isn't about being nit picky, it's about being correct. The word "Allahu" would appropriately translate as "God is." You seem to want to insist that "Allah" is not translated to English as God, which is puzzling, since Muslims worship the same God as Christians and Jews, that being the God of Abraham. Just because "Allah" shows up in the dictionary does not make it an English word. "Perestroika", "detente", and "hara-kiri" show up in the dictionary, but they are not English words either. ArabicLesson 13:27, 8 November 2009 (EST)
From this debate something valuable could be saved for: Allah. --Joaquín Martínez 15:07, 8 November 2009 (EST)

Medicine in Egypt

Could we rename this article Medicine in Ancient Egypt seeing as how all the content is regarding ancient Egypt? -- Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 21:15, 6 November 2009 (EST)

Featured article

Joaquin, the new featured article has factual and complimentary information but seems inappropriate for the idea-based approach for this site. Put another way, ideas matter here, not ethnicity. Or stated a third way, the entry is not encyclopedic or sufficiently educational. So while I rarely intervene in another Administrators' action, I think we need to withdraw this type of article (and other ethnic-based entries) for further consideration.--Andy Schlafly 21:42, 24 January 2010 (EST)

Fine. --Joaquín Martínez 07:59, 25 January 2010 (EST)
Joaquin, thanks so much for your cooperation and very high level of contributions. I've learned enormously from you. Please feel free to replace "Scott Brown" on the Featured Article with something new that is more scholarly. I simply placed his entry there temporarily because he was in the news.--Andy Schlafly 11:49, 26 January 2010 (EST)

In the Diego Rivera article, is the center the best place to have that image? Also, I removed the italics from the page because I couldn't find a reason for italicizing those parts of the page; those revisions were reverted when you moved the image back, as well.

Golden Age of Mexican Cinema

Hi Joaquin! I was curious if you were a fan of Mexican film from the '30s to '50s. The Vienna Film Museum is putting on a film festival this month, and if you have any recommendations, I'd like to see one or two of the best. You can see the list here.

quick note re: left side of main page

I know I have utilized the left side of the main page to promote various matters relating to atheism, evolutionism, and creation science, but my main page involvement is going to go down after today. I am quite pleased with web traffic the articles in these subjects enjoy and now I think future growth to these group of articles will largely happen through the overall growth of the Conservapedia domain traffic as a whole. From this point on, although I may tweak the popular articles at Conservapedia section of the main page and mention any big happenings in the atheism/Christianity/evolutionism/creation arena, I think my left main page involvement is going dramatically down. Please don't feel as though you are stepping on my toes should you wish to make dramatic changes to the left side of the main page. The only thing I ask is try not to be too politically correct on the left side of the main page. :). conservative 14:34, 25 August 2010 (EDT)

Welcome back, Joaquin! We've missed you.--Andy Schlafly 22:22, 6 September 2010 (EDT)
Thank you Andy; only a little busy. --Joaquín Martínez 08:39, 7 September 2010 (EDT)

Joaquin, it's great to learn from your edits again. I really enjoyed your edit to the Bible verse by inserting "Conservative Bible Project."  :-)

By the way, I'm thinking that conservative Marco Rubio may be our next president. He speaks Spanish very fluently, and was far more popular than the frontrunner Mitt Romney at a joint appearance recently.--Andy Schlafly 16:22, 2 October 2010 (EDT)

Thank you Andy. You know how much I love working here in CP. --Joaquín Martínez 14:00, 3 October 2010 (EDT)

Great quote!

Thanks for posting that great quote, Joaquin! I had never seen that insight before.--Andy Schlafly 22:32, 8 November 2010 (EST)

gallery of photos

Since "files" is kind more a computer storage unit (and not everyone is into computers) rather than a description of what is being visually presented, I changed the name to "Gallery of photos". I think that is better, but I am certainly open to feedback. I do appreciate that you like the photos I uploaded. :) conservative 21:23, 3 December 2010 (EST)

Excellent idea! --Joaquín Martínez 16:21, 4 December 2010 (EST)

More photos you can use

Here is a bunch of nice photos you can use as long as you indicate where you got them when you upload them to Conservapedia. The photos were taken by a world traveler and some of the photos of some famous places are quite nice and you have to scroll down the web pages to see them: http://www.flickr.com/photos/evolution_atheism/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/evolution_atheism/page2/ 22:09, 3 December 2010 (EST)

Well done!

Terrific update to the Main page, Joaquin! I'll trim it a bit so your edit appears higher on the page.--Andy Schlafly 23:30, 11 December 2010 (EST)

Request to upload a picture

Hello Joaquín! I was wondering if you wouldn't mind uploading this picture to Conservapedia for an article on former Supreme Court Associate Justice Frank Murphy.--IDuan 17:17, 22 February 2011 (EST)

One has the correct name and the other is the internal links solution for Spam filter. --Joaquín Martínez 08:19, 17 March 2011 (EDT)


Hello Joaquín Martínez, I would appreciate if you could upload this image and title it Evolutionary Creation and describe it as follows: "Theistic evolution (also called evolutionary creation) proposes that God is the creator of the material universe and by consequence, all life within. In theistic evolution, the "evolution" can refer to a Complete Formative Evolution of all physical and biological features during the entire formative history of nature — with astronomical evolution (to form galaxies and solar systems) and geological evolution (to form the earth's geology) plus chemical evolution (to form the first life) and biological evolution (for the development of life) — or it can refer to only part of the process, with different claims about each of the four aspects of evolution." Thanks, AnupamTalk 14:27, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

It is here since December 2007 as: File:Intelligentdesign.jpg. --Joaquín Martínez 19:42, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

Dear Mr. Martínez, could you please supplant the image here with the image shown above? I would appreciate it. Thanks, AnupamTalk 00:44, 11 April 2011 (EDT)

Photo upload

Hi, I would like to upload a photo of myself, I don't have the rights, can you do it for me? Thanks. --SarahWollstone 20:19, 8 April 2011 (EDT)


Dear Joaquín Martínez, could you please upload this image and add it to this section of the article. Also, the replacement here did not work correctly. In order for it to work correctly, "Image:Atom.jpg" must be replaced with "File:Evolutionary Creation.jpg" I hope this helps :) Thanks for your efforts! With regards, AnupamTalk 15:52, 12 April 2011 (EDT)

I will also appreciate if you can please upload this image to this section of the article as well. For the description of this image, please write "The ozone molecule is represented by two resonance structures. In reality the two terminal oxygen atoms are equivalent and the hybrid structure is drawn on the right with a charge of -1/2 on both oxygen atoms and partial double bonds with a full and dashed line and bond order 1.5." Thanks, AnupamTalk 11:55, 13 April 2011 (EDT)
So sorry. File isn't uploader; could not do it. --Joaquín Martínez 14:52, 13 April 2011 (EDT)
Dear Joaquín Martínez, File:QuantumHarmonicOscillatorAnimation.gif is not loading correctly here. Could you please fix that problem? Thanks in advance! Also, in regards to the file I just requested you to upload (File:Delocalization_ozone.svg), is it not uploading? If that's the case, I would appreciate if you could please upload this image instead. I look forward to hearing your reply. Thanks, AnupamTalk 18:52, 13 April 2011 (EDT)
Sorry, .gif and .png don't work fine here in CP. Please choose some other material. --Joaquín Martínez 19:30, 13 April 2011 (EDT)
Joaquín Martínez, besides the animated image, is it possible for you to resave those images on your computer, in the appropriate format, and upload them so that they might work? Thanks in advance. I look forward to hearing from you soon. With regards, AnupamTalk 18:11, 14 April 2011 (EDT)

These images are all in .jpg format so hopefully they should work! Thanks in advance for all of your help. With regards, AnupamTalk 14:54, 16 April 2011 (EDT)

re: image descriptions

I just uploaded those pictures for SharonW as a favor. I am glad you liked them. I don't have much interest in the subject so I regret to say that I will not be adding descriptions to those images, but if others wish to do this I certainly would not object. 14:02, 17 July 2011 (EDT)

Debt Limit Graphic

I just posted this on the talk page for the article, but I figured I would bring it up here as you posted it. I appreciate the idea of the graphic and feel as though it could really illustrate the severity of our debt, however on the current graphic I cannot view the legend so I do not know what the different colors mean. I think that either a different graphic could be used or perhaps just a description in the notes for the graphic? Thank you. --MRellek 21:26, 19 July 2011 (EDT)

Please let me know if you want to serve on a blocking policy refinement panel

Please let me know if you want to serve on a blocking policy refinement panel. I invited someone to edit Conservapedia and they were blocked and they should not have been. I got the block overturned. So I think there is room for improvement in Conservapedia's blocking policy. You can sign up HERE. I invited active Syops/Admins plus people with blocking rights who might wish to be Sysops. If I left anyone out, please let them know about the panel. The people with blocking rights can sign up HERE. The panel will probably convene when Iduan is back from his summer vacation or fairly soon afterwards. Conservative 13:47, 13 August 2011 (EDT)

Request for Admin assistance

To all senior admins and sysops. I am being repeatedly abused by user:conservative who, among other things, accuses me continuously of being an atheist simply because I point out some of the holes in his articles. See here for the latest accusation. I have asked him numerous times to desist with his sneering name calling as I find it offensive to have my faith questioned and nothing is ever done. He state’s I am atheist because I don’t agree with some of his ridiculous contentions. In actual fact it isn’t even that I disagree with him it is that I point out his shoddy research, poor scholarship and his berating, insulting and sarcastic behaviour towards others. I am of the opinion now that he is purposely calling me names because he knows I don’t like it which is unchristian, impolite and, above all, insulting. Is anyone going to teach this man some manners? Has Conservapedia become a place where Conservative is allowed to behave this way without any warning or comeuppance but all other editors and warned and blocked for minor infractions. He is in continual violation of the commandments yet NOTHING is done whereas people like myself are always watching out to avoid being banned. Well, fine, ban me if you like. I probably will be after this posting and no doubt Conservative will cackle with glee at “winning” again. But laugh Conservative, you win nothing. I post this is full knowledge that I might be blocked banned and insulted by you in my absence and I have always remained polite and civil plus I can hold my head up high. Hopefully one of you will take a stand and insist on standards of civility. But I don’t hold out much hope. Thanks, many of you were kind, decent people whom I enjoyed working with and I pray for you. MaxFletcher 19:22, 5 October 2011 (EDT)

You left a message on my talk page: "It seems that you were blocked in February... please be careful."

I wasn't aware that I had been blocked, and I certainly haven't seen any messages about such an action.

Can you provide more details please? RolandPlankton 09:34, 22 March 2012 (EDT)

See: 14:23, 4 February 2012, Taj deleted "User:RolandPlankton" ‎ (Vandalism / parody). --Joaquín Martínez 09:51, 22 March 2012 (EDT)
Perhaps another user had put vandalism or parody on Mr Plankton's user page. That would be a reason for the deletion, but of course it wouldn't be Mr P's fault.--CPalmer 09:55, 22 March 2012 (EDT)
I believe that 4 February 2012 was when I first registered on Conservapedia. My user name was chosen in accordance with CP Guideline: "As a sign of good faith and accountability it is recommended that editors select a user name based on a permutation of their real name.". Certainly my son was instantly able to recognise my user name as referring to me. RolandPlankton 10:04, 22 March 2012 (EDT)

Help please, re references

I've had a little previous correspondence with you re a strange block, which you helped resolve to everyone's satisfaction.

I'm having problems with strange formatting of some references, I can't see what's wrong, and I'm wondering if you can advise me:

I've recently been expanding the article Compiler and adding relevant accessible references. But references 10 and 12 appear in the list of references with incorrect formatting. Can you perhaps have a look and tell me what I've done wrong in the actual reference specification earlier in the article? RolandPlankton 07:59, 5 April 2012 (EDT)
Joaquin, thanks for your help. Following your example I've managed to correctly locate and sort out the remaining reference. RolandPlankton 14:31, 5 April 2012 (EDT)

Page renaming?

In Conservapedia:Editing article and talk pages (Manual of Style), Section 1.4 states: "Article names should be written in lower case, except for proper nouns."

I've come across an article name which breaks this rule, and I'm wondering if you could change this name for me:

rename Context-Free Grammar as "Context-free grammar"

I've also come across some inconsistencies which can be resolved by renaming. We have C (programming language), which is fine. Could you change some names:

rename BASIC programming language as BASIC (programming language)
rename Pascal programming language as Pascal (programming language)
rename D programming language as D (programming language)

Could you also consider:

rename Interpreter (computer science) as Interpreter (computing), since Interpreters were around long before Computer Science was thought of.

Thanking you for your attention. RolandPlankton 18:09, 13 April 2012 (EDT)

Done. --Joaquín Martínez 20:15, 13 April 2012 (EDT)
Thanks for your prompt response. I'm afraid you made one minor error, renaming Interpreter (computer science) as Interpreter (computer) rather than as Interpreter (computing). No great rush - it will be a month or more before I get round to actually editing these articles, since I'm currently working on formal grammars. RolandPlankton 11:09, 14 April 2012 (EDT)
