Look at my talk page. --Tim TalkFormerly CPAdmin1 17:25, 2 January 2009 (EST)

Web question

Hey, so you're the webmaster? I was wondering, you know how lots of websites have that little mini-logo up at the beginning of the URL at the top of the page? I was wondering if maybe you knew how to make one. I think it would look good if CP could have a logo in the URL, instead of the search engine logo which appears now. What do you think? User:AddisonDM 7 January 2009

Addison, meet Phil. Phil, meet Addison. Introductions done! --₮K/Administrator/Talk 18:20, 7 January 2009 (EST)

Haha :) User:AddisonDM 7 January 2009

Great favicon!

That is a terrific "mini-logo" (favicon) you made for the tabs - I love it! Taj 23:03, 7 January 2009 (EST)

Super-fantastic, looks 3D--Jpatt 23:39, 7 January 2009 (EST)

Cool! Thanks for doing that. Another step towards looking professional :) AddisonDM 8 January 2009

Thanks! CPWebmaster 22:15, 8 January 2009 (EST)

New addition to Spam filter?

I think a new string has been added to the spam filter in the last week--it's four colons : in a row. That's going to cause all sorts of problems with the indenting on talk pages. Would you be able to check and remove it if it's there? -Foxtrot 12:16, 10 January 2009 (EST)

Useful Tools

Seem to be missing from check user. Can we get them back? --₮K/Admin/Talk 07:30, 14 January 2009 (EST)

Move page error

Hi. Go to Category:Move requests. In that category is a request for Riemann Integral. When I move the page, I get an error, having to do with the Object page. Try a move yourself and maybe you can find out what this error is. I've seen it countless other times doing page moves too. AddisonDM 19:39, 14 January 2009 (EST)


Hello! Just so you know, TK and I figured out that you can put the accent in Joaquin's name - it's just every page before the crash that had an accent in its title was somehow corrupted. See Niccolò_Machiavelli)--IDuan 23:32, 29 January 2009 (EST)

Ah, I see you discovered that on your own - sorry for the post, then.--IDuan 23:33, 29 January 2009 (EST)

At Salvador Dali there are many images that have a problem related to the ´. Could you fix it or do I have to upload again all the images? The big problem is that this bug is in all images with an special thing like "Ñs" or "´".

--User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 15:04, 2 February 2009 (EST)

OK, thank you. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 14:17, 3 February 2009 (EST)

Maths problem

The Maths codes are not working, and are preventing pages with them being displayed. That they weren't working was reported on Conservapedia:Desk/Miscellany, but now trying to even display that page produces a database syntax error. The same applies to my talk page. Philip J. Rayment 03:20, 3 February 2009 (EST)

I see that problem has gone, although the maths codes themselves are still not working. Philip J. Rayment 08:18, 3 February 2009 (EST)
I saw changes to CP Desk just now, clicked on it, got this message:

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

(SQL query hidden)

from within function "MathRenderer::_recall". MySQL returned error "1267: Illegal mix of collations (latin1_swedish_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_general_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation '=' (localhost)".

--₮K/Admin/Talk 17:06, 3 February 2009 (EST)

Yea, that was the error Philip just mentioned above. I was testing the math out, apparently I haven't got it working yet! CPWebmaster 17:10, 3 February 2009 (EST)
I was having the same problems, but now some of them seem to be fixed too. Thank you for all the hard work you've done. The math pages still have some issues: see Category:Mathematics for a sample of pages with names that had non-English characters that have now become garbled. Redirects from the unaccented pages are throwing database errors too: see Sierpinski triangle, which redirects to the problematic "Sierpiński triangle". I looked into other fallout with the math articles and it seems "Sierpiński's constant" (which became "Sierpi%C3%85%E2%80%9Eski%27s_constant") got deleted before the cause of the problem was ascertained. I don't remember that page, but based on the time of the deletion, I'd guess it was mistakenly deleted when the garbled characters suddenly appeared when CP came back online. It probably should be undeleted. I can only imagine what miracles you're pulling behind the scenes. Keep up the good work! You have all our support. -Foxtrot 17:12, 3 February 2009 (EST)


His page seems troubled again, and it appears there is a re-direct to a re-direct? Anyway, just another item for your list when you get caught up!  :p --₮K/Admin/Talk 03:30, 4 February 2009 (EST)

In the mid time could I get the possibility to upload new images? Joaquin --JMR10 15:17, 4 February 2009 (EST) --JMR10 20:34, 5 February 2009 (EST) --JMR10 23:02, 7 February 2009 (EST)


I am back. I just need to recover the tools of sysop. --Joaquín Martínez 09:19, 9 February 2009 (EST)

Funny characters

Hi. Just to let you know that there are still a very few pages where special characters seem to be causing problems - see Special:DoubleRedirects (in the case of Machiavelli and Balboa, I can't access the pages they are redirecting to). Not a big problem, but one that could use tidying up when you have time. Thanks--CPalmer 10:27, 10 February 2009 (EST)

Unaccessible Titles

Hey CPWebmaster, I'm really sorry to burden you with yet another issue, but I've just now discovered a problem that I think may not be fixable. The Front de libération du Québec was recently deleted by a sysop, so I assumed that there was another bad title due to the special characters. However, with every title previously, I've been able to access the "messed up" title, and then I could just point it to a sysop and the sysop could move it. With this article - I can not access it. You can verify that the page exists here,but sadly the link doesn't work - it takes you to the correctly formatted page - which was deleted (and even if the page wasn't deleted, it would be useless anyway). My only hope is that perhaps it's my computer or maybe that you know of some back alley you could possibly take (or perhaps you could at least access the content of the article). I'm sorry I can't offer you any help, but I wish you the best of luck. Once again, I apologize for being the bearer of bad news.--IDuan 21:36, 11 February 2009 (EST)

Wow that's amazing - great job!--IDuan 22:50, 11 February 2009 (EST)

Bible references

Sorry to bother you again, but it seems there's a problem with the automatic Bible reference tagger. The links (like this: Numbers 17:13) only work if you have certain skins chosen (see User talk:Ed Poor#New page). This is a really useful feature so it would be good to get it working for all users in my opinion. Thanks--CPalmer 12:29, 19 February 2009 (EST)

Page Count

Hey, Conservative ended up resetting the page count on evolution from 500,000 to 0 by deleting the page. I tried restoring the page, but only the history was restored and the page count is still the new one. Do you know how to get the old page count back?? AddisonDM 20:42, 3 March 2009 (EST)

  • Addison, the page count you see is internal, means absolutely nothing, and does not effect our rankings, or anything else, as the search engine bots don't read the internal counters. If a Senior Administrator like Conservative does that, I would advise you to check with Mr. Schlafly before initiating any actions on your own. --₮K/Admin/Talk 20:52, 3 March 2009 (EST)
Actually I talked with him telling him this and he asked if I could restore the internal page count. AddisonDM 20:54, 3 March 2009 (EST)
Well, then actually, he should have asked, but we have been through this before with him, and it could not be reset, was the answer we got then. No matter, I am sure Phillip will do what he can.  :D -- --₮K/Admin/Talk 21:19, 3 March 2009 (EST)


I noticed on another wiki that when editing an article, misspelled words were underlined by red, like in Microsoft Word. Is this part of the wiki software? If so, maybe it should be installed? I don't know if you know how, but please look into that. It would eliminate many mistakes in our articles. AddisonDM 22:09, 20 March 2009 (EDT)

suggested searches

Hey Philip, you know how on Wikipedia when you begin to search it pulls down as list, and if you mistype something it comes up on the next page with "Were you looking for...." Do you know if those are features we could turn on here, or do they have to do with which version of MediaWiki is installed? AddisonDM 14:01, 9 June 2009 (EDT)


A thought: would it be possible to make Capcha take effect when a page is blanked? Earlier today a malcontent started blanking pages en mass; I was reverting him/her, but since many of the pages contained external links I was slowed down by the Capcha system while the page-blanker remained blithely unaffected. The software must be able to spot page-blanking, because I seem to recall it gives an automatic edit summary 'removing all content from page'. Worth looking into?--CPalmer 18:27, 19 June 2009 (EDT)

Article Request

Just something that I wanted to ask...could you please take down that 'satire of atheism' picture on the Atheism article? Or unlock it so that I can take it out? It seems rude and biased, as well as being false in its statement. Or, add a 'satire of christianity' to the Christianity article. KnightOfTheNight 21:45, 11 July 2009 (EDT)KnightOfTheNight

  • You must be confused, Knight. This is a Christian wiki, a conservative and Christian encyclopedia. What atheists are displeased about, bothers us not at all, and we don't apologize for that. We don't try to be neutral at all, either, for that would mean ignoring facts and the truth. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 00:12, 12 July 2009 (EDT)

User rights

Philip- My younger brother Mark just registered for the economics course homework under the name of MarkGB, and cannot edit. I noticed that you said in an edit summary that new users were having trouble editing. Can you give him the appropriate rights please? Thanks, Duncan

Stray HTML tags

Hi. I've just noticed that when you look at an old version of a page (eg this one, the header saying that it is an old version of a page contains some stray HTML tags. Is this a problem that can be fixed?--CPalmer 11:55, 18 January 2010 (EST)

Thanksgiving, 2010

That looks much better! Don't eat too much, Phil!  :D --ṬK/Admin/Talk 18:20, 24 November 2010 (EST)

Double redirects

Hello. I was going to fix the double redirects and was able to get to two of them but the rest are locked to prevent editing. Most of them seem to be talk pages for various "essays". I wouldn't have bothered you but the person who did the locking has his talk page locked and I cannot figure out how to bring up this subject with the individual. Thank you and God bless.

Problem with the database?

Hi, you seem to be the tech guy of this wiki - I got your name via Help:Contents's "handy list" of bureaucrats. My question: is there a problem with the database? At least two of my comments vanished without leaving any trace. The damage isn't great: I was able to reconstruct the longer comment from a draft which was still stored in my cache. But perhaps other users were afflicted by such glitches, too. I would really appreciate if you could have a look into it! Thanks, AugustO 09:54, 3 May 2011 (EDT)

Bible Translation Project

I am going to start a Bible Translation project for the Philippines. I would like to talk with some folks to learn some insights, especially "what we would do differently had we only known from the beginning...".

My conservative views are very similar to many that I see. I would appreciate any advice, tips, ect.

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 19:21, 5 October 2011 (EDT)

notification of time of Internal Server Error

At CDT 5:19-5:21 I kept encountering Internal Server Error with instruction to notify webmaster of time it happened and what I had done when it occurred. I had clicked a link from a Conservapedia article to external Bible text, and then could not get back to the Conservapedia article, not even from my Favorites list link. When I did get back to the main article, clicking on the particular part of the table of contents in the article to get to where I had been only produced another Internal Server Error. Clicking "back" arrow at top of page only produced either the same notification or the main article and the notification when I clicked the table of contents.
