Thanks for reading, Jason!

Thanks for pointing out our mistake. I have taken care of it.--BethTalk2ME 12:49, 19 September 2007 (EDT)

Wikipedia articles

If you please, before you make copies of these articles and move them here, get permission from Aschlafly first, and demonstrate that it was you who did in fact write them. Karajou 17:03, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

I have actually changed my mind about that, I want everything here to be original. I only "copied" once in the past, but I changed it a little bit. Just out of curiosity though, how would I demonstrate that I was the author? Sounds tricky unless they have a wikipedia account I suppose. Thanks for the tip though.

All you have to be is honest about what you did over there. So, write the best articles you can over here, and have fun doing it! Karajou 17:18, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

Please stop creating "date" articles

Unlike Wikipedia, we don't want to have lots of useless articles about the days of the year. SSchultz 23:16, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

I don't think they are useless. Have they been done before and deleted? I think it is very encyclopedic. Almost every day is some holiday somewhere in the world, and sometimes events are significant that they happened on the same day. Has the Conservapedia community come to a consensus about this? Jason 23:21, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
Unfortunately, I can't find the page where it was discussed at the moment, but Andy had asked that these types of articles not be created. SSchultz 23:24, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
I don't know if they've come to a consensus, but they don't have to. The Manual of Style clearly indicates to not wikilink dates. We don't link to them, because we don't want them. Andy has said this more explicitely elswhere as well. HelpJazz 23:26, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
No fun, guys! :( Okay then, we'll have it your way. What about years though? I think that is important. They are very significant to get a wide scope of history. I would like to do some year articles if its allright. I'll do a great job on them! promise. Jason 23:29, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
No years either (years are part of a date). Maybe you can go petition Andy, but he's said at least once before that it just invites the creation of too many stub pages. If we have one year (or date) we need to have *all* years (or dates) and frankly nothing exciting happened on August 2nd, 412BC ;-) HelpJazz 23:32, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
Yeah, I would like to petition him. Who is this Andy guy? Is he the head Sysop? What is his user page? Jason 23:35, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
User:Aschlafly is the site creator. HelpJazz 23:37, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
  • I was appointed the "decider" in this. My decision is Title Case for article names, and absolutely no wiki linking of dates. Days, Months or Years. If you don't like that, you can contact me. Please leave Mr. Schlafly alone! :p --şŷŝôρ-₮K/Ṣρёаќǃ 00:28, 11 October 2007 (EDT)
