Name of the Award


You and I think alike. I put my suggestion on the main page, though. It'd have a cool nickname, too: the Ronny. Jinxmchue 16:14, 12 May 2008 (EDT)
That's clever: the "Ronny"!--Aschlafly 17:08, 12 May 2008 (EDT)

Perhaps we should coin a new name. Shocking as this may be, most of students have no recollection of Reagan. Most were born after he was president. Also, other awards are named after Reagan and even liberals invoke his memory now!--Aschlafly 22:29, 12 May 2008 (EDT)

Makers of wiki

You are of course aware that the makers of the wiki software is the Wikimedia Foundation, the charity that run by Jim Wales, which owns Wikipedia, that has such an awful Liberal bias that you had to create this? DanielB 22:20, 12 May 2008 (EDT)

No, the makers of the wiki software were individuals who volunteered their time, not an entity that has been taken over by a liberal mob.--Aschlafly 22:26, 12 May 2008 (EDT)
Check out there website down the bottom in the little bar it say "A Wikimedia Foundation Project". The wikimedia foundation owns this Wikipedia and about 8 other projects. DanielB 23:10, 12 May 2008 (EDT)
That's silly, and says nothing about who developed the wiki software. If anything, that denies credit where credit is due.--Aschlafly 23:13, 12 May 2008 (EDT)
Actually the irony only just occured to me. MediaWiki is funded by the Wikimedia Foundation. The Wikimedia Foundation gets most of it contributions through Wikipedia. Your website relise on MediaWiki, ergo your website relise on the donations brought in through Wikipedia. DanielB 23:14, 12 May 2008 (EDT)

It is written the same way other open source projects are like LaTeX. Who ever happens to stop by and write some code. DanielB 23:17, 12 May 2008 (EDT)

In other words, you don't give credit where credit is due either, like Wikipedia itself.--Aschlafly 23:24, 12 May 2008 (EDT)
Oh no! Nobody thanks you. Is that why you started Conservapedia nobody thanked you for your help at Wikipedia?
All open source projects are like this lots of people do lots of work and nobody gets any recongition unless you creck open the code and have a look (LaTeX style files usually have the authors name commented out somewhere at the top of the source code). People have reasons other than recongnition when they participate in open source projects. LaTeX for example, you wanted to do something, you couldn't find a style file to do so you write one yourself and then upload it to the CTAN website so other people arn't met with the same problem. Nobody gets recognised but everyone gets something out of it. DanielB 01:15, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

I could be wrong, but it looks like this guy is the one who should be thanked, not Jimbo Wales. Took me about a minute to find that out. Jinxmchue 01:00, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

He invented the first wiki, not the software that powers Conservapedia. The software that powers Conservapedia is the same as the one that powers Wikipedia, which is the one that produced by people who submit program code to MediaWiki project in order to create Wikipedia. DanielB 01:15, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
And Henry Ford just invented the modern assembly line, not the robots that work on them today. No need to recognize him for anything. Jinxmchue 13:34, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
Right. And Thomas Edison merely invented the first light bulb, not the ones we use today. No one should bother recognizing Edison either!--Aschlafly 15:00, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
William Hammer did alot of the ground work research for the light bulb. He worked in Edison's lab and after the lab as a whole developed the light globe Edison took it and patented it. It looks like you enjoy rewarding the person who took the credit rather than the people who did the work, you should give your "award" to Jim Wales than. DanielB 18:43, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
So now you're agreeing with us. How convenient. How typical! Your arguments are a joke. It doesn't matter what Jimbo Wales actually did - you just want him to get an award from Conservapedia. Please go troll elsewhere. (And from your edit history, looks like you're here pretty much just to talktalktalk anyway.) Jinxmchue 11:52, 14 May 2008 (EDT)
I didn't say I wanted to give Jim Wales an award, I said that you are ignoring the fact that the software you use was developed with support (bandwidth of the website, ect.) from money raised through Wikipedia. Andy must have relised this when he was on their website downloading the files.
Your websites existence is entirly dependent on Wikipedia and any "award" for wikis will have to go in part to the Wikimedia Foundation for providing the platform for developing wikis. DanielB 19:08, 14 May 2008 (EDT)
Jimxmchue, don't bother responding. DanielB did not take your hint and he violated the 90/10 rule, and has been appropriately blocked for it.--Aschlafly 19:21, 14 May 2008 (EDT)
I was done anyway. :) Jinxmchue 00:08, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

Phyllis Schlafly

Isn't she associated with Conservapedia? FernoKlumpAll the funny lines are banned 23:09, 17 May 2008 (EDT)

No. Are you a conspiracy theorist, Ferno? Perhaps you believe in Hillary's claim of a vast right-wing conspiracy?--Aschlafly 23:17, 17 May 2008 (EDT)
What? What does that have to do with anything? I know she is your mother, I just didn't know if she was technically associated with Conservapedia. Geeze . . . FernoKlumpAll the funny lines are banned 23:22, 17 May 2008 (EDT)
Ferno, your first statement above is inconsistent with your second. When called on your contradiction, you just play dumb? Ferno, do you ever admit you're wrong?--Aschlafly 23:34, 17 May 2008 (EDT)
Maybe I am dumb then, because I don't have a clue as to what I did that was wrong or contradictory. If you are saying that Phyllis is not associated with Conservapedia, then thank you for answering my question. As for your remarks, if you look closely at my first sentence you'll notice that it was a question, not a statement, and was intended to be read as such. FernoKlumpAll the funny lines are banned 23:45, 17 May 2008 (EDT)
Ferno, I asked you a simple question. Are you going to answer it?--Aschlafly 23:50, 17 May 2008 (EDT)
As I explained above, that question has nothing to do with this topic because I asked a simple question. And yes, I do admit I am wrong if I'm actually wrong and if I'm not being randomly insulted by some guy on the internet who doesn't understand that my question was simply a question. FernoKlumpAll the funny lines are banned 23:55, 17 May 2008 (EDT)

Well, gosh darn, it confuses me too Ferno. AdenJ 00:25, 18 May 2008 (EDT)

Ferno, I suggest your answers should be: no, no, no, yes. StatsMsn 01:27, 18 May 2008 (EDT)
Ferno, your answer that you admit that you are wrong "if" you're actually wrong is not much of an answer. You may never think you're wrong. You've been blocked six times here by numerous Sysops; your signature line pushes a false statement; and your question above that started this discussion implies a falsehood. Yet I haven't seen you admit you're wrong about anything yet. I'll ask the simple question one last time, do you ever admit you're wrong?
Regardless, Ferno, remove the falsehood from your signature line or your account will be blocked for the 7th time.--Aschlafly 09:08, 18 May 2008 (EDT)

If Mrs. Schlafly is not associated with Conservapedia then why did the April 25th CP News headline refer to her as "Conservapedian Phylis Schlafly"? --DinsdaleP 11:10, 18 May 2008 (EDT)
