"Decreasingly new"

That made me laugh. I'm going to have to steal it now. Jinx McHue 11:51, 5 May 2009 (EDT)

Thanks Jinx - steal away! It's funny, but I've been editing here for months and somehow I do still feel like the new guy.--CPalmer 11:59, 5 May 2009 (EDT)


This wiki makes me laugh. Much like Fox News, it claims to be unbiased but instead portrays only one side of the situation. Can you possibly say the Barack Obama article is unbiased? Ahahahah. This wiki was supposedly created because Wikipedia was too biased in liberals' favor, but the funny thing is, this wiki is ten times more biased than Wikipedia could ever hope to be. Scarecrowk

It's all very well to laugh, but perhaps you could work to improve what you think is lacking instead? New contributors are always welcome here.
Also note that Conservapedia doesn't claim to be unbiased - it openly has a declared US conservative point of view. Otherwise it would have to be called Unbiasedopaedia!--CPalmer 07:49, 21 May 2009 (EDT)
Right. Wikipedia says "we're neutral" and then they insert and defend bias. We basically say up front "we're biased!" which is not true bias, but declared POV. AddisonDM 11:53, 21 May 2009 (EDT)


File:NoSmoking.png, File:Ashtray.jpg. Here are the names of the images you requested about smoking. AddisonDM 23:08, 29 May 2009 (EDT)

Thanks Addison!--CPalmer 14:42, 3 June 2009 (EDT)


Thanks for your edits this morning!--Andy Schlafly 09:59, 11 June 2009 (EDT)

No problem - thanks for noticing!--CPalmer 10:21, 11 June 2009 (EDT)

Aditional Thanks

Thanks for helping clean my Metallicity article, I didn't realize I left that original extra paragraph in there, was using it to organize thoughts -- BMcP 15:13, 18 June 2009 [EDT]

Ok Serious now

If you agree to forget the past few minutes I will be constructive. My interests include the Darwinian influence on morality and black holes.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wheelchairman (talk)

I'm not an administrator, so don't have authority to forget/not forget anything! If you'd like to improve pages on, say, sin or black holes I'm sure that would be welcome.--CPalmer 10:06, 19 June 2009 (EDT)

The Vandal

How can we get rid of the 'Wheelchairman' vandal? Could we email a sysop? JohnFraiser 10:01, 19 June 2009 (EDT)

You can try posting on sysops' talk pages or even emailing them, but to be honest if any were online they would probably notice the activity in "Recent changes" anyway. That leaves us with the standard tactics of reverting, ignoring or appealing to their better nature.--CPalmer 10:06, 19 June 2009 (EDT)
Gosh, I thought I appeared to be "online". I'd better have Webmaster check it! Thank goodness Joaquin spotted it. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 19:11, 19 June 2009 (EDT)
I didn't see you in 'recent changes'. For future reference, do you get an alert automatically if someone posts on your page?--CPalmer 07:44, 20 June 2009 (EDT)
When your User talk page has a new edit, there should be a notice that appears in the upper right-hand corner of your screen view. That's what I see. Perhaps it is a profile setting. Alternatively, you can always click on "Watch this page" for highlighting of an edit to any page.--Andy Schlafly 08:02, 20 June 2009 (EDT)
I see a orange banner that says I have a "new" message, and links that either take me to the talk page, and another that takes me directly to the history "diff". That is how I manage to watch CP and still reduce the backlog TiVo has on it! --ṬK/Admin/Talk 08:10, 20 June 2009 (EDT)
I get the 'new messages' banner as well - I was just wondering if the admins got alerted even if they weren't actually looking at Conservapedia at the time. We could have done with a 'bat signal' when that joker was about yesterday.--CPalmer 08:29, 20 June 2009 (EDT)

Vice President of the United States

Thinking about this problematic title, shouldn't the link Vice President go to an article and NOT a person, that changes or possibly does, every election cycle? --ṬK/Admin/Talk 15:47, 7 July 2009 (EDT)

That would make sense, I think. Probably better for an American to write it though - we Brits don't have a vice-Queen!--CPalmer 07:59, 11 July 2009 (EDT)

Longest Running

User:FOIA has you beat by several months. You are the longest running Brit at CP. --Jpatt 12:10, 31 July 2009 (EDT)

Ah, I suspected there would be somebody. Thanks for the heads-up, as I believe Americans often say.--CPalmer 08:42, 3 August 2009 (EDT)


Thanks for this correction. --Ed Poor Talk 10:32, 28 August 2009 (EDT)

You're welcome, although I did put the ungrammatical sentence in in the first place!--CPalmer 11:45, 28 August 2009 (EDT)


Thanks for your edit to conservative! And thanks for your other superb work. I've learned from your contributions.--Andy Schlafly 11:10, 28 August 2009 (EDT)

Quite welcome. As a Brit, I've been looking for a succinct definition to sum up US conservatism and that seemed to fit the bill.--CPalmer 11:37, 28 August 2009 (EDT)
Britain seems to be swinging back to conservatism now. I'm optimistic as entries like Essay:Best New Conservative Words indicate. Regardless, thanks again for your insights.--Andy Schlafly 12:28, 28 August 2009 (EDT)
It's certainly likely that the Conservative Party will win the next election, though only some of their positions would be considered conservative by American standards. They do have some ideas on deregulating state education that you might find interesting.--CPalmer 12:39, 28 August 2009 (EDT)

Thanks again

I was editing dog meat at Wikipedia, and I absentmindedly inserted text for their article into our Windows bugs article. Thanks for that prompt correction; you saved me some embarassment; I looked like a graffiti artist for a moment there ;-) --Ed Poor Talk 11:31, 18 September 2009 (EDT)

Don't mention it! It did look weird, but I knew there would be an explanation.--CPalmer 12:01, 18 September 2009 (EDT)

Conservative Bible Project

Hi, there! In case you didn't know it, I've lately taken command of this Project, under the direct authority of Mr. Schlafly. That generally means that if you're going to participate in it, I need to know your qualifications. Here are mine: I can read ancient Greek almost as fast as I can read modern English; the only limitation I have is in vocabulary, and I have a Strong's and a Newman's Concise Dictionary.

If you would like to take on translating a whole book of the Bible, let me know. But all I ask is that people finish what they begin.--TerryHTalk 14:59, 17 October 2009 (EDT)

Hello Terry. I have just been looking to translate one verse each day, as much as an aid to my own understanding as a contribution to the project. Is this kind of low-key activity welcome, or should contributors make a more substantial commitment before getting involved at all?--CPalmer 09:40, 21 October 2009 (EDT)

So hah! -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 13:58, 10 November 2009 (EST) By the way, who's the first longest-running? -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 13:59, 10 November 2009 (EST)

Congratulations! I'll amend the page accordingly. The other one is FOIA - I think it may be a close-run thing between the two of you.--CPalmer 11:05, 12 November 2009 (EST)
Yeah, he's got me by about 15 days. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 12:08, 12 November 2009 (EST)

I haven't been around quite that long, but I have been around since early May 2008. --Benp 12:45, 27 November 2009 (EST)
Ah - thanks for letting me know. You've just got yourself a spot on the list.--CPalmer 07:28, 2 December 2009 (EST)

Super - it seems there's quite a few more than I thought!--CPalmer 08:33, 2 December 2009 (EST)

Bible quote text-popup

One of the best things about this site is that Bible references automatically show the text when you put the mouse over them. Example: Ezra 10:22.

That would be nice. Unfortunately, it doesn't. :)

(I don't know where to put this, so I'm putting it at the top) - User:EvanW 31 Oct 09

Ah, yes. Well, it used to, and it may do again in the future. I assume it's a temporary bug.--CPalmer 11:27, 12 November 2009 (EST)
