Hope your stay here is pleasant, Nihiltres! 90/10 is actually not a rule, per se, as you can read it says it may, not will be enforced. In our conservative world, we tend to rely more on common sense. I am alarmed your scope of interest is so narrow that all articles you would be interested in are protected. Here at Conservapedia that doesn't preclude editing, however. You are certainly invited, as everyone is, and as the protected template states, to leave suggested additions on the talk page. If you IM me on AIM, or leave a message on my talk page, I would be more than happy to unlock almost any article for you. Have a great weekend! --şŷŝôρ-₮KṢρёаќǃ 00:50, 15 September 2007 (EDT)

(post delayed by strange protection mechanism) Thank you, TK, and the clarification on 90/10 is quite reassuring, and reminds me of similar recommendations for common sense on Wikipedia - I somehow suspect that my edits may approach 10/90, given the nature of my position while here. That my scope of interest is so narrow is mostly because I tend to keep to Wikipedia, and my primary interest in creating an account here is to be able to alert Conservapedians to problems relating to Wikipedia here (GFDL violations are my primary concern), though I may occasionally wish to correct or modify other articles - as Jimbo Wales said, free culture knows no bounds. I am pleasantly surprised that Aschlafly has already made a positive change in fixing a GFDL violation I pointed out to him, and I hope that my occasional visits will be equally agreeable. I'm tempted to comment on some examples at Examples of Bias in Wikipedia or Conservapedia:How Conservapedia Differs from Wikipedia, because I don't think all of them are reasonable complaints, but I don't want to be overly antagonistic - my role here should be that of a friendly presence to help spot problems and ease tensions. I find it unfortunate that Conservapedia and Wikipedia are portrayed as being at such odds - there is no reason, even making the assumption (which I personally feel is misguided) that Wikipedia is liberal, that we cannot simply fill different niches.
