I do not understand why my efforts to create an entry are nihilled within minutes??? Palmidrol —This unsigned comment was added by EndoCan (talkcontribs) at 4:22, August 29, 2014‎.

You weren't creating an entry, you were adding to an entry that already exists, and was already quite adequate. Your addition was the kind of information that belongs in an encyclopedia (if there), not in a dictionary. It also wasn't formatted properly. Chuck Entz (talk) 18:58, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

No title[edit]

why do you just erase instead of making things better? --Wolf Hoog (talk) 00:21, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Why do you create junk instead of making it better first? It's not my job to clean up your mess. Re-add something properly, with proper citations and research, and I won't delete it. Equinox 00:44, 2 August 2014 (UTC)


What makes sodomite marriage and folk psychology sum‐of‐parts and fag marriage and folk etymology not? --Æ&Œ (talk) 08:00, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

I make my best judgement. Nobody else works on WT:REE. If you want these entries and consider them worthwhile, create them yourself. Thanks. Equinox 15:31, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Also maybe fag marriage and folk etymology are sums of parts; I did not say otherwise. But removing apparent SoPs from REE is different from deleting a pre-existing entry. Equinox 15:34, 4 August 2014 (UTC)


Sorry, I just realized I was somehow NOT on "paleface". Two kinds of pork (talk) 02:06, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Brand names[edit]

If brand names aren't allowed, why does Pepsi exist?

my edit[edit]

This was a test. But Planetesimal is an existing german noun. See [1]. We encountered a problem in the german wiktionary. It seems to be related to the new mediawiki softwareversion installed tonight. The problem is, that if you enter a non existing pagename in a rhyme page using User:Yair_rands rhymeeditor this pagename is created as an empty page. I just tested if this also happens in the english wiktionary, because we ported the rhymeeditor from here. I found you have the same problems. -- Formatierer (talk) 12:56, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Hmm. We seem to have little input or control into what Mediawiki does, but you could raise this on WT:GP. Equinox 12:57, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
It might be a change in the api, so that the rhymeeditor has to be fixed. But i didnt figured this out yet. But if the rhymeditor is used frequently on english wiktionary, you might get a few empty entries the next days. -- Formatierer (talk) 13:06, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Re one-way interaction bans[edit]

Wikipedia has them, and they are as dumb as you probably imagine. - -sche (discuss) 21:51, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Almost all of the nonsense drama on Wikipedia is garbage. Sometimes they can't even keep their own admins and sysops in good reputation. Rædi Stædi Yæti {-skriv til mig-} 04:36, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
I continue to maintain that things would be better off if Kephir were forbidden from interacting with me. The bullshit rights removal of a day or two ago and the accusation of trolling are the last two instances of a very long list of unproductive interactions Kephir has done against me.

Where I got my username.[edit]

I just thought you might want to know that my username is named after my favorite episode! I know that the plots for the episodes on my wiki are extremely detailed, but just to let you know they're actually supposed to be that detailed. Rædi Stædi Yæti {-skriv til mig-} 07:58, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Mixing Sailors Vandal's Other Entries[edit]

See stäkbord‎ for a typical entry of theirs. They go to great lengths to construct forgettable-looking "Swedish" entries out of carefully-crafted pieces of nonsense. The result is rather lame for something with that much detailed thought going into it. We are not amused... Chuck Entz (talk) 22:27, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

the mallcore word[edit]

sorry about that mistakes edit. I decided to add a new definition since mallcore also can be known as a disparaging term for nu metal so I kept the old definition on the page but added a new one with citations




43 Ariadne IS an Asteroid. Check if you do not believe me. 15:59, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

I was the one who undid your edit this time. It is definitely true that 43 Ariadne is an actual thing, but the question here probably is not if 43 Ariadne is an actual thing. My knowledge about the rules here on names of asteroids is low, to be honest, but I do think that Equinox's motive in rollbacking your edits was that the asteroid may not be suitable for our criteria for inclusion. You may want to check that page out and read it before considering to add this again. Rædi Stædi Yæti {-skriv til mig-} 04:08, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

strike out looking[edit]

You said, "probably obvious anyway, from strike out?" It isn't, though, because the concept isn't mention in strike out, strikeout or look. Purplebackpack89 01:47, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

looking probably deserves a baseball definition, if we don't think we should have a baseball sense at look#Verb. It certainly isn't unique to strike out. DCDuring TALK 04:36, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Do you think we should have strike out swinging too? DCDuring TALK 04:41, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Strike out swinging is more obvious than strike out looking, though. Purplebackpack89 14:42, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
