    I like our wiki with all the madness in my soul.
    I think it reflects the collective brain of Sciforums.

    Whatever it is reflects whatever this place is.

    Isn't this something like a parody of reality ?

    OK, so you got a parody of an encyclopedia.

    What's the beef ?

    I guess I should read some more of it someday & maybe I'll find out.
    LoL

    No, you should write more of it - you have a possibly God-given way with words.

    Wikis evolve to be what their contributors want them to be. That is all.

    I like the 'random page' button on wiki. I wonder if we could have a 'random thread' button on sciforums.

    Oh, wait, one more thing.

    I have noticed that a lot of the contributions are badly-spelt, badly-punctuated, poorly-structured and generally look like they were written by 4-year-olds. Personally I enjoy reading crap but only well-written crap. However, those who plan on taking the wiki in a more sober direction should be sure to pack a dictionary and thesaurus for the trip. No-one is going to give your ground-breaking scientific ideas due consideration if it looks like you typed them up blindfolded.

    Come on.
    How obvious is it that that was a joke?
    It isn't difficult to tell the serious from the nonserious.
    It's obviously a reference to Valich sending me a picture of an inverted uterus after I called him out on another one of his tirades of tired pseudo garbage.

    Anyway.
    I didn't like it too well. No. But, I didn't get you banned, did I? Why? Because I knew it was a joke. I simply asked you not to do it again, that's all.

    They're joking.



    As to the wiki. I think it's fine the way it is. Personally, I don't get the people like Q, Athelwulf, and Vslayer who get sand in their panties over humorous comments made in their profile. That's sort of the sciforums way. Always has been. I wish Dr. Lou were around to do some editing. He'd be great at this. It was always his forte.

    As to my page, Vslayer took it on himself to fix the vandalism, but I reverted because I found it funny. And part of it is dead on. Much like all of Hugh Jass's contributions. Some over the top (and obviously so) and some dead on.

    What's the problem?
    Get a sense of humor, guys.

    This wiki will be a mix of serious and humorous. Just like the threads in the forum. Why the hell would you expect them to be any different?

    As to moderation, I personally haven't seen anything yet worthy of moderation. Some light-hearted character jabs, but nothing even worthy of the title 'flaming' or as bad as some of the shit that goes on in the forums at large.

    The wiki is fine.

    Aye.

    Anyway, all the wiki needs is a routing system that sends spectacle-wearers to the scientifified version of a topic and the rest of us to the funny one. Any stupid old tosser can see that.

    I found it.

    Oh, wait... I screwed up the link somehow.

    Clearly I'm not qualified to operate this high-tech wonder-gizmo.
