What do you thing of the logo?--Silent Penguin 11:52, 9 January 2007 (EST)

Well, it does its job for now. Perhaps we could have a logo competition once the wiki gets enough contributors. Until then, it is an able logo. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:54, 9 January 2007 (EST)

its quite hard to think of anything good, i didnt want to do anything too inapropriate or random, because that woul be confusing--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 11:57, 9 January 2007 (EST)

  • Yes! It feels so good! Ahem... *removes furby*...
    • Yay! Thanks for the re-welcome. Haha, you can bet on me staying insane forevermore. Just take a look at Subbuteoan Justgenerallysick Greens for but a mini-demonstration, a speech declaring my word of insanity to the peopleZes of Nationalist Propaganda. And, if you wish, you can stalk me and obtain my friends' phone numbers and ask them personally. MetalFlower.jpg


The other thing is we need a name for the forum, any ideas.--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 12:02, 9 January 2007 (EST)

Is it possible for you to set one up here? Not sure if the correct software is installed. You probably know more about it than me, though. As for a name, not sure really. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:09, 9 January 2007 (EST)

It looks like it isnt installed, damm, i wish we could use a proper server--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 10:22, 10 January 2007 (EST)

We could set up a remote forum at Proboards, or something, or keep the traditional wiki formatting method. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:50, 10 January 2007 (EST)
Nice spot on the control panel--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 12:15, 11 January 2007 (EST)
Well, it turns out you have to be an admin to change that anyway - I just checked. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:19, 11 January 2007 (EST)
That's weird, what's the point in having a button to protect it then.--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 12:20, 11 January 2007 (EST)

The Really big buttons[edit]

they appeared to be the wrong way round, unless they where supposed to be that way.--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 12:10, 17 January 2007 (EST)

Heh, actually they were: it wouldn't be illogical otherwise :) -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:22, 17 January 2007 (EST)
Yeah, OK, I'll give you that, ill revert them then--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 12:23, 17 January 2007 (EST)


Its your turn to write an article, or pick the best you have written for 06, and feature it tomorrow--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 08:32, 21 January 2007 (EST)

Great, I'll probably do TRBBTDDA, if I'm around. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:30, 21 January 2007 (EST)

Such wonderful confusion[edit]

Adding that Locigal category prompted me to escalate the madness even further: (now, I hope no one will add all of them to all of them, as that would make it less confusing. if you can, feel free to make it worse, though)

Logical is in Illogical.

Illogical is in Logical and Locigal.

Locigal is in Illocigal and Illogical.

Illocigal is in Locigal. --Fluffalizer 15:49, 26 January 2007 (EST)

A logical comment[edit]

NEE NAW NEE NAW WAAAAAAOOOOOOOOO--MrMetalFLower 08:52, 29 January 2007 (EST)

Crap, who called the cops? -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:38, 29 January 2007 (EST)
I did, *cue evil laugh*--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 12:06, 29 January 2007 (EST)


I'm outraged Hindleyite. It's been three minutes and still no response from Illogicopedia about my free holiday. And from a thoruogh analysis of the holiday home it needs the roof fixing, the toilet cleaning and the floor needs a right old scrubbing. I was expecting more from a cardboad box house. -- Flippin' Fool 14:38, 1 February 2007 (EST)

Better than a kick in the teeth, or even a weekend in Prestatyn. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 14:40, 1 February 2007 (EST)
Yes I agree, I've always preferred the cardboard foundations compared to a weekend holiday at Prestatyn in a newspaper. Never been good at the camping cooking thing, whenever I try and stick my can of beans on the homemade cooker (Made from three identical twigs, an elastic band and a Santa Claus candle) it falls over, the beans spill and it makes a right mess of the newly laid Hello! Magazine rug. You'd have thought that they'd have invented fire proof paper by now, too. I did that in the last residence I lived in as well. Didn't help that I soaked the place with diesel; it was an attempt to scare off any of those bloody cardboard box wearing thieves. They're always looking for something to put their valuables in.
Santa Claus candle... heheheh. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:42, 2 February 2007 (EST)


just in case you wanted to know, if i am here i will be sitting on #illogicopedia at, ok?--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 05:47, 3 February 2007 (EST)

Cool, I'll try and join but my connection is laggy this week. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 05:52, 3 February 2007 (EST)
Heh, if not we can just use pm talk, broadband, faster my ass--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 05:55, 3 February 2007 (EST)
Meh, my browser can't handle IRC today, which is weird because MSN Messenger is working. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 05:58, 3 February 2007 (EST)
Do you want my address to add me to msn then? its my email daddress i used to register on the forum, just like in my profile and you should see it.--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 05:59, 3 February 2007 (EST)
I pmed you at the forum. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 06:12, 3 February 2007 (EST)

Could you read this and give some comments on it?[edit] --Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 13:20, 8 February 2007 (EST)

Done and dung. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 13:35, 8 February 2007 (EST)
Thanks--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 13:55, 8 February 2007 (EST)


The new image is nice, but when viewed as the site logo, a bit of the bottom (part of the "In illogic we trust") is clipped by the top of the sidebar. Atleast this goes for Firefox; in IE, the whole image is visible. Moving the sidebar down a bit (if possible) or downsizing the image a little bit should fix it. --Fluffalizer 08:41, 10 February 2007 (EST)

problem solved, looks fine in firefox now--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 14:00, 10 February 2007 (EST)
Is it just me, or is the user control bar (Username, my talk, preferences etc.) supposed to be on the top left hand side? If not, it might just be an IE thing. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 13:14, 11 February 2007 (EST)
It looks correct in Firefox, but indeed, in IE it for some reason appears there. --Fluffalizer 13:26, 11 February 2007 (EST)

Okay, Hindleyite.[edit]

We're putting you on a brand new medication. It's called Death Cheese. Here, try some. David 11:18, 17 March 2007 (EST)

We've been nominated for feature!

Too late now! We've vacated Editthis. Jumped ship. -- Hindleyite 13:04, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Your monobook page[edit]

Hey does you monobook page generate the wiki backgound like the wikipedia and uncyc, as the white background hurts my eyes.--Silent PenguinPenguin_foot.JPG 15:31, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Yeah I'm just working on it now. I'll try applying it to the sitewide css and see what happens. Might need to hard refresh to see it. -- Hindleyite 15:34, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
Well please let me know when you get it to work--Silent PenguinPenguin_foot.JPG 15:39, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
It Works! woot, Thats a bit better--Silent PenguinPenguin_foot.JPG 15:40, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
Its perfect all apart from the fact the google ads aren't transparent so it doesn't look right. That's a shame--Silent PenguinPenguin_foot.JPG 15:48, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
Darn Google ads... -- Hindleyite 15:49, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Category template[edit]

Why dont you make/find a bot that will add the category stuff for you, rather than bothering with doing it yourself?--Silent PenguinPenguin_foot.JPG 16:42, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

There are bots that do that stuff? -- Hindleyite 16:43, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, at least i think so. I dont really go into that stuff, there are bots which interlink and stuff like that too.--Silent PenguinPenguin_foot.JPG 16:49, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Heh, I wouldn't know how to code a bot. Besides it might be more reliable to have users add the cats. -- Hindleyite 17:37, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Unless it was radically different from the coding I've done before, I think I could make one. Though I'd need something to start me off, never having done any bot programming or anything meant to interface with wikis before. As for the reliability, you couldn't reliably replace all the work with bots. You could lessen it, though, having them deal with the obvious. For example, putting articles with "cheese" or "cheesy" in their title in Category:Cheese, and making sure all categories have the catBrowser. --The Divine Fluffalizer 17:42, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
The catbrowser thing would be quite useful, but I doubt there would be a large enough volume of cheese articles to warrant a 'Cheesebot'. Might be funny though. -- Hindleyite 17:44, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Cheese was an example; you could make one that would put articles into categories with names containing words from the article title. --The Divine Fluffalizer 17:48, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Heh, I understood what you meant. Might be useful if you could make it have multiple commonly created article names, maybe 'Jesus', 'cheese' and the one letter category or something, that auto categorise certain things. Would you be able to look into it? -- Hindleyite 17:51, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
I'll do. --The Divine Fluffalizer 19:23, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Excellent, dude. I read somewhere earlier that there are a variety of programs you can code bots with. -- Hindleyite 19:34, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
A text-editor would be it, if you are to be able to define exactly what you want. Languages may differ, though. I'm familiar with C/C++, Java and PHP. Python seems very popular for bot-coding, and it'd take a few days to get a relatively good hang of. There are frameworks for bot-coding, so I wouldn't need to implement the basic functionality (luckily, as I have no experience with such software) if I find something suitable to base it off. The question is where to run a bot, though, if successfully made... --The Divine Fluffalizer 19:56, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Maybe, after a bot has been made and tested locally, it could be made to run from the mirror site, where SP has control of what goes...? --The Divine Fluffalizer 20:50, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
What might be better is to make a bot that Exports every page that has been edited on this wiki and imports it into the other wiki and another to copy and upload images every newly uploaded image, is that possible?--Silent PenguinPenguin_foot.JPG 20:56, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Technically, but it'd quite an ugly solution for synchronizing the wikis. Wikia provides database downloads, so it'd be simple to update by hand, or semi-automate so that something, when ran, could download and apply it. --The Divine Fluffalizer 21:26, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
It's been a while now, so I thought it might be good to say how this matter is going. I think I could make a bot based upon the pywikipediabot framework, but it will have to wait until sometime during summer with all that I have to do around now. --Fluffalizer 00:52, 7 Aym 2007 (UTC)
(Moves typewriter back to left hand side) That would be cool. Take your time with it if need be, there's no rush. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:21, 7 Aym 2007 (UTC)

Hey, I wanted to make a userbox for uncyc which states that we go on ?pedia, but to do that could you please link me the image in the top left hand corner? you know, with the banana and everything. Thanks, Zerotrousers 10:02, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

That sounds like a great idea. The wiki logo is here. -- Hindleyite 11:22, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

'Tis I, Rabbi Techno. Thought I'd come over and see what you folks are up to on the Uncyc alternative. Good to see it going somewhere :) RT 14:13, 19 Aym 2007 (UTC)

Ah, glad you could make it here. Yeah, it's more of an anti-Uncyc. Not that we don't like UP. It's growing in userbase all the time, and pretty soon we'll be bigger than Wikipedia. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 18:08, 19 Aym 2007 (UTC)

The blog is like broke. well, the link to our forum leads to the old one, fancy changing it next time you go on there?

Feexed. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:44, 22 Aym 2007 (UTC)

Why are you on now??? (sinister inquiring glance)[edit]

is it lunch break at school/college/uni/work or are you just bored at home? TReich (My Bad)

A bit of both, I finished Uni and am waiting for my results, so yeah, I'm back home. I suppose I should be doing something more constructive but instead I usually end up messing around on here. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:06, 24 Aym 2007 (UTC)

It's a list of my articles that I'm putting on my watchlist (changin' accounts is a bitch)

Oh right. Wow, that was a quick response. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:08, 24 Aym 2007 (UTC)

Yay illogicast :P thanks

You may find it easier to rename the file if possible: it's rather a profane song name.

p.s. is there any way to include the audio file actually on the page? It'd make it so much better for the reader :P


It seems I can't upload it to the podcast for you but if you sign in with the Username "Illogicopedia" and password "francisedec" you can choose to upload to the ?pedia public channel.
And yeah, you can kind of add the audio to the page in the form of a link: we have an audio template {{Illogicast|link= of file.ogg}}, for example:
  This page has been made into audio,  
just in case you're blind.

[1], thought you might wanna see this, and tell me what you make of it either here or on IRC.--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 20:02, 19 Yoon 2007 (UTC)

You should come onto IRC more often, your on the wiki so much, and there is normamaly someone there, its not the same without you :( --Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 14:04, 22 Yoon 2007 (UTC)
I think I should but usually I can't be bothered or there's nobody there when I do log on. -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 14:07, 22 Yoon 2007 (UTC)
Maybe you should get something like XChat, mIRC or something, so you dont have to use the gateway. if testicles managed to sort out xchat then im sure you can manage.--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 14:14, 22 Yoon 2007 (UTC)

Welcoming new users[edit]

generally as i patrol the site i try and welcome nnew users quickest. i see your point on pestpokku's talk page about new user welcoming quickness. I should of mentioned i check everything on recent changes, usually first. I need a life.

Heh, I was joking. It's a good thing that we have people who write personalised welcome messages rather than the templated ones. I just thought it funny that Pespokku had three welcomes :D -- Newforum.png Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 20:34, 20 Yoon 2007 (UTC)

I know its good but it proves i have too much spare time. Still in a week or so i'll be away from the site for the bit then in the proper summer hols i'll be away for about a month.

I was thinking how maybe we should have a standard welcome of information which is build into the personalised welcome, so like a thing with links to important pages but no other text, ie. bullet points, so that users can write their own messege but still have the facts in it, and theny anyone after just punches in a welcome messege without the added template.--Silent PenguinPenguin Foot.png 20:49, 20 Yoon 2007 (UTC)
