Evening cutie!
Aww, that was so sweet :) heh heh, I feel all warm, now. Bless you <3
I had a look at the FA standards page; Nothing whatsoever makes these articles unfit (unless you're homophobic, but who wants to admit that..). I did, however, see a few pretty spiffy sentences to our advantage:

  • The standard for featured articles is that they be as good or better than any other single page on that topic on the Internet.- I really think the LGBT article is that and more.
  • ...Search wikiHow for an article that addresses a topic you feel will appeal to the readers of wikiHow...."- LGBT community!!!

I think it's kinda... weird that people think that all wikiHow users are straight. Stupid wankers.
I found the piccie discussion page hilarious! There was nor reason to NFD it! We've got nude women (who have some modesty :P) on here! And, like you said, there are plenty of half naked lads on articles. Heh heh.
This is really getting out of it, now. Think we should bring something up on the forums, Benn?
it's good that you're both loving; so am I! XD

D-raeD rae said:

Yay, you're here :D
"in a devious bitchy cynical mood..."- no way, me too! XD
Right, I should think it best to type it here, then transfer it over to the forums, no? So we can both have a go at them at once :P Eh?
I'll browse the forums for the best spot to pop it on, until you're done typing your bit. I'm never good at snapping unless it's that time of month.. *ahem*
Then there's the matter of the name on the post; mine or yours ;P
Huggles and all <3 <3 (My Lord, what a love fest!)

D-raeD rae said:

Homophobic wankers, of course!
Ah, well... I hate that the site's ignoring the LGBT community; wikiHow is the universal How-to etc. etc. We've got all the holiday articles coming up for FA, which in my opinion, is more controversial than anything we've nominated. Heh heh, I'm biting my tongue, don't want to be politically incorrect :P
With the hols coming up, I read *somewhere.. God, I need to find that article!* that most kiddlies come out at this time, when they're closer to family and all that. This (Come out as LGBT) would be a perfect article to have up! Seriously.

At 17:50, Dec 02, 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Heh heh.. notice that sir's a common *opposing* voice on articles like those. But never mind...title says it all :P
Em, so I think I've just said something that didn't make me sound like a total idiot! We could copy/paste this into the forum (after spiffing dding to it, of course!):
I'm feeling that site's ignoring the LGBT community when it comes to FAs; wikiHow is the universal How-to etc. etc. We've got all the holiday articles coming up for FA, which in my opinion, is more controversial than anything LGBT related.
Now, I know my English wasn't exactly proper up there (double etc... ah!), but my mental thesaurus will start to work in a sec or two.
But forget about me! What would you like to say? You're more important, laddy. Let's here it!

D-raeD rae said:

Oooh, I love your tuppence worth! Forum worthy, that is!
So, now it's just the bit about the name; would you rather pop it on, or should I? I don't mind, either way, sweetheart :P As long as it gets out there!

At 18:43, Dec 02, 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Perfect :D Heh heh... I cannot wait to see the response on this one.
Now.. you know... who? I'll keep buggering about it until you answer! :P

D-raeD rae said:

OMG... twas not even up for five minutes and it's gotten a gawn of comments :P
I'm not liking the way it's going, though.
In the mean time, wouldjya mind taking a look at Apply Scene Eye Makup for me? Later, though, it's a bit awkward to do it now.
Eh, here's a list of FA candis; ye notice the trend? :P
Also, I should probably tell you that I played around with your userpage... I didn't mess anything up, I just added an "s".
Now, you go eat something and take a rest. It's around 8-9 with you, and you're probably starving. You've got class tomorrow :P
Hugs to you *and Luke, if he'll take'em :P* x0x

It looks great - brilliant, Benn, as always!

D-raeD rae said:

I'm a wee bit worried about you, Benn. I've just finished reading the discussion pages, and it seems like you're getting irritated (I don't blame you). Mind yourself, love. Please... you're doing a good job so far, and I'm sure you'll continue :) Just be careful and read everything you've typed before you push Post People are like snakes sometimes!
I thought you might like to hear about the new project thinger; it's really helpful, and it's not a bad way to raise contribs either :P What you do is pop on over to the NFD list and vote on at least ten articles a day. Delete, delete, delete!
And I gotta thank you, for spending some time with me yesterday; brightened up me birthday, you did <3

Evening cutie!
Ya, guy is known for extremity and... being an arse; never mind. They'll go away after they're done prodding. They became that way because you backed'em up in a corner :)
"I might go and have a good cry, I feel like it at the moment."- why, sweetie?! Don't be sad, or I'll be sad. "and I'm sorry. I feel awful at the moment, I don't know why. I miss Lukey :'("- Don't be sorry.. if you need time, I'm cool with that :) But you've gotta figure out why you're sad, mate, it's not good to be confuzzled. *hugs*
Where is Luke? Still that far away? *hugs*
As always, I'm here (or there, if ya get me) if you need to vent. You've already listened to my venting, which is awesome, as nobody ever does :P
Love love love xxxxxxxx

D-raeD rae said:

Good evening cutie!
I hope you had fun at the youth group :D And I hope you're feeling better.
Ah, I get what you're saying... I know it's not the same a face-to-face, and that I should be slapped with a fish *again* for saying it, but at least you've both got phones and interweb connections :(
You can't just go stay over, only telling your parents where you'll be? It's such a bummer that you can't see him until January! Nevermind, though, January is when the fun begins... new year and such :) And then there's that saying, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder." <3 Don't worry, sweetie, it'll all work out. Trust me.
Aw, your birthday's coming up.. when's the big day? I can assure you it won't suck, you're much too adorable for it to suck; adorable people always have swell birthdays. Besides, 18 is pretty spiffy enough in itself; you can vote, you're totally independent now... wowee! Milestone!!
Loving you xxx

D-raeD rae said:

I like your mother :) She sounds like a peach, she does.
You said "potential awkwardness", which give me the impression that it's if-and-if; you've seen their negativity, or are they just sending bad vibes?
22nd! See, I knew there was a reason we get along, we're both December 2's :P I'm pathetic, though... I'm Canadian, and I can't ice skate for crap XD I try and try, but I always end up with a soggy bottom... and I don't even make it to the ice. You're so kewl for being able to do it :D !! Wishing you the best <3
You sound like you're feeling better, mate <3 I'm glad <3

Heh heh, I get it... Jeez, I'm being nosy.. sorry.
Can you please, please, please find a way to use this piccie in the project? It's just appeals to me for some reason.
Well, moving forward is better than not moving at all! :D
Hugs x0x

At 19:28, Dec 05, 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Right, being nosy would be asking what colour hair Luke has...? XD
I was on RC, and came across this comment on sir's talk page, from a user (Admin!) by the name of Webster.. thought you might like to read it:

"if wikiHow will start to promote Homosexual/ Trans subjects ....its not going to be Kids friendly ... besides not being godly.

This is not a church or ministry-related wiki. The secular standards by which decisions are made do not take godliness into account. Some of your forum comments appear to indicate that you are either unable or unwilling to understand and accept that.

There are times and places to take unpopular stands (Ecc 4:1), and defend them "to the death" -- but this is not such a place, nor is this the time. The way you make your points does not always conform to the site expectations for civil conduct, as outlined in the Terms of Use. See 1Pet3."

Heh heh.....*hugs and high fives*

At 20:17, Dec 05, 2007

D-raeD rae said:

I cannot believe you answered that :P That was cute. Meself, brunette XD
It's great innit.. I didn't see the reply, though... should really try to find it.
Check this out; wutchu think of it? I hate that it's in the category.. seems kinda offensive, eh?

Nice patrolling tanight, sweetie... BTW, I sent'er a warning type thing, she's being rude; {{mean}}, if you ever want to use it ;D
Also, you use My Links? They're really handy..

At 17:07, Dec 08, 2007

D-raeD rae said:

My Links pop up on the left hand side of the page, where ever you go on wikiHow. They're really handy, as you can have internal links, as well as external links :P
Take a look at Create My Links on wikiHow for the basics; These are mine, so you can get an idea of what to put :D

Dear Benn, Hello there. I have noticed that Jenora lia c. has been asking wikihow contibutors personal information. I feel that Jenora lia c. should be blocked from wikihow for good. I cannot block him/her because I am not an admin, that is why I am asking you. So, may you please block that user from wikihow? Thanks for your time

Loiswade42Lois Wade said:

Good Morning!

Just a quick RC Patrol note... if a discussion page posting is A: reasonably on topic and B: not inflamatory or rude, you should probably leave it. JoMan is entitled to his/her opinion, and the discussion page is the proper place to express it. The same opinion in the article itself would be a definite rollback... but let the discussion go where it pleases.

Best regards... Lois

Hello. If you want to suggest a title change, please state the proposed title as such: {{title|My New Title}}. Or, post a message in the discussion page about it if you do not fill in a title. This was in regards to How to Change Your Windows 2000 and XP Boot Sceen Using StardockThanks!

D-raeD rae said:

You're burning up the RCs! Leave some for the rest, would ya! ;D
Here are some lesser known templates that you may want to use while you're out there:

  • {{age}}; use it when you see some tween posting his/her age all over the place.
  • {{Ttm}} and/or {{Ttm2}};use them when you spot chatters... they're nice changes, if you get fed up from the regular chatters one...
  • {{warningRC}}; you've probably seen this.. the bright orange warning. It's poppy, so it's a nice one to use with people who "don't get the message".
  • {{Ttm3}}; this one is for people who treat wikiHow like a dating/chatting site... they give out too much info, let the whole world know about them.. etc.

And while we're on the subject, you should go make yourself a wikiHow sandbox ;)

Loiswade42Lois Wade said:

Good Morning!

About "Not Make Enemies"... there's really nothing else on wikiHow like it... and folks probably wouldn't search for "be nice" to find the info it contains.

I'm thinking of perhaps changing the title to read "Avoid Making Enemies"... what do you think?

Ah, before you go and copy/paste those thingers in, remember that a My Links can only hold so much ;D
Feel free to make your own little templates, too; that mean template was a creation of Peanut Baby's... I did the wording :D It's good to make these things, as sometimes warnings/chatter messages are too hard; they do "brand you for life" :P
I'm alright, sweetie, thanks for asking <3 How're you doing? Missed the other day :P

Hi Benn, your reasoning is very sound but I am, unfortunately, not so great with templates. I can make them with a push but when I looked at that one, well, it just bamboozled me. My guess would be that many admins who could fix this - just not this one! Apols, there are things that I am yet to work out!

You still want to take care of Doggy? I can, if you like; nagging and such can get annoying (eh? XD) But only if you're done with it.
When do you get off for the hols? Tomorrow's me last day; 29th of December we get back, though.
And, jasn, you may want to change to colours of the text below your little image thingers up top; they're heck hard to read, mate.

Eh, could you do me a favour and see if Apply Scene Eye Makup's been edited in the last few days, please? I can't get the history of it to load! Rawr.
"...and I can't be bothered to add extra parameters just for the talk page - even though it would take me like...... ten seconds...."- that makes me laugh. You can't be arsed to change it, because you're so darn cool XD Nevermind.

I guess she's done a redirect as well, then... thanks :P
Doggy needs to be dealt with; technically, she's harassing users. I'll have a go, but if I come out useless, I'm calling you!
Could you take a look at Make Callaloo for me? It's really yanking my chain for some reason.
Aw, gosh. I feel all special- they're blue :D I love you, that's sweet XD

Well Benn, you know that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! Thanks for following that "thing" up (for want of a better explanation).

Evening darling!
Ah, I've had a word with doggy... she'll become a page designer. Although, page designers need a bit more experience with wikiHow and HTML, but at least it'll keep her settled. You think there's anything more to do?
Everything yanks my chain these days :P Thanks for taking a look at it for me *huggles*
Second last comment on here; someone likes you :P
Can I bother you for an opinion? Wutchu think of these? I'm thinking of ripping one or the other off, for a formal.

And, if you're free, could you do me a favour and copyedit Become Friends With the Nerds for the BSP? Heh heh.
Big HUGS and cuddles x0x0x0x0x

I'm actually very glad that you brought this to my attention, since I've been wanting to know how to address that linking problem ever since wikiHow switched over to the new design layout.

I'll probably be sifting through templates now looking for bad syntaxes. Thanks again!
