[10:37] <MGA73> Hi Sven_Manguard :-)
[10:37] <Sven_Manguard> Hello. We should talk in private. :S
[10:37] <MGA73> If you think it is needed....
[10:38] <MGA73> Oki that did not sound right :-o
[10:40] <wctaiwan> is hailsatan666 a disruptive username?
[10:41] <foks> Probably not
[10:41] <foks> Wait til they edit
[10:41] <Sven_Manguard> not really
�03[10:42] * Hurricanefan25 (~chatzilla@wikipedia/Hurricanefan25) has joined #wikipedia-en
[10:42] <wctaiwan> they've edited, but okay I'll leave it be.
[10:42] <wctaiwan> hey Hurricanefan25 :)
[10:42] <Hurricanefan25> Hey
[10:42] <Hurricanefan25> Anyone here willing to do a GA review for a GA review? I know I asked this yesterday though I'm too eager ;)
[10:42] <Beria> someone say fluff ?
[10:42] <Beria> or other adm? ;)
[10:43] <geniice> wctaiwan meh unless we are going to ban 13 year olds not much to be done
[10:43] <geniice> Beria?
[10:43] <Beria>
[10:43] <Beria> that is his only edit
[10:43] <Beria> is not a bit too much a block in infinite?
[10:43] <geniice> well I wouldn't do it
�03[10:43] * Falcorian (~Falcorian@wikipedia/Falcorian) has joined #wikipedia-en
[10:43] <Beria> someone did :S
[10:43] <wctaiwan> geniice: I'm not personally bothered by it, I just noticed it.
[10:43] <Beria> can't you remove it or reduce it?
�03[10:43] * Hurricanefan25 (~chatzilla@wikipedia/Hurricanefan25) has left #wikipedia-en
[10:44] <geniice> welll in theory yes
[10:44] <Beria> but?
[10:45] <wctaiwan> heh, I thought something fudged up in Safari :)
�03[10:46] * Hurricanefan25 (~chatzilla@wikipedia/Hurricanefan25) has joined #wikipedia-en
[10:46] <wctaiwan> odd, my Internet is horribly slow.
[10:47] <geniice> Beria politically complicated. I've left a note on the blocking admin's talk page
[10:47] <Beria> aff
[10:47] <Beria> wp policies
[10:47] <Beria> That is one of the reasons I love commons :D
[10:47] <Beria> if i don't like a block by other adm i revert :P
[10:47] <Beria>  no ones get hurt ;)
[10:48] <wctaiwan> we have the most outrageous incivility *and* the most frivolous disputes :P
�06[10:48] * Beria saw a link once about not change colours in templates
[10:49] <Beria> and i could not believe people actually fight for it
�03[10:49] * Johannes_WMDE (~jr@wikimedia/Johannes-Rohr) has joined #wikipedia-en

[10:51] <Rover456> So Commons is a utopian paradise?
[10:52] <geniice> Beria well if I really don't like it I revert but well I got de-sysoped for that a few times
[10:53] <geniice> Rover456 hard to say. Personaly I just do what I like and no one objects. Or in most cases notices
[10:53] <wctaiwan> what? no BRD in sysop actions? :P
[10:53] <geniice> wctaiwan well B shouldn't happend and R is kinda risky
[10:53] <Sven_Manguard> Rover456: Commons is a utopian paradise in a distopian  novel
[10:53] <Sven_Manguard> i.e. it's a hate filled place where nothing works right
[10:54] <wctaiwan> geniice: I was mostly kidding. But okay.
[10:54] <geniice> wctaiwan the real problem is that [[WP:OWN]] doesn't apply to admin actions
[10:55] <wctaiwan> meh.
[10:56] <geniice> hmmp. Despite its size [[Wey and Arun Canal]] has just 5 citations
[10:56] <wctaiwan> I think the fact that wikipedia manages to have a management team (*not* WMF—I mean the people who do the general policing and mopping and telling people off) that has such deep disagreements and yet works fairly well is pretty miraculous.

[11:09] <Sven_Manguard> Ironholds! I've been waiting for you for... err... 8 hours.
[11:09] <foks> Yeah Ironholds, you suck!
[11:09] <foks> <3
[11:09] <wctaiwan> poor Sven_Manguard has been standing by the door and peeking out every other minute and drumming his finger against the coat hanger.
[11:09] <foks> :D
[11:10] <Sven_Manguard> Nah. I figured that he'd get around to giving me the quote because he'll want to impress his bosses
[11:10] <Ironholds> Sven_Manguard: oh, sorry!
[11:10] <Ironholds> Sven_Manguard: I can offer more than that, too! Feel like covering the launch of AFTV5's community process?
[11:10] <Sven_Manguard> Sure.
[11:10] <Sven_Manguard> BTW your absence gave me time to do other things, like catch up on three months of webcomic reading
[11:11] <wctaiwan> wait, so Sven = writing for Singpost?
[11:11] <Sven_Manguard> As of the next issue, yes
[11:11] <Ironholds> Sven_Manguard: nice!
[11:11] <wctaiwan> speaking of webcomics, /me checks
[11:11] <wctaiwan> have fun with it.
[11:11] <foks> Ironholds being nice is quite unnerving if I'm honest
[11:11] <Sven_Manguard> I'll have two pieces in the Signpost on the 31st
[11:11] <Ironholds> Sven_Manguard: okay, so the survey data is looking really, really great; as of this quote we have *1013* responses
[11:11] <wctaiwan> :( still not here.
[11:11] <Sven_Manguard> Shit wow
[11:11] <Sven_Manguard> come into my office
[11:11] <Ironholds> sure; PM me?
�06[11:12] * foks makes it 1014
�06[11:12] * Sven_Manguard tazers foks for making the data obsolete :D
[11:13] <foks> ::
[11:13] <foks> :P
[11:13] <foks> Say "over a thousand", silly.

[11:14] <foks> Ironholds, if I'm honest, the survey needs another option in the "how often do you..." bit
[11:14] <foks> Never / Sometimes / Frequently / Very Often
[11:14] <foks> What about "very rarely"
[11:14] <foks> Or something
[11:14] <foks> "sometimes" seems a bit too frequwnt
[11:14] <foks> I guess it's too late now. :P
[11:15] <Ironholds> foks: I'll take it into account for next time :)
[11:16] <foks> Cool

[11:36] <wctaiwan> It was super effective!
[11:36] <Sven_Manguard> good, because my copyeditor tells me I use too many commas, so I have some extras
[11:37] <Sven_Manguard> ... to throw at Logan

�15[11:38] * Ty (~Ty@wikia/ZamorakO-o) Quit (Quit: Once upon a time, someone died. The end.�)

[11:39] <Logan_> Ow.
�06[11:39] * Logan_ throws a whale at Sven_Manguard.
�06[11:39] * Sven_Manguard shoots it down midflight with commas
[11:39] <quanticle> But you can apparently use too many periods. Case in point, Monty845 appears to be fresh out of them.
[11:39] <Sven_Manguard> shredded

[11:41] <wctaiwan> ... physics :(
[11:42] <wctaiwan> ... and what?
[11:42] <wctaiwan> Logan_: if you want to troll Apple, you should do it to Addihockey. I'm hardly a fan of most of their practices or the company itself.
[11:42] <geniice> quanticle strangely our WMD page doesn't mention black holes
[11:42] <Logan_> Oh, okay.
[11:43] <wctaiwan> on the other hand if you start arguing that Taiwan is and has always been part of PRC since its founding... >_>
[11:43] <geniice> Taiwan is occupied british territory. End of.
[11:45] <quanticle> geniice: It doesn't, but it should. After all, what else can literally destroy mass?
[11:45] <wctaiwan> weapons are by definition *designed*, no?
[11:45] <quanticle> wctaiwan: Not necessarily.
[11:45] <quanticle> What about rocks?
[11:46] <wctaiwan> fair enough.
[11:46] <Ironholds> quanticle: rocks were designed!
[11:46] <quanticle> A gravitational singularity is a very very very big rock. :D
�06[11:46] * Ironholds begins singing choir music
[11:46] <wctaiwan> it still feels a bit off though. A large crane building a skyscraper has destructive powers. It is not a weapon.
[11:46] <geniice> quanticle hawking radiation. Oh and if the WIMP hypothesis is correct (it probably isn't) then planets can destroy mass
�15[11:47] * JurassicJon ( Quit (Quit: Textual IRC Client:�)
�03[11:47] * SteveMobile (~SteveMobi@Wikipedia/Steven-Zhang) has joined #wikipedia-en
[11:48] <quanticle> geniice: That's true, but the amount of informational distortion in Hawking Radiation is so great, it's probably the closest the universe will ever get to true mass destruction.
[11:48] <quanticle> So... close enough.
[11:48] <Ironholds> wctaiwan: okay, look
[11:49] <Ironholds> is a sword a weapon?
[11:49] <Sven_Manguard> can anyone hear me, or is my internet dead?
[11:49] <wctaiwan> It is, unless it is a prop.
[11:49] <Ironholds> is a sword a weapon even when it's being used to do constructive stuff?
[11:49] <wctaiwan> it's alive, Sven_Manguard
[11:49] <quanticle> Sven_Manguard: ack
[11:49] <SteveMobile> Sven_Manguard: Hey
[11:49] <Ironholds> Sven_Manguard: you're here
�03[11:49] * Memorino (~chatzilla@wikipedia/Memorino) has joined #wikipedia-en
[11:49] <SteveMobile> A while ago you were congratulating me on something
[11:49] <wctaiwan> Ironholds: okay, what about 'intended' or 'used' as a weapon.
[11:49] <SteveMobile> But I wasnt here
�15[11:50] * Memorino (~chatzilla@wikipedia/Memorino) Quit (Quit: Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd�)
[11:50] <SteveMobile> What was it :p
[11:50] <Sven_Manguard> )#*&@)(&#@)*
[11:50] <geniice> quanticle from the POV of the universe a Lorentzian traversable wormhole connecting to another universe would count
[11:50] <Qcoder00> HI Sven_Manguard
[11:50] <wctaiwan> a decorative sword is never used as a tool to harm, and thus it is not a weapon. A black hole has not been applied as a weapon, and thus there is no reason to believe it is one.
[11:50] <SteveMobile> Heh
[11:50] <geniice> wctaiwan we don't know that
[11:51] <wctaiwan> geniice: do you believe in God? (dangerous territory... but eh)
[11:51] <SteveMobile> Sven_Manguard: I am curious as to what you congratulated me for .p
[11:52] <Ironholds> wctaiwan: okay, used as a weapon
[11:52] <geniice> According to Norton's Star Atlas, there have been twenty fairly bright novae between 1899 and 1936. No less than five of them have been in one small area of the sky, in the constellation Aquila. There were two in a single year (1936), and the 1918 Nova Aquila was one of the brightest ever recorded.
�03[11:52] * DarkoNeko (~udontcare@wikipedia/darkoneko) has joined #wikipedia-en
[11:52] <geniice> What's going on in this constellation? Why did 25 percent of the novae in a forty-year period appear in only 0.25 percent of the sky? Is the front line moving in our direction?
[11:52] <geniice> Arthur C. Clarke 1968
[11:52] <Ironholds> this means that a "weapon" is only a weapon some of the time
[11:52] <quanticle> geniice: True, but doesn't Hawking Radiation show that the black holes we have seen are not Lorentzian wormholes? In other words, would such a wormhole give off Hawking Radiation?
[11:52] <Ironholds> so, yes, anything can be a weapon, but only given certain circumstances or intentions
[11:53] <wctaiwan> Right, and since no intentions are known, we can't say they are.
[11:53] <SteveMobile> Paper clips can be used as weapons
[11:54] <geniice> quanticle we've never detected Hawking Radiation. as for Hawking Radiation and wormholes. maybe?
[11:54] <SteveMobile> Well it depends. No one would say a gun isn't a weapon,

[12:01] <wctaiwan> yeah.
[12:02] <geniice> there are references to controlled singularities in the culture universe and the Idirans did make a couple of stars go nova so there is no reason to think the culture can't use black holes as weapons

[12:28] <quanticle> geniice: To be honest, I don't really think that bankers are all that intelligent. Have you read any Nouriel Roubini?

[12:28] <geniice> quanticle the numbers of them with 1sts in things like maths suggests otherwise
[12:29] <quanticle> geniice: Right, but that doesn't mean they're talented at being bankers. If you read Fooled By Randomness, you'll see that there is a compelling case to be made that a lot of them are merely very lucky.

[12:31] <Qcoder00> Great
[12:31] <quanticle> geniice: I agree. In theory that would raise the salary that engineers can charge, eventually allowing them to reach parity with bankers in terms of compensation. In practice, it doesn't tend to work out like that.

[13:07] <Ironholds> Maryana: schedule it! Just don't do what I did and confuse GMT with UTC
[13:08] <Ironholds> I had to confuse them *three days* before they unify.
[13:08] <quanticle> Ironholds: There's a difference?
[13:08] <Maryana> heh :)
[13:08] <Ironholds> quanticle: at the moment, we're on daylight savings
[13:08] <Ironholds> this means we are an hour off
�15[13:08] * mattbuck (~mattbuck@ Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds�)
[13:08] <ToAruShiroiNeko> Ironholds uk should use GMT+12 to fuck with everyone
[13:08] <Ironholds> this means that Howie and Fabrice turn up at the time allotted to them, an hour before everyone else, and then have to leave for a meeting
[13:09] <Ironholds> this means I end up hosting 2 hours and 20 minutes of office hours, the last hour and a half on my own :p
[13:09] <geniice> ToAruShiroiNeko the last and only funmny pokemon joke
[13:09] <Ironholds> (although it was great fun, and a lot of users were really enthusiastic about the AFTV5. But it was very draining.)
[13:09] <quanticle> GMT varies with daylight savings time? I thought that was yet another timezone overlaid on the British isles (BST?). I thought the difference between GMT and UTC was leap seconds.
[13:09] <Ironholds> GMT is our time. You can tell, it's Greenwich Mean Time
[13:09] <Maryana> daylight savings is a tool of oppression by the capitalist overlords
[13:09] <Ironholds> in London, even the temporal flow is a mean bastard.
[13:09] <Maryana> (i'm trying to get into my halloween costume... i'm going as the iron curtain)
[13:10] <geniice> Ironholds Cameron wants to perminantly de-unify them
[13:10] <quanticle> Maryana: Sounds... heavy.
[13:10] <Maryana> quanticle: tin foil! :D
[13:10] <Ironholds> Maryana: strictly speaking that's not an iron curtain, then :P
[13:11] <quanticle> So you're not properly an Iron Curtain, then, are you. You're a tin (or more probably aluminum) curtain.
[13:11] <quanticle> :D
[13:11] <Ironholds> man, is it halloween already?
[13:11] <quanticle> Halloween is on Monday.
[13:11] <Ironholds> time to engage in the annual ceremonial Egging of the House
[13:11] <Maryana> no, see, that's very soviet. our five-year plan was iron... but we had to settle for tin foil.
[13:11] <Ironholds> oh, it's a Monday? FANTASTIC
[13:11] <quanticle> Whose house, Ironholds?
[13:11] <Ironholds> see, ten years ago, my little brother wandered on to my neighbour's lawn
[13:11] <quanticle> Maryana: Haha... that's brilliant.
[13:12] <Ironholds> the neighbour came out and screamed at him, making my brother burst into tears
[13:12] <Ironholds> this vexed me. Only I get to make my brother cry.
[13:12] <Ironholds> so every year for the last ten years on Halloween I have pelted his house with eggs and lumps of lard
[13:12] <Ironholds> taking particular care to hit his prized BMW, which he gets waxed and shined....every Monday :D
[13:12] <Ironholds> Silly bastard still hasn't worked out who does it.

[13:13] <quanticle> No toilet paper?
[13:13] <Maryana> quanticle: thanks! and cheap :)
[13:13] <Ironholds> toilet paper on a freshly shined beemer doesn't have the same (groan) impact as egg yolk
[13:14] <Ironholds> presumably I will eventually grow into a mature human being and stop punishing people for being dicks a decade ago, but that day has yet to arise.

�06[13:17] * Ironholds never really goes out on halloween. Something to do with having a social circle that mostly lives up to 9,000 miles away.
[13:17] <Demiurge1000> Hmm, so every time I see the Daily Mail interviewing some poor old pensioner about how yobs (mostly young) are out of control and pelting their house with eggs, and the govt needs to bring back capital punishment, conscription, and public logging, I'll realise... it's not actually yobs (mostly young), it's just Ironholds being a bit over-obsessive
[13:17] <Ironholds> ToAruShiroiNeko: different things, alas
[13:17] <Ironholds> Demiurge1000: no, just one person, and he's in his early 50s!
[13:18] <Ironholds> also, public logging? They'll tie me to treetrunks? BARBARIC
[13:18] <pakaran> hmm
[13:18] <Demiurge1000> Yeah but do you think the Daily Mail bother to fact-check ages and pension eligibility, or to interview more than one person in order to establish a "worrying trend"? :)
[13:18] <Ironholds> and before anyone starts going "ooh, you work for the Foundation nao, you should be more mature"
[13:18] <pakaran> i loved the daily mail's article about the "dangerous cult of emo"
[13:19] <Hedgehog456> Ironholds: They'll tie you to treetrunks, hang you, and then conscript you in the army.
[13:19] <Ironholds> Maryana is older than me and is dressing up for halloween in a shitton of tinfoil, apparently. I didn't realise adults still trick or treated ;p
[13:19] <Demiurge1000> I think they usually do it the other way round. Hanging first.
[13:19] <pakaran> (which, among other things, said that self-harm was a cult membership ritual, and the MCR song "black parade" was about a place where emos think they go when they die)
[13:19] <Ironholds> pakaran: it IS dangerous
[13:19] <Ironholds> it can seriously damage your ability to listen to or appreciate good music
[13:20] <pakaran> lol.
[13:20] <quanticle> Ironholds: No, no, toilet paper on the lawn.
[13:20] <ToAruShiroiNeko> pakaran emos will die
[13:20] <pakaran> ok i need to get going
[13:20] <ToAruShiroiNeko> just like non emos
[13:20] <quanticle> Once the morning dew hits it, it gets very soft
[13:20] <ToAruShiroiNeko> we all will die
[13:20] <Ironholds> quanticle: they've got a driveway, it doesn't really work. We're suburban Londonites! Drive or lawn, not both.
[13:20] <ToAruShiroiNeko> Ironholds how about lawn in the car on the driveway?
[13:21] <Ironholds> that sounds...confusing, actually

[19:06] <Ironholds> or Socrates! He knows that he knows nothing ;p
[19:07] <semitones> is it ok to copy text from other wikis if they are encyclopedic
[19:08] <Ironholds> semitones: other Wikimedia wikis, only with attribution
[19:08] <Ironholds> however, it may not be reliable
[19:08] <jorm> heh. i majored in platonic philosophy.
[19:08] <Ironholds> and other wikis are not considered a reliable source
[19:08] <semitones> Ironholds: ah ok
[19:08] <Ironholds> jorm: you'll enjoy my kantian deontology joke in the email I sent through, then
[19:08] <semitones> semitones: i wanted to copy from, but i guess i can paraphrase in my own words too
[19:09] <jorm> ever read "Anathem"?
[19:09] <Ironholds> Stephenson? It's on my pile of to-read books, but fairly low down
[19:10] <shimgray> good for a single long flight
[19:10] <Ironholds> (in the way are "The Wealth of Networks", Lessig's "Free Culture" and a load of russian lit. I'll finish the pile eventually)

[19:11] <Ironholds> hah. Nice!
[19:11] <jorm> one of my best friends is really good friends with neal, and told him my analysis, and neal was like, "yeah, that's dead on."
[19:11] <Ironholds> I've got free time this weekend, but am spending it at a hacking conference
[19:11] <Theo10011> Is that POS Seddon around?

It's about the experiences of a comp sci and philosophy graduate who was selected to be one of the human competitors in the Turing Test competition, and what he learnt about "being human" from looking at previous events and the nature of dialogue
[19:16] <Ironholds> it's pretty fun

[19:19] <Ironholds> okay, well if you're going to call him a piece of shit and tell people who interject to fuck off, please do so privately, not like this. He's not here right now - send him an email, leave him a memo, whatever.
[19:19] <Theo10011> Ok.
[19:19] <Theo10011> its all fine when you do it.
[19:19] <Theo10011> Now is the time to teach others about civility.

[19:21] <Ironholds> Theo10011, I've already explained to you how I'm trying to remain more civil. I think people like ToAruShiroiNeko can explain I've been making an effort.
[19:21] <ToAruShiroiNeko> huggling isnt civil
[19:21] <mattbuck> disarm a bomb
[19:22] <ToAruShiroiNeko> Ironholds is fine
[19:22] <Ironholds> It's rather silly of you to criticise me for disliking meanness after repeatedly enjoining me not to be mean ;p
[19:22] <ToAruShiroiNeko> really
[19:22] <Theo10011> You are Ironholds, just try and not be patronizing when others are genuinely angry.

[19:22] <ToAruShiroiNeko> wut?
�06[19:23] * ToAruShiroiNeko is confused
[19:23] <Theo10011> that was in reaction to the patronizing advice from someone who used to call people cunts and threaten to stab them in the eye on an hourly basis.
[19:23] <ToAruShiroiNeko> you guys are serious?

Now, I'm not interested in engaging with you or making this inflate further, nor am I interested in hearing you eff and blind across the channel. Please go and send him a memo and drop this.

[22:50] <LauraHale> Link?
[22:50] <SigmaWP> its trnascluded
�06[22:50] * barebone never voted on enwiki RfA.
�06[22:51] * LauraHale isn't an admin and has no idea who this guy is
�06[22:51] * barebone knows this secret guy is no longer secret.
[22:51] <LauraHale> Not a sock of thepoetlister?
[22:52] <Demiurge1000> oh, it's wosstheirname
[22:52] <Demiurge1000> I assume
[22:52] <Aranda56> ....
[22:52] <Demiurge1000> yeah, ?
[22:52] <Aranda56> my RFA is active
[22:52] <LauraHale> This is just ...
[22:53] <LauraHale> I feel like half the RfA should be redacted for [[WP:BLP]]. :/
[22:53] <Demiurge1000> LauraHale: Be bold!
[22:54] <LauraHale> Demiurge1000: And request redacting based on [[WP:BLP]] because mental health issues shouldn't be splattered across WP like that? :/
[22:54] <Demiurge1000> umm, no, perhaps not
[22:54] <Aranda56> LauraHale i had to to explain my desysopping
[22:54] <Demiurge1000> I predict Malleus will Oppose.
[22:54] <SigmaWP> :O
�15[22:55] * TParis (~TParis@wikipedia/TParis) Quit (Quit: ~ Trillian Astra - ~�)
[22:55] <LauraHale> Aranda56: Did you talk about the drugs you take?
[22:55] <Ironholds> Demiurge1000: Malleus has supported one RfA that I know of, and only one.
[22:55] <SigmaWP> Ironholds: Does Sarek really need the "confirmed" right?
[22:55] <Ironholds> SigmaWP: eh, probably not, but I cba to turn it back.
[22:55] <Aranda56> LauraHale i never took any drugs except for the ones i take now, and Geodon
[22:55] <SigmaWP> Heh
[22:56] <LauraHale> Aranda56: Ah.  Was yours as intensely personal as that?
[22:56] <Ironholds> Tristessa: yer a software architect? coming up to the big smoke for barcamp?
[22:57] <Aranda56> yea i have a disorder, inherited from my mother, only child so
[22:58] <Aranda56> why did Sarek got desysopped?
[22:58] <Aranda56> or desysop himself?
[23:00] <SigmaWP> requested
[23:00] <Aranda56> oh over that RFC thing?
[23:00] <SigmaWP> Not sure
�06[23:00] * Aranda56 don't want to see another drama SoV RFA
[23:01] <Tristessa> Ironholds: alas, don't have a ticket
[23:01] <Ironholds> Tristessa: damn! I'm giving ein talk
[23:02] <Tristessa> Ironholds: sigh, don't have a (worthwhile) employer, don't have a ticket, lol. it's been a sad year.
[23:02] <Ironholds> oh dear :(
[23:02] <Ironholds> for future reference, tommorris organises the bloody things. He can probably nab you one
[23:02] <Ironholds> (not this year, obviously, bit late)
[23:02] <Tristessa> I looked the other day, the latecomer tickets are £999
[23:02] <Ironholds> JESUS FUCKING CHRIST
[23:02] <Tristessa> no joke
[23:02] <Ironholds> when I went to 44con they were 300 quid
[23:03] <Tristessa> eh, this is the sort of thing I hate about conferences
[23:03] <Ironholds> I got in for free, because I had [[Open Rights Group|people in high places wanting me to go]]

[23:03] <SigmaWP> :O
[23:03] <Tristessa> it seems like the only times I had something to say at conferences I didn't have the money, and when I have the money I have nothing to say at them
[23:03] <Tristessa> (Wikimania is case in point)
[23:04] <SigmaWP> MBisanz: Purely out of curiousity, but do you have any opinions on renaming users to non-latin unicode characters?
[23:04] <Ironholds> Tristessa: which way around? :P
[23:04] <Ironholds> (re wikimania)
[23:05] <Tristessa> Both, at different times.
�06[23:05] * Tristessa laughs
[23:05] <Ironholds> ahhh
[23:05] <Ironholds> well, WMUK offers scholarships if you're speaking or in severe difficulty or whatever
�06[23:05] * Tristessa snorts.
[23:05] <Ironholds> so you can prod them into letting you to go DC if necessary
[23:05] <Ironholds> this is assuming they are not feckless gurning hacks, a statement I cannot comment on.
[23:05] <Tristessa> Formerly I had nothing to say, but now I don't have the money. :D
[23:05] <Ironholds> ahh
[23:06] <Tristessa> And, tbh, I think... WMF has moved on since I joined enwp in late 2004
[23:06] <Tristessa> I feel a bit like I don't belong here any more
�03[23:06] * DeltaQuad is now known as DQ|skype
[23:06] <Tristessa> it's possibly for the best in that I feel a bit of an outsider now
[23:07] <LauraHale> Tristessa: In what way?
[23:07] <Demiurge1000> Tristessa: Who're you? :)

[23:08] <Tristessa> LauraHale: I'm not. I'm from Brighton, UK.
�06[23:08] * SigmaWP seeks a check that isn't full of pro-Soviet propaganda
[23:08] <LauraHale> Tristessa: Weird.  Your IP address geolocates there
[23:08] <LauraHale> Anyway...
[23:09] <Tristessa> heh, i'm definitely nobody now on enwp.
[23:09] <Tristessa> LauraHale: So, just on the offchance of having been on the peripherary of a conversation with me, you decided to geolocate my IP?
�06[23:10] * Tristessa guesses IRC etiquette has kind of changed, meh.
[23:10] <LauraHale> Tristessa: On the off chance you were in Australia, I would be all over you with YOU BELONG! LET ME HUGGLES YOU!
[23:10] <LauraHale> I would have also responded the same way if you were in New Zealand, or on a Pacific Island.

[23:14] <Demiurge1000> Keepscases did have an RfA question recently, about WP editors inside high security jails.

[23:14] <LauraHale> SigmaWP: Nice.  NEeds more sources, but nice. :)
[23:14] <SigmaWP> Earwig: Can you create
[23:14] <Demiurge1000> As Keepscases' RfA questions go, that was quite normal.
[23:15] <Trusilver> Demiurge1000: Ah... I remember that one.
[23:15] <SigmaWP> It's only fair if his old account's contribs are also included in the RfA
[23:15] <Earwig> sure
