[13:42] <Pesky> You still working now, Ironholds ?
[13:44] <Ironholds> Pesky: indeed
[13:44] <Ironholds> last-minute survey analysis
[13:44] <Pesky> You're mad!
[13:44] <Pesky> How's the survey looking?
[13:44] <Ironholds> I've worked 12 hours since close of business Friday
[13:46] <Pesky> ew
[13:46] <Ironholds> pretty good! It torpedoes a lot of assumptions about NPPers, actually
[13:46] <Pesky> That's gotta be good
[13:46] <Ironholds> well, yes and no
[13:46] <Pesky> It says we're all wrinklies?
[13:46] <Ironholds> something like that :P
[13:46] <Pesky> hehe
[13:46] <Ironholds> the average NPPer has an undergraduate degree, is over 21 and has been editing since 06
[13:46] <Ironholds> the problem with this is it means there's now no popular theory for why some people who do it are mean
[13:46] <Pesky> I am having so much trouble with my  back that I can't sit at the keyboard for long at a time
[13:46] <Ironholds> I'm having to rely on the null hypothesis: maybe they're just dicks?
[13:46] <Pesky> Me included?
[13:46] <Ironholds> (joke. the null hypothesis is "maybe NPP is so stressful it turns people into dicks")
[13:46] <Ironholds> you haven't been editing since 06, you're an outlier
[13:46] <Pesky> Noooo, reeeallY!  I would *never* have thought5 of that one!
[13:46] <Pesky> I started editing in 06 ...
[13:46] <LauraHale> Ironholds: New popular theory: Old hands are tired and have short fuses, even while believing in core mission?  Can that be new theory?
�06[13:46] * LauraHale started seriously editing this year
[13:46] <Pesky> but it would be true to say I haven't been editing *since* 06
[13:46] <Pesky> ever since, I mean
[13:46] <Ironholds> LauraHale: that's an excellent point, actually. I did put together a way of testing fuse length, but there are too many variables for it to be testable.
[13:46] <Pesky> I think I probably have a very long fuse, but then I;m an outlier
[13:46] <LauraHale> Ironholds: Uncontrolled and dependent variables are a pain in the ass.
[13:46] <ToAruShiroiNeko> LauraHale could I make you edit an article?
[13:46] <Ironholds> you live in the new forest raising ponies
[13:46] <Ironholds> you're an outlier in so many ways :P
[13:47] <Ironholds> LauraHale: fuckin' A.
[13:47] <LauraHale> ToAruShiroiNeko: Link?
[13:47] <Pesky> When I get short-fused, given the opportunity, I go and smash something on the field, with a 12lb sledgehammer
�06[13:47] * LauraHale pat pats Ironholds 
[13:47] <ToAruShiroiNeko>
[13:47] <Shirik> you own a 12 lb sledgehammer?
[13:47] <Qcoder00> Pesky: You don't take an axe to logs?
[13:47] <Pesky> yes
[13:47] <LauraHale> I see we've both taken similar resea�rch methods classes. :)
�15[13:47] * mareklug (~mareklug@wikipedia/mareklug) Quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds�)
[13:47] <Pesky> I also go and clear undergrowth with a large axe :D

[13:47] <Ironholds> LauraHale: actually I've never taken a research methods class
[13:47] <Qcoder00> What does someoen need a 12 lb sledgehammer
[13:47] <ToAruShiroiNeko> LauraHale it is a developing article with new information
[13:47] <Ironholds> I just spent two years studying pure statistics
[13:47] <Pesky> Whacking in fence posts
[13:47] <LauraHale> ToAruShiroiNeko: Not touching articles about murders :/
[13:48] <ToAruShiroiNeko> I believe article needs more info on individual murders
[13:48] <LauraHale> I hate statistics.
[13:48] <ToAruShiroiNeko> LauraHale but its nazi murders
[13:48] <Qcoder00> pesky:  My My Grandma , what a big axe you have? All the better to kill wolves with ;)
[13:48] <Pesky> I want a seriously BIG axe
[13:48] <Pesky> Like a Viking war axe
[13:48] <Qcoder00> Pesky: Are those even legal?
[13:48] <ToAruShiroiNeko> Qcoder00 of course
[13:48] <Shirik> I don't see why they shouldn't be
[13:48] <Ironholds> Qcoder00: lawyers tend not to stick around to argue precise points with someone waving 30 pounds of sharpened steel in their face
[13:48] <ToAruShiroiNeko> as long as you claim it is for personal use
[13:48] <LauraHale> ToAruShiroiNeko: I'm uncomfortable touching articles about murderers while court action may be ongoing.
[13:48] <Pesky> Did you know you can strip an entire bramble thicket off in one fell sweep, with a 12lb axe?
[13:49] <ToAruShiroiNeko> LauraHale the content I am interested in are undisputed facts
[13:49] <Qcoder00> Ironholds: Isn't that why the Commons cxhamber is it's current size?
[13:49] <ToAruShiroiNeko> the woman is probably not responsible of any of the murders
[13:49] <Pesky> The best big axes are the ones with a semicircular blade edge on the cutting side
[13:49] <ToAruShiroiNeko> the suspects have killed themselves
[13:49] <Qcoder00> Ironholds: To stop members on opposing benches being able to reach others with a sword?
[13:49] <Pesky> Saddler's round knife is also a lethal weapon
[13:49] <Ironholds> Qcoder00: not size, no, but the lines on the floor are there for that reason
[13:50] <LauraHale> suspects =/= Guilty. Woman probably innocent is a line I'd not like to be editing across.
[13:50] <ToAruShiroiNeko> she is not innocent
[13:50] <ToAruShiroiNeko> but she probably wasnt the person pulling the trigger
[13:51] <Pesky> Meta-question of the day: who is "innocent" in the full meaning of the word? (not counting pre-verbal infants)
[13:51] <ToAruShiroiNeko> The article coveres murders of people whoes murders remained a mystery for the past - I am more concerened with those old murders as they are presented in articles years old
[13:51] <ToAruShiroiNeko> but if you dont want to get involved thats fine too
[13:51] <Ironholds> Pesky: me, and I'll stab you if you say otherwise
[13:51] <ToAruShiroiNeko> LauraHale do you know anyone who would help edit this article?
[13:52] <Pesky> Qcoder00:  did you know that it's possible to decapitate someone with one swipe of a saddler's round knife? (provided that one has the appropriate uper-body strength)
[13:52] <LauraHale> ToAruShiroiNeko: No, as the editors I know tend to be sport people or Aussie people.
[13:52] <Qcoder00> I didn't
[13:52] <LauraHale> Or Military history people.
[13:52] <quanticle> Pesky: Where is the new forest?
[13:52] <Pesky> They're cool tools
[13:52] <quanticle> And is there an old forest?
[13:52] <Pesky> Southern England, in Hampshire
[13:52] <Qcoder00> Pesky: You dont read  20's Detective fisction by any chance?
[13:52] <Pesky> Well, mostly in Hampshire
[13:52] <Qcoder00> *fiction
[13:52] <Pesky> My grandfather wrote pre-war detective fiction

[13:54] <Qcoder00> Hmm
[13:54] <quanticle> Qcoder00: The new forest was created? As in planted?

�03[14:16] * [[God]] is now known as Barras
[14:16] <Pesky> When I can sit at the keyboard for long enough at a time, I;ll help out with source-hunting on that article
[14:16] <Moonriddengirl> Thanks. :D I haven't had much time for volunteering today, because i can't stop working. :/ I'm trying to find a CSS designer for the legal team.
[14:17] <Pesky> Wouldn't surprise me if it was 75% copyvio
[14:17] <Pesky> My back is being such a bar-steward that I have to keep going to lie down
[14:17] <Moonriddengirl> Hard to say. I have spot-checked all through and found no duplication anywhere except mirrors. It's possible that the guy is really into original research. :)
[14:18] <matthewrbowker> Or he doesn't know how to source.
[14:18] <Pesky> The skeletons bit was a straight lift, though ...
�06[14:18] * matthewrbowker has no clue what everyone is talking about :P
[14:18] <Moonriddengirl> Yes, but he did at least say it was drawn from a source.
[14:18] <Moonriddengirl> Matthewrbowker, it's a pretty strange article--I'll link you.
[14:18] <Pesky> Have you done Google books and Scholar (obviously you have ...)
[14:18] <Moonriddengirl> Here you go, Matthew: <,_Gloucestershire>
[14:19] <Pesky> matthewrbowker:  copyvio dating back toi 2006 :P
[14:19] <Pesky> Lervely!
[14:19] <Moonriddengirl> I have, yes. I only spot-checked because I was low on time, but I didn't come up with anything.
[14:19] <Pesky> I found it when the skeletons section was split out and appeared in NPP
[14:19] <Pesky> Fing is … I actually half-way recognise some of the wording.  Can;t t hink for the life of me where from.
[14:20] <Pesky> It will probably come to me at 3 am.
[14:20] <Pesky> I used to have friends who  lived there.
[14:21] <matthewrbowker> Holy cow!  That's very strange.  All that and three sources ...
[14:21] <Pesky> I *recognise* … bits … of it
[14:22] <Moonriddengirl> Yeah, if you look through edit by edit, the primary contributor actually used to embed conversation. Like he'd offer to check the schedule of something if people called him.
[14:23] <Pesky> In the highwaymen section, fair 'nuff, a load of it is quotes from PD materail.  But even the bits in between them - I;m sure I;ve seen before
[14:26] <Pesky> "When the alarm was given, out would come the Fire Engine and fire men Canon Trotman in his shirt sleeves and all the inhabitants of Marshfield following"  I KNOW I;ve seen that before
[14:27] <Moonriddengirl> All righty; having failed to find a designer, I guess I need to go and see if I can fake being a designer.
[14:27] <Pesky> Yay, go girl!  Fake it till you make it
�08[14:27] <diggyhole> faking orgasms?
