this[edit]

Hmm. Has anyone been caught? -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 19:07, 9 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)

They thought they caught the cat, but it turned out to be a swarm of flying pink mice. Or whatever you call a group of those things. Flying pink mice are very versatile, but also very dangerous. Beware. -− Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 22:07, 15 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)
Against my better judgement, I went ahead and restarted the Converter, whereby to forcibly convert our enemies to the Faith of the Rekaizumptive.

Snowflake will no longer smell like a dog. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png 12:47, 17 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)

Eupocalith[edit]

I hate bothering you with this again, but Eupocalith can't get is account to work because it is now deactivated. Could you look into when you get the time or get one of the vamps to check it out? @Marzipan (talk) 06:50, 9 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)

Please keep bothering me with it. Until we get in a proper fix, it's the only way to get folks what they need. So thank you. I'll take care of it as soon as I sober up. -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 18:47, 9 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)
Again, I'm sorry, but Colonel Sanders is having the same issue. Thanks in advance for looking into it. You have always been such a big help to this site. @Marzipan (talk) 01:24, 14 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)
Okay, so apparently the damn WMF imbeciles REMOVED all the possible info text around the login form and that's why we're suddenly having this problem. This included the message that told users that this might happen and what to do about it. I'ma try to get that fixed. In the meantime, could you tell people they need to recreate their accounts if they have problems? Still let me know, please, but if they haven't made a new account, there is absolutely nothing I can do as is. -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 16:52, 15 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)
Sure, I'll let them know if the problem comes up. @Marzipan (talk) 23:22, 15 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)
Excuse my butting in, but do you have any idea why it's possible to recreate accounts under the correct name on Uncyclopedia but not here? If anything, it should be the other way round, since Uncyclopedia, unlike Illogicopedia, still has access to the relevant user tables, so on Uncyclopedia there is no excuse to allow something like, say, this to happen. (The account was created by Cat the Colourful. Now, obviously Spike will never log into that wiki at the rate things are going, but you get the point--it's just an example.) -− Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 21:58, 15 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)
Account creation of that sort is blocked on uncyclopedia because users can import their accounts; that some got past it was due to a bug. On the other hand, importing is no longer possible here, so accounts need to be recreated. Unfortunately the directions telling users to do so were removed in mw 1.23, so we've had some trouble there, too. -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 22:49, 15 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)

My account[edit]

Hey Athyria, I've noticed that ever since the server move, a lot of people have lost access to their accounts. I'm no exception, unfortunately. My username is User:Mortalmm000 and I think I've forgotten my password, not that it matters. Complaining to you seems to have worked for other users so hopefully it'll also work for me. 120.56.171.123 14:19, 17 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, the account data was lost - a bit unfortunate since we tried so hard to actually preserve it this time, but when the host won't cooperate, there's not much you can do. Anyway, please go to Special:CreateAccount and try to recreate your account (with the same name). If the same name doesn't work, just use something slightly different; either way let me know when you've done that and I'll then be able to reassign all your edits, any permissions you might have had, and the proper name if needed. -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 17:15, 17 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)
Well, I've recreated my account, but yeah, couldn't do it with the original name. Anyways, you'll know which one it is by the sig, so do whatever you want with it. Mortalmm0rpg (talk) 19:32, 17 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)
Agh, that's unfortunate, but good to know. Thanks.
Anyway, I've renamed your account back the way it was supposed to be and reassigned all the edits and stuff. You should now be able to log in as Mortalmm000 again. -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 20:11, 17 Serpeniver 2014 (UTC)

Pure, unadulterated praise of you[edit]

Wow I just now read your Nightmare article and re-read the Ariss pages. Those are really deep stuff...I cant find words for description. Those pages are actually so dreamlike and surreal. Dark yet somehow comforting in the knowledge that this is what we really are deep down. That idea of a dreaming machine (Ariss) attached to some unknown secret government test subject's brain and creating dreams and nightmares...that idea of a Thing That Cannot Be greeting the silent dreamer upon truly Waking...that's just deep beyond words, deeper than even conscious thoughts.

I'm not being sarcastic or illogical this time...you are an utter, extreme genius to have been able to write this.

Lord Assbutt the Fourth |Talk to meh|BOINC! 11:40, 6 Jeremy 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, man. Those two ain't all me, though. Ellemerr wrote most of the Nightmare one, as the dreamer that she is, and the Ariss was built up of pieces of a bunch of things several folks wrote. But perhaps that's how the best things come about - people collaborate, build off each other, make new and amazing things not by trying to keep everyone out, but by throwing what they've got out into the world for everyone else to use, too. -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 23:52, 6 Jeremy 2015 (UTC)
On second thoughts you also seem a kinda scary guy. I found out your site of artwork thru searching for Ellemer and they are, to put it in a word, coldly alien...deep and darkly beautiful but alien. This is scary. Woah.

Aww. Maybe they need an acclimation. Ordered any office chairs lately? Wikia ain't treating me anyhow.

User talk:Athyria
Could you make plainlinks actually plain? So sourcecode a page with a link and then add the code to MediaWiki:vector.css with the selector .plainlinks a. think u can do it? Iamawesome  T | C | U  18:11, 14 Aym 2015 (UTC)
OK, becuz j00 are lazy then heres the code for vector skin:
.plainlinks a {
    text-decoration: none;
    color: #0645ad;
    background: none
}
.plainlinks a:visited {
    color: #0b0080
}
.plainlinks a:active {
    color: #faa700
}
.plainlinks a:hover,a:focus {
    text-decoration: underline
}
I use vector but when I can then I'll check it for monobook too, cuz noone uses modern/cologneblue anymoar. Iamawesome  T | C | U  13:53, 15 Aym 2015 (UTC)
Ello? Can j00 hear me? monobook's link color scheme is the same of vector's. Therefore you can coopy it straight into MediaWiki:common.css. JUST DEW IT!!!! Iamawesome  T | C | U  18:46, 16 Aym 2015 (UTC)
I hear you. It's just we rarely get users wanting us to change something to the skins. It is not exactly a problem that gets brought up. Also, I'm not exactly the most skilled tech guy at this site. Athyria usually handles the codes and whatnot. —Marzipan (talk) 05:30, 17 Aym 2015 (UTC)
   
User talk:Athyria

Aaagh, what, this seriously confused me. Quit just quoting things and dumping the entire thing here! I mean, it makes sense in theory, but I keep looking at the timestamps and thinking the server's exploding before finally realising what's going on.

Anyway, as for the topic itself, the css that would accurately do as described would probably be as follows, placed in the relevant css pages:

/* Vector */
.mw-body .plainlinks a.external {
        color: #0645AD;
}
.mw-body .plainlinks a.external:visited {
        color: #0B0080;
}
 
/* MonoBook */
#bodyContent .plainlinks a.external {
        color: #5A3696;
}
#bodyContent .plainlinks a.external:visited {
        color: #002BB8;
}

But do we really want to do that? The 'plain' here seems to be referring to the decoration being removed; just because we don't want the decor for whatever reason doesn't mean we don't want people to still be able to tell it's not an ordinary link. If we want to stealth the links for whatever reason, too, shouldn't that perhaps have a different class? -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 06:13, 18 Aym 2015 (UTC)

Hm.. maybe... yeah lets just make a 'ninjalinks' class so we can I'll batch up some CSS to make all external links that point to http://en.illogicopedia.org/(whatever) look internal. Iamawesome  T | C | U  13:15, 18 Aym 2015 (UTC)
Here.
a.external[href^="http://en.illogicopedia.org"] {
    /* code */
}

Knee jerk reaction to having seen your sig a little while ago[edit]

So, I miss you. Not as much as I'd miss my wife, were she you, and I I. Then I never would never have met her IRL, nor she, I. After 31 years of wedded bliss, which somehow wouldn't have happened until maybe 2008, I'd miss her something fierce. Not to in any way detract from the qualitative and quantitative attributes of how much I've missed you, of course. I think of you fondly, as I think of a friend I lost touch with long ago. She, in some ways similar to you, was a pistol. I think that means like, a live wire, or a crack up or something.

Too bad I'm too gimped up for Boston ComiCon this year. Of course, I'd only go if they were doing the Aqua Teen thing. I'm not really interested in comics.

So, I've begun to cook Asian again. It's a thing I used to do, a phase that my family would endure. Actually, they've always said they liked my Asian inspired cooking, and it does get better every time I go through the phase. This time, though, it's serious. I cooked a dish which I thought was delicious. First time I not only liked it, but enjoyed it immensely. Been experimenting a little, using fresh ingredients... got three solid fans... things are happening... in my elbows, in my amygdala, my pinkie fingers... no flatulence involved, thank the gods... no porn either.

So, bring chairs and hard ciders, and I'll show up. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 05:20, 3 Jumbly 2015 (UTC)

It's like old home week for weirdos... I'm loving it. Not McDonald's, certainly. Not after my last bout of food poisoning at Burger King. Cheap food indeed. All that crap is right out for me. I'm on a cooking thing lately, anyway. A fascination with Southeast Asian foods, as I like them. The restaurant I used to favor claimed a cooking style similar to good quality outdoor stalls you'd find in the bigger cities in that part of the world. I made a pretty good nam prik aung, sort of Thai style. I was pretty happy with it, as was my wife who loves this food as much. Last dish, which was my first on this round of renewed interest in cooking and eating, was a nice Hoisin pork sir fry affair. It took me three tries to perfect it. Gonna make that again soon.

I just read your article: Madness.[edit]

I absolutely love the way you transcended the concept of madness that really hits that note of insanity in such a deliberately worded manner. I read it again and again, comparing this to a philosophical work of sorts. I know I sound like I reviewing a book or essay, but the way madness was worded and structured after you came in and made it... It was brilliant. I don't think my philosophy teacher could create something like that for the sake of illogic and insanity. The macabre, the darkness, the chilling-ness...

First off, do you have any idea as to what in God's green earth this piece of code is supposed to do? The most I know is that it's Unicode because of the "string.fromCharCode.apply" part, but other than that, it looks like coherent nonsense.

I'm actually fearful of what it would be. I found it here whilst browsing the internets, and now that I think about, the fact that this piece of code has is on its own webpage seems to make it a bit shady.

Person way smarter than I am has answers:

[02:30:03] <wctaiwan> so it's some kind of coding challenge thing
[02:30:15] <wctaiwan> obfuscated, obviously
[02:30:43] <wctaiwan> String.fromCharCode.apply(null, ('657478737846826968796745837447475880848472'.match(/.{1,2}/g))) is equivalent to String.fromCharCode('657478737846826968796745837447475880848472'.match(/.{1,2}/g))
[02:31:05] <wctaiwan> '657478737846826968796745837447475880848472'.match(/.{1,2}/g) is a regex thing that returns an array of numbers that map to ASCII character codes
[02:31:17] <wctaiwan> which the function then turns into 'AJNIN.REDOC-SJ//:PTTH'
[02:31:33] <wctaiwan> the rest is fairly trivial. Do a bunch of string ops to decode the URL.

I was legitimately hoping that this code would have had far more meaning to it than a stupid gimmick for hiring JavaScript people at a content marketing company.
I'm really, really sorry for wasting your time (if I did, that is). I really thought the code would bear more meaning to it than it actually does. I guess my budding interest for coding got the best of me (even though I don't know the first thing about JS except recognizing its structure).
Erm, one more thing: Seppy has got me on a edge a bit. S/he said that s/he'll "round up the illuminati to pick a suitable number of victims for the hat" after (please don't judge me) I requested to become admin. I provided a rather lengthy and logical rationale as to why I should be admin (and it's definitely not to be cool and above regular users; go here to see my true (albeit benevolent) intentions of adminship), but so far there hasn't been any sign of an attempt to do so.
Later on, Hindleyite told me to report to his office immediately. He said he liked my spunk, whatever the hell that means.

Dude, learn code. js might be a good place to start just because there is such a huge market for it, but do you know any projects you'd like to hack at/contribute to? If so, clone their code and try to do stuff to it! They might be able to help you, too. Like mw could always use more stuff. I dunno how old you are or stuff, but there's also official-like programs for people to get money and mentorship...
And, er, if you do stuff and aren't apt to ruin anything, adminship is a reasonable request, especially as it's needed anyhow. But they'll sort it out. Just let them. -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 23:55, 12 Arply 2016 (UTC)
Could it be an online summer job of sorts once I become better at HTML and CSS before I can move on to JavaScript? I mean, I'm 15, so I'm not free to do whatever I want (especially on the internet of all places). It's just like when I realized there's summer jobs at Amoeba Music in Hollywood but I have to be 18+ and very very well-rounded in music. VERY well-rounded. At that moment my dreams of being surrounded by millions of CDs, LPs, movies, books, graphic novels, music posters, rare musical items, band shirts, occasional live venues, and amazing people were all crushed and thrown into oblivion. Working for MediaWiki, however, sounds fantastic.
I have been doing a ton of HTML and CSS copypasta here in Illogicopedia. I also mess around with it, learning basic inputs in the process, but probably not the full extent of it, since the HTML of the WikiSphere is a slightly more simplified version than the original HTML developed for making basic websites (which I would use little of; I'd use Ruby instead if I knew it).
Due to your encouragement, I've returned to Codecademy for my HTML classes.

Yay! And, well, there's google code in sometimes, which is for high school students-ish. Once you hit university you could do a GSoC project. I dunno about jobs, though. Never was any good at that stuff. You could get more well-rounded if you try with anything, potentially.
In general for mw this category is full of pages that should be good for getting you started: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Category:New_contributors Working with existing code should be a good way to learn, too, since you can both copy&paste and also just see what other people did already.

Having had a one-celled Hammond organism attached to my uvula, I can say with experience and confidence that you ought to have one installed for yourself. It would free up one of your arms to manage corned beef hashing, and that would please Frunobulax. Please reply within three weeks in order to ensure your eligibility for the booby prize, which is unrelated to breasts or birds. Embrace your inner crocodile and live the dream while dreaming.

All I can really say for sure is that without a proper installation of goats, no amount of other organisms can resolve the underlying shrubbery problem. Is it a booby trap or a booby moose? 63.228.68.41 15:34, 30 Arply 2016 (UTC)
It it, in fact, Moose Boobies. Underlying shrubbery aside, perhaps one or more of these natural wonders of natural engineering may become the base of an article... in fact, yes, it will. 50.153.134.99 23:27, 30 Arply 2016 (UTC)
I fed the shrubbery coffee. I sort of apologise, but only sort of. If it gets too big we can install a goat shrine, I suppose?

My dad was first generation French-Canadian, so he didn't learn to read English until he was 18 when he joined the Air Force. He'd invented or borrowed words over the years, and for laughs, would imitate the priests doing the old-fashioned Latin mass, except instead of Latin, it was gibberish... albeit gibberish some people mistook for a real language. I can't do it justice, but suffice it to say it was hilarious. One of his favorite non-words was "strogatz". Another thing he'd say when he'd warn you not to strain yourself picking something up was, "don't pull your guts". Between my brother and I, it became "gatz". Yesterday I texted my brother, saying I'd pulled my guts hunting mastodon. Today we discussed what to do with the hide. We agreed it would make a great covering for Japanese tatami mats for flooring.
So he kept the non-words and reused them consistently? That takes skill. Did he have stories? Would he tell them half in gibberish for effect? Why mastodon in particular? You bring those up a lot. -A
Anyway, a guitarist named Pat Metheny did an album called, "As falls Witchita, so falls Witchita Falls"... not my favorite, but definitely a top ten album name IMHO. That's where the title for this section came from; an amalgamation of my dad's "wisdom" and that title. I am in the market for a new computer, an Apple, since I can do it. I've been using an ancient Macbook, which is to say, I haven't been online much because it's unbelievably slow. After I get my new one, I will probably hang out on IRC, since it will be new and fast. I've put "stalk Athyria" on my to do list. You have been warned.
Yay, new computers! I was looking at apples, but they didn't meet my needs either. But what I have works. Working is really useful. Not slow too. Name it something wise. -A
I miss our weirdness, actually. My wife misses me talking about it too. I've been forced to make a new friend in meat space out of desparation. Fortunately, she's a weirdo too. But you, my dear, have a special place in my heart, and the only other thing which could possibly fill it would be a Jaguar coupe... possibly a Godin synth guitar. In either case, I simply won't spend the money even if I could. I guess that would make you a luxury item.
Weirdness is a luxury item. It's also, sometimes, a necessary one. But we need luxury in our lives. It's how we stay sane. I recommend the guitar, if it comes to it. Less likely to get you killed. Less likely to depreciate in value. Though I have heard nice things about jaguars from people who really pronounce the 'u'... -A
Another thing my dad would say, meaning to pour paint through a paper filter with a screen when it's been opened before to get the particles out... he'd say, "scream the paint". So my brother would bend over the paint can and yell at it. When he was really pissed off at a guy, he'd call him a "cot sucker", to which I added "feather belching". See you soon, hopefully.

A major issue[edit]

An anonymous vandal has created an article that is literally 627,200 bytes in size and consists solely of the word "poot." Because it is of an immense size, it made my laptop crash when trying to QD it and slowed down its speed upon restarting.

The article is titled (DO NOT CLICK) Poot lavato and it is by far the absolute worst piece of vandalism i have ever seen.

Is there anything you can do (or, do you have technology fast and powerful enough) to 1.) open up the article and 2.) get that piece of cancer out of Illogicopedia once and for all? It would be greatly appreciated and save other users from having their computers crash. Addiotionally, this is the IP address of the vandal I mentioned: 168.169.220.16. Please ban him/her INDEFINITELY because we absolutely cannot risk having this IP return again... the admins have been too lenient in banning lately. Please do this ASAP. 2+2=5 SPEAK TO ME, ILLOGIAN!

I'm in the US. In the future, I suggest not flipping out and repeatedly pinging people over the course of a minute. One ping should do; either we're there or we aren't, but we'll see it when we are. Consider if you were an admin, how you would feel if such a request and anger were directed at you.

Hello again, love. Personal wiki, eh? May I see it? The older granddaughter moved out, and we're still lacking for space. Considering an addition in back. Sister Zim_ulatrix almost died from sudden onset of diabetes a couple of months ago, but is doing great now that she uses insulin. That was nuts. I've been feeling somewhat poorly myself, but we have a new doctor, and therefore, hope. Our last one, I swear, was trying to kill us. He had Sis on 3 blood pressure medications for no reason, so now it's higher than it used to be. So, money for not working? Email me and tell me how! Cheers.

Personal wiki: It's full of bad writing, miscellaneous crap, and game stuff. Also it's sort of my portfolio/resume once you account for the fact that I don't have a real portfolio/resume (which is probably my main problem in the getting a job department).
Don't you dare die, dammit! You're too crazy to die! Also, er, wow. Sounds a bit like my dad's dentist, frankly, although she's just a dentist. I don't know why he goes to her.
The plan is simple: I don't get a job, I just get funding to keep doing what I would have been doing anyway, with the added promise, because I now have funding to do it, that I will now actually reliably do it instead of randomly wandering off for a year in the middle of it. Like what happened last year. I'm trying to redo the interface for all of Wikimedia, see. So if the Wikimedia Foundation sees the value in this work and agrees to fund it (I wrote up a big arse grant proposal formally asking for funding and everything), it will totally benefit them. Maybe. Of course I may also just be trying to do this out of pure spite. Reports vary. I don't even remember anymore. I did wander off for a year in the middle of it already, after all. -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 21:53, 10 Arply 2017 (UTC)
