Talk:RationalWikiWiki:Editing your own article

From Rationalwikiwki

What if you edit your page with a NPOV? Does that count? --Ryan 01:09, 3 March 2008 (EST)

What about correcting information? (Eg, my regaining crat, also, the name/age template thing.) Pinto's5150 01:15, 3 March 2008 (EST)
In all cases if it is your own article page you should put comments on the talk page. Think of it as a mirror image of your user page on RationalWiki. There you can put all the good stuff you like about you and only you can edit it. (You can also make a user page here or on CP were only you can say whatever good stuff you like about yourself.) Here, however, the only page you can't edit is the article page about yourself. You can whine on the talk page, you can whinge on your user page, but you shouldn't edit your article page. --User:FalseFlagFlag Me 13:48, 3 March 2008 (EST)
Seems easy enough, really. If you have "facts" to add, other editors will gladly gobble them up and poop them out on the article page, I'm sure. Is there anyway to add banners of some sort to remind us of this (and those who haven't picked up on the rule, especially)? Like, "If you actually are {{<s>luser</s>PAGENAME}} at RatWiki, please edit only the talk page. Thank you." And link it to this article. humanbe in 21:25, 3 March 2008 (EST)
I don't see why we shouldn't be able to edit our own article, even when we are just adding general information. To the point: I don't see a reason for me to comply with this rule. --Ryan 01:25, 7 March 2008 (EST)
Because that is the rule, here? Seems simple to me. If someone puts crap on the human article I don't like, I have to whinge on the talk page to get it removed. Seems fair, because otherwise I would turn the page into an oral sex delivering machine for myself. Surely you understand the concept behind the rule? Facts, if noted on talk pages, will be corrected as rapidly as possible by other editors, I'm sure. humanbe in 01:35, 7 March 2008 (EST)
As I did after Tmtoulouse complained on his article's talk page. --Hans Johnson I'll get my hans on it 03:12, 7 March 2008 (EST)

Proposed new section

To be placed under new section "Exceptions":

If a RationalWikian has no article here, and not enough intelligence has been gathered on them to make an entry, an administrator may extend a special invitation to them on their RationalWiki talk page. The invitee has license to establish their own article, with the understanding that once the article is established, it will will be ruthlessly edited afterwards and the rule will come back in effect.

Thoughts? --Hans Johnson I'll get my hans on it 14:31, 7 March 2008 (EST)

Mmmmm. Maybe. T'would make life easier I suppose. I suppose it could be fun to simply insert "does not" or "can't" before every verb after they've written it. So, OK.--User:FalseFlagFlag Me 15:58, 7 March 2008 (EST)
Alright, then. I will add it to article. Hans Johnson I'll get my hans on it 13:30, 11 March 2008 (EST)


Uh-oh. Sterile 17:45, 12 March 2008 (EST)

Indeed. I saw your edit to your page. We'll let it pass; there was nothing for you to whitewash, anyways. ;-) Hans Johnson I'll get my hans on it 17:59, 12 March 2008 (EST)
