00:42.50Zeallo all
00:43.30ZealKirkburn|afk, cool @ bbc stuff. If the world, or evne our own goverment was run like bbc news is, the world would be a much better place imo.
00:43.51Zealthose warcraft merchandise from jinx all look utter shite imo..
00:47.49Zealscript seems to have improved a bit
00:47.52bleetahSBS News Australia craps all over any BBC News service I've seen
00:48.03Zealin what way?
00:49.12bleetahstyle, content, presentation. the lot, really. their charter is to serve the diverse cultures in the aussie community, so they actively go out of their way to find stories from around the worlds' foreign language services, etc.
00:49.32bleetahit was the one thing I truly missed when I was overseas
00:52.17bleetahof course, being such a small broadcaster they don't have as much broadcast time as the BBC, but news and current affairs should be about the quality of content, not the amount.
00:52.50bleetahafter 6 months around hotel rooms, I couldn't really tell much of a difference in production between BBC News 24 and CNN.. apart from the accents
00:53.06Zealwell it's the quality, and methods implace to improve the quality that i praise BBC for.
00:53.18ZealCNN is awful
00:53.20bleetahand the slightly more restarined British way of doing things.. buch largely it was just the same guff repeated ad infinitum
00:54.24Zealwith CNN, there's no such thing as world news.. it's laughable. and all the reports they do are highly biased and not properly researched.
00:54.53Zealthat goes for any large american news network.
00:55.24bleetahthe BBC are also known for not properly researching stuff, but I do agree their base standards are higher
00:55.32ZealBBC, why not always doing the best of jobs, they do try to remain unbiased, and do report on mostly world news.
00:55.42Zeal*while not
00:56.03bleetahit's no suprise that US networks are crap ;)
00:56.43Zealbut where i think BBC does things right, is they have the system in place, or criticizwe themselves, let people criticize them, and actually listen to their viewers as to ways of improving.
00:56.59Zeal*to criticize themselves
00:58.51Zeali like that they do have a larger, general public board that decides what stories make it to air, what stories should be reported on, what stories should be the headliners.
00:58.59bleetahthat ties back to the difference between public and commercial broadcasting 'how far can we go before we piss off our advertisers' vs 'how far can we go before we piss off our viewers'. Whilst the former has a correlation involving the latter, they're two distinct matters, really
00:59.27bleetah*public -> the UK/Au sense, provided out of tax dollars, not 'public' -> homebrew
00:59.31ZealBBC doesn't have to worry about advertising :)
00:59.49bleetahwell, I'm sure they advertise their own DVDs, books, and the like, just like the ABC
00:59.55bleetah*ABC Australia
00:59.56Zealthat is a good point i didn't consider.
01:00.05Zealyeah, they do.
01:00.15bleetahwhich then leads to interesting scenarios like recently happened here because the ABC said such and such's book wouldn't be commercially viable
01:00.28Zealbut the nice thing about that, is it's contextual advertising, it is always relevent to what you're watching.
01:00.48bleetahthat the book was about one of australia's most controversial radio broadcasters who has direct telephone line to the PM, etc., and had hidden his private life a lot yet abused others and outed them...
01:01.13bleetahso, anyways, the ABC said 'not commercial', so they dropped the book. ANother publisher picked it up, and it was on the best-seller list at christmas time
01:01.29bleetahthere are lingering arguments that the decision to drop the book was political, and not commercial
01:02.43bleetah(fwiw, the journo who wrote the book is probably the most respected journo for investigating corruption and the like in the country, so it wasn't just written by a 'no-one')
01:03.32bleetahfor what it's worth
01:03.42Zealand yeah, bad move imo
01:04.19bleetahit's a good example of how even in public broadcasting journalism, things can get as ugly as commercial
01:05.50Zealanyways, while i think organizations should listen to viewers, i don't thin kthey should ever bow to user damands. most people are stupid and biased, should never bow to preasure from such people just to please them, when it goes against basic neutrality concepts your organization should be following. kinda why i'm pissed off about the mohamad cartoon stuff.
01:06.09Zealbritain recently showed how stupid most of us are, with the big brother racisim claims
01:08.00bleetahI hate to say it, but the English, to me at least when I was working in Europe, did appear to be the most racist bunch of folks I'd ever stumbled across. Sure, there were lots of real nice english people, but when i struck the racists, they were incredibly racist
01:08.31bleetahwas working in Marseille around 2000, or so... these english workers for Airbus staying in the hotel I was at, were defending the english fan's right to riot
01:08.50*** join/#wowwiki Laraul (
01:08.56bleetahwhat got me was they were working for a foreign firm... :/
01:09.37bleetahbut, as I say, I know a lot of english aren't like that... just I think the BB exposed what a lot of english people fear, that there is still a real deep seated racism going on over there, that like here in Aus, we don't really discuss
01:09.48Zealignorance breeds racist comments, but they must be taken into context. racist comments or insults should never be a criminal offense however, merely a moral one. everything should be open to crticism and satire, be it religion, race or political figures.
01:10.36bleetahdepends whether such comments incite people to commit illegal acts
01:10.57Zeali don't beleive in incite being criminal
01:11.01BarbanusWhat are you guys talking about? :P
01:11.08bleetahBarbanus: stuff :P
01:11.19Zealpeople will interpret and act on what they want. they have themselves to blame.
01:11.19BarbanusYou talking about the Canadian law?
01:11.36bleetahzeal: personally, I don't. but there's a lot of real stupid out there who'd believe the moon was made of green cheese if you told them
01:11.46Zealwe were talking about news channels, not it;s about racism and such :p
01:12.08bleetahand would then try and find a way to get themselves to the moon to try and sell the stuff
01:12.10Zealaye bleetah. i think those people should be punished, not the instigator.
01:12.28Zealeveryone is accountable for their own actions
01:13.47Zealif someone wants to preach terrorism, i can think they're a dick, i can criticize them, but i don't think they should be put in jail for it. the fact they are more than likely involved in terrorist acts and organization of them however is likely anyways.
01:14.06BarbanusZeal, ahh, I was just refering to the canadian law that states "It is now illegal to publicly incite hatred against people based on their colour, race, religion, ethnic origin, and sexual orientation."
01:14.18Barbanuswhich is basically what you are talking about :)
01:14.24Zealyeah, we've got that law here too now : /
01:14.39Zealonly one person been charged with it so far
01:15.20BarbanusI personally think its a good thing
01:15.33bleetahso, basically what you're saying, is that it was right for the Nazi's to incite Germans to do what they did during WW2, and it was the actions of the lower ranks who were at fault, and absolve the upper command?
01:15.39Zealoh no, a person at a public political event stood up and criticized the politician and incited terrorism _
01:15.55Zealno, because they organized
01:16.01MontaggI only like the Nazi's because they produced Roman Polanski.
01:16.08Zealtaking a action, and not taking an action is the difference.
01:16.38Barbanuswell in canadian law .. you cant be convicted if the statements are true
01:16.59bleetahI kinda appreciated the nazis for giving us a decent magnetic recording medium
01:17.02Zealbasically, people can beleive wtf they want, but until they do something that harms another, i don't think they should be punished for those beliefs.
01:17.30Zealwell what the guy said was true, but a biased point of view on it.
01:18.13bleetahif I do something that directly causes someone else to cause harm to another, I'm innocent?
01:18.31KarrionZeal: can't the very act of saying something be hurtful, though?
01:19.20Zealimo no. if you can't take criticism or a joke, even if it's intent was to harm, i don't feel that's something you should be punished for.
01:19.39Zealif they want to smack you in the face for saying it, fair enough :P
01:19.58bleetahif I say to Karrion: 'This is how you get the cash together to go meet zeal and kill him', and Karrion says 'ooh, I like that idea, never thought of that before', I'm not at all responsible?
01:20.44Zealbleetah, you can never directly control someones actions, their actions are their own, so no. if you do something to aid in their actions, then yes.
01:21.04Zealno, you're not bleetah :p
01:21.15bleetahI think you should really read 'Manufacturing Consent' ;)
01:21.30*** join/#wowwiki dok3Dal (
01:21.32bleetahit's pretty dang easy to get people to do stuff they wouldn't normally do
01:21.33Zealactually, i take that back you are
01:21.46Zealyou gave him the plans to kill me :p
01:21.50bleetahtake a look at the fake prisoner experiment done in the US by those psychologists
01:22.08bleetahturned normal well adjusted people into.. well.. not much better than animals in under what was it? 14 days?
01:22.13Zealunless it;s an article online bleetah, i won;t be reading it.
01:22.35bleetahso, cut out all written word pre, what, 1980?
01:23.08Zealwell mind control isn't well research field bleetah, that would have to be case by case verdict until it is.
01:23.29Zeal*and brain washing
01:23.35bleetahwhich is why there are now laws regarding incitement. each one would have to be tested on it's merits
01:23.54bleetahwhereas before, without the laws, there was either no test or a blank charge of .. something elswe
01:24.00Zealnah, i don't see why people should be put into that process for nothing
01:24.07Karrionfair critisism or joke, sure... but what about pure racism? If I got up in public and started ranting about, say, blacks, or protestants, or wiki authors, it's freedom of speech; but if i then go slightly further and start saying that I think they should... be killed, or have their possessions confiscated, or whatever, that would cause those people real fear, which is a direct harm to their quality of life
01:24.08Zealit should be handled by existing laws
01:24.49Karrionit's a fine line, certainly
01:24.59Zealyou're charging inoccents under the name of something that is inoccent in order to charge them under an existing offense.
01:25.07Zealbackwards tbh and over zealous.
01:25.47bleetahhalf the problem is we have way more powerful tools of communications at our hands than even 15 years ago. the other half of the problem is blinkered lawmakers out to try and get anyone under the new laws (witness that Canadian guy who recently got found to not be a terrorist, etc.)
01:26.14ZealKarrion, if someone wants to live in fear of terrorism, that's their fault.
01:26.29Zeali'm zealous, not overly so ;)
01:27.09KarrionI kind of agree and kind of disagree with that
01:27.24Karrion(with "if someone wants to live in fear of terrorism, that's their fault" ;-)
01:27.43Zealsimply reporting said person, and letting the police check if they have been involved or plan to be involved in killing you or w/e is the proper coarse of action.
01:28.25bleetahwhilst I'd agree that a multple rape and torture victim may have issues dealing with men who aren't rapist or torturers, to solely place their mistrust of males at their own feet and not at that of the rapists and torturers, is illogical. if the person hadn't been raped in the first place.... :/
01:28.45KarrionIt's certainly possible to cause fear in another person, fear is not a rational things, it's an autonomic response
01:28.53bleetahand on that note, I gtg buy clothes for a wedding this weekend.. ttfn
01:29.02Zeali know, but i don't think someone should be punished for it.
01:29.14Zealttyl bleetah
01:29.23Karrionlater bleetah
01:29.44*** join/#wowwiki dok3Dal (
01:30.06Karrionif they're going out of their way to cause fear, I think they should be punished
01:30.18Karrionhell, that's what the original meaning of terrorism was
01:30.24Karrionbut on a smaller scale it
01:30.35Zealright now, i'm not scared of bleetah or you coming to kill me, but i could easily report a death threat so police could keep an eye on it and check if it was legitimate if i was so inclined ;)
01:30.42Karrion's also why death threats are illegal even if you don't carry though on it
01:31.00Zealyeah i don't think death threats should be illegal
01:31.12Zealmajority of them are idle anyways
01:31.24Barbanus... heh, I totally disagree with you
01:32.23Karrionyeah my point is that even on their own, without followthrough, they cause harm to the person threatened, to whit, their mental state
01:32.58Zeali would consider that a weak person to allow it effect them so severly
01:33.04BarbanusKarrion, agreed.
01:33.29Karrionyou've obviously never been in that kind of situation, then
01:33.48Zealdeath threat, not really. bullying perhaps.
01:34.05BarbanusZeal, if a 6'4" 220lb man approached a 100 lb lady in a subway, and said "I'm going to kill you" ... and you were that lady.... what would you do.
01:34.15Zealcall the police?
01:34.16BarbanusLaws are there to protect from extremes.
01:34.27BarbanusAnd that man should not be arrested?
01:34.35BarbanusI certainly think he should be
01:34.59BarbanusThe woman would be scared shitless ... especially if nothing was done because its "not illegal"
01:35.14Zealno, they should check up on the mans record and as precaution, a temporary restriction on his contact with her if suspected.
01:35.48Zealie, make him wait for the next train or something
01:35.56Zealand alert police at the destination.
01:39.09Zealif it helps, eventually, that guy's record would build up, to a point where he would become detained, and then for longer nad longer periods of time for each time.
01:40.04Zealnot because of what he did was wrong, but because it is the only way to deal with him. *thinks of angry ogre again*
01:40.27Barbanusrecord? its not illegal.
01:40.49Zealdoesn't have to be illegal to go on a record.
01:41.39KarrionI totally disagree that what he did (hypothetically) was not wrong
01:42.02KarrionI'm not saying he should go to jail for just that, but it's still wrong
01:43.20Zealtheres morally wrong, and criminally wrong
01:43.26Zealthe former, sure.
01:43.30Zealbut not the latter
01:43.57Zealbbc news :P
01:45.31Zealtheres only a few basic criminal things imo. murder, and theft.. that's about it.
01:45.40Karrionok, then I put it to you that something crosses the line into criminally wrong when it occasions harm, be that harm material, physical or mental/psychological
01:45.58Karrionit seems to be the psychological part we disagree about
01:46.17Zealyeah, i think the mental harm is not the sole fault of the perpetrator, therefore should not be criminal
01:46.39Karrionsee, I don't think "sole" fault is required
01:46.45Zeali do
01:47.38Zealthe severity of the harm can change based on the weaknesses of the victim, in no direct correlation to what the perpetrator did.
01:47.39Karrionso, if you left your door unlocked one day, and came home to find your TV missing, the theft wouldn't be criminal because you contributed a small part of the fault?
01:48.10Karrionlaw exists to protect the weak, as well as the strong
01:48.35Karrionin fact it could be argued that it _only_ exists to protect the weak, because the strong can take care of themselves
01:48.50BarbanusKarrion, it does
01:49.00BarbanusLaws are there to protect the extreme cases.
01:49.08Zealif you can't determine the severity of the action because of the victim, then it can't be an offense.
01:49.49Zealthough really, it can be determined with your theft analogy
01:49.53Zealso it can be.
01:50.14Zealso what i said was wrong >_>
01:50.51Karriongenerally it's the intent of the perpetrator that matters, not the effect on the victim
01:51.28Barbanusits also the "potential effect"
01:51.41Zealbecause that can;t be gauged
01:52.04Karrionit is, every day, in court rooms around the world
01:52.17Zealyeah, which is fucked up

01:53.19Barbanusyelling "FIRE" in a crowded theatre is a good example.
01:53.21Zeallets ask a handfull of people how they think this victim might have been effected.. yeah that's fair justic _
01:53.44Barbanusthe effect doesnt matter ..... you are charged because of the potential effect you could of had.
01:54.05Zealthe potential effect can't be gauged any more than the real effect
01:54.29Zealdo you go to the extreme and say the victim could have been lead to suicide?
01:54.42Zealwtf kind of justice is that when the victim is standing right there?
01:55.49Zealit could have made them go on mass murdering spree because of what you did? or what's that, they didn't?! but they might have intended to! _
01:57.49Zealwtf@ at fandylic..
01:57.50Barbanusthe falsely shouting fire in a movie theatre is an example of that tho ... you can cause a riot where people COULD be seriously injured.
01:58.20Zealbecause of their own neglect and beleif in the person's good intentions?
01:58.26*** join/#wowwiki Laraul (
01:58.40Karrionnot necessarily their own neglect, also the neglect of others around them
01:59.09Karrionsomeone shouts fire!, I think, "yeah right", but 50 other people believe it and trample me...
01:59.10Zeal"oh no, fire? fuck everyone else, i don't care if i hurt them i want to live!"
01:59.31Zealyes. lets also charge that crowd because they intend to hurt others..
01:59.47Karrionself-preservation is a normal human response
02:00.12Zealand that justifies harm and possible murder?
02:00.30Zealwell done, you just made an argument to release all murders..
02:00.56Karrionthe crowd had no intent to hurt others, but the person who yelled fire! (unless they had a genuine beliefe that there WAS a fire) did have an intent to cause a panic
02:01.24Karrionwell, self-defense IS a legal defense
02:01.27Zeali just proved they did have intent
02:01.33Zealnot desire, but they did have intent
02:01.45Zealyeah.. self-defense laws are retarded too
02:02.19Karrionhuh? If I'm being attacked, I'm not allowed to fight back to protect myself??
02:02.37Barbanusthere is a limit on self defense
02:02.38bleetahzeal: don't you wish you hadn't mentioned BB? ;) :p
02:02.43Barbanuswhen it turns into murder
02:02.56Barbanuswell a homicide of some soft
02:03.12Barbanusmanslaughter probably
02:03.18AdysSlowwiki has a problem
02:03.21Adysmorning everyone
02:03.21ZealKarrion, atm, most self-defense laws can charge you for using excessive force to prevent death.
02:03.46BarbanusYou are allowed to protect yourself to the point of no longer being in harm
02:03.56Karrionyes, the idea is you're allowed to use necessary but not excessive force
02:03.58Barbanusanything above that, you can be criminally charged for.
02:04.10Zealsadly.. it's not
02:04.19Zealthe laws can still charge you over that
02:04.31Karrionwhere necessary is defined in terms of what you believe, and whether a reasonable person would believe differently
02:05.04Karrionalso, we should be careful to distinguish "charge" and "convict" ;-)
02:05.19BarbanusThere is cases where someone has been attacked in a car with a baseball bat, and ran the person over.
02:05.21Zealif someone has a gun pointed at me, i should have the right to use any force needed to prevent it. making the choice to kill the person to prevent you should not be punished for.
02:05.51Zealbecause that's equal force.
02:06.14Zealand no bleetah, i'm fine with these long talks
02:06.20BarbanusYes, but if you disarm them, and knock them to the ground
02:06.25Barbanusand then pick up the gun and shoot them
02:06.29Zeali learn new things i didn't consider, i get my toughts straight. i enjoy it.
02:06.30Barbanusthats not justified.
02:06.44Zealno it's not
02:06.57bleetahzeal: cool :)
02:07.03Karrionyes, and the jury would be asked to decide whether you could reasonably be expected to believe that the extent of force was necessary to avoid harm
02:07.16Zealbut if the person keeps trying to kill you, to the point you've had to beat them to a bloody pulp until they stop, you shouldn't be charged either
02:08.07Karrionagain, you should use "convict" there
02:08.25Zealany force to avoid death is just imo. the level of force you choose to attempt first should not be argued.
02:08.31Zealnah, charging
02:08.32BarbanusI really really doubt you would ever be convicted of that, in the way you have described.
02:08.41Karrionyou can be charged if the police/prosecutors think there is a reasonble liklihood of getting a conviction
02:08.49Zeali'm saying this stuff should never even be charged
02:09.06ZealBarbanus, people have
02:09.33Zealwasn't long ago someone in america did, why i still have this fresh in my mind :P
02:09.36Zealcos i discussed it then
02:10.24Zealiirc, got held up with a gun, he did the old palm to the base of nose trick, killed the guy instantly. convicted of murder
02:11.44Karrionwell, that's exactly the kind of thing that a jury needs to be asked to decide, so it has to be charged
02:11.57Karrionwas the jury correct in that instance? I can't answer that
02:12.25BarbanusI bet you the procecution proved that he was totally capable of disarming him..... and in that case, its excessive force.... for example a high level blackbelt ninja :P
02:12.42Zealiirc, he was barbanus
02:12.53Zealwhich is what further pissed me off
02:13.22Karrionit could also be excessive if the guy chose to kill, deliberately, when simply giving the money would have been sufficient defense
02:13.35BarbanusKarrion, yes.
02:13.41Karrionin other words, killing is excessive if you're concerned about your cash, not your life ;-)
02:14.01Karrionbut I'm not familiar with the case, so I can't say what happened
02:14.19Zealhe used equal force, i think he was justified, should never have been even charged. they claimed because his hands could be considered a deadly weapon, it was considered murder. which is ridiculous, because he was defending from a deadly weapon.
02:14.21Karrionlike I say, it has to be charged so the court can decide
02:15.03Zealwell as you say, the laws are there for the weak
02:15.14Zealsadly, it also means they punish the strong..

02:18.26bleetahin any legal system, there will be innocents found guilty, and guilties found innocent. it's up to the government to act upon the decisions of juries to modify the laws as the community see fit. 'i'd rather have a guilty man walk free than an innocent put in gaol', and that stuff.
02:19.04bleetahif the law isn't changed due to what appears to be a stupid decision by a jury, it's not the fault of the law itself, rather that of the community who allows the government to continue on without changing it
02:19.43bleetahand if it's a stupid law in the first place, it's the community's fault - not that of the law in of itself
02:21.22bleetahWitness the growing australian reaction to the continued detention of our remaining national in Guantanamo. 5 years without being charged? Someone's created some real stupid laws.

02:42.32bleetahah, good. it wasn't 'most are' in relation to what I suspected you might've been saying (ie, 'most in guantanamo are guilty') as I'd then descend into a tirade against you asking for the evidence ;)
02:42.52bleetahas I hear the US Ambassador to Australia is receiving this exact treatment from our media today
02:44.03bleetahthe dickhead admitted yesterday he hasn't read the security treaty between Aus/NZ/US
02:44.03bleetahaltohugh, think I may have mentioned that earlier
02:44.14Zealif you want to, next i can bitch about how awful the eu is
02:44.58Zealbtw, back to what i said earlier. what basic forms of criminal acts can you think of?
02:45.01Zeali only got two
02:45.04bleetahpersonally, I think it's done good for Europe. I mean to say, at least you haven't had a continent wide war for a few years ;)
02:45.33Zealmost people here would beg to differ, especially in the uk
02:45.50Zealonyl things we've appreciated from it is trade agreements, which we could have done from outside it.
02:46.03Zealand with alot less red tape
02:46.11Zealand invasion into our own laws
02:46.37Zealwe have better trade agreements with america than we do with europe..
02:47.30Zealwowwiki hath ein problem
02:47.52Zeal*einen problemo heh
02:48.06bleetahit can't be an invasion into your own laws, as you guys legally signed up to the Union. If you'd been invaded and had the laws forced upon you, different matter :-P
02:48.09Zealits fun to mess with languages and make up words.
02:48.19bleetahie, it's the community's fault
02:48.46Zealbasically, the laws are decided within the eu, and people of the uk have no say.
02:48.59Zealwe are forced to take on the laws of the eu
02:49.06Zealeven if the uk choose to vote against it.
02:49.25Zealevne if the uk people say they don't want it.
02:49.50Zealbecause both leading parties in the country thought they could change the eu from within
02:49.53Zealwhich they can't
02:51.09Zealthe one in power is divided in what they want to do now, the other wants to stay in and keep trying, and the smaller parties want to leave.
02:51.40AdysEditing is becoming a real PITA with this slowdown and permanent errors
02:51.57Zealand yet we've still got another er.. 4 years? until we can remove them : /
02:52.08Zealaye adys
02:52.42Zealadys, hows politics in france?
02:53.00AdysI dont care enough about my country to follow its political problems tbh
02:53.06Zeallol kk
02:53.42Zeali have an opinion on pratically everything as you might have gussed. so its good to stay in the know
02:54.35Zealfew things i'm undeicded on, marrage and laws surrounding it was one of them a few months ago.
02:54.53Zealbut then my mum got remarried and it changed my opinion because i learnt a few things.
02:57.17AdysI will have a proposal to vote on in a bit
02:57.32AdysIn order to remove the Thottbot link from elinksmob and elinksitem
02:58.08Adyselinks should only ever have one argument, the ID of the mob, quest, set, spell, item or whatever
02:58.21Adysand thottbot doesn't follow the ID rule for these two
02:58.36AdysVoidvector where are you..
02:59.07KarrionAdys: that'll be an interesting vote
02:59.22AdysIm not actually against thottbot at all
02:59.43Adysits just that its getting annoying to have to visit two different websites for items and search through alot of shit
03:00.01Adysinstead of just going to one clean website and have the link for whichever one follow the rule
03:00.42Karrionabsolutely, philosophically and technically, the thott id doesn't belong
03:01.03Karrionyou're going to get people bitching though ;-)
03:01.39AdysI dont care, I want a stable and clean wiki and we are getting further from it every day :/
03:01.53Zeali don't like thottbot, but i'll hold my bias back and vote based on the issue at hand
03:02.27Adysyay :p
03:02.41Zealin which, the outcome is still the same. thottbot doesn't follow the rules, and creates more work for users. i'd vote to remove it, but i don't really care if it does.
03:02.59Zeal*does get removed
03:03.26bleetahzeal: personally, I think the British reaction to 'externally' imposed laws is a bit rich. At least the British had the initial choice to sign up to the EU. Many former British 'colonies' had laws imposed on them externally for many many years. Hell, Australia didn't get full independence from UK judiciary until sometime in the 1980's. Many other former colonies weren't so lucky with a phased withdrawal, they were practically abandoned to
03:04.32Zealbleetah, this is a new generation, and i hoenstly doubt it was the public who wanted that, simply the politcal interests of the goverment.
03:04.36bleetahzeal: I suspect some of this issue you describe is because the British have no recent history of having external laws placed upon them, and as a culture they have lost the method of dealing with that. From what I've seen, there are similarities with the way the EU works with it's member states, to that of the Australian Commonwealth and it's member states, yet we don't have quite so many people bemoaning federalism and requesting it's des
03:06.45Zealif i had my way, Australia would still be part of the british empire. but obviously, that wasn't the case. they should have their independance immediately, and i'm fairly confident the public today would agree.
03:07.47Zealbleeteh, the point is, democracy is slow and flawed. the public want out of the eu, but it won;t be happening anytime soon
03:08.02Zealwe went into it, with promises that couldn't be kept.
03:08.32Zeali don't beleive in such organizations needing to exist
03:09.15Zealmerely one of treaties and alliances need be formed. not overuling body to a nation's goverment.
03:12.23bleetahzeal: could we agree that basically it boils down to the majority of people being stupid and will sign on for any old shit if the marketing's done right ;)
03:12.35*** join/#wowwiki verxion_ (
03:12.47Zealyes bleetah
03:12.49Zeali didn't vote
03:12.54Zealso, meh, lol
03:13.09Zealthey were all pro-eu, just some more than others
03:13.19bleetahoh, well you've voided your right to complain about the laws then :-P
03:13.19Zealso my vote would have been worthless.
03:15.07bleetahbut that's from someone in a country were technically voting is compulsory, practically only attendance at a place of polling (or making arrangements if you can't attend) is required
03:15.24bleetahso you gotta take it with a pinch of salt ;)
03:22.24Zeali'm back to my thoughts on thinking democracy should be replaced with a system like that of BBC News ;)
03:22.40Zealhonestly, its how i think the wiki should be run too.
03:23.13bleetahI'd make a great benevolent dictator.. you want me! I know! you don't have to admit it in public, tho, 'coz that's sedition and treason ;-)
03:23.20Zeali have no faith what so ever in the voting on wowwiki.
03:23.57bleetahtbh, QE2 is an illegitimate queen
03:24.12bleetahthere's some farmer in outback NSW who's got more claim to the throne :-p
03:24.12Zeala dictator that is open to criticism and can admit when he does wrong and listens to his people.. gief
03:24.40Zealtheres several thousand people with a claim to the throne
03:24.46Zealbut none more than her
03:25.13Zealroyal families should go back to inter-breading. end of issue ;)
03:25.15bleetahhmm, I seem to recall a royal historian agreeing with his research, and there being a doco about it... and all.
03:25.40bleetahif I could only remember more than the headline 'King Bruce', I'd be laughing :p
03:25.41Zealeither way, shes more german than english :P
03:25.49bleetahprecisely ;)
03:27.41bleetahbtw, I'm of the firm belief that Australia is a Repulican-Monarchy.. We voted on what type of head of state we wanted, and chose Monarchy.
03:28.08Zealeveryone except the english are facinated by our royal family. we really don't give a crap and would rather see them gone. they're just like annoying celebs for us..
03:29.01ZealQE2 is like this cute little old women we tolerate for amusement.
03:29.15bleetahas head of state, who'd you prefer? a reliably crazy person (ie, you know they're mad, and can regularly deal with it), or every 8 years vote for a different mad person who actually has some real power?
03:30.00bleetahas we know, the vast number of politicians are liars and cheats. I choose the relative safety of a monarchy if by name only
03:30.10Zealthe latter, though increase it to 10 years and be prepared for anything from protesting to civil war.
03:35.22bleetahthe funny thing about him is he's a republican and seeks no claim
03:35.36bleetahie, only interested in the historical record
03:37.07Adyswiki down?
03:38.57Adysah well :(
03:41.41Adysgo vote =P
03:42.03bleetah'vote early, vote often'... just which way?
03:43.39Karriongah 3 options, we need a preferential vote :-/
03:50.10Zealadys, what benefit does option 2 have over existing?
03:50.17*** join/#wowwiki dok3Dal (
03:50.21Adysthottbot being optional argument
03:50.33Adysatm since its the first argument its not really optionnal
03:51.05Zealwell, if the templates aren't conditional then sure. if they are, it is optional, though should be reversed for usablity.
03:51.17Zealbut either way
03:51.29Zealit means the templates need a conditional template
03:51.47Zealso having it as {{{2}}} or {{{tb}}} makes no difference
03:51.59KarrionI like option 2, allows thottbot (or any other nonstandard one that comes along), but doesn't require it
03:52.41Karrionhaving it named means if another one comes along you can include it without necessarily needing include thott as well
03:54.22Zealrofl at alliance races..
03:54.45Zealthat's pretty cool
03:55.00Zealif only that wow stats site actually presnted the info better like that.
03:55.04Adys oO
03:55.14AdysHow the hell did he get there
03:55.20Adyscant be datamined and i doubt its a pvs
03:55.32Zealthey did her
03:55.39AdysShit I suck
03:55.47AdysI didnt even see the dnt logo.. :/
03:55.52Zeali still can't find her model : /
03:56.36Zeali'm rather undeicded tbh adys
03:58.12Zealwell i feel it should be more one way or the other. it's nice to have the option, but if thotbot aren't going to play by the rules, i think they should be removed period.
03:58.27Zealotherwise its just inconsistant
03:58.35AdysI know, I feel that too
03:58.44AdysI left the option because its not everyones opinion ;)
03:58.55Adysyoull notice I voted for removing thottbot completly :P
03:59.03Adysand if they really wanna add it they can do that manually
03:59.30Zealyeah, but you added the bit on the end
03:59.44Zeali would have left that in option 2
04:00.06Adysdont think many ppl will vote 3
04:00.10Zealcos otherwise, option 1 is just option 2, but making things harder.
04:00.10Adysmaybe the thottbot addicts
04:00.29Zealwhich is against the purpose of the change
04:00.44KarrionThere should be an option 4: put "hunter lewt lolz" on everything and cut out the middleman
04:02.58Zeal"If the author really wants to add Thottbot's ID, he can add the complete URL manually just under the template's position in the article." if it was tha't but add soemthing like "but is highly discouraged" or instead just say "Thottbot links should not be added for items and mobs" i'd go with 1
04:03.31Adyswe are a neutral wiki, remember
04:03.36Zeali know
04:03.56AdysWe should have no preference for an external link over another. What we are doing now is kinda against the neutrality of the wiki itself
04:04.02Adysbut its to make editing easier
04:04.09Zealbut wer'e also moving to contain this info outselves, so removing absoleete links, or those that are not accurate is sensible.
04:04.10Adyssince its really a pain
04:04.43Karrionthat's why my first preference is #2, it avoids any of the philosophy and just makes it a technical change
04:04.58Zealdoes thottbot display the correct item and mob ids anywhere?
04:05.17Zealthen i feel that's grounds for removal tbh.
04:05.30AdysThen, vote 1 ;)
04:05.40Adysits a vote and we will go with the majority whatsoever
04:05.46Zealbut 1 doesn't remove thottbot was my point ;)
04:05.58Adysit does
04:06.15Adystrust me, people wont go and add thottbot links manually unless theres something special there
04:06.15Zealremoves it from the temaplte, i mean from item and mob articles.
04:06.30Adysthat we are not gonna do that
04:06.31Zealyou'd think :P
04:06.47Adysbecause it goes against the neutrality to "ban" a site altogether
04:06.50Zeali'm sure there are people who won't
04:07.01Adysjust look at it this way zeal
04:07.09Zealas i said, an outright ruling against it isn't needed, but to add it;s discouraged i'd like to see.
04:07.17Adyswhen the vote is over we will run a bot to change elinksitem params
04:07.27Adysthats how many pages
04:07.33Adyslike 2-3 thousands
04:07.47Adyscounting quest items n stuff
04:07.55Adysa few more with mobs
04:08.07Adyshow many ppl are gonna add thottbot manually to these?
04:08.16Zealwell yeah, that will drop all existing, just suggesting to say it's discouraged unless there is good reason is an idea i'd like to see.
04:08.32AdysGo put it in comments :)
04:08.35AdysI cant speak for others
04:09.02Karrionmeh, anyone willing to edit it in, will claim their reason is "good"
04:09.03Zealmore information you give to users, the better an informed choice they can make. simply not stating that, when you've said yourself, its what you mean, doesn't help people to know what to do.
04:11.47Adyson the end people will see that wowhead is the most accurate database of them all and will use this one instead of the two others
04:11.53Adysthey just need to know it exists
04:17.02Zealwell it's not just that wowhead has the most accurate database (your words, not my claim :P), it's that it presents the information better, has a faster site, and presents the information more authenticly.
04:17.14Adys hmm
04:17.26Adysand aye zeal
04:17.41AdysWell at least on wowhead lockboxes are OPENED
04:17.43Adysnot disenchanted
04:17.45Zeali cba to read. i have no concept of rogue gameplay beyond lvl 20 :P
04:18.07Zeallockboxes are right click to open iirc
04:18.10Adysyou know what i mean :P
04:18.22Adysyea and on thottbot they are dissed into morrowgrain
04:18.32Zeallol never seen that
04:18.52Zeali followed from wowhead's example for it
04:19.25Adys ;)
04:19.29Zealbtw, did you ever resolve the item effect spell/itemspell issue?
04:19.53AdysI dont really have that much experience into templates
04:20.01AdysI just design them, I dont program them
04:20.02Zealcos i still maintain all the databases have ti wrong, and even if they don't, they are not linking to the correct spell.
04:20.08Zealnah, not about templates
04:20.16AdysI didnt look
04:20.20Zealits about the relationship between spellitem and spell ;)
04:20.36Adyswe'll see
04:20.44Adysand if you're correct
04:20.51Adyswe're just gonna need a Socketbonus: namespace
04:20.53Adysnothing more
04:21.11Zealwell it covered + dmg aswell
04:21.19Zealso not sockets only
04:21.36Zeallike +10 arance damage
04:22.22Zealif those are only for socket bonuses i dunno, would need to check that too, but i suspect not.
04:23.42Zealbut their values are fixed unlike spells
04:24.20Zealand don't contain any icons and spell atributes like radius, description, debuff, rank etc.
04:25.08Zealprobably the onyl reason they're in a seperate database is because they use like a 10th of the fields on the spell table which is the largest table in the database..
04:25.24Adyshehe /who ironforge = 3 players total counting me
04:25.33Zealdead, lol
04:25.49Adysdarnassus = 1 player
04:25.51Adyslevel 1 ^^
04:25.58Zeal10 man mc @ 70 :p
04:26.18Adyswe did an ubrs run some time ago
04:26.18Adyswe gotta do it again now more are 70
04:27.18Zealwith how many people?
04:27.57Zealmy hope is 70's will do the 60-end game now, and the loot they can sell, will go on auction houses for cheaper than before
04:28.33Zealso it's better for casual 56-60, and those going to outland can still get the teir sets before hand if they have the money
04:30.18Zealnothing better than thunderfury @ 70? O_o

04:53.14Kirkburn|afkIt's more standard, okay

04:53.20Kirkburn|afkAll html editors use 6 digits
04:53.22Zealits not mroe standard :P
04:53.28Kirkburn|afkBut he was wrong in the way he changed it
04:54.00Zealbecause they want to be fully compat with those who want to use random colours, nothing having to do further checks needless on the programs part, it makes sense.
04:54.20Zealthey should really optimize when completed
04:54.34Zealand reduce to short hand where it can
04:54.50Kirkburn|afkSimplicity, I guess - otherwise you start using different styles in different parts of the code
04:55.01Zealhow so?
04:55.27Kirkburn|afkSay one part uses 363636, and another uses 333333, then you'll have two different hex styles after optimizing ;)
04:55.30Zealonly those who do not understand css would have problems, and teaching css is not the job of styling..
04:55.39Kirkburn|afkYeah I know
04:55.43Zealwtf you on about :s
04:55.55Zealchaning it to 333 does no harm

05:13.31Adysme ><
05:13.59AdysC'tait son dernier template...
05:14.41Hobinheim|playdid i mention i don't like the exists template
05:15.31Hobinheim|playi can't vote cuz it won't load
05:15.48Adysyea kirk is updating bs
05:15.56Hobinheim|playanyway, my conspiracy theory is that the exists template contributes to the server slowdowns
05:16.04Adysno kidding :p
05:16.13Kirkburn|afkIt errored, as per usual :P
05:16.28Kirkburn|afkAlso, it has almost certainly pinged vlad as a result :/

05:18.55Zealthey're all contributing to brining the wiki to its knees
05:19.13Zealand vlad knows now
05:19.29Zealand said he plans to upgrade and put parserfunctions on next week or so.
05:19.41Zealso we can wave them all goodbye
05:20.11Zealand sorry i took so long to reply (well can't not the wiki is down) Kirkburn|afk, was settling a lore debate elsewhere
05:20.28Kirkburn|afkTemplate should be fixed now
05:20.30Adyswhere where?! :)
05:21.04Zealrofl can't say tbh.
05:21.17Adys#pornforfreee ?
05:21.24Zealno, lol
05:21.28Kirkburn|afkWiki is back
05:21.37Zealoo, i got a page without css, lol
05:21.45Kirkburn|afkYeah, so did I
05:21.54AdysKirk, theres a typo on the template
05:21.57Adysgonna fix it brb
05:22.26Kirkburn|afkYou evil bastard
05:22.30Adyssorry that was just too tempting
05:22.42Zealand yeah, that exist temaplte includess no page. your point? it ads even less server load than any of the other conditionals
05:22.56Kirkburn|afkWell, there is the fact the image doesn't link to the BC article now
05:23.08Zeal*exist template resulting Class: link list :P
05:23.18Zealyou know my thoughts on that
05:23.23Zeali don't want it to : /
05:23.59Zeal2px margin huh?
05:24.14Hobinheim|playuhh there's no way to know how much "server load" a given template affects
05:24.24Zealwhat happens when someone changes font size in the browser? that's right, it's no longer aligned ;)
05:25.53ZealHobinheim|play, other conditional templates include the contents of pages and have to resolve values of parameters. exist merely includes one page contents and another that does not exist exist (thus nothing to include) so yes.. there is less load
05:26.16Zeali read up about it on mediwiki before i gave the results i did on the village pump
05:27.18Kirkburn|afkZeal 2px margin because I removed the padding
05:27.31Zealoh shit er..
05:27.34Zealbad move
05:28.26Zealjust noticed you used {{img}} ;) lots of conditionals there.. alot lol
05:28.39Zealhave to see how it holds up
05:29.01Zealanyways.. try using em for the margin was my point
05:29.10Hobinheim|playi'd like to see your research
05:29.24Hobinheim|playi don't believe you and i still think it's wrong, regardless
05:29.28Zealno research to be done, already there hob.
05:29.54Zealeither way, i want all the conditional templates gone, the argument of server load of each is irrelevent
05:29.57Zealon mediwiki
05:30.40Zealit explains how transclusion works, templates, server load, expansion, the restrictions they put in place as a test to combat it.
05:31.17Hobinheim|playthe exists parser function still shouldn't be used in the loot template
05:31.28Hobinheim|playby the time that upgrade is done, we should have a way to properly edit the css
05:32.06Zealyou'll notice conditional temaplates used too many times on a single page = dead page, dead wiki when the template is changed. templates using conditional templates on many pages = slow wiki, dead wiki when the template is changed.
05:32.28Zealwe've already been through the css idea
05:32.29Zealthat's fine
05:32.45Zealbut can't be used in all cases
05:33.06Zealas you've have to make css for everytime you wanted to format something different based on existance
05:33.26Kirkburn|afkHmm, gonan change it to not use img template
05:33.35Kirkburn|afk(btw, I got that from one of the examples you did)
05:33.46Zeali know Kirkburn|afk. this was before i knew
05:34.06Hobinheim|playcss is for formatting
05:34.11Zealimg is better, i just wouldn't recommend using it on a large scale until it uses parserfunctions
05:34.17Hobinheim|playmaking a css for each instance of something to be formatted is expected
05:34.37Zealbut not exceptable to put it in css Hobinheim|play
05:34.49Hobinheim|playit's not acceptable?
05:35.02Hobinheim|playwhat are you talking about?
05:35.20Kirkburn|afkAnd it's off
05:35.38Zeallets say i want to check for the existance of a image to decide if i want to display a thumbnail of it or the full image...
05:35.52Hobinheim|playwhy would you want to do that?
05:36.10Hobinheim|play"a thumbnail" or "a full image" both require the existence of the image
05:36.16Zealbecause a thumbnail > generated rescale
05:36.24Zealno hob
05:36.26AdysNot a manual thumbnail
05:36.46Adyscheck Silvermoon: Anatomy of a City for an example
05:36.58Zealhm Adys?
05:37.34Hobinheim|playnot loading
05:37.45Zealanyways.. theres no way we should be sticking in random exist outcomes in the css.. only those which are standard to the wiki as a whole, which loot is.
05:38.02Hobinheim|playyou're still not outlining a really good example
05:38.04Hobinheim|playyou sound crazy
05:38.15Zealcos i can't think of an example atm.
05:38.16Hobinheim|playyou're making zero sense
05:38.19Hobinheim|playstyle things belong in css
05:38.23Zeali'm making plenty of sense
05:38.26Hobinheim|playand they aren't that hard. you're just making them sound hard
05:38.58Zealthey do hob, when they are used on the wiki. but if a user wanted to style their user page, you don't stick that in the site's css
05:39.09Hobinheim|playof course not
05:39.18Zealsame goes for exist outcomes
05:39.30Hobinheim|playwhat does a user's page have to do with exists used throughout the site
05:39.33Zealif they aren't standard to the wiki, they don't belond in the css
05:40.11Hobinheim|playright, so what are you saying
05:40.23Zealoh ffs..
05:40.24Hobinheim|playit just sounded like you're disagreeing with yourself

06:06.29Kirkburn|afkZeal "convert wow's concept of yards to meters" doesn't work, unfortunately :P frFR, esES and deDE al use meters already, where 1 yard = 1 meter :(
06:06.31Zealaye, but look less ugly that what it currently does
06:06.50Zeali see Kirkburn|afk, thats lazy :(
06:06.55Zeali'd do it by yards though
06:07.04Kirkburn|afkYeah, it was designed with yards
06:07.05Zealcos that was the intended of
06:07.14Kirkburn|afkWish we had metres in the enGB version though
06:07.48Zeali was taught when the change over was taking place.. so i know.. neither :p
06:08.58Zealthough i was more confortable with metrics when it came to m, cm, mm for measuring in terms of plans and designing, but with height, feet and inches :P
06:09.22Zealso got a nice jumble of both, with no idea how to convert :p
06:10.31Zealanyways.. Adys, personally, i'd drop the set table, ofc convert to my tooltip, move the image to right, and add that clear.
06:10.47Adysignore the set table
06:10.51Adysthe tooltip is big enough itself
06:11.08Zealbut you do it in existing articles with the toc
06:11.24Zealwhat else.. hm.. some navigation boxes..
06:12.28Zealmy point is, the wiki is a mess, its inconsistant, i felt clearing was more presentable and better for keeping things in order and where they belong until such time the wiki adopts a better layout for articles.. aka. mine.
06:13.43Kirkburn|afkZeal, did you just say you were taught when the changeover was taking place?
06:13.43Zealaka? ie.
06:13.52Zealyes, iirc
06:14.10Zealperhaps not exact, but i was taught both, with an emphasis to favour metric
06:14.14Kirkburn|afkActually, I guess that's kinda true
06:14.39Kirkburn|afkCertainly the first few years we would have come across imperial in textbooks
06:15.04Kirkburn|afk(since it's only normal to replace those about every 30 years in most school ;)

06:22.34Kirkburn|afkBy "Source", what exactly does it mean? Where you can obtain it from in-game?
06:22.53Zealhonestly adys, if the wiki was fixed width, i'd be interesting in persuing the coarse of action you're taking with your dev page. but its not, it's futile to try : /
06:22.56AdysYea kirk
06:23.12Zealwell i still think i'm right, that page just needs a lead in
06:23.18Adysthen we can make it fixed width
06:23.35Zealatm, all the important info is in the notes >_>
06:23.39Zealwhich is stupid

06:23.49Zealand no, we can't adys

06:24.31Kirkburn|afkWhat's wrong with that design atm anyway?
06:24.48LaraulThere needs to be a complete redesign of the CSS
06:24.53Zealadys wanted to make something more along the lines of wowhead.
06:25.12Adystwo tooltips for infos is a great idea they had imo
06:25.16Zealyet, it would require fixed width, otherwise you end up with overflow or empty space.

06:25.52Kirkburn|afkI would agree with the two tooltip idea personally
06:25.56Zealnot talking about fon't :p
06:26.06Kirkburn|afkKeep the tooltip exactly as in game
06:26.12Zealbut fixed width is not good web design either.. lol
06:26.15Adysyep thats the point
06:26.17axxofixed width pages are the worst thing in webdesign
06:26.27Zealcertainly not for a site with dyanmic content like a wiki
06:26.57LaraulOh you mean fixed width for a specific screen resolution
06:27.04LaraulThat's bad too
06:27.11Kirkburn|afkLike making the content box 800px, that type of thing, yes
06:27.19Zealyou could though, fix by em
06:27.24Zealwhich is perfectly exceptable
06:27.54LaraulThe thing should be readable even at 640x480
06:28.03Zealbut fixing, even by em, means empty space.
06:28.33Zealbut it does atleast ensure line length are readable, which i think is well worth it.
06:28.34Adysis there a possibility to use some javascript for a show/hide button
06:28.51AdysI was thinking of remaking the tooltip like in game for set items aswell
06:28.53Zealif we have acess to the js files, then sure.
06:29.01Kirkburn|afkCan anyone reach
06:29.05Adysbut it would make it huge, so would be good to make a show/hide setbonuses
06:29.09AdysI can kirk
06:29.21Zealtbh, Teomyr|off would be a good person to talk to about that, having intergrated a tooltip tag and javascript for it.

06:33.55Zealas i was saying. atm, crafting merley links to the item. the in-game way should not be done, but in-game it makes sense to do it. however, they still did it awfully anyways, so we should not emulate that. i'd like a hover tooltip for the item, just as is planned for lootlinks.

06:41.45Zealflimsy plastic film used for food packaging, the sort that is glued down to the container, and when you go to peel it off, it rips to shreads, often with the barely seeable plastic falling into your food..
06:42.34Zeali hate that law tbh..
06:42.53Zealits wrong that establishments can't decide on their own rules
06:43.30KirkburnTrue, but there isn't much incentive for them to ban it themselves
06:43.31Zealit should be made criminal, there should be a ban on public smoking, but i think establishments should be able to choose if they want to be smoking or non-smoking.
06:44.08Zealcos under that law, they have no choice. its non-smoking or they get a fine to the point they get closed down..
06:44.20KirkburnTis true
06:45.16KirkburnOut of the 20 or pubs around my town, I only know of one that banned smoking so far
06:45.23Zealnext up.. no farting in public or establishments.. it polutes the ozone.. >_>
06:45.31Zealonly in toilets or in private..
06:45.36KirkburnIt's wonderful in that pub though, so, /so/ much nicer

06:50.41AdysKirkburn's warning: This is your final warning. If you recreate that page again, you are banned. Do five article deletes not suggest anything to you? {{User:Kirkburn/Sig}}
06:50.57AdysAnd his answer:
06:50.57AdysUmmm I was under the impression that I could add whatever I felt like to the DOOMHAMMER forum which is relative to DOOMHAMMER and it's fucking lingo. If you have a problem with it then delete all the other lingo entries from the lingo list, because if anything they are just as bad. Until then I will continue to post my ENTRY!!! under BALLIN!!! until you get the point.
06:50.58AdysIt is a word USED by many people on the alliance side, and there for IS lingo that should be under the lingo forums. SO until then I will continue to post it until you make it up in your mind to DELETE all entries under doomhammer lingo.
06:50.59AdysTrust me when I say, it will not stop, The post will continue, even after you ban me! So do what you can, because it will not stop!!

07:07.13Zeali never knew cauliflower cheese could taste sooo good.
07:07.13Adys"Imps should get their own flying mount"
07:07.21Zealwhats up with you Laraul? :S
07:07.36LaraulI dunno...
07:07.43ZealKirkburn, Tesco's Cauliflower & Cheese.. you must try some :P
07:07.50LaraulJust fustrated
07:08.25Zealwell when that happens, i usually order a movie on ppv, and stay up till i pass out. but if that's not working for ya.. :s
07:09.17Zealperhaps some sleeping pills?
07:10.15LaraulI ran out the other day
07:10.40LaraulThey don't always help either
07:10.45Zeal still remains win..

07:13.07LaraulBut when you wake up you feel so awful
07:13.15zeali bet
07:13.20LaraulSo it's not worth it
07:13.40KirkburnHeh, I love this sketch from Family Guy:
07:14.11LaraulOnly time I've done that is when I'm having a bad panic attack and will do anything to get me to stop
07:15.05Kirkburn(also this one:
07:15.12Laraulof course... after you take a bunch of pills that just makes you panic more... at least until they kick in
07:15.53LaraulWhen they kick in... it kicks in fast...
07:17.19LaraulWhen you are anxious like that though you just aren't thinking... and you end up doing some really dumb things

08:13.09ZealKirkburn, i maintance my opinion of family guy. yes its funny, but as a series its awful. short clips bring to light how bad it is. its simply incoherent sketches throughout an episode, no impact to the characters or a plot.
08:13.44Zeal*maintain :s
08:14.15Zealso as shot clips, as they are on you tube, are good. but that's it.
08:14.42Zeal*they are
08:15.40KirkburnWho cares if it's essentially a sketch show, it's still funny :)
08:16.24KirkburnBut if it's not someone enjoys, that's entirely up to them - it's a very dividing show I know
08:16.34Kirkburn*something someone
08:17.25KirkburnIt's like porn - no real story, but enjoyable in parts \o/
08:18.12Kirkburn(oooh, he went there)
08:19.59Zeali prefer the amatuer stuff ;)
08:20.34Zeali just don't feel it fills it's purpose. if it was presented as a sketch show, then fine, but it's not.
08:40.07KirkburnThese situations are just /stupid/ - and
08:44.21LaraulDoes Charlie die? Is his fate already written?
08:45.19LaraulIf he is killed off man that'll suck
08:48.39Zealany *sigh* Kirkburn
08:48.55Zealstupid laws ftl
08:53.39Kirkburn*sigh*, so I have to write a report on Foundation design for tomorrow :/ Boooring
08:54.04*** join/#wowwiki dok3Dal (
08:56.29Zealsuck to be you ;)
09:00.16Zeal whats the bet the "undiscovered" one is a pheonix?
09:05.40KirkburnThe new PCG has an attunement to Hyjal chart :)
09:06.52KirkburnAnd yeah, sounds likely
09:10.26KirkburnPc gamer
09:10.35KirkburnAlso, it gave WoW:TBC 87%
09:10.36Zealdon't buy gaming mags tbh
09:10.52Zeali'd probably agree with that rating
09:11.15Zealwow however, would get a bit lower ;)
09:11.21KirkburnThey called the Arrakoa "Skettis" :/
09:11.25Zealnot much however
09:11.33Zeal74% or something
09:11.38Zealskettis? :s
09:11.56Zealisn't that from another fantasy world?
09:12.45KirkburnOoh, naughty - they used Map Viewer to get a screenshot of Hyjal (current Hyjal)
09:12.58KirkburnSkettis is the Arrakoa's main city
09:13.06Zeallol Kirkburn
09:13.09KirkburnIt's in Terokkar, only accessible by flying mount
09:13.33KirkburnBut yes, the name Skettis is taken from a bird-like race from elsewhere, don't recall which
09:13.34Zealoh? hm.. is it like atop a waterfall? :s
09:13.44Zealah kk
09:13.51Zealremember flying over that in map viewer ;)
09:13.59KirkburnMost of their review screenshots are from Hellfire
09:14.05Zealactually i remember going up there in the sandbox >_>;
09:14.32Zealback when their tree buildings weren't complete
09:15.11Zealand looked like giant white pinocchios.. O_o
09:15.38Zealactually, looked like bill and ben..
09:15.58KirkburnI do agree with one of their points - they should have added more stuff from 20-60
09:16.11Zealimo, nah
09:16.26Zeali do think their should have been one new low lvl instance though
09:16.32KirkburnNot a huge amount, but just a little more variety
09:16.33Zeal*at least one
09:16.37KirkburnYeah, that kind of thing
09:16.55Zeali was expecting ZA to be that at first..
09:17.15KirkburnThere's two portals in Quel'thalas, strangely
09:17.34KirkburnI guess one could be a ZA back entrance
09:17.41Zealonly seen one :s
09:18.00KirkburnYeah, I've seen people mention there's one in Eversong, and one in Ghostlands
09:18.16Zealany idea where in eversong? O_o
09:18.25KirkburnThe troll camps, east side
09:19.56KirkburnSE it says
09:20.14Kirkburner, eversong
09:20.38KirkburnAccording to the wiki's page on Eversong, anyway. "An unknown wooden gate"

09:24.04KirkburnOoh, that reminds me
09:24.14KirkburnWe could probably bot moving {{bc}} to the page beginning

09:24.46Zealseems to be the same entrance model as ZA
09:24.53Zealso backdoor maybe, yeah
09:25.38Zealgod damn.. i need texture aa..
09:25.53Zealcan't wait till i get a new gfx card, onyl thing that annoys me

09:27.11AdysWait wait wait

09:27.53KirkburnGet the nVidia 8xxx one they're about to bring out
09:28.02KirkburnIt's supposed to be £300
09:28.06Kirkburn$300 I mean

09:29.03Zealwith or without xfire
09:30.03Zealjust out of curiosity, how many processes do you guys run on average? :P
09:30.18KirkburnIs that the R600?
09:30.39Kirkburn65 processes atm
09:30.45Zealand just incase you forgot, yes seen the pics, and we had a long talk about it.
09:30.49Zealhm.. wow surprised
09:31.06KirkburnHowever, this laptop is in MAJOR need of an overhaul
09:31.07Zeali'm running 55 atm
09:31.26KirkburnNot sure about my VIsta desktop
09:32.21Kirkburn(just brought it out of sleep mode)
09:32.33Zealapparently a big load of critical security patches today/yesterday for windows
09:32.38Zealdunno which one, but i think xp
09:32.44KirkburnThat's with the sidebar up, several G15 processes and some progs open
09:32.54KirkburnYeah about 10 for XP
09:32.57Zealsvchost hates me
09:33.01KirkburnCouple for Office and 2 for Vista iirc
09:33.14Zealrandom cpu spikes and the most mem usage of anything on my pc..
09:33.28KirkburnNo svhost on Vista afaik
09:33.48Zealyet i've reduced the service count to what i need.. and because of the nature of services, i can't find out what the problem service is
09:34.12KirkburnThe list of services I have running is enormous
09:34.37KirkburnLol, I lie
09:34.46KirkburnMany many svhost on Vista, but they're hidden by default
09:34.51Zealyay, wowmapview has kileld my resources now it seems, everything is sluggish : /
09:35.07Zealthough as much
09:35.16KirkburnHmm, Vista seems to hate me today, so gonna shut down
09:35.23KirkburnPlus I'm off to Uni now

09:36.30KirkburnI should probably restart this laptop at some point ^^
09:36.53KirkburnPoor thing, it takes about 2 minutes from login to actually be usable
09:37.10KirkburnScared to put Vista on though, in case I brick it
09:38.19Zealas i though, one of the fixes is a fix for windows defender
09:38.31Zealapparently a vulnerability in it :P

10:25.28winkilleror inconsistent atm?
10:25.33winkillerI read some proposal..
10:25.37Adysatm we keep to [[ Guild Name ]]
10:25.51AdysYea tusva wanted to move them to Server:Servername/Guildname
10:25.55Adyswhich I think is great idea
10:26.29winkillerthe problemis, as usual with the dozens of disamb. pages
10:26.39winkillerals most people just use /[[ ]]
10:27.30winkillerback to work now...
10:27.38Zeali'm fully against what tusva suggested
10:27.43Zealand i'm for Guild:
10:28.04Zealand i don't agree with what adys siad
10:28.14Adysthat I know
10:28.30Zealbecause atm, most are going udner Guild: as i think they should, and clearly someone else before me did too.
10:28.53Adysdont care how its named, we do need a better guild system
10:29.12Zealnamespaces >_>
10:29.26Adysand a page with as only content for over two weeks "Coming Soon" would get deleted straight away if I was allowed to
10:29.27Zealthe guild disambig stuff is still unresolved
10:29.41Zealyou're not allowed?
10:30.18AdysNot allowed to delete pages straight away without either them being spam, terminated, sd tagged, obviously useless or anything
10:30.46AdysI can tag them SD and let another admin delete them
10:30.52Adysbut its being very slow atm ><
10:31.19Zealoh i see. i guess that makes sense, enforces a second opinion before action
10:32.36Zealoo.. i know someone from that server..

14:48.35Walabut I can't edit it like the others I did
14:48.51WalaIt's the Cenarion expedition page (, the rewards are bugged
14:48.57Walabut I don't know how to fix it

14:49.11equiraptorYou're logged in on the  website, right?
14:49.41equiraptorHrm. I dunno. I'm waiting for the page to load.

14:51.30Waladid it work now?
14:52.34equiraptorIt's not the link
14:52.44equiraptorWoWWiki has a pretty heavy load, and my work does some odd things with the connection.
14:52.51equiraptorSo the page just doesn't always load for me.
14:53.05Walait's a big page
14:53.31equiraptorIt loaded for me, and I was able to reach the edit page.

14:54.22equiraptorAh, I see.
14:54.41equiraptorSo what do you do to try to edit it, and what happens?
14:54.56WalaI don't know how to edit
14:55.06Walait don't shows a box of info to change, just the name of it
14:55.15Walahow do I fix the problem on the layout?
14:55.22Walais there anywhere else that I have to change?
14:55.27Walalike a template or something?
14:56.21equiraptorI'm thinking.
14:56.28equiraptorHonestly, I'm not very familiar with the wiki.
14:56.36equiraptorI hang out or IRC because I love IRC. ;) But I'm thinking.
14:57.33Walathe list on the right, it's the people on the irc?
14:57.53equiraptorThat kind of stuff varies depending on your IRC client and your settings.
14:57.59equiraptorMy IRC client doesn't have a list on the right.
14:58.17Walanever used IRC before, I'm using mIRC
14:58.26equiraptorMy guess is that those items are appearing oddly there because only part of their information is listed in the WoWWiki database.
14:58.53WalaI think so too
14:58.55equiraptorOr because it's not entered correctly.
14:59.00equiraptorWoot! My brain works.
14:59.16Walathere are like a hundred templates listed on the edit of the rewards
14:59.18equiraptorSo, to fix that, you'd need to fix the data on the items.
14:59.33Walabut I have no idea on how to edit/fix it
14:59.43equiraptorLook at the differences between and
15:00.10equiraptorThat looks like more a formatting issue than anything else, though.
15:01.20Walawell, I must go back to work
15:01.25WalaI'll take a closer look at it later tonight
15:01.29Walathanks a lot tough :D
15:06.01Montaggequiraptor: Looks like someone didn't set the vertical-align properly on that table. Let me fix it fast.
15:06.06MontaggWas that the only problem?
15:07.00equiraptorThe main problem wala was talking about was the lack of item information in, in the exalted section.
15:07.23equiraptorThe Orb was just one example of a problem item. I haven't looked at all the items yet.
15:08.02MontaggHm. Okay.
15:11.43equiraptorYeah. I was running into that earlier. :/
15:14.06MontaggHurray for over-templatization.
15:15.42Kirkburn|afkFor god's sake, my delivery was carded /again/
15:15.46MontaggWe better fuckin' get one. This is getting ridiculous.
15:16.34Kirkburn|afkOddly, the telephone number I've been given isn't for a company, and doesn't sound like the delivery person either
15:16.36MontaggIf we don't, I definitely suggest we do a couple things to relieve the strain on the wiki until we do get one, like convert templatized tool-tips into something light weight and stable.
15:17.06MontaggKirkburn|afk: Have you called it?
15:17.21Kirkburn|afkYeah, got an answer phone for a lady called Sarah
15:17.40Kirkburn|afkGonna try again in a few mins
15:18.05Kirkburn|afkCan't think what I could leave as a message ... I mean, I have no idea who the person is :/
15:18.27sancuswhat does 'carded' mean
15:18.39sancuswhen referring to deliveries? :P
15:19.06Kirkburn|afkCard thru the door saying "we tried to deliver, but couldn't. Please blah blah blah rhubarb rhubarb..."
15:19.15sancuswell be there newb
15:19.29Kirkburn|afkI normally am!
15:22.43MontaggI'm seriously considering just not editing at all until we get an upgrade.
15:23.12MontaggI have to block out like ten minutes of time to fix spelling mistakes. =c)
15:25.55Kirkburn|afkYes, always remember to Select All and Copy before making big edits ;)
15:26.26Kirkburn|afkffs, what is it with pretty much every german website in existence. They ALL have the same bloody popup
15:26.54Kirkburn|afk(and all of them do not close properly, and use your click to open a new page)
15:27.43Kirkburn|afkIt may occur for you on this site as an example (click one of the links) -
15:29.02Kirkburn|afkI just find it unbelievable that german-speaker put up with that crap. Many of the sites also have popups built in.
15:30.40Kirkburn|afkMontagg, btw, agreed abuot Gsdkp
15:31.28MontaggKirkburn|afk: Does NPOV have information about advertising?
15:31.36Kirkburn|afkSo long as he doesn't do it to every page (which he hasn't been), fine by me. Especially since on most of those pages, they didn't yet have the loot.
15:31.52Kirkburn|afkGood question, shall have a look
15:34.25Kirkburn|afk"Hi, this is Sarah. Can't get to the phone right now" etc etc ... that's what I call an odd message for arranging a delivery with. Hmm. I mean, I guess the delivery person could be her, but sounds odd.
15:35.50MontaggKirkburn|afk: Definitely sounds like a cell phone or something. The company might give them phones for work and the employees just use them as personal phones, too.
15:36.00Kirkburn|afkYeah, it's a mobile number
15:36.28MontaggBy the way, I made a post on Village pump about how to reduce the load on the wiki temporarily if we don't get an upgrade.
15:36.37Kirkburn|afkI saw. And then I couldn't access it.
15:37.02MontaggIf I were a new editor, I wouldn't be for very long at this point.
15:38.33MontaggWW:NPOV does mention not using "self-promotion." Nothing specific to advertising. Although I feel like I've read it somewhere, anyway...
15:39.31Kirkburn|afkMight be a guideline?
15:39.46MontaggMight be.
15:40.25Kirkburn|afkSide topic - we should go over the templates we have an make sure they're as simple as possible. We have so many atm (and I think some of them are overused)

15:42.08MontaggI think many of our templates very deep, in that they call other templates, which in turn call more templates. Good reuse of code, but it's making the server work it's ass off.

15:43.27MontaggI was just editing Cenarion Expedition, and when you're looking at the edit page, you notice at the bottom the absurd list of pulled-in code. Mostly from tooltips, but the list is huge.
15:44.15Kirkburn|afkWe didn't get this kind of effect before, though :/
15:44.41MontaggRight, but our tooltips are more complex now. They actually do processing instead of just text formatting.

16:41.46MontaggAt least by server, because I only have access to one account.

19:32.24Adysit doesnt, why would it?
19:32.49MontaggIt's on the Rest article, but I also feel like rest XP accumulation is slow compared to pre-BC.
