I always assumed wikis should be as big as they can be, with as many entries as possible regardless of their validity or content.

Just kidding, though in many cases thats what happens!

Also, wikis are there to allow people to change correct things into incorrect things. Then other people change them back again.

Also, the verification thing is annoying.

Yeah the verification thing is annoying, better to have that show already instead of "after" initially "trying" to post...

Some of those word combinations would make great band names though.

Ideally, a wiki should be composed entirely of sarcastic lies.

I'll get working on that part of it ASAP.

It's awesome, itsn't it? Anyway, I could use some of your sarcasm to improve some of the pages I just edited. Can you guys help me out?

It goes along with the two smiley per post minimum and the multiple posts with a single response per post!

That one is actually fading with time though.

:D

My grandmother always told me that it was ok to talk to yourself as long as you don't respond.  It looks like it's too late for GP. :icon_eek: :wink:
Me and Wissenlander had babies!

not together.

finding photographic evidense that Wiss smiles is going to be hard...

I just blame it on the aging process.  And there are those that say its a sign of seniality. :icon_lol:

Besides, the conversation is actually between me and my conscience.  They have different personailities.

(GP ... they're going to think you're completely wacky now.)

Nah, they already do.

The greatest form of control which can go on forever until it is exposed is a tyranny you can't see, touch and taste (unlike totalitarian Govts). When you sit in a prison cell but can't see the bars, because people don't rebel against not being free when they think they're are.

then it's been that long.

Originally it was like, "Nicholas Bies, god's gift to the warhammer world, expert general and amazing wargamer. Bow down to his presence for he is awesome."


quite a fitting montage if I do say so myself  :engel:

Wasn't there a bit in THHGTTG (or at least the original radio version) where the ruler of the universe complains that the problem with talking to himself is that half the time he already knows what he's going to say. When questioned, "only half the time?" he pauses, thinks about it and says, "yes, that's about right."

Yes, that was awesome.

Why don't you just say H2G2 though?

What is the criterion to judge whether a certain issue deserves a wiki site? Everything that has to do with WHFB and/or W-E.com?

'Cause sometimes I'm bored.
