I made a new page on concern troll

https://conservapedia.com/Concern_troll

I'm hoping someone with better formatting experience and slightly more information can add to it..

The black Israelite page is incredibly under-done

there's only two paragraphs on that page and even Wikipedia has much more information.. I suggest a collaboration on this site to really fill it out in respect to the black Supremacy that they promot

Why was this page deleted?

https://www.conservapedia.com/Christopher_krebs


Chris krebs is an important figure.. the removal log says that it had insufficient information but the last time I was there it was a fully written article with all the proper citations.. bing searches can prove that with the cache text

Captcha is faulty

When editing an article you can go to the editor and then click publish however the captcha does not appear until first clicking publish.. which adds a few extra unnecessary ste


Getting into search results

I developed a userscript to replace googles Wikipedia results with conservapedia

Would anyone be interested? Its completed. And it works

Sounds fabulous! Please tell us more about it.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 12:12, 12 December 2020 (EST)
Basically the way it works is it literally just changes the Google search results.. If you type in a topic that would normally have a Wikipedia entry at the top it will change it to the text found on conservapedia as well as taking you to conservapedia if you click it.. I've tested it and it works as long as there is a conservapedia page with the same name as the Wikipedia one.. If not it will just default to Wikipedia..

I'm currently working to find some developers to improve it and see if it's possible to plant search results for conservapedia pages that don't exist on Wikipedia.. but so far it already works really well. Ive uploaded it here https://gofile.io/d/Q63V6k And you can download it and open it in a text editor to see that it's legitt

Getting into search results

I was wondering if there's any way to develop a chrome extension or a user script or something that can replace Wikipedia information in Google search with conservapedia?

Wikipedia is obviously unreliable and it would be nice to have conservapedia results insteadd —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mikephshdj (talk)

An extension should be able to do this, but you would probably need to make it from scratch. It sounds like you are talking about modifying the search result page itself, so that might be bit difficult, though. The search engine will still be returning WP results, so I think you would need your addon to check independently for a CP page on the same topic, then do post processing on that page to overlay that CP result on top of the WP result. A somewhat "lazier" option would be to do DNS replacement/interception in the addon, and simply redirect wikipedia.org URIs to conservapedia URIs. The search results would look the same, but when a WP link is clicked, you would end up on CP instead. Of course, if CP doesn't have a page by the same exact name as WP, that wouldn't work. --DavidB4 (TALK) 15:09, 12 December 2020 (EST)
The second option you gave probably wouldn't work because obviously you want the results to have the correct text.. But the first option would work.. I actually found somebody and they developed a user script.. it works pretty well.. I don't know if an administrator would be interested in advertising it on conservapedia because if they did it would enable users to create better search results..

Mobile Site Editing Not Working Properly

When I try to edit a page on the mobile site, as soon as I tap on a line all the text goes white and I have to try to guess where words are. I constantly have to turn off editing so I can see where sentences and things are, and then turn it back on so I can actually edit them. Is this supposed to happen, or is it a glitch of some kind. Eholkins

Well that sounds very problematic! No, that is not supposed to happen. It seems to work properly for me, although I typically switch out of mobile view and just scroll around on the standard view instead, just by preference (I know, it sounds crazy, but with good eyes and a large screen, it works). Have you tried a different browser on your phone, such as Firefox? --DavidB4 (TALK) 18:43, 4 June 2019 (EDT)

Taking AP Biology

Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but... I am a student in public high school, and am taking AP Biology. I have just learned that Evolution is an entire chapter in the course. Would it be moral for me to learn evolution without believing it just to pass the test? Or should I drop the course? (This would be very time consuming and difficult)- David —The preceding unsigned comment was added by DavidKondner (talk)

Nothing immoral about learning about evolution at all. Go for it and you will be pleasantly surprised to learn what evolution is actually like. After all, the majority of people have major misconceptions on what it is which leads to their denial of it. Learning about something from those who support it is always best for learning the truth about the subject, don't limit your understanding of things to just those against it. Riddles 23:30, 14 October 2009 (EDT)

I think Riddle is a very smart man and you should listen to what he has to say. No, you don't need to believe in evolutionism, but how are we suppose to become one peaceful humanity without learning about one another. user:horenvalle 14:01, October 16 2009 (EDT)

Learn a falsehood and pretend it's true, and more falsehoods, confusion, depression and errors will follow. Realize that atheists must believe in evolution despite its falsehood and you'll immediately see why they push, and push, and push it in public schools.--Andy Schlafly 22:56, 14 October 2009 (EDT)
"Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never peril. Sun Tzu"
If there's only a chapter on evolution in your course, I'd be amazed. Any non-creationist course on biology is likely to be evolution-centric. After all, if one won't accept special creation, it's the only game in town! Just keep in mind the difference between science (testable, repeatable) and just-so stories ("This feature arose because ..."). Here are a couple of links you might find useful and encouraging:
You also might want to invest in a copy of Evolution Exposed, a book that breaks down the evolutionary assumptions and explanations, explicit and implicit, and provides both brief answers and directions to finding more information on line.
In short, you need to know what the evolutionists teach, even if you know it's wrong. ~ Webster (talk) 15:53, 24 October 2009 (EDT)
better learn the material. College consists of a lot of required courses you have to take but don't have to believe. RJJensen 01:05, 27 September 2009 (EDT)
All the examples of such requirements consist of learning and reciting anti-Christian beliefs. I'm not aware of any colleges or AP tests that require learning a Christian belief to obtain basic credits.
Try homeschooling David, or try a college that does not require recitation of evolutionary beliefs.--Andy Schlafly 01:12, 27 September 2009 (EDT)

Thank you all for your wonderful suggestions! In the end I decided to take the course and found out it wasn’t nearly as bad as a thought it would be. I expressed my concerns to my teacher beforehand and he was very understanding. Before we started the unit he was very clear to the class that evolution was a theory and we were under no obligation whatsoever to believe evolution, however he still expects us to know the material for the AP exam. It’s amazing how similar some of God’s creatures can be and I can almost see how a Godless Atheist might believe they once shared a common ancestor. All in all, the course has been an enlightening experience and, for the most part, has given me greater respect and appreciation for God’s creatures and life in general. --Davidkon 14:59, 3 February 2010 (EST)

Davidkon, we have no way to confirm your experience, but even if true it is not typically for public school science teachers, most of whom can be very liberal and very dogmatic about the theory of evolution. Also, I find it odd that "he still expects us to know the material for the AP exam." AP exams are like extra credit, for an extra charge, and are rarely a requirement of any public school class.--Andy Schlafly 17:21, 3 February 2010 (EST)

As I’ve said before, my AP Bio class is relatively harmless, but my AP government class is sure getting out of hand! The entire class is one big batch of liberal propaganda about how social reform is “necessary” and how that the current conservative platform on homosexuality is one of “intolerance and bigotry”, and that’s a direct quote from the textbook! There are countless other biases that I have to deal with on a daily basis. On top of that when I asked my teacher about concerns the course is liberally biased, she told me “David, I’m sorry to tell you this, but reality has a liberal bias.” Can you believe that!?!--Davidkon 22:22, 2 March 2010 (EST)

I thought that this website was supposed to educate people, yet people cannot be educated if they cannot know what the article is talking about and what the proof is. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Std (talk)

Proposal

I wrote some time ago about making plans to build Conservapedia into a force to be reckoned with. This site has the potential to become a powerful tool, but still has a ways to go, I think. As an example, I just did a search on ACORN, a group funded by leftist billionaire George Soros that is becoming a very serious threat to the integrity of local elections. All I found was a one-line page about the oak tree. Of course the solution to this is to simply create the page myself. But I don't think this solves the larger issue; to my knowledge, there isn't a program of incentives inviting conservatives to contribute high-quality information and research articles on our opposition. How do we do this?

For one, I take it that Conservapedia gets some heavy traffic. Heavy traffic = $$$ in potential advertising revenue. Use that money to attract the right people to help build Conservapedia into a powerhouse of information. This could include rewards for college students, or hired admins (background checked with references and resume, of course). Perhaps contact county or state Republican/conservative groups, show what you've done, and propose a team effort to get more people to contribute articles to the web site.

In short, there's a million ways that this project can grow, and it is more important to me that the conservative cause succeeds than to keep these ideas to myself. My hope is that someone reading this will take hold of them... Alexander 17:35, 29 May 2008 (EDT)

Banning policy?

Hello, I represent a website interested in your work. However recently a member of ours, JMcClane used your website and edited a page on Obama because it stated he was a Muslim, which it has been proven he isn't, he has been banned for 5 years, care to comment? It was a JPatt who did the banning, would he like to comment too?

JMcClane removed a large amount of material in that article and replaced it with this:
"Obama is regularly mistaken as Islamic due to his second name, in fact he is not Muslim though stands for equality between religions. He is in fact Christian, though rumours were spread by Conservative spin Doctors hoping to turn the public against him."
And who is JMcClane to you? Care to comment on that? Karajou 14:16, 12 October 2008 (EDT)
Beyond the fact that you didn't answer my question mate, we're part of the same website who are interested in the current election in America, you might have heard of it. He became involved in this site and this happened, so I reiterate, gonna answer the question properly?
I did answer your question, "mate", and you're not going to act like you run this place; you will answer mine now. Karajou 14:33, 12 October 2008 (EDT)
As I said, we're part of the same website. I'm sorry about the mate comments, I'm just friendly like that. You've said you banned him cause of the edit, but isn't it kind of harsh as it is proven he's not Muslim so the entire article was pointless. That's all I'd like to know. And 5 years does seem steep.

Which website do you represent? Why are you interested in Conservapedia? Our banning policy is carefully calibrated and appropriate to the demands of the various situations.

Google misdirection

In Google Search, the entry for ""Alger Hiss - Conservapedia" was changed today from "http://www.conservapedia.com/Alger_Hiss" to misdirect to the nonexistent Web page "http://www.conservativeencyclopedia.com/wiki/Alger_Hiss." Is there a way to ask Google to restore the correct link? FOIA 13:19, 4 February 2009 (EST)

  • Thanks for noticing and reporting this, FOIA, but nothing needs to be done. When we had the hard drive failure, and temporarily re-directed, the search engine bots picked that up. Now that things are restored, the bots will report back to all the search engines, and in due time will be directing properly. The Google (and all other engines) are smart enough to compare and repair. Or so they say. Administrator Conservative might have more insight into this, and I have linked him to this page. --₮K/Admin/Talk 14:23, 4 February 2009 (EST)

Copyright?

I'd like to comment that File:Kathleen Sebelius.jpg should probably be tagged as “fair use” rather than as “public domain.” Also, I think the description of the {{commons}} template, both in Help:List of Templates and in the template body itself, is slightly misleading: items in Wikimedia Commons are not necessarily in the public domain. Thank you. Npov2 00:56, 24 April 2009 (EDT)


Why does the Conservapedia page on the 1951 movie, "The Thing From Another World" say that, "The film is now in the public domain."? Was there a problem with the copyright, or its renewal?

Evolution feature on the Main Page

The section of the main page devoted to the Evolution article states that, "In 2006, the prestigious science journal Science reported concerning the United States: "The percentage of people in the country who accept the idea of evolution has declined from 45 in 1985 to 40 in 2005. Meanwhile the fraction of Americans unsure about evolution has soared from 7 per cent in 1985 to 21 per cent last year." The study was conducted with 2000 Americans (approximately), selected by pseudo-random digit dialing over the telephone. the study found that the portion of people unsure about evolution has increased in a statistically significant manner. The second finding of the study was that the proportion of people who believe in evolution and creationism have not changed in any statistically significant way (i.e.: That the p-value of the 1985 and 2005 data sets is greater than 0.05 - simply put, that there is not enough detectable difference between the respondents in 1985 and 2005 to make any kind of statement about it). Essentially, the study cited on the main page didn't actually prove that the public belief in evolution is declining. I would request a change to that article to remove the irrelevant citation about a decrease in evolutionary thinking among Americans. Praboud 19:52, 15 June 2009 (EDT)

Referred to as a Methodist

Hi, I am not sure if this is the right location to ask this, but at the bottom of my user page there is a category section that says "Category: Methodist Conservapedians". I didn't place that there and it isn't available for editing out when I look at the editable content for my user page. I only bring this up because I am not a Methodist and I do not wish to mislead anyone into thinking I am. I do not know who added me to this category or why, or somehow if I accidentally did this myself. If possible, may I be added to the "Agnostic conservapedians" category instead? Thank you. -- BMcP 8:42, 20 June 2009 [EDT]

It appears to be because of your userbox "This user believes in the United States Constitution." When I tried putting it on my user page, the Methodist category automatically appeared there as well. --OscarJ 09:02, 20 June 2009 (EDT)

I might be wrong...

But I do see quite a bit of bias on Conservapedia. If this is supposed to be "The Trustworthy Encyclopedia" then shouldn't bias be removed? I think that some of the articles are great and others are blatantly biased based upon the authors moral views. I know that some of the topics go against the beliefs of the people who run this site but it isn't a great way to run things. Tolerance of others and their beliefs, no matter what we think of them, is what Conservapedia should be about. Just my opinion and nothing more.

Just your unsupported opinion and nothing more, you might have said.--Andy Schlafly 21:35, 20 June 2009 (EDT)
I could have, but I figured that people would pick that up from "I might be wrong...". I never had any beliefs that my opinions were supported here, as I had to make an effort to "vocalize" them. Generally people on and off of the internet don't support my opinions.
What I meant was that you made a claim of bias without providing any examples to support your claim.--Andy Schlafly 22:02, 20 June 2009 (EDT)
Ah. [[1]] "Ernesto "Che" Guevara" "became a cultural icon for" "dumb white teenagers." [[2]] "Communism is an atheistic political system" Although extremely hilarious, I think that those articles are somewhat biased and detract from Conservapedia's accountability. I have not seen Wikipedia style hijackings yet though.
Conservapedia is definitely biased. Its even in the name

Which is unfortunate because it would be great if it wasn't and we could make the case to certain search engines like DuckDuckGo to replace Wikipedia with it.. It has a great amount of information that you won't find on Wikipedia you're very dedicated user base.. unfortunately the bias does prevent it from ever serving as a true mainstream alternativ

For a more moderate alternative theres always infogalactic

But they don't really have much of a user base that keeps their articles up to datee

I believe this is right place to ask this, so here I am. I want to write an article on the astronomical phenomenon known as a "Nova", however all search on this site for that word is already directed towards "NOVA", a stub on the PBS series of that name. Should I rebuild that article to focus on the astronomical phenomena as that is what the base definition of a nova means? Or start a whole new article, such as "nova_(star)"? Thanks. --BMcP 13:18, 28 December 2009 (EST)

I'll move "NOVA" to "NOVA (PBS)", and you can then have "Nova". Thanks.--Andy Schlafly 13:56, 28 December 2009 (EST)

Editing complaint

Someone started a debate page without posting any comments, so I decided to start the discussion. I spent about half an hour writing the post, clicked on save, and was redirected to a page informing me that I didn't have permission to edit it (Probably because it was the first post). And I was unable to go back and copy/paste what I'd written to post it later. Can someone please fix this so that if you click on a page to edit that you can't edit, it tells you straight away and doesn't simply waste your time. Thanks. - JamesCA, 31 July 2011

And something similar. I recently tried to edit a page because some of the information was out of date, and did not find out until after I tried to save it, that it was locked for only administrators to edit. - JamesCA 19:02, 29 August 2011 (EDT)
Both of the above comments surprise me, and the software should not lose information as you described. The browser being used may have an effect on this also.
I thought that locked pages (which I think are a very small percentage of entries here) announced themselves as such when there is an attempt to edit them. The browser should not discard information regardless.--Andy Schlafly 19:11, 29 August 2011 (EDT)
It looks like you lock up editing at night. Is it possible that these folks were just caught by the deadline? --DrDean 20:03, 29 August 2011 (EDT)
That is possible, I just tried editing the same page, and it worked. Also, because of my different timezone, I sometimes find that while looking through Conservapedia articles, the edit tag suddenly disappears, because the deadline suddenly comes in. Is there a way to check how long until the deadline? I'll check to make sure the information actually is lost when I get a chance. And does the deadline cut off at the same time every night? And also, who can start new pages (including debate pages)? Thanks - JamesCA 21:56, 29 August 2011 (EDT)

Christianity and Politics

I'm wondering what is your take (creators of conservapedia) on the mixing of Christianity and politics? I ask because as a young Christian I'm a little confused about how much focus I should give for politics alongside my faith. Other opinions I've read disregard politics completely within a Christian life, as if Christians in general should simply accept and respect whatever form of government rules over them regardless of the corruption or misguided policies such governments may contribute to the falling of the nation. Please clarify this conundrum for me as I feel uncertain if politics should be in any part of my life. God bless. --gravis57 12:32PM, 8 August 2011 (EDT)

Do you mean with regards to being active in politics, or how much your religious beliefs should influence your political opinions? One suggestion, try coming up with and arguing using non-religious points to support views that stem from religious beliefs. It'll enable you to more effectively argue against those who believe that the Bible alone is not enough to justify moral opinions. It'll also give you a wider range of arguments you can call on when discussing religion, politics or morality, and will enable you to more easily come up with counterpoints to arguments that you've never come across before. For example, if you're arguing against gay marriage, try using points such as family values, and the effect it would have on the institution of marriage, instead of using (only) quotes from Leviticus and Deuteronomy, and points based around what God says. - JamesCA (not a creator of conservapedia), August 9 2011
Not exactly. I'm asking as a Christian to another Christian(s) as to how much politics should be a part of my life, or if they should even be apart of it at all. I mean while the founders of this great nation used God's principles to create a system of government that ensured rights, liberty, and freedom--is it wrong or vain to wish to inform, protect, or care about my country when Christ called us to spread his Word and not (unless I'm mistaken) deal with lesser matters in regard to such (political) things. This is where I'm confused about whether I should become even somewhat active within politics or simply disregard it entirely to focus on Christianity. - gravis57, August 8, 2011
It's not wrong, and it's not vain, to wish to inform, protect or care about your country. It's part of serving one's country, part of helping people. There are many varied ways that you can help and serve people, and God. Christ called us not just to spread his Word, but to serve. 'For the son of God came not to be served, but to serve.' Can you serve God by becoming involved in politics? Maybe. Could you help people by becoming involved in politics, and by getting Congress to give them what they need? Or would it be better for you to serve another way? If you did become involved in politics, would it make it more difficult for you to serve God? I guess my general point is this: you can still serve God and the people by becoming involved in politics, but whether or not that is the best place for you to serve is a different matter. I'm starting to think that I might not be able to give you as good of an answer as you're looking for. Hopefully someone else will see this and help answer your question. Note about dates: different time zones is causing the inconsistent dates. - JamesCA, August 9 2011

Request for disambiguation

Hi there. I was hoping to work on the page poetry as well as other pages about poetic forms. However, as it exists right now, there is only the page form which talks about musical form. I'd like to include a form page about poetry, is there any way someone can disambiguate it into 2 articles, form (music), form (poetry) for me? Or is it preferred that I just start a new section within the existing form page? Much love --RLorain 16:27, 27 August 2011 (EDT)

Question regarding Debate

Someone posted a new debate semi-recently, Debate:Should the United States of America really be counted as a country? It was tagged for speedy deletion as it was silly and a non-debate. After a bit, I decided to answer the question, explaining what is necessary for something to be considered a country, and that the US clearly falls into the current definitions. My answer was then copy/pasted onto a new page for the theory of what constitutes a country, and the speedy-deletion tag was removed. No one else has posted on the page, and as the debate is quite silly, is it appropriate for me to delete the page? (And if it is, but I can't, can someone else do it, thanks). - JamesCA 03:21, 14 October 2011 (EDT)

Greetings and couple questions

I just signed up a couple of days ago or so, so please bare with me as I learn the ropes! By way of background, I love God and truth and science (like physics, math, electronics, computer programming, etc.) I'm very conservative. I do have three questions! First, question: Is edit turned off at night? I work full-time during the day often don't get home till late and sometimes the edit links are gone, But right now, they are on and it's late so maybe it's hit or miss!

Second, is the owner's goal of this site to be a full spectrum source of family friendly information (like with articles on math, science, electronics, etc.) or is it supposed to be more geared toward moral issues or issues specific to conservatism? If full-spectrum, I will be glad to contribute scientific information as time permits.

Third, is the owner's goal to have articles relating to moral issues to carry a conservative slant, or is the goal to be as factual and unbiased as possible?

My tendency is toward truth whether it's comfortable for me or not -- rather than slanted either way. However I fully respect the site owner's right to run his private property as he wishes and I wouldn't want to upset anybody (or waste my time) making edits that weren't pleasing to the owner. Thanks & have a great day! Jesseg 01:57, 8 February 2013 (EST)

Jesseq, three answers...
1. Editing is sometimes turned off at night at owner's discretion, but productive newbies are granted night-editing privileges.
2. The goal of the site is a full, online encyclopedia covering as many subjects as possible, with the intent that the content be family-friendly. So, you can pretty much contribute in any subject.
3. Moral issues can carry a conservative slant, but I believe that these issues should also be in a "right vs wrong" slant as well. We sometimes tell what the liberal side believes in, but we also will tell why that side is wrong at times.
So, pick a subject, commence editing, check your sources, and do the very best you can. Karajou 02:25, 8 February 2013 (EST)

How do I put those nice little tabs that show your opinions on my user page? I know almost nothing about computers, so help me out here. SGrosman 15:22, 30 March 2013 (EDT)

Username change to Winston Smith.

Hello, would it possible to change my name from my current one to a new one called Winston Smith? Thanks.

Just create a winstonsmith account. If there is a way to rename a username via the Wikimedia software, we don't know how to do it.Conservative (talk) 18:40, 21 March 2018 (EDT)
The user that wrote the request created that account only a few hours ago and only made two edits, both of them being requests to change the username.

Wait. I thought Andy was able to approve new usernames and change it. Well, at least back in 2009, he was. -- Geopolitician (talk) 15:20, 9 June 2018 (EDT)
If you are correct, you could go to Andy's talk page. But why bother him with a request like this? So much easier to create an account called publius1 or publius2, publius472, etc. etc.Conservative (talk) 15:35, 9 June 2018 (EDT)

FUNimation page deleted labled as advertisement when it wasn't.

One of the admins deleted the page even though it was against their libral practices like other pages on this wiki. I think it was probably mistaken as advertisement due to lack of sources. I want the page back and I want to improve the page including adding sources. I was following how the page on The Walt Disney Company was created. I think FUNimation needs a page here and was mistakenly deleted. I wanted to tell the admin that deleted it mistaking it for advertisement with my account Conservaboy but I can't edit for some reason so I made an alt account until that can be fixed. By the way, both account links are red because I haven't put info on them yet and I will do that on my current alt account. -- Naan 8:19, 13 March 2020 [PT]

The admin who deleted that page and blocked your account is User:Karajou. You will need to speak with him on this matter. It was probably seen as an advertising attempt because it is a paid service, and lacked in citations and overall notability. --DavidB4 (TALK) 11:40, 13 March 2020 (EDT)
Thanks. I will tell him and I will point out that it was mistaken as an advertisement attempt instead of an actual page and that I forgot to put citations and that I will do that once the page is restored or recreated and add some more information on their shady business practictes that made people upset including removing the cancel function on their service FUNimation now and blamed it on a glitch and provide a link to a YouTube video that proves that they have left wing agenda in their dubs. I'm now back on my original account. -- Conservaboy 10:43, 13 March 2020 [PT]

Ehsan Sehgal

I came here from Wikipedia to ask whether this site allow anyone to use Conservapedia to shamelessly self promote their-self? This guy has been curating his bio both on Wikipedia and Conservapedia for the past one decade yet remained under the radar. Other than self promotional material, I also found most of the information on his Conservapedia bio is made up and is fabricated. His Wikipedia bio was deleted this week and I'm curious what do you guys think of this Conservapedia bio? --Saqib (talk) 15:44, 18 May 2020 (EDT)

Hi Saqib, we generally do oppose self-promotion articles. The article was imported by User:JusticeOfJustice, who said they are the original author of the text. I will look into it a bit further. Thanks for the heads-up! --DavidB4 (TALK) 15:53, 18 May 2020 (EDT)
@David, JusticeOfJustice is actually Ehsan Sehgal himself. On Wikipedia, his username was Justice007. See this deletion: [thread https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Ehsan_Sehgal_(4th_nomination)]. --Saqib (talk) 16:04, 18 May 2020 (EDT)
Mr. Sehgal is very sick. There is no point in upsetting him by deleting the article before he dies. I locked the article.Conservative (talk) 13:01, 19 May 2020 (EDT)

Conservapedia in other languages

Are there any possibility to create other language versions of Conservapedia for active conservative communities around the world (for example, German, Polish, Russian, Hungarian)? Of course, some of them already have their own wikis, like traditio.wiki, but there are no interwiki links between projects. Such projects also lack base for homeschooling, thus being completely useless for parents with conservative views. If engine of the Conservapedia could give us the possibility to link to existing wikis in other languages or create the very new language versions, it would be perfect for the development and spreading of the conservative thought worldwide. Lakonur

Hmm, interesting idea. Perhaps CP can be modified so that there's an option to change the displayed language for this online encyclopedia? —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Monday, 18:27, 2 November 2020 (EST)

Irrelevant post

Whats up with Evolution and the wiki in general? Pretty sure evolution shouldnt be treated like that, it doesnt violate religious beliefs and has been proven over and over again. Just a suggestion-maybe be a bit less anti-evolution, you ever heard of tolerance? There's a reason why this wiki is inactive. Your only audience essentially consists of RationalWiki editors spying on the wiki. Do you ever address opposition or do you just spam banhammers? I dont speak out against someone or anything usually, but this is the exception. So much conservative bias on this wiki that it isnt even FUNNY. You suppress any and all people who have SLIGHTLY different beliefs than you. You should be ashamed, you are acting just like a cowardly dictator. Heh, not many of your cronies are left anyways. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Syncronyzer07 (talk)

Two things: first, evolution has been proven wrong too many times to count, and we are going to print such evidence on this website. Try doing that in Wikipedia, and you'll have your edits reverted immediately and then blocked from the site. Which leads to second: don't come here and scream to us about tolerance and how we should be accommodating to all of those beliefs you think we suppress at the drop of a hat. We see in the news every single day how it is YOUR SIDE OF THE FENCE that routinely suppresses thoughts and opinions they don't like. So don't lecture us. Karajou (talk) 13:13, 19 February 2021 (EST)

First of all, YOUR first argument is irrelevant, its funny how every person like you says that. Second, Wikipedia says that Evolution is a scientific theory, which means that it is something that has CONSISTENTLY been verified by scientists. Very funny-well, how do you know that i'm a Liberal? Do I hear conservative bias? Anyways, even if you are right, and the liberals are part of some worldwide conspiracy, well, dont you think that Conservatives would do the same thing? Just some food for thought. You are a hypocrite. YOU dont lecture me, Karajou-theres a reason why i put it at the very top.--Syncronyzer07 (talk) 13:51, 19 February 2021 (EST)

Its irrelevant if you say so. And your point about Wikipedia is actually pointless, as it is written by amateurs with little to no credentials on the subjects they are talking about, while writing about a theory that they say is a fact, and you come here using their bias on the subject to insist we have a bias against it here. And yes, I'm going to lecture you. Karajou (talk) 14:05, 19 February 2021 (EST)
And it's so very obvious you're a liberal. We always get the occasional rant from the clown who just has to come here and whine about our bias how much we restrict his freedom of speech...and usually from the very first posting he makes. Karajou (talk) 14:10, 19 February 2021 (EST)

Editing complaint

Recently, I tried to create a article but I failed to do. When I click on 'publish', then it takes me to CAPTCHA.

Prinon (talk) 10:09, 11 April 2021 (EDT)

The article in question that you posted was copied word-for-word from Wikipedia; that is not generally approved of here unless you were the original author of the article there, and even then it would need some revision to conform to Conservapedia's manual of style.
