Hey, to be able to revert mass vandalism more quickly, you can place
to User:Monadic/wikia.js, which allows you delete or rollback an user's contributions in a click. Be aware, though, that if the user has legitimate edits, those will be reverted or deleted as well. I've already informed Thayvian about this tool. Cheers! TK-999 09:53, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
Hi, the link "Check my what?" on the protected page "Privilege" is broken, you may want to restore it to http://blog.shrub.com/archives/tekanji/2006-03-08_146. Thanks, Jeremie Koenig 10:41, April 29, 2012 (UTC)

Your deletion of my talking point
Thanks for messaging me about your reasons for deleting my contribution. I understand that you want to protect your users from vitriolic naiive posts. Would it be possible for you to point me to a place where such a discussion would be welcome?
I would also like to make it clear that I don't "have issues with some aspect of feminism" (I can see why you would be wary of this - but from this comment I'm not 100% sure you read past the title of my contribution), I absolutely understand that people use the argument that women are essentially different from men in defence of the status quo or to absolve themselves of responsibility or to justify sexist policies. I don't think I've misunderstood the point at all.
My point wasn't to say that essentialism isn't a valid feminist concern that deserves highlighting, I was only suggesting it could be a bit more neutral by pointing out that there are gender differences that can be advantageous to understand, and that in fact these differences can be used as arguments for greater equality - "equal representation is important not only because men aren't any better than women at anything, but also because a healthy gender mix is actually, measurably, preferable in all these specific circumstances".

Good Evening Monadic,
Currently a Whitehouse petition to the Obama Administration would implement grants/funding to schools willing to adopt a curriculum and other academic functions that would support:
-Resources for children who are survivors of sexual abuse (1/5 girls and 1/20 boys are victims of sex crimes)
-Effects of sexual abuse/assault
On top of the rampant amount of crimes involving children. Recent cases like Steubenville highlighted the cultural misunderstandings about sexual assault, and showed how deeply this is an issue. If we can educate more people about sexual assault, we can try shaping cultural attitudes on this problem.
Support for this is greatly needed, if there is any chance of your team (I have already sent out a few emails) putting this message out there it could potentially make a good impact on the number of signatures for that petition, and the rapes in America. Thank you and have a nice day
On Starting a New SIG
Please have a look at my message at http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Vaurora on starting a new SIG.
Also why don't we have a mailing list/forum for discussion?
Thanks and Best
My name is Ariana- I'm on the community development team over here at Wikia. I came across your wiki and love the idea behind it! I am wondering if you and the other wiki admins might be open to having our team redesign the main page? (We would create an original background, wordmark, title headers, add videos, and more).
Let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
All the best,
Just thought I'd give you a quick anonymous heads-up about this.
- Thanks for the warning. Vandalism on this wiki is nothing new and I've alerted the other editors to be extra-alert for it. Monadic (talk) 21:43, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
- ) Having perused the geek feminism wiki, I've come to the conclusion that the Wiki is not a true wiki at all, considering the lack of citations in many of the articles, the militaristic deletion of talk pages that do bring up very solid points, complete with references (the reversions of the LoversLab article in fact states "vandalism", when no real vandalism occurs, so much as corrections and citations). A wiki is an open community where all are free to contribute knowledge, not a site where one person force feeds their hateful ideals down others throats. This site, is in fact, in violation of the TOS for wikia, and I've already reported it. Given the terseness of some articles, and the downright hateful tone of others, it's bordering on a hate group, giving true femisim a bad name. This site in no way contributes to the continuing fight for equal rights under the law for women, such as equal pay, job opportunities, getting rid of the gender gap in insurance prices, the list of things that this wiki pays little to no attention to that should be at the forefront is astounding.
