Welcome

Welcome! And I have to say you that you did a great work :) --millosh 04:09, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I'm planning to stick around... i was basically driven away from Wikipedia yesterday, and was driven by adrenaline. But i'm going to continue going. Funny thing is that right now i'm on my job, it's just that i that no work to do at the moment... q;-) I like it that in Anarchopedia one can actually make article names non-capitalised. Beta_M (VolodyA! V Anarhist)

Great :) I was sure that some expirienced Wikipedians would come to Anarchopedia. Because a lot of people (as well as a lot of anarchists) are not familiar with wikis. And the way of working on wiki is a lot different from work on other site. (And, yes, work is not right word, but my English is not so good :) ) BTW, you are Russian? Do you want Anarchopedia in Russian? BTW2, do you know do work on GNU/Linux? --millosh 08:50, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I would be considered Russian by many people, and i think that is what you are talking about... right? q;-) I wouldn't mind getting russian version of Anarchopedia started, but let me get english version down to the degree when people can actually use it as some sort of a refference. Btw, in your opinion what is the main point of Anarchopedia, what i'm trying to do is to actually show how encyclopedia can be written without any regulations... so it would be to see if Wikipedia is the only way or only one way. Beta_M (VolodyA! V Anarhist)

Initially, I started a small number of languages for Anarchopedia. Even there are a lot of Spanish speaking anarchists, I spa: is not so active. Italian Anarchopedia doesn't have 2 articles. So, I stopped openning of new languages until there are some people who are interested in writing Anarchopedia in their language. I noticed that your name is Russian and I thought that you mey want to open Anarchopedia in Russian. --millosh 08:21, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I agree that Anarchopedia in English should be much better then it was before you came. Anarchopedia in German and in fra:French are much better then this one. And only because there were no people who wanted to do what you are doing now. (My English is not so good; also I am trying to be involved in creating articles as less as I can because I think that people should not care what do I think about exact content of articles.) --millosh 08:21, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I started Anarchopedia with this ideas: (1) Free knowledge is one of the main anarchist goals and "one big anarchist encyclopedia" should be written in such way. (However, there is Infoshop OpenWiki which is older then Anarchopedia, but it has some disadvantages; as well as we can treat Wikipedia as enough good place for encyclopedic articles about anarchism.) So, the first, but not the most important reason is to build "encyclopedia about anarchism" in "anarchic fashion" ;) (2) Anarchopedia should be, also, "encyclopedia for anarchists", which includes (in general) something like "general encyclopedia without right wing POV and without authoritarian POV" (even it is called NPOV on Wikipedia). So, in general, all articles from Wikipedia are welcome here. Of course, with some changes :) (3) I would not say that Anarchopedia would be "without regulations", but "without power structure". All editors of Anarchopedia are equal and they are regulating Anarchopedia. I think that you did mean the same. (4) And, maybe the most important idea is to see how can we build anarchy, at least in cyrber space. I treat Anarchopedia as some kind of social experiment (but, of course, not only as a social experiment): if we have enough responsibility and enough strength to build "Wikipedia without power structure", we would be able to say that we have enough responsibility and enough strenght to build anarchy in the future. Also, successful Anarchopedia would give possibility for successful (Anarchopedian) community, which would be a great event. --millosh 08:21, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Sig on wikipedia

beta m, your sig on Wikipedia is messing up lists. See [1], for example. Quadell 09:50, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)

When i went there it was already fixed. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, i'd fix it myself it that would be necessary. Beta_M (VolodyA! V Anarhist)

it was a pleasure to restore your page :] Libre 08:30, 30 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome

Thanks for the welcome. I notice you copy content from other wikis to here; you are more than welcome (encouraged) to copy content from the wiki I started on veganism / animal rights, wikiveg. The license is dual GFDL/CC-by-sa, which allows for content to be used under either license. Zach Alexander 21:53, 13 Mar 2006 (UTC)

I'll start on that one when i finish with the some other ones... thanks for the heads up. Beta_M (VolodyA! V Anarhist)

Admin privs

Dude, are you crazy???? Why do new users have admin privs??? Spam bots can just sign in and ruin the fuck out of this place... Infinity0 22:17, 20 Mar 2006 (UTC)

Whoops, I thought you were the admin. Infinity0 22:23, 20 Mar 2006 (UTC)
It's ok... q;-) Beta_M (VolodyA! V Anarhist)

User account

Hi beta_m. I think you won't be able to log into your user account since it starts with a lower-case letter. Perhaps this is due to a software upgrade. Rev 22 10:40, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Kategory Humor

I think we need this kategory. By the way your joke is good: http://www.whatwethink.org/kingston/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=1024 ;) --X 06:28, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Go for it... i suggest that we make a subspace for it, though as well as the category, so that when people post links around it will be abvious that they are posting jokes... for example you can have Folklore:family trouble. The problem is also with the issue of copyright, many jokes are around which have been pulled from magazines like Maxim or Mad Magazine, how to we differentiate it from true folklore?  ~ User:Beta_M (VolodyA! V Anarhist) Talk [[{{subst:CURRENTYEAR}}]] [[{{subst:CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{subst:CURRENTDAY}}]] {{subst:CURRENTTIME}} (UTC)
The reason for my idea of including humor is simple. If people hear the word anarchism, they see a picture with bottle-throwing chaots or black demo or fighting people in the tv-news... Anarchism is more, it's life what included also humor. Our aim should be to bring the idea of anarchism to the people, they should think it's perhaps my brother and not that anrchist people come from an other world... (I hope you can understand my intension with my bad English.) --X 19:13, 12 April 2006 (UTC)
I had the feeling that this was the reason for your proposal. It's actually quite a fair point, and i agree with this, i was just saying that we need to be careful not to jeopardise the whole Anarchopedia project.  ~ User:Beta_M (VolodyA! V Anarhist) Talk [[{{subst:CURRENTYEAR}}]] [[{{subst:CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{subst:CURRENTDAY}}]] {{subst:CURRENTTIME}} (UTC)

Request for comment :)

You are a poet, so I thought that perhaps you are interested in leaving a comment here. ~Rev 22 15:36, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Hey people I would like to leave a little comment myself. I feel this sites are a big step forward in Anarchy. By heart and by word. People.. Thanx to let me know that I ain't alone in my believes! hihi

Bye and keep up the good work!! x and love Annemiek --84.25.108.202 18:37, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

ISS Revenge and Category:Star Trek starships

Sorry to bug you again. These articles seems to be a parody or an original fiction of some sort. What do you think we should do of these? As with Category:Essays and Category:Poems, I think there is a problem with non-encyclopedic articles sharing the same categories with encyclopedic ones. ~Rev 22 16:55, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Here is how i approach the whole thing: Will somebody look for this information on the internet? If they will, then try to categorise the articles appropriately... decide yourself how to do that q;-); however, if nobody will ever actaully want to read that (well apart from a giggling original author) then there is that delete button on the top...  ~ User:Beta_M (VolodyA! V Anarhist) Talk [[{{subst:CURRENTYEAR}}]] [[{{subst:CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{subst:CURRENTDAY}}]] {{subst:CURRENTTIME}} (UTC)

Hehe, well that is my approach too. I am personally opposed to censoring content just because it is non-encyclopedic or unrelated to anarchism. Deletion/censorship is a very serious action which should be reserved only to "illegal" content or when database space is exhausted. Categories are supposed to be useful for finding "stuff", so there may be a problem when a category is clogged with non-encyclopedic content and one is looking for encyclopedic articles only. But this will probably become a serious problem only when Anarchopedia will have 100,000 or more articles ;).

BTW, I was thinking about moving the essays from Category:Essays to Category:Archived essays so that the former category can be used for articles about essays. ~Rev 22 17:32, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Question

Hello. Curious as to why you have imported a number of articles from "BoyWiki"? The site and subject matter in question, and the way the articles have been written, are extremely disturbing. Regards, Neo 16:28, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Multiple reasons. I will try to list the ones that come to mind immidiately... i'm a little bit in a hurry.
  1. Information demands to be free. Some of those articles are a little bias (some are more than a little), but i think they were a very good starting point for a propper informative articles.
  2. I to the large extent support childlove movement.
  3. I believe that this topic is becoming more and more relevant. And as such needs to be publicised. Even if you disagree with something, simply not talking about it won't make the world a better and freeer place.
  4. I was trying to increase the number of articles in Anarchopedia by doing datadumps. I've not done that for a while, but that is partially due to the fact that i don't have much time.
Well i am sure i have/had more reasons, but i can't remember all of them now.  ~ Beta_M (VolodyA! V Anarhist) Talk 17:08
