So what Transanimalism? (Also your and my talk test)

Just asking what "Transanimalism" in Transhumanist ideological "tables"

It's a very new, very fringe idea, transanimist, not trans-animalist. Jedediah Walls is currently writing a book on the subject and describes it something akin to the goal of spreading intelligence across the universe. He brough it up in the Facebook discussion thread mentioning the book so I decided to add it there. I'll be writing it up of course in more detail. Deku-shrub (talk) 05:55, 2 December 2015 (CST)

Its known Physicist Stephen Hawking an likely Anti-future Technosceptic and Social Darwinist?

Since I heard that Stephen Hawking is not just againist AI technology annouce last few months ago, Put many forms of other [bio]technologies like Genetic engineering, Nuclear energy and etcs. It make me wonder if this guy is Technosceptic depsite being member of Labour Party.[1] In mean I think this guy could sound hypocritical due of his Physical and Verbal disablity and his Wheelchair with voice translator are probably closest thing to be proto-Cyborg is make me like that right now. Chad The First Biofurry Humanoid (talk) 15:34, 20 January 2016 (CST)

Being concerned about AI is a form of technoconservatism, not technoscepticism. I want to write some page called something like AI risk advocates and list prominent people who hold this position in the future. Deku-shrub (talk) 17:42, 20 January 2016 (CST)
Ok, Put I only refer Stephen Hawking an theoretical physicist, cosmologist and head director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge as "Super"-Technoconservative due he now fully admitted anti-science and anti-technology for future in he announced even despite his disable state is really for now its robotic voice as way to speak. Chad The First Biofurry Humanoid (talk) 19:54, 20 January 2016 (CST)
I don't think all forms of technoconservatism are anti-science. Often they ignore our current economic momentum, preferring to object to rather than shape the future. But sometimes some people will feel compelled to make a stand. I campaign for privacy, not because I am anti technology but because I'm concerned about its continued misuse for example. Deku-shrub (talk) 19:05, 20 January 2016 (CST)

Renamed it later

In next day or two, I will planned need expended to incuded more Anti-GMO examples besides GMF's like somehow Eugenics involvment supposedly from Anti-GMO centre and some ether Left-wing and Right-wing activists on Genetically modified humans for few things (Cloning human from Pre-existing Human DNA, Self-Mutation of more commonly dangers, etc.) Chad The First Biofurry Humanoid (talk) 14:03, 21 January 2016 (CST)

See my response on Talk:Opposition_to_genetically_modified_food Deku-shrub (talk) 13:06, 21 January 2016 (CST)

K, I think you just moved that section to Transhumanist Wager page as plot section

I, Just looked what you doing that section is already deleted put right now, I got thinking already plan to moved all it into The Transhumanist Wager as plot section. Its really ok for you? Or not? Chad The First Biofurry Humanoid (talk) 15:56, 4 February 2016 (CST)

Definitely, the plot needs fleshing out. I actually own it but have not got past the first chapter as I didn't enjoy it! This relates to the comments I've been making, you've often added tangential summaries about the relationship with some other page, where adding the information to the main page and a shorter summery would be preferable :) Deku-shrub (talk) 15:19, 4 February 2016 (CST)


Description of the article.

Transhumanism (. English transhumanism; sometimes referred to as> H or H +) - modern philosophical movement, which is based on the assumption that man is the last link of evolution, and therefore, can be improved indefinitely. What is described in the article has to do with it, it's a whole new philosophical direction in art because people improved. That, as futurism, it is really a futuristic computer art, to futurism is also a relationship. In ancient times, people are portrayed in icons such phenomena in order to warn people that there are angels in the heavenly chariot, that is, so they showed the future, and also relates to the floor futurism. The entire article is related to futurism and transhumanism. In the article a lot of philosophical trends.Welix8 (talk)

What you doing undo my editions in UK politics page

Those edits are technically necessary of what's happening in your country recent election for summaries. And claiming it's unnecessary for not even related to futurism. -- Chad The First Biofurry Humanoid (talk)12:43, 14 June 2017 (CDT)

There's no point tracking this level of UK politics except where it pertains to the intersection with futurism. Also your wording wasn't very neutral and therefore I felt it detracted from the article. You can make the case H+Pedia should be a left wing general politics wiki first if you want to, but I doubt you'll have much support. Deku-shrub (talk) 08:55, 17 June 2017 (CDT)
Thanks for understanding more clearly. -- Chad The First Biofurry Humanoid (talk)13:16, 17 June 2017 (CDT)

H+Pedia mentioned in the media

Don't know if you saw this: [1]. (I stumbled upon the article while browsing Anders Sandberg's twitter page.) Ignoranceprior (talk) 20:52, 11 July 2017 (CDT)

So which paragraph where it says that? Chad The Humanoid-GoatMan (talk) 21:07, 11 July 2017 (CDT)
This paragraph:

[Mark O'Connell] remarks that the movement is ‘fringe, but at the same time quite central in Silicon Valley’, and suggests that Peter Thiel, the PayPal co-founder and Facebook’s first professional investor, worth an estimated $2.7 billion by Forbes, is one of a number of “de facto transhumanists”.
That list includes fellow tech billionaires and luminaries Elon Musk, of Tesla Inc. and SpaceX fame, Google co-founder Sergey Brin, and – according to H+Pedia (an online resource that aims to ‘spread accurate, accessible, non-sensational information about transhumanism’) – Facebook’s increasingly tech-obsessed CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

That said, I think Peter Thiel's transhumanist status is more than "de facto". Ignoranceprior (talk) 21:19, 11 July 2017 (CDT)
I saw a similar article that picked up this same point. Added a place to track these mentions here Deku-shrub (talk) 07:45, 12 July 2017 (CDT)

Template test

Hi Deku-shrub,

I temporarily added two of the new articles to Template:Featured as instructed on the Community portal—as much for testing as for anything else. I'm not sure how long it's been since there's been an update on the rotation cue, but with your approval, I'll leave them in the stack.

The one thing I haven't figured out yet is template placement on the featured page. It aligns right, which, when outside of an infobox, or table, creates an entirely new column and looks askew. Nesting it inside the first row of the infobox solves the problem, but it still ignores the span "text-align=center" designator, hugging the right side of the page. I'm not sure if you might have some idea on how to override?

Minor point: If I recall my grammar teachers correctly, the template should read an H+Pedia featured article, rather than a H+Pedia featured article. Feel free to trout me if I'm wrong.

If there's anywhere in particular you need some work done, I've got my construction hat on. Just point me in the right direction. Otherwise I'll continue on down the list for expansion.

Thanks again!

– Cheers,

Thanks for the featured articles. To be honest, we could probably have about ~50 in there, but they would require identification and summaries writing so I can't be bothered right now. :) I'm not sure where you're having the templating issue, can you link more specifically? I should be able to sort it out. Where's the a/an issue and I'll likely fix it.
With regards to future work, I'll answer on your talk page :) Deku-shrub (talk) 15:26, 7 March 2018 (CST)

Extended, autoconfirmed, pagemover, rollback, autopatrolled, pending changes, etc.

Hi Deku-shrub, Are there any further available user rights I might request here that would facilitate my participation in continuing site improvement? I'm specifically thinking of Wikipedia's autoconfirmed, extended and pagemover user categories—in particular, so as not to have to answer the spam check question every time I'm including external links (How many fingers does a hand have without a thumb?)—and the like. Mahalo! – Babelfish (talk) 08:32, 5 April 2018 (CDT)

I didn't realise users were having to put up with this. Yep, I need to create a more trusted user group to bypass this, definately Deku-shrub (talk) 13:38, 5 April 2018 (CDT)

Server ping time

At first I thought this was just me, but I've now noticed it from several computers at independent locations. It seems like the server for has an exceedingly long delay before its response—several times I've encountered timeout errors. Do you have any idea as to a possible explanation? Thanks! Babelfish (talk) 04:38, 18 April 2018 (CDT)

I have noticed it on occasion. We're on relatively low-end shared LAMP hosting, I've had an odd blip before. It wouldn't be too much hassle to move since I've recently upgraded and have confidence in the site's robustness, but I don't see it as priority right now Deku-shrub (talk) 13:18, 18 April 2018 (CDT)
Thanks. Keep me posted whenever you get the chance. It's mostly annoying when you've spent quite a bit of time editing an article, then submit it for publication, only to receive the timeout error and lose all of your work. I've been careful to copy and paste prior to submitting now, but other users might have the same problem. Cheers, Babelfish (talk) 18:37, 18 April 2018 (CDT)

Aaron Traywick nomination for Wikipedia In the News

You might want to voice your comments here. Babelfish (talk) 03:24, 4 May 2018 (CDT)

Update: The article has been approved and is now posted to Wikipedia's front page under section In the news. Note both external links direct here. — Babelfish (talk) 03:46, 4 May 2018 (CDT)
Thanks for bringing this up. As far as a I was aware, external links are never allowed to be wikis on Wikipedia, as such links to H+Pedia (other than e.g. the home page) can never be used. It might be worth reviewing if this is the case through Deku-shrub (talk) 06:46, 5 May 2018 (CDT)
Due to their user-contributed nature and not being necessarily a reliable source, Wikis aren't allowed as citations—but in absence of an official homepage I thought it was acceptable as an external link, so long as it's not there to back up any of the data presented. In either case, the H+Pedia article was created first, and the external link at bottom of the page points to the Aaron Traywick article here. If it's not formally allowed, someone might eventually change it. Then again, it's at the bottom of the page, so it could have slipped by the censors. I'll look a little further into official policy. Cheers, Babelfish (talk) 08:18, 5 May 2018 (CDT)
Reasonable to leave it there for now, but there shouldn't be a systemic effort to add H+Pedia links to Wikipedia against policy Deku-shrub (talk) 08:20, 5 May 2018 (CDT)
Sure thing. The rationale for this solitary example pointing here is because the initial seed of the Wikipedia article was copied directly from the H+Pedia article (since expanding this one out to 6k+bytes, with the Wikipedia copy now at 16k+bytes, mostly refs that I haven't yet manually imported). Aside from that, the H+Pedia article has a photo—which I haven't yet sourced for Wikipedia—and Traywick was a prominent member of the transhumanist community. In absence of having an official homepage, it seemed like a reasonable enough choice. Babelfish (talk) 08:33, 5 May 2018 (CDT)
From Wikipedia-favicon.png WP:External links on Wikipedia, external links to Wikimedia sister projects are okay; links to other open wikis are “normally” to be avoided “unless they have a substantial history of stability,” a subjective measure. As the article text was sourced to here and the site seems stable enough, I'll leave it in absence of objection. Babelfish (talk) 08:57, 5 May 2018 (CDT)
Do you know if the licensing status of the photo in use on the local copy of the article is suitable for upload to Wikipedia? Thanks, Babelfish (talk) 13:24, 5 May 2018 (CDT)
You'll need permission. Try email or tweeting who took it. It's implied that it wasn't taken from them, so they may not have copyright. This one will be a pain to hunt down to Wikipedia's standards. You might be better tracking a different image with a more obvious copyright owner to ask them. Remember, copyright is owned by the photographer, not the subject. Deku-shrub (talk) 15:00, 5 May 2018 (CDT)
One of his relatives sent thanks and is forwarding a photo. Babelfish (talk) 22:03, 6 May 2018 (CDT)
Great job! Deku-shrub (talk) 05:51, 7 May 2018 (CDT)
Thanks. I wrote both to relatives and to Julia Airey, reporter from Babelfish (talk) 09:46, 7 May 2018 (CDT)

José Rafael Cordero Sánchez

Hi! I would like to request a deletion of the José Rafael Cordero Sanchez article. José Rafael is a long term vandal that has published his autobiography everywhere he could have since 2011, costing many volunteers' time. In this wiki, he has done the same in a promotion attempt. For more info, see the discussion in Wikipedia. --Jamez42 (talk) 23:41, 13 June 2018 (CDT)

Thanks, wouldn't have worked that out without the tip-off, deleted! Deku-shrub (talk) 09:48, 14 June 2018 (CDT)
Thank you! I'd suggest deleting the picture too, sorry that I forgot to link it! --Jamez42 (talk) 16:57, 14 June 2018 (CDT)
Cheers, wouldn't have done so if you'd not pointed it out :) Deku-shrub (talk) 17:35, 14 June 2018 (CDT)

An issue with Better Humans and Better Humans (website) Pages

I was updating the Florida Better Humans /Betterhumans Inc. organization and I let James know on LinkedIn and he sent me this message: Thanks for updating the H+Pedia page. There are other groups that call themselves "Better Humans" (two words) but we've used the brand Betterhumans (one word, "h" not capitalized) since around 2006. Instead of a redirect can you please change the Title of the Page. Thanks.--Dalton Murray (talk) 12:10, 30 October 2018 (CDT)

Question on how to approach titles for new pages in Category:Transpolitica, and what about those red links.

Hi Chris, I'm unsure of how to title these Chapters and subchapter data, Democracy and Inclusion has a capital I and that's incorrect it should be a little i. Liquid Democracy should also be a little d and I'm not sure if I know how to do redirects. I just put up a new page I’m working on with the title Chapter 1. "Vision and roadmap" and I don't know -what do you think is better? or do you have a different way that I should be doing this maybe? Thanks. Or maybe I should stay out of this category until I'm more knowledgeable about politics, do you think I should just go back to turning the red links blue? I have a plan to do another group of 100 red links wanted Pages that I was going to start next Monday the 28th? Peace.--Dalton Murray (talk) 12:14, 20 January 2019 (CST)
