I attempted to import an article from to adopt to this wiki (importing includes the editing history so everyone gets listed in the credits). Unfortunately, I accidentally imported an entire category, Category:Cabals. I deleted articles not needed here (the originals remain at the Discordian Wiki), but some I deleted seem to have reappeared. With others that can stay, there are missing images. I would appreciate any assistance in bringing in images and pointing out any errors you see. Pope Hilde (talk) 21:14, July 28, 2015 (UTC)

I can help with images but I'm not sure which articles you wanted here. Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 22:29, July 28, 2015 (UTC)
Here's articles in that category I don't think we need.
  1. The Concordia Movement
  2. Chaostic Taber-Nickle of Discordia
  3. KGB3
  4. Norton Cabal
  5. Order of Accendo
  6. Order of Shamlicht
  7. Mythics of Harmonia
  8. Rosenteeth Commune
  9. Society for Creative Anachronism
  10. Category:Mythics of Harmonia--I blanked this.
I can't delete the others as I'm not an admin. :) Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 01:35, July 29, 2015 (UTC)
I know usually we might wait for a consensus but like you said copying them here was a mistake. I think the others can be useful here if changed to fit SubGenii. Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 01:36, July 29, 2015 (UTC)
I deleted them again. Maybe they'll stay gone this time. (But they're still on Discordia Wiki). Pope Hilde (talk) 13:36, July 29, 2015 (UTC)
More articles that belong on Discordia Wiki but maybe not here that got imported:
  1. The Ancient Illuminated Seers of Bavaria
  2. The Church of the Astral Delicatessen
  3. The Hidden Temple of The Happy Jesus
  4. The Order
  5. Terrorists for Truth
  6. Uncyclopedia
  7. Unified Catholic Church
  8. W.E.T.D.I.A.P.E.R.S.
Some of these, like maybe Terrorists for Truth, could be rewritten for this site but huffed as is. Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 02:39, July 30, 2015 (UTC)
I removed them all except Terrorists for Truth. Thanks for your suggestions. Pope Hilde (talk) 16:37, July 30, 2015 (UTC)

Importing in wikia is kinda weak. Please do kill the TfT oh mighty admin as that's all Discordian.  Jzp-wikia (talk) 19:00, August 1, 2015 (UTC)

Since you alll are strangely rules-bound and wiki formalists for Discordians, I tagged a couoplde more of these horrible improts to be deleted using all the BS formality. Feedback in a ay please else I'll kill them as best I can. Jzp-wikia (talk) 20:40, August 1, 2015 (UTC)
Can you give an opinion without resorting to insults and calling my writing horrible? I've been editing wikis since I was 13 and I've had articles chosen as feature articles. I don't like a lot of Wikia's rules. Have you seen my arguments with staff? But people working together on a wiki is not some stupid rule it's how Wikis work. Uncyclopedia split in two because people didn't want to follow the rules. Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 03:35, August 2, 2015 (UTC)
Where's I call your writing horrible? I did call out a load of minor edits (eg, single word or sentence in a row) to boost edit count & badges, but that's not calling it "horrible". The imports are horrible because forklifting from one sect to another is the least creative thing possible. I have no care about arguments or politics on this platform, I just do care if the thing here named "SubGenius" doesn't actually reflect the Church of the SubGenius.

I also had the impression you were calling the writing horrible in your comments above. Thank you for explaining that is not what you meant. Can I assume that when you accused an editor of "copying crap" that you were also referring to the act of importing and not the article itself? If so, you might have said you thought the act of copying was crap, not that it was crap that was copied. Pope Hilde (talk) 16:41, August 3, 2015 (UTC)
The use of "crap" is as in "junk" or "stuff", with no value judgement. --Jzp-wikia (talk) 05:37, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
Hilde wants us to shake hands and make up. OK here's my hand. Just don't bite it! Not too hard. :) Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 01:19, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure what there is to "make up". I'm still skeptical that you two aren't the same person. Where's your membership card? --Jzp-wikia (talk) 05:37, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
