hi! :) thanks for the welcome :) Tsunamic 14:58, 30 Sep 2004 (CDT)

Main page[edit]

Main page needs organizing, but that doesn't mean you should remove all the links in the mean time. --Paragon 11:02, 2 Oct 2004 (CDT)

New Main Page[edit]

Uh, it's all in Russian, and a bit glitchy.
Thx for the welcome. --Paragon 11:16, 2 Oct 2004 (CDT)


I let the old link for Spanish today because the Spanish translator hat to find it! It is no problem to move within the week --Oui 15:51, 5 Oct 2004 (CDT)

Hey there[edit]

Hey there! Glad to be aboard, we'll see how it goes, eh? emeraldimp 23:55, 7 Oct 2004 (CDT)

Please reconsider your appearance theme[edit]

(pasted from discussion on main page...)

I work on user interfaces in my day job, and although I can sympathize with the apparent intent of this visual appearance, if you will take these comments as a constructive criticism - this appearance is a big mistake!

Although it might be an effective gimmick to use a reversed text appearance for the front page, to use this appearance theme globally will make it too difficult to use the site for hours at a time. (I've only read a few pages, and I already have a headache from the harsh appearance of the text - especially on the talk pages.) There is a reason why reversed text is used sparingly - it is simply too tiring to the human eye to look at reversed text for long periods of time.

If you ever want this site to grow beyond an opening statement, into a site with real "legs", you'll inevitably need to use a more sane text color scheme for the bulk of your pages, as serious readers will simply not put up with this look.

Computer screens used to have this appearance a few decades ago, but once it became feasible to show high contrast, black on white text, user interface designers, and later almost all users, quickly abandoned the bizarre-looking reverse text appearance en masse, and this apperance has now faded into obscurity. These days you only see this scheme in odd places - point of sale terminals used in discount stores, or in military installations that are stuck on the macho green on black thing. :)

Please, more serious discussion and articles, and fewer gimmicks with the appearance. You've got a great start here on an alternative to Wikipedia, so please don't turn away your potential audience because of a gimmicky design that makes it tiring to read your text! -- 13:11, 7 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • I am not designer and I would like not to work on user interface. Also, here are some notes: --Millosh 14:30, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    1. Maybe I am not like others, but it is more easy for me to read white letter at black background. Of course, faction of Unix admins is not relevant part of community :) --Millosh 14:30, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    2. All users can change their skins. The question is only default and we can vote about default (I will vote for usual colors (black letter, white background or something like that) because of your reasons; as well as I will use this (inverse) skin for myself :) But, we should see what others think.). --Millosh 14:30, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    3. I'll make virtual host "" where you (and others) can test design. --Millosh 14:30, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    4. Also, it seems that you didn't log in and I don't know who you are. And I would like to know :) Of course, if you don't prefer to work anonymously. --Millosh 14:30, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    5. And, the most important thing: This is anarchist project. I started it, but I am not the only who is making decisions. Decisions are made by all of users. So, I think we should move this talk to: Anarchopedia:en:Design. --Millosh 14:33, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    6. Also, I didn't see that anyone is designer here. I think you should have initiative about that questions. --Millosh 14:34, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I think #2 is the important one. We already can choose whatever skins we want. If I didn't like Anarchopedia's design, I would have changed it already. As far as what the default should look like, I don't really have an opinion. Lance Murdoch 01:41, 9 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I understand that default is important for new users. (New users maybe don't know how to change skin; maybe they are too lazy to change it; etc.) Also, in this moment we have only A-Monobook style; we don't have original Monobook (or we don't have usable original Monobook). So, we should think about what new users like to see. (As I said, it seems that I am not so relevant: White letters with black background is easy to read for me.) If competent person says that it is obsolate, we should take care about it. --Millosh 03:34, 9 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Meta Question[edit]

Pray tell, what goes in the meta. and what goes in the eng.? The factions are currently all in the meta, but is this merely because they haven't been moved yet? Or is the meta a repository of things that are administrational in nature? --Anni 10:30, 5 Jan 2005 (JAP)

I think that Meta should be repository of things that are administrational in nature. I don't have an idea should it be copied on eng: or not. Do you think that it should be done in some other way? Btw, you are from Japan? Do you want Anarchopedia in Japanese language? :) --Milos Rancic 19:45, 4 Jan 2005 (CST)
No, from Norway. But I wouldn't mind doing it in Norwegian, perhaps. Regardlessy, I have some ideas regarding factions, that might be fun? Tell me if you care.. --Anni 00:31, 5 Jan 2005 (CST)
It's OK :) The idea about factions came from trolls. Almost all of texts about factions are written by some of them. And it became the part of Anarchopedia's identity. Also, all of contributors works on the Anarchopedia's identity. And I don't see any problem if all of us are writting about Anarchopedia's identity. --Milos Rancic 06:06, 5 Jan 2005 (CST)
And about Japan: I don't know why system said that you are in JAP time zone... --Milos Rancic 06:06, 5 Jan 2005 (CST)
I am a Norwegian, currently living in Japan :)
Also, what I meant for the factions was making them actual administrative (political?) units, where every user is assosiated with a faction and it's points of view, and Site-Wide political questions are decided using free voting on suggestions proposed by the factions. I'm gonna write a better explanation in the factions talkspace. --Anni 07:35, 5 Jan 2005 (CST)
And while I'm at it, is case sensitivity really necessary? --Anni 07:36, 5 Jan 2005 (CST)
Factions Question/Propsal here.


I miss a control for moving easily from one page in the meta or eng to the corresponding page on the other side. Would it be impossible to add a widget (say, under the toolbox) "This page in:" (meta, eng, fra, spa, deu). For easy jumping and editing. Is that your boat? --Anni 02:22, 5 Jan 2005 (CST)

See Anarchopedia:eng:Syndicate --Milos Rancic 06:12, 5 Jan 2005 (CST)

Logo vote[edit]

Hey Milo, I was thinking it might be a good idea to copy the news item regarding the logo vote from meta to eng, deu, etc. Christiaan 16:01, 25 Jan 2005 (CST)

Yes, it is good idea and you don't need to ask to copy :) --Milos Rancic 06:55, 26 Jan 2005 (CST)

Shall we put a closing date on voting for the logo? —Christiaan 16:08, 4 Feb 2005 (CST)

Бонзо свуда Bonzo everywhere[edit]

I agree. Do you want to make it on Anarchopedia server or not? --Milos Rancic 14:07, 16 May 2005 (CDT)

Please, look at Anarchopedia:en:proposal for new project. --Milos Rancic 14:13, 16 May 2005 (CDT)


Hi Milosh,

It's enough. Please Block every access to the server from IP 69.50.#.# . --X 20:50, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)


I've replied. — Xiongtalk 13:57, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

  • please fix database in hrv. or/and redirect it (it's negative promotion if something not works)

greetings X 23:38, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

Russian and me[edit]

Hi, have i lost my priveledges on Russian anarchopedia at some point? If so can you restore me please, there seems to be a lot of vandalism going on there, i've even received complaints of people deleting content. Beta M 13:27, 15 December 2007 (UTC)


Hi. I have copied everything over to .nor now. Could you please unlock the main page on .nor so i can add that to? I don't have sysop status at .nor yet. btw, the main page on .meta should be changed too. Thanks Pyramide 12:46, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Is Anarchopedia only about anarchism ?[edit]

Hi, Millosh. Are you the founder of the Anarchopedia? In the Russian part we argue whether Anarchopedia is devoted only to anarchism. People, who came there earlier, clame that this is so. But it is unclear, who decides whether or not an article has relation to anarchism. Does Anarchopedia imply some hierarchical system of censorship, like that in Wikipedia? Thank you. Dmitry

Addition. I have read many texts here, and it seems to me that I understand the answer: No, Anarchopedia is a universal encyclopedia edited by anarchiсal community. (?) But the problem is that the main page of the Russian section denies this, and it is protected from editing. Dmitry

Anarchopedian International[edit]

I propose this title for the homepage.--K2 14:55, 12 November 2009 (UTC)


Hey guys, want to see some real articles on this website? Check out MetalHeadsRejoice, where you can find some REAL cool articles about comedy, and the music of HEAVY FUCKING METAL!!!!!!! Do it now!

--MetalHeadsRejoice 15:23, 26 July 2010 (UTC)MetalHeadsRejoice


Could you please give me block rights so I can help you stop them? --OOPowerMexicoOo 19:59, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

There is a supposed Nazi-troll in german anarchopedia called "Weiße Feder". Deleting whole articels (Racism, Sexism) and exchanging them with "anarchy has failed/ user xyz is a utopian dreamer". Can you block this guy?

Thank you[edit]

I will keep an eye on recent changes. Btw, isnt there like a spam blacklist where we can add words like "jobs", "weight loss", etc?

doesn't Captcha work anymore ? Libre 12:40, 20 April 2011 (UTC)
ReCaptcha has been broken months ago by spammers and that's the best anti-spam method presently. However, blocking open proxies helps. --Milos Rancic 13:24, 20 April 2011 (UTC)


No sign of spam (pages). However, I still want to block all their proxies for a year or two so they cannot create new accounts, is that Ok?

PS may I ask what (and how) you did that?? --XXPowerMexicoXx 22:12, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

I think that we should continue with 5 years blocks. No matter if they are able or not to create pages, those IPs are open proxies and they are regularly used by spammers. --Milos Rancic 14:06, 3 May 2011 (UTC)
Send me an email (via form on Anarchopedia) and I'll explain what did I do to you. --Milos Rancic 14:06, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Hey Im sorry Idk how to send e-mails here, but I have provided it on my preferences: --XXPowerMexicoXx 20:12, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

interlanguage spam[edit]

i am requesting global sysop rights to deal with spam --XXPowerMexicoXx 23:35, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

I request the sysop right at Portuguese Anarchopedia to deal with spam there --Pernambuco 23:39, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
