Actually, this is true in a lot of places... --Max W. 17:22, 4 September 2006 (MST)
It is. A lot of guys are eerily hot as girls. And better looking as girls as some girls. It's kind of weird to have a guy look way better in your clothes than you do. -Starr
Scarily, this is true. A few guys at LAN.2.2010 looked better as girls than as guys. -Vienna

Concerning the quality of RealCTY articles

When I came here I expected Wikipedia like articles about CTY, not articles filled with what would be called test edits. I would like to propose that we keep all the fandom in the fourums and make this Wiki more serious. Thanks. Marlith 20:57, 17 July 2007 (MST)

Sure, it is fun, but if a person who wanted encyclopedia like info about CTY and came to this site wouldnt they be dissapointed?Marlith
Well, if someone did want good articles they would go to Wikipedia. Marlith 21:07, 17 July 2007 (MST)
I also had a comment about the state of articles here. While perusing the wonders of the "random article" button, I came across quite a few class pages (actually most--or all--of them) that had comments that seemed perfectly suited to the talk page of the particular article, but not to its main text. I would happily undertake the task of moving these comments to talk pages and create more objective articles if it would be something useful to do. Kakofonous 13:19, 23 December 2007 (PST)
Glad to help. Levi Backgammon 10:23, 20 August 2009 (PDT)

How about making a separate section on class pages called "Student Comments"? FJØRKËN

By the way, Schrodem is spelled thusly.

There is a separate Wiki page with encyclopedic information about CTY, this should stay a students' page

Format of Main Page

The link for the list is defunct... Needs a 09:04, 18 June 2012 (PDT) In the interest of clarity, usefulness to newcomers, and organization i suggest making a seperate news page for announcements and leaving the main page solely for welcome and navigation. --Siri

PCTYD has been fixed, and now the notice saying that it's down is misleading. --Lizzy

Yeah, what Lizzy said. -- Kimcheeeee/jackidy/allegra

Except now it's down again. =[ Clcrhiggaeeermo 19:44, 20 February 2008 (PST)

What exactly happened to it? --LordZeebmork 15:24, 21 February 2008 (PST)

It's still down. Anyone know what's up? - Fred3426 17:48, 23 Feb. 2008 (EST)

Never mind, it's back. We hit some turbulence. Clcrhiggaeeermo 18:36, 23 February 2008 (PST)

And now it's down again. - Jimmy 12:53, 13 Mar. 2008 (EST)

  • Nevermind. - Same

It's down again. --Lietk12 15:13, 29 April 2008 (PDT)

Down again, or at least getting 403 forbidden when I try to go there. Twoshotted 12:26, 2 May 2008 (PDT)

It's down again again. I'm getting the same thing as ^.--Allegra

This is silly. PCTYDers will put the status of the forum right here:
--Pink Lizzy 18:21, 30 July 2008 (PDT)

To an admin (that knows what he/she is doing with pages): If I (a.k.a. my dad) were to make a Python script to check the status of PCTYD, would it be possible to run the script on certain page? I don't know enough about MediaWiki. --Fafnirical 20:26, 20 October 2008 (EDT)

PCTYD is currently Moving to a New Host

The hosting company is moving (physically) all of their servers and hosting accounts to a new location in Fremont, CA. So PCTYD is down until they finish moving, but they have assured me that they'll be done Very, Very Soon. Rawr. --Clcrhiggaeeermo 17:57, 13 October 2008 (PDT)
As of now, PCTYD seems to be working fine. -FJØRKËN 14:40, 14 October 2008 (PDT)
False. That was probably your cache. --Clcrhiggaeeermo 12:47, 15 October 2008 (PDT) went from a 503, to working, then back to a 503 today. -FJØRKËN 15:24, 15 October 2008 (PDT) It's down, but it was working yesterday. So idk what's going on. -Jallegra
It works now. - Marnie It's back up for me. -FJØRKËN


Internal server error? What? - Marnie

According to something I heard from Charlie a while ago, he wants to move to a different server, which is why PCTYD is down. So it is no longer "mostly harmless" and if this could be changed on the RealCTY mainpage, it would get the word out so people stop freaking. --Pink Lizzy 15:14, 11 March 2010 (PST)

Well, the explanation is good, so I'm not freaking out quite as much as before. Any info on around when the server move will be completed (if thats something that can be predicted)? - Dan

I'd ask Charlie... --Pink Lizzy 18:19, 14 March 2010 (PDT)

Hi. I don't know if this is the place to put this, But i really think that Baltimore should be moved above LOU, since it's LITERALLY a dead site and nobody goes there anymore. I feel that /at least/ the sites that are still running should be put above the dead ones. i mean, St. Mary's isn't above like, lancaster, or something, you know? Just a thought.--Allegra

This is true. Information about defunct sites stays online, but isn't updated and isn't part of the "site order." LOU has been removed from the list, and should be moved to the bottom of any articles with site-specific content. --Max W. 12:04, 20 July 2010 (PDT)

The website is completely down and inaccessible, and I'm pretty sure it hasn't taken 10 years for it to move to a new host. Someone fix this or tell me how to. --Ben K. 9:56, 14 July 2018 (EST)

I saw that too, last I saw it said the domain was for sale. Anyone know what's going on? --Anouk

We took PCTYD offline for good sometime around 2010-2012. (I searched my inbox to find an exact date, no luck.) The domain expired in 2013 and expired in 2014. ----Charlie 18:50, 16 December 2020 (PST)

On Wikipedia?

Just an idea that I had...I've noticed that quite a few of the users here are also on Wikipedia, and thought it might be a worthwhile project getting CTY to featured article status. Please add your ideas and responses below. Kakofonous 12:31, 30 December 2007 (PST)

Yeah that's a good idea, how? If it evolved editing the article, however, I don't know what we can add. In addition, I created some CTY User boxes for the wikipedia user pages. They are at this page --> [1] If you want to put these in you user page, just copy and paste the code into your user page.

-Firefly1029 20:29, 30 December 2007 (PST)

^^ They got archived, so I fixed the link. =D Clcrhiggaeeermo 21:13, 1 March 2008 (PST)

Could start by editing language to a more encyclopedic style. Levi Backgammon 10:25, 20 August 2009 (PDT)


It would be cool to have a countdown to the beginning of Sessions one and two on the front page. Firefly1029 17:12, 16 June 2008 (PDT)

Max, it's, not .org as it says in the email address you have posted. Clcrhiggaeeermo 17:37, 9 August 2008 (PDT)


It would be nice if there was an article about the song Sandstorm in the music section... Astrostar2 13:32, 26 August 2008 (PDT)

Then make one. =) That's why it's a wiki. -FJØRKËN

How do you make a new page? Never mind. Figured it out =)--The Minion Master


Hello! It would be great if we can have nice Infoboxes, like Wikipedia does. As of now, ATM has copied the LUA code from Wikipedia, so we can make simple, hardcoded Infoboxes such as the one on Corey's article. But, I think that it would be great if we could have nice infoboxes. A (talk) 10:07, 19 July 2015 (PDT)


We should have Wikilove on this Wiki. Just like Wikipedia does =)

Add Discords to main page

Can we add these two discords to the main page? (Official one made by nomores,nevermores and forevermores) Another server

CTY YouTube to mainpage

Can we add the CTY official YouTube and the Iris documenter (LAN video records) to the main page? There's also now an "Iris Duckumentator" YouTube channel that was created post-covid when something happened to the account credentials. It's up and running and I think it could use a shout out -Switch [2]

Does anyone know Chris Wu?

Chris Wu was an RA at Lancaster 1998-2001. Does anyone know how to get in touch with him? I would be greatly interested. Thanks - TheDAN

I know who he is

Go Greyhounds!

Essay suggestion

can we add this open essay to the main page?
