My usual track on Wikipedia was reverting vandalism, light copy editing, looking for BLP problems, and focusing on Wikipedia governance and admin abuse.
In 2011 I became embroiled in a controversy about using Wikipedia as a political attack engine. The consensus by most of the Wiki-warriors was: Go for it! We don't like this guy anyway, so let's help Google define him as feces stains!
This continued right up until Jimbo Wales said: "My only thought about the whole thing is that WP:COATRACK applies in spades. There is zero reason for this page to exist. It is arguable whether this nonsense even belongs in his biography at all, but at a bare minimum, a merger to his main article seems appropriate.--Jimbo Wales (talk) 15:00, 3 June 2011 (UTC)"
What kind of encyclopedia gleefully ignores its own principles until the founder chimes in with advice? A poorly-managed one.
Hello, WP:Battleground Addicts!
Due to recent attempts to shut down my discussion of Wikipedia's problems and the shadowy aims of some editors here, I have unretired. →StaniStani 01:08, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
In the aftermath of the spontaneous meltdown of Wikipedia Review, a new site was formed with similar principles.
A new kid on the block—a place for discussing Wikipedia in a way you can't anywhere else. Many familiar faces. Different atmosphere.
Hey Stani, You probably don't know me from Adam, (as they say) but I've seen you around and was disappointed that you retired. So here is a big fat Welcome Back!! -- — Keithbob • Talk • 15:07, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks Keith! →StaniStani 22:15, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
