The inability of this site to improve its own governance is appalling.




Santorum[edit]

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![edit]

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)

Wikipediocracy[edit]

In the aftermath of the spontaneous meltdown of Wikipedia Review, a new site was formed with similar principles.

Wikipediocracy

A new kid on the block—a place for discussing Wikipedia in a way you can't anywhere else. Many familiar faces. Different atmosphere.

Welcome back[edit]

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!! -- KeithbobTalk 15:07, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Keith! StaniStani  22:15, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
