RETIRED
This user is no longer active on Wikipedia.

After having been on Wikipedia for six months, I have to say I find this a very depressing and toxic place. Users such as GabeMc, Drmies, and indopug have assumed bad faith, acted very rudely, have been generally incivil and have caused harassment. However, because they are more experienced, they are given a free pass and are in a higher class than us new users. To them I merely say good riddance! Now, other users such as Binksternet and Solarra have been very kind and polite - the way wikipedians should be - and for that I am forever grateful!

Anyways, a final message to any Wikipedians who will listen: a change is needed at Wikipedia. I understand that rules and policies are needed for guidelines. However, these have gotten out of hand on Wikipedia and are threatening to strangle its purpose as a "free encyclopedia". I am not asking for no rules at all. Rather, I am merely saying to scale back a bit, so that new users (like me) won't find the task of becoming a Wikipedian so daunting! I have seen in the news in the past couple of years that Wikipedia is now rapidly becoming an encyclopedia edited by few people. Most new users are turned off by all these rules, which is why fewer and fewer new accounts are being created. This is dangerous and I suspect that in a few more years Wikipedia will only be composed of a "skeleton" of users to sustain it. Anyhow, I am officially done with Wikipedia! I have changed my password to something random which I will be unable to remember. I know I reneged on my initial retirement notice, but this time, I am sure of it! My two other accounts are done as well, and as soon as I finish this post, I will log out for good. Goodbye! Twyfan714 (talk) 03:20, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Run of the Mill (Judas Priest song), you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Heavy metal and John Hinch (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
