Ridiculous article[edit]

Taking into consideration that people who supervise wiki projects (administrators) are not bound by any rules, they can do whatever they like and there are lots of people not suitable for the role, this article is really ridiculous. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.51.238.41 (talk) 12:53, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Be Bold applies to everyone. It's the way to make certain that an edit you propose will be at least considered-- the alternative would have to be "ask permission first' which is worse. As an admin, I feel under a somewhat greater constraint on my boldness than if I were not: I want to make sure I do not try to dominate by the effect of my mere presence. No experienced editor is likely to give me any deference because I'm an admin, but beginners might, and it make me particularly careful. But perhaps there is something particularly you're complaining about. Any admin can make a mistake, & most of them will admit it. If you think you're being unfairly treated, ask someone else to look at the situation. DGG ( talk ) 07:18, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

The index finger[edit]

My dad taught me when I was a child that an inch is the length of the rectangle that appears in the center of our index fingers. For children, this would not be the case, but for adults, I have found that it is almost always the case. I am curious as to why this information is not included in the article.100.1.7.118 (talk) 21:36, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
