Challenges[edit]

June 22, 2018: Transclusion. In Talk:Noah's Ark#Myth vs account or story controversy, it took me more than two and a half hours to figure out how to properly format it, given that initially text was just copied from the help desk to the talk page of Noah's Ark. Initially I was just looking at which way was more proper to indicate that text was "moved". I thought about hatnotes, but I spent a long time analyzing the guideline to see if it was proper use. I figured out that I could use a transclusion hatnote. But soon I got embroiled in finding a way to indicate which text was actually moved, because a new discussion was started. I found out about boxes. But then I realized I would have to actually transclude the text. Which I finally managed to do, transcluding the text. Yay!

Warnings[edit]

Psychological stress
Achtung.svg
This editor has learned from personal experience that controversies in Wikipedia can lead to high levels of stress which can cause in turn severe adverse health effects. This is no different from controversies at work or in other settings although probably less severe because you can always step away from Wikipedia for as long as you want, something you cannot always do at work.
French military intelligence duress

This editor has learned that the French military intelligence coerced with judiciary threats a Wikipedia editor into deleting the Pierre-sur-Haute military radio station article from the French Wikipedia.[1]
