Here are my thoughts on retiring from the project. Lots of people want to be admins. The quickest way to become an admin is to delete a lot of stuff. WP:IDONTLIKEIT is, albeit improperly, a fundamental criteria and motivation for many or most items brought up for deletion. Of course this motivation is dressed up in the guise of other guidelines and policies, but, c'mon folks, the patterns are unmistakable.

In the final analysis - why spend time writing stuff so a 12-year-old can get the admin bit 5 years from now for deleting it? Life is too short.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
