-Should we jump?
-Why not. It's Monday. We could wash off the Wikipedia grime from the past week.

Each Monday I am taking a stand against whoever it is who runs this show and doesn't care about editor retention. Along with some others, I am withdrawing my labour every Monday as a reminder that protecting the quality of wikipedia pages isn't possible because volunteers burn out if they try. Please join us. You'll be glad you did.

However, I gathered some data to show that this essay is not the answer. If we take a break or retire from editing, pages do deteriorate, there is no safety net for them. If the central administration doesn't care about editor retention, then there's not much that a few individual editors can do.

Re: your rv on Allotype[edit]

Hi Sminthopsis84. I wasn't aware of this 'rule' - would you be able to link it too me (I'm not doubting its existence, I'm just ignorant of it!)? Regardless, it would seem to better to have holotype wikilinked given that it is a technical term that the majority of readers will be unfamiliar with - what do you think?

Oh, sorry, I should have included that link. See MOS:DABENTRY. I think the text at Allotype is rather more complex than necessary, so I've tried to simplify it, but I don't see a way to link holotype. See what you think. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 17:45, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
