Wikipedia:Kick the ass of anyone who renominates GNAA for deletion before 2007

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The renomination of the article Gay Nigger Association of America for deletion causes unnecessary disruption every time it repeats. Those who want it gone argue that it is a waste of bits and glorifies a bunch of worthless vandals. Those who want it kept say it describes a noteworthy internet organization. People who are sick of the whole thing are either ignoring it, or in many cases voting to keep just because they feel that the ideals of fair play have been violated.

Thus, this policy has been proposed. The wording is tongue-in-cheek, but the intent is serious.

Should the article be renominated for deletion, the following actions should be taken:

  1. Remove the listing from VfD
  2. Untag the article
  3. Inform the nominator of this policy

And should they persist in their attempt at renomination: kick their ass. Suggested alternate consequences include public flogging, tarring and feathering, or crushing by elephant.

(Further actions might be: c2:SignificantEmotionalEvent, or c2:ParkingLotTherapy)

The policy has an inbuilt expiry of 00:00 UTC January 1, 2007. While many have proposed a permanent ban on renominating the article, few decisions on Wikipedia should ever be final and immutable. Existing "gentlemen's agreements" of having six months between nominations have proven insufficient. The chosen date is just under 18 months from the date of this proposal, and is easy to remember.

Supporting this policy does not constitute a statement that one belives the article should exist, or that the GNAA deserves commendation or whatever the hell it is that they want. It merely means you're sick of the amount of time being wasted on the whole thing and want a reprieve.

Supporting this policy also does not state that one thinks the article should be renominated for deletion in 2007.

    I worry when a member of ArbCom makes comments like this, even in a joking manner. I seriously worry that it leads to chilling effects. -- Seth Ilys 02:32, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
    Oh, please. Everybody knows David Gerard is a smelly old codger. I don't see him chilling anyone. Now I'm tempted to actually take it to the ArbCom. Except that that would be POINTless. JRM · Talk 17:08, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
    Ass-kicking is not in fact implemented in MediaWiki 1.5, although I think the option to send five hundred volts through the editor's chair the moment they make their fourth revert in 24 hours is on the list for 1.6. I also want biometric samples taken before allowing editing, but someone said this was "unwiki" or some such foolishness - David Gerard 11:16, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

    Note that my proposal at Wikipedia:VfD renomination limits has been replaced by something completely different then the proposal I mention above (my proposal was basically a hard limit of 4 rounds of VfDs). Thanks,

  1. Well, we could succeed eventually, and probably would have done the second time if the sockpuppet votes had been ignored and people had not voted against because it had dubiously passed the first time. Ambi 01:51, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    Now that the VFD mess is over, now we can probably start the search to find out what is legit or not. Zscout370 (Sound Off) 01:52, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    The numerous renominations have doomed future attempts to failure. By waiting, a chance of success may return. -- Cyrius| 02:22, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    The VfD is now valid. NO SOCK PUPPETS were allowed in attempt 6! - Ta bu shi da yu 23:43, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
  2. Renomination isn't the problem, it's the amount of times it happens. I would prefer a cap on the amount of times something can be nominated within a certain time limit. Allow future nominations and assume good faith on the part of the nominator if they bring good reasoning to the table. Don't kick their ass. - Mgm|(talk) 08:06, July 15, 2005 (UTC)
    So... if someone ignores the enormous talk page dissertation and the fact that Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Gay Nigger Association of America already exists, they should still be allowed to go ahead with a nomination? Hm. GarrettTalk 10:15, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    Thus we prevent people from renominating in the near term by kicking their asses. -- Cyrius| 15:49, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
  3. --Jacj 12:21, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    For these reasons:
    • The number of renominations isn't so much a problem as the frequency of renomination.
    • Having the article put on VfD only explodes in a massive drama-bomb because we allow it to. Let's be serious; how can having a particular entry being put on VfD once every six months be a substantial source of disruption? Because lots of Wikipedians take it upon themselves to jump into the fray and get wound up.
    • It assumes automatic bad faith on the part of a nominee. Notice that when it was a new user who put the GNAA up for VfD a 5th time, it was automatically assumed that it was a "sockpuppet" and that this invalidated the VfD. WTF? Surely the validity of a VfD rests upon the quality of the article it refers to? What difference does it make if a VfD is raised by a new user, a veteran, or an administrator?
    This is intented to force a reprieve from the frequent renominations through application of blunt force. By allowing more time for everyone to cool down, future renominations have the potential to go more smoothly. -- Cyrius| 15:49, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
  4. Every article should be regularly taken to VfD because it provides a form of useful peer review. And yes, I do also support most of the current CSD proposals so I'm making space for this. <ducks quickly>. -Splash 16:04, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    Terrible reasoning. The purpose of VfD is to determine whether an aricle should be deleted. Have the VfD tag on the article implies that it might not be kosher - when in fact it has been voted on 6 times. - Ta bu shi da yu 23:43, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    Deletionist. The purpose of VfD is to decide whether an article should be deleted or kept (and I vote delete more than I vote keep, too). It is to determine whether it (still) meets the WP standards for inclusion. These are necessarily evolutionary and things that were notable once might fall below some hypothetical new threshold or be invalidated in the light of prgress in the relevant field. We could just retitle the process and rephrase the template: Articles for Review (AfR) or something...oh, and find about 200 more people to close the results. -Splash 03:02, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
  5. I would support this proposal were it under a more sensible name. Yes, I have read the comments below about taking ourselves too seriously (feel free to laugh at me). But there's a place for humour in WP, and this isn't it - this issue is too important. OpenToppedBus - My Talk 16:38, July 15, 2005 (UTC)
    I have given an alternative title for the page, but it looks like to me it is staying put. Zscout370 (Sound Off) 19:54, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    Thanks for judging the title instead of the content. The issue isn't serious, it's just annoying. -- Cyrius| 20:02, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    The title is part of the content. OpenToppedBus - My Talk 08:33, July 18, 2005 (UTC)
  6. This whole page is troll food and just as disruptive as the nominations are. Let it go already. --Tabor 19:46, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    Troll food is continually renominating the stupid article for deletion. The only disruption I see is people getting a laugh out of the phrasing. -- Cyrius| 20:02, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    Dsiruptive to whom? Why, to the trolls I believe. We're takin' it back :-) Ta bu shi da yu 23:43, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
    Degree of disruption from this page = degree of disruption by VfD noms ... which is to say, neither is a terribly big deal. This is not solving an important problem ... it's just a continuation of the same nonsense. This page is just more trolling of a slightly different flavor. --Tabor 18:36, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
  7. Why am I even dignifying this escalation of the GNAA battle with a response? Common decency suggests that we should be above the level of policy proposals with "Kick [someone's] ass" in their title - that's GNAA level shallowness, folks. Maybe we have descended into mob rule, but on the hope of sanity, Oppose. And besides which, dudes, m:PAE, m:ICK, WP:CIV and WP:DICK. YHBT. YHL. HAND. DNFTEC. -- Seth Ilys 01:27, 16 July 2005 (UTC)

    Several people who dislike the article have voted for this proposal; they're also sick of the constant VfDs, which basically make no sense, and - if anything - get people to vote Keep out of spite (source: me). The outcome is always keep. There's no point in doing another VfD so soon after a "Keep" outcome has been given. Also, Wikipedia has other articles on trolls; e.g. Klerck, which has had one VfD. The outcome was keep. It's not been VfDd again. Why GNAA all the time? --Dave2 23:07, 17 July 2005 (UTC)
    Perhaps clueless newbies, vandals, trolls and other people put this article up for deletion, though we have all of those votes. Plus, a lot can change in the next few years, yet alone the next few months. Zscout370 (Sound Off) 23:50, 17 July 2005 (UTC)
    ok.... Just protect articles in question. You do not generate god damn wiki rules for a spesific article like this. I would love to mark this page as {{nonsense}}. Oh wait I just did. Cat chi? 03:39, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

  1. "Kick the ass"? Is that the most you can do? Tougher punishments damn you! Midster 21:17, July 14, 2005 (UTC)
    "Kick their ass" is used in a mainly metaphorical context. The delivery of any kind of blunt force trauma to the perpetrator is acceptable. -- Cyrius| 21:23, 14 July 2005 (UTC)
    I hope 'blunt force trauma' may be applied through mechanical means as well, if not, consider this an opposition! Midster 21:27, July 14, 2005 (UTC)
    Baseball bats, giant mechanical atomic powered ass kicking machines, and similar are acceptable. Firearms and explosives do not qualify. -- Cyrius| 21:40, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

  5. I'd rather see a general policy relating to repeat VFD's. No more than two vfd's every 60 days, or something like that. With "hot articles", people are likely to attempt a vfd until one succeeds, and this behaviour is ridiculous. --Blu Aardvark | (talk) | (contribs) 09:49, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
    The issue of repeat nominations does not come up very often, and this is pretty well the only article where it has become an actual problem. -- Cyrius| 16:39, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
  6. I completely disagree with the principle of putting this to a vote. While holding VfDs too often is wrong, no article should ever be exempt from discussion. So patently silly an article as GNAA especially. --Tony Sidaway|Talk 16:42, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
    I think the gentlemen's agreement that we need to wait 6 months for VFD's might not have worked in this case, thus this is why this is in place. We just had someone put the article up for it's 7th VFD, but it was closed instantly. Zscout370 (Sound Off) 20:22, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
    And nobody notified me? Pshaw!!! >:( Ghost Freeman T | E / C | D 01:49, 18 July 2005 (UTC)
    The details of the individual case aren't that important. We have too many votes, on subjects that are best resolved in a more wikilike manner, and this particular vote seems to me a particularly bad example of that trend. --Tony Sidaway|Talk 05:59, 18 July 2005 (UTC)
    • This proposal would be taken with a healthy dosage of salt. However, what bothers me is that there are now two serious 'official policy proposals' based on this matter. Radiant_>|< 09:19, July 19, 2005 (UTC)
  7. Here's something even more disturbing than this whole proposal: "We just had someone put the article up for it's 7th VFD, but it was closed instantly." Who decided that? My understanding of the reason that being an administrator was that the reason it was "no big deal" was that arbitrary decisions of that nature were not to be made. There is no policy yet about the amount of time between nominations for VfD, so the 7th nomination was just as valid as the 6th. If there is a problem there, unilateral (and effectively untracable) actions aren't the way to solve them. A better policy decision would be about time between nominations overall. And if you think that this only happens with this article, please see Votes for deletion/Maps of Korea and Votes for deletion/Comunleng 2 (where I vent my spleen at great length). - brenneman(t)(c) 03:41, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
    An annon nominated the article for it's seventh deletion at [1]. He was reverted 18 minutes later, before the annon can complete the process. Zscout370 (Sound Off) 03:45, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
    So it's acceptable for you to decide as long as a)The nominator is anonymous, and b)You're fast? That's pretty a thin excuse for making that decision yourself. brenneman(t)(c) 03:55, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
    I didn't do the reverting, I am just reporting on what I saw. (Plus, I still seriously think we should look at the nominators for the past VFD's and see what motivation was behind them. If one sock could create one, I will not be surprised if others did in the past.) Zscout370 (Sound Off) 03:57, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
