Maybe it depends on the uploader what format they choose, but it's certainly an error to suggest using the app then fail loading it :D

Re: Guy Macon

The actual page has been blanked as a courtesy since Macon's wife logged on to say (via his account) that he had suffered a heart attack. Convenient. In wikiland a failed RfA causes heart attack... Maybe it does. I don't know which one is more reflective of the wikipedia illness: lying about a hear...

Re: Wikipedia's hypocrisy: “…anyone can freely edit…” – Yeah, right!…

My experience with DeltaQuad did it for me. She kept saying that I was "trolling," and that I "was only there to troll the encyclopedia." Well, I guess all my mainspace edits and my !votes on AfDs and RfAs don't mean anything to her. I called her out, next thing I know Oshawa blocks me from my own ...

And Dysk, the reputation of this board was ruined when it started up. Wikipedia asswipers will NEVER show up here for honest debate. They like their little Scientology-style cult website to be free of "actual criticism", of them especially.
They do like it wiped clean...

Re: Block notices only

As our forum is very silent this week, but the Wiki Treehouse server received significant number of comments from our former member, I've proposed him a week's time to post his new model-train creations and what else would come with it...
