Re: Planned website redesign with limited screen width. MASSIVE criticism, even by long-term Wikipedians!

this is pretty much the standard dumb stuff the WMF does. The community asks for an improvement, the WMF drags their feet and eventually releases garbage. The community complains, the WMF tells them to shut up and they all go on.

Re: Users retiring from Wikipedia

oh I'm sure. In the case of Rlevse we were working closely on some projects on commons and when Michael Maggs decided to indef me without discussion, Rlevse never came back.

Re: Users retiring from Wikipedia

I could list a lot that have retired, not all good ones either.

Two I like that left due to bullying directly related to my case:
- Rlevse
- tiptoey

1 that should have been banned.
- bbb23 (only useful thing he's done in a decade).

Re: WMF bans more frequently than ever before.

now they just need to start banning the ones that are the actual problems. Some examples include: anyone who's been on arbcom, anyone who works in the WMF T&S section, beyond my ken, binksternet, beeblebrox, floquenbeam, etc.

Re: WMF bans more frequently than ever before.

I'm actually considering submitting an unban request to the WMF myself once it starts. Not that I think it'll get approved. But it will givevme an opportunity to gain some understanding in how the process works.
