Why was my account declined?

For serious discussion of the "major" forum for Wikipedia criticism and how it fails.

Why was my account declined?

Postby CMAwatch » Thu Nov 14, 2019 10:10 am

On Wikipediocracy, every account needs to be administrator-approved, but my account was declined.

What have I done wrong?

Without telling us exactly what you did, there is no way you are likely to get a cogent answer. And you have not pinged anyone who is admin on WPO. I could ask, privately, but without any information, not worth the effort.

I registered, as usual, with the same user name as here.
That's all.

Also, this old version of phpBB supports no pinging, does it?

(I suggest this forum to upgrade to Discourse or XenForo. 10× better than the current, outdated software.)

WPO recently crashed & burned, and then got up and running again. Maybe some kind of technical regression bug has been introduced in the resurrection of WPO.

Well, then I would suggest that WPO admin was not impressed. Did you receive a rejection mail? What did it say?

No rejection email.
Just that my username no longer exists on Wikipediocracy.
What exactly is the reason for my rejection?
I have avidly criticized Wikipedia and Bbb23.
Isn't Wikipediocracy against Bbb23 too?

But I still don't know why I was rejected from Wikipediocracy.

The admin over there has not explained his decision, sadly.

You will never find out anything from whomever is running that place now, I have my doubts that they will still be in business in two years because it's not an open hangout. You need to be open if you want to attract ex-Wikipedians. I am utterly serious in saying I would be willing to let Jimbo Himself post here; even though I didn't get along with James Alexander I would be willing to let him in, but I'm sure he's trying to purge any memories of the culty world of the WMF while doing whatever he does over at Twitter.

I also would not mind having a sincere, logical conversation with some WP administrators here.

Here is a safe space where no Bbb23 can block users out of nowhere.

Here is a neutral space where WP admins can not silence legitimate criticsm.
