To be honest, I think they did a experiment, but it didn't work out because it became the place to be for complete wiki fools. A space where they were as free as on wikipedia, and a place what was safe for them to tell as much wikishit as they wanted. And because Jack gave me in a very friendly way acces without any restrictions, (only some useful advice), I am shur it wasn't what they wanted because in that way there critical forum had changed in one big joke! It was the Village pump in the square at the end, yes really it was, and was no place anymore for any critic.

But lets look forward, and what your role was is hard to say Crow, although I am sure you played a roll in that proces. But that doesn't have to be negative, it can als be a eyeopener. Anyway, I prefer myself to criticise in a other style in the future, but I like your hard way style too.

OK, lets end this endless discussion. But I think we must start to criticise the wiki system in a more technical way. Because, many people, users have no idea of the structures of WMF. Have no idea of the rather strange functioning of the European politic. Don't know there doesn't exist a European copyright law.
Have no idea how Arbcom is working, with no hear and be heard. People simply don't know! They don't know all the dirty games, they don't know about the astroturfing, the dirty stewards on Meta, the SanFanBan given by the most poor sysop ever, I love cheeseburgers James Alexander.

We must tell them about the tower of Babylon WMF, with a complete incompetent staf. But maybe, maybe, we must indeed change a bit our tune. I mean, as a advice, not as a rule. Leaving a bit our personal frustration behind us. Not at once, but with baby steps....

Look at this crap. He seems to think people can't see that in his case, this is just empty grandstanding, a pathetic attempt to justify yet another case of him showing on Wikipediocracy, with their full endorsement, that he is way more of a Wikipedian than he has ever been a Wikipedia critic. He doesn't know shit, and he whines like a little bitch. For pointing that out, it was I who was muted. I wonder if he can only really manage to get through the day, especially when posting shit like this, by pretending I just don't exist, that people can't find us and see them for what they are, using fact based analysis. It seems to be the strategy of all these cowards. They really should see a therapist, they'll happily tell them it is not a viable coping strategy. Rather hilariously, Jake keeps inadvertently reminding them who they really are, in his own sad attempt to retcon a justification for why we are here and they are there.

Classic throwaway comment from this idiot. Clearly hasn't thought it through at all.

It wouldn't be so bad, if he hadn't just yesterday been flapping his gums about how Wikipediocracy "should be aiming for fact-based analysis". There's no facts or analysis that can turn this vacuous horseshit into something that doesn't induce laughter for those who know what they're talking about, and much wasted time for those who don't.

Embarassing. The guy is a fucking useless moron, someone who just types for the sake of it. If he continues to be protected from this reality by the Wikipediocracy management, he will only get worse. If that is even possible.

Hey, dickhead. You are a Wikipedia Administrator. (28Bytes for anyone who doesn't know). If you don't like it, do something about it.

Why the fuck did this guy even try to get elected to ArbCom? What was he actually going to do if he ever got there?

I think we have a good idea....
Jytdog, of course, is not a new editor, but as he has promised not to do that again I don't see much benefit in having a case about his actions. 28bytes (talk) 01:05, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Is there anyone who can tell C&B Wikipediocrazy is the English wiki and has nothing to do with a critical board? Even with a real, real wiki-sysop in the form of Jackass.
It is a complete realistic copy of the Village Pump of wp-en.

:mrgreen: He, what a old fashion wikifun again with our algorithm fuckers. :mrgreen:

Because that is of course what our dear wikispergs are doing with there Wikipediocrazy and why the domain never may fall. Friend Vig was just giving a swing on the plates, just like that Chinese guys with all there sticks with turning plates. Off course that was what he was doing, the fool and loser. And Pro was giving with all his director stars and stripes a extra swing.


Wikipediots!

Of course that doesn't work outside the Wiki glass bell, idiots! Special not with two pensioners like Abd and me, but they are simple to STUPIDE to understand that.
