[Wikipedia is] a stupid video game, and the "encyclopedia" is an accidental byproduct.

Fascinating. Some of the post-2010 accounts are also likely to be fresh starts. (I believe Tony B. is an example based on what Arb Warfare said in his RfA.)

Once again, the RFA chart I made in 2011. After 2012 they tried to generate more admins, but it was a tiny fraction of this. No one wants to do it anymore, except the long-term crazies. Clear proof their rotten little Stalinist Politburo has ossified in place.
