Seems to me having the biggest asshole Administrators resigning en masse is a necessary first step.work together to strengthen community self-governance while also cultivating a respectful editing environment that safeguards everyone in the community
The remaining rebel Wikipedians are not going to get what they want. They are not the WMF's equals, they will be forced to do what is necessary for en.wiki to be a place where WP:CIVIL is actually enforced, or they will be ground into the dirt.
I mean, it really can't be fixed, but it will be helpful for future scholars to see the failure of Wikipedia was assuming you can do what they want to do using random volunteers. There needs to be a screening process and a continual filtering mechanism to provide the ecosystem with a robust way to keep people who are not and never will be Wikipedians, out of Wikipedia. Letting obvious assholes rule that repeatedly saying 'fuck off' to other editors is not uncivil, was obviously a stupid move, but it tells everyone how Wikipediocracy failed. It was, after all, just an experiment. The results are in. Toxic.
Wikipediocracy and Wikipedia have of course only just noticed Wnt shouldn't be there. he's made 36,000+ edits over a decade! Here's a handy hint - anyone who let's their talk page grow to 100+ sections, probable isn't a Wikipedian, because they're an asshole. Some of the most loved people in the Wikipedia community, are people who actively try to prevent others communicating with them. That's the complete opposite of what a Wikipedian is supposed to be.
The place has been broken for years.
Needs blowing up and starting again, as they like to say.
