The reason the Signpost isn't recognized as a newspaper is because it isn't. No one would miss it if it were gone except Kudpung.

It's a kind of tabloid. No real news and a lot of sensation and the wiki-world according to Kutpung.
It is nothing, it is complete bullshit, it is not even worth to pay much attention on it.

What, you didn't believe them when they said they get all their information from the TIP LINE?

What. A. Scumbag.

Oppose. Evad has certainly provided us with some useful tools, not to mentionn the extremely necessary 'move to draft' tool for New Page Reviewers. However, on 28 February last year he abruptly stopped editing and did not make a single edit until 8 April. It's not so much the hiatus which wasn't too long, but what gives me pause is the fact that the absence was not even accompanied by a "Hi guys, I'm afraid I won't be able to make it for a few weeks" and no replies to various emails while still shouldering a volunteered responsibility for a project. RL (and perhaps health) can certainly get in the way occasionally, but not necessarily to the extent of going AWOL without a word; it was nevertheless a great relief when he just as precipitously returned, safe and well. Concurring with other editors in this section, especially Softlavender, I feel that there is inconclusive activity in the expected areas for me to be able to ignore my usual criteria, and which has not really demonstrated a need for the tools.

Denying someone Admin tools because they dared to log off one day and never told the other random nerds where he was or what he was doing......HOW DARE HE!

With such a warped view of Wikipedia as that, where literally the only freedom you have is to log off and never give the place a second's thought, an essential freedom for a stressful role such as Adminship, how is Kudpung still allowed to be an Administrator?

He's fucking mental.
