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.

The latest signpost is out.

In his post as de facto leader of the failing wikipedia signpost Kudpung has published, quite a lot of stuff he didn't write:

A desperate appeal for help.
The obligatory amalgamation of Flow 2.0 related stuff.
The shortest Arb report ever.
A reprint of the tech newsletter.
Some research abstracts.
Literally a reprint from 2005.
A message from the WMF.
a photo gallery.
OMG people use Wikipedia when watching Netflix.
Vanity page.
Hypocrisy, thy name is Bishonen.
Homophobic rant by SMcCandlish.

Indeed, there is no editorial control being shown here at all. Methinks Kudpung didn't do anything. :?

Update:

The homophobic rant by SMcCandlish (http://archive.is/Abrt0) has been nominated for deletion, and is now at MfD.

Also, as an essay it's been around since 2017, but the essay is being deleted too.

Kudpung has disavowed all responsibility.....

There is absolutely nothing which connects me with the decision to publish the February issue of The Signpost...... Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 11:24, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

Naturally, the fact he was still listed as Editor-In-Chief is someone else's screwup. :roll:

The primal scream of the old white straight dudes of Wikipedia.....
Quote:
Even if the (heavily canvassed) consensus was that the article was inappropriate, a lot of bad blood has been spilled by several very mean spirited individuals, long-timers and newbies alike, including editors and admins for whom I have had the highest respect. There are people who will look for any excuse feel they have been insulted, attacked, or intimidated (ANI is full of it) and there are the drama lovers and wannabe Wiki police who rejoice in the opportunity to join in the fray and pile on. Wikipedia is getting out of control. It's time to stop the fiasco. Kudpung3 (talk) 03:41, 8 March 2019 (UTC)


STOP THE FIASCO PEOPLE.

Stopping? Please not, It is just getting fun! :mrgreen:
Do you know the epic story of the witch who roll a golden ball in a gathering of people by a new born baby? Who gets it may keep it! The names and details I can't remember, but there it remains me on.

i am really sorry, but I am pissing my pans. And always remember, it is complete for free as long you are no so stupid to give these fools one cent. :mrgreen: :lol: :lol: :lol:
