Re: Breitbart Banned as Reliable Source

So they rejected the case request, because no one presented the necessary evidence to get the case accepted. Of course, there were plenty of illegitimate reasons given as far as it not being "MfD round 3" because ArbCom has much broader power than any deletion discussion. They can review whether he ...

Re: Breitbart Banned as Reliable Source

So the discussion about Guy's essay has been closed and, no surprise, it is a no consensus decision. Edit: There was a deletion review and it was rejected. Now there is an arbitration request . Pretty impressive to see how something I included in the piece without much thought has resulted in more c...

Re: Wikipediocracy's failure is a joy to watch

The only conclusion we can draw, TDA, is that Jake is mad at Trump and I am wondering what the real reason is. Because there is something going on and my guess is it has something to do with Breitbart banned as reliable source. As far as I can tell, Jake's attitude hasn't changed much at all. Perha...

Re: K. e. Coffman's vendetta against dead Germans now at ArbCom

Pudeo brought this up over at WO, but Coffman has apparently taken his campaign to Commons . There he is targeting any colorized versions of historical images depicting the Nazis or Germany's World War II military and canvassing members of German Wikipedia to support him in his efforts. Of course, i...

Re: Wikipediocracy's failure is a joy to watch

Rather than bring it up in the thread where this has been discussed, I am bringing it up here because, like the thread about JzG over at WO, it really has nothing to do with that thread's topic. I seriously have to wonder how anyone over there can think this kind of derailment is useful or serves th...

Re: Breitbart Banned as Reliable Source

The deletion discussion has been open for over a week now and there is no sign of any side having the numbers. Deletes and keeps are even with 17 votes each. One notable thing is one keep vote specifically called for trimming some details, particularly the generalizations about editors, and some vot...

Re: JzG's banns repealed

Meanwhile, over on Wikipediocracy, Trump is officially Hitler: I was reading parts of Mein Kampf earlier today (and not for the first time) to fact-check myself on this post from another thread, and I was reminded again - it isn't just that the parallels are "chilling," the parallels are exact. I d...

Re: JzG's banns repealed

It's looking more and more like JzG's going to be deleted. It is hard to say on that one. The tide has shifted a few times and while it favors deletion now, it is a slim majority, which we all know is going to make a deletion contentious. Not that deleting the page is of any significance in terms o...

Re: Wikipediocracy's failure is a joy to watch

Ming has posted something to the blog and if you're suffering from insomnia then I suggest you read the whole thing because it will definitely help. I sort of read all of it, though at certain places you're better off just skimming. He goes into the "forgotten articles" list showing articles that ha...

Re: Breitbart Banned as Reliable Source

I picked up on this when I first saw the account, but decided not to suggest anything. However, now that they have indeffed and muzzled the moon attacker, I feel there is no issue in noting this was probably CrowsNest from Wikipedia Sucks. He hasn't exactly been sneaky about it as the comments in th...
