Yes well Tony is a great admin from a admin point of view.
He's like GorillaWarfare crossed with JzG, writing spam articles about his associates (clients?) while presenting himself as the guardian of Wikipedia's integrity.

Re: What is that ArbComm for?

Let's just note that with a projected income next FY of $93 million, the WMF could afford to assemble a panel of a hundred scholars to sort out issues, which are essentially about how to write articles, and still have 90% of their income to spend on other things . For some reason, they choose not t...

Re: banned from french wikipedia

I checked your edits there, you are absolute a friendly, good willing user . There is not any, any reason to block you on that project. It wasn't the Dutch who blocked me, rather programmers on meta scrambled my password because I'd opposed Lar and Cary Bass in their steward reconfirmations. Bass w...

Re: What is that ArbComm for?

Put yourself in the shoes of a historian trying to write about some basic facts, some of which are referenced to contemporary German sources. Then this K e coffmann dude comes around and blanks everything saying, you can't trust anything those Germans write, and the very fact of writing about this s...

Re: What is that ArbComm for?

The proposed decision has been posted. They've reframed the entire dispute as harassment: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/German_war_effort/Proposed_decision The diffs provided in support of this interpretation show an extraordinary degree of creativity on the part ...

Re: What is that ArbComm for?

The proposed decision on the German war effort case was due yesterday, 7th July, after one extension already taken. Apparently another extension is now necessary . I suppose that actually writing an encyclopaedia, with all that knowledge of history, and historiography, and actual expertise, and stu...

Re: WMF and Article 13

Interesting that Wikitribune is taking a fiercely pro-Jimbo line on this. It would be great if people from the critical community were to engage at Wiktribune when it's being used to promote Jimbo and the Foundation in their quest for world domination.

Re: Wikidata licence woes

All the tech volunteers are plants. I should know, I know them. Tell us more… One of the most common games, and I've seen this firsthand: I'm always trying to determine who was the first to say something. If I cite someone else too – and it is generally bad to dereference someone you've already use...
