Re: WikiTribune

The site is terrible. Horrible format, no real content. It clearly is going nowhere. Jimbo should pull the plug.

Re: What is that ArbComm for?

a bunch of amateurs amusing themselves by playing at being Supreme Court justices. :lol: yes nailed it. Every new day that others hang upon their words affirms their power and importance, as well their immunity to their own edicts and standards, which is the whole reason they like the job to begin ...

Re: New snouts in the trough

Those first two at least appear to be part of the WMF. The Wiki Education Foundation is an independent nonprofit that was spun off from the WMF, ostensibly to connect Wikipedia to higher ed. Think about how insane that is. They're using the Wikipedia name, to do something the WMF should obviously be...

Re: WMF doing good trolling

That's some good trolling right there. Hopefully it will cause her to wake up and realize how ridiculous this is.

Maher is politicizing the WMF. Not a good plan.

Re: Davos is snowy

Jimbo is not known for his business acumen. His mistake was to make Wikipedia a charity to offset costs from Bomis without considering that Bomis was going to die and Wikipedia was going to be the #5 site on the internet. Could be. Could be a simple screw-up. He miscalculated the potential of Wikip...

Re: Katherine Maher, executive director Wikimedia Foundation

Interesting. She must be incredibly stupid or full of herself. All her job really requires her to do is show up once in a while, cash those paychecks, and not say anything really dumb or inflammatory. It's almost like she wants to be fired. Prediction: her days of failing upwards are over. She's goi...

Re: Davos is snowy

haha awesome you read it here first! Shouldn't be so surprised as we are the true successor site of the great Wikipedia Review. Pretty soon all that weird Wikipediocracy nastiness will be forgotten.

Re: How to make your MediaWiki based site mobile-friendly

I never bothered with https because it seemed like overkill for an encyclopedia site where the only sensitive information is account passwords and at the time I looked it cost more money. The idea of a free security certificate seems kind of suspicious. But Google did say they would penalize sites w...
