Wiki Review's failure is a joy to watch

This is too good a thread title to let go of. Any plans to take this forum forward?

Wikipedia criticism is such a small, specialized topic, it's hard to expand. It can also be boring and frustrating. I see a lot of problems with Wikipedia and sometimes I'm tempted to bring them to light here or another criticism forum, but I find it's usually something I or someone else has pointed out years ago. I've been at this for over ten years and yet I see no major changes of Wikipedia or it's impending demise. All things entrophy, and it's only a matter of when and what that eventually brings down Wikipedia.

I am pretty sure WP-NL goes down in a short time, it's a project without any potential or future. And I think WMF take it down with a lot of show, to save the other projects. And maybe a few other shit wiki's. Because then they can say, look, we do something against shit wiki's.
