    More Wikipedia drama ensues

    Post by Heat on Mon Jan 17, 2011 8:20 am

    As part of my ongoing campaign to disrupt Wikipedia, I have decided to use their processes to my advantage.

    As such, I have gone straight to the Arbitration Committee, Wikipedia's Supreme Court, and requested that a case regarding the madness surrounding their coverage of Transformers be opened.

    If they accept, I anticipate that they'll either recommend that everyone "sit in a circle and sing Kum Ba Ya", or hand out a few topic bans, meaning YOU CAN'T EDIT ANYTHING RELATED TO TRANSFORMERS FOR X AMOUNT OF TIME ON PAIN OF DEATH.

    I'm hoping for the latter, since that will destroy Wikipedia's coverage of Transformers more comprehensively than a thousand deletion nominations, meaning everyone will go to TFWiki.net for their Transformers info instead.

    That is a good plan.
    Almost too good...

    Indeed.

    They didn't notice when I spearheaded a proposal to ban myself.

    EDIT: Holy crap I just got a response from them.

    They totally misunderstood everything. (They didn't know I was banned, for one.)

    Responded to their email.

    Hopefully the mountain of evidence I provided will get them to accept.

    Let's hope so, how do you mean 'misunderstood'?

    "Misunderstood" was the wrong word.

    "Didn't so much as read half my email" sounds better.
