What a shameful move ![edit]

This famous Signpost who has campaigned against Lila Tretikov, Arnnon Geshuri and others, pretending to be representative of a large part of the community, is now quite defunct. Maybe the fucking fuckers are tired, and the readers too. Asking that someone become paid for:

1. Wrangle contributors to be timely with submitting content
2. Collect all content from contributors
3. Deliver submitted content to editor for approval
4. Publish content at the editor's direction
5. Respond to any messages about problems
6. Collect readership metrics and other relevant performance metrics

is astounding. Points 1,2,3,5,6 are editorial tasks, not technical ones. And the very act of publishing (4), i.e. transferring some pages from a private space to a public space don't appear to be more complicated that any other publishing task done by any other volunteer here. Why no granting 100$ to anyone publishing something or 5000$ to anyone using en::Template:Routemap ? Pldx1 (talk) 20:35, 2 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]
