Copy (Critical)

Copy from Jimbo Wales user discussion(en)


Dear Jimmy, I am a Wikipedia contributor in the Portuguese language and am requesting your intervention in the project. There exists among us a tremendous amount of intrigue, harassment, personal threats, inadequate block, clash of egos and power abuses. I can not stand such injustice, so many users with destructive behavior, so much political intrigue and partiality in administrators. The new users are intimidated and abandon the project, edit wars proliferate and the bad users trying to silence their opponents with lock requests without foundation. Users with bad behavior are protected by administrators and users who try to expose corruption are blocked. The rule is trying to impose views and threaten to block those who disagree with arbitrariness. I am tired. This project is broken, please dismisses administrators and cancel their arbitrary actions, otherwise the credibility of Wikipedia is extinguished. Thank you.

PS: sorry for my bad english. Leandro LV (talk) 20:07, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Jimbo rarely gets involved in other wikis. Problems with other wikis properly belong at Meta, here. Rodhullandemu 01:54, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I dont think that stewards need to review it, ptwiki in the moment has started a process of renew in your politics, anyway the local comunity has authority to do anything, if all the community endorsing. User Leandro has filtered for abuse of public space, we can understand your frustration with the community. Regards - @lestaty discuţie 00:34, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
No, I was filtered because I denounced the policy of terrorism which consists of the following: a user starts an edit war with another user, then the first makes a request to block the second and to intimidate him, this way he tries to impose their point of view. Here is a small example of the corruption of our Wikipedia and I was punished for protesting against it. Leandro LV 04:20, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

This is a small evidence of the caos(Portuguese). Leandro LV 00:29, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Here is another evidence of the caos. (Portuguese) Leandro LV 12:07, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Any other steward comments?--Müdigkeit 01:28, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Leandro LV: This is not a steward-related issue. Stewards are not "super admins", nor are we a step in the dispute resolution process. We have a restriction to not perform actions against the local consensus of a project except in such cases (and this does not apply here that I can see) that a local action is violating a global policy. Wikimedia does not (yet?) have a global dispute resolution system in place that would handle such issues if the local project doesn't wish to do so. Kylu 05:31, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
So Wikipedia has just taken his final breath of credibility and morality. Leandro LV 21:44, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
Review Steward policy and suggest an action that we're able to perform which strictly abides by this policy and we'll talk. Requesting us to simply ignore the desires of the local users and go mass-removing rights on one person's request doesn't seem to fall within our scope, however. Kylu 21:04, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
