Name Length[edit]

The name of this page is far too long. Why not shorten it? -- 92.10.89.238 18:00, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

I like the name really, but it wreaks havoc with my specific customized Modern stylesheet – that I must now temporarily disable in order to be able to edit here – so I prefer the page to be moved to AWWDMBJAWGCAWAIFDSPBATDMTD, and the name Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists to be a redirect. rursus 14:46, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, you are going to go around suggesting all long article titles be reduced to make your customized stylesheet work rather than correct your stylesheet? DoubleBlue (Talk) 16:15, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Is this a joke? It's not funny. Tell me, why do we have this anyway? It seems so Uncyclopeida-ish. --24.91.132.160 19:01, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
I believe that's why it's here in the meta-wiki instead of Wikipedia. 72.229.55.73 22:06, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
I prefer the regular Wikipedia style to the Modern style or other styles because the search page is to the top right instead of right below the logo to the left, I think Modern style Wikipedia looks like XKCD or Reddit. --Turkeybutt JC (talk) 21:29, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Examples of Bad Articles That Don't Belong in Wikipedia[edit]

I stumbled apon your association and am intrigued by your cause. Could you give us some examples of Bad articles and explain what justifies deleting them? Some examples could explain your association better. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 142.165.229.243 (talk)

How can I join!? --190.60.93.218 13:02, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Quit using IP, register. Creating an account is easy.  Klaas `Z4␟` V:  10:27, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

It seems another election is in order...[edit]

Our treasurer's term seems to be about to expire, in case anyone cares to begin campaigning wildly. Hi878 05:01, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Ten days left... I think we are going to have major problems if a new treasurer isn't elected. Hi878 03:26, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
Ha, ha :D, and how about you? Are you a candidate? --Reo On|+|+ 00:06, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
I don't think I can be trusted with all of this money that we have. Hi878 00:55, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
It seems we have a problem... An emergency election is in order, I believe. Hi878 04:39, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

When is the last time that we used any of our money? I have a suspicion that Greeves has been embezzling it. Anyone care to investigate the matter? Bzweebl (talkcontribs) 20:41, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

I should probably come clean. I've spent it all. elektrikSHOOS (talk) 22:46, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
Greeves' term has expired, so we need to find a treasurer to manage our ¤0. Seeing as we have no money, I nominate No One. I am disappointed that he received 0% of the vote in the presidential election, but clearly that made Every One happy. Perhaps this is the right position for No One because Every One is president, so he won't get upset about No One being treasurer. Anyway, is No One currently the interim treasurer, or is Greeves a lame duck? Bzweebl (talkcontribs) 03:03, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
No progress is being made. I have taken power in a coup. Bzweebl (talkcontribs) 01:30, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Moved from content page[edit]

  • gwickwire is the Treasurer, due to the facts presented below:
  1. If Bzweebl was a good treasurer, we would have more than ¤0.
  2. If we had more than ¤0, then he was a bad treasurer as we now have ¤0
  3. We have ¤0.
  4. Ergo, Bzweebl was a bad treasurer, so I am taking over his position.
Gwickwire (talk) 04:21, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
No you're not, read the talk page. ElektrikShoos admitted to stealing all the money. Bzweebl (talkcontribs) 17:27, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
Can I go after them then?!! I shall relenquish my duties (which you've already re-taken over). Gwickwire (talk) 19:07, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
I wish you luck. Bzweebl (talkcontribs) 03:13, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

Great Message[edit]

Secretary[edit]

Everyone is reelected, per w:WP:SNOW and IAR. — pythoncoder (talk | contribs) 00:11, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

I renominate Everyone as General Secretary. They've been serving for a long time past their term limit, but nevertheless, they've done a good job so far, so they should stay. — pythoncoder (talk | contribs) 19:54, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

Snow close in favor even though I was involved and indeed the only other voter. Position lasts until 10/31/23. — pythoncoder (talk | contribs) 00:21, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Bzweebl's term has ended August 2017. I suggest to reelect our treasurer for another five years starting 28 May 2018. Klaas `Z4␟` V:  10:36, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Proposal[edit]

The Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists should organize regular meetings where users can discuss the implementation of ideas, address technical difficulties, and meet new members. A potential meeting may look like this example.

  1. Read minutes of previous meeting,
  2. Introductory remarks from the General Secretary.
    1. In case of multiple holders of the position, all General Secretaries will give remarks in order of most recently elected to least recently elected.
  3. Acknowledge members that have joined since last meeting.
  4. Bring up topics of concern/interest from all members in opposite order of introductory remarks.
  5. Each topic will be followed by a round table discussion.
  6. Closing remarks from the General Secretary.
    1. See 2(1).
