Idea by User:Base/Testament.

You know, Memento mori. Nobody knows the date and time of their death, which is unfortunate but it's a matter of fact.

Being explicit means it's less sensitive, but this is about my preferences, right?

What I would not like to see in the heaven (or your place after death):

  • No {{Deceased}}. Templates are beautiful, big, explicit, but no thanks. People don't look at the texts, just big images.
  • Do not write all the nice words on my talk pages. I'm sure there are about as many Wikimedians who hate me as those who like me. Perhaps the former prevail, and they'll just leave "good words" after I die. Eww. If you have something to say, do it now, while I am sure to be able to read it, and (maybe) improve myself. That'll be nice to you as well, isn't it?
  • Do not leave my user rights on. Those are technical flags entailing responsibilities, not a medal like... North Koreans. Well, Stewards and CUs must be removed for security stuff anyways.
  • Please lock my main account (this one) and my other accounts. That is sulutil:Revibot, I, II, III, IV, Gisado, WMF account (If I am still not fired from the Foundation at the time of death). Also includes Wikitech accounts and Phabricator account.
  • Do not write something about my death. Those who want to remember me will do so whether or not there is written articles. Maybe you will stumble upon my old comment somewhere in the archive, and remember me. I do not want any brand new posthumous fans.
  • If you have to write about me somewhere or talk about me despite the note above, for whatever reason, do not observe that stupid only good things or nothing rule. If you think I am a stubborn bullshit, my death must not shut you up.

What would be nice to do:

  • Please indicate that I am no longer able to respond to the messages, via User talk:-revi/Editnotice, User:-revi/Email(User:-revi/Emailnotice).
  • You may change my user page slightly to tweak the grammar to the past tense and such. Any change that is made to keep the rendered page as is (like when markup language syntax changes) is also fine.
    • Otherwise please leave the text as is, and maybe protection downgraded to semiprotect to let users in below list edit.
  • There are Wikimedians whom I trust a lot. They may do more drastic changes, like redesign the pages, they would infer what I would think well. (But please, no template.) This list is not final until I die. (People listed here are notified of this and will provide proof should someone wants confirmation after I die. (Or you may already know)) The last one is most trusted. 11669046, 8845, 10180704.
