Breitbart article[edit]

Hi, I saw your comment here. You may not be aware, but I am the author of the article and had plenty of experience editing Wikipedia. Could you explain to me what errors you felt were present in my piece?--The Devil's Advocate (talk) 20:23, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

@The Devil's Advocate: - hello. So my counting of the proposal to ban the WMF actually was very slightly in favour of the opposes (though functionally NC); I assumed that in several circumstances calling a ban when in fact it was a block was a reasonable change to avoid confusing non-editors before you cover it specifically later; I don't believe the request against Fram editing about Laura was "vague" (at least it's vagueness was mixed) - it's unclear about being a ban, but it wasn't vague about what he couldn't/shouldn't do;
More importantly, I also feel that the lack of mention of the internal support for the WMF's actions (whether against Fram or even generally) would be warranted (I don't agree with them in the non-Fram aspects, but it's certainly to be considered).
I also realise I specifically should have noted in my original post that I particularly liked the frequent links to particular bits of on-wiki discussion/evidence. Nosebagbear (talk) 20:43, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
I count 32 opposes and 33 supports including Fastily, who proposed it yet did not vote directly. The warning did seem vague about what Fram could do or what exactly would happen if he did have some kind of interaction with her. Did mention administrators resigning out of frustration with the community, but limitations on length meant I trimmed some side-drama involving those supporting the ban. At the time I first wrote it ( over a week ago) there also wasn't as much support being expressed.--The Devil's Advocate (talk) 02:19, 30 June 2019 (UTC)
I can accept the week ago (I'm not sure about it, but obviously I don't have an exact knowledge of what the support % was either way) - obviously like any reader I have to judge it at the point of publication Nosebagbear (talk) 13:55, 30 June 2019 (UTC)


  • Hello! This message is a sincere request from the proposer of WikiDirect. Please, if you have any time, take a look at the project proposal and give your opinion (possibly show us your support). Thank you... Arep Ticous 15:42, 21 September 2019 (UTC)


Hi. As promised, I have relayed to the UCoC team the question about ratification and process. For what it's worth, my expressed understanding of the boundaries of the consultation was based on my reading of this Board of Trustees statement. Asaf (WMF) (talk) 15:49, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
