Hi One and welcome. Emperor 00:50, 14 August 2008 (EDT)

Response to your proposals[edit]

Just wondering if you're satisfied with the response so far to your proposals. I know on WR you mentioned that if you were still unhappy that you might consider leaving. Has there been enough progress for you? Emperor 14:55, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

Complaints on Wikipedia Review[edit]

You wrote:

Emperor's Wiki: where sockpuppets are welcome, and axe-grinders are free to polish their weapons without so much as a "citation needed."

Incidentally, I quit. It's really strange that you regard deletionism as the great evil of Wikipedia, as opposed to libel.

If anyone would like to start a wiki to document Wikipedia and environs (with an emphasis on "document"), I'm interested.

I've responded to you over there, but I don't want to hijack their thread by responding to your specific criticisms.

Regarding the axe-grinders being allowed to operate, how do you propose that I identify axe-grinders and remove them from the general population? Should I do it myself, and using what criteria? Should I appoint admins? If I appoint admins, how can I be sure that they aren't all the same person?

Regarding deletionism and libel, I think that both are problems for Wikipedia. Actually I think that deletionism is the bigger problem. People need to stop taking Wikipedia so seriously, and to start using it for what it's good for, as a rapid thumbnail sketch of any topic that you know you should suspect as being false.

As for starting another Wiki, if you're interested, I would like to know more about how you think it can operate. Emperor 22:27, 5 September 2008 (EDT)
