This is of course good news for Selina and for all who wish to see WP improved. But it means that she will have even less time to look after this site.

She will probably be banned for some bullshit reason again. I guess.

The assumption that I'd suddenly switch the time I get to spend doing WR stuff to solely Wikipedia at the drop of a hat as unbanned is funny smile.gif I didn't do that last time I kept on the middle road, but even that wasn't enough! I'm just not going to bother trying to change it from within the system at all anymore, it's utterly pointless, and I know plenty of other people have said it before and it isn't worth trying etc but I had to try. I got one of those oldest oldest oldest starting admins talking about the problems so that was good at least. But yeah...

When the problem is so much money passing around hands that some people just have unlimited time to "waste", the only way is for the whole system to change, and in some people's eyes past the "WR BADSITE" stuff it's still all the same, any kind of criticism that everything is not all perfect means you're a troublemaker and must be punished because it goes into that whole denial reflex of "if it's not awesome then what about all the gazillion hours I editor x has spent editing it without questioning these things myself, she can't be proving me an idiot?" that some people probably don't want to think about.

Hmm yeah you're about five years behind me dude I stopped thinking talking to admins was the answer sometime around 2007.

Actually, I assumed the opposite. You became semi-inactive (posting only once in a while, not approving any new accounts) at the Wikipedia Review shortly after you were blocked from Wikipedia.

I thought that you would begin actively posting again if you started editing Wikipedia again. Editing Wikipedia again would make you more interested in Wikipedia's internal affairs, which would result in you having more stuff to share at the WR. I thought that WR would start recovering after you became a Wikipedian again.

It's sad to see you lose faith and give up on Wikipedia, but perhaps it's for the better. Being involved in Wikipedia is stressful.

By the way, welcome back, Selina.
