Ummm. I guess things have gone from bad to worse. I kinda got made sysop on Encyclopedia Dramatica today. It should be interesting to see how Wikipedia as a whole reacts to this ... fear.gif hmmm.gif evilgrin.gif The first ED admin who is also openly an admin on Wikipedia. Needless to say, they kept checkuser out of the equation!


Have you lost your mind?


As somebody who has his very own ED article, I actually think that this is an extremely good idea!

You go, Alison! Anybody who can be an admin on WP and ED is the definition of cool in my book!

In the context of some of Alison's other issues, I can understand GBG's bemusement. In part, that's why I am interested in the background of this, aside from just being my normal nosey self.

Triple crown!

(Then all you need are admin rights on Wikipedia Watch, and you're made)

Maybe, if your idea of cool includes racism and homophobia. So now Alison is not only charged with cleaning up WP but ED too. Making real progress on that internet addiction. Like those stories of using heroin to treat morphine addiction after the Civil War.

Hmmmmm. I wonder what will happen the first time she tries to "wish into the cornfield" one of those revolting "an hero" articles about a teenage suicide. That's about the most repugnant stuff I have ever seen over there, even more so than the schiesseporn pics they like to use (and I HATE schiesseporn sick.gif ).

There should be a section in the Betty Ford Clinic for this.

The "hate triangle" between WP, WR, and ED goes something like:

WP thinks WR and ED are hateful, vulgar, harassing sites making unfair attacks.
WR thinks WP and ED are irresponsible places of anonymous/pseudonymous defamation.
ED thinks WP and WR take themselves way too seriously and are sources of lulz.

These distinctions were "purer" in the 2006-07 era, and have been highly muddied since now that people from each of these sites are active in the others.

No, I doubt that lulz (shudder) is the motivation. The real motivation is somewhat darker and ever so slightly sinister.

Of course the truth of the matter is that what "each site thinks about the other two" is true of itself as well smile.gif... at least to some degree.

Amen to that, Brother....

Being gay and partially black, I can live with the racism and homophobia (been there, done that...).

I still think that Alison is even cooler for pulling this off!

That's my story and I'm standin' by it!

That's ED usual response: We have a black person, gay person or we know black people, gay people. But that is weak given the extreme racism and homophobic content that the site hosts. ( including "Luz-ey" pics of lynching with racists slogans, while living family members of the victims still try to live their lives.) I could provide dozens of examples, which I did in a argument with BluArdvark at one point, much to Somey's chagrin. So chop-chop, Alison, get rid of that shit or be prepared to explain why you don't.

Do you think if we made Alison a mod here, would the universe explode? Also, would Wikipedians be more upset at her being a WR mod or an ED admin? dry.gif

Per GBG, I am seriously shocked by this. Why, Alison, why? sad.gif
