Look, we know you're trying to help Wikipedia. Everybody does. That's not the problem though - the problem is that sewp and most of its editors are incompetent. It might be due to immaturity, poor social skills, or just sure idiocy, but your entire "project" is plagued by useless humps. The only way to solve the problem is to either get rid of the drama llamas or shut the godforsaken place down.
I know of a couple of editors who would fit that description, but, because I am not active at en.wiki I dont know the history of everyone.
The trouble is, we got rid of a few people, but there are others who want to give the person one more chance. FastReverter/StaticHawk/ShockingFalcon or whatever the hell you want to call him was banned, but we had to give him one more chance. (Although he is doing okay
just now.) Another is Jonas D Rand, who was banned, so far successfully.
Tharnton345 is blocked too, although only for 1 year. Again, people wanted to give someone who does no good, another chance.
There is another two I'd like to get rid of, but I doubt its possible. One is even an admin.
The thing is, most of our editors are fine. There are no issues on en.wiki. Most are in good standing at en.wiki. There is only a couple who give us a stigma as "Wikipedia playground".
I hate to use another cliche but: Don't judge a book by its cover. You (plural) only see the bad points. You only see a small amount of what goes on. Once you get past the drama, its not as bad as it seems.
