From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Most users are undoubtedly aware of the ongoing situation on VFS where voting was locked last week due to edit warring on the page. This followed the removal of Aimsplode’s nomination.
It is the view of Romartus and me, as the two active administrators currently not contributing to the fork, that Aimsplode’s nomination has received bad faith votes from a minority of users who are now editing the forked wiki.
Aimsplode is banned indefinitely from the fork for being “an arrogant, unrepentant asshole” and has not made significant contributions to the Wikia Uncyclopedia over the last 12 months. It is our belief that the views of the users who have remained on this wiki are being unfairly overwhelmed by a group of users from the fork who have reappeared, voted for Aimsplode and then returned to the fork.
Ultimately this VFS vote and indeed this wiki must come to reflect the opinions of those users who continue to maintain and add to it.
I am also aware that it is the view of some users that this wiki should fail and the fork replace it as the prime Uncyclopedia site, that view need not disqualify you from contributing here, provided you can do so without trying to disrupt what is going on. If you cannot do that then it is best that you do confine your editing to a single wiki.
I have discussed ongoing action at length with Romartus and we have made a decision as the two administrators who have not moved over to the fork: The nominations of Aimsplode, Meganew and Stupid Bunny will be removed from VFS.
Anybody who reverts this will be the subject of an indefinite ban, so don’t.
For some clarity regarding VFS going forward the rules will be as follows:
- Two votes per user – Against votes are not permitted – overly long comments discussing the pros and cons of each candidate will be deleted.
- No further nominations are permitted.
- Users will observe rule 2 at all times, failure to do so will result in any votes cast being removed and a ban until VFS is over.
- Voting will end at midnight (UTC) on February 3rd
The VFS vote was opened to users from the other wiki because it was, and still is, my belief that users who have moved deserve some say in what happens here. It is my intention that this remains the case.
There is no intention to remove rights or ban users without reason. If users can work on both wikis without conflicting with the community they will always be welcome here. We appreciate that a lot of people want to remain using both wikis and it is my opinion that if the community must split then a good relationship between both sites that allows us to cooperate and collaborate is the ideal situation going forward.
It is regrettable that we have come to this point but in the view of Romartus and me that the result of the VFS ultimately benefits this wiki. I do not disqualify Aimsplode, Meganew or indeed Stupid Bunny from being administrators in future, however this should come as a result of their own hard work, not because it would be funny. --17:38, January 28, 2013 (UTC)
