I'd like a word with and from these "others". I posted the admin email address, which virtually guarantees anonymity, yet nobody used it. I told users they could request a one-on-one chat with one or more admins of their choosing, yet nobody did so. This thread, which has been here for over 24 hours, garnered replies from six users, four of which think the administration is good (but not perfect). Your claims don't match the evidence.

You told me many times why you don't have time. For the hundredth time, that doesn't make a difference.

It does. You are under the impression that administrators have to do all the editing, as well as all the administrating, regardless of how many users we have. The fact is, when I don't have time to make complex edits, I do the work that other users can't - administrative work. Instead of complaining that admins don't do all the work on a wiki, why aren't you complaining that editors don't edit?

Oh, which answers did I ignore?

You ignored the fact that I disagreed with the way Superbike10's test was done. You ignored the fact that I didn't say the administrators didn't have any time whatsoever.

Who tries manipulating here anybody?

...What?

Administration is not that good. Plain and simple.

There are wikis where admins will block you for saying this, and I'm not even kidding.

The administration isn't perfect. No administration is. But it is good. The fact this thread exists is proof of that. I heard there were issues other users had, so I gave them three potential ways to express themselves in: this thread, the chat, and our (admins') collective email address. I listened to your complaints and discussed the issues with Superbike10 (who was on the chat at the time). I have suggested improvements and am trying to come up with more improvements on the issues you've mentioned.

"flat-out ignoring my physical pain" I'm sorry but this is hilarious. Like, it's just a color. You can mark the link using your mouse and the pain goes away.

So much for empathy, I guess.

We are the only ones, mostly because I posted my first message 2 hours ago, not to mention that the thread was made a day ago and I think we both experienced how users like to be left out of the drama.

The drama only started when you lost your impartiality.

Oneofthosedf wrote:

You mean the two older users and two newbies? Hmmm... convincing.

Why the sarcasm? Older users have been here longer than you, so they've experienced our administration longer than you. They are more experienced than you.

Oneofthosedf wrote:

Everyone makes mistakes. Alright, it's not an excuse for everything.

Indeed, it's not. If we were, for example, to delete an entire gallery worth of pictures for no reason, that would be inexcusable. If we miss a post that breaks the rules among thousands of edits, on the other hand, it is excusable.

Have you ever thought about that we have personal problems with you as well? I mean you can say things I haven't heard from anyone before. (this is about chat, other users can't take your side on this)

I'm not the only one who can say whatever things you're talking about. I speak my mind within the scope of the rules.

No one here is claiming anything infallible, but you. I'm just tired that all the answers I get is that "I have a life" and "people make mistakes."

You sure act like we're claiming infallibility, by ignoring those two points - particularly the second one.

Oneofthosedf wrote:

You don't have to be an admin to think of potential fixes and help solving problems.

True. What's your point?

I've been discussing this issue with others, that's why we are here.
