Not of the Wikipediocracy body. . .

Hey friends, this one’s a quick post with a few quick updates. Some of the folks at Wikipediocracy don’t seem to be too happy about offwiki.org. Who could blame them? For years they have cornered the market on offwiki suggestions for how to improve onwiki behavior. And now here comes a new site- offwiki- that challenges them to practice what they preach. I’m challenging them to be something more than complain about; it’s time put up, or shut the fuck up. For reals. What’s it gonna be, Wikipediocracy?

Now, I believe that Wikiopediocrats have had some very useful criticism that should be considered for onwiki reforms. We can do that; and every wikiapediocrat is heartily invited to offwiki.org. But not everyone is going to want to discuss these issues on Wikipediocracy in its current form.

In the end, it’s a deciding moment. Either you want to see Wikipedia prosper or you want to see it die in flames. But it’s time for every individual to decide. So, choose wisely.
