JasonB on the Wiki

Post by Ted C » 2009-08-26 01:42pm

I'm not sure where to address this, but the Senate seems like a good place to start. We have a user on the wiki, JasonB, who has edited or created several articles, and all of the edits are... well... bad.

JasonB appears to have no concept of spelling or grammar; his intent doesn't seem to be well thought-out; he has repeatedly inserted information in inappropriate pages (like adding content about specific weapons to the weapon category page); and he seems to have no clue about wiki code.

Examples at...

So, I ask my fellow senators, should I just block JasonB until there's some indication he can write coherent content?

I would say yes. Frankly, someone who horribly butchers English should be blocked for that reason alone.

Yes. You guys are actually trying to do a wiki page that isn't a mish mash of one note stupidity.

Obviously. He's doing more damage than adding useful information.

I've applied a one-month block. If he continues to write incoherent stuff after it expires, I'll block him permanently.

Yes. JasonB is currently prevented from posting edits to ImperialWiki, nothing more.
