It is OK to edit this article, even though it is in the user namespace!

In fact, you may edit it mercilessly. As a courtesy, please keep the original direction of the article in mind.


Sometimes you just need some controversy and wikidrama, but there just isn't any available. Here are some suggestions on how to make that happen. [To do: provide links to examples, extend lists]

change the operation paradigm[edit | edit source]

Admin promotion[edit | edit source]

  • suggest an obviously unsuited admin for promotion, preferably one whose RfA has failed before
  • promote an admin who gets into bitter fights with other editors
  • promote an admin who has no community support
  • promote an admin that one of the bureaucrats opposes [1][2]

borderline edit actions[edit | edit source]

  • move a page to a totally different topic, state a reason that sounds sane
  • delete / undelete a page that has a 1% chance of being an article and not a hoax, citing GW:AGF Talk:Acorns

policy disputes[edit | edit source]

user page design[edit | edit source]

  • post fake pictures
  • post revealing pictures
  • post a gallery of Boobies A-F-starter.jpg

inflammatory topics[edit | edit source]

  • discuss an ArenaNet employee's sexual preferences based on information that later turned out to be wrong
  • claim the death of the wiki [6]
