Who Owns an Article on

Nobody owns an article in Wikipedia

“Compared to the behaviour of such recent arbitration subjects as Herschelkrustofsky or Robert the Bruce, John Gohde is just fine. … However, he really doesn’t get this “no article ownership” or “play well with others” thing at all. In my non-arbitrating and strictly as any old Wikipedian opinion”David Gerard 23:54, 28 Feb 2005 (UTC) [4]

  • There is a difference between people working to improve an article [5], by increasing the informational content, and between those who have nothing better to do than crap on articles[6] and actively try to destroy the work of other people[7], with edits that destroy prior work rather than contribute anything positive to the article.
    • The negative example cited above [8]shows an instance of an editor deleting an entire sentence over one word, when the editor could simply have changed the word.
  • The wisdom of ages clearly states: Too many cooks spoil the broth.
  • Mental Vomit best describes Wikipedia:Categories, lists, and series boxes. Starting on [9] and ending on [10] this editor who has been clearly living on Wikipedia for 8 plus hours a day, 7 days a week, for several years made a total of 19 edits to a so-called finely tuned guideline that reminded me of somebody being totally intoxicated because they clearly couldn’t make up their mind as to what they were actually doing. This admin happens to be one of the so-called best in Wikipedia. Of course, the real reason behind all his intectually dishonesty is the fact they can not stand facing the fact that lists have more historically documented advantages to them than their new concept of categories, which nobody else on the planet is using.
