Proposal for closure

It's only good form that regulars be informed that a request has been lodged for this project's closure. See here. Best, Anonymous Dissident (talk) 11:31, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Proposal for merger

It has been proposed that the 4 Simple wikis be merged into one project; see this for details. Pmlineditor  16:05, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Doesn't look like that was going anywhere ... Tempodivalse [talk] 03:07, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Why isn't this wiki closed?

This wiki was supposed to close in November 2009, over a month ago, by consensus. The majority of the people voting (45) supported the closure, while only 8 opposed it. Why is it still open to editing? Is it possible for someone to just eradicate this wiki and give Na'vi the content to host it on his own server/Wikia/whatever? --Jonas Rand (talk) 17:18, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Because the devs haven't done the request yet... Pmlineditor  17:22, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Are "the devs" that incompetent that they must wait more than 38 days to close a wiki that never was successful in the first place, and has no chance of being so? Or is it that nobody on Simple Wikipedia/WQ has even bothered to notify them of the closure? --Jonas Rand (talk) 17:27, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
There is a backlog on most WMF "shell" jobs because the developers are generally dealing with much more important issues such as keeping the servers running. Grow up, Jonas. Bluegoblin7 (talk)
(edit conflict)Read what people say before complaining. That we have notified the devs and filed a Bugzilla request is clearly mentioned in the previous thread. And you are free to ask the devs whether they are incompetent. Pmlineditor  17:32, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. (talk) 17:35, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Hiroshima and Nagasaki

I've recently heard about a Japanese dying from cancer many many years after been exposed to both WW2 nukes. I've myself suffered on Wikiquote both from French and now Simple closure.

Each time the bombers (I mean people urging for those destructions) were mostly outsiders and, each time, they were naming democracy that kind of action... very kind indeed. ONaNcle (talk) 21:34, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Uhh... what? This project was closed by consensus on meta. 45 users supported its closure and only 9 opposed. Some of the people who supported its closure are also current or former admins of this wiki. How would this relate to WW2 or Japan? (talk) 21:40, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
What an exaggeration. So, you're comparing a man who was the survivor of two brutal, criminal atrocities, which bombed entire cities, to a stupid wiki? That's an insult. (talk) 16:19, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Guys, troll somewhere else. Pmlineditor  16:21, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Please, establish bot flag.

Eh, this project is dead and will be closed soon (see sitenotice). I don't really see what the point of this is ... Tempodivalse [talk] 03:05, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
ok. --Eleferen (talk) 04:08, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
