    Welp, I checked out the "Delete Now" and "M4R" categories. They're filling up further than they should.

    When I first joined the Wiki, neither category ever seemed to go past one or two articles before they were eventually deleted from each category (or just deleted).

    I checked today, and they're piling up.



    Perhaps it's none of my business. Maybe you guys are just getting so many awful uploads (like in 2013) that you don't have time to keep up with all of them.

    But I thought I'd just give you guys a heads-up.

    • Believe it or not, this not uncommon. The admins are busy, and don't seem to have the time to go through the marked articles immediately. In fact, that Fear of the Unknown article has been marked for what will be an entire month this upcoming Friday.

      Every now and again these categories pile up, but when the admins find time they usually beat them down.

      I don't know.

      The night I uploaded The Tractor, there was almost zero activity at all (aside from me).

      I suppose it's possible that it was just very late in their timezones and they were asleep (because I doubt any of the admin live in Alaska like I do).

      And either way, I'm not necessarily upset or trying to get anyone in trouble, but I just thought that it would be helpful to point this out.

      I think you're over-reacting quite a bit here. There are about ten things in total marked for review/deletion. One story is in both due to disagreements about categorization and another are historical screengrabs of stories that we're looking to remove but are currently trying to find a place to store them as they do have some relevance (they are screengrabs of a number of famous stories and where they were first posted) to creepypastas in general. A number of them have also gotten feedback in the comments that they are reworking which has led to us leaving them so the author can revise them and we can keep track of them.

      Additionally, I am going to suggest you take a moment to realize that admins may have other things going on in their lives. I spent the past month reviewing clinical programs, interviewing students who have gone to said programs, and filling out the applications. On top of that, I have classes from 8-5 on the weekdays, labs every other day from 5-8, and I have to study in my free time so I can actually do the job I'm studying. I had an exam about an hour ago that I also spent my time on studying for this weekend. That's just me, I wouldn't be so presumptuous to assume that the other admins (hell, everyone really) don't have their own things going on that're impact the time they're able to be on site.

      On the night you posted The Tractor, I was removing a blogicle about an hour before and was banning a user (and leaving a message on their talk page) for discussion rules violations about fifteen minutes after your last edit on your story. After that, I was monitoring comments (you made one close to midnight on the 8th), edits, the writer's workshop (as it got a bit heated), and the discussions board. I'm not sure how active you feel like I should be, but if it's more active than that, I'll be sure to send you my Venmo as it seems like you want me to treat this like a full-time job).

      A gentle reminder: This is volunteer work I do on the side of my actual life. I am not going to let it interfere with my academic, work, or social life because there are ten or so stories in the M4R/delete categories.

      I think you're over-reacting quite a bit here. There are about ten things in total marked for review/deletion. One story is...

      The only one overreacting here is you, Empy. It seems, for some reason, you took this post as a personal insult, when in reality, it was nothing of the sort.

      Postuhenin explicitly said that they were only trying to help. The blog post was calm and collected, simply pointing out to you something that I imagine Postuhenin might have thought you missed. There was no need for you to write such an extensive, snarky comment, especially the part about sending them your Venmo. NedWolfkin's response answered the post perfectly, and did not contain the sarcastic, inappropriate tone of yours. You seem intent on reminding people of this constantly: that you won't sacrifice your outside life just to devote to the wiki. The thing is that I am yet to have seen 1 request or even suggestion that you should do so. No-one is asking you to do such a thing. No one is even implying it. Postuhenin certainly didn't. So why are you so intent on bringing it up at any and every time you can? I have never seen another admin on this site complain about this type of thing to the extent that you do. It's ridiculous.

      Coming from someone who so frequently tells people to 'reflect' on their wrongdoings, maybe you should take the time to reflect on how immature and unnecessary that reply was.

    • @Corn: I'm not gonna deny Emp's response was a bit over zealous but I don't neccesarily blame him, he's made it pretty obvious he's stressed out about work and personal life and I imagine if I was doing volunteer work I'd be as on edge. 


      Honestly the percieved pile of M4R and Deletions is a bit of a dramatization but it really isn't a huge deal, nothing to get worked up over on any side.

      My issue isn't anything to do with the M4R or deletions page. My issue is with how Empy clearly does not subject himself to the wiki's own rules. For whatever reason, he chooses to lash out when his status is threatened even the tiniest amount, leading me to believe that perhaps this is related to some bigger personal issue of insecurity. If a non-admin user made a comment akin to the one he has made here, I guarantee it would get taken down and the user would be warned about 'misconduct' on their talk page.

      INB4 Empy sees this and accuses me of 'stirring the pot' when I'm just pointing out his blatant hypocrisy.

    • I'm going to go ahead and close this thread as A) the main concern has been addressed, and B) it's getting wildly out of control at a breakneck pace.
