As you can see by my user contributions page, I haven't edited in a number of months. It's nice to see that a few of my ideas have taken off, however, two factors have largely contributed to a great deal of frustration with this project, thus I am making my last edit for an indefinite amount of time.

  1. The complete ignorance of a small number of contributors. (Rest assured that I mean a very small number of the contributors that participate in Wikipedia, and if you're here reading this, you likely aren't one of them.) It's both very disappointing and frustrating to see repeated instances of people not RTFA before removing a link or content. I do realize that I could likely replace the old content (which is why I classify my departure as an indefinite and not permanent one), but I'd rather take some more time to chill out. Plus...
  2. I don't feel like licensing anything under the GFDL anymore. I volunteered my time to write articles so that other people can place ads galore around them and profit? That doesn't make sense to me. If I do this for nothing, I expect others to be mirroring the content for nothing. I can live with ads if they're an absolute necessity to keep these servers online and if they are removed at a break-even point, but it's blantantly obvious by the search engine optimization and text ads that they see a get-rich-quick scheme in exploiting the contributions of hard-working people who do this for nothing.

Aside from this, however, the experience has been nothing but positive. Au revoir. -- Rdash (t) 14:51, Dec 14, 2004 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of It's a Living (disambiguation)[edit]

A tag has been placed on It's a Living (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates only one extant Wikipedia page and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic); or
  • disambiguates no (zero) extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
