"abuses of administrator power simply do not happen" -PvXwiki:Administrators
people on this site do not follow the rules - the rules are there to give admins the OPTION of punishing someone. But many times, a user is flamed and flamed and flamed, even when they're activity on wiki is constructive and well-intentioned.
When that user tries to justify himself - or try to point out the un-productivity of flaming - he is flamed more.
This is immaturity - something common in young children but rampant on these websites. It breaks multiple rules that can be found in PvXwiki:Policy, but is generally ignored by the admins.
Most mature intelligent people forget about interacting with other people on the site at this point - which further hinders the growth and development of the site.
People who actually want to participate in the wiki, and who post things that are different from what people are used to seeing are actively and maliciously flamed, without consequence from the admins.
let me ask you, can you see where this will lead? if not, i can tell you that if that person does not leave the site, then he will eventually react in kind. A good, kind-hearted person might hold out longer than others, politely asking for respect, trying to point out it's stupidity, but the people who do that rarely if ever listen to such arguments, and it usually furthers their enjoyment, getting a taste for torture, as it were.
I believe that the Wikis for Guild Wars are not of quality.
I believe that the main reason for this is that the people who are active on it, are territorial about the website for some reason; don't want other people to change it too much, and don't tolerate people who try.
This being the case, admins often overlook the malicious action of people who "~vandalized~" with the community, while in other situations, will ban someone with in-adequate, inappropriate, and biased justifications.
It is doomed to stay this way forever, though, since a single, prejudiced, territorial community seems to have control over it, and will not let it change.
These people will not let builds up if they are different from what they are used to seeing - without giving any regard to it's effectiveness, although they say they do.
Of course, many people are like that in almost every aspect of life - it's a shame that they latched on so tightly to this website.
