What's Jimbo doing?


  • Jimbo and another wiki editor trapped in an edit lock.
  • Where is the edit link? It should be here somewhere...
  • We have to find the edit button so we can edit a way out of here!
  • Of course, sometimes drastic measures were taken to keep Jimbo out of the really important decisions, like where to go for lunch.
  • Even pre-internet civilasations had dead-end articles.
  • "Hmmm...I don't looks notable enough to me."
  • "We've been blocked?"
  • "...and so we decided that allowing double-redirects wouldn't be such a good idea after all."
  • "So this is where those red links go to...."
  • "Preposterous! Impossible! This place didn't show up on Google, and yet still exists!"
  • "So this is what it's like to be blocked eh?"

Lookout, Jimbo!

  • "can anyone help me? i don't know windows..."
  • Jimbo, having just woken from a bad dream in which every page of Wikipedia had it's history erased and replaced by pages and pages of vandalism/gibberish. That or he dreamed someone hit the server with a hammer (which probably happens every few minutes, judging by the constant downtime)

  • "How do I shot web?"
  • How's work, Jimbo? "I just got PKed...They took all my gold!"
