Thanks to a recent hype which brought a great influx of netizens, most of which are ignorant of how Wikipedia works, the Scots Wikipedia is about to be deleted completely. Cause democracy, right, Wikimedia doesn't distinguish between experienced users and occasional passers-by, not even when we are at full hype and making hasty decisions is the last thing to do.

As a long time editor of a number of similar projects (though not with equally large problems), this makes me desperate. Is this the kind of thing I've devoted fifteen years of my life to? People are already arguing that all wikis in minor languages must be nuked - including my babies. Please WMF, keep these people at bay. Protect the values you have been upholding since 2001, and block any mob decisions that would ruin the whole thing!
