Nope, it's still there. https://wt.social/wt/stop-the-gender-madness There isn't any "report subwiki" option (at least not that I could find) so I am not sure what power people currently have to stop stuff like this from happening.

What kinds of tools are you planning on introducing to help with this as you grow?

Thanks for doing this, Jimmy!

Yesterday, WT:Social recommended that I join a subwiki that’s dedicated to attacks on trans people. Do you think this is okay? If not, how do you plan to keep things like this from happening in the future?

This is a really good point. Since I've often been critical of WT:Social, I should also give credit where credit is due: I was very glad to see them specifically call out a desire for diversity in their invitation for admins.

That said, there's a question as to how far to take ideological diversity. Does it also include anti-vaxxers? White supremacists? Fascists? People who align with fascists but use different language? These are hard problems, and it'll be interesting to see where WT:Social draws the line.

Thanks very much for the responses, and thanks also for deleting the subwiki. I'm working on a followon post about WT:Social and will include a link to this discussion - I'll drop it here and tag you on Twitter when it's ready.
