Pommer's Law in action.

The chicken coop is for the avoidance, containment and resolution of cases of Headless Chicken Mode (HCM). Despite the name, this tends to be serious business.

This page can be used for reporting cases of administrative abuse (abuse of sysop or moderator abilities such as blocking, page deletion, or user rights management), general abuse (such as trolling, wandalism, and personal attacks), and conflicts which cannot be solved through normal talk page discussion (such as long-standing edit wars or article content disputes). Please be specific and include links to any relevant discussions, page edits or logs.

All editors are welcome to comment on the cases raised here, and to try to reach a consensus on any action to be taken. If no consensus can be reached, and the HCM seems to be escalating, moderators are expected to take some action. However, any serious or permanent solution, such as removal of rights or lengthy ban, requires a community vote here according to the guidelines laid out in our Community Standards.

Please try to resolve conflicts directly through discussion on other editor's talk pages before reporting them. It's better to just talk to someone rather than try to drag their name through the mud.

If the issue is not conflict resolution, but concerns RationalWiki policies, suggested changes to how things work around here, or similar matters of principle, please post on the Community Standards talk page instead.

When presenting a case here, be sure to include who you are accusing, what exactly you are accusing them of, some hard evidence, and a brief explanation. Since the sole purpose of the Coop is to resolve these disputes, don't post unrelated or more generalized complaints here — if you do, your posts will be moved off the page. Any vote started within 48 hours of filing will be deleted and you will be blocked.

Use {{CoopNotice}} to inform the user in question, so that they have a chance to discuss their actions here.

As a final note, if you think this page is a good tactic to apply in gaming the mob into doing your bidding, you may be shocked to see your post archived quite swiftly.

Koidevelopment[edit]

I think Koi is too heavy handed with blocks, so we need to block him. I'm being serious, just look at some of the blocks he's made. HCM Time (talk) 02:26, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Ok bud. Koi "dammit Koi stop making such long sigs!" development 02:47, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
Provide evidence. You're the one suggesting he be blocked, we don't have to dig through his block log. RoninMacbeth (talk) 23:42, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
RW doesn't have an "assume good faith" policy. That said: Assume good faith. Proving abuse is hard -- don't hate right out the gate. That said: Koi's blocks on Special:BlockList are hardly insane. Sir ℱ℧ℤℤϒℂᗩℑᑭƠℑᗩℑƠ (talk/stalk) 06:53, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
