The MicroWiki@Discord Administrative Protests of 2020, also known as The 18% Movement and Occupy Cafe Dullahan was a protest that began on 16 Februrary 2020, in the Cafe-Dullahan channel in MicroWiki@Discord.

Background

On 14 February 2020, Corvin I put out a suggestion to divide the entertainment and music channels and Zarel Smith suggested that administrators make an official response if something hits 8 reactions. On 16 February 2020, numerous Microwiki users changed their nicknames to reflect on the so-called '18%' active users on the server. The most commonly used was '! We are the 18%', however others such as '!UP THE 18% BOIS', '18% or bust' and others were used.

Aftermath

On 17 February 2020, it was announced by an Admin that a list was being made of individuals who had partaken in the Protests via spam and that a suitable punishment was currently being considered. This did not include people who had coined the username or those on the Wiki page itself. The term 'The Microwiki Genocide' (referring to the mass banning which would likely take place) was coined by Logan Ross.
