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.
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. In addition, the Tough Organization of Elite Stuff released a statement, condemming the administrators and requesting that Zarel Smith be promoted to the role of administrator.
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. Three users were eventually banned. The Council of 18 was a group created and led by Leon Montan on 17 February in order to unify the movement. According to the administration, the movement gave Smith a negative view, which resulted in his planned promotion to an administrator being delayed by two months until 1 May in order to not satisfy the protesters. Another request which was by TOES read; "Jayden Lycon as Wiki Patroller and Discord Moderator", which Lycon did become a patroller several months after the movement on 20 September.
