w:Wikipedia:Do not disrupt Wikipedia to illustrate a point[edit source]

Ironically the above Wikipedia policy is probably worth a read in relation to the context in which JWSchmidt created this page, it would appear that there isn't a local equivilent. My suggestion would be that, rather than trying to make a point and mock Wikipedia editors disguised as an attempt to create "a promotional movie that illustrates and describes Wikiversity"[1], JWSchmidt should look to ensure that the deletion policies and processes are clear so that when Wikipedia editors begun contributing here that they are clear of the differences between the two projects. It would seem foolish to do anything which could have the potential to alienate many who contribute to Wikipedia, of which I'm sure many are potential useful contributors here. What does SLP stand for then? Adambro 15:32, 31 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is an interesting puzzle. Since my user name is "Trout of Doubt" I sometimes use the shorter "TOD" (or "ToD"). I suspect that JWSchmidt might be planning a song about someone who is "SLP". I'll check the list of user accounts and try to figure out some candidates. Gee, I guess this is my first learning project! --Trout of Doubt 15:55, 31 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I did a search and found "User talk:Slp" at Wikipedia. I do not find anyone called "Slp" at Wikiversity. Maybe "SLP" is not someone's name or username. Maybe I can ask JWSchmidt. --Trout of Doubt 16:06, 31 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
