Let us try inclusiveness[edit]

Let us try inclusiveness. Apparently here they are more about adding possible learning opportunities here than deleting, so let us try this: Add your own vision of goals of the project (make it as similar as you can or you might as well just create your own seperate project) and then create subpages as you need them. Remembering that original research backed up by evidence is allowed here, but the end goal is creating a useful learning resource. Go for it. Bring your friends. WAS 4.250 22:04, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm hoping we can integrate your goals with those of WAS. It might not be obvious to others, but it's manifestly obvious to me that I need your talents and skills as much as I need those that WAS brings to the project. I would like to produce output in multiple formats, ranging from traditional academic text to innovative multi-media formats. I call that edutainment — a hybrid between traditional education and modern entertainment media. —Moulton 08:31, 12 July 2008 (UTC)


I noticed you are a participant in Ethical Management of the English Language Wikipedia. Could you give me some advice on what I could do to help the resource. Thanks, Anonymous101 19:59, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Special privileges[edit]

Hi. I liked your comment:

If the policies were enforced equally on all editors, regardless of edit count, regardless of "status" in the hierarchy etc, this "insular" quality would probably become much less important, since people wouldn't get so wrapped up in the "How to win friends and influence people" aspects of "the game".

There's a clique of a couple dozen contributors who "run" the evolution, ID, and global warming articles (about 200 total pages altogether). Since enforcement is by "consensus", it would take a group twice as large as this (maybe 50 people) to stop their subversion of NPOV. --Ed Poor 14:02, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes but there a lot of people like me that agree that the group running it ends up with accurate NPOV articles, for the most part (but Moulton was mostly right about what he brought to their attention). My objection is to the way they achieve the result, not so much the end article contents. The policies make keeping article content accurate a pain for anyone that does not actually like pushing people around. The fault lies in those policies. The bullying is merely a consequence of policies that don't work anymore. WAS 4.250 14:10, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
