Wikiversity:Policy review

From Wikiversity
Jump to: navigation, search

The vast majority of Wikiversity policies were either approved after discussions in the summer of 2006 or with little or no discussion shortly afterward, and certainly before there had been much time to see what sort of content was going to be developed on the project. As part of the growth and development of Wikiversity, these policies should be re-examined to see if they fit into what Wikiversity has evolved into over the past 2 years.

Policies at the root of recent disputes[edit]

  • Naming policies: both WV:NC and WV:MOS have been enforced by some users, but have never been approved.
  • Deletion policies: deletion has become a topic of entrenched debate since at least August, 2008
  • Civility policy: civility and related issues have been a major issue over the past few months
  • Rollback policy: several users have been accused of violating this policy, though there was never any discussion about making it official
