Wikiversity the Movie/SLP

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This project encourages Wikiversity participants to create songs on a theme. One or more of these creations could be included in "Wikiversity the Movie" as an illustration of an interesting type of learning project at Wikiversity.

What the song theme is about[edit | edit source]

This music project is concerned with making new songs about Wikipedia editors who have (often for years) been self-styled "cops" at Wikipedia. What happens when such editors come to Wikiversity and Wikiversity participants try to deal with them?

John's draft[edit | edit source]

  • ABC (song) - I use the song "ABC", and substitute "SLP" for "ABC"
