Article should be Deleted[edit]

This is a argument against the tragedy of the commons, not an independent idea.(67.167.31.55 (talk) 22:29, 20 March 2010 (UTC))

I don't believe that's the case. Under some circumstances tragedy of the commons occurs. Under other conditions inverse commons occurs.Woz2 (talk) 23:33, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Cornucopia of the Commons[edit]

Dan Bricklin wrote an article “The Cornucopia of the Commons: How to get volunteer labor” which should be mined and cited here. See: http://www.bricklin.com/cornucopia.htm --Lbeaumont (talk) 01:50, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia itself as an example of inverse commons?[edit]

Wikipedia itself is a prime example of inverse commons so I think it should be mentioned here. Woz2 (talk) 03:22, 28 December 2011 (UTC)


Move?[edit]

I think this article should be moved to comedy of the commons (because the original citation called it that and it smacks of WP:OR to use a different name). The lead should explain that "comedy" is in the sense of "drama with a happy outcome." Thoughts? Woz2 (talk) 23:33, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

I agree completely, especially in view of the fact that inverse commons doesn't even make sense, or at least does not fit the intended meaning. Inverse tragedy of the commons would be the correct title, but that would be OR as well if it's not found in the sources. I'm taking this to WP:RM. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 10:11, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

Inverse commonsComedy of the commonsInverse commons is nonsense (what is meant is not the inverse of the commons themselves – which would at best be the anticommons as in the tragedy of the anticommons – but the inverse of the tragedy of the commons) and original terminology to boot. Better stick with the term used in the original citation, which is fine, as comedy simply means "drama with a happy outcome" here (as per User:Woz2 above), just as tragedy does not refer to the literary genre in this context, so the objection that comedy is somehow inappropriate here can be safely dismissed.

Wankathon[edit]

Does this really need to be such a narcissistic wankathon? For gods' sakes, use examples which are actually related to the tragedy of the commons argument. 60.242.48.18 (talk) 10:57, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
