Wikipedia talk:Academic use
What does "F" means?
"a grade of F" is meaningful only in some countries, not in all.
Is "acceptable" acceptable? No, it's not
Revert change of page name
I strongly disagree with the change from Academic use to Academic disclaimer. There is an academic use for wikipedia--it is merely that wikipedia can not be used for all academic purposes. I am reverting the change, pending discussion on the talk page here. In general, name changes on an important page like this, should not be carried out unilateraly. announcing them ofn the VP is a preliminary to discussion, not a subsitute for it.

It is always considered...
Not so. I've been a professor, and I did not only permit but encourage its use in student papers for definitions within its field, or even for background, in the sort of subjects it is known to cover well. Many others do the same. sources are to be used appropriately, and blanket injunctions are not the sort of way to teach. It's an encyclopedia--they have their purposes. I'd accept "generally considered" DGG (talk) 00:30, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
No point to this, but thought I'd point out how funny it is that I just got an IM from a member of staff at my school who was doing research into using Wikipedia for academic use. He pointed out the inaccuracy in his current version, which was of course edited by an IP at 15:23. The edit was missed in recent changes, and might not have got corrected for a while otherwise. Just interesting, is all —αlεx•mullεr 20:09, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
