This essay is now over a year old, and has had quite a lot of use in debates without much change from the original. I have updated the essay to make it stronger and respond to updates in the situation e.g. changes to WP:N. Any constructive feedback is still welcome.

User space[edit]

I have noticed this essay is suddenly being used for debates about user space such as Wikipedia talk:User page#Deletion review regarding indefinite hosting clause. I think I should point out that this essay was written about content in the main space, and that is where the essay's point is focused. It does not at present address the issue of user space content i.e. should article drafts in the user space be kept even if they are hardly ever edited due to potential? Though I suppose that certainly is relevant to the concept of potential, and a bit about it can be added to the essay. I am not entirely sure how to do it at this time, and it will depend on how the RfC (linked above) goes. Camaron | Chris (talk) 13:45, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
