The display of this page (content section) on IE8 is overlapping the icons on the left and the text that follows them, so some of the text is covered by the icons. • • • Peter (Southwood) (talk): 05:29, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Suggestions[edit]

I've formatted this using the {{intro to}} template to keep formatting consistent and centrally controlled with the other Help:introduction to pages. I've a few suggestions for other updates and improvements:

  • Conduct is a bit wordy. Maybe there's a way to cut down wordcount by 20%?
  • Are the nutshells necessary for such short paves? Could they just be lead sentences?
  • Somehow "policies and guidelines" feels really dry and may reduce readers. Perhaps there are other main titles that are less intimidating like "Principles" or even "content and conduct" or something?

What do other people think? T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 11:53, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

NPOV is not necessairly objective[edit]

Neutral point-of-view (or NPOV) means content is written objectively and without bias, merely presenting the facts and notable viewpoints of others.

WP:NPOV page avoids any use of the word objective. Actually, the only use is to respond to the misunderstanding where NPOV might be thought of as a state of objectivity.

Let's find a better way to present such an important part of future Wikipedians orientation to WP. Calexit (talk) 23:26, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
