Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists


Est omnino difficile iudicare inclusionis meritum cuiusdam rei in encyclopædia cum ratio sciendi quid populi referat incerta sit, sed nihilominus aliquid encyclopædiam dedecet

It is generally difficult to judge the worthiness of a particular topic for inclusion in an encyclopedia considering that there is no certain way to know what interests people, but some topics nevertheless are not fit for an encyclopedia.

This motto reflects the desire of these Wikipedians to be reluctant, but not entirely unwilling, to remove articles from Wikipedia.

Something that needed to be said...

All right, I'm going to make one quick comment here and I'm back to my self-imposed one article exile. A lot of people here, and I won't say who specifically, because these people should know who they are, need to calm down. I will be very honest and say that I'm finding cries of "abuse" very upsetting and hard to stomach, and it has nothing to do with my being an admin or who I agree or disagree with. I've been working on an article about someone subjected to actual abuse on a level so horrifying it's quite literally impossible to imagine, and I can't begin to understand how flare-ups that in the grand scheme of things are such minor, trivial problems, are causing so many vicious comments and hurt feelings. Our work together here should be our armor, not some sharp, angry, burning sword. I would strongly recommend that everyone here find an article to work on for a while; not the cliche "random article", but something that gives you a nice tug at the heartstrings. It feels great to be out there doing work on something you genuinely care about, and I assure you it'll help you regain the sense of why you're here. -- The Blade of the Northern Lights [1]
