WikiPhilosophy[edit]

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt, "Citizenship in a Republic,"

Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910


Too often, editors at Wikipedia forget why we are here - to provide an encyclopedia. The vast majority of the people who use that encyclopedia never create an account, never edit an article, and have no idea what any of our WikiSpeak means. And frankly, they don't care. We must take care that we are doing what is in the best interest of these uninvolved readers.

I am an avid WP:AFD patroller with a decidedly inclusionist bent. I am especially opposed to deleting articles at the request of the subject. Notability is not temporary, and is not something from which one can resign. Those who seek notoriety should not be allowed to whitewash their life. Wikipedia should seek to preserve knowledge, and deleting any sourced and verifiable article is a bad idea. Preserving negative information which meets our policies is just as important as preserving positive information. With apologies to F. Scott Fitzgerald, there are no second acts on the internet.
