"Adding tags -- the favorite past time of Wikipedia editors incapable of creating content. Wouldn't your time be better spent actually fixing the problem?"

Favorite Wiki-quotes[edit]

  • You know, one of the most interesting experiences on wiki for me is that because of the group dynamics, one has to be much more careful with what one says or does than one has to be when writing scholarly articles for journals or "classic" encyclopedias, although those are signed and credited to one's name. So, anonymity and the wiki system makes one not more bold, but less so. Clossius 06:56, 5 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • The way to avoid being rude by using capitalized gibberish is to use plain English to refer to Wikipedia policies. I strongly object to the overload of jargon that pervades Wikipedia discussions these days. The use of capitalized gibberish in lieu of plain English in discussions devalues meaning and interferes with useful discussion. In addition, I have found that communications laden with such comments are more likely to be in the nature of "power answers" or even outright threats, rather than legitimate attempts at discussion.

  • I can NOT emphasize this enough. There seems to be a terrible bias among some editors that some sort of random speculative 'I heard it somewhere' pseudo information is to be tagged with a 'needs a cite' tag. Wrong. It should be removed, aggressively, unless it can be sourced. This is true of all information, but it is particularly true of negative information about living persons."[1] Jimmy Wales Tue May 16 20:30:15 UTC 2006
