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.
Doing Today:. Coding For Martin, then for Walter. You know. Real life stuff. also: Jogging out in the fresh air. :-)
- /Lost functionalities. Contrary to what you might expect, Wikipedia has lost several functions and abilities over time. Here's a list.
- /Refactoring RFA, and /rfatest
- Discussion I'd like to watch: sv:Användardiskussion:213.101#Konsensus och "consensus decision-making".
- The digital ice age <- however, the solutions proposed here can at times be illegal. (except if you were backing up most wikipedias, of course. Except en.wikipedia, technically.)
- m:Success stories - how has Wikimedia changed your life?
- User:Demi/SuperTextPopupHistoryAnnotate. The name sucks. The description of the idea sucks. But if you manage to read it anyway, the actual described concept rocks. I wonder if I could try this at some point? USC now has implemented something...
- that might interact in an interesting way with this - USC's system color-codes an article according to the "trustworthiness" of its author as determined by how long that author's edits tend to last... Demi's proposal would change the dynamics of how long an author's edits would tend to stick around, so watching the interactions between the two systems would be terrifically amusing. <- mel's writing ;-)
- who runs wikipedia , rereading some of Aaron Swartz's writing. His thoughts are spot on. :-)
- how to conduct business (or in fact, any conversation)
- Track II diplomacy (direct link to original source)
- WARNING ABOUT DELETION. (hey, the text itself was in all caps too :-) )
- de:Benutzer:DerHexer/Vier_Tage_in_der_englischsprachigen_Wikipedia. Google Translation
- WP:HAIKU heh!
- User:Badlydrawnjeff/Field_guide_to_proper_speedy_deletion Hmmm... <scratches head>
- effect of voice chat on games - "Those who used text-only chat experienced 'drops in trust and happiness' amongst their fellow players; those who used voice chat did not.". This also works in other online communities. Mediation becomes a lot easier with voice available.
- What's more important? The Ghost, or the Shell? (or, what we can learn from Masamune Shirow :-) )
- User:SOPHIA ... wasn't there an entire wiki dedicated to her worship? ut oh, what will this edit unleash?
- Es ist nicht deine Schuld das die Welt ist wie sie ist, es wär nur deine Schuld wenn sie so bleibt. Deine Schuld -- Die Ärzte
- OODA_Loop, several essays linked from this page are useful
- User:Dragons flight/Log analysis, yay statistics!
- Wikipedia:How_to_contribute_to_Wikipedia_guidance, interesting, must watch. :-)
- Wikipedia:The_Zen_of_Wikipedia, I'm going to have to meditate on this... Ommmm!
- Wikipedia:Levels of competence, Jossi wrote this. <scratches head> Looks cool.
- OODA_Loop, I often try to work quicky, and get inside other people's decision cycle. Originally this is a method designed for warfare to confuse people and force them to mis-react. You can also turn it around and use it to enlighten people, and cause them to react well. I worry that sometimes perhaps I don't quite manage to pull that off.
- fighting is good!?!? meatball:HealthyConflict <- et tu, Meatball?
User:Zenwhat/Sandbox Ooh, very pretty, I hope it shows up in mainspace. How many people put that much work into anything? --Kim Bruning (talk) 13:57, 7 February 2008 (UTC)Awwww, where did that go?
- "Why we banned legos", a discussion on power structures.
- Economist: the battle for wikipedia's soul: "The result is that novices can quickly get lost in Wikipedia's Kafkaesque bureaucracy.".
