To add a motto for review simply add your motto to the top of the in review section in this fashion:

===Example motto===
Origin and/or comments of/on your motto --~~~~
DO NOT repeat the motto in the second line. It is annoying, messy, and takes up more disk space on the Wikimedia servers. Anyone can vote for approval, simply vote Support or Oppose and if possible leave a reason why, decisions will be made after 7 days and they will be moved to either the Approved or Rejected subpages. The Overseer will make final determinations.
Only the overseers (they know who they are...) are permitted to post Approved or Rejected, for technical reasons. Please use Support or Oppose instead.

Overseers: If you approve/reject a motto, please move the motto to the appropriate list at the bottom of this page. If you support/oppose a motto, leave it where it be so that others may comment upon it.

  • Some people mean IPs when they refer to vandals. I suppose i am relating to an old discussion as to whether IPs should be blocked i saw (do you know where this is?). OK i am probably jumping into things. Sorry Simply south 18:26, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Support I'm liking these star wars quotes and I like this one better than the Dooku one. Oh and...
Comment What is up with all these links? Is that a norm or a goal of the motto of the day? To link to all these wikipolicies and terms and such because if it is then I do not have much to offer because I am in no way familiar with the wikiculture. Just a question. --Goodface87 06:24, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
Any and all suggestions are appreciated, and by no way the inclusion of links is necessary, it's just that some mottos, like this one need them for clarification reasons. Plus, you can always ask the others about certain links, and someone will surely inform you. I myself don't know all the Wikipedia related pages, so don't worry. --May the Edit be with you, always. T-borg (drop me a line) 11:47, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
Thanks--Goodface87 17:07, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Support. Yuser31415 18:51, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Comment. Special:List of users is not a valid link. Special:Listusers is, however, so I changed it in the motto. WODUP 23:54, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. It's a little obscure, but how about impossibly outnumbered? (I support that too). --Tewy 01:39, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
  • That can also do. I just thought if someone sees that long list, it'll make a bigger impression than if he saw a simple number. Discuss which version is better and if the motto is good, approve that version. --May the Edit be with you, always. T-borg (drop me a line) 11:51, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Oppose for several reasons: (1) Yin is not evil; it's a dark, passive, feminine force, and identifying it with vandalism is both offensive (to me, anyway) and somewhat incongruous (vandalism being definitely an active kind of thing); (2) Yin and Yang are both disambigs; the page is Yin and Yang, which kind of contradicts the explicit meaning; (3) I oppose on principle the approval of any more mottos linking to Wikipedia:Vandalism unless they are really, really funny. I skimmed through this page earlier and there are just way too many of them. - AdelaMae (t - c - wpn) 20:54, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

My other ideas were "Evolving" and "All of the above". "Public" could also link to Wikipedia:Copyrights. Any other suggestions? --Tewy 02:22, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

    • That's another option. But then you'd have to change the other letters to keep it consistent. Right now they describe what Wikipedia is, not what makes it up. So if you or anyone else can think of some more things that are part of Wikipedia, that could work (Wikipedians, Articles, etc.) --Tewy 18:54, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Then Jimbo said, "Let there be Wikipedia."[edit]

This actually comes from the following reimagining of Genesis 1:1-13 (please bear with me on this one):

In the beginning, Jimbo created MediaWiki and Wikimedia. MediaWiki was empty and had no form. Darkness covered the ocean, and Jimbo's Spirit was moving over the ocean.
Then Jimbo said, "Let there be Wikipedia," and there was Wikipedia. Jimbo saw that Wikipedia was good, so he divided Wikipedia from the darkness. Jimbo named Wikipedia "day", and the darkness "night". Evening passed, and morning came. This was the first day.
Then Jimbo said, "Let there be something to divide the MediaWiki in two." So Jimbo made the air and placed some of the MediaWiki above the air, and some below. Jimbo named the air, "Wikimedia". Evening passed, and morning came. This was the second day.
Then Jimbo said, "Let the MediaWiki under Wikimedia be gathered together so the dry land will appear." And it happened. Jimbo named the dry land "categories" and the MediaWiki that was gathered together "portals". Jimbo saw that this was good.
Then Jimbo said, "Let the categories produce articles—some with information, and others to disambiguate information." And it happened. Wikipedia produced articles with information, and disambiguation pages. Jimbo saw that all this was good. Evening passed, and morning came. This was the third day.

It is true that without minor edits, there will be no such things as fixing grammar, spelling, etc. And without major edits, can an article be considered an article? Any kind of edit (excluding vandalism) is the reason why Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. SGFF(@) 18:05, 2 October 2006 (UTC)
