I’d like to explore the idea of turning deletion into a good faith process – I’ve made a few notes in my Wikipedia userspace already. I thought I’d flag this now before I do serious work on it, in case I’m reinventing the wheel.
Inspired by SJ Klein of OLPC.
I should add – the Appropedia community has been much more good-faith than my experience of Wikipedia. But then, Appropedia is still a fraction of the size of Wikipedia. Maintaining a civil community as we grow will be a challenge, but a critical one. We’ll be paying very close attention to large yet supportive communities such as wikiHow.
