Deletion Policy from Wikipedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi folks,

Anil, thanks for bring this wealth of material from Wikipedia; always better to avoid wheel reinvention!

Regarding proposed deletion: I think this could be problematic. Taking my own example, if you proposed deleting one of my pages, in many circumstances I would not be back within seven days and would wonder what happened to my page. I think this part of Wikipedia's model works because there are many more eyes watching each page. On the positive side, I don't imagine that there will be an active army of Weducators proposing deletion, and those that do will have observed the other criteria before proposing deletion.

Hi Declan,

You are right. Since WikiEducator is an online collaborative OER development platform mostly used by recognized Academicians/Educators/Academic Institutions, let us expect only rare requirements of deletion. Therefore we may add a general deletion policy statement in the beginning. I have just attempted a draft that you may like to see.
