Nature / differences of WE/WP content

Jump to: navigation, search

Wikipedia's experience provides a useful reference point for informing the development of guidelines and policies in WE. At the same time, we need to think carefully about the differences in the nature of WE content.

For example, developing educational materials intended to serve different student audiences is different from developing consensus on an "objective" encyclopaedia article according to WP's neutral point of view (NPOV) policy. Consequently -- it seems to me that our work on consensus should focus on guidelines for decision-making rather than the development of a consenus "policy" -- see my earlier post.

I completely agree with you. It is the real challenge we are going to face in making polices for WE. However, policies are also being influenced by the technology in use, therefore a lot from the WP will stand good for wiki reasons <smile>
