Someone else look at User:RightWolf2, Talk:Wikipedia, Wikipedia, please
I'm not objective because I've been editing the article myself. It seems to me that User:RightWolf2 has the impression that unsupported opinion is OK as long as it's conservative opinion, and is at least near the borderline of Conservapedia Commandment #6. It particularly bothers me that, in order to support the statement that
- "[Wikipedia's] Mediation Committee, Arbitration Committee, and number of site adminitrators contain a disproportionate number of homosexual members in comparison to demographic percentages within the Wikipedia Community."
he cites http://www.wikipedia-watch.org/ although the link page contains neither the word "homosexual" nor the word "gay." Perhaps there is relevant material on that site, but it's his job to find it and cite it, not to keep reinserting a link to this site's home page. Dpbsmith 16:58, 14 March 2007 (EDT)
- Wikipedia-Watch is Daniel Brandt's site. I don't know if it states that outright, but I try and look into it. RobS 17:04, 14 March 2007 (EDT)
- This here http://www.wikipedia-watch.org/hivemind.html I think is what he is refering to. RobS 17:10, 14 March 2007 (EDT)
- The word "homosexual" isn't on that page, either. Only one reference to "gay," an assertion that a Wikipedia administrator "attempt[ed] to falsely suggest that Brandt is gay."
- My objection is not that he's citing a strongly anti-Wikipedian website, although this should probably be made clear. The question is: does the site really say what he says it says, and, if so, where? Dpbsmith 19:00, 14 March 2007 (EDT)
- I think that's right; what the editor is probably suggesting is if someone did the actual leg work of checking those users cited on that list, they would come up with a high percentage disproportionate to the general population of people who openly confess to being gay. Of course this, in Wikipedia, would be considered Original research. RobS 19:03, 14 March 2007 (EDT)
We need to make sure that we removed current alerts after they have been handled. I propose that once someone has addressed a current alert, we only leave it up for a day max, because the current alert section is getting messy with comments.--Elamdri 20:23, 26 March 2007 (EDT)
- I also moved Current Alerts to the Top of the page, so we don't have to dig to find them.
