Forums: Index > Exclusion of information > Timed exclusions

We need a "timed exclusion policy" on articles created by a user (not third parties.) This is the third article (personal,) created by the article's pertaining person, that has been "excluded" on request in a very short time period.

If the person behind his/her article doesn't feel comfortable having it displayed on Wikifur, he/she should have not have started in the first place. Putting a motion forward that dictates that self articles asked to be excluded within X period of time to be instead deleted, until such time he/she feels like actually being included on Wikifur, or being left out of here all together.

As for time, I submit a grace period within 30 days, IMHO Spirou 05:08, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
I don't see a need for a specific policy. If they ask to be excluded, we protected-excluded the article(except if there's an important reason to keep it). What does deleting it instead gain? We have no lack of disk space. We delete it and the user can just recreate it with another article that would be better suited to User space, and we're back where we started. --Rat 05:32, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
I think what Spirou is getting at is that it's a waste of everyone involved's time and effort.--Kendricks Redtail 05:36, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
