WikiFur talk:What WikiFur is
- So was I! I guess nobody's quite bold enough to have their name on the first edit. *grin* --GreenReaper(talk) 06:08, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)
This was posted previously and I started to edit it into this article, but it occurred to me that folks may have missed it. Here it is one more time. I think it fits at the bottom of the "WikiFur is for furries and the furry fandom" section like so:
. . . so tell us about yourself!
Vanity articles, that is, articles about a person or project which are written by the article subject or someone involved with a project, are acceptable on WikiFur, unlike Wikipedia. In order for WikiFur to remain a useful resource for information, though, these articles need to be factual and concise. Articles which are written for humor value or are lacking in reliable, documentable sources are likely to be edited for accuracy, or if the information is not documentable, deleted altogether.
If you have humorous or non-factual information you would like to provide, provide a forum for commentary about yourself or your project, or wish to provide other non-encyclopedic information (within existing WikiFur policies and the boundaries of good taste), you are welcome to create a WikiFur account and post that in the User: namespace pages.
Any other thoughts before I add this in? --Duncan da Husky 13:10, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
under WikiFur is here to stay
I'd like to add a paragraph or so about trying to retain a sense of history - that edits concerning a changed situation should be made with this in mind. If a MUCK is shut down, if a person moves on, if a popular SL construct is removed, we want to know that they were there before they left. To delete historical content is as much an act of vandalism as replacing articles with random insults.
I think also that the policy for self-exclusion should mention this, but that's just my opinion: that removing yourself from the public record is also an act detrimental to our efforts. How many artists were influenced by Tygger Graf? How many readers will never know the comics she published? -- Siege(talk) 17:28, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
