Why? You would
be better advised to draft in userspace rather than
just type straight into the box, but I don't understand why you think
it doesn't still work in principle.
I can't do now what I did then. IP's cannot create new articles, and
you have to wait four days after creating an account to create a new
In fact "A user who edits through an account they have registered,
immediately create pages in any namespace (except the MediaWiki
namespace, and limited to 8 per minute)" while "Autoconfirmed status is
required to move pages, edit semi-protected pages, and upload files or
upload a new version of an existing file". Seems there are
misconceptions. (From [[Wikipedia:User access levels]]).
You just lost me. It doesn't still work either in
principle or in
I was making was that we were not the high-ground; we
don't exist to publish academic research.
No, we exist to regurgitate
Hmm. Not sure I agree, but I think we'd head into a primary versus
secondary sourcing argument. I'd certainly argue our mission would be
to contextualise and explain the research through recourse to
secondary sources, rather than to simply regurgitate it. I think
there's a viable argument that regurgitating it would fall foul of NOT
The closure was a compromise, rather than a consensus emerging.
([[Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2009 September 11#Deans of
Lincoln]], for mavens.) While "Dean" and "Lincoln" were both deemed
individually ambiguous, one side only was disambiguated. But not for
a specific clash. So in a sense I lost the argument, it seems. But it
could have been worse.
Hmm. Yes, interesting debate. That's one of the reasons I avoid CFD
these days. I think a major point that got missed is that no-one asked
the question of at what point would context not do the
disambiguating. Only then would there be a need for disambiguating.
And only if
the category page wasn't there to help out with an
explanation. I really don't see that you can make as full an explanation
of the category in the title as you could with a couple of paragraphs on
the category page. It seems to me that the editable part of the page is
provided for that.
