Oh, God! I rather thought we'd set aside this thing of "don't tell the
general community, there's a subset of self-appointed experts who are
the sole authority on foo" once and for all more than a year ago,
after the Community Justice/Civility Noticeboard fiasco.
I'm so, so out of touch ...
"once and for all" must be a figment of your history-non-repeating
Being "in" touch is exhausting, stay out!
Re: noticeboards: See the header template
Noticeboards are no different than policy/guideline talkpages - all
are run by "self-appointed experts"! and often by those at the
extremes of the wiki-philosophy spectrum.
Re: civility noticeboard: See [[Wikipedia:Wikiquette alerts]] and
[[Wikipedia:Community sanction noticeboard]].
I'm all too aware of how much redundancy/duplication/overlap there is
throughout our Help/WP pages, and how overwhelmed much of it is by the
overenthusiastic-and-uninformed (*cough RfA cough* etc). However, I'm
also continually surprised that it doesn't all come crashing to a
halt, and at how few good-contributors seem to actually get burnt-out
by it all.
(Also, Kim Bruning mentioned [[Nomic]] to me in passing, a year ago,
which put everything in perspective!)
