Issues and tasksEdit

Disadvantages of having strict policiesEdit

A disadvantage of having strict policy is editors often stop editing if they are scolded and pointed towards policy. In June-July 3 editors stopped editing for this reason. For small Wikipedias it is an issue.

Policies to be createdEdit

In previous meet-ups and during the Kannada Wikipedians meet-up on 21 June, User:Pavanaja made a list of policies which need to be created: Content policies

  • Neutral point of view
  • No Original Research
  • Verifiability

June 21 Kannada Wikipedia meetup

  • Biography of living persons
    • Notability
    • Conflict of Interest
  • Article title
  • Image policy
    • Fair use policy (This will include maximum image size eg. 1000px*1000px limit)
    • Copyrighted images (similar to Fair use)
    • Kannada Wikipedians are discussing if this can be made a policy: images without EXIF data will be deleted
  • Deletion policy
  • Blocking policy
