Debate:Do Wikipedia's flaws endanger the project?
I recently flipped through Wikipedia and I've noticed several problems. The biggest is the insane amount of Wikilawyering going on. It seems that almost nothing can done because everybody is throwing around their version of the rules, and everyone else has a counterrule that seems to invalidate the first. We're currently watching CP grind to a halt because of their lack of clear direction, lack of set rules and ability to protest, but it seems to me that WP is having the same end result for the opposite reasons. Any thoughts? SirChuckBBoom Goes the Dynamite 00:20, 19 November 2008 (EST)
- Please elaborate a bit. I really have only been a bit of a wikignome there for the last 6 months, popping in and looking after the few things noone else would do if I didn't. - User 00:29, 19 November 2008 (EST)
- Feel free to look at my Wikipedia contributions on talk pages for many examples, I "wikilawyer" as a hobby. tmtoulouse 00:57, 19 November 2008 (EST)
