Why did you mission tag the public school article?[edit]

Hi Kosterortiizbrock.
I can see you mission tagged the public school article, but without leaving any explanation on the talk page. Could you elaborate on why you think the article is off mission?
As far as I can see, the UK part of it might be seen as a bit tangential to a very strict interpretation of RW's mission, but considering such phenomena as teach the controversy and classroom prayer, the US branch is definitely on mission. ScepticWombat (talk) 14:57, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

The UK article is a seemingly random addition, and the U.S. part was just taken from main article on the subject. Without the UK part it would be a clone stub and like I said it links to the main article on the U.S. subject. So in short one part is irrelevant to the mission statement the rest is covered. Kosterortiizbrock (talk) 15:02, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
Fair 'nough though I'd disagree about the UK bit being "a seemingly random addition" as it seems to me that it fits well with other articles covering UK society and politics (basically, the mission statement has, in practice, been expanded to include various social justice themes, presumably through a generous interpretation of point 3 of RW:MISSION: "Explorations of authoritarianism and fundamentalism" and there's also the "loophole" in the "appendix" to RW:MISSION: "However, the wiki's mainspace welcomes many articles that do not relate to the primary missions of RationalWiki providing that they are factually accurate and of interest to the community at large").
Anyway, rather than leaving a mission tag which might not be seen by anyone, I suggest you nominate public school for deletion and make your case in the accompanying "reason" sections (in the AfD tag in the article and in the entry on the AfD list). That way you'll get the problem into the limelight and a keep/delete vote. (Just in case you're wondering, anyone can nominate and vote in AfD votes as the franchise requirements only pertains to punishment and policy votes). ScepticWombat (talk) 15:22, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
Alright, it doesn't matter I will just remove it I am trying to write a detailed very referenced article right now about the Ethiopian Creation story and I'm trying to strictly follow the Manual of Style so this is getting to hectic to do too many things. Give me one second and it will be gone. Kosterortiizbrock (talk) 15:28, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
No worries, you can always get back to it when you've got the time. Anyway, it's great that you're prioritising adding new content to RW :-D (not that clean-up isn't important, but there are so many articles still to be written). ScepticWombat (talk) 16:01, 19 July 2015 (UTC)


Sorry, but you've been demoted - enjoy your mop & bucket. And congratulations in advance on getting the full franchise tomorrow! ScepticWombat (talk) 08:42, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
