Libertarian Wiki talk:About

From Libertarian Wiki

I have something that I would like to add to this page, but it's protected:

Regarding Wikipedia: We may want to discuss an topic that is already covered in Wikipedia. Rather than re-writing all of that information, it is probably best to link to the wikipedia article ([[wikipedia:ArticleName|ArticleName]] rather than reproduce all of that information here. The Libertarian Wiki articles can just cover the topic from the libertarian perspective and let Wikipedia cover it from a general perspective. We cannot simply copy information from Wikipedia because that information is licensed under the GNU GPL, which means that it cannot be put into the public domain (the Libertarian Wiki license).

Regarding page protection: Protected pages are a hassle, and I would only protect a page if there has been a problem with that page, or if the information is very brief. For Wikipedia, policy is constantly evolving and subject to community input, so I would not protect policy as a matter of course, as seems to have been done with the policies stated on the "About" page. Perhaps a very brief mission statement should be protected, but I wouldn't protect much more without good reason.

I have unprotected the page and moved your comment to it. Paul Studier 00:23, 18 Jan 2005 (PST)

Quote from the About page: "For example, LPOC,CA is the regional article for The Libertarian Party of Orange County, California, and LPOC,CA Calendar is it's calendar."

Please change "it's" to "its". "It's" means "it is" or "it has," whereas "its" is an adjective used to describe possession. The calendar belongs to the LPOC, thus "its" is the correct choice.

Done, thank you. Sorry about the delay. WikiSysop 18:21, 16 Jan 2005 (PST)
