Talk:Tricky questions to expect

From Outreach Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Q1: The trouble with WP is that it only works in practice. It has more variable quality than other sources - at any given moment, an article could have a blatant error. But on average, WP has fewer errors than other general encyclopedias (links).
Q3: Perhaps we could... but isn't it awesome that we don't? We make the internet not suck. How any of you really enjoy seeing ads when you're browsing the web?
Q4: I think this is no longer the case for most teachers -- data would be good, but teachers librarians are more likely these days to list WP as a resource for their classes.

appropriate content?[edit]

Not sure if this is an appropriate spot for this - I'm only just dipping my toe in this wiki now, and am interested in discussing and forming best practice for outreach to schools (secondary level really - so minors) - the issue of inappropriate content (explicit violence, sexual content, culturally insensitive stuff etc.) may raise its head. Is it worth adding to this section? Privatemusings 01:14, 2 February 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Absolutely -- please do! I think this would be an excellent addition to this document. -Pete F 01:43, 2 February 2010 (UTC)[reply]
thanks pete - I've been browsing round this wiki a bit, though time has been somewhat limited - I do plan on diving in here, maybe next week, or whenever time permits :-) best, Privatemusings 07:41, 6 February 2010 (UTC)[reply]
I got a little 'bold' and went ahead with a (very) rough first draft - might need a wider discussion to really settle in though? Have asked PF on his talk page if there's a better spot to discuss a bit broader... cheers, Privatemusings 07:53, 6 February 2010 (UTC)[reply]
