Re: Psychological correlates of deletionism/inclusionism?
I came here in 2006, and one of the things i wanted to do was to write
about things I considered important. I very quickly found that these
topics were considered less than notable by those people active in
deciding whether to keep articles.
I soon realized I would not get far arguing for my specific topics to be
better covered, as there were too few people interested in doing the work
for them,. I deliberately adopted a general position of strong inclusionism
in the hope that those interested in other topics often considered
non-notable would also work for a general relaxation of standards, and thus
include my topics also. My catchphrase was that we needed to have tolerance
for each others' interests. And so it proved: the very restrictive
arguments common then are rarely heard at present.
