Welcome to the Wiki, Amanda! —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards
2011-03-09 08:37:34 There are several pages that are pretty insensitive in the way they approach topics—Tragic Events and Town Characters being prime examples. One thing to bear in mind, though, is that Davis Wiki doesn't try to be an encyclopedia. Rather than striving to present things from a neutral point of view, leaving all opinion out of it, it tries to collect many opinions and represent many points of view. That happens through collaborative editing and, in the case of disagreement, a bit of discussion. Rewriting the entry, as you did, is the perfect approach. If others disagree with your edit, they can make the changes they feel appropriate. If there's a conflict of opinion, usually a brief discussion leads to a compromise that represents both sides.

I know that wikidavis isn't an encyclopedia, or trying to be one, but I believe that a neutral point of view is an important thing for an information reference. I also know that that is a lot to ask sometimes. I just hope that articles can maintain a polite and neutral tone, and opinions can be saved for comments. Wishful thinking I guess, lol. —AmandaD
