Subject: [Wmfcc-l] Gibraltarpedia etc.
To: Communications Committee <wmfc...@lists.wikimedia.org>
One thing we don't seem to have commented upon (and refuted) is the
perceived 'favouritism' that the current coverage of Gibraltarpedia,
Monmouthpedia, etc has suggested exists. So far everything reads like they
had "special treatment" endorsed by WMUK and others.
Thing is - bypassing the whole 'paid editing' thing - we actually
*encourage* specialist subject 'attacks' and usually call them editathons
or projects. One example I noticed on the BBC News website today was the
upcoming work with the Royal Institution (
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-19675169 ) and there have been
*plenty* of others around the world.
So far the coverage seems slanted that Gibraltar and Monmouth got something
'more' than we usually offer. Maybe we should be pointing out that we
welcome this behaviour; it isn't "special treatment".
