RE: endangering Hampedia tenets:
This is an internet based wiki of Hampshire knowledge, and mediations should be able to be carried out in the same manner. Public outcry was more than visible on relevant talk pages, which were outright ignored by the Hampedia board in their deliberations. How can Hampedia begin to get off the ground as an online repository of cited, factual, information and knowledge if all that is online is ignored? I sent my complaint to you outlining what was wrong with the policies at hand by email as well, and from what has (not) happened - (a vote, to be carried out by the Hampedia Board of Trustees), it was completely ignored.
So, if you want to call me paranoid, go ahead, but please explain to me how covering up cited, factual information, then filibustering on a vote about the appropriate display of information is paranoid. I'm simply defending the freedom of knowledge and information on Hampedia.
Where am I not being constructive in my desire to change Hampedia for the better, and reduce content management by a board? I believe I am quite justified in my pursuits, as NPOV use of Hampedia is at current being breached, and cited, factual information is being effectively censored by the current board (I do not assume it was the board's intention).
See Talk:Sam Light for an example. (Rob 02:42, 27 November 2009 (UTC))
we should put governance information somewhere on the front page, you have any ideas?
I've been editing that at length- could we have "Governance Information" redirect to a page just called "Governance," which would have all the info currently on gov info? It seems more official that way... Also, will it be possible to provide direct links (i.e. downloads) to documents? Wiki doesn't do that, but it seems, to me at least, as if this place would be a great repository for all information concerning Hampshire, and that's a lot more than the short summaries provided on the actual page...

- Master of Hampedia? I think not.
- Um, so, just out of curiosity, what'll happen if we break the copyright thing down there that says "DO NOT SUBMIT COPYRIGHTED WORK WITHOUT PERMISSION!"?
- My issue is this: I don't want to break the copyright code, but god bless it, it's gonna be hard to get any kind of information on anything that isn't Hampshire into this thing. Like...everyone copyrights their stuff on the web. So, in short, how do we get non-copyrighted material onto Hampedia? (WillBrideau 23:54, 20 March 2008 (MST))
- I think we should allow copyrighted material to be posted and labelled as fair-use. -- Adam Krellenstein 10:08, 23 March 2008 (MST)
