Topic: NPOV


  
  Wikipedia:Neutral point of view - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Contributors who have mastered the art of NPOV are invited to help develop the neutrality tutorial.
In that case the core of the NPOV policy is to let competing approaches of the same topic exist on the same page: work for balance, that is: divide space describing the opposing viewpoints according to reputability of the sources.
NPOV policy often means presenting multiple points of view.

 Sgwrs:Llywelyn Ein Llyw Olaf - Wicipedia
Naturally I don't agree that it is not NPOV - quite the opposite.
I wholeheartedly agree that overlooking the flaws of Llywelyn and Dafydd would not be NPOV, but I am surprised to see how far you have curbed your dislike for Edward.
Thus the impression is created that the conquest of Wales was all due to its learders' flaws and had nothing to do with the expansionist designs of Edward.

 Talk: Creationism/Archive 4 - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
I also agree with you that the evolutionists and the creationists have diametrically opposed approaches and conclusions--which is part of the etiology of the pathological process that generally has produced POV-sick pages biased toward the evolutionists when the creationists attempted to fairly represent history.
I can't imagine one article that would presume to sum all of that up (NPOV): especially since it is part of the culture-war, according to some who think they are fighting one, that the other side denies that such a culture-war is taking place.
NPOV dictates that the placement of views depends on the standing of their adherents.

 Wikibooks:NPOV dispute - Wikibooks
An NPOV (neutral, unbiased) module is an module that has been written without taking a stand on the issue in hand.
Probably the only grounds on which there could be an NPOV dispute over an module that actually was acceptable NPOV is when one or both of the parties to the dispute did not understand either the NPOV policy, or enough about the subject matter to realize that nothing controversial had actually been said.
Everyone can agree that marking an module as having an NPOV dispute is a temporary measure, and should be followed up by actual contributions to the module in order to put it in such a state that people agree that it has a NPOV.

 Is Wikipedia a Cult - JnanaBase   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
There is documented evidence that the NPOV policy is a form of dogma and it is explicitly stated as "non-negotiable".
The NPOV has numerous detailed prescriptions and even says that some words are taboo, which members call "words to avoid".
One vocal critics asserts that she met one person who got depressed for months after he got expelled because of non-adherence to the NPOV dogma, that by the way had been accepted without scientific proof of its correctness.

The original file is now at NPOV as description not prescription and is available for others to extend who share this concern.
I repeat, NPOV is not an adequate policy, and it does not overcome groupthink the way that it is being applied here and now.
Reversion (which I need to learn how to do BTW, clearly cutting, editing and pasting is more work and out of style) should be possible in a week a two as well as 30 minutes after the previous editor completes their work.

Most people seem to think "NPOV" means "no POV", which it doesn't, and we came up with the following easy visualisation of it: Imagine death penalty was universally accepted as an adequate punishment.
Thus, favouring death penalty *is* *the* NPOV of that hypothetical world.

The NPOV portion should be at the top and only consist of all those things that nobody objects to (ie.
In other words, we should strive for NPOV as much as possible whilst not pretending that everything can be made into NPOV.
The reason we should encourage NPOV as much as posssible is because it encourages us to find commonality between our differing views, which is an important step towards understanding our differences.

Someone other than myself wrote this, and since some have expressed a desire to discuss some of these issues without my well-known point of view becoming overly represented, I hereby reinstate the file with two comments by myself, and commit to leaving this file alone hereafter.
Those who wish to read the no-holds-barred version of this, see NPOV as description, not prescription which includes a dialogue between myself and Jimbo Wales.

 Wikinews talk:Accreditation policy - Wikinews
The police and the court system both like to hear from multiple witnesses whenever possible, because it has been demonstrated time and again that relying on a single witness has the potential to place the entire investigation or hearing at the mercy of that single witness' biases and selective memory of the events in question.
The requirement of upholding "NPOV" for lone reporters operating in the field will be problematic to say the least, especially given the shifting definition of "NPOV" which I've never been able to pin anyone down on for a clear definition.
NPOV is a Foundation issue which is non-negotiable.

Under the non-disputed portions of the current NPOV section, it is preferable to use the actual name of the political entities, ie: PRC, ROC, Hong Kong, Macau.
The "Political NPOV" section doesn't seem seem to be even largely about article naming conventions, but about style and usage, which is beyond the scope of of this namespace.
The usage by the Chen Shui-bian administration to refer to the Republic of China synonymously with Taiwan is opposed by Pan-Blue politicians in Taiwan and the PRC government.

 Limitations of Wiki News' Neutral Point of View Policy | Echo Chamber Project   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Wales said that the NPOV policy works best as a means to get a lot of people to collaborate and synthesize news from other primary news sources, but that it would be probably difficult for WikiNews to do much original reporting.
The NPOV philosophy seems to work well for historic topics where there is time for long deliberations over controversial issues, but coming to a quick consensus of neutrality in day-to-day news coverage could potentially water down the news.
If a NPOV philosophy is unwilling to "adjudicate factual disputes," then it only seems to be raising the amount of informational uncertainty -- as Jay Rosen would say.

For "mere Opinion", the "NPOV" approach may seem to be enough, but it isn't.
The actual end user is not interested in a balance of a lot of other people's views or values, it's their own they want reliably expressed in that signal, so the segmenting by faction and tendency seems to be the only way to make that decision.
It also means that there would be "no such thing as NPOV" in the content wiki - the neutrality disputes would arise only WITHIN factions where presumably they could be dealt with in a factionally defined way.

 Wikipedia:Accuracy dispute - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The article should exist, its just that this incorrect definition of "research chemicals" belongs under "designer drugs" and the "research chemicals" page should be repurposed to discuss research chemicals in a way that makes sense to 99% of chemists rather than a small population of internet drug purchasers.
I'm not fond of the term 'research chemical' OR 'designer drug', since one is an optimistic euphemism, and the other a dysphemism popularized by the law enforcement industry, but it seems like 'designer drug' is the best we have for the moment.
Repurposing the page will be an interesting task, since chemists and pharmacologists tend not to refer to the things they research in generic terms like 'research chemical' and I'm honestly not sure what you'd include in that article besides a link to the lists of chemicals.

 Bambooweb: Wikipedia
According to advocates of the NPOV policy, the aim is not to write articles from a single objective point of view, but rather, to fairly present all views on an issue, attributed to their adherents in a neutral way.
However, establishing a consensus on what views should be thus attributed can require much heated discussion and debate, and at any rate the attribution never extends to every single statement within an article.
Thus, some people have claimed that NPOV is more of an ideology than an actual policy.

If fame is not a factor a lot of quotes should be deleted but no matter what criterion is used a NPOV will be very hard to achieve with the current grouping of “for” and “against”.
That there is some discord and ambiguity on the topic of bolding certain quotes should have told you to err on the side of caution when it comes to adding any emphasis.
I've checked, and adding emphasis in the form of bolding certain quotes is not part of the Wiki convention, violates both the NPOV and the Follow The Conventions injunctions, and is not in wide use.
