A Simple English User's point of view and idea of neutral is not the same as that of a Simple English Contributor.

 Thinking of Chinese Wikipedia Kevin Wen's Web
Obviously, at this point, contributors (even visitors) were missing one of most important principle in wikipedia: Reflect neutral point of view.
The neutral point of view is intended to avoid editing wars between contributors competing to impose their interpretation of various subjects on other readers.
After some of interviews with active contributors in Chinese wikipedia, the article point out why wikipedia was not blocked in China at that time, and predicted potential risks of blocking by Chinese censors.

The "no original research" policy states that such material cannot be properly attributed under neutral point of view, and that editors' own novel ideas or perspectives are not to be introduced.
Editions are not bound to the content of other language editions, and are only held to global policies such as "neutral point of view".
The policy states that views should be given weight equal to their standing.

 Neutral Point Of View
My motivation for this is so that over time the corpus acquires all points of view, instead of being relentlessly driven towards whatever perspective was "appropriate" during the refactoring.
Following are some thoughts and definitions of npov arising from one editor's quick browse of wikipedia.
Not that we should make any effort to adopt their npov approach here, but that this page and its links lets us see the insights and reflections of another wiki community.

 Wikipedia talk:Neutral point of view : AvoidBiasDebate
For the proscription of overtly partisan content is itself a violation of neutrality.
Maybe is it time to add a little something about media sources alleged neutrality, and how non-english media sources and non-english pages referenced by google, but not understandable to english-speaking people, may be used for articles as source, or as back-up.
A thorough and thoughtful discussion may be found at NPOV.

 ASCII by Jason Scott: The Great Failure of Wikipedia
I think one start is mostly unlimited viewing access for most general content while having a hierarchy of users which limit modification of content or at the very least have a moderated approval process of content.
If maintainers suck, they fork, but more often than not, the maintainers are told of their bugs, of feature requests, and so on, and implement them, sometimes slowly and sometimes not.
Obviously the NPOV doesn't effectively attend to "people [who] make little empires, have their agendas, push through ideas and themes they want, and disregard and delete things they do not" or to vandals.

 Wikipedia talk:Neutral point of view : AvoidBiasDebate
New people (and maybe the old ones) might begin to view biased claims made in a given article as the "right" of the person who added them, and be less likely to de-bias the claims (after all, if there's no community animus against bias then what justification is there to render the article unbiased?).
The result of this process is that articles will gradually come to represent a consensus view, one that is mostly satisfactory to most people.
The expressed consensus rule also serves as a reference point in case someone comes along and gets mad about us editing out their bias.

See neutral point of view page for further explanation, and for a very lengthy discussion.
The aim is not to write articles from a single objective point of view--this is a common misunderstanding of the policy--but rather, to fairly and sympathetically present all views on an issue.
Second, there are a number of important naming conventions with which participants should familiarize themselves.

 Wikipedia:Raccomandazioni e linee guida - Wikipedia
Gli articoli devono essere scritti partendo da un punto di vista neutrale, che rappresenti le diverse opinioni su un argomento in maniera equa e comprensiva.

 Wired News: Wikipedia Creators Move Into News
However, Halavais believes Wikinews' emphasis on neutrality places it a step apart from the Independent Media Center, which typically has a left-wing viewpoint, and OhmyNews, which allows authors to editorialize.
Note: You are reading this message instead of message board comments either because you have javascript turned off, are running software that prevents you from viewing 3rd party javascript files (ours are served from Akamai for performance reasons), or because you do not have a supported browser.
Alex Halavais, graduate director for the informatics school at the University at Buffalo, said in an e-mail interview that Wikinews has much in common with two other efforts at citizen journalism, Indymedia.org and South Korea's OhmyNews.

 Wikipedia:Neutral point of view - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A good way to help building a neutral point of view is to find a reputable source for the piece of information you want to add to wikipedia, and then cite that source.
To write from a neutral point of view, one presents controversial views without asserting them; to do that, it generally suffices to present competing views in a way that is more or less acceptable to their adherents, and also to attribute the views to their adherents.
We said that the neutral point of view is not, contrary to the seeming implication of the phrase, some actual point of view that is "neutral" or "intermediate" among the different positions.

 Wikipedia talk: Neutral point of view - Open Encyclopedia
How hypocritical and manipulative and misleading it is to enforce a nonneutral point of view upon others all the while insisting and proclaiming that it is neutral.
Orthodoxy is often assumed to be neutral because people take it for granted and fail to realize orthodoxy and the conventional view is not neutral, because people fail to notice the subjectivity of conventions.
Any text exhibiting a point of view is POV, without exception, although you could certainly contend whether a piece of text is POV or not.

In a neutral representation, the differing points of view are presented as such, not as facts.
An NPOV (neutral, unbiased) article is an article that has been written without taking a stand on the issue in hand.
As for your last question — you can’t expect such articles to be neutral.

What people believe is a matter of their perception of fact, and we can present that quite easily from the neutral point of view." The neutral point of view policy states that one should write articles without bias, representing all views fairly.
Of course, total agreement is not possible; there are ideologues in the world who will not concede to any presentation other than a forceful statement of their own point of view.
User requests are passed to a front end layer of six [[Squid cacheSquid]] servers; requests that cannot be served from the Squid cache are sent to two load-balancing servers running the [[perlbal]] software, which then pass the request to one of the Apache servers for page-rendering from the database.

However, the aim is not to write articles from a single objective point of view — this is a common misunderstanding of the policy — but rather, to fairly present all views on an issue, attributed to their adherents in a neutral way.
The presence of articles written from an exclusively U.S. point of view is largely a reflection of the fact that there are many Americans working on the project, which in turn is merely a reflection of the fact that so many Americans are online.
Of course, 100% agreement is not possible; there are ideologues in the world who will not concede to any presentation other than a forceful statement of their own point of view.

There is also a link to Wikinews, a news source which combines other news sources to produce single articles from a neutral point of view.
It is of course possible for someone to come along and write that Will Ferrell is in fact the inventor of Parcheesi I will address this point later in the article.
One thing is that it is always nice to see something featured that I am actively interested in - such as when they featured the character of Link from "The Legend of Zelda" series of games that have been available for almost every game system made by Nintendo.

 Policy violations (was [WikiEN-l] Re: Violation of blocking policy by user "40277")
Articles should be written from a neutral point of view, representing differing views on a subject fairly and sympathetically." Texture and Oberiko were not fair or sympathetic toward my view, and enforced their own POV my removing my edit that had reduced the POV-ness (as others besides me have pointed out).
If the justification is presented in the Talk page, it's sufficient to write "See talk" in the edit summary box." ----- All of these were violated by Texture, Oberiko, and Jiang when they deleted my addition.

 Neutral point of view--draft - Meta
In particular, the policy does not say that there is even is such a thing as objectivity, a "view from nowhere" (in Thomas Nagel's phrase)--such that articles written from that point of view are consequently objectively true.
THe very existence of the WIkipedia seems to be based on the very valid assumptions that anybody can be an expert on something, and that you don't have to be a trained scholar to be an expert.
The neutrality policy is used sometimes as an excuse to delete texts that are perceived as biased.

Well what we talk about is neutral point of view meaning it’s about cooperating with other people and that’s a really, really important point of how we do things.
And it’s a group of around a thousand, two thousand people who are very, very tightly integrated with each other and they’re in constant communication and take a lot of care and love for how the content is created.
Thousands and thousands of individual users each adding a little bit of content that add to a coherent body of work.

The neutral point of view is intended to avoid editing wars between contributors competing to impose their interpretation of various subjects on other readers.
This could be because officials aren't yet aware of the project, or because the editors take great pain to keep the entries neutral in presentation.
I visited China in 1997, a time when many local officials were hungry to get their communities hooked onto the Internet.

 Wikipedia's first press release--draft for comment - Meta
From the beginning, Wales and Sanger believed that it was absolutely necessary that all participants be committed to what they call "neutral point of view": rather than taking stands on issues of controversy, participants work together to prepare descriptions of the controversy that are fair to all points of view.
As you can see, the press release went through some more significant development after being posted here, but we tried to use as many of your suggestions as we could.
The following is a draft of a press release that we're working on.

With edits being made 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it is impossible to predict where the project will be one year from now.
But most new authors join the project after stumbling upon an article in a search engine, and suddenly noticing that it is editable.

 Talk:Reciprocal System of Theory/Archive 5 - TheBestLinks.com - Communism, Cold fusion, LMS, Neutral point of view, ...
Let me submit that the reason no one does is that the allegations are coming from a scientific merit point of view, not a intellectual prose point of view, which is the obvious objective of the policy.
None of those criteria say that we can't have an article because a theory is considered to be pseudoscience by the mainstream scientific community and I support the inclusion of most of the existing "fringe" articles such as cold fusion.
All existing physical theory is based on the assumption that the universe in which we live is a universe of matter, one in which the fundamental entities are "elementary units" of matter existing in a framework provided by space and time.
