Mission statement[edit]

This idea was conceived initially by me (Mglovesfun) inspired by a discussion with Dan Polansky. Among other things, it's designed to allow irrelevant material to be removed from WT:CFI. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:18, 20 April 2010 (UTC)


We intend to serve the kind of users who also are capable of making contributions that we retain. - Really? I had no idea that I was "serving" someone :) And especially given the fact that some 0.1% of Wiktionary users are its contributors, this really means that we're rather close-knit self-serving community. --Ivan Štambuk 09:05, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

I think we are quite self-serving, yes. I certainly don't think we have a "client-centered approach". I suppose we should distinguish somewhat between users, contributors and readers. Mglovesfun (talk) 09:10, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
I've re-written this section to be proscriptive. Have I missed any roles out? Conrad.Irwin 10:59, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
Looks great! --Ivan Štambuk 11:41, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
Now all we need to do is make reality conform to these fine words. DCDuring TALK 15:12, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
