The Wikimedia principles emerged from many debates about wiki ideology. Growing Wikimedia was eventually written to summarize some of the principles elaborated as below:

Neutral point of view[edit]

Neutral point of view--draft
Proposed revision of the NPOV policy
NPOV as description not prescription
Systemic Bias of Wikipedia
Natural point of view
NPOV is an ideal
Consensus editing
Meatball Wiki take on NPOV and Wikipedia
South Slavic NPOV page
If NPOV is science, how do I deal with cases where the US 'science' is at odds with at least 80% of the world?

Core issues: etiquette, consensus, permission, vandals, ethics, morals[edit]
