Association of Inclusionist Wikipedians
— Check out the WikiProject Inclusion page! —
The motto of the Association of Inclusionist Wikipedians is Conservata veritate, which translates to, "with truth preserved." This motto reflects a desire to change Wikipedia only when no knowledge would be lost as a result.
There is now a place where inclusionist Wikipedians can voice their opinions and further our agenda of building the world's largest and most complete professional encyclopedia.
This association is established and based on the idea that Wikipedia is not paper: Wikipedia is not a paper encyclopedia, and thus has few size limits. Because Wikipedia is not on paper, it can include organized and structured links, can be more timely, etc. It also means that the style and length of writing appropriate for paper is not necessarily appropriate here.
Membership is open to everyone. To discuss inclusionism, please do so freely on the talk page.
To join this association simply copy and paste:

- To continuously improve Wikipedia and make it the most comprehensive source of reliable encyclopedic information available on the planet.
- Support Wikipedia's premise to be comprised of the sum of all human knowledge, freely accessible to all humans, written with as much NPOV as possible.
- Never use personal attacks, it's topics we discuss here, not individual users! When an article is deleted/merged or threatened with deletion/merging, it can cause the creator to call the one who deleted it names. But we as an association shall only discuss over issues, and not attacking people and calling them names.
