time to close this out[edit]

1) The Wikiversity hub (beta Wikiversity) was created by the Wikimedia Foundation, for a reason. If the Wikiversity community was not happy with their hub wiki, they could take action to get rid of it. No outside group has any right to step in out of the blue and disrupt Wikiversity by trying to close the Wikiversity hub. If outsiders want to step in, they should first educate themselves, talk to the Wikiversity community and then (if they still do not agree with the Foundation) go to the Board of Trustees and challenge the Board directly for control of Wikiversity.

2) Voting is evil. The are far more ignorant outsiders who do not know what they are doing in this matter than there are members of the Wikiversity community. Based on the comments left in this vote, it is clear to me that the outsiders are not interested in making an informed decision about a Wikiversity matter. This entrenched and disruptive ignorance about Wikiversity invalidates the vote.

Stop this silly drama now, it is disrupting the peace of Wikiversity. If you want to take control of the Wikiversity project, run for membership on the Board. --JWSurf 17:43, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Surely it is time to close this discussion. The oppose votes are about twice the number of support votes. There clearly is no consensus to close Beta Wikiversity. The discussion has been going for quite long enough. Who is going to close it? --Bduke 21:53, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

(+) I support closing this propsal. --Hillgentleman 06:22, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Point of View[edit]

I see this edit [1] by the proposer at the close, as a pushing of his point of view. So I added a comment to make it more balanced. [2] Hillgentleman 07:41, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree that the closure involved POV pushing. The same person who proposed its deletion should not of been the one to close it considering there closure was unbalanced. Thanks for commenting further on it. --darklama 19:59, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
