Sorta makes me want to delete the red link from the template (box)? I would love to tell you why but i refer to innocence of experience. Is the deleted page a clue?
Discuss here.

Current purpose[edit]

Meta-Wiki currently serves several distinct roles, which are all closely related although often involve different subsets of users.

  1. Discussion and formulation of the Wikimedia projects, and in particular policy discussion relevant to all projects, such as open content licensing.
    • The central venue for discussion is the Wikimedia Forum.
    • Part of the high-level discussions happened mainly about 2009 were split to Strategy Wiki.
  2. A forum for personal essays about the Wikimedia projects (as these are usually not delivered from a neutral point of view, they should be summarized on neutral issues pages from multiple point of view using formats like TIPAESA or its subset IPA).
    • There's some degree of freedom in determining what is related to Wikimedia projects, which makes Meta also a meatball wiki of sorts, discussing wiki culture and patterns etc. Documentation of MediaWiki is mainly excluded now, see below.
    • More formal research and discussion of it is an expansion/subcase.
  3. A place for interlingual (cross-wiki) and international coordination concerning the Wikimedia projects and the Wikimedia movement in general, including discussion in languages other than English.

Categories should give a representation of Meta-Wiki's content.
