:Thanks!  I'm still getting the hang of public wikis and put some pretty generic stuff in those [[Foster-Powell]] restaurant pages.  I guess I just don't know how much personal opinion & suggestions can be injected versus "just the facts, ma'am."  I understand [[Wikipedia]] to be pretty strict about just facts, but I couldn't find a policy here about that -- but maybe I just didn't look hard enough.

::It's so early, we don't really have any policies ([[PortlandWiki:Policies]] is our page where we will link to them as they are created). We're sort of allowing our rules to develop organically, as needed... and as for the facts-to-opinion ratio I think consensus amongst the handful of editors here is to be less strict about POV/opinion than Wikipedia and more into writing in an entertaining and informative way. At least that's what I've been trying to do. Whatever you write will probably be appreciated though! -[[User:Kotra|kotra]] ([[User talk:Kotra|talk]]) 01:58, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

Welcome to PortlandWiki, BrianEnigma! I saw your work in the Recent Changes and it looks great! I hope you have fun building the wiki with us... and if you have any questions feel free to either ask me here or drop me a line on my talk page. -kotra (talk) 21:01, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! I'm still getting the hang of public wikis and put some pretty generic stuff in those Foster-Powell restaurant pages. I guess I just don't know how much personal opinion & suggestions can be injected versus "just the facts, ma'am." I understand Wikipedia to be pretty strict about just facts, but I couldn't find a policy here about that -- but maybe I just didn't look hard enough. BrianEnigma (talk) 21:10, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
It's so early, we don't really have any policies (PortlandWiki:Policies is our page where we will link to them as they are created). We're sort of allowing our rules to develop organically, as needed... and as for the facts-to-opinion ratio I think consensus amongst the handful of editors here is to be less strict about POV/opinion than Wikipedia and more into writing in an entertaining and informative way. At least that's what I've been trying to do. Whatever you write will probably be appreciated though! -kotra (talk) 01:58, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
