(the transhumanist wiki is generally of poor quality, and this page is no exception. All the links were copied anyway.) --User:Vladimir Nesov

I know. It's kinda sad that the Transhumanist Wiki's page on Transhumanism isn't good enough to be worth linking to. But complaining about that here isn't going to help at all. I was hoping that by linking to it from here, someone might follow the link and improve the page, but I guess it was silly of me to hope for that. --PeerInfinity 19:22, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
That's the thing with broken windows: it may be very important to keep a wiki small at the beginning to maintain high enough quality, so that the contributors get a sense that they are not throwing their work out the window, even if at the more mature stage all the topics that could otherwise start as scrappy stubs are in fact written up. With the transhumanist wiki, I suggest creating a new clean room (putting away the current wiki as "archive" or "draft") and carefully starting over in it (but you need editors that are willing and able to police for quality, and contributors not put off by that activity). --Vladimir Nesov 10:27, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
