I think you're setting up a straw man here. I haven't seen anyone on
this list suggest any such thing, and I don't see that any of the
existing pages are intentionally written in this way. It would be good
to have consistent styles for such pages, but there's no need to set it
up in such a confrontational way.

As I said "other voices" I never said they resided on this list ( I dont keep tap who's on this list or any other list for that matter ) however you should recall atleast one such debate when we rewrote/redesigned the QA frontpage on the wiki.. I feel we definitively needs some wiki rules and regulations. When I started to write wiki pages I was pointed out that I should write those pages on my name space followed by pointing other members of the community to that page and if the community was happy with the content/layout it would be move to the front if not I should A) rewrite the page according to suggestion and resubmit or B) those that did not agree with the content layout of that page should draft what ever they think it should look like and submit that. if I would change an already published wiki page I should comment in the page it self why I made those changes . Now I had barely finished wikifying for example Sysrq ( Now https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/Sysrq ) and was waiting for feed back from the community ( for example if it was simple/clear enough ) when it got yanked out of my personal space and dump where it resides now ( which probably not where the wiki admins want it to reside ). Either we create pages at will submit them when accepted they get move to the front then if a rewriting ( other than minor changes such as typo fixing etc ) occurs the individual that wants to rewrite the current page does so on his own name space and submits his changes or everybody hack everything everywhere on the wiki and constantly play wiki rewriting ping pong game of how their perception on how things should look/be written. One half says user your own namespace and submit your suggestion comment when changing.the other halfs says wanna change something on the wiki change it. I think the community needs to agree on which way it should be.


Good coders make crappy documents. If and when they find the time to write them they usually tend to be to technical/development oriented even tho the indented audience is the end user.
