==About==
==Mission==
 
 
Issuepedia is the encyclopedia of issues, analysis, thought, and opinion. As with [[wikipedia:Wikipedia|Wikipedia]], anyone can edit; unlike Wikipedia, we encourage opinions and rants as well as carefully considered analysis and purely factual writing.
 
Issuepedia is the encyclopedia of issues, analysis, thought, and opinion. As with [[wikipedia:Wikipedia|Wikipedia]], anyone can edit; unlike Wikipedia, we encourage opinions and rants as well as carefully considered analysis and purely factual writing.
  
Issuepedia's mission is to aid in the process of making decisions, starting with larger issues (which do not need to be compartmentalized) and gradually developing techniques for working out more immediate disputes.
+
* [[Issuepedia:Mission|Mission]]: what we're trying to do
 
+
* [[Issuepedia:Role|Role]]: how Issuepedia is different from all those other wikis, and how it fits in
Issuepedia's immediate functions are:
+
===Projects===
* to place protective yet [[transparency|transparent]] shields of [[verifiability]] and [[accountability]] (among other tools) around the basic [[truth]]s upon which our [[civilization]] is built
+
Projects that originated or currently operate within Issuepedia:
* to document (and to be a central library for):
+
* [[InstaGov]]
** significant [[issue]]s
+
* [[Issuepedia:Structured Debate]]
** [[opinion]]s held on those issues, along with any available reasoning or background necessary to understand those opinions
+
* [[Issuepedia:Link Filing]]
** [[Issuepedia:Analytical toolkit|analytical tools]] available for attempting to reach a reasonable decision on such issues
 
* to provide a forum for further discussion
 
* to provide a central collection point for information about other decision-making tools
 
* [[Issuepedia:Reclaiming words|Reclaiming words]] which have been misappropriated
 
* '''Calling out praise or condemnation''', as appropriate, whenever a person or group does anything praiseworthy or contemptuous:
 
** [[Issuepedia:Wacky Award|The Issuepedia Wacky Award]]
 
** [[Issuepedia:Member of Civilization Award|The Issuepedia Member of Civilization Award]]
 
*** '''possible nominees''': [[Keith Olbermann]], [[Chris Dodd]], [[Ron Paul]], [[Richard Dawkins]], [[Larry Lessig]], [[Cory Doctorow]]...
 
* [[Issuepedia:Challenge|Challenging]] readers to express viewpoints opposing those which currently predominate on Issuepedia (or anywhere)
 
* Providing an outlet for [[Issuepedia:Rampant Paranoia|Rampant Paranoia]], so we can get those nagging doubts out of our heads and (hopefully) start proving them wrong
 
Issupedia's goals include:
 
* Being part of an interlocking network of [[Issuepedia:Related Projects|Related Projects]]
 
* Saying that which can't be said [http://www.paulgraham.com/say.html], i.e. riding roughshod over [[Issuepedia:taboo truths|taboo truths]]
 
* [[Issuepedia:Scripture|Documenting understanding of scriptural works]], since so many people are influenced by them, both to uncover inconsistencies and emphasize any valuable ideas or truths they may contain
 
===Issue Encyclopedia===
 
Being a [[wiki]], Issuepedia allows anyone to edit or create any article; Issuepedia's goal is to guide this process towards a comprehensive encyclopedia of issues and opinions, in much the same way that [[wikipedia:Main Page|Wikipedia]] (which uses [[wikipedia:MediaWiki|the same wiki software]]) has become a valuable comprehensive reference work for [[wikipedia:Fact|factual]] information purely through volunteer efforts.
 
 
 
In traditional formats (such as face-to-face discussion or written editorializing), any argument has always faced a compromise between ''thoroughly informing'' and ''sticking to the point''. There is also a similar conflict between the goals of ''discovering the truth'' and ''making a convincing argument''.
 
 
 
By providing a location where points of argument (and agreement) on any given issue can be documented and referenced, Issuepedia hopes to eliminate much of the endless circular arguing and side-tracking which has always plagued such discussions. The relatively new (c.1990) technique of embedding [[wikipedia:Hyperlink|hyperlinks]] within a discussion or argument makes it easier to provide complete source materials and thorough explanations without getting into a side-track and possibly losing the thread of the main thought, while [[wiki]] technology makes it possible for casual, non-technical users to participate in this process.
 
 
 
See [[Issuepedia:Technology|Issuepedia Technology]] for further discussion of Issuepedia's technological work, or [[Issuepedia:Dispute Resolution Technology|Dispute Resolution Technology]] for technology specific to unraveling disputes.
 
===Documentation of Opinion===
 
Although Issuepedia ultimately aims to back up all opinions with reasoning, the fact that someone ''holds'' an opinion may be sufficient grounds for including that opinion, especially if the opinion is widely held or is held by a group who makes efforts to have their opinions known. Documenting such opinions makes it possible to begin the process of determining who agrees with that opinion, what arguments exist to support or weaken it, and ultimately whether or not it should be taken seriously.
 
 
 
Issuepedia also has a policy of allowing [[Issuepedia:reasonably sound opinion|reasonably sound opinion]] to stand without qualification, based on the idea that the truth will gradually emerge by a successive-approximation process called [[Issuepedia:Reinforcement by Contradiction|Reinforcement by Contradiction]].
 
 
 
==How is Issuepedia Different?==
 
Or, ''how Issuepedia fits in with other similar projects''
 
 
 
* '''Issuepedia''' draws upon the more complete and (more or less) unbiased information in [[Wikipedia:Main Page|Wikipedia]], and possibly anecdotal and practical information in [[htyp:HTYP:About|HTYP]]. Issupedia's job is to extract the "bones" of the issue from the surrounding "matrix" of related facts, opinions, and arguments in Wikipedia and elsewhere.
 
* '''Wikipedia''', while generally not regarded as ''authoritative'', can be thought of as reasonably thorough and even definitive; if anyone disagrees with its statements on any given subject, there will almost certainly be discussion to that effect on the "talk" page. No significant stone will be left unturned, and many insignificant ones will be checked as well. Wikipedia may not have all the facts, or even have them all correct (though it generally does a pretty good job), but it can at least be a guide to what pieces of information there are which might need verifying and where one might find more definitive information. Its only flaw, for our purposes, is ''excess'': there is much information which, though clearly on-topic, is not relevant to any ''issues'' under discussion.
 
* '''[http://campaigns.wikia.com/wiki/Campaigns_Wikia Campaigns Wikia]''' is geared towards information about particular political candidates. As such, it will have a lot of useful information upon which Issuepedia can draw. It differs from Issuepedia, however, in that the latter is geared towards general discussion of issues; discussion of current candidates is a part of this, but not the whole picture.
 
* '''[[Issuepedia:Wikicitizens|Wikicitizens]]''' (currently in discussion/planning phase) will allow groups of people to coagulate around points of view on which they can agree, and then eventually to engage in inter-group negotiations to create voter blocs on particular issues (etc.)
 
 
==Administration==

About

Issuepedia is the encyclopedia of issues, analysis, thought, and opinion. As with Wikipedia, anyone can edit; unlike Wikipedia, we encourage opinions and rants as well as carefully considered analysis and purely factual writing.

  • Mission: what we're trying to do
  • Role: how Issuepedia is different from all those other wikis, and how it fits in

Projects

Administration

As of this writing, Issuepedia is solely administered and mostly written by Woozle, who invites others to participate. To help support Issuepedia, see Issuepedia:site support.

And yes, I need to do some banners and buttons; nobody's been asking for them, though, so it hasn't been a priority.
