About

Issuepedia is on a deep-dive mission into the facts behind public discourse, and the deceptions that power players use to engineer public sentiment counter to those facts.

We believe that claims of "objectivity" are often a way of dodging responsibility for confronting the powerful. We will take sides, but only because the evidence supports the side we take – and we won't unilaterally endorse any side's positions just because overall we like that side better. In that sense, we will try to be objective about the evidence, and (more importantly) to follow best practices for epistemic inquiry. If any hand that feeds us ever abuses others, we fully intend to bite it.

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

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.

The section named "User Roles" has been archived in case it becomes useful later.

The Issuepedia bug tracker is here.
