Relevance to wikimania

WereSpielChequers... Is Wiki not interested in authentic research that brings new knowledge? This is knowledge about Business and Society. I would add that Wiki is not only about copying people's content and paste it in your home page. It is a place where authentic researcher can bring their collaboration for free. user:Cenotechnology

Dear Sadrac CENOPHAT, our friend wanted to know the precise relevance of this abstract to Wikimania 2012. As I see, you've probably done great amount study of the "Corporate Social Responsibility" and this could be utilized to be included in the following Wikipedia article of the English Wikipedia:

However, if you decide to present this at the Wikimania, I suggest you "Wikimaniaize" you presentation (including the abstract) by focusing on how the following aspects are presented on the Wikipedia such as:

  • Corporate Ethics
  • Corporates and Green Marketing
  • Corporate Charities
  • Equal Opportunities Employment
  • Any other related aspect or Corporate Social Responsibility as whole

This is just my suggest to ensure your presentation is line with other Wikimania presentations. Best of luck, Hindustanilanguage (talk) 14:19, 17 March 2012 (UTC).Reply

  • Hi Cenotechnology, I'm not sure about your "not only about copying people's content and paste it in your home page" comment. Remember we have pretty effective mechanisms to deal with people who copy and paste stuff into Wikipedia. As for people adding their own original research, this is allowed in projects such as Wikiversity, though not of course Wikipedia. What I'm not clear about is the relevance of your presentation to the Wikimedia movement. A case study of the use of Wikiversity for a research project might be interesting, as would be a social responsibility critque of the Wikimedia movement. But to answer your original question, no Wikimania is not simply a venue for new knowledge. Wikimania is the annual conference for the Wikimedia movement, presentations would be expected to be relevant to the movement, ideally to the stated themes of this conference. Social responsibility has a lot of relevance to the movement, areas such how we cater for minority languages; what we do with controversial content; how we handle problem editors; How we treat people who come to regret image releases they made; the carbon footprint of the operation. etc etc. But as Hindustanilanguage said, I'd suggest making it clearer in your submission what the relevance is to the Wikimedia movement.
