Planned closing of Wikimedia Strategy

Fragment of a discussion from Village pump/en

Actually, my bet is that there will be another type of strategic planning process, and a good deal of the data here would be quite useful for that.

By all means do keep the data and the discussion history. It is and will continue to be a valuable resource.

But it has much less value as a venue for ongoing activity. Recall that this wiki was created for the express purpose of garnering broad community participation. It succeeded very well at that. Now that the plan is in place, it has become a backwater that no longer serves that purpose.

When I say closing wiki, I never say to delete all content.

Is the reason for closing Strategy is because its not being utilized? I'm wondering what benefit we get from closing Strategy? I believe that Strategy could be used at some future point, and we could re-open it. Just wondering what the reasoning is here. Thanks. - Hydroxonium (TCV) 19:18, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Why closing the strategic planning of all Wikies? Writing down and translating of all knowledge of human beeings must go on. In future know-how must be free to all countries in all languages of the world. So, don't close it.
