Slides here

Let's say, 4 minutes, 20 seconds per slide

  1. Consensus and voting (title slide)
  2. About me - civil engineer, Wikimedian, attends Wikimanias
  3. On-wiki: deletion discussions
  4. Problem: Delete or not delete
  5. "Consensus is not voting"
  6. But full consensus is almost never possible
  7. ...and when you make mistakes, you get taken to DRV
  8. So after almost 10 years of being admin, here's the model I've boiled down to...
  9. 1/3 - 1/2 - 2/3
  10. "Weighted voting"
  11. Complications: What's the appropriate weighting? (Canvassing? Strength of argument? Well-respected editors in a particular topic should be given more weight?) Discussions with multiple outcomes?
  12. But for now, this is an appropriate model
