  • Wikipedia:WikiProject Free Energy - I'm very uncomfortable with the notion of a WikiProject dedicated to flooding Wikipedia with fringe science. Isomorphic 00:11, 8 Dec 2003 (UTC)
    • It just seems that this guy wants to use part of Wikipedia for his own Wikipedia-within-Wikipedia. Delete. - Mark Ryan 05:54, 8 Dec 2003 (UTC)
    • delete - sounds like a magnet for original research (and controversy) -Anthropos 18:37, 8 Dec 2003 (UTC)
    • Delete - it will be a magnet for unencyclopedic fringe science.

    • Don't Delete. This feature could be the seed that grows into one of your most famous contributions to the pool of valuable human knowledge. Sterlingda 08:42, 9 Dec 2003 (UTC)

      • Hi, the Free Energy Wikipedia Control Panel seems a good idea. I've suggested at Wikipedia talk:Free Energy Wikipedia Control Panel that the page be moved to a title which conforms with other WikiProjects, which as far as I can tell is what this is. Angela. 10:02, 6 Dec 2003 (UTC)
        • I did not make this comment in regards to deletion. I just wanted the page out of the main namespace and don't have a strong opinion either way. Not being NPOV isn't a reason to delete though if there is a way in which it could be made NPOV. Angela. 20:01, 9 Dec 2003 (UTC)
      • [comment] Replied at my talk page (probably a lot in common with what Angela just said) Dysprosia 10:50, 6 Dec 2003 (UTC) [Does not imply approval or disapproval]
        • If Sterling can write about various free energy technologies that are well known (something like the hydrogen-water thing is good, there is current interest in this now, so nothing esoteric), and from a neutral point of view with appropriate mention of criticism then I have no qualms, but the contents and progress of this project may need to be closely monitored for appropriateness and not a location for primary research. Dysprosia 10:57, 9 Dec 2003 (UTC)
          • You will see on my site that I provide both point and counter point, including links to skeptic pages even when I myself believe the technology to most likely be legit. In the Pure Energy Systems open sourcing encyclopedia project I have launched, objectivity and solid scientific rigor will be our goal. Remember, as items are submited to Wikipedia, you will have an opportunity on a case by case basis to scrutinize them. I think that scrutiny would be a good thing.
      • I agree with Angela, the Free Energy project is a great idea. I look forward to reading about the topics it suggests. Tarquin 10:26, 6 Dec 2003 (UTC)

    • comment: Here is something I just published today on my FE updates website -- I cite it as a sample of my objective reporting skills on the subject: Genesis World Energy Under Investigation for Fraud - NJ Attorney General's office engaged in full investigation into likely securities fraud. Eyewitnesses say one of the bench-top model used by GWE for proof of concept demos is nothing more than a slight modification of a fuel cell device sold at Hammacher Schlemmer.

    • Delete, unless it is changed to agree with the NPOV policy, and the original research and advocacy elements removed. The Anome 13:04, 10 Dec 2003 (UTC)
    • Delete, same reasons to The Anome. Like it is is not encyclopedic. Muriel Victoria 11:27, 12 Dec 2003 (UTC)
