Welcome to the village pump. This set of pages is used to discuss the technical issues, policies, and operations of Wikipedia, and is divided into six village pump sections. Please use the table below to find the most appropriate section to post in, or post in the miscellaneous section. You can view all village pump sections at once here. The village pump is not a place to make lasting comments as inactive discussions are archived after seven days, and then permanently removed after a further seven days.
