Changes in policy describing admins and their privileges
A user made a change to a Wikinews policy page WN:INTRO. I think this is an important matter and should be discussed by the community.
I also highly, highly recommend that it wait until after the global pandemic when everyone's nerves aren't so fried.
Change (since reverted):  Discussion: [https://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Wikinews_talk:Introduction#Non-hierarchical}
- That is not a policy page. It does explain some things that involve policies. The change in question doesn't alter any of the meaning that was previously in place; it just adds some things that are also true.
No doubt we should all be careful not to let whatever tensions we feel in our lives overflow onto the project. I don't think that needs to be a problem. (Btw, the global pandemic may continue for the next two years or so.) --Pi zero (talk) 16:28, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
