Assuming good faith is a core value of this wiki community. It means that we act on the assumption that everyone who makes an edit is doing so to provide relevant, accurate information. No matter the change, we give people the benefit of the doubt and trust they have come to build, not break, WikiIndex.

Realize that everyone makes mistakes. The nature of Wiki renders it nearly impossible to break and makes corrections easy. By assuming good faith and working together we keep in mind that errors are often unintentional.

Because there is a history of all edits made to WikiIndex, edits that constitute vandalism or spam are easily found. By assuming good faith in the face of evidence to the contrary, we assume that those who perpetrate don't understand the rules or social norms of WikiIndex. Assuming good faith allows us to acknowledge an editor's negative impact and persuade them to adopt acceptable standards and practices.
