WikiIndex:Policies and Guidelines

WikiIndex - wikis, wiki people, wiki software, and wiki ideas
Jump to: navigation, search

WikiIndex is in the process of developing a set of explicit guidelines. Until then, our admin team will monitor the wiki and use their common sense to resolve issues. Where there is a dispute, it will be resolved between the active admins on the site. (Or alternatively a vote amongst the active users.)

Right now, we only have a couple of rules, which have arisen from direct experience:

Spam control policy[edit]

Actual commercial spam will be mercilessly deleted. Irrelevant content should be instead marked for deletion, to allow a review first. One man's 'irrelevant' can be another's 'interesting'.

Edit wars are right out[edit]

If you find yourself repeatedly restoring content somebody else keeps deleting (or vice versa), stop – and seek arbitration.

Blocking and banning policy[edit]

Needs expanding

For a few more simple guidelines, see "WikiIndex:Editing etiquette" or "WikiIndex:Guidelines". For other guidelines, see "Category:Guidelines".

A discussion of possible policies follows on this articles talk page. See also "WikiIndex talk:Policies and Guidelines". For a more personal viewpoint, try "User:Lumenos/WikiIndex (unwritten) policies".

Personal article policy[edit]

Wiki people articles should be a biography of the person's wiki experience only, and as such personal info (i.e., birthdays, phone numbers, real names, etc.) should be excluded.
