Policies[edit source]

Policy Summary
Assume Good Faith Unless there is conclusive evidence to the contrary, always assume that an editor's actions were an attempt to improve the wiki.
Don't Delete Discussions Don't delete previous discussions.
Don't Edit Userpages Under normal circumstances, don't edit someone else's userpage.
Don't Feed the Trolls Do not antagonise trolls under any circumstances.
Consensus Consensus is the wiki's fundamental model for decision-making. It is reached by a group as a whole; it seeks the consent, not necessarily the agreement, of the relevant parties.
Status and opinion-weight An editor's status, popularity, or in-game experience does not affect the validity of their opinions or anything they may say.
User Treatment Policy Be nice and don't cause unnecessary strife.
Gaming the System Use common sense. Don't interpret policies and editors word-for-word.
Personal Templates Customized templates created by users should be in the userspace.
Signatures
