Wiki Code of Conduct

To foster the best possible experience for all, the WikiFoundry Central community respectfully requests that it's visitors and contributors honor this code of conduct. Failure to follow these rules will result in a deletion of your comments and/or content.

(1) Play nicely with others


  • Respect your peers — Treat others and their contributions with respect and foster considerate dialogue.
  • Do not use offensive language — Inappropriate, crude, or abusive language is not only unacceptable, it’s a lousy way to convince anyone of your point.
  • Remember, there are no stupid questions— Everyone’s input is welcomed and honored. “Flaming” others or demeaning their participation may build your self-esteem, but it won’t help build community.
  • Report inappropriate behavior — Remove and/or report to the Moderators disrespectful or provocative content, but refrain from seeking vigilante justice.

(2) Act in good faith


  • Don’t pilfer material — Don’t publish content to which you have no rights. Copying is bad. Mmm k?
  • It’s about you, but not about YOU — This site exists to support an organic and communal body of information. Shameless self-promotion and hawking of wares are strictly verboten, not to mention pathetic. See our page on Spam for more details.

(3) Promote the community spirit


  • Use the Moderators as a resource — Reach out to the Moderators for guidance or advice on how best to leverage the site. They are there to help.
  • Share the experience — Be an ambassador of the community by enrolling others in the discussion, sponsoring a good debate, and setting a good, collaborative example.

(4) Keep It original


  • Don't copy content from other sites — It's a violation of the WikiFoundry Terms of Use and the owner of the content will find out.
  • To file a copyright infringement takedown request, use the process listed in section 3 of the WikiFoundry Terms of Use.

If your wiki breaks the rules mentioned above, or copies content from another site, your site may be blocked. This means that no one will have access to your wiki, including yourself. If your site is blocked, please don't ask the Moderators to unblock it for you, as they can not do so for you. It generates no results. For a more exhaustive list of legal do’s and dont's, refer to the site’s Terms & Conditions.
