Metakgp:Policies and guidelines

From Metakgp Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Metakgp wiki policies and guidelines are developed by the community to describe best practices, clarify principles, resolve conflicts, and otherwise further our goal of creating a community wiki for IIT KGP. There is no need to read any policy or guideline pages to start editing.

These guidelines are not hard and fast rules, and constantly evolve. They do however reflect consensus in the community. They should be applied using common sense. Many of our policies are simplified and adapted from Wikipedia.

Neutrality[edit source]

We strive for articles that document and explain the major points of view. We avoid advocacy and we characterize information and issues rather than debate them. In some areas there may be just one well-recognized point of view; in others, we describe multiple points of view, presenting each accurately and in context rather than as "the truth" or "the best view". All articles must strive for verifiable accuracy, citing reliable, authoritative sources, especially when the topic is controversial or is on living persons. Personal opinions belong only on the Talk page.
