Policies and guidelines have been developed on Avatar Wiki to further our goal of creating a freely editable Avatar database.
Policies have community consensus and apply to all editors. Avatar Wiki strives to create a welcoming and fun environment for those who are civil to and assume good faith in others, seek consensus in discussions, and work towards the goal of creating an increasingly comprehensive database about everything in the Avatar universe.
Policies need to be approached with common sense; adhere to the spirit rather than the letter of the rules, and be prepared to ignore the rules on the rare occasions when they conflict with the goal of improving the wiki.
What are our policies?[edit source]
Some of the pages detailing more important policies on Avatar Wiki are listed here, but the full list of policy pages is available at Category:Policy.
Where do our policies come from?[edit source]
Generally, Avatar Wiki policies come from one of three sources
- From a standard or good practice that has been followed subconsciously for some time because it is common sense.
- From a deliberate proposal by a user or a group of users.
- From other great wikis that use these policies.
