Cobalt Wiki:Standard Wiki Rules
Below are the community guidelines for Cobalt Wiki. Infringing upon any of these rules will result in a warning given on a user's personal talk page. Ignoring a warning or repeatedly breaking these rules may result in a block at the administrator's discretion.
Personal Attacks[edit source]
Users should never personally attack other members of the wiki community on any part of the site. Comments should focus on the content, not the person.
Edit Warring and Reaching Consensus[edit source]
While contributing to the wiki, it is possible that a user may disagree with how the information on a certain page is presented. It is expected that the two users will reach a consensus when they are in disagreement by using a talk page rather than constantly editing and/or reverting changes.
Assume Good Faith[edit source]
If a wiki editor makes a mistake due to human error, the fact that they are new to the community, or any other honest reason, fellow wiki community members must assume good faith. Rather than insulting, berating, or lashing out at the editor, community members should approach situations like these with a helpful and understanding attitude.
