SmashWiki:You are valuable/rewrite

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

SmashWiki is a community-based encyclopedia, so do not let the fact that some users are administrators discourage you from making proposals to articles and policies. If you are a registered user or even an IP, your input is welcome and you will be treated with respect. As part of SmashWiki, you are automatically part of the community, and as part of the community, you have the ability to carry weight in many issues that rely on community consensus. Administrators are not kings, so do not be afraid to input your opinions on matters simply because a higher-"ranked" user disagrees with it. It is inappropriate to depreciate yourself by making comments like "But User:Example is a pro smasher, so don't mind my opinion as much as his," or "User:AverageJoe is an admin, so his opinion must be more valuable than mine."

What this guideline means[edit]

  • Your opinion on matters is always considered, no matter how much experience you have here.
  • You are as free to edit, suggest changes, and propose policies as anyone else.
  • You are not "useless" or "unqualified" to make edits.
  • Your edits, unless they are obviously false, will not be treated with any less credibility than other users.
  • You will be treated with respect regardless of your level of experience.

What this guideline does not mean[edit]

  • In disputes, you will be judged by the quality of your arguments, rather than your experience. As such, do not expect to automatically carry as much weight as other users.
  • While you will always be welcome as a valuable contributor, you are expected to follow our Policies and guidelines, and repeated failure to do so may result in a block.
