Essay on editing Wikipedia
This is an essay.
It contains the advice or opinions of one or more Wikipedia contributors. This page is not an encyclopedia article, nor is it one of Wikipedia's policies or guidelines, as it has not been thoroughly vetted by the community. Some essays represent widespread norms; others only represent minority viewpoints.
Wikipedia should have methods of positive feedback to allow both incentives for improvement and polite and civil interactions. Wikipedia should help people more than it hurts them (Wikipedia:Avoiding harm).
Wikipedia should have verifiable civility, and it should have measures to avoid turnover.
- Wikipedia:Mostly negative
- Wikipedia:Saying something doesn't make it so
