MarioWiki:Don't shoot your foot off

From the Super Mario Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There sure are a lot of policy pages around the wiki, aren't there? But here's the thing: we don't actually go through and list every last little thing you can and can't do. Some things, we hope, you'll know not to do even without us telling you not to do it. So here's one more official memo to keep in mind as you go about your business: just because we don't explicitly say you can't do something doesn't mean you can do it. So if someone (especially an admin) comes up to you and tells you (perhaps even officially, with a Warning or Reminder) to stop doing something that most people would agree is unreasonable, "but there's no rule against it" is not actually the best response. If your conduct has been called into question, there's probably a good reason for it, so take the advice to heart instead of blowing them off and being flippant about the whole thing. Really, just, try to be reasonable, okay?
