- 行為: standards for behavior on Wikipedia to make it a pleasant experience for everyone.
- 內容同風格: which topics are welcome on Wikipedia and give quality and naming standards.
- 刪嘢: the fraught area of deleting articles that are considered undesirable.
- 執行: what action authorised users can take to enforce other policies.
- 法律同版權: law-based rules about what material may be used here, and remedies for misuse.
- Programs that update pages automatically in a useful and harmless way may be welcome, if their owners seek approval first and go to great lengths to stop them from running amok or being a drain on resources.
- Being rude, insensitive or petty makes people upset and stops Wikipedia from working well. Try to discourage others from being uncivil, and be careful to avoid offending people unintentionally. Mediation is available if needed.
- Improve pages wherever you can, and don't worry about leaving them imperfect. Avoid deleting information wherever possible.
- Every policy, guideline or any other rule may be ignored if it hinders improving Wikipedia.
- Use dispute resolution rather than legal threats, for everyone's sake. We respond quickly to complaints of defamation or copyright infringement. If you do take legal action, please refrain from editing until it is resolved.
- 唔好攻擊人：唔好喺維基百科任何地方作人身攻擊。Comment on content, not on the contributor. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Nobody likes abuse.
- Sock puppetry
- 唔好用幾個戶口去 to create the illusion of greater support for an issue, to mislead others, or to circumvent a block; 亦唔好叫你啲朋友去創幾個戶口to support you or anyone.
- 打回頭三次：唔好回退任何單一頁in whole or in part 多過三次(喺二十四小時內) (Or else an administrator may block your account).
- 選擇一個neutral啲嘅帳號名係會you'll be happy with. 你亦可以成日改你個帳號名如果你穩管理員,但係你唔可以刪除渠。
- Vandalism is any addition, deletion, or change to content made in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of the encyclopedia. It is, and needs to be, removed from the encyclopedia.
- Wikipedia would not exist without the online community that has come together to build it. However, Wikipedia is first and foremost an online encyclopedia. Please avoid the temptation to use Wikipedia for other purposes.
- Articles about living persons, which require a degree of sensitivity, must adhere strictly to Wikipedia's content policies. Be very firm about high-quality references, particularly about details of personal lives. Unsourced or poorly sourced negative material about living persons should be removed immediately from both the article and the talk page.
- Generally, article naming should give priority to what the majority of English speakers worldwide would most easily recognize, with a reasonable minimum of ambiguity, while at the same time making linking to those articles easy and second nature.
- Articles, including reader-facing templates, categories and portals, should be written from a Neutral Point of View.
- Neutral point of view FAQ
- This gives an objection-rebuttal style explanation of NPOV, and was recently split off from the main page (listed above this).
- Articles may not contain any unpublished theories, data, statements, concepts, arguments, or ideas; or any new interpretation, analysis, or synthesis of published data, statements, concepts, arguments, or ideas that, in the words of Wikipedia's co-founder Jimbo Wales, would amount to a "novel narrative or historical interpretation."
- 求證得倒：我哋唔可以check the accuracy of claims, but we can check是否the claims have been 公開 by a reputable publication. Articles should therefore cite sources whenever possible. Any unsourced material may be challenged and removed.
- Every day thousands of Wikipedia articles are edited, and every day millions of people search and read Wikipedia articles. Wikipedia is first and foremost an online encyclopedia. Please avoid the temptation to use Wikipedia for other purposes.
- An article should begin with a good definition or a clear description of the topic. Articles that are just dictionary entries belong at Wiktionary.
- Category deletion policy
- Deleting categories follows roughly the same process as articles, except that it's on a different page. Categories that don't conform to naming conventions can be "speedily renamed".
- Criteria for speedy deletion
- Articles, images, categories etc. may be "speedily deleted" if they clearly fall within certain categories, which generally boil down to pages lacking content, or disruptive pages. Anything potentially controversial should go through the deletion process instead.
- Deletion policy
- Deleting articles requires an administrator and generally follows a consensus-forming process. Most potentially controversial articles require a three-step process and a waiting period of a week.
- Office actions
- The Wikimedia Foundation office reserves the right to speedily delete an article temporarily in cases of exceptional controversy.
- Proposed deletion
- As a shortcut around AfD for uncontroversial deletions, an article can be proposed for deletion, though once only. If no one contests the proposal within five days, the article may be deleted by an administrator.
- Undeletion policy
- Deleted articles can be undeleted by any administrator. If this is controversial (or if a non-admin wishes something undeleted) this is discussed at Deletion review. Images deleted after June 2006 can also be undeleted.
- Arbitration Committee
- The Arbitration Committee exists to impose binding solutions to Wikipedia disputes. It is a last resort to be turned to when all else has failed.
- Arbitration policy
- Rules for how Arbitrators decide cases.
- Banning policy
- Extremely disruptive users may be banned from Wikipedia. Please respect these bans, don't bait banned users and don't help them out. Bans can be appealed to Jimbo Wales or the Arbitration Committee, depending on the nature of the ban.
- Blocking policy
- Disruptive users can be blocked from editing for short or long amounts of time.
- No open proxies
- All public proxy servers which could be used by anyone to hide their true IP address are not allowed to edit Wikipedia, and will be permanently blocked from editing upon discovery. (There are no restrictions on reading Wikipedia from public proxy servers).
- Protection policy
- Pages can be protected against vandals or during fierce content disputes. Protected pages can, but in general shouldn't, be edited by administrators.
- Resolving disputes
- The first step to resolving any dispute is to talk to those who disagree with you. If that fails, there are more structured forms of discussion available.
- Semi-protection policy
- Pages undergoing frequent vandalism can be semi-protected to block edits by very new or unregistered users.
- Material which infringes other copyrights must not be added. The legalities of copyright and "fair use" are quite complex.
- Copyright violations
- Wikipedia has no tolerance for copyright violations in our encyclopedia, and we actively strive to find and remove any that we find.
- Fair use criteria
- The cases in which you can declare an image "fair use" are quite narrow. You must specify the exact use of the image, and only use the image in that one context.
- Image use policy
- Generally avoid uploading nonfree images; fully describe images' sources and copyright details on their description pages, and try and make images as useful and reusable as possible.
- It is Wikipedia policy to delete libellous revisions from the page history. If you believe you have been defamed, please contact us.
- Reusing Wikipedia content
- Wikipedia material may be freely used under the GFDL, which means you must credit authors, relicense the material under GFDL and allow free access to it.
