Although this page is titled "rules", the following are only strong recommendations. Strict rules are, of course, impossible to enforce on a wiki, and besides, OrbiterWiki may need to go beyond these rules in various situations as agreed to by the community.
- Please read and observe the Guidelines (and consult them if you're unsure!)
- Log in before you edit a page
- Remember that you are not on Wikipedia - think twice before making some word a link
- The focus of this wiki is Orbiter and spaceflight. Content not directly related to these two topics will get deleted.
Obvious netiquette rules (or, rather, reminders):
- Respect other people's opinions even if you disagree.
- No personal attacks. Please behave civilly. It is also not appreciated to create user accounts which have the intent to attack users.
- No pornography, no strong words, no gore. This wiki is open to all ages. That also applies to the name of user accounts.
- Don't impersonate living people. Some of them might not be happy with your representation of them. Obvious fake accounts will get permanently banned.
- Multiple accounts are discouraged.
- If you use sock-puppet accounts to bypass active bans, you will get permanently banned, as well as all located sock puppets.
- Proxy servers are practically allowed, as we usually don't bother, but we reserve us the right to block them for fighting vandalism. Yes, this means you can't rely on them.
