AVfM:List of policies
All contributors, including administrators, must adhere to these official AVfM Reference Wiki policies at all times. That is non-negotiable, however discussion of problems, issues and suggestions relating to site policy is welcomed on the relevant talk page (or this talk page for general policy matters). Administration reserves the right to review and policy as required.
The following list of policies is not exhaustive legislation defining what is acceptable and what is not. Use common sense when facing a question that is not dealt with directly here. Much of this policy is derived from Wikipedia's corpus of policy, therefore much of what applies to Wikipedia will probably work (where not explicitly contradicted) here.
AVfM Reference Wiki is not a general-purpose wiki, a support group, nor is it a blog. It is neither the place for essays, polemic, demagoguery, editorials, nor venting — it is a reference library. To maximise the usefulness (and its chances of success), the following policies apply to content:
- Copyright (third party and AVfM)
- No original research
- Neutral point of view
- Living persons
- Deletion policy
- Relevance policy (i.e. staying on topic)
- Opposing viewpoints, material contradictory to MHRM goals
- Material never acceptable
