Projet:Rules of Everybodywiki

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

If you copy a page from Wikipedia[edit | edit source]

or any other source under CC-BY-SA license, add the template {{Source Wikipedia}} (in wikicode) at the bottom of the article. This will display a link to the corresponding article un Wikipedia. Please do that in order to respect the license CC-BY-SA.

This rule doesn't apply to modules/templates/categories for which a link is automatically displayed.

Everybodywiki doesn't want to create duplicate with Wikipedia, so you can copy articles from Wikipedia (which are not considerd for deletion) only if you are planning to fork (rewrite) it enough to be interresting for users and not considered as duplicate content by search engines.

When cleaning a page[edit | edit source]

On article that were copied from Draft namespace categories are marked as link (in wikicode they start with "[[:")

Don't remove

  • categories even if the page is the only one which belong to this category. These categories will be use to show pages of the same category in the future and a page rely to this category could be imported or created some day.
  • The template {{Source Wikipedia}}
  • Portal bar if any

External links[edit | edit source]

Don't put too much external links especially to the same source. Anyway external links are "nofollow" it means search engine don't follow them and your SEO won't be improved.

Don't put external links in the main content but only in the infobox or the bottom of the page on section "External links" or "references".

Don't replace former wikipedia internal links by external links to Wikipedia

Blanking a page[edit | edit source]

You can blank a page (removing all its content) only if it contains bad or illegal content for example negative and unsourced content. Anyway you have to explain the reason, in case of copyright violation, please put the link to the original source.

Blanked page could be reverted automatically by WikiMasterBot if they are still on Wikipedia, in this case contact us.

Don't blank "edithistory" subpages !

Removing some part of an article[edit | edit source]

You can remove some parts of an article if the content is irrelevant, outdated or illegal, but please describe your changes in the Summary field after clicking "Save changes" button or your edits could be reverted.

User name format[edit | edit source]

Don't try to create a user name close to another username which alerady exists. See full list of current username.

If your user name contents the name of an organisation, you must currently belong to this organisation. The best way to prove you belong to some organisation is to have the name of this organisation in your email address like : myname@organisation.fr

Personal information Privacy[edit | edit source]

...edit your page every 10 seconds[edit | edit source]

Find a balance between...

  • ...too much revisions of your page (You add a word, you save, you add a word you save...) to avoid a too long history. Please use the preview button to see flagrant mistakes you don't want to save.
  • ...wait too long before saving your page, if your computer/device get off or offline or everybodywiki get off then you could loose all of your work not saved.(Even if with chrome, you can restore your sessions and your work)

Tip : save your work (on wikicode) on a text file on your desktop and save it on the wiki only when finished.
