The LGBTA+ Wiki is intended to be a resource to learn about sexualities and genders, particularly those that don't have much information about them online. Before you start writing an article read this page to make sure the page is relevant, and allowed on this wiki.
After this you should read the style guide to ensure your page meets our standards for formatting.
- Articles must follow the community guidelines.
- Articles cannot promote hate speech, this includes anything that promotes TERF, truscum, or exclusionist ideology or anything that implies that these ideologies are legitimate. Making such articles will result in an indefinite ban.
- Absolutely no "joke pages" or "satire pages". These pages will be treated as hate speech, regardless of intentions.
- No pages that imply pedophilia, zoophilia, necrophilia or similar are LGBT+. These will be treated as hate speech.
- No identities that were created with the purpose of passive-aggressively complaining about another identity.
- No pages that are [specific person]sexual or [specific small group of people]sexual, real or fictional.
- Absolutely no pages that are [real life person]gender or [real life group of people]gender.
This wiki is for LGBT+ identities and terminology that is used by the LGBT+ community or is relevant to the existence of the LGBT+ community. All pages must be relevant to this. Additionally we have other rules on what is and is not within the intended scope of this wiki.
- No pages about kinks, fetishes, BDSM terms, or similar are allowed, that is outside the scope of this wiki and not appropriate for the intended audience.
- No pages for individuals, couples, or small groups. This wiki is for identities, terminology, and occasionally large or significant groups.
- No pages for LGBT+ sub-groups based on ethnicity, nationality, religion, politic affiliation, or ideologies (eg: Israeli transgender, queer anarchism, etc.)
- No pages for specific subcategories of objectum, that is outside the scope of this wiki. We only allow pages for attractions to humans, humanoids, representations of humans/humanoids, or things of human-like intelligence.
New pages must be relevant and significant enough to warrant having a full page. The follow is the guidelines for what is and is not considered significant enough for a full page:
- No pages for alternate spellings or alternate names of terms that already have a page, unless it's a redirect.
- No pages for individual pronoun sets.
- No pages specifically or a flag or an alternate flag.
- No pages that are [specific character]gender, with the definition "a connection to [character]". Unless the definition is more complex then that the page will be deleted.
- We do not need a page for every possible demigender, -flux gender, or -girl, -boy, -nonbinary, etc, variations of genders. These pages are redundant and there and infinitely many of these variations. Therefore, pages for specific demigenders, -flux genders, and variations of genders are only allowed if they are exceptionally well known, significant, unique, or otherwise if significant amounts of new information is provided that cannot be put on related pages.
- We do not need a page for every possible romantic orientation. Any sexual orientation can have a romantic counterpart, so once again these pages are redundant. Pages for non-aro-spec romantic orientations should only be made if the identity is exceptionally well known, significant, unique, or significant amounts of new information is provided that cannot be put on the -sexual version of the identity.
- Similarly, we do not need a page for every possible specific tertiary orientation. Pages for specific tertiary orientations should only be made if the identity is exceptionally well known, significant, unique, uses exceptionally an common prefix, or otherwise provide significant amounts of new information that cannot be put on related pages.
- We do not need a page for every possible combination of identities. Pages for "combination identities" (ie, demisexual bisexual, heterosexual homoromantic, etc.) are only allowed if they are a combinations of two identities. We do not allow pages for combinations of three or more identities, unless all the identities are thematically connected by having the same prefix (ie, aroace agender). Additionally these "combination identities" must be exceptionally well known, significant, unique, use exceptionally common identities, or otherwise provide significant amounts of new information that cannot be put on related pages. Pronoun variations (they/them lesbian, etc.) count for this.
- You do NOT have to ask to make a page.
- You do NOT have to personally identify as something to make a page for it. (As long as you are able to accurately understand the concept.)
- Do not plagiarize. Do not directly copy/paste the definition from somewhere else without additions or alterations. 99% of the time it does not meet our criteria for articles.
- If you make a page for an identity and the definition is identical to a pre-existing term then your page may be deleted.
- A pronoun set is not a gender. Any "gender" pages that are just defined as someone who uses a given pronoun set will be deleted.
- This is not a social media platform. Do not make a page to promote discord servers, social media accounts, or other websites.
- You are responsible for making sure your page meets the standards listed here and in the style guide. If there are minor aspects to that are wrong it can be edited. If there are major sections that are wrong or missing, or the page is incomprehensible then it will be deleted.
