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 making major edits to a page it's recommended that you read this page to ensure your edits meets the suggested requirements.
- Articles must follow the community guidelines.
- Absolutely no "joke edits" or "satire edits". These will be treated as hate speech, regardless of intentions.
- You do NOT need to ask to edit a page.
- You do NOT need to personally identify as something to edit the page (As long as you are able to accurately understand the concept.)
- When adding a significant amount of new content read the style guide.
Dos and Don'ts
- DO fix any spelling or grammar mistakes that you see.
- DO fix any spelling, language use, or formatting so it is compliant with the style guide.
- DO rollback any vandalism you find.
- DO add flags or alternate flag if you find one or make one.
- DO add additional information if it is not present.
- Do NOT remove information or significant portions of content. You can always add new information but do not remove information, especially if it is someone else's writing. If you feel like an article in its current form is inaccurate contact a moderator before making major changes. Even if information is outdated it is still relevant and should be put in the history section.
- Do NOT remove existing flags from a page.
- Do NOT add random "comments" on a page. There is a comment section for a reason. (ie: do not add "wow, i can edit this" or "i identify as this".)
- Do NOT try to fix vandalism if you don't know how to rollback a page. (If you don't you're probably just going to make it more work to actually fix.)
Language Use Reminders
- American English spelling should be used unless it's in a direct quote.
- The months in all dates should be spelled out. Do not use abbreviations.
- The word non-binary should be spelled with a dash. (The exception is when the word is part of a larger word such as deminonbinary.)
- Do not say "NB" or "enby". Say "non-binary".
- Do not say "enbys" or "non-binarys". Say "non-binary people".
- Do not say "transmen"/"transwomen" or "trans-men"/"trans-women". Say "trans men"/"trans women".
