General Rules on the local KA wiki
- As an editor, you should make helpful, worthwhile edits to pages. You should try to help users find their way, fix up pages that need it, and when possible assist the admin in locating pages that either need not be on here or have been vandalized.
- Do not make any number of pointless edits to gain badges and/or to inflate your edit count. This includes, but is not limited to, adding one category per edit, changing a few words over many edits, or making one edit to add a picture, one edit to change a few words, then another edit to add a category.
- There is absolutely no reason to vandalize any page.
- Do not harass, intimidate, threaten, or express an interest in harming other users in any way/shape/form anywhere on this site or in chat.
- Please be mindful that our editors are of all ages, nationalities, and races.
- (KA WIKI SPECIFIC) We respect individual creativity and autonomy, however we defer to any requests that are brought to our attention from Khan Academy.
- Pre-released material should not be posted on the wiki.
- Straight solutions to problems or exercises should not be provided.
- Information about hacks or glitches should not be posted on the wiki.
- (KA WIKI SPECIFIC) We do not allow conversations or references to ages.
- (KA WIKI SPECIFIC) We do not allow users to edit other user's comments. Admins and Bcrats are allowed to remove comments that they consider to be violating user conduct. The only exception is that a user may delete a comment that contains profanity. Such comments should still be reported to either and Admin or a B-crat.
- (KA WIKI SPECIFIC) Let it be known that no posts on message walls are truly private, that is, anyone can read them. If one wishes to have a private conversation, email or private chat is recommended. However, even email and private chat are only private if both parties agree. It is important to only share appropriate information and consider participants in a conversation before participating.
- (KA WIKI SPECIFIC) Punishment is generally 1 day for a first offense, 3 days for a second offense, and 7 days for a third offense. These are merely guidelines, however, and are up to the discretion of the Admins and Bcrats.
