Talkpage/Forum Discussions[edit source]
The K Project Wiki wishes to prevent issues with things not related to the wiki. For that reason, among a few other things, there is a policy on talk pages and forums.
- The K Project Wiki is not a discussion forum. Talk pages and forum pages should not be used for any discussion not related to improvement of the wiki itself.
- The K Project Wiki is not a help forum. Talk pages and forum pages are not for asking general questions about K. Please use the answers wiki instead.
- When creating a discussion on a subject that already has an article, use the talk page of that article. If the subject applies to multiple articles please navigate to a page that applies to both. This is done to prevent duplicate discussions.
- The forums are for topics that apply to global changes to the K Project Wiki, initiatives to improve the wiki, or alert the community about an important topic.
User Talk Pages[edit source]
User talk pages belong to the community, they are not the property of the user. The talk page is a place for other users to give the user messages, and ask questions and communicate when they have done something in conflict with what they have been doing and try to settle a small issue. For this reason, a number of restrictions are placed on what you can do to your own talk page:
- The Talk page is used for talking to other editors. A post can be added by anyone who has a question or comment about the user. Please, respect the user though.
- When you want to start a question or discussion, start up a new topic. If you want to resume a current (or previous) question or discussion, just post a reply under the previous message.
- Always sign your posts with ~~~~ at the end of your message.
- Do not remove a message from your Talk Page, as the history of the Talk Page shows exactly what the user has done. This history is important when assessing the user's contributions.
- Do not remove or edit old messages, the talk page is the community's way of viewing the history of messages sent to you, this is an open public community where entire histories should be visible.
- If your talk page is getting large or you want to clean up old messages, you are still free to archive the old ones.
- Do not put up notices or tell other users not to write on your talk page, or do other actions that hinder users' abilities to send messages to you.
- Messages can be removed from the talk page if they are vulgar comments used for unreasonable harassment of the user.
- Talk pages are not user pages. Content that is added by users that is akin to content that belongs on a user page may be removed.
