Help:Policies and guidelines
WikiHealth is made possible by the positive collaborative work of the Wiki Community. Because WikiHealth is written and edited by any and all community members, it is very important that certain guidelines be followed. Key WikiHealth policies are as follows:
WikiHealth is a group effort to create a great health and wellness resource. You must expect your writing to be modified, criticized, or improved by others. Changes should be viewed in the spirit of improvement and not as a criticism of your approach or capabilities. Similarly, when editing someone else's work, always be friendly, civil, and supportive. Remember that WikiHealth contributors volunteer to help build this great resource, so please treat them with respect. If you disagree with another contributor or someone who has made edits to your article, discuss changes cordially, do not lose your 'cool'. Writers and editors who can't cooperate and work for the best interest of the group will be discouraged or prevented from participating.
Vandalism is defined as:
3. No egregious self/product advertising.
WikiHealth exists to help people, not for product promotion. While we encourage useful articles about where and how to find optimal health care, as well as such things as what and where to purchase health supplements and remedies, writers should refrain from creating articles to purely promote one specific business without providing useful insights to the our readers. While you are welcome to post an external hyperlink, the WikiHealth community reserves the right to delete hyperlinks or entire articles that over step the bounds on self-advertising.
4. WikiHealth DOES NOT validate or reinforce ANY OF THE MEDIAL OR HEALTH ADVICE offered on this site.
5. WikiHealth asks that all users document their changes in the Summary of Changes box on the edit page. Part of what makes the WikiHealth community to successful is the use of editing to improve and augment articles. Thus, showing reasons for edits and taking credit for them is helpful to writer and reader.
6. This is a family content oriented site. Please don't post content that would be inappropriate for any audience. Profanity, adult content, hate based, anti-social, threatening or racist content, or instructions for obviously illegal activities are inappropriate for WikiHealth.
