This wiki has its own policies, guidlines or rules and doesn't follow those of any other site. The policies of the SDIY wiki are decided by a consensus of its users. The following are guidelines rather than rules.

General guidelines for the SDIY wiki

In no particular order:

  • If you want something added or changed in the wiki, go ahead and do it.
  • Be constructive - if you don't like something, improve it.
  • Be polite and friendly, help and encourage others to make constructive use of the wiki.
  • For readability, try to keep articles concise and to the point, break up long sections of text.
  • Try to bring new or original information to the wiki rather than just re-using something already elsewhere on the web.
  • Try to give references for what you write, so that it can be verified.
  • Don't write about what you're going to do, when you've done whatever the work can speak for itself.
  • Try not to link to external sites for more information when you could add the information to the page itself.
  • Don't just duplicate information from other sites without improving upon it.
  • Don't hotlink unless the other site explicitly allows it, even then try to avoid it.
  • Don't infringe copyright.

Wikipedia's Help:Introduction to policies and guidelines and Simplified Ruleset give more information about the sort of things Policy should cover.
