Core Content Policies of Wikipedia

  1. Neutral point of view: Be fair and without bias when editing articles. 
  2. Verifiability: Add a reliable source as a reference when writing facts.
  3. No original research: Do not write original thoughts. Instead, all material must be attributable to a reliable and published source. 

Best Practices

  • Initially, the visual editor mode is easier to use for most edits.
  • When adding facts, always add references so that others can see that your information comes from a reliable source. 
  • Be bold!
