This page describes one of Memory Alpha's policies and guidelines.

Please read through the policy below to familiarize yourself with our common practices and rules.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or complaints, please post them on the talk page.

Many people who visit Memory Alpha are unfamiliar with the wiki format. If you're reading this and are hesitant about contributing, we encourage you to be bold and join our project! A wiki's strength is in its members, and the more people participate, the stronger the community becomes.

If someone writes what would be considered an "inferior" article, that's fine! It's always better to have some content (as long as it's on-topic and not patent nonsense) rather than no content at all. Even with an inferior article, it's possible to start rewriting it, to develop it further into something that eventually could become the perfect article.

One more important rule: no one "owns" any of the articles here. There's no specific author who can claim that they wrote all of the articles, so it's perfectly all right to dive right in and add your own ideas to make the article better – as long as you follow the rules, of course!
