Memory Alpha
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.

As a general rule, it is important that users log in when making changes, because the changes can then be attributed to their username. You'll find that regular contributors are generally more suspicious and more critical of edits that are made anonymously.

But more than just assigning credit, logging in is important so that others can contact you if they have concerns, questions, or compliments concerning an article you wrote. Logging in helps to build the team, and helps others come to trust your contributions.

Anyone can create a username and maintain their account on Memory Alpha, and remain completely anonymous – you don't have to provide your real name, e-mail address, or other information.
