We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: End of Week.

Necronia Wiki:Why not sign pages

From Necronia Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Please do not sign pages...[edit source]

Please do not sign your name on any article that you contribute to. The nature and necessity of a wiki makes all of its content subject to revision by nearly anyone. This means that no one "owns" all or any part of any article.

If you don't want your material to be edited mercilessly or redistributed by others, do not submit it.

Please note that this only counts for main namespace articles, i.e, talk pages are exempt from this rule.

Quality of articles[edit source]

If every user was to sign their edits, the content would become obscured, and the wiki would become unusable. A normal Necronia Wiki article may have been edited by dozens of authors many times, and all of these "signatures" would make it difficult to find the actual content of the article.

Credit where it is due[edit source]

All edits that a user contributes are recorded in the edit history for the article, as well as on that user's list of contributions. Your work on this wiki is not anonymous, and all users can easily find all of the fabulous changes you have made.
