Policies and Community Rules
In order to maintain a dictionary that is of any use to translators and students, we have to establish a certain level of trust in the information provided here and that means having policies that ensure that users are not spreading false or misleading information.
We must seek to maintain a certain level of professionalism and integrity so that people can trust the information provided here.
This wiki is about sharing information useful for translators and students of Tibetan Buddhist texts. It is NOT for promoting one's own work, generating money, creating jobs, or any other activities related to generating wealth for oneself. Please act with integrity and with a genuine motivation to help others. If you are found to be regularly engaging in self-promotion, you may risk being removed from the website entirely.
- Upon first infraction of any of the community rules or policies you will receive an official first warning via email, detailing the infraction.
- If we find that you have made edits that are misrepresenting information or otherwise breaking the rules of conduct, we will send a second warning detailing the offenses. At this second stage, we may change your offending contributions and/or add a warning next to your contributions notifying users that this information is suspect. If you attempt to disturb the content of the dictionary, the website itself, or the project in any way, administrators will take action.
- If after a second warning you continue any actions that misrepresent, reduce the quality of, or veracity of the information on the website, or otherwise disturb the quality contributions of other users, your user will be deleted from the website entirely and you will not be allowed to make further edits. Furthermore, your previous edits will be reviewed and if significant problems are found, all of your contributions to the website will be permanently removed.
