Examples[edit] If someone nominates one of your favorite articles for deletion... do explain why the subject meets inclusion criteria, providing reliable sources to support your assertion. do not nominate another similar article for deletion, giving the same rationale. If you have nominated an article for deletion, and others favour keeping it... do participate in the discussion, basing your argument on policies and guidelines. do not create an article on what you consider to be a similarly unsuitable topic, with hopes that others will make the same arguments for deletion. If someone deletes from an article information which they call "unimportant" or "irrelevant", which you consider to in fact be important to the subject... do explain on the article's talk page why you feel the material merits inclusion. do not delete most of the remaining article as "unimportant". If you think someone unfairly removed a reference to a self-published source... do explain why the use of the source in question was appropriate in that instance, or find a better source for the information. do not summarily remove all references to sources which appear to be self-published. If you think someone unfairly removed "unsourced" content... do find a source for it, make the referencing clear if it was already present, or explain why the content in question shouldn't require a cited source. do not summarily remove from the page everything which appears to be unsourced. If you feel that it is too easy to add misinformation to Wikipedia... do watch recent changes and fact-check anything that looks at all suspicious. do not create an elaborate hoax with hopes of getting publicity for it. If you feel that a particular source does not meet Wikipedia standards... do express your concerns on the talk pages of articles which cite it, or at the reliable sources noticeboard. do not add even more references to the source, with hopes of provoking opposition to its use. If you think that the Arbitration Committee has conducted inappropriate CheckUsers... do express your concerns on one of the CheckUser policy talk pages or at a relevant Arbcom page. do not frivolously suggest a CheckUser. If you think that this list of examples has become excessively long and boring... do opine that the guideline's purpose would remain clear even if half of the examples were deleted. do not add 47 more examples just to show that people won't actually read such lists.


Important note[edit] Shortcut WP:NOTPOINTy A commonly used shortcut to this page is WP:POINT. However, just because someone is making a point does not mean that they are disrupting Wikipedia to illustrate that point. As a rule, editors engaging in "POINTy" behavior are making edits with which they do not actually agree, for the deliberate purpose of drawing attention and provoking opposition in the hopes of making other editors see their "point".
