From Memory Beta:Inclusion policy
- excerpt from subsection "In universe articles"
- ... a source must be the complete and final version of a product; information from pre-release material (trailers, excerpts, and previews) is not acceptable for sourcing in-universe information.
- Content which is not cited to one of the licensed sources, or that cites an unacceptable source - such as fan-fiction, unlicensed publications or speculation - is not suitable for this database and will be removed.
- excerpt from subsection "Real world articles"
- ... articles are written from the real world perspective; subjects include each of the acceptable types of source listed above, the different Star Trek series and miniseries, and persons and companies involved in the production of Star Trek products.
- Background information should be cited whenever possible, from sources such as articles and interviews from magazines or websites, author annotations, or comments by Star Trek content producers in public forums.

- You literally just reworded the policy to suit your interpretation and implementation. That is not something any single admin is empowered to do on their own. Such a change needs to be brought for community discussion and vote. --TimPendragon (talk) 12:15, April 14, 2020 (UTC)
- Tim - you need to calm down. The text excerpted here was written by user:8of5. in 2008. https://memory-beta.fandom.com/wiki/Memory_Beta:Inclusion_policy?oldid=217987
- In fact, the last major changes to the inclusion policy were made in 2015 and 2017 - all documented in the talk page and the history of the inclusion policy article.
- I documented the change i made today on the talk page immediately with a full explanation. And community discussion of the ramifications.
- Please focus on the policy and not this kind of accusation -- captainmike 12:31, April 14, 2020 (UTC)
- Okay, let's keep this discussion here. Now, I'm not making any accusations, I'm looking at edit history, and seeing the change you just made. Even if I mostly agree with it, it's not the "minor clarification" you call it. It's a sweeping reversal. And something that major needed to be discussed before you implemented it. --TimPendragon (talk) 12:36, April 14, 2020 (UTC)
- This isn't the place for this discussion. This forum is a reminder of these two excerpts of policy to explain the recent protections and reversions of information covered by the policy excerpts. -- captainmike 12:39, April 14, 2020 (UTC)
