Memory Beta has some policies that have been proposed by the administrators and generally accepted by the members. Please read through the policies 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.

The policy changes page contains information about all new suggestions and clarifications incorporated into our policies. Add that page to your watchlist to be kept up-to-date.

General policiesEdit

Remember that above all else, Memory Beta is an encyclopedia. It is a community that is solely devoted to the development of the Star Trek reference database; it is not a chat room or discussion forum. The talk pages are specifically for discussing the writing of articles, and nothing else.

The following are general policies concerning the overall goals and functions of Memory Beta:

Enforcement Edit

For day-to-day operations on Memory Beta, enforcement can be handled by the general membership. Simply pointing out each other's mistakes (politely, of course) is generally sufficient.

For problem cases, the administrators may intervene and enforce a policy, or temporarily lock a page to let things cool down.

In extreme and unusual cases, Chops, Lieutenant Ayala, 8of5 and The Doctor, the project administrators, will step in to ban a user who has proven to be unusually disruptive.
