Jump to navigation Jump to search

Consensus is Gpedia's fundamental model for editorial decision-making: when it doesn't work, nothing else does either.

In situations involving consensus:
Green check.png Be familiar with relevant policies, guidelines, and past discussions
Green check.png Follow the BOLD, revert, discuss cycle
Green check.png Challenge consensus at the right venue(s)
Green check.png Neutrally ask for more opinions when needed
Green check.png Take intractable disputes to the right dispute resolution process
Red x.svg Don't pretend a consensus you disagree with doesn't exist!
Red x.svg Don't use local consensus to ignore wider consensus
Red x.svg Don't close contentious discussions that you participated in
Red x.svg Don't canvass for support of your position
Red x.svg Don't use tendentious editing to get your way
