What is Civility? Edit

It is a standard of conduct that sets out how Alien Species Wiki editors should interact: editors should always endeavor to treat each other with consideration and respect. Even during heated debates, editors should behave politely, calmly, and reasonably, in order to keep the focus on improving the wiki and to help maintain a pleasant editing environment.


Incivility Edit

Incivility consists of personal attacks, insulting other users, rudeness, disrespectful comments, excessive profanity, terse or aggressive behaviors that disrupt the project and lead to unproductive stress and conflict.

Editors are human, capable of mistakes, so a few, minor incidents of incivility are not in themselves a major concern. A behavioral pattern of incivility is disruptive and unacceptable, and may result in blocks if it rises to the level of harassment or egregious personal attacks.

A single act of incivility can also cross the line if it is severe enough: for instance, extreme verbal abuse or profanity directed at another contributor, or a threat against another person can all result in blocks without consideration of a pattern. Disruptive editing is closely related to incivility, although it is possible to edit tendentiously without being incivil.
