FamilySearch Wiki:Be Kind to Newcomers
|This page documents a guideline. It is a generally accepted standard that contributors should attempt to follow, though it is best treated with common sense and the occasional exception.|
Any substantive edit to this page should reflect consensus. When in doubt, discuss first on the talk page.
Most newcomers are not familiar with the policies of the Research Wiki. Be respectful when stating policy; refer them to policy pages in a kind manner. Treat them with the respect you would hope to receive if you were new to the Research Wiki as a user or contributor.
