Wikipedia:Policies and Recommendations
May 29, 2022
Wikipedia's policies and recommendations are developed by the community to describe best practices, clarify principles, resolve conflicts, and in other ways move closer to the goal of creating a free and reliable encyclopedia. It is highly recommended that you read the Five Pillars page, which contains a summary of the most pertinent principles. While Wikipedia does not have fixed rules, the policy and recommendations pages describe its most well-known principles and practices. Policies explain and describe standards that all users should normally follow, while recommendations are intended to outline best practices for following these standards in specific contexts. Policies and recommendations must be applied using reason and common sense. The Portuguese-speaking Wikipedia maintains some policies developed by the community itself that support the activities in the project. The idea is to standardize some actions, maintain a course and facilitate day-to-day collaboration. You can also participate in decisions. Prepare and submit a proposal on the Esplanade and see what the community has to say.
