Any time that people work together, it is important to make rules that they should agree to follow. Most of the rules written here must be followed by everyone, and some of the rules are still being decided.

Most of the time, if a specific rule is not here yet or if a situation is not covered by the rules here, we will look at the rules on English Wikipedia, on Simple English Wikipedia, on English Wiktionary, and on other Wikimedia projects, and use common sense.

The Wikimedia Foundation has made rules that we can not change, because all projects must follow them.

Other rules

Hard rules

These are rules about how editors and administrators must act.

Soft rules

These are rules for writing articles for the Simple English Wiktionary.
