Wikipedia:Mistakes are allowed

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

While editors work on Wikipedia, mistakes are not only allowed but inevitable. Perfection is impossible.

Mistakes may not be acceptable if:

  • They are purposeful (not "mistakes")
  • They occur a reasonable period of time after one has been warned that similar actions were mistakes
  • If they regard biographies of living people

However, mistakes may not be used to:

  • Prove that someone is unqualified to edit pages regarding a topic

Mistakes should be met with counsel, not criticism.
