  • Everyone is welcome to post on the Mailing Lists, as long as they post something related to the Wikipedia project/list purpose.
  • Do BE BOLD and contribute your views to discussion threads, however do remember to respect each other as everyone on the list is on an equal footing.
  • Do put a relevant brief in the Subject line.
  • Do not post off-topic mails
  • Do not troll.
  • Do not use abusive/offensive language.
  • Use your real identity to respond or discuss threads. Sock-puppet users & trolls are likely to be suspended or banned.
  • Do not post advertisements, friend requests, automated mails
  • Avoid using company mail ID's with long disclaimers.
  • Keep the message in thread, subject oriented, fork new threads if necessary.
  • Attachments are not permitted.
  • Avoid mere +1 mails
  • Avoid sending mails which are specific to individuals(like congratulating) to the list, instead send it directly to the person concerned.


The admins of the mailing list reserve the right to issue warnings or block the users in case of severe violations of the mailing list policies. Having said that, Self-control is the best etiquette.
