The Lorde Wiki is an online encyclopedia for the Lorde Fandom and, as a means to that end, an online community of people interested in building a high-quality encyclopedia about Lorde's world, music, albums and significant persons and things in a spirit of mutual respect. Therefore, there are certain things that The Lorde Wiki is not.
The Lorde Wiki is not an indiscriminate collection of information; merely being true or useful does not automatically make something suitable for inclusion in this encyclopedia. Although there is an ongoing debate about the encyclopedic merits of several article types, consensus is that the following are good examples of what The Lorde Wiki is not.
The Lorde Wiki is not a publisher of original thought
•Personal essays that state your particular feelings about a topic (rather than hard fact). The Lorde Wiki is supposed to compile verifiable knowledge of Lorde's world. It is not a vehicle to make personal opinions become part of accepted Lorde knowledge. In the unusual situation where the opinions of an individual are important enough to discuss, it is preferable to let other people write about them. Personal essays on topics relating to The Lorde Wiki are welcome in your user namespace assuming they meet the Guidelines.
•Discussion forums. Please try to stay on the task of creating an encyclopedia. You can chat with other users about The Lorde Wiki-related topics on their respective user talk pages, and should resolve problems with articles on the relevant talk pages, but please do not take discussion into articles. Lorde Wikians who wish to hold casual discussions with fellow Lorde Wikians can use private Instant Messaging systems, Email, or the Off-wiki forums. Please note that users who have joined only for casual conversation on the blogs or talk pages will not be tolerated long term. All users are expected to contribute useful information to the Wiki rather than just chattering. Public Forums for this purpose already exist and we are not well equipped to such activity.
