The wiki is based on the idea that all of us when combined have a wider breadth of knowledge than any one person individually. In addition, since our subject matter is fictional, we all contribute different viewpoints and experiences with the games and related information. Blending these varied understandings together is what creates a thorough and solid base of knowledge and strengthens our community.
A common sentiment here and across the wikis and for good reason. It means that we should always give the benefit of the doubt with other editors and assume the work they do is to help and not to hurt. The first interactions with new users are the only chance we have to make a good impression and encourage them to continue.
If you notice a mistake has been made, it is a teaching opportunity. Everyone has to have a first day, and taking the time to explain what they did wrong so they can learn and feel encouraged at the same time is beyond important. I remember my first day and how kind the editors were to me, despite my errors. I still make mistakes and ask questions, every day. No shame in it at all.Even if you are new, there will always be someone even newer, and we should be patient with them. Newcomers will be unfamiliar with the guidelines, but are excited to join in and help. The policy pages will not make sense to them at that moment, even if they do read them. It is our job to guide them in a kind way and give them a chance to learn. On the flip side, if you see someone making a lot of progress, consider sending a compliment their way to keep them energized.
