RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $2120Goal: $3500

This is the list of guidelines defined by the RationalWiki community. These are not site rules but rather a list of standards we as a community want to live up too. Please do your best to live up to these standards.

Standards of Behavior

  1. This is a mobocracy. The only way to describe how things are done around here is with the tautology that things are done around here the way they are done around here. We are ultimately an expression of the active editors on this project. What is written about, how it is discussed, parsed and organized is a reflection of the community makeup, and not a set of rules or policies.
  2. Personal "attacks", however justified, are strongly frowned upon.
  3. Personal information about other users that is not volunteered by that user should not be posted on this site.
  4. An editors User page space is inviolable; they are free to do with it what they want, and no one should edit it without permission. However, the user talk page space is public and does not belong to the user. No deletion of material is permitted, but archiving maybe done periodically.

Standards of Style

  1. Please do your best to watch for spelling and grammar mistakes. If you see some fix them!

Site structure and Organization Standards
