Omniversalis:Policies and guidelines
Omniversalis is a Wikipedia-style worldbuilding wiki geared toward facilitating the creation of constructed worlds and languages across all types of genres and settings. Naturally, this means that a wide range of contributors and roleplayers will join to help add to this creative experience on the wiki. Therefore, to ensure an enjoyable experience for all here at Omniversalis, we have a set of policies and guidelines all members of our community are expected to review and keep in mind to maintain a friendly and cooperative atmosphere on the wiki. Despite the open-and-free focus of Omniversalis, rules are needed in order to maintain this mantra.
