AboutUs Guidelines

At AboutUs.org we believe that by working together we can create an amazing wiki resource and guide to websites.


On this page you can find some basic nuts and bolts about our tools and policies around editing, frequently asked questions, copyright, and legal polices.

If you're new to wikis and curious about what they are and how they work, check out our Wiki Anatomy tours and definition of wiki.

Editing


AboutUs.org pages have editable sections. We assume good faith and give everyone the ability to make constructive edits to help build this website directory. We invite the public to edit pages about websites that they operate or know something about. Here at AboutUs.org we hand-review every edit made to make sure that each is constructive. We remove the few that are not. Anyone can also sign up to be notified when a page that they care about it is edited.

Policies


AboutUs has policies for types of content on our site and how pages are flagged. You can read about these on the AboutUs Policies page.
