Meta:Purpose

This article will outline the purpose of the Lolcow Wiki. All content must be held to these standards.

Neutral

Someone worth documenting is entertaining by themselves.


The primary focus of this wiki is to document People of Interest in full detail, without being crude or outright insulting. Someone worth documenting is entertaining by themselves. Tragedy can be comedy, but when an article is nothing but personal attacks, the content becomes tainted. An article written by a malicious author will cause something inherently funny to be uninteresting.

Most importantly, remember that these people are unimportant Internet weirdos. They do not affect your life in any way. When someone becomes unreasonably upset at online drama and verbally lashes out (especially when in a medium that the person being criticized cannot see), they are known as an A-Log. A-Logging is not allowed on the Lolcow Wiki.


Quality

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.


All articles should be sourced. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Very fantastic rumors are easily spread about these people, and while it may sometimes be more interesting than reality, spreading lies about people isn't the objective of this website, and doing so will reduce the overall quality and reliability of all articles. Second-hand or speculative material should be denoted as such to maintain integrity.
