Quizbowl Wiki:Privacy policy

From QBWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Quizbowl Wiki strives to be a definitive source for everything related to Quizbowl. That being said, some persons may wish to not have personal details about their lives revealed on the internet. For this reason, the Quizbowl Wiki has introduced the following informal privacy policy.

What Is Always Acceptable For the Wiki

Reasonably available public information, such as being part of a school's quizbowl team or having attended a tournament is always fair game for inclusion on this site. Almost always this information comes from other online sources, and thus is widely available already on the internet.

What May Be Removed From the Wiki

Personal details that do not pertain directly to quizbowl and that are not already available on the internet. For example, a story recounting what you saw Leo Wolpert do at the 2004 Chicago Open is acceptable material for the site so long as it is accurate, but Leo also has the permission to request that such information be deleted. His actual attendance at that tournament qualifies under "What is Always Acceptable For the Wiki".

What is Unacceptable For the Wiki

False and slanderous information is never acceptable on the wiki.

How To Remove Information From the Wiki

Please contact the Wiki's administrator, Jonah Greenthal (jonah+qbwiki@jonahgreenthal.com) if you feel there is something of yours that should be removed.

Please do not make substantial changes to your own page removing information without prior permission: Remember, not only may you be oversensitive about what should be removed, but simply editing a page does not make information disappear-- old versions of the page are always accessible in the history tab. If an administrator agrees that the content was inappropriate, he will delete the entire page and recreate it from a clean version so that the info is actually erased.
