Wikipedia’s Five Pillars: Number 5

<translate> Wikipedia does not have firm rules.</translate>

  • <translate>

Rules in Wikipedia are not carved in stone, as their wording and interpretation are likely to change over time.</translate>

  • <translate>

The principles and spirit of Wikipedia's rules matter more than their literal wording, and sometimes improving Wikipedia requires making an exception to a rule.</translate>

  • <translate>

[[<tvar|bebold>w:Wikipedia:Be bold</>|Be bold]] (but not [[<tvar|reckless>w:Wikipedia:Reckless</>|reckless]]) in updating articles and [[<tvar|editingpolicy>w:Wikipedia:Editing policy</>|do not worry about making mistakes]]. Prior versions of pages are saved, so any mistakes can be corrected.</translate>
