Wikipedia:Assume guid faith
Assuming guid faith is a fundamental principle on Wikipaedia. It is the assumption that eeditors' eedits an comments are made in guid faith. Maist fowk try tae help the project, nae hurt it. If this wur untrue, a project lik Wikipaedia would be doomed frae the beginnin. This guideline daes nae require that editors continue tae assume guid faith in the presence o obvious evidence tae the contrary (vandalism). Assuming guid faith daes nae prohibit discussion an criticism. Rather, eeditors should nae attribute the actions bein criticized tae malice unless there is speceefic evidence o malice.
