Wikipedia:Assume guid faith

Frae Wikipedia, the free beuk o knawledge

Assumin guid faith is a fundamental principle on Wikipaedia. It is the assumption thit editors' eedits an comments are duin in guid faith. Maist fowk try tae gie a haun wi the project, no hurt it. Gin this wasna true, a project lik Wikipaedia wad hae be doomed frae the stairt. This guideline isnae needin editors continue tae assume guid faith in the presence o obvious evidence tae the contrar (vandalism). Assumin guid faith daesna bar cantation an criticism. Raither editors shoudna attribute the actions bein criticised tae malice unless there is speceefic evidence o malice.
