This article describes the governance of this wiki.
= History =
== Current state ==
Currently (March 2013), the wiki is effectively without government. There is a set of six [https://en.bitcoin.it/w/index.php?title=Special:ListUsers&group=sysop users with admin] rights:
* [[User:Genjix]]
* [[User:Kiba]]
* [[User:MagicalTux]]
* [[User:Nanotube]]
* [[User:Sgornick]]
* [[User:Ripper234]] - Added on March 2013
MagicalTux is the only [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Sysops_and_permissions#Bureaucrats beaurocrat], and nobody else is capable of appointing new admins.
== Future ==
* More admins are needed to make effective progress in governing the wiki.
* A core set of rules are needed. Admins will enforce these rules.
= Proposed Core Rules =
The rules below are only '''proposed''' at this point, some sort of discussion will take place before they are formalized.
They do not replace [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Etiquette standard wiki etiquette], but are rather in place to be used where the etiquette fails.
# Discussions that are not utter rubbish (spam/gibrish) should never be deleted or reverted. [https://en.bitcoin.it/w/index.php?title=Talk%3ATonal_Bitcoin&diff=11554&oldid=11522 Example of rule violation].
# Edits should respect [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Neutral_point_of_view NPOV].
## In case of dispute, citations should be brought in to support a POV.
## Citations should be "convincing". Quoting a few opinions and prefixing an opinion with "some claim that" is not cause to violate NPOV.
# No [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Edit_warring edit wars] are allowed.
= Transgression =
The rules above will only be enforced starting from a particular future date - past "transgressions" are of course not punishable.
Admins will not be trigger-happy, and any punshiment for breaking the rules can (to some degree) be appealed (recommended medium is posting to bitcointalk).
However, rules without a bite are meaningless, and so appropriate measures will be used to enforce this set of rules.
The measures include warnings, locking articles, temporary bans, and ultimately might include permanent bans.
