Wikipedia’s Five Pillars: Number 5
Wikipedia does not have firm rules.
- Rules in Wikipedia are not carved in stone, as their wording and interpretation are likely to change over time.
- 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.
- Be bold (but not reckless) in updating articles and do not worry about making mistakes. Prior versions of pages are saved, so any mistakes can be corrected.
