Wikinews:Role account

(Redirected from Wikinews:ROLE)
Green check.png This page is an official policy on the English Wikinews. It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that all users should follow. When making changes to this page, please ensure that your revision reflects consensus. When in doubt, discuss first on the talk page.

Role accounts, which are shared by more than one person, are generally not allowed. This is because Wikinews relies on you developing a reputation based on your edits. If more than one person share an account then no individual reputation will form.

The community may, by consensus, grant exceptions to specific role accounts. This is expected to be infrequent.
