Some things to keep in mind…

While you're testing, please keep these few simple rules in mind. These rules help keep the community a friendly and enjoyable place to be in.

  • Please make sure your edits do not interfere with the activities of other users.
  • Blocking other users as a test is fine, but please remember to unblock them once you're done.
  • When blocking other users as a test, please don't keep the block active for more than 24 hours.
  • Use common sense when deciding whether or not something is allowed.

This is a shortened version of the testing policy, which provides guidelines on what is and what isn't allowed here. If you have any questions, please read the testing policy before posting in the community portal.
