One of the four thresholds for inclusion of an article in SikhiWiki is Relevance of the article to Sikhism. "Relevance" in this context means that the content of the article must have a connection or "link" to Sikhism and be relevant to the Sikh sangat.

SikhiWiki:Relevance is one of SikhiWiki's four content-guiding policies. The other three are SikhiWiki:Verifiability, SikhiWiki:No original research and SikhiWiki:Neutral point of view. Jointly, these policies determine the type and quality of material that is acceptable to SikhiWiki. They should not be interpreted in isolation from one another, and editors should therefore try to familiarize themselves with all four. The principles upon which these four policies are based are non-negotiable and cannot be superseded by other policies or guidelines, or by editors' consensus. Their policy pages may be edited only to improve the application and explanation of the principles.

One of the keys to writing good encyclopaedia articles is to understand that they must refer only to facts, assertions, theories, ideas, claims, opinions, and arguments that have already been published by reputable publishers. The goal of SikhiWiki is to become a complete and reliable encyclopedia. Editors should cite reliable sources so that their edits may be verified by readers and other editors.

As such, only articles that are relevant to Sikhi will be allowed to be posted. If the article has no relevance or connection of Sikhism, it will be removed. Therefore, please only post articles which are balanced, and have a relevance to Sikhism.

Summary of Requirements

  • 1. Articles should contain only material that has a connection or link to Sikhism.
  • 2. Editors adding new material to an article should ensure that the article is balanced and promotes Sikhi values.
  • 3. The obligation to provide a link to Sikhi lies with the editors wishing to include the material, not on those seeking to remove it.
