|The following is a working draft of a proposed Wikipedia policy, guideline, or process.
The proposal is definitely still in development and under discussion, and has not yet reached the process of gathering consensus for adoption. Thus references or links to this page should not describe it as "policy" nor yet even as a proposal.
|Paid Editing Proposals|
|In November 2013, there were three main discussions and votes
on paid editing:
|No paid advocacy (talk) (closed: opposed)|
|Paid editing policy proposal (talk) (closed: opposed)|

Bright lines is a series of lines which if a user crosses, will result in sanctions.
Any user will be sanctioned if, after an appropriate warning, they repeatedly and deliberately edit an article to do any one of these:
- Insert false or dubious information per WP:Hoax, Wikipedia:Vandalism#Hoaxing_vandalism, Wikipedia:Verifiability, and WP:GRAPEVINE
- Inappropriately disparage or praise the subject of the article without citing appropriate reliable sources, and without ensuring that the article contains any known concerns regarding the nature of the disparagement
- Remove or suppress reliably sourced information that appropriately balances praise or disparagement in an article
- An appropriate warning would be a message left on a user's talkpage that clearly identified the behaviour causing concern, and the article where the behaviour occurred.
