We have read this essay about interactions between autism-spectrum editors and neurotypical editors.

We agree always to try hard to remember that Aspergers, autism-spectrum and savant editors really can have trouble with intuitive interactions and processing of unclear, imprecise, or ambiguous language, and that doesn't mean that they are "thick", or "disabled", or intentionally disruptive.

We agree always to try hard to remember that neurotypical editors really can get lost or corrupted "data files", and that doesn't mean that they are "thick", or "disabled", or intentionally disruptive.

We agree always to try hard to remember that each type of editor can genuinely fail to see something which is totally clear to the other type, and to work hard on understanding what the other person is seeing and meaning, and not just to dismiss their view as being "wrong".

We agree always to try really hard to assume good faith when dealing with an editor of "the other type" from ourselves, and remember that's it's easy for us to misunderstand each other's abilities and interactions.

  21. I'm not an autie, but I have severe ADHD. I also had lot of trouble with other humans, until I got my diagnosis and started studying human behavior myself knowing I was not neurotypical. I hope you don't mind my signing this. -wʃʃʍ- 00:22, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
  22. Definitely supportive. Gilded Snail (talk) 21:38, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

  24. Am a non-neurotypical myself and definitely support this for working with other editors on the spectrum as well as hoping that more neurotypical editors would get on board, as well. It's time. -- WV 19:50, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

  32. I am signing because I like the intention. However, I can't help asking: how can one assess the personality of another editor (neurotypical, Asperger, autist, whatever) just based on his/her activity in Wikipedia? --Hispalois (talk) 22:27, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

  41. I think Andrea Carter's phrasing ("Autistic, allistic-neurodivergent and neurotypical editors should all be welcome.") makes an important distinction and should also be adopted by us all. —GrammarFascist contribstalk 05:36, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
  42. I strongly support this pact, as a highly neuro-atypical person not on the autism spectrum. —Aetheling (talk) 18:52, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
