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.
