Wikipedia:Ignore all uses of "ignore all rules"
|This page is an essay, containing the advice or opinions of one or more Wikipedia contributors. Essays are not Wikipedia policies or guidelines. Some essays represent widespread norms; others only represent minority viewpoints.|
Wikipedia:Ignore All Rules states that "If a rule prevents you from improving or maintaining Wikipedia, ignore it." Some people only pay attention to the last two words, overlooking "If a rule prevents you from improving or maintaining Wikipedia". In the vast majority of cases, ignoring a rule will not make an article better, from an encyclopedic standpoint. There is a reason for Wikipedia policies and guidelines being what they are.
