1. This is a community project. Do not create or edit an article without being prepared for others to improve, change, or correct it. Please refrain from edit wars.

2. Articles should be relevant in some way to the BDSM/fetish lifestyle.

3. Articles should be factual in nature. If an opinion is expressed then it should be clearly indicated as such and should be relevant in helping the reader gain a broader understanding of the topic. (There is a template to highlight a topic as being a point of view - just put the text {{POV}} into the topic.). Unlike the Wikipedia we do allow original research on the Wipipedia, however, editors will look for other sources that support the topic. Where editors consider that the original research is a hoax or an expression of a sexual fantasy it will be deleted.

4. Articles about people are generally discouraged except where that person has had a genuine impact on the fetish and BDSM scene. Advertorials that are advertising services offered such as a Pro-Domme will be removed. There are other sections in the LFS which cater for this. The exception to this is the registered user's home page which can contain (within reason) whatever personal details the user wants to supply.

5. Information on clubs and shops is allowed but should be kept to the specific pages on shopping and clubbing. Attempts to add links to businesses in other articles (advertising) should be considered for removal unless it is agreed that the inclusion is of benefit to the reader. External links created by people who are suspected of having links to the site concerned will be treated as advertising and will be deleted. It is OK to post a link to a great website that you know about but not OK to promote your own website.

6. All articles should be linked to the relevant category to help people navigate the site and find out information on related topics.

7. Please do not add new categories. If you think a new category is needed or feel that the existing system could be improved, then voice your suggestions on Talk:Main Page or message one of the sysops.

8. Copyrighted material must not be submitted without the express permission of the owner.

9. If copyrighted material is supplied with the permission of the copyright holder then an acknowledgement should be given.

10. We are a UK site covered by UK law. Any images uploaded to the site must comply with UK obscenity laws. Basically no hardcore pornography please!
