Hello <insert name here>! My username is Sym0n1203, but you can just call me Symon or Simon. I am a young Italian guy with a huge passion for the art of drag and everything drag-related.
Computer science is one of my newest passions and it's the reason why I love working on this Wiki, although I stll have so much to learn. I usually spend a lot of time here making sure that everything is perfectly organized and rich of content, I just like helping :)
If you have any concerns about anything (editing, problems with other users, vandalism etc.) or if you just want to kiki, leave a message on my wall or on Discord!
Currently working on a categorization guide for the Wiki.
Official RuPaul's Drag Race Wiki Policy
This page documents widely accepted standards that should normally be followed by all editors.
This page serves as guideline to the creation and managing of categories and category pages in the RuPaul's Drag Race Wiki. These are general rules that should be followed by all editors.
The purpose of categories and their respective pages is to facilitate the navigation of the Wiki, allowing users to find similar pages and go from one page to another one if they share a logical connection.
To be created, a category should fulfill these reuirements:
Number of Members: categories should be created when they can encompass a significant number of relevant articles. A category with only one member is superfluous and doens't serve any purpose.
Objectivity: categories should be based on attributes that can more or less be defined in an objective or statistical way. Therefore, the creation of categories like — for instance — "Funny Queens" should be avoided, as humor is highly subjective and no contestants can be defined as objectively funny. Meanwhile, categories like "Three Main Challenge Wins" are okay, as wins can be counted in an objective way.
Functionality: categories should be useful. No one needs to sort queens by what hair color they wore in their promo shoot, what city their parents are from or what their favorite food is. A category is a tool of navigation in the Wiki, and as such should be useful to its users.
"Categor-inception": most categories should be part of a bigger category, thus creating a "category tree" where almost every one can be reached clicking through categories inside other categories. For instance, the category "Three Main Challenge Wins" should be categorized into "Queens by Number of Challenge Wins". Avoid "category loops": if category A is part of category B, category B shouldn't be part of category A.
