"Assuming good faith is a fundamental principle. It is the assumption that actions and comments are made in good faith. Most people try to help the project, not hurt it. If this were untrue, a project like Wikipedia would be doomed from the beginning. Obviously good faith does not prohibit discussion and criticism, but it allows to think first that it could been due to
a honest mistake or error, a sincere misunderstanding, getting too emotionally involved or simply poor grammar".

- No offence was intended, but to explain that any writer can use any of those languages if he/she wants. However, as Spanish is only my native language, for the rest it would rather avoid localisms, slangs, abbreviations, jargons or any other mumbo jumbos. Actually this "model" was a template commonly used in ES Wikipedia. Thank you anyway for your comment and your attention. Best regards. ABuenoCW 13:51, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
- I see, different cultures :-) Thank you for the explanation. The thing is, here in Germany we rarely use slang when writing in public anyways and "korrekt" means "without mistakes". So such a hint comes over a bit odd. In the hope you don't mind, I took the freedom to adjust the german version a bit. Enjoy! --Traumflug 09:24, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
