What to expect from assistance
- Help in learning how to work with the community's standards, norms, and policies to achieve consensus, and how to correctly and non-disruptively make use of policy and process.
- Help to understand what is and is not appropriate behavior, and how to deal civilly and rationally with other editors—including those with whom you may disagree. However, do not expect an assistant to automatically "take your side" in a dispute.
- Note: If you're being disruptive or unreasonable, the assistant may let you know this. You are not required to do anything the assistant says, but advice from the assistant, as from any experienced editor, should be carefully considered. While honest mistakes are acceptable and sometimes expected, that doesn't mean abusive behavior will be overlooked. Be aware: If you cause disruption after being advised not to, you may be refused further assistance.
