Editing Tips

Incel is not an organization or community[edit]

So try to avoid capitalizing incel outside of the beginning of sentences. Also try to avoid broadbrushing incels into certain beliefs like the media does, unless you can back up your assertion with citations. Please distinguish between incels and self-identified incels.

Account Creation[edit]

Anyone can edit this wiki, but if you don't want to wait hours for your edits to show up, then PM 'Master' in the forums for an account. If you don't use incel forums, you can already edit as a non-registered user, and if you make a few good edits, stop by https://discord.gg/N3gSUQA and request an account there.

Existing Pages and Uploading Images[edit]

Check out https://wiki.incels.info/w/Special:AllPages to make sure you aren't making a duplicate page under a different name! If you want an image embedded in a page, leave a link to it in the source, and we will upload and insert it for you! :)

If you can find a way to verify your identity in the discord you will be given image upload permissions, you'll need to request it.

Remember to link your new pages in existing pages!

Guide[edit]

The first lexicographer to have defined the term "incel" is Ton den Boon. We at Incel Wiki endorse his definition because it is descriptivist rather than prescriptivist. When you edit, please incline towards Boon's definition or another descriptivist definition.

Removal of Pages or images[edit]

If you would like an entire page or image removed you can PM 'Master' in the forums. If you are unable to do so, leave a message on the relevant talk page as an anonymous IP about the desire for image or page removal. We will get to your request as soon as we see it.

Other help[edit]

The most comprehensive documentary that was ever made about inceldom was The Incel Project which unfortunately stalled. If you know of some way to retrieve the content, please leave a message on this talk page.
