[[Wikipedia:Welcome, newcomers|Newcomers]] to Wikipedia may find that it's easy to commit a ''[[faux pas]]''. That's OK — everybody does it!
▲* '''Making dictionary-type entries.''' We take the stance that ''[[Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not a dictionary|Wikipedia is not a dictionary]]''. Each article should aim to cover its topic beyond a simple definition and teach something about greater context. Pure dictionary definitions belong in our sister project, [http://wiktionary.wikipedia.org Wiktionary].
* '''Making redundant articles.''' Before creating a new article, run a search for the topic — you may find a related one that already exists. Consider adding to existing articles before creating an entirely new one. In searching keywords, remember that article titles are usually singular, e.g. "Tree", not "Trees". Also attempt a search on [http://www.google.com Google] of the form "site:en.wikipedia.org <topic>"; articles may be missed by a Wikipedia search but caught by Google, especially if the terms you choose are not present in the article title.
* '''Deleting useful content.''' A piece of content may be written poorly, yet still have a purpose. Consider what a sentence or paragraph tries to say. Clarify it instead of throwing it away. If the material seems miscategorized or out of place, consider moving the wayward material to another page, or creating a new page for it. If all else fails, and you can't resist removing a good chunk of content, it's usually best to move it to the article's "Talk page", which can be accessed using the "discussion" button at the top of each page. The author of the text once thought it valuable, so it is polite to preserve it for later discussion.
