dont make it personal

Don't make it personal is a wiki best practice.

With a few important exceptions such as a personal essay?, writing in a wiki should avoid first person? and second person point of view entirely, and pesonal pronouns in general.

Avoid personal pronouns: he, she, I, us, them, they.

Whenever possible write from the neutral point of view where "we" means "everyone".

Writing from a personal or individual point of view will deter most editors, and annoy some because they will think "can't this person get a blog" personal commentaries are not what wiki is designed for.
