Neutral Point of View

On the Valve Cut Content, one of the main goals is to provide useful, complete, and accurate information. To provide the highest quality of information, one must be neutral and without any bias or opinion. This is what is called Neutral Point of View, or NPOV.

What is it?

NPOV is when an editor writes or edits articles with a completely neutral point of view. This means that there is no bias or opinion from one author. This also includes to not use the word "I", or other weasel words.

How do I do it?

To follow NPOV, simply write or edit articles without the use of opinionated words such as I, think, like, believe, hate," etc. Using weasel words, such as some argue, many people thought, and experts say are also against the NPOV.

Advertising is also strictly against the NPOV. Advertising is defined as the promoting (or slander) of specific mods or users. Advertising is strongly advised against, as it severely degrades the quality of the article and makes the author seem biased. Source
