EndMyopia:Ignore all rules

They're doing pretty well, maybe we can learn a thing or two...
|This page documents an EndMyopia Wiki policy.|
If a rule prevents you from improving or maintaining EndMyopia Wiki, ignore it.
Ignore all rules is a fundamental principle of editing Wikipedia, and the same goes for Endmyopia Wiki as well.
The essence of ignorance
Implications of this policy are:
- You don't need to know all of the rules before contributing.
- If there's a better way to do something than what the rules say, do it the better way.
Successfully ignoring rules
Most of the time when editing Endmyopia Wiki, you don't really need to know what the rules are. Just be bold, use common sense and you should be fine.
If you do "break" a rule – knowingly or unknowingly – another editor may explain to you which rule you broke. If you find the rule sensible, you will understand why the other editor suggested it should be followed. If you do not see the sense in it, however, you should explain why you disagree with it. Other editors will in turn respond, and with some luck, a sensible approach will eventually be adopted, which may involve ignoring the rule, following it, or taking an alternative approach that resolves the dispute to everyone's satisfaction.
What ignore all rules doesn't mean
You can't cite EndMyopia:IAR as a justification to do anything. Essential rules to consider are:
The above three are the most important. Other rules can be ignored as appropriate with common sense.
