Pirates of the Caribbean Wiki

Neutral Point of View, or NPOV, is one of the quality standards at PotC Wiki. This principle states that all articles should be written from a neutral point of view, representing views fairly and without bias. The NPOV policy applies to all in-universe articles, real world articles, reader-facing templates, and categories.

NPOV means that where there are conflicting points of view, all significant views should be presented fairly rather than the most popular one being asserted. Readers should be left to form their own opinion. Debates should be described, but not engaged in. Background about who believes what and why should be included.

All points of view should be written in a positive, sympathetic tone. Presenting one view in a positive tone and another in a negative tone can bias the reader. This should be avoided.
