There are a few but very strict rules that Wikipedia community has parroted for all the Wikipedia editors, writers, and the page creators; follow those rules, and you are in the safe zone already; violate any of the rules, the Wikipedia community will make you stand outside the platform. You should know that the Wikipedia is super strict about their rulebooks and limitations; any violation that came across the sight of the Wikipedia community ultimately comes under the red zone.

On the English Wikipedia and some other language versions, Wikipedia only allows to create the new page if you have a properly registered profile on the website. Without a registered account, no one can create a new article for the Wikipedia page on certain language editions of the Wikipedia.

It is needed to carry out thorough research before you edit an existing Wikipedia page or create a fresh Wikipedia page article. Make sure the data that you are fetching must be extracted from the reliable source, which can be used for the citation on the page that you are adding or the edit you are making on the surviving page.
