==What to write about==
 
You can write a Bluepages article about nearly any location you want! Good topics may include schools, places of worship, stores, restaurants, parks, and hospitals. There is no location too obscure to write about, and we're just as happy to hear about the place that opened last week as we are to hear about the business that's been running for a hundred years. When you start looking into it, you may be surprised to find out how much history there is just about everywhere! However, keep in mind that we generally discourage people from writing articles about individual houses, unless they were at one point the location of a business or public service, because it's difficult to write a good article about them without violating the privacy of the house's current and former residents.

Editing or creating an article about a place or organization you're connected with is not strictly against our rules. However, please keep in mind that Bluepages is not an advertising site. We do not make business recommendations and we have no interest in directing people toward (or away from) your business. We understand that you may be passionate about your subject, but please keep what you add to Bluepages objective and neutral. If you violate these principles, and especially if you're deliberately removing well-sourced negative information about a place you have close connections with, you may be permanently banned from editing Bluepages. If you have sincere concerns about the accuracy of statements on the site that criticize you or your organization, please [[Special:EmailUser/Reschultzed|contact the administrator '''here.''']]
