In a post by Lindsay ("Adding profiles over 300 years (or 200??)") the idea of a "Wiki Historian Honor Code" (or whatever it would be called) came up.
It would be something that you need to sign in order to add or edit 300-year-old profiles, i.e. the ones we broadly categorize as "historically-significant ancestors".
This would be parallel to the Wiki Genealogist Honor Code. You'd sign your name and it would appear on the page. You'd get a badge. Then you'd be able to edit 300-year-old profiles.
If we were to do such a thing, what would the Honor Code say?
Note that we never implemented this. See http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Permissions for a summary of all current editing controls.
