Hi all! The Nonbinary Wiki:Content policy has a paragraph that is a little bit ambiguous:

In any case, original research is not allowed; the Nonbinary Wiki is not a place to coin new terms or pronouns, but to document existing ones. Content based on references that have been created specially for that content might be removed. (in the Notability section)

The purpose of this paragraph was to avoid people adding their own creations/coinages to the wiki, since we are about education, not promotion of new terms. However, the policy doesn't say that explicitly, so I suggest replacing this paragraph with the following:

In any case, original research is not allowed; the Nonbinary Wiki is not a place to coin new terms or pronouns, but to document existing ones. References that are tied to the editor who adding the content or that have been created specifically to work around this policy will be removed, together with the referenced content.

Let me know what you think about it!

Hi, I'm a new user, and I need a bit of help. I'm going to be doing a bit of translating on the articles (English to Spanish), but a lot of genders don't have names in Spanish, so I loosely translate them. Example: Nullgener ≈ nulogénero. I was wondering if this would count as "coining new terms", as is mentioned in this thread. Can someone tell me or help see if there are already used translations?
