  • HymnWiki is not responsible for the content of this site, nor the conduct of its users—it is a wiki. Users of the site are responsible themselves for what they post. Users are instructed in the proper use of this site, but HymnWiki itself is not responsible for what they do. Users who violate the terms of this site risk being blocked (and likely more, if legal/civil authorities require).
    • It should be noted that new users that can edit must be approved, currently, due to spammers. The stuff on the site should be entirely safe, copyright-wise. However, if you see something we disputable, please let us know. Thanks! Veramet 18:31, 1 February 2012 (MST)
