Arbital domain

Ar­bital do­main is a way to group pages to­gether by cat­e­gory. Math­e­mat­ics, Ar­bital, and AI al­ign­ment are all ex­am­ples of Ar­bital do­mains. A page can po­ten­tially be­long to mul­ti­ple do­mains, and a page that’s not in any do­main is con­sid­ered un­listed.

You must be trusted in a do­main in or­der to cre­ate pages there. If you are not, you can still sub­mit your pages for ap­proval. Once you’ve made some con­tri­bu­tions to Ar­bital, you will be pro­moted to trusted.

Pre­serv­ing qual­ity of content

Every au­thor is an ex­pert in differ­ent do­mains. Just be­cause some­one is an ex­pert in physics, doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean they are an ex­pert in psy­chol­ogy. For this rea­son, a user has a sep­a­rate trust level for each do­main.

Pages in­side a do­main have likely been re­viewed by rele­vant ex­perts and likely doesn’t con­tain any ma­jor er­rors. (It doesn’t mean they are com­plete, though.) Un­listed pages don’t have any such as­surance.

How is a do­main or­ga­nized?

When a do­main is cre­ated, one page is des­ig­nated as the root of the do­main, e.g. math do­main root page. Any de­scen­dant of the root page au­to­mat­i­cally be­longs to the do­main.
