So a newcomer sees 20 paragraphs about how you're not supposed to edit your
own article, and then a sentence saying otherwise.
I don't think that'll work unless you make the exemption prominent enough that
it doesn't seem like an afterthought to anyone reading the page. And that I
don't think is possible. Ideally, we should soften the language that
implies a near-absolute prohibition, but nobody will stand for that.
Most rules have exemptions. If that takes anyone off guard by our
rules having exemptions, I'd be surprised. Just make it clear by
placing it near the top or giving it a section header.
