These are the rules that all users on this wiki, including the admins, must abide by. Punishments for breaking the wiki's rules are decided on a case-by-case basis, depending on the severity of the offense and any previous violations.
In accordance to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), users under the age of 13 are not allowed to edit on the wiki. If a user is revealed to be underage, please report it to an administrator with evidence. An underage user will be blocked until they are of legal age to contribute (13 or older).
- Vandalism, trolling, spamming, discriminative, and not safe for work (NSFW) content are all strictly prohibited.
- Discriminative content includes: hatespeech, ethnic slurs, or any hateful action directed towards people based on their orientation, gender, race, etc.
- Not safe for work (NSFW) content includes: sexual or explicit content; generally anything that would be disallowed in a school or workplace. Refrain from mentioning terms listed here, and censor them or put warnings to them if used.
- NSFW discussion can be had if its done in the context of science, such as human anatomy. Keep in mind that admins are allowed to shut down these conversations at any time.
- Avoid multiple posting (posting on the same thread immediately after you just posted), as this is disruptive and a form of spamming; say what you want to say in a single post, and then give others a chance to respond.
- Ways to avoid multiple-posting:
- 1) Don't post until you have put all of your thoughts into your post.
- 2) If you think of more thoughts, then just edit your post and add them in, so it's all in one.
- 3) Wait until someone else replies. THEN you can post again.
- Please report vandalism to an admin if it has not already been dealt with. It is also highly appreciated for any user to help and undo vandalistic edits.
- As a basic precaution, unless an edit is blatant vandalism, please assume the edits a user makes are in good faith.
- If you notice a vandal has been vandalising multiple wikis across FANDOM, consider reporting it to the VSTF (Volunteer Spam Task Force).
- Please be respectful and civil to other users. Do not disrespect, offend, threaten, insult, or argue with other users.
- If you wish to have a discussion with another user over conflicting view-points, please keep it a civil debate. Admins are allowed to end these discussions at any time if they start to get out of hand.
- Posting Artwork If you are posting someone else's original artwork, please include a credit to the artist in your post, and/or a link to where you found it. It is unfair to the creator not to be acknowledged for something they spent time and energy on. Saying you found it by googling or on Tumblr or Pinterest is not sufficient credit. Best practice is to link the post to the artist's own site, where they have chosen to display their own work. And also: If an artist states they do not want their work reposted, please respect this, and do not repost it on our wiki.
- Please censor swearing. Mild swearing such as d*mn or cr*p are permitted, as well as abbreviated ones like "wtf," so long as not used in the context of malicious or offensive intent.
- Please avoid necroposting. This is when a user posts a reply on an old post for which the conversation is no longer active. Necroposting sends additional notifications to other users that were involved in the conversation a long time ago, which can be an annoyance. A good rule-of-thumb is that a post older than 2 weeks is a dead post. If you would like to revive the conversation, please generate a new post, and (if you like) you can copy and paste the link for the previous post within your new post, to show the connection.
- Listen to the staff. If a staff member asks you to stop doing something that is considered harmful or disruptive, please do so.
- No hacking. Don't use hacking of any type, not even for something little. If it is about editing a protected page, message staff.
- Articles are for canon: The article spaces are only for canon facts and material. We do tolerate fan-made material like opinion rants/fanfics/art, but those can only be posted in your own blog space, user page, and discussion post, or the comments section of an article. In addition, do not link to your fan-works in the articles.
- Please respect the LGBT+ community: This includes misgendering others repetitively without trying to recognize their pronouns. Also, ship head-canons are open for discussion, however, a character with confirmed sexuality should not be shipped into something against their sexuality. For instance, it is not ok to ship a canonically lesbian character into a straight relationship. That is lesphobic and lesbian erasure. We shouldn’t respect ships if the ships themselves are disrespectful to the LGBT+ community. That’s like shipping an aro into any ship at all. The whole POINT of having so much LGBT+ diversity is to be recognized for it. The lesbian characters are essentially representation for real-life lesbians, and shipping them into straight ships is disrespectful to lesbians.
- Please do not make light of sensitive topics. Please do not make posts describing violent nature towards characters, especially describing mutilating or killing other characters. It's sensitive and can make others uncomfortable, and it's not funny to joke about that. In addition, serious topics are serious and joking about them can be emotionally triggering.
- Use Trigger Warnings where appropriate. This respects the right of each user to make choices to avoid content that may cause them harm. Full guidance for this may be found in Trigger Warnings Guidance
- Do not endorse problematic ships. Ships that are ab*sive, in*estuous, or p*dophilic should not be supported.
These are the rules made specifically for the wiki's staff. If a staff member breaks any of these rules, please report it to the bureaucrat or a trusted admin, with evidence, so the situation may be taken care of.
- Admins are not to abuse their powers in any way. Their actions should only be to benefit the wiki and not themselves. Administrators are in no way above normal users on the wiki, and are simply users entrusted with powerful editing tools. If an admin is caught abusing their powers, they will be demoted and potentially blocked depending on the severity of the situation.
- Any staff member is eligible for demotion if they are inactive for a long enough period of time. There is no set date for how long a staff member can stay inactive before being automatically demoted due to the circumstances. The amount of time it takes will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
