  9. Profanity, vulgarity, and otherwise inappropriate language will not be tolerated.
  10. Edits such as, taking periods off pages and putting back on, adding extra punctuation, taking off info and putting back on, or adding the same info in different ways, are considered unacceptable edits.
  11. Removing content based on your dislike of any topic will be considered vandalism and action will be taken against the concerned user unless the user the page belongs to gave you permission to edit.
  12. Trolling. Don't feed the trolls and make sure to report them to administrator (or bureaucreat).
  13. User pages are only to be edited by the user. You can only edit their user page if you are correcting their spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
  14. Please keep personal information to yourself. This includes your age, email, school, address and phone number. Additionally, do not request personal information from any user under the age of 18. This is also against FANDOM's Terms of Use.
  15. Inserting sexually explicit content and pictures are prohibited!
  16. Not reading the rules isn't an excuse.

  20. Do not harass the admins in any way, shape, or form.
  21. Users who consistently request rights, be it on chat or on an Administrator's message wall, will not receive said rights. Users who fail to listen will be blacklisted from user rights at the discretion of the Administrators.
  22. Users that are not chat moderators or higher should not minimod - that is, enforce the chat rules. If you see someone breaking the rules, please inform a chat moderator or administator about this.
  23. Users are discouraged from creating multiple accounts, otherwise known as sockpuppets. Users are permitted to have alternate accounts, provided the admins are informed prior to the account's creation and are used to the wiki's benefit. However, sockpuppeting for any other reason warrants a block depending on the severity of the offense.
  24. Staff members may be nominated for promotion/demotion only at the discretion of the administrators and bureaucrats. In addition, please refrain from making "jokes" about rights, promotions, and demotions if they are not in your control.
  25. Users are not allowed to edit pages not created by themselves without permission, with the exception of free-editing seasons, spelling, grammar or page organization edits.
  26. Jokes are not an excuse to break the policies.
  27. Please do not advocate the death of another user. Things like "I wish User X was dead", "User Y is in the path of the storm and will die", "The storm killed 10 people (including user Z)" will not be tolerated. The section that states that will be removed, and the user will receive a reminder or warning, depending on the case.
  28. Use clear and descriptive file names, without being excessively long, while avoiding generic, non-specific file names. "Chan-hom 2015-07-08 0425Z.jpg", for example, is better than "Image01.jpg" or "DSC0001.JPG".

General policies

Chat users agree not to:

  • Harass any other members of the wiki or say something that could put them down
  • Spam or post links with explicit content
  • Troll
  • Impersonate any other person or celebrity
  • Cause unnecessary drama or arguments
  • Ask for personal information (address, password, etc.) of anyone who is uncomfortable giving it out

Other policies

Chat moderators may enforce other policies on chat as they see fit. These include but are not limited to:

  • Common sense. If there is something which you know may upset or anger someone, do not do it. If you have any questions, it is always better to ask an admin or moderator before proceeding.
  • Avoid spamming the chat with emoticons which may cause other users' chats to lag.
  • Speaking in sentences that people can understand using proper English.
  • Including everybody in the conversation.

Appealing bans

If there is contention about the ban, banned users may reply directly to the ban notice they receive upon being removed from chat. If the issue cannot be fully addressed there, the banned user may post on an admin's message wall explaining the situation and why they feel the ban was unjust.
