FANDOM


This is PokéFanon's rule list and behavior guide. It works in tandem with the style guide and other policies. An admin will warn you of your possible block time when you break a rule. However, if we believe you mean well, we will take extra measures to keep you around! ;)

Simple:

  • Follow the Style Guide and other policies.
  • Follow US law
  • Follow Wikia rules
  • Be a sensible human being
  • Ask for help if you do not understand something.

Detailed:

Level one includes the worst behaviors, and carry the longest block times.

Level 1

  • Vandalism
    • This may be a wiki, but that doesn't mean that the content is owned by everyone. Users shouldn't change other people's property. A page is considered the creator's property unless somebody adopted it (or ownership was otherwise transferred), or in the case of multiple owners, they will be stated.
    • Canon articles may be edited by anyone.
    • Correction of obvious misspellings, or grammatical or typographical errors make the only exception to editing a page with an owner that is not you.
    • If an edit is found to be vandalism, you will be warned, and if you persist you will be blocked based on the type of vandalism. If you were not aware of our page ownership policy, please note that in your reply to any warning you get. However, that will be your only warning.
  • Mature content
    • Children read wikia. Please don't post content that isn't suitable for users under 13 without warnings in red and a page rating. You will be warned when such happens. Mature content includes excessive use of curse words. Minor words such as crap and hell are fine. Just don't use words like <censored> too often. If you do, use the {{censor}} template. It also includes whatever any person off the street would consider <censored> content.

Level 2

  • Plagiarism, art theft, and other copyright violations
    • Consists of posting or using content that isn't owned by you without gaining permission and giving attribution. This is against the law! If you adopt a page, you must also adapt it. You will be warned, and if you continue, appropriate action will be taken.
  • Harassment/Insults
    • To annoy persistently and/or asking someone something multiple times after getting an answer are the things we see as harassment. You will be warned and appropriate actions will be taken. No one likes to be insulted. Depending on how bad the insult is, appropriate consequences will be decided.
  • Threats
    • When you threaten another user, you will be warned. If you continue your bad behavior, appropriate action will be taken.
  • Bad Grammar and Style Issues
    • This isn't a social networking site. If you can't type correctly, the wiki starts to look bad. Follow the Style Guide to keep this wiki looking optimum and presentable! If your page does not meet the expectations set forth in the Style Guide 3 days after creation, it may be deleted at will and a warning will be issued to the creator. If the user who created a poor page has been inactive for at least a year, the article can be deleted at will. Active users may face a block until the user's 13th birthday if under 13 if multiple offending articles exist under their name. You can go here to help with your/other users' grammar! Issues with page deletion can be taken up with an admin.
    • There is a small exception for dyslexic users, because they cannot help making spelling mistakes and typos.
  • Non-PokéFanon page creation
    • If you create pages that do not relate to the wiki, you will be warned, and if bad behavior continues, appropriate action will be taken.
  • Forum Abuse
    • If the Forum Style is not followed, an administrator may delete offending threads. If the abuse continues, a short block may follow.
  • Sockpuppets
    • Sockpuppets used to intentionally break a rule or to abuse the voting system will be blocked indefinitely.

Sock-puppetry

If sockpuppets are used to abuse the wiki or cheat the system, the alternate accounts will be blocked indefinitely. A 1 year block will be enforced for the main account in addition to the 2 months per sockpuppet.

Other

  • Wiki creation
    • Making your own wiki about the same subject and advertising it on PFW. If you advertise your wiki, you have no need to edit this wiki anymore, and you'll be blocked from editing.
  • Follow the rules of RPs.
    • If you break a rule in the RP, you will be removed from the RP. If you do this multiple times, you will be blocked for a week.

Staff

  • You are not above these rules!
  • Follow the rules set forth on the staff home page in addition.
  • Also...

In the words of Wigglytuff's Guild...

ONE! DON'T SHIRK WORK!

TWO! RUN AWAY AND PAY!

THREE! SMILES GO FOR MILES!
