FANDOM


This is PokéFanon's rule list and behavior guide. It works in tandem with the style guide and other policies. Please take note of these, and ask questions. If we believe you mean well, we will take extra measures to keep you around, and will always leave a warning if you trail off of the path of good behavior. ;)

It's Simple:

  • Be creative, but presentable.
  • Respect others (including work and property).
  • Be a sensible and friendly human being.
  • Ask for help if you do not understand something.
  • Follow FANDOM rules.


Bad Manners

  • 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. (Do not add your personal articles to that category unless you intend them to be open to all. Please read the policy!)
    • Correction of obvious misspellings, or grammatical or typographical errors (or other reasonable maintenance) 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.
      • Please remember not to feed the trolls; calmly ask them to stop and report them to staff.
  • 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.
  • 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/Threats
    • 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. Constructive criticism however, is always welcome.
    • 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
    • Follow the Style Guide to keep this wiki looking presentable! If your page does not meet the expectations set forth in the Style Guide 3 days after creation, 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 multiple offending articles exist under their name. (If you have at least a middle school education in the US, your page will generally be fine.)
  • Non-PokéFanon page creation
    • If you create pages that do not relate to Pokemon in any way, you will be warned, redirected to the proper wiki, and your pages may be removed.
  • Forum Abuse
    • If the Forum Style is not followed, an administrator may delete or move offending threads.
  • Follow the rules of RPs.
    • If you break a rule in the RP, you can be removed from the RP by its owner.

Sock-puppetry

If sockpuppets are used to abuse the wiki or cheat the voting system, the alternate accounts will be blocked indefinitely. A block appropriate for the offense will be placed on the main account.


Staff

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