FANDOM



Be nice and treat people with respect. Cyber-bullying is far from allowed. Bullying can hurt other user's feelings. Being rude, insulting other users, putting down others, discriminating because of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc., intimidating others, harassing, threatening, or calling others inappropriate names fall under the category of bullying.

Cursing is not allowed anywhere on this website. This goes for every user, including the non-English speakers ones. Any form of profanity, vulgar language, sexual terminology, or offensive/inappropriate terms are not allowed and will not be tolerated.

Keep your personal information to yourself. Your security is something really important for us, and we don't want anything bad to happen to you. While talking to other users, please do not give out personal information, as messages on this site are not private and can be viewed by anyone. Personal information includes your full name, address, school and phone number.

All kinds of inappropriate material are not allowed. Inserting sexually explicit content or pictures can get you blocked anywhere from a month up to a permanent ban.

Do not spam anywhere on this wiki. Spamming is posting/commenting the same thing over and over again, usually just to get achievement points. Commenting the same thing more than once and editing a page once every word just to get achievement points falls under the category of spamming.

User pages are only to be edited by the user. In case you want to add something, correct grammar, spelling, punctuation errors, etc., please get the user's permission before editing the page. However, reverting vandalism is an exception to this rule.

Notify an administrator in case any user breaks a policy. If you want a page or a comment to be deleted; or in case you want to close a thread, please notify an administrator. In addition, warning templates, blocking templates, and banned from chat templates are only to be used by Descendants Wiki staff.

Do not ship wars. Wars are not tolerated on this wiki. Make sure to state your opinions in a polite way, and try to agree to disagree.

English is the official language from this wiki. All the edits must be in American English. If you're not an English native speaker, please use a translator to add information to pages or ask another user to help you. Don't be afraid of making mistakes, we appreciate foreign users making an effort to speak English. When commenting, using the chat and forums, English is still preferable, as it keeps everything understandable for everyone.

Make sure to follow this rules on the wiki. Not having read these policies is not an excuse. In case you need help or you don't understand a policy, feel free to contact an administrator.

Do not create/remove templates without notifying an administrator. Make sure to notify an administrator if a certain template is needed in order to create it, otherwise, the template may be deleted. In addition, do not remove templates from pages unless they are falsely added, and please refrain from drastically changing templates unless it is necessary.

Do not remove information unless you know it is false. Removing content based on your dislike of a particular pairing or any other topic is considered vandalism.

Do not create a page with false information. Creating pages that are irrelevant or contain false information is not allowed. This includes making duplicates of existing pages.

Do not rename pages without a valid reason. Renaming pages into something irrelevant or useless is considered spam.

Unnecessary edits

Unnecessary editing is defined as making edits that make no contribution to the page whatsoever. The following list contains different edits that fall under the category of unnecessary:

  3. Taking off and adding back punctuation marks without any reason.
  4. Taking off information then putting it back on.

Take into account that an administrator can determine whether the edits made by users falls under this category or not. If you disagree with the decision taken by the administrator, feel free to start a discussion about the problem in the Admin Noticeboard, so other admins can check on it and determine what to do with your case.

Procedures

  1. For the first offense for first timers, most will be given a reminder of not to do it again and will be reminded of the rules. First time offenders will not receive reminders if their offense is obviously intentional or deliberate.
  2. The first offense (second for first timers who got a reminder) will be a warning to the user by an admin. The warning will inform the users of what they did wrong and what category policy they broke. They will be asked not to do this again and will be warned of the block.
  3. If the user does this same offense again, they will be blocked for a certain amount of time.

Rules

  1. All users must receive warnings for each offense they make.
  2. Each rule of the Descendants Wiki policies counts as a different offense. Therefore a user cannot be warned then blocked for doing two different things. For example, if a user was bullying another and they got a warning, they cannot be blocked if they vandalize a page. They would receive another warning since vandalizing a page is a different rule broken.
  3. Users will be allowed to post on their own message wall while blocked, however privileges will be taken away if they cause trouble.
  4. The amount of time you are blocked increases each time you are blocked.
  5. Admins must check user block logs and warnings to decide whether the user should be blocked or warned and to decide the block time span.
