Wiki enforcement navigation
All users have a right to express themselves. However, obscene words/racial remarks are not allowed. Users who use "illegal" language will be given a formal warning.
Kicking and banningEdit
*If you feel your language will offend, refrain from using it
Users may provide links to this wiki or other websites. However, links to malware/virus infected websites, pornographic websites, and/or inappropriate websites is illegal on all sites associated with Wikia. Do not click on a link that you feel uncomfortable about. Users who send links to malware/virus infected websites, pornographic websites, and inappropriate websites through our wiki chat will be permanently banned and may be reported to Wikia and/or local law enforcement agencies.
Personally attacking a user is considered flaming. The first user to start flaming against another will be warned and if they continue their misbehavior the user will be blocked for a week and will be made to post a message of apology on their victim's talk page.
Avoiding a ConflictEdit
To avoid a conflict just ignore the user who is insulting you. Report this to an admin or chat moderator immediately if you feel you are being attacked.
Sock-Puppeting to sneak a vote or "spy" on users is not tolerated. Sock-Puppeting is creating another wikia account and using it to get another vote on a battle or "spy" on others on chat. If any officials find you Sock-Puppeting, you will get a 20 to 45 day ban depending on your action, sometimes even a Permaban.
Additional Wiki policiesEdit
Spamming is considered posting links, saying the same thing, speaking in all caps, or speaking in disjointed sentences* at least three times in a row or to the annoyance of other users. In a given chat session, the first spamming will be hit with a kicking. Any further spam will result in kicks or bans at the discretion of the chat mod enforcing the policy. For Admins, Bureaucrats, or Chat Mods doing the same, the first offense is a warning on public chat. Subsequent offenses will lead to removal of chat mod status at the discretion of a consensus of Bureaucrats. Afterwards, the demoted user is treated like a normal user who has had their first offense.
*Disjointed sentences are as follows:
etc. It could have been written as follows without a rule break:
Chat Mods, Kicking, and BanningEdit
Users should listen to chat mods. If any user is found breaking the rules, the chat mod has the right to kick or ban as the rule states, or if nothing is stated then it is at their discretion. Kicking may be done as a joke so long as the Chat Mod makes it completely clear to the kicked user that it is meant jokingly. Banning is not allowed as a joke.
Any chat mods accused of abusing their power will be contacted by an admin or a bureaucrat. If the chat mod was found to be abusing their power, they will have their chat mod status revoked. Abuses of power include, but are not limited to:
The one and only time a ban or a non-joke kick is allowed without the recipient having broken any rules is if they literally, in public chat, ask for it. (i.e., they write "Please ban me" or something to that effect)
A kick for a rule break should be taken as a warning, and should be the first punishment used unless the user has made an enormous violation. Since kicking can be undone by getting back on chat, kicking may be done as a joke so long as the Chat Mod makes it completely clear to the kicked user that it is meant jokingly.
A user may be banned at the discretion of a chat moderator for excessively breaking rules. Banning may not be done as a joke. Unfair bans should be protested to an Admin / Bureaucrat directly.
Limited cursing is allowed. Words like shit, damn, hell, bitch, and fuck are fine to use in limited quantities. Excessive use of curse words is grounds for a kick or a ban at the discretion of the chat mod.
