General Rules and ConductEdit

General RulesEdit

  1. As an editor, you should make helpful, worthwhile edits to pages. You should try to help users find their way, fix up stories that need it, and when possible assist the admin in locating pages that either need not be on here or have been vandalized.
  2. Do not make any number of pointless edits to gain badges and/or to inflate your edit count. This includes, but is not limited to, adding one category per edit, changing a few words over many edits, or making one edit to add a picture, one edit to change a few words, then another edit to add a category.
  3. There is absolutely no reason to vandalize any page. Repeating, there is absolutely no reason to vandalize any page. Vandalism only serves to waste YOUR time and get you a week ban per page vandalized. No excuses. No exceptions.
  4. Do not harass, intimidate, threaten, or express an interest in harming other users in any way/shape/form anywhere on this site. This is a community, and if you cannot coexist with the other users in it then this is not the place for you to be.
  5. Plagiarism will not be tolerated here. Period. If you need to pass off other peoples' works as your own, you do not need to join this community, because we do not need people like that here. Plagiarism only serves to make us all look bad and seem as though we condone it.
    We seek to foster creativity and originality, but to pass off someone's work as your own is not only dishonest but illegal too. If this were college, you would be expelled. If this were a job, you would be fired and blacklisted. On here, you will be barred from editing.
    It's not an action you can ACCIDENTALLY perform. Plagiarism is something you must willfully commit with intent to deceive.
    Homages are fine, references to other works are too, but not straight theft.
  6. Please be mindful that our editors are of all ages, nationalities, and races. This in mind, please do not message people offensive and/or sexual material. Sexually explicit and/or offensive material is unwelcome on the main site, no matter how funny you may find it to be.
  7. Do not post screamer links, images, or videos. It's not funny to anyone, and it's old. If you have to resort to shocking people to scare them I suggest you go work on a career in Horror Films. I hear they are running out of ideas and resorting to JUMP-OUT-AND-SCARE-YOU tactics.

Other General Rules and Block GuidelinesEdit

  1. Trolling is not funny. It's annoying and trite, and frankly just makes the site seem unfriendly. Trolling will be met with an automatic and non appeal-able 3 month ban. You will not get a reaction other than that - no block message, no appeal, no warning. Your edits will be reverted and you will simply be blocked while the rest of us move on with our lives. Trolling after that ban will result in the same consequence - except the block time will be infinite the second time around.
  2. Ranting and harassing people will not get you anywhere. This will be met with a one week ban from the site.
  3. Multiple QS violations will result in a one day block from editing, doubling each time. There is no reason why you shouldn't have read the Quality Standards, nor is there any reason why you can't improve your writing skills here - we have a Writer's Workshop in the forums for criticism and improvement of skill.
