Attacking the Wiki

5. Attacking the Wiki

5a. Do not vandalize the wiki.

5a.a. Vandalism of the wiki includes:
  • Altering the pages of the wiki with nonsense or irrelevant text.
  • Deleting text or media off pages to “troll” us.
  • Adding nonsense or irrelevant media to pages.
  • Creating bogus, insulting, or inflammatory pages.
  • Bloating pages by spamming unnecessarily large images or embedded video files.
  • Deleting the code of pages through the source editor to “damage” the page.
  • Destroying templates by editing the source. Templates are often universal, and a change to a template will change all instances of that template.
  • Griefing with HTML - creating a page that deliberately exceeds the borders, plays audio, contains misleading links, or otherwise inhibits access to the rest of the wiki.
  • Leading users to installing of malicious software or accessing “dox” sites including but not limited to viruses, keyloggers, IP loggers, malware, ransomware, and ANY level of pornography or graphic/shock material.
  • Filing false/troll reports on users of this wiki or its associated discord.
  • Organising two or more people for coordinated vandalism.
  • Posting excessive blogs with no content
5a.b. If the wiki is being vandalized, you are highly encouraged to report it to an administrator.
  • You are allowed to mitigate the damage to the best of your ability, but you are still required to report it to staff. Any help in situations like this is appreciated.
  • Wiki vandals are handled on a case-by-case basis, many of which will involve skipping disciplinary escalation and blocking.
  • Vandalism automatically implies bad faith. Acts of vandalism, with or without knowledge of the rules, grants the administration the ability to apply disproportionate punishment toward the vandal.

5b. Consequences for Vandalism

  • Vandalism from Unregistered users who edit via IP will receive an indefinite ban
  • Registered users whose first edit(s) are vandalistic will receive either an indefinite ban or a 1-12 month ban depending on the nature of the edit(s)
  • Registered users who makes vandalistic edit(s) and who have been on the wiki for a period of time (eg. 1-2 months) will receive a warning for it. However, this can also depend on the nature of the edit(s). In an extreme case of vandalism (eg. removing a page's entire contents) the vandal will receive a ban which may/may not be indefinite.
