Revision as of 01:22, July 8, 2020

Here are the guidelines of this wiki. All users who edit the site must follow this regulations, otherwise they will be penalized with some of the sanctions described here. The following regulations may change over time as administrators may think necessary. If you have recently joined, it is recommended that you review these rules at least once.

General

  1. Threatening, bullying, or any form of harassment towards another is not tolerated. Doing so will result in a block and a report to FANDOM Staff if necessary. Heckling someone for liking the show or being above the target demographic is also considered harassment.
  2. Vandalism and spam are always banned from the wiki.
  3. Profanity is not allowed on this wiki.
    1. Mild uses are acceptable (e.g. hell, damn, crap, idiot), but others, however are not.
    2. Racial slurs (e.g. the N-word) are also highly prohibited. If we catch you using these words on the wiki, you will be permanently banned. NO EXCEPTIONS!
  4. Be pleasant to other users; they give up spare time to edit here.
  5. Do not impersonate other users by using multiple accounts. This is known as sock puppetry, and is a serious offense. Users that are caught doing this will have all of their accounts blocked indefinitely. However, multiple accounts are allowed as long as they are not used for deceit, and should clearly state which user originally owns them.
  6. In accordance to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and FANDOM's guidelines, you must be 13 or older to join the wiki. If you say that you are under 13 or another user has heard about it on another wiki, you will be reported to FANDOM Staff, and your account will be disabled, or be blocked until your 13. Any user who is underage or claims to be underage will not be blocked or banned since all underage users will be dealt with by FANDOM Staff, not by the administrators.
  7. Due to vandalism and immaturity from anonymous IP users in the past, as well as anonymous users tending to be underage, you must be logged in to an official FANDOM account to edit, comment, or send messages on this wiki. Starting an account is easy and can be helpful with keeping track of your edits, and it is also more secure.
  8. Posting unofficial links to streams, buffers, or downloads of any of the episodes (i.e. KissCartoon, Dailymotion, Dotsub, The Pirate Bay, etc.) is a violation of FANDOM's Terms of Use, and is a serious offense. Repeated offenses will lead to a block.
  9. Please do not revert/undo an administrator's edit without a valid reason.
  10. Do not edit just for the sake of editing. Perfecting the structure of sentences and paragraphs and correcting spelling and punctuation errors is one thing, but do not edit pages just to change one word into a another word which means the same thing, however many times it is used on that page.
  11. Never reveal any personal details about yourself or personal details of anyone else you are associated with, especially your/someone else’s address, phone number, password, or credit card number. We never ask for these, and we do not want you telling us these. These are for your own personal safety.
  12. All content must be objective and must remain in a neutral light. Do not use opinion words, unless you are giving a review, quoting a character, writing a transcript (only in the vocal part or if a written thing says an opinion word), or giving a written thing that has an opinion word in it.
  13. It's not allowed to talk about obscene or adult topics, by any means within this wiki, this includes to share links to that type of content.
  14. The use of sockpuppet accounts for evading a block is prohibited.
  15. Only administrators can edit the profile of another user, and only with justified reasons that will be reflected in the edition summary.
  16. Sharing personal information by any means (complete addresses, identification numbers, etc.) is not allowed.
  17. If an administrator tells you to stop doing something, please stop doing it.
  18. Always use third person point of view in the articles (i.e. "the viewer" or "one" instead of "I", "me", "we", "you", or the like.).
  19. Avoid using contractions (for example, use "does not" instead of "doesn't"). These words are used in informal contexts; we strive to make these articles academic and formal.
  20. Do not abuse edits for the sole purpose of getting achievement badges. Badges are meant to be a reward for legitimate work.
  21. Do not create placeholders. This includes adding a header or creating an article with "coming soon" or "TBA", creating blank articles, or articles with one (obvious) sentence of information.
  22. Do not abuse edits for the sole purpose of getting achievement badges. Badges are meant to be a reward for legitimate work.
  23. Please refrain from mentioning subjects relating to politics or any kind of religion.
  24. Please do not put extremely personal things about your life in posts such as depression, deaths, or anything else that could embarrass or cause issues for you in the longrun.
  25. Do not add useless/unnecessary categories. Categories like these do no such thing:
    1. "Antagonists" and "Protagonists" -- there are no permanent antagonists in this series.
    2. "Crying", "(Color) characters" -- adding these category accomplishes nothing.
  26. It is okay for important pages (such as this one) to be protected, or for pages to be temporarily protected if there is an edit war or a sudden burst of vandalism, but most of the wiki content needs to remain open to editing by all users.
  27. Do not start edit wars or talk about edit warring.
  28. Posing as a user of a higher position than you is forbidden.
  29. An article stub is an article less than 1,000 bytes. Any article that is defined as a stub but also is an article in which all information is complete, is no longer considered a stub, no matter the length.
  30. You cannot edit other people's profiles, unless it is yours.
  31. Avoid posting spoilers to new episodes without warning.
  32. A character must be named or play a significant role in order to receive an article.
  33. Do not duplicate pages that have already been created.
  34. Please do not use fan-generated airdates. Use accurate airdates provided by the TV airings, iTunes, Amazon Video, promos, news articles, or similar sources.
  35. New pages created must be of relevant content.
  36. It is not allowed to create pages of common stuff or places mentioned or seen, unless they have a relevant importance in the series.
  37. Spamming of comments on pages is not allowed.
  38. Page blanking is prohibited under all circumstances.

Grammar guide

  1. Use apostrophes in contractions.
  2. Remember to use punctuation. Run on sentences are displeasing to read; try to break such sentences down using punctuation. Use them properly, though - not just for the sake of breaking a sentence down. Also remember that when listing multiple things in a sentence, that each element should have a serial comma at the end.
  3. It's is the contraction of "it is" or "it has" and its is used for the possession of "it."
  4. Then is a transitional word and than is a comparison word.
  5. The word "okay" can be spelled out or abbreviated.
  6. The word "whoa" is commonly misspelled as "woah." The correct spelling must always be used.
  7. There are two forms of the word "your." "You're" is short for you are, and contains a comma as it is a conjunction. "Your" is used for a belonging, or anything else that is not an abbreviation for you are.
  8. There are three forms of the word "there." "They're" is short for they are, and is a conjunction. "Their" is used for a belonging to someone typically, and "there" is for anything else.
  9. There are two forms of the word "whose." "Who's" is a conjunction and stands for who is. Whose is used for anything else that would not make much sense to say "who is."
  10. Numbers one through ten can be in word form or number form, but use them wisely.
  11. The text in a page should not be too complex, yet not so simple that some meaning is lost.

Commenting and Message Walls

  1. Do not leave insulting messages on users' walls. If you have a dispute or another discussion, please keep it appropriate and civil.
  2. Do not make message wall posts lengthy. Discussions like these belong to chat or fourms.
  3. You should not create new posts on your own Message Wall unless necessary (e.g. announcing inactivity, testing templates, signatures or bugs).
  4. Message walls are reserved for interaction between two members only. Unless you absolutely need to, please do not interrupt a conversation.
  5. Stay on topic. Sometimes you stray and go off topic, and that's fine, but do not deliberately start talking about your love for Loretta Callisto in Miles Callisto's comment section for instance.
  6. Do not incite drama. This includes grief slinging and inferiority complex.
  7. Do not roleplay. Roleplaying is when one pretends to be a fictional character, whether he or she is from the show, another series, or made up.
  8. Commenting in mass is considered spam. (eg. making 20 comments in less than 10 minutes)

Administration

  1. Have administrative qualities, contribute regulary every day, and have at least 500 edits on this wiki to become an administrator. You may ask for administrator rights, but please do not beg. If you just show that you are responsible and trustworthy enough, chances are, you'll eventually have the position.
  2. Only delete pages that are unnecessary, spam, or unrelated to the wiki.
  3. Do not block users directly, give them a warning first depending in the situation they have caused. You can block them directly, if the user has caused a big problem.
  4. Demote admins if they have abused their power or are inactive.
  5. Administrators should always include a relevant block reason in the logs when blocking a user. Never include insulting or spiteful comments in the block reason, unless quoting from the blocked user. (i.e. calling a blocked user an insulting name.)
  6. Blocking users for no valid reason is forbidden.
  7. When a user may have broken a rule for the first time, they should always be given a second chance.
  8. Do not block other admins unless it is for an emergency reason, such as an account hack. Bureaucrats have the ability to unblock themselves in the unlikely event of a "hostile takeover" attempt by an admin. Admins who attempt this will immediately have their powers revoked and will be blocked from the wiki permanently.
  9. Keep in mind that administrators may rule out different lengths in blocks depending on how they think is appropriate. (Usually infinite)

Photos and Videos

  1. All images must relate to Mission Force One/Miles from Tomorrowland in some way.
  2. Avoid using pictures of a screen (e.g. TV, computer) taken from a camera, as these photos usually tend to be of bad quality. The picture will be deleted without warning and will be reuploaded in better quality.
    1. This happens sometimes.
  3. When you add images to an article, be sure they are of high quality (e.g., not pixelated). The .png format is preferred, as it has the highest quality, but .jpg is also acceptable.
  4. For your safety and privacy, we ask that you please do not upload a picture of yourself to the wiki. If you've already done this in the past and want it removed, please do not hesitate to ask one of our admins to delete it.
    1. Note: This guideline only relates to uploading pictures of yourself here. You are not violating our guidelines if you already had a preexisting picture of yourself as your overall profile picture.
  5. Do not add a "width" to any gallery.
  6. Do not upload YouTube Poops, GoAnimate videos, or other fan-made videos.
  7. Do not upload any Mission Force One fan art, unless it is for your userpage.
  8. Do not upload very small images.
  9. Images that barely feature a given character are not acceptable in character galleries.
  10. Name all images properly. Do not name an image "jehdvbhegd*YWbnsbb.jpg", "Snapshot0004.png", "hqdefault.jpg", "Capture 005.PNG" or simliar. Such filenames like these will be renamed. Name your image something like this "Miles_Callisto.png" or similar. If you are the administrator or a content moderator and came up with a proper filename of the subject, feel free to rename them, otherwise, ask an administrator to do it for you.
  11. Each image in a given gallery must be unique, i.e. no similar images with slight differences.

Sanctions

As displayed on the pages above, our wiki has certain rules and guidelines. If a user goes against these (deliberately or accidentally), this is usually the order of consequence:

  1. If you break any minor rules (like putting off-topic, unnecessary or irrelevant content and spam in page comments) you will receive a warning on your message wall, if you ignore the warning you will be blocked for a week.
    1. The first rule is an exception; one of our admins will just tell you to have someone over 13, such as parent, older sibling, or anyone you trust, make their own account and they must supervise you any time you're on the Wikia.
  2. The second time, you will be blocked for 2 weeks from this Wiki.
  3. The third time, you will be banned permanently. You will be permitted to visit as much as you like and vote on the polls, but you will be forbidden from contributing.
  4. If you are under the age of 13 you will be permanently blocked due to FANDOM regulations.
  5. If you behave aggressively towards any user and even administrators, you will be warned or blocked (for several weeks or even months) depending on the situation.
  6. If you post something in another language on an article, one of admins will remove all edits regarding the language and ask you to not to do that again. The language rule is not as heavily enforced as other rules.
  7. Admins have the right to ban permanently the first time depending on the severity of the situation.
  8. In case of breaking a major rule (like adding non-canonical content and vandalizing pages) you will be permanently blocked.
  9. Using a sockpuppet account will result in permanent blocking. In case of a repeat offense, a report will be made to the FANDOM staff for a global block.

Chat Consequences

If you fail to follow these rules, the following may happen based on the severity of the situation:

  1. You will receive a warning from one of our chat moderators.
  2. 2nd time, you will be kicked from the chat by a moderator. You can come back after you're kicked if you promise to not do what you did again.
  3. The third time, you will be kicked again and will receive a final warning.
  4. If you persist on not being a "good pup" after all your warnings, you will be permanently banned from the chat, and you may be blocked from the Wiki all together depending on the #situation.
  5. If a moderator detects that you're breaking rules on purpose, warnings will be forsaken and a ban will be made immediately.

Reporting a User

  1. If you see something's not right about a user, or if someone's vandalizing pages, please report this to the wiki admins. They'll take care of it from there.

Conclusion

If you follow the rules and don't cause any trouble, you won't have to worry about any consequences. Have a fun time on the wiki and our chat, and blast off with Miles on an out-of-this-world adventure!
