FANDOM


This page will explain what notices, warnings and blocks are, and why they are given. Please read everything contained to fully understand their meanings.

Normal users are prohibited from issuing penalties to other users. If a user other than an administrator or moderator places a notice, warning or block message on your message wall, please remove it and contact the local staff.

NoticesEdit

A notice is when an administrator or moderator places the following template on your message wall / talk page: {{User notice|<Reason>}}

You are given a notice when you have done something that is not considered acceptable behavior, but is not disruptive enough to yield a warning.

When you receive a notice, please read it until you understand it. Afterwards, you are free to remove it from your message wall. Notices will expire after 7 days.

WarningsEdit

A warning is when an administrator or content moderator places the following template on your message wall / talk page: {{User warning|<Reason>}}

You are given a warning when you have done something that does not merit an immediate block, but is still disruptive enough to merit a warning.

When you receive a warning, please read it until you understand it. Afterwards, you are free to remove it from your message wall. Warnings will expire after 14 days.

BlocksEdit

Main article: Help:Blocking

A block is issued when you have done something in high disregard of the policies set. This can include, but is not limited to, gross harassment of another user(s), discrimination of any type, spamming the wiki with useless gibberish or advertising, and repetitive failures to follow other guidelines set.

Only administrators may issue blocks to users. Once issued, the blocking administrator will place the following template on your message wall / talk page: {{User block|<Reason>|<Length of Time>}}

Once blocked, several things may happen:

  • You will be prohibited from making edits to any part of the wiki.
  • You may be prohibited from making edits to your local userpage and message wall.
  • You may be prohibited from creating a new account on this wiki.
  • You're IP address, and subsequent IP addresses may be blocked.

Blocks are usually temporary, and your block length will be displayed in the block message on your message wall.

When you are issued a block, please read it until you understand it. Afterwards, you are free to remove it from your message wall, if possible. Blocks will expire upon admin discretion.

AccumulationEdit

Users who receive their first penalty will usually get a notice, unless severe enough to merit a warning. If a user that already has a notice active receives another penalty, they will be bumped up to a warning instead of getting a second notice.

Getting bumped up to a warning will reset the expiration date for the penalty. This means the date you received the first penalty is disregarded.

Getting a penalty while a warning is still active will yield a block. Block times will be based on how much time is remaining on the currently active penalty, and the severity of the action that resulted in the block. However, administrators will use discretion when determining block times.

Keep in mind, having a history of penalties may ultimately lead you to being permanently blocked without warning.

Active PenaltiesEdit

As mentioned above, penalties will expire after a period of time. Notices will expire 7 days after it is issued, warnings will expire after 14 days, and blocks will expire upon administrator discretion.

DisputesEdit

If you have an issue with a notice or warning you received, or want to discuss it, please click on the name of the user who posted it (normally the admin or moderator) and start a discussion on their message wall. Otherwise, you can simply reply to the penalty on your own message wall.

If you want to dispute a block, then you must go to the local staff page and contact the blocking admin through their Community Central message wall. Please tell them exactly what you see on your block message!

It is advised to remain calm and respectful when making a dispute. Otherwise, it will be ignored. Try to explain your actions as best you can, be honest, and passionate about your case.

Administrators and moderators have the choice to reduce - or completely remove - your penalty or block based on your dispute, but this is not a guarantee.
