Welcome to the Stepford County Railway Wiki. Please remember this is an editable wiki, which means that anyone who has had a wiki account for a few days can edit the information. This wiki is not run by the Directors, although we do have some staff members of SCR working with us, they are not here on official business.

We do try to keep information as accurate as possible, if you find any false information, feel free to edit it or tell a staff member.

Rules

The following is a full list of wiki rules divided into three different sections. These rules apply to the wiki only, and apply to all users.

These rules apply everywhere on the wiki, including the discussions, comment sections of pages, and editing. If you see someone breaking these rules, please inform one of our staff members.

Minor offences
Users who commit one of the actions listed below commit a minor offence and will receive a warning.
Action Information Associated policy
Not speaking English Our staff may be unable to moderate other languages, so we ask that you stick to speaking English. None
Being disrespectful
Not following staff instructions When staff tell you to stop, stop. If you disagree with a staff member, please let them know instead of continuing.
Spamming
Advertising
Swearing Even if not targeted at others, we only allow a minor amount of swearing. Acronyms are allowed, as well as the words 'damn' and 'hell'.
Posting unconfirmed information Please note that this rule is not valid if there is no doubt that it is correct (for example: a sneak peek posted with a station name or a signal name clearly being visible) or it is common knowledge (for example: Stepford Connect runs regional services).
Not editing according to the Manual of Style This rule includes, but is not limited to:
  • Not using British English when editing
  • Not using grammar when editing
  • Not maintaining a neutral and objective voice

For a full list of regulations, please check the Manual of Style.
