Rules

Fandom’s Terms of Use

All members must comply with Fandom’s Terms of Use, additionally to our local policies. As these rules apply to all wikis on Fandom, a breach of these rules may result in a global (platform-wide) block. Notable rules mentioned in the Terms of Use include:

  • Age restrictions → All users must be 13 or older. In California and the EEA (excluding the UK), the minimum age is 16.
  • Agreeing to not abuse, harass, threaten and/or intimidate other Fandom users.
  • Not posting any written, visual, or symbolic content that is obscene, pornographic, abusive, offensive, profane or otherwise violating any law or right of any third party. It may also not encourage criminal conduct, contain slurs/hate speech, dog whistles and/or incitement of violence.

Wiki-specific rules

A full list of rules can be found on our Code of Conduct page. Policy-specific rules can also be found on the policy page of the topic.

Punishments

The SCR Wiki has three different severities for offenses: minor offenses, major offenses and severe offenses.

  • Minor offences are punished with a warning.
  • Major offences are punished using a temporary block.
  • Severe offences are punished through in(de)finite blocks.

We have a system of warnings. When a warning is issued to an account, it will expire after three months. Unlike warnings, blocks do not have a set time when they expire. The length of blocks depends on the block reason and can range from one week to infinite.

Users may also get blocked for reaching three non-expired, valid warnings. The length of these blocks depend on the amount of previous blocks. If an account gets blocked for having three active warnings with no previous blocks, the block will last for one week. With one previous block, a one-month block will be issued and with two or more previous blocks, an infinite block will be issued. Please note that for this rule, all previous blocks are considered except blocks for being underage.

Reporting staff

To report moderators, please contact an admin or bureaucrat. To report admins, please contact a bureaucrat. To report bureaucrats, please contact another bureaucrat to help. DO NOT bring it to the discussions, pages, comments, or anywhere else on the wiki.

Forgiveness

If a sufficient amount of time has passed between unacceptable edits, an Administrator or Bureaucrat may choose to block for a shorter duration, or just issue a warning. There is no hard set rule for dealing with this, administrators and above should use their best judgement or ask fellow staff.

Warnings also automatically expire after three months, as explained in the Punishments section above.

Users cannot be blocked, warned, or otherwise punished for rule violations that occurred more than 2 weeks ago, however they may be sent a reminder message to tell them that it isn't and why it isn't allowed.
