Policies for this wiki Words in Bold indicates it is an important message.

This is the official policies page for the Flipline Fanfiction Wikia. This page may grow over time as new problems increase, but it is hoped that everybody uses a good sense of morality when contributing to this site. Please be aware that any violation of the wiki's policies may result in a block.

Rules and regulations

Punishments against those who break the rules generally vary based on the severity of the action committed by the user and the past violations completed by the (suspected) user.

  • According to COPPA, users under the age of 13 years are not permitted to make edits to the wiki.
    • If a user's age is revealed to be below thirteen years, please report it to an administrator to handle the problem.
  • Perform civil behavior; insulting, threatening, harassing, purposefully offending, or disrespecting any user, are violations that are strictly prohibited.
  • When asked by a staff member to stop doing something disruptive, you are expected to stop.
  • Any and all users are required to show absolute respect to others at all times. No kind of insults or harassment will be condoned.

There can't be any...

  • Cyberbullying
    • Any user has the right to remove or request the removal of something that personally offends them, including comment, blog, discussion, and message wall posts.
  • Discussion of sexually explicit content.
  • Hate speech, including:
    • Race
    • Religion
    • Ethnic origin
    • Sexual orientation
    • Disability
    • Sex/gender
    • Racism
    • Any other form of discrimination
  • Spamming
  • Trolling
  • Promotion or advertising of any website having no relation to Flipline Studios.
  • Impersonation or fabrication of false information about other users.
  • Advertising with the intent of users paying or signing up for said content.
  • Advertising your wiki here if it is meant to instigate any wars, or revenge on other wikis. Failure to comply will result in a year long block.
  • Support or encouragement of vandalism or breaking the rules.
  • Sockpuppetry: Sockpuppetry is the act of using another account to evade a block, and is not permitted. If it becomes known that a user is sockpuppeting, their sockpuppet account will be blocked, and the block on their original account will be extended. Under no circumstances may a user create another account to make edits on this site, whether it is meant to cause problems or not (unless the alt's purpose is to become a bot)
  • Swearing: Swearing of any kind is against the rules. Censored is ok, but not partially censored. (for example if "flipline" is not allowed ******** is okay but flip**** is not)
  • Inappropriate Usernames: If you make an inappropriate username, such as ______ is a bad administrator it will result in an infinite block. Change your username at Special:UserRenameTool. If you make your new username more appropriate, your block will be removed.

Privacy and Safety

To ensure your safety, it is recommended that you do not post personal information about yourself, such as your school, home address, phone number, etc.

Anything on this website can be seen by anyone on the internet. So please consider this before expressing yourself to the community.

Blocking

Staff members reserve the right to block anyone who is being disruptive or harmful to this wiki.

In the event of a misunderstanding, the user is allowed to testify their block to an administrator, who will then discuss the situation with the other staff members to see if it was truly a misunderstanding. Proof should be provided to show that it was a misunderstanding. Failure to do so will make your claim ineffective, and your account may be blocked for an extended period for spreading false information.

  • If you are blocked and want to appeal it, please contact an administrator on their wall on Community Central. (But don't do that if the block is for a duration of one week or less.)

Block durations

Note: Depending on the severity of the violation(s), block durations will not always depend on the information provided below.

Bureaucrat/Admin

The length of the block is x1.5 for junior admins, x3 for admins, and x4 for bureaucrats if severe enough (after contacting FANDOM).

Underage users

If a user is revealed to be underage and their birthday is provided in their profile, then they are to be blocked until they reach thirteen years of age. If their birthday is not provided, they will be blocked until the year they reach thirteen. If their age nor the year they were born is not provided, the block duration will be decided by the blocking admin.
