Guidelines for Mods/Admins

Mods

  • Remain mature and professional.
    • Try to avoid getting into arguments, but if you do, try to at least remain respectful and polite.
    • Do not publicly insult anyone or be rude, even if they have been to you.
    • Try your best to remain polite at all times, a mod must be a role model for other wiki users.
    • Avoid picking favorites; even if your friend breaks a rule, you must treat them fairly and give them the proper punishment.
  • Do not abuse your moderator powers by breaking any of the actual Wiki Rules.
    • Minor swearing is allowed, but try to swear as little as possible, especially avoiding words that may be borderline to set a good standard for other users. By using profanity, you are not being the ideal role model you should be for other wiki users.
  • Please do not sacrifice your personal life for the wiki. Remember, it's just a game. If anything comes up in real life, it is okay to be inactive for a week or two. Try to contact Strayed if you must be inactive for a longer period of time.
  • Please remain friendly with the users, be polite, but do try to be friendly with other users. There have been too many instances on other forums where the mods are more like robots rather than actual people you can go to when you have a problem.

The following is a general course of action when encountering a rulebreaker.

  1. Root out the rule they're breaking. Make sure it's an ACTUAL rule.
  2. Warn the user in a calm and polite manner, and direct them to the rules if necessary
  3. Edit offending posts if possible, delete if not possible.
  4. If they continue to fool around, tell them you will not hesitate to report them to an admin for necessary banning.
  5. If they continue, report them to an admin as soon as possible.

Examples of rules where the above guidelines are appropriate:

  • Trolling, bigotry, baiting, harassment, etc.
  • Excessive spam, such as repeated posts that are not caused by lag and such.
  • Harassment of other users.
  • General rudeness.
  • Flame wars
  • Trolling
  • Malicious or inappropriate links
  • Self-advertising that does not have to do with the game
