Please observe these rules always. If you notice vandalism, revert it. Don't wait for the admins to enforce it.

Read all the rules pages before editing, just reading one doesn't cut it.

General Ruleset

  • Do not vandalize articles. Doing so will almost always result in a block.
  • Do not ask to become an admin on the wiki. There is a [Project:Administrators|certain process]] by which this wiki picks its admins.
  • Do not create offensive articles, offensive or pornographic images, insert vulgar language, or make racial slurs.
  • Do not create "place holder articles". If you must come back to complete an unfinished article, put the {{Stub}} template on it.
  • Respect neutrality and do not jump into another user's dispute. If it doesn't concern you, do not get involved.
  • Do not advertise other sites on this wiki (includes posting outside links), and do not post spam.

Wikia Ruleset

Wikia has its own rules that are automatically on each wiki. We observe most of them here as well. They are as follows;

  1. Edit and create pages! It's a wiki, that's what it's for! But, if you make an edit that is not in good faith (i.e. Trolling edit), you may face a block.
  2. Be civil. If you are not civil, you will receive one warning. After that, you will be blocked for one week due to inappropriate behaviour.
  3. Obey all rules. If you do not you will face the consequences of the admins.
  4. Assume good faith; in other words, try to consider the person on the other end of the discussion is a thinking, rational being, who is trying to positively contribute to the project — unless, and only unless, you have firm, solid, and objective proof to the contrary. Merely disagreeing with you is no such proof. That goes for sysops as well.
  5. Particularly, don't revert good faith edits. Reverting is a little too powerful sometimes. Don't succumb to the temptation, unless you're reverting very obvious vandalism (like "LALALALAL*&*@#@THIS_SUX0RZ", or someone changing "1+2=3" to "1+2=17"). If you really can't stand something, revert once, with an edit summary something like "(rv) I disagree strongly, I'll explain why in talk." and immediately take it to talk.
  6. No personal attacks! Don't write that user such and so is an idiot, or insult him/her (even if (s)he is an idiot). Instead, explain what they did wrong, why it is wrong, and how to fix it. If possible, fix it yourself (but see above). If you fail to treat them with respect, you will be administered a one week ban. If you continue, you will recieve an automatic permaban for harassment.
  7. Sign your posts on talk pages using ~~~~ which gets replaced by your username and timestamp when you hit submit. But don't sign on mainspace articles.

User Equality

Equality on a wiki is the idea that all users are equal despite any special circumstances. While the Rules of Survival Wiki recognizes and accepts the fact that certain individuals do have special needs, are of younger and differing ages, and vary in the quality of writing skills, these individuals cannot and will not be considered exempt from the standards of conduct and the policies that all members of this wiki are required to abide by. To that end, no physical or mental condition, age, or difference in writing skills will be considered cause to suspend the enforcement of any Rules of Survival Wiki policy or guideline.

Consequences

Violations of this policy are punishable. The following method should be followed for carrying out these consequences;

  • First offense: Warning
  • Second offense: Second warning
  • Third offense: 1 week block
  • Fourth offense: 1 month block
  • Fifth offense: Permanent block
