FANDOM


The rules of itemlog wiki are here.

Main Rules

  • You must be at least 13 years old. If you say you are under 13 or heard about it on another wiki, you will be blocked until your 13th birthday. This is not our rule; we have to have this rule according to Wikia and the United States's Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
  • Never ever reveal your own personal information, especially the following: Your address, phone number, password, or credit card number. We never ask for these, and we do not want you telling us these. These are for your own personal safety.
  • Don't link/upload/suggest versions of Plants vs. Zombies or other games to people. This is Pirating, an illegal action in which will result in a block on this wiki, along with probably a global block if needed.
  • No cussing or profanity of all sorts so use * for censoring. However, some swear words are not swear words worldwide so you can say them as long as you don't use them purposely to annoy/offend a user who it is a swear word to. If you use the worldwide swearing you get a block without a warning. One week for minor, one month for medium, three months for major and six months for racist cusses.
  • No spamming or vandalism. This includes spamming minor edits to get badges; please only make two or three edits in a row per page.
  • Articles are not a place to put your opinion. Keep it on your userpage, your Blogs, or in Forum threads. 
  • Don't impersonate people by creating an account or renaming an existing account to something similar, then act like them. Roleplay (acting like a plant, zombie, or other NPC) is excluded.
  • Please use U.S. standard English (tyres --> tires) on articles, discussions, and in polls left on Itemlog Wiki:Polls
  • No reverting good edits without a good reason.
  • No offensive or inappropriate content (include harassment, racism, sexism, and bigotry).
  • Two accounts are not allowed. It is an exception if you forgot your password on an account. A bad name is not a reason to have two accounts, as Rename Account will allow you to change your username without the need to create a second account.
  • No advertising.
  • No backseat moderating or mini-modding. That means you must not tell someone to stop doing something that breaks the rules. Just report them to admins, b-crats, chat mods, rollbacks, VSTF members and Wikia Staff. If you backseat moderate, you get a two week block after seven warnings.
  • Please, do not leave links to the same page, or redirects leading to the same page. This won't get you blocked immediately, but they are annoying.
  • Keep editing to your userpage at a minimum. Mainspace edits are more important.
  • Do not create duplicate pages.
  • Don't make pages in the Plants vs. Zombies Wiki namespace without permission from the administrators.
  • You may make templates for your userpage, but ask a staff member before making a template for further use in the wiki. If the template was not OK'd, you can just copy the source onto your userpage.
  • No abusive or inappropriate usernames; these will result in a one week block after a warning is given to change it.

Article rules

See Itemlog Wiki:Article Rules.

Talk pages

  • On talk pages, always sign your comments.
  • Do not leave messages on talk page archives.
  • Do not remove messages on other users' Talk pages.
  • Inappropriate talk page behavior should be reported to admins rather than removed.

Discussions

  • Only autoconfirmed users joined this wiki active for at least one week can participate in votes about Wiki maintenance or management. Vacation causes can be ignored.
    • Anyone can vote in votes not related to these, such as conclusions about the best item.
    • Your vote is not a right; it is a privilege. If you try to vote multiple times, ignore voting rules, or are blocked for a contribution-based offense, you will lose the ability to vote for one week.
  • Any user in which can vote can create a discussion about minor Wiki management, such as about whether or not a certian page should exist. Major changes, such as changing the Wiki theme or policies, can only be done by active Admins.
  • Discussions are closed automatically after three days without a vote.
  • Discussions can be restarted after one month. This is to be used exclusively for disputed or tied results.
  • Don't do any actions related to the discussion content before discussion ends.
  • If the reason of the vote is ridiculous, for example, against to somebody, the vote will be counted as invalid.

Forums

  • All talk page and general rules apply on the forums, with the exception of signing posts.
  • Do not spam on the forums.
  • No fighting in the forums.
