- Keep in mind that these policies are ultimately guidelines. If it's found that a policy restricts something that the reason the policy was created didn't intend to restrict, then the policy should be changed.
This is the policy on blocking (also known as "banning").
- Blocking: Blocking is the method by which sysops prevent damage to the wiki by preventing the blocked user from editing. On this wiki, blocking is also used as a consequence for breaking one of the various policies.
- Auto Block: Also known as an instant block, or an insta-ban. Reserved for the most extreme cases, it is a block that takes place immediately, without a warning. These are used as a last resort, and only to prevent terrible damage to the wiki.
- Permanent Block: Also known as a perma-ban. Like the auto block, this is a last case scenario tool. It can be used to block the use permanently, or indefinitely from the wiki.
The following are reasons to preform a block on a user;
- Persistently making personal attacks.
- Persistent vandalism.
- Persistent gross incivility.
- Persistent harassment.
- Persistent spamming.
- Edit warring or revert warring.
- Breaching the multiple users policy.
- Persistently violating other policies or guidelines.
- Accounts with inappropriate usernames.
- Some policies are more strict than others, and thus, have more harsh blocking measurements. This means that the number of warnings, and the severity of the block, differs from policy to policy.
