The Selena Gomez Wiki site policies are expected to be followed. Not reading them is no excuse for breaking them.
|This text uses Creative Commons Licensed content from Sam and Cat Wiki and California Dreamin' Wiki.|
If a user does something that is considered a breach of the conduct expected on this wiki, but is not specifically outlined in the policies, an administrator may reserve the right to act upon common sense, and warn the user about their breach of conduct.
- Spam, post external links excessively, or use excessive uppercase
- Harass other users for any reason, including discrimination based on race, gender, nationality, religion, or orientation
- Constantly dispute or counter productively edit-war
- Bash or threaten a user.
- Plagiarize or post information without a source
- Post mature content, including profanity and sexually explicit content.
- Vandalize, make unconstructive edits, or edit solely for the purpose of getting badges
- Join the wiki without being 13 or older, not following a standard of writing expected from a young adult (see Children's Online Privacy Protection Act)
- Advertise for one's business.
- Badge game, meaning make unconstructive edits for badges.
- Edit other user pages besides your own (unless the user gives you permission to)
- Removing content from pages (except when you know that it is false). That is vandalism.
- Making unneeded pages that are of just news reffering to Selena Gomez or episodes of shows she starred in.
- Adding excessive categories that do not belong in an article (for example, if you are editing the Filmography page, please do not add the category Songs)
Breaking any of the rules above may lead to consequences such as a block.
If a user breaks a rule, the user will not be blocked immediately. The user will receive a warning first. These explain how the warnings are given.
- If you break a rule once, a warning will be given.
- If you break a rule again, a warning will again be given.
- If you break the rule thrice, the user will be blocked.
- Please note if you are an underage user you will be blocked immediately without warning.
Repeating one kind of offense after a ban expires will lead to the next ban being raised to the next level.
Week long bans
- Using warning templates without being an admin, chat mod, or rollback.
- Making edits that only have the purpose to get awards. This includes the adding of categories. Seven categories for one page usually is enough.
- Repeatedly editing another user's user page without being asked to (Unless you're fixing minor errors).
- Making unneeded pages of Selena Gomez.
One month bans
- Removing large amounts of content from pages that don't need content removed.
- Harassment. This includes:
- Insulting someone's race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or any other part of their person.
- Constantly picking fights with one specific person. If it is not clear WHO starts the fights, both will be blocked.
- Constantly butting in on discussions despite repeatedly being asked to stay out of discussions of a similar style.
- Repeatedly inserting information without a source. Since Wikipedia is just a giant wiki, it is NOT accepted as reliable unless it references a link to a reliable, valid source.
- Bashing any song, person, or album.
Three month bans
- Replacing content on pages with insulting phrases
Six month bans
- Any continuous repeat offense from the three-month bans as listed will result in a six-month ban
- If found guilty from lying about a severe health issue and/or death. The said user will be blocked for up to six months and the blogs, comments and such will be deleted immediately.
- Inserting sexually explicit images or text, or links to porn.
- Plagiarism of another user's blogs.
- Spamming links to external websites (unless they are links to related fansites).
- Underage user.
