The X-Files wiki site policies are expected to be followed. Not reading them is no excuse for breaking them.

Do NOTEdit

  1. Spam, post external links excessively, or use excessive uppercase
  2. Harass other users for any reason, including discrimination based on race, gender, nationality, religion, or orientation
  3. Constantly dispute or counter-productively edit-war
  4. Bash or threaten a user
  5. Plagiarize or post information without a source
  6. Post mature content, sexually explicit content.
  7. Vandalize or make unconstructive edits
  8. 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)
  9. Advertise for one's business
  10. Badge game, meaning make unconstructive edits for badges
  11. Edit other user pages besides your own (unless the user gives permission)
  12. Remove content from pages (except when it is verifiably false, irrelevant to this wiki's topic of The X-Files, Millennium and The Lone Gunmen, or otherwise disruptive)
  13. Make pages that are of just news referring to X-Files or episodes of unrelated shows X-Files actors have starred in
  14. Add excessive categories that do not belong in an article

Breaking any of the rules above may lead to consequences such as a block.

WarningsEdit

If you break a rule, you will not be blocked immediately. You will receive a warning first. These explain how the warnings are given.

  1. If you break a rule once, a warning will be given.
  2. If you break a rule again, a warning will again be given.
  3. If you break the rule thrice, you will be blocked.
  • Please note if you are an underage user you will be blocked immediately without warning.

BansEdit

Repeating one kind of offense after a ban expires will lead to the next ban being raised to the next level.

Please note that you will receive a warning before being blocked.Edit

Week long bansEdit

  1. Using warning templates without being an admin.
  2. Profanity.
  3. Making edits that only have the purpose to get awards. This includes the adding of categories. Seven categories for one page usually is enough.
  4. Repeatedly editing another user's user page without being asked to (Unless you're fixing minor errors).

One month bansEdit

  1. Removing large amounts of content from pages that don't need content removed.
  2. Harassment. This includes:
    1. Insulting someone's race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or any other part of their person.
    2. Constantly picking fights with one specific person. If it is not clear WHO starts the fights, both will be blocked.
    3. Constantly butting in on discussions despite repeatedly being asked to stay out of discussions of a similar style.
  3. 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.
  4. Bashing any song, person, or album.

Three month bansEdit

  1. Replacing content on pages with insulting phrases

Six month bansEdit

  1. Any continuous repeat offense from the three-month bans as listed will result in a six-month ban
  2. 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.

Permanent bansEdit

  1. Inserting sexually explicit images or text, or links to porn.
  2. Plagiarism of another user's blogs.
  3. Spamming links to external websites (unless they are links to related fansites).
  4. Underage user.
