The Emperor is NOT amused by thy behaviour!

Here at the Warhammer 40k Wiki, when a user violates one of our established Rules, the Administrators or Moderators often will give out a written warning. But for those who continuously flaunt the rules, or refuse to abide by the established conduct and etiquette, that is expected by all users of this wiki, then sometimes the wiki's Admin staff is forced to take a harsher approach to such violations. 

All wikis are expected to conform to a certain level of civility in writing articles and Talk Page posts. The use of excessive cursing or lasciviousness is strictly prohibited. Declarations of hate that are said pejoratively and without humour, like "I hate you," are also strictly prohibited, and violates this wiki's Harassment/Intimidating Behavior Policy.

Minor Offenses

Minor offenses include slight instances of uncivilised behaviour, including:

  • Insults
  • Trolling
  • Flaming
  • Ignoring Others
  • Publicly declaring your hate for someone or insulting their contributions

More specific instances of this type of offense includes the breaking of this wiki's established Rules, disregarding warnings from the Administrators or Moderators, repeated violations of the wiki's rules, and other acts of disrespect and general offensive behavior.

Bans are as follows:

  1. First Offense - Written warning. Depending on the action, a six hour to one day ban.
  2. Second Offense - Last Warning. Depending on the action and previous ban, a 1-3 day ban.
  3. Third Offense - Official Ban. Depending on action and previous ban, 4 days to a week.
  4. Fourth Offense - Official Ban. Depending on action and previous ban, 2 weeks to 1 month. User will lose their privileges, whether they be Rollback or Adminship.
  5. Fifth Offense - Last warning. Depending on action and previous ban, 3 months to 1 year.
  6. Sixth Offense - Official ban. Website position and previous ban irrelevant. Permanent ban.

Moderate Offenses

These include instances of multiple acts of rule-breaking in a relatively short period of time. This includes the following:

  • Rapid fire acts of rulebreaking (Repeated offenses of multiple rule breaking at a time)
  • Directly insulting users or their contributions through highly offensive or derogatory terms of jargon. For example: A specific instance would be if an offender would tell a user that their works are terrible, and insulting them.
  • Additionally, breaking higher guidelines and rules come under this heading, such as spamming, vandalism and otherwise causing drama on the wiki.

Bans are as follows:

  1. First Offense - Warning. Depending on action, 3 days to 1 week.
  2. Second Offense - Official ban. Depending on action and previous ban, 2 weeks to 1 month.
  3. Third Offense - Last warning. Depending on action and previous ban, 4 months to 1 year. User will lose their privileges, whether they be rollback or adminship.
  4. Fourth Offense - Official ban. Website position and previous ban irrelevant. Permanent ban.

Major Offenses

These include fairly large amounts of rules being broken at one time. This includes:

  • Posting of sexually explicit text in your content. *Sending fairly offensive messages to other users (via a user's Talk Page or online Chat). This includes disparaging remarks or insulting their personal lives (Such as making fun of deceased relatives or friend).

Administrators must use their best judgement to decide on whether the user involved has made a Major Offense or an Unforgivable Offense.

Ban works as follows:

  1. First Offense - Official ban. 3-6 months.
  2. Second Offense - Last warning. Depending on action and previous ban, 6 months to 1 year. User will lose their site privileges, whether they be rollback or adminship.
  3. Third Offense - Official ban. Website position and previous ban irrelevant. Permanent ban.

Unforgivable Offenses

Unfortunately, there are rare times when a user commits very egregious violations or offenses that are simply unforgivable and will result in an immediate permanent ban. This includes the following:

  • Large scale rule breaking
  • Instances of vandalism
  • Spamming
  • Harassment at the highest levels
  • Posting sexually explicit material
  • Posting content that breaks the law (posting Child Porn)

Ban works as follows:

  1. First Offense - Permanent ban. All else is irrelevant. User will lose all privileges, whether they be rollback or adminship.

Execution of the Permanent Ban

Due to legitimate concerns about overzealous use of the permanent ban, editors will receive a warning from an Administrator or Moderator before any permanent ban is enacted against them in cases other than vandalism, spamming, or harassment. This warning will explain what they have done wrong, and will provide an explanation of how they can avoid a similar error in the future. Failure to comply in good faith will result in a permanent ban.
