  • Inappropriate content.

These actions can result in an immediate permanent ban:

  • Vandalism.

How To Behave

  • Rule 1: Thou shalt not act like an asshole.
  • Arguments: You may dispute the actions and opinions of anyone, including staff, as long as you do it in a calm, mature, and civil way.
  • Comments: You can comment anywhere on the site, as long as you are respectful to other users. Do not troll or make personal attacks.
  • Voting: You may vote on any page (as long as you are a member) on the site for any reason you like, as long as your reasoning is based solely on the content of the page.
    • Upvoting your own page: You can upvote or even downvote your page as you like.
    • Brigading: Calling for group downvoting (or group upvoting) of an article is strictly against the rules. A brigade replaces voting on quality with voting as part of a bandwagon. Being part of a downvote brigade may also lead to a ban.
      • Note: Not every call to check out an article by someone who dislikes it is brigading. Context and intent will determine whether or not an incident is considered brigading. Rule of thumb: Don't try to push a group of people to vote the same as you.
  • Editing:
    • Responding to edits of your pages: You may alter the text of your own pages at will. However, please do not remove technical changes to your articles, such as an added rating module or a corrected page name.
    • Editing others' articles: You may correct grammar, spelling, or formatting errors on other peoples' articles. Please put a summary of changes in the 'Short description of changes' box. Any further edits require permission from the original author, the current curator, or the Rewrite team. Any unauthorized edits may be viewed as vandalism and subject to disciplinary action will result in a ban.
    • Updating tags: Don't add or change tags unless you know what you're doing. If you have any questions about implementing new tags, please contact a member of the Technical Team. If you have any questions about the tagging process in general, please contact a member of MAST. Do not remove Staff Process tags from any article (in-rewrite, in-deletion, _cc, or _image).
