  • Provide a screen shot of the offence*.
  • If there is a vote on what the punishment of the offender shall be, participate in the vote.
  • If you are unable to report the offence because you are busy or have to leave, ask a trusted user to do it for you.
  • Report as soon as possible.
  • Report by starting a thread under Transgression Reports in the Forum Database or leave a message on a Server Administrator or Server Helper's talk page so that they may view it and highlight it if necessary.
    • If you are able to highlight the thread without the need of a Server Administrator or Server Helper, you may do so.

*This is optional and not required.

Punishments for Breaking the Rules

The following are the consequences for breaking the wiki's rules:

Warning

This will be given first to notify the user that they are offending the rules. When a user receives a warning, they should stop all offensive activity and make careful choices as a warning can be turned into a block. Server Administrators and Server Helpers are the only ones who can give warnings, but a normal user can report to a Server Administrator or Server Helper to administer a warning to the reported user.

Block

After receiving a warning, if the warned user continues to break the rules, a Server Administrator or Server Helper can block them. When blocking a Server Administrator and Server Helper must provide the reason for the block and can use their own judgement for the duration of the block, or they can start a vote to determine the block's length.

Ban

Should a user who has been blocked and warned on numerous occasions continue to break the rules, a Server Administrator or Server Helper can ban them form the wiki. A ban requires the Server Administrator or Server Helper to start a vote.
