The Policies of the Infinity Blade Wiki
 Chat Policies

1. No harrassment - We do not tolerate harrassment in any form (We do tend to enjoy some playful conversation time to time). However we will penalize you accordingly if you are caught blatantly harassing another user.

2. No swearing - We doubt underaged children will know how to navigate around a wiki, but the new generations can be surprising. So unless you have all of the chatees' consent, you cannot swear in chat.

  • Saying: Damn, Hell, Crap, Freak, or Frick acceptable as long as you are not speaking rudely towards another user on chat.

3. No caps/spam - Caps and spam fill the chat and prevent efficient communication between users. You will be reprimanded accordingly. Reprimands may differ according to the moderator or admin administering the castigation.

4. No Begging - If an Admin or Bureaucrat enters chat, you shouldn't pester them for a promotion. First of all, it decreases your chances of getting your prized promotion, and second, you should use the appropriate method found here.

Punishments

First, you will receive a warning. If you do not stop, you will be kicked. If you continue to disregard a mod and continue causing problems, a ban is likely to be given to your account.

  • Some moderators or admins may kick you as a form of warning. If they do so, they are required to leave you a message on your message wall: [[Message_Wall:<insert name here>]]. Their message will tell you what you did wrong, and if you join chat while they are still on, the moderator or admin may tell you why he or she kicked you.
 IRC Policies

For the most part, the IRC (Internet Relay Chat) rules are the same as chat, however, IRC is a more adult form of communication as it allows quick access to users from other parts of the internet that might not be interested in your well being.

1. No harrassment - We do not tolerate harrassment in any form (We do tend to enjoy some playful conversation time to time). However we will penalize you accordingly if you are caught blatantly harassing another user.

2. Swearing- Swearing is allowed as long as you DO NOT cuss out another user. We would however, encourage you to use colorful vocabulary that does not need to use swears or cusses to convey a point.

3. No caps/spam - Caps and spam fill the chat and prevent efficient communication between users. You will be reprimanded accordingly. Reprimands may differ according to the moderator or admin administering the castigation.

4. No Begging - If an Admin or Bureaucrat enters chat, you shouldn't pester them for a promotion. First of all, there is no chance of promotion at all on the IRC channel, unless of course more users start using it. The current users with rights are Arctic Blue who uses either his username, "Coba1t", "Frost_Era", or "Arcius" as his nick, Mugen Galath who uses either "Galath" or "divine_entity", and Slayingthehalcyon who uses either "Halcyonslayer", "Skulldruggery" or "Dark-Nightingale" as his nick.

Punishments

First, you will receive a warning. If you do not stop, you will be kicked. If you continue to disregard a mod and continue causing problems, a ban is likely to be given to your nickname.

  • Some moderators or admins may kick you as a form of warning. If they do so, they are required to leave you a message on your [[Message_Wall:<insert name here>|message wall]]. Their message will tell you what you did wrong, and if you join chat while they are still on, the moderator or admin may tell you why he or she kicked you.
 General Policies

The rules in this section apply to users that are editing with an account.

  1. Do not vandalize the wiki.
    • Depending on the severity of the vandalism you may be banned for up to two months
    • Users are to be warned one time before they are banned for vandalism.
  2. Do not spam: This rule is applied when: editing articles, leaving messages, and chatting.
    • If the spam leans towards extremely severe then you may be banned for up to a month.
    • Users are to be warned two times before a ban, however if the user spams a lot of pages then an immediate ban is okay.
  3. Do not exploit the badge system, it's there to record your editing achievements in a fun way.
  4. Do not harass other users or use the features of this wiki to target users for harassment-like purpose.
  5. Do not use vulgar words / curse words on articles, message walls, your user-page, or in chat.
  6. Do not upload any horror/inappropriate pictures/videos, doing so will result in a warning.
    • If the user continues to upload pictures after three warnings, then a ban for up to a month is valid punishment.
    • The length of the ban depends on the severity of the images/videos.
    • Pornographic images will result in an instant ban and a talk with Wikia Staff.
  7. Users with special rights must not abuse their powers.
    • Chatmods, Admins, and Bureaucrats may playfully kick you from chat, however they will not ban you, UNLESS you are breaking the rules.
  8. Do not create meaningless pages.
    • Unless a new game comes out, pretty much all of the pages that need to be made have already been made.
  9. Do not pester any admins/bureaucrats to give you a promotion.
    • If we, the rights users, feel that you are worthy of a promotion, we will talk to you about it.
    • Or if you feel that we haven't recognized you, you can apply for chat mod or rollback here. But you will definitely have to wait for the rights users to talk about new admins and bureaucrats.
  10. Do not to type in full caps. A few small outbursts in chat are allowed, but they are not to be full lines of text.
    • Overuse of caps may result in a short chat ban.
  11. The wiki uses American English, so do not change American English to British English.
  12. You must be at least 12 years old to own an account. If you are not of said age, do not make one. Doing so will result in an instant block and a talk with Wikia Staff.
  13. Impersonation of other users is not allowed. Such actions will result as the same punishment as being underaged.
  14. Have fun and remember to follow these rules.
 Writing Guidelines

Links

If you mention something that has its own page, link it.

Formats

If you are writing an article that has a specific format, you should follow that page's format. For example, this is the template for Infinity Blade III weapons. This includes elements such as infoboxes and gallery sections.

Headings and Contents

Level 1 headings (<h1> or =) should not be used. The top level heading being currently used is level 2 (<h2> or ==). Smaller headings can be used.

If the article has 2 or less headings & subheadings, there is no need to place a table of contents. This can be done using __NOTOC__. Same goes for a page that has 10 or more.

Grammar

Only American English is to be used.

If you are not comfortable with English for any reason, please ask an editor who is proficient at English to proofread your edit for you.

Important Grammar Points

Words in titles should all have capital letters besides conjunctions, prepositions, etc... (such as "and", "or", "of", "in", and so on).

If a sentence contains more than one idea, it is a run-on sentence and should be split up. If a sentence contains an incomplete idea, it is a fragment and needs extension or merging with another sentence.

Writing Style

Formal and Technical Language

Subject-specific terminology should be used in all articles. If you are talking about swords, for example, use vocabulary relevant to swords, such as "tang", "blade", or "hilt". Don't just use generic terms like "handle" or "sharp part".

The attitude of the writing must be formal. This means that it should be professional and organized.

Tone

When writing an article, you have to write in third-person. This means that you do not use personal pronouns ("I", "we", "us") or ever use the word "you" in an article. If you wish to address the reader, then say it the way you would in a procedural text using commands, such as "go" or "climb". If it is absolutely needed, you can use "the player" or "one".

Weasel Words

Weasel words are indirect phrases such as "it is said" or "some believe". Instead of saying this, say exactly who it is that says or believes <whatever it is that they believe>.

 Ambassador Guidelines

Ambassadors are expected to act respectably. This involves acting like you would if you were conversing and editing as if you are at the wiki you represent.

  • You are expected to act like an admin would act on this wiki. However, your words carry the weight of every other regular and respected user of the wiki.

You are expected to act nicely, as your presence on this wiki marks the affiliation of the Infinity Blade Wiki with the wiki you represent.

The general policies apply to these users – these users are not responsible for the actions of other users on the Infinity Blade Wiki or the wiki they represent.

These users however, along with admins from the Infinity Blade wiki, must work to quickly resolve problems if they arise.
