Warning Policy

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

When a registered user does not edit with civility and etiquette they will be issued a warning. Warnings result in predetermined feelings and they lead to blocks. Warnings, however, are still determined by administrators. For example correcting indentations may result in discretional feelings while being personally attacked are predetermined feelings.

Definition[edit]

First and foremost, as mentioned above, editing without civility and etiquette, as defined by Wikipedia Policy, warrants a warning. This includes, but is not exclusively limited to, the following offenses:

  • Harassment
  • Personal attacks such as racial, ethnic, sexual, gender-related and religious slurs, and derogatory references to groups such as social classes or nationalities
  • Verbal abuse
  • Profanity
  • Belittling another contributor
  • Lying
  • Quoting another editor out of context
  • Rudeness: insults, name-calling, gross profanity or indecent suggestions

Mediations[edit]

The ban length starts with one week at three warnings and then increases such that the warning ban number as a full integer is the same as the number of weeks one is banned for.

Warnings are given by admins; an admin should post one indent earlier then the post which is not civil with {{warning|comparedselectedrevisions=<!-difference of the contributors' text removal replaced with [[Template:Warning/Text]]|brokenpolicy=<!-broken policy relating to the warning - see also civility and etiquette->|warningnumber=<!-the users warning number -1,2,3|warningbannumber=the users warning ban number|issuedate=<!-the date issued, if different from the date of the post->|signature=--~~~~}}. After that post it should continue along the same post thread as before (two later).

If a user's contributions have incurred no additional warnings over six months since their last contribution incurred a warning the warnings will be removed.

Comments with offending text written, at any time, by IPs will be edited like every other warn-able offense, but no warning will be issued.

IPs with warn-able offenses will be blocked and the block reason should say "IP leaving comments in violation of warning policy". This policy is not related to them from this point.

If an administrator is issued three warnings, and a subsequent block, their administrator standing will be put to a vote. After the block is over, they will be RfA'd, and removed from power if they are found to no longer be upholding the values of the community.

Bureaucrats are exempt from receiving warnings.

Warnings Issued[edit]

Any discrepancies on a warning's creditability or reason should be brought up on the talk page.

If you know of a page where [a] warning[s] need[s] to be given please bring that up on the talk page.
