UPON JOINING THIS WIKI YOU AGREE TO ADHERE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN STAFF MESSAGING OR BANNING.
SIMPLY CLAIMING THAT YOU HAD NO NOTICE OF THESE RULES IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
READ CLEARLY WHEN YOU HAVE THE TIME.
The purpose of Policies & Rules for Phantom Forces Wiki boils down to creating an environment and that is:
Safe for users under 18 since most of the Phantom Forces players are young people.
Friendly and tolerant of small mistakes.
Encouragement to use and share their talents and knowledge into the wiki.
General Behavior must be done in the wiki:
When you can reasonably assume that a mistake someone made was a well-intentioned attempt to ameliorate the wiki, correct it without criticizing.
Be patient with newcomers. Newcomers unaware of Phantom Forces Wiki's culture and the mechanics of editing often make mistakes or fail to respect community norms. This rule also applies to acronyms, abbreviations and emoticons.
Personal attacks are arguments that focus on attacking another user personally, rather than addressing his arguments regarding the subject matter. Users who participate in personal attacks are immediately subject to administrative action, including banning. Warnings may be given, but are not guaranteed.
An edit war is the act of two or more parties adding and/or reverting an article's content to suit their own view of the subject. Depending on the severity of the edit war, administrators will decide if a ban is warranted, or just a warning.
Sock puppetry is the act of creating secondary accounts for yourself, or having friends create new accounts, for the purpose of adding weight to an argument. Users that are found to be participating in sock puppetry will be dealt with at the administrator's discretion and are subject to warning or bans if necessary.
Spam is superfluous content to the wiki and its community, and is most likely unrelated to those. Some examples of spam are: (i) advertisements; (ii) unnecessary code; (iii) "fake items" or other false articles; (iv) words, emotes or repetitive/excessive statements not pertinent to a topic. All spam will be deleted upon sighting and violators of this rule may find themselves banned for a period of time relative to the offense.
Vandalism is the act of creating or changing a page to either destroy, alter, or intentionally pervert the information in an article. Users who perform acts of vandalism will be banned. This is usually a permanent ban, but administrators reserve the right to impose a shorter ban at their discretion.
Articles about companies and products are not acceptable.
Do not remove threads unless for a legitimate reason (i.e.e spam, trolling, etc). If a user removed a thread from their own wall, do not restore it. If a thread is removed more than twice, do not restore it.
Abuse, harass, threaten, impersonate or intimidate other Wikia users;
Ask any user's age unless they are applying for an admin or chatmod position;

Policies about uploading photos/videos:

The wiki does not stand for cheating. Any screen captures of gameplay that show elements that require hacks, exploits, or other methods of cheating will be deleted and the uploader may be banned at the discretion of the admins.
Pictures about game content yet to be released are prohibited, as this wiki is about legal and current in-game content.
Policies about posting links on wiki pages:
The decision of the administrators to accept or reject any submitted link is final.
Violation of these rules may result in a temporary or permanent ban from Phantom Forces Wiki.
Chat Policies and Guidelines
The Phantom Forces Wiki chat is a way for the Wiki users to connect with each other in a relaxed, fun and dynamic environment. These rules are in place to ensure that the chat room maintains a hospitable environment for all Wiki users to enjoy and feel welcome in.
Users should use common sense and respect each other. If a user wants to be treated well they should treat others well in return.
The rest of the Rules and Policies above apply to the Chat as well.
Topics not pertaining to Phantom Forces must be put on hold if Phantom Forces topics arise. The only location where off-topics are allowed will be in the Off-Topic board
When you use the chat, you agree not to:
Harass any other members of the wiki.
Post links with explicit sexual, violent, or otherwise offensive content, or bring those topics in the discussion.
Impersonate any other person. This includes making multiple accounts or "avatar swapping".
Ask for personal information (address, password, etc.) from another user.
Excessively type in capital letters. It is considered "yelling" in chat, and overuse is regarded as rude.
Writing one or two words in all capital letters for emphasis is acceptable
Use "swear words" or vulgar words.
Some words may be considered "swear" or vulgar by some, but not by others. It is the discretion of the Chat Moderator or Administrator if a word is being used in an offensive manner.
Post an excessive number of emoticons, pictures, emojis, or gifs into chat. Chat is for CHAT.
Using emoticons, pictures, or emojis in chat more than once per sentence or statement is considered excessive.
As exception on the previous rule, it's allowed to use multiplay emoticons in one sentence as an tool to explain an breeding combination with the emoticons that are listed on the emoticons page.
Spam. Anything. At all.
Spam is the use of superfluous content that does not contribute to the current topic, attempts to change the topic, or disrupts the flow of conversation. Some examples for spam are: advertisements; unnecessary code; "fake items" or other false articles; repetitive words, emotes, statements, links (to personal blogs or external sites) and vouching requests for staff position.
Try to enforce the Chat Policies without Chat Moderator, Admin or Bureaucrat status.
Converse in a language other than English. While we acknowledge and encourage users from all around the world, it is next to impossible for any given mod/admin to moderate in a language which they do not know or understand.
To tell people to add you on Facebook, as its against Facebook's policy
Phantom Forces Wiki's Staff retain the right to ban or kick a user from chat if the user does not conform to the policies outlined above.
