- BE BOLD! in updating pages. Go ahead, it's a wiki!
Encourage others, including those who disagree with you, likewise to BE BOLD!
- Be civil to other users at all times.
- When in doubt, talk it out in the talk pages. We have all the time in the world. Mutual respect is the guiding behavioral principle of Wikia and, although everyone knows that their writing may be edited mercilessly, it is easier to accept changes if the reasons for them are understood. If you discuss changes on the article's talk (or discussion) page before you make them, you should reach consensus faster and happier.
- Respect Copyright. Wikia uses the GNU Free Documentation License. Everything you contribute must be compatible with that license.
- Decent edit summaries and clear and transparent explanations are universally appreciated. Other editors need to understand your process, and it also helps you yourself to understand what you did after a long leave of absence from an article. Please state what you changed and why. If the explanation is too long, add more on the discussion page.
- Assume good faith; in other words, try to consider that the person on the other end of the discussion is a thinking, rational being who is trying to positively contribute to the project — unless, and only unless, you have firm, solid, and objective proof to the contrary. Merely disagreeing with you is no such proof.
- Particularly, don't revert good faith edits. Reverting is too powerful sometimes. Don't succumb to the temptation, unless you're reverting very obvious vandalism (like "LALALALAL", or someone changing "1+2=3" to "1+2=17"). If you really can't stand something, revert once, with an edit summary something like "I disagree strongly, I'll explain why in talk." and immediately take it to talk.
- No personal attacks. Don't write that user such and so is an idiot, or insult him/her (even if (s)he is an idiot). Instead, explain what they did wrong, why it is wrong, and how to fix it. If possible, fix it yourself (but see above).
- Be graceful: Be liberal in what you accept, be conservative in what you do. Try to accommodate other people's quirks the best you can, but try to be as polite, solid, and straightforward as possible yourself.
- Sign your posts on talk pages using ~~~~, which gets replaced by your username and timestamp when you hit Save. But don't sign on mainspace articles.
- Use the preview button; it helps prevents edit conflicts and mistakes.
- Keep it tight: try no to make multiple consecutive edits on one page, this fills up it's history and makes it harder for the Admins to clear out possible vandalism, instead hit the edit button on the top of the page to edit it as a whole, rather then doing header by header.
It's important to have fun... but try to make sure those around you have fun too!
The wiki will more likely start several projects for improvement purposes. For the safe function of these projects the following regulations have been established:
- Editors can perform large scale changes if they have requested and have been granted the appropriate License by the Bureaucrat.
- Anyone who performs large scale changes without this license will be subject to Vandalism Policy.
- Anyone who uses the license without the Bureaucrats permission will be subject to Vandalism Policy.
- Always sign your comments with ~~~~.
- Any user with a custom signature must have the code for their signature in a template so that the (very long) code is not seen in the source mode editor. If you are unsure of what that means and you wish to have a custom signature, contact an editor who knows what it means, or join us in the chat.
- Signatures cannot be invisible or non-existent.
- Users may not request for the template of their signatures to be deleted, as this will lead to the creation of broken links on all the pages that were signed with that signature.
- Signatures cannot link anywhere except for the user's own pages (meaning any page the user has created with their own "user" namespace. And that applies both the talk and profile page links.
- Forum creators must have enough content to start a discussion. If any forum is created without any content other than a topic, it will be deleted.
- Forums cannot have a title that is the exactly the same as any article on the site, as this may lead to errors in the search function.
- Similarly, forums may not have a title that is exactly the same as a redirect to any article.
- Forums may also not have titles with all capital letters or excessive punctuation. This is also because of difficulties created in the search function.
- Users may not change the font or font size of posts within a forum. Text may only be changed to bold, italics, underlined, or strike-through text.
- Do not incorrectly categorize forums. Forums that are incorrectly categorized will be deleted, not moved.
- Images that are unrelated to the discussion are not allowed.
- Forums created for the purpose of promoting podcasts, fan-art, videos (especially AMVs), and external blogs or anything similar are considered spam, are forbidden, and will be deleted.
- If a topic on a talk page is deemed too forum-like, it must be moved to the forums before it can continue. If it was an active discussion, leave a link to the page its been added to and the title on the talk page where it was placed originally. If the topic is brand new, the user who created it should be notified to move the topic themselves. After a topic is moved, a line stating it has been moved must be placed underneath it to inform that the topic was originally moved from elsewhere.
- Forums that have been unedited for a long period of time become archived, and the discussion is considered closed. Users are strongly discouraged from editing archived forums but are not fully prohibited from reopening them.
- Archived forums should only be opened if something substantial can be added to the conversation.
- If a forum is not archived and the discussion is still active, then a forum about the same topic cannot be opened. If a forum is opened about the same topic, it will either be deleted, or its information will be moved into the relevant forum if it is important enough.
- Article talk pages are used to discuss issues on the article itself, not for speculation on the article's content. This shall be taken to blogs or the forum.
- Personal attacks between users are not permitted on talk pages. Continuing this activity may result in a ban.
Blogs are ways to communicate with other users in a more casual and open manner than in talk pages or forums. In blogs, users have the ability to quickly and easily comment on opinions, as well as share ideas quickly and efficiently. While blogs are more lightly regulated, there are some restrictions to prevent pointless blogs.
- Blogs must contain some content. Short, one-sentence blogs, or blogs lacking content to begin a conversation are forbidden and subject to administrator deletion.
- Rudeness and insulting of other users will not be tolerated. Remember that other users may have other opinion that may contradict your own. Be respectful.
The chat room is a place to communicate with other users quickly and efficiently. In order to use the chat room, you must have an account. Remember that the chat room is a privilege, and can be taken away at administrator discretion. Chat moderators and administrators hold the power to kick and ban users from the chat.
- Insulting, threatening, or being rude to other users.
- Spamming the chat. This can include, but is not limited to, repeatedly posting links, writing the same thing over and over again, or posting inappropriate images in the chat.
- Linking of pornographic material and/or any sexual discussion in the main chat.
- Disruption to the chat such as excessive racism, religious, flaming wars, bashing and gore links/discussions are also not accepted.
Steps of a BanEdit
- A ban-worthy chat offense is first served with a warning, either verbal or in the form of a kick, from a chat moderator or administrator.
- The second warning is followed by a ban from chat. In order to argue your ban, you can contact the moderator who performed the action.
In order to avoid mixed languages in our wiki please note that:
- the Wiki is written (obviously) in English so stick with it.
- since the wiki is about the Korean Manhwa with the same name we can refer to Korean names and terms.
- use of other languages apart from those used in the actual manhwa should be avoided, regardless of whether the references to other languages is generally visible or not. Example: Coding in templates should not contain any references to other languages regardless of whether it is visible.
Speculation is defined as any information assumed by a character or person and unconfirmed in the series. All speculation, such as the death of a character or their abilities and powers (if unconfirmed), are to be left off of articles and taken to a forum or blog. In addition, add a speculated or implied information only by including "it is assumed that", or any related phrases that indicate speculation.
Spoilers are any information unconfirmed by an official source. Due to them being unconfirmed, they may not be used on articles.
- Do not post chapter spoilers until they have been released by an official source.
- Do not post information translated by an unofficial source such as on a random forum or fan-site.
