==When Adding Pages or Editing:==
 
Please,
 
 
#Do not make useless pages or edits; do not make a page with nothing or very little on it. Those pages will be deleted.
 
#Do not edit in opinion; if you see a guild page and think it is a bad guild, do not put, "This guild is horrible".
 
#Do not make a page that is just information from Pirates Online; for example, do not make a page about War Frigates. There is a wiki for factual information found [http://piratesonline.wikia.com here]. You can make a page about your War Frigate.
 
#Do not spam or delete everything on a page; doing so may result in a strike or ban.
 
#Do not edit something that you think the creator will not like.
 
#Be nice when editing or making pages; do not make a page or edit stating something mean about someone.
 
#Use somebody's talk page if you wish to speak with them.
 
#Do not make pages that don't fit the 1700s. As the Pirates of the Caribbean universe takes place in the 18th century, you must make articles that fit in it. That means you can't make articles on computers, missiles, machine guns, etc.
 
#Please refrain from creation of blogs/pages related to users who have been banned fairly. These cause unnecessary drama and fighting. This is the sole exception to the "no bias" rule.

==Roleplay==
 
#There will be no claiming of countries without approval from a consensus of a select group of users.(This will prevent users from randomly claiming countries)
 
#It is forbidden for users to create fictional countries that did not exist in the year of 1746. (Any existing fictional countries will remain)
 
#All RP wars and battles will take place on the game. There will be no "England nukes Spain, they win the war"
 
#After three months of inactivity on the wiki or game, a leader will forfeit their country. (They can, however, rebuild their armies and reclaim their nation. If someone else has claimed it, they can challenge that claimant to a battle for control of the country)
 
#Countries boundaries are limited to what could be historically possible. For example a country such as France could not technically have territories in a place such as Asia. However, if a country has existing territories in an area they can rightfully expand to the surrounding areas.
 
#If a country has no heir, a consensus of users will chose a worthy successor to the throne.
 
#Users cannot claim more than one country. To maintain equality a user can only have one country. However, countries can be combined to make a single country.
 
#Users cannot form colonies elsewhere if they were realistically unable to (In terms of size of the nation, the population, etc.)
 
#There will be a map decided upon by a consensus of users of the wiki.
 
#This wiki has set roleplay policies, and thus, leaders. Refusal to acknowledge these leaders will result in action taken against you.
 
#Do not make any blogs about the defeat of other players in Role-play fights. This causes excess drama that is not needed here.
 
#You can't make pages or blogs pertaining to the results of role-playing wars.
 
 
== Other ==
 
#ALL debates are to be ''civil''; no insulting, no caps-lock. Taking debates too seriously and causing arguments will result in action being taken.
 
#If the fight doesn't end, the admin moves it to their blog and disables comments. They will move it back when they feel people are calm.
 
#Admins are to not insult or take part in arguments, unless they are trying to cease fighting.
 
#Roleplay is welcome, but if you wish to create conflict or arguments about roleplay, it must be on the game.
 
#People who instigate fights (attempt to start fights), scream in caps-lock, curse, etc. will get a strike. No exceptions.
 
#If a user is banned, their sockpuppets must be banned on sight. Refrain from arguing with them or otherwise giving them attention.
 
#If there is an issue on another wiki, we ignore it. We do not have to get involved in drama from other wikis.
 
#Demotions will only be held if the person in question is being a bad admin; if they do one thing that you don't like, it doesn't mean they're abusing power.
 
#Don't make accusations unless you have concrete evidence. If arguments escalate, the comments will be disabled and the fight will be moved.
 
#People are to refrain from complaining over the most trivial things (ie: HE DIDN'T ACCEPT MY APOLOGY!).
 
#Users may not create second accounts ("sock-puppets") to use on the wiki. Administrator bots are an exception.
 
#If you disagree with any action(s) taken against you or another user, please do not cause riots about it in chat. Instead, please discuss it with an administrator in personal message or talk page message. Not only does this prevent fights and drama in chat&mdash;as well as further action being taken&mdash;, it also increases the chances of the punishment being changed (if you feel that you have a better chance of getting the action altered or removed with multiple user approval, tell the users who agree with you to also contact administrators).
 
#You are not to discuss hacking the game or show a user how to hack unless they give you their consent to discuss it in private messages on chat. Any discussion of hacking with the exception of consented private messaging is prohibited.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Thanks!

Revision as of 21:50, September 11, 2013

  1. Please be kind to others, show respect to all, and don't use rude language.
  2. This Wiki is an English Wiki, however if you are to speak in a foreign language you may do so, so long as you give a translation.
  3. Do not feed the trolls, or anyone who comes here simply to troll. Do not reply to their comment saying "OMG ADMINS BAN NOW!!" This only gives the troll(s) attention, which they crave. They come simply to mess with us by using vulgar language, spamming and vandalizing pages. Ignore them and inform an admin via talk page or private message.
  4. If you wish to make a major change to someone’s fan creation/guild/group page please contact them before doing so.
  5. You may not take another user's page away from them without their permission. It is unfair to the creator for someone to claim ownership of their page just because they're not there to stop them.
  6. All edits should be made in Good Faith.
  7. Please do not make pages about ideas, questions, and/or discussions. These pages should be what is called a user blog.
  8. When adding a picture to a page, the picture must be reasonable for that page.
  9. Do not upload pictures of yourself in real life. This is to protect the identity of the users. (exception: Profile pictures/Avatars CAN be yourself, as we have no control over such)
  10. Do not claim an idea of a page yours, unless you have solid evidence that it is, which must be hosted on the wiki, and not be a picture, but a link to the history or such.
  11. Administrators decide ban or chat ban lengths based on an administrator only vote. Arguing with these decisions will not change the length.
  12. Ban-dodging will lengthen your block on all of your accounts, and a ban will be placed on your IP address.
  13. Please do not attempt to cause more arguing on a blog post that already has fighting present. Doing so will result in a strike or a small ban.
  14. Please do not in any way attempt to conflict with administrators when they are attempting to calm down an argument. Doing so will result in action being taken.
  15. Please do not make unreasonable edits. Also, do not edit pages just to increase your edit count, doing so will make you subject to a block.
  16. If you are an anonymous user (meaning you aren't registered), please do not complain about a ban. Doing so will get the ban lengthened.
  17. Religious and political discussions are allowed. However, if any users feel uncomfortable about what is being discussed, they have every right to ask the participants to stop, and they must. Never discriminate somebody else's religion, or try to enforce your beliefs on another.
  18. No bias. We, much like many other sites, do not allow bias towards or against any group or individual.
  19. No cyber bullying, cyber harassment or cyber stalking.
  20. No vandalism.
  21. No links to inappropriate content. Anything that is not family friendly should not be linked to from the wiki. Linking anything of this sort will result in a 3-day block.
  22. When an admin tells you to calm down or cease fighting/arguing, do so; failure to do so or if you continue to argue with the admin, strikes will be issued without further warning.
  23. When posting content to the wiki, keep in mind that we are not to be held responsible for anything posted by persons who are not us (the admins). You must take responsibility for your actions.
  24. Do not ask for admin powers in blogs or comments. The admin team will promote people by complete surprise. We will pick people who deserve the powers and have worked hard to improve the wiki. Do not ever ask for a promotion in any way.
  25. Do not bother Wikia staff for IP checks, ban removals or anything related to admins. In extreme cases of spam, you may contact VSTF (Volunteer Spam Task Force). Please talk to the admins before going to Wikia staff for assistance.
  26. Ask for admin permission before you advertise another wiki. Admins can reject your application for advertising a wiki, even without a reason.
  27. You may have mild swearing in your stories. Words that are allowed are ass, arse, hell, damned, bastard and wench. Please be sure to use {{SwearingStory}} or {{Swear}} on pages with some language as a warning to the reader.
  28. On the wiki itself and on chat, there will be no tolerance for extreme curse words, vulgarity, racial slurs, or other highly inappropriate words. No exceptions.
  29. Anyone who creates an unblock request for a user who has been blocked fairly will receive 1 strike. If it happens again, another strike will be issued. After the second time it is remade the user will be blocked for 2 weeks.
  30. A user should not get punished for something related to ex post facto. They will not get punished if they break the rule before it gets passed. For example, if a user does something on Tuesday and a new rule forbidding that goes into effect on Wednesday, they should not get in trouble for breaking the rule.
  31. If action is taken against you in chat (such as a chat strike), do not complain about it in public chat. Doing so will result in another chat strike or a chat ban. Instead, consult an administrator in PM.
  32. If you are banned from chat, do not make a complaint blog about the issue. Doing so will result in the ban being lengthened. Instead, contact an administrator via talk page.
  33. Do not make blogs directly insulting a user of this wiki, or with the intent or purpose to cause a riot or drama. Any such blogs will be deleted, and action taken against the creator.
  34. All content added to the wiki must be original material. Plagiarism or copyrights material and images will not be tolerated and will be subject to immediate deletion.
  35. Do not bring drama directly from the game onto the wiki; likewise, do not bring conflicts from other wikis onto our wiki.
