07th Expansion Wiki

Please take the time to read through these rules if you plan on being a regular or semi-regular for the wiki.

  1. BE BOLD in updating pages! This is a wiki and it's built by the community piece by piece.
  2. Be civil to other users at all times. Always assume that others are making edits in good faith unless it is a clear case of vandalism. Even if you disagree with another editor's views, you should be respectful towards them.
  3. Communicate! Communication is really important in collaborative work and it makes it way easier to understand where another editor is coming from than trying to assume things based off their edits. Communication is also a two way street. Don't just ask the other person to explain themselves, set an example by explaining your perspective first.
    • You can use our article Talk pages or the Message Wall on another user's profile. If you are doing this, sign you messages with ~~~~, which gets replaced by your username and timestamp when you hit Save.
    • You can also join our Discord server, which is linked on the main page. This allows for communication in real time which makes unraveling the issue much easier. Plus you get to meet your fellow editors too!
  4. Document your work. Try to leave an edit summary on any edit that isn't minor or self-explanatory, or do so for those too so that it's easier to know what was changed at a glance. Please include both the what and the why so that others can understand your thought process.
  5. Don't vandalize. This probably doesn't apply to you if you're already taking the time to read this page, but it's worth stating explicitly. Vandalism will result in a block, most likely permanent depending on the severity of the vandalism.
  6. Follow the Manual of Style. This isn't as important if you're not a regular since we fix things up too, but if you plan to be doing a significant amount of work it's important to adhere to our standards so that the encyclopedia stays both professional and consistent.
  7. Content on articles should be written in your own words. Don't copy things directly from other wikis or websites without providing a link back to the original source, unless you are the original author. Offending material will be removed or rewritten, and a warning will be issued if this cannot be remedied in due time. If plagiarism proves to be a consistent issue, then you will be blocked.
  8. Respect copyright. Wikia uses the GNU Free Documentation License. Everything you contribute must be compatible with that license.
  9. Official staff decisions may be made to settle any persistent disagreements between two or more editors. When this happens, we ask that you respect and comply with the official decision.

In addition to these, there are several policies that apply across all fandom wikis. See this page.
