  • Hello everyone! It's 2019, and a few of us have been discussing some changes that are desperately needed around here. On the discord we came up with a draft for an update to the wiki's rules, policies, and standards.

    Please take a moment to read the draft and let us know what you think.

    Global Rules

    1. All articles must maintain proper use of English and grammar, regardless of what language the user speaks.
    2. All articles must meet standards at the time of posting. Do not post articles that do not meet standards, even if you intend to add to them later.
    3. No pornographic, erotic, or fetish content is allowed, even if it’s censored or cropped.
    4. Art theft is strictly prohibited. This includes:
      • Recolored artwork
      • Traced artwork
      • Otherwise modified artwork
      • Outright stolen characters
    5. Don’t argue with staff. Disagreement is one thing, however, staff decisions are final.
    6. Permanent bans will result in deletion of any pages that you own.
    7. Staff may swiftly delete articles they deem to be offensive or in bad taste.

    Article Standards

    All articles on the wiki must follow the below guidelines. Whether or not a specific article meets the requirements will be determined by the community and ultimately the staff. Any ambiguation regarding these rules will be decided by staff, and the standards may be updated to reflect the result.

    All Articles

    All articles must have a minimum of 2 paragraphs of information. On a bare minimum page, each paragraph must contain at least two sentences of meaningful information.

    Characters

    Character articles must have the following information:

    • Appearance - Either a section describing the character or an image
    • Personality - Tell us about the character

    Crossover characters are allowed, however, they must maintain a strong tie to the Sonic universe.

    Objects

    Items, Weapons, Tools

    Articles about inanimate objects must have the following information:

    • Appearance - What does it look like?
    • Function - What does it do?

    Places

    Cities, Towns, Buildings

    Articles about places must have the following information:

    • Appearance - What does it look like? Include either a description or an image.
    • Location - Where is it?

    Groups

    Races, Nations, Cultures, Religions, Organizations

    Articles about groups must have the following information:

    • Description - What is the group?
    • Membership - Who is in the group?

    Skills

    Attacks, Abilities, Techniques, Powers

    Articles about skills must have the following information:

    • Description - What is it? How does it work?
    • Advantages - What makes it strong?
    • Disadvantages - Are there any drawbacks? Weaknesses?

    Fanfiction

    Stories

    Articles about fanfiction stories must have the following information:

    • Author - Who wrote it?
    • Synopsis - What is it about?
    • Link(s) - Link to the story sub-page(s)


    Fanfiction articles are for summarizing stories and linking to them. The actual fanfiction stories should be posted on sub-pages of the main article.

    Roleplays

    Roleplay welcome pages must have the following information:

    • Summary - A summary of the scenario surrounding the roleplay
    • Participants - A list of participating characters (and owners)
    • Availability - Is the roleplay private or free-join?
    • Link(s) - Link to the roleplay sub-page(s)

    Roleplay articles are for summarizing the roleplay and linking to its parts. The actual roleplaying should be posted on sub-pages of the main article.

    Crossovers

    In addition to meeting the above standards, crossover content must:

    • Maintain a strong connection to the Sonic universe
    • Not be a direct transplant from another fandom

    Some content may not meet these requirements. If that is the case, you should create or link to a page on a more relevant fandom’s wiki instead.

    Please note, I will delete comments that are irrelevant or contain no useful discussion. If you like it, you can support it. If you dislike it, say why and what you would do differently.

    Remember that any page that is deleted can always be un-deleted by a staff member.
