This is a list of rules that an editor must follow, if he or she intends to edit here. If a rule is broken, and the editor has an account, they will be given a chance to explain themselves, and the Spider-Man Wiki Staff will decide on a punishment, most likely the one described in the rule, of the corrosponding offence. Punishment will be at the discretion of the enforcing staff member. The Spider-Manwiki staff retains the right to enforce any rule, even unwritten. Bottom line, if you think it may be unacceptable, don't do it. If you have common sense, you will be fine. The policies of the Spider-Man Wiki are as follows:
Rule #1: Listen to the staff
A staff-member will probably never force you to do anything, but rather tell you what not to do. The staff exists to maintain order, and refusing to comply will have consequences.
Rule #2: No copying from any other databases
All content must be original unless one needs help with a banner. If somebody violates this rule, they will probably not be punished at first, but may be after multiple offenses. The material will be deleted without warning. If you see this, please add the plagiarism banner.
Rule #3: All articles must involve Spider-Man
Articles that do not involve Spider-Man will be deleted unless they are blogs or apart of user-pages, hence this wiki's name.
Rule #4: No inappropriate pictures that do not involve Spider-Man
Misdemeanors of this rule can result in a block.
Rule #5: No harassment or swearing
To put it shortly, wearing and harassment aren't allowed.
Rule #6: No badge-editing
We are all aware that this wiki has badges that award points. Do not edit for the sole purpose of getting these badges. It is not constructive and will eventually result in a block.
Rule #7: No page-ruining
Don't ruin any of the articles. This is an inexcusable offense that will result in an immediate block.
Rule #8: No redundancies
Repetitive messages, and redundant information fall under this category. Violation of this rule will eventually result in a block.
Rule #9: No drama
This is a wiki, not an asylum. If you feel that you've been wronged, tell the active sysop (Professor Bookworm). Do not start pointless drama.
Rule #10: No picking fights
This wiki does not need fights. If you are found guilty of picking fights, you will be immediately blocked.
Rule #11: No multiple accounts
If you have one account, keep it that way. Editors caught using more than one account to cause trouble will be banned.
Rule #12: No unacceptable usernames
Keep your usernames appropriate. Names that are entirely capitalized or inappropriate (such as, but not limited to, "CAPTAIN TOILET" or "Poop-Head") will result in a permanent ban.
Rule #13: No sensuality
This covers a lot. Don't use this wiki to talk about character relationships whether they're real or made up. The only exeption, would be relationships related to an article. Please try to keep anything sensual within the articles to a minimum. Sexual and sensual references and/or innuendos outside articles will never be tolerated, no matter how harmless it may seem. Also, do not use this wiki to start dating other users. It is downright unacceptable and will result in a long block.
Rule #14: "Fictional" point-of-view
Spiderman is a fictional character, so all pages involving his continuity must be written from a "fictional" point-of-view, or, in other words, as if they're happening now. Misdemeanors of this rule won't result in getting banned, but it's pretty improper.
