When joining a community, either online or in real life, each of their members are supposed to follow a set of rules to make their coexistence and colaborative efforts as smooth as possible. As a community of both fans AND editors, members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Wiki are expected to follow a very basic and logical set of rules, in order to achieve our common goal of building this encyclopedia.
This set of rules is straightly adapted from Fandom's Wiki Rules.
- Keep it civil: Do not make personal attacks on other people. If you need to criticize another user's argument, reason or edit, do so without attacking them as a person. Do not use bigoted language, including slurs which degrade another person or group of people based on gender, race, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, etc.
- Be a productive member of the wiki: Contribute to the wiki in line with the established processes and conventions. In some cases, these conventions are widely followed but haven't been actually written anywhere, most likely due to unawareness that they are not formally written, but that doesn't make them any less valid. If you need help, ask an administrator for guidance or advices. Disrupting the wiki in any way, especially with “edit warring” over differing opinions of a topic with another user or group of users, or deliberately not following policies or the wiki's manual of style is not productive.
- Do not engage in excessive self-promotion: The wiki is a collaborative community resource for the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. It is NOT a free place to advertise your related website, YouTube channel, blog, social media account, discord server, etc. If you don't know where such links would be better placed, ask an administrator.
- Do not harass other users: If somebody asks you to stop posting certain content on their wall, respect their wishes. It is their wall. Same goes for not bursting into a conversation between two people, or going to give your own answer when an administrator is asked about something. If it is rude when done in real life, it is also rude doing it on the internet.
- Do follow community guidelines for formatting: When a community has established formatting such as this wiki's manual of style and related policies, it's important to adhere to that, especially when caution for newly released content is required, either due to spoilers or due to assumptions about information not provided.
