Canon Policy Chat Policy Layout Guide Speculation Policy Image Policy

Hello and welcome to the Bleach Wiki. There are very few policies which apply across all of Wikia; the ones that do can be found at their Policy Category.

In addition to these policies, there have been policies and guidelines that have been developed on the Bleach Wiki to further our goal of creating an informative Bleach database. Our policies apply to all editors.

We at the Bleach Wiki strive to create a welcoming and fun environment for those who are civil and assume good faith in others, seek consensus in discussions, and work towards the goal of creating an increasingly comprehensive database about everything in the Bleach Universe.

Policies need to be approached with common sense; adhere to the spirit rather than the lettering of the rules, and be prepared to break the rules on the rare occasion when they conflict with the goal of improving the wiki.

User Page Policy Redirect Policy Manual of Style Spoiler Policy Blocking Policy

Blocking is the method by which administrators may technically prevent users from editing Bleach Wiki. Blocks are used to prevent damage or disruption, not to punish users. Blocks sometimes are used as a deterrent, to discourage whatever behavior led to the block and encourage a productive editing environment.

Any user may request a block at Forum:Administrative Requests for major incidents of vandalism or disruption. Users requesting blocks should supply credible evidence of the circumstances warranting a block. Administrators are never obliged to place a block and are free to investigate the situation themselves. Because blocks may be reviewed and appealed, it is often important that the blocking and reviewing administrators each communicate with and take care to inform the other.

Blocked users can appeal their blocks by making a statement on their talk page. Except in cases of unambiguous error, administrators should not undo other administrators' blocks without prior discussion; see below.

Reasons for Blocking

Accounts and address may be blocked for:

  • Persistently making personal attacks
  • Persistent vandalism (Though obvious blatant vandalism warrants a immediate block, such as removing page content for no reason or removing references for no reason)
  • Persistent gross incivility
  • Persistent harassment
  • Persistent spamming
  • Edit warring or revert warring (especially with an admin or committee member without due cause, determined by whether content in question is correct or incorrect at its current state. Which must be proven by party making the change.)
  • Breaching the multiple users policy
  • Persistently violating other policies or guidelines
  • Accounts with inappropriate usernames

Durations for Blocking

Everyone besides blatant vandalism gets a warning. Though if you have been on this site long enough you should know better, which also can dictate the duration or whether you receive a warning though this is based on the particular Admins discretion.

  • (inserting abuse, blanking pages etc.)":
    • 1st offence = warning
    • 2nd offence = 1 week block or more
    • 3rd offence = 3 months block or more
    • Futher offence? = 1 year block
  • Registered vandals:
    • 1st offence = warning
    • 2nd offence = 2 week block to a 1 year
    • Further offence? = infinite block
  • Problem users (personal attacks, disruption, disregarding policy):
    • Offence = warning
    • 3 warnings = 2 week block
    • 2 blocks = 3 month block
    • Further offence? = infinite block
  • (multiple usernames for the same person):
    • 1st offence = variable, either long or infinite
