FANDOM



You must follow all of these rules:

General Rules

  • As per wikia guidlines, every user must be 13 years old or over to edit pages and have an account. Failure to comply with this rule will result in an automatice ban.
  • No spamming
  • All users must have an account to join, otherwise, your edits are considered spam.
  • No swearing. That includes ones that may not be swears to some users. Abbreviated and censored are also forbidden
  • No vandalism
  • No more than one account. Bots are not counted. If you make a second account after being banned, you WILL be found out and the duplicate account(s) will be banned for good. 
  • This is quite obvious, but be cool with all users. Especially the admins who have the right to kick anyone out who gets out of line. 

Message Wall Rules

  • Do not rewrite messages, unless it is your section.
  • Please do not remove messages from message walls unless it is spam.
  • While not really a "rule", we ask that all members please remember to sign all comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • Article talk pages, like the template header at the top states, are there for discussing changes to the article,not for a discussion about the topic in question.
  • Don't rewrite other user's messages.
  • Don't answer messages left for other users.
  • Leaving messages on your own wall is considered spam. Doing so is not "talking to everyone" as no one gets a notification saying that you've left the message.

Editing Rules

  • Please log in before making an edit. Making it as an anonymous user is considered spam as we do not know the person making the edit. 
  • No editing just for the sake of it. Just because you have more edits than another user doesn't make you more important than them.
  • It may not make sense what an admin does when they roll back an edit. When you put it back on, please describe why you have changed the article. If the article is reverted twice by an admin, don't keep on adding it back as it might cause you to get one or more strikes. 
  • Unless you are an admin, do not revert anyone's edits unless they are your own. 
  • And lastly, don't whine when your edits are deleted. Expect your edits to be rolled back or further tweaked to fit the exact topic of the article on this wiki. That may not be how other wikis work, but that's how this one works. 

Blog Rules

  • All blog post must relate to Thomas in someway.
  • Keep it clean, guys. Fan-fiction is allowed, but any blogs with mature references (i.e. Shipping, Foul language or  discrimination) will be scrapped and the user involved will be kicked off this wiki.
  • Character Ideas and product recommendations are allowed as well. If the blog post is a diss to another user however,(even if it is a bad user) then the user will be either banned or striked. Or the blog post will be deleted.
  • Blog Posts are to be fun and entertaining. Please if you don't have anything nice to say about a blog post, please do not say anything at all. Just because you do more research or have more knowledge than another user doesn't make you better than them. 

Talk Page Rules

  • No content except vandalism, broken links, and profanity may be removed from any user talk page. Off topic posts may be removed from article talk pages.
  • While not mandatory, we are asking users to not change their signatures to only words. Signatures are required on talk pages to identify messages. And, if a user's signature doesn't link to their user page or user talk page, it makes it difficult to tell who left which post.
  • Article talk pages, like the template header at the top states, are there for discussing changes to the article, NOT for a discussion about the topic in question.
  • Do not rewrite messages, unless it is your section.

Chat Rules

  • Be cool. No dissing anyone. (Including yourself)
  • As the general rules say, no cussing or swearing.
  • Users have the right to say what they want on the chat as long as if it doesn't offend anyone.
  • No bathroom talk or mature references, for want of a better word.
  • Don't say Thomas is for babies because it's not. It's for anyone who wants to look at it.
  • Do not get on another users nerves. If they ask you to leave their message wall. Please do so. 
  • Chat mods have authority in chat boxes. Please do so if they ask you to leave a certain topic. They have rights to kick ban a user who doesn't comply with this rule.
  • Don't mini-mod. If you see a user breaking a rule, don't tell him. You go to an admin or chatmod and they will take care of it.
  • Please keep the chat for important and public matters. If you have something private to talk about with another user, schedule a time with the person and use the PM (Private Message) system.

Image Rules

  • Do not upload watermarked images.
  • Do not scan images and then upload them.
  • Do not upload pictures with added art.
  • No fan fic art is allowed, unless given permission by an authority. 
  • Do not use pictures from other wikis unless the authorities on THAT wiki give permission.
  • Make sure that what you name the image makes sense. In other words, do not name an image "jbf2354438fbcjw*Y78283eR%$&R&%.jpg", "Picture 004.JPG", "Capture 005.png" or similar. Name it after the article and what number image it is, for example, "TrustThomas32.jpg" or similar.

Comment Rules

  • Unregistered users have the right to comment.
  • As the general rules say, no cussing or swearing.
  • Users have the right to say what they want, as long as if it doesn't offend anyone.

Video Rules

  • When you upload videos please name them in this way: "Henry to the Rescue - American narration" or "Thomas and Gordon - British narration". For episodes with more than one narrator per territory name them as such: "Thomas gets Tricked - Ringo Starr American narration" or "Thomas gets Tricked - George Carlin American narration".
  • When uploading videos of music videos, just name it after the song. For example: "Never, Never, Never Give Up", "Let's Have a Race", etc. When there are different versions of the same song, see an admin for help or use your best judgement.
  • Don't upload duplicate videos.
  • Do not upload videos with watermarks or any similar features.
  • Do not upload "YouTube Poops" or any other type of fan video. The only videos allowed here are official episodes and music videos. (i.e. Not edited in any way.)
  • Use the American title for US narrations and the British one for UK/AUS narrations. For example, name an episode "Edward Helps Out - American narration" not "Edward and Gordon - American narration".

Admin/ChatMod Rules

As well as the above rules, admins have other obligations to help keep the Wikia fair and clean at the same time. These include, but are not limited to:

  • All admins are required to contact/warn "offending" members before blocking them. This will give the member time to voice their reasons for his/her actions. But so that order is kept, there will only be three warnings ("strikes") before the member in question is blocked for however long the admin in charge of the case sees fit. : This rule does not apply to users who spam, vandalize, swear, offend other users, users who are exceptionally rude, or unregistered users.
  • All active admins have to agree upon a rule and it's phrasing before it can be added. This way, all of the admins can add in their own ideas and no one can make the rules work to their personal advantage. If there is only one active admin, no changes may be made to the rules.
  • Before a user is granted admin status, all active admins have to agree upon the candidate.
  • Before a user is granted ChatMod status, all active admins and ChatMods have to agree upon the candidate.
  • An admin or ChatMod is considered inactive after being away from the Wikia for three months.
  • Should a member of staff be away from the Wikia for one year or more, that person will be removed from their position and be given Rollback/VIP status. Should they later return and wish to rejoin the staff, they need only ask and they shall be given their rights back.

Thank you for abiding by these rules and have a good time on this wiki. Staff
