Hello and welcome to Fairy Tail Wiki. There are very few policies which apply across all Wikia. These can be found on the Central Wikia at their Policy Category.
In addition to those policies, there are policies and guidelines that have been developed on Fairy Tail Wiki to further our goal of creating an informative Fairy Tail database.
Policies apply to all editors. Fairy Tail Wiki strives to create a welcoming and fun environment for those who are civil to 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 Fairy Tail universe.
Policies need to be approached with common sense; adhere to the spirit rather than the letter of the rules, and be prepared to ignore the rules on the rare occasions when they conflict with the goal of improving the wiki.
Do not vandalize current articles. Continued vandalism will result in a block.
No offensive articles with sexual and vulgar language, or racist remarks.
Do not make pointless articles. If you see one, put the Request for Deletion tag on.
Please respect neutrality. Do not edit a closed discussion.
Ways to stay Neutral
Do not only provide one point of view, but all relevant viewpoints as necessary.
Support your article with actual facts.
Use a reliable source.
The User Page is your own personal page. On Fairy Tail Wiki, User Pages are generally used as a "user profile". They give information about a user and their activities on the wiki, ranging from what pages they edit, what they are editing, what rights they hold, what groups they are a member of, etc. They can also show your favourite pages, major contributions to the wiki and what project you are currently undertaking on the wiki.
No illegal, inappropriate or offensive content - You may place whatever you want on your own User Page, so long as it is not illegal, inappropriate, or offensive.
No user is allowed to edit another user's User Page without their expressed permission. A user may, of course, ask for help with their page, and you may offer your assistance on their Talk Page if you believe that they are having difficulty. If another user edits your User Page without permission, you can report it to an Admin. The only exceptions to this are Administrators and Policy & Standards Council members if they are editing the pages to do maintenance for the site or to fix something that violates policy.
No user is allowed to copy a characters article and paste it on their User Page- Similarly, no user is allowed to use categories for their User Page that are also used on Articles on the site.
No user is allowed to fabricate info that directly affects the site- For example, no user may say that they are an Administrator when they are not, nor can they claim to be a part of any guild that they are not in.
No user is allowed to copy any other user's user page in it's entirety (or near entirety)- This does not mean that you can't copy someone's user page set up or templates or anything like that, it means that you are not to take another users information and say that it is yours. Contact one of our Administrators, if you are unsure what this rule means exactly.
The user's Talk Page is a public place to talk with a user and to discuss that user and their activities on the wiki. Use it to ask questions and request help. If somebody leaves you a message on your Talk Page, you will be notified via a banner that will appear at the bottom of all pages when you next open a page on the wiki.
Always sign your posts on a Talk Page - You can do this by writing four tildes in a row ~~~~ which will automatically leave your name and the time and date of your post.
Do not alter any post that is not your own, unless it is to remove abusive content, or content that otherwise violates Fairy Tail Wiki or Community Wikia policy.
Use the Archive instead of deleting content - While users are allowed to conduct maintenance and clean-up of their Talk Page, content should not to be deleted from a user's Talk Page, except to remove abusive or innappropriate content. Instead, when a user's Talk Page becomes excessively long or when if they wish to get rid of the info, they may move it to an archive. See Help:Archiving talk pages for details on how to do this.
