Some pages may be protected due to continued vandalism or continued insertion of incorrect information. They may also be protected to preserve the integrity of the wiki. The level of protection will increase as damage done to the page increases.

User Policy

User Page

All registered users of K-ON! Wiki are automatically given their own User Page and User:Talk Page. However, with this privilege, come some basic rules that must be obeyed.

What is a User Page?

  • The User Page is your own personal page. On K-ON! Wiki, User Pages are generally used as a "user profile". They give information about a user and their activities on the wiki.

Rules of the User Page

  • No illegal, inappropriate or offensive content
  • Personal images must be linked from an actual image host, failure to adhere to this will result in the image being deleted.
  • Videos must be embedded, not uploaded.
  • No excessive editing of the User Page in comparison to other pages and articles. K-ON! Wiki is not a social networking site and it is expected that users who wish to edit regularly do not focus solely on their User Page.

User:Talk Page

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 top of all pages when you next open a page on the wiki.

Rules of the User:Talk Page

  • You must respect the owner of the Talk Page at all times. Try to be civil.
  • Always sign your posts on a Talk Page by writing four tildes in a row ~~~~.
  • Do not alter any post that is not your own, unless it is to remove abusive content, or content that otherwise violates K-ON! Wiki or Wikia policy.
  • Headings, use appropriate headings to set out the topic you wish to discuss.
  • Add comments to the end of the page, unless a new section has been started underneath the topic you are replying to.
  • Note - Removing Warnings does not whitewash your reputation and it demonstrates an unwillingness to comply with the rules and a disrespect toward the Admins and the community as a whole.

Discussion

Discussion is an important part of K-ON! Wiki. It is used to discuss any improvements to the page. Discussion should be used before making major changes to articles, changing images, or moving a page.

Comments

  • User with inappropriate comment will soon be blocked, warned and deleted.
  • User which advertise other than K-ON! related subject in the comment, will be deleted by the admin.
  • User with off-topic comment will be advised to go to the Help Page or advised to go to the Wiki with the closest topic.
  • User uploading unrelated image or other media will be warned and later deleted, unless they are asking help or about to discuss some topic.
  • User who are still unable to understand could ask the current admin or experience user for further explanation. Users who does not follow above rules will be warned, a further action of misbehaving will lead to user blocking.
