Toontown Rewritten Wiki does not tolerate vandalism as we aim to provide accurate, applicable and constructive information on all of our articles. It is against the policy for a user to vandalise the wiki, and doing so will result in a caution or block.
Types of block
- A verbal caution is the lowest level of action taken towards vandalism. The contributor will be warned about their action(s) by an administrator/moderator on their talk page. The contributor will not receive a block. If a contributor has previously received a verbal caution, they are susceptible to a ban.
- A caution is a block which consists of under a day. A caution can only be issued once, therefore the next level of action will be issued if the vandalism persists.
- A strike is a block which usually consists of over a week. The user may be issued a strike without caution in some circumstances.
- An indefinite (infinite) block is the highest level of action taken by an administrator/moderator towards vandalism. They are only imposed if a user fails to comply with the policy on multiple occasions. You may contact an administrator if you wish to discuss the matter.
- Vandalism will usually result in a caution being issued before a strike is imposed, unless the user has not previously contributed. If the vandalism is considered unintentional by a member of staff, the user will only be given a verbal caution.
- Persistent vandalism will result in a strike being issued. If the vandalism persists, an indefinite block will be issued. The blocking administrator/moderator will impose the appropriate block length towards the user.
- Severe vandalism may result in an indefinite block. The blocking administrator/moderator must determine whether the vandalism is severe.
- Vandalism will result in a block being imposed. If the contributor has not previously made a contribution, they are susceptible to an extended block. If the vandalism is considered unintentional by a member of staff, the contributor will only be given a verbal caution.
- Persistent vandalism will result in either a block or indefinite block being issued. The blocking administrator/moderator will impose the appropriate block length.
- Severe vandalism will result in either a block or indefinite block being issued. The blocking administrator/moderator must determine whether the vandalism is severe.
Vandalism may be deemed unintentional if the user was seemingly unaware of causing disruption.
- If the user has a history of authentic edits; no action should be taken, except a verbal caution. If the vandalism persists, it may be considered intentional.
- If the contributor has a history of authentic edits; they are usually verbally warned without further action. If the vandalism persists, it may be considered intentional.
