PCGamingWiki:Code of conduct

From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games

PCGamingWiki always strives to be inclusive and welcoming. To better ensure this happens, we expect all of our users to abide by this simple code of conduct. Failing to uphold these rules of basic decency may lead to you being banned from the wiki. Not having read them is not an excuse for not following them.

For more information on specific violations, please refer to our Moderation guidelines.

Essential rules

  1. Be nice
    • When using our wiki, whether to find out how to fix a game or to add more information on how to fix it - always be nice!
  2. Be considerate
    • Not every editor is experienced with MediaWiki. Not everyone knows everything about computers. If you see someone making mistakes, try to kindly point them out and offer to help!
  3. Be open
    • Other users will edit the content you insert into pages. Sometimes they may even remove it. If you feel your solution was better, open a discussion page and exchange your ideas!

Behavior

When using the wiki, whether reading or editing, always uphold these principles.

  • Pages are not the place to discuss any disagreements - discussions should take place on the forums, or relevant talk pages
  • Personal attacks are never OK
  • Harassment and hate will never be tolerated - behavior that is meant to incite hate towards others or harassment of others, whether on-site or off-site, will lead to an immediate and permanent ban
  • Hateful language in casual use or targeted at specific groups/people, even on personal pages or outside of the wiki, will also not be tolerated
  • Do not engage in editing wars: Edit warring

What to do

If you have noticed any users participating in the above behavior, or feel targeted, please notify a moderator or administrator as soon as possible. If you’ve been harassed by any of our users, on- or off-site, please notify us. We will do our best to address the problem, and in the least remove the user from the site.

If your dispute is with a moderator and their behavior, raise your issue with an administrator. Soeb is the first point of contact. If your issue is with an administrator's behavior, please notify one of the other administrators (Andytizer, Pridit).
