Please respect other users. Excessive rudeness towards another user will lead to a warning. Additionally, please do not attack the religion, traditional customs, beliefs, languages, or anything of cultural value to another user. Attacking above things will result in a warning.
Please avoid discussions about real-world politics as they can end up getting heated and can potentially cause division within users. Only politics about Motu Patlu (eg. the Mayor, Mantri Ji) are allowed.
All users are welcome to edit the Motu Patlu Wiki. However, vandalizing (removing all the content from a page, adding inappropriate information, trolling, spamming unnecessary photos, etc) is not tolerated. However, creating pages relevant to the wiki is allowed and even encouraged.
All users are welcome to add pictures or videos to the wiki. Please note that the pictures should be relevant to the Motu Patlu wiki.
Fanart is artwork created by fans of fictional things (games, shows, etc), and in this wiki's case, fanart of Motu, Patlu, etc. Fanart is only allowed in your profiles and blog posts.
Gifs are moving pictures. They are also allowed in the wiki pages as long as they are relevant to the shows.
All users are also welcome to upload videos to the Motu Patlu Wiki as long as they are appropriate. Any videos uploaded to pages should be relevant to Motu Patlu and anything affiliated with it.
Use of Language in the Wiki
The only words that are not allowed for use in this wiki are all "swear/curse/indecent words" due to the fact that swear words of any kind have not been used in Motu Patlu.
Users who swear will get reminders and warnings, regardless of whether they are normal users or users with "privileges" (admins, content moderators, bureaucrats, etc).
Note that the word "hell" is not considered a swear word in the wiki, and is allowed to be used, however, if that word is used for bullying and harassment, it will be considered as a swear word.
Page and Userpage Protection
The userpages of bureaucrats, administrators, content moderators, and indefinitely blocked users are protected to prevent vandalism. Users can request their respective userpage to be protected to prevent other new* and unregistered users from editing that userpage.
Pages that are often vandalized are protected so new* and unregistered users cannot edit them. Very "important" pages such as the Rules and Regulations page are also protected.
Please see Request for Promotion.
Getting Blocked and Warnings
If you break most rules in this wiki; you will be given a warning, however, we will assume that you made an accidental mistake. If you continue breaking the rules, you will be given a second warning, which will not assume anything. If you still break the rules, you will get the third and final warning, which will assume that you are breaking the rules on purpose. If the rule-breaking continues, you will be blocked for a certain amount of time.
However, if you vandalize the wiki, you will be given 1 warning. If the vandalism continues, you will be blocked for some time, or indefinitely. Harassment of another user will be met with a warning, and a block if it continues. If the severity of the vandalism is very bad, then the vandal will be given a permanent block.
When a user is blocked, they will no longer be able to edit the wiki, or in some cases, use their message wall. Their profile will have a message and template informing anybody seeing the blocked user's profile that they are blocked. The blocked user's page will also be protected to avoid vandalism. If the vandalism is very severe, the vandal will be blocked across the other language versions of the Motu Patlu Wiki (this wiki).
Please do not remove any warnings from your message wall as this information is useful for an administrator.
Sometimes, the Abuse filter can block innocent users, sometimes, an admin could accidentally block an innocent user. If it is found that the innocent but blocked user is indeed innocent, they will be unblocked and given an apology. An accidental block is not counted against the user when it comes to promotions or anything else.
Sockpuppetry is when a blocked user creates another FANDOM account to continue harming a wiki or simply be able to edit/comment the wiki again. If a sockpuppet is discovered, the sockpuppet account will be blocked and the blocked user controlling the sockpuppet will have their block extended.
(Note: Sockpuppetry is different from creating a new account/alternate account if the user creating the alternate account isn't blocked in the wiki)
Fanfictions are not allowed in the wiki unless they come in the form of blogs, comments, or discussion posts. Note that there aren't any current Motu Patlu Fanon wikis as of now.
Please do not share personal information on the wiki. This includes your real name, the name of your family members. phone number, and other sensitive information. All bureaucrats, administrators, and content moderators reserve the right to edit your user page if it contains something against the rules, including personal information. Please try to not use your real name (or just your full name) in this wiki. Use your FANDOM username instead.
- Before making any major change to the wiki (changing the wiki colors, navigation tab, changing the background, etc) all admins must ask each other and make sure they approve. It is also a good idea to consult any other active users on the matter.
- You are allowed to use multiple accounts in this wiki as long as they are not used to break the rules. However, your main account should confirm that the other accounts are theirs to prevent confusion and accusations of impersonating.
- *Once a new user has reached a certain number of days of being in the wiki and editing it, the protected page is available for them to edit.
- Enjoy your time in the Motu Patlu Wiki!
