The following page lists Dead Island Wiki's main policies and guidelines, which are meant to be followed with no exceptions.
Dead Island Wiki does not condole vandalism, spam, or trolling in any way. This includes spamming for achivements (Ex. Creating a one sentence blog to gain an achivement; see Blog policies below). Doing any of these can result in anything from a day to a month block, and if the user persists, a 3 month block is in order.
Profanity (swearing) that is obscene and inappropriate for a minor age-group is heavily discouraged, and is blockable. If your user name contains profanity, you will be indefinitely blocked. This excludes anything that is found in the game (Ex. Quotes and Achivements),but has to be something that is considered an important or unique quote for that character.
No Sock Puppetry is allowed; at all. This includes creating a new account to evade blocks.
Fighting or Flame Waring
Harassing/attacking/flame warring with am user will lead to an admin stepping in and a block or a warning will be given.
Inappropriate images, for example, pornography, will be deleted and the user who uploaded it will be blocked. Using the wiki as a file-hosting service will lead to a warning and the images will be deleted.
Abuse of the feature (for example, adding incorrect categories to pages or editing an article twice without changing the content) will lead to a block, and suspension from the Leaderboard.
Enjoy editing and respect other users
Enjoy being on the Wiki, and have fun interacting with the community. Respect other users and their beliefs and opinions.
The blog policy has taken effect as of August 2011.
- Blogs must be more then a few sentences long.
- All blogs must meet a minimum medium-quality standard.
- Constant low-quality blogs will lead to their creator being blocked for 3 days.
