These basic rules apply to all of the wiki and are definite. They may be subject to change as administrators see fit.
Assume good faith
This rule is a fundamental rule of all wikis. Even when someone makes an edit that seems obviously pointless to yourself, assume that the user is actually attempting to improve the wiki. In the case that edits are clearly vandalism or that edits against the wiki's policy persist after a warning, see Vandalism, Spamming, and Banning.
Use correct grammar and spelling
In order to communicate information effectively and to maintain a professional touch, proper use of grammar and spelling is vital. Edits with poor grammar and misspellings may be undone, so please take a moment to re-read what you have written and use spell check.
Cite your references
Although citations can cause some frustration for the writer, the process is simple and necessary to differentiate between fact and fanfiction and can also help readers determine when exactly an event first occurred or was referenced in the series. In the case of real-world information, it is vital to distinguish fact from rumor and even vandalism.

This wiki has a policy against using fanart. Fanart and personal pictures are allowed on user pages, but do not belong in articles; fanart placed in articles will be removed without notice. Images depicting vulgarity, nudity, or other inappropriate themes will be removed and may result in user banning without notice at the admins' discretion.
User pages are personal spaces and as such are not subject to as many rules or regulations. As mentioned above, however, inappropriate images and content will be immediately removed and may result in banning without warning. Although some mild coarse language (i.e. 'hell', 'damn', 'crap') is permitted, but please remember that this series is directed primarily at children, and profanities are inappropriate for this wiki, even on user pages.
Vandalism, Spamming, and Banning
The following is a list of actions, including spamming and vandalism, that will result in banning:
- Use of explicit profanities
- Posting of vulgar, nude, or other inappropriate images
- Harassment of users
- Spamming links and advertisements not directly related to the wiki
This is not a comprehensive list and admin may ban users that behave in disrespectful or destructive manner.
