Blocking rules are the rules for blocking people. First of all, a block is a option on the wiki that's only available to admins and higher as a measure to prevent abuse. Blocks are usually the same as banning users. Blocks restrict and prevent users from editing the wikia as an option, there are other options as well. You can set the time of a block what you want to be. You can even block yourself, but make sure to unblock yourself if set to a long period of time or if you don't want to unblock.
Rules for blocking
- You cannot block a user with no edits, as they have done nothing wrong. If they are violating chat rules, then ban them from chat, don't block them unless the offender is a chat/discussions moderator since users with these roles cannot be chat banned.
- There is an user named Music Video 123 who makes sockpuppet accounts. If any admin blocks him, you may not undo the block.
- His account got disabled and so did most of his socks so no need to block him. If you see an account made by him that isn't disabled you may not unblock them.
- If anyone has an inappropriate name, block them but they must have joined the wiki with at least 1 edit. If they do not have any edits, you may not block them. If they are violating chat rules, you may not block them,but you can ban them from chat.
- You cannot unblock anyone blocked unless you ask an admin or if the blockee has successfully appealed the block to prove the user hasn't done anything wrong. You will have to have a discussion with them. Make sure you discuss with the one who blocked them.
- If their account is disabled, you can unblock them.
- You cannot block another admin unless they're violating the rules. You can only block yourself for testing.
- You can only block an extra account if it is used to get over a block.
- If they used it to get over a block in another wiki, you don't need to block them unless they cause trouble in our wiki or the user is a troll.
- If you need to block someone, make sure to ask Cheetos8089, CoolKarim or Bestgamerever to remove their admin rights. If it's an emergency such as severe abuse of bureaucrat rights, contact Wikia staff instead to get the issue resolved.
- You need to issue a warning before blocking (except if they're sockpuppets or violated the COPPA rule).
- If the user is underage, block them until they turn 13 years old. Their age affects the block duration. (e.g. If somebody is ten years of age, you will block them for around three years.)
- If a user joined while underage but is not currently underage, no action will be taken.
- When blocking someone temporarily, allow them to still be able to edit their talk page. However if they violate this, take away this ability.
- You cannot block Wikia,WikiaBot or Default because they are staff members and their automated posts on User walls help keep track of users that enter the site
- If you've already been blocked but are still able to edit your talk page, do not abuse that right. If you break the profile rules (in the rules page), your block settings will be changed so you cannot edit talk page. Your block could also be extended.
