Civilization Wiki
Advertisement

Our wiki is intended to be a place for all Civilization players to come and collaborate, sharing their knowledge, bits of wisdom, experience, and everything else related to Civilization. To that end, we'd like to establish some basic rules so that we can all get along:

General attitude
  1. Editors should be civil towards each other. Disagreements should be resolved by talking and finding a consensus (or compromise, if it proves elusive), rather than insults, personal attacks, or other uncivilized methods.
  2. Assume good faith. An edit that seems disruptive at a glance might actually be an inexperienced editor or an expert one making an error. In these cases, helping them out by providing guidance or correcting the error and dropping them a quick note will help grow the community and distribute the editing load.
  3. Let the rights holders do their jobs. Also called backseat moderating, if an actual bad faith editor appears, just undo their edits and report them to the administration. They'll take it from there.
Editing
  1. Do not vandalize, spam, or otherwise edit disruptively.
  2. Edits should be made in plain English. Keep it understandable.
  3. Try to use edit summaries. Minor edits can be understood at a glance, but larger revisions should be summarized. Just a few words can help understand why a change was made and help organize revisions.
  4. Avoid profanity. While curses have their place in everyday speech, they tend to disrupt the flow of articles and get in the way of the wiki.
  5. Avoid excessive deletions. Most content can be successfully retooled and integrated in the wiki, rather than outright deleted.
Discussion board
  1. Be nice and treat people with respect. Keep discussions civil and be open-minded about differing opinions.
  2. Threads and posts that solicit upvotes will be deleted.
  3. Off-topic conversations may be deleted, so try to choose the right category.
  4. Impersonation of other users or famous people will not be tolerated. If you have been banned and return on a new account, your posts will be deleted and your new account(s) will be banned.
  5. Spamming, trolling, or vandalizing of any kind will be deleted and will lead to your account being banned. (For our purposes, spamming is defined as creating threads that have no relation to the games covered on this wiki, creating more than one new thread in a 24-hour period, or creating more than two consecutive threads in a 72-hour period. You can always edit a previous thread if you have more to say.)
  6. Notice something that doesn't seem right? Or do you just have a question? Ask for help. First, ask an administrator or make a separate discussion post. As a last resort, contact Fandom staff through "Give feedback" on the Settings screen.
Blocks
  1. Rights holders may block users repeatedly violating these rules, in particular those who demonstrate hostile or disruptive behaviors and show no sign of improvement after warning.
  2. Block durations start at 24 hours, and graduate to 3 days, to 1 week, to permanent (bans). In severe cases, the rights holder may elect to skip to longer or even permanent blocks.
  3. Permanent blocks may be reviewed after one month, by another rights holder.

If you have questions about or would like to suggest changes to any of the rules, please contact one of the administrators.
