FANDOM


The forums are a place for people to discuss aspects of the games, the in-game world and the wiki. The following guidelines are expected to be followed when they are being used.

Before posting

  • Search the wiki and the forums before posting, as the answer may already be there.

Format

  • All threads must include {{Forumheader}} at the top.
  • Sign and date your posts.
  • Indent your comments.
  • Use a succinct, descriptive and accurate title.
  • Post in the right forum.

Conduct

See also: Dragon Age Wiki:Code of Conduct

Do not insult others

Insulting, belittling, or other offensive language is unacceptable. Any comments like this will be removed at the discretion of an administrator. Comments that insult anyone's gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethic group, race etc. is unacceptable and will be deleted without warning. A person or persons found to have repeatedly disparaged others may be blocked from the wiki. The egregiousness of such behavior will determine the length of the block. Some instances will be handled without warning.

Do not fight with others

While disagreements are inevitable, actively fighting, flaming or trolling other editors is not. Topics that posit an argument and/or offensive point of view or disrespectful and/or hostile posts directed towards other editors may be deleted without warning.

If you feel that someone is acting in an unacceptably hostile manner, do not engage them. Rather, report it to an administrator. They will use their discretion to judge what is acceptable behaviour. Editors who are found to have repeatedly fought with others may be blocked.

Stay on-topic

It is understandable that new ideas enter topics, but it is a good idea to keep topics focused on one central idea. If you feel that a new idea is interesting enough, start a new topic. This will also prevent the thread's initial point of discussion being lost. Topics that go too far off-topic may be closed or split and moved to a new topic. If you have any concerns or doubts, ask an administrator.

Do not edit others' comments

It is not necessary to bring forum pages to publishing standards, so there is no need to correct typing/spelling errors, grammar, etc. It tends to irritate the users whose comments you are correcting. However, if you come across clear vandalism you may remove it and should report the behaviour to an administrator.

Respect administrator instructions

Administrators may instruct an editor to modify their behaviour on the forums. An editor found or judged to be ignoring these instructions may be blocked.

Do not post spam

Spamming can be defined as posting multiple times about the same thing, starting multiple topics about the same thing, posting off-topic posts in other people’s discussion threads or topics, or providing links that have nothing to do with the forum, topic or subject at hand.

Anything deemed to be spam will be deleted without warning. Exactly what constitutes spam will be determined by the administrators. However, if editors start multiple topics on the same topic, post off-topic comments in other's topics, or make multiple posts about the same thing it is highly likely that this will be deemed spam. Editors who are found to have deliberately or repeatedly post spam may be blocked.

Piracy guidelines

Every user of this Wiki (both registered and unregistered) is obligated to follow the regulations regarding piracy related activities, that are described in Piracy guidelines.

Advertising

Advertising material that is not related to the wiki is allowed if:

  • The material is about the Dragon Age series.
  • It has not already been advertised in the past anywhere on the wiki.
  • The thread is not bumped solely to bring more attention to it, regardless of the manner it is bumped. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Comments by other users are allowed, but if these are for bumping the thread, it will be locked.

Users may be blocked for spamming if this action persists.

Locking threads

The following types of threads are likely to be locked.

  • Duplicate threads
  • Threads unrelated to the Dragon Age series
  • Threads that have wandered off-topic
  • Threads attempting to sell products
  • Attack threads (this includes attacks towards characters, games, editors, developers.)
  • Threads that discuss topics of an illicit or illegal nature

The unlocking of such threads is up to the locking administrator. Most decisions will be final.
