This policy in a Nutshell
  • Establish conduct expected in the chat
  • Establish crimes and associated punishments

Warriors Wiki is an online encyclopedia for the Warriors Fandom and, as a means to that end, an online community of people interested in building a high-quality encyclopedia about the Warriors universe, books and characters in a spirit of mutual respect. Therefore, chatrooms are a useful tool for forwarding that aim. Warriors Wiki's Discord server is the Wiki's official chatroom. In addition to being a chatroom, questions about the Wiki are often asked and answered, and both editors and members can collaborate on various projects, on-wiki and off. The server is also a quick place to report vandalism or issues with the Wiki and easily contact Warrior Wiki. However, certain ground rules have been established to ensure that everyone has a positive chat experience.

Rules

There is no set topic for the server. While mainly meant for Warriors discussion, wide range of topics can be discussed, but are to be kept in the appropriate channels. However, there are some rules that should be followed at all times.

  1. Behave yourself. Do not personally attack others or the authors of the Warriors series. Personal attacks and general rudeness is not allowed in this server. Be considerate to those around you and who you are talking with. Blind character hate is considered rude; criticism of a character is fine, but be considerate to other users when it comes to blanket statements like "this character sucks."
  2. No NSFW or otherwise explicit content. Inappropriate content also applies to your Discord username. You will be asked to change it if your username is deemed NSFW.
  3. Slurs and offensive humor are not tolerated. Any slurs whether in chat or in your Discord nickname or username will not be tolerated. Using words like “cancer,” or “autism” as an adjective is also not permitted.
  4. No advertising. Absolutely no advertising in this server or DMing people to advertise. It is disruptive to other users here to get DMs advertising other wikis/servers.
  5. Do not ask for personal information. Personal information includes age, location, birthday. Anything that may seem out of the ordinary should be reported to a staff member, but do not pry information out of others.
  6. Users in violation of COPPA will be kicked from the server. This Discord (and Discord as a whole) follows the COPPA act, which prohibits users below the age of 13 from having accounts online for safety reasons. If you reveal your age and refuse to leave, you will be kicked from the server.
  7. Do not engage in drama, or instigate drama. Joining this server just to start fights will not be tolerated; if you have a genuine concern you can ask #editing-help or #staff-contact, but blindly starting arguments will not be tolerated.
  8. This is not a roleplay server. The Clan and rank roles are just for fun and aesthetic purposes.
  9. Do not spam. Do not say the same thing several times because no one is responding to you.

Roles

  1. Be patient when asking for roles. Do not @ staff for roles.
  2. You can request any role in #roles except Stoneteller, Liege Lord, Leader, Deputy, Senior Warrior, Mediator and Guardian Cats. Please be patient when asking for a role; a staff member will come by and grant you one when they have the time.
  3. You are only allowed three aesthetic roles. The Clan and rank roles are for aesthetic purposes. To avoid hoarding roles, you may only have a limit of three. Politics, SupportClan and staff roles are excluded from this limit.
  4. Do not ask for access to any of the staff channels. Staff channels are kept for those listed in the roles above.
  5. Real world politics or other controversial issues can be directed to the #current-events channel, but not the general channel. Our politics channel, #current-events is a locked channel that you can gain access to through the Politics role. You must have been active in the server for one week in order to gain this role, and you must be aware that the channel does not exist to start arguments, it is for civil political discussion.
  6. Venting is to be kept in SupportClan.
  7. SupportClan is a locked channel for venting, which you can gain access to if you have been a member of the server for two months. Please be sure to watch your triggers and tag them accordingly, as SupportClan is supposed to be a safe place to talk and vent. If you abuse your right to SupportClan, your role will be revoked.

  2. If the warnings are ignored, and a rule is broken another time, the user will be kicked.
  3. After returning, and continuing to break the rules, the user will be banned. The duration can be discussed among staff members.
