Here you'll find some basic guidelines for using and editing on this Wiki.
   
These guidelines are subject to change. Keep in mind that these rules complement the general rules of wikia and the "Netiquette". Some points may be duplicates of the former which just means they are that important.
+
==Common sense==
  +
* Please be respectful towards each other. Don't harass or bully other users. If you don't like someone, just stop interacting with them. If you have an issue with the content of someone's user profile, just stay off of it. If it has NSFW content, notify an Admin.
  +
* Don't spam the comments or user message walls. Ideally article comments should be used to discuss the content of the page.
  +
** Please don't intentionally make comments vertically large with excessive pagebreaks.
  +
* Keep things Safe For Work. If you have to ask if it's okay to talk about, it probably isn't.
  +
* Advertising is not allowed.
  +
* The primary language of this wiki is English.
   
{{clr}}
+
==Editing==
== Comments & chat ==
+
* Please only create articles if the sole focus is a piece of content in the game. Pages created for the sole purpose of spamming will be considered vandalism. Pages created for stating opinions and posting fan-made content are considered blog post content. Articles made for these will be removed and the user notified about their blogs.
  +
**Fan Slimes in particular belong to the [http://slime-rancher-fanon.wikia.com/ Slime Rancher Fanon wiki]. Be sure to read their [http://slime-rancher-fanon.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Tutorial_Page guides on how to make preferred formats there].
  +
* Slime Rancher is an American game, so American English should be used for articles.
  +
* Stuck on how to edit and don't know how you can contribute? Check out this page [[w:c:community:Help:Contents|for tutorials]]. For a quick basic tutorial, see [[Getting started|here]]. Otherwise, feel free to contribute to pages by polishing them up, in particular spelling and grammar. Even if it's a small change, a small change can go a long way to improve the quality of the page's content.
  +
* Do try to be as accurate as possible with information you add to a page.
  +
* Remain objective. Try not to use "you" or "your" and try to refer to the user as "Beatrix" if keeping in-universe, or preferably "the player".
  +
* If there is a vandal, or a user providing unnecessary edits in general, you are free to undo them if necessary by going to the page's Edit History and clicking Undo. If an Edit war breaks out, chances are an Admin will notice them and put them to an end, but just in case you may want to alert one on the Discord or post on their Message Wall. A list of Admins is available [[Special:ListUsers|here]].
   
* Be nice to each other. Given the presumed target audience chances are there is a kid on the other side of the comment.
+
==Uploading files==
* 'Be nice' especially means not using any curses or swearing whatsoever.
+
* Remember that we aren't a file-sharing site and shouldn't be used as one. If it is not going to be used on the wiki then it shouldn't be uploaded. If files flag up as unused, they will get deleted. If you don't want a file to get removed, use it on the site!
* This is an international wiki and people from many different countries are using it. Nonetheless the language of choice is English. If you want to discuss something in your native language visit the wiki of that particular language or use the whispers in chat.
+
**Wiki use includes: an article, a userpage, a blog, or on a comment to get a point across.
* Avoid pictures in comments if possible. Only use them if you really need them to get your message across.
+
* When taking screenshots for an article, please use the game's Screenshot button which is accessible from the Pause menu; it takes a clean image in a PNG format and removes the in-game HUD, giving focus to the subject. The game also has the ability to create GIFs if necessary.
* Don't spam another persons message wall.
+
**If an image is to be used in an article, please ''do not'' use the default names that the game creates them with (Example: '''SlimeRancher-2017-12-21-12-22-22-91.png''') and give them descriptive filenames. If a lot of images on a page have similar names, it can be difficult to track them down or edit articles involving a large number of images.
  +
**This does not apply to userpages, article comments and blogs; they can still be uploaded with the default names as long as they are not used in an article.
  +
* No advertisements.
  +
* Any and all pictures NSFW and unsuited for minors will be deleted. If necessary, Wikia staff may be informed.
   
{{clr}}
+
Speaking of which...
== Media ==
 
   
* This wiki isn't a file sharing site. They will be checked on a regular basis and if they aren't in use on this wiki they will be deleted.
+
==Discord==
* When you upload a file give it a meaningful and short name. E.g. 'PinkSlime_Ranch.png' instead of '13092016slimerancherscreenshot.png'
+
We have a Discord which anyone can join. But as a measure against spam, you will have to wait ten minutes until you're allowed to post.
* When you've got a updated version of a file go to that files page and use the 'replace' option. That way the reference all over the wiki to that file stay intact.
+
* Swearing is not allowed.
* No pictures or videos which advertise a LP channels on VOD (video on demand) providers.
+
* Use the channels appropriately.
* Any and all pictures or videos containing imagery unsuited for minors will be deleted and depending on the content will be brought to the attention of the wikia staff.
+
* Don't spam.
  +
* Nothing NSFW.
  +
* No insulting or attacking other users.
   
{{clr}}
+
Repeatedly breaking those rules will result in you being banned from the server.
== Editing ==
 
 
* When editing be sure you know what you are doing. There are many [[w:c:community:Help:Contents|tutorials]] around including [[Getting started|this wiki]].
 
* Don't start editing and dumb of the work on another person by saying "I don't know how to do it". If you have a suggestion write a comment on that page and ask for someone to do it.
 
* Provide a summary of why or what you edited. This won't be required if its a minor edit but would be nice if provided nonetheless.
 
* Use the preview feature before publishing anything. Look through it if there are any major mistakes. Try to avoid more edits than necessary e.g. five different edits for five spelling mistakes.
 
* Keep your coding clean. Not only should the text you can see on the page be organized the code behind it should be as well. Scroll down on [[How_to_edit|this]] page to see an example.
 
 
{{clr}}
 
== Misc ==
 
 
* If there is a troll on this wiki or just unwanted edits in general you are free to undo them if necessary. If an 'editwar" unfolds chances are an admin will notice them and put them to an end. Whatever you do, don't go insulting the troll / editor. If you want to do something for your conscience search for an admin on [[Special:ListUsers|this page]] and notify them on their message wall.
 
* Repeated violation of these rules will result in a temporary ban ("timeout"). If necessary the wikia staff will be informed who'll decide if further actions need to be taken.

Here you'll find some basic guidelines for using and editing on this Wiki.

Common senseEdit

  • Please be respectful towards each other. Don't harass or bully other users. If you don't like someone, just stop interacting with them. If you have an issue with the content of someone's user profile, just stay off of it. If it has NSFW content, notify an Admin.

  • Keep things Safe For Work. If you have to ask if it's okay to talk about, it probably isn't.
  • Advertising is not allowed.
  • The primary language of this wiki is English.

EditingEdit

  • Please only create articles if the sole focus is a piece of content in the game. Pages created for the sole purpose of spamming will be considered vandalism. Pages created for stating opinions and posting fan-made content are considered blog post content. Articles made for these will be removed and the user notified about their blogs.
  • Slime Rancher is an American game, so American English should be used for articles.
  • Stuck on how to edit and don't know how you can contribute? Check out this page for tutorials. For a quick basic tutorial, see here. Otherwise, feel free to contribute to pages by polishing them up, in particular spelling and grammar. Even if it's a small change, a small change can go a long way to improve the quality of the page's content.
  • Do try to be as accurate as possible with information you add to a page.
  • Remain objective. Try not to use "you" or "your" and try to refer to the user as "Beatrix" if keeping in-universe, or preferably "the player".
  • If there is a vandal, or a user providing unnecessary edits in general, you are free to undo them if necessary by going to the page's Edit History and clicking Undo. If an Edit war breaks out, chances are an Admin will notice them and put them to an end, but just in case you may want to alert one on the Discord or post on their Message Wall. A list of Admins is available here.

Uploading filesEdit

  • Remember that we aren't a file-sharing site and shouldn't be used as one. If it is not going to be used on the wiki then it shouldn't be uploaded. If files flag up as unused, they will get deleted. If you don't want a file to get removed, use it on the site!
    • Wiki use includes: an article, a userpage, a blog, or on a comment to get a point across.

  • No advertisements.
  • Any and all pictures NSFW and unsuited for minors will be deleted. If necessary, Wikia staff may be informed.

Speaking of which...

DiscordEdit

We have a Discord which anyone can join. But as a measure against spam, you will have to wait ten minutes until you're allowed to post.

  • Swearing is not allowed.
  • Use the channels appropriately.
  • Don't spam.
  • Nothing NSFW.
  • No insulting or attacking other users.

Repeatedly breaking those rules will result in you being banned from the server.
