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 rules==
  +
* Don't spam. This includes comments and user message walls.
  +
** Generally this means keep your posts relevant. Posting gibberish, multiple talk pages having nonsense comments written on them in a short space of time, a comment with image spam to intentionally make the page longer etc. Comments of this nature will either be edited or removed entirely.
  +
* Keep swearing to a minimum.
  +
* Keep things Safe For Work; i.e don't post lewds, gore, or anything taboo.
  +
* Don't harass or bully other users. If you don't like someone, just stop interacting with them.
  +
* Don't vandalise pages on the wiki or edit other users' profiles. Doing so can result in being blocked from editing; the length of time dependant on how severe the vandalism is.
  +
**If you have an issue with the content of someone's user profile, just stay off it. If it has NSFW content, notify an Admin.
  +
* Don't advertise.
  +
* The primary language of this wiki is English.
   
{{clr}}
+
==Uploading files==
== Comments & chat ==
+
* 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.
  +
**Wiki use includes: article, a userpage, a blog, or on a comment to get a point across.
  +
* When taking screenshots for an article, use the game's Screenshot button which is accessible from the Pause menu; it takes a clean image and omits the in-game HUD. The game also has the ability to create GIFs if necessary.
  +
* No advertisements.
  +
* Any and all pictures NSFW and unsuited for minors will be deleted. If necessary, Wikia staff may be informed.
   
* Be nice to each other. Given the presumed target audience chances are there is a kid on the other side of the comment.
+
==Editing==
* 'Be nice' especially means not using any curses or swearing whatsoever.
+
* If you have never used a wiki before and don't know how to edit, [[w:c:community:Help:Contents|see here for tutorials]].
* 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.
+
* Do try to be as accurate as possible with information you add to a page.
* Avoid pictures in comments if possible. Only use them if you really need them to get your message across.
+
* Please try to proofread and preview your edits before submitting.
* Don't spam another persons message wall.
+
**Does it fit in with the rest of the page?
* Don't post 'spam' (e.g. it has nothing to do with the topic) comments on walls / comments older than a month.
+
**If changing the layout of a page entirely, does it look presentable?
  +
* Do not add unnecessary categories to pages. Your profile and blog posts in particular won't need them.
  +
* Remain objective. Try not to use "you" or "your", refer to the user as "the player", or "Beatrix" if keeping in-universe.
  +
* Please only create articles if it is related to the game.
  +
**New, unrelated pages with total garbage will be considered vandalism.
  +
**Opinions, fan-made slimes, fan-made areas, and theories about the game 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].
  +
* If there is a vandal, or a user providing unnecessary edits in general, you are free to undo them if necessary. 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]].
   
{{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]].
+
==Discord #music channel==
* 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.
+
We also have a #music channel on the server which utilises a bot called @FredBoat♪♪ to play music.
* 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}}
+
* Using @FredBoat♪♪ is only allowed on #music.
== Misc ==
+
* Be mindful of other users (that means you shouldn't play stuff like 10 hour videos or meme spam).
+
* If you don't like the song currently played, don't skip it. Just deafen yourself instead.
* 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.
