This page is an official policy on Outward Wiki.

The Outward wiki policy is based heavily on Wikipedia policy, Wowpedia Policies and the YPPedia Policies and guidelines.


This policy is considered a standard to be followed by all users.

  • You are free to suggest an adjustment to this policy. Make sure, however, that your proposal meets the requirements set here.
  • Check the Policies page for a complete overview of all the policies for the Outward Wiki.

An account's access to edit Outward Wiki may be blocked if its name violates Outward Wiki policy.

Harassment and discriminatory names

User names should not have any racial or ethnic connotations. They should not be defamatory (or particularly carry any connotation whatsoever) towards any person, or any religious or ethnic group, or against any gender, sexual orientation, race, or creed.

Vulgarity

Names should not refer to sexual acts (or other inappropriate body functions) of any kind. They should not inappropriately refer to human anatomy or any bodily functions.

Names referring to drugs or other controlled substances, or any illegal activity, are forbidden.

Impersonation, multiple names, or trademarks

Impersonation of a Nine Dots Studio employee or another Outward Wiki user is forbidden. Sock puppetry (or creating/using multiple accounts) is also not allowed. Creating pages in the User namespace under the name of a user whose account does not exist (thus giving the appearance that the user exists) is not permitted.

Using registered trademarks in names is not allowed. Names which advertise a brand (or otherwise promote a certain product) are against policy.

If there are indications the account in question is intended for use in spamming, it will be blocked, and further accounts will be automatically blocked from editing.

Enforcement

Unless otherwise indicated, violations will result in the account being blocked from editing indefinitely, but the user can make another account to continue editing under a username which abides by policy.
