FANDOM


These rules are for the wiki's sake and for everyone's safety. Please do not break these rules otherwise you will be forbidden from editing and/or commenting, and a possible Blocking.

Main Rules

These rules must be followed no matter what circumstances.

  • "I did not read the rules" is not an excuse.
  • Do not request codes from anyone on the wiki anymore.
  • Any vandalism blocks you infinitely, be careful before you do anything!
  • Please, no impersonation of any other users on the community or related communities.
  • Please don't advertise on this wiki at all unless with bureaucrat permission.
  • Please don't "farm" or "grind" edits, messages, or blogs for achievements/badges. Null edits, useless messages, and blogs for no reason will result in a warning for spam (null edits) or an immediate block/interrogation for useless messages and blogs.
  • Respect everyone. Also respect that the wiki is supposed to be child-friendly, so please don't curse or pseudo-curse as it's disrespectful.
  • Do not spam, vandalize, hack, or troll on the wiki, or any of the relating websites to this site.
    • Spamming is when you have to comment on something that's useless, repetitive, short, or has a simple opinion (not like an explanation. You would need to elongate your opinion on a comment for it to count!).
    • Vandalism is simply anything that is disrespectful.
    • Hacking is using code for an evil purpose.
    • Trolling, well you get the idea, but it is disrespect in any way towards anything existent online.
  • Add bias/opinion only on your User Profile, Discussions, Live Chat, Forums, and Message Walls.
  • Do not give out personal information, this is dangerous.

Editing

  • Ask a SYSOP permission to upload an article or video first.
  • Edit only your own profile, unless you are a staff member.
  • Have full "right judgement" when submitting your edit, as anything from there can be purged and punished.
  • Fix all typos you see.
  • See more in the Manual of Style for more information, a link to it is below on this page.

Image Rules

  • Keep them child-friendly.
  • Absolutely no art theft! Images that aren't yours shouldn't be posted unless for the good of the wiki.
  • All images here that you post become property of FANDOM.
  • Keep all images uploaded to be Prodigy-related as of 2019. Any images posted outside of profiles that aren't prodigy-related will be subject to being deleted. Keep off-topic images on your profile only.
  • You must ask administrators permission to add unrelated/doubt-able images.

Prodigy Math Game Wiki Staff Roles and Guidelines

Rollbacks

  • Rollbacks have the ability to instantly undo edits.
  • When using this right, contact an administrator (unless you are one) if a big edit has been made or there's a problem you need help with for your role.
  • If someone made a null edit, PLEASE revert it/undo it using your power. Give the user a message warning.
  • You have permission to give other users warnings via message walls about the following topics:
    • Null edits, only adding or deleting spaces or doing nothing to a page.

Chat/Discussion Moderators

  • Chat and Discussion Moderators are able to delete comments and ban regular users from chat.
  • Do not delete comments just because they are contrary to your beliefs.
  • Unless they absolutely need to be deleted, do not delete them. More comments make the wiki seem friendly, and not like a deserted wasteland.
  • You have permission to give other users warnings via message walls about the following topics:
    • Severe spam, using repeated spam or spam for harshness.
    • Disobedient to Commentary Rules, if there's commentary rules a user doesn't follow, warn them.
    • Message farming, or simply and randomly landing a message to another user to intentionally earn an achievement badge.
    • Blog farming, or adding blogs that have uselessness or are renegades to the rules.

Sysops

  • Sysops are Content Moderators, Administrators, and Bureaucrats.
  • When starting big projects, notify at least half of the staff (currently just tell at least three other staff members).
    • If they do not wish for the project to continue, do not continue with it.
  • Do not change the wiki theme without permission of our bureaucrat.
  • You have the right to warn others about anything if they disobey the rules.

Bureaucrats

  • Bureaucrats are the highest rank on a wiki, excluding FANDOM Staff.
  • This applies to the bureaucrats, and these laws still are unable to change, even though their bureaucrat ancestors and predecessors have defied them.

Maintenance Category Help

There are a group of categories reserved for the use of making the articles with them better in specific ways. There are currently many, but with the power of our strong and strengthening community, these maintenance categories should be deleted from articles that are helped out and no longer deserve the categories. New updates to the Prodigy game might spring up tons of these, so we need your constant support and readiness to work for the wiki's temporary completion.
