Criminal Minds Wiki

This page is dedicated to outlining our blocking policy here Criminal Minds Wiki in the event that our Rules Policies are violated. These apply to the whole wiki and are definite. All the rights that are made for users on the wiki are allowed within a reasonable limit. If you have any questions, please contact an admin.

WARNING: It is up to the absolute discretion to the block-issuing admin to evaluate his/her case and make a final decision, and may not always follow our blocking policy when creating the block given the multitude of situations and scenarios for a rule-breaking user. Not knowing about these rules is not an excuse for breaking them. If you were warned for breaking rules, “I didn’t know” is not an excuse. It is required that all users read these rules before contributing to avoid any complications on the site.


Warnings and Bans

Stages

The wikia's warning system will provide multiple opportunities for editors to resolve any policy violations before they are banned. Editors who are found to be acting in malice are exempt from this warning system and may be immediately sanctioned.

  1. Reminder — Reminders are given for minor first-time policy violations and serve to officially notify the editor of this wikia's policies. This will not apply to severe offenses.
  2. Warning — Most of the time, after a user breaks a wiki rule, they will receive a warning. Some serious offenses will go without a warning, but with minor violations, a user will receive ONE warning.
  3. Ban — If a user has already received a warning and continues to violate the wiki policies, or they commit a serious offense, they will be blocked depending on the severity of the action.
  4. Extended BanIf you are blocked and harass administrators using other accounts or on other wikias to get you unbanned, your ban time will be extended and you will be banned on the alternative wikias or accounts.
  5. Indefinite — If you continue violating major rules, including repeated and severe vandalism or vandal attacks after being banned, or commit a heinous act against a user or this wiki, you will be banned forever on this wiki.

Duration

The sanction system comprises of eight different ban lengths that range from a one day bans to indefinite. The length of a ban will rely heavily on the severity of the violation, and it will be up to the discretion of the issuing administrator.

To Be Unblocked

The administration team understands that, sometimes, a ban may have been placed unfairly, may have been due to a miscommunication or misunderstanding, or maybe the time is ridiculously unreasonable, or you were blocked for the pettiest of things. However, some bans, especially given due to severe causes, may never be undone. Unless we break the Terms of Use (which we strive never to do), then no one, not even FANDOM Staff, can help you.

If you think one of the above reasons applies to you, contact Fearless Prince through his Community Central message wall, and formally submit your appeal. This is more than saying "I'm sorry!"; it also includes admitting your mistakes and why you did it, or explaining why you thought the ban was issued in error. Other excuses won't work. We are the only ones who can unblock you.

Unacceptable ways to get yourself unbanned is childish & hasty apologizing, rude demanding, multiple messages, and pleading & begging, all of which count as harassment. Other ways include repetitive comments on message walls of other wikis we administer (you'll be banned there, too), or not taking "no" for an answer if we deny your initial request for a repeal. Doing these methods only further the argument that you're undeserving of a repeal or your existing ban should be extended. Don't poke the bear any further. Usually, a ban placed is a ban deserved.

Otherwise, blocks are final, and will stay final.
