s I know alot of editors already do that, but long term wikian aren't the targeted audience this time it's adressed to new editors.

As new users, we don't really know who they are, sure they can just be well... normal editors, however they can also be potential trouble makers. With Discord they can easily have many information, like how template work etc...

For this exemple I will take the fictional user BlackDog44, lets say that he is a normal wiki editor. One day he broke with his gf or whatever and now decide the world should burn. He first start messing with the template and doing vandalisism. Now he decide to go in the fc/clan, however his RSN is different than his wikia account so no one saw him coming, he end up getting banned of course.

Since litteraly everyone could potentialy be vandalism, I think it should be important to require new users to put their RSNs and Discord name (assuming he use the server). My idea is that if he/her misbehave on one of the platform, he would get banned on the two other without exception to prevent highly potential flaming.

Also, if your account get hacked and the hacker decide to vandalism to get you banned, the ban should remain without exception (unless maybe if it's an admin) account banning can be faked. If the hack was genuine he/her should still remain banned because it's 2017, authentificator is thing for Wikia and Discord and it is your responasapility to have a password more strong than hunter2.

I hope these changes will pass to make the community slighty better! 1wDmkih.png  Manpaint of the RPU (t)(c) 16:44, June 7, 2017 (UTC)


Oppose - Unenforceable, and frankly yer wording smacks of RS:AGF violations. Pretty sure we've got people banned from the clan that are allowed to edit the wiki What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 16:49, June 7, 2017 (UTC)

What?? - There are a whole host of issues with this proposal:

  • How do you verify that people don't put someone else's RSN on their page? What if I made a new account, started to vandalize the wiki, and put my RSN as Gaz Lloyd? Or better yet, manpaint? I hope you aren't suggesting that we go verify every single editor's RSN, because that is way too much manpower needed.
  • How will you handle editors who don't play? Or those who don't use Discord?
  • The CC and wiki have different sets of rules for what gets you kicked/blocked. Violating one set doesn't necessarily mean you violate the other set, and blocking someone for that seems like an awful idea and definitely against the spirit of RS:AGF.
  • The main overlap for the rules all involve the RS:UTP. We've already decided that UTP violations in one medium will transfer over to other media. Extending this to medium-specific rules is unnecessary and overly punitive.

Requesting immediate closure - There is no reason to leave this up for a week, kill it, erase it even. Degenret01 (talk) 17:54, June 7, 2017 (UTC)

Requesting closure - Per everyone above. This should be closed under RS:SNOW. jayden 18:09, June 7, 2017 (UTC)

Closed - although RS:SNOW suggests that discussions should remain open for one week before closure I believe that an exception can be made in this case. Liquid and Ciphrius have made several good points above as to why this suggestion is not necessary or feasible. I don't believe that any further discussion is going to result in counter-arguments to these points or alter the result of this thread. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 18:33, June 7, 2017 (UTC)
