RuneScape talk:Block policy

This talk page is for discussing the RuneScape:Block policy page.

I have created this project page to hammer out procedures for blocking troublesome users. I think that we should list what warrants a block and how long each block should last, in the case of recurring offenders. Shadowdancer 19:41, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Blanking of pages
  • Vulgar remarks are being posted
  • Gibberish/nonsense
  • The language is being changed from English
  • False or deceptive information is being added to an article
  • Personal attacks upon any user
  • Content which advocates breaking of Jagex's 15 game rules
  • Advertising in any form (aside from websites listed under "External Links")

We probably won't have to block anyone except due to vandalism, so here is the current list from RS:CVU. Now, to decide which rules get which punishments. Woodcutting-icon.pngHyenastetalk 19:44, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Block & Recurring Offenders[edit source]

Since vandalism is the most likely reason to block someone, I think we should determine what each offense and block warrants. I propose:

  • First offence: 2 hours
  • Second offence: 1 day
  • Third offence: 7 days
  • Fourth offence: 1 month
  • Fifth offence: 1 year

And when we block someone, we make a formal entry on their talk page, such as: [Username], you have been blocked from editing RuneScape Wiki due to your recent vandalism. Because this is your [first, second, third, whatever] offence, the duration of this block is [duration]. Shadowdancer 19:50, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

And this would be for conventional vandalism. Violent personal attacks or severe vandalism would naturally result in longer blocks. We also need a nice template that is your example above. Woodcutting-icon.pngHyenastetalk 19:53, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
Any idea how to make a template from scratch? :| Shadowdancer 19:58, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
Yes, it's quite fun. Know any HTML? I learned some from looking at other templates. :D There's also a useful page about paramaters that can be set at metawiki. Woodcutting-icon.pngHyenastetalk 20:02, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
Well in an hour or three I'd like to move what we've worked on here to the project page.Shadowdancer 20:50, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
Can someone post the code for the template to be used on offending users' talk pages? Shadowdancer 04:50, 3 August 2006 (UTC)
Anyone know whats going on here? This policy doesn't seem to be followed. I assume this template was made at [[Template:Vandal]]. Also, what are Template:Test1, Template:Test2, Template:Test3, Template:Test4, and Template:Test5? Should they be deleted? -- Couchpotato99 (talk) (contribs) 00:36, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
