This talk page is for discussing the RuneScape:User treatment policy page.

Read and give your feedback please. --Whiplash 15:24, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Does no one care of the new policy so I can just impliment it? --Whiplash 21:54, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

The problem is that people will get into these arguements and brush off the policies, even when reminded. =| --Sαcrε (edit my sig) | (edit my user page) 01:51, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

I like it =). I expanded it, and added that the first thing users should do when they get into an edit war is to refer to the style guide for the solution. After all, many edit wars are just stubborn fights which could be resolved in a second by simply scanning the style guide. I put Whip's method as the alternative in the case of no other solution. Should we protect policy pages? People could still suggest additions/clarifications on their talk pages. They're pretty important, like the MediaWiki pages.

Oh, I also think that we need harsher blocks for violators of policies to make them more solid, especially for repeat offenders. Slayer-icon.png Gangsterls Divination-icon.png talk02:42, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Don't you think it's sad that I got a block for swearing to Clv309 when she said things like "I don't give a damn" "Fuck you" and "You're an idiot". Sad, just sad. The King of Fakes 03:57, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Neutrality[edit source]

I urge you to remember that Wikia is independent and neutral, people seem to be adopting a U.S approach to law on this page wheras U.S laws arent in effect for users in other countrys. So, in effect something that may be illegal in your country might not be in others countrys. Defence cape (t).png Rabbit FearArmadyl godsword.png 15:20, May 19, 2010 (UTC)

I've done a bit of research and the only penal code in the united states that specifically addresses civilian threats is California Penal Code Section 422, and even that doesn't cover threats unless they're serious which internet threats, or "interthreats" rarely are. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 15:44, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
All I've been able to find out is that someone can only be risk being arrested if they are threating to kill someone which wasn't mentioned in the deleted text. Defence cape (t).png Rabbit FearArmadyl godsword.png 15:55, May 19, 2010 (UTC)

"Additionally, charges may be pressed for making threats against someone; you can be arrested, charged, and even sentenced to jail time."[edit source]

this doesn't sound right, I don't think it is true either. Any law students out there able to answer this? Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 21:47, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

It depends upon your country. In America, technically it falls under terroristic threatening, which would be a violation of the Patriot Act, meaning yes, you could be prosecuted. The likeliness of it happening, close to none. HaloTalk 21:51, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
As per Halo, it is completely true. But it can get very hairy since there are so many different countries and policies/laws. Yes you can be prosecuted, but unless you want to spend tons of money over a lawyer with overseas affairs (if it is outside America) you will just dig yourself a hole. xScoobsx Talk Contribs 04:41, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
so, should this be taken out, or maybe shortened, or rephrased to not sound guaranteed.. or leave it? Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 21:54, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
Probably rephrased and shortened. Suppa chuppa Talk 04:29, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
