If a user breaks a rule, he/she may be subject to administrative action, as described below:
- Reminder – Users are reminded that they should reread the rules.
- Warning – Users are warned about the rule(s) they have broken (further infringements may lead to blocks).
- Restriction – Users are slapped with a restriction form, which will disallow them to perform actions that are stated on the form for a given period of time.
- Time out – Users are barred from the wiki for a very short period of time, usually a few hours to three whole days. This is to ensure users know the consequences of breaking the rules.
- Block – Users are barred from the wiki for a period of time. This is to ensure users have time to reflect towards their mistakes.
- Hearing required – Users are barred from the wiki but are required to report to their Message Wall at the Community Central for an explanation of the rules they have broken on this wiki. This is to determine whether or not a permanent or a global block is required.
- Permanent block – Users are barred from the wiki permanently, as a result of which they will not be able to return to the wiki any longer. A hearing is usually required before this can be put into effect.
- Global block – Users are barred from the whole of Wikia. Only Wikia staff members are able to perform this action. The local staff reserves the right to report the users to Wikia for this to happen.
Please note that the severity of the "punishment" depends on the severity of the violation. Also, users may appeal their blocks to be reduced, or even removed, by contacting the staff member who blocked them, provided that the reason given is appropriate and convincing.
