When sanctions are issued

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wikia.

No sanction may be applied to a user for not following a guideline, as guidelines are only present to resolve disagreements between users. Sanctions may be applied to users who do not follow a policy. If they are contributing in good faith, this should only be done after they have been warned and notified of the policies, such as by a message placed on their talk page or message wall.

Do not remove staff warnings from message walls

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wikia.

Editors should not remove any issued warnings from their message wall, as this serves as documentation regarding what actions have previously been taken for policy violations and ensures consistent application of wiki policies to all editors. Removing message wall warnings may result in a block or an extended block if the editor is currently blocked.

Types of warnings

The following is a guideline on the Roblox Wikia.

The wiki's warning system provides multiple opportunities for editors to resolve policy violations before they are blocked. Editors who are found to be acting in malice are exempt from this and may be immediately sanctioned.

  • Reminders are given for minor first-time policy violations and serve to officially notify the editor of the Roblox Wikia's policies. For instance, a new editor who creates a page that is not in accordance with the notability policies will typically receive a reminder of the notability policies when being notified of their article being moved/deleted.
  • Warnings are given for repeated violation of minor policies or for first-time violation of major policies. As such, an editor personally attacking another user in a forum post will qualify for a warning or a final warning instead of a reminder.
  • Final warnings are given after repeated or severe policy violations. Final warnings may be in conjunction with a short-term block, and editors will be warned that any violation of the discussed policy will result in a longer block. Editors who are found to be acting in bad faith, such as in instances of vandalism, may not receive a reminder or warning for a first-time policy violation but may instead receive a final warning.

Types of blocks

The following is a guideline on the Roblox Wikia.

The sanction system comprises of various block lengths that range from a one-day block to an indefinite block. Editors receive a message wall post if they are block that describes why they are blocked and lists the specific contributions that caused the block. Though the length and parameters of a block will be up to the discretion of the issuing administrator, the following are guidelines for appropriate block lengths. Editors may have their ability to post on their message wall revoked if they abuse it during the block (e.g. using their message wall to personally attack the administrator who blocked them, posting spam on their message wall).
