Welcome to the Gaiapedia official policy lists, which also links to guidelines and rules that contributors should consider following. Although some of these are not set in stone it would, however, be considerate to follow the basic principle of them, as to not cause disruption for the wiki. There are very few policies which apply across all Wikia. These can be found on the Central Wikia at Wikia:Category:Policy. A majority of it is common sense.
When repeatingly ignoring this wiki's policy, you may be blocked for a duration. Please read the Blocking policy for more information on blocking.
Changes to these policies should be proposed and discussed on this → forum topic.
