From Arknights Terra Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Administrative policies describe rules for the blocking of users, page deletion and protection as well as other rules for the Arknights Terra Wiki's administrators.


Editors whose contributions are clearly disruptive to the site or who fail to behave appropriately towards other contributors may be blocked. The following are the possible reasons for blocking, which are counted as "strike(s)" to influence the blocking duration.

  • Vandalism (1 or 2 strike(s) depending on the severity)
  • Personal attacks or threats towards other editors (2 strikes)
  • Violating site policies (1 to 3 strikes depending on the violation)

Usually, the block duration is:

  • One week for the first strike
  • One month for the second strike
  • Permanent for the third strike


  • Pages which do not fulfil the content criteria should be deleted.
  • User pages may be deleted at the request of the user they belong to.

Page protection


Most pages should remain unprotected and allow editing by both anonymous and registered users. Protection is generally only applied to:

  • Critical parts of the site. This includes pages like the main page or widely used templates.
  • Articles which are frequently targets of vandalism.
  • Pages which are the "battleground" for an edit war. If a set of editors repeatedly reverts each other's changes, an administrator may protect the page to encourage them to resolve the dispute in a different manner (i.e. by discussion as appropriate).

User pages may be protected at the request of the respective user.


In general, page protection should only be applied as long as necessary. Especially articles should only be protected for a reasonably short timeframe.

Rules for administrators

  • If an administrator is involved in an editing dispute, he or she should not use admin abilities or status to solve it. Ask another user or admin to mediate.
  • Administrators are allowed to undo each other's administrative actions. However, it is expected that the one who reverts an action explains the reason for the revert. In addition, if the admin whose action was undone disagrees with the revert, he or she should contact the reverter and discuss instead of simply reverting the revert. If consensus cannot be reached, a third admin should be asked to mediate.
