Wiki Rules

  1. Inappropriate material, such as pornographic images, nudity, vulgar or excessive images/comments, are strictly prohibited here and will result in an immediate ban. No warning will be issued for this rule.
  2. Please limit profanity. If the characters on the series wouldn't say it neither should you.
  3. Do not erase material from pages unless you have sufficient references to prove that it is false. Removing content for no reason is unacceptable
  4. Do not write false, inappropriate, or "fanon" information on pages. This can and will result in a ban after one warning is issued.
  5. Do not make a page that is completely irrelevant to "The Fosters"/"Good Trouble" or the wiki. If you have a personal opinion use the blogging option instead of creating a new page.
  6. Do not create a page with false information for it will be deleted.
  7. Don't cyber-bully, I don't care if you think it's funny - it's not. No warning will be issued.
  8. No spamming! Spamming is posting the same thing over and over again, usually just to get achievement points. Commenting the same thing more than once and editing a page once every word just to get achievement points falls under the category of spam. If you are caught down this, we will warn you and put you on probation.
  9. If you want to delete a page, please see an admin.
  10. Trolling is prohibited. If you're not sure if your actions are trolling, then you are trolling.
  11. Shipping wars. If you don't like a particular pairing, it's best to stay off that page (unless you are reverting vandalism, or correcting grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.)
  12. Removing content based on your dislike of a particular pairing or any other topic is considered vandalism.
  13. Inserting sexually explicit content or pictures can get you banned anywhere from a month up to a permanent ban.
  14. Inserting something that has nothing related to the page is a chance of a block.
  15. Adding unneeded categories will get you blocked.
  16. Adding duplicate pages will also get you blocked.
  17. Do not remove templates from pages or remove sections of templates, even if the sections appear to be unused.
  18. Do not rename pages without evidence or admin approval.
  19. On "The Fosters + Good Trouble Wiki" HTML formatting is preferred over XHTML formatting. When formatting, please remember to close your tags (that's putting </small> at the end of the text you want smaller for those who are unsure) and follow the formatting already on the page.
  20. Spell out numbers in article sections, such as fifteen instead of 15. You will get two warnings before a three-day ban will be implemented. If the behavior persists, the ban will move to one week and so on. The only exception to this rule is in regards to templates.
  21. Not having read these policies is not an excuse.
  22. Do not post any episode links before the episode has aired.
  23. Do not give away any spoilers to other users on this wiki. Please respect other users wishes of not knowing.
  24. Do not edit somebody's profile page that is not your property. That is vandalism and adding unwanted commentary onto it.

Warning/Blocking Rules

Whenever a use breaks one of these rules, they will be issued a warning. If you disregard the warning and continue to go against these guidelines, and Admin will block you. The time period of a block can go from a few hours to permanently, based on the degree of your break. In extreme cases of trolling no warning will be issued and a block will be placed immediately.

  • All registered users will get warnings before being blocked. Every user is entitled to a warning although some exceptions will be made. If we can tell that you are continuously disregarding these rules and purposely going against them for "fun", we may not warn you.
  • Registered users are allowed to argue if they are blocked without a warning.
  • Admins cannot use previous blocks in a different category against a user who is misbehaving in another category. For example, if a user vandalizes they get a warning. If the same user curses in a comment, they get another warning because it is in a different category.
  • Any anonymous users who vandalize, post inappropriate comments or bullies anyone will be blocked. Anonymous users will only get warnings in certain cases, determined by an admin.
