    PLB-wordmark.png

    The rules for this Wiki are as follows, please read them carefully:

    Essential Rules

    1. Essential Rules override every other category. Bear this in mind.
    2. Follow Miraheze's Terms of Service and Content Policy. Do not encourage others to break Miraheze's Terms of Service or Content Policy either. Punishment: 3 day block for every offense
    3. This cannot be stressed enough. You WILL be banned from this Wiki for broadcasting unwanted personal information of other users (doxxing) Punishment: 2 weeks ~ infinite
    4. Do not insult or bait other members of the community. Punishment: 3 days
      1. Do not insult or bait Miraheze Stewards or volunteers: 1 week block, possible global lock
      2. Do not make fun of a user's depression/mental health: 1 week block
    5. If you insult, vandalize, spam, threaten, create spamming-sockpuppets, type inappropriate information and insult other wikis, we will ask Global Sysops or Stewards to globally lock you. Punishment: Globally locked
      1. Do not declare "war" or start a "coup" against the Polandball Wiki. If you are unhappy with how the wiki is run, please say what you don't like about it and the staff will try to fix it. Punishment: 1 month block
    6. Discriminatory speech, especially discriminatory slurs are banned. This includes Anti-LGBT, Religious hate, Ethnic hate, Racism and many other forms of prejudice Warning, 3 day block, possible global lock
      1. Genocide denial is a special exception because of it's association with ultra-nationalism and the audacity of the action. Punishment: 1 week block for first offense, permanent block for repeated offense (denying the same genocide)
    7. You must be 13 years or older to be on this wiki. Punishment (if under 13): Banned until 13th birthday or until join date when the user is projected to be 13 (if birthday is non-disclosed)
      1. Side note, the ban may last for a bit while you are 13 if the latter is the case, since the mods won't know when you will turn 13.
      2. Pressuring a user to reveal their age when they declined to do so is prohibited - Punishment: 3 days
    8. DO NOT MINI-MOD. This means acting like an admin/chatmod even though you aren't one. If a person isn't behaving, tell the admins, they will resolve the issue, you don't need to type in all caps at them. Punishment: Warning
    9. Do not send false reports. The admins at Polandball Wiki volunteer at their job and you wasting their time is not helping anyone. Attempting to report a Polandball Wiki admin to the Global Sysops or Stewards because you are butthurt about being banned also counts. Punishment: 1 month per false report.
    10. Treat other users (especially admins) with respect. If your actions, despite not breaking any previously mentioned rules, have been deemed unacceptable by the admins (Ex: Sarcasm, Satire), you may be punished. Punishment: Warning
      1. Immaturity is an extension of this rule. If enough of your actions have been reported as immature, staff might vote on whether to punish you on it or not. Punishment: 6 months

    Rules about other wikis

    1. Do not raid other wikis on behalf of the Polandball Wiki. Punishment: 1 month block (first offense) or permanent block (second offense), if mods find out about the raid via discovery or complaint by another wiki; possible global lock
    2. Do not spread drama from other wikis to the Polandball Wiki, and vice versa Punishment: 2 week block
    3. While you can make your own wikis, please keep them as distinct from the Polandball Wiki as possible, as meta wikis (i.e. wiki about PB Wiki users) are prohibited (by us and the Miraheze Content Policy). Punishment: Founder gets permanently blocked until wiki is closed by Stewards.

    Uploading and creating images rules

    1. When uploading an image of a countryball, make sure the countryball doesn't use circle-tool, line-tool, curve tool, and copy-paste. The exception to this is if it is your Wiki avatar, although it is discouraged. Punishment: Deletion, then warning
      1. Brush tool has been a topic of controversy due to the rise of smartphone artists and photoshop users. We'll mostly allow it unless the image is too hideous to be associated with Polandball.
    2. If you upload an image, comic, or artwork that was made by another user (Miraheze, Reddit, etc.) other than yourself, please give credit to that user in the image's description. Punishment: Warning
    3. You can use any painting program that has the ability to draw countryballs and not just MS Paint (Paint.NET, Photoshop, GIMP, etc.).

For every offense after the first, the punishment is upgraded to the next default provided. Additionally, it may be altered or even elevated according to severity and previous contributions to the wiki.
    2. If said users are extremely suspicious (having little to no normal edits but a lot of rule breaking ones), the initial ban time may be elevated to the next tier or the tier after that.
