Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Wiki

This is a list of rules that an editor must follow, if he or she intends to edit here. If a rule is broken, and the editor has an account, they will be given a chance to explain themselves, and the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Wiki staff will decide on a punishment, most likely the one described in the rule, of the corresponding offense. Punishment will be at the discretion of the enforcing staff member. The Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Wiki staff retains the right to enforce any rule, even ones that are unwritten. Bottom line, if you think it may be unacceptable, don't do it. If you have common sense, you'll be fine. A regular user may not under any circumstances change any of the rules. A Staff member may only change a rule if he or she consults another staff member first. Major changes will require a full Staff discussion, with a majority to change. The policies of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Wiki are as follows:

Rule #1: Listen to the administrators[]

A staff-member or administrator will probably never force you to do anything, but rather tell you what not to do. The staff exists to maintain order and refusing to comply will have consequences.

Rule #2: Correctly attribute outside information[]

If work is copied from an external source, it must be properly attributed, with links to the original source if possible. If it is not possible to include a link, you must properly cite names, usernames, publications, or any other sources used.

Rule #3: No harassment, swearing, or drama[]

To put it simply, swearing and harassment are not allowed. If you feel that you've been wronged, tell an active administrator. Do not start pointless drama. This wiki does not need fights or pointless arguments.  If you are found guilty of picking fights, you will be immediately blocked.

Rule #4: No spam edits[]

Repetitive messages and redundant information fall under this category. It is not constructive and will eventually result in a block.

Rule #5: No vandalism[]

Do not purposely ruin any of the articles. This is an inexcusable offense that will result in an immediate block.

Rule #6: No multiple accounts[]

Also known as a form of sockpuppeting, if you have one account, keep it that way. Editors caught using more than one account to cause trouble can be banned or blocked.

Rule #7: No unacceptable usernames[]

Keep your usernames and avatars appropriate. Names that are entirely capitalized or inappropriate (such as, but not limited to, "CAPTAIN TOILET" or "Poop-Head") will result in a permanent ban.

Rule #8: No sensuality[]

Sexual and sensual references and/or innuendos outside articles will never be tolerated, no matter how harmless it may seem. Also, do not use this wiki to start dating other users. It is downright unacceptable and will result in a long block.

Rule #10: Home page[]

Any vandalism or spam to the main page will be met with a harsher punishment than an article. However, good edits to the home page are accepted. Before editing the home page though, the staff must be contacted to make sure that the edit is constructive.

Rule #11: No advertising[]

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Wiki does not allow for fan-made work in article pages. Posting links anywhere on the site to get views for a personal work is prohibited if the user is posting no work to the blog itself. The exact ratio as to how much work is posted, to how many links, will be discussed on a case-by-case basis.
