From Home
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Everyone will be held to the same exact standard, there will not be any double standards or special treatment for friends of staff or webmasters. Staff will deliberately weed out poor users out of the wiki network and banish them, staff will deny wiki migration requests for communities that we know will not fit into our culture. Users who behave in a toxic manner will be swiftly kicked out. There will not be a single toxic wiki community given free hosting on this network, toxic communities will be quickly asked to leave to find alternative hosting.

Any unwritten or normally acceptable social norms not listed below will also be enforced at Amazing Wikis Staff discretion. The spirit rather than the literal transcription to the following will be enforced across the network. This includes, but not limited to:
