|This page is considered an official policy on the Green Lantern: The Animated Series Wiki.|
It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that everyone should follow.
Vandalism is any addition, removal, or change of content in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of a Wiki. Examples of typical vandalism are adding irrelevant obscenities and crude humor to a page, illegitimately blanking pages, and inserting obvious nonsense into a page.
Users in our community should recognize such acts and report them to the nearest admin or rollback. Vandalism should not be accepted on any wiki and should be dealt with in formal way, so we don't encourage the vandal to ruin more pages. Don't socialize with the vandal, you should "act", not "react". Reacting to such behavior will make the vandal feel as if has got what he came for: A reaction from the users.
Recognizing Vandalism[edit source]
This is a short list of multiple actions that can be considered as vandalism:
- Addition of nonsense, obscenities, or profanity to existing articles;
- Creation of new articles which are entirely off-topic nonsense;
- Deconstruction of someone else's hard work;
- Moving a page to a new, nonsensical title;
- Page blanking;
- Uploading inappropriate images, or replacing existing images with inappropriate ones.
