| This page documents an official Avatar Wiki policy.
It is a widely accepted standard that should normally be followed by all editors.
The channel for Avatar Wiki on the freenode network is
#wikia-avatar. You can find help from an administrator here or you can just chat with other Avatar Wikians from our diverse community.
- No personal attacks, insults or other forms of harassment. Any form of behavior that others on the channel find offensive or hurtful is discouraged. Common sense is emphasized.
- Operator abilities may not be given out on a temporary basis, and requests to this end are not permitted. Operator abilities on the channel, which include the ability to remove a user from the channel and ban them from returning, are generally only given to administrators.
- No bouncers are allowed when the owner has a history of abuse. Anyone else is allowed to use a bouncer, but if the owner has a history of abuse, the bot or bouncer will be kicked unless the owner is present. Any bot intended to be used on IRC must first pass a consensus to establish community approval.
- Be mindful of other users. Not everyone is comfortable talking about certain topics. If another user brings up an issue, be respectful and consider changing the topic or moving it to private message.
- Sexual comments must not be targeted towards any user under the age of sixteen (16). There is a time and a place for everything, and while we encourage freedom in communication, targeting users who are known to be under the age of sixteen with sexually explicit material or comments will not be tolerated.
That's it! Other than common sense, there are no other restrictions, including on topics of discussion or on the right of users to keep and post logs and transcripts of what has been said on the channel. Users may talk about any subject in any way they wish if no user participating on the channel at the time indicates, with justifiable reasoning, that they are uncomfortable with the subject or the language being utilized.
If a user is found to consistently disregard channel rules, the user will be warned on the channel, and continued unacceptable behavior will result in the user being kicked or temporarily banned from the channel.
When a user is blocked on Avatar Wiki that automatically means a block on IRC for the same duration of the wiki block.
The IRC channel may be accessed via the following:
