FANDOM



As long as the rules and policies are well acknowledged and understood by the wiki's audience, the Angry German Kid Wiki will always remain safe, peaceful and well organized. Before editing, you should know that it's acceptable to use common sense as you go about editing.

Breaking any rule (either the first or second time) will prompt an admin to leave a warning on your message wall. Warnings cannot be negotiated with, but they can be appealed. Different admins have different styles of moderation, so don't always expect a second offense to only yield another warning.

Circumstances exist in which an admin is prompted to skip warnings and immediately block the user. In most cases, this approach is restricted to troll and vandalism-only accounts. However, everything works on a case-by-case basis.

Any warning or block can be appealed. Providing an understandable reason or apology will result in a shortened or removed block length most of the time. However, admins hold the ability to deny and discuss any appeal.

Any violations will result in punishments depending on the severity of the guideline violations, as well as the user's past accords.

Do you want to improve the guidelines and policies? Feel free to discuss them on the blogs or discussions.

While not a policy, you should also see the manual of style in order to improve your articles.

Content

1#: As the Wikipedia rule says, this wiki is not supposed to be a collection full of misinformation

Information (with the exception of upcoming information for some time) is not supposed to stay in the wiki without being confirmed by links, sources or citations (for example; if you uploaded your episode in YouTube, the video link should be added in the wiki article as well).

Unconfirmed information related to an uploaded episode (that doesn't link to the uploaded Youtube video), should have the template: {{Cite}}.

As mentioned in rule 5#, spoilers (or any sort of upcoming information) should be in the spoilers category (note that spoilers that don't have the spoilers category will get deleted).

2#: Do not add any information irrelevant to AGK in article pages

You should note that this wiki is a collaborative website for everyone, not only for you, your AGK series or your characters. Making information that is only related to your series or characters kills the purpose of collaboration in the wiki. Users here want to see encyclopedic stuff related to AGK, so If you don't own a series, you shouldn't add any irrelevant information. Articles should contain some information related to AGK, not only their information.

Completely bizarre fluff that does not fit the general impression of the subject is not advisable and will be removed.

The following should be included:
  • Pages on creators and their series, as like it or not, they are a part of the meme's history.
  • Character pages. Provided that they make an actual appearance in the series and aren't simply "planned". Planned characters and upcoming should be added to the spoilers category.
  • Weapons used by Leopold or other characters, such as Leopold's keyboard and the Blue Orb.
  • Notable subcomponents of the AGK Meme, such as Let's Get Lost, Computers, and Sausage Eggs.
  • Characters that don't appear in a popular parody series (in terms of views). They should have the "Characters that lack popularity" category and the UnpopularCharacter template on top of the page.
  • Transcripts should start with "Script:", be added to the Scripts category and may optionally use the new script format.
  • Article pages that are very short or lack information should have the stub template.

3#: All pages (unless specified otherwise), especially new ones, are subject for review on notability

All pages that don't qualify the notability requirements are eligible for deletion, merger with a related article.

Similarly, a group of pages lacking notability in its own right, but are related to each other, might get merged into a single, new article.

The following lists the article categories, and their notability criteria:

  • Characters: A recurring character who appears in multiple parodies/series by either one or several AGK parodists, NOT merely mentioned, OR being a notable cast of its own Parody Theme. Do not create your character's own page unless they are as notable and popular as Sukscox's. New users don't know and often break this rule.
  • Parodies: Has well-defined plot and popular (in terms of views).
  • Parody Themes: Notable (many parodies, many views)
  • AGK parodists: Has 1000 collective views or higher (on parodies only!)
  • Events: Has an associated Series and NOT speculatory or a fanfic.

4#: Do not misuse Trivia

Trivia should only include hidden facts not limited to, that regards the user themselves. These should be used only for information that is not necessary/essential to know.  An excessive amount of personal facts will be deleted.

5#: Upcoming information and appropriate level of fanon are regarded as spoilers

If your page contains spoilers, make sure that users know they are spoilers by adding the page to the spoilers category.

If there's a lot of upcoming information that stays for a very long time here while most of the audience doesn't know about YOUR content at all, the respective information will be referred as nonsense and may be challenged and deleted.

As rule 1# says, upcoming information is not actual information and should not be kept forever UNTIL the source it's confirmed (by linking the video in the wiki article) to be uploaded in Youtube or another video-sharing website.

The following should include the spoilers category:

  • Scripts
  • AGK series pages with both planned parodies and less than 50% planned episodes uploaded
  • Character pages of upcoming AGK series
  • Comparison pages
  • Unconfirmed, unsourced or unlinked information

6#: Restrict spoilers to where they belong

While we allow this information to surface on future event pages, unconfirmed information shouldn't be added to other pages, such as upcoming characters or upcoming weapons (this doesn't apply to the parodist himself. only the content) until the events are confirmed in a video linked to the page.

  • However, this doesn't extend to the comments, talk sections, and message walls; so you can discuss spoilers on any page but don't add the information (on other article pages) outside of where they are allowed to appear (unless the source is confirmed as mentioned above).

7#: Creating your own user article is allowed but is now subject to the clause on notability

  • All user articles must include an infobox. This includes the character pages and the episode pages.
  • On the page, you can give brief information about your channel, the list of parodies you have made, and ones you're planning to make.
  • Do not make separate pages for these items (unless they're notable pages) or else they will be moved, merged or deleted.
  • If it is a spoiler, be sure to add it to the spoilers category as mentioned above.
  • Users are not allowed to type "coming soon" on any page.
  • Once the page is created here, it stays here until one or more admins will decide whether the page will stay or not. Do not blank or try to delete your own user page or any page for that matter.
  • If you found an article that doesn't follow the rules and didn't have any changes, consider adding the delete template. You can also add the reason why it should be deleted.

8#: Do not delete or blank pages related to any retired AGK parodists

Any requests to delete them permanently will be ignored.

  • Like we mentioned above, other users should not approach, mention, or blank pages regarding that user. Offenders may have related pages reverted and protected.

Other things include:

  • Excessive bad words,
  • Flooding article comments;
  • Exposing too much of your personal details,
  • Keep asking the same question(s),
  • Using all caps in all edits,
  • Wall of text

are all not allowed. In some cases, the user may get a brief block.

9#: Uploading files and videos are only allowed if...

  • ...the file about the following series is 100% accurate and if you are posting it from somewhere else, make sure you get the Admins' permission before posting to a page that is a bit or not related to the main topic that you are getting the image from.
  • ...the files are used on (and related about) the following article pages. Any videos/images that are not parodies, or are not used on any page will be deleted.
  • ...the images/videos are uploaded with filenames that follow the naming rules. Name your file(s) properly! Do not use filenames such as 'image', 'photo' or 'avatar', all of these might run the risk of being deleted without being renamed-and-redirected by admins.

User Conduct

What we value the most in a good society is proper behavior. Everyone in this wiki must be respected the same way you would want to be treated (for example; if a user acted nice to you, you should act nice to them as well), so we don't ever wish to see any toxicity, horseplay, hate, negativity (this does not apply to improve on's) or demanding to anybody's pages that they have created.

Any users that break these rules will be given a normal chat punishment and the comments will be deleted by the admins.

1#: Be BOLD

If you have something that's worth mentioning here, go ahead!

2#: Do not discriminate people based on race, creed, color, gender, age, religion, or disability

If you think discriminating people is a fun thing to do... you're dead wrong! 
You are not allowed to hurt, offend and embarrass the users for no understandable reason. You can create social conflicts and a toxic atmosphere here if you do so!
If you keep doing this attitude, you will get blocked for a week or longer depending on the situation.

3#: Do not start or be involved in big edit wars

We want the community to get along with each other. An edit warning is when two or more users are undoing each other's edits too much.  To prevent an edit war, just simply report the situation to an active administrator (if there's one) and just wait for them to sort it out.

Pages suffering from edit wars may end up being protected for a short period of time.

4#: Personal attacks and otherwise cruel actions are not allowed in the wiki

Whether a user is blocked or not, you have no right to be rude towards them at all. Also making hate pages out of anyone is strictly prohibited, doing this will make you get a major punishment around posting and chatting.

Do not claim or accuse anybody of causing hate when you actually did it. And claiming something that isn't yours is a thing you DON'T want to do. People like PVMAGKVIDEOS want to just have a normal time on AGK and starting a flame war to them is just wrong, this is just an example of this rule.

5#: Do not censor someone's username in the comments

Censoring the user's name will mess up the comment making it look misleading. In the worst case, it will also make the user look like a spammer. If continued this will get you blocked for two or four weeks.

6#: Rants and hate speech will not be tolerated

Do not rant on anybody's page, you can cause arguments or possibly drama if you continue to do so! You shouldn't also use hate speech in his wiki, not even in the article pages or the comments! If you do so, your comments will be removed as soon as someone notices and you'll be warned or blocked for five weeks.

7#: Do not flamebait, use offensive jokes or otherwise intimidate users

Similarly to rules 2# and #5, not only does this create social conflicts between users but it also makes the user targeted look bad, along with the account responsible for the attack.

Some users may take these jokes personally, and they may be upset by them. If you do a joke, specify before a social conflict is created over it.

8#: Do not impersonate other users

Attempting to use someone's username, or making edits attempting to mock the targeted user is discouraged and is unacceptable.

Breaking this rule will probably result in your account to be blocked infinitely.

9#: Do not spread rumors or gossip about other users

Similarly to rules 2#, 5# and 7#, also known as drama, this may flood the wiki activity and may humiliate the targeted users.

10#: Do not overuse profanity towards other users

Profanity (or swearing) is allowed to use as long as you don't cause serious drama in the wiki. It should be used in moderation.

11#: Use English-language content

This wiki uses the English language, native or learned, at almost all times, day and night. Spamming or using international language content (except wiki language interlinks) is prohibited in comments, chat and of course, article pages.

12#: Don't invite misbehavior

Threatening or attempting to threat other users into breaking the rules is completely intolerable and will result in a permanent block.

Be Aware of Vandalism

Vandalism of any kind is unacceptable in this wiki!

1#: Do not vandalize any articles

Vandalism greatly damages pages' developments and we are more than welcome to revert any vandalism and take actions against anyone that vandalizes or encourages it.

2#: Do not spam

Spam is harmful and will flood the wiki activity. Spamming also makes it hard to view other contributions made on the wiki.

3#: Do not post any GoAnimate or Plotagon videos here

GoAnimate (along with Plotagon) is widely hated by the majority of the members in this community. If you make Angry German Kid videos only by using GoAnimate, then this wiki is not the right place to post such videos! Posting any videos or images made with GoAnimate may result in a block.

Any parodies or content made with GoAnimate should be reported to an active admin to remove it from the wiki as soon as possible!

4#: Pay attention to Sockpuppetry

You can test multiple accounts only with an admin's permission. Other than that, please do NOT use this method to avoid punishment such as a block (or ban).

Using sockpuppets without permission can result in the main account's block being extended and the sock being blocked permanently.

5#: Creating an account with an inappropriate username.

Using sexual usernames, hate usernames or otherwise hurtful or offensive usernames is prohibited and will get you blocked for a month.

6#: Do not excessively backseat moderate people (mini-modding)

As a regular user, you may tell a vandal or rule-breaker to stop once, but if the vandal or rule-breaker still doesn't stop, you must tell an admin immediately! This will be overlooked if your actions were in good faith.

7#: Do not post adult content

This wiki is meant to be read by the general audience of the AGK community. Nsfw, nsfl, bomb threats, drug use, gore, and on-screen pornography will not be tolerated. 

8#: Do not completely reveal any user's personal information

Including you, you should not reveal any user's credit card number, social security number, home address, password, or phone number.

Revealing the respective user's personal information without their permission is an offense of the highest degree. This will result in an immediate block for 2-3 weeks.

In case of an accidental reveal, please contact an administrator to remove it as soon as possible.

Administration Policy

Even though you have powers, the regular rules will still apply to your account. So, don't expect us Admins to tolerate imbecilic acts. We have the big guns here, you know.

1#: Block with a good and valid reason

Blocking is a serious thing to do to a user to prevent harm to the wiki. Try to give a valid reason that is detailed for the block, especially if the block duration is over 1 month or infinite.

2#: Use your powers correctly, and act in good faith

Blocking is meant to be preventive, not punitive.

3#: Try to be serious in wiki conflicts

Administrators, bureaucrats, chat, content, and discussion moderators should be serious in social conflicts, vandalism, and other wiki conflicts. Creating, participating, or otherwise encouraging or kicking up a serious issue is highly unacceptable for a user with given powers.

4#: Do not abuse privileges or powers

Blocking users for no reason, removing certain features for no valid reason (blogs for example), friendship promotions and rivalry demotions are frowned upon, and may lead to privileges being revoked.

5#: Be a good example for other users

As an administrator, not only protecting your wiki, you need to be a good example for other users to learn and might become a skilled and responsible administrator like you.

6#: Be humble and calm towards users' opinions

Try not to be aggressive when a user complains about your attitude or actions they see as wrong.

Blocking Policy

If you keep breaking the rules, you will get banned from this wiki as soon as somebody and the admin notices.

1#: Before you block users, you should not block them for no reason!

You CANNOT block users for no reason! Any new blocks that don't have any reason, may be changed to include the reason. Users that have been blocked unfairly will be unblocked and the admin who did the action may get demoted.

Users may be warned or blocked due to (sometimes limited to) the following:

  • Page-blanking or content removal for no foreseeable reason.
  • Vandalism
  • Spamming.
  • Harassment, personal attacks or cyber-bullying.
  • Creating articles that contribute nothing.
  • Excessive profanity.
  • Deliberate disregard to warnings or notices sent by administrators.

Admins:

  • Blocking people for no understandable reason

2#: Only sockpuppets, spam-only or vandalism-only accounts should be blocked infinitely

If the user account has normal good-faith contributions but also broke few rules, then there's no reason to immediately block the user without giving them a warning! Only sockpuppet, spam-only or vandalism-only accounts can be blocked permanently, in rest all blocks on regular users should be limited!

Do not misuse this feature, for example, if a user caused an argument or drama but also done some good contributions in the past, the user SHOULD NOT be blocked infinitely, they should be blocked for a limited amount of time only!

  • As an exception, infinite blocks can apply if the "apologized or good" user (like FallenAGKVideos) also caused damage in the wiki before and started to repeat the damage (like a lot spamming, repeatedly ignoring warnings, using plenty of sockpuppets etc).
