There are very few policies which apply across all Wikia. These can be found on the Central Wikia at Wikia:Category:Policy.

The policies specific to Encyclopedia SpongeBobia are found below. These rules must be obeyed.

The Rules

I. General policies

  • A. Definitions
  • 1. User - any member of the wiki's community including contributors, administrators, and bureaucrats.
  • 2. Vandalism - any change in content that is intended to be negative.
  • 3. Fanon - any SpongeBob SquarePants in-universe or merchandise-related content not officially released by Viacom via a press conference or the Nickelodeon TV channel, and information that can be derived from that.
  • B. User conduct
  • 1. Do not attack other users personally. This includes threats and name calling.
  • 2. Do not discriminate other users, whether it is religion, political affiliation, sexual preference, or anything else. It is strongly recommended that users do not mention their religion, political affiliation, sexual preference or anything else that could cause tension. A minor biography is all that is necessary, however the administration will never stop you from adding more to your user page, unless any problem arises from comments made.
  • 3. Do not use profanity. You can say "damn" as it was used in the movie, possibly "hell" if in the context. This also means no use of the words such as "f***", even when used as an expletive.
  • a. Any use of profanity in general will result in consequences.
  • b. Any use of profanity directly toward other users will result in a more severe consequence.
  • 4. Do not add or link to content that is inappropriate for younger readers/contributors (someone that is under 8 years old.)
  • C. Vandalism
  • 1. Do not vandalize anything on the wiki.
  • a. Spam
  • b. Nonsense edits
  • c. Removal of good quality content
  • d. Blanking of pages
  • 2. Any user who continues to revert or change articles to a previously lower quality version will be blocked per the blocking policy.
  • D. Fanon
  • 1. Fanon is not allowed on the wiki.
  • 2. All fan-made content is to be placed at the Fanonia SpongeBobia, which was specifically created for such content.
  • 3. Do not insert information that is not true.
  • 4. Do not intentionally insert false dates and/or ages on any article without a source.
  • 5. Any user who violates #4 after an administrator requests a source be provided will result in an infinite block.
  • E. Content
  • 1. This is an encyclopedia and providing accurate information is the top priority.
  • 2. Do not speculate anything. Facts are facts and nothing else matters. Only add if you know it is true. Users are allowed to add paragraphs explaining possibilities on certain topics, but this must worded to let readers know that there is not a definitive fact.
  • 3. Do not create links to articles that do not exist and are not relevant to SpongeBob SquarePants. This is not Wikipedia.
  • 4. Do not create articles that have nothing to do with SpongeBob SquarePants.
  • 5. All guidelines must be follow in regards to article formatting, content, and layout. (See here)
  • 6. Do not use the words "We, I, you, etc." This creates confusion between users and the articles. Refer to everything in the third person.
  • F. Forums
  • 1. When using the forums make sure that the topic presented has something relevant to the topic of the Wiki and SpongeBob SquarePants. Any off topic discussion may result in the closing or removal of the thread, along with any necessary warnings or blockings.
  • G. User Pages/Walls
  • 1. You do not own your userspace, it is given to you to help people know you better. The administration reserves the right to remove any content they feel is inappropriate.
  • 2. Do not forbid anyone from leaving you a message on your message wall.
  • H. Administrators
  • 1. Do not directly ask for the sysop, bureaucrat, rollbacker, or any other similar tool directly. Use the request form here and make sure you qualify.
  • 2. Do not pose as an administrator if you are not. Administrators are the only ones allowed to inform a user that they have been blocked or banned.
  • I. Multiple Accounts
  • 1. Each user is only allowed one account, unless you have a good reason that can be approved by the administration. In that event, all users must identify themselves as the owner of the accounts on the user pages.
  • 2. Only administrators may have a bot account. This account must be flagged after a discussion.
  • J. Communication
  • 1. When two or more editors continually revert changes to an article back and forth, this is an edit war. Both parties, when they realize the war is going on, must stop and take the problem to discussion. If the situation cannot be resolved, an administrator may have to step in.
  • 2. If an administrator requests a response from a user regarding an issue, that user must acknowledge and respond to them. If the user makes more than twenty edits after the time of the administrator's message, this will be considered ignoring and consequences will follow.
  • 3. Extended conversations regarding topics unrelated to this wiki or SpongeBob SquarePants in general are not allowed on this wiki. Such conversations will be removed.
  • 4. Do not discuss another wiki's issues on this wiki, it is not the right place for them.
  • K. Personal stuff
  • 1. For your own safety, you are not obliged to reveal your personal information.

  • 7. Any administrator that violates clauses #5 and #6 (see above) will have their powers suspended for thirty (30) days, pending discussion for permanent removal.
  • C. Review Process

  • 2. A transcript submission page will be set up for users to submit transcripts (and suggest corrections) to be published here at the wiki.
  • 3. Administrators may submit changes to the transcript articles without the submission process, as long as they do not violate the policies outlined in section B (see above).

III. Discussions

This chapter outlines how we handle discussions.

  • A. Definitions
  • 1. Consensus – when 75% or more of the participants of a discussion are in favor of the proposal after seven (7) days or more of discussion.
  • B. General
  • 1. All major issues must be resolved from with discussions in the format outlined in this chapter.
  • 2. Discussions outside of the regular discussion thread (such as message walls) are not valid places to make decisions and/or policy changes. They can be used to bring up important issues that can be put up for official discussion, as long as they follow the rules.
  • C. Participants
  • 1. Discussions are completely open to all contributors, except if it involves certain contributors (see clause 2).
  • 2. Any discussion that involves certain contributors, they are excluded from voicing their support or opposition, as they are bias and their opinion is obvious. They are, however, allowed to comment, ask, and answer questions.
  • 3. The person who begins the discussion must make note of those excluded from participating in the decision process (see clause 2).
  • D. Opening discussions
  • 1. Only bureaucrats are permitted to open discussions.
  • 2. Anyone who is not a bureaucrat can draft a proposal, and must receive an endorsement from at least one (1) bureaucrat before the discussion is open. As soon as they receive an endorsement, they or the endorsing bureaucrat can create the discussion.
  • 3. If a non-bureaucrat creates a bureaucrat-endorsed discussion, they must link to the endorsement to show the discussion is valid.
  • 4. After the discussion is created, the endorser must make note of their endorsement on that discussion page for clarification, if the proposal was created by a non-bureaucrat.
  • E. Discussions
  • 1. The discussions must last at least seven (7) days from the date of the creation of the discussion.
  • F. Closing discussions
  • 1. At the end of the seven-day period, in order for a proposal to pass, there must be at least a three-fourths (75%) majority on one side.
  • 2. If there is not a 75% or more majority in favor of the proposal, the discussion continues until it reaches the fourteen (14) day mark. At the point if there is no consensus, the discussion will be closed.
  • 3. In the event that a discussion is closed and an agreement is not reached, another discussion must be created that takes into account compromises discussed in the closed discussion.
  • 4. Any bureaucrat or administrator can close the discussion, as long as the above policies are followed.
  • G. Post-discussion
  • 1. When a proposal passes, the decision is final.
  • 2. Unless otherwise stated, the policy change takes effect immediately.
  • H. Exceptions
  • 1. If a discussion requires more input, or contains a series of discussions, the discussion may be open for a longer period of time and close a different way.
  • 2. In the case of non-controversial discussions, a proposal may end after 3 days of discussion if:
  • a. At least 3 administrators support the proposal.
  • b. The discussion has 7 supports and no opposition.
