Blocks and bans
Sometimes on wikia, accounts do get blocked and banned. If your account is blocked, there will definitely be a reason. Some of the reasons are:
- Inserting nonsense/gibberish onto pages
- Harassing other users
- Abusing mutliple accounts
- Removing content from pages
- Spamming to external links
- Usernames which are disrespectful, inappropriate or threatening
A full list of rules and policies are available here.
Blocks do have expiry dates. Expiry dates can last for as much time as the administrator thinks is necessary for the user. Block dates can last from
2 hours, 1 day, 3 days, 1 month, 3 months, 1 year, 2 years or even infinite. If you are blocked, do not think it means you are blocked forever. Unless
you have been really bad, then only will your account be blocked infinite. If you want to know how long your block is, check in the Block list.
