Blocking is the means by which an administrator prevents a user from editing the Guilty Gear Wiki. Blocks are preventative measures, designed to stop disruption and enforce site rules and policies. Block lengths may vary depending on the severity of the disruption, but in most cases a block may be lifted if the offending user agrees to stop the disruptive behavior.
The following list shows some of the most common reasons for which a block may be issued; it is by no means comprehensive, and administrators are not bound by these specific cases.
- Vandalism - Any edit made to deliberately lower the quality of the wiki, such as adding nonsense to articles or blanking pages.
- Disruption - Behavior that damages the wiki and its community.
- Fanon - Adding unofficial fan-made content to the Guilty Gear Wiki.
- Personal attacks - Users personally attacking other users, which usually occurs in relation to a disagreement over article content.
- Sockpuppetry - An attempt by a user to evade an existing block in order to continue to edit the wiki.
- Consensus violation - Deliberate attempts to counteract the wiki's policies.
- Spam - Adding commercial links or content to articles.
You can appeal a block by contacting the blocking administrator through our wiki's Discord, where you can explain if you believe your block was unjustified or made in error. See also "I have been blocked".
