The Glitz PitFriend Codes

According to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), all users must be 13 years or older to join. Any account that is 12 and under will be banned until they turn 13.

General Rules

  • No bullying or harassing users.
  • Don't leave threats and rude messages on message walls.
  • No editing another user's page.
  • No swearing or cursing in the comments or forums.
  • No sock puppet accounts.
  • It is alright to earn badges, but it is not good for the sake of badge farming if it is the reason why it is going wrong.
  • If a argument between users is happening, it is vital that a admin breaks it up immediately. It is ok to resolve the issue, but the admin must not force a user to resolve a issue immediately. Give that user their space until they are ready to talk.
  • Always remember to treat users the same way you would want to be treated, even if you are friends or not.

Editing Rules

  • All articles must be in English. Please visit the main page if you want to find a Wiki site in your language.
    • Please also use a spell checker to ensure you spell a word right.
  • Do not write in all lower or upper case, or omit periods and commas from sentences.
  • Do not remove sections from pages, unless it's spam.
  • Do not create fanfiction articles. Instead, use Fantendo.
  • Do not directly plagerize an article from another site.
  • It is not appropriate to state the obvious on articles.
  • Do not create categories without seeking an admin's approval, as we have to check if it is appropriate. Users will be reminded, then warned should they do it again, and a week block should they do it a third time.
  • When creating a new article, don't leave it blank. Just write a short description and add this stub template or type {{Stub}}.
  • Do not edit milk pages. Edit milking means making more than 4 edits on a page in a single day. It will result in the page being protected, or a block if already warned. To avoid doing so, make sure to preview your edits before saving.

Image rules

When taking pictures, please use either the "PrtScn" button on your keyboard, or a video capturing device. The usage of .JPGs are not prohibited, but please make sure the image is clear, and not all blurry. Lastly, please don't not add photos taken from your cell phone or web camera, unless it is a picture of merchandise like K'NEX or Amiibo.

Chat Rules

As far as the chat room goes, please keep your language civil. Don't type in all caps, or continually swear. Keep the chat clean for everyone to use.
