| This page documents an official League of Legends Wiki policy.
It is a widely accepted standard that should normally be followed by all editors.
We use Discord on the LoL Wiki to chat with each other. You can join by clicking the "Join the Discord" button.
Users should avoid sharing personal information, unless they feel comfortable. If possible, they should limit this sharing to private messaging.
Grounds for kicking/blocking
Users who are clearly disruptive to the chat or who fail to behave appropriately towards other contributors may be blocked. The possible reasons for blocking include, but are not limited to:
- Personal attacks, bigotry and/or racist or sexist name calling.
- Harassment and/or sexual harassment.
- Linking content that is pornographic in nature. Strong pornography is a direct violation of the rules, while "ecchi" and erotically suggestive material is left to chat moderator discretion.
- Extreme use of profanity/cursing or directing it towards another user is not permitted.
- Violation of personal privacy. This includes revealing personal information about users (e.g. real name, location, age, gender, etc.) and violating confidentiality on particular issues (such as issues asked to be kept confidential by other users or administrators).
- Linking to external sources, such as websites, which violate the aforementioned rules. Notably, publicly linking to websites such as Facebook or Myspace that violate personal privacy, is not permitted without prior consent from the user whose privacy might be violated.
- Trolling or general irritation or disruption of other users. This often includes, but is not limited to; excessive usage of capital letters, punctuation marks, deliberate distortions of the English language (such as "l33t speak"), and excessive usage of non-English languages.
- Being a jerk. As a guideline, don't go out of your way to irritate others, and especially, do not try to test the admins' and chat moderators' patience and limits. Vicious abuse is grounds for sanctions.
- Whining. Users who ask for something from another chat user and are refused it should not stoop to complaining. It is acceptable to be persistent, but in a mature manner.
- Discussing real-world politics, religion or other controversial topics without unanimous consent. If someone doesn't want to talk about them, drop the subject or continue the discussion in Private Messages.
- Spamming. The meaning should be obvious. Don't say the same thing six times because no one is responding to you. Don't keep yammering on about a subject nobody cares about. Don't pointlessly point out that chat is "dead". Meaningless and/or irrelevant posts can also be considered spam, alongside disruptive internet memes.
Although it concerns editing on a wiki, the Community Guidelines also apply to chat.
The usage of capital letters and caps lock is frowned upon. Using capital letters to write a word or a whole entry is typically perceived as yelling.
Using excessive capital letters once will often result in a courtesy warning by an administrator or chat moderator, and persistent usage of capital letters may lead to a kick or ban, depending on severity.
