The rules and guidelines of the Revelation Space Wiki. Please follow them whenever you edit or discuss the contents of this wiki with other fellow contributors.
- Rule 1: Please keep it civil. Do not make personal attacks on other people. If you need to criticize another user’s argument, do so without attacking them as a person. Do not use bigoted language, including slurs which degrade another person or group of people based on gender, race, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, etc.
- Rule 2: Be a productive member of the wiki. Contribute to the wiki in line with the established processes and conventions. Need help? Ask an administrator! Disrupting the wiki with “edit warring” over differing opinions of a topic with another user or group of users is not productive.
- Rule 3: Do not engage in excessive self-promotion. The wiki is a collaborative community resource for the topic at hand. It is NOT a free place to advertise your related website, YouTube channel, blog, social media account, etc. Have a question about whether your link would be welcome? Ask an administrator!
- Rule 4: Do not harass other users. If somebody asks you to stop posting certain content on their wall, respect their wishes. It is their wall.
- Rule 5: Do follow community guidelines for formatting. When a community has established formatting, it’s important to adhere to that, especially when spoiler content is involved. At the Archaeology Soup Wiki, we welcome suggestions for new formatting. However, all major changes to formatting must be first subject to discussion among all or most contributors to the wiki.
- Rule 6: Content unrelated to the Revelation Space series and plagiarised content does not belong here. This wiki should be focused entirely and solely on the topic of the Revelation Space book series by science fiction writer Alastair Reynolds, on the series' fictional universe, translations, adaptations, and so on. Plagiarising non-fiction or journalistic text written by other people and copying it to the wiki will also not be tolerated. Everything you write on this wiki needs to be your own work, and if you are citing anyone as a contributor to the wiki, or citing an excerpt written by someone else, you must clearly state so to the readers of the wiki. The policy concerning excerpts extends to quoting excerpts from works in the Revelation Space series.
- Rule 7: Do not threaten legal or other action. Do not threaten any staff member or any contributors to the Revelation Space Wiki with legal action or any other threats. This is an extension of basic civil behaviour on this wiki and our zero tolerance towards any harassment.
Thank you for reading these rules and following them. We hope to moderate the wiki consistently based on these rules. We reserve the right to update these rules slightly in the future, if necessary. We wish you a good time on the Revelation Space Wiki.
