This page is a policy on the Malware Wiki. All rules listed on this policy page must be followed, or a block is given to the following user. Due to this page being a Policy page, we advise all users to read this page before editing.

These are the rules for the Malware Wiki.

Please do note that this wiki is not run by anarchy and will have rules that a user must comply with.

Editing

  • Do not vandalize or add gibberish to a page. First vandalization is a 1 week block, then a 1 month block, 1 year block, and finally a permanent ban.
    • This is an exception if the user being blocked is an anonymous user (a user without an account), as the user would be given an instant one year to infinite block depending how heavy the vandalism is.
    • Do not remove warnings placed by admins on your wall. Doing so will only get you in more trouble.
  • Do not create spam pages that are not built for mainspace.
  • Do not participate in "edit wars". Edit wars shall be resolved by admins, Message Walls, chat, or in respective forums.
  • Do not create useless and/or spam categories. Doing so will likely result in a ban.
  • Do not add unicode to pages unless required (such as for payloads, etc.)
  • Write in third person, and avoid pronouns such as 'I' or 'you'.
  • Refrain from making edits in a language other than English. If you want to make edits in other languages, do it in a Translation Wiki. If the language does not exist, ask an admin for permission to create a translation for said language.
  • Do not remove deletion templates placed on pages. Only admins and moderators are allowed to do so; doing such can result in a ban.
  • Do not edit another user's profile without their consent. If a user's profile page has been edited without their consent, they may file a complaint against the editor to an admin, and the admin will deal with it.
  • Be sure to maintain a neutral standpoint throughout your edits.
  • "Article ownership" is not allowed on this wiki, however if there is serious vandalism, we will lock the page.
  • Do not add malicious links to pages, or links to malware download sites. Doing so will result in a warning, than a 1 month block.

User-made Malware

If you would like to have your malware featured in this wiki, your malware must meet certain requirements:

  • Must be somewhat interesting by having unique behaviors and payloads
  • Must be detected as malware by recognizable antivirus programs

OR

  • Featured by a recognizable YouTuber such as Danooct1
  • Must be able to hide from recognizable antivirus programs whilst still being able to do harmful things to the host computer

Chat

Chat is rarely ever used, as it is now replaced by Discord. If you would only like a quick chat with another user, use Chat. For other circumstances, use Discord.

  • Do not swear, harass, spam, insult, slander, or threaten anyone in chat, or you will be warned. After your warning will be a kick, and then bans.
  • No unicode is allowed in chat. Unicode is only allowed on Message Walls, comments, and Profiles.
  • Do not roleplay. Any roleplaying will result in an instant kick, and possibly bans, if your roleplay is "cringy" enough. "Cringe" level shall be decided by the mods and admins on chat.

Powerusers

  • Do not bully or harass anyone.
  • A user must be 12 or older to join. If a user is found to be under 12, they will be banned until their 12th birthday.
  • Do not swear.
  • Do not spam on other people's walls.
  • Do not spam-ask for promotions.
  • When creating a translation wiki, please ask an admin first.
  • Do not create secondary accounts (sockpuppets) unless creating a bot.
    • When creating a bot, you must ask an admin first.

Admins

  • Do not ban, block, or kick for fun.
  • Follow rules, especially if you are the one who made said rules.
  • Do not abuse powers, or delete necessary pages.
  • Do not spam-ask for promotions.
  • Do not suppress opinions you may disagree on (e.g. blocking a user that criticizes you, deleting certain discussions, etc.)
  • Only promote users if they meet the requirements and the community is mostly supportive of it. Do not promote users out of the blue.

See here for more details.

Bureaucrats

  • Do not commit "Wiki Dictation".
  • Do not commit "Friend Promotions" or "Rival Demotions".
  • Only promote users if they meet the requirements and the community is mostly supportive of it. Do not promote users out of the blue.
