1.2

Would the word "Ganja" break it? --ÆAUSSIEevilÆTC/ 05:30, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

How about 1.2 is altered? This isn't the HSR website. How about we do like the IRC and keep it...I dunno. PG.
  1. REDIRECT User:Lucian Summers/sig 13:21, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
What about TV-Y7? They can say cr**, su**s, and fr***in' in those. 68.162.95.68 21:08, 27 June 2008 (UTC)(WUjcm logged out)
The youngest user here is Micah, but we're not going to make it TV-Y7 for one or two people. The average age of the users on here is roughly 11, 12, or 13. I say expand it to being able to say d**n and h***.
  1. REDIRECT User:Lucian Summers/sig 21:11, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
Umm... If you can say Crap, Sucks and Freakin, how comes you still censor it? And PG-13? I'm alright with that. Sephiroth 21:12, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
But, I'm 12, almost 13, and I still don't think we should swear. And, do you know what words they use on PG-13? Bad ones. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 21:17, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
I have no problem with PG-13. And jcm, if you don't like them, just don't use them. Bluebry 21:38, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
The thing is, JCM, there's no use avoiding swears and stuff, because, no matter how hard you try, you'll hear them a lot. You can censor the Wiki, bt you can't censor life. Sephiroth 21:48, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
I didn't say anything about real life. But, still, since this place is based on the users of the HRFWiki, we should use the same language as there. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 21:51, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
Most of the language over there has a bit more to do with the fact that it's Homestar Runner stuff, and we should stick to their themes. Plus, most users are about 13. That's perfect for PG-13.  yup  21:56, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

{Abolishes colons} Maybe we should just allow PG-13 and put an age restriction on here...Artisan of TortureThey call me Big T BLOODArtisan of Torture 22:00, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

No. We have some 10 and under year olds here and you have no right to ban them because we changed the language rules. Maybe we should ask Super Sam about this. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 23:35, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
WELL THEN why don't we keep them and change the rules anyway? If they don't like it, they can leave.  yup  23:37, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
YAY! Slightly more acceptable terms! Artisan of TortureThey call me Big T BLOODArtisan of Torture 04:57, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
Let's just remove all the objectionable material off of TV because it might offend 3 year olds.-Chwoka 05:07, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
Oh boohoo. Skully B and Ryan Bluefox use minor swears like the "D-word" (BOOHOO YOU SOOKY LITTLE TEN YEAR OLDS), no one goes after them. I don't care much for Skully B using it, but Ryan is a moderator, and aren't moderators like meant to be like mentors of sorts to being a good user? --Xenophunk(don't) talk to me 09:13, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
We're allowed to use those words now, like Damn, Ass, and Hell. And if we'd like, we can put a warning before our fanstuff to use slightly less acceptable humor, words, and such, so this is REALLY OUTDATED. Artisan of TortureThey call me Big T BLOODArtisan of Torture 19:15, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

This problem is arising again. Can someone tell a certain user to stop the major cussing? He does not have exceptions to that rule because he's a mod. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 13:08, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

I HAS A QUESTION. I'm new here, and if i'm following this, this 1.2 rule says we can say anything but the f-word and s-word? Right? That's what it says right? PLEASE TELL ME I'M RIGHT.-MikeControl 20:53, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

WE can use the s word if we usse the profanity template. Brerose 20:55, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
And even then, the s-word can't be used a lot. belstrnnmmvnmn 20:58, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
And you have to have written permission from Super Sam. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 21:44, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
...There's nothing in the Wiki Guidelines that says that. belstrnnmmvnmn 21:45, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

"Fanstuff" Guidelines

Is there any reason these are called "Fanstuff Guidelines", even though this isn't fanstuff? -- NachoTalk 01:32, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Template

Uh, do we have a template? --Xenophunk(don't) talk to me 03:48, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

No. I can make one, though, or bring it here from the fanstuff. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 04:28, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
Please. --Xenophunk(don't) talk to me 04:32, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
Do you want it the same or different from the HRFWiki one? Because I heard that Bluebry might be making one and I might have to ask him first. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 19:54, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
An old discussion, but, the template on fanstuff requires a certain addon thing that we don't have here. Someone should make a new one. If no one wants to I guess I will though.  yup  20:19, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

I figure that there's two wastes of time:
1: Waste your time getting worried about things that you can't do anything about and are probably none of your buisiness, starting off your unnessessary ulcer pains early,
OR
2: Waste your time doing stuff like play video games, hang out with friends, just doing stuff you like to do. It's like I always say, "Time you enjoy wasting isn't wasted time."
So, I don't have a stand on anything. If you asked me whether I like Obama or McCain, I would tell you that I don't care. My parents were smart when they bought my house, so they are affected little to none by the collapse of Wall Street. I just don't care. And I'm a happier person because of it. Carpe Diem! Seize the day! SuperfieldCreditUnion
er, you guys probably didn't BUY the house, and instead have a mortgage, in which you should be very afraid
not trying to scare you or anything, but you should really be active in politics since it can come up and bite you in the ass if you aren't  yup  22:12, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
What's there to know about politics? Bush sucks, McCain sucks, Obama's controversial, Hillary's a guy, the Iraqi War basically doesn't exist anymore, and we pay too much money for things like gas. Artisan of TortureThey call me Big T BLOODArtisan of Torture 22:18, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

what's there to know about politics? You guys know that everything you do can become illegal right? if you don't pay attention, who knows, we could be living in a police state or anarchy! you need to learn about politics, and you need to vote. hell, i wish i could vote now.
also raiku ron paul lost the primary he wouldn't have won  yup  22:29, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
We know enough politics to get by, so please shut up. Artisan of TortureThey call me Big T BLOODArtisan of Torture 22:30, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
apparently not, because you said the iraq war isn't still going on when we've paid "over $845 billion" for it. in the last five years (six this march). and we're still paying money to it  yup  22:34, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
Which just proves that Chaos should never be let onto television or let near a voting booth.
im ron paul and i can put my entire hand in my mouf - SKUB ? 22:36, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
If you idiotic assheads would please turn your attention to my earlier remark, it clearly states that it's basically over, because it seems to have faded out of the direct attention of most average americans between the ages of 10 and 45, but facts don't matter to you guys, you're "Finger-Up-Your-Narrow-Ass" republicans, meaning that you don't care, as long as you can exert your power, you feel good, when you're actually just demaning yourselves, or should I pull out the Nixon and Reagan cards?

I...don't think it matters. I guess that depends, what's wrong with apostrophes and middots? Artisan of TortureThey call me Big T BLOODArtisan of Torture 12:15, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm sure that counts in the rule. And there should be no one dumb enough to do that, anyway. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 13:49, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
I think Bluebry wants us to edit the rules so it says "apostrophes and middots" in it, for clarification. Artisan of TortureThey call me Big T BLOODArtisan of Torture 17:27, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

New Rule/Rewrite

Obviously, creativity and originality has been slowly slipping away with more and more fictions copying off one another. This is why I propose a new rule (or an add on to 1.8) about copying other fictions' concepts and plotlines. It would go something like this;

"If a fiction or concept of a fiction is deemed too close or too similar to another, the fiction must be changed or be deleted. This includes characters, plotlines, and entire fictions all together."

I, obviously, am terrible at writing official rules, but I'd like some feedback on this idea. --TDenztest2.pngWILL 00:26, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Okay, guys

We need to enforce the rules more. I'm tired of everyone breaking them because they have "money". We need to treat all rules more like laws with actual punishments for breaking them. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 02:06, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Chwoka's. The guidelines are not meant to be taken literally anyway; they are just meant to be interpreted. With your edit it take away that interpretation and put in strict rules.  yup  00:01, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure rule 1.6 is there because we copied the Fanstuff guidelines from the HRFWiki. I think this should indeed be the "any old shiznit wiki" --86.12.232.113 00:02, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Too bad. It's still the "Wiki User Wiki". And Super Sam won't change the name anytime soon. In fact, do you guys even care about this place? MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 00:03, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
It's called the Wiki User Wiki because apparently we're horribly unoriginal and your name is JCM that doesn't mean you're not a whiny arsebag. --86.12.232.113 00:06, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Well, that proves it. I'm one of the only sane people here. This place was made to store fanstuff about wiki users, hence the name. But, yall didn't think it was enough. Which is why the suggestion box is the biggest project namespace page we have. And this place once was good. When there was the Homestar Runner Fanstuff Wiki to keep most users occupied. That was when Fanstuff of the Fortnight was created. But when the purge came, where did they come crawling? Here. And you people treat this place worse than you treated the HRFWiki. It's extremely sad how the veterans didn't learn a thing from the purge. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 00:13, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

so can we remove 1.6 yet THENOID 18:05, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

we ain't removing crud. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 18:33, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Okay, so I believe many people are saying rule 1.6 should be abolished because it is not really relevant to this wiki. It's the "Wiki User Wiki", which pretty much means it's a place to put stories and content from the community of the user wiki. It's not the "Wiki User Fanstuff Wiki". Also I don't think we should refer to the content of this wiki as "fanstuff" because we're generally doing it about ourselves and other community members and (with the exception of Blubry) it sounds ridiculous to say we're fans of ourselves? --Dinoshaur gaycm 21:43, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

If we abolish 1.6, the Entertainment Wiki will lose any popularity it had left. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 21:45, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

You guys have the wuw, which is named "Wiki User Wiki" for a reason, I have EWiki, which will become unneeded if rule 1.6 is destroyed. Please keep the wiki the same. Thank you, - Raiku.

Hey if I brought back rule 1.6 and enforced it would people leave in droves?

Email shows?

Since we, unlike the HRFWiki, contain mainly non-email shows, don't you think we should widen the variety of the 4th section? MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 02:32, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

yeah, we probably should. although i prefer short writings to ensure I don't have to add unnecessary detail, but, i can see why this is needed  yup  02:35, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, I personally think it's easier to write a normal show, as all the episodes don't have to depend on other users' ideas, though it does help to get a suggestion from time to time. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 02:37, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Does anyone else agree with the idea? MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 12:38, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

I have expanded on your idea by removing the section all together. :grad: - Super Sam 22:04, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
While I see your reasoning in this matter, I was planning on reviving Ert Emails since I brought him back. Am I still aloud to, or are we cutting emails out of the WUW completely? Good Deal Dan 22:08, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
I've just removed the rules, all the Wiki User stuff is still there (now in one delicious page even). - Super Sam 22:20, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
Super Sam, we are in hard times. In order to keep the wiki up, we'll have to be more strict with the rules. We can't afford should-be-rulebreaking things like Raiku Email around here, the HRFWiki, or anywhere. Wikis don't come cheap these days. MeTK2lK.pngrEqWIWX.png 12:38, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

RE: 1.2

What if they are cut off, i.e. "What the f-" and "Holy sh-"? belstrnnmmvnmn 03:34, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

We can tell what they mean, so it's still technically cursing. Might I take this moment to tell you guys something? Whenever you star out any four letter word, the conclusion the mind automatically assumes is the f word, even if the starred out word is the s word. So, leave the first letter when you star out the word. — ChwokaTalk

1.8

Rule 1.8 seriously needs to be beefed up for those who don't understand the memes we have here. When I first enetered the wiki, I took it to mean "Do not revert the wars". That's what happens when you leave out verbs, but then again, I accidenty the fanstuff guidelines. --Schmello!HomfrogtalkribsSchmoodbye! 23:51, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

I really think that 1.2 needs rewording.

Because I don't think anybody can tell exactly what the hell's allowed on this wiki. Honestly, I think that 1.2 basically means "Anything that's acceptable on Futurama or Family Guy", but that's probably wrong. belstrnnmmvnmn 01:28, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

This has been said a few times now but it gets to a stage where if the rule was any more specific it would be too restrictive. Besides, context is everything and that isn't something that can be easily covered in a rule. - Super Sam 15:20, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

what rules do we need

what ones are total crap

and why am I so cool Brerose 21:44, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

1.1 needs a revision, we don't need 1.2 or 1.3, 1.6 is garbage, 1.9 is absolutely necessary Artisan of TortureThey call me Big T BLOODArtisan of Torture 22:03, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
how is 1.9 necessary?
1.5 is slightly meh but I'd say we keep it so we don't have random pages everywhere
1.7 could probably use a revision and 1.4 is necessary
I still don't understand 1.10
the 2 and 3 sections are useless in my opinion but if someone can explain how they're useful then I'll listen Brerose 22:20, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
1.9 prevents the absolute most annoying thing possible on the wiki
and without section 2 people could make signatures that consume entire pages Artisan of TortureThey call me Big T BLOODArtisan of Torture 22:22, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
then maybe just a revision to section 2
1.9 is lame but you have a point Brerose 22:26, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

remolay
isn't that

just pointless then

and what about 1.3 that rule was useless in the long run Brerose 00:14, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

I'd call it a safety measure, plus I love Magic The Gathering's "Don't Follow This Rule" rule.

On 1.3, The Transcription Standards don't actually exist, but why get rid of a rule we actually all follow anyway? RemolaySig.pngtalk 00:20, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

Because if we ever get the user block down then we have a rule that would confuse the shit out of everyone
also safety measures are useless Sam basically gave us the wiki the rules are ours not his
except, worship him
yeah do that Brerose 00:24, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
Given that, we might not need 1.2, but I haven't re-deleted it. I will not put up a fuss if it is. I've modified 1.3 to be worded better (Read less confusing to new users if that ever happens again), but I honestly believe it is necessary.
May I ask why?
The type of writing we do isn't common anywhere else
There may be people who come and have no idea how to do it
I redeleted it, but if you put it back up, I won't revert it again. Brerose 01:03, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
Most everything one this site follows that guideline, and transcripts on other wikis follow a similar rule. For something that might be in a transcript format, which it honestly doesn't have to be (The wording of the rule doesn't require transcripts), if one wants to, it would be a good idea to have rule.
