Ben 10 Planet:Guidelines

3,444pages on Ben 10 Planet

This page contains all the guidelines for the wiki. If you do not follow these rules you will be blocked eventually. Underlined rules have been recently added and/or updated. In the event that something occurs that is not directly covered by these rules, yet is still deemed disruptive, the course of action will be left to the admins' judgement.

  • No flaming other users.
  • No trolling other users.
  • Wait until the end of an episode (including the credits) before making edits related to that episode, such as character names and events.
  • Keep your language and edits kid-friendly. There will be no profanity, even if the words are only partially spoken and/or censored, nor will there be any adult-oriented material. A good rule of thumb is: if it's not shown or said in the series, it's not kid-friendly.
  • Do not reply to someone whose message on a talk page is over one month old.
  • Don't spam. Spam includes off-topic messages, messages in other languages besides English, messages in "ALL CAPS," messages with repeating characters, advertisements, and any messages that you post several times in a row and/or on several places.
    • You are allowed to discuss things that happened on other wikis, as long as you abide by all the rules on this wiki.
  • No fan fiction or fan art. If you want to write your own stories about Ben 10 or upload your drawings go to the Fanonsite.
  • Undo happens to everyone, so don't get upset when it happens to you. If you make an edit and someone clicks on Undo to change it back, they will usually tell you why they did that in the summary. If you really think the edit belongs there, add it back and be sure to say why in the summary.
  • Occasionally, we may have to leave a message on your talk page/message wall saying why something you did wasn't allowed. If it was an honest mistake, explain it to the admin who gave you the warning. If we have to tell you several times, then that usually means you are doing it deliberately. After two or three warnings, an administrator may place a block on your account. Blocks can be anywhere from an hour to a few days for minor problems, or weeks, months, a year or permanent if the problem is severe enough. If you are able to provide a reasonable explanation for what you did, the block may be shortened or removed before it would expire. Do not remove warnings from your talk page/message wall.
  • Wikipedia, and IMDb are not official sources. Make sure you always get your information from official or reliable sources (Cartoon Network, Toonzone, etc.) and don't make anything up.
  • No unconfirmed info or fan speculation. Only add information if it has been confirmed. Remember to add the source of your information to the page in the appropriate section. A good rule of thumb is: if you have to use words that indicate uncertainty ("maybe", "possibly", "perhaps", "if ... then"), it's speculation.
  • Only upload pictures related to the show. Exceptions might be made, depending on the content of the picture.
  • Only upload pictures containing a licensed watermark (logo) like Cartoon Network's or none whatsoever. See more in Ben 10 Planet:Image Guide.
  • Files' names must be a short description of their contents and in English.
  • Talk pages are not for your personal comments on the main article; they are to discuss ways to improve the article. For casual discussions, start a discussion on the forums.
  • Articles should have as little pictures as possible. Only add pictures if they're essential for understanding a part of the article (e.g.: the "Errors" section).
  • Before renaming an article, ask about it on the talk page of the article you wish to rename.
  • The use of a second account (a sock puppet account, or "sock") is prohibited. See more in Ben 10 Planet:Sock puppetry.
  • In the forum, be certain to post your threads in the proper board.
  • Do not restore messages that were removed by an admin. When in doubt, address the admin directly and ask them about it.
  • Do not remove replies or threads by other members unless they break a rule. In the event that they have broken a rule, check the "Notify an admin" box while removing the reply so an admin can check it.
  • Do not edit another user's profile, unless that user has set one or more areas where others can edit their profile, and then only in those areas. Every user is responsible for his/her profile.
  • Do not edit another user's comment on a talk page, unless it's to add the Unsigned template.
  • Before changing an important item from an article or rewriting it, ask about it in the talk page. If you don't receive any replies, or if the consensus is that the change is a bad one, keep the article as it is.
  • Every user has the right to a personal sandbox in which to test features, in addition to being able to use the general sandbox. The personal sandbox is a subpage of the individual user's profile. To create a subpage, entitle it "Main page/Subpage's name", without the quotes.
  • If a category is only useful for 10 pages or fewer, then it shouldn't exist. Exceptions include "Candidates for deletion" and other maintenance categories, or if an administrator allows it.
  • If a category is too similar to one we already have (like "Males" and "Male Characters"), it shouldn't be created.
  • No power categories (like "Strength Aliens") or appearance categories (like "Blue Aliens" or "Small Aliens").
  • No speculative categories (like "Possibly Deceased Characters"). This includes "one-time" categories.
  • No categories based on opinions (like "Anti-Heroes").
  • Categories should be as broad as possible.
  • If you do not meet the requirements for voting in a suggestion, you are to refrain from voting. Additionally, the user who makes the suggestion is not allowed to vote in his/her own suggestion.
  • Do not overquote when replying on the forum. Two levels (quoting one user who has quoted another) are the maximum allowed when replying in a thread, and only when there are posts between yours and the person you're replying to.

Common Mistakes and Misconceptions

  • The Anur aliens and ChamAlien weren't scanned like the Andromeda aliens. The Yenaldooshi, the Mummy, Dr. Viktor, Prisoner 775, and Liam are not genetic donors. Their DNA just unlocked the transformation already present in the Omnitrix.
  • The Yenaldooshi is not considered dead, since no corpse was seen. Malware is not considered dead either, as he was seen oozing out of Vilgax's petrified body.
  • Cooper and Darkstar are not Osmosians. They are both just mutant humans like Zombozo and the Circus Freaks.
  • Verdona and Max never got married.
  • All Celestialsapiens are omnipotent.
  • Ben's aliens and Albedo's aliens are the same transformations and don't need separate pages.
