Wiki previously had no rules written out. I have written set of rules that users must follow that were already expected in the past. Please read this before you continue editing and follow accordingly.
[[Animaniacs Wiki: Policy]]
The '''Animaniacs Wiki''' has several rules for the site and breaking them will result in staff warnings and bans at the best judgement of the staff member. Ignorance of the rules is '''not''' an excuse for breaking them. '''Administrators have the right to update or change the rules at anytime, depending on the sitation.'''
*'''Breaking policy on affiliated wikis'''
**Our affiliated wikis are a connection of wikis connected because they pertain to the ''Looney Tunes'', [[Warner Bros.]], or any Golden Age cartoon universe in some way. Please follow all their policies as well. Some administrators of the Animaniacs Wiki are also administrators of said affiliated wikis and may ban you on this wiki as well for your behavior caused on the other wikis. For a list of affiliated wikis with the Animaniacs and Looney Tunes Wikis, you can go [[w:c:looneytunes:Looney Tunes Wiki:Affiliated Wikis|here]].
**Airdates for the episodes must use the dates that they air on television in United States, or in case of the revival, the day they are released on Hulu. In addition, dates that the episodes air internationally will not be allowed.
**As a result of inappropriate and irrelevant comments in the article comments, the wiki has recently reverted back to talk pages. Article talk pages are used to discuss how to improve the article. Comments that pertain to the subject ("[[Minerva Mink]] is cute"; "this is the worst episode of the show") are not allowed. Please take such to the fourms or your own userpage, the Discord chat for the [[w:c:looneytunes|Looney Tunes Wiki]], or your blog. Make sure to sign your comments with <nowiki>~~~~</nowiki> at the end. Users who repeatedly fail to sign their comments will be punished.
**Our chat is no longer available. If you wish to chat about ''Animaniacs'', you may jump to our affiliated wiki's chat, the [[w:c:looneytunes:Looney Tunes Wiki:Chat|Looney Tunes Wiki Discord chat]]. Please read their chat policy before you enter. The administrators on the [[Looney Tunes Wiki]] have every right to kick or ban you from the chat. They also have the right to report to us about your policy breaking. Our administrators will then take action based on their own discretion. Since we are an affiliated wiki with the Looney Tunes Wiki, any rules you break on their chat may get you banned on this wiki.
**You may not ignore important messages by staff. If you continue to persist with your behavior after being warned, you will be banned.
**You must cite your sources if you insert any information that can be challenged or questioned. An example of this would be inserting a source for when the episode aired on television in the United States or inserting a source confirming that an episode of the revival series on Hulu was announced. Any interviews mentioned on Animaniacs Wiki must be sourced. Unsourced information may be removed without notice.
**Repeatedly adding broken links to pages that are not upcoming media of ''[[Animaniacs]]'' will result in a ban, unless you plan on making the page. However, the page should've already been made before you added the links.
**Gender categories, such as males and females will be deleted from the site and all edits will be reverted. No categories on protagonists and antagonists may be created as well. In addition, the categories major, minor, secondary and one-time characters are not allowed. Irrelevant and unrelated categories are also not allowed. '''Please ask an administrator before creating categories!'''
**New pages, with nonsense, unrelated content and spam will be deleted.
**Any inappropriate or sexually suggestive language will be removed from the Wiki and users will be subject to punishment. This goes for images and videos too.
**If you currently have a sanction or ban on you, you cannot create another account to dodge your ban. You must appeal your ban first and see if it gets approved. If you continue to create accounts to dodge your ban, you may face indefinite ban on your main account.
**Superfluous content, subject but not limited to blog posts, article comments, message wall content, etc. will be deleted.
**Only images from the show and its production and staff who worked on the crew are allowed. In addition, the network images of networks that have aired the show at any given time are allowed. These images are copyrighted, but are allowed under the 1976 Copyright Act, which allows uploading small bits of copyrighted material to inform people about a topic, which is what this wiki is about. '''Any images that are copyrighted/don't belong to you that you upload may not be altered or changed for your own preference! This is a copyright violation because you are altering work that is not yours. You will be banned.''' Images with the TV rating notice or logos made by the network are allowed.
**If you don't put an image on a page within a twenty-four hour period, it'll be deleted. If you aren't going to put an image on a page, ''don't upload it''. We want our unused images section to remain clean and empty and help adding images that are there right now will be greatly appreciated and rewarded. Do not post images not related to ''Animaniacs'' unless you plan to put them on your userpage. The images on your userpage cannot have content that is not suitable for the Internet. If you no longer wish to have a images not related to ''Animaniacs'', then tag it for deletion.
**You may upload the short segments ([[Katie Ka-Boom]], [[Good Idea, Bad Idea]], [[Wheel of Morality]], [[Chicken Boo]], etc) or longer segments from YouTube or Vimeo (five minutes maximum) of the episodes on the wiki and your userpage. '''Do not upload full episodes (22 minute long episodes) of the show onto the wiki or your userpage, even if the video is on YouTube and isn't yours. This is a copyright violation and Warner Bros. and Amblin Entertainment do not take this lightly. Warner Bros. and Amblin Entertainment do have legal right to check this wiki for episode copyright violations and will ask that they be removed.''' You may private message to other users the full episodes if you wish, assuming they are willing to trade contact information. Do not post clips not related to ''Animaniacs'' unless you plan to put them on your userpage. The videos on your userpage cannot have content that is not suitable for the Internet. If you no longer wish to have a video not related to ''Animaniacs'', then tag it for deletion. You may also not upload full episodes of other television shows onto your userpage. The copyright owners of said shows, while highly unlikely, do have legal right to check this wiki for their episode copyright violations and will ask that they be removed. Clips (five minutes for an episode and ten minutes for a movie maximum) are acceptable though. If you no longer wish to have a video on your page, tag it for deletion and an administrator will come delete it.
**Fanfiction images are not allowed on the wiki due to legal disputes with the creator of the content. Fanfiction episodes and characters are also not allowed. We are an encyclopedia, not a fansite.
*'''Copyright and plagiarism'''
**Respect work that is copyrighted. This means don't claim any work on ''Animaniacs'' to be yours, don't post full episodes of the show on the wiki, and don't upload fanfiction images. Do not copy and paste work word-for-word from the Internet without crediting, unless it is a plot summary (Plot summaries are acceptable, but it is preferred you write them on your own.). This is plagiarism. Users who break the copyright and plagiarism rules will be subject to punishment.
**Do not remove warnings on your userpage or message walls by admins. This will earn yourself a 2 week ban without message wall access without warning.
**There are future episodes of ''Animaniacs'' ordered for Hulu. As such, no episode speculation is allowed on this Wiki's talk pages.
**No irrelevant conversations are allowed on article comments. They will be removed and the user will be warned.
**The use of all capital letters anywhere is discouraged and will result in several warnings, before weekly bans.
**Discrimination, bullying, fighting, racism, provoking, threats, and/or other forms of harassment are not tolerated on the Wiki in any fashion.
**Asking for personal information, such as your age, your home address, your password, or your Social Security number is not allowed. If you see someone doing that, please report it to an administrator right way. You may, however, exchange in private.
**While political discussion isn't banned, it is recommended to not be discussed in the forums.
**While religion discussion isn't banned, it is recommended to not be discussed in the forums.
**Only select profanity may be used. The words fuck, shit, bitch, or any other slurs are not allowed unless they are starred or quoted from an official piece of ''Animaniacs'' material. Please see [[w:c:looneytunes:Looney Tunes Wiki:Allowed Words|this page]] for a list of words that are and are not allowed.
