Welcome to the Policies page of Owari no Seraph Wiki. The policies in each part of this wiki are guidelines to inform people on what works best for the time period. A policy should be updated to continue ensuring that the wiki is an all encompassing encyclopedia with constructive user conduct. To view the policies, please click the policy you want to see on the navigation, overall currently there are:
A few general guidelines:
  1. BE BOLD! in updating pages. Go ahead, it's a wiki!
    Encourage others, including those who disagree with you, likewise to BE BOLD!
  2. Ignore all rules. If the rules discourage you from improving or maintaining the wiki's quality, ignore them.
  3. When in doubt, take it to the talk page. There is all the time in the world. Mutual respect is the guiding behavioural principle of Fandom and, although everyone knows that their writing may be edited, it is easier to accept changes if the reasons for them are understood. If you discuss changes on the article's talk (or discussion) page before you make them, you should reach consensus faster and happier.
  4. Respect copyright. Wikia uses the GNU Free Documentation License. Everything you contribute must be compatible with that license.
  5. Decent edit summaries and clear and transparent explanations are universally appreciated. Other editors need to understand your process, and it also helps you yourself to understand what you did after a period of reflection on an article. Please state what you changed and why. If the explanation is too long, add more on the discussion page.
  6. Assume good faith; in other words, try to consider that the person on the other end of the discussion is a thinking, rational being who is trying to positively contribute to the project — unless, and only unless, you have firm, solid, and objective proof to the contrary. Merely disagreeing with you is no such proof.
  7. Particularly, don't revert good faith edits. Reverting is too powerful sometimes. Do not succumb to the temptation, unless you're reverting very obvious vandalism (like "LALALALAL*&*@#@THIS_SUX0RZ", or someone changing "1+2=3" to "1+2=17"). If content is contested, discuss the matter in talk.
  8. No personal attacks. Name calling is never an answer, explain a better way if you find user contributions or behaviour disagreeable. If possible, fix it yourself (but see above).
  9. Be graceful: Regardless of user conduct, remain committed to supporting Seraph of the End.
  10. Sign your posts on talk pages using ~~~~ prints your username and timestamp when you hit Save. Remember not to sign on mainspace articles.
  11. Use the preview button; found on the right under "Edit summary", it helps prevents edit conflicts and mistakes.
It's important to have fun but try to make sure those around you have fun too!
