Blockingbanner

Blocking/Banning is the method by which administrators or bureaucrats technically prevent users from editing and/or commenting on the wiki. Blocks may be applied to user accounts, to IP addresses, and to ranges of IP addresses, for either a definite or an indefinite time. Blocked users can continue to access wiki, but cannot edit any page (including their own user pages), and even in most cases, their own user talk pages. This all depends on the type of block you have.

You may request a blocking of any users or tips if they consistently destroy the integrity and content of Video Game Wiki material. You may leave a message on the Admin's message wall and tell the reason of blocking. You must show the evidence of the user misbehaving and that user's username along with what they were doing. To make sure you don't get blocked, look at the Rules.

Blocking Duration 

Depending on the seriousness of the offence, the blocking duration is usually as followed. Admins will act on their discretion from case to case. For the chart, head to the Wiki Rules.

About Blocking

When you have found users committing the follow actions to the wiki, you may consider to request for blocking. Talk to an Admin about the person by telling them the trouble and username.

The comment section when you are blocked

Sometimes, a user may create or log into another user account they've created. This usually is unknown. Although, sometimes, the machine figures it out if you have logged into the blocked account then back to the unblocked one. You will not be able to edit and the comment section will look like this.
