[edit]

Vandalism on Wookieepedia is defined as any edits made in a deliberate attempt to lower the quality of the wiki. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Replacing the text of an article or a section of an article with blank text.
  • Uploading inappropriate images, or replacing existing images with inappropriate images.
  • Adding nonsense, obscenities, or bad jokes to existing articles.
  • Creating new articles which are entirely off-topic nonsense.
  • Moving a page to a new, nonsensical title.
  • Adding external links to pages for the purpose of advertising. (This is a form of spam, sometimes called "linkspam" or "spamdalism".)

An editor who vandalises the wiki may be blocked from making further edits, according to Wookieepedia:Blocking policy.

Any good-faith attempt to improve Wookieepedia, even if it is misguided, should not be considered vandalism. This may include:

  • Adding information to the wiki from unreliable sources (assuming the editor in question is not aware that the sources are unreliable).
  • Adding information which may or may not be correct, but doing so in a way which violates Wookieepedia:Manual of Style, Wookieepedia:Layout Guide, the rules of MediaWiki syntax, or the rules of American English grammar and spelling.
  • Removing information which the editor believes to be incorrect.
