Brickipedia's Policies


Brickipedia has many policies, which are outlined here.

Use Common Sense[edit source]

Main article: Use Common Sense

Following this is simple; use common sense. If doing something might harm the wiki, don't do it. If you think that saying something might hurt another user, don't say it. Also, if a rule prevents you from improving Brickipedia, ignore it.

Blocking, Deletion, and Protection Policies[edit source]

These policies say when a user or IP should be blocked, article types that should be deleted, and types of pages that should be protected.
There are various offences that could cause a user or IP to be blocked. Any pages comprising solely of these things will be deleted, as-well. The offences are; Spamming, swearing, removal of content, moving pages to a bad name, impersonating another user, personal attacks, inappropriate username, explicit bad language, racism, uploading inappropriate images.

Naming Conventions[edit source]

Main article: Naming conventions

This specifies how articles should be named. Set articles follow the pattern of "<set number> <set name>", for instance: "6552 Rocky River Retreat". Part articles use "Part:<design ID>", for instance "Part:3004". Minifigure articles should be given the name that LEGO officially gives them, for example a product box or their website. This applies unless the name clearly contradicts the subject.

Signature Policy[edit source]

Main article: Signature Policy

These are the guidlines for a Brickipedian's signature.

  • Signatures must not be more than 100 characters of code, or 50 other characters of text displayed
  • Signatures should not contain anything that breaks a page's formatting, including line breaks. They should not cover up any of the page, and should not have fixed positions.
  • There must be no unclosed tags or markup, and no categories
  • All images must be less than 30 pixels high.

Blog policy[edit source]

When used well, blogs can be a valuable addition to the wiki.
Main article: Blog Policy

Users on Brickipedia can create user blogs, and blog comments, however there is one major rule. Blogs and blog comments must have a point. Anything that could be interpreted as spam, nonsense, or that is pointless may be deleted.

Chat and IRC policies[edit source]

Main articles: Chat policy and IRC Policy

Brickipedia has two social interaction places, the Chat and IRC. On these places these rules must be followed.

  • Don't attack other users, however you feel about them.
  • Don't swear of use offensive or rude language.
  • Don't type IN ALL CAPS. Emphasizing ONE word is ok, though.
  • Keep on topic, and don't be disruptive. Don't say random things that have no relevence.
  • No sexual or religious points. These can flame up very easily, especially religious ones.

Sockpuppet Policy[edit source]

Sockpuppets are rarely allowed.
Main article: Sockpuppet policy

Sockpuppetry is when a user creates more than one account in order to be able to vote more than one time in places such as the forums. If a user is abusing multiple accounts, all of their accounts will be blocked. If you have very good reason to think that a user is a sockpuppet, contact a ShoutWiki staff member, who can find out if they are. There are few exceptions to the sockpuppet policy. The main one is Bots. Bots are semi-automated users who can perform repetative tasks very quickly.

Theme-Specific Policies[edit source]

There are a few policies on Brickipedia that only apply to a certain theme. These are mainly about the addition of in-universe infomation or the release of secret codes. The following themes have specific policies:

The policies for these themes can be seen here.

What Brickipedia is not[edit source]

Brickipedia is a LEGO encyclopedia, but there are certain things that Brickipedia is not:

  • Brickipedia is not another set database
  • Brickipedia is not a shopping website
  • Brickipedia is not a collection of LEGO ads
  • Brickipedia is not Wookieepedia, Harry Potter Wiki, etc.

And what your user page is not:

  • Your user page is not your primary contribution to this wiki

Manual of Style and Category Guidelines[edit source]

These say how Brickipedia articles should be styled, and what they should contain. The Manual of Style shows the standards that articles should confirm to, and which headings and sections an article should have. The Category Guidelines say which categories an article should have.
