Policies & Guidelines


Welcome to the Guidelines & Policies page! The rules and guides listed here apply to the entirety of the Blue Bloods Wiki. All users are expected to adhere to these policies and guidelines at all times. Breaking any of the policies will result in a ban for a certain amount of time depending on how large the offense. Once your ban is lifted, if you continue to break the policies you will be given one warning before being blocked again.

Do not be afraid of getting started on the wiki! All edits are welcome whether small or big, just be sure they follow our policies. 🙂


General

As always, respect others! This means no insulting, harassing, degrading or defaming others on this wiki. Everyone has their own opinion and is entitled to it. Agree to disagree sometimes or simply walk away from an argument. If you believe someone is purposefully trolling others to start fights, please notify an admin!

In the event of an edit war, please make an effort to communicate about the disagreed upon information between the parties involved. If no agreement can be reached, include a third party to offer mediation.

Guidelines

Editing

Please read the entire article before making changes. Some details or continuity issues may be addressed later in the article.

When adding content, especially important character details, please use the insert reference feature. This reduces comments asking where certain details are mentioned in the show, or edits being rolled back.

Feel free to add relevant information but to NOT simply copy and paste from other sites. If you see a page with copied information, please either re-write it or notify the admin. The only exception is for episode summaries, at the top of episode pages. These short one to two sentence blurbs may be from another source, given their brevity.

When creating an episode page, please follow the formatting of the other episode pages.

Images

When uploading images, please make sure that the file names are short and descriptive. Episode images should be labeled with the season number and the episode number (ex: 01x03 or S1 E3). For multiple images from one episode, use an underscore (_) and number the images sequentially to differentiate (ex: 02x10_05 or S2 E10_5) or label with a short description and number (ex: 06x15_Baez03 or S3 E4_promo-1).

Main images for each episode should be labeled BB SS EE.jpg (ex: BB S3 E15.jpg) and be the highest quality possible.

For images of characters or cast, please label with their first and last name separated with an underscore, a dash, and the season and the next sequential number (ex: Danny_Reagan-05; Will_Estes-06). If known, a short description should be added (ex: Vanessa_Ray-OuttakeS06)

Comments

All comments should have decent spelling, grammar, punctuation, and should not contain inappropriate or inflammatory language.

Comments harassing other users will be deleted and could result in the poster being banned.

Irrelevant and suggestive posts about other users, characters, or cast will be deleted. While you are entitled to your opinion it does not belong in the comments on an article.

Comments should be related to the content and construction of the article page it is being posted on. Discussions of the characters, plots, and opinions thereof should be posted in the discussions section.

Comments should not be used to start arguments or link off-site.
