With recent events, the administration team has been discussing internally about some information that was brought to our attention, regarding the behaviour of certain individuals.
To keep a long and disheartening story short, we have seen firm evidence of a collaborated, meditated scheme to harass certain community members, undermining their efforts to enjoy roleplaying for them and anyone who participates with them. It is a worrying confirmation that world 42 continues to have toxic elements.
We maintain a policy of neutrality on this wiki, to keep our platform open to everyone, without the fear of their commentary being modified or deleted, out of bias or censorship. However, our neutrality is not absolute. We also balance this with moral and written standards, to filter out vitriolic and substandard content that violate either our own or FANDOM’s rules.
In this case, these individuals have decided to take advantage of our neutrality. They have attempted on multiple occasions to violate our standards, vandalising the wiki with throwaway accounts in an attempt to incite a edit war.
We do not tolerate harassment in any form, and our platform will not be used to facilitate it.
Therefore, we have unanimously agreed to take the following action:
* The key individuals inciting this have been banned from the wiki.
* The “Aren Era” has been purged from the History of Falador page. Attempts to restore it will be considered vandalism.
* New accounts will now be required to be at least 1 week old, before they can edit any page.
As back with the TSG debacle in early 2016, we’re informing you about these actions for transparency. We don’t perform such acts lightly, but it is in the better interest of the wiki community as a whole. It is now up to the roleplaying community on how to move forward from this.
