Rules and requirements[edit | edit source]

  • Don't get involved in wiki administration.
    • Only handle spam and obvious vandalism.
  • If you aren't sure, don't touch it and bring it up to local admins/Gamepedia staff.
  • For particular spam making the rounds, bring it up to the Gamepedia team in the private Slack channel so the global abuse filters can be tweaked.
  • When making edits to remove spam/vandalism, include a link in the edit summary that points to this Help wiki page. This helps users to understand what GRASP is.
  • For a more complete explanation, see Blocking users.
