This is a short list of our policies here on SimCity Wiki:

On user behavior

Keep it civil

Do not make personal attacks on other people. If you need to criticize another user’s argument, do so without attacking them as a person. Do not use bigoted language, including slurs which degrade another person or group of people based on gender, race, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, etc.

Be a productive member

Contribute to the wiki in line with the established processes and conventions. Need help? Ask an administrator! Disrupting the wiki with “edit warring” over differing opinions of a topic with another user or group of users is not productive.

No excessive self-promotion

The wiki is a collaborative community resource for SimCity. It is NOT a free place to advertise your related website, YouTube channel, blog, social media account, etc. Have a question about whether your link would be welcome? Ask an administrator!

On content

Inclusion

SimCity Wiki recognizes the admission of a great deal of articles pertaining to individual sites, programs, lots, bats, SC organizations, notable community members, and/or mods related to the SimCity series. This policy aims to make SimCity Wiki a large database of information of everything related to SimCity and the SimCity community.

Editing

SimCity Wiki allows all users to edit articles, images, and even policies of the community for the sake of creating a collaborative source of information for the SimCity series. Please note, to edit a policy it is recommended that the user first set up a discussion or vote in the discussion page to understand community insight.

Wiki dumping

Wiki dumping is the act of copying a whole article or parts of it from another wiki, commonly Wikipedia. This is strongly undesirable as sometimes it may replace a more unique article to this wiki and replace it with another, long, red link filled Wikipedia page.

While copying from Wikipedia is possible as both SimCity Wiki and Wikipedia shares the same license (CC-BY-SA), unique is better on this wiki, so please write your own pages instead of copying from Wikipedia or another wiki when possible.

If you do copy from Wikipedia, try not to copy the whole page and make sure to attribute your source with {{Wikipedia}}. If you see someone replace or create an article with lots of red links that is long, tell an administrator to delete the article, and then they will tell the person to start over without copying.

Likewise, using images from Wikimedia Commons is permissible as long as you attribute the source using {{From Wikimedia}} and licensed correctly according to the original image.
