    • It is allowed to say that you don't like a contender, but hate will not be accepted.
    • Spreading hate will immediately lead to a ban, how long the ban will last is depending on the heaviness of the hate.
    • If the hate is not ban-worthy, you'll get a warning first.
  • Removing page content/Inserting false information:
    • Inserting false information or removing the content of a page will lead to an immediate ban. This type of editing is completely unnecessary and there's nothing funny about it.
    • When the spam is not enough for a ban, you can get a warning first.


If you do any of the following things, you will revieve a strike. If you do something we don't like that's not on this page, you will also get half a strike.

Strikes will be result in a ban, how long this ban will be depends on the rule you've broken.
