Wiki Code of Conduct

To foster the best possible experience for all, the CSI Wiki community respectfully requests that its visitors and contributors honor this code of conduct. Failure to follow these rules will result in a deletion of your comment and/or content or banning. Some of these rules were adapted from the Wetpaint Central Site Rules / Code of Conduct.

Play nicely with others:
  • Respect your peers — Treat others and their contributions with respect and foster considerate dialog.
  • Do not use offensive language — Inappropriate, crude, or abusive language is not only unacceptable, it’s not a good way to convince anyone of your point. Any posts that contain such language will be deleted.(Note: Posting profanity in a language other than English is also unacceptable and it will be deleted)
  • Remember, there are no stupid questions— Everyone’s input is welcomed and honored. “Flaming” others or demeaning their participation may build your self-esteem but it won’t help build community.
  • Report inappropriate behavior — Remove and/or report to the moderators disrespectful or provocative content, but refrain from seeking vigilante justice.
  • Posting in upper case - In Internet terms, posting in all uppercase is a sign of yelling. Please respect your peers and do not post in uppercase. It's also a courtesy to others to not use ALL uppercase when posting.
AGE REQUIREMENT
  • Per the law, WikiFoundry has an age requirement. A member must be at LEAST 13 years of age in order to create a WikiFoundry account. If you announce yourself as UNDER 13, you will be removed without warning.

  • All videos and photos uploaded to this site should be from the CSI show, cast or characters. Any photos NOT related to CSI, it's cast or characters will be deleted.
  • Any videos/photos containing questionable material, (i.e., illicit, profanity, etc.) will be removed immediately. These types of photos are not allowed on profile pages either. Members will be given a warning and 24 hours to remove them. If the questionable material is NOT removed 24 hours after the member is warned, the member will be banned.
  • Please remember to title any photos/videos you upload. This helps to keep the video and photo library organized.
  • It is against the rules/policy to add links to any illegal download sites for CSI episodes. If you wish to view the latest episode of CSI, please visit CBS.com. Any violation of this rule will result in an immediate ban - no warning.

Also, please remember to not feed the trolls. This will only serve to make things worse since it is what they want. For more information, see Dealing with Flame Wars and Internet Trolls.

Act in Good Faith:
  • Don’t pilfer material — Don’t publish content to which you have no rights. If you publish a photo, icon, etc. that someone else created, make sure you give them the credit for the image, icon, banner, wallpaper, etc.
  • It’s about you, but not about YOU — This site exists to support an organic and communal body of information. Shameless self-promotion and hawking of wares are strictly verboten, not to mention pathetic.
  • No spamming or advertising - This site is a community for CSI fans to chat about the show. There is no posting of advertisements or spamming other members allowed. Your post will be deleted and you will be banned.
  • Please be respectful of the actors/actresses. They feel violated when the long lens paparazzi take photos of them going about their daily lives. Let's show the actors the privacy and respect they ask for and not bring those photos to the CSI Wiki.

Promote the community spirit:
  • Use the Moderators as a resource — Reach out to the Moderators for guidance or advice on how best to leverage the site. They are there to help.
  • Share the experience — Be an ambassador of the community by enrolling others in the discussion, sponsoring a good debate, and setting a good, collaborative example

Sharing of Information:
It is the 21st Century - any and all information is accessible over the Internet. Please do not share email addresses, phone numbers, home addresses, etc. in threads. Get to know someone well before you share this information with them - privately. If you do share any private information, do it over PM (Private Message) not in a thread for all to see. If someone contacts you via PM and asks you for personal information and you're uncomfortable, please notify one of the moderators immediately. This is a community for all, use the Moderators as a resource to assist you. DON'T share information if you are uncomfortable about doing so.

Who are the Moderators and How to Contact them:
  • Here is a list of the Moderators for this site. At any time you have a question, need to report inappropriate behavior, (flaming, foul language, spamming, etc.) feel free to send a message to any of the moderators below. You can click on the link to their name below and it will bring you to their profile page. Click "Send a Message"; send the moderator a message and if you can, add a link to the discussion thread or page. Let the moderator know of the offensive or inappropriate behavior and they will deal with it. All of your PM's (Private Messages) are confidential and follow-ups are handled with discretion.
