This page is an official policy on WoWWiki.

This policy has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that all users should follow.

  • Feel free to propose any changes to this policy, but please make sure that changes you make follow the official process and reflect consensus on the discussion page before you put them into practice. Any big changes need to be Adopted or Decreed to be enforced as policy.

User accounts are administered by Wikia (and a username that works on WoWWiki will work on any other Wikia site). However, an account's access to edit WoWWiki may be blocked if its name violates WoWWiki policy.

Harassment and discriminatory names

User names should not have any racial or ethnic connotations. They should not be defamatory (or particularly carry any connotation whatsoever) towards any person, or any religious or ethnic group, or against any gender, sexual orientation, race, or creed.


Names should not refer to sexual acts (or other inappropriate body functions) of any kind. They should not inappropriately refer to human anatomy or any bodily functions.

Names referring to drugs or other controlled substances, or any illegal activity, are forbidden.

Impersonation, multiple names, or trademarks

Impersonation of a Blizzard or Wikia employee, or another WoWWiki user is forbidden. Sock puppetry (or creating/using multiple accounts) is also not allowed. Creating pages in the User namespace under the name of a user whose account does not exist (thus giving the appearance that the user exists) is not permitted.

Using registered trademarks in names is not allowed.


Names which advertise a brand (or otherwise promote a certain product) are against policy.

If there are indications the account in question is intended for use in spamming, it will be blocked, and further accounts will be automatically blocked from editing.


Unless otherwise indicated, violations will result in the account being blocked from editing indefinitely, but the user can make another account to continue editing under a username which abides by policy.
