Spam Policy

While Bluwiki encourages the use of this site for most purposes there are a few uses that are against this site's principles. The biggest one is spam and/or vandalism to the main community pages. A good example of this behavior can be found here. Repeat behavior of either spam or banning will earn any user a ban from the site until they get in contact with Bluwiki's admins.

Deletion Policy

Deleting Pages

Please see Category:Pages to delete and Template talk:Pd.

Deleting User Accounts

Accounts with contributions cannot be deleted since this would allow another user to create the account, and claim authorship of those edits. It is not possible for your edits to be removed entirely. They can only be reassigned to something else so as not to violate the GNU Free Documentation License. Since the edits cannot be removed completely (even to free up server space in the case of deleted articles), removing the account would thus potentially violate copyrights by allowing for such authorship claims.

If you decide after creating an account, particularly if you did so using your real name, that you would rather be anonymous, you can have your account renamed. You can request this here. When this is done, your contributions list will be assigned to the new user name.

You may also request your user and talk page be deleted.

Any talk pages that you have signed will still display your former user name. These need to be changed manually by editing the pages concerned. If you feel strongly about your name no longer appearing on the site, you can edit these pages to remove your signature. The easiest way to find these is by clicking "what links here" from your user page.

Personal Information

Personal Information is any non-public information about a living person that is factual in nature that would negatively impact his or her personal life if it were to become public. Personal information can include, but is not limited to names, birthdays, telephone numbers, and social security numbers.

Personal information may be included anywhere in BluWiki by a user, but at their own risk. The user posting the information must clearly identify themselves (meaning that the information cannot be posted by third parties or without the person's direct consent).

If you feel that personal information has been posted somewhere, please notify an administrator so that it may be taken care of. Please be aware that the sooner you contact an administrator, the easier it will be for the administrator to remove unwanted information.
