San Francisco Answers is a project from Wikia Wikianswers sites. The wiki was born on March 16th 2010, then the San Francisco category questions from Wikianswers were moved here. Now we are approaching 300 questions. Our goal is to reach at least 1,000 questions and have answers to the most popular asked questions about this wonderful city! We hope you enjoy the Q+A site and don't forget to visit San Francisco Wiki and help out!
As per our Wikia's terms, please remember that any user under the age of 13 is forbidden from using Wikia, or creating an account in the Wikia site:
In addition to that, vandalism is not tolerated. Insults, cursing or adult language are not allowed, please refrain from using that type of communication.
We have the right to block your account if there is enough evidence that suggests you're here for trolling, spamming, or anything similar that causes impairment to the community.
We encountered extremely high number of vandalism in the past with some annoying computing questions that had nothing to do with the subject of this wiki. Clearing up vandalism takes some of our admins hours to clean up. Admin work in a wiki, is volunteer work, that means a lot of effort is put into a wiki, and there is no-pay. Because of this we are going to take more stern measures with anonymous users who use profanity.
Three (3) is the limit Edit
- If you have vandalized three questions, you will get a warning. However, if your edits contain profane, sexually explicit language, you WILL be blocked for 3 days immediately.
Using profane language tells us that you indeed want to cause harm to the wiki. The subject of this wiki in particular is children friendly, there is no room for sex here. Please, do not use it.
- If you've exceeded 10 vandal edits where you made use of sexually explicit language, you will get a 2 weeks block.
In Q&A wikis, it is common for questions to enter in the system rapidly, minutes apart, rather than a common wiki in which articles are not created as often. People create questions, and someone else adds content to the page. In a normal wiki, creating an article doesn't just involve the name. It may involve a lot of text, so it isn't too often that people create articles in common wikis. Because of that, block policies are very different here.
- If you come back with a new IP address, evading a block, you will then be blocked for 3 months.
Meaning you go back to the same questions and user pages, and insert profanity giving us enough proof that you may be the same person who vandalized before. We are aware some of our users are using IP generators. Please DO NOT evade blocks.
If you are given a warning by an admin on this site, please try to do your best not to redo whatever got you the warning. Although you own your talkpage, and you can remove content as desired, a warning from an admin or Wikia staff should not be tampered with. You can archive your talk page if desired Special:Mytalk/Archive_1, Special:Mytalk/Archive_2, however it is advised this done when the page is long and old. A link to it as archives should be included in your talk page for easy access.
- In the near future our Project:Policy page will shed more light about our wiki's policies.
