Wowpedia:User naming policy
|This policy was adopted due to being grandfathered and implemented.
|See also: guidelines, administrators|
This page is an official policy on Wowpedia.
This policy has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that all users should follow.
An account's access to edit Wowpedia may be blocked if its name violates Wowpedia 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 bodily functions) of any kind. They also should not inappropriately refer to human anatomy.
Names referring to drugs or other controlled substances, or any illegal activity, are forbidden.
Impersonation, multiple names, or trademarks
Impersonation of a Blizzard employee or another Wowpedia user, Sock puppetry (or creating/using multiple accounts), or 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) are 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.
