Hi everyone! So, after some discussion it has been decided to implement a new feature on how we handle Fanon on this Wiki. This feature is basically the same as what Admins must do before becoming an Admin, that is agreeing to the Policies. So, there is now a Signatures page where all Users must sign using their Wiki Signature in order to make or continue to make Fanon.
Why did we do this?
The whole reason we are doing this is because of two simple facts "Making Fanon is a privilege, not a right" and many, many new Users do not read the Rules of Fanon. Therefore, this Signature agreement is to say you have read and agree to the Rules of Fanon.
So, why do I have to sign?
For New Users, you have to sign in order to actually start making any type of Fanon. For current Fanon writers, you have to sign in order to continue making Fanon and continue editing old Fanon.
What happens if I refuse to sign?
If you refuse to Sign then you simply won't have the right to make, continue making or edit Fanon anymore.
What are the consequences if I don't sign and make or continue to make Fanon?
If you continue to make Fanon, or if you're new and are starting a Fanon without signing, then the Fanon article you make will be immediately deleted and you will receive a message on your Message Wall from an Admin explaining that you must sign. If you make Fanon once again without signing your account will be blocked.
How will Users, new and current, know to sign?
Well for current Users I have Highlighted this Discussion, which means every User gets a notification about this Thread. If you choose to ignore this Thread however, or if you're new then there will be a link to the Signatures page on the Navigation bar above, as well as a link in the Community Messages box on the Recent Wiki Activity page. There will also be links to this thread and the Signatures page in the News section on the Main Page. Finally, specifically for new Users, there will be a link in the automated Welcome Message when you first sign up to the Wiki. So there is no excuse that you did not know about it.
Well, that's about it for the explanation. If you have any questions simply ask! We hope you find these terms acceptable. So, if you're a Fanon creator, or an aspiring Fanon creator, go to the Signatures page now and sign using your Wiki signature! Thank you.
