Blockland Wiki
There have been many Blockland wikis on Wikia, and none of them have succeeded. I have decided to make a wiki that is more flexible, useful, and not Wikia.

Rules
We have a few rules when it comes to the BLW (Blockland Wiki), if you do not follow these rules, you will be banned.
Do not spam. Nonsensical/useless things will be removed.
Deleting/wiping pages of all content for no reason is not allowed.
You get 1 account and 1 account only, no sock puppetry, ban evasion, etc.
(If you are permitted to make a new account by a sysop, you may.)
Don't be a richard, flaming is not allowed.
NSFW content such as research, gore, scat, etc. is banned.
Do not advertise your other wiki, site, etc. unless permitted by a sysop.
No biased pages or edits, nobody gives a stuff about your internet beef with another user. State the facts and the facts only.
Use the same name for the wiki on the BLF or in Blockland, impersonating someone is not allowed.

All bans are permanent.

Sysops (WE NEED SYSOPS!)
  • Eon

What is a Sysop and how to be one
A Sysop is a site administrator of the Blockland Wiki. They can ban people, lock, delete, and protect pages, and other useful tools to moderate the wiki. To become a Sysop, you must fulfill these requirements.
  • A BLF/BL account (not banned, pm ban counts as ban, if you have previous banned accounts you're fine, I mean a currently unbanned one)
  • A BLW account
To become a Sysop, you will have to contact me via PM and we can work something out. There will be a max of 3 Sysops including me, so if you want to be apart of this, contact now.

you should also add a rule against biased edits/pages

And so it begins again

There's been many attempts at documenting Blockland and trying to maintain them, but they've all failed due to trolls, not enough dedication, people quitting, people forgetting it's existence, etc

And so it begins again
1. Trolls can easily be stopped with administration
2. No other Blockland wikis had any publicity anywhere Blockland related, and they were forgotten about easily.
3. They usually quit due to the faults of Wikia. Wikia is commonly used by people who have 0 knowledge in actually running a wiki and just want to for the sake of it. That means it's usually unmoderated, has no useful information, and is generally a bad wiki. People do not want to be on a bad wiki.
4. See 2

That would be a good idea to have, have all the essentials out in front.

nullables was the most successful and long lasting but all activity dropped and i was left just removing the occasional bot spam with 0 contributions to the site

new lil rule about impersonation

bump also I'm working on the new main page

It took me a while to get that Sysop means System OPerator.

I made two tiny pages for the sword and gun with basic information. They will eventually get fleshed out.

Placeholder pages are un-needed junk. Finish your articles in Notepad/Notepad++ before posting them.
