This policy is meant to set-up some guidelines for administrators to use when blocking a vandal. Please note that these are only guidelines and the actual length of blocking is entirely up to the administrator.
This wiki is very hard on vandals as they only get one warning before being blocked.
After the first act of vandalism, the vandal is given a warning via their talk page by an administrator. There are some cases that users will be blocked on the first act of vandalism which will be listed later in the article.
After the vandal has been warned and has committed a second time an administrator will block them, using the suggested blocking time as defined in the next section.
Suggested Blocking Times
Clicking on the acts of vandalism will direct you to the policy in which they are described.

|Removing Valid Content||Warning||1 Week||1 Month||2 Months|

As previously stated, these guidelines are only suggestions and an administrator will use their judgement and common sense when deciding upon a blocking time.
If a user commits multiple offenses at one time, with the most common case including Off-Topic Content, the most severe punishment will be issued. For example:
- UserX decides to have a little fun and replaces the word Lightsaber in the Jedi Knight article with dick.
