The Harry Potter Wiki's chat policy governs the use of the Chat feature, found on the right side, or rail, of most pages. The chat allows for users to converse in a real-time, text-based discussions and is intended for more social or casual conversations. It is not intended as a replacement for the Forum or Talk Pages to discuss edits to articles or changes to site policies.
Rules for chat
- No Personal Attacks: The primary rule for chat, and enforced site-wide, is that personal attacks are never allowed for any reason.
- No swearing or explicit language: Language used and topics discussed should be suitable for users or all ages.
Failing to follow these rules will result first in a warning. Further rule-breaking can result in being kicked from the chat for a limited time, or blocked or banned from the site as needed. The lengths of such measures will depend on the nature of the offense and the user's history of behavior.
