Blogs are ways to communicate with other users in a more casual and open manner than in talk pages or forums. In blogs, users have the ability to quickly and easily comment on opinions, as well as share ideas quickly and efficiently. While blogs are more lightly regulated, there are some restrictions to prevent pointless blogs.
- Blogs must contain some content. Short, few-sentence blogs, or blogs lacking sufficient content to begin a conversation are forbidden and subject to administrative deletion.
- This means blogs must have a minimum length of about a paragraph, and contain a few substantial ideas in it.
- Rudeness and the insulting of other users will not be tolerated. Remember that other users may have opinions that may contradict your own. Be respectful.
- Blogs containing advertising may be subject to deletion, depending on the content of the blog.
- Any blog's title may not be identical to an article's title.
- Blogs must be related to One Piece or to the One Piece Wiki.
- Blogs about future bounties are not allowed.
- Blogs which only compare the strengths of two characters are not allowed.
- Blogs with comment sections that get out of hand (ex: turn into flame wars) will have the comments locked.
- Blogs are not allowed to have any categories added to them aside from Category:Blog posts.
The One Piece Wiki has an official Discord chat server that anyone can join. It can be accessed here. Below are the information and rules for the server, which can also be found on dedicated channels in the server itself.
- Per the Discord Terms of Service, you must be 13 or older to join. Users who are found to be underage will be banned immediately.
- No NSFW (Not Safe For Work) content (includes inappropriate avatars and nicknames).
- No spam (includes unnecessary flooding, role-playing, disrupting conversations and overuse of symbols, mentions, emojis and gifs and repetitive words).
- No racism, sexism, homophobia or other kinds of hate speech, slurs, trolling or hostile behavior.
- Swearing is allowed, but do not take it too far.
- Avoid public drama, solve any issues in private or DM a moderator.
- No advertising unless being given explicit permission by a moderator (includes inviting people to other servers).
- No malware.
- Use only English (unless you are quoting text in the context of the series).
- No awkward topics, like religion, politics, flirting, etc. This rule will mainly be enforced if such discussion results in the aforementioned public drama.
- Do not excessively use caps, lock, "spoiler" tag, or message replies. Avoid spoiling intentionally.
- People harassing, mass advertising their servers, sending malware or disturbing other members via DM will be banned.
- Abide to the channel descriptions and do not post off-topic content in a channel. Violating this rule multiple times will lead to warnings.
- Linking to other Discord servers is not allowed and will trigger an automatic warning from the server bot.
- Users who are banned from editing the wiki are also banned from the Discord server for the same amount of time as their wiki ban.
- Any further issue not stated is up to the discretion of moderators.
The server has a three-step disciplinary system: Warn, Jail, and Ban. Continued rule breaking after receiving the first punishment will result in the second and possibly third punishments. Our administrators and chat moderators are in charge of upholding the rules and levying punishments when necessary.
- Warn: The user is muted for a short time (around ten minutes).
- Jail: The user will be confined to a single channel, not having access to the other channels. They will remain there for around a few hours at the discretion of moderators.
- Ban: If bad behavior continues despite the user receiving the previous punishments, they will be banned either temporarily or permanently at the discretion of moderators.
Certain egregious actions, such as posting pornographic content or other extremely disruptive material, will result in the offending user being banned immediately.
When a user joins the server, they will be given the Aspiring Pirates role. If the user possesses a FANDOM account, they may message an admin or mod with a link to their account and they will be given the Crewmates role. Crewmates possess some minor abilities that Aspiring Pirates do not have.
