A block on a wikia is the restriction of being able to edit or talk on a wikia. Blocks can last from a short minute to a long lifetime.

A perfect way to get blocked is to violate the rules of the wikia.

Banishment from the WikiaEdit
Being kicked off the wikia is a humiliation no one wants to suffer.
How you get yourself banned?Edit
You get banned by failing to follow the rules to the point that it becomes intolerable. This would be doing something such as mass spamming, blaming people for cyberbullying twice, starting several flame wars & failing to conduct yourself on the wikia for several times
On the user screen, viewable by only administrators, will be a number of the times the user has been blocked & why.
The counts for certain rules are cumulative. If you've violated both failed conduct & profanity at the same time, the number goes on to your page as 2 ones. If you use profane language while failing to conduct yourself two more times, even though for failed conduct, it'll take 3 more counts, you will be kicked off the wikia for the 3 counts of profanity.
What happens once you're banned?Edit
When you are banned, a red sign turns up & it will tell you that you have been locked out. It will look like this:
There will be terms of what you can & cannot do on the wikia anymore. If it is an editing dysfunction, you can still converse between all of the users, but are forbidden from being able to edit. If it's a problem with conduct between users, you will be blocked on the grounds of both editing & conversation.
How to undo a banishment?Edit
If you are banned from editing, you may contact myself or any other administrators & ask if you could be allowed to edit again. If you are banned from conversation, you'll have to send an email or leave a message on a talk page on another wikia of the desired administrator. If you have a good reason & you explain your actions, you could be let back on, depending on the severity of your past actions.
