To All Hypothetical Tsunamis Staff:

Please follow the following guidelines regarding the site's daily functions to ensure the wiki is running properly.

  • Revert and block simple spam and vandalism. If it clearly doesn’t belong here, make it go away. Remember to erase auto-deletion summaries. If it looks like a user needs to be banned globally, report the situation to a member of the VSTF.
  • Be fair. Consider situations carefully before acting on them. If a user makes an honest mistake, give them the opportunity to learn and improve.
  • Encourage participation. Be friendly and welcoming to members, help them get to know Hypothetical Tsunamis Wiki, and support their interactions.
  • Keep things structured, but not too structured. Do your best to support and maintain the goals and organization of the wiki, but be flexible about growth and change.
