Policies, however, are not just recommendations: they are rules that all members of the community must follow. No editor may be blocked for not following a guideline; however, breaking policies may result in disciplinary action ranging from a warning to a permanent suspension.

Warnings and Blocks

No sanction may be applied to a user for not following a guideline, as guidelines are only present to resolve disagreements between users. Sanctions may be applied to users who do not follow a policy, but, if they are contributing in good faith, this should only be done after they have been warned and notified of the policies, such as by a message placed on their talk page or message wall. Editors should not remove any warnings from their message wall, as this serves as documentation regarding what actions have previously been taken for policy violations and ensures consistent application of wiki policies to all editors

The wiki's warning system provides multiple opportunities for editors to resolve policy violations before they are blocked. Editors who are found to be acting in malice are exempt from this and maybe immediately sanctioned.
