This article is under construction. Therefore, please excuse its informal appearance while it's being worked on. We hope to have it completed as soon as possible.

These are the warning templates on the Lost Games Wiki:

Once issued, warnings cannot be removed without administrator approval. User talk pages containing warnings can be archived as long as the original warnings are intact.

Types of Warnings[edit]

There are three types of warnings on the Lost Games Wiki, which correspond to offenses of varying levels of severity. In the event of repeated offenses, warnings issued become more severe.

Reminders are minor offenses, which are designated with the {{Reminder}} template. Reminder-worthy offenses include:

  • Frequently writing with poor grammar/spelling
  • Consistently not marking minor edits as minor
  • Consistently marking large edits as minor edits
  • Making a flood of minor edits to one page
  • Using edit summaries for commentary
  • Changing American spellings to British spellings or vice versa
  • Editing user pages too frequently compared to wiki articles

  • Edit warring
  • Removing warnings without administrator approval
