This page details the etiquette expected of WiiBrew users, describes the content not allowed on the wiki, and the reprecussions for violating WiiBrew's policies.

Violations

Copyright infringement

Warez, Virtual Console, and WiiWare piracy is not permitted. This includes talk about "backups", regardless of their legality, and tools related to piracy. This also includes modchips. Content pertaining to Nintendo's own SDK, game resource files, or other leaked information is forbidden.

WADs

WAD information and applications are not allowed, unless it refers to a specific case of a legal WAD (e.g. installing an IOS from a disc). Innocent until proven guilty does not apply here. Tools to install fakesigned WADs are also not allowed.

Vandalism

Vandalism is any addition, deletion, or change to content made in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of WiiBrew.

Username

Choose a neutral username with which you will be happy. Obscene, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate usernames will be banned.

No announcing of web sites, commercial products, etc.

Enforcement

Banning

Any user violating the above rules may be banned from WiiBrew at the discretion of a WiiBrew administrator.

Blocking

Disruptive editors can be blocked from editing for short or long amounts of time.

Page Protection

Pages can be protected against vandals or during fierce content disputes. In addition, pages undergoing frequent vandalism can be semi-protected to block edits by new editors.
