Blue check This page is considered an ignorable policy on Uncyclopedia.

It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that everyone should follow, unless they don't want to, in which case they are free to ignore it, in which case nobody will care. Please make use of the standing on one knee position to propose to this policy.

  • A flamewar is a prolonged exchange of deliberately hostile messages over the Internet.
  • An edit war or revert war is a conflict between editors on a wiki in which users constantly revert a page between conflicting versions.

Flamewars, edit wars, and revert wars on Uncyclopedia are discouraged. Nobody likes drama or being insulted. Flamewars, edit wars, and revert wars violate our infallible ban policy. Hostile disagreements should not erupt so long as users abide by our policies on consensus, civility, and employ common sense.

When disagreements present themselves, it's best to be open, calm about the situation, and listen, even if the other user is acting like a total jackass. In the event a flamewar, edit war, or revert war erupts, contact an administrator on the issue or note it at our Complaints Department. You should not resort to personal attacks or other unacceptable behavior (such as blanking their userpage) when disagreements arise.

When an administrator intervenes, keep in mind that what the administrator(s) say or do about the situation is final. Hopefully, flamewars are resolved with compromise and administrators employ neutrality in the situation. However, this doesn't always happen. If it doesn't, and you don't get your way, don't make a fuss about it. Move on.
