The RWBY Wiki staff have made updates and adjustments to the policies, so please take a look and familiarize yourself with them when you have the time.
Major changes of note include, but are not limited to:
1. A new rule in the Community Policy against excessively and aggressively hating on and bashing the show, its writing, and the crew behind it, including the writers and voice actors. This behavior contributes nothing and merely creates a toxic environment.
The following should not have to be said, but in addition to that, we also forbid making statements about or in reference to desecrating Monty Oum's remains. We do not care if you are joking or using it as a comparison to the quality of RWBY's writing. It is incredibly disrespectful, and it is hurtful to those who knew him.
2. A new rule in the Community Policy against abusing the new Report button. Please use the Report button to report rule violations and misbehavior, rather than reporting a post you disagree with. Spamming the Report button merely clogs up the Reported Comments page and slows down the staff's moderation.
3. An addition to the Speculation section of the Editing Policies that I personally and unofficially like to refer to as the Vernal Rule. During Volume 5, the wiki continued to have Vernal listed as the Spring Maiden until the show itself revealed otherwise, despite the fact that the community figured out the plot twist ahead of time. This is because the wiki articles should reflect what the show is displaying and saying to us, even if the community has a theory that contradicts what the show is trying to say.
4. A new rule in the Editing Policy against impersonating cRWBY, along with a request for actual cRWBY to please verify to us that they are legitimate. We would love to receive contributions from cRWBY, as long as we can verify that it is truly them and they use a registered account so that we can link to the page's Edit History in a citation showing where the information came from. Making an anonymous edit with "It's Miles and Kerry :)" in the edit summary is ill advised because we cannot take that at face value.
