U.S. law takes precedence over California law for most of the issues addressed in this policy, so the policy should reference U.S. law, not California law when that is the case. Rsterbal (talk) 23:00, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

You should create a page and a link to it regarding Wiki Administration[edit source]

Beyond the scope of this policy is some helpful information about wiki administration. This policy should offer a link to that information. Rsterbal (talk) 23:02, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Translations[edit source]

I have created a version with translation markup here. Could it please be implemented? MacFan4000 (talk) 16:26, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Translate-fied, even if I did it on my own. — revi 07:32, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Controversial content[edit source]

I already posted this question on Talk:Terms of Use but maybe it was the wrong place.

Basically we plan moving our satyrical encyclopedia here also because our previous host has the tendency of deleting controversial content such as profanity, sex, gore, sexism, racism, mockery, controversial political ideas or social trends, easily offended VIPs etc. We don't post to promote such things, but just to create fun and sometimes insightful content on our society, and the majority of our content is not like that.

So, if we post content like that (but not child pornography nor personal infos about random non-famous people, that's taboo):

  • Will you delete/block it, maybe without discussing first (like Wikia does)?
  • Will you always assume the accuser is right and we are wrong (YouTube-style)?
  • In case some lawyers sends a threatening letter (most likely from Italy) or worse, are we somehow protected by the servers being in California/Netherland?
  • Did something like that ever happen to you (any wiki), and how did you deal with it?

This is really important for us to know before moving, so if this is the wrong place to ask questions like this too please let me know where. Thanks.--Wedhro (talk) 06:11, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

Keep that in mind, this wiki is not Wikia. We don’t block underage users, as they are harder to detect. OfreporterSend me a message! 10:59, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
This question has been answered here. Not sure what underage users has to do with anything. -- Void Whispers 15:32, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Impact of UK law[edit source]

With the recent establishment of Miraheze as a legal entity in the UK, perhaps the policy should reflect adherence to UK law as well. dross (tcg) 19:50, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

I'll speak to Owen but as far as I know the board are ready with alternate policies as soon as we're at that stage of the migration. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     around) 20:47, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

SEO?[edit source]

The acronym SEO is used twice in the policy, however, it is never defined what the acronym stands for. Sario528 (talk) 20:59, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
