  • Please be aware that the Ultimate Spider-Man Wiki is a encyclopedia, not a social networking site. Users are prohibited from creating accounts simply to socialize, as content remains the most important focus. Therefore, users must adhere to the following guidelines regarding their userpages:
    • Do not create fanon profiles.
    • A userpage created by a user that has never contributed to the wiki will be deleted. Solely commenting and interacting on talkpages is not considered contribution.
    • Do not create a userpage for the purpose of a sandbox. Please use either the public sandbox or create a personal one. Sandboxes created for unrelated content to the wiki will be deleted.
    • Users who wish to use images on their userpages must adhere to the image policy.

Talkpages exist to facilitate individual messages relevant to the users' activity on the wiki, such as communicating with others to collaborate on how to improve the wiki and settle conflicts. Therefore, users must adhere to the following guidelines regarding their talk pages:
    • Talkpages are not userpages. Content that is added by users that is akin to content that belongs on a userpage will be deleted.
    • Do not remove or edit old messages, as the talkpage is the community's way of viewing the history of messages sent to a user.
    • If a talkpage is getting large and a user wants to clean up old messages, please archive the old messages.
    • Do not put up notices telling other users not to use your talkpage, or do other actions that hinder users' abilities to send messages to you.
    • Messages can be removed from a talkpage if they are in violation of Terms of Use. This is the ONLY acceptable reason for removing messages from a user talkpage. To clarify, disputes between users that takes place on a talkpage does not qualify as an acceptable reason for removal, as it is important for administrators to keep a close eye on the users' conduct during a discussion and respond accordingly to the evidence of misconduct provided.
    • Topics that are inappropriate and irrelevant with no meaningful elements relating to the series or the wiki are prohibited. If users wish to socialize, do so either on the Chat or offsite. A user's personal information should not be posted on the talkpages for security reasons.
