Guidelines for De-Escalation Requests

All De-Escalation Requests must contain the following information in order to be considered:

  • A link to the user in question. Preferably bolded for visibility.
  • A criteria for de-escalation. This should be short and to the point, including relevant links A/VD and A/VB if available.
  • A signed datestamp. This can be easily done by adding ~~~~ to the end of your request.

Any de-escalation request that does not contain these pieces of information will not be considered, and will be removed by a system operator.

De-Escalation Eligibility

To be eligible for a De-Escalation Request, the user must fall under one of the following criteria:

  1. 1 Month and 250 Edits: At least 1 month has passed since the user's last vandalism infraction, and they have made 250 good-faith edits to the wiki since the last infraction/striking a user has received.
  2. Invalid Vandalism Ruling: The vandalism data on the user's record is incorrect, because the specific vandalism ruling in question has been subsequently reversed.

Cycle of Warnings and Bans

The cycle of warnings and bans is laid out in these guidelines. De-Escalations will be administered starting with the 2nd warning, then working backwards through bans, and finally ending with the first warning, provided there are no acts of vandalism committed by the user in the interim period.

Permaban Appeals

Users who have been permabanned on UDWiki may have their bans appealed here on the De-Escalations page. To do this, a user must submit a case under the permabanned user's name, preferably with usage of the {{vndl}} template and an explanation regarding why the user should be unbanned. The case will also be noted on the main page via {{Wiki News}}.

Voting will commence for 2 weeks, and a majority of 2/3rds is needed. After the voting period is up, a sysop will review the vote and take appropriate action. If 2/3rds majority has been reached for rescinding the ban, the user will have their A/VD adjusted, and their permaban escalation will be struck, with an added link to the permaban vote. If the user was banned as per the "3 edit rule", they will have the permaban escalation struck but will be left with 2 warnings.

A permabanned user must be permabanned for at least 6 months before they can have the ban appealed. If an appeal does not fit this rule, it may be immediately cycled by a sysop without warning.

Appeals are considered a serious vote. Misuse of this privilege, eg. multiple submissions over a short time, may result in abusers being brought to vandal banning.

Pending De-Escalations

There are no pending de-escalations.
