Do not edit another user's post. If another user has written something under a category, do not edit their writing. If you believe another user's post does not follow our guidelines, report it to an administrator.
Please don't discuss theories on the page itself. The Theories page is meant for listing all users' theories rather than discussing theories. If you'd like to discuss a theory, please use the comments section.
Keep all theories appropriate and respectful. All theories should be kept appropriate to a middle-grade level series, and they should not bash other opinions, ships, or characters.
Keep all theories on-topic. For example, do not post a theory about another series or something unrelated to the theory page's theme.
Make sure that all theories have sufficient evidence. Do not post random theories, such as "Sophie will turn into a pineapple."
Be respectful at all times. If you do not agree with a user, please respectfully disagree with them and avoid character, ship, or opinion-bashing. Do not insult, intimidate, or bully other users during a debate -- these debates are meant to be fun and should not turn into shouting matches.
Beware of spoilers. If you have not read the latest book(s), then proceed with caution, because users are free to post spoiler-related content on debate pages.
Keep all arguments related to the debate topic. For example, a ship debate should not be accidentally turned into a character debate. In these cases, please try to steer the debate back onto its original topic.
If a debate gets too heated, a moderator/admin has the power to pause/stop it. This would involve either protecting the page, or deleting it, depending on the scenario.
Debates must use adequate grammar/sentence structure. This is to prevent misinformation and possibly not understanding an argument.
Debate ideas must be approved by an administrator or a moderator to make sure the debates are appropriate and relevant.
Do not bribe, blackmail, or otherwise solicit for votes. All users caught doing this will be removed from the competition.
Do not complain. If you have lost a competition, please do not publicly express your concerns. If you think that something went wrong with the voting or have specific reasons why you should have won, please private message an administrator.
These are expected to be followed at all times, and failure to abide by these guidelines will result in a warning or a blockage.
