On this wikia currently, blogs are an enabled feature here. All members are free to create blogs to discuss Naruto-related topics or discussions. The following are a few guidelines to keep in mind when creating a blog on this wikia:
- Blogs must be Naruto-related, or related to the wikia somehow.
- Blogs are not to circumvent the use of a talkpage at any time. That means that once an issue or topic can be answered on a talkpage, a blog should not be used.
- Do not misconstrue blog usage for that of forum discussion.
- Sysops reserve the right to delete a blog they deem to be in breach of any of Naruto Answers' standards of use. The user will, of course, be notified of this before it is done via their talkpage.
- Do not use blogs as a way to post spoilers, future predictions or crazed theories. This is not a forum, there are several websites dedicated to such things that would love your contributions. If any blog like this crops up, they will be deleted on sight.
Naming Blogs Edit
While creative license with regards to naming your blog remains predominantly with you, it may be changed if not found appropriate - in rare cases. A blog's name may be changed simply to following naming conventions on the wikia, so if it's a case where you are creating a new blog, check the list of current blogs on the wikia to see if a similar topic is already present and how it has been named. Character discussions would be the most common example of this.
Blogging Etiquette Edit
Blogs on this wikia fall under the Blogger's Code of Conduct proposed by Tim O'Reilly, and should be adhered to as closely as possible. These consist of:
- Take responsibility not just for your own words, but for the comments you allow on your blog. We do not swear here, at all.
- Label your tolerance level for abusive comments.
- Consider eliminating anonymous comments.
- Ignore the trolls. Their comments will be deleted accordingly.
- Take the conversation offline, and talk directly, or find an intermediary who can do so. The wikia has a chat or speak to a Sysop if intervention is needed.
- If you know someone who is behaving badly, tell them so.
- Don't say anything online that you wouldn't say in person.
