These are topics that the administration reverses the right to make policy for. They are often related to legal matters, server issues, and other topics that are handed down from an outside organization. Our Policies on them will be as well defined as possible, and any other topic that is not on this list has been left up to the community to decide.

Legal Matters

Lylat Wiki is hosted in the United States, which means all of our content is under their legal jurisdiction. For this, the following rules apply:

All content must be sourced
See: Lylat Wiki:Citation Policy for more info on how to source, types of citations, etc.
Unless a member is truly the author of an image, there shall be no claims to Authorship or Ownership made.
If required, the wiki will be treated as the owner of an image.
See: Lylat Wiki:General disclaimer for more info
No other wiki's maybe copied from.

Server Issues

The following are mainly related to storage on the servers, file count, loading times, and other related web site stats.

If possible,
An image shall be in a png file format with a lowercase extension
Music shall be in ogg file format with a lowercase extension
Videos shall be outsourced to Youtube or Similar Video sharing site.

(Note that other formats of images/music are allowed. png and ogg are simply preferred.)

Everything Else

WikiProjects needs administrators approval on certain actions.
Launching a new wiki-project, dissolving an inactive or old wiki-project, merging two projects into one and spiting one project into two needs one administrator's approval, in addition to policies set for by Lylat Wiki:Wiki Project Actions.
With the exceptions above, every other policy can be circumvented and then reversed.
Any contributor can make any action that they believe will enhance the wiki, even if it violates a policy, so long:
  1. as it doesn't violate one of the topics listed on this page
  2. it isn't done with malicious intent
Just the same, any edit can be reversed by an admin or re-edited by another user.

(It is also recommended that you contact a wikiproject before you make certain contributions, but this is not required.)
