SmashWiki:SmashWiki Status System
The SmashWiki Status System is a framework that dictates the current state of the wiki.
The Status System has four distinct status levels, each with its own associated set of rules. Each level corresponds to the state of the Smash Bros. series in combination with the wiki's current traffic. The current level is displayed on the Main Page and Recent Changes of the wiki.
Note that "no editing restrictions" does not imply that it is okay to stay in userspace or forums all the time, just that the tolerance for such is larger.
|The wiki's current status is +40% Yellow.|
Status changes occur under the following rules:
- Staff members may change the wiki's status at any time, but they are encouraged to discuss with others first if the change has no obvious trigger.
- Any user may modify the current value of the status by a maximum of ±10%, once per 24 hours, and no more than once in a row within 48 hours. Reaching +100% or -100% does not do anything - the value can continue to increase or decrease - but it tells the staff that many users believe the status should be changed. Editing the value is free from SW:1RV as long as the timing limits are adhered to. Users should state their reason for modifying the value as an edit summary.
- In other words: you can change the value once a day, but only if someone else changes it between your two changes. If not, you can only change it once every two days.
- Users and staff may choose to enforce userspace and forum edits slightly differently based on the current state percentage - for example, a +50% Yellow may be more strict than a -50% one.
