Modern Wiki

Rather than immediately threatening to employ litigation, you should always first attempt to resolve disputes using Modern Wikia dispute resolution procedures.

If you must take legal action, we cannot prevent you from doing so. However, it is required that you do not edit Modern Wikia until the legal matter has been resolved to ensure that all legal processes happen via proper legal channels. You should instead contact the person or people involved directly, by email or through any other contact methods the user provides. If your issue involves Wikia itself, you should contact Wikia Staff. Do not issue legal threats on Modern Wikia pages or user talk pages.

If you make legal threats or take legal action over a Wikipedia dispute, you may be blocked from editing so that the matter is not exacerbated through other channels. Users who make legal threats will typically be blocked from editing while legal threats are outstanding.

Legal threats should be reported to Wikia Staff.

What is not a legal threat[]

A polite, coherent complaint in cases of copyright infringement or attacks is not a "legal threat".

Perceived legal threats[]

It is important to refrain from making comments that others may reasonably understand as legal threats, even if the comments are not intended in that fashion.
