Manual of Style | Blocking Policy | About Brick Wiki

Blocking is the means by which an administrator prevents a user account or IP address/range from editing Brick Wiki. Blocks are preventive rather than punitive measures used to prevent damage by dealing with vandalism and enforcing our policies. Block duration may vary, depending on the severity and longevity of vandalism, but in most instances a block can be lifted if the editor agrees to stop the damaging behavior.
