Block, otherwise known as Banning, is a method used by the Administration as a way to prevent users from editing on the Mahou Tsukai no Yome Wiki. This can be performed by an Admin should a user repeatedly break the rules of the wiki. Blocked users or those with blocked IP addresses will still be able to read the wiki, but will not be able to edit, upload files, add comments or chat.
Any user may request a block to one of the Administrators for major incidents of vandalism or disruption. Users requesting blocks should supply credible evidence of the circumstances warranting a block. Administrators are never obliged to place a block and are free to investigate the situation themselves. Because blocks may be reviewed and appealed, it is often important that the blocking and reviewing Administrators each communicate with and take care to inform the other.
Blocked users can appeal their blocks by making a statement on their Message Wall (unless the user was also blocked from posting on their own Message Wall, which should only be used in for major vandalism). Except in cases of unambiguous error, Administrators should not undo other Administrators' blocks without prior discussion (see below).
The Mahou Tsukai no Yome Wiki uses a 5-Step Warning System when it comes to Blocking/Banning users. While this a mandatory procedure for the administration, it will not be necessary in the case of severe vandalism or harassment on the wiki (harassing/bullying another user, acting childish, and being inappropriate), from which the Admin has the right to immediately ban the user causing trouble.
- First Offense: Warning
- Second Offense: Warning
- Third Offense: 1 Month Ban
- Fourth Offense: Warning
- Fifth Offense: Banned for Life

Examples of Vandalism
To better understand the difference between severe vandalism and minor vandalism on this site, the following segment will give some (but not limited to) examples of what this could include:
Making an edit where an admin has to go and perform a rollback to fix a mistake and/or vandalism and you return to change it again, repeated instances where a contributor will repeatedly edit articles with bad grammar and sentence structure without proofreading before saving, or other edits not made in good faith. Should the user perform this action more than 3 times then they'll a verbal warning.
Should the user perform acts of vandalism that goes beyond the simple repetitive edits, such as completely removing the content of a page or changing it to inappropriate or offensive content, then this will be viewed as severe vandalism and will be immediately banned.
