User Treatment Policy
All editors are equal. No one is more important than anyone else. No one's opinion matters more than anyone else's. No one gets any special treatment, including administrators.
"Cool Story Bro"
While in an ideal world we'd like to be able to take into consideration people's circumstances, it is far too easy to lie about one's circumstances in an attempt to circumvent the rules or gain attention. As such, illnesses, disabilities, and other personal circumstances cannot be taken into consideration in the event of vandalism, UTP violations, or other similar actions that would otherwise merit a ban.
"It was my brother/sister/friend"
It's easy to blame your sibling or friend for vandalism or other misbehavior coming from your account. However, not only can this not be proven, it doesn't detract the fact that your IP address is clearly being a problem. Also if this is coming from a registered account, then the account will be deemed as insecure and will be blocked for security reasons. Therefore, unblock requests with the reasoning that it was a sibling/friend at fault will not be approved.
Do not be afraid of administrators. They are editors just like everyone else. If you have a complaint about an administrator, don't be afraid to tell the administrator.
