These are the three central tenets that all Diep.io Wiki Staff (including Interns) must follow if they wish to retain their User-Rights & remain on Staff. Failure to comply with these can result in demotions, being fired outright, or in a full ban from the Wiki. Ignorance of these policies is not an excuse for breaking them.
“I am a free inhabitant of the Earth…all the rights of a US citizen without following any of their laws”

This is rather self-explanatory; it is the attitude, or belief, that the policies either do not apply to oneself or that they need not be applied to all users equally (read: Cronyism).
In essence, this is inactivity, or the underuse of power. Failure to fully utilize the powers you have been granted may result in a demotion to a lower level. Repeated streaks of inactivity may result in ejection from Staff.
This is essentially the opposite of neglect; it is the overuse of power. It is also the tenet with the most serious repercussions because the potential for abuse is so great, so it is explained in great detail below.
Using unofficial mass edit tools from personal accounts instead of from a bot account.
Using Administrative privileges to silence opposition & to hide when you have done something questionable.
Failure to maintain the respectability that is expected of such highly trusted users.
Any other exercises of Community Administrator Rights that a Senior Administrator deems to be unacceptable.
↑Those with higher user rights, such as Administrators, must still follow the policies below, as they possess the powers of those below them.
↑Avowed vandals may be banned for longer periods of time, & sockpuppet accounts may be banned indefinitely. Violation of this rule is judged on a case-by-case basis.
↑Removing threads for abusive reasons such as to silence opposition or to curb free speech violates this rule.
↑Closing Threads to stop a conversation you do not want to happen breaks this rule.
↑Semi-protecting the top-level User Page is acceptable & sometimes even required.
↑If the user in question is currently banned, then both the main User Page & the User Talk Page should be given full protection which expires at the same time as the ban. This is to protect those pages from normal users who might spam them while they are banned & unable to protect their User Pages.
↑Does not apply to User Talk Pages, only normal Talk Pages.
