The Real Racing 3 is a Wiki primarily dedicated to the game Real Racing 3, developed by Firemonkeys Studios and published by Electronic Arts (EA).

Users agree to follow this policy once having made their first contribution (editing/commenting etc.) to this Wiki.

It is important to notice that the Real Racing 3 Wiki is not affiliated with Firemonkeys Studios or Electronic Arts (EA) at all. It is completely unaffiliated with the development process.

  • Administrators have the right to extend bans if needed. A ban will in most cases be explained on the users Wall. Wall edits are left open for comments in case a user feels the ban is unjustified.

Changes to Rules

No major changes to be reported from the list by Kuzz, mostly clarifications, especially as the status of the site has evolved since.

  • Swearing: as a few users go above and beyond what could be considered "within limits", causing a knock-on effect, leading more people to swear. Most everything that one could wish to say can be done without being offensive and is especially unfavourable when having a public rant about the game, which no-one on the site can help with. There is no set list, as context is often a factor. To help with understanding where the line lies, here are some guides:
    • George Carlin's "Seven dirty words".
    • Innocuous words used contextually in an attempt to be derogatory to an aspect of the game/developers/site (excluding 'soft' words such as "stupid").
    • Any words, regardless of severity, with a religious or sexual connotation. These hold no relation to RR3 or its community here.
    • Contributors may choose to bypass these by censoring themselves and adding at least one character to the word(s) in question.
  • Real-life introductory information (meaning information that cannot be obtained from RR3) should be detailed in the first section of a Car, Manufacturer, or article page only and limited to one or two brief paragraphs.
  • As such, barring any new content, manufacturer and car navboxes are accurate and do not need to be changed. The Base PR stats for each car are also accurate and do not need to change. Therefore, any table page detailing cars with their base stats only is accurate.
  • The design of category has been completed, (see here), barring new content there is no need to add categories to article pages.
    • Since this is considered part of the wiki design, new categories can only be added by members of the admin team.

Ban Lengths

Though each case will be treated on an individual basis and attempted to be resolved without bans, consistent and persistent infractions will result in an initial ban ranging from 1 day to 1 week or longer, based on the severity (judged by the admin team) Note: All bans will be discussed within the admin team and the outcome will be based on the democratic process. Zero tolerance situations can be handled by only one team member. Users that have been blocked in the past will have the initial ban at least doubled if further infractions occur.

Signed-in members will receive a more lenient approach, as long as their previous contributions have been mostly beneficial. The same logic cannot be applied to Wikia contributors, though, as IP addresses tend to change periodically. Banned users suspected to be bypassing an ongoing block by altering their IP address will be blocked again and have their ban extended.

Vandalism and abuse of other users are subject to a zero-tolerance policy and users found attempting either will be blocked without warning for a length of time anywhere between 3 months and infinite.
