Should the situation arise where a user continues to edit in a way that goes against our policies even after being warned on their talk page, please use the following guidelines for a basis as to how long they should be blocked (the admin in question can determine the block time, though these guidelines are here for a reason):
- The first block should be for one day.
- The second block should be for three days, as should the third, fourth, and fifth.
- Make the sixth and seventh for a longer period of time (that is up to admin in question).
- Thereafter, the block time can go from anywhere from the last set time up to permanent (although of course permanent blocking is not advised.
Spam with obvious intention not to edit productively is grounds for an immediate and permanent block, as is the posting of anything obscene or profane.
