All content on this wiki must be in line with the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License. All content can either be exactly under that license (this applies e.g. by default to all text, unless stated otherwise), or can be compatible with that license (this applies e.g. to images which are not under the GFDL itself).

No content shall be added which violates any applicable law, including local, state, national, and international laws.

Any content on this wiki is the responsibility of the person who uploaded it or added it to a wiki page. The host of this wiki does not control the content and does not approve the content before it is published. Although the host is not obliged to do so, they have the right to remove any content for any reason, including but not limited to a violation of the wiki's terms of use and policies.

Page histories are archives as defined under the US Copyright Act.

Collection of personal information[edit]

User information is stored on servers in the United States. The only information that you need give is a username and password. The username does not need to be your real name. Therefore, any personal information you choose to give is not compulsory. This wiki is not intended for, and may not be used by, children under the age of 13 years old.

If you choose to enter a real name in your preferences, this will be publicly available. However, this field is optional, and there is no requirement for any user to give a real name.

Information from our server logs may be stored and used to gather aggregate data about users, and used to determine whether the identity of one or more users is the same in cases of abuse. This data includes your IP address, and details about your browser.

Your browser must permit cookies to be set in order for you to log in to the wiki. If you do not make an account on this wiki, you need not accept cookie requests from this site.

Edits by users who are not logged in will show the user's IP address in the page history of the article they edited, and also in other places on the site, including watchlists and recent changes, and in any external feeds made of such pages.

Disclaimer of warranties[edit]

Except in those jurisdictions which do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties, the host expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind and shall not be liable for any damages or losses whether directly or indirectly related to your use of this site or its content.


If any term, condition or clause of these terms of use is found to be invalid then the remaining terms, conditions and clauses, shall remain valid.

Adult content[edit]

Content of an adult nature is permitted in this wiki, but the Spanking Art wiki must not include any text, images or other media that could be considered pornographic. For a start, please see the Wikipedia article on pornography for legal definitions of pornography. Since spanking art often includes children it is also important to know the legal definitions of child pornography which are in some respects more inclusive than those of adult pornography, so please refer to child pornography for basic information on this.

Articles that discuss aspects of human sexuality, including all kinds of paraphilia, are permitted and encouraged. The style of such articles should correspond to the articles on Wikipedia. Everything should be written in a language as factual and objective as possible.

Copyrighted work[edit]

All content on the Spanking Art wiki is published under a free license. You must not add any copyrighted work here unless you are the copyright owner and you are willing to explicitly disclaim any proprietary interest in the work by publishing the work under a free license. All words must be your own, so if you want to use information from another website or book, you can do so but you must put it into your own words. Short quotations of copyrighted textual work as part of a larger article are permissible but must follow proper quoting practices.

You can upload images here only if they are from the public domain or if you are the creator and you're willing to publish them under a free license, or if the copyright holder has already published them elsewhere (e.g. on Wikimedia Commons) under a free license. Pornographic files must not be uploaded here even if you are willing to publish them under a free license.

External links[edit]

External links to commercial and noncommercial websites are permissible in this wiki as long as the sites that such links point to are legal as per U.S. laws. Please specify next to such links "{{18+}}" (creating this:  Warning: 18+) if the sites are rated "for adults only" or AVS protected, or if they offer content that may be considered pornographic or otherwise offensive for some.
