  • I just wanted to ask one of the Admins here, what is Fandom's policy on using symbols that could be misconstrued as hate symbols on a user's page. Primarily, when a user is using these symbols for their avatar or in their user name.

    Specifically, I've encountered a user who is using the communist sickle and hammer in both his avatar and in his username. This could be misconstrued as a hate symbol, even if used in jest, especially to a person from a country who lived under the yoke of communism, or suffered a personal family tragedy due to this political ideology.

    How is this any better, than let's say, using a Nazi swastika? And what is Fandom's stance on using such symbols? How should I approach this issue? Any advice would be greatly welcomed.

    Thanks in advance!
