  • Why did you undo my edit on the Help:Closing an account page. It is accurate that FANDOM staff can close an account for multiple Terms of Use violations.

    • Fandom staff generally won't disable account for ToU violations, they will block them. The help page itself further focuses on the users initiative, not on the possibility that staff can do it

    • Ok. I know that FANDOM disables underage users, and I have seen accounts disabled for severe Terms of Use violations

      For privacy reasons, I would rather not provide a specific example.

    • Though I never really saw the difference between globally blocking and disabling: the term "globally blocked" is often used to refer to a disabled account. I think FANDOM usually disables accounts that are underage or that have multiple sockpuppets, though I have seen accounts disabled for other reasons (like I said, for privacy reasons, I will not mention any)

    • In general, Terms of Use offences will get an account globally blocked, if the block is a few months old, it will get disabled. The term "globally blocked" is rarely used to a disabled account; even when it's a sock of another user, they will get globally blocked, not disabled.

      Ok. I have often heard the term "Globally blocked" or "globalled" used to refer to a disabled account.

      “Globally blocked” would actually mean that you are blocked across the entire Fandom network by Fandom staff (also known as “FANDOM Support”.
