- Posting child pornography or any other content that violates applicable law concerning child pornography;
- Soliciting personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18 for an illegal purpose or violating any applicable law regarding the health or well-being of minors.
Editors who attempt to use Wikimedia projects to pursue these activities will be indefinitely blocked from all projects.
Reports of editors engaged in such conduct should be made to the WMF at: email@example.com
Email reports are preferred, as public comments suggesting a contributor is engaging in such conduct may be considered libel, or may involve unacceptable privacy issues for the editor or for a minor. Such comments can be removed by any editor, and may be deleted.
Some wikis have local policies about this.
- Editors who attempt to use Wikipedia to pursue or facilitate inappropriate adult–child relationships, who advocate inappropriate adult–child relationships (e.g. by expressing the view that inappropriate relationships are not harmful to children), or who identify themselves as pedophiles, will be blocked indefinitely.
Some go no further, others have additional details.
