The Jelle's Marble Runs Wiki is a reference tool dedicated to providing an encyclopedia on the YouTube channel Jelle's Marble Runs and the marbleverse of the channel. It is a place for all fans of the channel to build a database about the channel and its series' and is open to edits from all fans (within Fandom guidelines). Below is a list of guidelines, rules and policies that have been discussed and agreed upon in the community and apply to all editors. They are in place to help create a welcoming and fun environment for those who are civil to and assume good faith in others, seek consensus in discussions, and work toward the goal of creating an increasingly comprehensive database about everything in the Jelle's Marble Runs marbleverse. If you have any questions, suggestions, or complaints, please post them on the talk page or contact an admin.
- Membership ages (16 or older in California and the EEA excluding the UK, 13 or older in the rest of the world)
- User Conduct policies
- Keep it civil: Do not make personal attacks on other people. If you need to criticize another user’s argument, do so without attacking them as a person. Do not use bigoted language, including slurs which degrade another person or group of people based on gender, race, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, etc.
- Inappropriate language:Refrain from using inappropriate language. There are lots of fans of the channel that are underage and so you should keep language child-friendly.
- Be a productive member of the wiki: Contribute to the wiki in line with the established processes and conventions. Need help? Ask an administrator! Disrupting the wiki with “edit warring” over differing opinions of a topic with another user or group of users is not productive.
- Do not engage in excessive self-promotion: The wiki is a collaborative community resource for the topic at hand. It is NOT a free place to advertise your related website, YouTube channel, blog, social media account, etc. Have a question about whether your link would be welcome? Ask an administrator!
- Do not harass other users: If somebody asks you to stop posting certain content on their wall, respect their wishes. It is their wall.
- Do follow community guidelines for formatting: When a community has established formatting, it’s important to adhere to that, especially when spoiler content is involved.
The Jelle's Marble Runs Wiki is a place for factual information about the YouTube channel Jelle's Marble Runs and official canon about marbleverse of its series'. It is not a place to publish personal fan-fiction or head-canon for any aspect of the channel or its series' such as your own team ideas, made-up quotes or ideas for future events or series. All of these are welcome in other fan gathering places such as the Reddit or the Discord, but not the Wiki. Any addition of this material will be removed and a friendly reminder of this will be posted to your wall. Repeatedly ignoring this will lead to being blocked, as mentioned in the Blocking Policy. Any additions should also strive to be as objective and factual as possible. Opinions about teams, marbles or anything else should be kept off the wiki and shared in other places such as those mentioned above.
- Jump right in! Don't be afraid to get started. Anyone is free to edit here, so simply click edit and get started! Be bold! If you spot a mistake then fix it, don't just point it out on the Reddit or the Discord.
- Collaboration is key. Wikis are based on the idea that the crowd, collectively, has a greater sum of knowledge than just one individual. That means collaborating with others is the key to creating a successful community. Collaboration means you work together to build, design and make decisions. No one person owns or rules a community site. Rather, it is built, supported and owned by all participating community members.
- Practice open-mindedness & assume good faith. Since sites are open to edit by anyone, users of all skill levels and opinions are welcome to participate. We assume that most people who work on a wiki are trying to help it, not hurt it. If this weren't true, a project would be doomed from the beginning. If you think there is a problem, it's best to ask the user about the issue first, then take any additional steps if need be. If you reverse an low quality edit, lead by example. The most obvious way to do this is by communicating clearly and make that extra effort to leave a new user an encouraging post on their Message Wall, explaining in more detail why their actions have been undone and give them tips to improve and thus prevent that from happening again. When a user leaves a message that can be interpreted in multiple ways, do not assume they meant to attack you. When in doubt, politely ask for clarification. Remember that users from all over the world frequent the Wiki, and some things may quite literally get lost in translation. Be sure to treat others how you would want to be treated yourself. We are all real people here, so treat them as you would someone in person.
- Be nice. Being friendly and nice goes a long way, no matter where you are. Say hello to others, provide help where you can, and ask others if you need assistance. Simply being nice can greatly impact the growth and success of a community.
- Welcome new users. Everyone has to start somewhere, so if you meet a new user who by accident made an improper edit, be nice! It's better to help explain what they did wrong, so they can learn from you, than to leave them a mean message. Remember back to when you were new, and how far friendly advice can go.
- Spread the word! A community is only as strong as all of its members. The more it has, the stronger (and more successful), it will become. So invite your friends, family, schoolmates and others who may be interested. Spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, forums, blogs on the same topic or any place where people who are interested may hang out.
- Ask for help. If you are confused or need help, just ask! There is a lot of help all around you on Fandom, including Fandom's help pages, Central Discussions, local admins and staff. No question is too small!
- Don't plagiarize content. If you are bringing content to Fandom or taking it from here (or to another site), please remember to cite the authors properly. Don't assume that everything on the Internet is open for the taking. Make sure you have permission to use something before you copy it, and follow the rules for attribution when you do reuse. Everyone likes credit for their hard work!
- Don't use the wiki to spam your own links. Wikis are a great place to build content on a specific topic, not a place to spam links to your latest product or to post non-relevant material. Spam will be removed, so please don't add it to begin with.
- Don't feed the trolls. This means that every time you respond to those who try to ruin your work, you are giving them what they want - attention. The more you do that, the more they will be back for more. It's best to be calm, and limit contact with vandals. The less attention they get, the more likely they are to move on. Don't play games with the vandals as this makes it more fun for them.
- Don't make personal attacks. Don't make it personal, or post personal information. Wikis are meant to be a place to collaborate with others on topics that excite you. Pages meant just as an attack on someone will be removed. This includes content posted in articles and messages to other users.
- Never forget to have fun! Our community sites are places to have fun, meet new people, and learn more about your favorite topics. There is serious work to be done, but you should always remember to enjoy what you are doing!
Blocking is the method by which administrators may prevent users from editing the Jelle's Marble Runs Wiki. Blocks are used to prevent damage or disruption, not to punish users.
Accounts and IP addresses may be blocked for behavior that damages or disrupts the wiki, including:
- Recurring vandalism or spamming, including repeated low quality edits with no evidence of attempting to learn or adhere to the editing styles and conventions of the Jelle's Marble Runs wiki.
- Recurring failure to observe the Keep it Civil rule, such as making personal attacks or not adhering to a basic standard of civility
- Recurring harassment
- Continual edit warring. Edit warring refers to an occurrence where users in disagreement over a single issue repeatedly revert each others' contributions relating to the issue, rather than attempting to come to an agreement on it. They are regarded as harmful to a constructive atmosphere.
- The practice of having multiple accounts specifically to cause disruption and obstruct community consensus
- No clearly discernible intent to observe non-behavioral policies
- Accounts with inappropriate usernames
- Repeated addition of non-canon material
- Repeated creation of empty pages
Accounts and addresses may not be blocked for:
- Disagreeing with an administrator; this is conflict of interest
- "Cooling off" purposes; this usually only inflames the situation
- The user was blocked (with or without reason) on another wiki
If you feel you have been unfairly blocked then make a good faith effort to contact an administrator. Good faith means actually giving the admins time to respond. Escalating to Fandom staff when you’ve not given the admins a fair amount of time to respond will not be seen as a good faith effort. At least 24 hours is sufficient. Only send in a support ticket to Fandom about a block if you have made a good faith effort to discuss your block with the admins (or can’t) and the block is longer than 2 weeks. If you meet those conditions, they’ll review it. You will be required to submit a link to said discussion.
The lore of JMR was first created by former JMRC member Stynth and was published on the JMR website. This was seen as canonical and was occasionally referenced in JMR videos. However, once Stynth departed from the JMRC, the lore lost its official status. Stynth and the fan community continue this lore in an unofficial capacity through Project Marblearth. Following discussions between admins and regular contributors, it was decided to treat Stynth's previously official lore and Project Marblearth as a canonical source for JMR lore.
When adding lore to the wiki, it must come from one of these sources:
- Anything published by JMR.
- Articles published on the JMR website (not including articles from the Rollout).
- Articles published by Stynth during his time on the JMRC including articles on the JMRC website as well as smaller posts of the JMR Reddit
- Articles published on the Project Marblearth website.
When adding lore you should strive to reference any additions. Any unreferenced additions may be removed as well as any fan-made content not from one of the sources listed above. If you have your own marble lore you have created that you want to share, feel free to share it in places such as the JMR Reddit or the Discord, but not on the wiki.
