The Three Strike Policy is a system consisting of three steps leading to a block and/or ban.
- Strike One: Leave a message on the offending user's talk page, warning them of the policy and that they have one more chance.
- Strike Two: Leave another message telling the user that if they break another rule, they are banned. By this time, you should have contacted a bureaucrat or admin and told them of this user's rule-breaking.
- Strike Three: Get an admin or bureaucrat to block and/or ban the user, depending on if this has happened in the past.
