Guidelines
Our wiki has a Discord server! If you want to contact our staff, or just come hang out, you can join with https://discord.gg/SHqP4m9 1. General Rule Be nice and treat people with respect. Keep discussions civil and be open-minded about differing opinions. 2. Undefined Rules Discussions Moderators and other staff reserve the right to delete and lock posts, in addition to banning users on their own discretion if an user is behaving in an inappropriate manner, even if the user or post does not explicitly infringe upon any of the guidelines. If you feel a moderator has abused their power, contact us on Discord. 3. Soliciting Upvotes Threads and posts that solicit upvotes will be deleted. 4. Language This is an English language wiki. Threads and replies entirely in foreign languages are not allowed. However, using foreign languages in addition to English is fine as long as the post is mostly in English, and it's understandable to an English-speaking user. 5. Controversial Topics Refrain from starting a thread or a conversation, or posting a meme or joke about any sort of controversial topic, whether it is present or past, as it is prone to cause flame wars. 6. Spam and Vandalism Spamming, trolling, or vandalizing of any kind will be deleted and will lead to your account being blocked. 7. Sharing Content and Advertising Sharing or advertising fan content (such as streams, let’s plays, fan art, etc.) is allowed as long as said content does not infringe upon any other guidelines. Staff have the right to forbid users from advertising, if said user or their content does not benefit the community. 8. Cursing Cursing will be generally accepted on the Discussions. Cursing will not be permitted in cases where it is directed in a negative fashion at another user, or group of users, or if it detracts from the friendliness of the conversation. 9. Derogatory Language Refrain from using derogatory language and slurs, i.e. terms relating negatively to a person’s sexuality, ethnicity, religion, mental or physical condition etc. A rule of thumb to use would be if the word could offend someone in the way you use it, odds are you shouldn't say it. 10. Flame Wars Flame wars are absolutely never tolerated on the Discussions. All parties involved in a Flame War will be held accountable, regardless of who started it. 11. Links Links are permitted so long as the content found on the site is appropriate. Disallowed links include links to sites that are in any way affiliated with pornography, piracy, or hacking. However, borderline NSFW imagery (i.e. no nudity) is allowed if a warning is posted and the thumbnail for the site/image is removed. 12. User Info Profile pictures, bios, or usernames with inappropriate content are not allowed. This content includes but is not limited to: images with nudity or gore, descriptions of sexual acts, threats etc. Users with such pictures, bios or usernames will be asked to change them to something appropriate within 24 hours, or face a two day ban. 13. Impersonation Impersonation of other users or famous people will not be tolerated. 14. Account Creation Abusing account creation, i.e. creating new accounts for trivial reasons, such as changing one's name, is not allowed. If you have been banned and return on a new account, your posts will be deleted and your new account(s) will be blocked. 15. Derailment On any thread users should strive to discuss the topic set by the original poster. Derailing a conversation, be it on accident or on purpose, is not allowed. 16. Categories When making a post, be sure to select a category. Setting the appropriate category for your post helps other users find the kinds of threads they want. General can be used for posts passable for any category. Dark Souls (I), II, III and Remastered categories can be used for anything involving that game. The off-topic category can be used for posts not relating to Soulsborne content. 17. Spoilers Spoilers are considered the posting of any information about content of which not everyone on the Discussions may have seen or played for themselves. If any content is less than two months old, this rule applies to it. Spoilers should be marked, and they should be located low enough in the post so users only scrolling by won't see them. If the spoiler is a picture, post it in the comments, as image thumbnails are always visible on the main page, regardless of how low the link is located. Unmarked spoilers will be marked and hidden, or deleted in the case of images. 18. Weekly Threads Weekly Threads are staff-made threads where you can chat with other users without fear of breaking the derailment rule. Users may discuss any topic they wish, as long as the discussion stays civil and does not break any other guidelines. Threads for memes and other pointless threads will be directed to the weekly. On every Monday, the previous week’s thread will be locked, and a new one will be made in its place. 19. Reporting Please report any messages you think break the guidelines or are otherwise inappropriate. It helps the staff’s work tremendously. Spammy or pointless reports are disallowed, however. 20. Questions Ask for help. Notice something that doesn't seem right? Or do you just have a question? Contact Fandom staff through "Give feedback" on the Settings screen, or contact the Dark Souls Wiki staff on Discord.
