Inspired by our local wikis and other community sites around the web, we recently created a Wikia-wide set of community guidelines. We hope these inspire new wiki founders while building up their communities, as well as guide new users as they gain experience on Wikia. These are not all meant to be hard and fast rules (although some do overlap with our Terms of Use), but provide guiding principles for wiki community growth and sustainability. We strongly encourage wikis to create their own specific guidelines and rules that fit their community and topic. Please feel free to share them here for others to see.

A quick recap of our Community guidelines, (which can be found in full at Community Guidelines)

  • Jump right in!
  • Collaboration is key
  • Be openminded
  • Assume good faith
  • Be nice
  • Welcome new users
  • Spread the word!
  • Ask for help
  • Make sure to properly cite content (don't plagiarize)
  • Ignore the trolls
  • Leave the drama behind (avoid personal attacks, namecalling and arguments)

And always remember, online communities involve real people. Have fun and let us know how we can help!
