Policies vs. Guidelines

Throughout the rules, you will see notes as to whether a certain rule is a policy or a guideline. Policies are principles that members of the community must follow.

  • e.g. user behavior, earning additional user rights, page creation, what information can be on a wiki page, and FANDOM policies. 

Guidelines are recommendations that are frequently used to resolve conflicts among editors.

  • e.g. how pages should be formatted and how administrators give out blocks.

No sanction can be given to an editor for not following a guideline, and informing a user of a policy is generally necessary before a sanction can be given.

FANDOM policies apply

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wikia.

Some FANDOM policies apply to all FANDOM communities. These policies include the terms of use, the privacy policy, and the community creation policy. These policies are created by FANDOM staff and their enforcement is out of the control of this wiki. However, this wiki specifically enforces the FANDOM Community Guidelines and the user conduct section of the terms of use. Violation of FANDOM policies (ie: death threats, harassing other editors) is grounds for an immediate block.

The Roblox Wikia is not affiliated with The Roblox Corporation

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wikia.

The Roblox Wikia administrators and moderators are not Roblox administrators. Please contact Roblox's support team on their support page for any concerns regarding your Roblox account. We cannot do anything about your Roblox ban, give you free Robux, or activate expired promotional codes.

Users must follow user conduct policies

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wikia.

Main article: Project:Policies and guidelines/User conduct

Users are expected to abide by FANDOM's User Conduct policies. In general, treat others the way that you want to be treated. A guiding principle on the wiki is to assume good faith with every editor. As many children read the wiki, profanity is not allowed, unless it's in an encyclopedic context.

New editors may have their edits restricted

This wiki sees upwards of 1,500 editors editing a month (1,542 in the last 30 days) and a small subset of those editors intend to disrupt the wiki. To combat these editors, the wiki employs the use of several countermeasures to prevent malicious edits.

For this reason, some new editors may find their edits falsely caught by our edit filters. Sorry for the inconvenience! This restriction will be lifted for users as they continue to contribute to our wiki.

Pages created must follow notability policy and other creation policies

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wikia.

Main article: Project:Policies and guidelines/Page creation

There are criteria for making pages. In general:

  • Players need to have at least 1,000,000 place visits
  • Games need to have at least 1,000,000 place visits
  • Groups need to have at least 15,000 members

Pages that do not meet these criteria may be moved to the userspace or deleted. Players can protest a non-notable page on the Protesting Deletion board.

Any vandalism is reason for a minimum 1 month block

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wikia.

Vandalism is not allowed and will result in at least a one (1) month block. Attempted vandalism that is thwarted by our automated edit filters will be treated the same as any other vandalism as far as blocking is concerned.

If you spot any vandalism, please report it to an administrator (or the VSTF if no admins are currently present).
