Please respect these rules when editing.

Read all the rules pages before editing, just reading one does not cut it.

Standards

  • Please see the Standards page for information regarding the proper way articles should be written and ordered. It is important to follow these guidelines to keep information in an encyclopedic format.

General rules

  • Do not vandalize current articles. Continued vandalism or history of vandalizing other wikis will result in a block. Longer periods of time will be given to those whose vandalism is more serious. If you see a user vandalizing, revert the edit(s), or contact an administrator for help.
  • Do not join the wiki if you have an inappropriate user name. This includes, cussing, crude humor, sexuality, hetrophobia, and pornographic subjects.
  • No offensive articles with sexual implication, suggestive themes, vulgar language, or racist remarks.
  • Do not make articles unrelated to Cuphead, or consisting of fan work. If you see one, attach the Request for Deletion tag on the article.
  • Please respect neutrality.
  • Anyone of any age is allowed to contribute to the wiki, however keep your identity private.
  • Do not change pages to foreign languages, or spelling. (i.e replace "Devil" with "Diablo" or "Color" with "Colour")
  • No promoting terrorism and/or Satanism.
  • Do not add or discuss controversial topics (i.e sexuality, religion, etc.)
  • Respect other users. Personal attacks are not acceptable in any form.
  • Abide by all Wikia Terms of Use while on the site (you agreed to these if you made an account).
  • Do not steal other users' content. If someone shares fan-art, fan-music, etc, always ask for their permission before using.
  • Refrain from fighting and causing "edit wars" on articles. It is considered edit warring if someone were to make or undo the same edit more than three times in a twenty-four hour period. If such conflict should occur, the proper steps to be taken in this scenario should be for those users along with others to have a respectful discussion on the article's talk page. The convention is for the article to be left as it was prior to the disputed edit, representing the last accepted revision, until an overall consensus is reached.
  • No advertising on articles.
  • GIFs - animated images - are allowed in articles within light moderation. Excess GIFs will be removed.
  • Do not impersonate other users.
  • If there is a large amount of vandalism that needs reverting, you may request Rollback status.
  • When editing, assume good faith when other users edit.

Blog and Forum rules

The Cuphead Wiki community has decided on a set of rules for the social aspect of the wiki. Blog and forum rules will be interpreted and enforced by the administration team

  • Profanity is allowed in moderation - keep it light and within reason.
  • Harassing/insulting other users is not allowed.
  • Spamming, this includes;
    • Posting long gabs in between comments.
    • Posting gibberish.
    • Talking in all caps.
    • Adding long, repetitive posts.
    • Putting random images into comment sections with no context (ex: Posting a Five Nights at Freddy's picture with no caption or anything, just the image).
    • Repeating the same words or characters nonstop.
    • Constant posting of references to the same thing (ex: Referencing Terraria constantly and only referencing Terraria.)
  • Do not discuss sexual or pornographic topics.

Discord rules

The Cuphead Wiki uses the Cuphead subreddit's Discord server as chat, where users may discuss Cuphead and other topics.

  • The Discord server has its own moderators and owners - respect the rules placed by both this page and any rules within the server.
  • Please read the #devils-contract channel before chatting - this channel contains all of the rules of the server.
  • Harassing other users is not allowed.
  • Spamming (submitting many nonsensical, very long, or repetitive messages) is not allowed unless permitted by the admins or moderators.

Moderation rules

The Cuphead Wiki has selected a handful of users to act as administrators or content moderators - while these users have higher privileges than a normal user, they must also follow the rules and use their position responsibly.

  • Users who have broken the rules should be blocked in accordance with the severity of their actions - infinite, or indefinite, blocks should only be used as a last resort.
  • Do not abuse your position to intimidate/silence a user by unjustly removing edits or messages - as with editing, assume good faith.
  • If you believe yourself to have been unjustly blocked, contact a member of the administration team to appeal your block. If you cannot leave messages on the Cuphead Wiki, leave a message instead on the message wall of the moderator who blocked you on Community Central in order to appeal your block - follow all other rules and dispute your block respectfully.
  • You may request moderation privileges, if the admin/bureaucrat does not respond, do not continue to bug them about it by spamming repetitive messages on their wall.

User Space rules

These rules apply to user pages, including user home pages and user talk.

  • Do not edit another user's home page without that user's permission. Standing invitations for anyone to edit a section, such as guestbooks or sandboxes, count as permission for that section. If you believe a user is breaking a rule on their home page, contact an admin; do not edit their home page on your own.
  • Harassing/insulting other users is not allowed.
  • Do not discuss sexual or pornographic topics.
  • Profanity is allowed in moderation - keep it light and within reason.
  • You may not alter any talk page message, or comment, left by another user, except to remove any profanity, insults, or vandalism.

On your own talk page

  • You may change the formatting of text and archive old messages.
  • After you have read a message, you may delete the message, in its entirety, at any time. If the message has already been responded to, delete the responses at the same time.

On another user's talk page

  • You may leave any user a message at any time.
  • You may not delete messages from others.
  • Do not constantly post messages on a users wall about their recent edits.
  • Do not continue to tell moderators if someone edits, unless it's reporting vandalism.

Ways to stay neutral

  • Do not only provide one point of view, but all relevant viewpoints as necessary.
  • Support your article with actual facts.
  • Use a reliable source.

Ways to detect bias

There are ways to detect if the article is biased. Here's how.

  • The article only provides one point of view.
  • Facts come from a biased source.
  • Is the article lacking in diversity of content?
  • Does the article go off on tangents?

Cleaning up bias

Cleaning up bias may be difficult, but it can be done.

  • Gather facts from other perspectives or other points of view.
  • Make sure your sources are not biased.
  • Support your facts with valid sources.
  • Never use user comments.
  • Make sure your facts deal with the article.

Follow these rules, and have fun on the Cuphead Wiki!
