FANDOM


This page will be continously updated, please check here everytime you log into the wiki to see if there is anything new.

General Rules

  • The talk page is not a comments section on social media. It is for possible questions or topics concerning what the page is about or the page itself. Threads that consist of "Joe Davis is a cool guy." will not be tolerated.
  • Do not vandalize anything on the Wiki - articles, profiles, or otherwise. Vandalism results in an instant permanent ban.
  • Do not edit other members' profiles. If they need to edit something, they can do it themselves.
  • Do not harass other members.
  • Do not spam. Spam will result in a 3-day ban. Spam includes posting random, off-topic, unnecessary things to articles.
  • Making frivolous, asinine edits to articles for the sake of gaining badges will result in a 1-day ban per frivolous edit.
  • If an admin asks you for your age, you are obliged to answer the question. We need to know the ages for documentation purposes. Refusing to do so will result in an immediate and permanent ban.

Picture/File Upload Rules

  • Do not upload anything to the wiki that isn't to be used in an article.
  • Do not upload screenshots that are cropped or are from a video of the game.
    • If there's no obstructions and the screenshot is high quality, exceptions can be made, however annotations must be disabled, there can't be any facecam, and the video progression bar must be lowered before the screenshot is taken. Do not crop an image to get rid of any of these obstructions, make sure they're gone first. Otherwise, the image will not be accepted, and if you upload it, it will be deleted.
  • Do not upload duplicate images to the wiki. Check first.
  • If you want to use a picture not on the wiki in your profile or for discussion, upload it to an external site. Sites like Photobucket and Imgur are free and easy to use.

Editing Rules and Guidelines

  • Use only "Downfall" to refer to the remake, as the wiki is centered around that game. If you need to refer to the original game, put "Downfall - A Horror Adventure Game."
  • Remember to always use a character's full name first when they're mentioned and then their chosen nickname after that. If you're not sure what their full name is, look at their page. In the case of Dr. Frank Zellman, he would be mentioned by that name upon first instance, and would be referred with Doctor Z in every instance afterwards. He would, however, never be referred to as any other name but Dr. Frank Zellman or Doctor Z, as he's never referred to as such throughout Downfall.
  • Be sure to thoroughly read an article before you edit it. The information you are about to add may already be there.
  • Images should only be at the top of a page, in an infobox if possible, or in the gallery section below. They should never appear in the content space alongside text. This is not Wikipedia.
  • Do your best to have proper grammar and spelling when editing articles.
  • Do not create new articles without permission from an admin.
  • Do not create new categories without permission from an admin.
  • Do not add duplicate files to the articles.
  • Do not upload duplicate files. Check through all the photos to make sure it's there first.
  • Just because certain places, locations, or items are found in Downfall does not warrant them to have pages if all their information can simply be found on Wikipedia or any other site. An example would be this:
    • Quiet Haven Hotel is an ingame only location - no information of it can be found on Wikipedia.
    • Harvester Games is an exception because they do not have a Wikipedia page and can contain enough information to warrant a page.
  • Use US writing. Example: Color and Colour, color would be correct in this case
  • An admin's word on an edit is final. Any attempts to disobey this rule will result in a 24-hour ban. Further attempts will result in longer bans, including a permanent ban if it is deemed necessary.

Chat Rules and Guidelines

  • Do not post links to shock sites. While some NSFW images are acceptable as long as a warning is posted beforehand, shock sites or anything similar are not alright and will get you permanently banned.
  • This includes screamers as they can seriously harm someone.
  • While swearing is fine, this is a wiki about an 18+ game after all, it gets real old if your comments mostly consist of "fuck."
  • No threatening harassing or insulting other Users.
  • Simply; don't be an ass to other users and be considerate.

You can get kicked or banned off the chat if you continue to do any of the above mentioned, you can even get a permanent ban if you do this excessively.
