Wiki-wordmark This page documents a Wiki guideline. It is the accepted standard that editors should follow, although it should be treated with common sense, as occasional exceptions will apply. When editing this page, please ensure that your revision reflects consensus.


Please respect these rules when editing. Read all the policy pages before editing, just reading one does not cut it. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact an active administrator.

General Rules

  • Do not vandalize current articles. Continued vandalism will result in a block. Longer periods of time will be given to those whose vandalism is more serious.
  • Do not ask for Sysop (Administrative) status on the Wiki, it will not be given to you. It will, if anything, lower your chance of receiving it in the future. If there is a large amount of vandalism that needs reverting, you may request Moderator (rollback) status instead.
  • No offensive articles with sexual implication, suggestive themes, vulgar language, or racist remarks.
  • Do not make pointless articles. If you see one, place the {{Speedydelete}} template on the article.
  • Please respect neutrality.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Swearing/profanity is not permitted unless you are directly quoting The Last of Us or other related media in an article.
  • Editors with unacceptable/offensive usernames may be banned on sight. If this happens, the administrators will take steps to help you change your username.
  • No moving images in articles (moving .gif's).

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

  1. The article only provides one point of view.
  2. Facts come from the source may be biased.
  3. Is the article lacking in diversity?

  2. Make sure your sources are not biased.
  3. Support your facts with valid sources.
  4. Never use user comments.
  5. Make sure your facts deal with the article.
