These rules aren't hard to follow, and can be changed. We're working on the Good Faith policy and we want to build a community. But we still have to have some set things.
Just the Facts, Ma'am.
We're here to talk about the facts from the games. We're not here to read essays on how others feel about it. If you hate Gabi? That's nice. But you don't get to edit her Wiki page to say you hate her, avoid weasel words. Any things like "white bodies are superior" or "Gay People Suck" or anything like that and we'll have to warn or ban you. We can discuss both sides--you don't have to be utterly neutral, but you do have to be respectful.
Drama Deposited at the Door, Please.
We highly suspect some people editing this wiki will not like other people editing the Wiki. In fact, I'm sure of it. That being said, please keep drama to yourself. You come here for the edits and to help out. You don't have to like someone to edit.
This is a factual wiki. We here at the AC Wiki don't want pages about your original characters, your photostories, anything you've made for your town, or anything else fan made. If you would like to list your town info or have things about you here, please make yourself an editor page by creating an account and list them there.
Be a Big Kid.
The essence of a Wiki is that stuff will get edited. This means that if you write a whole article on Tom Nook and someone comes and changes some things in it or removes lines that don't fit, don't get mad and don't cry about it. This is a Wiki, which means everyone should feel free to contribute without thinking they will upset someone--and that edits are going to get taken down if they're poorly done. If you don't want your stuff edited, then a wiki is not for you. If you feel that we need to discuss things, that's what the discussion pages are for. Try not to have edit wars.
Also? If your edits get removed, that's part of being a Wiki. Deal, and don't get mad.
It shouldn't have to be said, you'd think, but no prejudice and bigotry. No racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, religious oppression, or any -isms.
No Unbiased Rumors.
We don't want anything that is a rumor. Old Prototypes of Villagers? Yes. Hints about new game? No thank you. We're here for facts and until rumor becomes fact, it's not fact. And if we see anything about some new game coming out with a cover made in Microsoft Paint, we'll probably eat your face.
Write Like an Adult.
We want this Wiki to be a good resource for any and all people who want to learn or educate people about AC. So write like you're writing for an audience. No netspeak, no gross misspellings, no illegible typing, etc. Try and be as articulate as possible. We don't expect everyone to be a novelist, but we do expect a certain level of grammar and skill; now, it's ok if your punctuation is a bit off or you spell a word wrong, someone else can fix that, but don't purposefully write "teh" or "da".
