Listed below are a series of rules that we have put in place here at the Fortnite Wiki to make sure that all users behave professionally and treat others with respect. This wiki is dedicated to the discussion and data-basing of everything Fortnite, and the rules below make sure that everyone has an equal opportunity to do good for the site.

Breaking rules can result in different punishments depending on the severity. Following these rules will allow the site to be properly maintained and make sure everyone here gets along. Repeat offenses may ramp up the longevity or severity of your punishment, so make sure to follow them and learn from your mistakes.

By extension of these rules, you must also be mindful of Fandom's Terms of Use.
