Rules and responsibilities that apply to both editors/staff to follow.

We want to give our editors as much leeway as they deserve. We will make an attempt to give warnings where we see suitable for a user to improve and not make the same mistake twice. In some instances, warning will not be granted.

Note: Staff at their discretion may choose to lower or increase the severity of a punishment.

Editing

  • To prevent drama and uncertainty around editing we have a Editing Tips & Guidelines page that we strongly recommend to editors and staff.
  • To keep our site as authentic as possible, we are seeking fact over opinion. If you state "The batman skin is the best skin in the game" it becomes an opinion. Fact and opinion also play a role in fiction vs non fiction. We don't want theories about a page, we want facts.

Rules & Responsibilities of the Fortnite Discussions

Our rules and responsibilities apply to all users including staff. However, it is up to the staff's discretion to decide on a action/punishment.

  • If your thread is locked it could be due to a question being answered, spam or has gone off-topic.
  • If your thread/post is deleted it could be due to unwanted publicity or spam.
  • We typically hand out warnings if a rule is broken. However, in certain situations warnings may not be given out and bans will be issued.

1) While it is most likely impossible to keep things peaceful at all times, we'd like it for users to be civil and open-minded about differing opinions.If you'd ever like to give feedback to someones thread/post please have it constructive instead of destructive. Here are examples of the type of responses:

  • (Good) Constructive criticism is giving feedback and or guidance for ways in which someone/something can improve.
  • (Bad) Destructive criticism is giving feedback that blames, finds faults and or delivers the message in a aggressive or insulting way.

Here is a list of commonly inappropriate behaviors that we will not tolerate:

  • Disrespect, harassment, flaming users, swearing, causing drama.
  • In addition, ban evading, creating alternative accounts (with bad intentions), and impersonation.

2) It is easy to engage in off-topic threads/posts. We'd like to remind you that we specifically are wanting appropriate Fortnite discussions only.

Here are some example of things we don't want:

  • Threads/posts about other games, personal life etc.
  • Threads/posts directed for self advertising. (Self advertising is only allowed to be shared on your user page)
  • Negative threads/posts directed towards users, staff etc.
  • Troll Fortnite threads. (Polls, images etc.)
  • Spam
  • Vandalizing
  • Unrelated images.

3) Trading for Accounts, Cosmetics (gifting) or asking/selling/buying Fortnite/IRL currency is not allowed.
